COLLECTOR nOSWELL'S SPEECH
A meeting of the clttuni of the Seventh
ward wat held Uit erenlog at Island Hall,
to eonstdsr tbe question of changing th
form of Ihe present government of the Dis
trict. The meeting was called to order by Mr.
F. A. Boswell, who tald that the meeting wm
called Irrespective of party to cooslder the
question now agitating the community,
whether It wai for the Interest of tbe Dls
trlct to chance tU form of government to
that of a territory, it waa proposed to hold
an adjourned meeting some days hence to
discuss tb qnesllon. He Dominated Reuben
Bacon m chairman of tbe mertlog, and be
took tho chair. Hexekiali Edwarde secre-
da motion of Dr. Boyd, a commute of
ibree waa appointed by the Chair to draft
resolutions to be submitted at tbe next
meeting, and Meaart. r. A. uosweu, a.
Watson and M. T. Walker were named as
Mr. Boawell wished tbe meeting to dis
tinctly understand that tbe Qnettlon to be
coeetdered was not of a partisan nalur.
Ila most reapectfnUy declined serving on
the commltte. lie was a corporation offl
cer, and while he should not yield bis prlvl
lege to disease tbe question, he eould not
serre ol the committee. It would not make
any difference to tbe cltlxcns what report
the committee might make, whether In
favor of or against a territorial form of gor
ernment. It would be for tbe meeting to
accept or reject tbe resolutions offered by
Mr. Boyd thought tbe declination of Mr.
Boswell should not be received1. It had
been left for the Chair to appoint, and he
could not see why Mr. Boswell should not
Mr. T. T. Fowler thought Mr. Boswell's
objections well founded, and the Cbalr
should accept his declination.
Mr. Boswell said be bad several days sine
expressed bis opinion In open meeting of
what be thought of the territorial scheme,
and a one of the city editors had replied to
his remarks, be might hare occasion again
to express ibe same opinions he bad at a
meeting In tbe First ward.
Tbe Chair subsequent)? appointed Mr. T.
T. Fowler to All the vacancy, and on mo
tion oi Mr. uowen. ma commutes was in
creased to Ave, J. F. N. Wilkinson and W.
J. Walker belog added to tbe committee.
In response to the Inquiry of a colored
Toter, Dr. Boyd explained the nature of the
proposed form of government. Ho said It
was a Democratic scheme to deprive the
colored men of the right of franchise a
peculiar trick to cheat the citizens of (he
rights conferred by the charters of the cor
ttoriilona of Georgetown and Wasblnttton.
lie believed la representation, and w.) down
cm monopolies of every description.
Rev. J. W. Green could not see what tbe
meeting waa to gain by talking, unlets tbe
subject was definitely slated. Until the
proposition was squarely presented, be was
opposed to biasing tbe minds of the colored
people. Why not bare tbe bill, and discuss
the merits of the question. lie was tired of
the way things had been going on. Tbe
people bad not been properly Instructed, and
he was opposed, earnestly opposed, to this
one-sided wayofconsldertogmatters. Again,
he sold the meeting was not prepared to con
alder or understand the territorial govern
ment scheme. He hoped tbe meeting would
not applaud fair words. That was why the Re
publican party was in confntlon. Tbe lead
era have deceived tbe people. They told
tbem things they never Intended to doj that
waa what was the matter. It was proper to
defer tbe subject until tbo meeting was ready
to act Intelligently.
B. A. Douglass was Id fator of a U'ritorlal '
form of government If all the officers were
elected by tbe people, otherwise he should
advocate the present form, preferring of two
evlleto choose the least. Tbe plan of Brown
A Co. was a direct blow against tbe rights
of tbe clttxens of the District. It was got
up by wealthy aristocrats, and be warned
the colored people to beware of tbelr sugar
Mr. P. A Boswell said he had heard In
lb Mrir rmrt of the meetlnir that some
gentlemen favoring the territorial form of
government wouia db prucat w uuchh u
question. He wanted both parties to be
heard In fair discussion. lie was la favor
of the present form of government, as tbe
best and ooly one tbe peoplo could eierclse
tbelr rights under as 'citizens.
The preceding speaker had said truly that
tbe bill proposed tbe President should ap
point tbe Governor and upper Board, and
tbe people should elect tbe lower Board.
Having told that. It was all that could be
said. There were aome minor offices to be
filled, but tbe malor part of tbe bill was
comprised In the appointing power of tbe
President. The same gentlemen that bad
for tbe past three years been endeavoring to
n tti MmmlulABUn' bill thrnno'h Can.
gress bad suddenly made tbelr appearaoee
as the schemers of a Territorial form of
government. The aame gentlemen composed
the board now that had been united In times
past la urging the government of the District
ne could tell tbe meeting that all the gen
Uemen composing that board were not Dem
ocrats. There were men to It who claimed
to be good Republicans as good as tfas
blackest man In tbe city of Washington or
Georgetown. Well, men were entitled to
tbelr opinions, and be could always respect
those who frankly avow tbelr sentiments.
As for himself, according to his own con
victions he should endeavor to support tba
-loM. and hnnnd he WO aid always b foaud
on the side of lasllee, whether tbe presesao
ported him or not. Now, If the commit
aloner form of government Is correct, why
did they not ask you, fellow-eltlsens, to act
and confer with them then t Did they do It t
Ton then had the same rights you now
enjoy. Wat not your opinion won a tome

they found the doors or Congress closed
against them, and that without the people,
tbe popular voice of the roters,was heard In
rnr of their peculiar scbemei not until
then did they condescend to ask your sup
It bad beta said the bill was imperfect be
cause it was hastily prepared, lie knew
tbsre were many things In It open to crit
icism, but the speaker said be knew tbe bill
was carefully drawn up. It was Quietly and
leisurely dlsenssod, and this devil was con
ceived la tbe real estate shop of Kit bourn
and Latta, up on Seventh street, and at
their own appointed time allowed Ibe free
dom of tha DLatrlct. Why was it. If tber

appealed to a few dlttatitned Republicans,
and hoped In that way to gain tbe sympathy

He wished to say a fw words on the sub

Seventh ward Citizens. If a man come be

approve, treat him a you would wtsh to be
treated in the same noalrJon. bnt da not
sanction disorder and disturbances.
Let it not be charged against the colored
men of the Seventh ward that they defy the
officer of tbe law la disturbing the peaceful
meetings of.th citizens of Washington.
Dispatches, truthful and discreditable to this
city, bad gone abroad detailing the particu
lars of the mob-ltke conduct of men who
bad prevented their fellow-cltliens from
holding meetings, lie did not want such
charge to go forth that Republicans were
enemies of free speech that they set them
selves against the law and defy tbe officers
to arrest them for tbelr actions. He could
tell such men there was a law to protect
pHDiiQ mniiugH, una it win oo euiorcea.
It belongs to the dignity, tbe good name
'the Republican party that It should be
enforced. He advised the voters of the Ber
enth ward not to participate with those who
nave nrougnt aiscreaii upon me party ty
encouraging such conduct, but to keep down
disorganization and condemn all who array
themselves as disorganize!, n would
pieoge to me aavocate or tne Territorial
form of irovernment that If they would attend
tne meeting on rriaay mgni tney wouia
hare a respectful hearing.
He trusted that erery cltliea would attend
tbe meeting, and asked those present tola-
rite ineir neignuors to do present.
Mr. T. T. Fowler thought tbe question
should bo discussed calmly and fully. He
was opposed to a territorial form of govern
ment. The history of the territorial gov
ernments were that tbe gorernor was Inva
riably appointed from the States, and sneb
a form of rovernment would ctrtalnlr be
obnoxious to tbo people of the District.

point all delegates and all committees,
which was met with loud crlee of "Lay It on

Mr. C. White sail that the mover of this
resolution might be a tool of S. I. Brown,
and have tots for sale. The resolution was
an Insult to the club, and It was offered as
sneh. Instead of being laid on tbo table It
ought to be put Into the store or thrown ont
of the window.
Mr. Gaines said the resolution was to pre
vent misapprehension on the part of tbe
working classes Juit about tbe beginning of
the campaign, and It would prevent meet
ings from being packed to carry certain
points, as often had been tbe case before.
Mike Shiner characterized the resolution
as a trick to prevent Bowcn delegates from

he would not like to take the retnontibUItr

Mr. Galne refused, and tha resoInUan was
then laid upon tbe table.
Mr. Galne then mored to set asldo the
vote, but was overruled, and Mike Sblner
then pitched Into blm. He said there were
two men whom he had worked hard for, but
woo had now practically left the club. They
were here present, and they bad been em
powered to reconstruct the party la tbe
f Cries of "Call the namot!" when a mem

After debate as to the probability of Ar
cher Fletcher pettier the contract for trad
ing Thirteenth street east, Mr. Champion
took tb floor and hauled Mike Shiner orer
the coals for saying at a meeting a few
nlefats sine that he was opposed to mixed
schools. He said that the colored people
who were of that oplolon should keep II to
tbtmselres, as, by expressing It, they would
only Injure tbelr party. Let the white peo
ple fight It out.
Mike Shiner, whose blood was rankled by
these remarks, said that he was opposed to
mixed schools, as It was a wrong principle.
He said that you may talk aa you pteaoe,
