Mnrriujjo reulat ions, like nil other
rules of the I'omnion law, jjreu out of
limn established customs that Unclish
people haxe observed from that tune
wheieof the memory of man runneth to
the contrary. The li.ved custom of Kiik
land was one hiisliaml, one wife, one
family. The usaie of centuries became
the common law, ami the common law
U'canie America's heritam. The Afri
inn has no such heritage; theirs was
iiiariiane liy capture or purchase, at the
"ill of the man customs that formed
their laws becoming the xery warp and
woof of their blood. What is bred in .
the bone must endure for centuries in
The principle is this: Law followed
. tistonis; it did not cieate customs. And
the iii'jjro can not be forced to reverse
this tradition by adopting an alien ens
torn pursuant to the white man's law.
Dixorces haxe become so numerous in
the south that some states require the
"hancellors to keep records showing
whether the parties are white or black.
This is for the information of posterity,
who niijjht otherwise infer that their
ancestors paid little heed to the mar
riage tie. As a matter of fact, dixorces
are uncommon anions the white people
of the south. The xvritten law for
white and black is literally the same;
yet, there is an elasticity of enforce
ment, according to their variant mode of
If a prominent white man should leave
wife and babies to shift for themselves
ami take up with an nihility around the
corner, n xhite grand jury composed of
his friends ami neighbors would promptly
indict him; a white petit jury xxould eon
ict, and a white judge sentence him
to the penitent iarv. Hut the same grand
jury would refuse to indict a negro
bigamist, and the same jury xxould not
find him guilty.
In those cases xvhere negroes are in
dieted for bigamy it hi generally because
Mime other negro has "got a prejudy
, agin him" and prosecutes for revenge.
'This dexelops upon the trial, and the
jury prumptly nequits. On the name
'state of facts, a white man xvould per
1 Imps be convicted.
The southern judge xvith a sympa
thetic comprehension of his people, linds
great difficulty in fixing the duration of
a term in the penitentiary. lie feels that
the white man, being better informed
than the negro, should be more severely
dealt xvith. Hut, to the xxhito man, a
penitentiary sentence may in itself be a
disgrace xvorse than death. The xvliite
convict wears forever the stripes of his
degradation, and can rarely live in the
community from xvhich he was convicted.
Hut the returning negro convict may re
ceive an ovation nnd become a distin
,'iiished man. The blind goddess knows
these things; she always peers through
her bandage to see whether tho culprit
be xxhito or black.
