Whatever may be the pre
judices the( white citizens of the
Unite.4 States pjayjiave forutb!e
blacks - within our bordera . or
profound the regret they may
.hijy'.t)it jthey are here, c he
fact is there are at this tijpe
something'' over 9,000,000 ne
groes of African decent ; in the
United! Spates of yiom oyer
two millions are meii of" voting
The negro popnlabn injireas
ed from the" U S cencus ' 1790
from 767,68 to 8,840,789. in
i00 the last f pnsua year.
The whites increased from
8,172,000 in 179q to , 690,788
"There is.no. inorease to, the
negroe population hy immigra
tion or from out. side the US.
nowbut prior to the aot of con
gress that, went., into effect, in
1808 aboishing the slave trade
large nil mbers of Africans were
imported jnto the. If S as. slaves
in fact up to 1860, considerable
numbers j of native' Africans
were smuggled into the south
and sold t,here to perpetnal slav
ery. Neither the negroes now
living in (the United States nor
their ancestors immigrate4 Ijere
ot their own Iree will, but are
here because of the slave trade
The forefathers and mothers of
the present negro- population
regretted,' far more bitterly the
cause au,d means , employed to
make them inhabitants of Ameri
oa, than(the most ardent white
man regrets their presence here.
The duty that now falls alike
npon wlfite and black is, not to
oherish Regrets for things done
forty and more years ago, bat to
accept present conditions and to
so act that the grand' purposes
of the constitution of the United
States may be earned . out to
"prov'dj for the General welfare
and secure the blessings of lib
erty" to all.
and also too late to substitute
any one else on the ticket. . .

inado there was consternation

of ft the greatest 'scurryinga
among, republican politicians

stale Conferences- were held
and finally some of the
best lawyers i n .the., state , were
consulted in the hope ot finding
a remedfoVtne Mngdlarefro'r
So far there seems to be no re

tain that litigation would follow
any attempt to place another

some evasive measure by which

MAN VHO DIDN'T REGISTER.
A stpking example of the
danger tliat comes from delsy
in registration is offered by this
republican party in Colifornia
where ijt 'is claimed that party
will lose one electoral vote no
matter iow the ballots are cast.
It is asserted that .KM Smitti
the millionaire borax king who
was placed on the republican
tioket as an elector is not regis-'
tered apd consequently is not
eligible to hold office. -
"Smith is a resident of Ala
meda, ut spends m,uch imeTp
New York," slates the report.
Last suiumer lie was in the east
and failed to return and register
The registers are closed so now
it if to late to correct the error
