ety by bathing hib:candidacy for; g
Governor of Louisiana should lby
this time have learned that there
is no holmpe of success for their un- r
w1se and unfortunate Lafayetto a
But if Mr. Adams were merely c
a weak and unlucky candidate, in- t
capable of exerting any influence e
or arousing any interest among r
tholipeople, his appe:rance in the
political field would only reflect I
upon tho:Judgenmentj] andisagacity t
of his backers, qualities for whose t
short-comings they could not be t
blamed. People with the best in- t
tentions may commnit terrors of
judgement. But the promoters of I
Mr. Adams' candidacy cannot fall t
back on~ any such excuse. Assu
ning to be Democrats, they have a
put forward as their representa-<
tire and standard-bearer a nan
who is the official head of a secret I
organization whose lcading Rdoc
trines are socialistic and commat
ted to class legislation and are di
rectly opposed to Democratic fi
Mr. Adams whatever may be his
profession, is by the very fact of
his membership of the oath-bound g
Farmer's Alliance, which is itself ih
a political party, not a Democrat, a
Ice is, on the contrary, whenever a
the interests of the Allsance,
shall demand, required to do all a
iI his power to advance the cause k
of that organization and that t,
demand may force him to act g
in direct opposition to the
Democracy, whose representative
he aspires to be.
tepudiated by the Democracy
of hisowr~parish, why should hle a,
be taken up by Democrats of any jl
other parish? 4Why should lie le j
honored ty the confidence and a
support: of Democrats who do not e
know hinm,t when he has becnqrc- ~
jected by the Democrats among e
whom he has lived and worked V
for years? So far as we know L
there is nothing against C:Cptain f
Adams as an individual,'tbut as a r
Democrat he has failed;to gain I
the confidence of the] Democrats t
who know him best, and taken
upon his public record he is no t
Democrat at all, or only a Demo
crat subject to the superior de
mands of the Farmers' Alliance.
The Democrats of Louisiana t
need must have as their leader a]
Democrat, tried and true. One I
who acknowledges no political
control superior to the prInciples ]
and claims of the Democratic par
ty. One whom no Alliance, no I
secret political organization, no I
secret dicker between ien outside
the party councils, canl influence a
or control. There is no lack of
such men in Louisiana, but so far i
only one has been brought forward
prominently. This is Mr. Justice I
McEnery, of the State Supreme
Court. his name has been hailed
with general acclaim. HIe has I
been tried in the highest places I
and the people who have trusted
hbia are willing to trust hinm again.
There is no question of his honor
and ability; there is no question
of his I)eiiocracy. These have
been equal to every demand anad
they have been approved in every
station to which he was ca lled. If
he is the people's choice, who

The Primary Election.
The polls in the several pre
cinets of this parish at the iprlanary!
election on Thlursday were each
atdlo:nedl with two ballot boxes orl
two seperate polling pilaces. .In
this precinct of thie lt ward there
were two boxes and two sets of
commissioners, while in Bayou
Sara the boxes were held at dlif
ferent locations of that ciLy.
'Whether either of these rules pre
vailed in more of thle voting pre
cincts throughout the parish than
the other we are not advised, nor
is the question material to the
facts as they stand--That the uni
ty of the party in West Feliciana
nas been lacerated and torn asun
der, and that two separate dele
gations will present their creden-1
tials before the Democratic State I
Convention that is to assemnble at I
Baton Rouge on the 16th inst.
We purposely held this paper
open for the returns in full aecor
ding to the statement of the con- ,
tents of the boxes of each eide
wbich, tnder the circumstance that c
each side's box s ignored py the
other, will be hekl by eatch as ex- ,

trit officers in addition to dele
gttes to the convention.
We endeavored to get a full re
port from the latter gentlemen as
regards the vote pulled for the
several candidates, but as it was
not complete and had not conse
quently been tabulated up to the
time we were forced to close our
a columns, it has to lay over for
J However, both sides have every
reason to be happy to go before
y the State Convention for a solu
e tion of their res.pective differen
e ces, for while the one is confident
- that their candidatb htAs over a
f majority of the delegates already,
f the other is sure their represen
tative haseven more than he.
That the convention will prove
a a cistern of oil on a tub of troubl
ed waters we sincerely wish. And
we believe it will smake usall hap
t py again.
We want every another to know that
croup can be prevented. True croup
- never appears without a warning. The
first symptom is hoarscness; then the
child appear., to have'jtakcn a cold or a
cold may have accompanied the hoerse
ness from the start. Afttr that a pecu
lihar rough cough is developed, which is
l followed by the croup. The time to act
is when the child first becomes hoarse;
a few doses of Chamberlain's Gough
Remedy will prevent the attack. Even
after a rough cough has appeared the
disease may be prevented by using this
reuiedy as directed. It has never been
known to fall. 50 cents and $1 bottles

TtHE NEW ENGLAND MAGAZINE
-For December opens with anI
interesting study of Canadian
journalism by Walter Blackburn
Harte. It is an article that will
attract journalists and laymen in
every corner:of America, and It
will appeal to the former more
especially fromnthe facttilat the
writer is at newspaper man and}
knows the (dffeulties of the craft
t from the inside. Mr. lHarte's re
Smarks, "In a Corner at Dods
SIlcy's", on the tendencies of con
temporary litereture to dispense
I altogether with literary men, will
also interest and amuse journalists
and literateurs. Herbert D. W\ard
contributes a very clever, artistic
story, full of humor and quiet pa
thos, called ''Only an Incident."
a It is finely illustrated by Jo.!H.
a Haticeld, a young artist of great
i promise. "Pen Pictures of the
Bosphorus" is a cleverly written
study of impressionism in words
by Alfred D. F. Hlamlin. It is
boautifully illustrated with photo
graphs anti pen-and-ink aketches
a made upon the spot. An inter
f esting series of articles under the
i caption of "Stories of Salem
1 Witchcraft" is begun in this num
c her. It is by Winfield S. Nevins,
s a writer who is saturated with the
I history and traditions of old Sa
s lem. It is well illustrated by
s Charlas A. Eastman and others.
I The illustrations are becoming
thickly strewn through the Now
r EnglailN Mag:tzine's articles and
it are becoming a seatiCre of the mlla
