FORL'PRESIDENT: Grover Cleveland, OF NEW YORK. FOR VICE.PRESIDENT: Allen G. Thurman OF lOHIO FOR CONGRESS. 5TH DIST. Chas. J. Boatner, OF OUACIIITA. 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. o far as hard from Pearce, of the Ctskgrpk, is the most unreas onable sad ineonsistent man in the district regarding'the action of the late Congressional conven ties. Clatierne desired Newton return. ed to eongress, still the people are pleased with the course of Mr. Simmons In casting the vote of this parish for Boatner after Newton's name was withdrawn. The people of Claiboene desire representation in congress by a man whose views on the tariffques tioa are In keeping with theirs. Boatner says down with the pro tective tariff. The anotorious negsro politician, Pinaebback, has beeo nominated obr Congres by the Republicans afroma the First Distrilt, and I. Dudley Coleman, the well known manaketerer and extreme pro tesotlonst in the Second. May thir hobances for defqrt never grow lest Let every citizen of Claisrnre r~me out to the polls on the 6t.h. and vote forClevdland, Tbhrmond and Bostner. It is the bounden duty of every Democrat to support the nominee of the patty. It is very importmat that Claiborne poll a large vote, as our represen ttalon tI future conventions may be based thevrote.of this elec. tion The Indiana Republicans are bQeginlng to feel sorry that Blaine ever made am y .speehes in that State. He has been talknlag out of in and besides has made se-m eras broad misreprsetatsionsou wbh werme so promptly refted lryto Rarriona.

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 not. 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 consistency. 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 rically opposed to the views of a majority of the people of this Dis. tnrot who favor a radical reduction ofthe tariff. The main issue now between the two parties is thetar 1i; a great prinaiple i, involved in thus campaign, and Cliborne par ish, if nots majority of the par. iehes in .this District, would preo. feor a man with sound views on these great questions, even though he is a eitizen.of another District, to one who lived in it and favored A protective tariff. We beleve Mr. Boatner's views on the tariff question are thoroughly in aoeord Withthe tariff reformers of this Distriet.

A Nlat y mmlmigrants. -~ ~ • " -Tbe Natteh tch .aEnterprise calls attention to a fact that should be not:ei)in advertising the many reasons why immigrants should select Louisiana among the Southern States for their home that our present very efficient, sen sible and scientiflo quarantine methods have kept the yellow fe ver out of the State this year al though it has been within seventy five miles of our border, and will always keep it out in future. We do not imagine that the Florida epidemic, which has kill ed fewer people than die one day in New York, and fewer than are catried off every month in West ern States by diseases like the ty phoid and scarlet fevers, will af feet in the slightest degree immi gration to the bouth this winter, but, at the same time, the very thorough quarantine we have in force here, the efficiency of our Board of Health, the absence of any panic, the failure of any scare to interrupt business or stop trains, all are excellent arguments to be brought forward in faver of immigration to this State. The past summer has given La. an ad ditional argument to offer why Im migrants should make their homes here.-Times Democrat. The Jackson Patriot makes the following sensible remarks in zef erence to our nominee for con gress: A letter received yesterday in forms us that Mr. Boatner cannot leave Monroe to eater the canvass on accountof legal business. Mr. Boatner in accepting the nomina. tion declared that Mr. Newton ought to have the place and that be only accepted to harmonzie the party. Appearances are strongly against the idea that Mr. Boatner was a party to the defeat of New ton. Mr. B's. private statement to us before the nomination is decid edly averse to this notion. We hope that everything will soon cool down and that the part's. nominee will be cheerfully accept ed throughout the Dist. He is a man of ine ability and certainly there is no truer man in the South. May not the question well be presented whether a very consid erable part of the invalidism of the women in the better ranks of soci ety to-day be not due to a failure to be properly employed? ' More particularly the young women in Swell-to-do families who, after their school days are over, praeti cally fold their hands and become as idle and useless as painted ships on painted oceans. If they used the broom and feather dusters more in the devel opement of their muscles, and stimulated the sweat glands by duties in close proximity to the cooking stove, they would have fewer eases of chlorosis, neuras thenia spinal irritation, ovarian and uterine disturbances, inactive liver, eatarrhal stomach and over-filled colon, and be more on the order of the girls of primitive times who were a Joy to themselves and the homes in which they lived. If the families of the well-to-do, discharged their servants and put their daughters to work, Christian slence, infanitessimal, and other frauds and fads would cease to be. --The Medical World.

Ledbetter of Artona, was buried in Lisbon Cemetec', Thursday eve last. He was ire turning from Ruston where he had been to market, was taken sudden. ly ill and died at the residence of a Mr. Madden near Hlyco, of con gestion of the lungs. Mr. Ledbet ter came to this neighborhood las t Winter from Ark., and though he had been here less than a year at the time of his death, by his hon est dealings, industrious habits, gentlemanly bearings and chris tian examnple, he had won the con. flilence and esteem of his neigh - bors. He was a member of the Methodist Church, and well may it be said, a truly good man is gone. He leaves a familyand many friends to mourn that he is dead. Surely an unfair proportion of earths sorrows has fallen to the lot of this community in the last few days. The death of Capt. W. G. Coleman. the aged friend of us all, which occurred at his home near the D'Arbone last Friday night, has thrown about this en tirecommunity a mantle of gloom. Capt. Coleman was for many years a citzen of this neighbor hood, and though his death had been expectedl for some days, yet the announcement last Saturday morning that the sad event had actually occured fell as a pall upon solicitous and hopefiul 'friends. Though he had lived the best of life, we "hand him across" with sorrow. He lies interred is the Cemetery at Rocky Springs be. side loved ones gone before. The malignant type of fever known as slow fever, which has constituted the burden of sickness this summer and fall in this and adjacent communities is gradually giving way. Dawson & Boykin's store was burglarized again last Friday night, several articles, some of them of considerable value, are missed. "Some body's going to lose a nigger at this foolishness. We hear very, little hard, solid "Kicking" at the action of the Monroe Convention. The result was, indeed, a great surprise to us; but some surprises are pleasant; and, to us individually, 'this is of them." The Public School at this place begins next Monday Oct. 29th. The editorial in the GUARDIAN of last week on the action of the Prohibitionists in placing an electoral ticket in the field in this State, will meet the unqualified endorsement of all Democrats. There is an interesting ease peading in the Surpreme court at Shreveport this week, appealed from Desota parish, ih olving the question as to whether or not po Slice juries can be compelled by the school boards to levy a tax for the aid of public schools. A recent act of the legislature confers on the police jurl'ies the right to levy a tax for this purpose, which shall not be less than one and a half miles. It is contended that it is only permissive and discretionary with the police juries and that they cannot b~ forced to do a thing which is merely discretionary and not mandatory. We are of the opinion thatit is purely discretion ary with the police juriesas it has been ever since 1877, however' the Supreme court is to decide that question. Col. Gee. Moorman has been nominated by the President to be United States Marshilli for the Eastern District of Lonisiana. NOTICE.
