In the midst of the convention, a "Rienzi" of Wyandotte wrote to convention president James M. Winchell concerning a potential threat to Winchell's life. The ill-will toward Winchell had been sparked by the convention's "silly and ill advised move to deprive Indians (who by treaty stipulation have acquired the rights of citizenship) of the right of suffrage with negroes."
