; We have met to-day In accordance with
an honored custom to celebrate- an in
stitution whose influence and history
should be dear to every Teiiton'c and
Anglo Saxon heart . 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

and ferocious nations this true ideal of

stronger by strengthening the weak. The

the best endeavors of this proffered pro

civilization owes its power and attain

debted to chivalry for the kindlv influ

consideration in which she was, and still
is held is the great secretof Anglo-Saxon

dominion was nnbounded,and the knight
without a mistress was like a tree with

the position of pure and noble woman

institution which- makes, the name of
as dear as - life and woman,

we owe all. Into. her arms we are born,
"watching her lij s our own became vo

'; The Democrat State Convention met
here td-dajy the Bession being held in
the Richmond Theatre, a full representa
tion from all the sections was present. It
is remarked on all sides that the person
el of the convention was a superior" to
that of any of late' years and reminded
old politicians of the great gatherings of
ante bellum days. 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. Under this
resolution the chairman of each delega
tion names the members for each com
mittee. A recess was taken until 4o.m:

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE
Address y Col. James M. L'cacJi, Jr.,
A. D. C.-,on the Governor Staff,
to the N. C. State Guard on the Qc

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
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
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
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
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'
: 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',
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

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 ;'
