themerltsW dements of the law sought
to be repealed, may Halm onr attention
for a few minutes. The' ftrst objeetlon
that I urgit to this law Is, that it tnnkes
an un warrantable distinction between the
oor inan and the man of wealth. The
drst section provides thnt "no man ahull
be peiinlttod to vote' unlets ho shall have
been an actual resident of the county for
thirty daya tiext preeodlng tho election,
and an actual resident of the township or
ward for twenty days next preceding the
election." Now; air, the inevitable effect
of this statute, is to disfranchise ike poor
tenant, under certain circumstances. : The
man of wealth is as a ship at anchor.
