THE RACE QUESTION. Just at the present time when the people of the State are en grossed with the consideration of a living issue: an issue which so closely affects their welfare and their destiny, an issue the magnitude of which many fail entirely to perceive, we want to present a few extracts from the address of John Temple Graves before the New York Chautauqua. As the embodi ment of Southern sentiment and Southern ideas, as one of the leaders of this section, as a man iff i who has given years of his life to fy the study of the race problem ifo and whose life and training and tit j residence has afforded abundant tt j opportunity therefor, he was tit j asked to discuss "The Mob" be ll fore an audience representing the wisdom, the learning, the in telligence of this country. He defended the mob and said as long as the gentle and refined women of the South were made the victims of lust and murder there was no remedy for it. The prevention of rape he discussed at length and said he could sug gest only two remedies, amputa tion and separation of the races, the latter impracticable under our civilization But it is not so much of the mob that we wish to present this morning. We want to call our readers' attention to a few ex tracts from this great address in the hope that after reflecting over them they will be impress ed with the great magnitude and vital importance of this question. It will be noted that the views of Vardaman, Senator Money and all the thinkers of the age on this question find endorsement in Graves utterances and as a student of ethnological and social conditions in the South he has no superior. In the course of his admirable paper he said: "I state here a proposition which is vital. It requires and admits no debate. The negro is an inferior race. Of all the na tions of the earth, the African has registered the smallest de velopment and recorded the few est achievements. It has made no history and developed no civil ization. What this people have done they have done only under their two centuries of contact with the white man, from whom they have learned very very little and after whom they have pat terued very much. The negro is the weakest and the Anglo-Saxon the strongest race on earth VV ith the all-conquering Saxon given a thousand years the start the recordless African is placed side by side with him, upon equa terms of law, and, in the un speakable and unexplainable folly of a statesmaship of emergency and compromise, these two races, ? 1 J t m . . m wiae as tne poles m merit and development, are expected to share upon equal terms the priv ileges and the vast responsibili ties oi tne greatest and freest government under the sun. It is difficult to conceive how any passion of partisanship or any ex pediency of statesmanship could have forecasted any peace or any profit from an experiment so in congruous and so hopeless of as similation. apart) under the same codes and customs, and have the impudence to be surprised when the results are incomplete. Primorily, therefore, when we begin to legislate for this inferior race for its virtues and for its crimes we must be wise enough to recognize the thirteen cen turies that separate it from us, and frankly bold enough to make different laws when necessary for the government of the lower race. This is bold, but it is wise. It may be revolutionary, but it is the common sense of the situa tion. And statesmanship in its last analysis is common sense. Practical statesmanship recogni zes no ghosts and is appalled by no traditions. It goes to the point and does the thing that is necessary without fear and with out apology. We are here to-day to discuss tranquil conditions. We are here to meet a serious emergency. We are not called to treat a spring fever or a summer cold. We are here to grapple with a cancer that is eating its way into the re public's life. These two opposite and inher ently antagonistic races cannot grow up side by side on equa terms ot law and possession in the same territory. There is not a line of history that justifies the hope or the faith that they may Every faint hope that tranquil ity breeds or philanthropists fos ter, oi politicians encourage has time and again been withered in a hundred recurring crises like this, and if people were not blind or stupid or asleep thev would realize the fact written in history ethnology and science that oppo site races are inherently and uni versally antagonistic, and cannot share and have never shared in peace and equality since the world began any country or any government created oy ixoa or fashioned by man. The politicians and the apathy behind them may postpone the solution for a while longer, but sooner or later the wisdom of the fathers and the purpose of the Almighty will prevail."

OSBOR3STE OPPOSITE RACES. Out of this proposition grows a corallary pertinent to the issue of the hour. We cannot govern these two opposite unequally de veloped races under the same customs or by the same laws We have been making the fatal mistake of applying twentieth century laws to a twentieth century race, and, in equal con- siceraiion, ine same laws to a race scarcely civilized. The negro belongs by development to a period not later than the sev enth century, and yet we are try ing here to solve his problems and to rule his passions by the benign laws of a period thirteen hundred years in advance of his civilization. England to-day is living under laws milder and less exacting than the statutes which governed her people two huudred years ago. America is living un der laws less rigorous and exact ing than those of the revolution. As civilization advances and as in telligence and refinement spread, men require less law and less re straint. This is history, as well as philosophy, and yet, in the face of both history and philoso phy, we are trying here to gov ern the seventh century and the twentieth century (1,300 years The announcement that Sena tor McLaurm would vote for Critz is not surprising. Mc Laurin's refusal to appoint Var daman a commissioned officer in the Sbpanish-American war is not forgotten over the State and it is not to be wondered at that men representing such different ideas of government should be opposed to each other. McLaurin is the embodiment of the machine and knows with such a weakling as Critz governor his control of the political destinies of the State will be complete. He believes in ma chine methods and during his administration built up the most powerful organization which ever dominated this State. Varda man represents the opposite idea. He abhors machine meth ods, believes that all power rests with the people and that they are the source of all authority. The Senator's announcement serves to emphasize what we have said from the first, that this is a bat tie of the politician against the people. We have lots in North Gulfport the addition to Gulfport, where more building is being done than in any other. This addition joins the site of the New Cotton Seed Oil Mill and Fertilizer plant, which will employ 300 hands, and on which work is progressing rapidly. It is the addition which lies in the industrial and manufacturing section of this Seaport, and the addition which is naturally located for the homes of the laboring people. Lots are now selling for $20.00 cash ; or for $25.00, payable $5.00 cash, and $2.00 per month per lot. Lose no time ! Send us $5.00 for each lot you wish to secure and we will pick out the best unsold lots and send you map showing location of same. Don't fail to let us hear from you before the price advances. Gulfport Land& Improvement Go. Leland J. Henderson, Secretary. vardaman had hundreds of overtures made to him just after the first primary offering sup port in exchange for patronage. One statement of his replied to all. He said that if a promise of the lowest office m the State to the highest citizen would secure his nomination he would not have it that way; that the ap pointments of his administration were not for sale, but would be made to serve the best interests of the State. Can the people af ford to vote against such a man for Governor? What effect McLaurin 's an nouncement will have over the State cannot be conjectured. It may cause a Vardaman andslide. Whenever the people get an idea that a man is being oppressed and persecuted their sympathies are with that man. Already in certain quarters the effect of of McLaurin 's announce ment in this respect is noted. The Clanon Ledger and the News of Jarkson have lined up with the rest of the Jackson cr6wd iu their effort to defeat Vardaman. It was to be ex pected. Hon. S. M. Smith, of Holmes county and Dr. J. M. Hoyle, of Tupelo, are candidates for the position of speaker of the next house and the fight has begun. The Negro Problem. To the Democratic Voters of Missis sippi: I desire to make my grateful acknowledgment to you for the emphatic endorsement which you gave me at the primary. I never doubted the result for a single moment during the canvass, be cause I respected you and im plicitly confided in your intelli gence, manhood and democra cy. I particularly value your endorsement because it will strengthen me in the senate, in the discussion and settlement o the race question, which is the greatest and most far-reaching that confronts the American peo pie; a national question upon the determination of which depends the permanence of free institu tions in this nation. The best minds in every section of the country are engaged in its con sideration, statesmen, divines, ed itors and political writers are dis cussing it with an earnestness that has been intensified by the position taken by President Roosevelt. Encouraged by your appoval, I shall renew my efforts, both by speech and pen, to bring the pub lic mind to a full realization of the magnitude of the fateful probfem in which. I am glad to assure you, I am laboring in ac cord with my democratic col leagues in the senate. The signal victory which you have given me places me under renewed obligations to you to serve you with all the energy and faculties I possess. I assure my friends, who have given me every honor that I ever asked for, that I appreciate the generous enthu siasm of their efforts in my be half, and that I have not spent a dollar to buy any newspaper or personal service, made any pledges or promises of place to anyone for assistance. My friends have all been volunteers not a single mercenary in the camp. Witn proronnd gratitude, I am your most obliged and obedient servant, H. D. Money. The society which is quietly colonizing a large number of negroes in the New England States is to be commended in its work. Any movement which will give the North a better under standing of the negro is to be welcomed and nothing will ad vance this knowledge like asso ciation with him. Short Items of Interest. Mr. L. J.
