THE BOODLE CONFERENCE. In another column of this paper paper will be read with interest ihe true inwardness of the late Indianapolis Indianapolis e- nfirnce. It can be BPen that the motives of some of the participants weie corrupt and personal aggrandizement is the secret of the whole. vVe are of the opinion that Mr. J. Milton Turner, has done the. Cherokee Freedmens bill everlasting harm. He ought to huve adopted other methods to have passed his bill through Congress. It is indeed base ingratitude on his part to at tempt to mislead an injured I people. What inducements have ueeu offered to the colored voters, by the democratic party? The conservative negroes, in the departments, departments, under this administration administration are doing the negroes an injure injure and even Mr. Turner declared tr Mr. Pharor, the spcretarvof the National democrat-c committee, that not one iu the late Indianapolis Indianapolis conference could tell why he was a democrat. Any man has a right to change his opinion otmen and measures, but in changing there ought to be some tangable grounds upon which to base such a change and it should be of such a nature that would benefit his fellow man. It will be seen that it was the intention of the movers to mislead te colored people from the begiu- ing.t If colored men want to become democrats and support that party, they are at liberty to do so, but, they n ust not attempt, by fraud, to misrepresent the massess.

'' C H. J. Taylor, asserted that Trotter and Turner are new con-vertt-; that the president Selected the wrong men to serve him. Trotter showed hiB ingratitude to his lieutenants on their return from Indianapolis. He denounced denounced the conference as a disgrace, and even declared that it surpassed surpassed the late W il lard hall, con ven. tion.f Trotter is right in this, because not a delegate who look part in the Willard Hall convention,, convention,, attempted to shoot any one, as Ogilive did. The question that must be Bettled, is, did the president president request Trotter to call this conference ? Turner of course is & good, ijello.w and personally we consider him a good man, but politically he is dead. He lost &b prestige in the republican p&rty and left it to join a party iu which, he is not known.
