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. The regulators met
yesterday and gave notice of their in
tention to prevent any negroes voting.
Their threat was callnd to the atten
tion of the governor, who doclined to
act until tho law was violated.
TCnrlv fViis tnnmiiuif several largo
bands of regulators j well armed with
Winchester rifles, rode to tho town. A
majority camped just outside the limits,
about thirty or more rode to the court

offered to escort tho negroes wno wibu

them at tho head of a largo number of
blacks, but the moment lie enterea mo
squaro a rush was made at tho party
with cries of shoot "Shoot him," "Kill
himl" Tho negroes fled and tho sheriff
nnlnrnil thfi ROUrthoUBO alODC.
The commissioners, olerk of tho
I court and tho sheriff then decided that
it was impossible to hold an election,
that the force of regulators was too
strong for them and accordingly olosed
tho polls and retired, drawing up a
statement of tho occurences, which
was forwarded to tho governor.

the Southern Pacific, and itsOpelansas
branch. The Regulators, as the mob
call themselves, were organized a year
ago. They include a majority of tho
whites in Lafayette, St. Martin and
neighboring parishes, mainly In the
country districts. Two weeks ago at
the munioipal election in St. Martins
ville, a few miles from Lafayette, these
Regulators raided tho town from the
country distriots.rodo up and down tho
streets firing their rifles and gavo no
tice that no negroes should vote.
Non voted, although, the no
groes constituted moro than half the
population of tho town. There was
then as there" aro in Lafayotto to-day
two Democratic tickets in the field.
Last week the .regulators, 200 strong,

Martinsville, visited all the nogroe
churches and gave orders that there
should bo no prayer meetings held at
night, an 6rder that was strictly oboy
ed last night.
Sheriff Broussard telegraphed Gov
ernor Nichols of the condition of af
fairs in Lafayette, and asked what ho
should do. The governor ordered him
at onco to summon a posse and if any
fit.izAnfl rnftmnd to serve on it to prose-

in arresting ten of tho regulators, and
has them looked up in the parish jail.

stranger occupied a placo in tho hall

tho lectures on literature with great
attention and took voluminous notes.
Week after week and month after;
month this quiot but evidently well
trained gentleman was seen in his ac
customed place. His presence excited
no littlo attention, and his identity no
littlo conjecture. His mohilo and
smooth shaven faco looked strangely
familiar to tho studonts, but they
couldn't "placo" it.
