It having been represented by the

their respectivo States, depriving
them of the right of suffrage; for the
purpose of mooting this allegation
and giving it a positive denial, it is
resolved by the Central Committee of
tho Democratic party of Georgia,
representing the people of tho State,
that the charge is unequivocally false;
and for tho evidence that they do not
desire tho re-establishing of slavery,
aud could not effect it if they would,
they refer to the fact that this State
has ratified tho amendment to thc
Constitution of tho United States
forever abolishing slavery and in?
voluntary servitude, except for crime,
whereof tho party shall bo legally
convicted. That wo reiterate the
positions taken by this Committee
