What may be termed, “fhe man with the fake votes.’’ is a man who thrusts himself upon the people, and makes way t( political prominence through e “sea of blood,’’ as Weudel Phillips would say. This man seeks office for hi* own seltish agrandizement, caring little for the intrest of the peoph from whom he gets his ftlce. He is a dangerous character and there are better men for hit place than he-he carries a pock et full of “fake votes”($f$$) and thinks as the Publish statesman said, “Every man has his price.’ He has a lot of allies or mooch ers, who do his trivial bidding 01 stealing-he is a eorruptionisl and an obstructionist-he is callec schrewd so long as he apparent, ly succeeds in robbing the state and society of their justice-t square deal. He purchases the counterfeii votes at reduced rates and sells them to the highest bidder foi cash-the office. When he gets the office he says I paid them for this office-I must have returns-I'm a speculator I’ll sell the office, the people aut the whole darn thing for cash. This is the man with the ‘faki votes” beware of him ere he i elected--forthe tree beareth frui o. its kind. Is the Negro Capable of Self-Govern ment. When will men become unprej udiced? We simply desire to say to the Illinois State Register and ( to Appleton’s Magazine, that is no more fare to compare the Neg. ! roes govenring statuses to that of Liberia, than it is fare to compare , the white man’s governing to ’ Bredhitt Co-Ky., or White Co. ; Mississippi. Why dont they speak of Mound Bayou, Miss., Abysinia Africa. ___ xxn _ . * IV i v> 4 4J IV 1 J J H 111 vrz X^XJ Hill ries not capable of self-govern merit, for instance the south part of Russia, Turkey and even mauy cities in Illinois and Miss ouri. government by mobs, fake pohticaus is not character tic of Liberia, even if they are deficient in other lines. England is the most capable counry for self-gov ernment on the globe- whenever a country cannot prevent mobs ana cruel torture, that country is not capable of self govern ment. Notice Decatur.
