Tile race problem and social equali
ty arc questions likely to take care ol'
themselves, and the discussion of
them in thc temper UHually indulged
in is not likely to do any good, but
may do much harm. It may jeopar
dize thc agricultural interest ol" the
country, which it is to the interest of
every good citizon to encourage und
support. Tho white man has thous
ands of years thc start in the race of
civilization and enlightenment, and
he belittles himself when he expresses
a fear of Bocial equality, or of political
displacement. Our politicians and
would-be statesmen should get some
other stock ?a .rade with which lo
frighten the people. IL would be
better to intoxicate them with the al
cohol ol' false promises than to fright
en them with the cry of social equali
ty. The usc ol' any such stuir in a
public man is a true sign of demagog

Thc most interesting contribution
to the campaign literature of thc guber
natorial campaign has been made by
Hon. W. D. Gibbs, of Yazoo County,
one of the stanchest of thc true blue
Democrats, and who has long been a
recognized leader in Yazoo, a County
which has one of tho largest negro
populations in the State.
Mr. Gibbs speaks from his own ex
perience of thirty-odd years of dealing
with the negro as a factor in tho polit
ical economy of the State, and his
words, coming from a man as promi
nent as he is in a County as full of
negroes as Yazoo, will bo read with
the greatest interest.
"There is co excuse," says Mr.
Gibbs, "and no palliation for a candi
date, oven for thc legislature in a
white County, to stir up race preju
dice in Mississippi. We had enough
of that from 1865 to 1875. It was on
ly by great sacrifices that wo rostorcd

of a promise on our part to protect the
negro in his civil rights ad a citizen.
Every Stato Democratic platform siuco
18G8 hus promised it. Lamar, George
and Walthal havo all promised it in
tho United StateB Senate. Our Sena
tors and Congressmen have boasted of
our educational work for tho negro in
answer to the oharges of our Re
publican enemies. The white consti
tutional convention of 1890 put free
schools in the State constitution and
left the word "white" out of it The
negro ia a citizen of Mississippi and
the United States, and unless there is
a power among us able to thrash tho
United StateB a citizen he will remain.
If we wish to deprive him of educa

"Under the act of Congress of
March, 1870, under whioh we were ad
mitted into the Union, the oondition
was imposed that we should maintain
four months' school at least for all
the ohildren of the State. We have
very properly by indirect methods nul
lified the fifteenth amendment and de
prived the negro of suffrage under the
forms of the State and Federal consti
tutions. He has not kioked. Wo
have put him off the jury andjhe has
not complained. Now they aro raising

Just for votes. A base imitation of
Roosevelt. Roosevelt oan appoint
postmasters and make them stick if he
wants to, but there is no power to de
prive the negro of his schools. You
can exoite him, make him mad, and
perhaps get the votes of a few preju
diced people, but his schools and citi
zenship remain as long as white
schools and white citizenship exist

In his charge to the grand iury of
Amito County, Judge Jeff Truly dis
cuBBcd tho whitecapping evil from the
standpoint of tho farmers themselves.
Ho pointed out that tho disturbance
of labor and labor conditions was sui
cidal to tho farmers and was, besides,
an unmanly exhibition of prejudice
and bitterness. Judge Truly referred
to tho absurdity of the puerile plea
that there is any danger of the ne
groes ever becoming ablo to dominate
or dictate Stato affairs, or that ho
would ever compoto with the white
man as a land owner. Tho white
mau, bc said, controlled ovory single
branch of the government; he made
and administered the laws; every sin
gle officer in the legislative, executive
and judioial departments are white
men, and the control of the whi'e
man extends even to tho ballot box it
self, where the negro is not only ex
cluded from voting as a mass, but
must vote for a white man if he dooB
The judge then paid his respects to
the argument of danger of social
equality, whioh he said was tan insult
to the women of the State. He said
the negro does.not seek social equali
ty. "I have never," oontinued the
judge, "heard of a case where a negro
tried to foroe himself on a white
ohurch or association, but I have triod
and sentenced white men who have
degraded their social positions by at
tending negro associations. I have
never heard of a negro entering a
whito gambling house to participate
in tho game, but I have had to punish
whito men who were convicted of
gambling in negro gambling dens."

remarked, with a smile, that if Mise

Was ningi ou, April

at the Slate department today 'o ulk
to Secretary Hay about the work of
tho sub-committee which is to visit
tho isthmus to appraif* the value of
the work tho company is now doiiu'
on thc canal. It was reported to the
secretary that the company now em
ploys 150 engineers, about 45 medical
o lucers and about 1,900 laborers and
firemen on the canal. These are neajj
ly all at work in the Culebra out. Five
thousand dollars a day is a modest es
timate of tho money which the United
States will be expected to pay the
canal company for continuing this
Admiral Walker's estimate of the
number of men tobe employed on the
Panama canal when tho United States
formally shall have entered upon the
project is thi.ty thousand. For all
practical purposes, this government is
now engaged in tho construction of
tho canal. Under tho agreement sign
ed on March 3 by ecretary Uay and
Mr. Cromwell, the American represen
tative of the new 7'mama Canal com
pany, tho work of construction was to
be continued by thc canal company
until thc exchange of ratifications of
thojcanal treaty with the understand
ing that the United States should pay t
for suoh construction work.
Tho men now engaged on the canal
construction work aro principally Ja
maica negroes. One of the purposes of
the visit to the isthmus soon to be
made by a sub-oommittee of the pres
ent canal commissionis to supply labor.
The local labor supply is insufficient
to meet the demand. It is probable,
therefore, that laborers will be drawn

No White Racehorses.
"Why is it that we never see a white
racehorse?" asked aman who takes
muoh interest in usual things. "Did
you ever Fee a pure white racehorse?
I venture the assertion that you never
did ia all your experience in running
around over the country. No doubt
you have D?UU an iron gray horse now
and then, or a flea bitten gray, but
you have never seen a white horso
among the thoroughbreds of your time.
Mind you; I am not saying that there
is no suck i thing as a white race
horse. I am simply oommenting on a
fact whichi have observed, aqd a fact
which may have been no ti oed by oth
"I have seen a gray horse now an d
then. A few years ago I remember to
have made a small bet on a horse
named Boas, a sort of flea-bitten gray,
owned by a woman, who, by the way ,
was not redheaded. But during my
experienoe around race-tracks* which
is not as broad as the experienoe cf
others, the pure white horse, or any
thing approaching it nearer than the
gray, has been conspicuously absent,
and I have often wondered why. Of
course, there must be some good, deep
rooted reason for this extraordinary
faot. Bay horses, sorrel 'horses and
blaok horses are common enough st
the various raoe courses of the coun
try and they are in all shades so far as
these oolors are concerned. Occasion
ally one may find a horse bordering on
the clay bank in color, hone? with
blase faoea, or with white hinr? or fore
feet, or sometimes haying "other dis
tinguished color marks";
"But where is th? whito hors/*? He
is not at tho raoe traok, where races
are on the card, and they . are very
soiree on trotting and paoing traoke.

fact to men who are experts when it
comas to blooded horses, but I intend
to do so, and the very first well-post

him why it is that there are no white
race horses, and the reasons therefor.

As the tale runs "two young wo
men of Sedge wi ck.hi red a livery horse
with which to take a drive into the

the liveryman in answer to his pa

them replied : "Oh, no. There was
