The memorial was prepared.- submit ted to a mass meeting held at Sidney Par!; church, and fh#ce ..'. then ' '..*... "?iionoly ?. opted? A committee v. as then oelect?d to present the memorial to this board. After weeks of effort they succeeded-in getting an op portunity, and on Wednesday night of last week appeared be fore the board and presented th? memorial. Those appearing be, fore the board were:- Reverends N. C. Cleaves, J. J. Durham. C. C. Scott, Messrs Joseph Pelot Issac S. Levy, N. H Collins, G W. Pegues, N. S. Shelton. Th< memorial is a strong and con vin cing paper, and will doubtlesi have effect. The members o the school board who were pres ent, some of them were absent expressed themselves as being ii sympathy with us, and is willinj todo all that is possible for th colored people; but said they di not see their way clear to ac just at present upon any of th requests made, but would consit er them carefully and take actio just as soon as possible. Whil there is a desire on the part c some persons to have the men orial published ir The Souther Indicator, the memorial commi tee as well as The lndicat< believes it is not expedient to c so; at any rate notexpedient ju now. The Indicator will keep i readers advised from time to tin of what is being done in regan to the matter. Mrs. Ben. Williams' 82n Birthday.
