Tillman's Philippic -Against
Benjamin Rvan Tillman of Sontli
Carolina, ore of the most powerful
and fearless men in the United States
Senate, expressed as much of his
opinion regarding the negro as could
be crowded into two hours at thp
Dreamland rink last night. Tillman
is master of invective as well as of
argument and he convinced the largo
part of the 3000 people who heard
him thai the negro is hopelessly in
ferior and never can be brought up to
the standard of the white man within
an appreciable time. For that rea
son, Tillman stated flatly, the South
ern States will take great care to see
that the negroes will never have an
opportunity to rule the South, no
matter how many or how well etlu
cated they may be. Tillmnn also de
clared that Hooker T. Washington is
a man of brains because he is half
'You have been havinsr race
trouble here with the Oriental race."
said Tillman. "How would you like
to have the Mongolian races dominate
you and elect your State and oitv
oflicers because they were superior
in numbers, while you own"d the pro
perry ana had the brains And vet
you expect us to allow ourselves to
be overwhelmed by the negroes, who
are far infei ior."
Senator Tillman then went back
into history and showed how far down
the scale of civilization the negroes
are compared with the Chinese and
Japanese, who, he said, have a civili
zation of their own and are an ad
vi ncuu race, winie me negro is as
far below them as the baboon is be
low the negro."
"You Yankees brought the ne
groes to this country for your own
gain,' said Tillman, "and now we
have to pay the penalty by living with
them. You are mistaken if you think
we want them or would be unable to
till the soil without them. They are
as a rule a lazy, good for nothing
crowd, and if they could all bp re
moved from the South and white men
substituted it would be a great boons
Ihe negro can never become
equal to the white man because the
negro women are immoral. They are
not immoral because they do not have
any morals at all. They are as bad
as the women of Newport who switch
husbancjs every other day. They have
a mcther love, but it is not what we
know, and their lack of advancement
alone will keep back the whole race,
so that it will never be equal in any
way to the white.
"We are educating the negro and
putt ng him in a position to vote, but
we will never let the negro rule us,
no matter how much he knows."
At the end of his address Tillman
called to all men who thought the
negroes as good as tfie white to stand
up. One man rose, a negro, who de
ceived Tillman into the belief that he
was a white man, as his color was
light, but after Tillman had had the
laugh turned on himself for asking
the negro if he would let his daughter
marry a negro and learned the fact
he said contemptuously, "Oh, you are
an octoroon. I know your kind."
Where Did W. H. Wright's Signa
ture Come From.
Where is Wuhiam II. Wright, the
absconding treusi.rcr of the Territory
Some one must be in communication
witli him.' He acknowledges service
of summons in civil suits. He con
sents to judgement. Documents over
his signature come mysteriously into
court. But his whereabouts remain
the same mysterious secret as ever.
Late Wednesday afternoon Judge
Robinson entered judgment against
hiM and the other defendant in the
suit of John Wilson v. William H.
Wright and Healthie K. Wri-dit. de-
feidants, and Bishop & Co., m the
Bishop Trust Company, garnishee.
The suit was begun Feb-uary 7, :iU7,
by Smith i Lewis on behalf of WiUon
who is a resident of Ottawa, Canada,
on a note for $1000 dated, Honolulu,
May 27. 1002, made by , William H.
Wright and Healthie K. Wright, and
hearing seven per cent, interest.
Bishop & Co. and the Bishop Trust
Company were made garnishees and
it was allege 1 that they owed the
defendants moneyor that they had
money belonging to the defendants in
fieir possession. Deputy Sheriff Jar
rett made services of the summons
ou the garnishees the day the suit
was tiled. Heallhio K. Wright by
her attorneys, Magoonti. Lijfhtfoot,
tiled on unswer denying all the
allegations of the complaint at 7:30
o'clock p. tn., March 1, 1107. There
is no return of service on either of
tjic defendants and not even a return
that they cannot be found In th
in-i-'i:rtion. there l- iinlhii ir to hi
dionto in the papers in the case, that
the paper were ever given to the
sheriff ot any officer to serve on the
defendants. Hi-hop A Co. died an an

February 7, 1007, they had received
from the Perpetual Trustee Com-
pnny, Sydney, a remittance foi

and costs, Ithey wen- authorized to
pay to William II. Wright. The
Bishop Trust Company Tiled an an
swer declaring tliat it owed the de
fendants nothing and had no funds
belonging to them in its posses.-ion
these answers were filed March G,
From that time on to October 2,
1007, there seems to ha.-e been noth
ing done in the case. On October 2.
as appears by the file mark, there
was tiled an acknowledgment of ser
vice of summons. in the case, and a
consent to judgment signed by Wil
liam H. Wright and Ilealthie K.
Wright, each in a different handwrit
ing of the individual whose name is
signed. The pa per is dated August
111, 11)07, b:;l no place where it was
dated was given. There is, nothing
on the document or in it to indicate
where it came frr.rn, unless an hives
tigation of the paper .used and the
typewriter shown would give a clew.
It is as if it wafted down out of the
atmosphere; or as if someone reach
ed out into space and got it.
Then follows the decision of the
court giving judgment in f;vor of
Wilson and against the Wrights for
the amount of the uote with interest
and costs and attorney's fees amount
iug in all to $1112, and declaring the
payment of this amount by the gar
nishee to the plain I iff a good dis
charge of the garnishee as to that
much of the fui.ds held for Wright.
There is the bill of costs. The papers
are bound up in a filling wrapper,
and the case ia ended. The hearing
was before Judge Robinson after four
o'clock when the courts are usually
Where did Wright's acknowledg
ment of service and consent to judg
ment come from? Where is Wright?
Who is in communication with him.
Presumably there remains in the
hands of Bishop & Co. $824.20 of this
Sydney remittance. The Territory,
soon after the filing of the W.Kon
suit, began a proceeding itself, mak
ing Bishop & Co. garnishees to secure
any remainder there might be after
Wilson got his pay. That will pro
bably go to the Territory as the At
