Local Colored Republican Leaders Gather Around Perry Carson.

A number of local colored politicians assembled at Perry H. Carson's residence in Ivy City yesterday and talked over the republican situation in the District as they found it. Among Mr. Carson's callers were Eugene Welborne, J. W. Freeman, T. L. Jones, W. P. Gray, R. L. Waring, G. R. Chapman, Edward Chase, George Nixon, and other leaders in the various legislative districts, which hold elections every four years for delegates to the local convention, which in turn chooses men to represent the District at the national republican convention. The gathering talked over the effort being made to have the District republicans indorse Gov. McKinley for the next nomination, and it was unanimously decided that it was too early to indorse any one, and the movement in favor of the Ohioan was intimated to be inspired by the expectations its managers cherished of receiving financial help from those who had McKinley's boom in charge.

Samuel Jones and Lewis Willis, who are engineering the McKinley movement here, have called another mass meeting, to be held in South Washington Friday night, whereat McKinley resolutions, they say, will be adopted.
