about it to those who may come among

much. We even dream that in twenty

"We are fortunate In being one of

Oulf Stream and the physical forma

causes, said Senator Morgan once, "be

the earth, must he perpetual." We can
understand what this means to us
when we learn that these conditions
belong to these States slope of all the
world. It is not a man made monopoly
or privilege which we enjoy. The
good God of us all arranged it.

who works In cotton works two hours,

has been the most useful man of his
kind the whole history of this country
has known, before a spinners' conven

over the matter carefully.

that thirty odd years ago. when I was
engaged In buslnes* with China, 11
tried to get a New ungiand mill to
make some cheap cotton goods for teat
market. There has been, as you know;
a large trade with China in |>-pp.;;el .

of a century, hut up to the time |
of the brands exported to the JSsst 1

a market ao much better at home; es
pecially. they would not agree to pack
toe goods, or to make them except up
on commission. In any form that would
render them unavailable for the mar
ket here. In tbe Interval, my under
standing is that a very large trade has
grown up with Chin" In cotton goods

that in the lirst Instance, when thft

market abroad was as good as a mar

we have found ourselves called upon

be wisely dealt with, it Is important to
realize just what It signifies, and what
can be. and what ought to be done
• The boycott undottntedly has arisen -
as an expression of the irritation of
the Chinese on account of the treatment
accorded to their countrymen under
the law of Congress regulating the en
try of Chinese into the United State*.
The law as present is so worded as to
admit no Chinese except certain classes
that are named—like merchants', stu
dents and others. The result is a nat
ural feeling of irritation on the part of
the Chinese that the whole nation ;*
discriminated against except a certain
few President Roosevelt has pro
posed to meet the difficulty by exactly
reversing the legislation; that is to say.
bv providing that all Chinese may
come as other people, except the coolie
class, which is the class it is 1 ‘tended
to shut out. There Is, so far as I know,
no particular desire on the part of Chi
na that the coolies shall be admitted.
Here in the United States the question

not a good reason, however, why the
United States should take an attitude
towards an entire nation which is at
once ungracious and unwise.
'"The position taken by the Presi
dent as to the amendment of this I iw
seems, to be thoroughly stat smanllko,
and the South can do notulng better in
the Interest of the country and in its
own Interest than to throw its nllu

fears that any change will lead to gen

change proposed by the President is In

"I reflected again as I passed the cot
ton fields of the South, that it is a
far cry from the South that used the
cotton fibre only to the South that tinds
a uss not only for the tibre. but also
lor the seed and for toe tiaik. It-ally,
what has been accomplished with cot
ton, in making use of wuat used to be
thrown away, is only a conspicuous il
lustration of one of lie most mai kcd
characteristics of our time. Mr. Car
negie once told me that he made tlcel
for two years out of toe waste heaps
of his neighbors' rac'dries, horaus. he
was the first in his line of buslnes to
emplov professional chemists. Sir
William H. Perkin was a young man
not twenty years old when ne discov
ered inane; and laid the rotindnnun >f
the great color industry in anfidne
dves. In one of'ills vxnerimutls ho got
a dark, ugly resldum that many would
have thrown a wav. but he examined it
carefully and out of this unpromising
substance made the first of the aniline
colors. This seems to me an allegory
full of instruction for every thought
ful,man and for evorv wise people No
community can afford to ner'.cet even
the most unpromising element of its
population, for It never sail tell what
advantage to the genera) vial may
come out of the most unproun.-iing ma
terial. •
A tew years ago I spoke at an export
convention In Phibtdelphl*. with the

Mr. Parsons made •.no statement that

As you know, I have just come from

highly creditable to those who have
organized It and to those who are car

at least, if then- be a oerfect school, I
have never found It: and It Is reasona
ble to expect that Tuskegee will Im
prove year by year. Especially I hop’
to see It mean continually more and

friends of the school never forget that
the State of Alabama made the school
possible by tha grant of thq first money
that It ever had.
"Many at the North know very little i
of the progress of education In the I
South In the last twenty years, but
those of us who know something of it,
appreciate that there Is no prouder
chapter In the educational history of
the fnlted States than that which tells
the story of the efforts of he South to
provide everywhere a double system of
education for Its white and Its black
children. My observation is that where
there Is taxable property enough to
provide adequately for both races, both
r." era receive equal treatment. Where
the -e |s not taxable property enough to
provide adequately for either or for
both, no man should cast a stone at
the South who Is not prepay-d to snv
that. In the like casa, be -irnself would
not favor his own child. But despite !
the heroic efforts of the Southern pt-o- L
pie. filled as I know you are at the !

believe Is beyond your unaided i

"I believe the time has come for the
ne" once more to consider the ur
gent necessity of national ltd for th*
States In the effort to extrrnvnate Illit

which, with federal help, the various
States have established cffe*tive agri
cultural schools, offers a Model for
wise legislation upon this subject In
the domain of agricultural and indus
trial schools for the children of the
people. It Is a model In two vital re
spects: It Is not sectional, for it applies
to all the States, and neither does it
Interfere with the States and the ses

Any one who knows anything ahon*
the agricultural colleges established
under the Morrell bill knows that they

that the burden of proof Is really upon
those who challenge the same poliev in
Its application to the problem of llh:-.
