[27]"From the foregoing statement it appears that the Republicans have gained since the last year, the average number of 800 votes, which is an increase of near one fourth. The embarrassment produced by the late election Law upon the freedom of suffrage, has probably suppressed Republican votes equal to one fourth part of the number given in October last."
