ed by its citizens. We just as wall .
have no State at all as to have a State' \
•that does not go the limit of its pow- ,
ers in vindicating its laws and sac- j
ceed in enforcing them to reasonable \
degree. I care nothing about the |
prize-fight as compared with what. I j
do care about the State and the law. '<
We talk much about progress in f
North Carolina, and by progress we |
seem to mean material progress. Let <
us understand at once that no amount |
of material progress will compensate j
for retrogression in respect of the <
fundamental principles upon which the jj
State lives. Roads will rot ctfmpen
sate for lack of law- enforcement.
Schools will not compensate for us- j
I urpation by invisible groups that as
sume without authority or responsibi
lity the powers and prerogatives of
the State. Public Health measures,
Universities and colleges will be
worthless in a State given over to spe
cial privilege, political corruption and
the rule of groups or machines. We
must preserve the life of the State it- i
self. .. j
There are abundant evidences that j
the time has come when we must give il
earnest attention to these matters, and l
if possible, bring on a revival of ap- Jj
predation of the fundamental objects ij
of governmeht, to-wit: Liberty,
Equalitv before the Law, Order, Jus
tice and the Rule of the peorde by
means of and under the form of law.
We are building a commonwealth in |
North Carolina. We must build upon j
the eternal foundations. Rather we
must maintain in our building the
great, eternal foundations our fathers
have handed down to us. In vain wlli
we heap upon material things for |
those who shall come after us. or for
ourselves, if we permit the founda
tions of the State to he impaired.
