POLITICAL SLAVERY SOUTH.
Sad Plight of Poor White and Helpless
Colored Citizens.
Speaking at a meeting of the E. C.
Stokes Republican club in Camden. N.
J., recently, tlie Hon. Joseph C. Man
ning of Alabama gave it as his opin
ion that the condition of the poor
whites in the south before the war and
now bears out the assertion that those
who' would exploit the black man be
cause he is black and helpless will not
hesitate to sap the vitality that is
in the life of the white man who
may be poor, ignorant and defenseless:
thut the repression of the masses of
the whites in the south is just as
marked, through the employment of
the methods of the southern political
oligarchy, as was this repression before
the civil war; that the slaveholding mi
nority ruled the south during Slav
ery; that the less than :iOO.(XM» holders
of slaves controlled with iron handed
despotism is not a bit more remarkable
or startling than is this present condi
tion.
Mr. Manning also said that in a
dozen former Confederate states which
now. although having an aggregate
number of 4.000.000 white males of
voting age. elected the entire southern
representation in congress in 1910 on
900,000 ballots and dominated these
states in the last presidential election
on 1,000,000 votes.
The aggregate Democratic vote in
these states does not equal the 2.000."
000 blacks of voting age. who have
been made subject citizens by the strut
egy and subterfuge of legislative acts,
which eliminate not only them from
the voting, but which were planned t«»
eliminate together with them fcic
masses of the mountain and hill coun
try whites, who have in recent year>
gone into political action against the
political bosses of the southern oil*
