Th<j American Colonization Society?the I only private enterprise In history that I ever established an independent nation i and fostered it to aelf-sfflclency?paid j i over today to Its ward, Liberia, more I than $60,000, the Increment of an Idle j fund, to be applied to the education of > the colored children of Liberia In the I public school*. The fund also will provide an annual Income of several thousand dollars. The annual proceeds of the same fund-* known as the Caroline Donovan fund? I are to be In part utilised for Its primary purpose of sending: desirable immigrants | to Liberia. The American Colonization ' j Society, whose activities have long lain i dormant, with the advent of prosperity | to Liberia as the result of assumption of direction of the national finances by the government of the United States, Is bent upon a resumption of Its activity In ad| vancing the prosperity, civilisation and ! citizenship of the colored republic in J Africa. Money la Paid Over. Dr. Henry L. E. Johnson, president, at | 2 o'clock this afternoon presented & j European draft for the amount Involved in the negotiations with Liberia to Ernest Lyon, consul general of Liberia in the United States and former minister of the United States to Liberia. The ceremony took place at the ancient offices of the organization at Pennsylvania avenue and street. It was twenty-seven years ago, in 1886, I that Caroline Donovan made a declara11 tion of trust, setting aside valuable real estate in Baltimore, the proceeds in rentals to be applied to the expenses of sending immigrants to Liberia, with a reversion of the revenues for education of colored children in public schools in the event that It should not be exhausted I for, the primary purpose. The estate I | was to be held for life by the owner, and J upon death to come under the trusteeship of the American Colonization Society. Caroline Donovan died a few years sfter establishing the trust. Fund Has Been Growing. Owing to the falling off In immigration, the Donovan fund has been increasing for many years. The American Colonisation Society was long anxious to place -- the Increment at the disposal of Liberia, but the absence of legislation adequate - to protect the application of the money stood in the way of a transfer of responsibility. ?;?Negotiations have been pending for // more than two years. A year ago the check for the accumulated revenues was made out, but technicalities prevented a transfer of the money to the custody of Liberia. The Lfberian legislature had enacted a law guaranteeing the safety of the fund and its application to the Intended purposes, but had inadvertently ;( made It difficult to pay over the money to authorized representatives. The American Colonization Society, by action of the board of directors, placed 1 the entire matter in the hands of Prezt. dent Johnson, who Anally paved the way Vi" by suggesting adequate arrangements and y \ iiiuiwauiift i to IOO|A;IIOIUIIJ?/ tu iu? uiwci J 1 ( ian government.
