14. A Bill to Promote Mendicancy: Further Exposition of Its Demoralizing Tendencies (N.p., [1890?]). (24 p.)

Compilation of editorials opposing a bill that would provide federal funds for education, 75% of them in the South. This pamphlet argues that the South is not only able, but willing to support the education of its children on her own. (The bill, introduced by Henry W. Blair of New Hampshire, allowed for segregated schools but adhered to the doctrine of separate but equal. Passage of the bill would have resulted in the use of federal money to fund black schools in the South.)
