The main building at Wilberforce
University buOt by Bishops Payne
and Shorter in 1865, 57 years ago,
burned down on last December 7th.
By request of the Executive Board in
Session at Wilberforce, I was asked
to hire an architect and prepare plans
for rebuilding,- and to have general
charge of the processes of reconstruc
tion, Everything was ready by the
latter part of April, at which time,'
the Executive Board met again, ap
proved the plans, and voted the con
tract to D. W. McGrath & Sons of
Columbus, Ohio, for reconstruction,
at a primary cost of $271,60000. The
changes in extras in the building will
run the colt to $300,000.00. It is to
be a fireproof building, built of brick,
stone, concrete, steel and iron, includ
ing the cellar and fooL The extreme
length is 213J4 fijet, extreme width
165 feet, height 5j stories. The build
ing contains offices; lor the University
Executives, 25 diss rooms for col

Music and Science; Departments, din
ing hall, seating capacity for 1,000,
auditorium, seating capacity 500.
dormitory rooms for 450 girls. Strict
ly modern and sanitary. It will be
the finest, most expensive, and com1
modious college building, built by or
for Negroes in the world. The build
ing is to be finished by the first day
of next June. In it, we expect to
hold ouc next Commencement.
To finance this great enterprise is
the biggest burden, all things consid
ered, that has fallen to our race We
have sow been building daily lor
three months, at a cost of $20,000.00
per month, all labor and material to
this time paid for. The buildisg is
now above first story and pressing
hard in the second floor.

The Trustees of Wilberforce Univer-.
sity coyer the whole hurcb, and
therefote the whole connection consti
tutes the controlling body. Control
and responsibility are correlatives
both morally and economically, and ,,
the exercise of the one predicates tfic
exercise of the other. The assumpr
t'on and exercise of control, while
neglecting the responsibility to sup- '
port, is to be scorned by every manly
man. Control without responsibility
cancels the right of control By in-,
exorable law, the whole church must
help rebuild Wilberforce. Will you
do it? Will you repudiate a, duty?
We, therefore, beg all Bishops,
General Officers, Ministers, and Lay
men, to send in their contributioas at
once, so that the work: on new Shorter

Negro education regardless, of creed
or denomination, will, help us in this
enterprise. Hence, we are begging
and expecting immediate response.
