44. “Suffrage Limitations in the South,” Outlook (March 12, 1904): 632-34.

Defense of the restrictive clauses in the constitutions of six Southern states that could be used to restrict the right of African Americans in those states to vote. The author concludes that “It would be well if Northern States were to follow the example which these Southern States have set to them, and were to attach similar limitations to the suffrage; and in all those States the negroes might well appoint a day of thanksgiving for the action which has made it impossible in the future for ignorant, shiftless, and corrupt negroes to misrepresent their race in political action.”
