Current Page Transcription [history]

Mr. T. M. Chester rose to a privileged question. He read from the Times of Saturday morning an article reflecting on the colored people, and offered a resolution intended as an answer to the Times. The resolution was referred to the committee on resolutions.

Mr. Clarke, of Ohio, chairman of the committee appointed to draft a civil rights address, made a report. The address was read, and Mr. Downing objecting to it as not being explicit enough on the subject of education, it was referred back to committee for the purpose of having such changes made as might be deemed necessary.

Mr. Ransier, chairman of the committee on platform and resolutions, made a report, and it was adopted by the convention.

The committee on civil rights address made an amended report, but as objections were still made to it, its further consideration was deferred until Monday, when it is made the special order of the day.

The convention then adjourned until half-past seven in the evening.
