Men who voted for Jennings under
pressure are declaring that they will
vote for Welsh in the coming election.
The several boxes in the western part
of the parish which gave a scattering
vote for Jennings, totaling in all less
than 20, now bid fair to give a solid
vote for Welsh. 'The sentiment favor
ing the location of the parish seat in
the CENTER of the parish is also be
coming stronger in the Elton and
Raymopd precincts. The probability
is that Welsh will riecelive a material
lr.crease in those boxes over the splen
did vote Vi ven her in the tirst primary.
In Lake Arthur the Welsh sentiment
is taking a strong hold upon the
voters. arld even Jennings advocates
while cvo fessing that they expect to
vote for J unings, are free to admit
that it looks to Them as though Welsh
would carry the Lake Arthur box.
Under trrese favorable conditions,
Welsh voters are all becoming Welsh
workers, and ate working with a de
termination that promises to over
come any opposition that tJe Town on
the llorder can put up. And unless
some unforseen event occurs. It is safe
to assert that Welsh will carry four.
teen of the sixteen precincts, and will
be elected by a good substantial
Tuajoritv over Jennings.
If 3you want to be with the crowd
that will do the slhouing VOTE Q'OR
WELSH.
