Turn Benjamin Lose.
Looking at the matter from a strictly par-
ty standpoint we would say that the proper
thing for the republican party to do is to
encourage Ben Tillman, of South Carolina,
to continue to turn himself loose. If nec-
esssary it might be well to hire Ben to go
up and down the country with his disloyal
nnd infernal utterances.
Every speech that Ben makes will add
votes to the republican party in the north
and we would suppose would disgust even
some democrats in the south.
That is from a party standpoint, but
from the standpoint of humanity and com-
mon decency he ought to be surpressed.
Here is the position of Tillman, briefly
"The nigger has no rights that the white
man is bound to respect.
"When the nigger is accused of a cjime
the presumption of innocence until he is
j proven guilty in a court of justice does not
1 apply: on the contrary, the presumption is
that he is guilty and should be lynched at
The nigger must be deprived of his con-
j stitutional rights at any cost, and if neces-
sary I, Benjamin Tillman, and my crowd,
will take up our shot-guns and organize a
' rebellion in order that he may be surpressed
I and deprived of his rights, guaranteed him
under the constitution of the United States.
"The nigger should not be educated be-
cause in that event he may get to know as
much as the whites and become as capable
; of exercising his rights. What we want the
nigger for is to act as a servant for us white
men. We don't want him either to become
educated or to acquire property because if
he does either he may become independent
and want to go into business on his own
"It is all right to cheat the nigger. It is
all right to shoot him if he tries to vote. It
is all right to burn him at the stake and we
propose to keep it up."
Now. that is the substance of Tillman's
talk made boldly in a northern state before
a supposed Christian assembly.
The man who will make such a speech,
instead of being in the United States sen-
ate, ought to be working in some southern
prison chain gang, but from a party stand-
point it would be the best thing that £ould
happen to the republican party to keep Ben
going right along from this time until the
next presidential election.—Mail and Breeze.
