ROOSEVEI/T IN AFRICA.
An Astounding Story of What 1m Re?
lieved to be the Real Purpose of
the Ex-Preeklent'8 Mysterious
Journey to the Dark Continent.
William Buckey, in Lenlle's Weekly.
That Theodore Roosevelt, while ap?
parently in Africa on ?. hunting ex?
pedition, killing tigers and fleas, Is
in reality carefully investigating con?
ditions to ascertain if it be not pos?
sible and practicable to establish in
the Sudan country a second empire
of Liberia, and thereby solve forever
the negro question of America, is
the disclosure made by a United
States Federal attorney, in charge of
a southern district who relates the
supposed plans of Roosevelt in all
their details. The plan as revealed
by the former president's confidant
Is "to stake out a good section of the
country In the Sudan, north of Con?
go Free State and east of German and
British East Africa, hoist up the
Stars and Stripes at the four cor?
ners have Uncle Sam declared pro?
tectorate, organise the native tribes
a suzerainty of the United States of
America, end then will come the
expatriation of the negroes from this
country to the new empire in the
heart of Africa. In the rounding out
of the plan, a wedge will be formed
by a nation under the control of the
United States, that will prevent the
expansion territorially or commer?
cially of Germany and will make the
United States a factor In the balance
of power among the nations of Eu?
rope now struggling to retain and en?
large their footholds in Africa.
The Federal attorney who disclos?
ed what he asserts was the Intention
of President Roosevelt to solve the
negro question while in Africa, bore
out his declaration with a buttress of
facts that dovetail with the move?
ments of Roosevelt both previous to
his departing for Africa and since he
has penetrated beyond the reach of
the newspaper aim. "His plan to
cross a territory not at present un?
der the flag of any European na?
tion," continued the Federal attor?
ney, "his determination to take with
him men known to be expert agri?
culturists capable of Judging soil con?
ditions; his skill in surrounding him?
self with representatives of the civil
and military arms of the government,
and above all, his persistent refusal
to allow any newspaper men to ac?
company his expedition?all these
acts and facts lead me to believe
that Roosevelt went to Africa to
carry out the plan he discussed with
me when gathering data on the ne?
gro question. He has taken with
him a large quantity of trinkets with
which to placate the natives with
whom he first would be obliged to
deal before mapping out the country
to be populated by the negroes. He
has kept his plans absolutely secret,
because every nation of Europe, at
the first whisper of his intentions,
would direct a dozen detachments to
dog his footsteps and prevent another
"With Roosevelt, long before he
devised his scheme to deport the
blacks to Africa, the negro question
always has been a paramount issue.
He told me that the crltlcisim he re?
ceived from all parts of the country
when he entertained Booker T.
Washington caused him to come to
the belief that it would be utterly
Impossible to educate the negro to a
standard of social equality with the
white race, and that he saw clearly
that no Inferior race could exist for
any length of time and prosper In a
Republican country. Roosevelt said
the attitude the South assumed to?
ward the Charleston postmastershlp
confirmed his belief, and that it was
this, bed on other facts he had gath?
ered, some of which I gave him, that
led him to form his plan to see if the
only logical solution of the negro
question?deportation?could not be
brought about successfully. Through
Federal officers scattered throughout
the South he ascertained that a con?
dition existed that was leading to one
certain end, and that would be the
extinction of the negro element by a
method other than race decay. His
data correctly informs him that the
negro as a laborer in the South was
fast being replaced by the negro as
a thief, and that even such menial
positions as waiters, street cleaners
and day laborers on public improve?
ments all were being filled with
whites, while the negro, having no
employment left open to him, was
gradually becoming more and more
accustomsd to iupport himself by
thievery and to consider himself at
war with the whites. All through his
trips to the South Roosevelt sought
Information concerning the negro
question, and ths Information he re*
served, I believe, ss ths basis for his
expressing himself so freely and as?
serting It was his belief that thS si
let en oe of the negro In North Ameri?
ca had bceesas a question of the abil?
ity of the South to Continus to hear a
burden that whs becoming excessive.
-The police chiefs of every South*
era city will assert that the negro Is
the guilty thlsf In forty-nine et
out of every fifty. The penitentiaries
are full of negroes, and ths South?
em sHtss are slamorlag far relief
from negro ex-convicts from the
convict farms and prisons." The plan
outlined by Mr. Roosevelt, and which
took him to Africa to complete, con?
tains a solution to every vexatious
question connected wi*h this prob?
lem. The fact that the negro now is
a citizen of the United States and is
a property owner, and all the diffi?
culties, legal and otherwise, entailed
in the execution of this plan, all are
solved in the explanation of Roose?
velt's intentions to deport him, as
disclosed by his confidant. "Theo?
dore Roosevelt relies on his popular?
ity as Napoleon did on his," asserted
the attorney, "to carry him through
all his difficulties In bis novel scheme
to deport the American negro to
Africa, He believes that It will be
easy to persuade the nation to abro?
gate the Fifteenth amendment, and
then the negro will have the same
relations to the Federal government
as the Indians, and they were ejected
from their lands handed down
through centuries of ancestors and
forced to migrate thousands of miles,
as In the case of the Semlnoles. He
relies on the support of the South
for the financial burden necessary to
cairy out his plan, provided his re?
ports of condtions In Africa are fav?
orable. If It is pointed out to him
that the terri*ory he would annex
practically Is far Inland and not ac?
cessible, he wi'.l point to the success
of the Mormons In making a fertile
valley out of Utah, when they were
obliged to cart all their material and
supplies overland from Kansas City.
"Roosevelt will burst from the jun?
gles of Africa next April and say,
'Here, I have done it; now help me. I
have risked my life for a year to find
a solution to your negro problem. I
have organized a friendly federation
of tribes In the most fertile country
of Africa. I have prepared a place
for the negro, where eaeh can have a
hundred and sixty acres of land. This
is not the pestilential coast of Liberia,
but the very heart of Africa. The
colonizing of this country will also
prevent the expansion of our com?
mercial enemy, Germany.' And then,
exerting all his influence, he will run
through legislation and strike while
the Iron is hot. He plans, If neces?
sary or possible, to have the individ?
ual States issue bonds to finance his
migration and expatriation proposi?
tion, in proportion to the negro pop?
ulation in each, supplemented by a
bond guarantee by the Federal gov?
ernment. As a last resort he relies
on the attitude of the South to rpise
the money, if necessary by populer
subscriptions, feeling sure every
county and locality throughout the
Scuth will open subscription lists and
'.hat the money will pour forth in
'There is one more problem aad
Roosevelt seems to think he can
solve this also. And that is the nec?
essity of being able to persuade the
negro to migrate. State legislation
Roosevelt knows he can control If its
object Js to settle the negro question:
but by offering the negroes peace
and safety, freedom from conditions
that are now humiliating by offering
each a farm with a bonus with which
to make a new start and buy the
tools of husbandry, by acclaiming
that he is the friend of the negro
and always has been, and that his so?
lution will Improve them as p. race
and as individuals, by these means
Roosevelt hopes to overcome the sit?
uation without compulsory legis?
lation, unless It might be by a re?
mote time limit of, say, twenty yoav*?.
If he does not find conditions over
there as he expected as he has net
announced publicly his plans, he can
withdraw graoefully and no harm
has been done; but I feel sure he will
do his utmost to put the deal
through. It Is the kind of an under?
taking he likes."
What Is Roosevelt really doing In
Africa? Strong evidence is now be?
ing brought to light which affirms
the rumor that he is there to solve
the negro question. Did Roosevelt,
a man who has kept the world In
a turmoil for seven years, go out to
Africa with dreams equalling those
of the Corslcan, expecting to reverse
the laws of ethnology and turn the
tide of migration back from west to
east? Did he expect to succeed
where Monroe had failed, to combat
the lust of European nations for ev?
ery inch of soil on the dark conti?
nent? Did he expect to be able to
accomplish that which the sacrifice
of a million lives in the Civil war did
not? And If this has been his real
game. Instead of Hone and tigers, will
he burst from ths Jungles of Africa
nest April, expecting with one hand
to push hack ths nations of Europe,
and with the other to beckon to the
Ishmael tribe of North America and
point It the way to a promised land?

The Island of Nlckles and Dimes.
This past summer seven to eight
million people made twenty million
trips to Coney Island. They spent
there forty-five million dollars, most?
ly In nickles and dimes, and the to?
tal sum was three times what we
paid Russia for Alaska.
There are in Coney Island, peanut
stands, the size of a broad ton desk,
which rent for fifteen hundred dol?
lars a season. The men who sell
"frankfurters ' pay enormous sums
for the right to stand where they do,
and get their money back in the nic?
kels of the twenty millions.
On week-days the attendance is
large, but on Sundays and holidays
it rises to a point where each visitor
has room only to be happy standing
still. On the fourth of July four
hundred thousand people crowded
into the little island, bathed, shot
the chutes, were photographed, and
at "redhots." It was believed that
Coney would not hold a single ad?
ditional visitor, but on August 15th
a new hundred thousand came, mak?
ing half a million in one day.
It Is a wonderful business?this
Coney Island?but a very risky one.
The nine hundred million nickels
depend upon the weather. When the
mercury drops, profits fall to noth?
ing. If a plague should break out
and the island be quarantined, boats
would stop running and the people
would stay in their city homes.
