A Glimpse at the Neaimees for the
BY THE PLAIN MAN.
There was a violent disturbance in the atmospheric condition In Camp
Street last Thursday pnorning, but on investigation it was found to have been
caused by the huge sigh of relief emanating from the Item and Times-Democrat
simultaneously over the joyful news that the Goe-Goos had succeeded in filling
their ticket for the five commissionerships.
So. the Regular Democracy having announced its ticket also, we may take
a cursory glance at the relative merits of the two tickets.
On the Regular side we find the names of Mayor Martin Behrman, W. B.
Thompson, Ed. IAfaye, A. G. Ricks and Harold Newman; on the Good Gov
ernment League slate are Charles F. Claiborne, Louis Pfister, Geo. M. Leahy,
Andrew MoShane and Oscar Schumert.
In analyzing the personnel of the two tickets, the only fair course to pur
sue is to judge each man by his works-what has he done for this city? The
average voter will not support a man simply because he has an ancestry. What
a man's ancestors have done figures but little in the present-day estimation of
his worth. He will be judged by his works alone; not by what the newspapers
tell you he will do, but by what he has done and is doing.
Take. first, the two gentlemen heading the respective tickets. Martin
Behrman's progressive accomplishments stand as a monument to his adminis
tration; anyone who viewed the pictures shown at the Winter Ga-den Saturday
night must acknowledge this as a fact; no tirade of abuse, no malicious insin
uations that may be hurled at him by an opposing press can cloud this issue.
The things he has done stand out in the light and all who have eyes can see.
In spite of all the efforts of a hostile press to discover something either in his
private or public life that would reflect on his character, he stands before you
to-day absolutely without the hint of even suspicion. His administration ap
pears in the same light-honest, capable, efficient.
We pass on to the League candidate, Mr. Chas. F. Claiborne. His press
tells you, and lays much stress on the fact, that he has a long and distinguished
ancestry. So he has; no one will deny him that. But, beside this, what are
hiis civic accomplishments? What has he, personally, done to advance the
welfare of this city? The afternoon organ of the League tells you that Mr.
Claiborne has contributed much to the moral, social and political life of the
city. In what way? Give us some details. And tell us what, beside building
up a lucrative law practice for himself, he has done for the commercial benefit
of New Orleans. We should like to be enlightened. Outside of the social and
legal life of the city, the Plain Man has heard but little of Mr. Chas. F. Clai
Then proceed on down the tickets. Is there any man on the League ticket
whose efforts in behalf of his city stand out like W. B. Thompson's? 'Tis an
idle question, for the answer must inevitably be NO. W. B. Thompson has
always been a worker in his city's interest. It's in the blood of the man to
be so, and his featow-men have shown their appreciation of the fact by contin
ually showering honors on him. He is a natural leader of men, and makes
good no matter where he is placed.
The second big man on the League ticket is Mr. Louis Pfister. Here is
undoubtedly an estimable gentleman, also successful in his business career.
But could you hesitate for one moment in making a choice between Mr. Pfister
and Mr. Thompson for Commissioner? Does Mr. Pister in any way measure
up to the standard of civic accomplishment set by Mr. Thompson? Are the
people simply to take the word of the League press that he will make a good
Commissioner, without themselves knowing that he has done anything to
guarantee the statement of the press? To believe so, is to believe that the
people are foolish, blind. We know from his record what MT. Thompson has
done, but we have no record to show that Mr. Pfister has ever exerted himself
in tie city's behalf.
Proceeding further, we have Ricks, Lafaye and Newman as against Leahy,
McShane and Schumert. Compare them as you will, by any standards, and
the League candidates suffer in the comparison. 'Tis the difference between
workers and drones. Ricks, Lafaye and Newman are known for what they
have done in behalf of their city-morally, socially, and commercially. Each
has made a success of his affairs, and in so doing helped to push the city along
in the march of progress. In promoting their own afstairs they have always
found time for civic duty. Leahy, McShane and Schumert are worthy gentle
men, and each in his way has been somewhat successful. But what has any
of them shown that would justify as in believing that they would successfully
manage the ataire of a big city. This commissionership affair Is not a joke,
but a big serious business proposition. In New Orleans it is an experiment;
It is on trial, and in order to bring forth the best results and make the ex
periment a lasting fact, it will be necessary to have men of tried and known
experience at the helm. Such men are offered you by the Regular Democracy
each and every one of them capable of handling any department of our city
government successfully. The League has proffered you the best it could get
-they tried to do better but failed. It was an eleventh hour selection; they
had to present samne kind of a ticket to maintain their dignity. Tllb gh their
press can't may so, they are disappointed in the ticket; the League itself yt
disappointed, and the rank and file-well, you will see what they think oil
October L Por the sane, thinking voter there is only one course open-VOTE
the TICKET the Relalar Democracy has endorsed.
WRHRE IB BURNS?
Friday evening of last week, the Item resurrected "'herlocko" Burns, and
told again of dire disaster in store for the men on whose trail be has been
camping. The whole etsair has a pecallar odor of fake about it. The Item
acknowlsdgos that Burs hisesi has never been here to eonduct any investi
gation, but tht the whole busines has bean left in the hands of Dan ~bhon
and the ausslstant slethL Dan lDAbon has all the evidence in shape to put
betere hs elf--ote that. The grand jury of Orleans parish met on Priday:
St. ,aisr Aams is district attorney for this prish. If Mr. ILbon has any evi
dece of graft in his peLss- s it was the duaty of the distrtot attornerto sum
mon him bheoo the grand jary and make hbe divalge it. Detective Barns is
net the eeser of crimnal evidence ~a rlen parish. The district attorsey
is the man to ele such mattes. Yet, the grand jury adjourned withort
hearig a shred of evidean a stter that has been aonled forth in te
Itbm and s TlsmDmecrat lbr me th n a sath.
Now, there is a wel dand rumor ameng the loborng elasse that D
