where a short stop wai made to change

of getting drinks of water, tf

been r f 'eehed and a new engine at

and during the time the paitr was

such as Mr. Chidwy always serves.
Leaving Artesia at 5 o'clock p. m., a a
Loui'rf run brought as to the bi duti

are noted fur their generous hospital

two bourn' rett, during which time tie

"Industrial Inntitutd and College."

At 8 o'clock the exercise were

Your advent lo this city and your
presence in thiseollego chapol this
evenitis we hail with trio highest gru'
ificatiou. Perhaps no imitation in
the 8out'i evsr entered rfu a public
career which in so short a time has
attracted larger nct;ce and received
visit from more distinguished per
sons. Whil? these buildings were in
fn o -ess cf erection ourcitfewsevineod
ively interest in them, and we were
often favo'ed with the presence and
roan times with tbe counsel of a dis
tinguished member of the Supreme
Court if Mississippi, who is noi only
a warm friond of this eo'lege, but who
believes that iu inauguration marks u
new era in education Hid gives a new
element ef strength and beauty to the
Southern home. When these struct
ures had been finished and the day
for opening the firtt session bad
daned, there gathered here in ex
pectait and joyful assembly much of
the beantv aud chivalry fir which oar
Stats ii justly distinguished. Wel
come to that throng, in words of
chmteaad tl8ic eNgance, was spoken
by one of your number, the earnest
and conrtly Senator fiom this district
(Hon. K T. Sykesl, adiWeswere de
livered by Senat ir J. McMarlin, Col.
lower, Judge Hill, Judge Harrison
and by hi excellency the Uovernor of
the Sute; Utters. to, were received
from onr United States Senat jrs, from
Botne of our Congressmen and from
r-President Jeff Davis. All these
speakers and writ jrs exprenoed admi
ration of the at ip which Miwwsinni
had Inken to found a college for girls
aod the belief that theBemnl wouli '
prove me wisuorn ct its projtnt rt.
But nen did not constitute the
whole, nor the half of the assembly
that gladly greit'd the incoming of
that red-letter day October 2-'J.
There sat upon the platform that
thougbt'u), phiUnthropIc lady whose
lieait was touched by ihs snuggle of
womanhood ia the South, and whose
pen bad urged the opening op of new
avenues c f usefulness t the young ol
her sex I mean Mrs. O. A. Hastings.
There tco was that noble Mississippi
woman (Mrs. E. G. Peyton), splendid
in ber undety and talents, who when
urged by tbe audience to come for
ward an I say a word of encouragement
Broke in aubitince as follows: lam
pioad to-day that I am a Missiseip.
piaa, I am proud of my S ate, pioud
of ber noble men, proud of her in
stitutions and most of all proud of this
institution. I f jel confident that tbe
interests of Mississippi's daughters are
afe in the keeping o' Musieaippi'i gen-
eious sous." Yon are here now gentle
men the law-making power of the
States in charge cf her resources and
her dearest interests; and it is with
you lo ray whether this prophecy of
the giltsd, cultured, modest "Missis
sippi woman" tlmll be fulfilled,
whether the sacred interests here en
shrined shall be preserved and fos
tered by tbe chivalrous funs of this
otnmo'n wealth. We desi? you to
see tbe institution in all its depart
ments, in all its working", to consider
its scope, its plans, and its mission.
Wa throw the doors wide open toujour
examination anl inspection we Lave
no secrets from you. As stated in the
report which has been published for
your inform t on, we are offering in
struction in a o jllegU e, a normal,' an
industrial department and a de-
Iurtment of mueic aud fine art.
n the orgam'rtfion cf the collegiate
course we hare had regard to tbe
highest educational needs of tbe peo
ple; we have planned a course fir
mora thorough than is usual in girls'
colleges, affording instruction in math
ematics and in literary and scientific
subject! abrcatt with the march of
modern progrees.
The advantages we are here offering
will be found to compare favorably
in all respects with thoee afforded by
colleges of jo 3d grade f r boys. And
we are doing this, as we think, for the
most satisfactory reasons. Many cf
our best cititens desire this thorough
and elegant culture for their daughters
here in the midst of their own people.
Hitherto scores buve sent their daugh
ters out of tbe State, to be educated
among strangers, and perbais to be
educated ott o' sympathy with the
people Among whom their lives have
been caiU Thus, tio, thousands of
dollars are taken out of the Sta'.e an
nually, depleting the volume of circu
lation circulating among us and swell
ing that In other States. This is bad
policy; but this is by no means
the worst feature cf it. If our
people feet that their inttitutiois
of learning are it f erior (o those in
other parts of our country ; If they sand
their daughters out of the Sttte in or
der to get that high male of educa
tion which they think is not alorded
by home institutions; If girls who are
educated out of Miseisslppi come back
t) It with better tininlng and culture
than tboie who attend the home
schools theie f icts will surely dissem
inate among the people influences
and impressions seiiously damaging
to our own civilisation, destrutt vo of
a proper t-tite pride, and calculated to
excite a fueling if disquietude and
uortst which leads to depreciation of
values and promotes the spirit of
emigration t) other more favored
Let us alopt such manures ss will
enable our people to see that Missis
sippi provides tbe best gifts for her
children, and that the tone of ber to
clety is as pure, cltar and strong as
Then will our sons and our daugh
ter! abide contentedly upon her soil,
aid in building no her waste places
and help to establish her prosperity.
I am aware U a', some intelligent clti
r.nn think that the State ousht to pro
vide tlemeutary education only; but,
gentlemen, the rrojt prosperous and
progressive States those that have
made the mott rapid strides In wea'th
have fostered the common schcols
and the higher leanring sleo. By thoie
States ample f icilitice have been made
for thorough collegiat) training, and
provision for varied technical snd in
jlus'rial inttructim and practice:
thereby skilled engineers, miners and
mechanics aro furnished and men and
women qualified in all those branches
of indutiy whireby too rtuurces of n
country are developed.
If Miaflis.iippi had been provided
years ago will such institutions for
ibe practical training of her sons in
the skilled imluit'ies might she net
ti-day to d a more advanced position
in the race of progress?
"Jintice, In the tYurion, uses the
greet name of Thomas Jefferson in
Buppmt cf the policy that the SMiAe
should give iti cit'saus nothing
be oud a common school education.
, No caw tno-e unfortunate fir his
argument could buve been cited. Mr.
Jetf-reon was tho great friond of
popular education by the S ate; but
he did net stop there, lie was the
ra'rou ol higher ioa'niug, as he was
the spostle of American liberty. In
behalf of the great old mother of
States and B'a'.esmen he croeBed the
Atlant'c, studied the highest iiiil'tn
tions in Kngland and on the conti'
nei.t, and coming back laid tne
foundation of the most magnificent
university America had ever seeu.
He modeled tho KjtutuU building
upon tho Pantheon at Homo, and
allotted the plan of the-universities of
(iermary. When ho died his tomb
stone bore this description : " Thorn aB

rf Independence. Fa'hor of t've
University of Virginia."
Onr normal depait nent aims to fit
pupils as thoroughly as time will
allow for the great work cf t ashing.
In all the S'.ates the f tr larger pait
of the teaching, is being done by
women, and the crying need is for
well-trained, ellicient teachers. With
out skillful, tamest, Looest tsachors,
anv school system ia obliged to be a
failure. You might as well expect an
engine on a track ti run without
steam or any power applied as to Itok
for a live and productive educational
system with indifferent teachers. In
Mississippi IHOO.OOO la spent annually
on the common schoi's. Whether or
not the people are to get the proper
return for tlrs vast annual outlay de
pends most largely upon the teachers
of those schools It is our desire nod
aim to do do our part to meet this im
perative need for earnest, progressive
teachers, and thus contribute to the
general education of the people. If we
succeed in tnis to any large degree
we will be amply coninansbting the
Si ite for all her appropriations to this
college. We stroagly and earnestly
ftvor the maintenance cf anilliciect
common school system. But the de
partment cf this inttitution which
seems to impress our people most pa
thetically, which attracts the largest
notice aud the highest commendation
for its concepliea and working, and
which most strongly characterize the
college, is the industr al. In the 'act
that our g'rls ,'are learning the irdns
trial arte, there Is something that
touches a tender chord in the hearts
of the generous. Times are fo hard,
the pressure so severe, the exigencies
so imperative, that molest, shrinking
joung women are aiking for the priv
ilege i f csniing out to earn an honest
support snd help the family that ia
battling ursinst adversity. I confess
that when I look upon the f ir, bright
faces of these young girls, and think
how they, in pursuing a bread-winning
art, must suffer from the world's
coldness and lack of symp athy, my
heaitisiai. But a demand is upon
them that does not relent; and in re
sponse to the appeal of women, the
Suite has chartered the college and it
has started upon it mission. There
are here daughters tf cultured, re
fined parents who are learning book
keeping, telegraphy, phonogra
phy, free-hand drawing, designing,
and various other arts. I do not
ovjre'ati the caw when I lay that the
demand is Urge for tbis kind of in
t ruction snd preparation. Is there
anywhere spirit that would deny to
woman this ccance which she asksr
The poverty of the people has been
usea ss an argument luamit tne main
tecante of such an institution as tbis.
The poverty of the people, instead of
being an argument against it, is at ons
ana tne fame time the plsa and jusll
ncauon ot its existence, it sprang
oct oi me necessity wbich a long sue
cession of reverses snd losses hae
heaped upon us. If all our people
were rich they could educats their
daughters liberally and pay f jr it ; but
the v a -e not rich.
I will nit weary you by any farther
remarks on tbe nature and purposes of
tne institution. SuUioe it io say there
is large ana trequent call for places in
it dormitory which cannot now be
met. The hand of woman is out
stretched for help. When a person is
tne vitt m oi disease or vice or aiver
slty and is down, proetra'e and cower-
less, it is a noble thing to minister to
tarn and bis family, that they starve
not nor suffer, but it is a far nobler, a
more Christ-like work to strttsh out
the hand t) itrike off the fetters, t
enable him to stand erect in tbe con
sciousnees of bis own manboid and
to kindle within him fresh hopes in
pursuance of which he may workouts
worthy life-mission. This is the high
and honorable mission of this college
lor the women of Mississippi, not t
supr.0 t them in a state of dependence
and inactivity, not to treat them ai ob
jects ot charity, but to prepare them
ur tne walks ol sell-reliant usefulness,
to encourage them in their aspirat'oos
for that which is purest and beet, to
open to them new ways ol proper ac
tivity in duty-doing and thus make
their lives expressions of significance
and value in conserving the achieve
ments ol past civil attion and in coc
tributing to the cause of future pros
As the faithful representatives of tbe
people and etinding lor the verdict of
the future you will carefully consider
tne condition and needs ot institution
and do what in your judgment is bed
ur me people.
Now, therefore, in the came of the
trustees, wbo cordially invited you
hither, in behalf of the authorities of
Columbus, as well ai her individual
citlr.jDB, in behalf of these accom
pliahed ladies of the faculty and in bc
half of tne fresh, beautiful flower cf
Mississippi's young womanhood, I bid
you thrice welcome.
At the conclusion of the address,
Senators J. D. Yentrice cf PortUibeon
responded on beba'f ol tbe Senate,
and Kepresentst.va J. C. Longstreet of
(irenada, on bebaif of tbe House oi

lurther most agreeably entertained
with recitations of choice and beaut;
ful select oos, most effectually and
splendidly rendered byMissss Pauline
Or.', from Columbus, and Marie Bacon
from Winona, ot tbe faculty, and with
songs sung in strains of swec-tset
melody by Mrs. Franklin Harris from
Columbus, and Miss Ida Rust, from
Kaihville, the latter being of the
faculty, both of whom are highly ac
complished vocalists. There was also
another beautiful chorus rendeied
At the conclusion of these exercises a
half hour was given to toiial conver
sation, in which the young ladies of
the school were permitted to encage
and tt at, t03, with the gentlemen, old
snd joung, there assembled, which
was greatly enjoyed by all.
Thursday was spent by the mem

Ur daily exercises of the college were
carried on as usual. Recitations of
the various claases wero witnessed by
the visitors. This inspection clearly
demonstrated that there has been a
wise and judicious expenditure cf the
money already appropriated; that the
commoaious Dunuings, wun ineir iu
dicious arrangements for comfort,
health, and convenience, with ample
water supply, with gai and electric
light, and other appliances cf geneial
utility, are marvelously cheap for the
money expended, when it is seen that
the work and UniBb has been done
in fint-closs style. The curriculum
adopted for the collegiate department
will compare fivorably with most any
institution, snd the same is taught
iy an eminent hivi tr. The indus
trial and ornamental departments are
each com pit t and are presided over
una conducted by tho e who are ec
complishod in thoir profession. The
marked proficiency already attained
by the scho'sra in every denaittnent
and class shows pu'ient and thorough
training, ine systematic manage
ment and conduct of affairs generally,
and the degree of perfection reached
in so short a time bo 'peak a wonder
ful executive ability for the accom
plished aud liarned president.
.Much indeed has already been a
complisbed and much good bai been
done. Now the que lion arises, and
to the giila of our State it is a serious
one, shall this institution, on the suc
cess ( f which is lined the hopes and
In tare piojperity of so many cf our
daughters, be permitted to languish
and die for war t of proper sustenance
by tbe Suits? Are there those in
power who have such narrow views
and such short-sighted policy that
they would withheld the nurturing
care of tbe Slate and deny the means
necessary to carry on this good work?
Povorty wiU not do to plead against
liberal appropriations, for, as was well
said by Dr. Jones: "f overly is a plea
f r the establishment of such institu
tions ; that if the people were all rich,
there wuuld be no necessity fr
them." Ot coarse not, for with ample
private means we could educate our
daughters at expensive private tchools.
This school is in the interest of the
poor, and the poverty cf our people
demand Its support, and a liberal sup
port. On Frlc'ay morning at 10 o'clvk the
party left Uclumbus, pleased with the
city, grateful to the citizsns for their
elegant enlerbrnmeut, and especially
and particularly charmed with the
college, tbe girls, the faculty, and all
and everything connected therewith.
The lion. James T. Harrison, Repre
sentative from Lowndis and a mem
ber of the Board of Tru.tjes of the
College, had special chirge and direc
tion of the party. To bis active vigil
ance and earnest ni nnti.i ig atten

great extent, the success and pie a Mire
of the excursion. Tbe Hon. K. T.

the occadon by their kind attentiora.
We reached Meridian on our return
at 2 :30 o'clock p.m. The goad people
ot Meridian entertained the party in
fine style, dining them at several ho
tels and in private families. After
dinner all were driven out to the Eat

carefully inspected and found to be
kept In first-ciass style. The accom
