The Annual Gcrtnau.
L'NIVERSITl' OF VIRGINIA, June 12.?
Special.?This was faculty day in the cora
mencement week of the University of Vir?
ginia, and the address before the faculty
was delivered in the auditorium at 11
o'clock by the Hon. J. L. M. Curry. of
Richmond.
He discussed the general theme of "L.iw
and Liberty." Here'are some of the se'nti
ments expressed in his chaste and able
speech:
FREE GOV1-RNMENT.
Liberty, if we mean capaeity for free
government, ls the due and right of disci
plined, enlightened cltizenship. It wouid "
be ooth absurd and criminal to bestow
seJf-government on Cuba, the Philippines,
Turkey or Sedan. * ? Liberty :s the
highest and nob'.cst reward bestowed on
mental and moral development. Liberty
and equality are prizes to be 'won. most
dlfficult to be won and preserved; Ohe
more so by the dangerous error that
all men are bom free and equal. * * All
men are created equal is a generalizatii n,
nuc true historically, politically, ndividual
ly, ethnologically, in Heaven or in earth.
Gov.ernmen.ts derive their just potvers from
the consent of the goverasd, if put in
practi.e would upturn every government
Oil earth. No miJi consent was ever ask?
ed or had. Only a selected portion wus
ever privileged to represent society. * *
The experienee of the wise dictates a
sharp limitation to franchise. Suffrage of
light beionys to those Oest able to guard
and promote the pubiic welfare.
X Bl = RO PROBLE.M.
Touching on the negro problem the
speaker declared that every considera?
tion of justice, humanity. self-preserva- !
tion, matcrial prosperity, demands that .
the State, by wise and liberal provision,
shall secure the proper education . t the
'itegro. * * * We are tether ; to the \
lowest stratum of society, and ::' we do ]
t:ot lift it up it will drag us down to the ',
neth rmost bell of poverty aud degrada- ]
tion. * * *
Reverting again to our present duty,
?the speaker urged that whiU keep::.;:
fragrant and perpetual the deed's and
principles of '.1 and '65, we sh >uld not
seek to revive dead issues. Why ar
ray ourselves in medieyal armor to
wage a hopeless struggie against In
ternal improvements. sounil money or
manifest destiny, or more important
still, why a vain sulcid'al attempt to
bring the death to life?
IT IS "OCT.S.
This government is ours. We are a
part anu parcel of it. What page of
history, prior to '61, is not illumined by
our deeds? ** Why renounce pr.v.leges,
honors, rewards, beuetits, to gr ,.
way to darkness, poverty und obscurlty,
to read epitaphs of departed greatn - ?.'
Tho war between the States deciminated
our population :;n<i wealth, crlpplied u.^
ln the terrible work of rehabilltation, but
we still possess elements of succes d
greatness, which should be tur:: ! to?
wards the sunrlse, disciplined with high
purpose and deathless resolve. * *
By the loglc of events, our eountry has
been swopt into the possession and sov
ereignty o? pacific terrltory^ and peo
ples _ * ? and it w ? u d '.. the su
premest folly in the South, a criminal
abhegation of responsibili: , ; and dutles,
not to assert our right ta partlcipation
in the meeting and management_of ques
tions and problems, which are :i >t likely
to be too well solved, even with fhe best
contributions from every State and sec?
tion.

sociation of Alumni t 10k place at 3
o'clock, and the reception to alumni and
