from. Richmond -yesterday. . His sharp
voice, with ; its :•; sharp nasal intonations,
arid, his dry, : sarcastic humor,; make his
criticisms of men and measures in poli
tics always more or less; interesting to
his constituents when he comes back
from 'Richmond,, and'; he.^talked' to .them
freely -yesterday, in = his ..usual acrid .vein,"
about the convention and its work. .
He says that there' seems, to >be only
one proposition /on which practically all
of the members are^agreed, -and that is,
If the Constitution .is. /submitted to "the
people it is sure to bej badly, beaten. ;-•"''
In f>Tjt,'he says.that if it were submitted
to;a;vote'of all .the members of the con
vention itself , it would' rejected, 7 as' many
of its most radical, provisions had been
adopted ■'by- 'the vote;' of the minority of
the whole membership.; r. ...
He does not think . that: the Suffrage
Committee will ever agree on a suffrage
plan.- ' '-"'.' ",.'■■„ . -
; In short, .he . saysf "There is one" thing
Lean now. say ._withoT3t;fear, of making a
mistake, and thiat is .that .the convention
