Nashville. Tcnn., Nov. 14. The
southern quarantine and immigration
convention, which has assumed its new
title of Southern Immigration and In
dustrial association, concluded Its busi
ness, the closing session being devoted
to the reading of several papers on
pertinent topics. During the day ses
sion a letter was read from John Sharp
Williams, in which he expressed the
belief that the solution of the race
nnwnn misrht be found ill a pre
concerted -ffort to bring white people j. elected
of the right sort Into the south as
servants, tenants and farmers. He ad
vocated the formation of a land com
pany with, a capital of at least $1,
OOO.OOO. to buy lands throughout tho
cotton states and sell them ou time to
desirable Immigrants.
"Hopeful" Pha-e of the Case.
A hopeful sign, Williams said, is the
fact that the negro birth rate in tho
co.mtry is decreasing very remarkably,
while the birth rate of the white peo
ple In the gulf states is the largest
anywhere in the world. Williams rec
ommended tho establishment of a
mounted mral police after the Cape j
Colony and Canadian system. "The po- j
litieal phase of the negro problem we!
have pretty well worked out to an ap- j
proximately satisfactory issue." he
WMit on to say, and recommended a
limitation of the franchise to the white
Makes Predictions of tho North.
He prophesied that similar action,
would be taken a generation hence in
Illinois. Indiana and Ohio. He also
favored the rigid enforcement of va
grancy laws and said that if the negro
would net work he must get out of
the Held. The importation of desirable
white immigrants, not only from for
eign countries, but from the north,
was also suggested in the letter.
Would Allure Him to Panama.
N. F. Thompson, of Chattanooga,
advocated the strictest enforcement of
the vagrancy laws with n suspension
of sentence in case the negro would
go to the Panama canal, and In going
into the race problem said that tho

York, the anarchists in Chicago, tho

Prefers the Negro for Work.
W. J. Oliver, of Knoxville, Tenn.,
told of the troubles of contractors in
keeping negroes at work on construc
tion works, but still he preferred the
negro to the Italian or the Chinaman.
New York, Not. 14. B. B. Odell. ex
governor and ex-chairman of the state
Republican committee, said that the
management of the Republican state
campaign was the "most asinine" be
ever know. The whole state ticket, he
said, might just asr well have been
s the result stands- it looks
like a Democratic victorv. and leaves
the Republican party in bad shape with
a national campaign coming on. The
Republicans. he declared, made no cam
paign at all, but put It all on Mr.
H'ighes' shoulders.
Ex-Chairman Was Ignored.
'T heard absolutely nothing," said
Odell, "about any state campaign up
my way. We didn't know there was a
headquarters down here. I wasn't noti
fied of anything that was going on.
My advice was never asked once. Many
of my friends all over the state had
the same experience. Even when Mr.
Hughes was touring my county I was
not notified or consulted. I wasn't in
formed of the smallest details."
Shouldn't Have Butted In.
Continuing. Odell said: "The people,
of this state have always resented the
interference of a president of the Unit
ed States in their local elections. They
have done so since the days of DeWltt
Clinton. I think that the interference
of President Roosevelt did more harm
than good I realize now that 1 made
a mistake when I accepted the chair
manship of the state committee while
I was governor. The people resent of
ficial and outside interference In their
local political affairs. That is why I
sny that the interference of Presideut
Roosevelt in the last campaign did
more harm than good.
Bryan and Hearst a Strong Team.
"I do not wish to appear In the role
of general critic of the conduct of the
campaign, but so far as I can make
out there was no real campaign. We
should have stood for many of the
things that Mr. Hearst advocated, like
the eight-hour law, the three platoon
system for the police and firemen."
Odell said that Hearst was greatly
Htrengthened as a political factor by
his campaign, and that while he might
not be elected president he was now
a man to be reckoned with in the fu
ture. He said that a combination of
Bryan and Hearst would be a hard
one for the Republicans to beat.
Railway Employes Fast Are Getting
Settlements Negotiations in tho
West One OfTer Ilefused.
New York. Nov. 14. There no long
er appears to be any danger of a strike
of railroad employes in the east, as the
situation with reference to the demand
of the members of certain organiza
tions has been considerably cleared.
The New York, New Haven and Hart
ford, and the New York Central rail
roads came to an agreement with com
mittees representing the firemen of tho
two roads affecting the status of the
men on the new electric locomotives,
and the adjustment committee of tho
Erie locomotive engineers announced
that it had conic to an agreement with
the officials of that system. The lire
men's committee will confer further
with the New York Central and the
New York. New Haven and Hartford
oOicials concerning the questions of in
creased wages and shorter hours.
As to western lines representatives
of the trainmen and firemen are nego
tiating with the Pennsylvania lir.es for
an increase Most, the unions refusing
to acce.pt as a settlement the 10 per
cent. Increase already granted. Tho
firemen of the Big Four called on the
oflloers of that road at Cincinnati and
asked that they bo remembered in
that increase of 4 cents an hour grant
ed western firemen. There is a rumor
that the Southern Pacific, Santa Fe
and Salt Fake lines will give a gener
al Increase of wages.
