Reply or The Bulletin: Wo shnll
reply to Mr. llarrell point after point :
i-'irsf Point. Mr. liar roll truly uiscrti
that, as a class, tho 2,500 negroes of Cairo
aro non-taxpaying and non-producing
citizens. That is tc say, n largo majority
of tho 2,000 negroes of tho city men,
women and children do not pay.taxcs and
do not do nny work which produces wealth.
Mr. Hnrrcll's object in stating this fact is
to hold It up before the negroes as n ro
pronch. But it is no reproach to them;
because of tho C,000 whito people in Cairo
tho largo majority nro also non-producors
and non-tax-pnycre. Can this bo doniod?
How mnny of tho C,000 whito poople, mom
women and children, pay taxes on " com
fortable homes?" Wo believe tho num
ber will fall short of ono in every flvo or
six. How many nro engaged in produc
tive labor, the results of which, according
to many writers, must bo palpable in some
material object capablq of being trans
ferrcd from ono person to another ? Wo
bollovo tlio numbor will full short of fifty
in each thousand. So, while it is truo that
tho negroes, as a clasi, nro non-producers
and non-taxpayers tho largo majority
being so; it is nlso true that tho whito peo
ple of Cairo, a class, nro llkewiso non
producors and non-taxpayers tho largo
majority being ?o, Theroforo, tho stone of
reproach, Hung by Mr. llarrell nt tho col
ored citizens of Cairo, is a missilo which
may bo hurled buck at tho people of his
and our race and color.
.Mr. llarrell says that tho prcsenco of
1!,500 negroes Imposes upon tho whito tnx
payors of tho city the education of 500
black children. This fact ho oilers as ovi
denco that tho ncgroc. arc not n desirable
element of our population as n roason
why wo should got rid of thorn if wo can
" by not oncouraglng thorn." Tlio fact
is as stated, but tho uso of it is improper ;
because, if the fact that tho tai-payors of
tho city must pay for tho education of 500
colored whose parents pay no tuxes la a
good reason why all tho blacks should bo
induced to " soek tlio broad acres nil
nround us," tlio other fact, that tho tax
payers of Cairo must pay to oducato whito
children whoso parents aro too poor to pay
taxes, is a good reason why thoso poor
vyhitojiarcnU should bo induced to also
" sook tho broad acros all around us." In
deed, Mr. Harroll's argumont is an argu
mont against tho public school system
which is basod on tho idea that tho noorost
Is entitled to nn education nnd tho wealth
of tbo country must pay for it. It is, at
least, an argumentative boomerang. Whon
thrown it is ns likely to wound tho whites
who fling it as tho blacks at whom it is
3. Wo do not deny that tho prcsonco of j
z,tuu negroes in iairo largely increases
tho expenses of our criminals, but wo
doubt if tho incrcaso is ?i!,C00 nyoar, ns
Mr. Uarroll asserts, Ironi Januarv 1st.
1871, to July 1th, 1871 a few days over
six months tho city paid tho polico forco
$1,790,05, and for tho support of prisonors,
white and black, ?1,-1"3.7D. In a year, nt
this rate, the total cost of tho polico forco
and of feeding prisonors, would bo $5,
010.82. Now, wo do not believe that Mr.
Harroll would claim that, If wo had no ne
groes in Cairo, tho cost of tho polico forco
and Jail would bo as low ns $2,000. AVo
could not get along with a smaller forco
than was on from January 1st to July
th. But, tho fact remains, that muey of
tho ticgroos nro ordinanco breakers, and
glvo to our polico court much of its bust-
ncss. Thoy hnvo not tho opportunities to
obtnln labor that whito men have, and,
since Satan finds somo wicked work for
dlo hands to do, they nro too often
n difficulties. In this fact wo sco
reason why work tihould bo furnished to
them if possible If thoy aro kept busy
they will not put tho city to much ox
penso. Instead of being nn argument to
support Mr. llarrell, tho fact that many
negroes get into Jail because when they dont
work aro Idle Is an nrgumont in sup
port of our assortion, that thoy ought to
bo furnished as much work ns thoy can do
well, if it is possiblo to glvo it to them
without sacrificing public or privato inter
4. Having stated that criminal negroes
greatly incrcaso tho polico expenses of tho
city, Mr. Harroll makes tho broad assor
tion, that towards paying those largo and
burdensomo oipcnsos tho colorod popula
tion do not contribute, annually, tbo sum
of $25 1" Wo aro amazed at tho lack of
information Mr. llarrell possesses on this
point, llo is decidedly mistaken. Wo
can namo cloven colored men of Cairo
who havo paid Into tho city treasury this
year over six hundred dollars, and this is
not near all that pay taxes. Tho trustees
of tho property ront lots to about 70 col
ored raon in tbo city j to about 00 in tho
fifth nddition ; to about 100 In tho barracks,
etc. Besides theso thoro aro others to
whom other parties rent houses nnd lots,
nnd a numbor nf negroes own their own lots
nnd houses. Many of these pay
rent and taxes; and, when this arrange
ment is not mado, they pay tho taxes indi
rectly in tho ront. In tho light of theio
facts, what becomes of Mr. Harroll's as
sortion that tho colored population do not
contribute to tbo expenses of tho city 25
a year ?
But Mr. Harroll says wo have pervortcd
his moaning. Ho says ho did not say ho
desired to deny to tho colorod man tho
right to labor for his bread. What did ho
say 7 That the negro is a bad element;
that tho city would bo better off without
11; that it ought not therefore to bo en
couraged; that giving tho negro employ
ment under tho city government was en
couraging it. In other words: work en
courages tho nogro; this is wrong; there
foro givo him no work. If this was not
Mr. Harroll's lino of argumont in his first
articlo wo aro vory much mistakon.
But in his commnnication above printed
ho rises to explain, and says that our whito
population should not bo driven off to give
placo to tho negro. Wo agree with him.
But thcro is no need that cithor tbo indus
trious whito or black man should leave
Cairo. Thoro is work for both. But, lot
us say in answor to Mr. Harroll's question,
nnd say, that, if tho choico woro narrowed
down to a negro, who contributes littlo to
tho growth, etc., of tho city, nnd draws a
hundred cents out of tho public treasury
for ovory ono ho puts into it, ond a white
man who for years has shared in all tho
burdens of our city, wo should without
hesitation choose tho whito man. And
now lot us ask, if the case woro rovorsod,
and tho choico woro botweon a worthless
whito man, who had taken n hundred cents
from tho city treasury for every ono bo
had put into it, and n colored man who
for years had shared in all the burdens of
tho city, which would Mr. llarrell choose?
But what has this to do with tbo ques
tion under discussion? Tho city has em
ployed four colored tax-payers, nnd not
negroes who contribute nothing to the
city, nnd tako money out of tho treasury
without giving an equivalent in roturn.
So, whero do Mr. Harroll's objections
como in properly?
When ho says that tho city council has
no right to pay tho peoph's money to ne
groes for lak-or, ho stullifles himself, and
proves that ho docs not always square his
praclicos by his prccopts. As a school
director ho employed Warren Wclms
a colored man, as janitor of
the Thirtoonth stroot school house,
and consented to tho employment
of David Ross, nnothor colored
man, ns janitor of tho high school build
ing. If ho had desired ho might have
givon thoso places to whito mon, nnd thus
kept out of tho negroes' pockots a portion of
tho peoples monoy. How can ho
blttmo tho mombcrs of tho city council for
following tho exarnplo sot by himself?
Before ho nsks the council to explain
nwny Jenkins, nnd his laborers, he must
oxplaln awny Wcimos and Ross. It is as
sinful for thrco school directors to hiro
two negroes, as it is for oightcon mombors
of tho council to hlro five. Wo would ro
