He Doesn't Believe Negroes Should
Be Appointed to Offloe on Account
Fred Douglas, tho colorod leader, Is in
Georgia, lie was Interviewed at Thomas-
villo by a correspondent of the Atlanta
CoiittiUUion. Concerning lus reception In
tho South ho said:
"My reception lias been almost court
eous, I am no stranger to me nouinorn
peoplo, and have no troublo in getting on
with tho bolter olemont of Iho whltos. To
illustrate: When Phillips was so cruelly
murdorcd in Arkansas for trying to inves
tigate election frauds, my business took
mo to I.itlle Uock. On my arrival I mot a
rcbu(T by being refused a meal at a depot
restaurant Hut littlo lator in tho day I
rccuivod with great courtesy in the
Hcuato chamber, ami voted tho privilege of
the floor. I naturally forgot the slight of
tho small restaurant keeper."
"Are you satisfied with the progress of
your race since tho war?"
"I'erieciiy. l am amucu mat n suouiu
ho so great. Tho truth Is no peoplo wcro
ever emancipated under more unfavorable
circumstances than tho colored peoplo of
thoHouth. The Israelites-wcro told to
borrow what they noodod, and they did
borrow and have niado good boiruwers
over since. When 20,Ihm),(H10 Russian
serls were emancipated they woro given
three acres ouch and supplies, but
my icop1o were simply turned looso; not
emancipated and set up to live liko free
men, but turned loose to starve miserably.
They were not freed in time of peace and
good feeling, and by regular conrso of law,
but their shackles were burst frum them
violently by war, and they were set adrilt
to shift us they could among their former
muster, who were naturally sore over de
feat Thu wonder to inn is that they
managed to live at ull. Hut they have
lived and thrived, multiplied and pro
gressed, in all thing which go to make
in sulmtantial irri-alness. My heart is
warmed with grulitudo when I travel
among them and see them so prosperous
"Whaluhmit the Southern policy and
tho race problem?"
"I don like either expression," replied
Pouiila. "lliero should be no Hotilhurn
iiollev or Western policy or Northern Pol

question of social rights. I have nothing
In do with Unit. If civil rights are ocurT

"What about building up a Kepubliean
party among tho whiles in the South?"
"1 ho bent way to do thai is for tho Re

so much the condition of tlio soil as the
timo that favors tho successful growth of

if that crop is projiorly prepared for, it

If farmer would always sow their gross

soon as I had taken holt a bottlo ot Hood's
Barssparllia, my appetite was restored, and
my stomach felt better. I have now taken
nearly three bottles, and I never was so well."
