General H.H. Heath, of New Mexico, was the next speaker. He spoke of the feeling of pride and patriotism that must thirll each heart today. He did not believe that freedom was the result only of political action, it resulted also from the expenditure o f blood, bullets, and muscle. He did not regret the war which had made them free. The war was political. On the part of the North, he believed that it was conducted for the abolition of slavery. We have reciprocal duties to perform, and one of them belong ing to the colored race was to vote for the men who secured them their liberty. [Applause.] You cannot trust your enemies, although you need not hate them. The war of the ballot box is not yet over, and that battle must be fought by you now. Sustain your principles by sustaining the men you mad you free.
