OUR PRESIDENT'S POLICY.
In Appointing Negroes to Office
Over Protests of Whites
In th" Dallas Xi'vs Inst wecl;
a special from Columbia S. C
gn.ve an interview with Governor-
elect I). C. Ileywnrd on the ap-
pointment to olliee of colored re-
publicans which is intere-tini:
Thf governor said:
"1 think President Rooevelt
has made a mistake that will
shake the faith of many people
North and South in his wisdom
and judgment. Misguided and
viewing the situation from hut
one hide he has done much to
disturb that good feeling and
faith in justice that President
McKinley caused to spring in
Southern hearts. Was not the
Southern policy of the martyred
President good enough to con-
tinue? "Mr. Roosevelt thinks we are
prejudiced against the negro and
to cure us he adopts the expedi-
ent of making him more obnox-
ious. To heal antagonism bc-
twci'ii men parties or races he
would inerea'-e th irritation.
To encourage the negro to attain
scholarship and wealth he would
raise him to responsible places
above the whites the whites of
the South who have in their pov-
erty taxed themselves to give the
negro some education ; who
other tilings being equal give
employment to the negro in pre-
ference to wjiites.
"The wliite people of South
Carolina are today educating
more negroes than white children
in the common schools. The
negroes are cared for in alms-
houses hospitals and asylums
and in all this State not one who
is willing to work is out of em-
ployment. None die from want
Kvery opportunity for material
moral and intellectual advance-
ment that the negro ha- had has
been given him by the whites of
"We of the South do not hate
negroes. We have as a people
infinitely kindlier feeling for
negroes among us than is enter-
tained by the whites in tho
Northern and Western States for
the negro who lives among thorn
lint we are opposed strenuously
opposed to our wards but one
generation removed from bond-
age and with the masses little if
at all improved in morals being
given the same rating with us in
tho national Government's books.
"Uecause one negro or ten
negroes in t !ii- State may have
tho capacity to 1111 certain ollices
of the government we can not
realize that the President has the
moral right to choose one of those
negroes as our business represen-
tative; to put him in an ollico the
revenues of which are derived en-
tirely from tho whites; to appoint
him over the protests of live-
sixths of the qualified voters of
the State and the solid delegation
'We may bo prejudiced against
the negro prejudiced against his
holding ollico in the South when
all the business must be transact-
ed with whites have we not just
cause for that prejudice far bet-
ter cause than have the Northern-
ers who support the President's
policy for their prejudice against
the whites of the South? We
bought the negro in legal sale and
we paid for him. That the pur-
chase price went north of Mason
and Dixon's line does not now on-
set our ease. In our battlw for
State's rights we lost and our
slaves were turned loose ignorant
and depondent but friendly.
! "Iy an act which now causes
I many Northern men to blush the
ballot was put into the hand- ot
these -imple people utterly iu-
iiurant of their responsibilities
and carpetbaggers came down to
.manipulate them and breed
.hatred in their hearts for their
best friends The carpetbaggers
were Miccc-ful and a reign of
political debauchery succeeded.
The whites in time regained su-
premacy but the negro had been
effectually turned against his
neighbors of the other race and
for political purposes his antag-
onism has been nourished from
the North by those prejudiced
against the South
"In view of all the circum-
stances where sucli an appoint-
ment is made as that of Dr Crum
we are forced to ask ourselves
whether the President is sincere
in a desire to up'ift the negro by
this method or is perhaps un-
consciously influenced by a pre-
vailing Northern antagonism to
the South an antagonism un-
modified even when the con-
quered South devastated was
preyed upon by tho thieving alien
and the benighted black.
Are our wishes opposed our
feelings disregarded our preju-
dices ignored because we fought
and were fought by the Presi-
dent's party forty years ago?
"When will our opponents let
the war end? We will never ac-
cept their view of the negro from
a distance: nor can we bo so hurd
upon tho negro as is the man
from Massachusetts Ohio or
Maine when he comes to live in
the SoTiin. Wu are not opposed
to the negro holding ollico in
communities whore he represents
tho people tho people who vote
who do business who pay taxes .
If it is good to encourage the
negro to give him ambition by
putting him in high official
places let those who think so
mako room for him. Give him a
chance in Indianapolis lioston
"Wo of the South know that a
negro would not bo appointed to
such an oflico in a Northern State
against tho protests of the people.
We know that despite the largo
negro population in Cuba with
negroes of a higher degree of in-
telligence than the negroes oi
this country a negro Consul Gen-
oral would not bo sent there.
Why? The Cuban whites would
object and while they have none
of our strong reasons for preju-
dice their views are reBpectcd.
For tho same reason negroes are
not sent in diplomatic or consu-
lar capacities to Central or South
"The South and Liberia seem
to lie tho only fields which the
Administration considers open to
negro oflicoholdors. Tho South
is doubtless the only spot on
earth whore business representa-
tives of u business Government
are forced on tho people who pay
the piper against their protests.
Is it wise? Is it just? Is it
friendly? Is it good business?
"As to the Indianola post
master incident 1 am not fully
informed. If the postmaster was
in danger of a mob she should
have been protected. Tim Gov-
ernor of tho State shculd have
had the responsibility put on him
of furnishing that protection.
Mob law is abhorrent; it cannot
be tolerated and tho representa-
tive Southerner as strongly op-
poses such violence as doeB the
best eloment in New England.

taming whether tho Stato author
