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.
The Denhi a says we lied .bout
the express car gettig ihot full
of holes at Pollock. That may be
the case, but we once saw several
bullets go through a ear at Pollock
and have une hea, f a man
gewtia. le hton. out the re
by a lillt that -went through a
panel in a duor.
The Areadia Al.a says there
is noblind tigers in that town.
A number of people there always
order whiskey on certain occa
sions and the Argue says they
order it to get "dog-drunk on"
and have none tpil.
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. Nation say
Prophet Dowie is a fake 'and
Dewie says Aunt Carrie is a sen
sational montebank. We agree
with both.
Now the candidates will _get
down to their knitting and we
may expect to aee deme tall hust
ling done between no* and Chris
mas.
The press of the country hv
ing ceised to discuss the subject,
we presume the poetal theives
have all been sent to the peniten
t.ry.

ted by the authonty-f the State
Democratic Executive Commit
tee, and I will support the nom
inee of this primary election,

white persons who have hereto
fore affiliated with other politi
cal parties and now honestly de
sire to affiliate with the Demo
cratic party and assist in making
nominations, are invited to join
with us in our primary.
12. 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. Therefore be it resolyed:
That the Democratic part, of
Winn parish pledge itself to re
form along this line, habould they
be succemsfulin gainl control
of theim afairs of the parsh. . .
