The political conference of the re?

night last, determined, unanimously, to
abide by the recognition of the oivil and
political equality of the negro; to pro?
tect colored men who voted with the
Reform Party; to weloomo all oolorcd
men who desire to enter the conserva?
tiveranks; to expose frauds at the late
election and bring offenders tn ju*?ice,
and to uso every exertion in discounto

I inveighing, after the election, against the
11 law under which the election was held.

I went to work to ni ak o his stable secure,
I after his horse had been stolen.
' I It now says that "there was gross

I M in the eleotion law lies the possibility
1 of frauds ten times as great as any
. u committed at the recent election
. I "such, in fact, as would reader au
, " election actually and truly a oostly
I " farce." It also urges <(the immediate
!* " amendment or repeal of the law," and
L says if this ia not doue, "Republicanism
" is no better than tyranny-in fact is
" a despicable tyranny."
It is strango that tho Republican,
I (with all its "fairness"), from thc time
this law was originally framed in the
! Legislature, until tho final consumma?
tion of it? outrageous operations, didu't
1 find this ont, or say a word against it.
