abundant evidence at hand from every section of the country,
that the Negro has an adequate appreciation of the function
of the ballot. It is therefore a safe conclusion that he will not
use his ballot in this campaign to any appreciable extent in
response to the thrills of sentiment, but with grim visage and

and most helpful agencies in the government of any nation,
ancient or modern.
    In the broadest sense, the Negro citizen was born in the
Republican house, as the Republican party was born in the
Negro Slave's Cabin; the slave whose hopes and fears were
