ARE THEY SINCERE . 0
The action of the Louisiana su- t
gar Republicans in refusing to affil- 8
late or deal with the old Republi- n
can party, and totally repudiating s
the "cullud brudders," will in our t
opinion serve a very good purpose
in redeeming them in the eyes of
the people. If they are sincere in ,
their announced intention to form 0
a "lily white" Republican party,
it will at least lend respectability
to an organization of men whose
greed for money was so great as
to cause them to sacrifice principle
and country for it.
But the question arises, are they
sincere? Are not perhaps the phil- I
anthrophy and patriotism of these I
men mere catch words of partisan i
greed and hypocrisy? It is a well
known fact thV the Republican
party has practiced deception from
the very day that it was born, and i
it is not to be supposed that it is 1
quite ready to surrender its favor
ite methods. If the Republican
party can maintain its supremacy I
by force bills it will try force bills;
if some other policy will better ac
complish this partisan purpose,
that other policy goes. These are
the methods of the Republican
party, and to these it will adhere
as long as it is a party, and it is
because of this that we look with a
suspicious eye upon the action of
the sugar (or boodle) Republicans.
These men, who were once Dem
ocrats, know full well how repug
--ant the negro as a voter is in
their repudiation of him could
have been a mere bid for respecta
ble white votes, which could not
have been gotten by recanting the
fustain rot about the rights of the
negro, the stock in trade of the
Republican party. The sugar Re
publicans knew this, and deter
mined to cater to the passions of
the multitude, and pretend to re
pudiate the negro. But the people
of Louisiana paid dearly for ex
perience, and have learned that to
plunder and oppress the white peo
ple of the South and make the ne
gro undisputed master of this
iJouthern country is a commission
entrusted to the Republican party,
and will doubtless stop and medi
tate upon the ancient question:
"Can the Ethiopian change his
skin, or the leopard his spots ?"
before falling into the sugar plan
ters' trap. It is an easy matter to
plan this process of bleaching the
skin of the Ethiopian and washing
the spots of the leopard, but to
convince the people that the pro
cess is successful is another thing.
Republicanism in any shape, per
fumed even it be, is not wanted by
the white people. One dose has
proven "sufficiently enough."
But can the sugar-coated Repub
licans control the negro vote after
their pretended drawing of the
color line? Certainly. In the
first place the negro will vote the
Republican ticket under any and
all circumstances. It is the negro
party in the South, the only party
that has ever recognized them, the
party that countenanced and threw
the shield of protection around
them while they oppressed the peo
pie and robbed the public coiffers,
and it is as reasonable to think of
--.caalming a telppest by persuasion
Sastotry to "cuss" a nigger out of
the Republican party. And even
if they were not blindly wedded to
the Republican party, in the sugar
parishes they are worked and prac
tically owned by the planters, and
on the day of election will be
marched like so many sheep by
The negro is a purchasable piece
of merchandise, and money and
whiskey will smooth over any "in
sult" that might have been caused
We hope the sugar planters are
sincere in their declaration for
white supremacy, but "Can the
Ethiopian change his skin, or the
his spots ?"
*MAJORITY PR. IAR- Y.
ie parish Democratic executive
. nmittee of Avoyelles met at
3i [rksville on the 7th instant, and
ai. n iismously decided upon the ma
idaty vote plan. None but white
Democrats will be allowed to vote,
and in case a candidate does not
receive a majority of the votes cast,
a new primary election will be or
dered and the two candidates hav
ing received the highest vote run
again, all others dropping out.
Here is the resolution referring to
Be it further resolved, That in
case of a tie or of a candidate not
receiving a majority of the votes
cast at said primary election, the
president of this Executive Com
mittee shall have the right to or
der a new primary election between
the candidates who shall have re
ceived an equal number of votes or
will not have received a majority
of the Democratic votes cast in the
election, dropping out of the can
didates all but the two who shall
have received the highest number
of votes cast at said election, ex
cept in the case of Representatives,
they shall drop all but four of the
candidates for said office, which
second primary election shall bE
ordered to take place not mor(
than twenty days from the date oe
the first primary as above ordered
Said second election and returns tc
be made and held in the sam.
manner with the same commis
sioners as is above provided for is
the general primary election.
It is safe to say that nearly ever:
parish and district in the Statb
will select their officers by mean
of white Democratic primaries.
WHY IS IT 1'
We submit the following article
from the Alexandria Town Talk
of last week without comment:
The Red River cotton seed oil
mill, located at this point, has
been, and is now, of incalculable
benefit to the planters of this par
ish, and especially to those residing
within hauling distance of the
mill. It is an independent mill,
and has a hard time of it com
peting with the trust, which is up
to all kinds of tricks to fool the
people. The mill is doing this:-it
is paying $2 per ton more for seed
to those planters residing within
hauling distance. In other words,
the mill gives those who deliver
seed the amount that would have
to be paid to the railroads for
freight. This being true, it is to
the interest of the planters to keep
the mill in the hands of home peo
pie. If it should be sold to the
trust, the farmers residing near
Alexandria and hauling to the
mill, would get no more for their
seed than if it was delivered in
New Orleans, and the planters
paid the freight to that point.
There is a mill at Opelousas, said
to be independent, and the farmers
who deliver seed to that mill, we
are informed, only get $ per
agents buying seed there. If the
Red River Oil Mill is not beneficial
to the planters of this neighbor
hood we would like very much to
know why the Opelousas mill and
New Orleans buyers are not pay
ing $7 per ton for seed delivered by
wagon at Opelousas instead of $6.
This is good proof that the Red
River mill's existence here is
bringing the planters $2 per ton
more for their seed than they
would otherwise get if it was not
in existence and did not belong to
home people. The Town Talk be
lieves in patronizing home institu
tions, and especially one that is
putting money in the pockets of
the people. We will have more to
say in this line from time to time.
THA T MANDAMUS.
The Courier in its notice of man
damus suit to compel Registrar
Swords to register some colored
voters of the Bellevue precinct as
voters of the Opelousas precinct,
does not fully state the point at
issue. The attorneys of the Re
gistrar contend, we are informed,
that the question of the creation of
the Bellevue justice of the peace
ward by the police jury has nothing
to do with the right claimed by
the plaintiffs in that mandamus
proceeding to be registered as
voters of the Opelousas precinct,
because the jury had the right to
devide the police jury ward into
precincts under the late act of the
legislature, and under that law
every voter must register and vote
in his own precinct. The act of
the police jury in creating a new
justice of the peace ward may not
be legal, but that does not in ans
manner effect the police jury or
dinance dividing the ward Into
As to the suggestion that the
jury deferred the redistricting of
the wards into precincts beyond
the period fixed by the act of the
legislature, it is not true in point
of fact; and if it was true it would
not matter as that feature of the
election law is directory.

PrCess Opiniofnl Ti
Lake Charles Commercial: All
of our merchants report trade as
improving, and it is generally be
lieved that this is the beginning
of better times. But a very small
proportion of the rice crop has yet
been sold, and when this begins to I
come to market at a fairly remu
nerative price, money will circu
late much more freely.
Church Point Advocate: Al
though differences of opinion exist
among democrats on the financial
question, this should not be a cause
of estrangement, but all should
unite in an earnest effort to unify
the party for the coming political
contest. The Democratic party in
this State has suffered an incon
siderable loss by desertions to the
Republicans and Populists, but a
solid front will cause it to triumph
over all opposition.
Louisiana Democrat: What's
the matter with Blanchard that
he should be so recklessly assailed
by his erstwhile friends? Is he
not recognized as a Jeffersonian
democrat from Maine to Louisiana
and are not his free silver speeches
sufficiently radical to suit the
views of the most ultra 16 to 1 ad
vocate? We think we can account
for the animus of the vituperative
editorial blunderbusses which are
now persistently discharging their
defamatory and libelous contents
against him. They have learned
that he is a democrat, notwith
standing his oft-repeated allegiance
to free silver and will assist in pre
serving the autonomy of the dem
ocratic party, even if it is neces
sary to sacrifice free silver in its
Shreveport Jadge: After Mr.
Blanchard's masterly speech at
Robeline Saturday several gentle
men who have been prominently
identified with the Populist party
of Natchitoches parish for the past E
three or four years announced that
from that hour they had severed
their connection with the Populist
party and for all time hereafter
would be found battling in the
Democratic ranks. They were
thoroughly convinced of the error
of their way and returned to their
old and first love the Democratic
party. Hundreds of other Populists
in this district will imitate the ex
ample of their Natchitochbs par

Shreveport Times: For the first
time in their history, Thursday
State bonds went to par. This
shows a most healthy condition of
the State finances. Evidently the
administration has conducted the
affairs of the State on a@ound and
economical basis. It is a proud
reflection in this connection, that
this achievement has occurred un
der and been brought about by a
democratic administration. It is
now in order for some personal foe
to the governor to jump on the
Times because it sees fit to utter
words of praise of an administra
tion that has so managed the fi
nancial operations as to achieve a
status never attained heretofore by
any of his predecessors. A wise, a
careful, a painstaking and econom
ical government alone could malke
such record, and is entitled to the
praise and commendation of every
citizen who thus becomes a benefi
ciary of such a sound financial po
Thibodaux Sentinel: As the time
grows nigh when it will be neces
sary to select candidates for our
various public offices, the inquiry
is'often made as to what methods
of selection will be adopted. As
the Sentinel has stated before,
while not authorized to speak for
the central committee, it believes
the selection will be made by De
mocratic primaries, in accordance
with a long established custom. It
will be recalled that when the
warring faction= of the party buried
the hatchet in the fall of 1892, and
reunited, the basis of the compro
mise was the submission of the se
lection of delegates, candidates,
etc, to democratic primaries. - For
this reason we believe we will have
primaries; we believe the parties
to that agreement will live up to
It may, therefore, be set down as
a fact that Lafourche will stick to
f primaries. Let aspirants shape
their course accordingly.

Sometime ago Deputy Sheriff
Dunham, of Alexandria, La, sent
me a description of a negro, James
Bishey, wanted for horse stealing,
supposed to be on E. W. Sylvester's
place. Showing the letter to that
gentleman he said "I have a man
filling that description but you
must not come after him to-day."
Not suspecting anything wrong, I
acted as he suggested, and called
at his place the following day.
Sylvester gave me the pedigree of
the negro from his grand father
down to his (James Bishey's) birth,
and advised me to communicate
same to Alexandria officials, and
if they decided he was the right
man to come with the proper
papers and get him. Doing as he
requested I wrote to Mr. Dunham
and received by return mail a war
rant for James Bishey alias James
Off I go again after Captain's pet.
Arriving at the plantation I dis
covered my negro driving a wagon
load, of corn to a crib with three
other negroes. To get to him I
had to pass around an old sugar
house. Coming up to the wagon,
to my horror the fugative had hid
in some of the old buildings. All
the information I could get from
Willie Sylvester, who was present,
and the three negroes, was "Ha!
Any officer knows how mad I
was seeing at a glance that every
one on the place knew my business
there. On inquiring I found that
Sylvester never would assist in ar
resting or prosecuting any one in
his reach; to the contrary, one
instance I'm told he (E. W. Syl
vester) harbored one Gambo in his
own house till a compromise was
made with a Mr. Carmoch, paying
five hundred dollars for a drove of
hogs Gambo had stolen. So De
puty Sheriffs, if you don't want to
be laughed at, don't go to Captain's
