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

"It's only a cold," and a few days
later learn that the man is on his

A greater volhme of

scholarly depth and dignity,
rank as high as those of any
