REWARDS OF THE BOSSES.
The Batot ge Truthin in -
menting ui s e, rialoe h
above aqtp whic pp ffe4 the
Times.bemerat list ek, very a
justly says: :
,"We are not a mouthpiece for .
Gov. Heard, nor are we called upon a
to Tfand his acts, except is a dem- d
ocratic 'journal, nor does his acts re- -
quire a defender, but we cannot help
arising to inquire that if political d
bosses and their followers are not en- a
titled to rewards, who in the name of d
common sense is? Surely, not the
men of four years ago who followed
and came near turning the State a
over to Pharr and his republican a
a horde, nor the late Jacksonian pat
s riots, who, had they been suecessful d
Y in the prelimary skirmish, would
e most undoubtedly have strengthened d
s the campaign of Caffery, but who a
d after defeat crawled into their holes 4
v only to come forth to claim a share d
. of ollfficial patronage secured by the
fidelity and exertions of true and d
tried democrats-democrats who are d
democrats under any and all circum- d
r. stances? Surely the Times-Dew- d
I ocrat would not expect Gov. Heard
to overlook the staunchest members
ie of his party and give political recog- 1
11 nition to men who jump to the oppo- d
sition every time an opposition ap
Spears in the least strength, or to
those who only vote under the most
favor3bhle circumstances. Governor
KHeard is a democrat, and as such in
making appointments should, and
we presume will, consider the claims
- of democrats only, and from these he
"t will no doubt recognizt not only
il qualitication and integrity, but po
I litical strength and popularity.
Ai "Should he incline to accept the
be suggestions of the Times-I)emocrat
o and fail to recognize the claims of
º the "bosses" and their followers the
!Il life of the party will be short, an end
g' that would perhaps give great pleas
it ure to some of his critics.
ira "The individual who polls the
to largest vote for his party is a "boss,"
and if recognized as such by a ma
lia jority of fellow partizans, he should
he receive recognition from and be con
)er suited by those who have party pa
of tronage to dispense.
, "With a majority of 6000 as the re
ug suit of one of the fiercest municipal
, elections on record, none will be
on hold enough to maintain that .the city
ble appointees are not leaders in the city
of New Orleans, nor will people be
º) easily convinced that these leaders
'ell should be ignored to please those
i whose democracy is of the weakest
kirt kind, if they are democrats at all."

TO THE VOTERS OF THE THIRD
KI R. COMMISSION DISTRICT.
In announcing myself a candidate
for re-election as Railroad Commis
sioner, I do so, subject to nomination
by the Democratic party.
In presenting my claims for re-elect
ion permit me to say that I am a plant
er, raising cotton and hay for ebip
ment to market, consequently I am by
nature, by training and by financial
interest, in thorough sympathy with
the producer and consumer-the one
who, in the end, pays all 'the freight
and other expenses-and who needs
protection more than any one else, and
to whom the Railroad Commission
can be made the most important office
in the Basate.
During the year and a half that I
have held the office, it has been my
aim (and it shall be my aim as long as
I hold it) to guard closely the inter
ests: (1) of the farmors and produ
cers; (2) of the towns in my district;
(3) to deal out even-handed justice to
I the carriers that come within our
This, 1 feel that I have done faith

I be valuable to me in the fuller and
f more efficient discharge of its duties
a in the future.

two years, I believe that you will

A Chicago physician with a staticical
turn of mind has been estimating the
proper distance covered by a woman in
dancing through the ordinary ball
room program. An average waltz the
.doctor estimates, takes over three
quarters of a mile. A square dance
makes you cover half a mile; the same
distance is covered in a polka, while a
rapid galop will just oblige you to
traverse about a mile. Say there are
twelve waltzes. which is a fair average
-these alone make nine miles. Three
galops added to this, makes the dis
tance twelve miles, while from three
to five other dances at a half mile
eacir, bringing up the total to from
thirteen to fifteen miles-this too. is
without reckoning the promonade and
the extras. ."As a means of exercise."
says the physician, "it will thus be
seen that dancing stands at the head
of the list."-Ex.
