Vance Attempts to Rally the Ku
The News of this city reports that
Gov. Vance said at Newton, Catawba
county, on the 17th, that' he was in
formed by Reverdy Johnson, that the
U. S. Supreme Court had declared the
Ku Klux law unconstitutional in one
of the South Carolina cases. This de
claration is false, and was made for the
purpose of rallying the Ku Klux of
Catawba and other Western counties.
Vance and his cohorts of treason and
Ku Kluxism know they are beat

great ally the Ku Klux hence

These Indictments reach all over the
counties where the Ku Klux flourish
ed. Capiases have been issued and
these men will be arrested and held
for trial. Republicans are no longer
afraid of Ku Klux. They, have sub
mitted to the outrages of disguised
sassins in the interest of the Democratic
party, until forbearance . has ceased to
be a virtue. From -this time, the Re
publicans of this State are determined
to maintain their freedom. They will
not commit a breach of the peace, but
they will defend themselves whenever
attacked, let the consequences be what
they may. Turner and Vance would
like to have the Ku Kl ox- ride the
night before the election, but they dare
not do it Members of . the Klan are
known to the officers of the law, and
the first move that is made, will be I
squelched by filling the jails with ev-
erv man eneaffed in violating the law.
. Vance will try to rally hia Kri Klux
friends wherever he speaks, but trying
willbe all. The poor wool hat boys
will no longer be made tools of to ad-
vance the Interests of the old slave oli-
garchy. They were deceived into the
war and into the Ku Klux Klan ; but
they have turned their backs upon
Vance and his cohorts, and will be
freemen hereafter. f

stumping the State in the interest of
honesty and reform. .

The most infamous perversion of

praced by the , Democratic Ku Klux
press : of. tbis State. ; They profess to
publish the correspondence which their
candidate sought with ' Senator Pool,
but ; suppress the SeriatorV last 'letter,
bntirely. 'fThis is "a confessionof the
terrible rebuke ana.tliscomfture which"
Swfpson's caudidto.recei.yejl at tlie
hands of the Senator. But was there

important letter is left out? But that
is done m Ins own interest, and seems,
doubtless, very comely in his eyes."
This ' mean, trick smells so! strongly

Spocketed 'the money which j-hp. stole
from the State Treasury" under hills

much in the same style that the Int

by those who advocate thcxitaetioii ofi

We know all about the card, but
the Judge opposed the" adoption of the

influence to prevent the people from

highly elated when Judge Brooks de
cided that tho Homestead was uncon
stitutional so far as old debts were eon-.
cerned, and congratulated the Judge
on a return to good old times. Again :
The Judge was counsel in a case which
involved the constitutionality of the
Homestead. I The Homestead was de-"
clared retrospective t and the Judgo.Iast

he endeavored to raise money to carry
the case to tie U. S. Supreme Court

in favor of a Homestead, but he bus
never said that he sustains .the Home

Will he write a card and say that he
