C., Has Msrit. in a letter to the New York Tribune recently United States Circuit Court Judge J. C. Pritchard of the Fourth district at Richmond. Va.. expresses his approval of the wotk being done by the National Traiuing school, Durham. N. C. Judge Pritchard says: “I desire through the columns of your paper to call attention to the work of the National Training school at Dur ham, N. C.. for the Negro. This school Is farreachlug In its influence. It is endeavoring to give to the Negro high (deals and develop character. Its aim primarily is to direct the emotional tendencies of the race into practical channels and make It a means of uplift. “To this end It is training leaders In industrial, literary, social and religious walks and sending out these men and women so trained to reach others. To my mind no school is founded upon truer lines or Ls destined to do a great er work and especially with such a small expenditure of money. “General Julian S. Carr, commander of the Confederate Veterans of North Carolina and one of the largest hosiery mill owners in the south, says of this work: *1 know when a school ls worthy. This one ls. It is founded upon right lines. I am glad to accept the chair maushlp of the new board of trustees of this Institution for the Negroes, and. although 1 am resigning from board of institutions having to do with my own race, I want to help the Negro and believe that this school furnishes to me the best means.’ “Dr. Charles IJ. Park hurst and Colo nel Theodore Roosevelt havenlso heart ily indorsed this work. The immediate need of this school is $1,500 monthly with which to meet current expenses. $50,000 for buildings and $15,000 for beat and water. “The Negro ls here with us. He must be lifted up and properly trained. This can be done best by well trained lead era of his own race who are sent out to meet the masses. I have faith In this school and Its president I would be very glad Indeed if gifts for the edu cation and training of the Negro could largely go to supply tbe pressing needs and equipment of the National Train tng school, Durham, N. C.. of which Dr. James E. Shepard is president. “Additional Information aud facta In regard to this important work can be had from him. I believe that no gift will be more worthily bestowed. “J. C.

Education adapted to the real nerd* of the colored (>eople of the south of the kind to make them better citizen* received a great impetus in 1015, ac cording to the sixth installment of the annual report of the general education Itoard, supported by the Rockefeller foundation, made public the last week In March at New York. To provide supervising industrial teachers in colored schools the board has added $15,000 to the Anna T. Jeanes foundation, which produces an annual Income of $39,500, employed under the direction of Dr. James H. Dillard. State and county sui>erlntend enta are taking Increased interest In making the education of the colored child practical. Mr. Jackson Davis, who since 1011 has been the state supervisor of rural schools in Virginia, has been made general field agent in charge of Negro educatlou. Better schoolhouses, better teachers. Improved sanitation and a care for cooking and entertainment have lieen gained In the past year. The southern states are all working toward a new goal, an adequately or ganised, financial, administered, su pcrvlscd and mnnned educational sys tem. In Tennessee a long stride has been taken toward freeing education from politics, and an Alntiaraa statute completely reconstructs the county board of education. The board has appropriated $3,000 to Mississippi to Initiate a model organization In a sin gle county. In eleven states the board baa sup ported rural school agents, professors of secondary education and agents for Negro education.

PRAISEO BY GENERAL BURT. House Military Affair* Committee Re quested to Provide For Two Artillery Regiments In Present Plans For En larging Regular Army—Record of Ninth and Tenth Cavalry Cited. Washington.—Tbe following letter re cently sent to the chairman of the house und Semite committees on military af fairs and others voices the demand of 10.000,000 native born. English speak ing American citizens for the right to serve their country at this crisis of its existence. These citizens ask for the right to enlist in our army, while the Tenth cavalry is tearing the brunt in Mexico. The letter says: At the suggestion of Mr. Oswald Garrison Villard, treas urer of the National Association For the Advancement of Colored People, this appeal is presented asking for your support of the request that two regiments of artillery and two of in fan try of those ainuit to be created be designated as oftpn f*»r the enlistment of colored soldier> The adjutant gencinl has stated that he doubted if 175.<"Kj0 regulars could be recruited in the United States There is no difficulty In recruiting col ored regiments. Yet while officers are tearing their hair to get white recruits the sign is up. “No colored man want ed.” Does It not seem a ridiculous pro gram of prejmredness which deliberate ly excludes the l*est material we’ve got? That is no Idle boast. When the Fif ty-fourth Massachusetts stormed Fort Wagner in 18*tt it established for all time the tact thut the colored soldier could light and tight well. The history of the Ninth and Tenth cavalry in the Indian tights l*etween ISGS and 1890 piled up the evidence of their courage and loyalty. There have been notably fewer desertions from the colored regi ments tbnn from the white. The Ninth cavalry once astonished the army by reporting not a single desertion In twelve mouths, an unheard of and un dreamed of record. W. A. Jones. M. D. H. 1 M. Brown President Treasurer A. A.

Mre bayiag caaaa sad mi aa Their service during the Spanish war and since has shown our colored troops to be Infinitely better fitted for service in our tropical dependencies than white troops. Company Lof the Forty-ninth volunteers, composed wholly of colored men and commanded by Captain E. L. Baker, a colored veteran, who had served for seventeen years in the Ninth and Tenth cavalry, made a record which no white company remotely ap proached. This company had on its rolls during a period of twelve months 100 men who were fit for duty at all times and never lost a day on account of sickness. More extraordinary still Is the fact that during the same period not one of these men ever went before a court martial, surely a striking illustration of what can be done by colored officers Such traits enabled General A. S. Burt in relinquishing command of the Twen ty-flfth infantry on April 17, 1902, to quote the inspector general of the army aa saying. "The Twenty-fifth Infantry Is the best regiment I have seen in the Philippines." it was noticeable, too. that neither the officers nor the men of any colored regiment figured In the coarges and countercharges which arose cut of the use of the “water cure*' in the Islands. Since 1870 there have been four col ored regiments in our regular estab lishment. two of cavalry and two of infantry, but there has never been a colored artillery organization in the regular service. When ten regiments and several units of artillery were add ed in low the colored citizens of Amer ica were deeply offended that Secre tary Ib—t failed to recommend the es tablishment of any colored regiment.
