opposition to the minority report 'the

maxim of equal rights and exact jus

"We also adhere to the principles ad

democrals, and we therefore condemn
the action of the republican party in
fostering the inteieet of the powerful

this county, miking the rich richer, and
the p or poorer, and it is the duty of
the people to rise in their might and
protest with their ballots to overthrow
this condition of affairs existing in oi r
