Washington, Nov. 12.-Offended by
the tone and miner of their chair
nan,. W. M. Trotter, of Boston, Pres
ident Wilson today ended anl inter
view with a delegation of negroes who
.alled at the White House to Irotest
igainst race segregation in govern
3uent departments, with at warning that
if the negroes wanted to see him again
,hey would have to got another spokes
4ian. The President said he had not
been addressed lit such fashion since
tio entered the White House.
A fifteen-minute interview had been
irranged for the callers and the Pres
Ident recieved then In his office with
mnly his stenographer present. The
Jelegation conpalned formally that
Postmaster General Burleson, Secre
Lary 'McAdoo and Comptroller Wil
Hlams, of the treasury, were enforcing
segregation of white and negro em
ployees in their offices. %Ir. \Vilson lis
Lned to the statement and then replied
at length, explaining that lie had ii
vestigated this matter himself and had
beenl assured that no discrimination
liad been practiced gainst the ne
groes and that segregation had
been inaugurated to avoid friction be
tween the races, not to injure the no
gro. le added that lie was deeply in
terested in the negro race and ad
mired it for the progress it had made.
At this point Trotter and others of
the delegatioi took issue with the
President. They declared the negro
people did not seek charity. or assist
mnce, but held that they had equal
rights with the white and that these
rights should .be respected. There had
been no friction, they insisted, before
the segregation was started.
Mr. Wilson waited for the protest to
eid. Then lie told the delegation that
h% could not discuss the matter fur
ther. He closed with the quiet, but
emiatic statement that Trotter had
loit control of his temper and that he
(the lresident) could not be talked to
In such a m'iner.
When the negroes left they saId their
talk had been "thoroughly disappoint
ing" and that they would hold a mass
meeting in Washington next Sunday
to protest further against segregation.
Trotter said in his address that hIs
committee did not come "as wards
looking for charity, but as full-fledged
American citizens, vouchsafed eqtal
ty of citizenship by the Federal (on

were thought to be a second Abraham

Th'l lPresilent spoke frankly, saying
that it' the negro people had inade a
mistake in voting for him they ought
to correct it, but that lie would inlist
that politics should not be brought li

Vancement of the negro, the President
was suire that, as practical men, every
b)o(y knew that there wvas a point at
which friction is apt to occur. The
question must be stripped of sentiment

facts get telie better of the Individual

h'lle President said Ie thought his

at a disadvantage, but snimply to make

involved was not a tiluestionl of intriln
