, Whnt n UoviTiior Is lining In North
North Carolina has hcen the very
citadel of illiteracy ami educational
inefficiency; in a recent scientific
study of education she was placed
with the lowest expenditure per
capita for schools, and the lowest
productive power per capita. The
Governor of the State has been pro
claiming to hi-; people, from the
tide-water regions to the mountain
fastnesses, that theirs Is the poor
est State in the Union in dollars
and cents, and the most illiterate

part in the Civil War is necessary
to understand her subsequent edu
cational history. Attendance upon
a recent State reunion of Confeder
ate Veterans at Greensboro' taught
a little of how irreat had been her
Hon. liroken and aged men, the
shadow of their former selves and
of the armies in which they served,
I wore in their hats a "brag leather"

recited: "First nt Bethel, Fore-

mattox." North Carolina, it further
saiu, lurmsiieu largely 111 excess 01
her proportion of the Confederate
army; from a war population of
141,000 she sent to the field 127,
1 000, and of these 40,000 were lost.
I But the loss of men was not all;
infinitely greater were the wasted
I wealth and crushed spirits of a peo
iple proud and brave. When the
war was over, the special fund for
the support of schools was gone,
and the school-houses were desert
ed. The work of Calvin Wiley,
former State Superintendent of
Schools, closed with Sherman's oc
cupation of Raleigh. ToShcrniau
war meant hell; to North Carolina
it meant illiteracy.
When the war closed, the Uni
versity of North Carolina was with
out occupation. School organiza
tion and school support had disap
peared. Hopeless indeed was the
outlook; material needs were con
sidered first. It was ten years be
fore the State University reopened
her doors, but at once she began to
work mightily for the educational
renaissance of the State.
Down to 1900 the progress was
slight. A new qualification for
electors was to be fixed in that year,
and the man for the occasion was
the standard-bearer of the majority
party, Charles B. Aycock. "In
telligence" was the watchword of
the campaign; a provision before
the people was that on one, white
or black, coming of age after 1908,
should be allowed to vote unless he
could read and write. "Adopt this
provision," said Aycock, "and if I
am elected Governor, it will be my
chief aim to give every child in
North Carolina the opportunities
for an education." The wisdom of
universal education was most con
vincingly presented, and partisan
issues were larcely ignored. "If
yon do not want more attention to
education," said the frank and
fearless candidate, "dont vote for
Gov. Aycock boldly declared
North Carolina to be the poorest
State in the Union, and the most il
literate save one. "God bless
South Carolina!" said he in a recent
speech; "she has got us into a
good deal of trouble, but she saves
us the ignominy of being the most
illiterate of States." Next the

. poor? Is it becattSQ you are lazy?
'ui tmii n, n lnnii It! lfr lnnn tiDn
lawless? Yes, you are lawless; but
1 you are neither more lazy nor more
lawless than your neighbors. North
Carolina is poor because she is illi
terate. Massachusetts is rich, so
rich that it sounds like a dream;
but Massachusetts has furnished
splendid educational opportunities.
The trouble with North Carolina
has been that we have too long de-
j peuded upon the education of the
' few. In our widely separated com
1 muuities it has been and is difficult
to bring education within the reach
of all; but the future welfare of the
State depends upon this being done. ' '
The speaker devoted luinselt to

a State can he adequately measured
by the average intelligence of its
people, dwelling on this as it affects
both political and industrial life.
His illustrations were most' pointed
and convincing. "When you buy
manufactured articles," said he,
"you buy them from Massachusetts,
and you pay for labor worth four
dollars a day; but you pay in the
products of your own labor, which
is worth fifty cents a day. Now,
what does-this mean? Why, I hat
you must give -eight days of your
labor for one day of that 0 the
men in Massachusetts. This is be
cause Massachusetts has taught her
people to work, -and North Caro
lina has not." "Not that I urge a
mere increase in wages," he con
tinued; "doubling the wages of the
people of North Carolina would not
double our wealth; what we need
is an increase in the efficiency of
our workers. We need the appli
cation of intelligence to our work.
In the Patent Office at Washington
there is one patent for every 900
citizens in th; United States at
large, but there is but one for every
24,000 in North Carolina." Edu
cation was found to be knowing
and doing something, and the man
who knows and does the things
that the times demand was declared
to be something.
After the orator was thoroughly
en rapporj with his audience, and
his sentiments had been again and
again applauded, he concluded a
brilliant period with the statement,
"Yes, and I believe in the education
of niggers!" This was. uttered
with measured deliberation and in
tense feeling. The audience was
awed. The speak r paused for the
effect of what he had said, and,
noting disapproval, he added: "I
perceive that I have created a gulf
between myself and my audience;
but, my fellow citizens, you believe
in the education of niggers!" The
mountaineer admires courage, and
probably nothing but the Gover
nor's fearlessness saved him from
"You believe in the education of
t mule; he isn't worth much until
you break him; he must be edu
cated to work; he will bring no re
turn and be a source of expense
until he is trained. You take your
setter pup or your foxhound and
school him; he would do more
harm than good until he is edu
cated. Now," added the Governor,
"I think more of a nigger than I
do of a mule or a dog, and the rea
sons for educating a mule or a dog
hold to a greater degree for educat
ing a nigger.- Intelligence and
trained skill of our black men are
necessary," he continued, "for the
material welfare and political se
curity of our State." This was
supplemented by a discussion of
true and false education1, illumining
and convincing. A powerful plea
was entered for education of hand
and mind, of white and black. The
education that North Carolina
needs, it was said, is that which
shall train men to keep contracts
inviolate, and which shall lead them
into, not away from, work.
The logic of the speech was con
vincing, the earnestness of the
speaker was irresistible, the res-1
ponse of the audience was spontan- i
eotis. Charles B. Aycock and those I
he modestly represents are rehabili
tating a State; they are building j
the broad foundations of universal
education for the superstructure of
North Carolina's political and eco-
nomic future. Progress in recent
years has been mark.ed; already
North Carolina can give a new ac-1
count ol herself. The per capita '
expenditure on education increased
from sixteen cents in 1870 to fifty-,
one cents in 1900, while the aver-
age earning power of the people
more than doubled in the decade '
ending 1900; but this is only the
beginning. North Carolina's
achievement is a light to lighten
other States, as well as her own
