Announcements.
We are authorized to announce the
candidacy of E. S. KERR for re-election
to the office of City Judge at the prima
ry election to be held in January, 1916.1
We are authorized to announce
J. M. SANDERS
as a candidate for member of the Low
er House of the General Assemby of
the State of Louisiana, from St. Landry
parish, subject to the action of the
Democratic party.
EXPOSITION YEAR.
As most of our readers are aware
this is Exposition year; two great
expositions are being held on the
Pacific Slope to commemorate the
completion of the Panama Canal.
Many inquiries have conmen t, u:
S about these two expositi,,:., a,
the best routes the probable cost,
that we have determined to put a
special correspondrlent in tne field,
who will furnish data to prospec
tive visitors. There are several
routes that pass through some of
the sublimest scenery and afford
side trips to some of the greatest
natural wonders in the world.
This week we will start with what
we call the Southern Union Pacific
to San Francisco, Los Angeles and
San Diego and return. Tickets for
this route on sale daily until Novem
ber 30th for $57.50, limited to three
months from date of sale, but in no
case later than December 31, 1915:
stopovers are permitted anywhere
enroute upon application to the con- 1
ductor. t
The following is an elegant route: i
Opelousas to Kansas City or Omaha, a
thence over the Union Pacific to 1
Ogden to San Francisco to Los An- d
geles to Santa Fe to San Diego over t
the Southern Pacific and return by
the Salt Lake route to Salt Lake z,
City, then the Union Pacific to St. a
Louis, Kansas City or Omaha. Free cm
'' side trips issued from Denver to w
Colorado Springs or Pueblo and re- to
turn, from Ogden to Salt Lake City la
and return, from Salt Lake City to cc
Yellowstone National Park for $53.50 di
for the full tour, consuming five hI
days, with stage and hotel accom- or
modations, while in the park are in- of
o*tded in this route. Detailed to
itinerary of the park trip, will be wi
given in subsequent articles. ac

To the Editor of the Clarion: we
The Governor announces he is go
ing to suggest to the Legislature the GO
necessity for a Constitutional Con
vention. In my opinion there is
not the slightest necessity therefor, I

vance a sound reason for the same. lar
It will unsettle ocnditions now ex- sta
isting, without a resultant benefit. nor
The Item, is the only paper in din
this state that was frank enough For
to admit that the necessity existing se
was to get more money. The state ton
being unable to dragoon the Legis- and
lature, nor the people into adoption thai
of the proposed tax measures of the to d
present administration, was going to por
insist upon a Convention whereby how
to obtain this money. the
A costly experiment indeed! A senc

these two places and finally their
dreams have been realized.
Police Juror Guillory of the first

have been unable to obtain beolero

road, is a godd one compared with
the crooked and 'muddy highway
over which the people of Mallet and
Prairie Ronde were conpelled to

much improved as to entirely con
