'on county noently beca <e they ri ; ised to rid? m "Jim Cro'.*' car, ha- ?Mven rise 'o considerable stir among the negrota in that coun ty and elsewhere. The N. ?v uT. '? Railway runs through West Virginia i to Maryland into Hagerstown, and I its otticrrs enforced the law in both ?? of those States, re<|Uiring the races ( to ride in separate cars. Coveruor i Atkinson, of West Virginia, was ap? pealed to by the negroes for redress, j and iu an interview he says railroads in West Virginia cannot discrim? inate against any race in the matter of passenger transportation, there being no law providing separate coaches for white and colored people, and hence the \. ?S; W. officers made j themselves liable for damage by their ! action. We fail to see the wisdom of the colored people objecting to riding in the coaches provided for them by the railroad. The lew re quires the cars to be furnished equality in point of comfort and convenience, ami the whites have no more right in the cars for the col ored people than the negroes have in the cars for whit? people. There is no discrimination against either race, the law only provides separation, and thus averts difficulties that of ten riso between the races on train*. Ciood colored people, like pood whiff people, do not wish to intrn de th*?m | selves where thev are not wanted and we snpjiose all this kicking i< j from negroes who do their race mon j harm than good.
