The straightout Democratic dele
gate., frmn the several parishes will
assemble at Monroe to hold the
regular biannual Convention of the
Fifth district to nominate a candi
date for Congress.
The above date has acquired more
than: ordinary importance to the
Democrncy of the district for several
reasons. First, because a small
minority of the Executive Convention
t!nt fixed Tuesday, October the
11th, bolted the gathering because
they could not have their own way
alout the apportionment of delegates
from the several parishes; and in the
second place, they anticipated Octo
her the Ilth by holding a diminutive
convention of their own on Thbrsday,
September the 15th, and at their
meeting nominated Judge A. A. Gun
by, thereby attempting to antici
pate the action of the regular con
vention, and boldly, and confidently,
as they in their overgrown confidence
believed, foreshadowing the final
action of the State Central Corm
mnittee, which had adjourned a day
or two previous to meet on Tuesday,
September £0th in New Orleans,
which meeting the leaders of this dis
rupting band promptly attended to
cxFerience direct defeat. The Com
mittee by a very close vote deciding
that they would not interfere in the
affairs of the district, believing that
its Democracy were fully competent
to take, proper care of its own politi
cal business, which was a wise, sound
and clear common sense conclusion.
Of course, all this leaves the group of
disgruntled aspirants led by Judge,
Guatby with' their non nation and
other convention doings between
the horns of a- pitiful dilemma, and
btrings the Democratic Nominating
Convention to be held at, Monroe
next Tuesday week prominently and
authoritatively to the front, beyond
the reach of any doubt or caviling
that may be indulged in by those
who have been disappointed in what
has legitimately recently transpired
within the party lines.
t is a lamentable fact that politi
<cal impracticables are.steadily on th
increase in every district, pspecially
in Lolisiana. OfBlcq seeking mono-1
mnaniacs, who are impelled, con
frotld and harried forward by the
one idea of 'securing place, promin-1
ence and power, regardless of all
consequences, and soon becoming
political juggernauts, trampling I
under foot mereilessly every person, I
party and thing that is found in any I
w~ay obstructing the wrogress of their 1
aspirations. Any careful observer
will finld quite a numlber of such
characters just now travelng too and I
fro in our State destroying the politi- <
cal equilibrium as far as possible for <
their own political ends.
let us hope that the day of their
destiny will soon be over, for they,
or a, majority of them, must cer
tainly fall a prey to their own palpa
ble folly before long. Personal or
politieal abase rarely secures con
verts to any party, therefoie we cor
dially invite those who have .gone c
astray to fall unto line between now1'
and October the 11th, so that the
Democracy convening on that dayjin ,
the oity of Monroe will show a solid e
Mundivided ftont to its enemies ofi
every kind, and secure us one of

The controlling influence of mon
ey is unfortunately much mixed up
in both the one and the other. The
almighty dollar is so generally. be
corning the idol of the day that its
- jeager worshipers can be readily
found bowing pliant knees to it in all
classes of society, and uufortuntutely
fit has become and is recognized, as
a potent factor in the control of the
suffrage, the once proud inheri
tance of the once free and independ
ent American citizen. Give me the
money, cries the unscrnlpulous lpar
tizan, and I will control thie election.
Unfortunately this condition of
things prevails most in the National
elections, in which the most vital
interests of the people of the several
States are interested. In these
elections millions of money are
talked of, and used, with so much
unconcern and indifference that the
practice has become regarded as a
matter of course necessity.
Witness the Presidential election
of 1888, and the example then given
by the wealthy protectionists, from
WVanamaker down. Money is the
power, with the stereotyped motto,

Under such ccrrupting circum

There is far more pitiful truth
than poetry in the foregoing, and we

in any Xmay the least 'overdrawn,
but we have an abiding faith in the

and their saving; power to redeem the
people from the degeneracy conse
quent upon the money corruption
that now prevails.
The persistent grasping tenden
cies of the Republican party now
in authority, which ~riminated in
the productions and passage of the
force bill by a Republican Congress
has, we fully believe, opened the
eyes of a large majority of the
intelligent citizens of the country to
the real intent of that corrupt and
unrighteous measure, and they clear
ly see that if it should become a law
it would wipe out entirely the free
exercise of suffrage and perpetuate
by right of power and authority the
present political party in possession
of the government, until the people
rose in their might to crush the
party out of existence by sheer
force, or perchance until the masses
were oppressed, humiliated and
cowed out of all semblance to free
