"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

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

It is going to hurt the party In

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.

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.

The Governor is fortunate in the
appointment of David L. Ward to
succeed Judge Guion. If he does not
attain to real distinction in the judi

fact, many of his friends. He has a
well-stored and a well-trained mind.
He has the good fortune to be able to
convey his thoughts to others in a
clear and forceful manner. His in
integrity of intellect is as incorrupti

He will season justice with mercy,
and will hold the scales with a steady
hand, rewarding every litigant his
just deserts.
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.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any
