Baton Rouge, La., Sept, 21.
The situation in the congressional
race has livened up considerably
during the past week. Around
-dthe headquarteas et Hon. Louis
SMosgan, the leading candidate
oro Congress, there has been a
' * marked degree of activity during
the past few days. The workers
interested in Mr. Morgan's sue
eqss in East Baton Rouge have'
been industriously circulating
petition for membership in the
Morgan Club, which is being
formed in this parish.
Already several hundred sig
na tares have been secured, in
cluding among them names of
many of the most prominent
citisans of both the city of Baton
Bouge and its outlying country.
'The -gentlemen in charge of the 1
organisalion of this club have se- I
ced- rooms on the second iloor ]
of the Elks' theater building, I
which are filled up for the pur
poseof discussing the campaign
in this parish.
ilmmediately after the 'first
plIPry the friends of Mr. Clai
•bas made the claim that they
wouldcarry the parish of East
Baton Rouge by a large majority,
but if the signs do not fail it can
be reasonably said that the race
in East Baton Rouge will be ex
treme y close, with a strong lia
bllty of Mr. Morgan emnerging
