William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 1, Chapter 34: the three races. (search)
cond term, and needed Southern votes. A gang of dollar-hunters swarmed into Texas, not to settle in the country, but to eat it up; fellows having no stake in the soil, no knowledge of the people, no concern with planting towns, no interest in promoting order. Backed by Federal officers, they organized Black clubs, and convened private meetings of scalawags. Seizing our electoral lists, they put in names and struck out names, according to their secret orders, till the Negroes had majorities of votes in hamlets where the coloured people were not more than two in five. We chafed, you may be sure, and have no wish to see that game played over again at our expense. If we divide, we may have peace; if not, who knows where we shall stand? These Negroes want to rule and reign once more. Do you suppose that men of English blood will stand that sort of thing? We Texans were the last to cave in; we'll be the first to head out. You bet? If Phil Sheridan comes to Austin — we'll divide.

plies, 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. You have no fear of their majorities? No, ,none; unless those majorities are guided by a military chief. The thing we have to execrate is Caesarism — that government by the sword, which takes no heed of liberal principles. For what purpose has General Sheridan been sent to New Orleans? After a moment's pause, during which I make no answer-having none to make-he adds: Who knows whether we shall not find the city under martial law, the side walks running blood, the public offices on fire?
