AVe would call tbe attention of

If you want peace, what are you
running yonr candidate on his mili
tary merits for.
If you want impartial suffrage
"what does your platform . say one
suffrage XortU and another South
If you mean equal rights, why
one currency for capital and aaoth
or lor labor f
Is it impartial suffrage to enfran
chise thttblack and diufrauchise tho
white man? , -If
the Negroes can vote of them
selves, why fay the .Bureau to
, , If you mown to wnoraiite, why
lidn t yon begin three years ago I
It reconstruction is a success,
whj- isn't the army withdrawn?
If you want peaco, what arc you
arming the n-egTOcs for?
As the public debt statement for
July makes tho total debt $2.C33,-
88,756, how do you think the poor
laboring. men can pay it without
going half naked and starving their
wives and children ?
What do you think the poor men
think of Wilson, )'our candidato for
Congress, Who owns eighty, thou
sand dollars in bonds and pays no
taxes on them and receives interest
on them in cold ?
Don't you think it is high time
for every poor man to go and vote
against all tho congressional robbers
a id those on the ticket with them
irom Grant down to lliggins ?
Do you think laboring men can
conveniently give about half of
their hard oarnings to bondholders
and Internal - tax gathers much
loncrer? . .
Why don't you tell tho people

men of this country, and to aid the
conspirators now destroying the
Government. Don't vote for them

The Radicals dare not ero

the Revolutionary policy of
their Rump Congress; hence
the necessity of keeping quiet.
Vote thenr down 1 Thev
know they have been robbing

terrible and everlasting Law, (called tbt

miserable and expensive bumbug) bat
been spending a few days in Vinton coun

oeive ten thousand dollar for sitting In

the present distressing system of internal
reveuue taxation; and to vote for him bo
be can see (bat the prices of coffee, tea,
sngar, molasses, muslin, &o., are kept so
high that poor people have to do without.
He visited a number of the townships, and
around with hira went that lenjned, that
terrible, that sober, that immortal, that
wonderful, that "higb raornI'iJea" man
Homer (Cieero) Jones who s'umped the
county last fall in favor of little young
niggers attending Ibe schools with white
children and in favor of niggers voting
and being candidates for State Senator
like himsel1; wbo lovesto aeo poor women
pay the distressing tixes on every paper
of pins, spool of tfiread, jnri of muslin
and calico, box of matches, ounce of sugar
tea, cofl'ee, spice, &c. and who always ma
lioionsly and wilfully misrepresents every
thing to poor men. Both are well qualifi
ed for the business in which they are en
gaged. On Wednesday evening of last
week they were billed to apeak at Zil.-ski.
At the appointed time the two celebrated
Grab Tax Mongrels mounted the Hotel
steps, and wore soon surrounded by not
less than 130 Copperheads. Jones arose
first, and commenced speaking a, pretly
little piece. In a few minutes, however,
he began to misrepresent the bond ques
tion, when one Copperhead arose and
walked off a few steps, aud said: "Come
on, Copperheads " The one hundred and
fifty Copperheads, who were at this time
completely disgusted nith his foolish
twaddle about bonds and taxation, arose
and silently departed leaving Jones and
the Eighty thousand dollars in bonds
drawing inteiest in gold almost alone.
Poor Jones I Bioh Bondsl Bright shining
gold interest How they did feel I Bow
they did twist and squirm I They had
been repudiated by tbe poor laboring men,
who are tired of toiling all day to pay
interest on bonds 1 Jones apologized, and
Wilson said he would study the Iiond
question and would probably return in
September and make a speech I The other
meetings they spoke pieces at were alintly
attended, i t
Bleeding. Last year the
Mongrels of Connecticut bled
Jewell, their nominee for Gov
ernor, of onlj $74,000, telling
him all through the campaign,
that money would elect him
but he. was badly defeated.
The honest Radicals of Vin
ton county tried to get a large
amount of money out of Hon.
John Fee, telling hira money
would elect him, but Mr, Fee
was to isharp for the hungry
fellows "on money matters
riot but little was' extracted
from him. This year the
Raddies are bleeding Wilson,
who' owns : $80,000 worth' of
bonds, to, the tune of a thou
sand. 'Poor "Wilson I It is
hard to be a Rad I It costs
much money to get the poor
people who are worn down
with Internal revenue taxa
tion to vote to keep all they
eat, " drink and wear at high
prices ! at prices so high one
half the people can't get what
their families want !
