The whole race is tiled nnd condemned, and 1 am here to combat the verdict that he ia a moral monster.h ,-----------Mr. Douglass Talks Off the Pint form.Frederick Douglass left town this morn**ing for Washington. He ia not in good health, and thought himself unable to •Und the strain of the convention in Citt* ciunati, which has been called by Blshof Turner. To a Nxwa reporter h« said: 1 aiu very grateful for the way in which thf ■ newspaper* of Indianapolit have treated roe. I have been shown every courtesy,' The morning paper* were at some paint to make a complete report of my speech last night I am sorry | to have to say that I was unintentionally misrepresented. 1 am virtually chargedi with apologizing for crime. Let me deny the charge. Neither 1 nor any other colored man who occupies the same station that I do would shield a guilty man of our race.He should sutler the most condign punish*ment. The only point for w hich I contend is that when a colored man is accused erfj crime, of whatever nature or extent, he should be confronted in a eoun of lavwith hie accusers so that his guilt or iaoo* cence may he established without doubt I •ay thut the horrible crime* which are charged to the colored men of the South arc not confined to the negroes. Public opinion looks upon the negro as an animal that can not control his passion. Let the guilty men be killed—it is a fitting sad iuslpunishment—but let it be done with a show ‘ of law. J do not always doubt the guilt ofi the victims of a lynching party; 1 only doubt the testimony of the mob in regard to the victim's guilt. .WIn speaking of -the future of the negro, Mr. Douglass said; “We, as a rice, must work out our own salvation, but we should be assisted as the Cay cassia n races were assisted in the early days of their elviUaa-, tion. We eau not expect a Messiah to redeem us. We must redeem ourselves. The only bard phase of the problem is that we are not looked upon as individuals, but as a race. If one negro commits a crime ah-horbent to nature,, the whole negro race m the United States Is eon-, damned. If the crime is particularly revolting, and the news of it bos flashed by . wire from one end of the country to thej other, you may see white men in cities fatremote fr.om the scene of the crime, looking askance at the negroes they meet on thf street as it they were vile and contaminated by the action of one of thetf must not be. Ae we gain education end show ourselves fit for the duties of higher citizenship, I hope that, the white oeoplt will condemn white and colored criminal! alike, and alike praise the worthy man. i whatever bis color.Re«ac*4 Itois To Tsm Hants. ;V'For thf ('hrikfinn Vndoamie likAnWMllM sJ
