Asto if a mint provi Tilori in the Radical Camp when it became known that Tho fact had been discovered that we e. Smith the Republican candidate for governor did not take out his naturalization papers and renounce Hia allegiance to the British Crewn until the year 1870. It appeared almost past belief that this Man bad been allowed to hold repeated offices under the member of the legislature and state and having been All the time a subject of her majesty the Queen of great Britain. But such is the fact the evidence where of is produced below. Our governor presents an interesting spectacle parading through the state Tell ing the dear people what a Patriot he is what sacrifices he Lias been willing to make Tor his beloved country what Tad men All democrats Wero for sympathizing with tie rebellion and peddling All sorts of political Buncombe of this sort during tie great War for the maintenance of the Union it will be remembered that Groat Britain claimed to occupy a Neutral position but As a matter of tact she sympathized most heartily with the South. As our of Victoria s subjects did Tho governor also occupy a position of neutrality in reference to the great Strug Gle for Tho did the governor purposely wait till he saw the Sura Triumph of Tho Union cause before he Termine to declare his intention of be coming a citizen of tha United states did his excellency adhere to his allegiance to Tho British government As a Protection against the draft unless the record s the supreme court the governor Gross injustice he no More illegible to the numerous state offices he had held to 1870, Koob Khan und it very much As if or. Smith was willing the thrust himself into the fat offices the which he was under no Legal obligation u serve and defend in War. The record of the Groerner is a most mortifying one and out sympathy we drop the matter for the present having heart to further pursue of humiliating subject except to present herewith the record evidence.

When Tho above was made Public thera was a buzzing in the Republican Camp. The eld fog state journal conies to the Rescue with the statement Liat or. Smith took out those papers when he went to Europe to avoid trouble and because he had no time to write to his father in Michigan and obtain the necessary Docu ments that when his father became a naturalized citizen it conferred the same Blessing on him to being a minor at the time. This is a o thin to Wash. His father obtaining 1m Papor swale William waa Yot a minor did affect him unless when he became 31 years of age he declared his intentions and aware allegiance to this government having been born on foreign soil.
