How long would such a thlng be tolerated Ín any northeru state? Tlie northern "tloody sliirt" must not wave, bilt let the republicn8 of the south attenipt to exercise tlieir rijflits hs American citizens, and tlie southern bloody shirt waves quickly, and it is on the backs of southern repúblicans mide red by tlieir own blood. It ís of sncti ontrages, as the above figures conclusively prove that the nortli justly complains. Let the southern states have rfpre9entation according to tlie votes polled, with a tree ballot and a f:iir count, and there will be no nnrth and no south in tliia country. Until time there will be.
