Special to The True Reformer.
The most remarkable I cam
paign that has ever j been waged
in! this State is nearing its close,
and on next Thursday the people
of our commonwealth will goT to
the polls and express their seve
ral wishes as to State and coun
ty; officers, and the jail important,
subject-pthe amendment to the
State 1 Constitution. Your obebi-1
dient servant has written several
articies on this subject, ! to ' your
paper, land noWibn the eve o
the election,' he; sees no reason
why; he should change the dot
ting of an "I" or the crossing of
a 4T" of what has hitherto been
said. These former statements
I .:1 I i . ... ! ' i i ; .... V, , . i..
were written from Washington,
D. C., and now that we have
spent a number' of weeks in the
Old, North State, our former
opinions have ) been verified.
This proposed amendment to the
ed, and the reason
Known 1 to almost' everv
the land. That it is ! unconstitu
tional is a fact known, if not ad!
mitted. , by all lawyers. Some
have gone so. far as to say that
the XV Amendment to the Con
stitution' of the United States
1 1 ..
a more honorable course than
for a part of I our people to at-
tempt to ride j-rough shod over
one of the organic laws of this
country. ! If thoe who are op
posed to Negro suffrasre should

and we havje heard them remark
within the last month that , this
abuse heaped upon! inoffensive
heads of patriotic people is with
out foundation and
A great number of the colored
people of INorth Carolina have
taken fright ;Y at the! manner in
which democratic ; i papers and
speakers have been1 dealing with

them, i and

estiy say' that 1 this wou
to support the constitution of the
United States which every elec
tor has sworn to j supportl ) ,
We hope that every colored
man. Of 21 years and upward, in
this State, , has 1 registered
this election that he may go
record as favoring law and obey
ing the mandates of the founders
of our common country; and
every ; one who has registered
should go to the polls and vote,
although it has been frequently
stated that all votes cast, wheth
er for or against this proposed
amendment, would be. counted as
cast for the amendment. ' This
should not be the case, however,
as, even the election law allows
each candidate, or his represen
tative, to be present at the count
ing of the ballots. The greatest
possible precaution should be
taken, and an accurate list of all
voters at every precinct, andJ
how they voted, should be kept,
this have lft the ktate for other
climes where they are not the
target of every species of abuse,
and where they do not make up
the issues of a democratic j cam
paign. It Is the jworking class'
of colored people who have -been
gradually moving jaway from the
State, and unless
this abuse is
ended,1 and the" colored man is
treated more like the friendly
citizen he is than the
sloathf ul enemy that he is . not,
there will be a steady stream Of
this very desirable class, of peo
ple leaving! the State to enrichi
another by?their profitable labor, j
It occurs'-to us that of all peo
ple to be treated with , proper
respect, is jthe hard working,
laboring diss, and this thought
was stamped upon me the other
day when the oppressed sizzard
was loitering over the country
and saw a hard working colored
register and vope on !a subject of
this kind, they would not violate
any law, nor would
auy oath which they
