  Other sources ............................ ........... 46,907.11

  (c) If this fund had been divided on the race basis, I think a fair
division would be as follows:
33 1- 3 per cent of 19.3 per cent of $650,740, local tax- $41,864 (Corporation.)
33 1-3 per cent of literary fund of $100,534-----   33,511
3.7 per cent of $198,548, State appropriation- ----- 7,346 (Negro property.)
33 1-3 per cent of 19.3 per cent of $198,548, State ap-
  propriation---------------------------------- 12,773 (Corporations.)

33 1-3 per cent of 19.3 per cent of $208.018, bonds-- 13,381 (Corpora property.)
    Total due to Negroes -------------------$429, 197
  I have shown before that North Carolina is likely spending only
$402,658 on her Negro schools. This leaves $26,539 of the North
Carolina fund which never reached the Negro in 1908.
  Third. Finally, is the Negro public school of Georgia a burden on
the white taxpayer of that State?
  (a) On page 397 of the State Superintendent's report for 1907 the
following is set forth as the school fund of that year:
  Balance, 1906  .......................................   $ 180,190.33
  State appropriation ................................  1,744,461.47
  Convicts  ...........................................  199,659.71
  Local tax ........................................... 750,577.59
  Other sources .....................................  136,789.36

  Total ............................................. $3,011,678.46*
  (b) On page 8, Comptroller's report, 1907, the sources of the State
school appropriation are given as follows:
  Poll tax ............................................. $ 275,000.00
  Liquor .............................................. 242,000.00
  Fertilizer ........................................ 21,000.00
  Oil .................................................          1,600.00
  Shows ..............................................         9,616.00
  *The total assessed value of all property in Georgia is $699,536,079, divided as fol-
lows: White, $540,073,885; Negro, $25,904,822, or 3.7 per cent; corporation, $123,588-
172, or 19.1 per cent.
