Democratic Mass Meeting. Thursday afternoon, pursuant to a call of the Town Democratic Execu tive Committee, a large number of voters assembled in Mass Meeting at the Town Hall for the purpose of nominating candidates for Mayor, Al dermen and Marshal. Great inter eat was manifested and the gathering was the largest that assembled in years for the nomination of the town eicials. The meeting was called to by Mr. J. L. Aucoin, chairman ds Exeeutive Committee, who in the assembly that its first the appomutmet of a chair som of Hon. H. N. uoa sate sae-si ,sh' vilege to address the assembly. Is request being granted he made a brief statement of the work done by his ado!nistration of six years. Dr. Thomas Stark offered the following resolution which was unanimously ac cepted: "Resolved by the Democratic party of the Town of Thibodaux in Mass Meeting assembled, that no one unless he be a Democrat and a duly qualified elector under the laws of this State, shall have any voice in this meeting, and that all persons taking part hi this mass meeting, are hereby consi dered to be and are bound to any and all decisions adopted by this meeting." Judge L. P. Caillouet then nloved that when the assembly proceed to nominate a municipal ticket that a mayor and five aldermen and one marshal be balloted for, and that no one be declared a nominee for either office unless he received a majority of the votes cast, and that after the first ballot if there be nomination, the candidate receiving the lowest num ber of votes be dropped, and a second ballot, or more be taken, if necessary, until the nominations he effected. This motion having been duly seconded Mr. Thomas A. Badeaux, inquired if the purport of the motion was that the meeting proceed then and there to make nominations, whereupon the mover replied that he understood that the call of the meeting by the Execu. Live Committee was for that purpose, and that the motion contemplated such action by the meeting. Thereupon Mr. Badeaex offred as f substitute for the motiem a series liMielafthess' Mult~a I Demoldge` primary election to nominate a mayor, aliermen and a marshal, and regulat ing the holding of the same, and ad dressed the meeting in support of his resolutions, and in favor of a pri mary. Judge Caillonet, while favoring a primary election, objected to the sub stitute because of the lack of time, inasmuch as, lie contended, the no. i nation certificate must be filed with the Secretary of State not later thin fourth Tuesday before the election, and that under the primary election law, at least fifteen days' notice by publication of the election had to be given before the primary could be held. Mr. Badeaux contended that I the primaiy election was not manda. t.ory, and cottld be ignored. Major W. P. Martin then obtained the floor and argued that inasmuch i as there was a difference of opinion I among lawyers, whether we were bound to follow the primary election, in case a primary election was held, it was better not to take any chances, and therefore moved to lay the sub stitue on the table. A Viva voce vote was taken on this motion, and the vote being uncertain, a divimon was called for and ordered, I resulting in 85 to 42 in favor of tab ling the bubstitute. The original motion was then put and carried, whereupon some members of the minority withdrew. Major Martin then moved that the balloting for nominees be made by I each voter depositing his ballot In a box or hat kept by two tellers, after his mamae had been registered by the soeestary on a list of voters. The 'hoioiations Were then made, a resulting In the unanimous nomina tion of Mr. WV. C. Ragan for Mayor, there being no other nomsnation. A ballot was then taken for fivet Aldermen and one marshal, in which < one hundred and seven vote., were east, and resulted in the nomination( -t Mlessrs. Henry Rivacie, Viny La - garde, P. J. Aucoin, C. 0. Dantin and William H. Ragman, for a!derinen and a It. J. Naijuin for marshal. Mr. P. L.. I Brand then moved that a D.-mocratic Bxecutive Committee of five for tli. i town of Thiboxxaox be appoiznt. d, to a discharge the uisual functions of su b a comimittee, with power to fi:1 va cancies o(-curritlg in this imembeirstip.

All that white men in this section desire is that their white coun trymen at the North come South, put themselves In the Southern white man's place and do unto the white race here as Northerners would be done by.
