The line of cleavage between the white man and the black was distinct ana clear There neither amalgama tion, absorption nor assimilatiou between the races Fi ed Douglas, the most illustn ous living representative of his race (gi eat er, ho though, by Caucasian remf01 ce- ment than by his African blood) had suid to him that when prejudi disappeared the races would become homogeneous He (lid not believe it Such a solutun of the dim culty, he thought, would be imposaib o il possible, most deplcrablc History showed that whjre the white nnd black had coins together during the period of slavei} it had been bv compulsion.
