The Carencro Ovation.
'cott, La. April 8th 181)6.
IBy actual count, or..r 410) persons in
attendance, and many ladies gracing the
meeting with their presence. Mr Edi
tor, the grand and eonserratire Demo
cratic rally of Carencro last Sunday the
5th. inst, held under the auspices of
the popular and wrinning People's ticket,
resembled in no wise the noisy, demaog- .
iral gathering of the regulars-Saints of
special train and bloody-shirt memory of
Mch. 22nd. 1896.
P!ain. unvarnished truths were the or
der of the day; men listened with bated
breath to the able. conscientious and pat
riotik addresses delivered by Messrs.
Elliot, Melancon, Campbell, Chargois,
Scranton, and Broussard, tremendous I
applause greeting the different speakers
at every step of the proceedings.
About 2½ miles, at H. Simoneaux's
on the same day, while men assembled
in the spacious Church in course of erec
tion In the town of Carencro, were giv
ing ear to these able and impartial speak
era, another, attenuated and crest fallen
set had assembled around the feast board,
with free beer and gumbo after the time
hono,.ed (?) fashion of tous fraiefaits, of
a few years back, listened to the clatter
or rattling of plates and dishes and the
r convivial clicking of glasses, the while,
ithe man with the paternalairs, Judge
0. C. Mouton belching forth strains of
- oratory reer the heads of 80 or 40 of as
sembled guests.
i The object of this little side-show
e meeting had been to take away men from
. the great Carencro oration.
The "Saints" showed the ,white feather
r lbthis unworthy narrow trck, and only
oa mved, as every one says of them to-day,
tat they are unwilling their adherents
e llt hear both sides the question discuse
