Tito Inaugural Aildre?? Delivered I hw
Oceaalon-A Sirona mu? Timely I'tiper.
Governor .John ivtur Richardson was
duly inaugurated on Tuesday the ..Oth
ult., in tiie Open? House at Columbia.
Alter hiking tho oath ol oiliOO, Governor
Richardson made ins iuailgural address,
as follow s
G OU tl omen o? tho Senate and tioUSU
of Representatives: lt is with a deep
sense of tin- responsibility and obliga
tion l assume] that I have josi taken in
this solemn presence tho constitutional
oath ot oilico tvs Govornor of South Car
With no ordinary emotion, and with lt
heart full of gratitude to tho people ot
this State, through whose partial kind
ness i am the recipient of this exalted
honor, I this du? enter upon the dis
charge ot its high duties, t > the faithful,
honest, vigilant and patriotic execution
ol which 1 pledge the honor of a devoted
son of Carolina.
Sincerely distrustful of my own abili
ties, 1 confidently rely upon you, their
chosen representatives, for such wise,
liberal and conservativo action as. aili
render the progress of thc Stab' in
material prosperity rapid and thc OXCCtl
tivc administration of bor affairs easy.
To the most unobservant and indiffer
ent it inust bo apparent that these arc
times fruitful ol vast and pressing
problems, social, industrial aud econom
ic, both in State and national allah's,
w hich demand for t heir si du t ion t he al ?lest
talent and most unselfish patriotism.
Notwithstanding the dual nature of our
institutions and government, investing
the citizen, as it does, with vaiied duties
aud interests, the peculiar condition ol
our State, socially and politically, dining
tho dark days of reconstruction, rigidly
confined thc attention of our people to
tho . uiingly hopeless and Herculean
task of wresting from a chaos of cor
ruption and venality ill all their hideous
forms, and of universal malfeasance in
official lifo, such as had never before dis
graced tho annals of a civilized commu
nity, order and good government.
How successfully, how marvelously,
thia has been accomplished, leed i at
tempt to describe? Surely, it can never
bo possible that thc dee]?, soul-burning
humiliations, thc crushing tyranny, the
ruinous taxation we so long endured, tho
bold effrontery of loathsome vice in high
places that stalked in open daylight
through tho streets of Ibis beautiful
capital, have so soon passed out of mind
and been forgotten like the idle terror.
ot* tl dream, amidst tho quieting, restful
surroundings of the renew ed peace, order
and good government WO now M> bounti
fully enjoy. To the people of Carolina.
1 verily believe, one ol' the greatest mis
fortunes that could occur would bc HU
oblivious disregard of a former experi
ence that, upon the least cessation ot
vigilance .-n their part, might, and would
almost surely, again become a terrible
possibility, i bo same olemouts ol evil
aro here, lin- same forces present, though
latent: but to this generation, who ure
tho witnesses ot and the sufferers from
certainly the most anomalous and ex
traordinary condition of political and
social lifo under which a people ever
lived, 1 do not think thero can ever come
any deluge of 1.ethean waters so over
whelming OS to sink into oblivion the bit
ter memories of the past. Sad, indeed,
would bo tho sure results of eriminal for
getfulness of a lesson so roughly t inghi,
so heroically learned! No, this eau
never bc. Wo arc again in the ho.iso of
our fathers, as masters and rulers, and
we are hero to stay ns such for all time;
but to stay inspired by the tine instincts
of liberty and animated solely by a high
and patriotic purpose to dispense even
handed justice, to maintain the purity
of our institut ions, and to secure to all
classes and conditions of our citizens
every legal, constitutional and inherent
right of man.
Witli the inestimable advantages of
good and honest government once nunc
surrounding us, like a life-giving atmos
phcro, how bright the pr' ?speetft ?ra rapid
advance in all thc art- ol peace Slid in
tho accumulation of tho wealth to which
our wonderful resources of soil and
climate SO justly entitle us! Trill', Wc
are just at this time in a conditiou ol
great business depression, common to
every interest of tin- whole world, and in
no way peculiar to ourselves, save, per
haps, m complications arising from thc
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 thc general welfare so Im
peratively demands. Wc should ap
proach its consideration with that calm
ness of jude*1 mt and freedom from pas
sion so css< .bini to reaching wise conclu
sions. 'Hie Department ot Agriculture,
to whoso charge its interests have been
intrusted, and whose development has
boon the object of such earnest, faithful
and successful efforts, should be sus
tained and fostered. All laws upon our
statute books tending to the retardation
of its development, or calculated to
direct its energies into unprofitable
channels, should be at once repealed,
anti such measure- only as are absolutely
needed for its proper encouragement
should bc enacted.
Perfect freedom of action and judg
ment is the most oilicieiti incentive to
successful oxertion i.i nil tho occupations
of life. This it is the duty of any govern
ment to insure to any citizen, whether
walking in the pa!hs of commerce, fol
lowing tho professions, or gathering tho
wealth of nature from our teeming for
ests and causing our fruitful Heids to
yiold their abundant increase. J speak
ns a farmer, who loves his calling with
an ardor iuln rited from ancestors devoted
solely to thc tillage of the soi., ami
whose instincts, allindie and sympathies
are, therefore, naturally ami warmly en
listed in tho successful furtherance td
that hist, grandest and noblest of pur
suits. A fair Held, u u tram moled oppor
tunities, exact justice, freedom from
discriminating legislation, and snell en
couragement as is entirely within Il
legitimate sphere ol government, is all
WO American citizen asks Or needs, and
constitute tho very fundamental princi
ples of tho liberty for w hich Washington
fOUght ami conquered, ami in defense ol
which otu*.heroes crimsoned thc count
less hills ami valleys of tho Sunny South,
May the genius of liberty preside for
ever over our destiny and direct all our
offorts to tin; neoomplishmonl of so glori
ous ft triumph in government?! seit ncc.
Amidst tho abundant causes for con
gratalation, wo certainly possess ono in
tho restored credit ami improved finance?
of tho State, brought to renewed lifo, an
it were, from a condition of almost nbso
lute decay and death. Wo should not
forget to scan closely the expenditures of
tho government, ana restrict them within
the limits of a wise and liberal economy.
This is but simplo justice to tho taxpay
er, who, however cheerfully ami u neon,
plainingly ho may pay his quota of
tribute, should not bo subj ec toil to groat
or burdous than tho necessities of gov
ernment imperatively demand. But it
should also bo remembered timi the
.smallest and fewest appropriations aro uot
always tho wisest economy. Govern*
mont is business, and, like any other
business, requires for its successful con
duct tho USO of money; snell, for in
stance, as for the adequate compensation
nt officials, the proper maintenance of
charitable ami penal institutions, the
prompt payment ot all public obliga
tion-, tho liberal support of common
schools and higher institutions of learn
ing, tho necessary expenses of legislation
itself, and Hie numerous other incidental
purposes that foot up no inconsiderable
We have already achieved much in the
way of economy, having reduced ex
penditures to a point that places tho gov
ernment ?d' this otate among thc cheap
est, it not tho very cheapest, ul the
States ot tho Union. A comparison of
our expenditures with those 01 any other
State will, I am ?ure, fully justify this
assertion. While looking, then, with
continued care to tho exercise of this
cardinal virtue of economy in tho admin
istration of our allans, especial attention
should be paid to maintaining tho credit
of the State, now at a point ot excellence
Hover boforo readied in tho history of
her tlnailCCS. If this credit is tully sus
laine?! tho opport mity will soon be pro
si uted, by the carly maturity of our ?e
emitios, ol'rotunding them atti much
reduced rate ot interest, and thus re
lioviug tho taxpayers, by a Bingle trans
action, Ol' an annual burden of perhaps
ono hundred and titty thousand dollars.
This surely will prove a mensure of
econou y that would bo sensibly foll as
ii relief to every industry and occupa
tion, and should enlist, therefore, for its
accomplishment, tho net ive sympathies
and co-operation of all. A practical test
ol' tho feasibility of this project must
soi >n bo made in tho case of our delicieuoy
bonds and stocks, which mature as early
as .Inly, 1888, for tho refunding of which
timely provision, will have, of necessity,
to bo made.
But however rigid tho ideas enter
fained upon this subject, however groat
tl.o appal ont necessity for retrenchment
and reform, there is one direction in
which they cannot be exercised without
.stilling tho young life Ot' tho people and
sapping thu very sources of our material
and intellectual strength. I allude to
our publie schools and tho system ol
