C Again the Fifteenth Amend-`l ' 'l ment. K, A short time ago we called, h attention to the views ot that t( widely-read Northern journal, t Harper's Weekly, on the Fif- a teenth Amendment to the Federal Constitution and the tl chances of its repeal. After ft a careful study of the subject a IHarper's Weekly reached the d conclusion that the drift of d public opinion was in thel d(ire:tioin of abrogation, and a! also the repeal of that section I ()f the F')ulrtelenth Amend- t1 miient \hith pruovid(le that States that !denly the rig ht of b si|ffrage to uitale il;: labital.t - Over t"Wv'litV-ilt yar of age.-. or to alny way alhri tIe thciri right to vote.

T'he pci tiiv taken by Hariper's W\Vtily in favor of repeal has vokedtl an, outlburst from the lIncdepend- ti t'ut, which denouunces the li ljproposition as "foolish alnd wicked talk." and onnmient-" ing on this talk the Indepen (blt says: a I It delpeinds onl the doctrine, that this is exclusively a vwhite mian' counltry, when t evt'ry mall knows it is 11no t Imore a white ian's country o than it is an Anglo-Saxon's r country. Everybodly knows t that millions of people, not white, nor only partly white, live in this country and have lived here as many genera tions as most of the rest of a us. This is their country just as much as it is any other men's country. anl those who persist in vociferously andl continiuolusly denying it art c simply burying themselves dleeper uwler falsIehoods." The Baltimore Sun calls the attention of the Idcepen deit to the fact that when i Jefferson wrote in the Declar ation of Independence that 1 all men are born free and I equal, negro slavery existed -in the American colonies, hence, it is safe to assume that these words were intend ed to apply to white men on ly, because if they were in tended to apply to the slaves also the declaration was mere ly a hallow mockery in viewI of the fact that slavery was protected by the laws exist Cing for a century after the promulgation of the I)Declara -tion of Independence. The t Sun, with much truth, ay. 1- serts that from the earliest days down to the present " time the policy of the nation towards the Indian has been 8 basedl on the assemption that r the red man has no right that Sthe whie it man is bound to I respect. '1' This is a fact that cannot be (lisputeol. We have (le f- fendled our ac:tioii ill shutting f out the 'hinese oil tihe igroulnd that thlis is a white it mania' counitry. Thie descend t anits of the New England Puritans, pious missioilaries Stllthey were, drove the Queeln te of Hawaii from lcr throlle l- 'be ause they held that a i, Wilite 1man' Rgove'rlllll;lit was dt essential to the welfare of i-'the islald. In thi- c)nnec (I tion the Baltimore Sun says: ''l'Tihey dlri\i-vedc thle natives, -. who olitlilillluber d them 10 to it 1. of alniost aully Voic iii tlihe goverlilut-lit. aindl ill due sea " soil turnrid Hawaii over to - tilhe Ulnitcd States as a teri y toiv.

So far a - the praetice of this nati(on is co):,cernled the weight of evi d.rlc,'. regardless of abstrat theories. and 'nlobl conici'l tions" of equality, indicate that, except during the period immediately following the Civil War and up to the time that the Southern States re covered control of their gov eriiinents, this has been re gardedl as a 'white man'IIs country.' Otherwise we we would have thrown open our ports to the Asiatics and have treated the Indian as a man and a brother." The proposition to repeal the Fifteenth rmendment is far from I the foolish and wicked talk the Indepen dent claims it to be. The drift of public opinion toward the repeal of the Fifteenth amendment, which HIarper's Weekly has noted, is due to the fact that the North is A b'ginning to realize that it .as a stupedous blunder, if ,not a crime, and that it is not wrong for the Southern whlite' people to preserve their " ivi\-iization when it is men- I aencd by a semi barbarous ra,:e. The Independent may wll be within the mark 'when" it asserts that the amutendment will never be ret. pealed, but will remain a part of the Federal Constitu tion as long.as the Republic lives, but the Independent t s-hould know that the Ameri- º can pe'ople have a practical way of solving their problems. iand should the time come jwhen they have good reason to believe that the welfare of their country depends upon or would be promoted by the repeal of the amendment, they will not hesitate to re peal it In .the present frame ! of the public mind it would be impossible to adopt such. f an amendment, and the truth is that at the time of its I adoption it was condemned by the sober sense of the country, and many prominent men who then supported it now frankly admit that it y I should never have found a - place in the Constitution. lThe Amendment may not be Srepealed for many years, but t the fact can not be question I ed that public sentiment I against it is constantly grow i, ing in the North.-State~,.
