E. VV. Turner secretary. The chair

"We should be more than glad and
thankful to . know that we live in a
. State where we can meet under such
favorable auspices, without fear of
molestation, and take! counsel among
ourselves as to the best and most
proper steps to take to elevate the
standard of our race." He went on
to say: "Iet us prudently petition
- the President and Cabinet for a
proper and just recognition in all
things proper, though upon merit
and qualification only, as a portion of
' ' the body politic." j
A committee on "credentials, com
posed of. VV. V. Turner, James H.

which was gotten up land conducted
by colored men. I - -Rev.

The Convention meets again to-day.
George W. Price, of New5, Han
over, made the following i motion:
"Th at a delegation of fifteen be ap
pointed to go to Washington and
bear to the President the resolutions
and memorials passed by this conven
tion relative to the wrongs we have
-suffered and are stilt suffering at the
hands of certain white men now in
office." , ' - . "
There followed some earnest de
bate between Harris, Mabson, Rey
nolds, Kandolpb, Hill and rnce of
jiew iianover. tne latter taking a
very decided stand, saying that the
fight was against the white men con
trolling the patronage of the admin
istration in .North Carolina,! and that
the Convention had gone too far now
to grdV tender-footed and-nealy-
iiiomuea at mis siage or ine game,
and that unless their claims were ac
knowledged he would; not be respon
sible for the solidity of the colored
vote in North Carolina. The motion
was referred, to thej committee on
rules, which soon reported the foi
" lowing: . -y j
Resolved, That a committee of fif
teen, consisting of one from every
Congressional district, and seven from
the State at large, be appointed from
this Convention to visit the citv of
VVashington at the earliest day pos-
.noie, i or me purpose or expressing
the sentiments and conveying the
memorials of this representative body,
appointed in behalf of the colored pop
ulation of this State, and lay the same
before his Excellency the President
and his cabinet. i ' J .;"
, Resolved further, That all com
munications and petitions now exist
ing or to be created in. any of the
counties or districts praying the ap
pointment of colored men to offices of
profited trust'be forwarded to said
committee on or before the 15th dav
of June, 1881. t
The resolution was at once adopted.
In discussing the appointment of
this committee, Hill, of New Han
over, said that he wanted the com
mittee to consist iof the very beet ne
groes in the State. He wanted no
man there who could be bought off
by a fifty, dollar or other office. , .
O'llara endorsed all said by. Hill.
He thought the negro had ; been too
lorig figuring with broom and spit
toon. He wanted a negro at the
head of affairs deputies were played
out. -' :-'iAir : '.);.";...: '
Mabson said that it was due to
himself and others who thought with
him to explain the remarks! the Con
vention should have used in the lan
guage of the resolution passed. He
would yield to no man in devotion to
his race. " - ; .-,'.-. :.- ....
Dancy and Harris also spoke to the
anbject, making some telling remarks.
George T. VVaaaom, of Goldaboro,
hoped that no-personalitiea rwould-be-
jrj ; :
luuulgeu III , luai uu objjcioiuuo
would be cast on any v white office ,
holder in the State, but that it wpulfj
be a united effort of the representa
tive colored men .' of. North Carolina
to elevate their race and see that they
received a just.recognition in the di
vision of .the. spoils of .office. ' ;M'
. George Lane, of 'Pasquotank, said
that if the white ; Republicans were
indiscriminately repudiated, the col
ored men would never be anything
but hewers of f. wood and drawers.of.
water; and cleaners of spittoons.
A resolution of thanks was tender
ed Mr. W. P. Canaday, of Wilming
ton, for the stand he has taken in
favor of the negro, j
Stewart' Ellison, of Wake; intro
dnced a resolution endorsing Colonel
Ike Young, and advising his reten

p On Thursday morning, at 3 o'clock,
the Convention of African office-seekers,
which had bees in session two
days) and the greater part of two
nights, adjourned sine die. The ave
rage I attendance of delegates was
about one hundred.
The resolutions printed by us on
yesterday in relation to W. '. Uana
day, and endorsing CoL Young were
withdrawn last night.
A resolution returning thanks to
James H. Harris for opposing Gover
nor Holden as postmaster was amend
ed by striking out Governor nolden's
name, and merely thanking J ames a.
Harris for pressing the claims of the
colored race at Washington. It was
passed in that form.
The following resolutions, intro
duced by J. E. O'Hara, were adopted
unanimously, as embodying the sen
timents of the Convention:
Resolved. That the fonndation
principle which brought the Repub
lican party into existence was that
ot the equality before the law of the
Resolved That" this principle has
been ! persistently violated for the
past sixteen years in the election and
appointment of omcers by discrimi;
naung against: competent and deserv
ing colored men. 1 ,
Resolved, ,That as a matter of sim
ple iaet ice this unjust treatment
ought now to be suddenly and finally
stopped; that its continuance will
work barm; that Us discontinuance
will benefit all who ' rally under the
Republican flag. , j
Resolved, That airmen in power
in the state and nation in a matter
lending to elevate the negro race,
and to encotrrage that spirit and man
hood which should exist in a free
people, striving for recognition as
citizens of a common country, should
at once endeavor to right the wrongs
of which we complain, and take
measures to prevent their recurrence
in the: future; that this much is due
to the negroes, who have sacrificed
all save honor in defense of Republi
can principles, and the white men
who have allied themselves with the
Republican party of this State.
A resolution was introduced by
Hill, of: Newj Hanover, requesting
the Democrats to give the colored
people .due representation on school
committees and other places of trust
without.emolnment. A warm dis
cussion arose, during which the ques
tion was argued pro and con by Wil
liamson, Hill, Leary, Mabson, Was
som, Danoy and Harris. At the close
of the debate the resolution was
adopted by a close vote. . "
O'llara moved that the; executive
committee consistof eleven members,
including the president, which motion
prevailed. - ' - -
