NEGRO DOMINATION THE SOUTHS CONSTANT DREAD. The Mississippi Constitutional Convention Petitions Congress forthe Repaal of the Fifteenth Amendment. Jackson, Miss., Sept. 30. —In the con stitutional convention today, the com mittee to which was referred the subject of memorializing congress to repeal the fifteenth amendment, reported a long set of resolutions. They set forth that the white and negro races, though friendly and homogeneous for all busi ness and industrial purposes, are widely separated by race instincts and preju dices, in all political and social matters. There is no well founded hope of change. With such conditions there will ever be conflicts of greater or less magnitude concerning the control of the govern ments of the states in which their num bers areapproxiamately equal. Such a condition of insecurity is not only a great political and social evil, but "also greatly impedes industrial development; and inasmuch as the white people only are capable of conducting and main taining the government of such states, the negro race (even if its people were educated) being wholly unequal to such great re sponsibility, therefore it is the deliber ate judgment of the people of Missis sippi that the only efficient remedy lies in the repeal of the fifteenth amend ment, whereby such restrictions may be put upon negro suffrage by the several states as may be necessary and proper for the maintenance of good and stable governments therein. Congress is asked to submit the proposition to the states. THE NATIONAL GAME. Yesterday's Work on the Eastern Hull Fields.
