CHAPTER 122. AN ACT TO ESTABLISH A REFORM AND MANUAL TRAIN- ING SCHOOL FOR COLORED YOUTHS. Whereas it appears to the General Assembly that there are in this State many negro youths between the ages of seven and six- teen years who violate the criminal law, and that while such youths should be detained and punished and taught the doctrine of religion, good morals, and how to work, it would be to the best interest of such youths and criminals that they be not associated with older and more hardened criminals, but that they should be kept separate therefrom : The General Assembly of North Carolina do enact:
Maintenance. All moneys received by the trustees by private gifts, donations, or otherwise shall be expended in the establishment, operation, and maintenance of the school for the training and moral and industrial development of such delinquent children, and in securing homes for them; and in case the trustees receive or are allowed any State aid for said school, it shall be Pub.19 their duty to duly account for all moneys so received by them and to make report of the manner of its expenditure and of the work done by them as hereinafter more particularly provided for.
