(Or g.1. (titjn* rh,'la La I tI I o'e by *~41reew~, rn..-. of tIrtl week The President's Mad Course. Mr. T'heodore wlosevelt. by accident P'reident of the United States, seems to be pufferipg from a well develop. d aease of liegroluani. The mrnlady showed it first sympi toms at the time of the Bookerl Washiiurtou irncident. and has been grtwing on him ever! since, till it may be said to; have now reached the acute; stage. TIhe disease appears to have attacked the President in its most malign fortm, that of ra cial social equality. Its latest outbreak took place at a re ception tendered the Judicia ry and Congress at the White House last Friday week, at which were present by special Invitation. five negroes, name ly, Judson W Lyons. regis trar of the treasury, and wife, John C. DInry, recorder of deeds for the District of Co lumbia, and wife, and a fe. male relative of the latter. The Washington correspon dent of the Times-Democrat ppeaking of the incident, Pays; '"The attendance of these pegre at last night's func tion was, therefore, not "ofm cial" but "personaL" and was nbQe to indicate that the P would hereafter re. poeie at the White tse na rOs poRen terms of absolute social equality. The negroes, from the stan dard of the negro, were accep- 1 tably attired. One of the women present, was as dark Ra ebony, presented a gene. pous display of neck and I phoulders. The effect of this sombre figure 4monq a lnxn rious garden of pink and white womanhood was exceed. ingly novel. t Several of the southern a gurestat, the moment they rea lized the situation, went out I of doors, exclaiming: "Oh, horrores!" The very air of the ' Executive mansion was warm and heavy with the incense ' of the Rooseveltian devotion r to "humanity, regardless of i race." A "'strange invisible i perfgqme" arrested and pruzzled w4ytrers passing on the avenue. Ethnologically speak ing, the reception was the i most memorable of the eea po." r At the same time that the l announcement of this insult gid outrge to Southern sen tinmept cane by wire from Wahisgtop , another dispatch a frwx there to the Picayone a inforeed the publc: 'An afternoon paper here a :,i:,t4 the statement that P Silliamp H. Lewis, the negro ,',u .ntly appointed Assistant I'i ted States District Attor- , iy. at Boston by the Presi-I li, .t. has been invited to ,'',.i to Washington with his v:'i f. and visit the President." a 'ITiese incidents, precededj ,:- !',e Sooker Washingtonli in'i'ltnt, thle appointment of ('ii, as collector of customs t ,t ('larlesto, S: C., his cele- P !,ra?.t,. letter on the subject ,,i:! -intuient of negroes to, ,fli,, ..nd the ldiadaola af- a f;in -low nuaistakably that!d I !,, I': .ident is gone daft on ro qqeatio.n, and now :. out forracial social I " developed a won-i i,"k e , fe,r qegro so J'," '. . I at last Fri4a3y's re c-'L(ti,:, this r.icd of. societyll was in a measure forced upon the white guests who put in * an appearance at that social functioq. As an individual Mr. Rote lf velt is entitled to choose his own associates and make ` those he likes his social ' equals, and while we condemn .- his tste, we have no right to; L. interfere with his right of jselection. But as President. as the Shead of this great nation. he owes a c*rtaiu regard and ree , pect to the views and senti * mewnts, nay, even to the pre " judices. if you will, of the! vast majority of the people, who are undoubtedly against h - racial social equality, and l condemn the President's lat-I est blunder, not to say, crime. To fly in the face of that sen. timent, that prejudice, by the I practice of racial social equal ity, is to stir up sleeping pas sions and antagonisms which I bid fair to bring on race con- r flicts which are always deplo rable, and often disastrous. r This result Mr. Roosevelt may not intend but it will be the logical outcome of the fa tal course which he has in Ijaugurated. Already his un fortunate and ill-advised acts are bearing bitter fruits; once more the "bloody shirt" has been raised and waived in the United States Senate, and at a recent reunion of the Afro :-American Association, an archistic utterances were h heard, threatening the South e" with fire and sword. Should the President per sist in his mad course he will only succeed in instigating more trouble and strife, ;ur moil and conflict, between the races, than either he or any other man or set of men will be able to allay and sub. due in a generation or more. a The President's rash conduct H reminds one of the foclhardi. T news of a child playing with a ! ligbted match near a powder: magazine. The' powder is, liable to ignite at any men. ment, and when it does, the " Lord only knows what will mT be the disastrous results of the explosion. The President is posing as the special friend of the ne gro. If he is a true, discreet friend, he will let the negro alone, to work out his desti. a ny in peace and amity with the Southern whites, his trn-m est and best friends. To disturb the peaceful re lations existing between the races and to implant in the breast of the black man the oe wild dream and desire for , racial social equality is noth Ing short of a crime against P humanity and the general Pc good of the country. If the President cannot see , in that light, it is because his reasoning faculties have been paralyzed by the violence of " the attack of negromania which holds him in its fatal To grasp, or else he i dominated by the malign influence and adviceof some Machiavelli, actuated by hatred of the South or by a desire to bring Co about the President's own political ruin. Thus the Farmereville Ga- M1 zette to the poor fellow whose all is mortgaged: "The poor fellow who has o all his property mortgaged ' and sees no way to pay him- .t self out, can take consolation in the recent statistics of no Carroll )D. Wright. He de- * clares that "95 per cent of the mortgages indicated pro-I verity rather than the re. verse." He shows that mort gages were usually raised to secure money for business I operations, to educate chil- Pe, dren, or to make improve .ents in thle property itself. The other 5 per cent of mort- a -ages represent the "dead broke" class." o - To For Sale. To • ---i One lot situated on ,Jackson street. Bor .4irale Ir:.ti,o to build residenc "e. 150. Ti,.aas A.
