bur muct hearty applause as the

Hon. M. F. Gilbert called the meet
ing to order and said the committee
of Fifteen had suggested V. H.
lluette us temporary 'chairman-. Mr.
Ilcette was accepted by the as
semblage and Prof. T. C. Clendenen
wns chosen secretary, Prof. Iiannis
ti t tn-asi rer.
Chairman Huette made a ringing
little speech setting forth the pur
p;es of the meeting and the need of
thx organization propose.! to be

tlve people of Cairo were ready to
take action In the mutter. Some aaid
It would be impossible to check the
election frauds but he believed It

Wffo going to help In the movement.
Mr Huette grew eloquent when he
appealed to the latter, referring to
tie- five thousand graves at Mound
CHjv National .'cemetery, where lay
thai many men who had left stricken
hearts at home to fight for their
country and for the negro's freedom
the rivers of blood hit I ad flowed
and the mountains of money it had
cost, to gain this end. He asked
what these five thousand men would
say if they were told that all thdr
sacrifice were made only in order
that the negro might hawk his bal
lot about the streets on election day.
He did not believe the negroes pres
ent would stand for that state of
tblns but wonld help to the extent!
of their ability to correct the evils
coin pla ined of. There were shouts of
apj roval from the negroes present.
lion. Walter Warder said he was
present becarse he wished to lie with
th; uheep and not with the goats,
win never there w as any chance for
it,' and this movement certainly c;ii
bivced the sheep, and he wished to
have his name on the list. He be
lieved the Illegitimate spending of
money waa the greatest evil: any
evils in the registration or in the
counting of votes could be easily
reached by the appointment of good
men as election judges and clerks,
and by agreement between the two
pclitlcat organizations; but the buy
ing of votes was the greater evil and
was more difficult to reach. Or

In full sympathy with the move

Walter H. Wood, chairman cf the
li( Pfblican county central commit tea
and one cf the committee of fifteen,
assured the? meeting that the charge
i:.:;de by some people that tie? move
ment was started by people who had
axes to grind was untrue. Not a
member of the committee was a can
didate for any office; so far as he
km w not a in.n connected with the
movement had any purpose except to
correct the election evils that had
been complained of. It cost too
much money to run for office In
Cairo. He relt that to reach th? evil
would be "a treinou.lous job," and if
the good people were not any mote
active than they were at elections
they would not succeed. One great
trouble had been that so few citizens
lock any interest in their elections.
There were never more than three or
fcur In each ward who would give
any time to the elections.
At this point Chairman Huette in
terrupted t lie speaker with a call to
ail who were willing to give one day
to election work to stand up. Every
Mr. Wood continuing said if citi
zens took more interest in their elec
tions there would be less corruption.
Tin re were no men more afraid of
going to the penitentiary than the
politicians, and if they knew they
w re being watched, they would be
careful. He knew bad things had
hi en done by the Kepulicans, nut uie
other fellows had not been awleep.
Five hundred negroes had gone to
the polls and sworn they cotna not
read or write and permitted the judge
to n aik their tickets for them. They
knew they were swearing a ".1 d
lie- when they did this. Laughter
and applausel. He felt sure he could
h eak for the Republican organiza
tion and say they would aid in the
movement as far as possible. He
hoped the movement would not be
perniitted to die.
.1 S. Aisthorpe made a fervent lit
tl. speech heartily endorsing the
movement. He said it made no dif
fcinice if other cities were bad also,
or wotse; we had to act for our
selves We wanted to be assured
that our candidates for office will be
elected by the people, not by ihe cor

that officials should be honest if they

much as a-i office was worth In order
