Infirmities of age and wounds caus

of South Carolina:
Columbia, S. C., January 6, 1909.
Realizing that my time of active
service is drawing to a close, and can-'
eeiving it to be my duty to retire from
office, I hereby tender my resignation
as chief justice of the supreme court~
of South Carolina, to take effect April
With love for all the people of our
State, yours truly,

He was an honor to the highest of

sleeping with the armor of war buck

The ground red beneath a cloudless
* Each moment the darkness fled aid
the splendor of the dawn increased.
TIhe sun was not yet risen. But the
east blushed with a roseate purple,
and the morning star was melting
into the depths.
im was then that Grant ordered his
mighty army to charge the army of
Northern' Virginia, that incomparable
army which never had, and never will
have, an equal.
I was thrilled by the startling peal
of the bugles, the roar of cannon, the
rattle of small arms and the shouts
and7 groans of the men.
'Oh this bloody occasion was 'when
our hero behaved with such gallantry.
In the fatal charge 13,000 of Grant's
nen were shot down in 30 minutes,
while the- great Lee lost three hun
ed. Grant ordered another charge,
erra- his grand army refused to move.
For three days his dead and wounded
lay 'whe-re they were shot down be
-fore he would ask for a flag of truce
~to bury his dead thousands.
During the four long, weary y ears
of the war our hero wais shot' up more
than any man, to survive, in the migh
ty struggle. Seven times, in as many
*aattles, he was shot.
As a soldier, he was superb; as a
emr he was upright; as a 'lawyer, he
was conscientious and able; as a
staimp speaker, he was exceeded by
none and equalled by few.
Equity was ~ds forte. This Stat~
as eer prouced a better equity
lie lived out tho alloted time to:
man. lacking twelve days. His whole
life was a continued sermon, and his
texz. was charity and chastity.
He loved his Tellow man and was
beloved by many. He was broad
minded and loved his friends above
party prejudice. Well do I remem

so fearfully divided. some good but

prominent candidate. and, but fo- the
influence of a menmier of this co1t.

of lieutenant governor, blood would

ney general. wvent to the brave and
fearless candidate, who was willing to
fight the crowd. and said: "You and
your friend shall eat dinner with me
today. Almighty God forbid that our
people should ever be so divided again
is my prayer."
Chief Justice Pope made law his
chief study, to which he directed ev
erything else. His industry was in
defatigable, his parts. quick, his appre
hension lively, and his judgment sol
id. He was meek, humble and modest
in his sufferings, forgiving from his
heart and tenderly loving his fellow
man. He learned early in life that
passion and revenge often make men
furious, and that the lust of power,
worldly honor, applause or wealth
may prompt them to brave dangers,
but that these passions leave them
weak and dastardly in other cases, be
ing most grievous crimes and full of
misery. "Religion," he said, "is the
only basis on which true magnani
mity And courage caif stand. It so en
lighten4 the mind as to set a man
above all human wants and to pre
serve him in all changes and trials
steady and calm in himself. It se
cures him against the errors, the in
justices and the frowns of the world,
and is, by its powerful motives, the
strongest spur to all generous ac
tions, and, under afflictions and suffer
ings, a source of unalterable peace
and overflowing joy which spring
from an assured confidence in God's
will is always most just and holy, and
that He will be his protector and re
Ho~w well our hero knew that re
ligion exerts this powerful influe'nce
in us, and that it appears in our
hearts, in our actions and in our con
duct. It is not enough to encounter
dangers with resolution; we must',
with equal courage and constancy,
vanquish pleasure and the softer pas
sions. or we possess not the virtue
of true fortitude.
How often he used to talk to me
about his three lovely daughters, one
of whom preceded him to the grave
by several years. He felt that her
sweet hand was always beckoning
him to come on to the beautiful home
prepared for them 'by the angels. Of
these lovely 'women one was his step
daughter, of whom he would say to
me: "I love Katy, now the accom
plished wife of our tioq'!ent Col.
George Johnstone, ju.st ta much as
though she were my own child." A
devoted husband, a devoted fath'er,
his children called him "sweetheart."
Farewell, my distinguished friend
and comrade. Soon we who heard
the roar of the same cannon and the
rattle of the same musketry that you
heard over the grave-dotted p-tins of
Virginia, will assemble on the brink
of the River of Time, awaiting the
sound ,of the last reveille in the morn
ing, and you will meet 1is at the cross
ing. with Hampton and Butler .and
Kershaw anid Hagood and the old
Bald Eagle of Edgefieid, where we will
rest under the shade of the trees.
