THE THOMPSON SCHEME.
The Washington Post has the sa
f,'ucity to see very clearly what the
South needs, and the boldness to state
'"ft ncjd very frankly. It pro
nounces the scheme to deport the
Air .-Americans to the Isthmus of
Panama "too silly for serious con
sidcTJilion," cruel, malignant and des
potic. It remarks:
"Tin re is no conceivable excuse for
applying to the black drone and para
site any treatment which ignores his
white t-iual and imitator. The lat'ter
is as objectionable as the fornuvhe
is more so, in fact, because, his in-

it "It is a
VVL,V with mis'-hl^-1

everywhere. One feels their injurious
effect, in all directions. There is no
reason why society should be re
quired to support them. Society has
a right to protect itself against per
sistent and incorrigible t'qes. Even if
these drones did nothing worse than
set an evil and a dangerous example,
they would still be legitimate subjects
for the law's reproving discipline."
All this is true*, but the effect of the
vote of this ignorant and mischievous
rabble is not noticed. It is that vote
which downs such men as Hampton

recommends- the enactment and enstrict

such a law would be cf great benefit.
But would officers elected by the mob

say: "That law was made for nig

Aye, there's the rub.
A communication from the Mayor
to the City Council of Atlanta con
tains some sentences which call for a
careful examination and we there
fore quote them, as follows:. "While
there had been several beastly crimes
attempted by black brutes upon white
women during the past few weeks, yet
I do not believe that violence would
have been resorted to if it had notStates

al newspaper extras that were con
tinually flooding, the streets and the
reports they contained in some in
stances, were, upon investigation,
found to be utterly void of any founda
tion. According to all the information
that I have the victims of Saturday
night's outbreak were industrious,
law-abiding Negroes who had no rea
son to expect such treatment."
It will be noticed that the mayor
explicitly states that tV beastlv
crimes were merely ATTEMPTED,
not perpetrated, and does not assert
that the beastly crimes were attempts
at rape. In fact, thei'e is no evidence
of rape or even an attempt at rape
and the probability is that the whole
story of outrage is an unscrupulous lie

THE GREAT PROBLEM.
At a recent meeting of the Ameri
can Missionary Association, held in
Oberlin, Ohio, Dr. Gladden said in
"The legacy left us by emancipation
is the care of the Afro-American race
in the United States. It is a national
problem. The burden of this obliga
tion rests on the whole nation, as
many of the wisest southern men in
"The problem as it confronts us in
volves the principles on which our

plantation hand alongside the mule
practically without any rights of citi
zenship or a movement in the direc
i tion of recognizing him as a citizen in
the full sense of the term."
Mr. Schurz predicted the condition
of things which actually exists at
present, the object of which is to
duce the Afro-American to a perma
nent condition of serfdoma mere
plantation hand. This involves the
principles upon which our govern
ment is founded and also* decides
whether government of the people, for
the people and by th% people shall
perish from the earth.
As Dr. Gladden remarked:
"To keep four niillions in slavery!
who were born and reared in that
condition, was one thing to reduce
nine millions to serfdom, after they
have been fifty years free, is quite
To attempt to .reduce ten millions
of freemen to serfdom would be a
hazardous experiment, but the South
ern leaders are foolhardy enough to
attempt it. Their most salient "char
acteristic is an idiotic propensity to
state of the provisions of an inter
national treaty. This seems to be in
accordance with common sense.
The United States certainly occupies
an extremely ridiculous position if
she cannot carry out any treaty she
may make, Yet in the trouble with
Italy caused by the Inching of cer
sometimes tain Italians in New Orleans,
conceded that our governswati
ment was actually unable to carry out
the provisions of the treaty with that
country. It was a most humiliating
confession to make, and Mr. Blaine,
the Secretary of State was compelled
to get down upon his knees to Louisi
ana and beg that haughty common
wealth to render some satisfaction to
the offended nation. The Constitu
tion expressly states that all treaties
made by the authority of the United
are the supreme law of the
land, but Mr. Root seems to be the
first official to discover that fact.
The Afro-Americans of the .'South
have been savagely scored, scores of
times,' because they were careless
about voting when they could do so.
But. after all, they seem to be not
rifuch worse than other folks for a

As to the desirability of a residence
in San Francisco, official reports af
ford the following information.:
"Robberies are reported at all hours
of the day. Many murders have been
committted. Burglars ply their trade
without serious hindrance. Highway
men hold up their victims in the busy
streets in broad daylight."
In view of the foregoing the fear of
moral contamination, which has seg
regated the Japanese children in sep
arate schools. seems a little far
fetched. We can not see where even
Atlanta would gain by swapping her
Afro-Americans off to San Francisco
for an equal number of Anglo-Saxons.
Vardaman says "The race question
must be settled, and .that very soon."
We must' admit that Vard is a shrewd
observer. There is nothing in the
way of settling the question but the
Afro-Americans, and the Cubans and
the. Filipinos, and the Japanese and
the Hindoos, and the Russians and the
Jews, and the Utes and the Mexicans
the South Americans, and the
Africans, et al. All that is required
is a simple twist of the wrist as
Vardy has demonstrated.
The Evening Star, referring to the
Japanese problem, remarks: "The
people of San Francisco are guilty of
a race prejudice which calls for em
phatic rebuke and prompt disavowal."
Of course it does race prejudice is a
shameful thing when it threatens to
result in a loss of a whole lot of trade.
