Hinds County Gazette clipping

Text Item Type Metadata


THE SOCIALISTS. The papers are publishing the names of the members of our late Legislature who prefer that the whites and blacks shall be seated together at concerts, theatres, hotels, in railroad cars, &c., and who are in favor of assessing heavy fines against the managers of all such establishments who may attempt to prevent a free and easy commingling of the two races. The following is given as a list of the white men in the Legislature who thus voted:

Avery, Barrett, Brennan, Corcoran, Everett, Fisher, H T, French, Gill, Huggins, Holland, Hasie, Howe, Lindsey, Morgan, Sullivan, Willing - 16.

Abbott, Campbell, Gibbs, McClue, Morgan, Mygatt, Packer, Smith - 8.

It is proper for us to say, for the information of the people of Hinds county, that our entire delegation, Charles Caldwell, Senator, and Monroe Bell, William Johnson, (of Raymond,) H. T. Fisher, and Charles Reese, Representatives, all voted for this commingling of the two races and for imposing fines and penalties upon parties who might be disposed to prevent it.
