Finally by tho addition of cream mid

ing extract from an able editorial in the
New York Sun on the red man with a

why the Indian did not get his rights
was becauso ho had no voto. Possessed
of n voto, he will find champions enough

was the interest women took in political
questions. They read, studied und in
