REPORT OF OUTRAGES COMMITTED BY WHITES ON BLACK AND BY BLACKS ON WHITES FOR THE MONTH OF MAY 1867 BY LIEUT. F. W. LIEDTKE 43RD INFANTRY A. SUB-ASST. COMR. F. B.
By whom committed: Calhoun Nichols, white. On whom committed: Clara Anderson, colored. Place: Greenville, S. C. Outrage committed: assault & battery. Remarks: Calhoun Nichols, a mere boy, was, May 25.67, quarreling with Clara Anderson, a colored girl, because she would not call him "Mr. Nichols," he, however, calling her "Clara." Both were engaged in cleaning a church in Greenville. Clara Anderson persisted in calling him "Calhoun," whereupon he struck her. I had him arrested and bought before a Magistrate, but in consideration of his youth and the fact that he begged Clara Anderson's pardon, paid her ten dollars damages and the Magistrate's costs, I allowed the case to be dropped, warning him however that he had no right to call other people, not in his employ, by their Christian names and require them to address him as a Master.
In fact, as this situation in Greece, Spain, Italy and beyond has been playing out, a German backed EU fiscal stability treaty has been in the process of being ratified throughout the eurozone. Most recently (May 31st) it was approved by Ireland in a referendum. Greece, Portugal, and Slovenia had previously approved the treaty. At least eight more euro-zone countries would need to ratify it for it to take effect for the full seventeen-member eurozone. Under this treaty, any deficit spending annually beyond .5 percent of GDP would be outlawed. A deficit above .5 percent would trigger a series of interventions and penalties intended to coerce and punish any attempt to go beyond the agreed upon limits. In effect, it is a treaty to outlaw John Maynard Keynes.
