Wednesday afternoon of thls -week the
great "Conference for Education ln tlie
South" will begin at the Academy of
Muslc. ln thia city.
The occaslon Is so great in Its Import
ance #nd so far-reaching In its resuits
as to attract to Rlchmond at thls time
the most dlstlngutshed large company
of cltizens of the Unlted States that
has ever visited the city, Not only do
they come frorn tho North, but frorn the
South and the Wcst. They come, glvlng
thoir tlme and moncy to dlscusa ques
tlons of genera), pouular education, and
above all to arouse'tlie people "of the
whole country to a fuller reallzatlon of
the necessity for populnr education as tho
remedy for tu thrtusand evils, presont
and promlnent ln American clvilizatlon,
and a solution of many problems that
for years havo beset and baft'lcd enlight
Northern people who love the whole
country, who havo forgotten two pas
slons, which engendered and were enguld
ed by the war between the States, baye
undertaken to help the South help her
No grander spectaclo has been before
tho eyes of all natlona than the effort the
South has been maklng slnce the dovas
tatlon of the war to recover the ground
lost then In wealth and the general condi
tion of her peoplo, The undertnking was
onormous. The South's resourcea were
exhausted, all the people wero poor, prac
tlcally, and they wero hampered by ne
gro Huffrage. Two problems presonted
thomselves at once, how to bring about
those'general condltlons which foster the
hoalthy development of the country's rp
sources and how to educato her chlldren.
Prom the gloomy day of Appomattox
down to the present, she has been striv
ing for lndustrlal and educational growtli
for in theso two nre the safety of a na
tlon and tho hJpplness of a people. Thore
who havo looked on have not falled to
noto with pleasure and pride ln thoir
raco the honesty of motlvo and Hrmness
of purpose displayed by the South. Wlth
out asking help frorn any, she has proud
ly Bhouldored her burden and moved
along. Not a murmer has escaped her
llps. Though the negro, ogged and abet
ted by those who prospored to be hta
friends, has don? much to pull her back
and humlllato her, she has dlvided her
half a loaf with hlm all the time, un
1T WAS NOT EVER THIXS.
Years ago tho North dld not know the
South as well as now, broad-mlndod peo?
plo there dtd not know tho condltlons here
as they do now and many honest peoplo
bellevud that the South hated the ne?
gro and was not dolng lier bost for hlm.
But thlngs have changed, What with
comlng In (oucli with Southern peoplo
by comlng here or Southern people golng
there, What with readlng Southern nows
papers and reports on educntlon frorn tl-e
South they have become convlnced that
the South has been worklng out its own
salvatlon in the propor way, that thls
country has rlsfti with remarkablo
growth frorn Its own nshoa and that It
Ib now dolng all it can to help nll its
peoplo, whlte and colored allko. Brond
mlnded peoplo nf tlie North who havo
been watchtng tho South, now come for
ward and say to Southern men: "You
aro rlght, brothers, you are dolng your
best nnd we want ln help you all wo can
to'pontlnuo the work as you havo mapped
It out. Will you let us?"
\ppro;iil!i'i! thn n ' BI>H'lt of l-ln-lness,
wltlmut the suggestlon of patronnge. thu
South has gratefully nnswered, "Yos."
With thls end ln vlew, tho Conference
