army three companies of colored
troops who ia .! amuck at Hrowns
Ville, 'LVxu,-. '1 he n -ajroes recog
nize the fact that bv voting in a
bo.lv they possess a political powei
in some of the Northern cities
which overawed the small politicians
and some of the small judges. If
they succeed in these various en
terprises, the negro agitators may
well come to the conclusion that
the white man has no rights which
the colored man is bound to respect.
"Senator Tillman, of Eolith
Carolina, has Leeii invited to de
liver u lectuie in Chicago next
Tuesday for the benefit of a hospi
tal. With characteristic charity
Mr. Tillman has consented to de
liver the lecture. Hut the Chicago
negroes say that lie shall not lie
iiertnitted to do so. They do not
;nov, and have no reason to sup
pose, that the fcouth Carolinian
will say anything distasteful to the
negro race. Their determination
is that he shall not be iierinitted to
eay anything at all. The con
stitutional right of free spe-ch is
to be abolished. The South Caro
lina negroes, who know Mr. Till
man, are said to be greatly attached
to liim, because of his uniform
kindness and humanity and justice
in dealing with them. The late
Senator Hoar, of Massachusetts,
after a long acquaintance with .Mr.
Tillman, declared that he was one
of the most patriotic and most use
ful members of the United States
Senate. But the Chicago uegio
organ says he is a disgrace to the
Senate, and that he shall not be
fernmted to speak in thier city,
n Chicago the negro is very num
erous and very powerful. For
years there have been negro teachers
in white schools to teach the sons
and daughters of white people and
to discipline and correct them when
they r.'iiiire it. At the last election
a negro judge was elected and the
attempt of the white Kepublieaus
who Humiliated and elected him to
count him out greatly exasperated
the colored people. Now they are
asserting themselves by undertaking
to say that a member of the United
States Senate shall ifot be permitted
to deliver an address for charity in
Chicago, because they do not like
him. Mr. Tillman is a hard man
'to intimidate, but if the Chicago
ipolice leave him at the mercy of a
howling negro mob, he will be help
less. If the city government of
Chicago in any respect resembles
that of Philadelphia, we may ex
.pect some judge the negro judge,
iperhaps to issue an order to pro
hibit Mr. Tillman from lecturing
in the city, or else he may be left
to the mercy of a lynching negro
"The denunciation of Mr. Roose
velt by negroes all ovei the country
for his order dismissing three com
panies of negro rioters from the
United States army is an arrogant
attempt to intimidate the President
of the United States. If it should
be successful and Mr. Roosevelt
ehould permit himself to be
"bullied" by these negroe meetings,
infinite harm will be done done to
the army by causing it to be con
sidered in part a licensed, murder
ous mob, and to "the negroe them
selves. All of the negroes in the
three companies dismissed may not
have been engaged in the rioting in
Brownsville, but all of them made
themselves accessory to the crime
by shielding and conceahrg the
criminals. These negro troops ran
riot in Brownsville last summer and
tised the arms provided by the
government for the public protec
tion to fire into the dwellings of
peaceful and law abiding citizens.
The order fodismissiug them from
the army was a most proper one,
for if soldiers, who are paid and
quipped to protect the people, are
permitted to attack indiEcriminate-
y unoffending men, women and
children, then the regular army,
instead of being a protection, will
become a national peril to he
abolished. The President's order
discharging these rioters from the
arinv has been suspended and may
be revoked. If it is levoked, it
will cause infinite injurv to the army
and io the prestige of the President.
Worse still, it ill tend to make
the race issue a national question.
The negro is entitled, under the
laws of the land, to the same po
litical rights and to the same mea
sure of justice as the whi'e man,
but no iii'M-e, and the oll'eiisive mid
insolvent spirit which many of the
race have been manifesting recently:

men from near and far, to spend the

from Italy, Spain, Germany, and
England have secim d license from j

To Public Hrlioul Teachers.
I am now mailing the North
Carolina Day programs, special re
port blanks to be tilled out on De
cember 20th, a letter from the
State Superintendent and the pro
gram for the next meeting of the
Association of Public School Teach
ers. You are to observe North Caro
lina Day on December 1 4-th, and
you will be expected to obey the
law without question. This is 6et
apart as a day to study particular
facts in North Carolina history,
and it is not necessary to have a
public entertainment. North Caro
lina Day can be observed as a re
citation on North Carolina history,
except you take an entire day for it.
However, we hope that the pa-en ts
will all go to the school houses on
the 14th, and enjoy the day with
the teachers and children.
The special reports must be made
promptly on December 20th.
The date for the next meeting of
the Association of Public School
Teachers was changed from Decem
ber 1st to December 8th. Every
teacher will be expected.
Very truly yourp,
