Beginnings of Secession Movement in Texas
"We regard any effort by the Black Republican party to disturb
the happily existing subordinate condition of the negro race
in the South as violative of the organic act guaranteeing the
supremacy of the white race, and any political action which pro-
poses to invest negroes with social and political equality with the
white race, as an infraction of those wise and wholesome dis-
tinctions of nature which as testified by all experience were es-
tablished to insure the prosperity and happiness of each race.""
That the leaders of the secession movement had become intol-
erant of any opposition that might tend to block their progress,
was shown here also in the expulsion of W. W. Leland, of Karnes
County, who was charged with entertaining abolition sentiments."

"BAccording to the Galveston correspondent to the Gazette, Mr. Leland
professed to have recanted, but the testimony of several men who had
observed his movements showed the contrary. According to the same cor-
respondent, "It was a remarkable instance of audacity and, considering
all things, his treatment was exceedingly humane."-State Gazette, April
