American Colonization Society
Turns $65,511.11 Over to
Colored Republic.
Children of Aborigines Exclusively
to Benefit in Proposed Educational
An industrial school modeled after
the government Indian-African school
at Hampton and the Tuskegee school
conducted by Dr. Booker T. Washington
is to be erected in Liberia with
part of the sum of 166.611.11, Just
turned into the treasury of the colored
republic as a gift for educational purposes
by the American Colonization Society.
This industrial school is to apply
its efforts exclusively to the development
of the children of aborigines
who dwell within the territorial limits
of the republic.
This announcement was made by Dr.
Ernest Lyon, former minister of the
United States to Liberia, and now Ltberian
consul general to the United
States. Dr. Lyon has received the accumulated
proceeds of the Caroline
Donovan fund, turned over to Liberia
in accordance with the deed of trust,
from Dr. H. L. E. Johnson, president
of the American Colonization Society,
the organization which fostered Liberia
and made it an independent nation. Dr.
Lyon has been directed by President
Howard of Liberia to consult with Dr.
jonnson regarding the establishment
of the proposed industrial school.
Population About 2,500,000.
President Howard has shown a determined
purpose to carry civilization
to the native tribes of Liberia. The
aboriginal population is about 2,500,000.
It is the plan to locate the Industrial
school in some central and accessible
section of the republic. In confining its
activities to the teaching of the children
of aborigines it is the thought of
President Howard,to mold them to the
ways of their Liberian-American
brothers, who have had the lessons of
self-support imposed upon all individuals
in the United States.
The proceeds of the Caroline Donovan
fund, which have so been turned over
to the Liberian treasury, are not to be
exhausted in this one project. While
further plans are still to be developed,
it is probable that the general school
system will be advanced through its
agency The terms of the gift provide
that it shall be applied solely to provide
free education for colored children.
It can*be used for building schoolhouses.
for salaries of teachers, for upkeep
and administration, or any other
legitimate educational purpose.
Will Send Colonists.
The properties originally set aside in
the trust formed by Caroline Donovan
will continue to provide revenues to
the P^l/v^ i *1 C? 1.*.. II
muct iv,aii v^utVUiAailUH OUt'lCiy. X\C"
garding the time as opportune, with
the American government taking control
of the finances of the republic and
providing for military instruction, the
American Colonization Society proposes
to resume its activities in sending
colonists to Liberia. Dr. Lyon will assist
in the selection of the right sort
of material for colonization from among
the applicants for transportation. The
American Colonization Society will provide
passage to Liberia, with provisions
for the Journey, and will watch
over the colonist and aid him to become
independently self-reliant in his
new home.
The Donovan fund will provide a
revenue that at times should be as
large as $5,000. Only part of this annual
revenue, it is expected, would be
applied to emigration purposes, the
first purpose of the trust. What remains
it is intended to turn over to
Liberia to supplement the educational
fund already created by this first gift
of $65,511.11. This will give Liberia an
annual appropriation, varying perhaps,
for the administration of the public
school system, to which it can be applied.
"It is due to the conscientious scruples
and the untiring energy oft Presiden
Johnson for the American Colonization
Society," declares Dr. Lyon, 'that this
large sum of money has been turned over
to the Liberian government. Ample legal
protections, through his insistence, have
been built around It to Insure the application
of the fund to the intended purpose."
Gratitude of Liberia.
In a letter to President Johnson Dr.
Lyon expresses the gratitude of the
Liberian government and its administrative
officers for the gift from the American
Colonization Society. The letter
also expresses appreciation for the labors
of the American Colonization Society and
its officers, past and present, in behalf
of the negro republic. The letter reads:
"In the name of the president and people
of the republic of Liberia, 1 take this
opportunity to express to you and your
associates their grateful apprec ation for
the large amount of funds which have

their representative, to be used by them
for the educational development of their
children in the republic.
"No one knows better than I do relative
to the principal part you played in
bringing about the success of their
transaction, which means so much for
the future of the republic. I feel certain
that you will be rewarded for your
untiring efforts and conscientious scruples
in the conduct of this negotiation by the
wise and Judicious use of the funds by
those concerned.
"President Howard, as you know, is
deeply interested in the industrial development
of the aboriginal population.
That population, according to arbitrary
computation, numbers about two millions
and a quarter. In compliance with
instructions from him, I will confer with
him upon the subject of the location and
founding of an industrial institution in
some central section of the republic.
"You will kindly convey to your associates
in the society and accept for yourself
my sincere thanks for_ kindnesses
and courtesiees xtended to me from the
beginning of the negotiation to its end
Tuesday last. You may be assured that
I shall, and by a special dispatch, so impress
the president and people of Liberia-"
Doctors and the Canal.

Within a month small vessels will be

But who made this success possible?
We must not forget the part taken by
