THE HENDEliSON GOLD LEAF TMUliSDA MAY 12, 1910.
The Gold Leaf. ESTABLISHED 1881. -BY THAD R. MANNING. THURSDAY, MAY 12, 1910. "THE WAR IS OVER" A few weeks ago the Gold Leaf printed a very interesting article from the Burlington, N. J., Gazette, in ref erence to some kindly sentiments of admiration,respect and sympathy ex pressed by Gen. E. BurdGrubb (a gal lant offieerof the Federal army) In a correspondence relating to Senator John W. Daniel (an officer of the Con federate army) in his serious illness. Mr. Daniel at the time was thought to be in a dying condition at a re sort in Florida, but has since recover ed sufficiently to betaken to his home in Lynchburg, Va. The correspond ence in question was a noble tribute of one brave man to another, a tribute no less to the head and heart, the soldierly qualities and broad man hood of the author of such beautiful and lofty sentiments than to, the ob ject of their adulation. So, we were quite prepared but no less pleased, to note anotherincident in which these two fine personalities are concerned. This time, however, the same sentiments are voiced by others of the brave boys who wore the blue, did their duty when there was fighting to be done and quit when the war ended. At a large meet ing of the survivors of the 23rd Regi ment, New Jersey Volunteers, held at at EdgewaterFark.N. J., the home of Gen. Grubb, May 3rd, the 47th anni versary of the battle of Salem Church, the following preamble and resolu tion was unanimously adopted: WnEREAH. "We have heard with deep regret, of the illness of the ITonorable John W. Daniel, late Major on the staff of Lieutenant-General .Tubal A. Iarly, of the Army of Northern Virginia, and now United States Senator from Virginia; and. Whereah, Tt has pleased Almighty God in IDb wise Providence, to spare his life, and to return him to his home and family in Lynchburg, Virginia; therefore, Resolved. That we send onr congratu lations to the nonorable.Tohn W. Daniel, and express to him through onr Presi dent, our hope that he may live long and continue to be an honor to his State and to his Country. A copy of this resolution was kind ly transmitted to us by Gen. E.Burd Grubb, president of the Survivors' Association of the 23rd New Jersey Regiment of Volunteers, for which we thank him. Democratic mass-meetings in Wake county of late remind one very much of the old fashion Republican pow wows they used to have in Tim Lee's time. The Wilmington Star has dis covered that everything looks'Iike a ring to'the aspiring politician who Is outside the circumference of a'politl cal circle. It is going to hurt the party In Wake county and they had as well be figuring on that in the beginning. Durham Ilerald. But if some men and politicians succeed in carrying their point what does a little thing like hurting the party amount to? The awakening of Wake has surely produced a sensation. All reforms are brought about through much that tries the hearts of men. In a party of white men such scenes should never occur. Williamston Enterprise Reforms in what, and wherein the necessity for reforms in the case in question? But we fully agree with our contemporary in saying that such scenes should never occur in a party of white men. A Fit Appointment. Wilmington Star. The appointment of the successor of the lata Hon. B. F. Aj cock on the Corporation Commission will meet with heartfelt approval through out North Carolina. The appoint ment fell to Henry Clay Brown, who for !many j-ears has been chief clerk of the Commission. He modestly re frained from being a candidate for appointment, but Governor Kitcbin knew his man and the honor fell where it belonged. Mr. Brown's eighteen years service with the Cora mission qualifies him for a position that otherwise he is eminently capable of filling. The Commission needs a man of the experience and ability of Mr. Brown and his familiarity with its work and his fidelity to his duties should insure his retention when the time rolls around for the formal elec tion of Commissioner Aycock's suc cessor. Mclyer's Place. News and Observer. In his address at St. Mary's School alumna reunion yesterday, Bishop Strange said that when the future history of North Carolina is written, the historian will gay that the late Dr. Charles D. Mclver was the most influential and useful citizen of North Carolina of his generation. A gentle man who was present agreed with Bishop Strange and said that, in his estimation, it would not need the fu ture historian to make this estimate of Mclver's place, for his own gener ation had given him the place of honor. Bishop Strange was a student at the Universify of North Carolina with Dr. Mclver and then and afterwards was in position to know the value of his contribution to his generation. The liberal and broad minded bishop has himself been an inspiring force in the educational uplift of the com monwealth, taking high rank among the leaders of his day in promoting public education, as well as advanc ing the educational interests of his church.

Memorial Day Celebration. Auspices of Vance County Chapter, Daughters of the Confederacy. Ceremony of Laying the Corner-stone of the Confederate Monument by the Grand Lodge of Masons Address by Senator Lee S. Overman Introduction by Hon. A. C. Zollicoffer Large Crowd in Attendance Luncheon Served to Veterans and Vis ' itors. May 10th Memorable Day in His tory of Henderson and Vance County. Tuesday, May 10th, Memorial Day, was fittingly observed in Ilenderson. Indeed It was an occasion made memorable in more ways than the ordinary observance of this hallow ed day by speech making, pageantry of soldiers and civilians and decora ting the graves of the dead. The opening exercises were held in the court house beginning at 10:30. An Interesting program had been ar ranged and the auditorium was beautifully and appropriately dec orated for the occasion. The celebra tion was under the auspices of the Daughters of the Confederacy and the ladies had planned and executed well. Forming in front of Mr. A. C. Zolli coffer's residence the procession moved to the court house, headed by eight little boys and girls, David Jackson Cooper, Jack Young:, Jr., John Hilliard Zollicoffer, Thornton Gholson, Dora Woodworth, Lillian Gholson, Elizabeth Cooper and Martha Everett. The Veterans came next followed by the Daughters of the Confederacy and citizens. Mayor Henry T. Powell was master of ceremonies and his sallies of wit and good humor in extending a wel come and making announcements were happy and timely. Music by the Harriet Band was the first num ber on the program and the invoca tion was by Rev. I. W. Hughes. The musical numbers were a song by Mr. Asa Parham, song by Mrs. D. Y. Cooper, Jr., song by Mr. Lynn Tucker of Richmond, Va. Each selection was beautifully rendered and greatly en joyed. A pretty feature was the recitation in chorus by the children above named of the poem entitled "The Uniform of Gray" by Jackson Harvelle Ray. They carried miniature flags one-half the Stars and Stripes, the other half the Stars and Bars, and dressed in pure white their faces beaming with interest and enthusi asm they made a pretty setting to the picture formed by the grizzled Veterans and others. Elizabeth Coop er lead the march and her mother could not have done it better. The musical part of the program concluded it was decided to adjourn to the open air and have the speak ing from the porch ofMr.Zollicoffer's residence. There were several hun dred persons who could not get in the court house and they were es pecially desirous of hearing Senator Overman's address. This announce ment was greeted with applause and the space opposite the residence and at the side on the court house square was soon filled with an eager and in terested crowd numbering twelve or fifteen hundred of the representative citizens of Warren, Franklin, Gran ville and Vance counties, men and women, Confederate Veterans and those of the younger generation. The Veterans were given a position of honor immediately opposite the speaker and the Masons were seated just back of them. In well chosen words and pleasing manner characteristic of him on all occasions Hon. A. C. Zollicoffer intro duced Senator Overman paying high and deserved tribute to the distin guished gentleman whom the people of Ilenderson and Vance county de light to honor. As we are printing Mr. Zollicoffer's speech in this connec tion we withhold further comment preferring to let that speak for itself, in more eloquent language than we can command. When Senator Overman rose to speak he was greeted with enthusias tic applause. It was some little time before he could proceed, so cordial was the demonstration of welcome that he received. Senator Overman began by thanking Mr. Zollicoffer for his kind and complimentary refer ences concerning himself and the cor dial reception that had been given him by the people of this highly favor ed section of North Carolina He ex pressed the very great pleasure that it afforded him to be among the good citizens of Henderson and Vance coun ty, and the honor that he felt in be ing privileged to participate in the ex ercises of the day houorins: the mem ory of the Confederate dead, layiDg the corner-stone of a beautiful monu ment to departed heroes, extoling the deeds of valor, and imperishable fame of the Southern soldiers. Nor did he forget the living or fail to pay tribute to the resplendent virtues and hero ism, the patient struggles and loving sacrifices of the women of the South. Senator Overman spoke of the mag nificent monument that stands at West entrance of the capitol grounds in Raleigh, erected to the Confederate soldiers of North Carolina. He said he would never be satisfied until there is another one, a little bit high er, and grander, and more beautiful, at the East entrance to those crouuds greeting the sunrise, erected to the Confederate women of North Carolina. And the State that gave so many of her sons to the Confeder acy and whose fair daughters did so much for the cause, owes it to herself to build such a monument, declared the speaker. Senator Overman's speech was a masterly effort one of the finest Memorial Day addresses we have ever heard or read. Beautiful in thought, and fine in sentiment, expressed in language eloquent and ornate, and delivered with a readiness of speech and fervid ness of manner that bespeaks the finished orator, it met every expecta tion and reflected honor upon the distinguished speaker and the occa sion which inspired it. Our regret is that we cannot print Senator Overman's speech in full. It was greatly enjoyed by those who heard him and all felt themselves debtor to him. After the speaking the ceremony of laying the corner-stone of the Con federate monument to be erected on the court house square took place. The Grand Lodge of Masons offici ated. These exercises were interest ing and impressive and many persona for the first time witnessed the cere mony of laying a corner-stone. The Vance Guards turned out for the occasion and formed an escort of honor to the Veterans. Capt. TV. H. Wester, Jr., was in command, with First Lieutenant Richard J. Jones and Second Lieutenant Perry Rose. This was the first time the company had appeared in public since there organization, or change in the per sonnel of the officers, and they made a fine appearance and acquitted themselves with credit. Luncheon was served on the grounds to the Veterans, visitors and military company by the ladies. The repast consisted of sandwiches and coffee of which there was an abund ance. Dinner over the procession fornied and a goodly portion of the crowd went to the cemetery to decorate the graves after which the shooting match between the Veterans (men tioned elsewhere) took place. At night a public reception was given by the members of the Croatan Club and citizens of Vance county in the handsome and well appointed club rooms, complimentary to Sena tor Overman, the Daughters of the Confederacy, and Confederate Veter ans which was largely attended and proved a most delightful affair. Introducing Senator Overman Mr. Zollicoffer spoke as follows: Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: At the solicitation of the Vance Coun ty Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, and with the kindly as sistance of our able representatives in that body, the General Assembly of North Carolina, at its session in 1909, passed a resolution authorizing the May or and Doard of Commissioners of the town of Henderson, and the Board of Commissioners for the county of Vance, to appropriate, and pay, out of the public funds in the treasuries of the town and county, sums not exceed ing one thousand dollars each for the town and county, to the Daughters of the Confederacy, the same to be used by them in the erection of a suitable monument in the town of Henderson to commemorate the bravery and heroism of the Confederate soldiers, who took part in the great civil war, from 1861 to 1865; and especially those who were en listed from the territory now comprising the county of Vance, many of whom lost their lives, and many others of whom, having survived that memorable strug gle, have since been called to their final reward, or are now nearing the end of life's journey. The funds thus provided for, were not to be available for that purpose, how ever, until the Daughters of the Confed eracy had, by private subscription, do nation or otherwise, raised the like sum of one thousand dollars. Encouraged by that resolution, and with the same spirit of love and devotion which they have ever manifested, and which has always shown them to be the fairest, best and greatest of God's cre ation, and which characterized their mothers before them, during those dark and gloomy days of the civil war, when they freely gave up their best beloved ones, and sent them forth in defence of their country, and who in the absence of husbands, fathers, brothers and sons, spent long and weary days and sleepless nights in caring for and protecting those left behind and dependent upon them I say, that these glorious women, these angels of light and hope, these patriotic daughters of the South, went faithfully to work, and, to-day, by and with the aid of a generous and liberty-loving peo ple, and by the assistance of our true, noble, faithful and public spirited officials of this well governed town and county, they are happy and radiant in the enjoy ment of the fruits of their labors, having raised the amount required by the act of the General Assembly, given an order for the memorial, and have now met with this brilliant audience, these consecrated Masons, not with feelings of resentment or bitterness toward any, but with sweet love and charity for all, to lay the corner-stone on which shall be erected, and soon unveiled, the monument of granite, quarried from the hills of War ren county, designed and to be built by the sons of a gallant Confederate soldier, which shall stand as a reminder to gen erations yet unborn, that in the most memorable conflict history has recorded, North Carolina, out of a population of six hundred and thirty thousand white peo ple, sent about one hundred and thirty four thousand of the flower of her youth and manhood to battle for the Confeder acythat about forty thousand of these were sacrificed, dying either upon the battle field, or from wounds or disease, received or contracted in the service that not only were these precious lives lost, but of her substance she spent $26, 000,000 to aid the Confederacy in carry ing on that war the monument shall stand, not alone to remind those who shall follow us of the valor and heroism of our soldiers upon the field, but also of heroines of their love and devotion their faithfulness and loyalty to the State and the South; how that when our sol diers were almost naked and starving, the women of North Carolina, during the last three months of the year 1861, de prived themselves and their children of many of the necessaries of life, and sent direct to the lines, in addition to what they contributed through the authori ties, money and supplies to the amount of three hundred and twenty-five thous and dollars. It shall also stand as a lasting memorial to the untiring energy, zeal and loyalty of these Daughters of the Confederacy, and shall constantly bring to memory the fact, that verily North Carolina's people, soldiers and women, and this includes not only those born upon her soil, but also those who by adoption dwell within her borders were and are first in war, first in peace, first in love, first in all that is pure and noble and uplifting. Some thirty years ago, after that great struggle had ended, and the smoke of the battle fields had passed away and the people of the South had begun to recover from the ruin and desolation wrought by the war, and commenced to rebuild the waste places in the State, and to es tablish and build up a New South, the citizenship of this section of North Caro lina, in what was then parts of Granville, Franklin and Warren counties, with no desire to be freed or separated from their friends and neighbors save as the exi gences of the times required, appealed to the General Assembly of North Carolina for the establishment of a new county, which should be carved from the three counties above referred to. When the proposition had been discuss ed, the lines mapped out, and the details agreed to, then came the important question as what should be the name of this new born county. With one accord and with one voice, the people of these grand old counties counties rich in deeds of chivalry and patriotism, rich in their histories which abounded in love of liberty and fidelity to country proclaim ed that it should be named for one who loved North Carolina with his whole heart who loved the people of North Carolina with an affection unequaled in the history of this nation who, being one of them, having enlisted wi;h them, suffered with them, fought with them, marched with them, and knowing them as perhaps no one else knew them, loved the Confederate soldier next to his own life let it be named, said they, for the "Great War Governor of the South." And so to-day, this county with its progres sive people, its fair women and brave men, this beautiful Temple of Justice which we have erected and dedicated to law and order stands as a memorial to that great patriot that grand old statesman that splendid citizen that noble hero that gallant Confederate- soldier that ideal North Carolinian that best and highest type of Southern manhood, Zebulon B. Vance. So my dear friends, It Is doubly appro priate, that this spot, already hallowed with such sacred memories, should be further consecrated and dedicated by the erection hereon of another monument to the memory" of the world's greatest he roes, especially those who enlisted from the counties of Granville, Franklin and Warren, of whom there were 4,424; and of whom it can be truly and justly said, that of all the soldiers engaged in that terrible conflict, whether on the Southern side or Northern side, whether forming a part of the long lines of gray, or the long er lines of blue, there were none braver there were none truer there were none more courageous there were none more loyal there were none more worthy the honor and praise of their fellow country men. This day and occasion is rendered the more glorious and happy, in that we have with as to speak and' tell as of the heroism and deeds of valor of the South ern soldier, and of the glory, and purity and sweetness of her women one of North Carolina's most distinguished, eloquent and well beloved sons one who while too young to be actively engaged in that great struggle, knows well the history of that conflict knows well the fidelity and devotion to that cause knows of the sorrows, sufferings and privations of those dark days and how that noble band stood on all occasions like a great stone wall. One whose best thoughts, and tenderest feelings and emotions are always enlisted in behalf of these veterans who loved the cause for which they fought who reveres -the memory of those who : have gone, and J who loves tne uomeaerate sojaier wita' an affection already intense, and which shall broaden, and grow deeper and warmer, as the years of his life shall go by. One who has eerved his people and State in many important positions of trust, and has always been faithful, true and loyal who was the confidential friend and private secretary of our be loved Vance, of whom 1 have spoken, and who to-day, occupying as he does a seat in the greatest deliberative body in the world, as North Carolina's honored representative, measures up to the full standard the equal of any there is none superior. It is a high privilege, and my greatest pleasure to present the foremost citizen of this Commonwealth, Senator Lee S. Overman. While You're Living. Walt Mason, Poet Philosopher. Do good in the world as you're prancing along, and throw the har poon in error and wrong:; and always remember the man with a scowl is dense as a monkey and dumb as an owl; the man who is joyous fills others with joy and people will call him a peach of a boy. Oh, live while you're living and hold up your head, for 'a man never knows just how long he'll be dead! Drive all that's vicious and mean from your mind; be honest and tender and faithful and kind; don't criticise pilgrims who wander astray, but jolly them back to the straight narrow way; don't grumble around when you're doing your chores, but kick up your heels like a colt out of doors; gret what pleasure you can, for when all's done and said, a man never knows just how long he'll be dead! Sometime in the future your main spring will stop, and Death will come up with a skip, jump and hop; and when you are facing that grisly old cuss, and looking your last on the world and its fuss, 'twill brace you and cheer you, and let you down light to know that you always stood up for the right; you'll make no excuse for the life you have led, though you've no way of knowing how long you'll be dead. A Twentieth of May Sentiment. Charlotte Chronicle. The Uplift, the excellent monthly issued by the Jackson Training School, had in mind that during this month occurs the anniversary of the Mecklenburg Delara tion of Independence, and it besought of Mr. D. A. Tompkins a twentieth of May sentiment for its cover page. Complying with this request, Mr. Tompkins wrote: "If William Tell never lived, none the lesj does the story represent a sentiment that did live, and which will continue to live for all time, inconoclasts to the con trary notwithstanding. "If it could be proved that the meeting ascribed to May 20th never took place, still would the Mecklenburg spirit of in dependence in advance of that of the rest of the country survive. The emblem of the hornets, the resolves of May 31st, and abundant other proof of the in dependent spirit of the times survive to sustain the , fact that everything else here was in accord with the Declaration of May 20th, 1775. "The same evidence and plenty besides goes to show that there was a Declara tion." Mr. Tompkins' dislike for a controversy is well known among his friends, and. this is one deliverance on the Mecklen burg Declaration that is not calculated to stir up the critics. "There was a dec laration," and that is, after all, the main point. For More Than Three Decades Foley's Honey and Tar has been a house hold favorite for all ailments of the throat chest and lungs.

Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mueus lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you haye a rumbling sound or im perfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hear ing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is noth ing but an inflamed condition of the mucus surfaces.
