'* THE CONSTITUTION,
^s
;s. Letter From Mr. Altlieus Johnson of
L>" WHHbliiKton.
Washington, D. C., March 1.1S95.
>e- As throwing some light upon tbe extent to
V. which an educatlonul ({ualitlcatlon would alist
lect suffrage in South Carolina, I call your attention
to the following figures:
lie The census returns of the United States for
y. 1890 show the population of the State, above
its ten years ot age, to be 802,400, of which 382,17-1
ue were white aud 470,232 were colored. Of the
832.174 wiiltes, '9,443. or 17.9 per cent., were 11to
literate; of tbo 470,232 colored, 301,202, or 04.1
go per cent., were Illiterate.
n The relative proportion of males and feitir
t h?? untrinin vprv
be close lu South Carolina, the excess of iemales
he beiug less than one and one-seventh per cent;
Jd and the relative proportion of Illiteracy, as
he between the sexes, is also very close, namely,
ty 12.3 per cent, ol the males ana 4T.6 per cent, of
females.
ed The figures first above given will, therefore,
>t, pretty well uidlcate the relative ratio of 1111>y
teracy m the male population above twentyone
years of age ciaseed according to color,
in namely, 17 per cent, ol the white aud 01 per
n- cent of the colored are illiterate.
Illiteracy in the above figures means Inability
lty to read or write. That Inability, however,
ought hardly to be uikeu as decisive cl one's
ol fitness to wield tiie ballot; for many persons
tie whose Judgment In the practical affairs of
tile is excellent and whose moral character In
i>y good, are unable to read aud write; and yet
ly. nobody would regard It us Impolitic or unsafe
tb to trust such persons with the ballot. The
practical question is how to give it to such
re- persons without also giving It to others who
ir- are In no sense worthy of It. Permitting every
property owner to vote without regard to
ey bis educational attainment*, will answer the
re- question in a manner; and still there may be
w, persons here and there deserving of the bairn,
lot who are neither freeholders nor yet able
to read aud write. The only way to reach
ir- these latter persons If any such there be, i?
1st to permit some otlicer, or officers (for instauce,
lis the Supervisor, or Hoard ol' Registration,) to
h? hainuuciHl iiiniKi- the law with the Dower of
lining a little judgment or discretion m deid
terming the lnujiligenceaud fitnessof all Hilt
ilp erate non-lreeholders that may apply for the)
3vv elective sranchlse; and hence the alternative
a- test that 1 put into the educational provision
re- which I suggested last week, namely, that, if
Hi- a person were not able to read any article of
til- the constitution or any section of the statutes
of the Stale, he should be able to understand
and reasonably explain the same when read
to him."
In some constitutions a much great margin
than the above is left for the operation of the
Judgment of election otneers; for Instance, in
Connecticut, where the constitution prescribe-,
among other requisites for voting,
, that tbe person "shall sustain a good moral
character." It is nearly always the case that
something must be left to the faithfulness ol
las the officers who are charged with the admlnm
tstrallou of the law.
