The oelorad people now have a
grand of^rtuni^ to have some re-
oognition on the Bepnblioao ticket
tbk iUl here that they never have
bad, or will have A>r many years to
corns. This is caused by tbe fltot
that this County was carried by
1,§M i^ority for the Antiprobibi-
tlon tickei.'Eiid victory
poesible this fldl. In sooriqg thb
victory the oolorod people oast, prac
tically, a solid vote for Anti-prohibi
tion, and from this issue we have a
combining of different ekmeata of
both parties Into a coalition party,
whose solo objeot is the defeat of
tbe Bourbon Democracy. Now this
party claims tbe negro voter ae its
fritbftal ally, because of hie vote o»
Anti^rohibition, aad rsUes on his
vote to ''arry b v County against
thsoigaaueo Demaevaey thk AH,
ibr without the negro votes tbs

voter must demand a colored repre.
