ANTIDOTE TO RACE POISON
The Rev. Richard Carroll, Colored,
is to Publish a Newspaper for
I Colored People.
The Columbia correspondent of the
News and Courier says a prominent cl1
business man and capitalist of Co- ne
lumbia has assured the Rev. Richard "n
Carroll, the well kncwn negro i
preach-r, that he would :ack him fi- loi
nancially in the plan to publish a pa
per in South Carolina. The Rev. m:
Carroll has long purposed to have a gu
paper that would reach the class of wi
colored people that desire informa
tion along the line of farming. The of
Southern Ploughman will be launch
ed by 'him on May 1 and for the tui
p..sent will be monthly. The busi- git
ss management will be in the hand
a white man, who understands the
siness. but the editorial manage
!nt of the paper will be in the hands
prominent colored men. Special
ention will be given to the coloret
mer and the colored laborer,
tere will be a woman's departmen'
ited by a colored woman and a
ildren's department. One of the
Lin features cf the paper will be th(
:ention given matters of religion-a

Thomas Miller, president of th<
ate Negro college; Prof. Cyru
mpfield and other men who know
out scientific farming. A whit<
rmer, whom the Rev. Carroll sav
Georgia 14st week, has agreed t<
rnis'h articles for the paper, an<
me of the professors of Clemsor
11ege will contribute articles.
It is expected that the paper wil
ve a wide circulation in a shor
ne. and an effort will .be made t(

Richard Carroll has been advise(
some prominent white citizens o
>lumbia to get a competent colore<
an to manage his institution fo
m, while he takes the field as a lec
rer and preacher. These gentle
en thought that white people every
iere would be glad to hear him.
Another gentleman said that "Car
11 should be relieved from the bur
n of runnnig the farm and of th,
her cares of his institution and h,
ould travel north and south in th,
terest of his work." He als<
ought that "Carroll should spen
s whole time lecturing and he be
ved., as Carroll stated in the oper;
use, that God had called him t
is work where he would help bot1
ces." A white preacher of Penn
vania, pastor of one of the wealth
;t Methodist churches, w'ho ha
ard the Rev. Carroll lecture twic
South Carolina, has urged him t

11 not only bring help to the negr
rough these leciures, but also t

ged to go to the Southern Baptis
