Bitter political strife raged in
Martinique before the disaster. There
was a distinct cleavage between
whites, mulatoes and blacks. Social
solidarity was wanting. The colony
was in a most degraded condition.

the spoils by right. The greater part
of the public revenues were spent in
salaries and public work was neglect
Socialism was largely to blame for
many of the evils in- the island. It
stirred up discontent among the blacks
to gain their votes. It was aggres
sive, destructive and dangerous. It at
tacked and endeavored to destroy the
sogtx iutatesfev The colony under
these circumstances was going to the
had. The white population was
gradually leaving the island and there
was every prospect of bloody racial
encounters when the eruption took
place. Now all is forgotten. The
exodus proceeds at such a rate as

whites will be left to take part in
race troubles, while the disaster has so
sobered the blacks that they will re
main quiet for an indefinite period.
The Socialists are likely to give the
island a wide berth in the future.
