Tillman Foraker Bald What I want to answer is his charge that in hatred and passion tha fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the constitution were forced upon the south and that in this way the north needlessly precipitated upon the south the evils it suffered during the reconstruction period These amend ments if not fully demanded by the war itself were made necessary by the situation created by the seceding states Immediately after the war If they had accepted the fourteenth amendment there would not have been any fifteenth amendment for with the fourteenth amendment accepted and ail the seceding states restored to their places in the government the ratification of the fifteenth amendment by the requisite number of states would have been an Impossibility If therefore there be any fault to find with anybody on account of the fif teenth amendment it rests with these seceding states for they by their re fusal to accept the fourteentih amend ment not only compelled reconstruc tion but precipitated a submission and ratification of the fifteenth amendment They accentuated all this by their treatment of the freedmen It would be difficult to exaggerate the unfriend ly character of the legislation affecting them that was enacted immediately after the war in most of the seceding states This kind of legislation coupled with refusal to accept what were thought to be the generous terms of the fourteenth amendment naturally created a public sentiment in the north that secured the ratification of the fourteenth amendment and led to the fifteenth amendment by which it waa provided that no state should hare the right to deny or abridge the right to vote on account of race color or pre vious condition of SINE PERSONS ARE DROWNED KHTTUS Treakfast table His entire
