TO AID TflfE CONSTITUTION
I In- IrKinIn Document Mnj Jo to an
lliriilKtel IMectitrnte
RICHMOND Va Aug S it Is under
stood in this cit tonight tint an effort
will be raiili in the gubernatorlil conven
to rescind the notion of the Norfolk
convention of list jeir which ordered
tint the people vote on the question of
holding the constitutional convention and
tint the new constitution be submitted
to the people for ratlllcitlon -rejection
There Is now 1 stjons movement among
the members of the convention to have
the constitution submitted to an abridged
electorate
Wilier A AVntson a member of the
Constitutional Convention and Common
wealths Attorni for Nottowav Count
wis In the cit esterda and left here
last evening for a trip North He was
seen by a reporter and asked to define
his views on the work elone b the con
vention Mr Watson said
Wha do the Richmond delegates want
to do with the negro The have kept
silent on ever occasion that has arisen
to get rid of the black man In politics
They do not bfin to hive decided views
ns to what thev want done with the
negro f
Ir Watson thinks that the negro should
be entirely eliminated from politics that
his race will revpr be equal iwililcally
or lntclleetmllv to the Anglo S xon Ac
cording to Mr Watsons views the negro
Ins no right to ben politician or a voter
on the other hand he should pernlt the
white min to gnerunnd rule lite affairs
of State and nation without the old or
advice of the blacks air AVatson is In
favor of a scheme which will not allow
any ntgroes to vote He deel ires he does
not want to see another Gfie cast a ballot
In Virglnii
So far as the white man is concerned
Air Watson dTH nrtt want -him to be dc
rivd of a vote undtr any circumst inces
He wants it so led that the while people
will neit bo hampered when thi go to
the polls The iriale members of ever
famil who hive paid J0 In taxes
should be entitled li lite 0d nI1 ol
ditrs over sixty should be exempt from
taxation and allow ed te cat hlr billots
An educational yuallllcatlon seems to be
inslgnllietiut so far as It pertnins to the
vvnite voter in the ejes of Mr Watson
11 Is also In favor or exempting all men
from garnishment who tarn less thin
J5 per month
What do iou think of the scheme to
have district Judges throughout the
State nfis asked
I think it a good thing The counties
would save a greit denl bv It The drain
upon a count treasur to pa Its Judge
and Commonwealths attorney Is heavy
Sir Watson thlnksthat one Judge can
preside over the courts In a circuit of Jive
countIesind that tacit county would save
a large amount of money each month A
Commonwealths attorney has about three
dnjs of hard work in each month says
Mr Watson Sometimes not more than
one or two felony cases come before a
term of a county court and Jhe sefsion Is
of about two das duration
It has been learned here on what seems
to be unimpeachable authorlt that the
Constitutional Convention adjourned last
Frida In order to allgw the members to
visit their homes and be cnubled to go
to Norfolk next week to attend the
licrnatorlal convention In fact it is
knoyn that almost half the members of
the convention will go to Norfolk State
Si nntor Carter Glass Semtor Daniel
Messrs Watscn Wsor Withers Judge
Llarnes and others will be In Norfolk next
week
Delegate Jitteson of Huckingham
gives out the following Interview
As much as we desire haste the con
vention in Its action should not be un
n cessarily hastened in its Important
business The public and the convention
are both wprKing and there need be no
sort of dojbt about the fact that the right
of stiff nge will be properly restricted
The people In the last decade and even
longer both In the North and In the
South have gone through an evolution
Negro suffrage In the South has seen Its
best or rather Its worst das and Is
gone to return no more for many long
ars until its suffragans have learned
to perform the proper function of voters
The experiment has had a fair full and
honest trial under the most favorable cir
cumstances jnd It Ins proved an utter
and complete failure It has done greit
harm and has seriously retarded the
growth and prosperlt of jll the Southern
States of this fnlon It will be radically
changed by this convention In Virginia
Public opinion has crj stallizeel In the
opinion of the writer and the following
principles have been practicall agreed
upon as the proper b3Sls for a change
No manwl I be allowed to vote unless he
owns ard pas taxes upon J2U0 worth of
property rial or personal or both or can
tead and write the English language and
has thirty das or more before the elec
tion paid his capitation tax of ii but
with the exception of the capitation tax
these provisions must not appl to Con
federate soldiers and sailors nnd their
linenl male descendants To thee quali
fications must be added the fact that the
man who voto must be of sound mind
must never have been convicted of pett
laren or felony and must have resided
Jn the State twelve months and in the
count or cit In which he casts his bal
lot for six months before he can vote at
any election

Finkelsteln This sum had been denied
and there are those who say that Kjp

elsteln next set his figure at JiOO for set
tlement of the claim Afterward the sum
was again reduced it Is said to J400
which was demanded from the company
In behalf of Finkelsteln
