Hopeful Signs.

New York Evening Post.

Two hopeful signs as to the treatment of the negro question by the Constitutional Convention soon to assemble in Mississippi are found in recent deliverances by two prominent representatives of the race. G. H. Oliver, a colored Republican member of the last Legislature, delivered a speech at Jonestown a few days ago, in which he said that his legislative experience had taught him that the white Democrats are the true friends of the negro, and that, if the Constitutional Convention should be composed of the same material as the last Legislature, the interests of the colored people will be respected and protected.
