Large Congregation Heard Interesting Narrative by Frank P.
Chisholm at Methodist Church Plantation Melodies by
Colored Quintette. .
The story of Tuskegee, the Alabama'
Institute that has worked wonders with
the colored populace of,the south dur
ing its 35 years of existence, was In
terestingly told by Frank P. Chisholm,
a member of the institute faculty, be
fore a very large congregation in Trin
ity Methodist Episcopal church Sun
day evening. In addition to Mr. Chis
holm's talk, there were old plantation
melodies and hymns by a quintette of
colored singers, all of whom possess
The service was opened by the pas
tor of the church, ' Rev. Frederick W.
Colemad, who introduced Mr. Chisholm
as the speaker.
Three hundred years ago the white
man came to the new world and took
the land away from the Indian, said
Mr. Chisholm, and then, after a while,
they went to Africa and stole some
negroes. The negro was brought here
against his will. From the score of
slaves brought to America in 1619 the
population of the negro race in this
country has grown to about ten mil
lions at the present time.
Tuskegee institute, organized in July,
1881, by the late Booker T. Washing
ton, is 35 years old. When the insti
tute was organized Mr. Washington
was the only teacher. The school was
started without land and no capital
whatever. We can now boast of 193
teachers, said Mr. Chisholm. Thirty
five years ago we had only one build
ing. We now have over 100, nearly all
of brick construction. The brick was
made in our brickyards by students.
The students do the woodwork, the
painting and plumbing under the su
pervision of competent leaders.
From a very small membership the
student body has grown to 1,700 young
men and women. Thirty-five years ago
the institute did not own an inch of
land. It now owns 4,500 acres of land.
Counting students and teachers, etc.,
there are now over 2,000 people at the
Institute, and every one of these is col
ored. The only white men connected
with the institution serve on the board
of directors, and they live in New Tork

of negro progress. It clearly demon-

Lady Paget in Serbia, who was quoted
after his return to this country on
Feb. 23 on the Tuscania, said Saturday
that the report of his charges against
the Bulgarians had been exaggerated,
so as to create an utterly false im
pression. He said:
"I had a very definite object In view
both in London and on the 'Tuscania
when I discussed the situation in Ma
cedonia with representatives of the
press. Mrs. Edward Stuart, the pres
ident of the American Red Cross com
mittee for Relief in Serbian Macedo
nia, asked me to communicate to the
press on my arrival in London the
fact that the Bulgarian general staff
had refused our committee permission
to distribute relief in those parts of
Serbia occupied by the Bulgarian
troops. I also gave what I considered
their reason for this refusal. I said
that they wished to conceal their
methods of dealing with the conquer
ed Serbian population and that they
had very good reason for wishing to
do so. Before coming- to Sofia I had
for two months been engaged in relief
work at Uskub under Lady Paget
and had become tolerably familiar
with the cruel and oppressive nature
of the measures taken by the Bulgar
ian administrative authorities in deal
ing with the Serbs.
"These are the only two points I
wished to make the Bulgarian re
fusal to allow us to proceed, and the
reason for this refusal. I have been
very careful to avoid scattering in
discriminate charges of atrocity in
fact, both in London and on the Tus
cania, I insisted that I had not been
present at a single atrocity case. But
I did condemn, as I now condemn, the
barbarity of the Bulgarian policy to
ward a helpless and wretched people."
- FOREIGN MISSION GIFTS.
Reached Sum of $18,793,000 During
1915, a New Record For Prqtestant
In spite of the war 1915 was the
biggest year of gifts to foreign mis
sions in American history, according
to figures compiled for the Conference
of Foreign Mission Boards, of which
Dr. Fred P. Hazzard of Boston is
chairman, and reported Saturday.
Gifts to foreign missions through
the various Protestant missionary
organizations of the United States
and Canada last year totalled $18,793,
000, being more than a million and a
half over the foreign mission gifts of
1914, and more than a million over
the best previous year 1912 when
Protestants in the two countries gave
$17,317,366 to the cause.
The biggest aggregate of gifts came
through the Presbyterian Board,
which totalled $2,262,061. This board
supports 200- missionaries and 5,863
native workers in the field.
The Baptist and Protestant Episco
pal boards cleared off large debts in
addition to carrying on their regular
work. One hundred and ninety-two
boards and societies are represented
in the conference and are supporting
10,497 missionaries in the foreign field.
These missionaries minister to 1,175,
000 in heathen lands who have been
converted to Christianity. These con
verts gave to the work of evangeliza
tion last year $4,541,982.

Thirty-flve years ago Dr. Washing
ton found the negro of the south lead
ing a hand to mouth existence. From
the beginning the institute has sought
to suDDly all forms of education. In
connection with the trade work they
give training in farming. The lnsti
tute has a farm of 1,000 acres from
which they annually raise a crop of
sufficient size to provide the wants of
the school. In fact, said Mr. Chisholm,
we raise everything but one thing, and
that one thing is a disturbance.
You will find young women working
as well as young men, be continued
At Tuskegee we believe In woman's
rights. Yes, we believe that a woman
has just as much right to work on a
farm as a man. We are also teaching
cooklnar at Tuskegee.
Tuskegee graduates may be found
all over the southland. The demand
for our graduates is five times larger
than the supply. The labor class of
the southland today is the negro race,
and Tuskegee is endeavoring to in
crease the emeiency oi these people.
If you should come to the south I
would like you to visit our banks. Do
you know that we now have 63 negro
banks? Fifty years ago hardly 2 per
cent, of our people were able to read
or write. Today 70 per cent, of our
people can read and write. As far as
property ownership is concerned, the
nesxo started at zero. Today he is
paying taxes on 1600,000,000 worth of
property. In all directions the negro
is making rapid progress. But in spite
of this fact there are backwoods edu
catlonal conditions In the south. This
problem is by no meanB solved. The
encouraging fact, however, is that we
are going forward and eventually we
will solve this great proDiem.

of the great need of financial aid in

0,000 TO AID
THE SMALLER TOWNS
State Has Distributed That Sum From
Treasury During the Last 13 Years
During the last 13 years that Con
necticut has been aiding different
towns of the state in paying off the
indebtedness on railroad bonds for
transportation improvements, the state
has distributed nearly $80,000. accord
ing to information brought out at the
last meeting of the board of control.
The discussion arose in connection
with the discussion of Old Saybrook's
financial conditions, and the town was
allowed $250 to assist in baying off
its indebtedness this year.
The law undec which this money
was paid was passed at the season of
1903 in response to an aprpeal from
towns which bonded themselves to en
courage the building of railroads, and
which had not paid off the bonds. The
payment of the bonds had become a
financial burden on the towns and they
were felt ot be a hardship In many In
stances. The law provided that the
state should pay oftB per cent, every
year of the indebtedness.
The town of Portland had the heav
lest load of debt with a railroad Cbli
gation or $Z75,(wo. Chatham came
next, with a debt of $102,000. The
town of Saybrook, which was paid
$250 by the state Wednesday, owed
The help which the state has ren
dered the towns has been appreciated
and has encouraged them to pay off
the entire indebtedness. The' law re-
quires the towns to pay off a certain
amount of the indebtedness every
year. The reports that reach the state
comptroller's office show that some
towns are doing even better than they
are required to do under the law. They
are not content to ipay the amount
specified In the statute, but go fur
ther. The authorities of the state
have reason to think that In a shorter
time than was at first expected the
entire indebtedness will be paid oft.
Some of the towns have been able
to refund the bonds and in that way
reduce the interest paid on them. This
saving in interest has afforded ad
ditional financial relief, and it has
added to the ability of the towns to
pay off bonds.
