As I lie streams of the lilue litdge

ceaseless streams of humanity have
enricheil ami glut ilieil I lie annals of

the phrase -a good Stale to move'

changed to reail, 'The Old North

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

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

coast between the whites and Chi

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

achieved in these circumstances
and surroundings. Nor has nor

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

for education since the war has not

amount the North has ill that time
raised and expended for the sunt
