The massing of the negroes at

threats on the Huttos and other per
sons in this vicinity havo made mat
ters worse and the local merchants
say they will regard it. as exceedingly
fortunate if they are able to .pass
safely through the ordeal necessarily
consequent upon the old man's fu

Volunteers here last night and this
morning, of course, acted as t forci
ble preventive on any move that the
negroes proposed to carry out in lieu
of those threats.
It was with no little regret that
the villagers saw the troops depart,
today and they did not hesitate to
say that they lOared additional

withdrew his men. Assistant Adju

Negroes' Address Deals More Rationally
With Lynching-- "Make Friends with
the People."
Louisville, July 3.-The closing
(lay of the Afro. American council
was marked chiefly by the presen
tation of resolutions embodying ant
address to tho country at large on.
Lh race problem. After its adop
tion the convention adjourned sino
The address in part, is as follows:
"As o mob violeie, it, is gratify.
ing to noto that for the past year or
Lwo tho number of victims showe a
lecided decrease; and while all
Lheso were not members of our race, .
the vast majority was. Notwith
standing this fact, we shoold not. t

ter at this time, were it not that I
while the number of victims is de
ireasing, the variety of provocations
which lead up to this act of violene
is growing more and more insignili
ant (and numerous. It is not an
inusual thing to read of negroes
being lynched for impudence, ref us
ing to obey, striking a white man,
etc. Now, we submit, that lynching
for anLy cause is destructive of any
law, is demoralizing, but to subject
persons accused of--even guilty of,
such trivial offenses, to unlawvful
punishmet and death, is to make
the negro the marked man of the
nation; for him to suffer violence for
such causes will eventually involve1
many of our best people. In some
sections of thie country ist means
death for a negro to attempt to pro
tect the females of his famiLy. WVe
ask in all sincerity:
"Is this American ? Is it right ?
Such actions indicate a tendlency to
anarchy and anarchy for the negro
will terminate in anarchy for all
"TIhe number of those of our race
who are now accused of the name
less crime against woman is so small,
compared with the whole number,
t,hat it is scarcely necessary to dis
cuss this as aL distinct crime. Yet
we make no plea for any man who
may be proved guilty of this crime;
our plea is for law and for the pro.
tection of the innocent.
"It is now clearly evident that the
purpose of those who first started
ostensibly to disfranchise the igno
rant negro has been broadened and
strengthened. Their purpose now in
