Gov. Foster has appointed W. S.
Frazier to the office of Sheriff of St. grea
Landry parish, caused by the death of 1
of H. I. Deshotels. The first good les
act of Mr. Frazier, was to clean out the
the whole office force of pops. and mal
put in-straight Democrats. oth
The same old factional fight is on of
*in Caddo parish, and each wing of oth
the Democratic party have put up cxc
candidates for the Constitutional
Convention. This is to be regretted, di.
and they should have buried their
difference and sacrificed everything bee
to the success of the party.
It is gratifying to the Dernc'a~ey
of the State to see that there will be inc
harmony among the two factions of aci
the party in East Baton Rouge in eff

that all differences have been fixed tal
so that they will be united. the
The Republicans of Louisiana, who th;
have been in Washington for the past de
six or eight mouths waiting for their le:
reward from Marcus Alonzo McKin- en

made until after Congress meets. pc
Wimberly's hopes have been crushed in
more than once. at
Politics are warming up all over e'
the State and in the next week it will "
be red-hot. It is sincerely hoped it
that the Democrats will not allow any Ct
old sores to be opened and that they
will unite in defeating every Repub- bi
lican-Populist wherever he may come w
out. The Convention should be at
composed entirely of Democrats.
