Much can be said in praise of
the way Darlington entertained
the delegates. The delegates
one and all were of the opinion
that the federation had never
been so well entertained before.
Mesdames Collins, Gordon, Jen
kins and the pastors of the
churches Revs. Calahan, Scott,
and Rev. Perrin with the host of
others who assisted, seemed
never to tire in trying to make
things pleasant for the visitors.
The slogan for the coming year
is "A club in every town and
community of the state, and
these clubs represented at the
meeting in Columbia June 1916."
On to Columbia in 191G? What

COURT UPSETS VALIDITY OF
Tribunal Decides Against
Constitutionality of Elec
tion Regulations Existing
Before 15th Amendment.
Washington, June21.^The su
preme court, in what is consider
ed one of the most important
race decisions in history, today an
nuled as unconstitutional the Ok
lahoma constitutional amendment
and the Annapolis, Md., voters'
qualification law restricting the
suffrage rights of those who
could not vote or whose ancest
ors could not vote prior to the
ratification of the fifteenth
amendment to the federal con
s i tu ti on.
Chief Justice White, a native
of tfie South and a former Con
federate soldier, announced the
court's decision, which was un
amious. except that Justice Mc
Rey ni ld took no part in case.
By holding that conditions that
existed before the fifteenth am
endment* which provides that
the right to vote shall no: be
denied or abridge on account of
race, color or previous condition
of sarvitude, could not be
brought over to the present day
in disregard of this self exe
cuting amendment, It is general
ly believed that the court went
a long way toward invali
dating much of the socalled
grand-father clause? ? lu con
stations of Southern states.
FROM SMALL BASIS.
The immediate effect of the
court, s decision was to uphold
the conviction of two Oklahoma
election officials who denied Ne
groes the right to vote in a con
. gressional -election, ancLto* award
from election officials ih--?pna?
polib who refused to registei
them. The court held that Oki*
norna ?lection officials could coi
ignore the fifteenth amendment
in wiping Out of state constutiqnf
the word "white" as a cualifica
tion for voting. In the ? Marjf;
land case, the court's decision:es
tablished the point that the flf
teenth amendment , applies tx
municipal as well as to f?d?ra!
elections. ...... i i .
Discussing the Oklahoma case
Chief Justice White said the sui
ferage amendment to the stat
constitution first fixed a literac;
standard, and then followed i
with a provision creating a stand
ard based upon the condition ex
i sting on January 1, 1866, prio
to the adoption of the flfteent
amendment, and eliminate
those coming under that stand
ard from the inclusion in th
The court held that this actioi
recreated and perpetuated th
very conditions which the iii
teenth amendment was intende
"It is true," continued th
chief, "that it contains no ei
press word of an exclusion c
any peoson on account of rac<
color, or previous condition (
servitude, but the standard 1
self inherently brings thatn
suit into existence.
"In other words, we seek i
vain for any ground whic
would sustain any other interpr
tation but that the provision, r
curring to the conditions exis
mg bof ore the fifteenth am em
ment was adopte^<^oppsed .1
makethemthe uasis of the ri#i
to suffrage. And the same resul
we are of the opinion, is demo
stratediW consideration wheth
it is possible to discover any ba
is br reason for the stand ai
thus'fixed, other tftan the pu
"ose above stated. " '
MANY BECOME POSITIVE,
he chief justice had. prdtec*
state by a deyeippement
argument that the restrictu

power itself. ?
ue~sense the il
ment -, gives i
iffrage/y "it w
fon g Jj l?femzed that in ope
crimination against which it was
aimed, the result might
arise that as a cones
quence of the striking down
of a discriminating cause a
right of suffrage would be enjoy
ed by reason of the generic char
acter of the provision which
would remain after the discrim
ination was stricken out."
