Beaufort, S. C., Jan. L.--E manci
pation Day was celebrated in great
style in Beaufort. The grand mar
shal of the day was Joseph Dais.
There was a street parade of Iederal
Veterans, colored militia, business
men and citizens. Exercises were
held at the school house, where the
Emancipation Proclamation was read
by Edward Mayers. The Rev. P. P.
Watson was master of ceremonioe.
Robert Smalls delivered a short ad
dress, reviowing the first emancipa
tion calebration which was held at
Beaufort in 1863. Gen. Rufus Sax
ton, who was present in Beaufort at
the celebratien in '63, wired a mess
age of congratulation, which was
read by the Rev. Mr. Watson, who
then introduced the orator of the
day. President Thomas E. Miller,
who spoke in part as follows:
While in the State Senate one of
the greatest compliments that was
ever paid to the head, hand and heart
of the American negro fell from the
lips of that splendid Confederate
chieftain, Mart Gary. Said he: "The
negro is ignorant, but he is loyal to
a cause, he is faithful to a trust and
there is no body of men found any
where who will follow a leader with
more confidence, love and fidelity
than the negro." "Give him leader.

comes blind to everything other than
to the call of duty."
Yes, Mr. Chairman, our people
have never betrayed a trust, whether
at home, in the fields, in the work
shops or on the battlefivid. History
records him as never a c-arpILg hypo
crite with foul treason ;n his heart.
The speaker adverted briefly to
the horrors of slavery.
* * * Standing here amidst the
very first moments of a new century.
having been permitted to live during
the last half of the century that has
just passed away, I am unable to re
call many events-some of which are
recorded in history. And as I stand
here and draw aside the curtain and
peep down the vista of time I see the
events as if with magic, passing,
passing before my vision all the wvay

and point out a few of the things we
suffered previous to this the birthday
of our deliverance? No, ohl no.
Most of them are engraved upon our
hearts as if burnt in by hot steel.
N'evertheless this is not the time for
me to.indulge in the temptation to
recall them. There is another task
a self-inflicted task-assigned me, and
it is to deal brietly with present con

take a reckoning so as to present to
you a bird's-eye view of the blessings
that are to be ours in the future
A>blessings that must come if we can
only coutinue to bear and forbear
blessings that we will enjoy if we
will only labor, prepare ourselves and
wait for their coming. .
Hence I have chosen for my sub
"AT APES NON FRIAoTA;"

"Nevertheless hope is not broken."
At present our situation is not
what we would like to have it. To
one who sees an object superficially
the outlook is gloomy, but after all
the sun is still shining and the fog,
the mist, must and will disappear.
But, fellow citizens, we must lift
.up our hands and execute-for no
~people has ever prosperea by wrating,
usupinely waiting, for outside inter
fference. .Where are we? Where
aare the ten millions of negroes lo
pated? We are principally In the
slave-holding States and there we
must and will roiain unless we fly
from under the American flag to a
land over which the American eagle
spreads not its wings in majesty and
THE NORTH DOES NOT WANT Us.
Why, even the great State of Illi.
nois, that furnished our emancipator,
through its present Governor, (Tan
ner,) tells us we must not come.
Have you forgotten that not two
years ago he forbade negro laborers
entering in the State of Illinois to
labor in the mines? He called us
aliens and said if we persisted in
coming there to work, not to vote; to
labor in the mines-the lowest of
labor--to earn broad by the sweat of
our brow; if we persisted in coming
there to labor and to work he would
meet us on the border with Gatling
guns and shoot us to death.
Yes, friends, lie was so reported in
the daily papers and I have never
seen it contradicted. Nevertheless
he is one of our Republican Gover
In every Republican convention up
to the time Garfield was nominated
something was said ir the platform
favorable to the negro. But since
then our great national Republican
conventions have not had men in
them who were loyal enough to us to
place in the platform one word of
hope and cheer for the negroes, who
bad been faithful to them at all times
and on all occasions.
NEGLECTED EVEN BY MIKINLEY.
The nation has just succeeded in
electing a Republican President,
William McKinley, and he has writ
ten a long message to Congress.
I know a negro preacher who goes
frantic every time he sees the word
negro printed with a little n, but on
the night after President McKinley's
recent message was printed I heard
a negro lady exclaim: "I would have
been thankful to President McKinley
if he had been able to remember tie
negro with a little n."
The truth is, fellow citizens, he
did not remember to write us with
any kind of an n in his message.
The truth is, the national Repub
lican party, through its officere, have
served notice on us that they have
grown tired serving us, and that
they do not intend to interfere with
us or assist us.
When President McKinley made
his Southern tour he said in Georgia
that "every Confederate grave was a
monument to American patriotism."
Fellow citizens, let me quote Presi
dent McKinley again: "EFvery Con
federate grave is a monument to
American patriotism." Do you doubt
it? If you are Republicans, which I
know you are, you do not dare doubt
it, for our Republican President, who
is the oflicial mouth piece of the
Republican party, said so and the
party at the last election, endorsed
it by reelecting him; hence it is true.
DO NOT BE BLIND TO FACTSi
It is useless to live if you intend
to live is blindness. Every utterance
of importance tailing from the lips
of Northern Republicans, with very
few exceptions. tends to show that
the Republican party is getting in
doubt on the subject of ,who- was
right or who was wrong during the
What is a patriot? What is pr.
triotism? Can the graves of men
who were guilty of doing wrong be
monuments to patriotism? No, fe;
low citizens, we must accept William
McKinley as authority on this sub
One of the sore subjects with us
negroes of Beaufort County is the
matter of our partial and temporary
disfranchisement, and we blame the
white people of South CJarolina for
it. In part they are blamable, but
only in a very small part. They
have accomplished the act with,
through and by the permission of the
national Republicans of the North.
If the North did not want it so the
handful of white people in the South
could not make it so. A Republican
Supreme Court, by refusing to inter
vene an.d assist us, has said that they
were right in this act. The Repub
lican Congress by refusing to seat
Republican Congressmen from South
Ctrolina has further emphasize,d the
fact that the Whito people of South
Carolina in this act have been right.
The truth is but tho truth, and I
am here to tell you tho whole truth,
and it is this: The national Repuibli
can party has abandoned is; they
havo shiamefnilly desorted us, and
with a very few except ic.ns t hiy show
by their ut terances that they need
the forgiveness of the Sc uth for ever
having assisted us. We have a fow
friends left, but they are in woful
minority. Chandler, Mason, Allison,
Ton Reed and Harrison are still
with us, but where is their backing?
When it comes to the negro they
stand almost alone.
NE011o A 1ONE OF CONTENTION.
From time immemorial (as iea
sured by the life of the American
Republic) the negro has been the
bone of political contention. In the
early part of the century the fact of
his being in the South, and thereby
was counted by the South in its
claim to and possession of political
representation in the national coi.i
ciI, was the cause of a long and tit
ter strife between the North and
South. The Southern master iaid
that though lie was a black slave he
was human, and for that reason in
sisted that he should be counted in
the apportionment of political repro
sentation between the States, andI
they did succeed in having him count
ed in part. On the other hand, the
North said that, although he was a
human being, he was only a chattel,
hence in the political apportionment
he should riot be counted at il and
that only three white men could be
The subject of political represen
tation for the negro agitated the na
tion from its earliebt birth and was
the chief and direct causo of the fir
ing of the first shot at Fort Sumter
and the surrender of that noble chief
tain at Appomatox.
It was a chief cause of the Em
ancipation Proclamation that was
that read here today, and to-day
thirty-seven years after our emancipa
tion-it is the bone of contention.
THE SOUTH IN CONoRESS.
The question that concerns us
more than any other one question is
the fifty Congressmen who are ac
credited to the South on account of
ten million negroes in the South.
Nearly every negro preacher, nearly
every thinking, well-meaning negro
throughout this glorious Southland
of ours, says that the South should
lose those fifty Congressmen because
of our partial and temporary dis
franchisement. 'A prophet is not
w,ithout honor save in his own coun
try." And why so?
Because he is a seer-one who un
veils the future and shows to his
f llow countrymen things that are
for their l'est good, but seldom in ac
cord with their thoughts or wishes.
Fellow citizens, that is my position
before you to day.
-I have studied well this subject
and, and, as I see it for my good,
my country's good and especially th,
good of my race. I feel that I am
not in accord with the thoughtful
of that race. But, oh, countrymen!
negroes? Have patience; give mel
your sympathy and hear me for the
cause of negroes-yes negroes tin
I am unalterably opposed to the
cutting down of the South's repro
sentation that is given her on ic
count of ten million negroes within
her confines. I am opposed to it
first, because I am a Southern negro;
third, because it is my expoctatu n
to live and die here, and miy solen, n
wish is that all who are connect. d
with me as negroes should remain
in this Southland, the best place in
the world for negroes.
