WHAT WE NEED

olina Press A.sociation. Glenn
SpriLm S. C.. June 14. 1910.
Both Carolinas need and must
hare a larger proportion of w.hite
people. The whole South. in fact
is still too sparcely settled. Our 1 1
Southern States. excluding Texas.
support only 16.000.000 people of
both races. "and only '10.000.000
white people. while the same area In
Europe supports over 164,000.000
white people. And it must bc rc
membered that up to a -erta!n point
which we shall not reach for cen
uries yet, and other t.hings beine
mual. prosperity depends upon d.-r
dty of population. Ponulation makes
wealth. provided that it is normally
ntelligent and efficient.
Of course. we do not want the
owest class European immig-aton.
f we can get immigration from Eng
and. Scotland. Ireland. Germany.
oliand. Swcden. etc-ia countries
whose blood has gone to make up
ur vigorous American stock- it
ould be of great help to us. We
re all of us such immigra:. our
oelves or descendants of such Immi
rants. From some countr'es o
outhern and Eastern Europe. on the
ther hand. immigration is of a de
-idedly lower order and objectionable
ecause of a low standard of intelli
;ence and efficiency.
On the very same principle. how
er. imm!gration of a normal or
dgh standard of intelligence and
eficiency is desirable. Such immi
rration can be had. and ought to be
ad-in some measure, perhaps our
'nglish. Dutch and Irish kinsfolk
,cross the sea-but chiefly from our
qorthern and Western States. For
-ars now hundreds of thousands of
he mnost enterprising and progres
ve farmers in the Middle West
iave been going into Canada with
ts long hard winters and bitter cli
nate. not only giving up American
Itizenship. but actually paying two
o three times as much for land in
bat inhospitable relion as land of
he same fertility commands in the
outh. We ought to have brought
hese men to the South. T.hey know
ur institutions. our language. they
tre industrious. thrifty. wideawake
nd many of them are of Southern
.ncestry who should naturally come
ack home. Let's brirg them back.
If there were no other reason for
dvocating such immigration from
he .\orth and West. I should favor
t as surest deliverance from our
ace problem. The proportion of
egroes to whites is too large in ev
-ry Southern State. and my hope i.
hat ultimately the tides of migra
ion and immigration will equalize
opulation until the proportion of
egroes in no State will exceed 20
er cent. We must train the netro
-the more ignorant he is the great
-r The burden on the South--but at
est the process will be slow, and
it present it would probably not be
oo much to say that in considering
ur w.bole population, including our
reat constructive leaders and cap-.
ains of industry, the average negra
n the Carolinas in economic worth
md effeiency is only half as useful
the average white man. in other
s'ords. in rating general av'erage of
diciency we should put the white;
an at 100f and the negro at .'.o. so
that a county half white and i
negro would have an average effit.~
ency of 73. or a .'nandicap of 23 p..:
ent, as compa.re' with a count '
with an exclusihe white population
of a norma! degree of efficiency.
Whether or not the digeren~ce is
as much as I have indicated. certain
t is that the larger the proportion
>f whites, the hig-her the ave-rage or
fciency. the more prosperous will
be our every industry, and the bet
ter it will be for everyv individ.ual
itizen. including the negroes them
selves. There are just two great
ways to buiid up the Carolinas First
ind of paramount importance is ed
ucation of all our ps e. di I
should only supplement this by rut
ting more earnest emphasis upon
practical education, education that
trains for efficiency, not educatior
suited to the great urban centers of
Europe and the North. but educa
tion suited to the' needs of a great.

Now let us start right-not by
seeking immigrants from Southern
Europe. but by advertising our re
sources to the thrifty, enterprising
and progressive farmers of the
North and West- -men of our stock
who only need an invitation t, r~g
