that part cf the fund for education in
the South should be given to negroes;

by the board, were the principle points
brought out at the second hearing of
the committee to investigate the
charges against President S. C. Mitchell,
of the University of South Carolina,
Most of the afternoon wa^ occupied
in taking the testimony of former uovernor
Ansel, who is at present a member
of the' Peabody board.
That, in his opinion, no officiaal of the
University of South Carolina had ever
attacKed me lniertsis ui iuuh up vjuilege;,
that if $100,000 had b:en appropriated
for each of the State unlversi-1
ties of the South, there would have re- j
"mailed nore of the fund to be distributed
for negro education or any
oth-ei ruir'c*e: that under the plan
eubmitted by th?e 12 university presidents,
the negroes would receive less
of the fund than under any plan ewer
considered by the Pe-sody board; that
in all of the committee reports to the
board the State University had always
jbee* mentioned for an appropriation
of at least $40,000, and that neither
BL AVinthrop nor any other normal school
^Pwas ever considered in such reports;
rthat ex-Governor Ansel had diverted
an appropriation of $40,000 for the
j State University to Winthrop College,
were some of the matters attested to
^ by Mr. Ansel.
I Dr. Johnson was recalled to the stand
f at the beginning of the session, and
in the course of his testimony reiterated
much that was said on yesterday.
, \lt has been clearly established that
Winthrop received $90,000 from the
Peabody board, whereas the governor,
in his inaugural address, asserts that
"if this underhanded fight had not
B 'been waged against her, I am in?ormr
.ed that Winthrop would have gotten
a Dr. Johnson stated that he did not
r know of a trip North made by Dr.
f Mitehell, of which the governor spoke,
the latter asserting that, as a result of
> it, Winthrop had been kept out of certain
funds. All of the testimony submitted
by Dr. Johnson thus- far has
been to show that Winthrop College
was held in high esteem by officials or
the fund, and that it had been collie
temrilated by members of the board to
["remember Wii^throp handsomely in
the final distribution."
It has been shown that this dors not
occur in the p=cord of the board, and
Dr. Johnson's suppositions are based
largely on personal letters. Dr. Johnson
was asked by Senator Weston:
"Two committee reports to the board
recommended an appropriation for
.each of the Southern universities of
$40,000, the University of South Carolina
included. All of the universities
got theirs except the University here;
do you know who is responsible for
^ "I do not know, but I am responsi
ble, through Governor Ansel, for WinB
throp's getting her $90,000," repliel
I Ex-Governor Ansoi was asked the
!$ game question and re-plied; "I took the
responsibility. I suppose that the Unlm*
vensity would have gotten her $40,000
if I had not requested that it be given
It was brought out that Governor
Ansel, while a member of the board,

"We felt that a portion of the fund
should be used for th-e> education of
negroes, as was th-e> intention of Mr. J
Peabody," he said.

his testimony showed that the Pea'oody j

I of these letters says that thf> fund is
ft to be distributed among the entire popB
ulation of the South without other disH
wL tinction than their needs. Mr. Ansel
said that to him this was conclusive
that members of the board were bound i
fek> give part of it to the education of;
B|e stated that he had tried to get
the board to appropriate $200,000 for j
^FWinthrcp and $40,000 for the Univer- j
?sitv of South Carolina, but failing in j
Bthis he had advi-?9d that $34,000 of:
the appropriation intended for the Uni-i
Hper^ity be given to Winthrop, along
ftrith $50,000 originally intended for
Blarvard and that the University get
B>nly $6,000 for a schorarship fund.
Rrhis was done. His reason wag

Asked by Mr. Welch, do you think that
Winthrop got a smaller appropriation
by reason of th-e action of the president
of the University? he replied, "I
Questions by Senator Weston brought
out the fact that the fund at first
amounts $3,000,000; that this amount
wa? decreased by an appropriation of
$1,500,000 for the Peabody College, of

by the last general assembly,to investigate
the charges- made by Gover
nor Blease against the Ansel windingmp
commission, and former Attorney
General Lyon, in their report filed with
the senate this morning and ordered

Ansel commission overcharged the
State, says of the charges made by
Governor Blease that they are "wholTv

bers of the Ansel Commission, Dr. W.
