There has been a persistenl effort on

'Any one who will read the names of the
delegates will see that the larger part of
them are men who have been always mere

choice of the lay as well as of the official
members of the regular organization. After
the virulent speech of Senator Sumner
against him, iudeed, it is difficult to see how

Why? Because Col. Rogers voted
against the enforcement Act, which
Act gives the President power to put
down theiku klux and protect innocent
and defenseless people. Col. Rogers
expects the support of every ku klux
in the district. When he voted against
the passage of the enforcement Act,
he voted to license outrage and mur
der. He dared not vote for it ; had
he done so he would have sealed his
doom as the

may whip, murder, and drown, from
