A PERMANENT EXPOSITION, TO BE

Roanoke throws its gates wide open
today to the Massachusetts Pre?? As?
sociation, and extends its members a
most cordial welcome to the city.
You have now traveled over a con?
siderable portion of the rich ami beau?
tiful mountain country of Southwest
Virginia traversed by the Norfolk and
Western railroad. You have seen
some of our uew manufacturing towns,
and have sped through our mos1, fertile
valleys. Y'ou have luspectod the va6t
deposits of coal in the Poeahoutas re?
gio.), aud seen furnaces sending forth
their "clouds of smoke by day. and
pillars of lire by night." You have
witnessed altogether a grand combina?
tion of the beautiful in nature with the
progressive in material development,
and uow come back to Roanoke, the
hub and commercial centre of the entire
There is no more lining place in the
State, where Massachusetts and Vir?
ginia should meet and renew the ties
that united them in the revolutionary
contest than in this city. There is no
city ia the State more typical of the
progressive spirit of the South of to?
day, and no city whose upbuilding has
been so much due to the combination
of lb j labor and capital of Northern
and. Southern men.
Born, like many of its citizens after
the bombardment cfFori Sumpter and
the surrander at Appomattox, Roan?
oke is pre-eminently a uew town ; a
town similar to many others destined
to rise ia the mountain section of
the Southwest m the next few years;
a town in which the men of the North
ami (.f the South equally meet together
in business relations, and work hand
in 1 and in industrial development; a
town stirred with the spirit of enter?
prise, a::d animated with the determi?
nation to utilize its every resource,
and upbuild a large and prosperous city.
Those of its citizens who were born
in the South revere and honor as they
sho- d the courage aud integrity of
those who fought for the Confederacy,
and :'e!ieve that a conviction of right
animated them in their action. Upon
their fair feme, upon their loyalty to
hom*j, upon their devotion to the prin?
ciples of ,'iborty. they will acknowl?
edge no stain nor permit censure.
The struggle of'ol to '0i> was the inev?
itable outcome of circumstances. It
was :he outcome of that auomaly in
government, which boasted of liberty
and the equality of mankind in its
Declaration of Indepenpauce, and yet
rccornized human slavery in its cod
b? tu lion. If New England had been
situated where South Carolina and
Georgia are situated. If the equator
rau through British America instead
of Brazil and Peru. If climatic'con?
ditions had been changed; if the South
had hecu a manufacturing centre and
tlic North a purely agricultural region,
viewe'd from an impartial standpoint,
New England, in all probability,
would have done what Alabama ar.d
Mississippi and the remainder of thel
Southern States did. Speaking the
same language, lighting the same bat?
tle f( r independence from Great Bri?
tain, possessing the same heritage,
lirm iu the belief iu the righta of prop?
erty and iu their devotion to their fam?
ilies and homes the people of Virginia
and Massachusetts, of Alabama and of
New Hampshire are uot unlike.
T! ere is no disposition anywhere
among fair minded meu to revive the
bitterness ot the war. Let it be
remembered, as it will bs in
the future, as the trying ordeal
through which tho nation, iu the course
ol destiny was required to pass to rid
itself of the barrier which prevented
its cohesive force from being equal
throughout ail ils parts.
With slavery gone, the Union is \
Stronger today (bau ever before in its
history. The settling of Northern men
in the South, the upbuilding of cities
like Roanoke,the mealing aud mingling
of ihi people of the iwo sections, and
the enlargement of their social and
business relations is destroying and
will fluallv completely eradicate the!
prejudices ensuing from want of ac?
quaintance and mutual understanding, j
Geatlemen of the Press Association
of Massachusetts, and ladies, we wel- j
come you to Roanoke. May your visit)
to the State he prolific in good both to!
Massachusetts aud Virginia, aud the'
means of awakening that reciprocity of
confidence and regard between the sec- j
tions that shall enable tbe United Slates j
to continue with quickened and certain '
pace in its glorious course of progress \
and development,the wonder and admi-!
ration alike of the nations of tbe world.j
