The greatest enemies this coun
try has today is the favors-hunting
voters. The fellows, who sell their
votes and consciences to have an
, official give him that which of
right belongs to every citizen.
The man who has do regard for
the sacredness of the ballot and
will get down in the ditch to assist
in the election of an nn worthy of
ficial is an enemy to his country
and ought to be disfranchised. He
is no 'more fit to be heard than a
cat is to be shut up with a canary.
It is hard to find a more con
summate ass than the fellow whose
reason or conscientiousness will
allow him to act the hypocrite be
fore an intelligent public. While
euoh rny probably act on the pre
sumptionJbhat tlje public consists
of a gang df, ignoramuses, he only
succeeds in showing his villainy.
