In te Douglas-Lincoln conteat 'of
1 856, the qjuestion of slavery and the,
Donstitutional view *of State-Rights
regarding domestic institutions was
aho promuinent topic of both orators.
"I hold that this Government Wha
made on the white basis, by white
men, for the benefit of white meni
rind their posterity forever, and that
it should 1)e adnmiistered by white
men anid none others. I do not be;.
liove that thd6 Almighty made the,
negro capable of self-government."~
Lincoln, far from denying this
proposition, wont, if anything, a bow
shot beyond the "Little Giant" in
alflirming it. Here is his own Ian
"I am not, nor ever have been, i
favor of making voter's or jurors of
negroes, nor of qualifying them to
hold oflice, nor intermarrying them
with white people ; and I will say
in addition to tis, that there is a
physical difference between the black
and white race, which, I-believe, will
forever forbid the two raoes lving
together on terms of soci~l and
politicalI equality. And inasmruch
