tcmber 17. 1SC6,
In June, 1871, the main build -ing
was completed. It was a
substantial brick building, 60x70
feet, three stories, conveniently
arranged and eligibly located up
on a prominent hill, just outside
the limits of feffcrsou City, com
manding a view of a part of it.
The grounds contains 20 acre.
"The legislatures of 187'. ap
propriated 515,000 for the sup
port of the institute, provided
$5,000 should be applied to the
payment ot its indebtedness.
Thih appropriation wascontaine d
in the general appropriation bill,
and was a grand to a corporation
managing a charity. The contsi
tution provides: "The General
Assembly shall have no power to
make any grant of public
money or itnng ot value to any
individual, association of indi
viduals, municipal or other cor
poration what ever? The grant
was in violation of that part of the
constitution Just uotcp." Gov.
Phelps, from whose message to
the legislature the above is tak
en, held the bill until the board of
trustees met and unanimously
voted to transfer the Institute to
the State The bill was immed
iately approved. This friendly
act of the late Governor entitled
trustees to pay every dollar of the
debt which for several years had jg
embarrassed them and to place 1 3
the Institute on a more perma- J.
n ment basis. U-
Since the Institute became a
coin Institute, this city educated

A. IS. and A. M., the degree of Ph
D. from the Marris Urown College
of the same city, also at Wilber

he received the degree of L. L. D.
He held the chair of English and
pedagogic in the Georgia State
Industaial College of Savannah,
taught in the University of Atlan
ta and public school of the South,
Here at Lincoln University he
was teacher of Latin and Greek
five years years, English and
pedagogies three years and was
made president of the Institute
three years ago. Hii advantages
as an educator are such as to
make him qualified eminently for
the position he holds, and it is
conceded that he is the right per
son in the right place.
