mlttee on Suffrage.
The people of South Carolina are
intensely interested in the work of the
convention now in session in Colum
bia. It is the eighth constitutional
convention of that Stat, and it is
struggling with the problem of how to
frame a constitution that.will disfran
chise ignorant negroes without dis
franchising ignorant whites. The ne
grwM liave a tremendous voting ma-,
Jority in that htate over the whites
and the latter claim to want a consti
tutional provision by which the mi
nority of white voters tan legally con
trol the Htate government. The com
mittee on suffrage has reported a plan
for consideration. It is as follows :
"Residence in the State for two years
in the county one year, in the election
district in which he offers to vote four
mounts, and ine payment of poll-tax,
six months before the election; pro
vided, however, that minister of the
gospel, in. charge of an organized
church, shall be entitled to vote after
six months' residence in the State, if
"The person applying for registra
tion must be able to read and write
any section in this Constitution, or
must show that he owns and pays taxes
on $:t00 worth of property in this
State; provided that at the tlrst regis
tration under this Constitution, and
up to January 1, 1898, all male persons
of voting age, who can read a clause
in the Constitution, or understand and
explain it when read to them by the
registration olllcer, shall be eligible to
register and become electors. A sepa
rate record of every illiterate person
thus registered sworn to by the regis
tration ollicer, shall be filed, one copy
with the clerk of court, and one in the
office of the Secretary of State on or
before January 1, 185)8, and such per

some disqualifying crime.
"Any person who shall app!y for

otherwise qualified, may be registered;
provided he can both read and write
any section of this Constitution, or
can show that he owns and has paid
taxes duriug the previous year on
property in this State assessed at $300
Among other matters of interest
which have come up is the question of
divorce. On October 1st the conven
tion, after a hard fight, by a vote of 80
to 4'J, adopted a section of the Consti
tution forbidding the granting of di
vorces for any cause whatever, and not
allowing recognition of divorces in

rule were applied on the other side,
and white men who intuited or de

likewise, he feared this convention

This thrust was greeted with a gen

Section 34 reads :
"The marriage of a white person
with a negro or mulatto, or a person
with one-eighth or more of negro
blood, shall b unlawful and void."
Ex-Congressman Robert Smalls, a
colored delegate, proposed an amend
ment adding after the word "void," the
words, "and any white person who
lives and cohabits with a negro, or
mulatto, or person who shall have one
eighth or more of negro blood, shall
be disqualified from holding any office
of emolument or trust in this State,
and the offspring of any such living
or cohabitation shall bear the name of
the father, and shall be entitled to in
herit and acquire property the same as
if they were legitimate."
This was the subject of a hot and,
at times, amusing and slightly sala
Wigg, a colored delegate from Beau
fort, brought up the marriage issue.
In exultant tones, which rang through
the house, he declared that for once
"the coons had the dogs up the tree."
Said he :
"We have asked the convention to be
logical in their opposition to us. You
have reported a section aiming at the
negro for no other purpose than to hu
miliate and insult us. We accept it
and ask in return that as you seem
very anxious to keep tbe races separate
and make it unlawful for a negro and
a white person to enter into the holy
bonds of matrimony, that you will at
least give us protection for our girls,
and punish the white men who seek to
lead them from the paths of virtue.
But, gentlemen, I would have you un
derstand that I am not opposed to a
white person or a colored person enter
ing into the bonds of matrimony if
they desire. I believe in the good old
doctrine that to the pure all things are

Ex-Congressman Johnstone amended
the original section by making it read
to forbid marriage between a white
person and any person having any ne
trm hlood instead of "one eisth or more
negro blood," as it originally was.
Ex-Congressman Tillman tried hard
to have this reconsidered, arguing that
when a negro became fifteen-sixteenths
white he or she should be allowed to
intermarry with the pure white, that
the progeny of the union might be
white people, instead of forcing the so
nearly emancipated citizen to breed
back with African descendants and in
crease the negro population.
Senator Tillman shouted to Mr. John

into this section than there is in all the

He explained tbis by saying that in
certain Darts of the State there are
families of people known to have negro
hruu in their veins who are received
and treated as white people, and thor

Miller, a colored delegate from Beau
fort who is an octoroon, protested bit
terly against discrimination in favor
of the descendants who had abandoned
and deteriorated their race, and de
manded that his ohildren should have
all privileges given by law to others
with African blood in their veins.

It is an open fact that the people of
America have always felt friendly to
Cuba, and in the various efforts she has
made to free herself she has always
had the sympathy of the American
people. But the relations existing be
tween this country and Spain have
been such as would make it a violation
of international law and agreement
for our people to give them active sup
port. It seems now that a sentiment
is spreading which will look to some
movement to do away with those re
strictions to, at least, the extent of an
otlicial recognition of the right of
Cuba to fight for her independence.
This is the first step to take. Just now
the Cubans are regarded as rebels
against their government, without the
right to try to shake off the yoke of
Spain. If they should be whipped
they would always be called rebels,
iranors, anarchists, Vc, to the cause
of the Spanish government. But if
they win, they will, in a short time, be
called patriots, heroes, noble men who
shed their blood for liberty, just as the
American people speak of the patriots
who won the liberty of this country in
the revolutionary war. If this country
should recognize the rigbt of Cubans
to tight, then they would become "bel
ligerents" instead of rebels, and would
have the right to openly purchase
arms and ammunition which right
they do not have now.
When the Atlanta Exposition was
opened, Judge Emory Speer, who made
the opening address referred to the
fact that Cuba was not represented
there in consequence of the light they
were making for independence and
"I will not say, sir, that they will
succeed that rests with heaven but
for myself, if I should hear to-morrow
that their last phalanx had sunk be
neath the Spanish sword, their last
city had gone down into ashes and
that naught remained but the wide
melancholy waste where Cuba once
was, 1 should reflect with the most,
heartfelt satisfaction that I have asked
in the name of seventy million of free
men that you would give them at least
the cheeri ug of one friendly voice."
This sentiment was wildly and en
thusiastically applauded, and echoes
to it are coming from every where.
Last week there was tremendous dem
onstration in Chicago on Monday. It
was.au enormous outpouringof Ameri
cans who sympathize with the strug
gle of the Cubans to secure their inde
pendence. The reports say that there
could scarcely have been more enthu
siasm had the monster meeting taken
place in Cuba.
Many of the governors of the va
rious States have been interviewed
and express themselves as being un
qualifiedly in favor in sympathy with
Cuba and of annexing her to the Uni
The attitude of President Cleveland
is iust what might be expected from a
chump or coward. It is substantially
this : that if it appears that Spain can
not put down the "rebellion " the Uni
ted States will recognize the Cubans
as belligerents. Such a brilliant, liberty-loving
(?) idea as this could only
come from a head full of mush.
In a speech at the Chicago meeting
Mayor Swift expressed the pure Amer
can sentiment when he said :
"Are we to wait until the process of
subjugation and extermination is com
plete and every patriot has been given
his passport to a better land and their
murderers run riot where their pres
ence is known no more. No! Now is
the time! I would be in favor myself
of raising an army to help these peo
ple to win their independence and
plant the flag of Cuba on their shores.
1 do not want annexation. I want
Cuba to have her independence."
The Atlanta Constitution is also
purely American when it says:
"Here are a number of patriotic men
in Cuba struggling to free themselves
from the tyrannical yoke in order that
thev mav have self-government, iney
are righting courageously lor ineir po
litical freedom. Their case id parallel
to that of the Americans who, few in
numbers and feeble in resources, in
augurated a revolution against the
British crown. Were they entitled to
belligerent rights only when they had
demonstrated"! hat ;reat Britain could
not conquer llieiu?'
The sympathy of the American peo
ple is strongly in favor of the Cuban
patriots, as it ougm io oe. xen our

CAN'T FIGHT IN TEXAS.
The Leg-talature Enacts a Law Preventing
Prize Fights In That State.
The two thugs who wanted to have a
slugging match in Texas, under the
name of a prize fight, will not be al
lowed to see which is the biggest thug
in that State. Gov. Cullberson called
a special session of the legislature to
pass a law to prevent it. In his call
the Governor said :
"The public interests require that
this exhibition, especially should be
suppressed. Discountenanced by Mex
ico and the territories, outlawed and
driven from every State.it is proposed
to assemble a horde of ruffians and
gamblers, and offer here this command

of the people revolt, and your prompt
and resolute action will spare them

do another thing. It will recall to the

people, the wholesome and assuring

Dallas, Texas, wanted the fight to come
off there, giving as their reasons that
it would be worth big money to the
city. They used every influence they
could command io induce the mem

with the slugging. On the other hand
the Pastor's Association called a
special prayer meeting to. pray for
the success of Gov. Cullberson's call
upon the legislature to pass a law pro
hibiting the fight.
The legislature was not in session
more than three hours before it en
acted a law which absolutely prohibits
all such occurrences as prize fights in

The Caucasian presents below a
recital of two incidents, which,
while they may not be alto
gether characteristic of the sections
in which they occurred, are more
nearly so than anything else which
might be reported of or applied to
the different sections.
Following them is an interesting
eoinmunieation from an ex-slave
who now lives in Pender, county.

AN OLD ABOLITIONIST'S OPINIO.
Tbe New York correspondent ofi
tue v-uarioiie uoserver says:
Mr. Thome is editor of tbe Globe
Quarterly Review, whih is publish
ed in this city. Mr. Thorne was once
an Aboiitiomst. But here is what
he has to say now in his mag
azine about the Afro-American:
"The negio above all the Southern
negro will not work except under
the lash. For the last twenty years
he has been a loafer, a thief and an
immoral fungus upon the fair life
of our Southern lands." And what
does Mr. Thorne propose under
the circumstances! Re-enslavement
orexpulson! He says: "The negro
must be made to work or go; noth
ing but some sort of re-enslavement
can make him work, therefore he i
. v... i j - . i : : 1
uiuei if-euoiavfu or uriven iromibeinir true
iue mnu. is mere manuesiea a debts and
disposition on tbe part of tbe North
ern press to "jump on" Mr. Thorne
for this utterance? Not much. But
suppose a prominent Southern edi
tor had said itf However, no prom
inent Southern editor would say it.
The ex-Abolitionist's intemperate
language is another indication that
more the Yankee learns and sees of
the negro tbe less he thiuks of him.
He still sheds tears when the ne
gro is lynched in the South, but he
ferent. Bat their hard carniors for
two and a half centuries were i a vest
ed in yrfrty, and the result of
the war rendered thtro bankrupt
with nothing to pay tbe ex-slave for
his labor, therefore both have lived
in poverty together.
If the government had paid tve.
thirds the value of all the negro
staves set at liberty, it would have
left a capital in the hands of tbe
slave owner to par rood wares for
Iall time to come, and the old darkey
would have' made enough to buy a
good comfortable home.
The pride of the negro duriag slav
ery consisted to a considerable extent
in tbe cash value at which be was
held. cor instance, if he would
bring fifteen hundred or two thou
sand dollars, be considered himself
of more importance than his fellow
who would not bring a thousand on
the block; end the idea of the gov
ernment taking us away without
paying anything look f eheip and
destroys that old pride and leaves
no impetu to build anew on.
I hold that ignorance and idleness
constitute the cradle of corruption
and lawlessness in which all crimes
are rocked, consequently I say our
government is responsible for tbe
present state or thioes existing
amongst the negro population. This
will it pay its slavery
remove tbe stigma that
rests upon all who do not pay their
debt? It would enable the old slave
'owner to extend their accustomed
I liberality to ns who toiled for them
1 in the days of our youth. There re
' but few of us left who were held in
bondage; and will the greatest gov
eminent under the sun decree that

odd years, hopintr that tbe mul

more irequent as the negro popula- ! All our hopes are blighted and oui
tion in the North increases.
A Southern Man's Aclloo
The following communication
printed in Monday's edition of the
New York Sun tells its own story:
"To the editor of the Sun Sir: I
was an eye-witness, the other day,
to a pretty incident which occurred
on the horse, car which plies between
the station at Bartow-on-the-Sound
and City Island. Tbe car. small
and inadequate, after the fashion of
cars generally, was crowded to its
utmost capacity, when a poorly
dressed colored woman, carrying a
heavy infant, made an effectual ef
fectual effort to secure a foot-hold
on the rear platform.
"On the inside sat a gentleman.
He noticed the look of dissappoiot
ment which swept over the wrinkled,
black face as the baby-burdened ne
gress said: 'I guess I'll hafter wait
for the next car.'
" ' Waitipg for next car' meant the
loss of an hour to her. The gentle
man arose, and calling her back,
relinquished his own seat with a
"For which be was rewarded by a
most earnest look of thanks and 'I
does sholy thank you, sir.'
"I was interested enough in the in
cident to question the gentleman,
and was not a little surprised to find
that he was a Southern, man and an
old slave owner.
"The kindly impnlse to assist this
black woman was in him as a mat
ter of course, and but a piece of the
life-k'ng ;. friendliness existing be-
patriotism i9 gone, and we have
been thinking strongly of late that
it will be best for us in the future
to vote for the party that is best eal

Charlotte and Liberty Bell.
Charlotte Observer. I
Thanks to the efforts of Senator Ilut
ler, Liberty Hell is to stop at Charlotte
and Greensboro, ad two of the most
historic points of North Carolina Kev-
olutionary history, when it starts back
from Atlanta. The programme of the
return of the bell to Philadelphia has
not yet been arranged, but is it not
time that the citizens of these two
towns were bestirring themselves and
arranging to give the bell a reception
worthy of its immortal history and all
that it represents? We respectfully
suggest to his honor, the mayor, and
the honorable board of aldermen, to
take the initiatory in this important
matter in due time, and see that Char
lotte maintains her reputation for hos
pitality and patriotism in honoring
this noble relic of days when our lib
erty was begining to be wrought out.
1 he military companies, the Charlotte
Military Institute cadets, the secret
orders of tbe city, ought to be in the
line of the procession on the day tbe
bell comes, and we bespeak a half-holiday
for all the school children, since
they can learn no more useful lessons
than that taught by Liberty Bell. Let
not Charlotte, tbe "Hornet's Nest" tbat
Cornwallis dreaded, fail to render
proper homage to Liberty Bell.
