SCHOOL IS TO 1JF, LOCATED AT CAPITAL OF STATE. Projected Institution Goes to Baton Kouge, Instead of t1 Rapides l'ur- Alexandria, La.,. May 5, Leland University, a school for the education of Negro youth, which Is fostered by the educational board of the Northern Baptist church, will not be located near Alexandria, as had been intend ed, but it will be established at Baton Rouge. This action was decided upon at a meeting of the committee having the matter in charge, which was held in New Orleans. B. P. Thompson and Rev. A. J. Barton, of this city, are members of the committee, and attended the New Orleans meeting. The board originally Intended to locate the college just below the city, and about two years ago pur chased a piece of property for that purpose, but Buch a storm of pro test went up from the people along the river between Alexandria and Echo against the establishment of this Negro school so near them, the question has been held In abeyance until the meeting of the committee in New Orleans. The committee in spected several sites In New Orleans, but finally selected a site at Baton Rouge and decided to establish the institution In that city. The Northern Baptist educational board has in hand $400,000 for this school. The board will use $200,000 as an endowment fund and $200,000 will be used for he erection of the buildings and their equipment. The board has also made an offer to match every dollar that the Negroes raise for this school with four dollars.

Regarding the subject of appoint ments, some have even dared to say that the administration Is Rettinir cold feet. Hut this cannot he veri fied. There are certain conditions obtaining-, nnd If these are stated, the public may reach conclusions with as much assurance as they erlest politician or correspondent. The New York World. Democrat, in Its Wash ington correspondence recently, called attention to the fact up-to-date no Presidential appointment has been made. The appointments of Lieut. Flipper, by Secretary Kail, and of I'hil H. Brown, by Secretary Davis, may be termed "personal" and do not re quire Senate confirmation. President Harding has adopted a policy of per mitting the cabinet heads to name their assistants. In a very larue meas ure. This relieves him of considerable detail anil worry. The World siates that Charles W. Anderson has the stroip?st backing for his old position of Collector of the Tort 01 New Vork, and that Colored people throughout the 1'nitcd States have benun to won der. In the matter of appointments, "Why the delay?" Southern Democratic propaganda Is very pernicious, and very insistent.

Here the evi dence varies. The Negro had a stick in his hand. Some say that the Mar shal, who is large and powerful, grab bed the stick and struck the Negro in the face with a pistol, knocking him down. Others state that the Ne gro, raising his stick backed awy, when the Marshal rushed in and struck him to the ground with his pistol.- Several other white men rush upon him and began to choke and beat him. "Two of his daughters started to him. A man kicked one girl In the stomach. The other reached Tier fath er and began to wipe the blood from his race. The three were quickly overpowered. The third daughter who was kicked was ill at the time. The blow made her deathly sick. She lay in Jail moaning and begging that something be done for her nnd her father, who wns bleeding bahlv from his wounds. Tho Sheriff locked them In nnd left them without medical at tention nnd ignorant of the charge nguinst them. "N'ext mornins the Negro learned thnt his neighbor hnd sworn out a warrant against him for trespass. The Sheriff refused to tell him what the charge was against his son and daugh ters. The Negro employed a lawyer. Then he found that he and his daugh ters were charged with resisting on officer In tho discharge of his duty his son with carrying a pistol. Only one witness claimed to have seen the pistol. This was the white neighbor, who said that he had seen the son put the pistol In the buggy, while the crowd was on his father. The buggy was searched. Tills pistol was not found. "Talk of lynching the Negro and his family caused their removal to another county. A coinndttce of citi zens waited upon the Judge of the circuit, who Informed them, it is charged, that he would put the Negro in the chain gang when the case should come up for trial.

"The son has been offered n loan of f'ISn by a leading farmer to pay a note, the holder of wbi.h. threatened suit during these troubles. A leading merchant gave the father s line of credit running from $8nn to $l..ri(le a year. One of the best citizens of the county signed his bond. "The education of his children and the success of his thrift seem to be the sole offense of the Negro. "Case No. 131, a Negro complained In a peonage case. At the trial In At lanta he appeared as a witness. Fear ing to return to the county he went elsewhere to live. The son of his former employer discovered where he wus living, obtained a warrant for his arrest, and brought him back. H- disappeared. A boy fishing found a skull in the stream.
