The Boys in Blue!—Immense Demonstration .'--Fifteen Thousand Veterans in Line! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
The Boys in Blue!—Immense Demonstration .'--Fifteen Thousand Veterans in Line! The demonstration of the Boys iu Blue, last Thursday and Friday, in Philadelphia, was the largest and most enthusiastic of the kind ever witnessed iu this country. Over fifteen thousand veterans marched in line to the music of Liberty and Union. Weare unable, for want of space, to attempt giving an account of the glorious gathering. We can only say that it was much greater and grander than was expected by any one. It proves that our gallant defenders in the field mean also to protect us against the political organization of butchers, assassins, traitors and perjurers at the ballot-box, on Tuesday next. VOTE EABLY!

gar (Tormfjonbcnrc. MANOR , Oct. 1,1868. EDITORS FATHER ABRAHAM .- —The farmers' boys of the north-west corner of Manor township, claim the honor of having erected a splendid Grant and Colfax pole, eighty feet in length, on the road between Brenneman's Hotel and Columbia, about midway between the former place and the Columbia turnpike , on Wednesday evening, September 30th. The affair was hastily gotten up, and was known to but few. There were about twenty-five persons in all, and, although owing to the limited means at hand, many doubted the capability of so small a number to raise the ponderous weight, the pole went up triumphantly, and about ten o'clock at night three hearty cheers rent the air as the Grant and Colfax flag kissed the skies. The manner in which the affair was conducted displayed a great unity of purpose, without which they could not have accomplished their work. No speakers being present or engaged, they called upon several of their own number. B. N. Lehman ...

The City of Reading. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
The City of Reading. The greatest and grandest political demonstration ever witnessed in the city of Reading came off last Saturday night. The torch-light procession was a mile and a half long, including a Carpet-Bag Club of about 75 men. The assembled thousands were addressed by Generals Stevens and Kilpatrick, and Mr. Lear, of Bucks county, and Hon. James H. Campbell. Beading, the great city of Old Berks, will give a decided Republican majority on Tuesday next. The Cops are making desperate efforts to prevent it, but the voice of the patriotic people is against them. VOTE EARLY 1
._ "What Have I Done?" [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
._ "What Have I Done?" Ask yourself, Republican! "What have I done for my cause and my principles ?" " What have I done to secure peace and a government of law ?" "What have I done to carry forward the work for which half a million of men have given their lives ?" Let every Republican ask himself these questions. And if any one feels that he has not done his whole duty, now is the time to repair the error. BEGIN AT ONCE 1 Resolve that from this time until the election you will each give at least one hour every day to the highest duty of a citizen. VOTE EARLY 1
New Advertising Dodge. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
New Advertising Dodge. A lager beer brewer of a neighboring county managed to smuggle into a Bepublican paper an assertion that he, the "well-known brewer ," had declared for Grant and Colfax, whereupon the " wellknown lager beer brewer" aforesaid wrote or caused to be written, his indignant denial, which the copperhead papers were green enough to publish free gratis and for nothing I That is what we consider a very smart advertising dodge, and dog cheap!
Attention, Bepublicans [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
Attention, Bepublicans Don't waste 3-our time next Tuesday by any useless controversy with Copperheads, but mind your business—everyone of you. Don't discuss anything, but act. If you can think of a single man within the circle of your acquaintance who may be slow or indifferent, go for him in the morning, and bo sure to bring him with you. VOTE EARLY!
Poll Every Vote [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
Poll Every Vote Don't take for granted that we have plenty of voters, witthout bringing your aged, inlirm or indiiferent neighbor to the polls. Wc have votes enough to overwhelm the sham Democracy, but, to make sure of such a victory, we must bring every Republican voter to the polls. VOTE EARLY!
Don't Pair Off! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
Don't Pair Off! Let no Republicans be foolish enough to pair off with a Copperhead on Tuesday next. Their game, in some localities, will be for one Copperhead to pair off with several Republicans. Don't trust them, but vote the Republican ticket. Let nothing induce you to neglect your duty. VOTE EARLY!
v Two O'clock! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
v Two O'clock! Every Republican should have his vote polled not later than two o'clock on next Tuesday afternoon, and then go after his neighbor. Every one should be able to bring at least one voter besides himself to the polls. By voting early and working all day every Republican can be brought to the polls, and the rebel Dem-1 ocracy buried in their last ditch. VOTE EARLY!

The Fenians, [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
The Fenians, Several Irish newspapers , and many of the Fenians, have recentl y declared against Seymour and Blair, and for Grant and Colfax. Among the reasons for these changes, we suppose the principal one is Prank Blair's Know-Nothing speech some years ago, in which he declared he would "rather sleep with a nigger than an Irishman."

_¦ u The Prospects Glorious ! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
_¦ u The Prospects Glorious ! .Never, m the history 01 the great Republican party, were the prospects of a glorious victory in Pennsylvania better than now. That the interior counties will do even better than two years ago, when Geary carried the State by over 17,000 majority, we firmly believe. Old Lancaster will roll up at lest 6,000 majority, and this figure will not be overbalanced by benighted Old Berks. In Philadelphia and in Luzerne, and in several other localities , the most stupendous Copperhead frauds are attempted , but, our friends are duly posted, and prepared to hold them in check. In Allegheny our friends will not give less than 8500 for Hartranft and Campbell; Erie will give 3000 and Tioga 3500 more; glorious Bradford is good for at least 4000 and Indiana 2200; Lawrence will roll up 2300 and Chester 2500; Little Lebanon , Dauphin, Delaware and Susquehanna will each give 1500, whilst Union, Snyder , Blair, Huntingdon , Somerset, Potter, Warren, Beaver, Butler, M...
The Naturalization Frauds.—How to Treat Them. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 October 1868
The Naturalization Frauds.—How to Treat Them. We caution all election oflicers not to receive any votes offered by those who claim to be naturalized citizens by virtue of papers issued by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. They are base frauds and forgeries, and to receive such votes would be outrageous. Election oflicers should be very careful about naturalization papers generally, and satisfy themselves well that all holders are clearly entitled to naturalization by full five years' residence in this country. In all really doubtful cases, treat the papers as frauds and forgeries, and reject the votes. The Supreme Court papers are all bogus, and every holder ought to be promptly arrested and required to give an account of himself before an impartial majistrate. VOTE EARLY!
