terviewer recently: “Yon must hear in
mind that one-half of the people of this
country are members of some kind of cor-

Ont of the popular clamor against railroads
havo grown many ndverso decisions of the
courts which, if logically followed out,

idly followed up, would embarrass seriously
the prosperity of the country."

These two nations cherished the hope of
dividing European Turkey between them,
and up to the Tnrko-Italian war of 1877
their prospects were fair for accomplishing
their object. The Congress of Berlin, how
ever, hot up the semi-independent state of
Bulgaria, greatly to the disgust of the other
two, who imagined t!i..t instead of the
«rectum of a new *tate the proper thing
'was the extension of their boundaries.
The Bulgarians, being rendered a
Kittle? big-headed by their success,
•lev lured themsche* altogether independent
of Turkey, annexed a large slice of Ottoman
territory, and prepared to fight the Turks,
but, to their disgust, were confronted in
stead by the Servian* and Greek*, while the
Forte, whom tLey had justly offended, now
offers to send troops to help them against
their new enemies. This is the present sit
uation, which is perhaps the best illustra
tion ever seen of the changes brought about
in political matters by the whirligig of
“The Problem of the South."
The Southern State* have on hand a more impor
tant work than any that ha* been attempted since
the beginning of our national history. Whatever
help can be afforded them should be given unstint
edly. Whatever obstacles can be removed from
their path should be removed by the united effort
of the whole people as a patriotic duty. These
thing* ought to be done because the North and the
South make one country, and because we have all
come to see that a disaster to one section is a disas
ter to both section*, and that weakness in one place
1h a weakness in every place.
Six and a half millions of colored people are to lie
fitted for the exercise of their rights. This is a fact
of great magnitude. Wo say they “are to be fitted,”
because it is clear that no mere military necessity
which calls forth an emancipation proclamation
and no cou*tituUonal amendment which bestows
citizenship can transform an uueducated and irre
sponsible man into au educated and responsible cit
izen. The task, then, which has been set tbe South
is Titanic. It is more severe than any which the
North has ever been called upon to perform. So far
it has been bandied with masterly energy, and if
many mistakes have been committed the only
under is tbat it has, on the whole, been done so
The processes by which this part of our popula
tion is to be made morally accountable, self-
respecting and industrious, aud therefore lit to
take an active part in the practical government of
the country, are very slow in their action. This
generation, a second aud a third generation, may
pass before the colored people as a whole will be
thoroughly equipped. At present it is patent to the
most careless observer, therefore, that auch a mpi
of citizens, ignorant of the first principles of politi
cal economy, and unacquainted with the require
ments of national prosperity and security, may
become an element of very serious danger,
goes without saying that if any national
contingency were to arise which should cause a full
colored vote, au enormous amount of power would
be in tbe hands of those who are least adapted to
wield it. The fate of the republic might possibly
rest with men who do not know the significance of
die word "republic.” Our immediate safety, then,
lies in the indtfferenco to the ballot which prevails
among them to so large an extent.
This statement from tUe New York Herald
contains many pertinent (nets and some ad
missions which will be of value at another
time. But the remedy suggested by the
Herald—two “equally balanced political
parties in the South”—is not the remedy
for this day and generation. Between
the safety which lies in the negro's “in
difference to the ballot," and the “two
equally balanced pnrties" are dan
gers that may wreck a half score of
States, if one is abandoned and tbe other
energetically striven for. If the present
safety of the nation lies in this indifference,
its future safety lies in the gradual working
of social forces for removed from politics.
There is no wisdom in stirring np smoulder
The social forces that should be left to
govern and detenuine this question may
be easily pointed out. The negroes who have
attained the position of property holders,
who have established family circles and ac
quired a pride iu their positions, and who
value the respect with which they are re
garded, are already conservators of the
pence and upholders of the law. The foster
this process of moral development is allowed
to proceed, the sooner the dangerous ele
ment will dwindle. Any attempt to urge
this excitable, irresponsible peoplo into
politics would be suicidal and doubly de
structive. If, as the Herald says, “it is
perfectly clear that no mere military neces
sity which calls forth an emancipa
tion proclamation, and no constitu
tional amendment which bestows
citizenship can transform on unedu
cated and irresponsible man into nn edu
cated and responsible citizen,” it is per
fectly clear that a Hepnblican organization
throughout the South, for the purpose of
dividing np men of this class, cannot make
him responsible nor can it educate bim.
Men must become good citizens to vote
right. They cannot exercise the suffrage
with wisdom until they learn their
own needs through their own
perience. We much prefer in
this section tbe nogro as self-led, than the
negro led by Republican politicians.
One fault we find with President Cleve
land is that by bis inattention to the direct
appeals of this Southern people, he sus
tains in office in this section the sole re
maining firebrands of Republicanism,
which serve at times to kindle dunger-
ous fiames. Another is that
by tbe apparent surrender of
Georgia pntronage to men who took office
through coalitions with negroes and the
wont forces of society, he bids fair to ex
pose the State to just the very danger
which the Herald dreads for the Union,
coalition of bod politicians, office-holders
and negroes in Georgia, backed by Federal
patronage, will give ns a government worse

We believe that if this matter were
brought to the attention of the President
many of these people would be allowed to
return to their homes, having Buffered al
ready more than the statute provided for.
Senator Jones's position is a good one.
We look to see strong efforts made in Con
gress to establish somewhere in the South
prisons for Southern offenders.
The Negro a* a Victim.
It has been developed, upon a basis of
official figures, tbat tbe heaviest losses in
the Union army were borne by colored
troops. The average percentage of loss in
the Union army was 15.49, or 31 men from
every 200 in the field. Of the negro men
who served in the army, 41.13 per cent, lost
their lives—that is, 40 ont of every 100.
This fact suggests the thought that if the
Republican party, as it claims, really fought
the war, it used the colored brother very
badly. The negro is rarely ever subject to
homesickness, he is used to violent exercise
in theepen air and the rays of the Southern
sun. If camp life had any marked
effect upon him it would natural be to im
prove. It is likely then that he suffered
during the war from casualties and extra
ordinary hardships. It used to be said tbat
the colored troops always went into battle
in the advance, spurred on by leveled bayo
nets, to face frowning muzzles. At Peters
burg they were pushed pell mell into the
crater und suffered death where no white
troops would have been led by any officer
If the Republican party fought the war
tho negro can thank it for so planning the
campaign as to cause two out of every five
colced soldiers in the field to bite the diiBt,
where but one of every ten Republicans
went down. This is a new bond of nnion.
Southern Criminal* anil Northern Prliton*.
Senator Jones, of Florida, in his speech
before the National Prison Congress at
Chicago, has attracted widespread attention
and favorable comment on tbe part of
the Northern and Southern press,
The Senator's efforts were exerted
in behalf of the persons sent from
the South to the United States prison st
Albany, New York. He tal efl the ground
that in thus placing them beyond the care
and ministrations of friends and kindred,
among aliens and strangers, and exposing
them to the rigors of a climate to which
they are unaccustomed, the government in
fiicts punishment not contemplated by the
law. The Boston Herald editorially com
mends tho Senator and bis humanity. The

aud Monday opened weak, under the unfavorable
foreign advices, but tho report of tho Natloual Cot
ton Cxehaugo estimating tho crup at no more than
6,800,000 hales, and narrating various unfavorable
conditions which had arisen in tho courso of Octo
ber. caused an active demand to cover contracts,
and some speculation for the rise, on the belief that
pricea had at length reached a safe basis, upon
which thero was a quick recovery of 30 to 25 polnta.
Tbe movement did not, bowover, receive general
support, but at the advance there were freah eellen
for the decline. The bureau report which ap
peared on Tuesday waa construed favorably, and

covery. and near tho cloae of Wedneaday

ing the "bear” party the first decided check it had
received in many months, bat the beet prices of the

The Negro Again,
A New England paper says;
"The Southern Gorernon who provided the Sun
day Harold with a half column sensational head am
tha opinion that the colored man la lew Inclined
vote than formerly. Tho mason of this, al
though not stated in their communications, la ob
vious. The negroes have been beaten, bulldoxed
and maaaacmd; they have been cheated with tisane
ballots, and their votes hav: not been counted, till
they have learned by hitter experience that It ie nee-
lew to ga to the polls.”
This is the opinion of an editor who
knows about os much of tho Southern
negro aa the hog does of astronomy. Liv
ing here among the negroes, intimately ac
quainted with the character and history and
aspirations of the race, we tell the honest
people of New England, that the negro is
less inclined to vote than formerly because
the necessity for his vote, os pointed ont
by the llepublicon agents, has been dis
proved by time; because the party has vio
lated every promise mode him; because it
has abandoned him; because it has robbed
bim; because he U doing well under Demo
cratic government; because life's everyday
duties and necessities demand his whole
timo; and because be realize* that this is,
after all, n white man's conntry.

THE ABBEVILLE FRACTICIDE,
In Which a Shot-Gun nnt! Whlvky Figure
Hawkinsville, November 10.—The kill
ing of Steve Johnson, of Abbeville, hut
Saturday grew out of a difficulty between
Eli Johnson and Gaston Barnes, a young
merchant of that place. Eli Johnson was
in Barnes's store abusing him and finally
attacked him, Gaston Barnes protecting
himself with a large moat knife. The row
attracted tho attention of the marshal,
brother of tho murderer, who succeeded
-parating the two fighting men and
threatened to arrest his brother, Eli
Johnson, if he did not behave. The mur
derer left nnd returned n few minutes later,
armed witli a shot-gun. Finding bin brother
in Barnes's store he approached him and
told him he would give him a reason to ar
rest him and immediately shot him in the
stomach, killing him instantly. During
tiie excitement and crowd which gathered
around the dead man the murderer found a
lianee to escape, and up to now no cine of
him tins been found, htovo Johnson wns
buried Sunday morning.
Judge Darling Johnson, father of both
young men, is highly respected in his com
munity, nnd is a brother to William John
son, who was killed a few months ago by
Arainmell and Williams, of Pulaski county.
A DELUGE OF WARRANTS.
Hawkinsvillb, November 10.—Tho nrrest
and imprisonment of old man T. D. Hud
son, by the officers of Macon, wns without
legal warrant or authority. When lie was
landed at the depot in Hawkins ville, the
sheriff, with a precept from Judge Kibbee,
took him from tho live officers and men
ho went to Slacon to bring dm old uinii
down. Ho wns brought before tho Judge
the next day under habeas corpus and dis
charged, ns the offense with wuich he was
charged was one unknown to the lnw.
Upoii his discharge another pur
ported wnrrant was placed in
the hands of an officer for his re-arrest.
This wns the wnrrant under which he was
arrested in Mncon by telogram, but wns so
defective that the officer here refused to ex
ecute it. A third warrant was then placed
in the hands of nn officer, nnd he was re-
arrested, but was again taken by habeas
corpus before Judge Kibbeo nnd again dis-
chnrgcd, as the warrant was for another of
fense, unknown to the law, A fourth war
rant was then issued charging him with as
sault under which he was arrested nnd af
terwards discharged by prosecutor. Being
released, the old man renewed his journey,
we suppose, to the West.
TWO BIG BLAZES.
Tennille, November 1G.—A destructive

both dealers in general merchandise, who
