WAS MAN OF ÜBERAL VIEWS Conditions Which Caused Advocacy of Division of Colored Citlsene—'Vote Between the Two Loading Political Parties—Judge Hudspeth’s High Es timation of Bishop Walters as Leaden By WILLIAM L. OFFORD. LL. B. The political history of the Negro In eiii. country from the days preceding the reconstruction period to the pres ent presents some very brilliant and noble characters, both laymen and churchmen, who severally attained va rious degrees of prominence as leaders. But It was for bat few to attain na tional recognition and fame as did the late Blahop Alexander Walters. The bishop's education was received, with the exception of a year or so In THE UTR BISHOP WALTOS. the public schools of bis town,' under the private tutelage of some of tha moat brilliant and able teachers of the country, which training waa supple mented by extensive travel In this country as well as. the continents of Europe and Africa. The books of his line UMary bear evidence that 'he was on the best of terms with them and that they were not merely ornaments. Bishop Walters was a keen observer of the change of the political status of the Negro In recent years and viewed with apprehension the gradual elimi nation of the Negro from politics both north and south, not only by the Dem ocrats, but by the party of Lincoln and Grant He saw that the Republican party was looking on with Indifference while the Negro was being stripped of his constitutional privileges and lm muni ties. Seeing these conditions, he took counsel of other men of the race, who also viewed with alarm the drift of affairs, and they held a consultation over the politically prostrate body of tbe Negro, and they decided that the malady from which he was suffering was an overgrowth of allegiance to the Republican party, and the only cure was a division of tbe black vote This presented a hard problem, but the Negro, having been deserted by the party he had slavishly served. It was expedient that he form other frleadly ties At this time a friendly hand was extended by some right thinking Democrats, and the support of the col ored voters was solicited. Bishop Walters at once became the leader of tbe colored Democrats of the country. The following letter from former Judge B, 8. Hudspeth, national Demo cratic committeeman for New Jersey, to Mrs. Walters upon the death of the bishop shows the high esteem In which the late Bishop Walters was held by prominent and Influential men of the Democratic party: Jersey City, N. J.. Keb. 10, 1817. My Dear Mrs Walters—f fully expected to have attended the bishop's funeral and pay my tribute of respect and affection for him, but official duties engaged ms, and I was prevented. I waa dreadfullv shocked when I heard of his death, al though It wns not unexpected, the mal ady ho suffered from promising littio hope of recovery, yet I wished so earnestly for his return to health. The bishop waa a splendid type of a man. His qualities of mind and heart endeared him to all of those who had tha privilege of knowing him, and I fortunately was ons of them. He was human In his Ideas anf Impulses. Hs was always pleading for thoae who needed help, going out of his way to se cure favors for them, ready to make any personal sacrifice to obtain soma bench i for tha ono In whose cause he waa Inter ested. la hie rallgtoua faith he waa as simple as a child, that simplicity which was nev er disturbed by doubt or lack of faith. It Was a pleasure and Inspiration for me to listen to him talk, as I always left him with tha fooling that I had been benefited by hla words and the sincerity of his faith, not only In hlq Maker, but In his fellow men. The world would be very much better If w« bad more men like the bishop Tour race lost a great leader and* an Inspiring figure when he died. I feel sura that neat to the love of hla Ood waa his love tor hla people and that his highest purpose In life waa to secure for them tbe place and recognition In social life which ha believed they were fitted to oc cupy. 1 want to express to you and your family my sincere sympathy In tbta the hoar of your great bereavement.

FORGING AHEAD IN EDUCATION Progress of the Burgaw Nor mal School Noted. , 7 UNDER GOOD MANAGEMENT I ;Thrl#ty North Carolina Institution 1 Taka* on Naw Lifo Undar the Laad* ar#hip of tha Rav. C. F. Popa, Who , Know* Mow to Gat Rasulta—Battar Sehoola Would Chack Migration. By GEORGE F. KING. Bnrgaw, N. C.—During these days of lonrest and the pronounced tendency of thousands of Afro-Americans in the tenth to migrate north, many of our educators in the south are manfully ■hearing the educational needs of the BHniSi of the race. They are contend tug that the educational facilities for the face must be made better if the schools are to be effective agencies for raclhl development. If there is not a substantial effort on the part of the state to give the colored people their just apportionment of the educational funds the industrious and progressive men and women will mi grate to sections where their children will have better educational advantages. PBEtCIPAL C. F. FOP*. The altimtlon reveals bow well Intelli gent, honest and progressive men and wea>« can serve the race, especially In JJffi laial sections of the sooth, where (hie masses are In need of a loyal leadership. The Pender county commencement of the colored schools, which was recently held here, showed that the Influence of the Burgas Normal and Industrial school has effectively brought about such results that the relationship and co-oi -oration between the races sre bet ter. There Is a tendency on the part of the educational officials to give their Afro-American iatrons better school fa cilities and thus Improve the conditions. As an evidence of these facts during this school term, the schools among our people had an efficient supervisor | for the county In the person of Mrs. 8. IF. Smith, who did splendid work. She | has shown what we can accomplish If given a flair chance. ! There were about 1.200 children In | the parade on the commencement day, and the exhibits, literary contests and enthusiastic demonstration on the part I of over 2,000 farmers and their fami lies from every section of the county showed the result of helpful and Intel ligent leadership. Following this event were the closing exercises of the Bur gaw Normal and Industrial school. Again* wholesome demonstration was made, and registered the untiring seal and efforts of the better element of the race to go forward. Tim man who Is largely responsible for this constructive work In eastern North Carolina is the Rev. C. F. Pope, who la unassuming, Intelligent and strikingly forceful in the activities which bars resulted In procuring a progressive supervisor for the rural scho lia. New Impetus has been given to tt»%lfome Makers' Club workers, a moveqaent to teach mothers and girts how to make good homes. The Rev. C. F. Tope is a native of this ktate and was reared In Hertford county. After graduating from Waters Normal institute, Wlnton, N. C-, be en tered, the college and theological de partments of Shaw university. After graduating from this university he taught two years at Waters Normal In stitute and later specialised at Chicago university. He taught theology at Shaw university for eleven years. In 1916 he accepted the prlnclpalshlp of the Burgaw Normal and Industrial school, which has greatly Increased In Influence and efficiency the paat year. Bestdea hie efforts to secure the ceces sary funds for a new dormitory, which 4s of pressing need, the Rev. Mr. Pope hopes to have a member of the race appointed as a school demonstration agent. Among bis activities will be the conduct of a summer school for jteachera and a farmers' conference. ! Fifteenth Regiment Given Reoeptien.
