The Daily Leader (Ruston) wisely the
remarks : to
"It is from Congress, rather than e
from the courts, that the suffrage ,
laws of the Southern States, aimed at Ir
the illiterate negro vote, have reason ala
to tear the attack.
And yet, there are within the con
fines of our own parish a few deluded
men who are unwittingly aiding the
Cfatlery onspirators to so place our no
State that a Republican Congress lea
coulil, and would, easily override this the
or any other organic law which might val
be distasteful to them. Allow the
Republican Fusion party to win in
Louisiana, and the negro at once be. the
comes a factor, a dark cloud that
would obscure the bright sunlight of l
Democratic advancement, and devel. tip
opment, and prosperity, andl throw
our State backward at least 25
In truth, the harm is done already,
to a considerab'e extent. The attacks at
upon the constitution by the Cafferys miti
and their gang cf political freeboot- th
era will inspire the Republic.ns of Dc
the North to try to overthrow our ur
suffrage system by which the negro is er,
practically eliminated. Should that
unholy baud of conspirators against a,
the welfare of the State succeed m,
in electing their ticket in April next, ap
the overthrow of the suffrage clause efi
of the constitution will be almost an wi

Why Should ae Object. to
Senator Caffery seems indignant 01
at the fact that some 300 negroes Al
attended his meeting in Shreveport,
the other day, and charges that the a
Democrats' of that thriving city put i
up a job on him and the other speak
era who addressed that meeting.
Truly, the Senator is blessed with
a short memory, else he would re.
mcmh:r that he is fiddling for a men- of
agerie wLose leaders, when they th
effected the celebrated Howell Her
wig Combination last January, in m
New Orleans, specially invited the to
negro to join them. All opposed to
the Dmocratic party, withoutt dis- r
tinction of color, race, nativity or
religion, were extended a cordial n
invitation to jump into their band
wagon and ride on to to glory.
Again, if his memory were not so
de.fective, he would recall th.e fact
that some negroes-some twenty five P
or thirty, in number-sat in the Al- "
exandria convention and par!icipated u
in the nomioattom of the ticket fr
which the one he is now supporting
