General Stoneman on the retired list as a
colonel of infantry
The Senate took up the bill Butlers on
negro emigration and Ingalls addressed
i Senate The following are extracts from
Ingalls address On toe threshold of
our second century we are confronted with
the most formidable and port ntious prob
lem ever submitted to a free peo
ple for solution complex unprece
dented involving social moral and political
consideration party supremacy and in the
estimation of many though not in my own
the existence of our system of govern
ai iaent Its solution will demand all the re
Sources of the statesmanship of the pres
enl and of the future to prevent crisis
that may besome a catasthrophe I should
be approached with candor with solemn
ity with patriotic purpose with fearless
i scrutiny without subterfuge and without
reserve The line of cleavage between the
wnites and blacks is becoming constantly
more distinct and perceptible Politically
they are affiliated with the victors in the
I late civil war socially and by locality and
residence they are associated with the
vanquished Fred Douglass the most illus
trious living representative of the negro
race once said to me he thought that
as prejudice and social and political an
tagonism disappeared the races would
blend coalesce and become homogenous I
I do not agree with him Such a solution
in my judgment would perpetuate the vices

After praising the colored people for their
fidelity t the south aunng tne war ne
said I seems incredible that irratitude
should not have defended and shielded
them from the hideous and indescribable
wrongs and crimes of which they have been
for a quarter of a century the guiltless and
unresisting victims J
Ingalls went to speak of the determina
tion of the south t eliminate the negro as
a factor from its political and social history I
and quoted evidence on that point from
Democratic newspapers and Democratic
politicians He particularly instanced the
recent Jackson Miss election and quoted
the statement that the election at Jackson
was the most outrageous overseen the
town had been taken possession of bj
toughs with rifles It was said that
Senator Georges son was one of the rifle
men Resuming Ingalls said Pretexts
for this condition of things all rest upon
the fear of a negro supremacy To this
nullification of the constitution the people
of the north have apparently consented
The south is standing upon a volcano the
south is sitting on a safety valve Alieadj
the mutterings of discontent by hostile
organizations are heard The use of the
torch and the dagger is advised1 deplore it
but as God is my judge I say no
other people on the face of the earth have
ever submitted to the wrongs and injustice
which have been for twentylive years put
upon the colored men of the south without
revolution and blood
Inralls went on to warn the south of the
natural consequences of its course toward
I the colored people Despotism make
i Nihilists Ingalls then spoke of an outrage
committed in Aberdeen Miss on the daj
i of Jefferson Davisluneral when German
tinner a citizen of Indiana accidentally in
the course of his work let fall from the
house roof a cable which had been stretched
across the street by the citizens bearing
an effigy of the secretary of war wIth
the inscription Red Procter Traitor
and for this accident the tinner was brut
ally whipped by one McDonald receiving
at least two hundred lashes and being
nearly blinded and terribly lacerated Mc I
Donald was fined 30 The citizens sub i
scribed twice the amount discharged the I
fine paid for the broken whip bought a
railroad ticket for the victim and sent him
out of town I be continued out
rages like that had been inflicted on an
American citizen in England France
Spcin or anywhere on the face of the
fy earth and there had not been instan
9 taneous disavowal or reparation u a million
men in this country would spring t arms
to avenge the outrage and wrong But this
outrage was inflicted in Mississippi the
perpetrators go unwhipped of justice
Race antagonism applied only t colored
men I they were all Democrats the
race question would be over Four solu I i
tions of the problem have been suggested
Emigration extermination absorption and
disfranchisemcnt But there was still a
fifth solution which never had been tried I I
and that solution was justice I appeal to I
the south he exclaimed uto their experi
ment of justice Stack your arms open I
your ballot boxe3 register your voters and
voters black and white and i your expd
ment has been fairly and honestly tried it 1
appears that the African race is incapable
of civilization i it apptars that the com I
plexion burnt upon nisi bv the sun is in <
compatible with freedom I will pledge my
self t consult with jon about some
measure of solving the race problem
I But until then nothing can be don o The I
Ak citizenship of the negro must be absolutely
at recognized His right to vote must be
admitted and the ballots cast must be
honestly counted These are the fcbbuitial
preliminaries the conditions prec tntfll
any consideration and ulterior and funda
mental questions of race supremacy or
race equality in the United States north 1
or south Those who freed the slaves ask
nothing more they will be content with I
nothing less The experiment must be
iairly tie

Simon Anderson was the name of the hack
man and Mrs Reprogal the neighbor Just

on the Northern road dashed upon
it utterly wrecking it and throwing
the unfortunate victims thirty feet
away A Iine ear old daugter of Mr
and Mrs Payne miraculously escaped with
a slight scalp wound The driver and
engineer are each censured for lack of
caution but the absence of the flagman at
the crossing none being kept there by the

principal cause of the horror as the view
of both the engineer and carriage driver
was shut off almost if not wholly by the

SAN FRANCISCO Jan 23Each day for
the last eight days during which the block
ade of the Central Pacific and the Califor

Southern Pacific officials have felt hopeful
that the following day would see the block

ever and the tracks have been in snow
almost as soon as cleared No attempt will

Cascade and Summit for some time but as
soon as practicable the rotary plows will
be set in motion there On the Oregon line
work is progressing as rapidly as possible

the Samoan Treaty
Trouble with the Sioux Jnuians3Insons and
the Eight Hoar MovementRiclilleberger
Not Expected to Live
LONDON Jan 23The Times says the
Samoan treaty bears a handsome testi
mony to Bismarcks reasonableness
That so complete an equilibrium should
be established is much more than we could

consented to the prohibition of arms and
alcohol and to the land clauses is probably
due to British influence Their insertion
in such a treaty is a remarkable event in
the history of the relations of a civilized
with semicivilized nation
The Standard says that while it is good
theoretically it is likely that difficulties
will arise In any case provision is made
for a revision
