_WeJt)^to;, and Straker's Resolutions.
We publish by request a set of res
olutions passed by the Webster meet
i ig on Friday last, purporting to be
an endorsement of the sentiment cx
? pressed in the Tribune letter, but in
.reality ,iu nothing more than a rcpeti
lion of lite ideas?the same old meat
.hashed over. Ry the report of the
meeting found elsewhere, prepared
for the Democrat by a reliable color
ed 'man; it will be seen there was
'great dissatisfaction and but little in
-iCrest taken in the meeting by the
".voters"1 of the county present.
Moreover it ie asserted in Resolution
"1, that the Tribune letter expressed
'the "just arid correct sentiments of
j,he colored people of Orangehurg
County ;" yet there was pot one-tenth
tif .Ike colored people of the county in
'Attendance. At tho highest estimate
liiere was not more than a few Jmn
'ilred of lean and hungry' incn, women
'and children enticed by promises
Ajirongh the pulpit of a "4th of July
Resolution 2, recognizes Dr. Web
ster as *la friend and faithful worker
in the ministry of the Gospel." Dr.
Webster on every conveuicrjt.occasion
muk?s politics with his Gospel, wheth
er it be by bis epistolary correspond*
Voce, conversation around the family
t-irclu Or clh>rJ.s in fhc pulpit. This
' vJas not the manner of .Christ or auy ol
his Taithful apostles. No man ujani
'firsfrf Iiis educational interest for a j
'people by'making every opposition to
rl:he 'success of the only institution of j
learning of a high gra'd.o in ,lbc State:
lof'lhc colored race, ?uch h is been
ids iel'.v?on to C^a/lin University und
'.l)r'.' 'CoVike, and the institution has
*1 e'en'iiijdr'ed more or less by it. Such
'conduct' makes him anything else but
'administer, and stamps him as the
pvfoce of the "Double-laced" nobility.
Resolution -3, looks upon him ns
".1 well wisher of the Southern peo
ple, VilUck and white." J[ .there ever
fwas a man whose life has been a poi
Wii to a people, whose influence has
1>6en pregnant o/ evij, and whose
'Writings have kept alive the preju
dices of race and tho haired founded
Vb lite relationship of master and
'slave, that man is Dr. Alonzo Web
ster. The mistake of Dr. Webster's
life has been an effort to bring the
Southern people over to his way of I
thinking, inelead of adapting himself |
Resolution -1 asserts that thero are
.comparatively few white persons who
''advocate adequate conq ensation for
our labor, ami those few are subject
yy p/'j ^onn) ostracism in their busi
rush y;ul aocial Jiving." Leaving Dr.
^Vbster and bis kind onto/ the ques
tion, because it is commonly said be
will take advantage of colored labor
ers in the payment of wages,-we
wouhl ask that individual casce of
.ostracism lie specified and that the
white men who refuse adequate com
pensation to colored laborers be
named ; a simple denial is worthless ;
we want facts and their proof. Let
us have them.
?Resolution 5, says the colored peo
ple are not satisfied'with tho wages
'paid for their labor, price of re#ls
Itihd of goods they purchase on credit.
We know that the price paid for la
)jor is low, but there is no discrimi
nation made between white and black
|aborcrs. This is a matter to be reg
nluted exclusively by the laws of sup
ply and demand, and not by legisla
iion 'And combination. The same may
V'soi'd' i'il reference to the purchase
of suppljep and rent of lands.
' The last resolution sets forth mild
ly that this condition of affairs is not
Calculated 'to'Inspire Hie confidence
of the colored people in those who
profess to bo friends aud urge ihem:
to stay hero. The whites desire the
confidcuco of the blacks und we bo
lievo they have }t ,in every thing but
politics, wo believe they are friends
to each oilier and hnvo lived In har
mony and peace ever since J87G,
when the Democracy obtained control
of the State government. It is not
their duty, however, to persuade the
blacks to remain here. They have
never done so aud we hope they nev
er will. If the negroes desire to go
to Kansas, Liberia or eiaewhere let
jthem go, and go in peace. Every
I man is entitled in this .country to go
and come as he pleases, provided ^ic
does so as tho law directs. The
whites arc not and never wero de
pendent on the colored people, and
any such idea entertained by them
will prove ruinous to their race as!
well as lo their material prosperity.
To sum up the whole matter, this
so-called mass mooting was called
and these resolutions written in the
interest of Mr. Webster, anil adopted
as resolutions usually are by the vote
of half-dozen persons as an off-set
to the reply of a committee oT white
citizens to his Tribune letter. The
influence of this meeting will reach
tho Northern mind as Dr. Webster
designs, and will probably catch the
Northern ear, because they will be
lieve the meeting to have becu a
grand mass meeting of all tho color
ed citizens, instead of a few hundred
hungry men, women and children,
who eared but little for speeches
or resolutions; they will believe it
enthusiastic, instead of lukewarm
and indifferent, and they will believe
the resolutions accurately reflect the
sentiment of the entire colored race,
instead of the sentiments of Straker
and a few disappointed aspirants.
As a journalist wc would desire a
different state of affairs, but can nev
er hope for a change so long as Dr.
Webster ami his sympathizers per
sist in agitating old prejudices and
giving circulation tn individual re
ports rather than the true stale of
affairs as they ought to find them ex
isting. Dr. Webster's professed
sphere is religiou, not polities, aud
he should bring forth the fruits of
spirit* not those of the flesh.
Towns, built up now, have their
streets located before a house is erect
ed recording to some plan agreed
upon which might beat conduce to the
beauty of the place and the conven
ience of the inhabitants in the aggre
gate ; but our older towns, like Or
angebiirg, were laid out to suit the
convenience of each settler without
regard to that of any one who should
follow, consequently the streets are
narrow, crooked and short, and the
houses for the most part irregular in
location, in construction and unsight
ly. To remedy this evil in such
towns becomes a matter of serious
thought by the Mayor and Council,
aud often a matter of no inconsidera
ble expense and inconvenience to the
inhabitants. As a general rule in
laying off new streets, regard is had
to the value of the property tbrough
which they are to puss as well as to
the regularity of the town. When
the two conflict it is better always to
sacrilico regularity and a to preserve
the value of the property. If, how
ever, the necessities of the town de
mand that a new street must be loca
ted, it should bo done with us little
injury to property as possible, and in
every case its full value be paid by
the council. The property of a citi
zen ought never to be sacrificed to
the public good, but full remunera
tion ought to be given for the proper
ty appropriated. Thcro is no imme
diate demand in Orangeburg for a
new 6treet beside the one in piocess
of construction. The prolongation
*>f that street to the Fair Building
will strike loo high up to meet the
demand, nor could it be opened with
out very serious damage to the prop
erty through which it will pass ; hence
the belter policy is to abandon the
project until the demand becomes
pressing and immediate, which will
allow ample time for the property
holders to prepare themselves to meet
the necessity. There is, however, a
very pressing demand for imprcying
the condition of those already located.
Besides Russell street, which is al
ways crowded with wagons, there is
scarcely a rospectabje drive in town.
Washes are met with iu many places
and often dangerous to persons travel
ing at night. Indeed our streets pre
sent more the appearance of country
roads badly kept than neat thor
oughfares of a live town. If the at
tention of the Council could be direct
ed to the matter and a reasonable
share of the funds bo appropriate*} to
I necessary improvements, greater in
ducement would bo offered to pur*
chasers of lots than opening new
streets and keeping them in bad re
pair. '"' 1 '
Colored Citizens, Beware.
Certnfn parties, who are medita
ting a move '.o Kansas of some other
more congenial climate than Orange
burg County, arc frying to pbtain the
signatures of five hundred colored
men to a pledge for the payment of
81 each. It is assorted that the ob
ject is to create a fund for the dofense
of any Radical before the coui.ts who
may commit a crime during th,e cam.
paign of 1880T Our colored people
certainly will not take stock in any
such un enterprise. Fraud is plaiuly
written on its face; for tho moment
the five hundred dollars arc obtained
certain colored dignitaries will leave
Orangehurg County aud the untortu
natc dupes who have signed the dol
lar pledge may whistle for their
money. Wo Joel assured that our
colored .citizens bavo learned some
lcssouB.from the experience of the
lust dozen years and hope that one of
the lessone is, never to trust a Rad
ical carpet-bagger, much Less to put
even one dollar into his bauds.
After the whites had nearly ail left
tewn for the picnic grounds of the
Edisto Rifles on the 4th of July, run
ners were sent among the colored
people, ordering them to attend a
Radical pow-wow to bo huld near the
residence of the Rev. Alouzo Web
ster, of New York Tribune notoriety.
A goodly number obeyed tho sum
mons and a respectable crowd assem
bled about a stand erected lor the oc
casion in rear of the dwelling.
S. L. Duncan called the meeting to
order and stated that the object was
to celebrate the 4th of July in a mass
meeting and to discuss the present
political questions. He then intro
duced E. W. M. Mucke}-, who, in his
usual style, addressed his fellow Re
publicans, saying that they had met
together to discuss the present situa
tion of the country. The campaign
of 1880 will soon be upon us and we
must keep our ranks closed up or we
will lose the next Presidential elec
lion, lie said : "You must all come
to the polls and cast your ballots,
whether the Democrats steal them or
not. You alj know this ticket" (draw
ing a tissue ballot from his pocket.)
Someone asked if many of the color
ed people voted that ticket? Mackcy
said : 441 don't know whether they
did or not, but O'Connor saj's so."
He wanted all the colored people to
turn out manfully at the next elec
tion aud promised them that Grant
would be the next President if he
wanted it; if not, then some cue like
Grant, or of his style. He also said
that- ihn Democrats wanted him Ko
leave the state, but he would not un
til the next election was over, the re
sult of which would decide his course
The next speaker introduced was
Rev. Alonzo Webster, who lead his
letter published in the New York
Tribune aud made a speech, all the
same time. He said he had traveled
all over the Stutc and the conduct of
the mcmberr of his conferences prov
ed his letter to be true, for many of
them COldd nol attend conference be
cause the Democrats said further em
ployment would not be given to these
who should attend. He wanted all
in attendance nt the meeting to stick
to the parly, and assured them that
they would finally obtain their freed
om and be able to enjoy it too. The
next election would not be like the
last, for he was sure at some of the
polls there were one hundred and fifty
votes, and only two whije men voted.
At such polls the colored people were
entitled to the majority, but were
only allowed four or five voles. He
also said the same crowd ot Demo
crats voted four or five times a day.
If the statement in his letter about
the colored pcoplo getting nothing
for their labor is not true, he could
prove it by showing a piece of money
that was issued by oue Mr. Bisbou to
pay ofT Ids hands, and not dim for col
lection until 1885. He said further
that he had done more for the bene
fit of the colored people than any
other man in tho county.. tyefcrring
to Clullin Univcisity, he said he,
through his influence, had paid over
$2,000 and now it was occupied by
another who gave him no credit forj
thp same. In fact, he did not wish!
them to give him ajjy credit.
The next speaker was D. A.. Stra-J
kcr, who .said the Pcmocrats had
promised many things but did ju_>l j
fulfill one promise. First, they hail!
promised schools, but have had them |
opened only two months, and if tljey
did pot get a better showing, the col
ored people would leave the Stale.
His speech yvas conservative but he
war. radical in his resolutions.
^he next speaker was George Boli
ver, who, in a quiet way and smiling
manner, said he had been invited to
the fish trap, but tlmro was so many
traps for him until he was tired of
trapping. He hoped the people would
go homo and go quietly, for there
were many at the meeting who had
no.corn in their corn houses, but de
fended on tho corn house of some
one else. Ho wanted all, while they
remained here, to live friendly with
their white fellow men. He had been
watching things for some lime, and
the current iu niuny Tcspccts has
changed during tho last few years
from what it once was. Ho had not
come to make a political speech, but
simply to give tho coloied people
good advice- if they would take it.
He advised them to try to become
independent, and if they did not like
the present situation, they could go
The next speaker introduced was
Rev. Gooscly, who stated that he
was from -Canada, had lived there
many years, and on the flrst of next
October would leave for Kanau?. if
any one wanted to go to that State
he could be communicated with
through Dr. Webster or D. A. Strak
er aud in this way obtain all tho ne
cessary information before a decision
was had to leave South Carolina.
This ended the speaking and the
celebration. Taking a bird's eye
view of the whole matter the meeting
seemed to be gotten up onlj- and
solely in the interest of Dr. Alonzo
Webster, and tho burden of the
whole discussion was his famous let
ter in the New York Tribune. The
voters present did not seem to take
any stock in the meeting, not one
leading colored man from the coun
try had a word to say ; no* did they,
so far as your reporter knows, ex
press a desire to say any anything.
Tho speeches were listened to and re
ceived for what they were worth,
which was ut a heavy discount upon
the old issue of Radical speeches.
The colored people arc evidently
growing tired of such nonsense, and
will have but little more of it, if their
wishes are consulted.
Now came the tug of war and the
din of tho battle could bo distinctly
heard throughout the crowd. Men,
women and children wanted to know
where the dthner was, but none could
tell?not even a scent of hums and
chickens could be had from any di
rection. Somo said that Webster,
Mackey and Boliver wero eating it
all up. It was given out at every
church that Webster was going to
give a Foilrth of July dinner and
that all hands must come to eat it.
When we got here and asked for din
ner, behold J tho New York Tribune
and Webster's letter is given us in
stead which did not rest very well on
hungry storaacks. Tho crowd were
very much dissatisfied and many
went home mad as wet hens.
Resolutions wero rend und adopted
which could not bo had. On motion
of Dr. Webster it was resolved that
the resolutions he published in the
county papeis. By-Standeu;
At a meeting of colored people,
held at Dr. Webster's grove, and
gotten up by him and his friends, on
July 4, at which Dr. Webster read
his letter recently publislted in the
New York Tribune, Uta following
preamble and resolutions were
adopted and requested to be forward
ed to tho Qrangeburg Times, New
York Tribune and the Ouanukbuuo
Democrat with the request that they
Whereas, we have heard read a let
ter written by Dr. Alonzo Webster
to the New York Tribune on the sub
ject of emigration of the colored peo
ple from this State in which arc stat
ed our feelings on this question as
well as many of tho causes that have
induced us to entertain our present
sentiment on this subject. Resolved
First, That we, the colored people,
in mass meeting assembled, indorse
the sentiments expressed in said let
ter as the just and correct sentiments
of the colored people of Orangeburg
Second, That we recognize Dr.
Webster as our friend and faithful
worker in tho ministry of the gospel
amongst us?as one who in tho past
as in the present has interested him
self in our spiritual welfare and in
our moral, civil and educational in
terests, without regard to his person
al comfort and convenience, und as
one who is not double-faced nor a
seeker of Southern popularity at the |
expense of our rights and privileges
Third, That we look upon Dr.1
Webster as a well wisher of the
Southern people, black and white, a
sentiment he has ofteu expressed by
words and emphasized by deeds, and
we heartily approve of his courage in
defending our rights |and censuring
our wrong-doers, and regard such
acts as no just cause for unjust cen
sure or criticism.
fourth. That we readily confess
l)iat there are muny white persons in
our midst who earnestly desire our
\yelfaro and tho establishment of
peace and harmony among tho races,
and advocate adequate compensation
for our labor, but that they are com
paratively so few as to be unable to
do any good and are subject to per
sonal ostracism in their business and
social liyjng, should they dare to ex
press their opinions in our behalf.
Fifth. That wo aro not satisfied
with the wages paid for our labor,
and tho frequent unjust dealings of
many of those from whom wo bjvve
to buy or j^nt lands, or purchase
goods to enable us to mak> our
[crops ; in Unit we are charged extrav
agant prices for such goods us we
need and at tho close of tho year ore
left nothing to bettor our condition.
Sixth, That this condition of af
fairs as at present exist is not calcu
lated to inspire us w,Ub conQdence
I in those who profess to be our friends
I and urge us to stay with them, bnt
calculated to turn our eyes to some
places whero justice may bo obtained,
labor respected and rights secured.
