It is supposed that, the Legisla turcc of almost all of the States be iug thoroughly Radical ti, present, the I 15th amendment forbidding any dis tinction in the right to vote or hold of fiee on account of "race, color, proper ty, education or creed," will pass three fourths of them and become a part of the Supreme Law of the land.
