During the it hellion belong to any Independent military command the answer to All those questions had to to satisfactory to the registrar or Tho applicant was denied registration. In consequence of the answer made to the first question Many of our Best citizens Wero not allowed to Register for every one of us that lived in the state before the War and that was of any standing in society filled some one of Tho numerous offices mentioned above. Load Oveis Oor is particularly grievous for it was an Unthankful office and which could not be declined except by Tho payment of a heavy Lino. Tho answers to the second question disfranchised even More than those to Trio first for in thin Section " Tho knights of the Whito Camolia had a Largo Lodge. What the organization was i know not but judging from Tho men that belonged to it for its existence ceased several years ago i do not think that it could a have tended in the language of Tho registrar " to the subversion of Taw and the answers to the remaining questions were by no Means explicit. Men could not remember and As one of Thorn said " i Ivo no memoranda to refresh my memory and cannot swear to the our people Are very much enraged yet hey Are a Law abiding people and will not do anything that May to construed into a violation of the Law of Tho land.

At our precinct out of 67 Whites 19 were denied registration at Tho adjoining precinct out of 122 Whites. 01 wore refused. In conclusion As representing Tho people for i have Boon requested to write you i say that to look to Tho sound common sense conservatism of Tho North for our help. To can do nothing of ourselves but accepting the Issue of the War and the amendments to the con a Stit ution in Good Faith we Only demand " equal rights and liberties to All men Bifora Tho Law even if they wore to unfortunate a a to have formerly been rebels. The feb autos of 1870�? thousands of Kames s1scbetly stricken Flom till lists 40,01 0 citizens denied Tiik i1allox. To Pic editor of Trio Tribune sin our attention has just Boon called to an article copied from the new York Olmos in which it is stated that " no Man is prevented now from voting anywhere in Tho United states 01 part in Tho _. u statement the Tribune has not stated the Case As strongly As the facts warrant. We feel that the people of the great North Are not informed As they should to and both the above statement and its denial would seem to indicate this in regard to this most interesting scrap of american history. Permit the undersigned of All political parties to Call your attention to the following facts. The late census of the United states shows that there Aro in Arkansas 102,000 round numbers males Over Tho Agu of 21 years. The Secretary of state reports that in registering these in 1870, 31.000 wore excluded while Only 60,000 Wero permitted to vote. Tho whole number of was therefore 46,000, nearly one half of Trio voting population. In this county out of 2,700 round numbers voters Only 1,882 wore permitted to vote the Board of review having in their closet stricken off St Oral Hundred names whom they had permitted to Register and without notice until election Day. Those " scratched voters on coming to the polls to vote wore told for the first time that they were stricken off the list. Thus it was that Only 71,000 wore registered a the slate out of 102,000, and Only 50,000 Wero permitted to vote. No Ono estimates the number Roallo disfranchised by Tho Constitution at More than 10,000 most of whom did not apply to Register the other 80,000 Wero " scratched " or arbitrarily refused As provided in Tho Law. You will understand from the above figures Why it was that Tho Senate committee who investigated the " Clayton frauds set with closed Dos and have not yet furnished Trio Public with the testimony taken before them. What have the people of Arkansas to Hope from an administration which sustains such an outrage upon the Dearest of american rights. Very respectfully etc., m. W. I Sniack n account of having taken in denying this the physic ii Laura fair As a simians called in the trial of. Of tar a a witnesses have submitted Bills Tor the approval of judge Riordan John ii. Ito eth m. H. Sand bus. Jons in easel j. H. So Ahks. J. Boitnett John Cahn Aix of. R. Blake Siovie join f. Wheeler b. P. Hackett thou. Maii Oum. Fort Smith ark., sept. 28,1872. From Trio new York world. West Virginia and abkan8as. In 1808 the total vote of West Virginia was 69,397, Grant carrying the state by a majority of 8,838. In 1870, when the Reform movement which began in Missouri Wab Over the country West Virginia oust a total vote of 55,607, Tho opposition to radicalism carrying the state by a majority of 2,123. By the United states census taken in this latter year the population of the state was 442,014, and at the Ordinary ratio of voters to population the total Voto should have been about 76,000 instead of 55.000 As it was. The occasion of this discrepancy was the infamous system of Difranchi Semont incorporated in the West Virginia Constitution at tie time the state was organized to assist Iho italic no party by introducing a reinforcement very much needed in Isco in the United slates Sci into. On the anti proscription is Victory of 18/ 0 the now legislature proceeded of do away with thin and As a result of this Stop to Lind the total Voto of the state at Tho election on the 22d of August last 81,402, a increase of some 25 000 Over that polled in 1870. It has often been asserted and As often denied by Badi eals that from 20,000 to 2s, 000 men were disfranchised in Wert Virginia but in View of these figures it can no longer to controverted that the Stato was hold so Long for the Radical party simply and solely by a sweeping and most iniquitous system of partisan . Happily that is a l Over now and West Virginia is Safe now intae uht Monou Boruni for Tho cause of honesty and Good government but it is As Well to put on record How Grant Roco Vod Tho electoral vote of this Tato in 1808, and especially is this in Point when to to member that Arkansas to Day is whore West Virginia a a year or so ago. No one doubts Tatark incas is on onto knows that its population by the Neumia of 1870 was 802,115 Whitig and 122,100 no Groos or about 00,000. Democratic and Wonso Rativo voters and 20,000 Iton Halican. That with this overwhelming preponderance of Trio White votes the state is As fully log rotted As South Carolina will nol seam wonderful Whan Tho system of proscription and which is in Force is considered. To have hold any Oll co before the War oven that of Road inspector or Justice of Tho Ponco to Havo furnished Piti Pilios to Tho confederacy to have voted against Tho reconstruction measures arc Hilo Blont to Dis Franchiso any portion and if Ufano in those or a Mboi Lebu Oiler like objections to the registrars arc allowed on Tho Broad general ground of their own knowledge or judgment to refuse registration. Farther still Whilo Tho weight of Tho fourteenth amendment Haw Boon lifted by act of Congress from All but specified Ola sob and while oven in its worst estate that measure Only debarred from of Hoo it is still in full Force in Arkansas so far ii to disqualify from voting All who Aro under my original terms. Owing to Torso causes the total Arkansas Voto which should to some 80,0 10, was at i he last election but c3,07. Those no Tho lowest a Sguros for it is stated on excellent authority that 81,00 por Sotir were disfranchised Iii 1870, but we Mil take it that the total in but 20,00 1. All Thybo Are of course disfranchised simply and solely born lao they oppose Grant. Could Thoy approach Tho ballot Box Lilov would Boll Tho democratic Voto to 64,000, and Bury out of bight tie Voto of 28,000 which now controls Tho slate Arkansaw a six doctoral Voloa would go against Grant and two to Moralino senators and four congressman Toiuo up to Washington Loaid in a purer management of Public affairs. To forbid this we have 20,000 Mon robbed of their votes. A ital Soldier on 1iukns1dk. Tho of Elk Onmin i nil Whin an Lleni Rill Lilii Hil or Tel a a and i Luisco is Tifik Tail thin from Joii.

If however to Wero to add to Tho saying the proviso that Tho pan should to handled by a or Coly and Trio sword by a Burnside All doubters would disappear. You and i urn Oral know full Well that while to wore in Tho Field lighting for the Union or.

That Long after to had sheathed our swords to kept up the fight and continued it until every object was Lor which oven Tho most ardent abolition it had Over prayed. We did not cease twin fight until Tho Union was restored and slavery abolished Tho Blacks Onfria Ichiho and All Ali or civil and political rights solemnly guaranteed to Thorn by amendments to Trio Causti tuition. And Yot general you Ivo Trio Hardihood of charging this Man with disloyalty and Are uttering this foolish charge in your ii Hume capacity As Tho representative of All the Union soldiers of the land. You say he has Boon guilty of a incl of Courtesy toward us. In my judgment any Man who eight years after to close of ii bloody civil War will Aak Al Dion b to assemble in convention with a View of controlling their action in political Matt Era is a demagogue unworthy of Courtesy at Tho hands of or.
