This chapter discusses how, as a Mississippi delegate to the National Republican Convention of 1900, John Roy Lynch was honored by his delegation with being selected to represent the state on the Committee on Platform and Resolutions. By the chairman of said committee, Senator Charles W. Fairbanks, Lynch was made a member of the subcommittee that drafted the platform. At the first meeting of the subcommittee, the Ohio member thereof, Senator J. B. Foraker, submitted the draft of a platform that had been prepared at Washington, which was made the basis of quite a lengthy and interesting discussion. This discussion developed the fact that the Washington draft was not at all satisfactory to a majority of the subcommittee. The only amendment Lynch suggested was one which was to express more clearly the attitude of the party with reference to the enforcement of the war amendments to the national Constitution.
