UPHOLDS THE PRESIDENT Speak* In Opposition to Re-Enlist* ment ef Oisch^rgsd Members of the Twenty-fifth Regiment Declares That :\ever Again Will the Colored People E?c Ailowed to Politically Dominate a Sovereign State. Washington, Jan. 21.—Senator Fra iler of Tennessee spoke on the Brownsville affair and opposed the passage of any one of the pending bills for the re-enlistment of tho negro Holdiers of the Twenty-fifth regiment who were discharged without honor by the president. Senator Frazier's remarks were of especial interest, as he was a member of the committee on military affairs which investigated the Iirownsville incident, his views being those of a Southerner who had SENATOR JAMES B. FRAZIER. an intimate knowledge of the negro race. Speaking of the treatment of the negro by the people of the South Mr. Frazier said: "1 would not be entirely frank If I did not say that upon certain phases of the race question I, in comnini with the rest of the South, have stood, and I believe will ever stand, firin and unalterable. First, never again will the negro race be allowed to po litically dominate and control a sov ereign state of this Union. To do so would be to enthrone ignorance and give it dominion over intelligence and to bring back the rapine and utter reckless debauchery of the re construction era. Second, the social barrier which separates the races will never be allowed to be lowered. To do so would destroy the purity and integrity of the white race and shock the sensibilities and outrage the moral sense of the Caucasian race the world over. Difficult Problem to Solve. "For forty years, in patience and kindness, the people of the South have wrejted with this problem. It Is still unsolved. What the end will be only God, in His infinite wisdom, can see. Shall it be that the black race will be deported? If feasible it would remove the last remaining barrier to complete the unity of the American people. Shall it be a race war, bloody, ierce, exterminating—a war for the survival of the fittest?—God forbid. Shall it be amalgamation and the un peukable honor of a corrupted and infi nor race? To allow it would be to destroy that civilization which is at once -lit Si.:ili bli. th"' ill d'.vil What does this mean? of the Ersseniials of the happy homes of to-day is a vast fund of information as to the best methods of promoting health and happiness and ri ht living and knowledge of the world's !*\t products.

To do so, without the one raeo dominating and ruling the other, would be to belle the universal ver dict of racial history. I do not know. But one thing 1 do know, that the solution of this problem rests primar ily in the hands of the Southern white man and the Southern black man and enlln for the wisest counsel and broadest conservatism of both. I know that It can never be solved by on far removed from Its fatal touch mid whose minds aif not filled with tl.e appalling sense of the deep racial difficulties with Which It l« hedged nhout." MEANS NEGRO DOMINATION Tillman Opposes Republican Plan of Uplifting Colored Man. Washington, Jan. 21.--Senator Till man denied that he was opposed to the education of negroes, as Presi dent-Elect Taft is reported to have said at Augusta, Ga., was the case. He said, however, that he was an tagonistic to the Republican plan of uplifting the negroes, which means domination by them in the South. Mr. Tillman added that if the Re. publicans would abandon this plan by repealing the fifteenth amendment the result would be to give the states con trol of their own affairs and thus giva them an opportunity to assist the ne groes in a legitimate way. He declared, however, that the South would never consent to the ele vation of the negroes in any way that would enable them to put their heels on the necks of 11,• white people.
