vided the candidate is equally as well
qualified as ally other, and such I
know Hon. John M.I Parker to be. I
believe this distribution of the honcrs
is conducive to party harmony and
good feeling between the sections.
Second.-Mr. Parker has resumed his
'niilation with the Democratic party
and if he becomes a candidate for gov
Iernor le will be running in the Demo
cratic primary, .to become its nomlne,
and standard bea~er. I believe that it
is in. the primary that Democrats
should exercise their independence and
vote for the candidate they thlunk best
qualified to serve the public welfare.
I would oppose Mr. Parker or ainy
other candidate as the nominee of an
other pjrty, as vigorously now 'as I
e did in 191if but being a Democrat, run
Sning . in the bemocratic primary, is
n quite a different propoosition. Not only
that, but it does not lie in the mouth
a of the New Orleans political organisa
fl on to oppose Mr. Parker on the
I ground of irregularity, for the reason
that in the senatorial .campaign .last

would also cahl atten:ttionl.to the further bene:
fact that lion. Horace Wilkinson, for- oilec
Hmer chairnt uil of the Democratle State-A
Central Committee. is supporlingl Mr. -
Parker's candidaicy. Also, Mr. Parker .
has many letters from President Wil
son and other Democrats of national l
'eputailu, vconn:icdin1g him ald his
work for the party.
Third--Mr. Parker rendered signal
service to the )cemocratle party in 1916 We
and materially assisted in the re-el.e
tion of President Wilson as chief exce- as
utive of this nation for the present il
term. lie has at national reputatio l tio
.throughout this great country and his on
efforts aided much in the success of
the D)enmocrat!c party i the presdent- The
ial election in November, 1916. 11011
Fourth-Mr. Parker has rendered
magnificent service to bot-h the state as
and nation In the recent war, having vilh
accepted the appointment voluntarily the
tendered him as pub'olic food achituistra- hel
tor of tile state of Louisiana. He has .
lceglected his'owni business and devot- FO
ed his entire time to the duties of this
important fwiction, all of which was
done "without fee or the hope of re- I
ward." He has again been called up- me]
on by federal authlorities and hais ac- sur
cepted the important responsibility of did
trying to (che'k profiteering and thereby Thi
reducing the high cost of living. pal
Fifth- M2. Parker is a splendid type He
of a business man who has mn:ile a sue- a r
cess of his own affairs. and the state his
needIs just such a governllor t this lpar- do
tieular time. during the recaustructio!
peridl fllhwing the war. I believe hlie I
will bring to the management of that ti
important etiice thei same executive Wt
ability, intate honesty and devotion to Lil
duty that has so characterized hir in dri
the past. e
Sixth.-Mr. Parker is a plantler and (,St
largely interested in agriculitural pur- ii'
suits, as well as the raising of live fo
stock. lie will materially aid in the ea. nu
tablishment of a great agricultural ti'
school for our state anid will encourage nl)
the farming industry, which Is so much w
needed at this particular tim"ne. Mr.
Parker has always helped hi all great
business enterlpr'ises, whether local. t
state or national, and has nevel failed cl
to serve In any great tpublic function P
for which his splendid abilities par
ticularly designated hhim as the proper
person to assume the same.
Seventh.-Mr. Parker is a splendidl
type of citizen, well worthy of serving;
this great state as chief executive. He
is of a hih1 moral character. strong
p.ersonality, integrity unquestioned,
ability unsurpassel a11d his nominatio.
will reflect creilit on the Demoerath
party that makes him its standard
w wish to state further that I have
_ no quarrel'with the Yew Orleans po
litlcal orgaiilltion or any (,aindidate
acts for governor, and I vount them all my
and prsonal friends, but I believe that Mr
Parker will nilke t aest governor for
Louisiana ait this particular tiae. If
arty he enters the race lie will be elected
. eov- overwhelmlingly. I have made but
amo- few mistakes in (iagnosing political
tit [conditions in 0Loutiiata lti the past
. i twenty years, rand I gin now willing to
ats predict that if Mr. Parker beeomes a
a nt candidate for governor he will be elect
"re ed by a majority of at least '20,000 to
r 25,00 votes, 5(nd 1if the New Orleans
f political organiation opposes him they
i will have the fight of their' lives te
uhold the city in line.
u, is I have known MIF. Parker 'for sev
only eral years and was quite itltmately
,outh naociated with him in the politica'
misa- campaign of 1912, so that I know hik
the worth and qualiflcatios for the high
n oflfie of chief executive of this state.
eIaso I am sure if he becomes a candldiatt
last i will bev wititout any promises\ or
tical- pledges to anyonii whatsoever, and that
)rt to he will go into office untrammelled

ofiice for which he is so well qualified.
