A Heated Senate Discussion on the South ern Question ANDY JOHNSON AND RECONSTRUCTION Butler Mokes an Appeal to the North Oklahoma Bill Passes the House with a Prohibition Public Building Bills WASHINGTON March tho Senate the Committee on Commerce reported a bill to repeal tho law of Congress requiring steamships to carry guns and rockets for casting Hues in case of disaster The object of this was to doaway with tho extortion practices of tho patentees of tho appliances under tho law as it now stands The bill was placed on the Calendar The Senate proceeded to the Calendar and passed bills for public buildings as follows Stockton Mammoth Hot Springs in the Yellowstone National Park Virginia City Tho Salem Tveao All tho foregoing were Senate bills Eustis took the floor aud referred to the statements made by Hoar yesterday ono of them being that in the State of Louisiana and some of the other States there were laws which made it a penal offense for a white man to associate on terms ofequality with a uccro and another to tho effect that thoro was a law which provided for tho sale oil any colored man found for a out of work and that former masters should havo preference In the purchase IIo denied emphatically that there was auy such law in Louisiana and spokeof tho recklessness and destitution of a scnso of responsibility with which the Republican Senator spoke of southern affairs Hoar said ho might might have erred as to tho Stato in which such laws were passed but quoted them substantially from tho laws of Mississippi passed iu 1S05 He said that substantially tho samo law had beou enacted in Louisiana The Educational bill then came up and Blair mado a brief address Ho also road extracts from a speech by President Harri son when a Senator in 1SSO favoring tho bill and said the Piesidcnt held tho samo sentiments today Tho Southern question came up again and Hoar admitted that his statements about tho laws of Louisana were incorrect Sherman asked Eustes whether he did not know that tho Fifteenth Amendment never would have been proposed but for the fact that the laws of the southern States were depriving the negro of tho rights of citizenship Ouster replied that it was his honest con viction that all tho reconstruction measures wore adopted by tho Republican party with the singleidea of Africanizing the South and maintaining political supremacy and characterized it as tho groatest crime ever committed against civilized Sherman then took part in the discussion which necarae a heated political contro versy Ho traced tho course of the recon struction movement and said that at tho close of the war it had not been contem plated to arm the uogro with suffrage but tho laws passed by some of the Southern States were so unjust to the colored people and to the white Republicans in tho South that the people of the North became con vinced that tho object in tho South was to overthrow the results of the war and to deprive the freedmen of all the rights of citizenship When the time camo it was seenthat thoro was no wayto protect the emancipated people except by arm Ing them with tho right of suf frage Congress had reluctantly and slowly but duliberately adopted that remedy as the only ono litted for tho case Bo Sherman had sometimes thought it might possibly have beon better nob to havo adopted tho Fifteenth Amendment confer ring suffrage on tho colored men because that right had been minified and uprooted The result of tha Fifteenth amendment was practically to give tho southern States in croased representation in the House of Representatives and increased power iu tho electoral college it there were anything wrong in the situation of southern affairs tho people of tho South had brought it on themselves There was no feeling of hate in tho North against tho South If equal rights for all people in tho South were scoured thepeople of the North would be satisfied The Fifteenth Amend ment had not turned out as expected because no man had dreamed that such a measure as had been resorted to in tho South would havo been resorted to to deprive the negro of his rights No one had dreamed of Ku Klux Klans and all tho sauago machinery by which that exclusion had been perfected Butler suggested that the recommenda tion measures and the Fifteenth Amend ment wore so much duo to objectional legislation in the tho South as to tho conflict between Andrew Johnson and tho Republi can Congress Sherman replied that the selection of Andrew Johnson a Southern man and a Democrat for tho Vice Presidency was proof of tho generous treatment tho North had shown tho South but Johnson had de serted the Republican party and turned his back upon it when he came into power and Congress tied liis hands aud prevented him from carrying out his policy I understand the Senator from Ohio to admit that the Southern peo ple were not alone responsible but that Andrew his President was more responsible for the enactment of extrcmo measures against the South look upon and viow Johnson as a Southern man and Democrat was your Republican Presi dent and the people of tho South had no other authority to look to after they sur rendered except the executive Southern people had a right to look to Congress as the moving power of the country Sherman went on to say to the Senators on the other side that there is a feeling in the North that not only have the negroes of the South been deprived of votes but that the people of the South now enjoy larger political power than the same num ber of people in the North Let the South obey the constitutional amendments let itgive the negro his vote and permit him to vote as he will I would notcare if thS whole of the negroes would vote the Democratic ticket but this feeling of injustice does prevail in the while youare depriving the colored people their you are exercising undue power in the government The North denies hatred but demands justice and now I say that beyondi and abovo this educational any other pending measure is an act of Congress that will secure to every man in the United States entitled to vote his right to cast a vote and have it counted SYhen ever Congress rises to the dignity of the passing of such a law that will be uniform throughout the TJniteil States affecting Massachusetts and Ohio as well as South every man will Jfeol that it isa just and fair law and that there will bo 120 iurttierground of complaint Congresscannot exerciseany control in the local affairs of the Southern what wo insist upon is that there shall1 law that will protect the right of suffrage and that that law shall be executed with that no man dare expose himself v Butler followed Sherman He spoke or the exclusion of colored men in tho North cru States from iM political offices and saul that on the there is no such dis crimination iu the South This very day and for the past week the nowspapeix ban been rooming with accounts of white men in Oklahoma aud KcpubiUans among them announcing to tho world that if tho ooloroil people dared to assert their right to control tho Territory bv of numbers they would drive Uum out it the point of thcbayoivet He had seen accounts of out on colored in Ohio and Indiana aud yet had not hoard ono syllable of pro test Ho would veil the Senator from Ohio that whenever ho attempted to carry out his thoory of another crusudo upon the South through supervisors and United States Marshals for tho purpose of dominating elections there he would havo firo HI his rear from the men in rho Norrti who had carried their money and their industry into the South Whenever he attempted to reestablish in the South those reconstruc tive governments whieh havo left in their traintho black mark of spoliation disgrace and

the manufacturers will abandon tho use of merino wool to some extent for cheaper carpet wool thus bringing down the price of merino wool The farmers of tue United States and the people generally whose prosperity is de pendent on the success of our agricultural industries are to be congratulated on the face that Major McKInley and those co operating with him on the Committee on Ways and Means have proposed a measure of such immense The proposed duty is an increase of 1 per cent per pound on clothing and combing wools over the present law The Senate bill which passed January 22 1SS9 proposed cents on carpet wool whether washed or unwashed but the rates of the proposed bill of cents 011 unwashed with higher rates on washed and scoured make it much better for wool growers than tho Senate bill besides which the restrictive provisions of Major MoKinleys bill in connection with his administrativeDill addmuch to tho pro tective features as to all wools and in these respects are much better than those found in any bill law We now respectfully urge the friends of protection to American industry all over the country to appeal to their Representatives in Congress to give their
