Sectionalism and the Negro.
New Orleans, March 20, 1903.
To the E'lllor of The Times Democrat :
I b *»e heeri a sojourner in this cite for
the past three months, during which
time I have made closer observations In
regard t>i Southern sentiment, asr- fleet
e>l througii the newspapers, and the ut
terances of leading public men, than I
have ever attempted previously. Audi
sincerely regret tu say that the result is
that 1 have been compelled to change,
or at least modify, the opinion I have
hitherto entertained in regard to the
Southern people. I al'ude particularly
to the Southern attitude lowar : the ne
gio nn«l toward the Noithern people,«nd
io this respect I am forced to the con
clnsion that the South is, to «ay the
least, exceedingly unfortunate. Haying
voted the Democratic ticket straight and
regularly, beginning with my drat vote,
and for more *han forty year«, I do not
think that I can jnatly he accn«ed of
: Northern prejudice against the South,
I for as a matter of fact I have felt that at
times the Southern people were grossly
and grievously wtonged, and my sympa
thies wrie c. hol y with them i* their
struggle ng iiust *km I conceived to be
Northern oppression. But a temporary
residence here for three months and a
careful observation of the actual senti
ment existing here toward the North
compel« the belief that I lisve hereto
fore grratly misunderstood this senti
ment and the real position of tlu South
eru people. I find there exists here an
intense aud bitter feeling toward the
North, which constantly crops out in
varions ways, notwithstanding the ef
forts to disguise it on particular occa
sions by fiat ering demousti«Lions for
some noteworthy person or persons from
the North, I think I can safely say that
do such feeling exists to any extent in
the North against the South. Democrat*
certainly can not be accused of enter
taining any such feeling, and Republi
cans utterly disclaim having any.
The Indiauola postoffice affair ha*, in
my judgment, developed into one of the
most unfortunate occurrences for the
Snath, sud iuctdeiilHIy for the Demo
cratic party of the North, that r<>nld 1 os
sibly have happened. And in all that
haa been written about it and including
the speeches of the two United State
Senators from Mississippi concerning it.
I have utterly failed to see sny reason
able excuse whatever for thrusting each
an issue upon the public. And the only
possible expose offered for it is that the
postmistress was a negress. It was uni
versally conceded that the affsiis of the
office bad been conducted in the w»«t
acceptable nianuer to the people of In
diauola, yet not w'lh«tartdiiig this « p .b
* lie meeting was held, instigated, a* it
appears, chiefly by some one who want
ed the office, and the resignation of the
postmistress demanded. It seems that
she had served several years, and, as
stated, moat acceptably. In about a
year her term of office would expire, but
uo matter about that, ahe must get out
now. Can anything more injudicious
than the movement to compel her to qnit
the office be conceived ? Is it supposed
that any President, with any backbone
whatever, would submit to being bull
dozed in any auch manner? Senator
Tillman made a speech recently to a
large audience, composed mainly of col
lege students, iu Wisconsin, in which he
dwelt upon the Inlianola matter and sa
sailed the President's action therein,
but a vote at the close of the meeting
was almost unanimous in approval of
the President's coarse. And this would
he found to be the sentiment throughout
Having beenyrngsged as a newspaper
editor and publisher for something like
thirty-five years, I take this occasiou to
say that I regard the New Orleans Times
Deraocrat as a splendid newspaper, a
newspaper to he classed with the very
beat newspapers in the country, and
New Orleans and the South are particu
larly fortunate in its publication. I
should be unable to poiut lo any other
influence which in my judgment accom
plishes so mnch for the msterial pros*
périt v and well-being of the city and the
South as this paper, bnt with all the
good that remits from its efforts there
are olhei papers, aud possibly here, that
do more harm iu a single issne than can
be overcome by the continued heat ef
forts of the Tiines-Pemocrat and papers
of like character.
The negro question is one which I do
not arrogate to myself the wisdom to
solve in the most judicious manner, but
I am bonnd to recognize the established
fact that under the Constitution and
laws of the country the negro has been
made a citizen of the United States, and
hence is entitled to all the protection
guaranteed to all other citizens, and
whoever attempts to deprive him of this
protection or to deny him the rights and
privileges and immunities of citizeu
ship is doing violence to the laws of the
laud, aud is disregarding the solemn ob
ligation which rests upon us all for the
maintenance of the peace and welfare
and good ordrr of the community.

A HEALTH POLICY
The system is from natural
debilitated or ruu-down
both in the spring and fall. The
seasons' changes are always a tax
on the human organism. The
blood becomes impure in the
spring, and vitality lugs in the fall.
À little care, a little assistance,
and nature will do the rest, as it is
always trying to maintain health.
Frequently the weakest organ will
show the most disorder, and this
often leads to wrong treatment.
For the debilitated conditions
of spring or fall, or any other
time, for that matter, the right
thing to do is to build up the
whole system. It is not your stom
ach, or liver, or nerves alone that
cause the trouble; you are weak
ened all over and must have re
newed strength and vitality. These
you cannot get so
quickly or surely or
safely as by using
