The suffrage provisions of the People's Constitution are compared with those of the "regular legal constitution," to the great detriment of the former. Under the "so-called People's Constitution, the whole body of naturalized foreigners in this State, amounting to several THOUSANDS, are placed on an equality with our native born citizens... In other words, the foreign population will govern the State, and they will govern it in all time!"
Opinions of the Justices of the State Supreme Court and the State Attorney General are printed declaring the People's Constitution void. To support it "is Treason against the State."
