The conference of the supervisors
of Kentucky and Tennessee closed a
very successful session Friday night

was held under the- direction of Dr.
Dilllard and others at the head of

from the different counties made
splendid reports, which met the ap
roval of those in authority.
The ball game Saturday, last, be

cessful at base ball this season, ami
it la the hope of the institution that

AN APPEAL TO THE WHITE
To the White People of the South:
Inspired with a desire for the wel
fare of the Southland, I desire as
member of the colored race to ad
dress you on a matter of grave con
Large numbers of colored people,
"i you know, have left the South for
the North; large numbers are still
'nving, and still larger numbers are
planning to go. Among those yet to
are some of the most substantial
and dependable element of the race.
Despite the temporary material ad
jutage this brings, I am convinced
bv practical observation in both sec
'ons that it is not for the permanl
-it large good of those who go. At
the same time hte loss of so many
of our lih-nri f-nn but handicap the
h at the time when the world is
making upon it thelargest demand
In history for raw material.
If this movement is for the best
"nod of neither the white man nor
black, enlightened self interest would
snggest that something be done to
"heck it. In my opinion, there is
'''it one remedy, and that lies in your
hands. As I have studied the ques
tion carefully among my people, I
find two reasons for their course.
They seek better ' wages and better
Evidently, then, : a reasonable in
crease of wages In view of the high
cost of living and a more liberal poli
cy toward the colored people in view
ot the trend of the world toward larg
er liberty would, tend speedily to ar
rest this migratory movement.
Though these things' appeals to
.their leaders in this hour of their
panic will continue to be in vain.
J. believe your press and pulpit
could have a powerful influence in
molding sentiment in the right direc
tion at this time. Is not this the
hour for the best men of both races
to get togethher tor the good of the
South. A conference of conservative
and candid men of both races in each
community would bring' tolight speci
fic matters whose correction would
nrove the desired solution.

NEGRO PUBLIC LIBRARY.
Last year 2C,0t)0 persons used the
library. This does not include the
persons using the club rooms.- We
circulated 7,000 books. We are proud
of this record. If w0 can do this the
first year of ita iufancy, then the
i'.rst year should lie an incentive to
make the second year better. (When
we consider the fact Hint such a
very small percentaeg of children in
i no eieiueiuury scaoois ever go to
the higher institutions of learning,
it behoovse all of us to Inspire those
who have seen their failure to grasp
tbe opportunity of using the library,
in order that they might gain a fair
education by means of the library.
