Conservative Organization in Richmond

September 19, 1870


Thomas W. McCance has stepped down from his position of city superintendent. As a Conservative, the State Central Committee has called a hearing to determine what they plan to do in the wake of his resignation.


The State Central Committee of the Conservative party, having accepted the resignation of Thomas W. McCance, Esq., city superintendent, have determined to call together the committee over which he presided, and which did such efficient ser- vice in the Walker canvass, for the purpose of reorganizing and preparing for the fall campaign. We learn that the city com- mittee will probably be called together this week for the purpose indicated. Thorough organization and party discipline is neces- sary if we are to defeat Porter at the election in November.
