Take a Dig at Roosevelt for His Action in Discharging the Negro Soldiers Implicated in the Brownsville Shooting Scrape.

A meeting of the leaders of the dissatisfied element of the Republican party was held in this city yesterday, presided over by Dr. S. D. Redmond, with W. J. Lathan acting as secretary. The meeting was largely worked up through the efforts of Dr. S. D. Redmond, L. K. Atwood and P. W. Howard [son of Perry Howard] of this city, aided by some of the other prominent negro politicians of the State who have been on the outside during the Roosevelt administration. Roscoe Simmons, a native of Mississippi, but now holding a position in New York, and a Foraker enthusiast, was also a leading figure of the meeting.

The meeting was strictly a Foraker event, and it took the hardest kind of work on the part of the leaders to prevent a square out endorsement of the Ohio Senator for the Presidency. As it was the resolutions presented by the committee appointed to draw them up, and composed of L. K. Atwood, G. E. Matthews, J. H. Leverett, E. E. Howard, G. W. William, Roscoe Simmons, J. W. Harris, J. W. Randolph, Dr. J. M. Shampert and S. A. Beedle, had practically that meaning.
