It is only necessary to look at the inconsistency of the Republican leaders to satisfy every reasonable man that they are not the persons to trust. In northern Illinois, we hear Lincoln boldly saying that "that old declaration of Independence declares that all men are equal." When he goes south, he says that a negro should not be recognized as a citizen, that he should not testify in court against a white man. How can any reasonable man read Lincoln's position North and South, and then vote for that individual for the United States Senate? We ask the candid mind to reflect over the inconsistencies of Lincoln.
