The Democrats of Georgia and Louisiana band together and equip themselves with the most approved rifles
The Democrats of Georgia and Louisiana band together and equip themselves with the most approved rifles, and feel hurt if any one questions their constitutional right to thus bear arms. But the exercise of the same right on the part of the Republicans, is looked upon as a conspiracy against the peace of the State, And to find a revolver or rifle in the possession of a colored man is sufficient evidence to hang the possessor to the limb of a tree or riddle him with bullets. This is Southern Democracy, that claims national honors at the hands of the people. If savage barbarism could win honors, Democracy would carry off the lion’s share.
