    The Chicago Times does not yet DARE to let its readers see what its candidate for Vice-President, Herschel V. Johnson, said about Popular Sovereignty and a Slave Code, four weeks ago. Nor has it yet published complete the platform of its faction. It has carefully suppressed the Wickliff slave code plank, which Douglas in his letter of acceptance took especial pains to single out and unqualifiedly endorse. Such conduct on the part of the Times is not only cowardly but positively dishonest towards the members of its own faction.
