H Mnvs. th*? nrinplnal th*? nririrpss tn thf?
graduating class being made by Mr. Roscoe
Conklin Bruce, recently elected superintendent
for colored schools of the District
Business Enterprise of Negroes.
"Business enterprise should certainly
prove attractive to many of you," Mr.
Bruce said. "When I hear men ridicule the
modtst beginnings of business enterprise
among the negro people, I am consoled in
recalling travelers' tales of the astonishing
acunun of native African traders. On his
own ground the native African trader illustrates
all the dualities and devices of the
keen-witted sons of scattered Israel. Then,
too. we must remember that slavery is the
death of the spirit of enterprise. Two handled
and fifty years of American slavery
would blunt the wits of the most inexpugnable
Jew! Besides, the meanest suck
in trade cannot be had without capital, and
in a land of dollars the doilarless unskilled
man finds capital infinitely hard to
Ret and infinitely harder to keep. Hut, finally,
there are thousands of negro business
men in America today, and many of them
have shown such pluck and shrewdness
and thrift and enterprise that they have
speot that goes with proved ability.
"I tell you, then, that there is every^reason
in the world why you should look to
business enterprise with reasonable confidence.
Everything depends upon your interests
and aptitudes. If you have an aptitude
for buying and selling, work and save
and plan and get practical experience until
at last you can open a store for yourself.
The negro storekeeper is born with one
great advantage over his white competitors.
If only his goods be good, his store
neat and clean and attractive, his prices
within reason, he may count upon his own
people for trade and support. There is, Indeed,
no more reasonable and convincing
evidence of this fact and of the economic
awakening of our people than the multitude
and the astonishing variety of cooperative
enterprises springing up as if
irurn urtt^uim leem sown fverywnere. J\.
large proportion of these enterprises fail;
the baby must fall not once, but again and
again, and yet again, if at last he Is to walk
?the method of pogress is that of trial and
error and trial again. It is thus that experience
is won and managers are trained
and the people are whipped and stung into
more intelligent and successful effort. The
promoters and managers of these co-operative
endeavors must be picked men, and
education is essential. Teach the people to
pool their Issues, to combine their capital.
Here, I say, opportunity beckons you. The
negro business man must, of course, put
his heart and conscience into his store; he
must encourage the men and women and
children who trade with him to buy not
gimcraeks and barber-pole candy, but tho
things they really need; he must sell a dollar's
worth for a dollar. The social benefits
which one good storekeeper in a negro
community can confer by tactfully directing
his patrons' purchases aright and by
refining their wants by suggestion?I say
these benetits are simply incalculable."

Preceding the exercises the annual meeting
of the board of directors was held,
