NORTH CABOLINA EXODCSTERS.
We really feei very sorry for those
North Carolina negroes who have re
cently gone oft on a wild goose chase in
the direction of Indiana. It may be
said by a very few that they deserve no
better than disappointment and suffer
ing fortheir folly, but we are not of
that number, and there are few South
ern people! whose sympathies will not
go out to them after reading the follow
ing special, of the 10th, from Washing
ton, to the Atlanta Constitution:
The North Carolina negroes who are
here en route to Indiana, and too desti
tute to proceed further or get back
home, are the most pitiable objects I
have looked upon in years. They are
housed in a church and live upon the
refuse scraps from the tables of the
neighborhood. A meagre subscription
iu the churches on Sunday last has
about sufficed to give them a good
square day's rations all around. They
have gotten heartily sick of emigration
before they struck the big road to the
place they started for.
There is very little doubt that the
primary object of those who planned
this whole exodus business was of a
political character. It was thus hoped
to reduce the population of the South
and thus decrease its representation in
Congress after the next census, and
later it has been proposed to run these
negroes into Indiana for the purpose of
turning the political scale in that State.
The negroes fell easy victims to the
schemers by reason of the fact that they
are visionary in their ideas to an almost
incredible degree, but, led off by politi
cians, or by their own too easily aroused
enthusiasm, they are in any event to be
The story told in the extract above is
but of a piece with the history of this
whole exodus movement. On the way
to Indiana, there, and on the return,
the North Carolina negroes have suffer
ed as did their brethren who set out
last winter from Louisiana and Missis
sippi for Kansas, and for the sake of
the negroes it is to be hoped that this
season will witness the last of this
ill-ti med fever. It were useless to argue
to Northern people that we of the South
look at this matter from any other than
a selfish standpoint, and when we say
that we are regretful to see the negroes
go off after these wild schemes, noth
ing else will be thought of than that we
desire to keep them for their services
It is of no use to remind them that the
negroes who are leaving North Caro
lina are all from the second congres
sional district, where there is a colored
majority of about 8,000, and therefore
an excess of colored labor, as labor, and
that the same fact in regard to excess
of colored labor is also true of Louisia
na and Mississippi; but as to the
charges that the negroes are leaving
because they are defrauded and beaten
and killed by the whites, it is
worth while to hear Maj. W. A.
Smith, Republican, ex-member of
Congress from this State, and Republi
can candidate for Lieutenant-Governor
at the last election. In reply to the
question of a reporter of the( Washing
ton Post, as to whether or no the ne
,. grdes re badly treated in this State,
Maj. Smith said, "There is not a word
of truth in the charge."
"You are satisfied, then, that they are
"That is all stuff. They are no worse
treated than the whites. If they are
genteel no one interferes with them."
"And regarding their rights T
"Thev are never disturbed. They
vote whenever they please, and Jiave
equal rights with the whites every
where. North Carolina is not a land of
bondage." . . . ..
"09 thf whole, you say they are well
treated? 7 f 4 ' i
"Of coarse there is some natural pre
judice, . but they are comparatively bet
ter .treated, there than in any other
Southern State. It is a source of com
plaint by the poorer whites that there

not necessary; to pass it over in silence

"My acquaintance and friendship
with Mr. Tilden began early, and since
its inception I have been unswerving
in my fidelity to the man."
"You are, then, his earnest friend?"
"Yes, sir; and I firmly believe that an
enormous crime was committed when
he was prevented from occupying the
position to which he had been elected." s
"Then you are for the re-nominatiori

"Coupling fidelity to the man and my

"Who will elect the next President ?"

The New York ladies are again in

addition to signing formal pledges to
use their influence every way against
it, there will be a series of conferences
this week, with a view of bringing
about some kind oi organization, with
a view of making their work more ef
fective. They have no desire to court
publicity, however, and their proceed
ings, consequently, will not be herald
ed in the newspapers. Thev believe
that work of this character, to be worth
anything, should be, as far as possible,
quiet work. Many representative fam

The Trial of the Utes.
Tne Secretary oi tne interior has re
sponded to the proposition of Chief
Ouray to surrender the Indians engag
ed in the White River massacre on con
dition that they be tried in Washington,
by conceding "a fair trial by a mili
tary commission outside the limits of
Colorado and New -Mexico." A trial
in Washington of course was out of the
question, and while the Secretary's
decision may oe regarded as a com
promise, it is not necessarily a surren
der to the enemy. The future status
of the Ute nation is mixed ' up with
this massacre and all that pertains to it,
and justice tempered with diplomacy
may have a good deal to do 4with the
action of the department.

from Colorado. Allison stated that ow
ing to the fact that the Utes would be
in Washington during the recess, it was
important that the resolution be passed.
Cockrell objected to its present consid
eration. If there were any provision in
it allowing the removal of the Indians to
Indian Territory, he gave notice that
there would; be bitter opposition to it.

suitable place not in Indian Territory.

ted with any other association, bank or
banker, and which is subject to taxation
in such association. The bill also pro
poses to exempt from taxation deposits

and savings fund institutions, except in
cases where the deposit to the credit of
one person, firm or corporation exceeds
$2,000. In such case the excess above
that amount is to be liable to tax.
