MAY T. The Tide of rtmlntratlea. CTimes-Democras.] Last week a party of 160 men, women and children reached here from the Nortbwest for settlement In Louisiana. Another perty of 160 from Iowa. Illi nois, Nebraska and Minnesota came In Thursday, destined for Tanglpahoa and Calcasieu perishebs. The movement is the result of the former Immigration of the Western people Into Louisiana, who are so well satisfled with it that they have written bome to thelr friends to coan here whert they can get cheap lands, a fertile Boll and a mild nad pleasant cdlaste. The Ilrge Immigral tion now pourlng Il here Is an evidence of the enucses of the Iowa sad Illinoli r colonies, and It may ressnably be ex peelted to iacrease With every year. The Sprevalence of bllatsrda up North just now will no doubt bring more people South. Here, in our opinion, is the best means of solving the negro problem. Throw open the door of Loulsiana to all white immigrante, encouraging Im migration of this kind in every way, r 5 wipe out the negro majority now In this State, end there will be no negro r question, no race disturbance or differ Snce of any kind. It means an end to all these troubles, and it means better agricultural methods a[ad larger crope. I Louisiana has this remedy within Its rea'b; it should seize it. The pgople from Iowa, IllinoIs, Nebreska and Min. esots are already pouring In here l mot without Invitation; with but little effort on our part, where there are ro hun. dreds comlong to.day, there will soon be thousands, and Louisiana will become whet It ought to be-a white Stae. A Chicago jury has agai declared thabt the law of the leand i. abundantly able to take care of the Anarehist.;( Sthat the pestiferous viper of anareby,I sa importation from foreigo lands, can I be stamped to death, and that the I sooner men with unpronouoaceable nasmes leave their conprinog and their dynamlte and take up with some law. ful calling, the les danger they will I incur of losing their Ilves and liberty, .

[|Harper's Weekly-] The result of the eletioo has obvi ously again directed public ttention : is the Southern Statec to the question of thesariage.

D vI vew like thi efght.box system, whidh rlabels every box t the poll, and rai qu tes all votes to be deposited in the djight box witbpt bints or aids to the Ser, and whash, of course, praci. a tdifhastcahleis the voter who can. 1 not'riddL, hr asew felt td tbe unworthy thei, m l thi propositlon of ao a Q lotatal q~eltleasil is. opely ad.s t vatessd by wee of the leading South p urajournals, oven at tae cost of some Lephtw tatlvee in Ooldress. But 'it dos hot em t ' us that this would: necssarity followt, beaee. it is very qusstionable whether a gualliatioan pppiPlable to all voters could be re. I garded an an abridgment of the right I1 In the sense of thi Constitutifo. The sbt of the wledam of anso edlacational I geanllation aunder the elroumstances I prlnJg trom a difdl ent coneidernatlos ( iThe larger part of the colored voters I and a considerable number of white vo- a ters in the Southern States cannot read, I nd the qoualieation would disreaehlse 8 both classes so long as the disability P should continue. But it would have IM another result, It would probably re. tard education In those States where educatlon is of the mtost vital lnipor . teaes. If the mlen objeot be white u. premay, whatever menaced that au. Wi premany would be instantly covered V with susplolon. But education by v praetilletly enfranchlsinl the colored C voters, would loerese the ohance of a heolored supeese in suelh Btates p SBoth Carolin, Mlisulssppl, and Loul. T elana. To encourage education, there tore, would be to olater that chance, d and under seocb elreumtances an bon. I eat and resolute poitey of Instruction for a the colored people could not be antiel. pated. Thus this simple and legal so. pi lution of the problem, even accompaln. D ed by a surrender ia some Blates of a U degree of representation to Coogtes, and honestly sought as a fair measure L of rellef, wouldt probbsy paraelye the i movement which is essential to the > general and peacefal prosperity of that r1 part of the country, which Is the move: to meat for education. It is alleged, and B we believe with good reasons, that lI since the war the mulatto Is dliappear lnu and the distinctive color line ispr deepening, while the black population inereasms decidedly Iaster than the C white. Under these circumstances an O educatloalqnaslflcastlon for thbseefrtage In the Blates where the colored papulae. In tlon Is in the majority would tend not A only to disfranchlse, but to keep in 1-g A, norance, the large majority of the peo. it( pie of those States. p SAn eduestional qualllcatlon is al ways desirable, but always upon the V condition that there is not only ample th provislon of free lastruction, if not nti compulesry laws, but also that lgenerl perception of the value of education sld which will keep the schools full. Now Fl In a community where the two rases P. live together, but at great disadvantage as to the colored race because of its pre- do vious enslavement, because its color Is T. a perpetual ban, and because the white Ili race proposes to maintanl supremacy J. at any cost. It Is evident that the white ie race, which is undoubtedly in the act usl situation the master race, would pn not favor any change in the conditions MI which menaced its supremacy. The Fl real solution of the problem lies, of IH course, in the simple and natural rele- T. tio among all citizens in the Soothern W States which prevalls in general ia the de Notthern States. But the method of Fe reachblng the solution-that is, bow to Su produce that solution--s not clear. If D1 what we have said be correct, it would A. not be produced by an edueatlonal W quallfeation for the sonrage. That would tbe Jstly regarded u a mesure lnteallonall¥ Inlmicml to the colored sa race, and that belief would of itself by deepen the sense of unfriendliness. fl One of thie surst methods of die- ot pelling that feelnlog would bheo a care- sa ful abetentlon from any policy plainly sr bostilo to rquality of polltical or civil 8 rights. Sociasl relations, as every. o where, must regulate themselveu. The re problem is one of very great impor. p tance, io which all good American TI eitizeae in all the States are Interested, a and Its greot difficultles, especially to as those who are Immediately and locally I concerned, are fully appreciated. We i shall watch with great care and tbs a meeost friendly disposition the manner b nto whicb tbhe advooates of white supre. n mey at all costs, who are also advo- a eate. of an educational qualification for u the franchie, dispose of thebs argument Ii that the one must necessarily conflet e rwltb the other. 1. tej TIE r. c.
