inventor of logarithm, and that Sir
Charles Napier who has been called,
the acknowledged hero of a family of
heroes. And who has not felt his
blood run faster as he read of Luck
now. with its little ba;nd of Britons
and their women and children, hud
dled together. expecting every mom
ent to be overwhelmed by the hordes
of mutino ;u Sepoys. when
"Up spake a Scottish maiden,
With her ear upon the ground:
'Dinna ye hear it?--dinna ye hear it?
The pipes of Havelock sound'!"
Then. with what joy they listened,
''Louder. neare'r. fierce as vengeance,
Sharp and thrill as swords at strife.
Came the wild MacGregor's clan-call,
Stinging all the air to life."
In our own land. the Scotch and
the Scotch-Irish have shown them
selves worthy .descendants of their
valiant sires. From the border wars
with the French and Indians in Col
onial days. to the War with Spain,
and the pacification of the Phillip
pines, the 'Scotch and the Scotch
Irish have ever borne an honorable
part. It was a Scotchmap, a mem
ber ,of your own society. General Wil
liam Moultrie. and his handful of
heroic men, who, by the defeat of the
British fleet under Sir Peter Par
ker, irrevocably com-itted the Caro
linas to the cause of independence,
and it is well known in Charlotte that
a large proportion of the signers of
the Mecklenburg Declaration of Ii
dependence were of Scotch ' and
Scotch-Irish descent. It was a Scot
-who earried the victorious.* arms of
our country to the Capital of Mexico,
and to tell of even the most distin
auished of the Scotch -and Scotch
Irish who participated on both sides
in our Civil War would make any ad
dress far too long for an occasion
such as this.
In their native land the* Scotts
have carried the industries based on
their-natural resources to the highest
degree of perfection. Scotch woolen
goods are unsurpassed by those of
any other country, and the Scotch
and th'e Seotch-Itish in Ireland have
set the standard of the world in the
myanufacture of linens. The iron and
steel industry of Scotland. founded
at an early date, has been highly de
veloped. Shiip building has thrived
in Scotland since the time: of The
Errne. and, in the present day, the
highest development of Scotch in
dustry is found in the shipyards on
the Clyde, and the Scoteh-Irish ship
yards at Belfast. .From t.hese yards
have come a great part of the mer
chant and war fleets of Britain, and,
in the Lusitania, they have their
cerowning achievement. .In Ameriea,
- the Seotch and the Scoteh-Irish have
had a wider field for the development
of industrial leadership. All the
world knows what Andrew Carne
Fg ie and his associates, largely Scotch
men and men of Scotch descent,
achieved in the building up of the
iron and steel industry about Pitts
burg. and Alexander G-raham Bell,
the inventor of the telebhone, is a
man of Scoteh ancestry.
Niot even the briefest reviewv of
Seotch achievement would he com
plete without some reference to the
financial genius of the race which
produced William Paterson, . th.e
foundet of the ~Bank of England.
The banking system of Scotland has
n intained an enviable reputation
or, soundness, and is pointed .to to
day \by some of the advocates of
banking and currency reform as the
model upon which the system of this
country should be based, and I have'
no doubt tl#t the high reputation of
the banks ofiOharleston is due, in
no - small measure, to influences in
'their managemenlt attributable to
t.he men of Scotch ~ancestry who
have~ from time to time been mem
bers of this society. The fiscal sys
'tem of our government was devised
by a man of Scot.eh descent--Alex
anrler Hamilton-and it stands to
day, with few modifications, as .a
monument to his genius. Not only in
fiscal affairs. but in shaping the en
ire policy of oar government and
in molding the character of its in
stitutions. have men of Scotish bloodI
ecen influential. No less than eight

or Scotch-Irish descent. The list in

e There is a possibility citizen as
yet, patches from Amierica prove
there is some misunderstanding there.
Lord Fairfax would not become en

a peer of the United Kingdom, but of

Only sixteen Scottish peers sit in
