The Editor of The Georgian Writes
^Forcefully ou This AH-*,b
In disouBSlng the frequency ot as
saults on whits women by negroes in
tho South the Atlanta Georgian says
we bavs loarnod the great truth that
lynching doss not stop the orlme
against our women. We have roached
by elimination the oonolusion that
other experiments must bo trlod to
intimidate tho criminals of the negro
race. O e of the most hopeful of these
ex pori monts seemB to be a statute au
thorizing the mutilation of the orlmi

mystery which will appeal to the ter

But beyond these and above these
and moro potential than all others, ls
tbe stern and insistent demand of our
white civilization that the leaders of
tbe negro race shall givo us from this
time forth that co oporatlon which
they have heretofore refused. The
South is g-owlng Indignantly tlrod of
negro tirades in oontral oitles against
the lawloRsnes8 of lynching. Wo are
tlrod of negro platitudes and r?solu
?Inns agaluBt tho injustioo of tbe
South toward the negr ). And we have
utterly lost patience with these pad
tlc preachments which ory cut for law
and order on the part of tho white
man, whilo they spend no timo nor
breath nor effort In tbuuiering to
their owu people the earnest and pas
sionate denunciation of these crimi
nals who make the ohief tension and
tho deadly friotlon botweon the ra
Now see here: The South has for 25
years befriended tho negroes in every
prattloal way. We have helped to
sustain their schools, we have burled
their dead and helped to ma.ntain
their living sometimes in idleness and
sometimes in want But now as one
unit In the mass of Southern senti
ment, The Georgian lifts Its voice and
protests that henceforward it will give
no dollar and lend no aid and no co
operation to auy negro institution
until its c Moers, Its preachers, Its
touchers and Its editors shall j dn with
us in thundering Into the ears of thc
negro raoo the warning and denuncia
tion of this horrible orlme.
Without passion, or at least with
out passion which is not richly due
and justified, wc ask our breathrcn of
the Southern press and cur (Jaucasiuu
friends and brethren tverywhere to
lake this ?rm and unaltcrabrc stand
-that they will help no negro church,
newspaper or sohool until they know
that its preachers, its teachers and
Its editors in those institutions are
thundering the doctrino of hell and
damnation to tho assailants of white
women. Now this ls fair. It is just,
and it is right.
The South ls living under a shadow
whtoh no mau eau estimate. Men
whoso publio meetings are held at
home because they aro afraid to leavt
their families alone even in the shel
ter and sanotlty of their own bornes
after nightfall, filen oinnot go to
ohuroh for tbe same reason. And this,
please God, is the South. Wo are a
free pcoplo and a great oouutry. Are
we to live forever under this shadow
and under this terror? Aro wo to sit
still and help to build up those negro
institutions when they are silent and
apathetic toward the peril in whleh
their oriminals put the best element
of our race? Are wo to oo operate
with these people to build up institu
tions when they are ?Hont and apa
bbetlo toward the peril In wbloh they
do not preach the enormity of these
offenses? Are w) to be forever hold
lu astate of Beige with our women,
trembling in fear and terror when
they are alone? Is the liberty which
our fathers bought with their blood
to be surrendered to tho foul terror
of an alien and subordinate raoe?
We tell these teaohcrs, these
preaobors and these editors trat they
have the most vital Interest in th h.
atfair. If the boundaries of restraint
are ever broken by this Caucasian race
in a wild spirit of retaliation for a
condition which imprisons and terri
Ilea the noblest wore cu of the world,
they themselves will he whelmed in
thc tidal waye whioh follows.
And wo say here and now to Book
er Washington, to Gaines, and Turner
tu Proctor and to Stlnson, and to the
rest of those who aro so eager to ru h
Into print to plead for law and ordor;
that If they have any regard for tho
future of their race and for thom
selves, they will take tho hint which
is not unkindly sent from this arous
ed and Indignant race of Caucasians,
and will stand shoulder to shoulder
with us in demanding that every
proaoher in ever oountry pulpit and
every t Tbor of every little 2x4 sicct
and thu. overy tcachor in the city and
country school Bhall devote some part
of his sermon or some portion of hiB
editorial, or some segment of his
scholastic hours GO preaching hell and
damnation to all who are guilty of
this fiendish crime.
We assure theso men that the
Caucasian sentiment of this coun
try as lt never was before. We
need not and will nob continuo
to have our worner live under
the shadow of this fiendish ne
gro lust. We aro going to free our
women, no matter what tho cost may
be to another race. There is no wild
ness of passion and radicalism in this
announcement. If tbcBo men know
anything they know that we demand
lt, and they know that demand in
firmly stern and earnest. But SB long
as they continue to howl resolutions
resolutions against lynching, and or
ate against lawlessness willie thoy are
shamefully silent toward tho orimes
which prod nco the mob then the baek

serpent had recovered lt said:
"Divine prophet, listen. I am now

"Why, pray?" Inquired Mohammed.
"Because thy race persecutes mino

"But doos not Uiy race, too, make

prophet's rejoinder. "How canst thou,
besides, bc so ungrateful and so soon
forget that I saved thy Ufo?"

and Peoond Primariet, For
By rr quest we publish the results
of several primaries held in this State
in the last ton years in which there
we sharp oontests. The first ore
we Rive occurred in 1890 vbou Messrs.
Evans, Eirle and Dunoan contested
for ?scat In the UnitedStates Senate.
Tho vote in the first primary was as
Ewle. 30 083
Dunoan. 8 309
Total vote. 77 713
Evana only laoked 481 votes to oleot
bim, ard it did look as If he ou#ht to
not them out of .Dunoan'6 8 309 votes,
but be did not as the following result
in the second primary shows:
Mirle. 43 323
limns . 40.100
Total volo.. 83 489
Evans lucre unod his vote la the
second primary only 1 776 voten,
while Earle lnoreasod his 11,337 vote?,
giving him the nomination by a
mnjorlty of 3.167 over Evans. The
result was a great disappointment to
tho friends of Evaua, who were cor
Qdent that their oandidate from his
big lead In the ?rst primary would be
an easy wlnuer lu the eeoond.
We will next, consider the primary
of 1808 when B 'erbe was nominated
over Featherstone, the prohibition
oindldate. In the first primary the
vote was as follows.
Ellerbe. 29 279
Featherstone. 17 0 .0
Tillman. ll 491
Sohumpert. 7 082
Watson. 7 240
Total vote. 73.308
Of the total vote east EUerbu re
oelvod 20 279 against 44,029 given to
the other four candidates. He lacked
7 376 votes to nominate him. The
uext highest oandidate was Feather
stone and he lacked 19,038, having
received 11,003 votes loss than
Kllerbe. In tho faootf such a lead
as that it would seem that E'lorbe
would win with a big mr J rity but
iie did not, as ho barely got in by a
majority of 1,980 over Featherstone
as the following vote In tho seoond
Featherstone. 29 442
Tctal vote. 00,870
Tho vote foll off nearly 13,000 from
tho first to tbo sioond primary, but
it will bo notlood that Feathorstono
Inoreased his vote 11,820. while B 1er
bo only Inoreased his 2,149.
We will next consider the primary
IQ which GD v. MoS weeney won over
Col. Hoyt. Tue vote in first primary
waa as follows:
Hoyt. 33 833
Patterson. 0 062
Whitman. . 491
Total vote. 92 429
O.' thei tota' vote ca?fr MoSweeney
received 39 097 against 63,332 for the
oVrmr four candidates. II) laoked
6,117 votes to nominate him. Tbe
next nighest oandidate was Hoyt, and
he lacked 11.820 votes to K?VO h'm a
majority, he having reoelved 6,204
votes less than Mcsweeney. Hoyt's
friends felt oontldbut that out of tho
63,3 32 votei east against MoSweeney
their candidate would get enough to
aomlnate him, but they were badly
mistaken as the result of tho second
primary shows. The voto in the se
oond primary was as follows:
Mi S veeney. 51,303
Hoyt. 37 412
Total vote. 88 775
The vote fell efl only 3 654 from
the lind, to tho seoond palmary. Kc
Sweoney inoreased his vo>. 12,200
whllo Hoyt inoreased his vote only
3 654. It will bo seen that Mc
Sweeney was nominated by a ma
Jori ty of 13.951 over Hoyt, who
was the prohibition oandidate. Mc
sweeney favored the dispensary, and
so did Gary and Patterson, and in
the second primary nearly all of theil
vote went to Mcsweeney, whioh gave
him the nomination.
