"Sow the Imi4 way of getting a right economic measure of North

Ktristi bctweeu North Carol lua and low i. They are Mb agricutiir.il
Stale.
"North Carolina ha ts.tnal square mile ami Iowa ,Vi,ntMi; North
Carolina baa nearly two million people; Iowa nearly two ami a quarter

a wonderful record to the everlasting glory of the North Carolina
school -master, school mistress, school agitator, ami to the nudyiiig
credit or an awakened people. 1 Ins w one of the most creditable chap
tera in the recent history of any commonwealth or of any country.
''So luut'h for these general item in the comparison. Now, let us
look at the imlustrial Uillerence between tltesetwo rural State. Sixty
four H-r eent. ot the person ho woik in North Carolinu work on
farm; forty -seven ier cent, iu Iowa. We have more farm workers in
North Carolina than they have in Iowa. Itnt iu trade nml IransiHirta
tion they have more ticrsons engaged than we have. In manufactures
each State has approximately the same Iowa having a few more. In
each State aUntl tiie same numlier are engaged iu domestic and H'roual
service. We have a few more servants than they have. Itnt iu pro
fcsnional service the lowans have many more. That is, they have more
lawyers, prenchcrs, doctors, editors, etc. The main facts are that in a
general way the number of x-isons engaged in manufacture are the
Maine in each State and the number engaged iu finning. They have a
few more worker iu factories anil in shops; we have more farmers and
farm laborers.
'Now to consider farming for a moment although we have more
farm workers and very nearly as large nn area, their farm product are
every year worth more than four times as much us our are w orth.
"Not only are their farm pnsluct worth more than four time ns
much as ours; hut their farm pros-rly is worth eight time a much as
ours. Our farm property has increased fifty er cent, in twenty years;
theiis hits increased one hundred and fifty icr cent. It is two and a
half times as great as it was twenty years ago.
"What ha caused this difference? We have rich html. Klsc our
Immigration Bureau and our Agricultural m-partincnt have many sins
of misstatement to answer for. We have a grealer diversity of soil
than the lowans. We are as near market a they are. We grow some
great staples that they cannot grow such its cotton and tobacco and I ice.
"The key to the dilfcrcuce i the elliciency iu labor.
"The average income of farm worker in North Carolina is $1 Hi a
year, urn iu Iowa ?l 1 a year. Iu other words a farm worker iu Iowa
makes, earns and gels nearly four times as much as a farm worker iu
North Carolina. Iu other words, he is four times us capable a man
four time as good at his business.
"Thai' the whole story. It' the dillerenee tat ween the men lie
hi ml the plows.
"Now, how have the lowans made their procrty eight time as
valuable a our, their farm products four time us valuable, and their
income for farm worker nearly four time a great as the income of
our farm workcrsf That i the lesson for lis to learn.
"Iu the tirst place they have letter men. Many of our farm w ork
er were slave. A trained w bile mail on an Iowa farm i U-tter than
an untrained negro on a North Carolina (arm. He is Is tlcr also than
an untrained white man on a North Carolina farm.
"They have trained their farmer. They have had agricultural
KchiHils, and they ure now having agriculture taught in the public
schools.
"This Uthe central secret of the whole dillerenee they have
trained their eople letter. They till the soil better; they know it
lietter: they use moK machinery; I hey use more intelligence.
"Our first duty then clearly is to train the man behind the plow.
If many of the men behind the plows in Norlh Carolina were slaves,
that is our misfortune a misfortune of our inheritance; but there is no
other way to remedy the matter than to train them. So long as the
ina n Is-lund the plow is untrained, the earth resents the insult and be
comes barren; and every untrained man U'hinil the plow makes the
soil of Norlh Carolina poorer make the Stale poorer make us all
pooler. i he old mistake of supposing that cheap labor i a Urn-lit.
"Here comes your opportunity you who an' the lirst generation
of incii iu North Carolina that ha had a chance to be trained to scien
tific agriculture. You have the high duly to make the man behind the
plow tin efficient man. Iu doing this you will do more than to add in
calculably to our wealth. You will bring also a Ix-ttcr view of life.
"Although the value of Iowa' farm products i more than four
times as great u the value of North Carolina' farm products, Iowa's
manufactured product are not twice us great a our. If the lowans
are four times us good farmers as we are, they ure not much better
manufacturers.
"And the average auuiiul wage ier hand in manufactures is only
little more than twice a much in Iowa iu in North Carolina. You
will notice that the farm woiker in Iowa get il 1 a year; the factory
worker only 108. Hut in North Carolina the factory worker gets I !Hi,
and the farm worker only llti. Yet every factory worker in Iowa
turns out a product aliout twice a valuable a the factory worker iu
North Carolina.
"Our manufactures have gone licynnd our agriculture iu value.
This ha happened only because we have had better trained men iu our
f factories, and better trained men to manage them.
"Now, gentlemen, what the lowan have done, we can do, mid
more -iu manufacture, iu agriculture, in the sum total of civilization;
and we can do it by the right training of men of all men, not of a few
only; and we ran do it no other way.
"And it is a pleasure to survey the prospect that lie before you
vou who make and who urolit bv such an institution as this. You
understand the right training to work to work with the hands. Ol
course no man can work iroerly with hi hand without working with
his brains and hi heart also. Labor by mere main strength, a mule or
a donkey enirine can do. Y our institution, therefore, comes right down
to the bottom of the problem of life iu North Carol ina. Oilier eoplc
may fool themselves, if they Mill care to do so. Some may think that
it is lietler to lie a iackleg law yer than a master cariieutcr. Some may
think tliut a lazy drone of a preacher is better than a good blacksmith.
Some mar think that a life of idleness, makes a gentlemen. Home may
think that to be an unproductive "prominent citizen" is better than to
make good split bottom chairs. Hut you know better. You have got
