Institution Founded by Dr. James E. Shepard Affords Opportunity For Pastors and Teachers to Proporly Prepare Themselves—Plans For tho Summer School. By GEORGE FRANCIS KING. Durban). V O.—'Throughout this anil other state* the ministers of the rn« e ' are manifesting uu appreciable interest iu the forthcoming ministers' confer ence to be held July 0 to 13. Inclusive, at the National Religious Training school iu this city. This movement was born in the fertile miml of the Rev. Dr. Janie- K. Shepard, the found er of the most essential educational and religious undertaking ever inaugu rated for the wholesome uplift of the I race. i The plans of the conference are so comprehensive and farreaching that not only ministers of the race are san guine over the needed results that will be gained from such a meeting, but ; leading white divines in many section of the country are giving impetus to the effort by substantial encourage ment. Dr. \Y V. Chapman, pastor of one of the richest Presbyterian « Lurches in the couutry. located in Newark. V J., is an enthusiastic advo cate of the 1 conference. He says that the sociological problems of the race are largely to be solved by the Afro ; American preachers. He has visited this famous institu tion several times since It opened for the reception of students and has care fully studied conditions. Such n force fill character a* Dr Chapman, who al ways contends for giving the Negro i every right that Is guaranteed an American citizen, will again this year give a series of lectures at the sum mer school and Chautauqua. Dr Shep urd is receiving applications from min I Mors in many sections of the country j and the preachers in the rural district who need such inspiration and instruc tion as will be derived from such a conference. The progressive citizens of Durham | of both races are preparing to make I this meeting one of national import. ! The institution will entertain during I the week of the conference all minis tors without cost. Such a concourse of divines, entirely undenominational, de j liberating upon questions of vital Un I i>ort to the race and nation will be I epochal in character. After a careful 1 S investigation it lias been found that I there are 30.000 Afro-American preach ers in this country nml that only. 3,000 | are rightly prepared for the noble work they should accomplish; hence the not'd of such a confereuce Is apparent. It will be n potent factor in reaching the masses of the race anti turning the ac tivities of thousands of them into chan ueis of usefulness. Beginning July 3, the summer school and Chautauqua of this well known oducatlounl and religious Mecca will be crowded with students and teachers and visitors. Dr. Johnson of Xenia. O.. the noted Bible student and Instructor, says that this effort has nn influence and helpfulness analogous to the move ments of the white race. and. although as one of its lecturers, he was greatly benefited. The musical features are away above the average Noted singers and reciters nre hoard dally. Such loo turors as Professor Kelly Miller. Mr. D. Webster Davis, with his wholesome wit and philosophy, and Professor Douglass: The program for the summer school and Chautauqua ns Is now being ar ranged will be one of the greatest sources of inspiration, educational and with splendid social diversions, that have ever been uceorded the race in the south. The splendid achievements of the race along commercial and profes sional Hues in Durham are "native •de; •• fur tin* visitors, so all who u attfu.l the ministers’ conference, sum mer --bool and Chautauqua will be enc< united i*v such concrete evidences of irmial progress.
