GOVERNOR WILTZ AND SENATOR
ELECT RANDALL GIBSON, OF
LOUISIANA, ON SOUTHERN
CLAIMS AND AI3IS.
PEACE BETWEEN THE RACES
ORDER AND CIVIL SERVICE
REFORM THE DESIRE
OF THE SOUTH
The following letter, written by
Governor Wiltz, of Louisiana, to a
gentleman iu Illinois, has been hauded for
publication to the New York World. In
connection with an interview, printed be
low, with Senator-elect Ihndall Gibson, of
Louisiana, it may be taken us the
voice of Louisiana in regard to the bugaboo
of the rebel claims, as well as sundry other
matters of great immediate public interest:
State ok Louisiana, Executive Df.p.,
New Ouleass, December 21, 18S0.
Wm. Van Norris, Saybrook. McLean Countv. Ill
Snt : I have received and carefully con
sidered your letter of September H and
the inclosed extract from a printed inter
view with "Judge Southworth," originally
from the Chicago Inter-Ocean. The words
put into the mouth of the Judge are untrue
from beginning to end in every particular
so aOsurJIy false that I cannot see what
good they can do to the Republicans in
Illinois or elsewhere. Yet, from personal
observation during a late prolonged tour in
the west and northwest, I am more than
ever convinced that, on the part of many,
deep and bitter prejudices are cherished
against the people of our southern states
which time alone can cure. They may sur
vive for a score of years longer among the
bigoted and ignorant, although generous
and intelligent northern people are getting
rid of sentiments so unworthy of them as
citizens of a common country
who should be at peace in fact as
well as in name. I must say here
that poop'.e who will believe one half ot
what Judge Southworth is represented as
havict: said are so grossly benighted that
no denial, no facts, no argument canchange
their notions. All the current charges made
against Southern white men by Republi
can speakers and writers are for the igno
rant classes only. These charges are easily
made, and for the past dozen years Repub
lican writers and speakers have shown
great invention in framing them and re
markable perseverance in urging them.
Rest aiiured, sir, that the supply will al
ways be equal to the demand, and that
there will not bo lacking manufacturers to
furnish or political hawkers to peddle out
these slanders against the Southern people
so long as they are knon-n to influence
ignorant voters. These reckless and gross
ly untruthly charges against us, although a
thousand times proved false-, will be ten
thousand times repeated throughout the
northern states until the day of the elec
tion. While willing to aid in dispelling those
prejudices, I expect but little practical
benefit from any denials we may make
against political defamation; but as an evi
dence that I appreciate the spirit which
prompts intelligent northern men like
yourselt to defend us, I will briefly com
ment on some 01 the more common accusa
tions. First The southern people have never
at any time asked for the payment of their
debts, or of any portion of them, by the
federal government. Each southern state
lias now a Democratic legislature, and most
of them have had Democratic legislatures
for several years, but no resolution has
been adopted or proposed in any south
ern legislature asking from congress
remuneration for property destroyed by
war or for slaves emancipated. No
southern journal has set up any claim. For
some years I have been in immediate inter
course with thousands of my tellow-citizens
of this and other southern states, but I am
yet to hear the first man, old or young,
"urge this doctrine or express the hope that
such debts will be paid by congress at any
future time. Nor do they murmur at bear
ing their share of the Federal debt, the in
terest ot which, to a large extent, is pnid
out of revenues based upon southern ex
ports. They desire a peaceful, constitu
tional and economical administration, and
this they hope soon to have; but they seek
no bounty from the Federal treasury and
they will shrink from no burden which
such ft government may impose.
As for Louisanait w as much damaged by
the war, but our state was damaged quite
as much by miarulc under the carpet-baggersto
the extent of more than 00,000,
000. Under pacific administration of the
the Federal government and hottest and ef
ficifnthome government our people hope
to repair the injuries suffered from intrud
ers after the war; but be assured that they
will not seek this reparation from congress.
Second It is charged that Southern vot
ers are kept from the polls by violence. In
December, WJ, an election wan held in
Louisiana for state officers, members of the
legislature, sheriffs and local magistrates,
and at the same time a new constitution
was submitted tor ratification. Mote than
one hundred and fourteen thousand votes
were polled, of which the Republican can
didate for governor received
41,000. Colored voters in great
numbers supported the Democratic
ticket, which was elected by a majority of
more than thirty thousand, while the con
stitution was ratified by a vote of HUfitt
against 20,4y,'J. The constitution, framed
by a Democratic body, was thus supported
by 13,000 Republicans or more. This fact
alone is enough to show that tho election
was peaceful and orderly. I never knew
of an election, here or elsewhere, more en
tirely fair nnd quiet. There was no vio
lence at or near the polls; there were no
threats of violence made before, during or
after tho election; there wero no arms
shown at tho polls; no laborers were dis
charged or threatened with dischargo for
exercising their tree choice. Our nystem
of registration is thorough and fair.
Our laws require polls to bo located
for the greatest convenience of voters.
Thu voters of colored men aro solicited by
the candidates of all parties, aiid they vote,
as do vottrs elsewhere, according to their
personal or political preference. Note this:
Our constitutional convention in 1870, over
which I presided, was in daily session from
April 21 to July 23, or over ninety days.
Two-thirds of thu delegates were democrats
In all that timo no measure, resolution or
ordinance was proposed or thought of for
taking away, abridging or modifying the
right ot suffrage of colored citizens. With
out a dissenting vote the convention adopt
ed an article (No. declaring that "No
qualification of any kind for suffrage or
oiiice, nor any restraint upon the same, on
account of race, color or previous condition,
shall be made by law." That delaration,
niadu by a democratic body, was ratified
by eighty-five thousand voters, und it is
now a part of our fundamental law.
Third Tho charge is made that the ne
groes are cheated out of their wages and
are made to work for tho whites without
pay. There is as little of truth as of com
mon sense in this charge. When labor is
plenty and the demand limited, wages are
low; but labor is in tho demand through
out the more productive regions of the
South and fair wages arc regularly paid for
it. Taking the year through, colored labor
ers get more than twice the average wages
paid in Europe and quite as tutu h as are
paid in the Northern States. They are
adapted to the climate and familar with
Southern crors. Being unrestrained in their
action, they go where they
can get the best wages and where
they arc most needed. If ill-treated
they do not return to the same employer, but
that seldom hap eus, because tew planters
are so unwise as to drive away the laborers
on whom they depend tor making and se
curing crops. While perfectly at liberty to
emigrate to Kansas or elsewhere, not one in
every five hundred of them has gone.
Those who were cheated into the "exodus"
movement are either coming home or anx
ious to come. You know that they have
the same natural attachment for the land
of their birth as white people have. They
are providing themselves with home com
forts, and now that they are less misguided
and deceived by misehievjus political ad
venturers and agitators, they are contented,
and steadily gaining ground. In a word,
their white neighbors are honest, and ih lr
relations with them are universally amica
ble. They have learned that they were
greatly damaged by the bad government
and high taxes of the carpet-bag dynasty,
and they are fast finding out who their best
Fourth It is charged that the people of
Louisiana are neglecting the education of
children of w hite children to a great ex
tent and of colored children altogether.
We must admit that the enormous losses
resulting trora the war and the damages,
equally as great, resulting from the intru
sive radical state and local misrule and
spoliation, have left the people of Louisi
ana too poor to compete with wealthy
states in public education. But what are
the facts? Before carpet-ban state rule
here we had a tree school, seminary and
university fund of about a million and a
half dollars, represented by bonds on which
the state paid interest for the support of
public schools and institutions of learning.
Under the carpet-baggers, the whole of this
fund was embezzled, squandered,
diverted to bad uses or frittered
away. Yet our constitutional con
vention of 1STD, a Democratic body, de
clared the original fund to be a debt duc
hy the state and made the stute treasury
perpetually chargeable with the payment of
annual interest thereon fur the benefit of
public school, the seminary and university.
The same convention appropriated the state
poll-tax, never less than f I per capita, ex
clusively to public schools. Our state tax
is limited to six mills and of this one mill
is for educational purport s. The interest
on the proceeds of all public bonds grunted
by the United States, and all grants, be
quests and donations to the state1, and all
vacant estates failingto the state by escheat,
are devoted by the con-titutlon to the same
furpose. In addition to these sources of
support for schools each pari-h is authori
zed to levy a tax for the public schools
therein. Funds from all s urees are equal
ly distributed according to the number of
children of designated air: and they are
employed impartially for colored children as
well as white. There is, moreover, an insti
tution, that Southean University, pro
vided for by constitution and statut: exclu
sively for the education of colored sti'dents.
Let tlfsc facts speak for the slandered
white men of Louisiana! The foundation
of a thorough school fysterit has been laid
again over the ruins of thnt which the carpet-baggers
destroyed. If left at peace an i
favored with prosperity our people will
complete and perfect the edifice. The cause
ofuniver-ai education has many devoted
supporters all over the state and it is uni
versally encouraged by all classe,. Schools
for colored children are opr every year in
all sections for a period as longasthe funds
will permit, and their instruction is evert
wlif-refaored and no where opposed or
In conclusion let mo assure you, and
through you all who are interested in our
welfare, that tho white people of Louisiana
expect for themselves and their descend
ants to remote generations that the colore !
people and their descendants will be with
them as fellow-citizens and as joint occu
pants of the land, and tiiat therefore we
desire to sec them improve in every respect
calculati d to make tin in intelligent, honest,
peaceful, law-abiding, thrilty and prosper-
The loregoing statement may correct er
roneous impressions elsewhere than in your
town and county. You are therefore at
liberty to give this letter any circulation or
publicity you may deem proper.
I have the honor to be your obedient
servant, Louis A. Wiltz,
Governor ui Louisiana.
THE It Ell ML CLAIMS, ItKVK.NUE ItEKOHMS
AND THE CIVIL SKKVICE.
Senator-elect Ran lall Gibson, of Louisi
ana, who is at the New York hotel, said
last night in reply to a World reporter's
question about General Hancock's letter on
the alleged "southern claims:'' "I cannot
commend that letter too highly. I indorse
every word of it. Such mi expression from
General Hancock was called for and was
properly made, but had the republicans
understood how absurd it wi.s to make an
ado over 'rebel claims,' tin y would have
chosen some other subject. There has
never been any talk in any part of the south,
so far ns I know, certainly not in Louisiana,
about making any claim of any kind
against the government, The mere idea
would have been lnnghed to scorn. I do
not suppose a single suno ex slaveholder in
tho south 1ms ever indulged a hope of com
pensation for the loss 1 if his property by
L tho war. It was the penalty ot war. If
tho south to-day had the privilege to tie
termino by vote whether or not payment
should nuido for the freed slaves tl-cr"
