He belonged to liis master ami the chicken belonged to his master, so when the chicken did disappear from the rpost ;at night it reappeared in the form of muscle the next morning at the plow handles. And then, too, otherwise morally die Negro is not so bad. The old negro was brought here a rode, nude, uncultured j savage; ‘lienew negro is lighter in color, stronger in intellect and superior in cul I ture. The old negro was a despicable character, debased and demoralized by 300 ! years of slavery; taught that the laws of morality had no place in the social creed j of slaves; horn every one of them bastards; ! there is now not as great a percentage of j illegitimate births among the negro popu lation of the Black licit of Alabama, as ; there is in the Kingdom of Bavaria. I The alarmists now look to another source for material to intimidate the thoughtful. They predict race extinction Mr. Brice in his volumes, the “American Commonwealth/’says: “The negro cen ter of population is shifting southward and the African is leaving the colder region and higher drier lands for a region more nearly resembling the old world.” A similar statement has also been made by Mr. Gapet of the U. S. Geological Sur vey, Messrs. Porter and Walker respec tively of the tenth and eleventh censuses. For a time these assertions, coming from such a high authority, were left un questioned, hut leeeut investigation has shown these statements to be entirely,. fal”e. Prof. Brown in his pamphlet en titled, “Northward movement of the Negro,-’ has shown contrary to the state ments of the above critics, that in the south naturally of course, tlie negro has increased, in the border states, though 75,o00 emigrated from that section from 1880 to 181)0; there was still an increusi-jof 20 per cent in 1890 over the number con tained therein in 1880, and besides in the ficc states there was a feeble increase of 6,000, while Brittanica after manipulat ing a number of tables concludes that the negro has begun to move westward at the rate of 40,000 annually.” The negro is left now, from a point of geographical dis tribution only to be taken up from the physical side. Mr. Hoffman, statistical! for the American Economic Association, in a book of his entitled, “Pace traits and tendencies of the American negro,” abook wherein he has juggled with tacts and figures simply worse than would be eXr peeled from a school hoy, declares (p. p‘. 311-312.) “Nothing is more clearly .-hown from this investigation than that the southern black mau at the time of his emancipation was healthy in body and cheerfpl in mind, lie neither suffered in ordinately from disease nor from impaired bodily/vigor. His industrial capacities , as a laborer were not of a low order, nor was the condition of servitude such as to produce morbid conditions favorable to mental disease, suicide or intemperance, Wliat are the conditions 30 years after? The pages of this work give but one answer—an answer which is a most severe condemnation of modern attempts of su perior races to lift inferior races to their osvn elevated position; an answer so full of meaning that it would seem criminal in diilerence on the part of a civilized people to ignore it. In the plain language of the facts brought together, the colored race is shown to be on the downward grade, tending toward a condition in which matters w ill be worse than they are now, when disease will be more destructive, vital resistance still lower, when the num ber of births will fall below the deaths and gradual extinction of the race take place.” Hear him again in the last sentence of his book (p 829.) ‘“Unless a change takes pkrce, a change that will strike at the fundamental errors that underlie the con duct of the higher races toward the lower, gradual extinction is only a question of time.” Mr. Huffman should have a good mem ory. He states that “gradual extinction is only a question of time,” but yet he does not deny from 1880 to 1890 the Negros increased by 13.5 per cent. This is not so bad. The increase of the Ameri can white is only 11.0, of England 14. The increase of Negro is greater than that of Germany which is only 12.2, greater by far than France which is only 1.5. It will take the population or Great Britain 81 years to double. Switzerland 135 years, that of Fganee 445.5. The negro popula tion has doubled within 30 years and from all that we can judge his productive capacity is just as great uow as ever be fore. Nor indeed does Mr. Hoffman look forward for an immediate decrease, lie, in closing bis work, stating that gradual extinction is only a question of time, for ce Is that in the first part of his book lie anticipated that by 1900 the colored in habitants will number nearly 8,500,000 or nearly 1,500,000 more than iul890.. Educationally. Vice President Calhoun once remarked ‘ Pin told that it was impossible to teach Greek to that race of men whose sknlls were thick and w hose heels were long aud that furthermore he would not believe the negro was a man uutil lie could learu Greek. Perhaps Mr Calhoun, if he were living, would he somewhat surprised to learu that Mr. Scarborough of Macon, Ga. is the author of a Greek text book It might also surprise him to learn that It. U. Wright has for several j’ears success fully tilled the presidency of that states’ University; that Mr. Blyden is quoted as being master of 20 languages and an author of several text book; that W. E Dubois wou an oratorical prize and also a $300 scholarship at Harvard; that when ionly two negroes were in Harvard, on class day, one took first prize, the other took second: that there are many negroes today who can demonstrate problems ou the parabola, the hyperbola and the ellipse.
