to the battle with the wind and wave.

were no neSj^er Bluff Ledge than two

ingly doubtful how long the Petrel
could last in such a sea, when some
thing loomed up on the unbroken
stretch of ocean - the life-boat,
manned by the crew from the station,
It needed skilful management to
go up^alongside of the Petrel; but,
after frequent attempts Jim was
pulled aboard, drenched to the skin,
and holding the roll in its covering.
"What in creation is this? Are you
wild to start out In such a gale?" was
the first question after the Petrel had
been fastened to the life-boat.

WORK FOR CAROLINAS
Extracts From Address of Clarence
Poe, Editor of The Progressive
: Farmer and Gazette, Raleigh, N.
C., Before the South Carolina Press
Association, Glenn Springs, S. 0.,
June 14, 1910.
Both Carolinas need and must have
a larger proportion of white people,
The whole South, in fact, is still too
sparsely settled. Our eleven South
ern States, excluding Texas, support
only 16,000,000 people of both races,,
and only 10,000,000 white people,
whilp the same arc1, in Europe sup
ports, over 160,000,000 white people.
And it must be remembered that up
to a certain point which we shall not
reach for centuries yet, and other
things being equal, prosperity depends
upon density of population. Popula
tion makes wealth, provided that it
is normally intelligent and efficient.
The Sort of Immigration We Need.
Of eour?, we do not want the low
er-class European immigration. If we
can get immigration from England.
Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Holland,
Sweden, etc.,-the countries whose
blood has gone to make up our vigor
ous American stock-it would be of
great help to us. We are all of us
such immigrants ourselves or descen
dants of such immigrants. From
some countries of Southern and
Eastern Europe, on the other hand,
immigration is of a decidedly lower
order and objectionable because of a
IQW standard of intelligence and effi
On the very same principle, how
ever, immigration of a normal or high
standard of intelligence and efficiency
is desired. Such immigration can be
liad, and ought to be had-in some
measure perhaps from our English,
Scotch, Dutch, and Irish kinsfolk
across the sea-but chiefly from our
Northern and Western States. For
years now hundreds of thousands of
the most enterprising and progressive
farmers in the Middle West have
been going into Canada with its long
hard winters and bitter climate, not
only giving up American citizenship,
but actually paying two to three times
as much for land in that inhospitable
region as land of the same fertility
commands in the South. We ought
to have brought these men to the
South. They know our institutions,
our language, they are industrious,
thrifty, wide-awake, and many of
them are of Southern ancestry who
should naturally cqme back home.
Let's bring them back.
Immigration to Solve the Race
If there were no other reason for
advocating such immigration from
the North and West, I should favor
it as our surest deliverance from our
race problem. The proportion of ne
groes to whites is too large in every
Southern State, and my hope is that
ultimately the tides of migration and
immigration will equalize population
until the proportion of negroes in no
State will exceed 20 per cent. "We
must train the negro;-the more ignor
ant he is the greater the burden on
the South-but at best the process
will be slow, and at present it would
probably not be too much to say that
in considering our whole population,
including our great constructive lead
ers and captains of industry, the
average negro in the Carolinas in
economic worth and efficiency fis only
half as useful as the average white
man. In other words, in rating gen
eral average of efficiency we should
put the Avhite man at 100 and the
negro at 50, so that a county half
white and half negro would have, an
average efficiency of 75, or a handi
cap of 25 per cent as compared with
a county with an exclusive white
population of a normal degree of
, Whether or not the difference is as
much as I have indicated, certain it
is that the larger the proportion of
whites, the higher the average of. ef
ficiency, the more prosperous will be
our every industry, and the better it
will be for every individual citizen,
including the negroes themselves.
Two Ways to Build Up the Carolinas.
There are just two great ways to
build up the Carolinas. First and of
paramount importance is Education
of all our people; and I should only
supplement this by putting more ear
nest emphasis upon practical educa
tion, education that trains for effi
ciency, not education suited to the
great urban centers cf Europe and
the North, but education suited to the
needs of a great, awakening agricul
tural citizenship such as ours is and
And second only to Education, is
3,000,000 Instead of 600,000 White
Now let us start rieht-not by
seeking immigrants from Southern
Europe, but by advertising our re
sources to the thrifty, enterprising
and Progressive farmers of the North
and West-men of our own stock who
now only need an invitation to make
them come. Emerson was right wher
he said that "every man who comes
imo a city with anv purchasf.b'r
talent or skill in him gives to every
man's labor in the city a new worth,"
and if an ignorant negro* slave in the
old davs was worth $1,000. certainly
we may assume that a thrifty and in
telligent white Westerner, bringing
not only himself, but in most cases
substantial accumulations as well
should he worth man" times as much
as an asset to the State.
The last census year North Caro
lina had only 1.200.000 white people
It should have 4.000.000. South Car
M The Farmers !
?lina had less f?an 600,000 whites
when it should have 3,000,006-and
would then be, even with its 800,000)
negroes, only one-third as thiekty
1 settled as ' Massachusetts ! Consider
for a moment how much more in
fluential our papers would be, how
much more important every institu
tion in the State would be, how muck
more varied would be our industries,
how much easier it would be. to get
good roads in counties in Which the
white population is now too small Vi
maintain them, how easv it would be
to do?ble the usefulness of our pub
lic schools, how quickly we should
build railroads in sections which must
otherwise remain dormant and back
ward for long, long, years how import
ant our cities should become and how
much more attractive -would be eoun*
try life in our thickly settled com?
munities, and how much easier it
would be to get telephones and water-?
works and trolley lines and local ll-?
bi aries and all the advantages of
twentieth century rural life !
Let us take as our watchword "Ed%
ucation and Immigration-Both of
the Right Sort."
