Not illustrated. 1877 edition. Excerpt: ...the State; nnd when they have ascertained that their dutv is at an end. There is no tiiuo, there is no place to try any question of incligibliitylor of election when the votes are to be counted. And how are we to know that I o certificates came from the electors of the State!
