earlier days It was here that you first saw the light of day and at your mothers knee was taught to say your evening prayers and as you grew older you could be seen driv ing the cows to the milking gap carry ing tuel from the woodyard to the old porch hear the roaring of the booming fire in the family room of the old homestead and where you with fond par ents sat around the fireplace and talk ed of work for the cpming morrow Those were days in which you were eating your white bread though per haps many of you were thinking of the Eldorado inducements offered young men in the far West Years came on and with them a disposition to better your condition financially grew stronger and one day you bade mother and father farewell and took your depart ure for what you conceived for green er fields We can see the old mother and father now as they stood at the yardgate after fondly carressmg you watching intently as you wended your way from the old homestead to take a public conveyance to some distant state Letters were exchanged and as you would detail the advantages of the new country and how you were prospering mother and fathers hearts were made glad and as they knelt in their evening prayers fervent petitions went to God for the safe return of their loved ones You are here this week and how gladly we welcome you There have been many changes since you departed but the hospitality of the county of your nativity remains tlfa same The latch string is on the outside of every door and loved ones arid friends of the days of Auldi Lang- Syne with open arms are ready to receive you We say there have been many changes a statement you will readily verify when you take a ride over the old town and county Friends and loved ones have long since gone to the celestialcitynot dead but watch ing and waiting for your coming You are here and we would be glad if your stay could be prolonged Have you not after even a year even a months absence returned to the same place found the same groups reassembledand yet sighed to your self But where is the charm that once breathed from the spot and once smiled from the faces Eternity itself can not restore the loss struck from the minute Are you happy in the spot on which you tarry with the persons whose voices are now melodious to your ear beware of parting or if part you must say not in insolent defi nance to Time and Destiny what mat ters we shall soon meet again DIED IN TEXAS Mrs Mary C Payne a sister of Mrs F R Vyinfrey this place died in Decatur Texas on May the 20th She was 74 years old and was born

ComniisVsioner of agriculture to offer himself again as a candidate for a State office that after mature consideration he has decided to become a candidate for Sec retary of State It certainly looks like he has won for himself the backing of the farmers of Kentucky for whatever he may seek and in recognition of hisV efforts in their behalf since his election as State Commissioner thousands y of them have urged him to offer for another State office since the Constitu tion makes him ineligible for reelection Mr Vreeland has accomplished something in an office that was created for the farmers but which had been ofVvery little benefit to them and it is s refreshing to the Democrats of Ken 4tucky when they find public servants who deVote all their time and thought i to fulfilling the duties of their office with energy and intelligence r Mr Vreeland is the youngest of the present State officials and until the last State election had never been a candidate for office Although it was his first appearance he won his nomi nation for Commissioner of Agriculture by a majority of 26000 next to the largest majority received by any candi date in the State primary although opposed by two prominent candidates who made most vigorous campaigns Mr Vreeland has a personal acquaintance probably not surpassed by any other young man in Kentucky extending J to scores and hundreds in everyone of the 119 counties in Kentucky H is a brother of John W Vreeland pub Hg usher of the Farmers Home Journal 1 1and at the head of the Demoratic Executive Committee in Louisville and 4 Jefferson county and of Graham VreeIland managing editor of the Courie Journal who for ten years was the Legislature correspondent of the Ct 1 rierJournal at Frankfort 4 The Democratic nominations for State officers

ADAIR COUNTY NEWS COLUMBIA KY JUNE 20 19060 GEN FRANK LWOLFORD 1The Grand Old Hero has a Record A Priceless Heritage to = His Descendants INTERESTING HISTORY OF WAR AND PEACE The following history of the life and character of Gen Wol ford and his correspondence with President Lincoln were first pub lished in October 1881 At that time Gen Wolford was a candi date for the Democratic nomina tion for Clerk of the Court of Ap peals We reproduce it for the benefit of the home comers many of Whom perhaps never read it haveGelapsed since the war of States closed Many of the leaders and- heros of those bloody days have passed from the scene of action some yet remain to tell of the trying events now a part of a great history in which they par ticipated A new generation has risen up who can read without passion and with less of preju dice the records of the times that f tried the souls of men and wo men of our land In Kentucky during the wart no name was more familiar to the j people than that of Col Frank Wolford the gallant leader of the first regiment of Kentucky Caval ry It has been said no battle was fought from the Potomac to the Mississippi river that at least some of Wolfords Cavalry did not take part in it However that may be it is known and rr was a recognized fact that they were a gallant and active body omen f and led the advance in many a hotlycontested field Wolford was justly distinguished- for his bravery and magnanimity He served his country because v the loved it and from a desire to preserve and perpetuate its free institutions Although clothed with great wer at times commanding a gade and often a division he fas never known to invade the ihts of the private citizen Arms with him never silenced the laws but private property and persol liberty were always secure to the extent of his authority He was born September 2nd 1817 and like many of the sturdy selfmade men of our country was denied many of the advantages in securing an education which are now the common property of all Yet adverse circumstances could not conquer his en ergy or quench the intellectual1 fires that burned within him He overcame them by steady purpose and more than thirtysix years ago with a mind store d Englisth education he commenced the I study and soon after the practice of law t 3 He raised a company of men l for service in the Mexican war t but the puota of troops being full St his company was not accepted r J h f Be thereupon enlisted as a pri t J 1 crate sand was present and en nteretandBvNJf r 2sr closed he returned to his home at Liberty in Casey county and re profesI sion years ago removed to Columbia Adair county his native county for the purpose especially of enjoying the superior opportunities afforded for the education of his childrenHe a little farn near town and his residence is a plain comfortable log house built after the old style He is now sixtyfour years of age yet his eye is undimmed and his natural force is not a whit abated His youngest child is about four months old Known in his younger days as one of the finest natural orators in the State he is today a match on the stump or before a jury with the most gifted and trained speakers in our knowledge reminding one in the sublimity of his language when warmed up and in the fiery zeal to what we can imagine Patrick Henry was No man in Southern Kentucky- can draw a larger crowd than he and no one is listened to by the people with more evident relish for he is always fresh racy and originalHis record is a part of his tory We will not dwell upon that but there is an unwritten history of his treatment by the Federal authorities that may not be uninteresting It will serve to show some of the dangers which threatened free speech and personal liberty at that time No man can charge that Wolford has been a negative character When the call was made for troops by President Lincoln the Governor of Kentucky refused to respond Mr Crittenden and other distinguished men took ground in favor of neutrality TOplford favored no middle ground but before taking action he wrote to President Lincoln for a pledge as to the purposes of the war and policy upon which it was to be conducted He received a written assurance that it was merely to maintain the rightful authority of the Government and should be waged in no other spirit of conquest or subjugation and that the rights of the States should be ctedIIWith this understanding and impressed by a warm love of country Wolford appealed to the people and in a little while had a regiment of cavalry in the field In battle he led the advance and in retreat was in thr arHe was wounded on eight OCcasIons and some of his wounds are yet unhea1edandcausehigl daily suffering Soon after Mr Lincoln issued his emancipation proclamation a meeting of Kentucky officers was called at Lebanon yto consider what should be ione Men were there who now teUpYblgh seats in theRpublian sancta Jrv ft lei FAMOUS OLD VETERAN OF ADAIR ary Wolford did not arrive Ul1i til late and before his arrival a paper had been preparedand signed by those present agreeing to tender their resignations When is was presented to Wol ford he refused to sign it and opposed it giving as a reason that it would be unjust men who had volunteered underI them and for his part he could not desert the private soldier whom he had induced to enter the ser vice The paper was reconsider ed and burned A large con course of people being present in town Wolford made a speech patriotic in all its utterances in which he sharply criticised the emancipation and confiscation policy as in violation of the Con stitution and of the repeated pledge of the authorities Soon after this he was ordered to the front with his command was engaged in a number of bat tles commanding a division and was in the siege of Knoxville- It was while in Tennessee that he received a circular order from superior officer directing a detail of two regiments to confiscate rebel property and recruit ne groes for a battery at Knoxuille He indorsed upon the order that he was in the army to fight not to steal and that he would have nothing to do with it In a short time he was ordered back to Ken tucky to recruit and refit his commandIn 1864 he was pre sented by the Union men of Fay ette connty with a very fine sword a pair of pistols and a pair of spurs This was the begin ningof his troubles with the Government authorities The speech of presentation was an ex treme speech that favored th prosecution of the war in a spirit of revenge and for conquest When the orator had concluded tendered Wolford epre land he declined to accept them He was then called upon to giveI his own views which he did viewing with the boldness of a soldier and freeman the course of those who were attempting pervert a war for the Union into a war for plunder At jhe i con clusion ofhis speech the crowd by a rising vote declared that h was right and that he should ac cept the sword etc which he did VA 1 I Forihifcspeechv he was QOJ 4 i ivr fr7L tii t orderedIreport to at ville which he did without delay When he appeared before Grant he informed him that he was under arrest and asked that he might have a speedy trial Grant told him he knew nothing about it offered him a drink which he refusedand after telegraphing to the President sent him to Gen Schofield at Knoxville Here chargesJhim This request was not acceded to but he was ordered back to Kentucky and on his return found an order from the President dismissing him from the service He was then nominated by the Kentucky State Convention Elec tor for the State at large on the McClellan and Pendleton Presi dential ticket and also received a commission from Gov Bramlette authorizing him to raise a regiment of six months troops He immediately commenced a canvass of the State partly to raise troops under this commis sion and partly to discuss the questions at issue between the political parties He succeeded in raising the regiment and up on arriving at Lebanon for the purpose of mustering them into the service he was met by an of ficer of United States army with an order for his arrest This resulted in the disbanding of the men and their return home Wolford was carried di rectly to Washington in chains and being brought into the pres ence of Secretary Stanton at the War Department Stanton in quired who he was Being told he was Col Frank Wolford of knoweby whose authority he was man acled He ordered the immedi ate removal of the irons and di seecured a room at the Willard Ha tel

friendwas told by Wo ford that he was there a prisoner he had seen the Presidents picture and did not care to see him but if the President wished to see him he could call around Van Buren at first refused to carry such a message but finally consented and the next day an invitation was received from the President inviting Col Wolford to call and see the President with Senators Powell Davis and oth ers The invitation was accepted and Wolford was invited to sev himIAs a result of it all the Presi dent ordered Wolford back to Louisville upon his written parole not to leave the city and promis ing him a speedy trial but insist ing that he should be tried by a military commission Wolford objected to this as an illegal pre cedure but agreed to be tried in anyway so as to get through with it It was in one of these inter views that he demanded of the President the charges upon which he was arrested The President informed him that he was charged with saying in his speeches that the government of the United States was being crucified be tween two thieves the authorities at Richmond and at Washington City Wolford immediately re sponded if that was all although he did not remember having used the language as stated he would plead guilty and was ready for trial Gov Powell thereupon said Col with your permission I will volunteer to defend you and make good the charge- A short time after Col Wol fords return to Louisville under parole he received the following communications which speak for themselvesEXECUTIVE MANSION WASHINGTON July 17 1864 f Col Frank WolfordMY SIR By

forwarded and which was afterwards published and used in the campaign of 1864 LOUISVILLE KY July 30 1864 To ABRAHAM LINCOLN PRESI DENT OF THE UNITED STATES SIRI have the honor of acknowl edging the receipt of your letter proposing to me a discharge from an arrest in many ways vexatious and inconvenient upon my sign ing a parole whereby I am to pledge my honor that I will neither do nor say anything that will either directly or indirectly tend to hinder delay or embar rass the employment and use of colored persons as soldiers seamen or otherwise in the suppres sion of the rebellion so long as the United States Government chooses to employ and use them In answer to this proposal I have frankly to say that I cannot bar gain for my liberty and the exer cise of my rights as a freeman

without presumption that I have done more to enlist white men in the army of the Union than any other man in the State of Kentucky I have done nothing to hinder the enlistment of negroes because I do not as sociate with them and have no in fluence over them You Mr President if you will allow the bluntness of a solder by the ex ercise of arbitrary power have caused me to be arrested and held in confinement contrary to law not for the good of our common country but to increase the chances of your reelection to the Presidency a n d otherwise to serve the purposes of the politic al party whose

taken my case in your own hands Mr President let me appeal to your sense of justice and ask that you will will give to what Ii have to say in my defense a can did hearing and then do what you see fit and here I trust I shall be pardoned if I may speak of myself somewhat more largely than the canons of good taste may seem to warrant for as my acts are the subject of the sole accu sation against me so they are my sole defense Whether or not they form a triumphant defense you sir shall judge On the 10th of March 1864 in the city of Lexington Ky the Union men of Fayette county were pleased to present me with a fine sword a pair of valuable pistols and a pair of spurs In response to an eloquent presenta tion speech made by an learned divine I delivered a Union speech the leading purpose of which was to promote the recruiting of men for a division of cavalry which I then had the honor to command and whose ranks had been thinned by losses in battle the First Division having just come to Ken tucky from the frontforthe pur pose of recruiting refiting and remounting I made a long speech in which I discussed ful ly the wickedness of the rebell ion and contrasted the misery and despotism of the socalled Southern Government with the the happiness and freedom of our own In the course of the speech I spoke of your abolition policy and condemned it But I insist ed that it was the duty of all good citizens to defend their country by fighting the rebellion wheth er they approved the policy of the administration or not For the true character of the speech I re fer you to the statements of M C Johnson and others which I enclose The men whose names are subscribed thereto are men of the highest order of intellect and of the most elevated moral character The substance of what they say therein can be proved by five hundred ladies and gentlemenFor speech I was arrested and sent to Knoxville in the State of Tennessee where I re mained without any charges be ing preferred against me until you were induced by some wick ed men in Kentucky who knew that no court martial could be found that would even centure me for anything said in that speech to issue an order found ed on a bare rumor as you your self informed me dishonorably dismissing me from the service of the United States for violating the fifth article of war for dis loyalty and for conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman Now Mr President what I want to call your attention particularly to is that every word contained in this order of dismissal is false that there is not the least found ation for truth contained in it I did not violate the fifth article of war nor did I ever violate any article of war in my life It was my duty to study the articles of war and teach them to my men and I think I understand them The only thing 1 said about you personally was that you had told- a great political truth when you said that you had no power under the Constitution of the United States to interfere with the domestic institutions of the States I further said that you were the President of the United States md as such was commanderin heif of 2j n which made it mydu ur Position and that- en our Order 4tirr charges me with disloyalty Sure t ly I am not disloyal I never did r a disloyal act spoke a disloyal disloyalthought f ty js treason and treason is the highest crime known to our law The charge of disloyalty Ishouldnot be lightly made against any officer or citizen As proof that I am loyal let me set befor you a few facts At the commencement of war I opposed the doctrine of neutral ity in Kentucky When Govern or McGoffin refused to respond to your call for volunteers I raised responSlbillitymy countrys service After wards by your permission under the auspices of the lamented Nelson I raised the first regiment of Kentucky volunteer cavalry and had it mustered into the ser vice of the United States I rais ed this regiment at my own ex pense without ever asking the Government to refund the mon ey I was almost three years in the service always in the front andever present in the discharge of my duty although at the time suffering from severe wounds re ceived in battles- I was almost all the time fight ing so that the fights and skism ishes that I was in number over three hundred I was in almost all the fights that were fought in the states of Kentucky and Tennessee I was in all the chases after Morgan and was present and second in comnand when he was captured In many fights I commanded a regiment in many others a brigade and for a inamany fights a division For proof that 1 did my duty in the field and in the camp and that my command always behaved well and fought well I refer you to Generals Burnside Shakel ford Hobson Sturgis and Car ter I never made any written reports of the battles I fought because I seldom had time be sides I was not seeking fame and did not desire promotion Loving my men from long association with them I resolved to join my old regiment as a pri vate but was so disabled by the wounds I had received in batt that I could not pass the s inations of the surgeons thought of going along old comrades at m 3 penses but was prey doing so by an order Being thus cut off any thing for ay cou Jfffiiy I accepted y the non of the Union Conservative Con vention as a candidate of that party for the office of Elector at the next Presidentialelection and commenced a canvass of the State My first appointment was at Lebanon the 25th day of May 1864 from there I had a number of appointments filling up the month of June On the 28th day of may I received from Governor Bramlett this note HEADQUARTERS KENTUCKY VOLUNTEERS YMay COL FRANK WOLFORD You are requested to raise a regiment of six months troops You will rendezvous at Lebanon Signed THOS E BRAMLETTE Gov of KY I dertermined to comply with his request and accordingly filledm- yappointments for the double purpose of dischargingjmy duty as an electoral candidate and raising the regiment Thus you see that one of my objects in making the very speeches on account of which I am accused of discouraging enlistments was to enlist troops and it was not until after I had succeeded in en listing a full regiment that I was arrested I111JlAO1t Yot Cotwued io Sixth pagt l J 1 tr J i 1 ti C f rr 1 7 ir ifi l Pi trtrf il x 4 rTHE ADAIR COUNTY EWt COLUMBIA

from West from North from South to spend a short while in mixing and mingling with kith and kin hearthstonetwhere the fires of many years ago sparkled and where your f pictured and dimily drew the fu ture lines of your living and at tainments In acknowledging my andPin giving you the most cordial welcome I feel and know that I- joycannot fully express the real the pulsatingenthusiatic wel comes and the genuine happi ness of the various members of my large family for whom I speak throughout this part of the Old Commonwealth The fatted calf has been killed the doors of the old home flung wide open and you are invited to share the hospitality that character izes true Kentuckians and points them out a peculiar people ad mired and loved wherever they go Throughout the great fam ily of states there is not another member so happy as your old state whose joy can not be pict ured or expressed but only im agined and felt and from the Big Sandy to its western borders from the Ohio to sunny Tennes there is not another section d Old Kentucky whose r is fuller than the one u claim the old home ks may have long sleep the bloom of Ihave disappeared doles and the i stones may mark f 1 the resting place of a fond school mate but regardless of the devastating Hand of Time the sweeping changes that come with the years yet the verdant hills the rich valleys and the old pathes still remain to point you to the incidents of the long ago Your return here may not be for the purpose only to Plant a flower on mothers grave and live over in imagination the va ried experiences of early life but as we hope and trust to en joy the realities of the present the hearty welcome warm handshakes and hospitalities of those who still guard with fidelity the j Old Kentucky Home IAs many of you are not ac j tqwaited with me and probably r never heard of my existence I I ifeeMt a duty to introduce my r self and briefly state my histo l l xyI I was born November the 3rd f 1897 in the town of Columbia and while I labored unceasingly I i to keep up the standard of your lf fathers in the moral and social jgftfjp ks oflife yet I have with IJ Idsiren more enthusiasm nt l tJf iI 7 sleepless nights and tiresome days to give vim vigor and growth to the industrial expan lion in this part of the state directed by your friends and your kin I am the legitimate off spring of Mr and Mrs Enterprise my mothers maiden name being Miss Public Demand Throughout this part of the state my parents are wellknown and while I may have failed in many respects to prove the realworth of good blood yet my efforts have the backing of near ly 23QO of as good citizens as can be found in any country who take me into their home every week and give me as close attention as could be given a distin guished guest Entering the ac tive duties of life in a time of business depression and con fronting political division and animosity my path has not been bedeckedwith roses nor strewn with the rich rewards incident to active endeavor but merging from the environments of the past I am gaining strength as the seasons come and go and rarely ever a day passes without being invited to visit new homes I believe in enterprise and have identified myself with those who labor for development in every avenue that leads to better conditions For six years I kept house in rude quarters in an upper story but now I am better adjusted on the first floor where I cordially invite every visitor to call and see me If you want to keep in lively touch with things and events in the Old Kentucky Home if you desire to keep fresh the recollec tion of Home Coming and keep face to face with the movements and advancements of this part of the world then place a dollar on the table and let me come to see you every week for one year Again extending a hearty wel come for our town our county andmyself I am yours truly The Adair County News The Democratic State Execu tive Committee decided last week that a primary should be held on November 6th for the purpose of selecting candidates for our State ticket to be voted for and elected in November 1907 and also for Ia nominee for United States Senator to be chosen by the Gen eral Assembly in 1908 While we protested against suchearly policy and do not believe it a wise action and while it savors much of machine methods of reckless political ambition instead of wise and prudentent party action yet we shall take our medicine with out a kick and do our duty as we see it It may be that the call is the result of a strong organiza tion at Frankfort that seeks perpetuation or advancement and it may be the honest and deliberate opinion of the Committee but regardless of the promptings that lurk in the dark and the forc ing of early action the Demo crats of KentuckYare acters and can fix up a ticket one year in r advance as well as within sixty days There is ample time to de termine who shall fill the various positions So far as we are con cernedwe shall participate in the responsibilities from the standpoint of pub otnhi bowing to few who may ji interest in early actiohi In other words after all entries have made we hope to find an able man for- every position who is unfeteredI v jj by combinations unidentified with machine methods and free from political niort gestThe fact is we believe in undisputed merit behind every nominee With a ticket thus endowed and selected by the voters of our par ty it will roll up the old time ma jority but if made by trick and trafficby machine methods it may jeopardize our supremacy in the State and seriously impair our strength in aiding in the winning of National battle in 1908 At any rate the decree has been made and Democrats must keep on the alert and name the strong est ticket that ever confronted the opposition or managed theaf fairs of the State The St Louis Globe = Democrat an intensely partisan Republican journal gives all the credit to the Republican party for the railroad rate legislation But Senator Foraker who should be good authority declared that it was a Democratic measure pronounced for in the Democratic National Platforms and that no Repub lican platform hadendorsed it Mr Bryan took

with the murder of Tom Marcum When Breathitt county gets rid of tfyese peace will likely be restored in that locality A special from Washington says that Senator Blackburn an nounced a few days ago that he would never again be a candidate for the nomination for office His name has been frequently mentioned for Govenor and he has been promised the support of the Kentucky members of Con gress The State Democratic Execu tive Commttee has called a primary to nominate State officers and a candidate for United States Senator The date is Nevember 6 and the primary voting place will be located about forty feet from the regular voting place Curt Jett who is in jail at Cyn thiana has made a confession He says that he killed Marcum and Cockrill and implicates Judge James Hargis Elbert Hargis and Ed

when those very speeches enabled me to raise a regiment for the service in shorter time than any regi ment was ever raised before in the state of Kentucky Speaking for recruits and obtaining then with unprecedented rapidity and yet discouraging enlistment But your friends say I did not ask th negroes to join me It is true I didnot I told the people I want ed white men brave men and honest men and that I would not receive if I knew it a negro a coward or a thief as I desired negroRas as to els and wanted brave men with whom to do it as I desired to cultivate good feelings between the citizens and the soldiers and therefore wanted honest men who had a high appreciation of private rights and who would remember that the dwelling of every Amer ican citizen was sacred because it is the castle of his defense and the home of a sovereign In re lation to enlisting slaves I did say that I was opposed to the act of Congress authorizing it and doubted its constitutionality but that it was the duty of the peo ple to make no opposition to it ex cept legal opposition that they had a right to bring suits and let the judiciary decide the question Those speeches were made to white men not for the purpose of preventing the enlistment of ne groes but one purpose was to allay the excitement of the citi zens and keep down forcible re sistance to your measures and I know that they did much good in that way And now Mr President I propose for every negro that any of your agents can find that has been directly or indirectly influenced by any of my speeches not to join the ar my to find you one hundred white men who have been kept out of the army by your procla mations You have the power but truth and justice are with meI thank you for the printed copy of your letter to Mr Hodges which you sent to me with the proffered parole I have read it carefully and find in it this remarkable statement By general law life and limb must be preserved yet often a limb must be amputated to save a life but a life is never wisely given to save a limb I felt that measures otherwise unconstitutional might become lawful by becoming indispensable to the preservation of the Constitution through the preservation of the Nation Right or wrong I as sumed this ground and I now avow it- Unless I have been strangely misinstructed Mr President the Constitution is not a limb attach ed to the Government but is the life of the Government In de stroying it you destroy the bonds by which the Union is held to gether and take the life of th Government The idea of an unconstitutional policy becomin necessary to preserve the Gov ernment and save the Constitution is like the idea of killing man to keep him from dying of disease You amend the law to make the Rebels eyitdiSre gard the Constitution to make them oatgyrespect to keep from b he framers of the i J i f r k ly never intended that a Pres ident should tamper with his sol emn oath and that sacred instru ment in any suchmanner again you say I was in my best judgment driven to the alternative of either surrendering the Union and with it the Constitution or of laying strong hands on the colored element I chose the latter Do you really mean to say that the white citizen soldiers could not whip the rebel and all the gestrength resources power and valor of the white man you failed to save the Un ion and with two millions of white men still in reserve you fightdin to save the country If you do Mr President what a compliment you pay to white men in and out of the army negro according to this doc lOne is worth in the army much than a dozen white men Do you believe it sir You claim again by this policy you made the addition of one hundred and thirty thousand colored soldiers to the army Would not two hundred thousand white men have done as well You add Now let any Union man who complains of this measuse test himself by writing down in one line that he is for subduing the rebellion by force of arms and in the next that he is for taking these one hundred and thirty thousand men from the Union side and placing them where they would be but for the meas ure which he condemns if he cannot face his case so stated it is only because he cannot face the truth I am that Union man andI thus I face the case To place your one hundred and thirty thousand colored men where they would be but for the measure in question would be to place most of them back into the cornfields to raise supplies for our army and to return the re mainder to their legal owners making them a monument of the justice magnanimity and good faith of our Government being as they would be so many living witnesses that you had kept your pledges while their places in the army would be more than filled by five hundred thousand white nfen who but for this measure would have volunteer ed Now Mr President will you test yourself by writing down on one side of the paper that at the commencement of the war you took the oath to preserve the Constitution and see that the laws made in pursuance thereof were faithfully executed that you pledged yourself to the people that you would carry on the war for the defense of the Union alone and not in any spirit oi conquest or subjugation that you would notinterfere with the withetheir domestic institutions with withgtheir private affairs that the re lations of parent and child gnar- dian and ward master and ser vant husband and wife should all be respected and remain un changed ly the war that these pledges trengthenedtheVeak confirmed the doubtful fired the patriotic heart with new zeal sdlndt 1JYr fri r- yhm the available Union strength in the nation that upon them Congress voted all the men and mon ey that you desired that soon you had collected by volunteering the purest noblest grandest ar my of intelligent Christian sol diers that ever was seen on the face of the earth that this grand army composed of Dem ocrats Republicans and old line Whigs Abolitionists and men of no party met around the altar of their country and standing on your pledges sank the parti san into the patriot and in the name pf the God of Liberty and of the Union were marching for ward like a band of brothers to victory and to glory that your pledges had inspired the Union man inside of the rebel lines with new hopes and new life and made him rejoice in the justice of the Government of his fa thers and finally that they served to increase division and discontent in the rebel army and among the southern people so that great hopes were entertain ed of a counter revolution in the South in favor of peace and of the Unionwrite down these facts on one side I say and then write down on the other side that you changed your mind and vio lated all those pledges that you broke the Constitution and your oath to preserve it that you in terfered with the rights of the States and of individuals that you usurped the power to disturb the relation between master and servant and issued proclama tions freeing the slaves that you procured the passage by Conj gress of odious confiscation laws that you are now trying toI change this war into a war of plunder conquest and subJuga- tion that you claim the right to reduce sovereign states into the condition of conquered provinces that to accomplish these things you have placed the military above the civil authority that you have instituted a system of arbitrary arrests which hasgiven rise to numerous instances of cruelty and oppression by dragging innocent men and in some instances even women and children away from their peaceful a homes to undergo the privations of a prison in which some of them must die and all to gratify the private malice of some of your partisan leaders I do not pretend to say that wicked men have not sometimes been arrested that you have constituted strange and unconstitu tional courts to try citizens denying them the right of being confronted with their accusers face to face as well as the right of trial by jury and denying to them the benefit of the law as well as the privilege having it expounded in their behalf by a learned Judge these strange courts having usurped to impri son citizens for life and even to banish them from their country that you have declared martial law and denied the right to a writ of HABEAS CORPUS in the loyal State of Kentucky at a time when the civil authority is in full force that you have per mitted military officers in Ken tucky to interfere with the freedom of elections by issuing or ders stating wh shallbe allowed to run for office and who shallQe lContinual on Seventh Page t IrY A TO
