Talks to Pike Voters.
Griffin, Ga., August 4.—At the
reunion held at Concord last week
of the Griffin News and Sun cor
respondents the most important
event of the day was the address
by Hon. T. W. Hardwick, recent
ly elected to congress from the
tenth district. The address was
along the general line of the argu
ments made during the congres
sional contest, and was eagerly
listened to by an audience of more
than 1,000 people. The speaker
was frequently interrupted, while
his hearers gave enthusiastic ap
proval as the strongest points in
the address were brought out.
Mr. Hardwick proclaimed and
advocated the doctrine of state
rights, which he said is still un
challenged except on the one sub
ject of prescribing qualifications
for voters. He attacked the jus
tice of this exception, and de
clared that as jurors who must
pass upon the lives, liberty and
properties of their fellow men
were required to be upright and
honest, so ought also those who
are entrusted with the ballot, and
the hopelessly ignorant and con
i’ issedly venal should be excluded.
He charged that the fourteenth
'and fifteenth amendments were
I adopted by the republican party
j when the south was prostrate, in
Order to perpetuate its power. He
i claimed that the great mass of the
people of the north have , never
consented by popular vote to ne
gro suffrage, and that wherever
the question has been presented
negro suffrage has been voted
down, and that In* believed the
time would soon come for a suc
cessful uppeal to the people of the
north and west for the burden to
be lifted from the shoulders of the
The speaker stated that the real
danger of the south was apparent
in statistics from the seven south
ern states —(leorgia, Alabama,
Louisiana, North Carolina, South
Carolina and Virginia—showing
that the negroes constitute 48. R
per cent of the voting population,
and that of this number more
t lmn one-half are totally illiterate.
He charged that education has not
helped the negro, and will not
solve the race problem : and added
that the younger generation in the
south are not as patient and for
bearing with the negroes as were
their fathers. He stated that the
legislature of Georgia in twice de
clining to take vigorous action on
the race question failed to meet
the wishes of the people of the
“The effective franchise," af
firmed Mr. Hardwick, “ought to
be entrusted only to those of our
people who are qualified by intel
ligence and virtue to exercise it
properly, and the proposition can
not be disputed that the right to
vote is an inherent, absolute and
natural right which exists for the
benefit of the individual, but one
which is conferred for the benefit
of, and solely in the interest of,
He defended the action of those
southern states who seek to pro
tect the illiterate whites, while
disfranchising the negro, on the
ground that the whites had made
and fought for the country and
been impoverished as the result
of their efforts; that the Anglo-
Saxon is the only race capable by
heredity and training of maintain

The people of Barnesville and

“This is the first 1 have heard
of any such plan,” said this di
