is Barret 8incero.
We hope that lhe is. We would
very much dislike for any man to
Pun for Governor of our great
state, and especially on the pro
hibition ticket who was not, sin
eere in the advocacy of any ma
terial issue before the people.
We have our doubts, however,. as
to Mr. IBarret.s sincerity on the
prohibition question; in fact we
doubt his sincerity on any ques
tion exoept that he wants to be
governor. We do not want to do
Mr. Barret an injustice: We
hope that we ate mistaken in our
estimate of him as a muan but
with the facts before us of his
*hangiig "over-night" from one
position to another, not only on
&e whiskey question but on va.
pious ancd sundry other questions,
makes us believe him insincere
and that his advocacy of any
question is nearly always for
pesoual and political gain.
When the question of constitu
indlI convention was first men
end -last spr:at. Mr. librret

and tol Wexler had their

gethotr or the convention and all
the dl ; IewSj)3apers came out
for i., wiin MIr. arret changer "I

, uion. a' hl sincer,,e or I i
a 1: )litical expedienrcy that thi
cauuý ..the change We
``1t1'i the 1iliq 1" f-iht. wa,ý on
at Shreveport Mr. Ithrret failed to Ire
take a stand with either side Fri
Both sideS claimed him but I.l a -
one klncw how he stood. The an(
ni1 lt after t hle election tIe lead- - ta
'r of the pioluibitiufnists called up tht
Mr. Barret, who he tLhouhlit was, ,a1
withi the prm hlibitionists in t heir anl
figh t, and told him 'We have won tht
by 62 majority;" Barret replyed:; go
''That's good but I thought we Th
would have won by at least 250 Cli
majority." After this, on the of
same night he, Mr. Barret, calls de
up the leader of the whisliey thi
fight and says, "I have bad news tit
for you.-We have lost by 62 Ni
majority." Was Mr. Barret sin- in
cere when he carried on these lie
two conversations?
Mr. Barret was for local option ne
up until he announced for gov- w,
ernor in September. Was he th
sincere when he chang 4d his nt
mind 'overnight' and then an- p
nounced for prohibition? If he th
had a right to change his mind ri
then, on so short a notice, wont ot
he have the same right if he is y<
elected Governor? Mr. Barret's ye
chief advisors. Gov. Blanchard, t8
his brother-in-law, Judge Story
and others are not only not for is
state-wide prohibition but are a
"wets" and against prohibitionu
in any form. They helped Mr. tl
Bart'et make up his mind for this li
prohibition plank in his platform. p
Everyone knows they don't be- b
lieve in prohibtition and if these l1
''wets"'' influenced Mr. 13arret in r
proclaiming for prohibition for s
political purposes, what will their t
influence be after his election? s
We believe that every one who a
will lay aside predjudices and la
will make an honest study of the t
political situation as it exists to- r
day, will not only not approve of a
Mr. lBarret's candidacy but will 1
be strong against him. Don't (
let your love for the cause of c
prohibition cause you to be duped I
by this political opertunist. We
believe in prohibition, it is as
dear to us as it is to you but we I
are not willing to support and (
honor a man who joins our ranks i
for no other purpose than to get
that honor and support. Let I
Mr. Baiaret prove his sudden con
version by his works before we 1
elevate him to the highedt office <
in our gift,
If the Hon. Thomas C. Barret
is r'eally in earnest in rcgard to
prohibition; if he really wants
the questi in of state-wide prohi
bition submitt id to the people
why doese i't he and those be
- hind him institute a fight for the
membership of the house of rep
resentatives arid the Senate?
to Everyone knows that it is impos
at sible to get any aot through the
v- legislature u;uless a majority of
nf- that legislature favors the act.
a- A canvass has been made of the
e cindidates for the Senate and it
heis found that a majority of five
e tire absolutely pledged against
s- state -wide prohibition. thmoy are
be also pledged ngainst the eon gres
do sional unit and among those who
N~Ce
mr are opposed tostate-wide prohi
>ut bition and the congressional u nit
his is Mr Barret's nephew, Senator
me Smith of Caildo. No Governor
on can accomplish anything in any
a given legislation unless the legis
ns,
latur is with him. No one
ree
ny knows this better than Mr. Bar.
for ret and yet he has nev r' cpened
in. lh- mouth o01 dotIe Fllythiing to
tu- ward influencing thli people to
Bn- elect a legislatmii'e pledged to oar
ret ry out his polhiies. The truth of

(Coopperatioll Of CitV And LL
State.
The splendid article below on
co( ;rat iotl, taken fromti the Sty.
Tammaina i' armller is certainly to 111a
the pcaint and is worth reading. we
\Ve cnpy in full as follows: wl
\V'. P. Thompson, in his ad- lan
dress before the New Orleans (
Press Club a few days ago, made col
a -trolig appeal for co-ordination are
and co- perati'n oIf city and
-ate. li said "'thle people of int
the city and eiulltry should co- c hi
erdinatt their several faculties
and resources and co-operate for '
their individual anid common of
good,' It is said that Mr. to
SThompson spoke at the Press i
SClub symposium in furtherance sh
of its plans for the constructive m
Sdevelopment of New Orleans and re
the state of Louisiana." The i ra
3 title of his discourse was, "How i
i Newspapers Can Best Be Helpful fo
in Promoting Closer Relations A
Between the City and the State." lil
VWe have read much about the tl
i necessity of preparedness for
- war, and we believe a majority of y,
e the people consider that prepared tl
3 ness is the safest way of keeping It
peace, not because it may lead to
e the maintenance of juseice and sl
I right, but because it mnikl- cIk
t other fellow afraid to step on e.
s your corns, and will even enable t
s you to step on his without re
1, tailiation.
r Now the city of New Orleals
1r is a big organization of clin
e and brains and business alhly.
i Heretofore it has sapped every- i
r. thing out of the country with very
is little return. It has sent shrewd
n. politicians to the legislature to
3- becomte leaders with the best
Be lawyer at their command, and the
in n3wspapers of New Orleans have
or spread the gospel of political fac-I
ir tions, boosted home productions,
i? smiled at the leading merchant
io and citizen and cut up generally
id about tha second largest port in
he the United States; but we do not
- remember that they have ever
of said, "If you do1r't mend your
ill ways and give the country a
i't chance it may, through sheer
of desperation, seek other fields and
ed forget that you exist."
te We venture that not another
as city half the size of New Orleans
we provides a poorer market for
nd country or has taken less interes t
ks in the welfare of the farmer. The
'et country merchant who may not
et buy in St. Louis, Chico ;-e and
in- New York only suiles n inh pride
we when last years goods are marke I
ice down below cost. In the rmieao -
time ihe is loosing trade to muil
order houses.....and these houses
ret are not New Orleans.
to Now, then, the country has
Its been preparing fIr war, during
hi' the past few years and country
newspapers have been cheering
ple the movement along to beat the
)e" band, but her navy is good
Lhe schools and her soilders are edu
sp. cated children. State Superin
te? tendent of Education Harris has
been the commander in-chief of
these operations, and lie has
he made a good commu !!r , too.
of This army will be the untry's I
,ct. defense and salvati 'ii, Lr it it
the wlliing to join forcti w u; New
it Orleans in any rrndertakimng that
may result avoiably to beth, and
inc
the country press, no doubt, is
nst .villing too. But there must be
-ire nio politics in it and no attempt to
es- Iomluntil the press of the state, The
:ho big papers already have quite a
,hi- ollowinig that shoots every time
the big paper hollers. There
nit
must be somethirrg in this co
tor operation that makes for more
nor money for the farmer, better
mny homes and more enjoyment Tnd
is- social standing for his wife and
one children. That kind of co-opera
tion wiil.' co-ordinate with the
lar. farmer-'s ideas, ard the country
"ed press would not dare do anything
to- but boost ii."

In years past farmers have been

realizing small profits while the
