If lessons of the past are gukldes

Politic l Eathemalss.
The unusually large vote polled at
the Democratic primary lslat Saturday
reduced estimates on the results
from a political to a mathematical
bauss. It can no longer be a ques
tion whether or not the entire lemo,
eratic twket will win, and the only
matter to be considered i. how great
the Democratic majority will be,
The total registration of the parish
is to the neighhboiho~n of 1850. Out
of that number, although the lay
was cold and dreary from an atmos
pheric point of view but very warm
politically, the Democrats po'led
1300 votes, Now who will attempt
to assert that the remaining 550
voters are all Republ.casu ? Estima
ting that the Democrats on'y polled
four flftls of their actual strength,
which we believe is the usual method
of determining the strength of a
party from the votrs polled during a
spirited primary, we find that there
were in the neighborhood of 260
Democrats who could not participate
in Saturday's primary, Adding this
number to the vote pulled we Snd
that the Democratic streugth in thi,
pas;i consists of 1560 voters out of
a total registration of 1850 or 1900.
These are figures, that, we believe
are approximately correct, and we
believe that any unbiased person who
gives the matter impartial considera.
tion will agree that they are correct
The Democrats in this parish Ihave
always, at a general election polled
several hundrei more votes than at
the preceding prim.ry Even iu
1896, after the hottest kind of aua
election thy polled over two hundred
votes more at the general election
than at the primary.
To state the matter planly ho.
canr any opposition to the Democratic
party of this parish, with a Isuleus
of oniy three or four hundred votes
to work on, expect to defeat the

ported by 1560 out of a possible
