Concerning this question there is un

"but since Mr. Lincoln uttered those

I declare it to be true that in all the
five fundamental subdivisions of society
the colored people are in the full enjoy

tial laws. to wit: As husband and wife:
as parent and child: as guardian and

hundred years of slavery in which they
toiled and they hold in grateful remem
brance the recollection of their idelity
and loyalty when our fathers and brot h
ers were struggling on the field of hat
tle for Southern independence. Every
white man now livingt on Southern soil
who lived during the days of slavery
shares in this feeling of gratitude to his
colored friends. 1 well remember my

fant head. and her voice though un
trained and untuned, sweetly sung the
lullaby to my infant slumbers.
"As I attest it here, the spirit, of my
old black niammy from her home up
onder looks down to bless, and through
he inspiration of this night. steals the
seet music of her croonings as forty
ears ago she held me in her black
arms and led me smilingly to sleep."
This is the universal sentiment
among Southern white men. Hence we
bid them God speed in all that relates
to their up-lifting in mind and. resourc
es, and we welcome them to the acquis
ition and enjoyment of property, with
the right to hold or dispose of the same
by deed or devise. We encourage them
in every endeavor they make towards
the up-lifting of their race by the educa
tion of their children: and in justifica
ion of this statement I point -:o the ex
,lusively colored school house standing
in every township in South Carolina,
upported practically. exclusively by
taxes paid by white people. In every
township of the southern states is the
ieparate colored church, where they
worship God according to the dictates
Af their consciences; and these churches
were built in large measure by contri
butions by white people: and around
these places of song and prsyer the si
lent and unseen sentinels of the law

t is as much a violation of law to dis

is to disturb the worship of a white

friends enjoy the same privileges and

The Hon. John Beattie Crozier, his
rian, political economist and philoso
er, author of the "History of Intel
ctual Development," "Civilization
id Progress," "The Religion of the
uture" and other books holds the neg
:ive and he states the question thus:
"The issue is, what amount of weight
s to be attached to all attempts (for
whatever reason) to mix antagonistic
races, colors, creeds and codes of so
aial morality on the same area of po
litical soil. The general opinion of
the world is that these mixtures may
be safely permitted provided always
Ihat the government in power will see
:o it that strict justice is done alike to
ill races and creeds concerned with
>ut fear or favor."
Now what I venture to affirm on the
ntrary is that of all the pbliticaf
rses which can befall a nation this
ixing of inherently antagonistic races,
>lors, creeds and codes of morality is
e one which, when once it has been
lowed (it matters not for what reason)
of all political complications the most
remediable by any and every known

"And the reason is as simple as it is

.t descends, with its lynchings and
omicides in its train to the level of
oarbarism again. My contention, in
>ther words, is that the apphecation
of pure justice to these mixtures can
aever get a foothold at ill, but will be
blocked at every turn from the start;~
and that to imagine or expect other
wise is of all delusions and Utopias the
most hopeless, besides being fraught
with the most terrible consequences

In reference to the third conditio
