  • By 89 votes to two the meeting passed the following resolution:”That the meeting condemns as utterly shameful and foolish the terms of surrender now offered to the rebels,exempting murderers from prosecution ,and records lack of confidence in the War Council,the conviction that its membership must be changed,and that exemption of murderers from prosecution must be terminated forthwith.”
