Nearly hall the colonial loivcrnors inuveil out." Tn live in North Carolina has always re ipin-eii more virtue ttian to move out. Five vears Is-fore the Kent I Mt ion the sleepy olil New York borrowed from North Carolina tiiiveriinr William Trynn, a rather promising imliviilual who hail given up all hope of govern ingtlie laud of Tar Heels, llnr nets' Nests, ami I'cgttl.itors. His tory constantly repeals itself. In r. cent teats t lie lurtll of Greater New York could not lie ueeoin plisheil w ithout a Tar Heel mayor. As I lie streams of the lilue litdge carry wealth of soil from North Carolina to oilier States, so her ceaseless streams of humanity have enricheil ami glut ilieil I lie annals of every Slate ami territory in the I ' iiimi. Such wealth of manhood, j no lavishly In'sIowisI, may explain the phrase -a good Stale to move' from;' a good Slate to inoe from, licc.iuse a good State to lie Imru ami raised in. Ict tin' phrase lie changed to reail, 'The Old North Stale a Nursery of Men.' "There is n new North Stale rapidly building upon the fouinla lions of the old. It is a new Stale, us essentially as Idaho, or Oklaho ma, lis forces aie the old forces, newly organized, directed, mid in teusilied.

The negro industrial situation does not present a present, but on ly a prospective, problem. I'p to the present lilue, the negro has confined his activities chielly In doing domestic and menial service in the North and farm work in the South. For these occupations he is filled, both by nature uml long training and in their pursuit then has been up In the uivscnt tune but little friction hettwccii him anil his white eo lulsiii'i-s. A new destitj is now projected for him. His en erg ics arc not only to lie stimulated in these old lines, but also directed into new channels. In short, the negro is In become the subject of new exploitations, and, as a result, we are in the midst of a noisy pro paganda for negro industrial edil cation. Fnder the new regime, the negro is not only to Ih- taught in the tcchniiiif uml practieeof the mechanic ami iinliistii.il arts and become mechanics and artisans, skilled in the use and manipulation of tools and machinery. His edu cation along these former lines is, in my judgment, uiMtialilicdly com mendable ami its benefits, IhiI It to him and the coiiuti , will Is- incut- iilable. I would not bv unv means suggest his exclusion Irani ciluea tlnnal opportunities along these latter lines, but I recogiii.e the ex istence of a racial sentiment, or prejudice, if vou plea.se, in some sections of this eounlrv, likelv to become us uncompromising upon the subject of lalsir contact with this race iw it is in another section uncompromising upon the Niibject of political contact w ith him, and for reasons not fundamentally dif ft rent : and I would raise here, to l.ighl the ipicst ion whether unless his training for couictilion in eer tain li ilea of employment shall take into consideration these actual ami know n sentiments and be limited and regulated accordingly in en deavoring lo mitigate one assumed unfavorable condition, he limy not he hurled against another coiuli tion, fraught with no good to him and much possible disturbance mid danger, Imtli to society and indus try. I do not mean to say that there is absolutely no present or prosiHi'tive opening in this couu ire for negro skilled labor, 1 do not mean lo sny the door of oppor tiinily ill this direction should lie closed to him. On the contrary, I hnve no doubt that u limited mini 1st of negro skilled laborers may liud employment, both in the Noith and the S inth, esss-ially in the South, lint when this agitation, for taking the negro from the plow handles am! 1 1 icing him in the factory, shall h ue had its full fru ition, t'licii the negro mind shall have, become intlamed with the idea lhal he ran ticst work out his destiny In the shop and the mill and the factory ami lens of thous ands of them shall have liecome skilled laborers, where, I auk, will they find work to dot That is the practically important qiiention, Will the captains of industry in the North throw open the doors of the great establishments to In in In rolloboration with their white em ploye, or in aome iiiKbinrc, lo their rirlnsiunf What answer have the great employers of labor in the North to nuke to these question?

"W illi more or less intimate ae ipiaiiituius- with the character, adaption, and capabilities of the negro, I am profoundly convinced that he can Is-st work out hisdes liny, whcrcicr that is to he. upon the In in, and that iiohIicic in the world are the eondiliaus and eu viriililiients so favorable to his de Velopuieut along collect lilies as upon the Southern farm.

Nor is farm pressivc of the best and si longest qualities in man. as is exemplified by the fact that from hence have come many of the men w ho through out our history have exerted a con trolling inlliiciice in every line of 1 1 li i ii a ii clloit. 1 poll the Southern farm the negro is constantly sur rounded and safeguarded by infill cuees which tend to protect him against the temptations to which Ins weak mid credulous nature is peculiarly subject. There he is strengthened, encouraged, and sup ported by close daily contact with a superior race, which lieur for him a sim-crc and genuine friendship and sympathy, and thcui he le speels, loi s, mutates, and some limes essays to emulate. Whatever in the way of improvement and de vclnpnicul be lias achieved in the past mid il has not been incinisiil crable -has lieon almost entirely achieved in these circumstances and surroundings. Nor has nor w ill the moral ami intellectual wel fare and development of the negro in the Smith Ih- neglected. To In sure, the South has not succeeded in abolishing while illiteracy; but we have done something in both directions and, under the circum stances, we are not ashamed that we have not done mure. I luring the past twenty years the uuuds-r of negro illiterates over ten years of age have deci-eascd ! percent. in the South, w hile in the same pc I mil the number of illiterate ne groes over that age have increased over '..'( per cent, in the North. We have expended since the war?!'-'",- 000,11011, raised by taxation, chielly upon the w hite man's properly, for licgio education. The total amount the South has raised and expended for education since the war has not lieen large compared with llie total amount the North has ill that time raised and expended for the sunt purpose, but the amount has Is en fully up to our ability, and, what is mine ilupoitant lo the present point, it has Ins-ii divided, gener ally M-r capita, Is-twcen the white man's child and the black man's child. The white mid black child do nut go to school under the same roof in the South, but wherever yon see there a white school house, somewhere nearby you w ill liud it negro school house nearly, if not ipiile, as good; ami all over the laud there are colored church buildings, to the construction of which w hue men mid women have lils-rally con. tribuled.
