"But we arwnot yet far enough

where Albert Sydney Johnson died,
and the fatal field of Chancellors-

We are not yet far enough away to

We are not yet to far away to for

the bravest ot the brave and the
truest of the true, fought for the

died for the land they loved. We

unconquered. When time has meas

will not forget the suffering and the
sacrinccs of the brave men who so
reely gave their fortunes and shed
their blood to preserve the most
brilliant civilization that ever flour
ished in any lam. or in any age, for

"Historians will some day sit
down on our battlefields and write
true history; history which will
read like the wildest dreams of fan
cy that were ever woven into fiction,
and poets will linger among our
graves and sing sweeter songs than
were ever sung before, for each
monument is a volume within itself
of wild and thrilling adventure, and
every tombstone toucning as tne
soldier's last tear on the white bos
om of bis manhood's bride, tender
as his last farewell.
"I would not utter a word of bit
terness against the men who wore
the blue. They fought and died
under the old flag to perpetuate the
Union and they were foremen wor
thy of Southern prowess and South
ern valor, 1 would not, if I could,
rob Grant, the great and noble
chieftain, of his fame and glory.
Every Southern soldier ought to
stand with uncovered head when his
name is spoken, for when all was
ost in the darkest and saddest mo
ment of Southern history, he was
nous to Lee and kind to
his tattered and famished army.
"Along the blue lines of trium
phant foe, when the unhappy cou-
ederates marched between them
and laid down their guns, there was
no shout of victory, no flourish of
trumpets, but only silence and tears

the Confederate soldier proudly
stood among the blackened walls of
his rained country magnthcent in
the gloom of defeat and still a hero.
His sword was broken, his home
was in ashes, the earth was red be
neath him, the sky was black above
him. He had placed all in the scale
of war and lost all save honor, but
he did not sit down in despair to
weep away the passing years. His
slaves were gone, but he was still a
master. '1 00 proud to pine, too
strong to yield to adversity, he
threw down his musket and laid his
willing but unskilled hand upon the
waiting plow. He put away the
knapsack of war and turned his face

abandoned the rebel yell to enter

to enter the battle of industry and

land of desolation and death, the
land of monuments and memories,
has reached the springtime of a
grander destiny. The sun shines
bright on the homes and towerB of
new cities built upon the ashes of
the old, and the cotton fields wave
their white banners of peace, and
the fields of wheat wave back their
banners of gold.

land of Dixie, the finest opportuni
ty for investment and the richest
fields for enterprise and industry
ever known in the western hemis
phere are now open to all who wish
to come and help us make it blos
som like the rose. A new develop
ment has already begun. j hirty
years ago there was not a factory in
South Carolina. 1 o. day she is spin
ning and weaving more cotton than
she raises, and is second only to
Massachusetts in the manufacture
of cotton goods. And North Caro
lina and Georgia have made equal
progress with South Carolina in this
new idea of making the South not
only the leader in agriculture, but
also in converting our raw material
into finished articles of commerce
and trade, thus saving to our section
countless millions ot weaitu.
"The people did not realize that
the north rim of the valley was an
almost unbroken bed of coal and
that the south rim was an exhaust-
less bed of iron, and they placed
but little value on the vast parks of j
timber where the ax had never
gleamed. But now the dynamite
has just begun to jar the silent hills
and the forests have begun to fall.
Birmingham is making the sky of
night red with the glare of her fur
naces, and all the way np the valley
to the new City of Konoake, new
furnaces are being lighted and new
industries are developing. Ilunts
ville, Decatur, Chattanooga, Knox-
ville. Johnson City, and Bristol on
the line, will soon be great manu
facturing centers, where the pig
iron and logs of hardwood, which
are now beinsr shipped away to be
converted into finished articles, will
pass through our own mills, and we
will cease to be the fools we have
been in tne past, buying furniture
made in foreign cities out of our
own timber, and all the implements
of agriculture made out of our own
"Until twenty years ago the sons
of Mississippi, Louisiana and Ark
ansas were contented to sit on their
verandas and watch 'the nigger and
his lazv mule in the cotton fields
and listen to the melodies of the old
plantation, but now the mills of
Mississippi are beginning to mingle
their music with these melodies, and
the marshes of Louisiana are being
J converted into rice fields, and she is
1 makinsr enoush sugar to-day to
sweeten the tooth of the world.
Arkansas is building factories
and opening her mines of mineral
wealth and sawing down her great
forests of pine. At the close of the
civil war Texas was a wilderness.
But now the howl of the wolf has
given place to tire whistle of the
engine, and the whoop of the savage
has been hushed by the music of
machinery. From Texarkana to El
Paso prosperous cities and towns
have sprung up like pran le nowers.
Where the wild horse once galloped
and the buffalo grazed great geysers
of coal oil have solved the fuel
"In the full development of this
new idea of" transforming our raw
material into finished goods, lies
our hope of regaining our prestige
and power in the management of
national affairs and winning back
the billions of wealth which were
wiped out by the destroying angel
of war.
"God grant that our beloved old
South may be as happy iu reaching
the golden harvests of prosperity in
the years to come as she has been
brave and true through the suffer
ings and woes of adversity in the
sorrowful years of the past.
"And now, my grizzly old friends
who once wore the gray, in the
name of our young men I congratu
late you iu having lived to see the,
dawn of a brighter day for your
battle scarred and war-swept coun
try. You must soon answer to the
roll call of eternity aud join your
comrades on the other side. I give

they will ever defend the record

blessings of the Lord upon you and
