Five Methods Proposed for
the Solution of the Race
Washington. Jan. 23.— The an
nouncement that Senator Ingalls. of
Kansas, would address the senate on
the race question drew a large crowd to
the capitol to-day. In preparation for
its coming, the number of doorkeepers
at the doors of the senate galleries had
been increased. Under ordinary con
ditions a gallery running more than a
quarter of the distance around the
chamber is reserved for ladies and their
escorts, but this morning one-half of
this gallery had been reserved for the
friends of senators. At 11:30. there
fore.when the dooisofthe galleries were
thrown open, the crowd in the corridors
was more thau sufficient to till the lim
ited space allowed the public, and be
fore noon the additional congregation
in the corridors had rendered passage
around the galleries extremely difficult.
The reserved galleries too. filled quickly,
and at 1:30. half an hour before tue hour
set for Mi. Ingalls to speak, almost
every seat had been taken. The diplo
matic gallery alone looked empty. In
the front row of the reserved gallery sat
Mrs. Ingalls and her daughter. Mr.
Ingalls did not appear in his seat dur
ing the morning hour. The senate
droned along through the routine of the
morning work. There was a constant
buzz of conversation in the galleries.
Senator Dawes and Senator Blodgett
were reading newspapers. Senator Vvol
cott examining a magazine. Members
from the house of representatives
walked about amonir the senators, chat
ting with them, or
in the gallery. At 1:49 Senator Ingalls
entered the chamber from the Republi
can cloak rooms. A silk handkerchief
bound arounu around his throat gave
evidence of the attack of influenza from
which he is still Buffering. On Mr. lu
galls' desk were piled four bound vol
umes of the Congressional Record. He
placed on them the portfolio containing
his notes and sat down. In a few min
utes he changed his seat to the one di
rectly behind, where he exchanged a
few words with Secretary Rusk and
Gen, N. P. Banks. Then he returned
to his own seat and opened a newspa
per. Before the time announced lor
the delivery of his speech be removed
from his neck the silk kerchief and ad
justed his cravat while he engaged Sen
ators Hale and Manuerson in conversa
tion. A few minutes before 2 o'clock
Mrs. Harrison and Mrs. Morton entered
the executive gallery. The wife of
the attorney general and her two
(laughters and E. W. Hnlford.
the president's private secretary*
were also in the private gallery.
At 2 o'clock exactly. Senator Ingalls
arose and moved that the senate pro
ceed to the consideration of the bill to
assist the emigration of people of color
from the Southern states. He asked
that it be read at length. A cry of
"Hush" went around the gallery as the
senator from Kansas arose and the vice
president rapped sharply for order.
Chief Clerk Johnson read the bill slowly
and distinctly. As the reading pro
ceeded the crowd on the Boor increased
so rapidly that all the available chairs
in the cloak rooms were brought out.
"Mr. President, the race to which we
belong is the. most arrogant and preten
tious, the most exclusive and Indom
itable in history," were Mr. Ingalls'
opening words. Individualism, liberty,
fraternity and equality, ho said, had
been that race's contributions to the
state. Every other race had been its
enemy or its victim. At every step of
its progress from barbarism to*enlight
enment the Caucasian race had refused
to assimilate with the Mongolian and
tiik ablbSt soothsayer
could not have foretold the wonderful
development of the first century of
American independence. The frontier
had been abolished, the climate con
quered and the deserts subdued. From
the latent resources of the American
constitution had been evoked great and
unexpected powers. In it every creed
had found a sanctuary, every wrong a
redress. Upon r.he threshold of our
second century the people of the United
States were confronted by the most por
tentous problem ever placed before a
free people for solution. It involved in
the belief of many (but not in his) the
permanency of our form of government.
It must be considered frankly and
freely, without subterfuge and without
reserve. Mr. Lngalls paid a glowing
tribute to the late Henry \Y. (.Irady,
from whose oration delivered in Boston
in December last he quoted.
He sent to the clerk's desk a
liberal extract from Mr. Grady'a
speech to be read. At the conclusion
of the refilling he continued his re
marks. He would discuss the anthnie
thic of the question. He said: In
I8*;o there were in the United States
4,440.000; in 1870, 4,450,(K)0; ill ISSO.
(),580.t)00 negroes. He wished to say in
passing that it was his belief that the
increase shown from 1870 to 1880 was a
deliberate, premeditated fraud upon the
census, committed for the purpose of
obtaining an increased representation.
To complicate the problem, the uearo
was gregarious. The line of cleavage
between the white man and the black
was distinct and clear. There was
neither amalgamation, absorption or as
similation between the races. Fred
Douglass, the most illustrious living
representative of his race (greater, he
thought by his Caucasian reinforce
ment than by his African blood), had
said to him that when prejudice disap
peated the
He did not believe it. Such a solu
tion of the difficulty he thouirht would
be impossible; if possible, most deplor
able. History showed that where the
white and black had come together dur
ing the period of slavery it had been by
compulsion. The children born had
claimed white fathers and black
mothers; never black lathers and white
mothers. There was no poisoning so
fatal as the adulteration of race. The
leaders of the South had come to the
conclusion that the present state of
affairs could not exist. They asked that
the matter be discussed amicably. The
senator from y outh Carolina, (Mr. But
ler) deprecated animadversion. Thtv
would not hear it from him. The most
bitter criticism in the South was
th« truth, liv did uot claim a superi
ority of virtue for the North. His an
cestors had owned slaves, ile remem
bered with what interest <s a boy he
had read that schoolbook poem begin
'•Chained In the market place he stood,
A man of giaut fnime."
The conscience of New England had
not been aroused to a sense of the
enormity of ihe slave system until it
had become unprofitable. [Laughter.]
Besides, a lanre part of the people of
the United States had not contemplated
the freeing of the negro in the war for
the Union. When the negro was freed
he had been given the franchise— not
for the purpose of perpetuating the Re
publican party. That calumny had
grown old enough to be superannuated
and placed on the retired list. If the
rieuro was not here, Mr. Insrulls said, he
thought the people of the United States
to-day would hesitate to invite him here.
With the experience of two centuries of
slavery and twenty-five years of ostensi
ble freedom,he believed that they would
prefer to have remained in asso
ciation with their brethren on
the dark continent. But the neur >
was here. They were of ancient
lineage— in fact, eenuine F. F. V.'s.
[Laughter.] By their sobriety ami stead
iness they had justified the judgment
oi those who had believed them better
than the brute race. But to what did
their freedom amount 9 Their citizen
ship was such only in name. The black
vote of the South" was practically sup
pressed. Senators, editors and the trad
ers of the South had announced their in
tention of breaking the control of the
negro. Henry \V. (irady had said:
"When will the neuro east a free i>al
lot?" On that point Mr. Installs said he
had other testimony to off r. and he
would call only Southern men and Dem
ocrats as witnesses. Mr. Lngalls read
an extract from the Memphis Avalanche,
"commenting on what was called the
election in Mississippi last fall." [Laugh
ter.] The Avalanche had state.) that
"Chalmers coul I not get the office of
governor, however large his majority
intent be." ihe senator said he would
not go into archaeological research for
This extract was printed in October,
last. On the 16th rf time month the
Avalan -he had said deliberately that
the South did not propose to be gov
erned by the negro under any condi
tions. On account of this condition of
affairs. Gen. Chalmers had withdrawn
from the race lor governor. Mr. Ingalls
quoted at length from Gen. Chalmers'
address to the Republican voters of
Mississippi. He considered that ad
dress, he said, one of the most tra.'ie
utterances that had ever occurred in
political history. Seventeen dsvs ago
there had been another election In Mis
sissippi with which the country was
somewhat familiar. He sent to the
clerk's desk to be read an extract from
the Jackson Clarion, of .lan. 2. In this
extract was the constant reiteration
of the announcement that the "Reg
ulars," the "Bulldozer*, ' eic, would be
on hand to see that there was a "fair
election." At the end of the enumera
tion, Mr. lniralls remarked, sen'en
ticiusly, "They were all there. Mr.
President." [Laughter.] Mr. lugalls
read an extract from correspondence
about the election, telling thai it hal
been controlled by Winchester rifles
ami that no negro had been allowed
within 100 yards of the voting place.
Mr. Ingalls also read a letter from a
federal officer, statinir two suns of Sen
ator George had been in the crowd of
regulators, armed with Winchester?, and
wearing badges bended "White Su
pr inacy." Was it any wonder, he said,
lhat Democrats themselves hud become
alarmed at tuis condition of affairs?
Mr. Ingalls read an extrrct from an in
terview with Hon. Frank Burkett. a
Democrat who said that there were
in Mississippi, "Equally honest"— "A
valuable admission." said the senator.
[Laughter.] The state of Mississippi,
said Mr. Burkett, stood to-day between
Winchester lilies and federal Interfer
ence. The South. Bflid Mr. Ingalls, ev
idently intended to deprive the negroes
of their vote and of tueir independence;
and practically Ihe North had acqui
esced in this. Forced attempts had
been made to pass c vil rights' laws and
federal election laws. Out they had
failed. The negro bad been abandoned
by the North. But he wished to warn
the people of the South that the North,
the West, the East would not allow their
commerce, their manufactures and
their social condition to be modified by
executive and co igresstonal majorities
obtained by the suppression of the col
ored vote or of any other vote.
No one could tell how long
this patient endurance of the Nor n
would continue: but that the crisis
would come, in peace or in blootT. was
the inexorable decree of faie. It' this
condition of affairs continued nothing
could avert armed collision Between the
races in the South. Ultimately the. col
ored nice would be strong enough to re
sist violence and inte ligent enough to
resist fraud. The South wax standing
on a volcano. It. was silting on me

ble John Browns and Nat Turners. Al
ready the use of the torch and the dag
ger was advised. He deplored it; but
as Go.l was his judge no other race in
the history of the world had submitted
to the wrongs heaped upon th • negro in
the last twenty-five years without
Mr. lugalls sent to the clerk's desk to
be read newspaper extracts to show that
the "Theory of Kxt ruination" was
already being put into practice. In one
of these it was stated that 155 negroes
were lynched in Mississippi last year.
The negro, the senator s.iid, was no
coward, lie had been brought here a
prisoner of war. Th • Athen ans had
erected a statue to J£sop, who was born
a slave. The American nation should
also place the slave "Upon an eternal
pedestal." His conduct had been most
admirable. Despotism made nihilists:
tyranny communists; injustice was the
greatest manufacturer of dynamite.
The murderer wounded himself when
he stabbed his victim. The South should
remember that there was nothing so un
profirabie as injustice, and that God was
a relentless creditor. The South was in
greater danger than the enfranchised
slave. It had loaded itself with
heavier manacles than those with
which it burdened the negro. There
was no affection between the North and
the South, ihe South had not forgiven
the North for its supremacy and super
iority. If the South could hold the
purse and the sword it was patriotic.
The South had not accepted the amend
ments of the constitution in trood faith.
They had theit own heroes and anniver
saries. They exalted their leaders
above the leaders of the Union cause.
Until these conditions were changed,
co-operation in solving the Southern
Sroblem could not t>e expected from the
forth. The South must tread the wine

reverence of the Southern people for
Jefferson Davis. He honored them for

ideas could never be annihilated. No
man was ever converted by being over

might follow fawning." He remained

Chicago, Jan. "23.— a husband and
wife were slain tins afternoon while at
tending the funeral of their child. The
driver of the couple's conveyance was
also fatally injured, a-* we.il as a neigh
bor, who was in tne carriage. A pas
senger train on the Chicago & North
western railway did tiie quadruple kill
ing. Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Payne
were the unfortun .te parents. Siiiion
Anderson is th • name of tiie hackmaii.
and .mis. IJeiM'o .al that of the friend.
The dead infant was a little nve
inonths old boy. Just as the carnage
containing the mourning father and
mother had reached the cemet -ry gate
ai Rose Hill was the moment when
death came to them. At this point the
road crosses the railway tracks.
The hearse reached the grave
yard entrance without mishap, and was
being followed by the Paynes' carriage.
No flagman is stationed at the crossing
by the. railroad company, aiM the driver
of tht carriage did not see the inbound
Chicago express until it was almost
upon him. The engine struck tha center
of the carriage and thu occupants were
dashed to death in an instant. Their
bodies were thrown about thirty feet.
Both husband an.l wife were mutilated
beyond recognition. The carriage was
utterly demolished. Anderson, the
driver, was picked up insensible. He
has several ribs broken and his skull
is badly fractured. Mrs. KeprogalV
injuries were equally severe, and
each died in a very short time.
The nine-year-old daughter -if Mr. and
Mrs. l'ayne was in the carriage too. but
strangely enough escaped with slight
Si-alp wounds. Fifteen hacks contain
ing additional mourners were close in
the Tear of the Payne vehicle. They
were unharmed. The drivers and the
engineer are each censured for lack of
caution, but the absence of a flagman
seems to have been the main cause of
the horror. A score, or more of funerals
enter the cemetery daily, and trains
pass and repass at very short Intervals.
Whether this is the case, the view of
both engineers and carriage drivers is
shut off almost if not wholly by the Rose
Hill railway station and a group of

injured. They cannot live more than a
few hours. Both were deaf and could
not hear the train. The tracks are bid

Piekue. S. D., Jan. 23.— Chief Engi
neer J. E. Blunt. Supt. Hollenlmck
and other officials of the Chicago &
Northwestern railroad have been hero
for two days. They have been visiting
Fort Pierre every day inspecting the
mile square which they claim, running
lines and such work. From what can
Ik*. learned it appears that the North
western road is now making: full pre
parations to occupy this, and in the
splint: bridge the river and extend its
line through to the Black Hills. What
disposition the government will make
of the claims of hundreds of settlers
and speculators who now occupy the
mile square remains to be seen. Al
though an agent of the interior depart
ment and the United Slates marshal
have, been secretly inspecting the land
and gathering notes. Trouble is now
brewing between the settlers and In
dians there. The latter have begun to
cut timber along tin' Bad and Missouri
rivers, and are hauling it üboii the land
they claim on the square and adjoining
tracts under the terms of the Sioux bill.
The settlers consider this wholesale
robbery of timber lands and an injustice,
and are talking of stopping it by force
if necessary. A fracas was averted
yesterday by the prompt summoning of
troops when a small band of men at
tempted to prevent the Indians from
rutting and hauling wood along the
Bad river, near Fort Pierre.

Schedule Problem.
Milwaukee, Jan. 23.— Either St.
Paul, Minneapolis or Portage will get
the Mitchell curling modal, and the in
teresting struggle will be concluded to
morrow, as will also the Northwestern
curling bonspiel. The contest Is nar
rowed down between the rinks
of Wells of Portage, McCullougn
of St. Paul, and Brooks of Minneap
olis. The most interesting games of the
bonspiel thus far were played this
afternoon. McCulloclfs St. Paul rink
was pitted against Hastings' Minneap
olis rink, the former running up a scora
of 16 to 14. Brooks, of Minneapolis, de
feated John Johnson, of Milwaukee, by
a score of 20 to 10. Brooks', McCulloch's
and Wells' rinks are therefore the ones
remaining in the light. McCulloch drew
the "By" and will merely have to play
the winner of the Wells-Brooks c#nt^st.
Therefore, Wells, who drew the "By"
yesterday, must defeat both Brootca
and McCulloch to win. Notwithstand
ing these odds, Wells is thought to be a
sure winner.

Many Applications for Admission
to the International Association.
Buffalo, Jan. 23. — The direetorsof
the international Base Ball association
n^et at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon to
consider ways and means for filling the
vacancies in the association caused by
the secession of Rochester and Toledo
to the American association. The clubs
represented were Detroit. Hamilton,
London, Toronto and Buffalo. Syra
cuse, which is on the verge
of going into the American associ
ation, did not send a representative.
A. T. Brown was here to present the
claims of Bay City and Saginaw, Mich.,
for membership. Troy, Albany, Mon
treal. Elmira. Erie, Utica, Sprintrfield,
Mass., and other cities are also desirous
of joining the association. The session
lasted alKiuteight hours. Messrs. Mills,
of Detroit: Uobbs, of London; and
Dixon. of Hamilton, were appointed a
committee with full power to till va
cancies. They will visit the different
cities and decide which one shall
be admitted. It was practically
aureed to admit Bay City and Sagmaw
as one club and an oftk-ial notification
will be promulgated in a day or two.
Montreal presents strong inducements
for admission, and if the committee
finds that the representations made are
correct, Montreal will undoubtedly be
admitted. Troy and Albany, it is gen
erally understood, will be given another
chance to show whether they can
keep pace with the International
association. It was decided to compel
each club to deposit the SI,OOU guar
antee by Feb. It) instead of March 1.
This was dor.c chiefly to force Bulfalo
to show down her hand. Buffalo will
hardly deposit, and therefore will for
feit its international franchise. The
franchise has been retained merely to
protect the club's right to last season's
players, who are for sale. Tne schedule
committee will meet in Toronto
March 18.
