THE COLOR LINE. j
The Republican and fusion' can-j
didates are telling the negro that
the Democrats are drawing the
color line making a strong point
of it. We desire . to say. to the
negro that drawing the color line
is not a Democratic doing. .Almost
as a unit the negro, .since he was
first given the right of suffrage,
has drawn the color line by voting
the Republican ticket. lie has
therefore drawn the line himself.
No matter what the issue before
the country, whether to the best
interest of the country or whether
to his interest or not he has walked
up to the ballot box and deposited
a Republican ticket. Very few
negroes stopped to think of or
even cared what their ballot might
mean so it was Republican. They
have no right to complain of the
Democrats drawing the color line.
They have done so from the start.
It is not of Democratic origin. It
is a subterfuge, a buga-boo, a tale,
an old Republican scare of the Re
publican speakers to hold the ne
groes together. These speakers
seldom fail in anyxampaign to tell
thp negroes of the color line. The
negroes attention is called to this
The negroes openly and above
board claim that the Republican
party is their party. They publish
this to the world through their
papers. They adhere to the Re
publican party as their party nat
urally. They will hear to nothing
else. Can they then blame the
Democrats for drawing the color
The Democrats have drawn the
color line this year in earnest and
are making the negro the State
issue and if the black man wants
to stop it he will have to divide

Manly, the negro editor of Wil

geously the wives and daughters
of the farmers of North Carolina
Who among the Republicans in
North Carolina will .not say at the
and defied the -fusion critics
by hoisting negro supremacy
eastern North Carolina had
boldened him to this vulgar
rapacious assault upon the virtue
of our poor white women. Even
Judas Thompson had been out
Judased and honest Populists in
the East hung their heads in shame
and humiliation that they we're
even in the smallest measure! re
sponsible for the ' bigotry and
obtrusiveness and slanderous ut
terances of this negro. v
But it remained for Geo.) L.
Tonnoffski, fattenning and waxing
strong from fusion swill, to jcalT
uminate brie upon whom a word of
reproach has never as yet been
cast by a citizen of North Carolina
the Confederate soldier. Since
he returned to his broken home
and shattered fortune more than
thirty years yesxvs ago and buried
his heart aches with the past the
nation has been proud to do him
homage. It remains for the hid
den viper in his breast the expo
nent of negroism to sting and to
strike the first blow.
4 ''The Confederate soldier
played out," were the words
by Tonnoffski, when he desecrated
the dearest thought that has ever
yet obtained with
people. 4 'The Confederate solclier
played out," indeed! And Well
might the point be raised, who. has
supplanted him?' Who MrTon
noffski, has blinded yoifr pride and
reverence for our old heroes if not
your political preceptors or your
political associates? Since when
has it "become the order of things
that the teachings of : Republican-'
ism , and negroism should advise
forgetfulness of our gallant heroes
in gray and . consign them to job-
livion ? For what - reason should
the remaining few of the defenders
of our Southland, whom the Dem
ocratic party "always sought and
delighted to honor, be relegated to
the past? :
Let Mr. Tonnoffski reflect upon
these questions and in the mean
time let every old Confederate
vet ponder well the significance of
these words. Not only the veter
ans but let every man in North
Carolina weigh well the omen
they bring. .
A new state of affairs have been
brought around in this common-
wealth. 120,000 negro voters,
once docile and content to man-
age their own affairs, have come
forward and dictated terms to
one minion wnite men, women
! v .. . i -
and children through the instru
mentality of the Republican party.
They have asserted their mastery
of the situation and political
henchmen . like Tonnoffski-j-a
white man have done their bid-
ding. They have trampled down
old and honored customs, violated
revered traditions and stayed the
progress of a quarter century and
more. They have - exulted at the
recognition of their power and
their white confreres have
submitted slowly but surely
to their terms and so it has
come to pass at last that a white
man in order to gratify the vanity
of his political supporters has Re
pudiated the Confederate soldier
as . "played out thing." ,Wnat
will the veterans of Rowan county,'
particularly those who havV been
led astray by false promises, think
of this tendency? What do those
veterans who have have been hon
est in their support of fusionism
think of the fruit it is bearing?
their i masters as did
soldier has played out."
Let the Confederate soldier re
member. He is not likely to for-
. i ......
get so wanton an insult, lie is
not likely to lose sight of the fact
tnat tne rallying cry oi tne wnue
Republican leaders to the negro
voters is: The Confederate Soldier
lias Played Out.
And his answer to the slander
will be forcibly recorded at the
polls on the jSth day of November
Some newspaper men are terri
ble liars. In writing of a cyclone

the bung hole, changed the day of
