COUNTY TICKET, DEMOCRATIC ENQUIRER
Thi Democratic Enquirer should
be read by every voter in Vinton county
during the prosent campaign, m w -lieve
that the most extended oiroulation
of sound Demooratio papera will greatly
aid in the triumph ot corrcot principles,
at the coming election, we offer The

than ten, Payments to b made in
We offoer the paper at these unusually
low rates with the view of bringing it
within the reach of all during the cam
paign, ana we hope the offer will be re
sponded to eenerall? all over the county.
A very trifling effort on the part of some
of our friends in each township or
neighborhood would secure a large ad

deal of good. The pending campaign is

most important one me question oi

Let our able Demoorata throughout the
county make up a fund of from one to
five dollars or more in each township,
and distribute copies of the paper to vo
ters who take no paper and who will read.
By eo doing, the people can be edaoated

Tit Meeting on Saturday,
Declined. William Mark, Esq.,
tho candidate for Prosecuting Attor
ney on tho ticket which a few of the
friends of ' Manhood Suffrage" put in
nomination last Monday week, has do
clined. He says he wants no office.
We aro informed that Sylvanus Bart
lett, candidate for Surveyor, on tho
same ticket, has also declined. What
is the matter ? Are these men opposed
to the Proposed Amendment to tho
Constitution giving negroes tho right
to vote and hold office? We hope so
Theso gentlemen who have declined
well know that one of the principa,
planks in the platform made by the
Radicals, (not by the poor, honest, la
boring people,) at a State Convention
hold at Columbus, a few weeks ago,
a declaration in, favor of Negro Suff
rage. Many Republicans in Vinton
county declare that they will not vote
for tho proposed amendmont, but
think they will voto tho ticket nomin
ated by tha leaders. :2tow tho party
and all the candidates on tho State
ticket, and all the candidates on the
County ticket, (if they do not dcclino,)
aro pledged in favor of Negro Suffrage.
For instance, Jons Fee, candidate for
Representative in this county, is
pledged in favor of Negro Suffrage,
and in favor of Ben Wadjs for office
We can't see how any man who is
opposed to Negro Suffrage can support
any man on tho Radical ticket and
claim to bo consistent. Supposo that
tho Amendment is defeated and tho
Radicals elect a majority to the Legis
lature Mr. Sumner, tho leading Rad
ical in tho New England States, at tho
session of Congress held last month,
proposed an amendment to tho Con
stitution of tho United States giving
Negroes the right to vote in defiance
of State law. This amendment will
undoubtedly bo submitted to the sev
eral Stato Legislatures, during the
next winter, for ratification; and, if
the Radicals have a majority in our
next Legislature, they will of course
ratify the proposed amendment of
Sumner in defiance of the will of the
people. Of course, John Fee, the
Radical candidate for Representative
in this county, if elected, would voto
in favor of the amendment proposed
by Congress, if the amendment to our
Stato Constitution is defeated, and
thus defeat the will of the people. If
the Republicans of Vinton county are
sincere in their opposition to this
amendment, they . must voto against
all the endidates on tho Radical tick
Wo aro pleased to announce that
there are two men in Vinton county
who docline to run thb risk of defeat
in this campaign, along with the Sam
bo and Jimbo Amendment. Who will
bo a martyr? '
