The Hillsboro Gazette's Denial of the
Election Frauds In the South.

Residence, audrt of republican votes Rre BuppresBed or
The hired man of the Highland News
devotes a column to us under a pretense of
an argument to sustain his assumption that
the nero is defrauded of hts rights in the
Southern States by means of tissue ballots
buMozing beius?, according to this per
son, played out, and tho latter being
adopted in preference by tha "llobel De
mocracy." Uur answer is that we don't be
lieve it, and the aforesaid hired man has
stated uo facts that iu any way reflects on
the questiou. Proof is what is needed, not
assumption. The matter cau easily be
provnn if it is true. OaiMe.
Ve have here the singular spectacle that
whilst Democrats iu the South admit that
Kepubliean negro votes in tho South are
either suppressed or not counted, Noitiiern
Democratic sheets, such as tho Gazette, de
ny tne fact and profess to believe nothing
of the kind is done. These apologists for
tho Solid South serve their masters well.
We don't expect the (lazrtU to make admis
sions of the trthfullness of the charge that
for ten years thousands of Republicans,
black and white, have beou prevented by
murder, fraud aud intiinidatiou from exor
rising their right of suffrage. To confess
it is to admit that they have elected their
President through murder and fraud. To
eonfesc it is to further admit that tho Dem
ocratic party could not by Buy possibility
carry enough Electoral votes to elect a Pres
ident withoat the South being made solid
for that party. The Oazett-e has littlo re
gard for its reputation for intelligence and
information when it asserts it don't believe
the negro is defrauded of his rights iu the
boutu by inciisii of tissue ballots, aud we
suppose it would say by any other means.
It may talk to the marines that way but old
sailors will not bo fooled, even among its
own readers. It is not doing the Gazette
any injustieo to say it knows better. We will
however give it proof enough before we get
through. . We do not expect to couvinco it
of tho error of its ways, for it is cloarly de
termined to defend tho Solid South, even
at the sacrifice of truth. Isow wo say to
the Gazette in all sincerely when it talks
about "fighting its own party" nnder any
circumstances it don't know what it is talk
ing about. As long as you can't see any
committed in Southern elections,
not counted when they are voted, you can
stomach any thing a Solid South under the
lead of its politicians may do. You are not
old enough to remember, but you ought to
have learned from the political history of
the country, that the Northern Democrats
did kick against the Solid South iu 18fitt,
but many of those who did long Bince re
pented in sack cloth an ashes.
Oh, no, you will not kick, one lassonlike
lSfiO is enough to last two or three genera
tions, if tha Democratic party lusts that
long. It may be very smart to say that the
negro is not deprived of any rights iu the
Southern states, for if they were the Ke
publiean party would not have permitted
aud that tbut party should liuvo fouud
menus to correct the wrongs long ago, and
by failing to do so dishonored its profes
sions and disgraced the nation. No one
knows better than the Gazette that all over

among the first to cry out this is not a
with a big N, but a confederation
ieerign tttateit. We do not expect to con
vince the Gazette but call attention of
readers of the News to some important
bearing on this Southern question.
Wo have space only this time for the
owing extract from the New York Tribune:
"The Northern States have east iu the
election 7,033. fi73 votes, and have
Electors. But 44 of those Electors represent
the Senatorial vote, two for each State.
reuiaiuing 2')1 are allotted to each State

like manner, 32 E eetors for tho sixteen
Slates, and the remainder, 121 m number,
are allotled according lo population.
, allotment, based upon
vears ago. was at the time rlaimed by the
Democrats to be an exceedingly ac urai
ind jut one, an 1 tho Southeru Dem icratf
particulaily justified it with great zeal
hownig that an allotment of less man izi
members and representative Electors to
that section would give it less strength than
its proportion of the actual population re
quired. Now the Northern Slates east

the Southern States have cast 2,'.fil.'.t20
votes, which is only S4,5U3 for each repre
If the Southern population had voteil as
fully as the Northern, there would have
been cast for 121 representative Electors
4,171.S:iH votes. It appears, therefore, that
1 200 '. 12 persons who should have voted
failed to vote, or to get their votes counted."
Here aro figures showing the poputarvote
for each representative Elector in ten of the
South Carolina 13.071
New Jersey 37.2H7
Now tho Southern Democrats particularly
justified tho allotment made npon tho cen
sus of four years ago, these figures showing
the vote for each repre sentativo Elector at
the recent election prove conclusively not
only great inequality in citizenship, hut
that thousands of votes in the five Southern
States were either suppressed or not count
ed. The census of 1880 shows that there
wore in these five Southern States 019,038
colored males over 21 years of age, and
only 623.3112 white males over 21 years of
age. These five States wonld have unques
tionably have gone Republican if a full and
fair vote had been polled, for in them are
thousands of while Republicans.
We have not the figures of the resent
Psesideutial eloction in these five Southern
States, but the total vote of 1S80 in them
was onlv 701,000, leaving 541,304 votes
either suppressed or not counted. It takes
only 13,071 votes in South Corolina to
choose an Eloetuor, when in Ohio 37,371
are required. In other words a Rebel Dem
ocrat in South Carolina, who fought four
long years to destroy tho Government, has
more than twico the political power in the
election of a President than a Highland
county Union soldier, wio fought the four
years to preserve the Government. This is
a reproach which tie Gazette by its apology
for the Solid South and defending and de
nying the frauds committed therein seeks
to fasten on patriotic citizens of Ohio and
the North. Iu the face of historic truths
clear as Holy Writ, tho Gazette has the au
dacity to assert that the colored people of
the Souf.1 have equal enjoyment with the
whites iu all their rights as citizens.
The Vote on the Extinction of Slavery,
We herewith print the division of the
House of Representatives on the question
of amending the Constitution so as to put
an end to Human Slavery in tho Uuited
States. The list below is correct according
to the record iu the Washington papers.
Had every member beeu present, the divis
ion would probably have been, yeas 107,
nays 75 making a full house of 182 num.
bers. It would have required 122 votes to
have made tho two-thirds necessary to carry
the measure. The 1 i Ht below should be pre.
served for reference, as there will be fre
ouent occasion to know who voted to "break
every yoke aud let the oppressed go free.
aud who, on the other hand, to perpetuate
the system. The proposition voted upon
was as follows :
Section 1. Neither slavery or involun
tary servitude, except as a punishment for
crime, whereof the party shall have been
duly convicted, shall exist iu the United
States, or any place suDject to ineir juris.
Sec. 2. Congress shall have power to en

Very Remarkable Recovery.

writes : "My wife Mas been almost helpless for
five years, so helpless that she cculd not turn
over in bed alone. She used two Bottles of

HED WATERS SALT RIVER.
December 6th, 1884.
Editobs Highland Ni'sk : I har bin
lookin fur yon to arrive here every day
sinco we got here, but as yon hav not come
I hav concluded that maybe yon haint goin
to come, and as my friends wants to let
their wimin at homo know hbw they are
gittiu nloiig here, I told 'em I wood write
to you an git you to publish it in the paper.
They could write letters to em but we hav
no male carrier from Hillsboro, cept White
Oak, aud no Express Company cept Sam
Sawyer, and sometimes ho forgits to put
the mail off. Well as I was goin to tell the
friends about the time we had after we left
homo I must begin. We all met at Tay
lorsville the nite the Demokruts had their
big flangd or whatever yon call it, to
make Rome preperashuns to go to hed
quarters (Salt River). We come to the
conklustin at last bein as it was so fur to go
by railroad (and some of us had no money
since we can't git at the treasury) that we
would git a wagon fur the old men as J.
W. Kibler, Wm. Ridings, B. F. Cox, John
Funk, Ac, to go iu, and the yuDg fellus
could walk. Alfred Roberts (the miller)
let us hav his log wagon as he woulden't
need it fur four years, aDd then we would
hav it to come back in. Mr. Roberts and
Jack Osborn didut go with ns that nite.
Mr. Roberts had to sell his hogs and Jack
wanted to dray a few plank over from the
depot. They arrived here on foot yester
day lookin a little weary from the effects of
the journey. They say that the price for
hogs is very low since the tariff was taken
off, and free trade is tuff on a man that
wurks by the day.
We wont from Taylorsville to Cleveland
and Hendricksville (which are close to
gether) via Blainville and Logansport.
lllaiuville aud Logansport are nice towns
for the boys couldut git anything to tie np
on. We are gitten a little tired of cookiu
for ourselves, but some of the old fellers
that wuz iu the war aiut forgot how to
cook yet, and the wimin will come as soon
as we git things cleaued up a little. We'd
a bin a little bad off if we hadn't a brung
aouiethin with us to eat, fur the Dimokrats
didn't leave auythmg but a good many
things with gray baeki, and whisky bottles
with nothing iu them. Pork is low tho and
thank fortune we can make our own salt.
I would hav liked to hav told you about the
big time the Dimekrats had that nite at
Taylorsvillo bnt we started before they
commenced. I may hear some time and
then I will let you know. Yours truly,
P. S. I gist got a letter from my .
Well she knows all about the nite at Tay
lorsville, for she is a Dimokrat and you
couldut hav tied her at home. As I am
tired of writing I will send you the letter
and you can see for yourself what she says.
She may kick about bavin her letter pub
lished but she can't reach me, and she will
be so glad to see me again I git back thut
she wont think of kickiu.
Mowaytown, Nov. 14th.
Dear 1 promised to let you knew
how every thing is going here. Wo had
tho best tune at laylorsville you ever
heard of. There was two wagons come
from Mowrytowu and they had three or
four torchlights aud two drutns. Jim
Wever beat the tenor drum. They had a
musket aud Oh, the biggest cannon. They
pulled the cannon around with a little rope
or twine string I dont kuow which, but I
kuow yon couldn't hardly tell it from the
muBket when it went off. They marched
np aud down through town three or four
times and they had seven torches. Chris
D was so happy that he handed a paper
with the picture of a rooster on it, aud she
said, "thank you, I am not a chicken of
that kind." This is all this time.
