The president has returned to Wash

it is doubtful if they aro thoro now, and
nono of them havonsyct, wc beliovo, taken
up thoir residenco thero permanently for

electioneering for their chief,

to address the crowd, they will " boar

Theodore Tilton complains that his
paper, the 'Golden Age' is withhold by
the Grant post-masters and not distributed
to subscribers. Many othor nowspapers
which are opposed to Grant aro not dis
tributed to subscribers by the collar-wear
ers of the president. Thoy know thoir
duty too well and what is expected of
tbem, to fail in such mntters us this.
Over a week ago, tbo importation of
negro voters from Kentucky into Ohio

Fellow-Citizens- A presidential oloc-
tion necessarily brings into roview tbo
action of your government and the meas
ures for good or ill which affect the pros
perity ot tho country and tbo welfare of
its people. That is its significance, that
is its purpose. Not that A or B, who may
bo persons or very moderate capacity and
skill, and moro moderate worth, should bo
presiuent, or noiu some otner ouico; but
tbut you, the peoplo, should look over tho
wiiole grounu, seo what is right and what
is amies, and use your best elforts to cor
rect evils and to sustain what is good.
Now you aro awaro, as well as I am. that
our country has not beon reconciled and
regulated, and brought Into peace and
order, und that nearly eight years havo
elapsed sinco tho war ended, and peuco
and security ought to havo been attained
much sooner than this. Look ut the diffi
culties und obstaclos to bo uvercarno now.
First in point of viow and urgency, was
what wo call tho Ku-klux outrages of tbo
South. Certain persons, mainly open
rebels, and not a part rebel soldiers, con
spired together, formed thcmselvos into
companies or organizations of sorao kind,
and in hideous disguises paradod tho
country, I mean certain portions of tbo
Southorn country, abusing and mal
treating innocont, quiot people, mainly
black mon. I do not mean to sav
thoro wore not excuses and provocations
for thoir outragos; thoro woro; but I say
thoro is no justification for nny such con
duct as tliut. Tho pretonco generally was
what they call tho carpet-bag governments
wero aooininauio; it is probably true;
but that is no oxcubo for hauling quiot
pooplo out of their beds at midnight and
subjecting them to all mannor of indigni
ties. So that I said I did not recommend
particular or extreme measures, but I said
no doubt it is tho duty of tho states to
protoct their citizens respectively, and to
put down all lawlosaness. But suppose
thoy don't or can't or won't. Tho peoplo
aro ontitlod to protection, porfect protec
tion. If tbo sta'.e governments won't givo
it, thoro must bo a powor somowhoro that
will. Wo look aftor u man who is not moro
than balfn cltizon, whom a foreign govern
ment oppresses, and all tho powor of this
groat nation is put to work to protoct that
nan. Ho may, perhaps, huvo only do
dared bis intention to become n
citizon; but all the cannon and all tho
force wo can command is employed for his
protection. Our government must huvo
tbo power to protoct its peoplo at home,
as well as auroau. bo 1 1 aid u year ago
last spring, let tho president tell us what
sort of legislation ho needs to put down
those Ku-klux, and I will back him out to
tho full extent. lie said what ho neodod.
Laws woro passod. und after all thoy did
tho work. You huvo not heard of any se
rious Ku-klux outrages sinco these acts
wero passod. Sinco theso acts wero passod
a year and n half ago, nobody has heard
of any serious outrugo there, though thoro
uavo ueen trials in 0110 or two stutos, es
pecially in North Carolina, yot thoy aro
trials for otlemos committed two or throe
years ago, long beforo tho act wus passed.
So tho work was done. Tho Ku-klux con
iplracy was crushed out by act of congress,
and although those outrages occurred in a
very narrow district of territory, thoy dis
credited and damugod all tho Southorn
peoplo who may bo suipectod of any sym
pathy with those who made tho outruges.
That was one, buf still thero
remainod tho other element of dis
cord and discontent at tbo South, which
was called the carpet-bap thieves. When
thoy wont intotbe South wlthour armies,
a number of shrawd, cunning, unscrupu
lous men undertook to make themselves
rich out of tho povorty and misery of tho
vanquished South. Thoy made themselves
special leadors and champions of tho
black pooplo; then thoy organized Union
Leagues and othor socrctsocloties of which
the Ant etloct was to combine all tho
black men of tho South In a consolidated
phalanx, und then givo tbo direction of
tho real gov;riimuiit,nnd management of
tbeso black men to theso whito leadors
who wero called carpot-buggers. So,
then, they nominated those for office, and
they made thomselves governors and con
gressmen and secretaries soon, and thoy
commenced, through the machinery of
legislation, using simple ignorant negroes,

and thoy contrived to stoal thoso bonds,

and hatrod ; a general belief on tho part
of tho Southorn peoplo that wo of tbo
North sont thoso villains down thero to
rob them, and by enfranchising tho blacks,
and other motbods of reconstruction, wo
havo dollvored theso peoplo, bound hand
and foot, into tho clutches of thoso cor

local soir-govornmcnt; they havo got It,
and thoso docilo solf-govering authorities
aro tho robbers. What aro you going to
do about it? I will toll you of n caso.
In tho your 1808 tho ttato of Arkansas,
among otner states, was reconstructed un
dor our Kopubllcan legislation. Tbov
reconstructed a vory largo portion of hor
people, probably ono half of tho whito
pooplo being disfranchised, not allowed to
voto. Tho blacks and thoso they called
scalawags that Is tbo poor whites, whom
they regarded of no account voted, whllo
property-holding Whitos wore disfran
chised, and allowed no voico in tho ad
ministration of their government. So,
then, Powell Clayton, a Kansas man,
who caino in there as a com
mander of a regiment of our sol
diers, or olso following in their wake,
and ono of their crowd, was elected gov
ernor of tho state. Tbo constitution then
prescribed that ail whom congress had dis
franchised should bo denied the right to
vole. Well, congress proceeded very
proporly, though tardily, to tako off this
disfranchisement, so that ninoty-flvo or
ninety-nine, certainly ninety-five, out of
overy hundrod of thoso who had beon dis
franchised as robots woro ro-ontrancliuoJ
by congress. But tho darpot-oaggors said
no, congress has nothing to do with it.
Our stato constitution which wo framed
in 18CS disfranchised thoso men whom
congress bad then disfranchised. Now
congress takes offtlio bond; we do not;
wo aro going to kcop them tight. Thoy
appoint this Gov. Clayton, ho appoints
tho board of registration for ovory county,
and from tho decision of tbo board tbefo
is no appeal, and they put in tho
registry just whoever thoy pleaso.
I met thirty or forty citizens
of Arkansas in Louisville two or three
days ago, and they told mo that over
twelvo thousand of tho property-holders
and land-holders of Arkansas wero dis
franchised, kept off tbo register. Not
tbat tho laws require so many, but whero
tho laws didn't the registrars did. Thoy
had the power, and thoy would put on
such as thoy cboso and no more; and
when thoy found thoy woro not going to
get tho majority without striking off, thoy
would striko off so as to havo tbo voto
kept right. This is tho government
under which tho peoplo to-day aro living
thero. Tbo landholders ought to bo en
franchised, but thoy are disfranchised by
tbo carpet-bag government, which means
to cast tho electoral voto of tho state
against tbo people of tho state, by keeping
a largo part of tho peoplo disfranchised ;
and at tho lato Grant stato convention it
was solemnly resolved that none of these
persons disfranchised should be allowed to
vote this fall. After that they would sec
Let mo tell you how it operates. In tho
year 1870, they had thoir second Btato elec
tion under tho stato govcrnmont, not for
governor, but for legislature and congress,
l'owcl Clayton, tho governor of tho state,
and controller of all this election ma
chinery, appointor of registrars all over
tho state, was a candidate for United States
senator. It was -a safo thing to hot ho
would bo eloctod undor that system first
making all registrars, and then putting on
just as many votors as thoy saw tit. Sup
poso you havo a titlo to boon tho registry;
they will not put you on, and you cannot
get on, and thero is no remedy for it.
Thero is another hitch beyond that. Pow
ell Clayton, govornor, and bis subordin
ates, aro tho stato board of canvassers,
with absolute powor to reject whatever
votes they seo lit, and bring out such a re
sult as thoy choose, .-o, then, it appears
that when a legislature was choson it was
largely Ropublicun, yot Mr. Clayton had
not got control of it enough to elect him
for tho scnatot ho has to throw out
votes as prcsidont of tho board of
canvassers. Ho discards thoso votos
that ho pleaso.!, so as to bring in
tho candldato ho pleases. For instance, in
one county thoro was an anti-Cluyton
tickot ; ho throw tho votes out three
quarters of tho Republican vote ho
throws out those and brings in tho Dem
ocratic tickot rather than have tho Repub
lican tickot which was against him. So
he goes through liko this, und makos out a
Clayton majority which elects him to tho
senate. But in doing this, you understand
that you cannot reject tho votes cast for
ono olllco and admit tho votes cast by the
samo voters for another ollico. This is
porlectly plain. If you docido this poll Is
not a legal poll, you havo got to throw it
out for all purposos. So Mr. Gov. Clay
ton throws out tho votes of tho Republi
cans thero, becauto they wore olecting an
anti-Clayton tickot, and thereby defeats
xnomas uowies.luo Republican candidate,
and elects John Edwards, tho
Democratic candidate. John Edwards
comes forward with a cortiflcato as good

people generally don't. Ho goos on and
contests tho election, and with abundance
of testimony provos that thoso votes of
his, thrown out tor tho sako of electing
Clayton, woro not rigutiuiiy tnrown out,
and a committoo of tho bouso of repre
sentatives takes tho caso up, considers
from top to bottom, and says ununimouily,
without a dissenting voico, tho peoplo
olected Thos. Howies ; ho must havo tho
scat. So, on tho unanimous voto, it goes
up to the house, which by an ociuallv
unanimous voto says tbo samo thing, and
Bowlos is put in. It was not becuuso ho
was a Republican, bocauso thoy fought tbo
samo tiling in Texas, when thoy turned out

D. 0, Geodlngs, a Democrat, becauso ho
was elected by a good majority, and thoro
wus noi u uisceniing voice in tho commit
too or in tho house. So, then, you seo you
aro not resting on my story about Mr.
Clayton and his government. Horo is tho
unanimous decision of i committoo on
election and the house of representatives
mat jit. iiayion nau irauuuiently re
turned tho votos and had returned tho
man not elected, and rejected and ousted
tho man who was elected. This is not a
statoment, but 0 conclusion by tho highest
Well, gentleman, the federal court was
convened, or hold a session two or throo
montbs aftor tho outrago of which 1 toil
you by Clayton and bis board, and tho
grand Jury of that court oxamlnod in theso
iacts anu indictod l'owon uiayton and ins
confederates for this crime, and wo had a
district attornoy proparcd to put nun
right straight through. Mr. C. Acker
man, appointed by Gen. Grant as good a
Republican ns over llvod, was going to put
Mr. Clayton through, and tho stato prison
was boforo him. But now, Mr. Clayton
and his satolltca walked on to Washing
ton, and induced Gon. Grant to rcmovo
that righteous and faithful attornoy, put
ono of Clayton's tools in bis place, nnd that
was tho and of tho wholo thing all gono
to rack and ruin. Now Mr. Clayton goos
swimming into tho united stales sonatc,
instoad of Into tho stato prison.
You nro asked what tho government
has to do about it ? I will toll you. Thoy
all back thomselves right on tho powor at
Washington. Thov all cry out hurrah
for Grant I Givo him two terms; givo
mm two terms, if you liko; theso othor
follows aro dlsloval : thov aro ono-torm
men ; nut them out. Thoy say turn thom
out and put in theso men who will stand
by uiayton and his board, anu 11 is uono.
I want you to sco that this thing goos nil

You aro tho sustainers of theso iniquities,
If wo bad a government in Washington
which frowned upon theso ovils, that gov-
ornmont would stop alt this business in n
snort timo. Applause mo men wno
aro robbing South Carolina to-day would
bo on a dead raco out of that stato two
days aftor thoy bad heard that another
government was about to bo Installed at
Washington. Just as Bullock of Georgia
roslgncd and ran away, so these men
would all got out If thoy did not feel that
tho mighty arm of tho federal government
was outstretched for their defenso. It is
against this iniquity that wo fight. Tho
villains -who corrupt olectious in Arkansas
are all shouting for Grant shouting and
working for him, and they nro gaining
immunity for thoir crimes.
Follow-cltizons : I do not know what
will bo tho decision of tho peoplo in tho
contest now beforo us. bvorybody olso is
vory confident that what they wish will
bo tbo result. I only know that If tho
pooplo could look into those wicked gov
ernments at tno Soulli, and sen thom as
thoy are, thoy would not longor bo us
tulnod bv tho public sentiment of the
North. I know that, and 1 beliovo that
light is creeping in. Two-thirds of your
journals havo never told tho peoplo what
tho truth is ubout these carpot-bag villains.
Thoy suppress tho facts, they conceal the
iacts, and as a conscquonco tho poopio do
not understand ttiem. xo-day ttioy say,
What reconciliation do you want? They
say: Wo aro reconciled: what moro do
you want? Now I am not reconciled to
havo such robbers govorn tho stato; 1
want to bo reconciled. I want govern
ments that honest mon can afford to bo
reconciled to. I plead for reconciliation.
The Southern peoplo huvo greatly sinned,
in my judgment, und have greatly
suffered. I had a friend who went to
South Carolina and spent somo timo tbero
and then came back, 11 0 is a very zoalous
Republican, and ho said that ho had seen
many things bo did not liko. Ho said: I
saw a man there tbat when tho secession
began, was living in Paris on an allowance
from his futhor of $25,000 u yeur. Ho is
now clerk to a negro assessor in Charles
ton ut two dollars a day, and mlgbty glad
to get it. Now such things do tako place,
and I do think that the people have suf
fered a great deal. I think it is timo tbat
a generous hand was o&Utrotched to aid
them. I think it is time tho Northern
people should say: Country mon at tbo
South, wo have insisted that all tho blacks
shall bo enfranchised, and thoy have
been enfranchised. Now, then,
wo insist you sbull all bo enfranchised
likewise. There nro twenty thousand dis
franchised this day in Arkansas, and tho
only hope of carrying tbat stato for Grant
is to keep them disfranchised. That is
one of their purposes to keep thetn dis
franchisedand all over the stato there
are such iniquities as this, I think, hiding
from tho light. Now then, wo want tho
Northern peoplo to 'say to the South, to
thoso who have been our enemies : Let us
forget tho past, let us corno together on
one common platform; we wipo out all
disfranchisements, all proscriptions; stand
with us on 11 common platform of nation
ality, equal rights, equal law for all peo
pie, und let us all again tako hold and push
forward this mighty republic on its course
of greatness and prosperity. This is
what I think tho peoplo ought to
seo In this election, and make
tho Southern people feol that, though
thoy havo been very wrong, tbat we havo
forgotten all wrong und aro now pro
pared to tako hold with thom and to carry
forward tho destinies, to promoto tho ad
vance and greatness and glory of this
country as ono united, mutornal peoplo.
To that ond I labored, that end 1 seek,
and I do beliovo that this movoment tho
Cincinnati movement, of which I am un
oxpositor and symbol beforo you is cal
culated to produco that end, to sccuro
mat end. 1 am individually nothing, but
