‘, Bishop H M Turner has been inter
!viewed on the southern problim and
the only conclusion that he was able to
l give to the public, was: “we should fa
vor the Butler bill and let this gover
;ment send us back to Africa.” —~Admit
; ing that, with all of his twentyfive years
of fieedom, he was not yet man enough
to take care of himself; nor could he
go about “as other freemen with out the
aid of the Treasure of the United
Statess He sumply disputes the state}

accumilated wealth, and are Tax pay!
ers l
on millions of Dollars wortl. of proper- |
ty. ‘He tramples vigorrusly, upon thel
statistics Jf the grand and florishing
reports of our brosperity, and openly
says we should drop everything and go
to Africa. Far better would the Bis
op appeared; had he called to gather 1
thinking men of the Negro Race, and
organized a commercial company, to
manage what the people has already
accumulated. The trouble with us 1s
that we have too manv : pilgrimage
leaders and not enough financial ones.
If Bishop Turner v. 1 use his -
fluence in marshalling the crops of the
many thousand of colored farmers In
the south, he would find that his ser
vices was needed to help develope the
resorces of this country. The trouble
here is not knowing how to properly
manage what he produces. American
Negroes know no morea about Africa
than American whites and every man
chat go nto that country should go
at his own risk, <nd own help. Because
Negroes inhabit Africa, is no reason
that we should; no more than it would
be for us to go to Hayti or San Domin
go or Brazil where Negroes are dense
ly populated. Thez Negro of this coun
ry are not paupeis, but by such men as
Bishop Turner, who has been elevated
b the rapid elevation of negros-too are
to giveing vent to the Butler and 2
vlorgan bills, simply holds the Nego
up to the wo.ld as being only an unin
terested class, awaiting to be helped |
out of the country. %
