is the only North Carolinian who,

A noble tribute was paid to Vance
by Mr. Bryan in his book, "The First
Battle' He said that he was "one

ina, but by the entire country."
That is extraordinary praise, which
the people are better prepared to ap
preciate now than when it was uttered

better and because reflection upon
the career of Vance has informed
even them. Indeed, the two men
were very much alike in mental and
moral make-up, and the yoanger p
triot spoke of the older with the dis
cernment of sympathy.
Vance's predominant traits were
his devotion to duty ; his modesty,
and his sense of gratitude"grat!

I have placed his sense of dnty
first, because that overshadowed all
his other virtues. This inspired his
loyalty to a trust, which was abso
lute; and so to his party obligations.
Correlatively, he scorned a party bol
ter, but had an even greater con
tempt for the man who ought to bolt
but who retained the benefit of his
party's name while giving aid ard
comfort to tin enemy . Nevertheless,
he was charitable to the last degree
towards those who openly changed
their beliefs when free to do so.
Upon the surface, his most con
spicuous service to the State would
seem to be, either his conduct of her
affairs during the war, or his rescue
of her people in 1876 from a condi
tion which had been worse than war.
But tnose were things which his ge
nius and his patriotism readily en
abled him to do, great as they were.
Far beyond them, it seems to me, was
his stand for principle and party loy-
