EXPLAINS 11 SELF.
The following ia a copy of a letter
which was Bent to Senator Pritcbard last
Saturday and id self-explanatory:
Raleigh, N. C, Jan. 22, 1898.
Hon. J. C. Pritchard,
U. S. Senator, Washington, D. C.
My Dear Sir: Referring to the conver
sation between you, Recorder Cheatham
and myself on the 22d of last December,
in relation to the Postmastership of this
city, and at which you expressed a de
sire, readiness and willingness to support
me for said position, I will say that after
mature deliberation, I have decided to
withdraw from said contest for several
reasons, but chief among which, I may
mention, the fact that the Democratic
party, by its hypocritical cry of " White
Men vs. Negro Domination." might find
in my appointment to said position a
powerful weapon with which to inflame
the minds of prejudiced people, and
thereby gain an advantage, which other
wise they do not possess.
It is plain to all obs rvers of political
moves in this State, that the battle this
year with the Democratic ringsters on
one side, and the plain, common people
on the other, is to determine whether
we shall in the future continue the pres.
ent honest election law, in which every
man who is now a qualified voter ehal
have the right to cast one ballot, and
have it honestly counted, or whether, es
in several of the other Southern States,
a favored few, and they all Democrats.
shall do the voting for the entire people,
and that too under sanction of an instru
ment, misnamed " the constitution." In
this great struggle for human rights and
personal liberty, I desire to be unfettered
so that in the future, as in the past, lean
do my whole duty in defense of the peo
pie. The ascendency of the Democratic
party, in the next Legislature, means the
disfranchisement, by one means or anoth
er, of at least one hundred thousand
negro voters, and doubtless as many white
voters, and I do not care to accept a posi
tion, which I have reason to believe,
would in the least aid that party to carry
a single precinct in our State in the ap
The Civil Service Law, which would
keep Democrats in the office, contrary to
to my wishes, while Republicans just as
efficient and deserving as I am, would
be kept out of those places, is another
reason why I do not desire the place.
Thanking you, and all others who have
stood by me in this matter, I am,
Yours very truly,
(Signed) James II. Young.
case better. It is true that under a gov
ernment which theoretic illy gives the
right to vote to every male citizen above
twenty-one years of age who has never
been convicted of a felony and who la
bors under no mental disability, it is not
an ideal condition that any class should
be disfranchised under a technicality of
law. But what can b3 done about it?
No Northern State or community would
permit itself to be goverrud by its igno
rance &r d poverty, and no more can
Southern States or communities sfford
this. Technicalities are preferable to
violence. It in a cordilion and not a
theory which confronts some of the States
of the South, and they must be pardoned
if they deal with it on the basis of self -preservation,
provided t hey do this in the
kindliest manner possible.
This seems to us to furnish sufficient
evidence of what the Democrats of North
Carolina intend to do with the rights of
the negro voters if they can only get the
power, viz., the Leiblature. Let us beware.
MUCII IX LITTLE.
Anent the matter of the disfranchise
ment of the colored voters by the Demo
cratic party in the Southern States, we
publish below an editorial from the Char
lotte Observer, one of the leading Demo
cratic newspapers of this State, which
contains much food for thought for all of
those who are opposed to these disfran
chising laws. The article in question also
shows that the Democratic party in the
North is not only apologizing for but is
in sympathy with the disfranchisement cf
negio voters. The article in the Obser
ver is as follows:
BARD QUESTION TO MEET.
Under the above heading the Brooklyn

uuytc uibuubbus me suiirage regulation
of the new constitution ot South Caro
lina with a breauth and judici.uaness of
view which we are not in the habit of
rinding in newspapers outbide of the
SSouth in their dealing with the peculiar
questions which press for solution in this
bection. Reciting that these regulations
are that "any person who shall apply for
registration after January 1, lb9y, if oth
erwise qualified, snail be registered: pro
vided, mat he can both read and write
any teciion of this constitution submit
ted to him by the registratijn officer, or
can show that he owns and has paid all
taxes collectible during the previous y ar
on property in this State aaseBsed at $310
or more," the Eagle observes that be
tween the time 01 the adoption of the
constitution and the present 90,000 whites
and 12,000 blacks have registered. The
remaining 128,000 blacks are now dis
franchisee! until they can read the con
stitution to the satisi action of the elec
tion officers, or until they have paid all
the collectible taxes on property worth
$310, and submits its comment as fol
lows: The people of that State and of other
Southern States have had a problem to
meet and they are meeting it in the best
possible way. It is useless to say that
there BhoulJ be manhood suffrage in the
South. If every man had a vote South
Carolina would ue controlled by negroes.
So would Mississippi and so would Louii
iana. Such a result would be intolerable
especially when we remember the igno
rance and the ancestry of the blacks. It
is a condition that has confronted the
Southerners and they have met it with
commendable patience and discretion.
The Northerners would not have been
more tolerant than they have been.
"There are some disadvantages, it is
true, in the disfranchisement of a large
population. It gives to South Carolina,
ior instance, a representation in Congress
greater than is her due. It takes many
more votes in Brooklyn to elect a Repre
sentative than it does in that State, be
cause the voting population more nearly
approximates the actual population. The
South has more Congtessmen then its
population warrants. If it were not for
the fact each of the thinly settled West
ern States has two Senators as well as
several members of the Ilouse of Repre
sentatives in every Congress, the evil
would deserve more attention than it now
gets. Taking the West and the South
together, there is an average of distribu
ted power that is reasonably sound."
No Southern paper could have put the

The Tribune gives the lvnchings bv years
as follow: In 1895, 184; l!S80, 13S: 1887,
122; 1888, 142; 1889, 176; 1890, 127; 191,
192; 1892, 231; 1893, 200; 1994, 190; 1895,
171; 1896, 131.
The Tribune is incorrect in reporting
four lynchinars in Njrth Carolina, for, in
fact, there was only one, and Governor
Russell had the military en route to the
scene of lynching at that time to protect
the prisoner. But for the missing of the
train by the Sheriff there would not have
been that one lynching to blacken the
fair name of North Carolina. The pres
ent Executive officers of our State do all
in their power t prevent lynching-", aud
but for theeneouraeementandaiTtiiniroa
of the Democratic pre?s the spirit of lynch
law ana moo rule would so.n be a thing
of the pat in this St ite. It will be ob
served in the foregoing statemeat that
the lynching are mobt abundant in
the States where the Democrats have ab
solute and undisputed control, and in all
of these cases, as far as we have been able
to find out, the victims are Negrors. A
study and coin par is n of the figures will
show that in the States where d sfran
chisements and other debauches upon
the ballot-box are practiced that thre
crime and lawlessness abounds and bus
full sway. It also proves conclusively
that continued rule b Dean cracy natur
ally brings these evils as it is only by
sucn mttiio is that it can continue in
power. Tiie fair mindeJ, liberty-loving
and law-abiding citizens of North Caro
lina can learn much by a serious leflec
tion upon these matters.

Mr. D C. Covington, who writes a
weekly letter to the Charlotte Observer
about the doings of Afro-Americans, in
his letter to that paper of fie 16th inst.,

other and equally as humiliating wrong
heaped upon the colored men of that
State by that baneful instrument. He

that the n-gro inanho d of that State

State; that new educational impetus has
taken place among the negroes of South
Carolina and that thev fr..t
endeavor to fit themselves for good c ti-
z-nehip along every avenue of life."
What South Carolina has done to disfran
chise her negro voters should put new
life in the negn es throughout this coun
try. We as a race cannoc atford to live
in this country and be as dumb driven
cattle with no citizen rights whatever.
Let the true race leaders look to this.
By a careful reading of the above it
will be seen that the Dooiocrats of that
State in order to make nugatory the votes
of the few r,egroes who have not been
disfranchised they, by the same Consti
tution, have prohibited the negro from
holding any office under the State gov
ernment whatever, and this will not only
include all elective offices, but all ap
pointive, such as school committeemen,
magistrates, constables, and even jurors.
With such a government as this rule by
the selected few, brings, there isno won
der that murder and other heinous of
fences obtained to such an extent last
year in the State as to call for a day of
fasting and prayer on the part of the
clergy thereof. Not only the safest but
the best government is that administered
by the will of the governed. We want
our readers to remember that it is the
Democratic party which is heaping these
wrongs upon the people of our race in
that as well as the other Southern States,
and that that same party has designs of
the same kind to carry out in this State
if they can only win in the election this
year. Don't forget these facts.
