The voters are the great jury of the

should decide fairly and impartially.

schools in this State, for before thev
iook noia oi tne tree school system it
was a mere sham. The republicans
nau so squandered the tree school
funds that there was no money left to
support tne schools; ilut.wiieii the
democratic party came into nowpr

ot their nns tort tines, than the repub
licans of Massachusetts have shown1
The constitution of North Carolina
was amended by the democratic par
ty in l875-'76, and it secures tjie
samcrights to the white and colered
race alike. It excludes no- colored
man from voting because he cannot
read and write, or because he has not
paid his taxes, vln I the republican
State of Massachusetts a colored man
is not allowed to vote uuless he can
read and write, aud has paid bis
taxes. The constitution and laws of
Massachusetts, adopted and enforced
by the republican party, would pre
vent more that 75,000 poor and un
fortunate colored men from exercising
the right 'of suffmcre in. North Caro
lina. Nowhere is. the respectable col
ored man who would be willing to
exchange, it he could, the constitution
and laws of North Carolina for the
constitution and laws of Massachu
setts. If tlyBre be such a one. he must
ue lniiucnceu by ignorance and pre
judice and not by good reason and
common sen e.
In Ithode Island, another renubli
can State, and has been so all the
time, a colored man lis not allowed to
vote unless tie owns real estate of the
assessed cash value of 134.00 at
least, and shows his tax receipt for
ine same years, before he can vote.
Would the colored men of North
Carolina be willing to exchange, if

laws of Rhode Island ? Every colored
man would say no I
In Pennsylvania, another renubli-
cau State, the white republicans do
not allow any colored man to hold an
office of honor or profit, although
there is a large colored population in
tnai otaie. i ne city ot Philadelphia
has been entirely under republican
control for almost twenty years, until
the last year or two, and no colored
man was ever permitted to hold any
office of honor or profit under repub
lican rule, or even to vote until he
has paid his taxes. ! Cut when the
present democratic Mayor, Kiug, was
elected to that office, he put several
colored men on. the police force, and
showed more respect for the claims of
colored men than any republican had
eversnowu. 111 Pennsylvania there
are many colored men of education
and respectability, and yet the white
republicans have never recognized
the claims or merits of the colored
people by allowing . them to hold
any public office. i
The New York Glode, a publica
tion devoted to the interests of the
colored race, says that '.Pennsylva
nia's colored population of 85,535 is
as completely ignored by the politi
cians as if it did not contain 30.000

All these appointments are now held
by white republicans, except the la

privy cleaners, who are of course colored.-

It is a fact to be deploredr and
still it is a fact that North Carolin
ians, as-a rule, are more familiar with
the natural features of New England
than those of their own State, know
more of the White Mountains than of
the Blue Ridge, and know more of
the lakes of northern New York titan
of the beautiful inland seas that lie
embedded in the ever green forests of
eastern Carolina. The Charleston,
