The Republican part] ought to be main?

the maintenance of the e?iual rights of
the negro. It has not always succeeds?!
In refunding out those rights In accord?
ance with the letter of the Consf'tutlon,
but It has accepted th?: responsibility,
and every member of tie party who Is
conscious of what It ought t<> stand for
Is ready to continue the fight for your
constitutional rights. Recently we ha'S
had an agitation concerning an amend?
ment to the ?'onstltutlon which "?.ould
affect th?; guarantees of life, liberty ar d
property that we have all valued fO
I highly, and which have COWS down 10 us
i from our ancestors. The Republican
party has set I's face like flint again-t
; any departure from a strict enforcement
I of these rights, t'nderstand me, my
i frl.-nds. I don't mean ?o ?ay that the
I strict enforcement of those right? has
| beep made possible. We are not perfect.
There are a great many defects among
them the defect with respect to the pollt
cal rights of the negro In the South. You
have not suffered with respect to your
property rights, your liberty and your
life except possibly In those in?ldent;il
cases of lynching where '? prejudice has
been excited. I.ut those are comparative?
ly few in number as compared with the
10.<XX),r?'K> negroes who ate her?.- whose
property rights ate maintained, whose
liberty is maintained and whose right to
the pursuit of happiness Is maintained.
No one can take your earnings away
from you. They are preset ved to you
whether you work In the South or In ?he
North. That your opportunities are not
I equal, growing out of race prejudice. I
! am the lust one to deny, and I have
, the deepest sympathy with you In know?
ing that you have to go on and encounter
the pr.Judlce and live it ?loara by show?
ing that you are useful members of the
community, and In compelling those who
would not otherwise do -..? to re'-ognlze
>our usefulness as members of society?
That Is your problem. You have to work
It out. 1? is hard, I know. It Is a great
burden, and you have my sympathy in
your effort, and In so far as the law can
make that easier for you, In so far as th?*
strict enforcement of your rights may
enable you to work ont your future, >ou
can depend up??n me, and >ou can depend
?pon the Republican party, to stand by
you. That Is what I feel, gentlemen.
I bellev the Republican party, as at
present constituted and as it Is going to
continue to be constituted, is the part'
to Which people of your race should look
for help As the titular head of tha?
party I have no he?ltatlon In promising
you every effort, on the past of tbOOS Whe

i can say. I cannot promise a millennium
and I -mnnot promise that things ar-- go*
