Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			
190            STATUS OF METHODISM  AND  CHRISTIANITY.

  Attention is first called to Table 1, on this page, showing
the white and colored population of the states under discussion at each
census since 1790, together with the number of colored to each one
hundred thousand white and the percentage of increase, respectively,
of white and colored for the several decades.

  The table summarizes the entire case. In 1890 there were in the
states under discussion 6,996,166 colored inhabitants, and in 1880,
6,142,360. The colored element increased during the decade at the
rate of 13.90 per cent.     The white  population of these states in 1890
numbered  16,868,205,  and  in 1880, 13,530,408.   They  increased
during the decade at the rate of 24.67 per cent, or nearly twice as
rapidly as the colored element.

   In 1880 the proportion of white to persons of color in these states
was in the relation of 100,000 to 45,397.  In 1890 the proportion of
the later class had diminished, being then as 100,000 to 41,475.

  During the past decade the colored race has not held its own
against the white in a region where the climate and conditions are, of
all those which the country affords, the best suited to its development.

  Referring again to this table, it is seen that in but three decades,
that is, from 1800 to 1830, during a part of which time the slave trade
was in progress, has the colored race increased more rapidly than the
white. Since 1830 the white people have steadily increased at a more
