R. II. Fitzhugh, General Manager of 
the Colored Orphan Industrial Home, 
of Lexington Keatucky, aod iswell 
kaowB for lite loag aad a w l a a t labors 
in behalf of the race, argues at length 
in tbe Lexington Standard that the 
Negro of tbe South, except for the so- 
cial barrier and its natural effects, **i8 
already asfreeajid uabaaadodnaany 
maa ia tha land. Aa aa agriaaltarlst 
or skilled aaeliaaic '^ he says, "he has 
not only an open, unobstructed field, 
but his eervioes are in suob unavoid- 
able demand that, to a very great ex- 
tent he coatrols the scale of wages 
aadar wUeh ha is employ^" .He 
also aigoes that ••it Isoaly the ▼idoas 
and idle of tbe race who get into 
trouble.*" It must be admitted thai 
tbe South is the natural home of tbe 
N« gro. Those who urge bim to scat- 
ter over the Tarious States of tbt* 
North aad Soath overlook the fact 
that his industrial opportunities are 
almost entirely eliminated in these 
far-away sections, except in a few iso- 
lated instances With the superior 
opportunities portrayed by Captain 
Fitzhugh, there should ba a MuM
