The reconstruction era began, and
it was Bishop Turner who issued the

Je had much to do with framing the
"enstitution of the State under Rad

ilare as a great political leader of
the republican party and his race.
During the Republican regime he
was made post master at Macon, Ga.,
and afterwards Inspector of Cus
-otas. In 1880 he was made Bishop
by the St. Louis confeenrce.
Bishop Turner and Booker Wash
ington, the two most distinguished
and influential of the black race in
the South today, represent trwo op
posite schools of racial and political
While the are personal friends,
- they differ as widely in their theo
ries of ithe future of'the race as the
poles are apart.
Washington looks upon the South
as the natural and logical home of
the emancipated negro. Recognizing
the fact -tihat they could not stand
alone, antagonistie as the races were
at the close of the war, and also see
ing that, in .time, the fostering handI
of the Government would be with-9
drawn, he advocated friendly rela
tions between the whites and blacks.
He further saw that the white would
never be lowered to the standard of
the blacks, he taught and preached
the doctrine of education, and the
elevation of -the negro by moral and
industrial means, up to the standard
of the white race. He taught -his
people that they were a part anid par
cel of this great commonwealth of
the South, brought hither through di
vine dispensation and here they
should remain and work ou-:: their
own destiny and that through their
own individual exertions alone, they
would rise or fali--that education,
morality and thrift were the pana
ea. These were Washington's ideas.
Bishop Turner took radically oppo
*site views, and had: -history to back
his -theories. He taught that two an
tagonistic or even different races
could not live in harmony and equal
ity in the same country, that the
strong would subdue and oppress the
-weak, that the blacks could never
rise to the standand of, or equal the
great overshadowing Anglo Saxon
race. In a letter to the writee he
"If the negro ever amounts- to
anything, he has to leave this coun

rise to any eminence, overshadowed

Mark what he says about the white
"It is a marvelous race, saxy what
you will or may."
Bishop Turner was broad enough
and wise enough to see that. He ad
vocated for twenty-five years after
the war the removal by the Govern
mnent of the negroes to Africa. He
claimed they were as fitted in lead
ership and ability to stand by them
selves, as were the Hebrew children
of old, and backed, as they should be,
by the government that liberated
.them, they in time would build up a
great nation in their fatherland.
Bishop Turner may have been cor
reet in his diagnosis of the situation
at that time, and had the government
uindertaken their removal soon after
the war, there would have been no ob
jeetion among the former slave-hold
ers. Bt that time has passed and will
not come again soon unless some.
great upheaval that human eve can
not foresee should appear. For,
should the tenants of the cotton and!
cane fields be disturbed, with a view
to their removal to Africa, the white
men of the South would buckle on
thei srwords as one man,and fig3bt for
their noteral laborers, as the world
has never gitidq
Washingto,#- understood his ' race
better than *u#aer. The former saw
that the negro was not a migratory
race, they were not pioneers, and
lacked every element of "blazes of
the trail'" fo erivilization. They are
a people of today. They care noth
ing for yesterday, and -less for. to
morrow. So Washington had little
trouble in carrying out his theories,.
while Turner failed. However, he
has been instrumental in taking two
shiploads of immigrants to Liberia.
Who is wise enough to foresee, a cen
tury hence, which of the two prin
eiples involved would have been most
advantageous to both races?
Bishop T.urner has made four
trips to the Dark Continent, and trav
eled almost all over Afriea. He has
visited Morocco, Liberia, Sierra Le
one, Cape Verd, and other points
north, as well as Cape Town, Preto
ria, Bloomfonitine, Queenstown,
Kimberly, Johannesburg, and other
places in the South and rescued unto
his .thurh ten thousand members. He
ganized four annual conferences,
one eaeh in Liberia, Pretoria, Sifrra
Leone and BloOmfonitine.
He is the author of numerous books
mostly of a religious order among
which are Methodist Poli, 'Hymn
Book of the A M. E. Church, Cate

Bishop Turner projected two news
papers, which &ave since been taken
over by the church. He is at present
Historigrapher of the A. M. E.
church, and publisher and chief edi
tor of "The Theological Institute."
During his ministry he has received
into the church 106,000 members.

Bishop Turner was a born leader
of men and might have been trium
phant had his race been other- than
the Ethiopian. He has been liberal
in his ideas, always frank, has had
the courage of his convictions, and
tried to be of service to his people.
He ha.s been generous, and without
prejudice, to those who opposed him
or his methods. For his great emi
nence and deserved honors, he owed
nothing to politics, to wealth or
birth. All has'- been due to his tow
ering mind and Christian virtues.
Scandals have never assailed him, nor
has his honor or integrity been ques
tioned. In private life he is courteous
and affable. Simple in taste and hab
its, free from fads or fancies he may
truthfully be called the greatest liv
