New Orleans, La., C The mu nicipal election in Layfayotto, tho onnnio Hfliit nf Lafavctte parish in this state, was stopped to-day by tho sheriff because a fair eleotion was unpossiDie and because a mob armed with rifles had invaded the town, stood around Mm nnnrthonsa and refused to allow fhn nfiitmp to vote.
