meaning that no women of questionable

ing- Invitation to Sit in the Case.
Attorney-General William A. Anderson
had not returned from "Washington at a
late hour last evening. His mission there
was to see Chief Justice Fuller, and if
possible secure him to preside over the
Circuit Court here next Friday, when the
! injunction proceeding- by certain- negro
I voters designed to restrain, the State
Board of Canvassers from canvassing the
vote in the recent election for Congress,
•will come up. It ..Is expected that
the Chief Justice -will be ■• here
and preside over the court. "Infor
mation from Washington last, night was
to the effect that the Chief Justice had
received the invitation to go to Richmond,
and that he had the matter, under con
sideration, but had not yeti announced
his determination in the matter, if indeed,
he has reached one.: The impression pre
vails there that. if no other engagements
conflict he will attend the hearing" of the
■Virginia case.
ITS IMPORTANCE. ... ... .'
The importance of the case is recog
nized everywhere, not only in its bear-,
ing upon, this State, Du't. likewise, upon
several other. Southern States. It is be
lieved that .if the Virginia Constitution
were overthrown it .would mean an" Im
mediate assault upon, the Constitutions of
all the Southern States, which have simi
lar suffrage, clauses. While there is gene
ral interest .'in this city concerning the
procedure and' the outcome, of the case,
there are bur few who anticipate that the
validity of the : Constitution will be men
aced seriously., by this proceeding. In
deed, the general opinion among both
lawyers and, laymen is that the injunc
tion proceeding will not reach a -stage
where -it will; be necessary to. pass upon
the validity of the new organic law. It
is expected that.it will end with the de
cision of the. question of. jurisdiction,-for
this is the first point, to be fought out.
Sound lawyers of this city are convinced
that the court has no jurisdiction in
this case.
In the event that the case were entered
into on its merits, there is. no fear on
the part of the framers of the instrument
that it will not bear.the closest scrutiny.
In order to invalidate the organic law it
will be necessary to show that ordaining
and proclaiming' the instrument was be
yond tho province of the convention ; or
that the law makes discrimination on ac-
CGimt of color, race, or previous condition
of servitude in its express terms. This,
the framers of the Constitution are confi
dent, cannot be done. The Constitution
was drawn with great care and modelled
on others which have stood the severest
judicial scrutiny. .-The utmost care was
observed in so drawing the suffrage clause
that it should be on the safe side and no
where encroach on. the Fifteenth Amend
ment. Some of the ablest lawyers in the
world were quoted. in support of the en
tire constitutionality of: th« article. In
order to avcid ever verging: upon contra
vention of the Federal Constitution it .was
decided not to embrace : a grandfather
clause. In its stead: a- military-service
'clause was"; drafted and adopted, based
on those that have stood, the test. Prop
erty, education, . and military-service are
the alternative conditions of suffrage. In
tho provision of the alternative itself a
safeguard was had against hostile judi
cial interpretation. :
No importance is attached to the issue
raised as to the right of the . convention
to ordain and of the Governor to proclaim.
If that right were, denied several of the
State Constitutions would be overthrown
and chaos in government would result.
That is the opinion of some of the ablest;:
lawyers in the State. > ■ ' ;: ::;: ; ■''■■
In the event that the question. of the r
validity of , the Constitution is gone into,
the impression is general among the mem
bers of the cor yen tion : that / even an ad- *
verse decision in the pending cases could
have : no other effect than, to : decideVthe"
individual r cascs on which the suit is
brought." ': Even if it iwefe 'established that
the plaintiffs in this proceeding were : un- .
lawfully deprived of their rights: as citi
zens, ft/wr-uld tut prove-Hhat tho VConstl
tutionhad net. been justly and fairly;ad
ministered,'. and not that it is not perfect"-,?
ly ..valid ;: when • administered according to
its express terms, "'. '...'.'. • ; _
f, The case will come up next Friday,; and
in- the event that Chief: Justice
ca h not preside, ; it ;is ■ ■ expected '\ that the
senior -judge -of -the circuit, Hcri. C. H.
Slmbntori, of South Carolina; may' do so.

in the effort to establish from the state :

many as.possible, and as few -white men
as practical le. ■... ■■ ■ . .
„On theVwhole, 'however, there Is, accord
ing to the opinions 'of g'ecd lawyers,., but
a remote prospect that' the 1 court will go
into the merits of the case, but that it will
dismiss the matter on the ground of lack
of- jurisdiction.

Reports of Salary In\-e.stiKatlns'
Con»n»ittce.s AlVill Be Interesting 1 .
It is said that there are many surprises
in r store .when the work of the various
committees on the rearrangement, of
salaries and duties of. officials and 'em
ployees of the city i? made public.
It is said that one of the
sub-committees, will report that thsre
are officials in the city. hall whose duties
are almost nothing. There are many 'who
are overpaid, whose positions could be
filled from, the outside by clerks: who
would be glad to do the work for half
the salary now being paid, and there
are some who do not receive salary suf
ficient' to compensate them for the ser
vices rendered the city. .
The committees will make a number of
recommendations as to -the re-arr;i ns-?
ment of duties in some of the departments
so that there will be no necessaity f«.r
increased salaries and to make less work
by different systems.
I There are five or six sub-committees at
work and the work is. being done in such
a quiet and orderly. -manner that not even
tht men in the departments know what is
going on. . ; . . . '
