SCORES THE SOUTH.
Kx-Governor Glenn Says Negro is
Not Treated Fairly in the South,
Especially in Matter of Education.
Cleveland, Ohio, June 8. A severe
araignment of the Southern States
for their failure to properly educate
the negro was delivered here to
night in an address by former Gov
ernor R. B. Glenn, of North Carolina.
Mr. Glenn declared that in eleven
Southern States where the negroes
form 40 per cent of the population,
only 15 per cent of the school fund is
devoted to their education. He was
speaking at the Euclid Avenue Chris
"This leads," he said, "to an in
crease in crime and immortality and
is especially noted in the illiterate
leadership. There are 30,000 negro
preachers who exercise an enormous
influence over 9,000,000 negroes.
About 10 per cent of these have re
ceived more than a primary educa
tion and the remaining 27,000 are
ignorant men who are framing the
destinies of millions of their fellows."
The speaker praised highly the new
school for negroes which had been
opened at Durham N. C, by Dr.
James E. Shepard. This institution
offers industrial education, and also
is Intended as a training school for
colored preachers and teachers.
Storm Did Much Damage in Southern
St. Louis, Mo., June 10 The South
today is recovering from the effects
of the worst storm that has struck
it in years. Assuming proportions
of a cyclone, at times, and accom
panied by lightning, deep, heavy
thunder, hail and rain, the storm
unroofed houses, destroyed crops,
washed away railroad bridges and did
immense damage late yesterday and
during the night. It is still raging
today but not so severely.
Many buildings in this city were
unroofed and several burned.
Reports from Arkansas, Mississippi
and western Tennessee indicate that
much damage has been done by the
storm. The lowest estimate of the
loss thus far is $500,000.

Kx-President Theodore Roosevelt

after an absence of fifteen months
from the United States, fully a year
of which time he has spent "beyond
the pale of civilization" in the Jun

He will land In New York, and all
this week preparations have been
making to give "the first American"

you all about the forthcoming event.
Iu the meantime our readers, as well
as the balance of the world, will be
interested in the arrangements, and
the following particulars are printed
for their edification. At the same
time they will accentuate the belief

the public has manifested so univer
