S. C. NATIONAL GUARD
OPPOSES CONTINENTAL AIMY
At, Recent Meeting Endorsed Pre
paredness iden But Not Method.
A goodly nunihler of the National
Guard Association of South Carolina
met in Adjutant General Aloore's of
lice Saturday night. The meeting coim
sullied two full hours and one of those
preselit. said afterwards that it. Was
one of the most enthusiastic meetings
of the guard that he had ever at
tended. The association adopted the
report of the national organization,
approving reasonable increase in the
The keynote of the meeting l was to
improve the National Guard of South
Carolina so as to put it on an eqlual
footing with those of oiter States.
One of the otlicers said after the
mieeting: --We realize that the Na
tional Guard of South Carolina has
not been getting the publicity of those
of other States and we cannot blame
the press but ourselves. It is now our
purpose to keep the work of tle guard
before the public and to put It. on a
par or above that, of any other State.
Ai. the lvgin i i-i g 6f t t meet ing
Major 1P. J. I)rew, president of the as
sociation appointed Col. '. M. lilythe
and Capt. )oyle to escort Governor
Manning into the ieeting. Governor
Manning was warmly cheered as he
entered the meeting. 1li told of lits
great interest in he National Guard
and of his endeavor to place it on the
highest plane of Aileiency. The gov
ernor further expressed his approval
of the legislative cor'mitten's report,
which was offered at (le recent ses
sion of tlie Adjutant Generals of the.
United States, held in California.
One of the principal features of the
meeting was tie cr1ffeism of the pro
posed continental army, whose provi
sions were fully, freely and frankly
discussed by Col. Blythe, Gen. Moore,
Con. John 1). Frost, Gen. Willie Jones,
Maj. Richard F. Watson of Green
ville and Capt. .1. Prost Walker, Jr., of
Union. All of (le speakers criti
cised the continental army as being
impracdicable. Among other provi
sions of it are: That the enlistment
be 133,000 (lie first year, a like number
the second and third years, finally
reaching approximately 400,000, an(
again that there be an encampment
every year lasting two months. This
last phase was the one that was most
severely ridiculed and criticised, as
being impracticable of execution.
A poem which was written .and
sung to the tune of the well-known
old song, "Dlanniy Deever" at he
meetling of the National Association
of Adjiuta IGeneralIs was read at the
Meeting fast night. It. strike al tile
