and Congressman Frank O Lowden
The site of the debate in Freeport aU
ready is marked by a suitable memo
rial erected by the Freeport Womens

Roosevelt in 1903 It was at Freeport
that Lincoln submitted his famous
question No 2 to Douglas namely
Can the people of a United States
territory in any lawful way against
the wishes of any citizen of tfie Unit
ecLJStates ejtcluda > slaveryjjfjmgglt
limits prior to the formation or
state constitution
To which Douglas replied It mat
ters not what the supreme court may
hereafter decide as to the abstract
question whether slavery may ormay
not go into a territory under the con
stitution The people have the lawful
means to introduce or exclude it as
they please for the reason that slav
ery cannot exist a day or an hour any
where unless it is supported by local
police regulations

on an elaborate scale A local organi

bowlder some two years ago A num
ber of people are still living in Quincy
