of the denial to any citizen or citizens who shall offer to vote, of the right to vote, on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude, his right to hold and enjoy such office, and the emoluments thereof, shall not be impaired by such denial; and such person may bring any appropriate suit or proceeding to recover possession of such office, and in cases where it shall appear that the sole question touching the title to such office arises out of the denial of the right to vote to citizens who so offered to vote, on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude, such suit or proceeding may be instituted in the circuit or district court of the United States of the circuit or district in which such person resides. And said circuit or district court shall have, concurrently with the State courts, jurisdiction thereof so far as to determine the rights of the parties to such office by reason of the denial of the right guaranteed by the fifteenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and secured by this act.

APPROVED, May 31, 1870.


No. 86. Redemption and Bank Note Act July 12, 1870

THE great inequalities in the distribution of the national bank note circulation among the States, and the action of the Comptroller of the Currency under the act of March 3, 1865, led to the introduction of various bills relating to the subject. A bill "to provide a national currency of coin notes, and to equalize the distribution of circulating notes," was reported in the Senate, January 11, 1870, by John Sherman, from the Committee on Finance, and passed with amendments, February 2, by a vote of 39 to 23. Various substitutes offered in the House were rejected, and the bill with amendments passed that body, June 15, by a vote of 99 to 81, 50 not voting. The Senate refused to concur in the action of the House. The report of a conference committee was disagreed to by the House, June 29, the vote being 53 to 127, 49 not voting. The report of a second committee was agreed to by the Senate July 6, without a division, and by the House July 7, by a vote of 100 to 77, 53 not voting.
