Commission on the
(Jackson Cor. Commercial Appeal.)
Jackson, Miss., Feb. 20, ’07.—
Gov. Vardanian has received a
great many inquiries recently as
to whether or not he would ap
point three members from Mis
sissippi on a commission to be
appointed by the governors of
the Southern States for the pur
pose of studying the race ques
tion in the South, as suggested
b-y the Rev. Dr. John E. White,
of Atlanta, Ga. Answering these
inquiries, the governor said:
“I have not thought much
about the matter of appointing
mombers of that commission for
Mississippi. Such a commission,
if composed of the right sort of
men, could do no harm, and
and probably might do some
good. Intelligent thought and
discussion is always helpful. But
the race question cannot be set
tled by a commission: and what
ever determination or conclusion
such a commission might reach,
the issue will still exist. Its ex
istence is not dependent upon
what any number of individuals
may think of it or say about it.
Its origin is not in the brains of
statesmen, politicians, or polit
ical economists or candidates for
office, but rather, it grows out
of donditions, the unfortunate
result of racial peculiarities and
governmental mistakes. And
you might as well undertake to
control or direct the blowing of
the winds or the ebbing or flow
ing of the tides, which are 'the
results of natural laws, as to un
dertake to suppress or prevent
the discussion of the race ques
tion in the South. It is with us,
the problem is here, and will re
main here until the causes which
produced it shall be removed,
It belongs to the whole people
and the whole people must settle
it. And, ultimately, the people
will settle it.
“As far as I am concerned, I
prefer to trust the feeliftgs of
the whole people than the con
clusions of a commission com
posed of specialists appointed by
the governors or anyone else.
The mass of the people may
think slowly, but they think ac
curately and their conclusions
are usually correct. The organ
izations of ‘press clubs’ for the
discouragement of the discussion
of the question, or failure of gov
ernors to appoint this commis
sion for the same purpose, will
have just about as much effect
in keeping the people from talk
ing about it and discussing it as
telling a hungry man that he is
not hungry would satisfy the
cravings of his stomach'
“They may cry harmony, but
there is no harmony. They may
say there is no problem, but still
the yroblem is here. They may
say there is no race question,but
the race question is with us. The
Christian Science treatment will
not suit this case at all. Differ
ences of opinion as to remedy
may be expected, but there can
be no difference of opinion as to
the existing, living, distressing
facts in the case. And it is pas
sing strange to me that wise and
conservative men in other mat
ters should entertain such pecu
liar views on this particular ques
tion af are entertained by some.
If I should not appoint commis
sioners for Mississippi I want it
distinctly understood that it will
not be because I do not want the

Webster was. when a schoolboy,
one day called before the teacher
for some infraction of the rules.
Told to hold out his right hand
for “feruling," the lad reluct
antly put forth a decidedly grimy
paw. “Daniel," said the dis
gusted pedagogue, “if you will
find in this schoolroom another
hand as filthy as that, I will let
you off this time.” Instantly
from behind the lad’s back came
his left hand. “Here it is, sir,"
was the ready response of the
future orator. —Ex.

clearly demonstrates the fact
that the professed interest of the
