THE SILVER STATE.
"ueMlay.September 7, 1880.
HOW FOREION-BOBN CITIZENS- ABE
TREATED IN RHODE ISLAND.
Recently there was a controversy be
tween two gentlemen of this town, on
(he subject of protection to foreign-born
citizens. One contended that the Dem?
ccratic party, while in power, did not
protect naturalized citizens who revis
ited their native land, w hile the other
:ited the case of Martin Koszta as proof
of the contrary- Now, we respectfully
direct the attention of these gentlemen,
-nd all others who care to investigate
ths subject, to the manner in which
foreign-boru citizens are treated at
Lome iu some of the States of the
Union.
Last year the United States Senate
appointed a committee to inquire and
lepcfrt to that body, concerning the
denial or abridgement of the right of
suffrage to citizens of the United States.
This committee was composed of Demo
crats and Republicans, and empowered
to take testimony under oath, and send
fit persona and papers. 1 Hey went,
among other places, to Rhode Island, a
f;tate which is now and has been Re
publican since that party was organ
ised, and where Democrats are in such
a hopeless minority that they are in no
manner responsible for the laws on the
statute books. The committee found,
«ild ao reported to Congress, that not
less than 15,000 foreign-born citizens
are disfranchised in that little State,
because they do uot own real estate.
Carl W. Ernst, an intelligent foreigu
horu citizen of the State, testified that
l't,500 foreign-born citizens, or 22 per
cent, of the whole number of citizens
in the State, are disfranchised.
A foreign-born soldier, who served as
major in tho Union army, testified that
be was denied tho right of suffrage be
cause he did not ov.n leal estate. A
native born citizen, white or black, can j
legister and vote at any election,
whether he owns real estate or not; but
the foreign-born citizen, even though
?;C fought in the Union army, is dis
francaijei enles3 he owns real pro
perty.
The committee embrace, in its report
to the benato, the sworn testimony of a
number of citizens to this effect.
Colonel James Morau, of Providence,
vho served three years as a commis
sioned officer in the war, and wa3 hon
orably discharged, swore that lie was
disfranchised because he is a naturalized
citizen and does not own real estate.
Horn Thomas Davis, also a resident
cf Providence, testified that he was
naturalised forty-five years ago. He
had been a manufacturing jeweler,
«*aed real estate ; was elected to the
Legislature several times and to Con
gress once, in 1833. He failed, lost hi3
property, and to-day is denied the right
of suffrage in the State where he has
resided over fifty years, and which he
once represented in Congress, because
h3 is a foreign born citizen, and does
not own real cstata.
Thesp are only a few of the many
uises reported by the Wallace Commit
tee to the Senate, where old residents
of Rhode Island aro not permitted to
vote because they are not native born
c.tizenSi
Tile total number of square miles in
Rhode Island is 1,034,—much less than
Some townships in this county. The
number of inhabitants to the square
mile, according te the local census taken
in 1875 is 244, yet unless its foreign
torn cit zens own 8R#4 worth of its
limited real estate, ho is treated like u
O.nuaoian, bo far as having a voice in
the selection of officers and law makers
to concerned. iho 20,COO voters of
lUiode Island are allowed two represen
tatives in Congress, while in the other
{States the average number of voters in
each Congressional District is at least
15,000, and in Connecticut in 1873 it
vos over 20,000. Florida, one of the
alleged bulldozed Southern States,
where it is charged men are kept away
fc.ou the polls by force, because they
arc Kepublicaua, Las like Khcdo Island
two members of Congress. In 1870
the population was 187,748, ami of
lUvude Island, 217,353. Yet in the
f evidential election of 1872 Florida
|mllud b3,190k while Rhodes Island
failed but 18.994, ami h» 1870 Florida
failed 20,000 more votes than Rhode
Islaudi.
£u*t«it nj4«tiange, to say the least,.
that those who have so much to say in
condemnation of any abridgement of
the suffrage in the Southern States by
educational or property qualifications
have no fault to find with Republican.
Rhode Island, where one armed and
one legged Union soldiers and citizens
of the United States are denied the
right of suffrage, because they were not
born ia the United States?
THE DIFFERENCE.
The Czar of all the Russias recently
journeyed from St. Petersburg to
Lividia. The railroad over which he
traveled was guarded night and day by
3,000 peasants and 40,000 soldiers. R.
B. Hayes, President of the United
States, though a majority ci the people
question his title to the office, travels
over thousauds of miles of railroad,
and there is not a soldier nor a peasant
required to watch the road or to guard
his person. The Autocrat of the Rus
sians claims that he rules by Divine
right, while the President of the United
States can hardly claim that he governs
by the will of the majority. This shows
that after all the efforts of Returning
Boards and Electoral Commissions to
subvert the will of the people there is
yet a vast difference between our glori
ous Republic and despotic Russia. Let
us see to it that those who are endeav
oring to model our institutions alter
the Russian pattern by centralizing
power in the hands of a few, are not
permitted to change our form of Gov
ernment.
