Under the new law no one eacepi qualified electors can be candidates for office; a qualified elector, as our ready ra know. is one who is qialifie I !o vote-that is. who is regisiteiwd sod holds his poll tax receipts for two consecutive years prior to the time offering to tote. One can have paid the poll tax anywhere in the State, but must have resided in the State two years and parish one year before offenng to vote. It a person has actually lived and paid his polt tax in a perish for one year, some lawyers assert that, according to the parish, must live io the parish one year before he becomes a bonaSfie retideut, eligible to hold office in the last parish. However that may be, it is certain no person can hold office who is not a duly qualified elector. This applies to all alike. fMoto the ward constable to Governor.-Opel ouass Courier. -.v .9 Sw 50 ON A PIANO We are the hglags me.adsUams od tigh-grade phaus mnd urps.. h the warM, sad n. i. &m she imhsyar e.assqusatly this .vlss. y Th* h** makes amehe Casewu r a eeakh samn oa instrruw nmnerms so OAIALOGs :: rnam. weareain asasr parara*r P5a* THE CABLE CO.
