FOR CONGRESS. 5TH DIST.
Chas. J. Boatner,
It is due both to'Judge Gunby
and Hon. C. J. Boatner for us to
say that neither of them sought
the nomination for Congress.
Let Frank Morey, the Radical
candidate for Congress, be snowed
under so deep that he'll never
raise his red. head for Congress
again in this State.
The prohibition element in this
State is considerably weakened eon
account of tle unfortunate course
they are now pursuing in trying
to elect their electors over the reg
ualr Democratic ones.

Editor Pearce, in his last week's
Caligrapi, animadverted strongly
and freely on the actions of the
Monroe convention in nomina
tdg C. J. Boatner to represent
tils District in Congress.
:We can see no reason nor con
ceive any excuse for his intemper
ate philipipics against Capt. Boat
ner, unless it is the object of the
hitherto Simon Ipure Democrat to
lead a'bolt in the 5th District.
Indeed his writings strongly in
dicate that it is doubtful whether
he will support the nominee or
His ostensible grounds of oh.
jection are that Boatner has lost
his domicile in this District, and
that he was nominated by the
Ouachita Ring; but we think his
objections and criticisms emanate
mainly from the fact that his fa
vorite was defeated. If we are
not mistaken as to the facts, there
was no man in this District who
for eight years sung the praise of
J. Floyd King louder for congress,
while he was a citizen of Mississ
ippi, than Brother Pearce. Then
if King could represent us while a
resident of Mississippi, pray wh3
cannot Boatner represent us, al
though his domicile be in an ad
joining District, especially since
the law does not require him to re
side in his District?
The old chestnut "That it
makes a great deal of difference as
to whose ox is gored," is applica
ble in thiscase to friend Pearce.
Again, as to Boatner being a
candidate of the Onachita Ring:
Every citizen of Louisiana who is
posted Jn regard to the politics of
the 5th District knows full well
that if a man was ever nominated
through the influence of a Ring,
it was Newton two years ago, and
by this same Ring which Pearce
now claims defeated him this time.
It is a stgniflcant fact that the
Ring was for Newton before, that
it was for him this time, Ind only
went to Boatner, without his
knowledge and consent, when there
was no longer any chance for New
ton. Then it was New ton's
friends who nominated Boatner.
In supporting Mr. Newton, accord
ing to friend Pearce's theory, he
supported. a Ring candidate; in
supporting J. Floyd King he sup
ported a candidate that not only
lived out of the District, but one
who lived out of the Statfe. Then
why all these lamentations over
the nomination of Boatner, broth
er Pearce? We fail to see your
Now then, we too, supported
Newton in this last campaign, and
believe he should have been nomi
nated; but after the convention
saw Ithe had no chance they did
wise ina nominating Boatoer. We
do not belong to any Ring, nor do
we favor the policy sometimes
adopted by them, but we will not
rfall out with, and refuse to sup
port a good man because he has
been nominated by a Ring.
From reading the Caligrapl we
have been led to believe that it
was in favor of a tariff for revenue
only, and opposed to a protective
tariff, also the Blair Bill, yet it ap
plauded Mr. Halstead In voting
for a man whoseviews are diamet
