IT the central idea advanced in

Winn dealing with the negro
iietion dciniKTuta can see no dis
tinction Is'tween social and jsditi
eiil rights. With them the terms
are synonymous ns applied to the
" nigger." " Would you la; willing
your daughter should marry a nig
ger?" is a nut ation which has lscn
asked the writer a hundred times
during the many years be has ud
vocated the right of the colored
slave to his lilierty and his advance
ment to equal jsilitienl privileges
with all other citizen.
The truth is, social equality and
political rights are as distinct ques
tions as tire religion and mnthenust
iei. The ttrst is a sentiment, regu
lated wholly by the tastes, prejudi
ces, and ambitions of those who
make up what is culled human so
ciety, ami there is not, nor can
there la-, any civil law in a free
government to regulate it. It leaves
every man the right to sny w ho may
sit at his table, or who may sleep
under his nx,f
Political rights are those which

mia," as enunciated by Thomas
Jell'erson, and advocated by the wis
est and li st men of every silitical
name in this country for a hundred
years. That this principle has
failed to attain its full fruition we
all know. And we further know
the underlying cause of this fail
tire is thnt the professed disciples
of .Jell'erson couiiosing the greut
democratic party have stood dur
ing tin lust halfivntury right across
the pathway of silitical progress.
The central idea of the republi
can parly is civil lilierty and equal
ity for all liefure the law. The quo
tation," Lilsrty and I.nw La wand
Lilierty one and Indivisible," cov
ers the entire foundation on which
the party rests. All questions of
policy which the jmrty advocates
are correlatives of this.
The republican party does not
seek to legislate on the social prob
lem. It would remove all obstacles
which the oppressor has placed in
the pathway of the negro, and then
leave him, as it leaves all others, to
find his own level to rise or fall
in the social scale as his genius,
ambition, and moral and mentnl
attributes, or the luck of these.may
lead him. This is all tho negro
nsks for himself socially, nnd if loft
to himself he would never be found
seeking the society of the author of
the article ulaivo quoted, or asking
to lodgn in tho sunn bunk with him
Hut how is it with the democratic
party? It favors neither lilierty or
equal laws. For twenty-nintyears,
or since (he outbreak of tho reliel
lion, it has boon mainly n party of
negation. With tho old slave
holding element nt its bead, it has
steadily and unitedly opposed ev
ery effort to advance tho interests of
the country in nnv direction. If it
has taken n strong nrlirnintivo posi
tion on anything it has boon on the
negro question. And that nllir'tiia
tion is that the lute hondmnn, law
or no law, shall have neither po
litical or social rightB. Not content
with depriving hint, by brutal force,
of his right tocitizonship, tho party
by its action says that the colored
man of t ho South shall not rise in the
social settle. It does not leave him,
as does the republican party, to
work out bis own dertiny in this di
rection, but every state in the South
legislates in every possiblo way to
crush down his manhood, nnd the
democratic party everywhere n p.
holds the heinous crime as a part
of its policy. It take political ac
tion against Hod's poor -to reduce
them to lhj lowest ieiile of social
I could enlarge on this, but
enough has ' been said to show tho
difference between the republican
and democratic parties, Tho one
nsks that all citizens, without regard
to color, party ties, or social posi
tion, shall have the right to vote
and have that voU counted. It
nsks this because it is in the lino
of justice and civil liberty that it
should be so, nnd because it come
under the requirement of our polit
Tho other deminds, and thus
fur bus enforced its demand, that
the colored citizen shall have no
rights w hich the w bite man is bound
torosM'ct. The strongest principle
in the democratic party, and tho
one tnfwt t,tetMtly AlM!tAAtt ,
that the negro shall be a pariah.
Kiii'h is the radical difference be
tween the two piirti.
It may lc tlmttlieCoiirier man's,
prejudiced are so strong that he
sees no difference between political
and aocinl rights, as I hnvelried to
present it. Hut let him make the
euse hi own for a moment, ami be
will understand the dillcrene.. at
once. Here all parties desire that
he should vote the democrat ft lio
cause they think he is useful to
thetn in a party sense, and there
publicans because it is his right to
vote, provided he has become a nat
uralized citizen, of which there is
doubt in some quarters. Hut let him
presume on social equality with the
families of some of the very men
who have assisted him with louney,
and whose organ ami meiithpiecn
he is, and he would find at once that
la tween him and them th"re is a
grout gulf fixed that while h is
useful to them in a small way us a
slitienl scavenger, socially he is
not one of them, nor can be.
And u it would Is- in thii cast'
so it is through all the ramifications
of human society among blacks,
whites, mongrels, and nil shades of
color. Socially every man. soon or
late, finds his own level. He is
there in obedience to an unwritten
law, and no ivil enactment can
change bis social status. How silly
tli.ii, tit.w It 1 in t.. t, f r
democrats to claim that liecuuse re
publicans contend for the equality
of till men before the law they
must, to la- consistent, take all
men to their hearts ami homes.
Ictthe man w ho is no more refined
or intelligent than thousands of
native Americans with negro blood
in their veins ecus,, to taunt re
publicans with not graining to
others that which he cannot en
joy ninons the better part ot his
own party. Vimo x.
