Crowds of negroes, they came in
droves, in "w agons, on muk.* and
on foot ir crowds," and yet out of
a township with at least a few
white men "wet." and 'Jsa' negro
votes, after all this registering of
negroes by wet employers, wo hav-?
wet votes countetl out after tho
Hunter Township had 2nl white*
voters registered and 2$3 colored
registered making 4-T registered
voters. But "197 votos wore polled.
Whore was tho falling otr, att i
what the cause? Assuming then
that all tho whites voted and al!
went "dry," you have had :\t
least It'd negro votes. Again as.
suming that tn? w hite man voted
"wet" at your box, y.*0 have the ne

Now in the face of all this you
get up and eli argo the opposition
with mauipilating tho negroes, and
just after the election say that the

is ahou: as near the truth as tho

state ho does hot resido in Hunter,

longs." So says TitK Ar?vr.t;Tisrr.,
and hero is what Mr Hemphilt th"
State Senator Irom Abbovillo ha*
to say ah? ?ut it :
"Who i- responsible tor tho ne

< We believe that ?ince tho negro
; iras a factor, both side? have Used
J him, and perhaps taken uuwarran
j ted means lo secure votes, but "lot
I thc blame rest where it bolong?."
; If the prohibitions of (Tinton deny
, that any intimidation, promises or
throats were used, if only the mer
i chants ot that town believe th..t
. every man voted according to
choice, and that every man voted
who th sired, thi- will do Infinitely
moro toward- "denouncing in de
"serving term- such unwarranted
"attack upon its character" than a
bald denial of the Enterprise.
Wo desire to misrepresent noth
ing. Hut endeavor to, speak tho
truth. Don't lay all thc blame of
tho negro votes on those who rofu*
e?l to swallow such a dose as tho
Murry Hill w ith all its objection
