- Ott. our first pago wo publish a lottor
from Prof. Bookor T. Washington, of
Tuskegee, Ala. j writtou to n promiuont
negro lu North Carolina. Ho is tho most
prominent loador of bis raco, as woll as
a most sensible and practical man. Hoing
a otoso obsorvor of mon and affairs bo
h-vs learned tho lesson that his raco bas
boon slow to leam, vis: That tho best
.friends tho nogroos bavo aro tho whito
tuon of ? he South.
Tho mistako the negroes have boon
making BO long is supposing that, thoy
woro advancing thoir interests by antogo
nibing tho whito mon in politics. It is
oloarly to thoir intorost to coaso tho op
position which has been manifested in
tho past. Tho negro's homo is iu the
South, and boro ho finds steady employ
ment at tho hands of his whito neigh
bors." Ho is accordod tho rights of free
citizenship, ?md ho can labor unmolested
in any of tho lines of industrial pursuit.
Novor has a Southern State furnished
such an instance of hostilo opposition as
has boon dono within tho past fow
roontbB in tho Stato of Illinois, and that,
too, with tho sanction of tho Govornqr,
who is a Republican. There tho negro
has boon driven from tho mines at tho
point of tho bayonet and forced to lcavo
tho Stato. Bloody coull iota between tho
whito and black miners have been fre
quent, and mob violonco has boon meted
out to tho negro becauso ho wanted to
ic is for an entirely di it?rent cause that
tho 'mob bas sometimes visited swift
punishment upon certain individual of
fenders among the negroes in tho South.
Thoro is ono crimo that always Calls
forth a speedy reckoning, but Vu these
instances tho anger of tho whito man is
stirred against tho individual offondor,
and not against tho raco. Should a
whito man bo guilty of a similar offense
ho would moot with tho samo condign
Truo, tho raco problem is tho most
lan ions ono demanding tho attontion of
both races. Thoro is, and will continuo
to bo, much ncod for thc oxerciso of
patience and forbearance A question
of such far-reaching consequences can
not bo sottlod in tho eourso of a fow
years. It has boen thirty-four j.lars
sinco tho negro obtained his freedom,
and ho has not yet learned his exact
BtntuB ns a race. Ono generation has
almost passed away, and others will
doubtless do so before his station is
recognized and, established. In the
meantime ho should learn to labor and
to walt. Tho decrcos of tho God of
nat ure muft bo porforincd by both races,
and it is certain that tho Anglo-Saxon is
tho king among tho nations of tho earth.
Ho is king of tho Old World and king of
tho Now. Ho is such by tho divino right
of a Buporior innate manhood. He is tho
ruler among mon wherever found, but
bis rule ii? that of justice, morey and
truth. Tho highest phase of civilization
is attained undor his sway, and its bene
ficent result? will bo shared by tho negro
as a raco just in proportion to his sub
mission to thc inevitable decrees of fate.
Wo bavo novor felt any undue anxiety
over tho ultimate solution of tho race
problom along right lines, however dark
and foreboding the situation sometimes
appears. It is better to look on the
bright sido of tho picture and OX peet t lie
conservativo sonso of both races, under
Divino guidance, to achieve the highest
good of All.

"Tho present prospect is that 100,000

Philippine islands. The difllcultios in
tho way aro those of lighting guerillas in

could force my way from one end of tho

At tho last association only four

Tho Denvordam Association has some
