Conclusion Dip iiiKo tbe History at the Andrew John sou House Passes the Ok laliorna Bill Opening the Cherokee Outlet to Na tional Educational Rill WASHINGTON Cnrr March Irre pressible southern question broke looa in the senate again yesterday and kept the senatorial oratory going most of the day The feature of the debate was the reference by Hherman to the history of reconstruction to show why the negrjoes had been given the suffrage His remarks were ancient his tory to those who were old enough to read during reconstruction but it is many years sines the matter has been adverted to in tie senate The was precipitated by 3ustis calling Hoar to account for charg ing that there were laws upon the Louisiana statute book which provided for the sale of colored vagrants and making it a penal ferura for a white man to associate on terms of equality srith a negro Hoar owned his mistake regarding Louisiana bu said Mis sissippi had such laws Ha continued and said that had it not been for tho objectiona ble laws passed by sorna of the southern states the government of tboss states would have been remanded in 1867 to those who governed before the war Sherman Given Some Ancient History Sherman asked Eustis whether he did not knciw that the Fifteenth amendment never wo ild have basn proposed but for the fact that laws of the southern states wore depriv ing the negro ot his rights of citizenship Ilustis asserted that all reconstruction oieisures and constitutional amend meats were adopted by the Republican party with the single object of Africauizing the south and maintaining political supremacy and this he characterized as the greatest crime uvcr committed against civilized communi tiei Hhermau then said that the first act that passed for the reconstruction of the southern states had been framed by conservative sen ators such as Reverdy Johnson Trumkull and Fossenden The laws passed by some of the southern states had been so unjust to the colored people and white Republicans in the south that tho people north became con vinced that tbe object in tho soith was to overthrow the results of the war and de prive the freedmon of tthe rights of citizsn ship Suffrage Given with Reluctance Later on congress bad reluctantly armed the uegro with suffrage as the only remedy fitted for the case There had been nu feel ing of passion or hate about if Sherman had sometimes thought it might possibly have been better not to have ronferred auf frage on the colored man because that rasulthnd been nuUiSed and suffrage did not now exist with colored mon wherever it might be valuable to them There was he said no feeling of bate existing in the north against the south and if the equal rights of all people in the south were secured tho peo ple north would be satisfied Negro suffrage had not turned out as hnd been expected because no man had dreamed that such meas ures as bad been resorted to in the south would have been rescrtetl to to deprive the negro of his rights Tho Ohio Senators Remedy Injustica had grown out of the Fifteauth amendment and out of it not only had the negroes been deprived of their votes but the people of the south enjoyed larger political power than tho same number of people of the north and until the southern states give these colored men their rights there would be disquiet and clisconbsuc and a feeuig of injustice Congress hei said could not exer cise any control in the local affairs of the southern states but what he insisted upo n is that there shall be a law that will proiect the right of suffrage and that that law shall be executed with such power that no man dare to eipose himself to its penalties Uutler Draws a Conclusion Butler replying to Sherman said that if the debate had accomplished nothingelse it had shown by tbe statements of the senators from Ohio and Massachusetts that the suf frage had been conferred upon the negro of the south not because he was en titled to it not because he was qualified to exer cise it but because of certain laws passed by some of the southern states immediately after the war He said the south bai been grouud between the uppar and nether mill stones of executive and legislative policy during the Andrew Johnson razime and de clared that there was no discrimination south acainst a man ou account of his color Willing to Give Up the Power He said to the senator from Ohio that any attempt to election law such as he had suggested would bring a fire ou the rear of the Republicans lecause the northern men who had recently invested money south would not stand it Butler in concluding said he would not exchange one hour of good order in the south for all the political power that negro suffrage had given to the south and if he had ttie power tomorrow he would transfer every atomot that political power to the north and wish the north Sod speed in the solution and management of It CONGRESSIONAL DOINGS The House Passes the Oklahoma Dry Synopsis WASHINGTON
