26. J. S. Moffat, “The Future of South Africa, II: The Native Races,” Nineteenth Century (June 1900): 890-98.

Essay concerning the status of African natives after the Boer War. The author argues for their inclusion into a democratic process. “We may allow the Boer to persist in regarding black men as a servile race, and keeping them under as such. This line of policy must result in hideous failure. Any race kept in a servile condition must deteriorate, and the process of deterioration will not confine itself to them, but will spread upwards like a foul miasma, poisoning the springs of the whole national life.”
