THURSDAY, AUGUST 11,1881.
The News & Courier, in comment
ing upon the meeting of the colored
people iu Charleston, in which the
whites were attacked in some of the
"The whites like the colored peo
ple, and are sincerely attached to
them. They ate more indulgent and
i considerate than Northerners, with
out past associations and memories,
would dream of being. The trouble,
nud the only trouble, has been with
the colored people themselves. They
do not trust the whites in politics.
Until they do trust them, or some of
them, there will not be true harmony
in the South. Little by little the
distrust is wearing away, and as it is
eroded the relations of the two races
will grow more cordial and more
wholesome. The process would not
be a long one if such disturbing in
fluences as Mackcy, Elliott, Smalls,
Fred. Nix, Straker and the rest, were
removed from public life. And for
such men, unless he is totally differ
ent from ?vhat the country believes
him to be, President Garfield has no
This''is 'truly the only trouble in
South Carolina. As long its'the ra
ces are so antagonistic in politics,
peace and prosperity will be to a cer
tain extent impeded.
It has always been a wonder that
the colored people/trust the whites in
every thing else but politics. In
every thiug else the races are in per
fect harmony. In fact, marked good
feeling and kindness subsist between
them. Why not then tear away from
evil leaders and come together in
supporting honest government ? It
will have to be either this, or constant
turmoil. We will never submit to a
return of the ten years of radicalism.
The Chancen of Hie Colored
It is practically demonstrated that
the colored people, if they choose,
can prosper in South Carolina. We
know a number of colored men, and
could name them if necessary, who
have made money and property since
the war in Orangeburg County, and
that too with no unnatural exertion.
In the Bull Swamp, or Caw Caw soc
tion of the County, every body kuows
the Hibler family and many others
who own land and run excellent
farms. The same can be said for the
Sautec section, along the river, where
a number of colored men are well to
do. The truth is, the colored people
have a great advantage. Inured I?
toil, their whole family are workers,
and, not heir g raised in extravagance
and luxury, they are able to save, if
they will. There is no necessary loss.
If they will only cultivate a spirit of
economy and management, and che* k
the wild disposition to spend
money, there is nothing to prevent
their prosperity, and then they will
all want Democratic governments to
kjcp dowu taxes.
A Constitutional Conv ention
The Greenville NeiM says:
"Thesafo rule for the guidance of
State und*men in all the perplexities of
life and politics is to lind the straight
forward course that leads to the right
:ihd follow it*. The doubts now dis
turbing the best, minds in South Car
olina oil the proper method of reiuedx
iug the existing faults of our Stall
constitution can be cleared by jus;
that plan. Amendments to the con
stitution are necessary for the good
of the people. Those amendments
can bo dcTiued and made most speed
ily, cii'cctively and justly by a con
vention of the people, if the people de
mand it. That is the plain path of
reason, and the requirement of exact,
fairness. The right way Is always
the best and safest, whatever thedan
gefs and diiflcttUics that may appar
ently beset it. We believe the p. op! i
can l?e trusted. If, the Convention
being ordered, incompetent or cor
r'.ipt men are sent to it, that result
will be the fault of the white voters of I
the State. If they are so foolish and
weak as to permit such a result, their
political destruction is only a J&?B
