Civilization Lad gotten its idda of beauty fron tlie Greeks, but they had passed, into the wreck of Empire and nothing remained of them and their glory 6ave the statues of sculp tors tfyc conceptions of. painters, and 4,hf songs of poets. They . emulated the ex terna! beauty; next in pciod of time the iiotnan,. that bard. and tyranious master gave Jo-7ftyiiizKtiori perinanent, rules oil the great question of how to govern and be governed. The world had no tangible ideal. The lioman Empire crouched and died Under the feet of invading Gaul and Yandl and "nrogress" slept the sleep of the dark or middle ages'. These two na tions had missed the loftiestof all ideals. Next in point of .eminence came lhe Tenton, uncouth and barbarous, ferocious and warlike still he bore in his breast the true ideal of national success, and beneath the shadow of the Horn an Em pire he erected a foundation for law, so ciety.and military prowess.- He extolled those heart qualities which, in years that were to come, made England great and have placed the statue s of .Liberty upon the donje of our national capitol. He combined those qualities of love and beaut3' which rule the wcild. "Thus from the Greek we have learne'd how to think; from the Roman how to govern and be governed, and from the Teuton how to love." The origin of chivalry is doubtful; its true inception is hidden in the chaotic oblivion of unlettered history; still speci fically speaking it had its rise about the middle of the 10th century. ' Its philos ophy was the protection of the' weak, and marvellous it is that among barbarous and ferocious nations this true ideal of social prominence exerted itself at such an early period.' The strong became stronger by strengthening the weak. The mighty, showed, their power in doing honoto the eeble. Woman .claimed the best endeavors of this proffered pro tection and to her it was awarded. Our civilization owes its power and attain ments to her exaltation and we are in debted to chivalry for the kindlv influ ence which her position exertp. The high consideration in which she was, and still is held is the great secretof Anglo-Saxon national and international succeseC Her dominion was nnbounded,and the knight without a mistress was like a tree with out branches, a body without, a soul. Her smile was the conqueror's reward there; and so it is to-day. All honor to the position of pure and noble woman hood. All honor to that grand old institution which- makes, the name of mother- imuuojv as dear as - life and woman, the ideal of love and beauty To her we owe all. Into. her arms we are born, "watching her lij s our own became vo cal;" from her we imbibe our ideals of integrity and virtue. With 113, as with them, chastity is a woman, liberty is a woman, love is a woman she closes our eyes when the light is gone. The knight ei-rast Jong before the immortal fellow .sang the deathless lay of Iliawatbai. tnew that. "As the bow unto the cord is,. -So unto man i womam ;. - ' ( Though she bends him still she obevg him ; " Though she draws htm, still she follows him; Vseiesseach without the otlier." JI might recountth&fhardsaips and ! as perities to which the knight, the squire and thc valeiwere exposed. I might speak of his running -the :quintaine, his fasting, his religious duties; his attacks upon mimic fortresses; but in that event I would be en croaching upon your valuable -time 'and the patience of the audience; again, I would be usurping. -the prerogative of Ariosto, of Spenser, and Tasso, and feebly could I sing the songs of the meiincsingers and -the romantic and beautiful ballads of the Trou badour. 'I might recall the history of the First Edward, of Bois Guilbert and Rich ajd Couerxde Lion:- but then 1 should be invading and degrading the sacred pages of Scott and llallam. 1 . k . T The introduction of-gun powder has tened the downfall of feudalism; but thank heaven the spirit of chivalry still remains in the! breasts of. all true Southern-' men. Show me the knights of -old whose name and history are greater than Lee's or Jack son's, Washingtqu's or Johnston's ; ' ! You have a duty which imposes a sacred trust.

A few minutes after 12 o'clock , the Hon. John S. Earbour, chai rman of the State Committee, appear ed on the stage; and after an enthusiastic greeting called the convention to order. In his remarks he alluded in complim entary terms to President Cleveland, and his administration of Federal affairs. He spoke encouragingly of the prospects ot the success of the Dcmoratic party of the State in the present' campaign, and concluded by urging harmony and unit ed action, lie then named Capt. Kobt. Crockett, of Wy the county, as temporary chairman. That gentleman upon taking the chair returned thanks for the honor conferred on him. ' The convention had assembled to per form important duties which required no ordinary labor but he believed they were equal to any emergency, and to defeat the enemy in . the coming cam paign would require wisdom and labor. Their opponents were already at work and they had to be on the alert and at every point to meet tfiein. He concluded by. announcing that the convention was ready for business. . Resolutions were adopted providing that delegations from each congressional disti ict select three members for each of the committees on crenditials, on permanent organization, and on resolution, and five members for the State Central committee.

State Guard on the Qc casiork of the Grand -Review Had at - Camp Scales at Asheville on . ' Wednesday Afternoon, the 20th of : July, 1885.. ; ,. , v .. Comrades, Ladies and Gentlemen : I am reminded that one of earth's greatest soldiers lies vmbtiried. Like Caesar, he was never defeated in life; and, unlike Cccsar, General Grant was unconquerad in death- for there bloomed in his heart the hopo of a nobler life and, laying aside at death's bidding earth's greatest hon orshe has gone to the reward that awaits the tender husband and fath er, the generous fnendrfiiid true the conscientious- citizen, the magnani mous .victor, the Preserver of the Union and the Friend of Liberty. The circle of his fame is commensu rate witbearth's circumference. We ought to congratulate our selves that we have so fair a land in which to hold our Encampment. Ina warmer atmosphere we might become oppressed with the duties of camp life, but Aercthe sweet, cool air invites to martial exercises, and the . glorious prospect which the matchless scenery of Western "Caro lina spreads around us awakens in each heart a deep sense of pride and patriotism the highest incentive to the -worthy performance of any pub lic duty. His Excellency, Governor Scales whose administration promises to be as successful as any in our State's history and General Jones, who drafted the bill upon which our Guaf d is organized; and whose sig nal services to the State in this di rection has secured him the appoint ment to the high position ho now holds under three successive Gover nors these distinguished superior officers have invited me to speak to you of "The importance of the State Guard as an organization." But be fore I enter upon my subject, permit me to say that I have had occasion to regret that the whole people of the State do not take greater inte rest in the State Guard, and I ex press the hope that the Legislature will give us a more liberal appro priation for-the amount now given is very inadequate for the purposes which they had in view when they gave the Governor power, and made it part of his .duty, to - ti fun and cillthejjuard j:2s lam aware that people are now busy with their crops, that business is : brightening: and, all eyes are turned hopefully to a future of yet greater individual and national wealth.', I know that it is hardly Xhe time to hope to gaiii the thoughtful at tention of all when speaking of the importance of military matters: yet, r am encouraged by the increasing nterest manifested in this 'direction, as evidenced by the great number of the Guard present, representing al quarters of the State, and I look upon it asHndicatiiig that the breeze is beginning to blow, in the riht direction. - ... . - Since this first encampment may be pronounced an unquestionable and decided success, we may confi dently expect, as a natural result, that a publication of its success will excite great interest throughout the State, and will have the effect of ad ding nvftnbers, dignity and strength to the State Guard. ; "- In 3peaking on the subject given me, I shall confine myself first to the importance of the Guard wheni consiaereu in us proper reiauon 10 our State, and then speak of its re lation to the Federal Government. As there are fearful elements in the bosom' of .the natural world, so in society, in bo large a State as ours, there is always present moro or less of ' dangerous elements criminal classes to be held in check by the majority, if justice is to run her course or virtue rule. - Ordinarily the civil arm wilL be strong enough,-but history, even of free btates, teaches that emergencies arisa where the civil authority needs to.be armed and strengthened by th3 military; and as the . only legit imate military power in such cases is the soldiery of the people freely coming forward to uphold theif au thority, it follows th.t the. Guard is the proper force for the Governor to use in suppressing -; insurrection, mobs and illegal assemblies of all sorts that overpower or defy the civil authorities. " ... Tho practical benefit of the State Guard on such occasions depends not more-on the Guard . themselves than on the Legislature which, by law controls it, and determines the limits of its office. . If the power giv en the Governor is 'so limited that the aid he offers -i to threatened com munities is ineffectual, the Legisla ture is responsible; and if too creat power ever be placed in the Guard, it will not be.the tault of the organ ization, but of the law-makihgjow-er that controls it. - The Guard is intended to be much more than a posse coviitatus, or police force; for when the civil arm hangs nerveless and powerless, it is inten ded that the. Guard should come to the protection of society, and tSiatit bring order, health' and peace, out of disorder, disco. so and license. There are those who arc rendv or. or ht' th ncss of the Sheriffs authority, and" speak the praises of a police force ' but who deny the practical benefit' of a State G uard. ' , ' ' ' , - I admit the necessity and impor-. tance of the police. I am never more grateful or prouder of my country, than when I lie in my bed' at night and listen . to the monoto nous tramp, tramp, tramp, of the night:watchman, and feel that the law faithful as a mother stands ' by my bedside with her pure hands raised in benediction: but when the Sheriff is overpov ered and crimin als are set free; when the police, and all municipal authorities are out- numbered and - flee for their lives.' what will you do? Who will stop the wrone-doers. or lead . a band of citizens against them? Where is your organization, your fspeedy action" your lawful lead- err - ' '".'..' . The State Guard, as an organiza tion; is an Answer 'to-alt the . qucr-,"' tions, and meets the . need of the hour. A few such citizen soldiers are like bones in , the human body they give solidity and stability to our entire State system. If. we turn our thoughts to the re lation our State Guard bears to the ' National Government, we see, at a glance, that it is a very important one. Not only is it admirably suit ed' to the extraordinary crises in State history, but in greater junc tures, it forms the nucleus of greater Jorces. It keeps aavo the military. spirit and taste, tho rudiments of a wholesome discipline, and the ex ample of organization. A community having one conTpa ny, could, on a sudden call, quickly : form others after the model. But says one : "Peace is what we want." I reply that as human nature now is, the best security for the peace is the known ability and spirit of that nation to fight if invaded. The American idea is that the true strength and defence of a nation (so far as a military power is concerned) must be in a citizen soldiery - as against standing armies, now the curse and the burden of so man' nations. ' : I might show you the wisdom of our theory viewed from an econom ic standpoint, but will content my self on this point by observing that we have no less authority on such subjects than Mr. Beecher.for the statement that to-day eight million . men- are kept armed in Europe alone, to say nothing of the -vast standing armies of Japan and other', countries. ' Only a free nation can rely on a citizen soldiery, it being in fact the ' peopleWcown . jfilTTying "to uphold their own. chosen institutions, "aritT"' the authorityFemina'ting from their" will. : . - As freedom advances and enlight enment extends, every system must fall which requires standing armies., and compulsory military service to maintain it, aud tho . test of good government all over the world will, be what it is in the United States' the readiness of its people volunta- , rily to como to its rescue if needed. . Our idea of a volunteer soldiery is ' destined to revolutionize the milL? tary establishments of the world, and as a proof of the wisdom oftur , system it may be part of our desti ny to crush, with the volunteer ar- . tnies ' of a re-united country, the boasted but decaying etrength oi some imperial nation. If asked what suggests such a possibility, it . might be answered that while, wo ; usually see only blessings in' the in- ; , creased facilities for .communica tion, for commerce, between na tions, yet in ; soberest momenta we " know that all this is not an un- - mixed good. . '.'...' . Formerly we were- widely separa- -ted from , the interests, -"the i'eud3 ' and follies" of th8 old world. To day mountains, are Dut fences, and, oceans are, only rivers. ' Liberty is visiting many , lands and signing death-warrants of all forms of ty- .". ranny. ; '.. Interests of commerce and wealth . conflict, and nations are look-; ing each other straight in the eye Iii this surge of. modern lite "all over the world conflicts are being born, and presently they will grow., . to be national troubles. : - ; , -;. As we are the greatest nation on ' the globe, as we have a greater in- , come than England and are destined soon to be richer than shejasour, commerce and importance increase we will make new enemies, and if , ever threatened of invaded our chief ; protection and salvation must be our soldiers, coming from . the regular , , army, 1 from the great body of the , people, and from the state guards , of tne various states. '( ; - . ' ' If the future holds any such poa- . . sibilities in store for us is not the . state guard an important organiza- : tion indeed? ' Will it not have a .noble office to ' :t perform if ever called , to assist in ;' preserving the integrity of American . institutions, and thereby securing to -future ages the blessings of this great Western republic 1m inanity's J best hopo?
