Alabama’s Governor on the Negro Problem
Montgomery, Ala., April 29.—Gov. W. J. Samford, in a telegram to a New York paper today, says:
“The South does not object to the efforts of philanthropists to assist the negro by education or otherwise. The state generously disperses the educational fund between the races. The Southern people have the kindest feeling for the negro and have no objection to any aid he may receive to better his condition. The negro problem is necessarily largely committed to the white people of the State, and I doubt if it can be successfully undertaken by those who live hundreds of miles away and are not informed of existing conditions. Misdirected effort might retard rather than advance his condition.”
