It was lo iw expected that ? x-Governor
Northen's tna^niSoen* >ptech in
Boston woald receive a grext deal of
attention from the pre? of the country?5
It woald bare been m ^st remarkable if
the Northern pr88i, in uo instance;
had not taken issue with him Be
told bis Boston audience the trntb, and
the trntb sometimes hurts. Some of
the Northern people do not want to hear
the trnth. and traa to the biatory of
the world there will alwa\sbe tho=e
who wi'l not believe the troth when
they hear it. This speech h truly refreshing;
to different in tone from
many others delivered to Northern
audiences. Tbe speaker had a ja>t
right to speak as he did, because he as
a private citizen and as Governor condemned
lynching and did what he
could to stop it.
Mr. Northen starts oat with the
truth and ends with the truth. He
dote not mince wards to snit Northern
ears- He begin* by assuring the assemblage
that he "was put quite at
ease, tor thw discussion, beciuse of a
statement accompanying the invitation
' to the effect that the people at the East
bad grown to believe that the people
at the South knew more about thetf
relations and daties to the negro than
the East bad, heretofore, given mem
credit for." He iu affect assumed that
it was true that the Southern people
knew mors about it. and then proceeded
to tell some plain truths, which
we of this section well^now to be
absolutely trae.
We can give orly a tew, and a brief
summary at that, of some of the plain,
tacts that the distinguished Georgian
told his New England friends. He
confessed that be was somewhat embarrassed
in the discussion, "because
of the violent denunciations of the
South that hive appeared, from lime i
to time, in the Northern press, of
which your own city has famished a
large part." How well tbi? fits some
of the publications even since this
speech was delivered in Boston. It took
a bravo man to give as instances of misrepresentation
the writings of Dr.
? Nehemiah Adams, Ida Wells, and
even Harriet Beecher Stowe. Said
Mr. Northen: "The Christian World
(God sare the mark I) speaking of the
--treatment of the negroes at the South
says: wumea auu tuumcu am
whipped; in a nude state, by men in
presence of men and boys. Of course,
there is immorality. Children are
born and grow up in prison. Some
of the States make a regular thing of
breeding people, just as in old slavery
days. This is specially the case la
Georgia, Florida and Texas." When
such a lie as this Ji published, fend be
?ieved, it seems useless to try to disseminate
the troth at the North. Id
reading this statement, we bare been
pnzsltd to know why Sooth Carolina
was sot inclnded with Georgia,
Florida aad Texai.
"Miscegnation," Governor Nerthcn!
said,-"by law will nerer take place in
the Sonth. That may be accepted as
an established faet and settled beyond
question." Some Northern (people
may be very much disappointed that
it ift settled. bat we of the South know
? this ii true. Intermarriage at tbe
North may take place and social
equality may prevail, with that we
are sot concerned. As Governor
Northen says, we merely differ witb
the North in taste.
Possibly the boldest part of the
ex-Governor's speech is that portion
which refers to New England's part in
the slave trade. From some of tbe
newspaper comments these historical
facts must have stung. He reminds
Massachusetts that she built the first
ship to carry on the slave trade. He
quotes from the story of America by
All the Northern State* abolished
? slavery, beginning with Vermont, in
1777, and ending with New Jersey, in
1804. It should be added, however,
thai many of the Northern slave# were
not freed, but sold to the South. The
agricultural and commercial condi_
tions in the North were s^ch as to
make slave labor leas and less profitable,
while in the South the social
order of things, agricultural conditions
and the climate were gradaally
making it seemingly indispensable.
Economical conditions caused a
gradual gravitation of the negroes toward
the South, until, eventually, the
people of the North were rid of 6uch
a? they could dispose of at financial
profit, while some others were set at
liberty, in various ways, and remained
noon the Mil of their original homes."
Spewing of lynching, Governor
Nerthen said that personally be was
opposed to mob violence, bat be asserted
that negroes were lynched at
the South "for the tame reason
they are lynched at ihe North.
I repeat, with emphasis, that violence
for crime is administered without distinction
as to race, when the crime is
thejsame. * * * Until Massachn
Mtts, New York, Illinois, PenneylTani*
and other Slates can control the
wild fary of a cob, let as be done
with denunciations of Georgia when
she tails." Northern newspapers and
polities have a great deal to do with
onr troawes in the South. Speaking
of this Governor Northen said.
Yon need not ask me if I approve
the horrible enactment that occurred
within forty miles of my home a few
weeks ago. God forbid that I should.
-? ' **Do you condemn the bnrnings at
tronerly as was condemned through
the Northern press?" I answer emphatically?jast
as strongly, "Then
you approve the course taken by the
Northern press in tfai matters of lynchf
ings at the South?" Pardon me it. in
, reply, I say that I condemn the course
j of the Northern press upon lynchings
! at the South with ail the vehemence of
an offanded nature. It is incendiary,
unfair and cruel in the extreme.
It it forgotten tkat the people of
Massachusetts, themselves, barned a
negro woman at the state, who naa
been simply suspected, and not convicted,
of poisoning a white man and
his wife? We can't tell what is going
to happen, even in the best regnlated
Negro politics, in my judgment, as
taught during reconstruction and continued
to the present day, seeking to
dominate the white people of the
South, are responsible for most of the
blood that has been spilt, the outrages
that have been perpetrated, asd-the
sorrows that have come to the whites
and negroes of the South. The course
of the Northern press is responsible
for much of the remainder. The South
is a white man's country, and it will
never be delivered over to negroes,
whatever tbe power and influence
brought to bear to force this fearJul
Tn Ma resent charsre to the jury, the
Court sitting in Charleston, "S. C., to
"try certain citizens charged with lynching
a negro in that State, Judge Brawleytaid:
"If it be true that this postmaster
was an incompetent negro, a
stranger and resident of another county,
the .cemmunity that be was appointed
to serve iiad grave and ju3t
grounds of complaint, and tho39 who
are responsible for bis appointment
cannot escape the condeuinatian of
fair-minned men everywhere for the
wrong done to toac community. luvviy
lawfal effort of tbe yeople of Lake
City to redress thei r grievance would
baue bad the sympathy and support of
all louers of order."
How much did the appointmeat of a
negro postmaster ever the protest of
the people of Hoft'dnsvilJe, a town
within the neighborhood of Sail Holt's
residence, and tbe closing of the mail
car8, to force tte white people to patronize
the negro's postoffiie, have to
do with tbe awful tragedies that have
been enacted ia my State? Le: Judge

from the press: <;The shell which goi
opened the momeutous bombardment
of Fort Sumter was fired from a the
mortar located at Fort Johnson on thi
James Island, at 4 30 on the morning off
of the 12th" (April, 1861). On page wa
17, hs say?: "Tbe three mortars in afn

manded by Capt. G. S. James."^ bac

Erect New Lodge?Personals.
From the standstill at which everything
here seems to hive been for the
past year, the wheels of progress have
again been set in motion, and the next
ninety days will see many improvements
in our little "town on the ridge."
For the past few years the building
now med as the high school has been
an eva sore to the neonle and a dis
? r"*? ?
grace to the place, and it "is with plea9wc
see a handsome new school building
commenced on "Ivy Hill." This
is to be 70x30 feet with an 19 feet ceil*
ing, and from this main building will
be an ell 20 feet long by 25 wide. ?
When completed this will give plenty .
of room, and along with its location *
will make it one of the vory beat in J
the county.
The Bank of Rhlgeway has decided i
to build a handsome brick buildiDg to ]
be used as an office. It will be two
stories high and will be on the west
side of Main street, one above Mc- *
Eachern's atore.
Following up the good move of tbe
bank and school, tbe Masons have decided
to tear down their lodge buildiBg
and put in its place a larger one of "\
brick. This building will be 35x80
feet and two stories bigb.
With such a start as this the wheel c
should not be allowed to stop, but
several more stores and residences be
put in, then with some inducements
outsiders could be easily induced to
move to Ridgeway. t
