got filling operating a to in a in shoulc sympa relevant the a case hac o: the m REPUDIATES THE LEAGUE. Ei-gnpervlnor of Election* Aitwood Can Find Wo Ground to Stand Upon. WASHINOTOK, Sept 12.--Mr. H. C. Astwood, formerly supervisor of elections elections in Louisiana under the Wells- Anderson returning board, who was nominated by President Cleveland al the extra session of congress as at Calais, France, and was rejected the senate, has written to Mr. C. Taylor, the recorder of deeds of the district of Columbia, president of the "Negro National Democratic league," tendered his resignation as chairman of the executive committee of that organization. In his letter Mr. Astwood says: "After the outcome of our splendid convention at Indianapolis, the grand est of its kind ever held in this country, I had hoped that negro meant something. I was inspired by the ability, the patriotism and of some of the best minds of the as expressed in that dignified body hope that a bright future awaitec us; but it has all vanished like a beautiful dream. The action o: the congressional committee in sustaining sustaining an organization under the ditions openly condemned by Senator Faulkner himself, and the action of the national administration toward grÂ« democrats, makes it impossible me to be an active worker or deceive and dupe a race without tangible evidence of the principles ask them to espouse for the betterment betterment of their condition. Consequently I can find no ground upon which stand."
