December the 9th to every friend of
this important and progressive step.
VVe call upon every citizen of
the sunny south, regardless of loca

their lives for the greatest thing the
South has ever asked for its people

may be used to overcome any oppo

But the part which caused most

rendered so as to entertain the un

which could grasp the ideas of the
most difficult selection.
The only regret we have is that
