TO DISFRANCHISE THE NEGRO
A plan to disfranchise the negro
vite in Missouri at intiire elections is
being considered by Democrat!
politicians over the state. While the
movement has not taken definite form
yet, it is,belived probable that
"Crandfither" legislation, such as
has been adopted in the Southern

session of the leislatiire and effort
made to force its adoption.
Kaeh session of the legislature tor
the last six years Democratic leaders
have discused the probablitv of suc
cess of efforts to disfranchise the
negro vole. Hut on account of the
nearly equal strength of the then two
parties in the state they lusit.ited to
make the effort to get sip h laws
adopted. Several times. however, the
matter was threshed out 1 fore the

Democrats will have in the coming
legislature will make it almost a
certainty that the tpiestion of restrictin
