Inlf75lhe "White league" made a
raid on the Republican r.f Yazoo county,

those killed was a memler of the legisla

and that lie converted to his own use. the

replied by tlii card to l lie public :

To this Dixon replied In a card that

It will be noticed that Dixon does not
deny the killing of., Patterson, but charges
that he had tlie proof that the money was
employed In the'eahse ot the democratic

If the Republicans in Maine had been
defeated by the liision ticket, it would not
have been a Democratic victory. Plaisted,
the fusion candidate for Governor, was
originally a Republican and became a
Grecnbacker. He was placed in nomina
tion by a Greenbak Convention, and then
endorsed" by a Democratic State Con
vention. Had he succeeded It would have
been a Greenback victory and not a Dem

The great frauds committed in the South
ern States In taking the recent census are
so glaring, that a man must have an ada
mantine cheek wIk dare deny them. In
South Carolina where an increase of forty"
three per cent. In the population Is claimed
in the last ten years, the decrease in wealth
according to the same census, is. if any
thing, more remarkable than the increase of
population. During the past ten years the
value of land is represented as having de
preciated more than twenty-three millions
ot dollars, and the number of huiMings
is less by 2.610. than ten year ago.
By the official report ot the Amlitor
of State, innd recently, the taxable
value of property in the State is less
largely iW-rensed. But these unblushing
census takers, under the direction and by
order, doubtless, of the shot -51m bosses.
ask us to believe that., although ten years
ago there were but 705.GOG people; living
in 124.545 houses, there are now 90G.S24
people living in 121.031 hones ! Does any
sensible man believe that men accumulate
wealth and decay in that manner ?
