Current Saved Transcription [history]

Mr. Rapier. of Alabama, would like to have stricken from the report that portion that condemned members of Congress for not sustaining the civil rights bill when before Congress, known as the supplementary civil rights bill.

Mr. Clarke, of Ohio thought: it impolitic to have anything in the platform calculated to embarrass the republican party in the coming Presidential election. That party was not able to carry any dead weight in the race about to be run. its success next fall is of more importance to the colored people than any attempt at this time to force social equality. He would have them look at this matter in a sensible way, and not attempt to do anything that is calculated to bring defeat upon the party.
