invitation. The meeting was devoted to
an interchange of views on the political

to what could be done and what was neces
sary to do it. A significant speech was
made by ex-Governor Pinchback, of Lou
isiana, one of the colored members of the
Charge Against Sonthern Republican.

the negroes in the south was largely due
to the bearing of the white Republicans
there, who kept their party men of the
African race from taking an active part
in politics, and from asserting their right
of suffrage. Pinchback advocated lie
fostering of a more independent spirit on
on the part of the southern negro voters,

ALDAxi", Nov. J5 ITpon the question of
organization of the legislature it is
claimed here that the election of Osborne
being ascertained there will certainly be
fifteen Democratic senators, and if the
state board of canvassers decide in ac
cordance with the attorney general's
opinion that Sherwood, of the Twenty
seventh district, is ineligible, aud seat his
Democratic opponent, the next senate
will stand Democrats, 16; Republicans,
15; Independent (Edward-t), 1. Even
though Kdwards should vote steadily
with the Republican the Democrats
would still have coutrol, as Lieutenant
Governor Sheehan would give the casting
A Majority of Three in the House.
The seating of Sherwood would give the
Republicans sixteen and the Democrats
fifteen, with Kdwards as an unknown
quantity. In the assembly the seating of
Kyan and Beakes gave the Democrats
sixty-six members and the Republicans
sixty-two. The death of Assemblyman
Murphy will reduce the Democratic vote
in the assembly to sixty-five, which will
still give them a majority of three, and
secure the organization.
