Rev. Dr. B. F. Lee, editor of the Christian Recorder , the organ of the A. M. E. Church, who was for a number of years President of the Wilberforce University, said: "I think that there is a spirit of unrest among colored people in that they are losing confidence in the management of these institutions.

persons of their own race could fill the position equally as well or better. The teachings of religion will never allow any one race to be its own absolute and exclusive educator, much less the educator of all races."

Prof. E. A. Bouchett, a graduate of Yale College, who is professor in the Institute for Colored Youth in Philadelphia, said: "The day has long gone by when an educated colored man was looked upon in this country as a curiosity. All persons of intelligence agree that the Negro is capable of undergoing the most severe mental training with credit to himself and his alma mater . The success of the graduates of colored colleges as teachers is abundantly attested, especially in the South and West; so the exclusion from the professor's chair in his own alma mater cannot be defended by alleging lack of ability or deficient capacity."
