Horace Greeley was notoriously in
favor of civil rights, social equality
of the races and mixed schools.
The Democrats nominated him as
their candidate for President. He
never retracted a word he said on
the above subject, and tho Demo
crats voted for him almost to a man.
Mr. Sumner, a renegade Repub
lican, co-operated with the Demo
cratic party, and heartily assisted
in the effort to elect Mr. Greeley
President, and introduced the civil
rights bill, which no Republican
member from North Carolina voted
for, and which is opposed by every
prominent Republican in the State.
And yet tho Democrats charge
that the civil rights measure is a
part of the Republican platform.
Tim Leo has squandered sixty

the rallying cry of the patriots of

In view of these undeniable facts
it is a task rather beyond the pow

to persuade the people of the First
