A NOTABLE STRUGGLE
For Supremacy Between Whites and
Blacks In Carolina.
TO ELIMINATE THE NEGRO VOTE.
Campaign by Both Parties on Amend
ment totiie Constitution Imposing
an Educational Qualification
on the Colored Man.
Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 4. A local paper
publishes a sensational story from its
special correspondent, who has re
cently been In North Carolina to study
the campaign commenced there by the
white people, both Democrats and Re
publicans, to disfranchise 100,000 negro
voters in that state.
The article says: "North Carolina
has just entered upon one of the most
eventful campaigns in her history. It
is a death struggle between the Anglo
Saxon and the American, and when the
smoke of battle will have cleared the
state, the political and social suprem
acy of the white man of North Caro
lina for the time and for all time
will either be absolute and uncondi
tional, or else negro domination will
again immerse the state into Ignominy
"This campaign is waged on a pro
posed suffrage amendment to the con
stitution, submitted to the people by
the last legislature. It was designed
for the single purpose of eliminating
the negro as a political factor and it is
a notable fact that the) educational
qualifications enjoined on the negro is
not expected of the white man. It is
not intended that an Anglo-Saxon shall
"Every person of eligible age, who
applies for registration, for Instance,
must be ablo to read and write any
section of the federal constitution.
"Under this clause 100,000 incompe
tent negro voters in North Carolina
will be forever barred from the polls..
But the ignorant white voters and
there are perhaps thousands of them
can enter through another gate.
"Section five provides that any lineal
descendant of any voter In this coun
try, prior to 1867, shall be entitled to
vote whether he can read or not.
"It is more than a political fight; It
is a fight in defense of home and de
cency. It is a constitutional decree
that the Anglo-Saxon shall govern
this state. On this platform the De
mocracy stands. The Republicans have
challenged this amendment for party
protection. The issue has been joined.
For 30 years it has been dodged,
evaded, beclouded. It is to the point
now. It is the crucial test between
southern Republicanism and southern

Washington, Sept. 4.- The state de
partment has decided that It is not
feasible or necessary to send a war

this Is Portuguese territory it would
not be possible to send marines or
sailors across the country even were
It desirable to do so. Therefore the
department will rely entirely at this
stage upon the discretion of Mr. Mac
Crum, consul at Pretoria for tho hro
tectlon of American interests In the
event of war.
