Section 1. Be it enacted by the Gen eral Assembly of the State of Louisiana That immediately after any Act shall go into effect establishing and organ izing a new parish in this State, the Governor shall appoint and commis sion to serve as police jurors in said parish five persons who shall be citi zens and electors of the said parish Sand who shall possess the qualifica tions now required by law for police t jurors; and the Governor shall like wise appoint and commission for said new parish a registrar of voters and Sa member of the Board- of Election e Supervisors.

Wilson Given Unanimous Nomination At on 46 Ballot, Marshall of Indiana Given Second Place. th After one of the greatest deadlocks Fi in the history of the Democratic partv, Si there having been but two greater, one a in 1252 when Pierce was nominated on the 49 ballot and the other in 1860 K when the partv split after the 59 bal- se lot, Woodrow Wilson, teacher, editor F and governor of New Jersev was ,, given the unanimous nomination of the democratic cenvention at 315 m Tuesday. This has been one of the hardest fought political contests ever held in tip this country, and was unique from the n fact that the man, who thrice failed to w secure the election to the presidency after having beeni given the nomina- i tion of his party, practically dictated the course of the convention. It may safely be said that to Win. Jennings m Bryan, is due that Woodrow Wilson was nominated on the 46 hballot, rather Ill than Champ Clark at a much earlier ,, stage of the game.A While a break was exlpected long before it came, it was not until after T the 44th ballot was taken that it be rm came evident that the New Jersev man would succeed in securing the nomin ation, The total of the 43rd ballot was Wilson 702, Clark 329, Underwood 99k. Harmon 26, Kerns 1, Foss 27, Bryan 1, absent f. 1I On the 44th ballot Clark showed ao loss of '3, while Wilson's gain was 27 the ballot being, Wilson 6 9, Clark t 306, Underwood 99, H-Iarmnon 27, Foss 27. Lacking but 97 votes on the 44th ti ballot, of a majority sufficient to elect the Wilson forces, got buss to round up the needed tallies. So certain was b Wilson's success now, that when Sen- c ator l3ankhead withdrew Underwood's name from the convention, there was a general rush of the lesser candi dates to aliugn their voting strength with the winning man. Fitzgerld of New York moved that Wilson's nomination be mande unani- S mou. Stone of Missouri having se cured consent to make a speechb, released the Missouri delegates from their instructions to support Speaker Clark, and Mr. Wilson's nomination was made unanimous. Governor Thomas II, Marshall, of e Indiana was choosen as Wilson's running mate after the second ballot t had been taken. As in the case of Wilson's nomination, his nomination was made unanimous. with this Act, or with the other laws of the State. Section 2. Bc it further enacted, etc t That the police jurors so appointedm by the Governor as above provided shall within ten (10) days after toe re ceipt of their comnmissioxis meet in I said parish at the town at which the I affairs of the parish shall be tempom-' arily administered in accordance with I the Act creating the same, or if no town be so named, then at such town as they may agree on, at which meet ing they shall proceed to organize.i themselves into a police jury or the said lparish and shall lprescribe the conditions under which any place or towns within said parish may compete at the election hereafter authorized , for the location of the permanent par ish seat of said parish; and they shall also immediately divide the sail pilrl ish into not less than five seiparate wat'ds to be known as Justice of the Peace and Police Jury Wards; shall lesignitte a polling place or places in each of said wards and precincts for holding the special election herein after provided for as well as all other elections atbhorized by law for State and parish oflcers and all other pur poses.
