At a mass meeting at. one of the negro churches in Washington . one niallL last, week- when luouml wf - - 1 I speakers were present, ami among them Lincoln Johnson of Atlanta, Ga., one Llayes, a negro lawyer of Richmond, Va., made one ol the most highly incendiary 1 harangues that wo have read in j many a day. Incidentally he , quoted the Atlanta Constitution ' as "having threatened the negroes with Kuklux it the growth of ' * i Federal appointments in the; south continues." lie then I * I 8HH1 : ' 1 make the prediction thati when the southern people start ' to Kukluxing this time they will not have as the ot jccts of tlieir | oppression (lie same timid people they Kukluxed in the tiO's." In j the course of his speech Hays is rp nrvrtaH 1a , 1 ^ ~ 1.? ? J 4 1 1 .. .. ii <a ? c uci;iitrcu II1HT - the negro has now reached the > limit ol his endurance, and he ^ advocated the sword and torch as a means for the negro to main tain his manhood, liis remarks , were received with great enthusiasm. lie reterred to the fact . that during the years which have elapsed since the war sectional \ feeling between the north and , south have died out to such an extent that Virginia now propo ses to place a monument to Lee 9 in Statuary Hall, in the National Capital, but that all this period * has not been sufficient for the 3 negro to advance one inch beyond } the place he held when liberated from slavery. "There is nothing j in Virginia for the negro," he said, "but degredation, unless the negroes make a firm stand, contend lor their rights, and, if necessary, die for them. 1 am not l..Vt M I it * - - - * I .in niiarcmsi," lie aauea, k,and I don't mean to go out and kill * anybody, but to let somebody else kill you." This veiled sally provoked loud applause and laughter. ' You opened this meeting to night by singing kMy Country I 'Tis of Thee,' but I wonder how i negroes can sing that song. For * myself 1 am a man without a k country. The time has come when the negro must tight ; not theoretically, not intellectually, but fight with his hands. The disfranchisement of the children of Israel iu Egypt has been followed letter by letter by the dis( franchisement in the South. 5 Negroes are leaving the State of Vi riri nia Kanonuo /?!' ? ? * . B""" uvvuuoo \J 1 IUO uomuioui ? they are receiving. What we # M ' want to do is to start something and keep it up until the white f people stop something. We don't intend to be oppressed any } longer ; we don't intend to be crushed. I am afraid we are anarchistic, that wo are Anarchists, [ and I give the warning that if ; this oppression in the South continues the negro must resort to the sword and the torch, and that the Southland will become a land of blood and desolation. 4tI want to make tho assertion ' right here that we are not going to be disfranchised in Virginia. It is written in the heavens and engraved upon the stars that the Virginia negro does net intend to submit to this disfranchisement. We are told "to let the negro obtain education and wealth it he would gain the political equality which he desires." 1 say there never was a bigger lie uttered. The more the negro advances the more will political rights he denied him. It is not the common negro in the South who is cut off tho registration lists ; it is not the ditch digger; it is tho educated negro, the doctor, lawyer and proacher, who are deprived unlawfully of political rights and manhood by the iniquitous Constitution of Virginia, which cost half a million dollars to name. ' And 1 want to say that hy tho time we get through punching holes in the Constat lit inn ! will cost ihe Slate of Virginia half a million more.'' Hayes then turned his attention to the movement, led by | Booker Washington. " It is claimed that the negro i industrial schools are the proper ! lines of effort for the race. Talk about education and wealth aud say that they make votes lor the negro! It's a lie." lie is reputed to have declared in conclusion:,k And jusi, one word about the question oi the absorption of the races. No two people having the same religion and speaking the same tongue, living together, have ever been kept apart. This is well known aud it is one of the reasons why the dominant race is crushing out the strength ot the negro 111 the South."
