SEPARATION THE SOLUTION.
That was a notable address deliverd
on Tuesday by the lion. John Temple
Graves, of Atlanta, before the Chau
tauqua, N. Y., "mob" confeence. A
brief synopsis of the address, outlining 2
Mr. Graves' position. is published else
where in this issue. Mr. Graves' argu- t
ment is very s'rong. His portrayal of
conditions existing in the South is very
true. lHis theme was "Lynching." and
while the crime is national, he spoke of
it from the standpoint of the South.
"Lynching is a crime," said Mr.
Graves. "No sane man will deny that
proposition. It is anarchy. It is riot.
It is a stab at the law. It is deplorable.
It is awful. It. is appalling. But it is
here. It is here to stay. ' ''We might
as well state the question fairly. Ile
problem of the hour is not how to pre
vent, lynching in the South, but the
larger question, how shall we destroy
the crime which always has and always
will provoke lynching."
No truer words were ever spoken.
Lynching for what ever cause is deplora
he. ut. to seek to prevent it for the
one crime is worse than useless. Nor
do we helive that lynching for t his crime
is always unjst itiable. The great
dallgerl lies itn the fact that the spirit of
lawlessness once aroused can not he
cont rolled. If lynht'ling for rapt he
Con111ne(ilded the spirit of mob violence
will spread until even the least crimes
will be considered suilcient cause for
speedy executimn at the hands of the
mob. 'Ihe truth of this has alreadv
lBut however mueh we may d iset
the evil of lynching the fact remains
that lynching for utpe can not he Plre
vented. Ini the el oUetIt Wolrds of \I1r.

Mr. Roosevelt was cor'rect whetn he
utter"ed that thought. There is (only
oneO cotnclusion. If the cim)e of rape
be niot prevented it will be onily a v'ery

E'dutcation wvill not prtevent the crime.
There have been more assaulIts u potn
wvhite women by negro brutes ini the
last few year's than at any other p)eriod
since the war'. If education wvill not
solve the plroblemi, nothing is left save
separation. And in the eloquent word(s
of Mr. Graves, "When the wvisdomn,
the courage, the candor of the country
shall reach this great and just conclu
sion, God and the statesmanship of an
unclontrollahle race wvill find the honor
able and peCaceful way."
