In Louisiana, the Negroes count a clear, though not a large, majority of votes, and claim to have a clear majority of members in the Chamber.

By law, a Negro is the White's man's equal; by the railway company he is charged the White man's fare.
Is he allowedies, a curl of scorn on his thin aristocratic lips; a Negro sit among our wives and sisters!
Has he not the legal right?
Such right as rules and articles can give him,yes; but he knows his place a good deal better than the scalawags.
If Kellogg and his crew were gone, we should have no more trouble with the coloured folk.
They know us; we know them.
It was a crime to give them votes; but we could live well enough with coloured voters, if the Federal troops were called away.
