ing negroes were made to work, such
results would speedily follow as
would be felt and appreciated
throughout the South. Idleness is the
primal cause of lyix'hng, because, it
breeds a condition which creates
crime. Remove this condition and
crime, lynching and any ill feeling
between the races will largely decline.
It is the duty of the white mtn pre
eminently to uphold his own laws.
When a mob for any reason whatever
takes the law into its hands a blow
is struck at the very root of our civi
lization. The mob spirit is controlled
entirely by revenge and a total disre
gard for all the forms of established
law. This being true-and the state
ment will not admit of cavil or dis
pute-the very basis of all law is en
dangered, for disregard of one law,
for any reason whatever, must inevit
ably lead to disregard for all htw.
Lynehing almost invariably follows
the perpetration of a certain crime,
and this in late years has not been
confined to the South; hut lynehing,
besides being all that I say it is, has
not' proved effectual, the crime con

Special Courts, to be convened at

wlen necessary-some of these to be
efileient and intelligent negroes, these
are among the remedies which should
have our careful consideration.
Then there is a certain lawless ele
ment in the South which is without a
proper conception of the duties of
their citizenship, and this consequent
ly leads to a disregard of law. As a
result of this, these men have not the
proper regard for human life, more
especially the life of a negro. This is
the element which is the thorn in the
flesh of our citizenship, and this Ple
ment must be checked and cont rolled.
We must h)e just to all, and to this
clement, our effort.s to stop) the crime
of lynching must be directedl. We
must look this squarely in the face,
for-it is againist the traditions of the
South to shirk any responsibility.
The strongest element of our best
citizenship must assert itself-no
moral cowardice must be laid at the
door of the South. It is a hard ques
tion wvith which to grapple, but wve
should use our best endeavors to
solve its perplexities, and to meet its
responsibilities in keeping. with the
dligniity of our laws; to maintain our
heritage as a people, and to do the
right in the sight of God.
I have thought it necessary to touch
upon01 the race pl)hmlh att someW leng'th
here, because, as I said at the begin
ning of the bearing white immigra
tion has upon01 the solution of this
problem. You will see in what. I have
said that I have really beeni duseuss
ing the subject of immigration in its
most important aspect.
Many theories have been advanced,
but, as I have shown, they are theor
ies only and have afiorder no practi
cal solution. It no wvremains for us
to put into operation the only p)racti
cal plan which can be immediately
adopted., We must bring into, the
South, not hundreds, not thousands,
but hundreds of thousands of desir
able white immigrants, and thus make
this land literally a white man's
counitry, and thus remove forever all
suggestion of a raen problem.

If the subjectb of immigration, ago

the trobule and expense incurred. It
is greatly to be regretted that our re
