general Education Board Plans Fit*
ting Tribute?Gives Nearly One
New York, May 24.?Nearly $1,000,000
was contributed to the cause of
education by the general education
board founded by John D. Rockefeller,
at its meeting here today. Of this
sum $700,000 was appropriated for dis*
+rihntmr> amnn^ five colleges, the
largest contribution of $250,000 going
to the George Peabody College for
Teachers of Nashville, Tenn., for the
establishment of Seaman A. Knapp
School of Country Life.
It is explained that the gifts to the
colleges are conditional upon an equal
sum being raised by the respective institutions.
The sum of $210,100 was set aside
for demonstration work in agriculture
in the Southern States, for professors
of secondary education in State universities
of the South, and to aid the
work of negro education in the South.
The demonstration work appropriation
The miscellaneous appropriations
For Secondary Education.
For professors of secondary education
in the several State universities
of the Southern State, $33,100.
For supervision of negro rural
schools in Kentucky, North Carolina
and Virginia, $9,000.
To three negro schools?Hampton
institute, Hampton, Va.; Tuskegee institute,
Tuskegee, Ala., and the Spelman
seminary of Atlanta, Ga.?the
sum of $35,000.
What may be regarded as the
board's most important appropriation
is for the establishment of the Seaman
A. Knapp School of Country Life.
The late Dr. Seaman A. Knapp had
been in charge for the past ten years
of the farmers' co-operative demonstration
"work in the South. In connection
with this gift, a statement was
issued in part as follows:
"The general education board recognizes
that the George Peabody college
for teachers at Nashville, Tenn.,
promises to render conspicuous and
permanent service in the promotion
* it. 1- iV ~

"It further recognizes that the affiliation
of this instituton wth Vanderbilt
university will greatly enhance
the value of both institutions. The
board has therefore watched with
sympathetic interest the progress of
"The*general education board has
been interested in the promotion of
practical farming in the Southern
States and in the development of an
efficient system of rural schools. The
George Peabodv college for teachers
propose to train leaders for rural
schools; not for the traditional rural
school, but for the new school which
shall meet the needs of an agricultural
"After consultation with the president
and.trustees of the college the
general education board now makes a
contribution of $250,000 toward the
* endowment of the George Peabody
College for Teachers and for the speoifin
niirmsp of finrmnrtiripr tho <3pa
man A. Knapp School of Country Life.
For ten years the late Dr. Knapp was
the recognized leader of the new agricultural
life of the South. It is fitting
that his name be associated with
the George Peabody College for
Teachers, his great work perpetuated
through1 this institution and his name
beside that of George Peabody.
OTTS IN A FREXZY.
Uproar Follows Solicitor's Annonncement
of His Position and Reference
to Got. Blease.
Spartanburg Herald, 25th.
Solicitor J. C. Otts flung down the
gauntlet to his two opponents for the
office of public prosecutor when all
three met upon the stump for the first
time in the campaign at South Church
street and Bomar avenue last night,
and practically challenged them to
come out in the open and tell where
they stood as between Governor Blease
and Judge Jones. Amid mingled applause
and jeers he announced that he
intended to vote for Judge Jones himself,
and proceeded to score Governor
Blease, who, he said, had set the
courts at naught by his undue use of
the pardoning power. Mr. Otts' opponents,
Albert E. Hill and Ira C.
Blackwood, refused to be "smoked
out." Neither made any reference to
the issue of Bleaseism.
Disclaiming any intention of being
a "coat-tail swinger" and declaring
that he was making the race on his
own merits and expected the votes of
both Blease men and Jones men, Mr.
Otts at the 6ame time said that he un
dersiood that the pcopla would like j
\> know how the candidates for solicitor
stood in regard to Blease, and he ;
did not lack the manhood to tell them: .
he was for Jones.
Causes an Uproar.
The meeting had been as tame as a j
church service up to this time, but Mr.,
Otts' declaration precipitated an up- j
I roar. While a good proportion of the :
crowd clapped their hands in approv- j
al others yelled for Blease, and one ;
man shouted: "That's enough. We ;
don't want to hear any more from you. j
! Come down."
The same man continued to inter-1:
l rupt at intervals thereafter until Mr.
jOtts took notice of him and withered
| him by saying: "I don't want the votes
Iof your kind." The man was quiet,
! durine the rest of the meeting.
Solicitor Otts had confided to
! friends before the meeting that he was
j tired of the "pig-in-the-poke" cam|
paign which has been conducted up to j
ithis time and intended to force the;
I issue and get down to brass tacks j
I himself. The candidates have been:
j making nice speeches, telling the aud- !
;iences about being born on the farm
! and working hard as boys, and indulging
in glittering generalities, but sei
dulously avoiding telling the voters ,
what the latter want to know?thatj
! is, the atitude of the candidates to-1
I wards presnt condtions in the State.
I There were about 200 persons at the
; meeting, wmcn was held in front of
j Dominey's store. Many of them were 1
; workers in the Crescent and Ark-'
wright mills. j ]

VIRGINIA OPPOSED TO WILSON
Result of Democratic ConYention Explained?Alleged
Washington, May 25.?Because of
imperfect comprehension of the "modus
operandi," some very inaccurate reports
of the result of the Virginia
Democratic convention, at Norfolk
last Friday, have been circulated.
Those who understand the situation
know very well that the Wilson forces
were heavily defated and that the
compromise, whereby the few Wilson
delegates will be allowed to vote their
preference on the first ballot, after
which the unit rule will apply,
amounts to very little at first and
nothing in the long run.
The Virginia delegation is controlled
by the State Democratic machine,
which is opposed to Wilson and less
opposed to Bryan. There is more Underwood
than Clark sentiment the
delegation, but if it had to choose between
Clark and Bryan, or Clark and
Wilson, it would unhesitatinelv take
