Home Startling Figures nnd Facte.
CmciNKATf, May 20. At the session ot
the Presbyterian General Assembly yeettar
day morning, Her. Dr. R. H. Allen, Secre
tary of the Froedmen's Aid Society, made
strong speech following tho presentation of
tho report of that society. To Illustrate his
remarks ho had hung on the wall, back of
the platform, a map twenty feet long by
iweive ioei wide, snowing tho ratio of black
to white population In tho Southern States.
It was a very startling map, and when ex.
plained by the earnest speaker made I
strong and lasting Impression.
Here are few of his significant facta
Twenty years ago, at tho close of the war,
there were In the Southern States 8,947,00.
colored people, and now there are more thai
7,000.000. Then there were In Mlsslsslpp
820,000 negroes, now 650,000; then then
were In South Carolina 400,000, now mort
than 600.000. Fire hundred colored babies
are born In the United States every day.
The colored population of the United States
doubles every twenty years; the white popu
lation only once In thirty-five years. Eight
years will not have passed before the negroes
will be In a numerical majority In some ol
the Southern States.

the table they could have reached tho roof
without the ladder, the distance being only
