gcntlomen, thero was presented to Lee
Camp last night a life-like portrait of
the late John E. Ech?la, brigadier-general
In the Confoderate sorvico. and a warrior
and statesman of distinction.
The occasion was a most auspicious
one. The hall was well filled with thoso
who had gathered and there were In at?
tendance nearly the entire State Legisla?
ture, tho Hon. Edward Echols, the Hon.
John Lamb, and many others. The pre?
sentation address waa mado by Captain
James Bumgardner, of Staunton, and the
portrait was received on behalf of the
camp by the Hon. J. Taylor Ellyeon,
Brief but appropriate remarks were made
by several others. One of the inoet in?
teresting features of the evening was the
reading of d letter from General Eppa
Hunton, who could not bo present.
For the few moments which preceded
the oponirig of tbo exercises those already
In the hall spent the time admiring the
handsome portraits upon tho walls or
chatting among themselves, Quite a dis?
tinguished company woe present. Per?
haps two-thirds of tho entire membership
of tho State Legislature occuplod spe?
cially reserved seats, Quito a number
of ladle? wero In the audience.
After the transaction of certain minor
matters tho camp, which was called to
order about 8:80 o'clock by Commander
James P. Smith, deferred until the next
meeting any business not of vital Inter?
est, and proceeded to the important event
of the evening. On behalf of the Portrait
Committee, Commandor Laughton an?
nounced the presentation of a life-like
portrait of Brigadier-General John E.
Echols, the distinguished colonel of the
Twenty-seventh Regiment, Stonewall Bri?
gade, who, alike In war and in peace, oc?
cupied the foremost position among, his
countrymen. The donor ' was the son of
the noted officer, the Hon. Edward
Echols, formerly Lieutenant-Governor
of Virginia, who, In the presentation, was
to bo repre?ented by Captain iBumgard
ner, himself one of the distinguished

Brother Commander and Comrades of R.
B. Lee Camp, No. 1:
Kor your work of collecting and pre?
serving In this gallery the portraits and
busts of the soldiers of the South, gen?
erations yet unborn will accord you
thanks and blessings. _.,_?.,
The task of placing#upon Imperishable
record the true character and achieve?
ments of the Confederate as a soldier Is
?well-nigh completed. ' .
The associated task of vindicating the
Justice of his cause and the Integrity of
his motives Is approaching its complet on.
In the not distant future tho verdict
rendered by the universal intelligence of
mankind will be returned and entered
on the record of final and eternal Judg?
ment; that the Confederate soldier was
Justified, upon the same principle and for
the same reasons which Justified the
barons in demanding Magna Charta,
which Justified the men who rallied
around the "Patriotic Tell" in driving
tho Austrian tyrant from the mountains
of Switzerland, which justified our fore?
fathers in proclaiming their independ?
ence and In winning It with tholr red
right band. _
CRUSHED BY NUMBERS.
That the failure of his cause no more
demonstrates Its Injustice than the right
to partition Poland is established, because
the patriotic heroes who resisted It were
crushed by tho countless and overwhelm?
ing hordes of Russia and Austria com?

The result of this beneficent work will
remain, long after the last survivor of
the "Loot Cause" ha? gone to his re?
ward, and our children's children will
come here as .pilgrims to a martyr's
shrine and will '"look" upon this picture
and upon this and will "see" in eaoh "a
combination and a form Indeed to give
the world assurance of a man."
More clearly than the written chronicle
of his mighty deeds will that pictured
record of his features show why
"The foe had better ne'er been born
That gets In Stonewall's way."
Brief contemplation of the features
there portrayed will servo to show why
this caino has chosen the name ot R. L.
Lee. ana why that picture occupies Its
exalted and pre-eminent place in this
galaxy of heroes.
I have been selected to perform the
task of asking you, my comrades, to take
Into your charge ana keeping this por?

MAN TO BE HONORED.
Major-General John Echols, tho origi?
nal of this portrait, had many and high
claims to bo honored by his co-tempo
rarieai and to be remembered and rever?
enced by his survivors, In the course
of a long and exceptionally active and
busy life he did many things and aooom
pllshed many results, of which men are
usually proud, and Justly proud'; but from
tho close of the war to the end of hie
life he ever claimed and regarded as
hie chief and paramount claim to the
rospeot and estoem of his countryman
tho fact that ho was a loyal, faithful and
devoted Confederate soldier.
Ait the outset of the war John Echols
had reached tho age of physical and
He he/1 achieved distinction In civil
life as a lawyer, a statesman and an
orator and ocoupled a commanding posi?
tion in the esteem and confidence of
his fellow-cltlzons. He was a conspiou
ous and influential member of that me?
morial convention whloh passed tho ordi?

tho "clash of resounding arms," but ho
enlisted upon deliberate reflection In the
light of full historical and polltcal knowl?
edge, upon tha convtotlon of a Judgment
trained and matured by legal and polit?
ical study and "experience, that the South
was entitled to stand, and was called
upon to stand In defense of Its eacreil
antj guaranteed rights, which were not
only threatened, but actually assailed
by tho acts of the Foderai government,
and that every Southerner was bound
by the highest obligation of duty which
can be Imposed upon human bolngs, to
bring to the aid of our cause every
resource of means, courage ability unii
endurance with which God had endowed
As a distinguished graduate of the Vir?
ginia Military Institute, John Echols
gave ?? tho service the great advantage
of a sdentine military education and

and endurance, an eiiorcgy that doiiud

To what extent the military skill and

even approximate accuracy.
Lieutenant-Colonel Echols commanded
the Twenty-seventh Virginia Regiment
at the battle of Mantissas. I am very
far from meaning to moke an invidious
comparison between any one, or another,
ot the five regiments which formed either
in Une of march or in lino of battle, a
compact and unbroken mass from early

that the Twenty-seventh was numeri?

greeted, with, applauso. When ho hud con?
cluded, eovurnl others had u few words
to say, but lii no Instance was tho speech I

to the valor and worth to Gen. Echols
as citizen and soldier. Among those who

Colonel Ople, Senator Gould and Captain
Keed, of Mecklenburg.
It was tho purpose of General Eppa
Hunton to bo present, but the critical Ill?
ness at Warrenton of his brother kept
him aw.oy, To the camp, however, he
addressed a lettor which was greeted
with Instant applause. He told much that
was interesting about General Euliols, and
"I rejoice that tho walls of our oamp
will bear his picture as an Inspiration
to patrlotlo devotion to duty by tho
coming ge"nerntlon of Virginia youths. He
never forgot his love for the 'dear lost
oauso,' He never entertained or expressed
pleasure In the failure Of a cause for
which he so freely risked his life, and for
Ita Hiiecoss would so cheerfully have laid
It down. All honor to the memory of
tills Confederate horo. May his memory
over bo an inspiration to his descend?
ants to virtuous and patriotic deeds."
