White and Black labor.

This whole war is a war of white labor against black labor. The Republicans care nothing for the black man; they say themselves they do not, but they want to have white men fill the places now filled by our blacks, and leave the blacks the freedom to starve and die. They want to put their poor white men as servants in the hotels, in the houses, in the factories, in the fields; they want coachmen, draymen, laborers, to be white instead of black. They want to drive out the black women servants from our kitchens and our houses, and to put white women in their places. And in order to accomplish this object, they pretend to be great friends of the negroes, when, in fact, they are the worst enemies of that faithful, useful and inoffensive race.
