THE PRIMARY ELECTION NEXT ol
Elsewhere e pullish the proceed- ti
ings of the Parish Executive Coin
tmittee. which met last Montay to asp- l
point oininissioners and clerks, des- tu
ignate polling places, and provide e
the manner of conducting the elect-1
ion, counting the votes &c. a
the people are to vote for a nom- ai
inee for Congress, a nominee for the
Railroad Commission, and a nom
inee for the Congressional District
Committee for this parisb.
As to the nominee for Congress,
there is but one candidate before the
people, as far as we know, and that
one is Hon. Jos. E. Ransdell. Mr.
Itansadell has recently returned from
a tour through six or eight parishes
of the district, and his reports of the
eucqurageinent and support given
,'gaa by the voters of these parishes
are very flattering. The fact that ihe
has no opposition is proof positive of
,his.general endorsement by the peo- i
ple. Nothing else need be said; and
next Tuesday all throughout the dis
triet a large vote will be polled for
our honored fellow citizen, Jos. E.
Another matter to which we ,call
the attention of the vofers, is the
voting for Railroad Commissioner.
Mr. W. L. Foster, of Shreveport, is
a candidate for re-election; and't
Javing no opposition, will receive
the solid vote of the district.
We urge the people to come out
and vote next Tuesday. It looks
much better, and reflects much more
credit upon the parish, for the voters
to come to the polls. A light vote
indlicates sluggishness and unconcern
on the part of the people; a full vote
domonsltrates to the outside world
that we take an interest in our elict
ions. So we hope to see a good vote
polled next Tuesday.

which changes the suffrage qualifica- wilt

Louisiana plan, disfranchises about bay,
80 or 10 per cent of the negro vote afar
of the state. The tight throughout whi
the state was conducted almost en- that
tirely on this issue, for the Demo- iic
crats were determined to get control t" e

One of the features of the election haw
was the fact that lquite a number of Ilat
the intelligent classes of the negroes gen
voted for the amendment, prominent inuo
among them being the faculty of erit

worthy of notice is, that there are a iod

who realize that his presence as a tra

We congratulate the people of il
