John Emmer and composed of a set of clear headed young business men in all of whom the people of New Iberia have implicit confidence. The elec tors who participated in the Demo cratic primaries did themselves honor in the selection of such an excellent group of men, and all thoughtful electors, mindful of the important interests the city has to safeguard, and irrespective of partv considerations, will unite in giving them one of the largest majorities yet recorded in a municipal contest.
