we have not been called upon to witness
the same character of political events
since the adoption of the direct primary
that we did before.
No man knows better than Mr. George
the political history and political meth
ods In our state under tna convention
system. - He knows that we have had
practically but one great party In the
state for many years. He knows that
the one party has been so far In the
minority that there has been no real
contest for principle between the parties,
but that it has always narrowed down
to a fractional party strife for the spoils
of office. t
Demoralised by Strife.
Mr. George knows that this condition
had caused the Republican party to be
rent by factions and demoralized by In
ternal strife long before the direct pri
mary was thought of and that this not

a candidate of the oppoalte party. As

Prasent tystem Batter,
Mr. George knows that-we have had
cletles,v selected as the subject of Its none of these things under the present
first pageant Milton's "Paradise Lost.
After the parade the organization gave
a ball at the Varieties theatre, in con
Junction with which a eeries of tableaux
was presented Illustrating sueh subjects
as "The Diabolic Powers' and "The Ex
pulsion from Paradise." The second of
the carnival organisations was the
Twelfth MRlit Revellers, which came
Into existence in 1870, it gives an an-
lll linn L INTI J' '17tn uuunc. i HU
other Important carnival organizations
are the Knights of Momtis and the
Krewe of Proteus. th former organized
in isiz tne latter in ibss. iney, witn
the Krewe of Comus. always anorar on
the streets of New Orleans by night,
and after the parade entertain on a
lavish scale at the Inevitable ball at
the French opera bouse.
The day time pageant of the New Or
leans carnival is provided by the Rex
organisation. "Thls society Is essentially
the "popular' carnival organization. It
has tha largest membership, spends the
most money and claims a certain pre
eminence In carnival nffalrs. Its "king"
Is king of the carnival; Its "queen" is
queen of the carnival. Rex was or
ganised in VI 872. The maskers who had
' filled th streets at Mardi Gras with
their gaudy costumes. wxre In that year
assembled In one organisation for the
entertainment of the Russian Grand
Duke. Alexis, then a visitor to New Or
leans; and the bond of union thus
formed .was sufficiently strong to hold
tha members lit the federation . which
came eventually to be the most pic
turesque of the whole carnival, t
Mask Ball Sooletles.
In addition to these societies there
are aome six or eight important organ
izations which make no street display,
but limit their efforts to giving an an
nual ball at the French opera house. Of
these,' allusion has been made to the
oldest, the Twelfth Night Revellers. The
others, listed In order of seniority, are
Atlanteana, Oberon, Nereua, Mythras,
raiaiamans , ana uiympians. At mese
balls the members of the organizations
appear In mask, and the first four
dances are reserved for them and for
their partners exclusively; after which
the floor Is open to the other guests. To
ba asked to share In the maskers' dances
system. Possibly I was tn error In say
ing that the direct primary had "super
seded the convention:" I do pretend to
comprehend the full legal Interpretation
votes among themselves, according to
the amount of personal effort they may
be able to put Into the campaign. It
will always be a divided field or indi
vlduala against the organized force of
the machine.
I repeat the question, who Is the can
didate who would be rooihardiy enougn
to try to get a nomination by any other
means than the convention, after it hod
once been fully restored to power Then
what Is the further use tf the direct
primary? Is the assembly a menace?
Thinking people will pause and consider.
Mr. George concedes that the assembly
candidate will always get the votes "If
good assembly work is done." And, per
mit me to suggest, the Influences that
control the assembly will see that "good
work Is done," not only in the assembly
but afterward, throughout the primary
campaign, If there Is one. They always
did do It; why are they so anxious now
If they do noti expect to do so again?
For all of Mr. George's display of fine
legal points which he pretends to be
lieve will obviate a'l causes of friction
between tlife two methods, I am still per
suaded that If tha people .wish -to re
tain control of their political affairs
they will Insist on the direct primary
remaining. If they wish to turn the
nominations over to the same Influences
that controlled them before, they will
consent to' the restoration of the con
vention or tho assembly.
Is one of the proudest honors of the
society womfen In New Orleans.
At these balls one member of the or
ganization Is always selected to preside
as "king." The throne Is shared by
some young woman, usually a debu
tante, called the "queen." To wear the
tinsel crown of the Atlanteans, or of
Mythras, or some other of the minor so
cieties is an Important event In the life
of any young woman In New Orlean:
while to be "eueen" of Comus, Proteus
or . Momtis, is to score a triumph of
dazzling brilliancy. All these distinc
tions, however, pale before the honor of
the "queen of the carnival," the occu
pant of Rex's throne and the recipient
of the bomage of all New Orleans.
Generally, queen and maids are
chosen from the families of members
of tho organization. This rule has been
occasionally violated, as. for Instance,
when Winnie Davis, "The Daughter of
the Confederacy," was chosen to pre
side over one of the carnival balls.
Miss Davis has no relatives in tho
carnival organization which made her
its "queen," but her case is hot looked
upon aa establishing a precedent.
Jewels Given to Honored Ones.
The "king" is always some member
of tho organization who has been long
in service His Identity Is made known
to the whole membership, in the case
of all the organizations save Rex, only
on the night of the entertainment. Rex
which gives two pageants, one today
and one tomorrow, has two kings,
whose identity is revealed ,to the mem
bers just before the pageants start
The King of the Carnival." is the
monarch who will preside over the Rex
festivities tomorrow. His name is
eventually made public by the New
Orleans newspapers, and Is the only
one In . connection with the ' carnlva
which is thus revealed, all the other
'kings' remaining unknown so far as
the public in general la concerned. The

Balls Ara Exclusive.
In order to understand what the
carnival balls are. two points must be
borne In' mind. The first Is, the es
sentially private character of these en
tertainments. The societies consider
that the parades are for the public.
but the balls are for themselves. In
vltatlons are therefore hard to procure
and are highly valued. The other point
is, . tbat these carnival balls are the
descendants of the old "king parties"
popular in colonial Louisiana, and' still
enjoyed In the rural parts of the state.
In theae scattered communities, where
the week-end dance Is the1 main amuse
ment. It is customary to crown some
young man "king." who is thereby put
under obligation to entertain at a sim
ilar ball within a specified time. These
continue until the advent of Lent puts
an end tosuch gaitiea.
The average carnival society has be
tween 250 and 400 members, and the
dues range from $25 to $100. There are
probably less than 3000 men, whose
time, money and brains make and pay
for tha New Orleans carnival. They
represent the most exclusive circles in
the city. Who they are is a matter of
speculation, as the names of the mem
bers are jealously guarded. In fact,
everything about the carnival is kept
a profound secret, partly because it
is necessary to make the pageants ef
fective; but also because the mystery
whets the enjoyment of the participants.
The maskers upon the cars in the
carnival processions are the rich prom
inent and exclusive citizens of New
Orleans. It Is sometimes hard for the
visitor to understand that elderly busi
ness men, bankers brokers, noted
lawyer and Judges should be willing t,o
don the mask and costume and undergo
the" fatigue of a carnival parade, but
such is the fact
Expenalva Entertalment.
On the .carnival parades and the balls
of the six or eight minor societies, New
Orleans spends from $160,000 to $175,
OOfll. The average pageant costs from
$13,000 to $20,000. These sums are
drawn almost exclusively from the
pockets of the members. In addition
to the dues, every member appearing

pected to present flowers and souvenirs
to the young ladies with whom , he
dances, which., toe-ether with th ex
pense of carriages and auppers. seldom
amount to less than $100 for' tha even
ing's 'entertainment. . .
rioata Work of Art.
For many years tha chief carnival
pageants were designed by B. A. Wlk-
strom. the New Orleans artist, who died
In New York last year while at work on
the Hudson river pageant. The finest
floats are made by one firm, a father
and his sons. In their huge workshops
on the outskirts of New Orleans the
work goes on rapidly throughout tho
year, two or three, cars' being completed
every week, ao that within, eight months
the Comus, Proteus, Rex Taud Momuu
cars are all completed.: It is the fact
that nowhere else In the world can
workmen equally Ingenious be found to
undertake this sort of labor, that makes
tha New Orleans carnival unique. In
fact Uhe; failure of attempt after at
tempt to ,, Imitate these pageants . lias
led to the curious practice of other cit
ies buying the cars ! after they ; have
been used - In New Orleans. Rex gets
bapk some of the money It spends .this
way; but the other large organizations
do not sell their cars, nor make,. any
attempt to carry over from year to
year' anything of importance. Vast
throngs flock to New Orleana to see the

share of the millions left by her father,
who was the head of the great sugar
