petition that they use their influence to
the same end.
The McKinley Club, of this city, which
is composed of white Republican voters,
will also add its protest, and. to top the
matter off, will come a mass meeting of
citizens of all shades of politics, who will
select an Influential delegation to visit
Washington and protest.
