THE CAUCASIAN. Official Journal of the City of Shreveport. THURSDAY, APRIL ';, 1903. AN ISSUE IN THE STATE CAMI PAIGN. In this issue is reproduced from the Times-Democrat of April 9 an editorial headed "Politics in Two States," which is commended to the careful and earn est perusal of every reader of the Cau casian. It is gratifing to note that the question of nominations by primary elections is growing and becoming -ll powerful, as indicated by the utterances of the press throuethout the State. The great majority of Democrats who vote are realizing the effect of the abuses, of "cut and dried" conventions where the program of a few is schemed through, after which the dear, good people who may not favor such meth ods or scheming may be - . In the future, as in the past, the very sugges tion of the nomination of officials from governor to constable by primary elec tions will arouse the wrath of the politi cal time-servers, the untiring feeders at the public crib, whose power and in fl...

THE CAUCASIAN. Official Journal of the City of Shreveport. SUNDAY. APRIL 19. 1903. TIlE POOR MAN "RACKET." The poor man "racket" is another plea of the long and untiring feeders in oppo sition to nominations by primary elec tions. The long feeders favor the "cut and dried" convention system because it can he manipulated to meet their aims and p.orp;oses. A primary is more or less embarrassing a:d uncertain in its con clusiveness and results. The advocates of the old convention system pretend sin cerity when they allege that no poor man can be a candidate for any State office and win in a primary unless he has at his hands a barrel of money. But what is the poor man's opportunity in a con vention which is stocked against him? It has been developed in Mississippi that the primary system is not more expen sive to the candidate, say for governor, than the convention, and one of the ad vantages of the primary is that every poor man entitled to vote may cast his ballot directly for the ca...
