A PLEASANT INCIDENT. aDurlng the meeting ,pf the Parish Democratic ' Executive Committee Capt. John Hamilton, of Union parish, was an interested 'Spectator. He was here on a visit to relatives and camine out to the corimittee meeting. Before leav ing he took occasion to make a shgtt talk dering which he com plimented the committee on the spirit of fairness that seemed to prevail throughout the deliber ationsand gave some good advice and ericourigement to the Demo crats. His talk was pleasant and was highly appreciated by those who heard it. IMPROVING AN OPPORTUNiIY. Hon. Geo. A. Kelly, special representative of the Shreveport Journal, and who claims to be the original Blanchard man from Winn parish, never lets an oppor tunity pass without improving it. He attended the meeting of the Executive Committee and offered many valuable suggestions to the Committee during its session. He also took occasion to remark on Judge Blanchird's candidacy and urged the claims of that gentleman. He succeeded in getting a committee appointed to arrange dates for speech-mak ingin this parish and to confer with the State candidates as t when they ciif, come to this parish. Mr. R&Ily is one of these workers that neter gives up untit the thing undirtaken is finished, and in this case he will not let up till Blanchard is safely seated in he gubneratoarial chair.

Editor.,, Munholland of the" Farmervllle Gazette announced his candidacy for the Senate in' his paper and .lraighway found himself into a controversy with an "eeteemel contemnpo rary." The -bhealth ithorities of Shreveport have uarantined the Bingling circus and will not let it come to that city. That is tough on the newspaper men there. No honest white man could find objection to; the rules as laid down by the executive com mittee. If he objects then he is nat an honest Democrat. Aunt Carrie.

Whereas, we believe in taxation for revenue only, in Just such proportions as will satisfy the needs of the parish honestly and economically administered and with all du& regards to the needed public improvement, ae assert that valuations and rates of assessment which produces $27,000.00 per annum for parish purposes is too high and is far in exeess of the neea of the pirish. And w9 further believe that when such immense revenues in eaome of theneedsofthe prmui'h, eco ndenically administered, is not De nocratic, and opens the dooar to vast extravagance In perish at fairs.
