Lincoln Refuses to Answer.


Thursday, August 26, 1858.

Lincoln refuses to answer the following questions:

1. Will you, if elected to the Senate, vote to admit a state whose constitution authorizes slavery?

2. Will you vote for the acquisition of territory from which slavery has not been excluded by law?

3. Will you vote for the repeal of the Fugitive Slave law?

People of Illinois, the man who asks your votes for Senator, refuses to answer how he will vote on these questions, if elected. – Chicago Times.
