CELEBRATING EMANCIPATION DAY
James Callaway In Macon Telegraph.
In a notable speech at Little Rock,
Ark., on Emancipation Day, Dr. Wil-
kinH, a negro, took occasion to adminis
ter a severe rebuke to the authors and
promoters of Reconstruction. He said:
"The negroes should not forget those
who had held out to them the hand of
real friendship in those trying days.
Those were pretended friends who hud
the negro to believe that Mr. Lincoln's
proclamation ever contemplated the el
evation of the ex-slave to sudden place
and power. Such a course only aliena
ted the negro’s heat friends from him,
and Reconstruction, in its methods, de
tached the negro from those with
whom his lot hud to be cast. The South
was not responsible for this. Our
Southern friends begged that we listen
not to the Reconstruction leaders who
taught us to trust not those whom we
had trusted and who trusted us. There
had been no friction between us and the
Southern people but for those who came
among us to alienate us ami teach us
"On Emancipation Day it is nur duty
to free the mind of the white man from
the impressions made on him when our
race was under the leadership of false
friends. Unless we do this our Emanci
pation celebration will not mean any
thing. I.et us celebrate by returning to
our first love, and let ua join hearts
and hands with them. * • • Eel us
remember that the Southern white man,
ruined aa he was by the war, gave us
food and homes. He fed us when hun
gry, clothed us when nuked, adminis
tered to us when sick, and visited us
when in prison. Let us not forget who
our real friends were. Remember, all
you who think that Lincoln's proclama
tion set you free, that if so, our white
friends were our saviors.”
Here Dr. Wilkins describes a scene
ery, a more galling yoke, than we ever
wore. And let us celebrate by return
ing to our first and best love, and let uh
join hearts and hands with them and
sing with all the soul:
" T n©v©r will l©av© or forsake th»»©.
Where you live I will live, your Goa shall bo my
And where you die there will I b© burled.’
"If this celebration shall mean this to
us, then ere long we shall have occasion
to shout ’Free at last!’ This is the only
kind of blow that we may strike which
will mean liberty and freedom. It is in
this way, and in this way only, that the
negro in America will ever be free. Let
us first free the white man from the im
pressions we made on him under the vi
cious leadership of false friends, and
then we may hope for him to free us
from the bonds which our own hands
have welded about our feet. And not
until that day arrives can we have an
emancipation celebration that will mean
"Let us regain the love which we for
feited for the few political husks on
which we fed, and that love will make
us free. At present I think we are fool
ish for celebrating an event that has
never taken place, and you know it as
well as I. But some things did take
place on that memorable first day of
January. The ruined Southern white
man gave us homes and food. He fed
us when hungry, clothed us when naked,
administereounto us when sick, and vis
ited us when in prison. And our Lord
says for one to do that is to do it for
Him. Let us not forget it, but celebrate
it. Remember, all you who think that
Lincoln’s proclamation set you free,
that if it ia so, our Southern white
friends were our best friends.”
This is a true picture Dr. Wilkins
drawn. But all negroes were not so for
tunate as "Aunt June.” In order to
build up speedily the negroes into the
Republican tuirty, orders were issued
from most of the Freedmen’s Bureaus
for the negroes to leave the old home,
else they would be put hack into slav
ery. And the cruelist of all orders was
this one. It took the negroes away from
their old owners and their children,
forced them among strangers, and also
separated them from each other, for
hardly any two families went to the
same place. This order was to break and
destroy the ties that existed between
the negroes and their former owners.
All done to get speedy control for polit
Had the negro been let alone after
the war and not organized into secret
leagues with aliens for leaders, and not
been taken out from the influence of
the Southern people, but both races
been permitted in their own way to ad
just themselves to the new conditions,
the relations between black and white
would now be a far different story. But
the South was helpless.
Thad Stevens with his noted commit
tee of fifteen on Reconstruction were
that took place on every old ante-bel
lum plantation home. Everyone on the
farm at that period will recognize the
truth of the following pathetic Btory in
Dr. Wilkins' own words:
"Please excuse this seeming digres
sion. I remember well, as if it were but
yesterday, when old mtstruss came into
the kitchen and told my mother:
" ’Aunt Jane, you are free. As free
as I am. And vou can go.’
"She wore a large gray shawl, and as
she turned to go I saw tears on her pale
cheeks. My mother caught hold of her
shawl and with streaming eyes Haiti:
" 'Miss Jennie, where shall I go?
What shall I do? 1 have nine children
and know no one hut you. Why must I
"We were all crying now
" ‘Oh. no, Aunt Jane,' she said, ‘you
need go nowhere. You can stay right
here if you wish, and so long as I have
a crust o bread you and your children
shall eat. 1 will pay you what wages 1
can. And so E ng as I live, and you stay,
if you suffer 1 will suffer too.'
"We stayed, and she did suffer, much
more than we. This scene was at that
moment being enacted in thousands of
homes all over this broad land. Those
words were as the atar of Bethlehem
on that dark night to every negro then
on the plantations of the South, as he
stood dumbfounded at seeing his old
mistress in tears.
"And when old master came to his di
lapidated home from the war. he said
'amen' to every word that old mistress
had said. And all was well, until the
’carpet-bagger' came and, with his
damnable practices, preaching and
promises, hatched the hell into which
the South was plungtd from '65 to ’76,
and out of which the negro came bereft
of the friendship and help of those
whom he knew and who knew him.
those whom he loved and who loved
him. And the scamps tied with their ill-
gotten gains to safer quarters and left
us to shift the best we could and meet
the storm of an outraged manhood. To
day 1 wish you could celebrate the re
lease of our friends from a worse slav-

Losses During the War.
Review of Review*.
Early in the war Lord Kitchener had
said that the struggle might last three
years. What seemed a mere rough
estimate becomes far more significant
examined by the few statistics yet
available, which show the wastage of
Thus it Beems fair to estimate that
Germany has now in the field 3,000,000
men, France 2,000,000, Austria 1,000,-
000, Russia 3,000,000. England at no
distant date will have 1,000,000 on the
continent; Serbia and Belgium may be
reckoned to have 250,000.
Now, as far as Russia is concerned,
her supply of men is, for any ordinary
calculation, inexhaustible. That she
can keep her European force at 3,000,-
000 for three years, despite battle
losses, is hardly debatable. As to Eng
land, her ability to maintain an army
of 1,000,000 on the continent indefinitely
and despite losses is equally to be ac
cepted. It is different with France.
Her available military population may
be reckoned at 4,000,000. Of this she
has already lost 1,000,000 by death,
capture, disease or wounds. Half of
this number may be reckoned as per
manently lost. At this rate, France
will be reduced at the opening of the
third year of war to 2,00o,000. With
her allies she will then have 6,000,000
men. But her losses in this year can
not be made good, save by the new
class coming to the colors in 1917, and
levies from her colonies.
Germany may be reckoned to have
had 6,000,000 men available for service
in July, 1914; 600,000 more will be sup
plied by the combined classes of 1916
and 1917. German losses in the first six
months may be estimated at 1,800,000.
At this rate, 1,800,000 will be removed
permanently from the German lines in
each of the first two years of war.
Thus, at the opening of the third, Ger
many will have 3,000,000 men to draw
on. But her losses thereafter will be
definite, because she will have ex
hausted her reserve. As to Austria,
she has lost more than 1,000,000 already
in her many disasters. She may still
have 1,000,000 in the field, but a year
hence, two years hence, she can hope
for no more, and her resources, too,
will be completely exhausted.
Thus, as the third year of the war
opens, not more than 4,000,000 Austro-
Germans, the last line, will confront
6,000,000 Russians, British and French,
helped by some hundreds of thousands
of Slavs and Belgians, behind whom
will stand Russian and British reserves
of at least 4,000,000. Tim means, with
every discount for the roughness of the
estimate, that some time in the third
year, while Russia and Britain are still
able to keep their armies at their pres
ent point, Austro-German forces will
begin to decline rapidly, and a tremen
dous advantage of numbers will belong
to the enemies of Germany. Such is
the statement of what may be called
the mathematics of murder.

“Stop My Subscription.”
Now York Times.
More attention than has yet been
given to it is deserved by the psychol
ogy of the people who, having seen
something in a newspaper, usually an
editorial article with which they strong
ly disagree, immediately write and
mail an angry letter announcing the firm
intention to take that paper no more.
The apparent purpose of this action—
assuming it to be carried out—is to
punish the expression of the resented
opinions by withdrawing a faction of
the paper’s revenue; but underlying
that aim is probably a desire, conscious
or unconscious, to inspire fear of othtr
losses of the same kind and so lo
coerce the paper by an appeal to its
material interests into a reversal of its
policy and attitude on the question at
Of course, such a reversal for such a
reason would be dishonest as well as
cowardly, but he who proclaims the
stopping of his subscription doesn't
think of that. And how hard to ex
plain is it that anybody should be with
out the willingness, or even without the
eagerness, to hear what can be said
against his views or conclusions! Either
hisc-nfidence in his own judgment is
weak or he prefers to hold notions al
ready accepted, regardless of whether
they are right or wrong.
The reader who will not take a paper
with all the utterances of which he can
not agree does not want a newspaper

comfortable twilight. Papers of that
