Tlio Negro In uu Inferior Knee and Un
eUucntloiiulale and Hound to Dlo Out.
Atlanta, Ga., Juno 4. Tho Evening
Journal yesterday published an Interview
With ex-Senator Ttobcrt Toombs on tho
futuro of the negro. They are lilt views as
they would have been given In tho North
American llcvlew had not bad health pro
Tented tho preparation ot an article for that
lie eajs his speech on "Slavery" In Fre
mont Temple, Boston, Is as true to-day as It
was then, and will bo for all time. Tho no
gro raco Is an Inferior race. He was so cre
ated and It God had not Intended to make
him Inferior to tho white man ho. would
never have created him black. All history
shows him to bo Incapablo of governing him
self. Ho can not, thorofore, govern coun
tries nor anythhiL' clso. Speaking of hlmas
race, Mr. Toombs says tho position of
Bov. Dr. Haygood, that tho two races
must rise or fall together, Is very foolish.
Tho negro raco Is dependent on tho white
for everything, lie does not Uiink they can
bo educated. It will bo found, In tho end,
that tho negro, as a race, Is uneducallona
blo. Ho says education Is Increasing crlmo
among them. A negro Is out of his element
at tho blacklxurd, his natural homo Is tho
cotton patch and tho plow. Thcro he has
always dono best, thcro ko will always do
best As to tho future of tho negro race
In tho South, ho said:
It Is the plainest thing In tho world; ho
will dlo out. Ho Is dying out now. I think
I ought to understand tho census. I liavo
itmllod It enough. 1 tell you that It Is being
falsely Interpreted by certain peoplo In tho
country. Tho negro Is dying out as a raco, ho
Is bound to dlo out. That Is what will
bocomo oMilm. It Is the history of all in
ferior races ami here Is tliebroml distinction,
tho negro raco Is a scrub race, tho white raco
Is a thnroughbind raco. In timo tho scrubs
are bound to dlo out but the thoroughbreds

Scott think ho had become Insane and can
account for his robbery on no other grounds.
Two years ago they say that ho becamo
very sick with nn alfcctton of his stomach
and throat Tho bank gent him to Florida
and paid all his expenses. Ever slnco ho
has been cross, irrltablo and nervous and it
was a common remark nmong his friends

not send any word to his wife. His wife
knew nothing of his whereabouts. Pres

Scott speculated and ho could not tell why
ho had taken the money.

and If they do thcro will bo no uso for action
In the House, which has the necessary two
Uilrds majority. All tho Senators, except
McClurc, of Mercer, are here ready for a
