Governor John Peter Richardson was
duly inaugurated oil 'uesday the :k0th
alt., in the Opera louse at Columbia.
After taking the oath of oflice. Governor
Richardson iade his inaugural address,
Gentlemen of the Senate and house
of Itepresentatives: 1 is with a deep
sense of the responsibility and obliga
tion 1 assumel that I lave just taken in
this solemn presence the constitutional
oath of ofilcc as Gjovernor of South Car
With no ordinary emotion, and with a
heart full of gratitude to the people of
this State, through whose partial kind
ness I am the rcipient of this exalted
honor, 1 this day enter upon the dis
charge of its high duties, to the faithful,
hvnest, vigilant and p-atriotie execution
of which 1 pledge the honor of a devoted
son of Carolina.
Sincerely distrustful of my own abili
ties, I contidently rely upon you, their
chosen represenatives, for such wise,
liberal and conservative action as will
reider the progress of the State in
material prosperity rapid and the execu
tive administration of her affairs easy.
To the most unobservant and indiffer
eut it must be apparent that these are
times fruitful of vast and pressing
problems, social, industrial and econoni
ie, both in State and national aflairs,
which demand for their solution the ablest
talent and most unselfish patriotisi.
Notwithstanding the dual nature of our
institutions and government, investing
the citizen, as it. does, with varied duties
and interests, the peculiar condition of
dur State, socially and politically, during
the dark days of reconstruction, rigidly
cronfined the attention of our people to
the seemingly hopeless and Herculean
task of wresting from a chaos of cor
ruption and venality in all their hideous
forms, and of -universal malfeasance i
official life, such as had never before dis
graded the annais of a -:ivilized coinmu
nity, order and good government.
. How successfully, how marvelously,
this has been accomplished, need I at
tempt to describe? Surely, it can never
be possible that the deep. soul-burning
humiliations, the cruhing tyrannv. the
iuinous taxation we so long endured, the
bold effrontery of loathsome vice in high
places that stalked in open daylight
throuh the streets of this beautiful
apitz, have so soon passed out of mind
and been forgotten like the idle terrors
of a dream, amidst the quieting, restful
surroundings of the renewed peace, order
aid good government we now so bounti
fully enjoy. To the people of Carolina,
I verily believe, one of the greatest mis
fortunes that could occur would be an
oblivious disregard of a former experi
'ence that, upon the least cessation of
vigilance on their part, might, and would
almost surely, again become a terrible
possibility. The same elements of evil
are here, the same forces present, though
latent; but to this generation, who are
the witnesses of and the sufferers from
certaily' the most anomalous and ex
traordinary condition of political and
social life under which a people ever
lived, I do not think there can ever come
any deluge of Lethean waters so over
whelming as to sink into oblivion the bit
ter memories of the past. Sad, indeed,
would be the sure results of crimainal for
getfulness of a lesson so roughly taught,
so heroically learned! No, this can
never be. We are again in the house of
our fathers, as masters and rulers, and
we are here to stay as such for all time;
but to stay inspired by the true instinets
of libet' and animated solely by a high
and natmotic purpose to wspense even
handied justice,. to maintain the purity
of our institutions, and to secure to all
classes and conditions of our citizens
every legal, constitutional and inherent
right of nia.
With the inestimable advantages of
good and honest government once more
surrounding us, hike a life-givmng atmnos
phere, how bright the prospect for a rapid
advance in all the arts of peace and in
the accumulation of the wealth to which
our wonderful resources of soil and
climate so justly entitle us! True, vwe
are just at this time in a condition of
great business depression, common to
every interest of the whole world, and in
no way peculiar to ourselves, save, per
haps, m complications arising from the
transition phase through which our
agricultural industry is now passing. To
this great interest we should certainly
give promptly that attention which its
importance to the general welfare so im
peratively demands. We should ap-.
p~roach its con'sideration with that calm
ness of judgment and freedom from pas-.
sion so essential to reaching wise conclu
;io'ns. The D~epartment of Agriculture,
to whose eharge its interests have been
intrusted, and whose development has
been the object of such earnest, faithful
and suc'cessful efforts, should be sus
tained and fostered. All laws upon our
statute books tending to the retardation
of its developmen.t, or calculated to
direct its energies into unprofita'ble
channels, shoul be at once repealed,
and such measures- only as are absolutely
needed for its proper encouragement
-hould be enacted.
Perfect freedom of action and judg
ment is the most efficient incentive to
successful exertion i all the occupations
of life. This it is the duty of any govern
ment to insure to any citzen, whether
walking in the paths of commerce, fol
lowing the professions, or gathering the
wealth of nature from our teeming for
ests and causing our fruit' ul fields to
yield their abundan t increase. I speak
as a farmer, who loves his calling with
an ardor inherited from ancestors devoted
solely to the tillage of the soil, and
whose instincts, affnities and sympathies
are, therefore, naturally and warmly en-.
listed in the successful furtherance of
that first, grandest and noblest of par
suits. A fair tield, untrammeled oppor
tunities, exact justice, freedom iromi
discriminating legislation, and such en
couragement as is entirely within the
legitimate sphere of government, is all.
the American citizen asks or. ne' (s, and
constitute the very fundamental princi
pes of the liberty~ for which Washmgt~on
fought and conquered, and in defense of
which our heroes crimsoned the count
less hills and valleys of the Sunny South.
May the genius of libe~rty pr1eside for~
ever over our destiny and direct all our
efl .rts to the accomaplishmen:t of so glori
ous a triumph in govermental seience.
Amidst the 1audant causes for .oui
gatulation, we certabuy piossess one in
the restored credit and improved finane7:.
of the State, brought to renewed life, as
it were, fionm a condition of ahiuost abso
lute decay and death. We shouldnt
forget to scan closely the expenditures of
the government, and restrict them within
the limits of a wise and liberal economy.
This is but simple justice to the taxpayv
er. who, however cheerfully and uncom
plainingly he may pa~y his <iuota of
er burdens than the necessities of gov
ernment imperatively demand. Uut it
should also be remembered that the
smallest and fewest appropriations are not
always the wisest economy. Govern
ment is business, and, like any other
business, requires for its successful con
duet the use of money; such, fur in
stance, as for the adequate compensation
of oicials, the proper maintenance of
charitable and penal institutions, the
pronipt payment of all public obliga
tiols, the liberal support 01 common
seliools and higher institutions of learn
ing, the necessary expenses of legislation
itseli, and the nuierous other incidental
purposes that foot up no inconsiderable
We have already achieved much in the
way of economy. having reduced ex
pcnhitures to a point that places the g'v
ermnient of this State among the cheap
est, if not the very cheapest. of the
States of the Union. A comparison of
our expenditures with those of any other
State will, I an sure, fully justify this
assertion. While looking, then. with
continued care to the exercise of this
cardinal virtue of econony in the admin
istration of our alfairs, especial attentiin
should be paid to maintaining the credit
of the State. now at a point of excellence
never before reached in the history of
her finances. If this credit is fully sus
tained the opportunity will s'on be pre
sented, by the early maturity of our se
curities, i refunding them at a much
reduced rate of interest, and thus re
lieving the taxpayers, by a single trans
action, of an annual burden of perhaps
one hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
This surely will prove a measure of
econoir y- that wt.uld be sensibly felt as
a relief to every industry ant occupa
tion, and should enlist, therefore, for its
accomplishment, the active sympathies
and Co-operation of all. A practical test
of the feasibility of this project must
soon be made inthe case of our deticiencv
bonds and stocks, which mature as early
as Julv. 1888, for the refunding of which
timely provision, will have, of necessity,
to be made.
But however rigid the ideas enter
tained upon this subject, however great
the appaient necessity for retrenchment
and reform, there is one direction in
which they cannot te exercised without
stilling the young life of the people and
sapping the very sources if tr material
and intellectual strength. 1 alh:de to
oir public schools and the system of
Colleges we call the University. The
one is the essential complement of the
ther, and neither cal accompli-sh the
f all measure of its usefulness without its
necessary Coadjutor in the grand work
of education. In the common -chools
are to be laid the broad foundations, and
in the institutions of higher learning are
be reared the beautiful and lofty
structures of intellectual development
that render a people prosperous, happy,
g-eat and respected among the nations
of the earth. Applhmse.] Such insti
tutions are not like mushrooms-the
growth of anight. Theyrequirelong years
, patient sacrifice, of unceasing patriotic
efort, of liberal and unstinted support,
to attain their full stature and grand
proportions, where their pinuacles, reach
ing to the sky. will shed a beam of
transeendant bligitness over the land,
vivifying industry and warming into
active life every dormant energy.
In the matter of education we caunt it
afford to contract. The true poliey
s1ho 'uld b. t)to broadent, to deepen anud to
wi;d.en, as the resources of the State I ir
1it. until the. last vestigte of mental
dariness is swept from our borders, :md
..verv child in the State shall become the
recipient ot thet benignant influences of
tir'ough instruction. The aecompldish
m.t of this gtreat work, with us, can
oil e gradual, for none but the wtill
fuli- blhind can fail to see andit feel the
ire'vailing em'ibarrassmient, so widespread
ad' universal. But, at least, lit step
b akward shoul be taken. The ma~rchi
um~ist be ever ouward, with the steadyv
dj-terminationl not to be outstiptped in

wholt are 'bending every energy to the
n:ost complete and perfct developiment
of their edueational systems.

to estalish a syste'n of free schools,
imp' erfect though it was, has the added
incentive of a noble amnbitio n to main
an ber- ancient proud position anion"

the States. Nor will the fruits of such
a liberal policy be either mieagr-e or de-s
