1 ' int II gencer editorial was ae
'One plank in the
i state platform probably brough'
more votes to Mr. Bennett than
e'ther h's own personal..ty or tlu
strenuous campaign made by his
supporters, that which was goner
a y known as the *Jim Crow’’ plank
"During the campaign there was
a tendency to confuse the Jim
Crow’ plank with the disfranchise
ment proposition so loudly ad
vanced by such rad ca's as George
Byrne There W>, of course, a wide
difference between the two. The
pi >po8al tlint transportation com
panies shall furnish separate cart
tor the races is quite as reasonable
as separate schools, separate church
es, and separate secret organiza
tl >ns. To take away from the negro
tho right of ballot guaranteed him
by the national constitution, would
| be a radical blow against his rights
as a man. To require tne negro to
ride in a railroad train in a partlc
u.ar car re-served for his use, do
n os him no right and inflicts no
d crimination Facts must be
* d as they are. In the southern
counties of this state, and In a con
stantly increasing degree in the
northern counties, conditions have
ar sen whch often render it un
P < asant, if not absolutely unsafe,
for a white woman una'tendej to
travel on a railroad train. Those
conditions can be best remedied by
an enactment requiring separate
passenger coaches for tho races,
| and ii: necessary, for the sexes.
The Intelligencer believes that
he Republican party should take up
he quest on of Its own accord and
not wait for a further mandate from
»1> > people. a large majority of
the more thoughtful colored men
who have traveled in the southern
o>ntiea will favor Vt. Jt Is a slm
P'e. ccmmonsense proposition and
■»l»c ild become a law."
