In appropriate terms, the Rev.

Prof. A. C. Maclin, A. M as
the new executive, officer for this

sensible smtimcnts, spoke ol the

Laaveuwortb, Kan., Sept. 10.
oig stir was created in political
circlet here by the production of
a letter over the signature of John
H. Atwood, national Democratic
committeeman for Kansas, and
chairman of the Speakers'-Bureau
of the National Democratic Com
mittee in charge of W. J'. Bryan'a
campaign, advocating the difran
chisement of the Negroes of Kan
The Tetter of Mr. Atwood waB
printed in the Kansas City Post
under date of May 6, a couple of
months in advance of the preai
dential nominations, when it "had
not been decided to play the hypo
crite to capture the colored vote.
Mr. Atwood is the first Demo,
crat to boldly declare for the dis
frauchisement of the Negro race
in a Northern state. He goes
farther and plans to practically
cut colored children off from re
ceiving an education. The let
ter o( Mr. Atwood read as follows:
To the Kansas City Post By
one of toose strange ironies of
fate which sometimes overtake
the benefactors of individual
pcop'.es or races, the State of Kan
sas, which has done more, per
haps, for the Negro than any oth
er state in the Union, is now suf
fering a gr-evious political wrong
from the hands of the frccdman
and his descendants.
William A. Harris would now
be govenor of Kantas had it not
been for the ignorant Negro vote
and there have been times in the
past when the Democratic party
could have elected its state ticket
had it not been for the ignorant
black vote of Kansas City (Kan.),
Leavenworth, Atchinson, Lavr
rence and Topeka.
There was a time when the Ne
gro vote was not a considerable
factor in Kansas politics, but the
time has passed. The influx of
Negroes from the South, the rap
id multiplication of those native
to Kansas soil, and the increas
ing insistence of the Negro upon
social equality, make the Kansas.
Negro not only a political factor,
but a social and political menace.
If the last general election be a
criterion, the Negro now holds
the balance of political power in
Kansas as he does in Missouri.
This in itself is bad enough, but
in Kansas we have suffered for
long years the outrage of mixed
schools, fastened upon us by Re
Mixed richools lead the Negroes
to aspire to a mixed society, and
this close contact of the races is
productive of trouble from which
Kansas would be free if the Ne
gro had less political power and
Kere not admitted to the same
scnoois with the whites.
Kansas has long been weary of
tne negro politician, and it is
more than weary of the mixed
school. Patience has its limit,
and I believe the time has come
when the people of Kunsan will
join with the people of Missouri
in restricting Negro suffcrage.
I do not advocate the disfran
chisement of the Negro on the
ground of his color. That idea
is abhorcnt to the principles of
our free govornmcnt and its exe
cution would be in conil ict with
But our constitution will per
mit the disfranchisement of the
ignorant depraved, lazy, vicious
and debauched Negro, and this
disfranchisement should be ac
complished to the end that our
free institutions may not suffir.
