Mr. IVatson, of Nottbway,' concluded 1
"before the Domocratic conlerenco last
jiicht the speech which he began Thurs
il.iy night in support, of the majority.;
jilan of nutlragc. The fcame. close atten
tion which he received on the first night
lie zpcelved again Jast night, and his ar-;
pamcni last night was fully as .strong as
the one .of. the. night before.
A givaX portion of Mr, ;. "Watson's, time
was devoted to discussion of the details
of his plan, lie argued for his military
clause, and a reasonable property quali
iica.Uon.Jle declared the military clause
would enfranchise £\>: per cent, of the
.white men of Virginia. 7 "
Then he lookup discussion 01" the per
.•iisnent understanding clause. The un
derstanding clause proposed by. the ma
jority, requires a general understanding
of tlie duties of the officers for whom
he desired to vote. The understanding
clause proposed by the minority, requires
ibe intending voter to bo able to read
.any section of the Constitution, or to
understand it when read to him. ilere
irec ecbool training and only n small
«:nount of it would enable' the negro to
inert the test proposed by the minority.
Mr. "\Vnti=on declared he did not believe
an understanding fclau.se would be mal
admlnistcred. Xo law on the statute
books is bad per se. Maladministration
would not be necessary in his section in
union to make the understanding" clause
do its work. The mariner £iay sit down
by his fireside and descant upon naviga
tion as an exact science, T>ut when he is
t>eing tossed upon the sea in a. storm.
Vie guides his actions by the demand of
•.he moment; he calculates the height of
Ihc waves, the strength of the »wind, the
Sirection of the current*;, and trims "his
«nd suljusts his tackle to meet the.
rury of the storm: 3'ersons Jivinffat.^'
•afstance firom the negro might" well theo- •
fize concerning the, negro :• let them rest
assured that men of their " own race
tvbuld administer the law, ain3 administer
"t effectively, and not improperly. Hebe
lieved the simple requirement that' a ne
gro should have to run the gauntlet of
an understanding clause would prevent
his attempting to i - egistcr.
The speaker said frankly lie could not
nive assurance that the understanding
would not be improperly used by whites
against whites. But ho did not believe
it, would be. He' knew that politics was
hard to keep pure. Why, away back
yonder in the forties Edgar Allan Toe
had been worked, to death "repeating"
•m election day in Baltimore.
In the./ 'course of his speech Mr. "Wat
aon remarked that only six counties w«st"
af the Blue Ilidge had voted to have a
;ie\v Constitution and that probably no
greater number -would vote to ratify the
new Constitution, even if it should 'flave ;
the Decalogue in it. -and bear, upon it the
•mprimature of inspiration. The conven
tion would have. to depend upon .Kastern
Virginia for ratification of the new Con-.
vdtution, and the plan of suffrage agreed
upon must be sufficient to relieve them
vntirely of the evils of the negro in
ixrtitics. ._
Mr. .."Watson's peroration x/f's very elo
quent, and he was liberally applauded
when he sat down at 9:40 o'clock.
The conference suspended ; the rule
under which it would have met Monday
and adjourned to meet Tuesday
hlght, at which time Mr. Wise willspeak.
The majority plan oi suffrage will not be
presented more entertainingly -than Mr.
Watson has presented it. He is a speaker
of wonderful command of language,- and
besides haH a most pleasing mannor of
delivery. ]t is very doubtful if any man
in the convention lias" given the subject
of suffrage closer study than he. has.
The feature of theS-ressinn. of the con
vention yesterday was Mr. Glass's resig
nation from the Committee on Kduea- ,
tlon. The convention unanimously re- j
fusod to accept the resignation. Mrl". fSloss j
?aid he took the action which he j
<^d as the result of the colloquy Thurs- I
flay between the chairman of the. com- I
wittee, Tier. Dr. MclHvaine, and himself, ;j
In the course .of which the former had
accused him of attempting to "dominate
ihc convention." - j
Mr. Glass tendered his resignation soon
after the convention assembled. H e said
-i" took the action he did after mature
deliberation.: He felr that in view of the
occurrence of -„ Thursday • he could not J>e
°f further use- on : the e«immiit<-e.
Mr. Wescoit mov*-d the acceptanoe of
the resignation, and Mr.'. Meredith movy-d.
'Nat it be not 7 accepted; Mr. Thornton
ma do a reference to the excellent
work Mr. Q] ass had done on the coiii
niittop. and expressed the hope that the
r-^ifmation would be- withdrawn.
■Ur. Mcllwaine exprecsod his deep' ve
*l'f*t at the occurrence. The expression
used by Mr. Glass, of "positive, aggros-.;
sive. .- hostility" towards the University'
°f Virginia «>n t lie'. part of tlu* denomina-;
'ional colleges «>f the State called for /a
d'.'tiial, as he, occupying' the position of
