These schools are situated lu 
the very heart of the black 
belts of these States, and can 
 * eiMily reached by the raauy. 
thonsands ardu'nd them. ' 

The largest equipment is at - 
Claflin University, Orangeburg, 
S. C, where as miiny as- 24 dif- 
'erent trades and industries are 
}eing taught to nearly one 
thoQsand students. These in- 
dustries includes such trades 
as carpentry, masonry, black- 
smithing, shoemaking, tailor- 
ing, plastering, painting, print- 1 
ing, wheelwrighting, electricnl ! 
and m chauical eiigiueeriiig I 
'or the boys, and cooking,] 
dressmaking and all lities ot 
domestic economy for the girls. 
So eager are these -Negro stu- 
dents to take advantage of the 
opportunities the school ofiVrs 

•200 because there was no room 

to accommodate thorn j 

When these facts cane to tlu-i 
attention -of Mr. Carnegie, he • 
promptly $14,000 for a boys' 
dormitory, with the provi-sioii 
that an equal amount be raised 
locally, ihe whole school at 
once began to heip. The stu- 
dents picked cotton during va- 
cation, sold eggs and cliickens 
—they were their own chickens 
— and in various other wavM j 
raised over one thouisar.d dol- 
lars. The condition- Imve been 
met, and the builcJi^iig is now 
completed and crov.'fied to its 
utmost capacity. 

A distinctive feature of the 
work of the society is teaching 
Negro farmers. In the very 
nature of the case no work the 
society is doing is more impor- 
tant than this. The great mass 
of th© Negro people must earn 
their living from the soil, aud 
the society is training them to 
do this work, and do it well. 

Under the old method farm- 
ing among the Negroes has nei- 
ther been attractive nor remu- 
nerative. Land has been wasted 
and ruined, much valuable 
time lost, and as a result of 
the advance system, the farmer 
inevitably comes out in debt at 
the end of the year. As a re- 
sult Negro farmers iu large 
numbers are becoming discour- 
aged and are leaving the coun- 
try and flocking to the cities 
with the hope of bettering their 
conditions. Colonized iu alleys 
and unsanitary sections of the 
ISrge cities, they naturally be- 
came an easy prey to tubercii- 
losis and similar diseases. 

The schools of farming at 
Clark University, Atlanta, Ga., 
and Gilbert Industrial College, 
Baldwiu, La., aim to set a draw- 
back to this movement from the 
country to the city fay teaching 
the best methods of up-to-date 
farming. 

In addition to the 
course at Clark University, the 
Superiutendont of the farm has 
been holding farmer's institutes 
throughout the State in order 
to help and instruct the large 
number of Negro farmers, who 
could in no other wav be reach- 
ed.

PRESIDENT TAFT SHOULD BE 
RENOMINATED^ 

\ye have no patience with the element 
of our party which seeks to prevent the 

renomination of Prcsiaent Talt.- No 
President has done more for the Coun- 
try than he. He is the one real pro- 
gressive member of the Republican 
party. Tfie man who accomplishes 
things for the good of the great com- 
mon people, is the man who does the 
people good. President Taft has ac- 
complished great good and more pro- 
gressive- legislation has been parsed dur- 
ing President Taft s administration than 
has been adopted hy any other adminis- 
tration of recent years. 

Diiring President Tafl's administra- 
tion, the Sherman Anti-Tru^t Act ha- 
been enforced, three score monster cor- 
poratioas have beeli prosecuted, the gov- 
ernment has succeeded in dissolving the 
Standard Oil and the.. Tobacco Trusts, 
the Postoffice Department, for the first 
time in its history, has been put upon ?. 
.paying basis, his judicial appointment. 
iia . c l^een taken out of politics, and 
lucket-shops and get-rich-quick con- 
cerns have .been forced on: of cxist- 
ehce. Vv'e are not attempting here t . 
enumerate all the things accomplished 
ly President Taft during his ^minis- 
tration, but we only wish to say thai 
President Taft has done things for the 
-ood of the people. He has b^en Presi- 
dent of all of the people without regard 
to politics, race or creed. 

We are opposed to any person benig 
Prc.idc-.it for a third term. One of the 
greatest friends onr race has ever had 
was General Grant. lie was one of the 
greatest Pxesidents and greatest soldiers 
tiiat v.e ever had, yet the American peo- 
,le wonid not. agree that even so great 
a man a s 'General  5rant should be nomi- 
nated for third term. George Washing- 
ton, the ^father of our country, refused 
to accept a third term because he feared 
tliat this might lead to monarchy and to 
kings. Siirely the advice of President 
W ashington should be followed. 

We are^ opposed to the recall of 
judges. The greatest protection that 
our race and the American people have 
Vi.in.t'Ti» . iriOi^tt .. anri .. wf rire 'n fai :  ¥ '^^ 



a judiciary, which is fearless and will 
decide the law as the law is written, and 
we do not believe it safe or wise to sub- 
ject a 'udge, whp fearlessly"decides what 
is right, to recall because his position 
might not suit an exacting or prejudiced 
people. W-e have the fullest confidence 
in the pesple. We believe ^hat the voice 
of the peopli^fis the voice of God, Init we 
all know that sometimes people, in their

The Weekly News, announces today 
the candidacy of Hon. Richard C. Stoll 
for delegate to the Republican National 

Coiivcmion from the Seventh Congres- 
sional District. ^Ir. .Stoll is a warm 
supporter of President Taft ^. for re- 
I election. ^ 

^Ir. Stoll is one of thcs best friends 
thb colored man in Fayette County has 
ever had and has always been a Repub- 
lican, supporting at all times the nonti- 
i;ecs of Republican Conventions. "SIt. 
S.nW liclong.s to the celebrated Stol! 
family who have always been Republi- 
i"'ns, his father, who is now dead, Mr. 
R. P. Sto'l, '•(•ing during his life one "of 
the leading Republicans of the South in 
the days when' there were very few 
white Reptiblicans in Kentucky. 

Mr. Richard C. Stoll has never been a 
! candidnt j f i " ?.v.y off '-c and as the posi- 
tion of dslegate does n-.t pay anj-thing it 
seems to tlie \vrit(.r that now is 
a good lime to reward him for his faith- 
ful services in behalf of the Republican 
party. Mr. Stoll was one of the warm- 
est supporters of the Fusion ticket last 
fall, is a great friend of Senator Brad- 
ley's and ha^a-host of friends who will 
)insist that he be sent as a delegate to 
Chicago. 

It is understood that the colored Taft 
Club to be organized at the U. B. F. 
Hall Monday night will endorse Mr. 

Stoll and mar.-- of the colored voters of 
this district are for him. 




■ r.i' ' » 



all hours of the day and night. The call' 
for the mtfiting is signed by such well- 
known colored Republicans as - 
- PORTER JACKSON, \ 
PAT McCANN, " • 

T. J. WILSON. 
LUCIEN C. SMITH, \ 
HOWARD M. ~MILLEff, 
JOHN T. CLAY. 
ED. CHENAULT. 
GEORGE RUSSELL, 
REV. L. N.. CHEEK, 
GEORGE H. MINNIS, 
SENATOR R. F. BELL, 
and others. All of the above men are 
enthusiastic supporters of President 
Taft and they state they find the senti- 
ment of the colored voters almost unani- 
mous for President Taft and they wish 
to so organize the Taft supporters that 
hundreds of them will go to the Fayette 
County Cqnvention on April 6 and vote 
for Mr. Taft and M.r Stoll as a dele- 
gate. • " 

An invitation is extended to all. col- 
ored Republicans to he present Monday 
night and place their names on the 
Club's register. Several speeches will 
be made and a general good time is ex- 
pected. Don't fail to come if you are 
interested in such good Republicans as 
President Taft and Mr. StolL Taft but- 
tons will be distributed at this liieeting.

I would prefer that your cfabffldftaad

justified In allowing my personal In- 
clinations to dissuade me from doing 
what I can to forward the great. prin- 
ciples for which Mr. Roosevelt is the 
most conspicluous exponent, the ulti- 
ir.ate adoption of which is absoli:tely 
ihsential, in my opinion, to the pres- 
ervation of our democratic institutions 
and to a restoration of real control by

S. H. Dudley, the leading com- 
edian of the "Doctor lieau Froaa 
liostou Company,' "or better knowa 
at the Smart Set, is inausuratias 
a scheme whichi if it proves saie- 
ce»sful, will Oe of lasting benefit 
lo the colored performers of the 
ceuutr: . especially those in vaude- 
ville. . 

Mr-V_ udley's plan is to eBtablish 
a waeei or ciicuit of colorea the- 
attrb li' th.' cities of the 

country, and likewise some^of the 
:»iiiaUer ones, or, in fact, anywhere 
It is^.MI|orth while. 

Now that the N«gro has "arriv^ 
ea" or is ne '.auger an exp^rimen, 
out eblabiished fact iu 4heat 
ricals, the white managers all over 
the country are turning him down 
»t every opportunity and doing all 
they can to discourage him. 

With few exceptions, sueh as 
Bert, Williams. Fiddler and She!- 
ton. Aveiy and xiart, auii per- 
lormers cf that class, tiiere are 
pracl^icaily no Ncgto performers • 
able to secure work over the biff 
time, though thefe are numbers 
capable of doing credit t© thea- 
ac; ve - 2.:;d tf^c race upon any stage 
in tiie l«Hd. 

No one is belter :ieqtja.inted with 
these fa.ft'* tnau Mr Dudley hii&- 
self , uhd with this state of affairs' 
in view* he is trying to fnniisk 
means of livelihood for his fellow 
workers. 

It is said by those in position to 
know, that Mr. Dudley already 
has several hundred thousand dol- 
lars to put in the work, and with 
proipects of that much more.- 

We as a race should all pull for 
the siiccess of the venture, and do 
all we can in every way to make it 
a  huge success. 

Thwe are many Negroes, espe- 
ciallv in the Sentfa, who are amply 
able TO finance such a venture as 
this and it goes without saying 
that if properly managed, this 
business is one of the most lucra- 
tive in which a person can engage. 

It is to be hoped tbat Mr. Dud- 
ley will receive the unstinted sup-, 
port and encouragement of his en- 
tire race in his efforts to better 
very deserving class men en^

business concerns and'report just what's 
being done in Lexington along the Imsi 
ness line. It scerus that all of our rep 
resemative Icadhig business concerns 
have suffered at times from various 
causes. It is not our object to discuss 
those - causes but deem it sufficient to 
89y that ho one business has been bene- 
fited loitg at-the expense of the other. 
In fact all have seemingly lost together, 
the trade having been withheld from 
both or all and given directly or in- 
directly to parties who make no special 
Md ior it.

Ii^ps the leading  regro business cni^ccrn 
in Lexington, not only here but it is a 
worthy representative of Negro business 
acumen generally. 

The News reporter was shown over 
the entire premises which including the 
Chenault coal yard, comprises about two 
acres right in the heart of the best busi- 
ness locality in the city for a colore.'i 
concern. 

The big stable is well appointed: the 
hearse, carriages and other vehicles are 
lifted to the second floor on an elevator. 
£verj-thing there was clean and in order. 
The oats and corn cribs were well

is doing an excellent work among the 
poor of our people He was recently 
appointed by Mayor Cassidy as special 
physician to respond to the charity call 
work among colored people. The News 
sees some slight res-ogni:ion given tht 
colored people by the present ailuiinis- 
tratioti in making this appointment but 
we fear that all the calls uf charity fur 
colored people will lind their way rinallj. 
to the Colored city phi'sician, whose field, 
constitutes at least half of the pauper 
sick of the city as against four white 
city physicians for the same work

Prof. G. P. Rus.-^e!!, su) ervisor of col 
ored schools, returned Tuesday from 
Rus.sellville where he had gone to join 
the family in burjing their father. Rev 
Green Russell who died last Friday of a 
brief ilhuss as a result of n par dy tic 
stroek. The elder Russell died at the 
ripe age of 84 years. He was the father 
of ten children, seven of whom were 



sistcd of : Stewed peas, 3 cents ; bread, 
2 slices, 1 cent; bean soup. 1 cent; 
vegetable soup, 1 cCfit; potatoes and 
gravy, 2 cents; GrafaanK wafers, 1 cent; 
ham sandwich, 2 cents; milk and bread, 
1 centj^ cocoa, 3 cents; cinnamon rolls,

It seems that the school lunch counter 

has met with great success coming as 
it did *o fill a real need in that it pro- 
vides for the children a substitute for 
c^hcap penny candy and sour pickles 
from the corner groceries. It is esti- 
mated that heretofore perhaps 70 per 
cent of the children came to the school 
daily without regularly prepared break- 
fast, depending on w-hat they might pur- 
.-hase at the groceries to sustain them 
throughout the day. Theti there are 
many children who are unable to relish 
cariy breakfast and from 'the penny 
lunch counter can now secure nourish- 
ing food at any hour suttatte to their 
!u-.edi. Prof; Rtissdl has data to show 
that during the last 60 days the actual 
increase in weight of the pupils of his 
school has averaged far above normal 
and the innovation has brought about a 
healthier and more cheerful aspect in 
the school rooms and discipline and 
study have been made easier and more 
agreeable.
