I enter upon the candidai'v hbcause
I believe that the people in ordering
this primary election had for their
sole purpose to give an opportunity
to the white Democratic voters of the
State to select their own cadidates

In face of this popular expressior,
it seems that an attempt is being
made, in the same old quarters, to
form combinations, and to elect or

In national politics my record is U

when political methodis had nut been p

when we were compelied to fight suck h

powerful and unscrupulotis enemy, a

succeeded in emancipating the South

Federal political control.
When in 1879 the leading Demo
crstic citizens of the Parishes of Cad

ducted in the United States Circuit

and were brought to trial in New Or

During my whole service in the

of sugar and rice, and successfully

when the former interest was threa
tened with destruction in a Repub

On this occision, I succeeded in
securing the support and co-operation
of every Dtmocratic Senator.
