The Governor believes the present-day cause "f the uprisings i.1 the intermeddling with relations of the whites and blacks in tit - South by ??foils and fanatics," who know no? thing ,it>.nit tin- situation, but think the whole trouble dated frorii the day of emancipation.

As to the disposition to be ni.nl ? of the large p*-r ccntage of illiterate roes the Gov? ernor makes ho suggestion. N?>T itlCADY 'VOW SUFFRAGE.

Tins, were the prime causes of the alienation of the negro. "FANATICS AND FOOLS." "A more Immediate cause is Ihe per? petual Intermeddling with tin- reintl nit of the races in the South by fannlies nnd fn.ds who know nothing about the slum; i.ni. ??They call town meetings and dis? cuss imaginary wrongs of the South? ern upki-.i which do not exist, and de? nounce the Southern white people for crimes they have not committed; they publish in Ihe newspapers grossly ex? aggerated accounts of such crimes as nie committed ngninsl tin negro in the South nnd Hiiiii any retaliation; they write Incendiary letters to turbulent negroes all over tie- South, advising them to arm themselves with Win :. -- tor rifles, and for every guilty rapisl who pays the penalty for his crime, to shoot down the li::t two whit- neu he meets.

Governor Cnhdler say;- the Intermed? dles of the North do not represent a respectable minority, and that tin- law? less and criminal negroes of tin- South constitute less. He continues: THE CAUSE OF LYNCHING. "A few abandoned, reckless; criminal ncgrdes are responsible for ail the as? saults and lym hlngs that have oc? curred, anil their influence on those around them i.-- deplorably ii.nl and far i ?.: hing.

But as because some negroes ????iiimlt this crime, the whole race suf? fers, .*???. because some white men lynch these criminals, ail the while people of the South nre abused. "It Is a slngulur fact, too, that the Pharisaical fanatics who h ive most i" say about 'Apuches,' 'Southern barba rlaiis,' etc., always stress the atrocity of the lynching, but I have in vor yet heart! of one of them saying or doing anything to discourage the crime which provoked it. "Indeed In some cases instead of de? nouncing Iiis crime, they have assailed the character "i" the victim of the brute's lust. This not only encourages bad negroes, but exasperates the friends of Southern womanhood. ANOTIIKB CA US 13 OF FRICTION. ''Another and a continually present cause which contributes to race fric? tion is corrupt politics.
