This Is ivtong. It is Illegal. It Is mmi
I strons. But It is true.
I Never, tieer In a thousand years will
! the nei-ro. North or South, be allowed to
i govern In this republic, even where bis
inuinrltlcs ate plain. We might ns lu ll
i fix tint fact In our minds to stay. No
statute can eradicate, no public opinion
I can remove, no armed force can o-r-'
throw the inherent, Invincible, Indestruct
ible. ai,e-. if you will, the unscrupulous
en par Ity and determination of the Anglo-
Saxon rnce to rule.
In a land of light and liberty
.ii n ..t-
of enlightenment atcl law, the wome n of
the South are prisoners to clanger and to
fear. While your women tv iy walk from
suburb to suburb and Irom township to
township without escort anel without
alarm, there is not a woman of the South,
wife or daughter, who would be permltt-el
or who would dan- to walk at twilight
unguarded throuch the residence streets
nl a populous town or to ride the outside
highivnvs at midday.

Tor the ballot, revereiice ror tlie eonstl

There be siat'ds. that lidpli-.-s and un
fortunate Inferior. For his sake the on
rilfferei.ee hns widened between the sec
tions ot our common country. Over his
bine lc body we have slu-d rivers of bio.
and treasure to emphasize our separate
coniiellnns of his destiny.
Atid yet as the crimson tide rolls awiv
Into ihe years we realize that all tins
blood and treasure anel travail was spent
In vain, and that the negro, whom a mil
lion Americans died to free. Is in pres. nt
bond and future promise still a slave,
whipped by circumstance, trodden under
font by It on nnd ineradicable preludlce;
shut out rorever rrom the opportunities
which are the heritage nf liberty, and
holding in his black hand the hollow
pmeiiment of bis franchise as a freeman
looks through n slave's eyes nt the im
passable barriers which imprison him
forever within the pmgrcss anel .chle-.e-nient
of a dominant and all-coneuering
Separation of the rne-es is the ivn -the
only way. Is the expense appalling? Is
the cost prohibitive? ICngland again of

rest upon the misapprehension which )ou j
