MEETING Last Thursday night recorded the largest and mostt enthusiastic po- 1' litical meeting ever held in Algiers by an opposition party. Old timersI say that it was even larger than the big meeting held during the "Citizens League" campaign, when Mayor Flower was elect' d to office. An old timer at the meeting Thursday night, after viewing the crowd, and taking note of expressions of differ'-nt people. said, with a sigh. "well. coming events cast their shadows before them"; and so it is, the shadow of defeat of the old ring is growing darker. Sept. 14th will set the eclipse com pleted. The boys' tin-pan parade. gotten up for the purpose ai disturbing the meeting, the large streamer. which was hung almost directly over the speakers stand and other disagreeable incidents were just a rew tactics so well known as tricks of the "regulars." The better class of pedrple do not approve of these methods and they frequently prove a boomerang ~ which is usually cosly in votes. The best indication of the success of the meeting was the great enthus- u iasm of the O. D. A. and the keen and bitter dlisappoinment of the regulars who were allowed to go to the meeting. The convincing arguments of the speakers made many votes for the " O. D. A., and had more regulars attended this meeting there woult have been some very notable converts to a party, which is opposed to sixteen years of a one-man rule. Another old timer expressed himself regarding the big crowd at this meeting as follows: "Well, well. this crowd certainly shows that many of the Algierines are getting independent. A few months ago they would have thought twice before attending in public a meeting of any organiza tion opposed to the present administration." Time'sare changing. men and women, out of politics, will in the future hold the balance of power. the new election law. political freedom and public sentmnf nt as expressed at this O. D. A. meeting will mean better. cleaner, and more efficient administrations in the future. Sixteen years of a one man rule is enough. n but our regular friends do not believe in the precedent set by the father of our country. JOHN M. KEEP OFF. This question is often put forth by ring Democrats; what has Gov- W ernor John M. Parker got to do with smashing the ring. Why does he t not look after the State's business and let the city take 'are of its own ii affairs? By their objection to Gyov. Parker's activity, they acknowledge the great moral support of this just man, of a cause that Is sure to win. They know that Jdhn M. Parker would not lend his name to a movement that is not good for the public's welfare. Let's see just why Gov. Parker has the nerve' to help smash the old ring. Is he not a citizen of New Orleans and Louisiana? Has he not the privilege to exercise his right of a citizen just the same as others? Oovernor Parker promised the people of New Orleans during his cam paign that if elected, he would use his ibest efforts to destroy ring politics t in the city of New Orleans. His efforts now are in the direction of keep ing this promise. The city of New Orleans is a very big part of the i state and Gov. Parker is Ireatly applauded for the interest he is taking in this big portion of Louisiana. Big men do not flinch from peanut criti cism. John M. Parker's support of the Orleans D~mocratic Association is an asset that the ring would certainly enjoy. FLAUNTING THE LAW When the mayor of a New Jersey City openly defied the law and the mandate of a court of chancery and permitted a ball game on Sunday. he struck a harder blow at Americanism than any that have been struck by so-called "reds." If officers, sworn to enforce the law, openly flaunt it. repudiate their oath of office and defy the courts, what can ,be expected of ignorant foreigners who have come to our shores seeking a supposed freedom? Whatever may be our opmion of Sunday baseball does not enter 1 Into the question. It is merely a question of whether the law is supreme or whether an official can refuse to obey a law of which he does not ] personally approve. That is a question that confronts the American I people at this time in regard to various laws. and it must be faced and I settled. There can be no escape. We must be a law abiding people or we will surely go down before the onsweep of bolshevism. We cannot enforce some laws and ignore others. That official, be he mayor, gover nor or piresldent who will evade his sworn duty to enforce the laws of the laws and to uphold the constitution, is unworthy of any position of trust or even of citizenship. We can never Americanize our immigrants it we permit laws to be violated at will. THIS BIG SAVING Belongs to you. If we move these goods to our new location -1107 Canal-we pay the cost.

GRAND ISLE THREW THE BULL The passengers or Sunday night's inomning Grand Isl? train had quite a disagreeable experience by the de railment of one of the coaches, caused by a peculiar accident. When the train reached the thick woods just outside of Gretna. a little bit late. the engine suddenly ran upon a young bull. which emerged from K th- heavy thicket of weeds and un derbrush upon the tracks of the? company, less than thirty feet in Lront of the engine. The engine passed completely over the animal. lifting th, wheels off the tracks. but in some unaccountable manner, it did not derail the engine. The trucks, however, of the first day coach was derailed which caused a_ delay of some three h'ours. The, train arrived in Algiers about mid night. Luckily for the passengers our good friends, the mosquitoes, must have been taking a day off or attending a picnic as they were very conspicious by their absence. * No fault could be placed upon the en-i gineer for the accident, and the train crew did everything In their power for the comfort of the paas sengers. After it was seen that with the equipment on hand, the coach could not be replaced on the track, the engine made a hurried run to Algiers for necessary tools. Monster Raly of 0. D. A. Was Big Surprise To The Ring (Continued from Page 1) phrey and Dr. Kraft were in Baton Rouge appearing before the committee in behalf of the bill Jimmie Henri quez, attorney for the Southern Im provement and Ferry Company, and incidentally chairman of the boss-con trolled New Orleans Parish Democratic Committee, and close associate and ad visor of Martin, the Magnificent not only spoke against it in committee but lobbied against it as well. "When the bill came up for final passage in the House on July 5th, O'Donnell who had promised to see it through, O'Donnell who has had the effrontery to assail the record of John M. Parker, O'Donnell who has claimed to be the representative of labor, the class which would have beef most benefited by the passage of this ferry bill, O'Donnell was not there. And the bill was handled as reported by substitutes, by Representative Hig gins, of Jelerson, who realized that naless it passed that day, it would never get through the senate I ntime. "This legislation afecting the may or's bailiwick as it did, you would image that the city ring delegation of seventeen would be solid behind it. But what does the House Journal show? Sixty votes were need and the bill got fftyight. "Basrman and his representativa O'Denaell, broke fattb with the people of r11Jm " KITTIEIt;DGE TELLS 'EM. "Is this a rebellion?" Try G. Kitt redge asked amid laughter. Pointing to a picture of Martin Behrman around which vari-colored electric lights were strung he sent the crowds into roars of laughter when he exclaimed: "Alas. poor Martin. I knew him well' He looks natural, all right, but it's a different look he'll wear on Sep tember 15. Right here in his own bailiwick I tell Martin Behrman that that fighting little Irishman sitting just back of me is going to take his hide." Referring to the banner that the Ring had strung up in front of the speakers' stand. Mr. Kittredge force fully exclaimed: "Behrman is not playing fair in putting that banner there. He is a cheap welcher; he is afraid of the game. Does he think he can intimidate this throng, even though it is in Algiers? Time after time at O. D. A. meetings we have been met with hoodlumism, Behrman. you and your man Mooney know that these incidents are not accidental! Further, you know that we won't stand for them!" "RECORD OF RECORI)." Mr. Kittredge then read from "Mar tin Behrman's record of Martin Behr man's record." He showed the falli cies of the printed arguments the mayor has sent broadcast. The crowd showed their appreciation of Mr. Kitt redge's points when he read that Behrman was praising himself for increasing the police department from 347 in 1904 to 366 in 1920, and the fire department from 50 pieces in 1904 to 60 in 1920. He showed that building permits had not been active during the Behrman administration. J. A. FORTIER SPEAKS "Behrman is a traitor to his office, he has betrayed public trust; his is the language of a progressive and the actions of a reactionary." lie based this statement on the fact that Behrman himself had made a declaration to him (Fortier) that Behrman had made a business alli ance with big interests and that it would be impossible to dislodge Behr man because of this. CHARLES ROSEN NEXT. "They're holding a vindication meet ing tonight. God knows they need it. "Behrman is the biggest municipal Ihumbug in the whole United States! Now that the women have the vote.
