The New Tork Times, of Thursday
last, contained tbe following account
of Judge J. C. Pritchard'a presence
there and the object of his vlalt:
Judge J. C. Prltchard, of the Uni
ted States circuit court district which
Includes Maryland, Virginia and
West Virginia and North and South
Carolina, has arrived In the city from
bis home In Ashevllio, N. C, for a
week'a speecbmaklng in behalf of
the movement for bf tiering tbe con
dition of the southern negro. He is
speaking particularly In tbe Interests
of tho National Religious, Training
school, of Durham, N. C.
"There never bas been a time
since emancipation," he aaid yester
day," when a majority of the white
people of the south were not friendly
to the negro aa an individual. For
years after the close of the Civil war
tbe colored people were confronted
with a situation that was critical in
the extreme. The efforts of the1 north
In their behalf were, from tbe very
nature of thing, misunderstood by
the south, while the efforts of those
of the south who really felt an In
terest In their welfare were misun
derstood north of tbe Mason and
Dlion line. -
Fortunately, tbla condition bas
disappeared, and a majority of the
people of all sections are now in
hearty sympathy with the colored
people In their efforts to elevate their
race. The colored people of North
Carolina who have been upright In
their dealinga and avoided placea of
dissinatlon are accorded all the
righta to which tbey are entitled un
der the lav. a, and posset the coed
dence of the whites."
As showing the attitude of the
white people of the south and their
willingness to grant the negro educa
tional facilities, he told of tho effort
to have a constitutional amendment
passed to permit the negroes to have
for educational purposes only such
suma aa were raised from taxea on
property owned by negroes. ,Tbe
sentiment against thia measure
throughout the atate waa so strong
he said, that the matter waa dropped
before It could be brought before tbe
But Judge Prltchard said much re-
rualns to be dose In Improving the
condition of the negro, and he intl
mated that some of the money spent
for foreign missions might better be
used for this purpose.
"Christiana today are contributing
more than ever before," be aaid, "to
the uplift of mankind In foreign
lands, and it la proper that tbey
should. Rut the obligation to care
for those In our midst Is greater and
If posaible more Imperative. Until
we have remedied conditions at
home, borne missions should keep
pace with foreign missions."
One of the greatest men of the
negro race, he said, waa Dr. James
E. Shepard, who bad founded In
Durham, N. C, a school for the bene
fit of hla race. The negroes are
taken there, he aaid, ami while tbey
are being taught In industrial
courses they imbibe Ideas of the atti
tude toward life that la calculated
to advance beat their Interests. At
the summer svwslon it Is planned to
have courses' for settlement workers.

Men a Christian enunciation secre-
tariea, and to have literary and in
dustrial courses so that those who
ran attend the ahoo may come un

"There are about 30.000 negro
ministers in the United State," said
the judge, "and of these only about
19 per cent, aro trained. It Is the
hope of Dr. Shepard to reach these
untrained minister and direct them
along practical lines. '

will be attended by representatives
of the national government, public
