THE BLACKS DYITG OFF.
THE NEXT CENSUS WILL SHOW A
Plantations That Were Formerly
Swarming With Them Now Almost
Depopulated The Problem That
Stares the South in the Face.
Front the Philadelphia Times.
Augusta, Ga., Dot*. 32. —“50 far as the
negro race is concerned, the coming census
will be an exceedingly interesting one. inas
much as it will unquestionably dispel tl(e
popular delusion that the colored man is
progressing and increasing; and heuce it
may probably set people thinking as to how
the condition of this people may be really
improved. As to their progress we who live
in the very midst of the negro population
know that it is decidedly more retrograde
than otherwise; while the mortuary reports
published in the newspapers show that the
death rate is double, trehle and often even
still larger, that of the whites. The census
of 1860 was to a great extent speculative, on
account of the chaotic condition of affairs
at that period; hut the streugtli of the race
was undoubtedly underestimated. Hence
the apparent increase in tbe following cen
sus, and hence also the fallacy that the ne
gro population is largely increasing.”
The gentleman whose remark- are quoted
above Fins been, ever since tbe doso of the
civil war, a large planter in Seriven county,
Georgia, ami in support of his statement as
to an undoubted decrease in population
among the negioes, he continued:
“Here, on uiy place, there were formerly
eighty negroes—to-dav there, are only two'
My neighbor, Major Gibbons, a Massachu
setts gentleman, bad some 400; the Wades
and the Joneses hail some JOO each; the Her
ringtons, 100; the Hosticks, over the Savan
nah river, some 700, and the Martins about
500. Where are tliev all to-day: Why, on
the plantations referred to' there is hardly
to be found a negro to hitch up one’s horse.
Many wandered off into other States after
fveftdpm, but numbers of them returned,
broken dbvvn from hardships, to die within
sight of the wrecks of the‘homes they de
serted. In place of our old-time negroes
we have wanderiug tribes of thriftless wo -
men and young men, who will rather endure
hunger for days than do an hour's
honest work to earn a good square meal.
This state of affairs Is not confined
to this neighborhood. It obtains to a
greater or less extent, almost everywhere in
this and other negro States. But what can
be done! There seems to be no remedy for
it. If I hire a negro to do a dav’s work for
me in nire out ot ten cases he will ask me
for his ‘rations’ in advance, or money to
bay food with on the plea of desperate
poverty. If I give him this food or money
the chances ate nine to one that the man
will never turn up<to do the work or that I
shall hear of his working in somebody eise's
field who was not quite so easy with him as
I was. And yet wo have not the shadow if
a law by which I can hold such a rascal
responsible. Our statutes do not recognize
that this species of trickery is obtaining
either money, food or goods under false
Even to one who visits this part of the
world after many years of absence it is
patent that the negro population is changed
and decimated—more than decimated. In
place of the respectful, unsophisticated old
“uncles” and “aunties” are to be found a
few darkies, whoa* main object appears to
lie to victimize, in some manner or another,
the white man. Give a negro man a job of
hoeing, for instance, and you must literally
stand by him the greater part of the time
he is doing it, in order to insure
its being done anything like prop
erly, or often done at all. Give
negro woman a job of washing,
and if you fail to look after her sharply she
will spoil what of the clothing she does not
Steal Rascality seems to be a component
j art of the nature of the country negro of
to-day—if not of his city brethren—while
his roaming, unsettled manner of life would
almost indicate that Numidian blood runs
in the veins of the West African darkey, or
that they servilely and faithfully imitate
the nomadic trait of tbe people of Nu
midia. for a country darkey is here to-day
and miles off to-morrow—at least many of
There are, of course, some reliable negroes
remaining in this quarter of the world; but
these are few and they are scattered over a
wide area. They* are mostly farming oh
their own account, and by no means object
to making the admission that their success
in life is cuie to having been kept in strict
discipline by the white man. The negroes
of Western and Southern Africa, the writer
knows, from actual observation among
them, are fairly honest and moral —the di
rect unti theses of the average negro of the
present generation. This would seem to in
dicate that our civilization does not agree
with therm The religion of the negro of to
day is hysteria. It has no more beneficial
effect’ on their mode of life than has the
hooting of an owl. What seems to be
needed badly by this peculiar race is the
discovery of some unknown system of
moral ethics which would enforce houesty
upon the males and honesty and chastity
upon the females. Until this shall have
beep found they will remain unprofitable
servants. Their notions of morality are
such as cannot be contemplated without a
shudder. . Their religious rites are a farce
and too often a filthy and blasphemous
burlesque upon the rites of whieh they are
odious imitations. Such, however, is their
condition here, but with city congregations
the case may be slightly different.
It i$ evident to uJi who live among the
negroes of the country that those labor and
other organizations whose agents are visit
ing the South and enrolling negro members
are committing a grave error, although
such societies may firmly believe that they
are doing good work. The negroes regard
this proceeding with actual contempt, for
they abhor, in their heart of hearts, every
attempt at fraternity with the white man
as cordially as they despise the authors
of such attempts. Nature has given
them little in common with us, qnd they ask
for as little as possible. Some intelligent,
industrious negroes rise to captain degrees
of eminence as police court lawyers. They
can talk and are usually shrewd at subter
fuges and shallow points. But it seems an
absolute impossibility to make even fair
mechanics or arti-ans of them. They are
admirably gotxl Oibeonltes hewers of
wood and drawers of water —when they
are made to work, but it is clear that the
curse on Canaan still hovers over them, im
peding their progress to be other than ser
vants of servants to their brethren.
A movement is going on among the
negroes of Southeastern Georgia and South
Carolina for a wfiolesale emigration to
Floi Ida, and no reasoning can b i rought, to
bear against it. Several years ago large
numbers went to Kansas. Most of them nv
turned, however, noarly starved. Then
Texas was their objective point for expe
dition number two. Some wno went there
are still in the clutches of the law of the
I/me Star State; tbe others who are not
dead are back again. Last year there was
a greast rush for Arkansas, the poor deluded
creatures selling their corn, often tor 10c. a
bushel, to pay their way thitherward. In
time the bottom fell out of this bucket; still
none of their past experieooe can deter tinea
from their present movement on Florida.
Their Numidian blood is perhaps the cause.
Be this as it may, these poor stones are ever
rolling, gathering no moss the meanwhile.
This roaming disposition is not confined to
one or more counties in Georgia; it is gen
eral throughout the South, and its attend
ant hardships may have much to do with
the average short life of and frightfully high
rate of mortality among the negroes. An
exodus rarely leaves a locality without
friends remaining at home being, a very
short while, informed of a death or two
among the “exodusters.” -Take the weekly
njortunry re|iorf.s published in the-news
pa ere r.l cities in which the white popula
te > i iar exceeds the black, and, as the g>*n
ti;nan above Quoted said, the death rate
among the blacks it stupendously greater
tuau that among the whites.
Among children especially is this large
mortality noticeable. A negro may run to
a city and soon Mini work as a porter, bar
ber, waiter, or the like. He may do well
tor a whhile. but his excesses ana other fail -
mgspften taken him to jail, an insane
asylum, or a premature grave. Under the
most, favorable circumstances his success
would appear fleeting, for negroes long es

These flights generally take p nee in sum

SEWING-WOMEN S WAGES.
How They Have Sunk to Their Pres
From the .Ye:c York Eeeninn Post.
Under the leadership of Miss Van Etten,
who has devoted several years to the problem
of how to better the condition of working
women in New York city, there is to be an
attempt at organizing women wage-workers
into something like the unions of workmen.
As yet the poorest paid of New York’s
workingwomen—those who sew upon cheap
clothing for the tailors’ shops, and those
who work upon women's underclothing for
the fancy stores —arc the worst pai l of ail.
Stories have been printed within the last
fortnight to the effect tlint women work for
yearn at a time at less than 50c a day, sew
ing from early morning until long after
dark at night, and the statistics collected by
Miss Van JStten and some of yie agents em
ployed by her, show that the wages received
by more than 15.090 women who sew in their
homes, do not average more than $4 a
#eek the year round for the hardest of hard
Several times thp leaders in labor move
ments have undertaken to flml a remedy for
the low wages paid to the sewing-women,
and the only suggestion toward a solution
has been to take such work entirely out of
lire tenements and concentrate it in large
shops. This has been done with the cigar
makers, who are now forbidden by law to
do work in their tenements. So long as
women take work to their homes it is hard
for any urion.to find out exactly what they
were paid; the women who do such work
are usually very ignorant aud refuse to
spend the little tune aud the few pennies
which it would be ueoessarv to give in order
to organize a working union. That much
suffering does actually exist among these
people is unquestionable, and the many sug
festions toward an improvement seems to
ave resulted in nothing practical. Almost
periodically the matter is “written up’ in
some newspaper, and it is pointed out again
t.iat the life of a family subsisting upon less
than $4 a week cannot be either a healthful
or a pleasant one. The fact that the vast
quautitips of men’s clothing and women's
underclothing are made in the living rooms
of the very poorest people, clan quarter-.,
where cooking, working, eating and sleep
ing go on. where children are roared an i
people die, has more than once suggested the
jioviibiiity of the spread of contagious dis
ease through clothing which comes from
these places. Work is not susjiended be
cause scarlet fever or other contagious dis
ease is among the children, the beds are
often made up of piles of clothing in dif
ferent stages of preparation for the shops
to which they go. This is one danger of
work in the tenements which the law might
Several employers of large numbers of
work-people were asked as to what possible
stops sewing-women might take in order to
obtain better pay. Not one of the persons
questioned denied that the condition of both
men anti women, and even children, in the
tenements where cheap sewing is the occu
pation, is miserable iti the extreme. One
manufacturer of cheap clothing said:
“I often go among the tenements of Es
sex street to see the people who do my
work, and I.confess that it is a heartrend
ing sight, especially the sight of the unfor
tunate children who seem to. survive only
by miracle; to tell the truth, the life before
them, when they do grow up, is scarcely
worth living for. I can cite scores of fami
lies in which the sewing-machine humsfrom
6 o’clock in the morning until 9or 10
o’clock at night; hi which every member of
the family more than six year's old works
hard; in which anything but the coarsest of
food is unknown; 111 winch rest and recrea
tion are equally unknown. Sundays and
week days there is the same unending
drudgery carried on at. a speed which ex
haus s the workers. These people drop off
to sleep at 9 o’clock and stop work simply
because they can work no longer. The
world of children brought up in the dens is
a pretty dismal one, as may be imagined,
and the only hope for them is that the laws
may send them to school, and open a way
Perhaps the most effective way in which
women can be helped to helptheinselvos, de
vised so far in New York, has been through
the clubs for workingwomen, which now ex
ist in a dozen different parts of the city. In
order to help women to better wages they
must do something better than plain sew
ing, in which business the competition
makes the case hopeless. The girl who
wants to make better wages must do better
work in one of the many branches of in
dustry open to wtimch. These clubs not
only aim to help gilds to get work by koep
ing records of vacancies, but they afford
opportunities - for improving and
instruction at nominal cost. Lessons are
given in the evenings, lectures upon ail
sorts of topics are delivered, and the mem
ber who does not rise to something better
than common drudgery must be dull in
deed. but such' clubs cannot affect the
wages paid for the commonest kind of sow
ing. And, inevitably, instances in which,
owing to sickness, incompetence, or misfor
tune, women work bard for barely sufficient
money to keep body arid soul together, will
continue to bo brought to the notice of
