Weather Review for June.
Editor of The Tlmes-Dlspatch:
Sir,?-One theory '.hat. has been ndvanced
on tho very abnormal rainfall during the
past month and tho exceptional chilly
temperature for the season Is that tho
earth is out of Its true polar axis, swing?
ing It's north pole more towards the sun,
while its southern polo is grpatly de?
pressed. There may bo some reason in
this, though wo hope our good planet
will keep Its balance and not topple over
entirely, as Is said by scientists it once
did. However, incoming ocean steamers re?
port a greater number of Icebergs and
denser fogs in the North Atlantic, than
usual, showing that much warmer weath?
er has been experienced at tho non h
pole, causing rapid molting and break?
ing up of ice. In consequence; the north?
ern atmosph?re becomes saturated with
excessive moisture, which is waiter south
and precipitated In douse volumes as soon
ns the temporale regions of tho I'nlieil
titut'.s are reached. Whether there is any
truth In this cannot ho known; certain
it is, the elements have been greatly
out of their normal condition this soasen,
and so far we have had very little- real
hot sumnn'r weather.
The county of Albemarle has been vis
lied during tho month by three heavy
Cloudbursts, causing great destruction in
washing of lands, currying off fences,
bridges, crops and making roads almos)
Impassable. We have also had two of the
most severe hall und eloctrlo si onus
known in recent years, damaging the
ripening grain and fruits and killing
many cattle by lightning. Altogether,
the farmer htta been placed in u most
deplorable and gloomy condition, with Urn
loss of niuc.li hay and wheat, while tho
corn is vary backward, with the land loo
wet to keep down i ho grass,
Tho redeeming features are In a fine
after-grass crop and good spring outs.
Early peaches and apples aro becoming
plentiful, while late apples will be abun?

Slr.--11ie incendiary utterances of Wil?
mington's colored, preacher Sunday night
were simply Um expressions of liuued
passion md reckless fanaticism, Manv
of them he would find U difficult io prov.j
unil we find it difficult to hellere. To
cull onlv a few choice quotations from
the. volume of which h? took occasion to
deliver himself, we cl'e the following, -is
not only striking examples of "hot wind."

Sold by respectable wino dealers
but also flagrant violations of establish
and enduring truth
?,"T,he whi?i man in face of Ills boast
civilization, stands before my ?es t
night the demon of the World's ra.\.*.s,
monster incarnate;" "The white is
hoaton a fiend, a rnonfltros'ty befo
God; ule i,0gro js uns?f0 iiiiywliero
his country. Ho is the open prey .U ;
times of barbarians, who knott' no r
strnlnt and will not be. restrained
Booker T. Washington's chanty, h
inanity, advlco of forgiveness, love. 1
uustry and so on, will never bo roclpr
cuted by white men."
Now, at first blush, illedo and mat
other statements made in that speei
soeni only amusing. We are not frigh
ened at all that "white men" aro "moi
St?rs' und "demons" and "funds'! ai
monstrosities before God." Nor are v
going to hurry away at once to "dur!
est Africa" just to have the privilege i
Jiving with a race as far above tho Cai
cab?an "heathen" as savagery is abo\
civilization, or black Is above white. Nc
are wo going to pine away jusl boiMin
alter all of our ''boasted civilization'-' v
find that our beloved country Is inhabit?
by the negro race, as cultured and n
fined as tho Romans ever were, and tli?
wo are only tho barbarians, 'who kno
no restraint and will not bo restrained.
l\or are wo going to become green wit
envy just because tho negro rare ho
outstripped us and holds the position c
pre-eminence In the sisterhood of m
tions. which we long to occupy, whl!
wo ourselves are only "the. demon o? th
world's races," the black sheep In th
world's human flock?a horned, clover
footed, fire-breathing monster, horrible t
look upon and despised of men.
But whilo this is all very amusing, W
are compelled to look deeper and lear
how much of truth theso statements con
tain. Some of them aro not worth stor.
ping to notice in any really serious con
sldoratlon of the matter. For that th
white man i3 "the demon of the world'
races," or "a monster Incarnate," or "
barbarian," or anything elso which th
colored brother saw fit to call him I:
that Incendiary address, no sano man
black or white, or yellow or red, WOUli
for one moment consider with any degre
of seriousness. Such a statement, ani
all such statements, from any souro
whatever, would bo greeted by the civ
lllzod world with wild hisses, while 1
pointed tho flngor of scorn.
But there wero other statements. "Th<
negro is unsafe anywhere in this coun
try; "Ho Is an open prey * ? ? * o
barbarians, who know no restraint am
will not be restrained." This, also, 1;
too absurd to engage the serious atten
tion of anyone who makes pretension!
to sanity. The lament of the colore(
brother Is about a? sane as If a younf
girl, Miss >ishop, or any other, won
walking into the jungles of Africa ant
declared that her presence would mak<
it "unsafe" for the lions and tigers.
Lastly, "Booker T. Washington's chart
ty, humanity, advice of forgiveness, love
Industry, and so on will never bo reclpro
cnted." They will not? Well, In an
swer.'to that question, let us look bad
and see how far tho "white man" ha.'
already gone towards reciprocating nl
of these Christ-like qualities so abundant
ly manifested in the negro race. Let ui
suppose that in bringing the negro rac<
from tho lowest plane of savagery am:
placing him In a land where ho coulc
learn tho meaning of civilization, mid It
feeding and clothing him, nnd fin.Uly ii
bestowing upon him the samo pol?tica
rights which our fathers had won foi
us on many a field of blood and handec
down to us as a royal inheritance, wc
had all this time been Incurring a debt
of gratitude to him. Have we done any.
thing to pay that debt? Have wo don<
anything to "reciprocate?"
Let-ihe answer be that when we, th?
despised white race, had nothing, we tax
od ourselves, denied ourselves, to edu
cate, christianize, civilize, tho negro, not?
withstanding tho fact that It was ho wh<
had been largely responsible for the back?
ward position which w'o, as a section
held in the Union as well as for the
Ignominy which was subsequently heapee
upon us. Let it be remembered that,
starting after the Civil War with an
empty treasury and with a system ol
government which stifled business, wc
have given the negro $121,000,000 for his
education alone, to say nothing of what
has been expended to build for him
ehurches and to surround him with all
those Influences which make for botter
! citizenship and nobler life. Let It bo re?
membered that whilo we have been do?
ing tills, the negro has been committing
crime ajid even from the pulpit has been
upheld in It; and then let us ask tho
world, havo we "reciprocated?"

Reply to a Preacher.
Editor of The Times-Dispatch:
Sir,-1 notice In to-day's TImns-Dlspatoh
a. letter from "Citizen," who, you say, is
a well known preacher. 1 can't agree
with him In what he says of the general
feeling, otc. I will quote a part of his
letter: "Tho general feeling seems to be
that tho rioting and lawlessness of so
called sympathizers lwn -caused the
strikers to lose the sympathy of all law
abiding citizens." Now I would like to
ask Citizen If Im thinks tho preachers
"lost tho sympathy of all the ltw-abld
Ing people" when Mrs. Carrie Nation
smashed a few saloons? Mr,. Editor, 1
don't think the strikers had any more to
do with tho rioting than the temperance
people had to do with the saloon smash?
ing. Here is a parallel case. Who does
t itlzen blame lor Mrs. Nation's lawless?
ness, the temperance people or the saloon
people? If the temp?rance people, then
he has the right to say what h?i did say.
