THE LAFAYETTE GAZETTE. OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THE PARISH AND TOWN OF LAFAYETTE. VOL. V. LAFAYETTE, LA., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1897. NO. 38. -CONSTITUTIJONAL CON VEN TION. The Gazette regrets to see that the -people of this section of the State appear indifferent in regard to the holding of the constitutional convention. Since the overthrow of carpet baggism in Louisiana the people of this State have not been called upon to. decide a question so vital and important to their general welfare. By force of arms the decent white -people of the State redeemed their government from the hands of thieves. They then placed men of their own choice in charge of the -public business and established a government, which, though not :perfect, is immeasureably better than the one whose affairs were ad ministered by a shameless gang of public robbers. For years it was -easy for the better element of the whites to remain in power. They united under the banner of the Democratic party and downed the old en...

THE LAFAYETTE (AZETTE. OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THE PARISH AND. TOWN OF LAFAYETTE. L. V. LAFAYETTE, LA., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1897. NO. 39. THE ISSUE. In this campaign for the election of delegates to the constitutional convention every white man should show his colors. It is not the time for the straggler, the trimmer and the coward. The slogan is: white men to the front. The Democratic party proposes to reform the suffrage and to purify the ballot. Time for action has -dcome and he who fails to see it is blind, or wants to be blind. Those who stand back and cry "Fosterism," and tell you that they are in favor of an intelligent vote and a fair count, are hypocrites. _ They know, or they aught to know, that such a reform is impossible so long as the negroes hold the balance of power. If they were honest in their professions they would not oppose the convention, whose main object is to disfranchise as many blacks as possible. Their opposi tion to a "limited" convention is a subterfuge, ...

In an interview published in the Picayune, Gov. Foster gives a clear .and concise statement in which he gives reasons why the coming Con stitutional Convention should be limited, if held. A careful reading of this review will, no doubt, prove interesting. The Governor says: -'There seems to be a popular error on this subject. The legis lature has placed no limitation upon the convention. In fact, the legislature has not even called a convention. The legislative act simply provides for an election by the people to determine whether they desire a convention',.limited in certain respects, or not. If a ma jority of the people vote 'yea,' they vote for the limited convention and so instruct their delegates who are bound by these instructions.
