X Two McIu1bers3 of Ite iptialiecnn U'trisl Coamntlittee With draw front that Party. v e There appears to be some de fection from local Republican a ranks. Some days ago Dr. H. D. s Guidry, a member of the Repub lican Parish Executive Commit f tee, announced his abandonment of that party and in Wednes day's Times-Democrat Mr. C. Doucet, a member and vice-pres Sident of the same committee, states that he has also decided to quit the g. o. p. Mr. Doucet has published the following address defining his position: Lafayette, La., Aug. 10, 1903.: "To the ItRepublican Electorate of Lafayette Parish: "'Gentlemnen-As your vice president, It feel it incumbent on me to indorse the statement of the political status of the Republican party in Louisiana recently issued by Dr. Guidry, executive committeeman of the First ward of this parish. I desire to emphasize particularly, and to indorse, the allusion to 'reciprocity with Cuba, which will have the effect of destroyingt the sugar industry of the State; and the policy of imperialism and expansion, which will have the effect of bringing these trop ical islands in disastrous com petition with the chief products of our own State; and for the further reason, upon which the ' doctor did not dwell, the favorit ism which has made it possibleI for an obscure army surgeon to 1 rise rapidly, until to-day he stands within measurable dis- ` tance of the commandership of the United States Army, over the heads of twoscore of veter ans who have grown gray in the I service of their country; in view of the travesty of justice which t sought to discredit the hero of Santiago, Winfield Scott Schley, and gave the emolements, as it sought to give the honor, to at nonparticipant in the decisive battle of the Spanish war, sim-1 ply because he was a pet of the t Crowninshed clique, uphold by, Roosevelt. t 'And now comes the postoffice t scandal, the rottenness of which is a stench in the nostrils of all decent citizens, regardless of ( their political affliation; the i whole caplped by the negro- i philism of the President, and his efforts to force social equality, as part and parcel of good Re-m publicanism, makes it an utter a impossibility for any decent, I self-respecting Southern Repub- a lican to longer affiliate with the Republican party, and shows the ' necessity of changing the na- V tional administration, as too long E a lease of power has evidently I made honesty in Republican 1 politics an impossibility. "For these reasons, I join my ,c esteemed friend, Dr. Guidry, in advising the Republican voters to affiliate loyally with the Demo crats, national and state, and to e stand by the nominees of the h next primary. ii C.

'I'It.I1N 31:N Of a Freiglat Crew Chaurged with Kh3atinig as Mtexiten. Last Tuesday morning a Mex ican named Gustave Martini, who was trying to steal a ride on a west-bound freight train, was shot and seriously wounded near Segura. The case was re ported to the authorities at New Iberia by whom an investigation of the shooting is being made. Conductor Foster and the three brakemen, who were on the train, have been arrested in con nection with the shooting. but we are informed that the wounded man has failed to iden tify any one of the men as the persson who did the shooting.; Owing to the condition of Mar tini, who is at the Charity Hos pital in New Orleans, the train men had not secured bail up to IThursday evening. The friends of the men are confident that SI they are innocent of the crime e charged against them. t Ir-'ons His Hume Piapler. In referring to the candidacy of Hon. LeDoux E. Smith, his home paper the Town Talk, says: "He has proven himself such i a painstaking State officer, so '] courteous in his manner, so o accommodating to the public t in general, that there is not a j public man in the State more ii pIopular with the people than a Hon. LeDoux E. Smith, and a hosts of friends in every section C of Louisiana will come forward tl and give him their earnest sup- o ,'port for the position of Auditor. C "He has ever been a stalwart C Democrat. Never has he failed p to do his party a service when C possible. There is not a truer, more uncompromising Democrat in Louisiana than LeDoux E. ti Smith. tl "If elected State Auditor he:g will till the position in the most able manner, and the interests f of the State will be as carefully di guarded by lhi n as by any al citizen who could be found if b( every parish in Louiisana was ti sifted. t sý "Here in his native parish no gi one stands higner as a mian of honor, as a true Democrat, as an upright, good citizen, than LeDoux E. Smith, and if his friends throughout Lonisiana tI' elect him Auditor his home in people of Rapides will be of delighted to know that his tli merits are riecognized by the th democrats of other portions of di the State.
