Weekly Democrat clipping

Text Item Type Metadata


Those who anticipate a serious split in the colored Republican ranks, to arise from the bolt which occurred in the mob Convention last Thursday, will be disappointed. It isn't that kind of a fight, and will not produce such a result. McCary, Wood, Wilson, W. H. Lynch and Fitzhugh, who are the shrewd and energetic managers of the colored element here, will get them all straight very soon again under the banner of "War on the white Carpet-Bagger and Scalawag." But the thing won't go down well with the "Caucasians," because they are to be the victims of the crusade which has thus been fairly initiated against them, and many of them (not only in the eastern and seashore counties but also here) will repudiate Lynch upon the same ground that Lynch's friends repudiated Perce - should Lynch be nominated at Brookhaven. This is the only good result we anticipate from the bolt of Thursday.
