Norfolk, Va., June 28.-Virginia
and South Carolina are united by a
new tie. It- is all due to the great sue
cess of "South Carolina day," The
two States have ever been closest in
the sisterhood, and today marks -a
new era, not in statesmanship, not in
martial achievement, but in personal
contact that the inspiration received

The ceremonies incident to "South
Carolina day" celebration at the
Jamestown exposition were attended
today by a crowd of enthusiastic
South Carolinians which filled the
lower floor of the large auditorium.
The exerecises were most auspi
ciens, and the exchange of greetings
between South Carolina and Virginia
was the distinguishing feature.
The exercises were called to order
on time by Capt. Wm. E. Gonzales,
chairman of the South Carolina com
mission, who, in a very happy man
ner, felieitated the South Carolin
ians upon being here at this time
among the hospitable Virginians. He
-then presented Goqv. Ansel, who, it
was announced, would preside over
"At Home in Virginia's House."
Gov. Ansel was given an ovation.
Capt. Gonzaless stiatement that at
the evening reception.South Carolina
would be "at home in Virginia's
house" was also cheered heartily.
The enthusiasm was thrice renewed
before he could speak. Gov. Ansel
appears to be growing upon the peo
ple of South Carolina an on public
occasions such as this they hail him
right heartily. He spoke briefly but
feelingly and in an impromptu man
ner, which showed his appreciation
all the more.
After expressing his thanks for the
warm welcome Gov. Ansel said he
br in Virginia the

hertoth .Carolinian for
Virginiai e there are many
sad and sacred spots in Virginia dear
to South Carolinians. He brought
the greeti.ngs of the State of South
Carolina to the commission for its
great achievement-a work which had
'been so highly complimented on all
sides. This exhibit shows what South
Carolina can do, what she has done
and what she will do. (Cheers.) He
came to bid all welcome to this feast
and his only regret is that every
South Carolinian could not be pres
He then with pleasure introduced
''the chief magistra te of the greatest
State in the UJnion, except South
Carolina, which is her' peer, Gov.
Claude E. Swanson of Virginia.''
Gov. Swanson also was given *an
ovation. He is a man of striking
presen'ee and of charming personal
itv. He is a trained speaker, an elo
quent man and a Virginian.
Our Militia Complimented.
H'e first complimented the South
Carolina militia, saying that he was
proud that they could yell as lustily
as did their fathers on Virginia soil
in days gone by. There have always
.been close ties and warm and loving'
friendships between Virginia and
'South Carolina. In the days of the
organizatio.n of the government Vir
ginia was large and South Carolina
'was small. Virginia gave to Suoth
Carolina the right to one of her seats
in the congress, for she knew that the
place would be filled with brilliance
Gov. Swanson spoke ve1y eloquent
ly of the place South Carolina andI
Virginia have held side by side in the
aristocracy of States. They have
been alike always. lHe spoke also of
South Carolina's achievements in
war, in literature, in seience, in all
things. He complimented highly the
South Carolina exhibit. He closed
with a beautiful tribute to the life of
Calhoun, which is worth more to the
State of South Carolina as a hertiage
than a great fortune.
Gov. Ansel, after thanking Gov.
Swanson for his eloquent references
to South Carolina, presented the pres
ident of the association, Hon. St.
In a graceful speech of a very few
minutes Mr. Tucker quite made a per
sonal friend of every South Carolm-l
ian in the auditorium. He told how,
as a youth, he had been stirred by the
mateilless eloquecelC of William C.
Preston in a speech which caused V1r
.m ; her ie: ermination and
Viail would noi t turnh her arms
against South Carolina. (Cheers.)
He, too, complimented the South
Carolina militia upon its fine appear
ance and spoke beautifully of those
South Carolinians whom he had seen
in Richmond many years ago, men
who had made glorious many a
stream, many a hill, many a field in
old Virginia. South Carolina has al
ways been regarded as quick on the
trigger, but who would not be quick
to resent a wrong?
Hampton's Name Cheered.
He spoke of the greatest Carolin
ian, Wade Hampton. Not so great in
intellect as Calhoun, for no Ameri
can 'has been so great, but Hampton
was greater in all in his matchless
self-control. (Cheers.) The exhibit of
South Carolina is the greatest of all
in the States' exhibit building, but
far greater than the exhibit itself is
the expression of friendship from
South Carolinians. The white flower
of friendship will add fragrance and
color .to the beautiful b9uquet which
has been brought to Jamestown by
many sister States.
In reply to a statement made by
Mr. Gonzales, President Tucker said
that there was nothing -at all nailed
down, and for the boys of the Sec
ond regiment to "take everything in
sight, even the pretty Virginia girls,
if you can get them."
He concluded by saying that South
Carolina outranks all others States
because she has preserved to a better
degree the ideals of former . days
with the pluck and progress of today.
The Military Features.
The military features of "South
Carolina Day" was a great success
despite . the weather. When the
troops fromed for the parade there
was a heavy shower, but the blue
jackets from the war vessels,in Hamp

do honor to the State of South Caro

be taken for granted th at the proud
people are beginning to re.alize how
foolish has been their oppositiol- to
this light and frivolous, but far from
bitter or unkind, opera. A desire to
be taken seriously at all times and in
.all the phases of their national life
has led the Japanese co extremes.
If Japan is really to join tfhe in
ner circle of civilized powers she will
learn long before -she is accepted
as an equal in all forms of activity
that she will, justly or unjustly,
have to conform in essentials to Wes
tern standards of manners and mor
als in home and social life and in
business. As best she could, she has
already attempted to put on the outer
grab of European and American civi
lization, but it is only natual that
the Eastern ways underneath should
be constantly coming into view. Be
fore the Japanese can secure an equ
al footing with the other great na
tions of the world in the struggle for
achievement in the higher life they
will be lauzhed at and even scorned
to an extent exasperating to a
proud ,and brave race. They cannot
escape the ordeal. Every nation that
has won its way to honor and esteem
has passed through it.
