Shall the white race intermarry with the negro or shall the blacks be permitted to rule the Southern states in which they are nu merous? These startling alternatives suggested as solutions of the negro ques tion by Professor Zueblin, of the Univer sity of Chicago, in an address delivered at the chapel exercises. School of Educa tion, today, have caused a profound dif ference of opinion at the Midday School. "Intermarriage or segregation are the only possible remedies for the race ques tion," said Professor Zueblin. "Either give the negroes the right to rule in the districts where they are most numerous, or break down the barriers of race by In termarriage. "Take Mississippi or South Carolina, for instance. Let the black men rule these states. That does not necessarily mean that all the white men must be driven out, but that the black men. who are In the numerical majority, must be given the power to which their votes entitle them. "By segregation, I do not mean the placing of the colored race in a place where no white man can Intrude, but I mean to aHow the negro to have a voice In the settlement of affairs. The negro should have something to say abont the government that rules over him." NOT COMING TO PORTLAND Harrlman Expected to Take Train at Shantko for the East. KLAMATH FALLS, Or., Aug. 26.
