Ayork in an interview tonight, "but I talk war and the Kirt North Carolina played in the war lieraiisr they show what an amused citizenship ran da The Mine spirit that caused North ( arolina to make saenhce and heroic effort in war will, if energized, allow no limit to Ik' placed Uon her won derful achievements in time of peace. "1 rejoice in this reunion of resi dents and non-resident citizens. It lias brought together, from all over the world. North Carolinians, whi records show that native talent rises to the ton wherever it g'S; and it has emphasized the accomplishments of those who remain within the Mate. "The reunion causes the general public of the I'nited States to look with interest uhhi this common wealth. It will inrrMse State pride and must arouse dtvicr loyalty and patriotism. It will advertise our marvelous resources and will pn mote a fraternal Fciitimcnt that will be helpful to residents and to the Old North State. 1 consider it a pleasure and a privilege to be in Cireensboro today." This expression of (lovernor Ay cock is echoed by the 15,000 resi dents of this city, by the 5,000 visi tors, and by the representatives of 27 Slates who have come here as native North Carolinians to take part in the reunion. Living up to well established nwrd.tinvnsboro is at its best play ing host. With better hotel fneili-tii-s than any other town in the State, with a crack club, with "headquar ters" of one kind and another at al most ever)- comer, and w ith evidence of preparation in all other essential resMvts. Cireensboro is extending the glad hand of welcome to all visi tors, and, incidentally, is siidiiig slmut i8,(XK) in furtherance of their pleasure. There is rife here a fraternal feel ing that is good to feel. Men w ho have been out of the State furs quar ter of a century are shaking hands with friends of boy In ml days. 1Hig separated relatives meet joyously in the streets. Successful North Caro linians who have found success abroad are giving and receiving con gratulations; fur both resident and non-resident Carolinians are protest ing that in the pure Anglo-Saxon drain that is breeded here there is dominating quality that finds praise worthy recognition whether it stays at homo or goes beyond the borders. There seems to be aroused a fuller intelligence of the glorious traditions and the greatness and growth of the Slate -, and uch honorable conceit is exultant in thesurenessof its knowl edge. The day has been filled with un usual interest. An audience more flattering in personnel than any oth er gathering that ever assembled in North Carolina greeted the shakers at the formal exercises in the Grand Opera House this afternoon. F.x-Xenator Ransom an aged Ro man who tower yet graceful and strong presided over the meeting. Speeches were made by such men as Bcv. Dr. W. V. Mow of Richmond, Rev. Dr. A. C. Dixon of Boston, Gov ernor Aycock, Col. Ja. T. Morehead of Greensboro ; Hon. Frank K, Sho ler, Congressman-elect from the 1 7th district of New York; Dr. R. P. Ml. president of Converse College, 8.

Mae theSupreme Court bench, and Judge Douglas, assta-iate justice; Mr. Mural Halstead of Cincinnati, the famous author and newspaiier man, and many others, whose name arc fa miliar in this State and other States, were there, also. The speech-making was impres sive and varied as to interest ; and yet each sxker touched upon one main theme. 1 his was love lor State. a noble Fatherland. No man failed to voice pride in hi heritage, and common utterance pictured .Norm Carolina in the van of prosiierily. Such faith seemed not mere rhetori cal prediction or pretty tribute to the occasion, but simple earnestness. "We are the greatest ieopleon earth," declared (iovernor Aycock. And there was silent and unsurprised as sent from everybody in (irecusboro today. The Ever Present Chin Whiskers. I was wondering what the thing would lie like, and the minute after I got to tircensUiro on the early af ternoon train I began hurling ques tions at Mr. Red liuck of the Obser ver, who had lieen on the grounds since Sunday. . "You asked me what has impressed me most," he said. "Well, come here and I'll show you." He. pointed to two old men who were standing out in the street and working each oth ers' hands like pump handle. "There it is, said Mr. lied Buck. "Now, those old fellows haven't seen each other in 30 vears. One of 'em has stayed at home ; the other has been out in the wilds of Miintana. Hut they scallop their chin whiskers in exactly the ame way." i was tme. hach man was devoid of mustache, and each wore a fringe I whiskers below a half-ban' under lip. "That beats me," continued Mr, Red liuck. And I never saw so much of the same kind of scalloped whiskers in my life. I am led to conclude that the North Carolinian is a determined sort of a fellow who doesn't change his customs, no mat ter where he gix-s." No Delocallaatlon. Red BiH'k't quaint discovery indi cated one great truth : North Caro linian do not become delocalizcd Whether their new habitat be Maine or California they retain their indi viduality, their manner and habit if siieech. Not every man wore scalloped whisker. Indiana, which sent the largest delegation of non-residents, was particularly marked for exhibit ing the odd characteristic, and there were chin-whiskered representatives of other States and from North Caro lina ; but all these and the men who did not affect the habit found kin ship in speech and idea. In the throng that came from all part of America there was no note of discord and the men were as much at home with one another a if they had all pent their Uvea within the borders of one commonwealth. They wear well and stubbornly--these ' North Carolinian. They do not become a part of the opposite element of any other State. Once a chin-whiskered gentleman. That is the idea. Th Speech making. The speechmaking was such as one would expect it to be. It was rery good. It wa appropriate. On the whole there wa nothing in it to rave' about no utterance that will pas down to posterity. Governor Aycock gave an interesting resume ol what North Carolina bad done, and he spoke well, as is his wont The other addresses or response were exactly suitable to the occasion Then was do frentied oratory, and yet in the dignity and quiet strength Iver. ant asked hi make a lew re lit the sneaker was something to be marks. Mr. Hart lei t wa born in proud of. Humor was not manifest-: Guilford County, but left here long ed, but words of jubilation, of insi- before the civil war. He taught tent pride, felt almost as a repeated , school here, but is now a well-to-do challenge. "I will make no com pari-1 banker. He is a unique character, sons."

Mr. Bartlett i well educated but he has a iiceuliar pronunciation. His speech was enjoyed by hi near er for thev urged him on and on. Hon. Jieph M. Dixon, the lone Congressman fnxn Montana, made a smart, bright speech. He made an impression on the audience by say ing that he had not onlr brought himself back to North Carolina, but had brought his wife and three little half-breed Tar I Kris. He declared that the best tred Anglo-Saxon came from the law-abiding. God fearing people of this Slate. Mr. Dixon is a young man w ho left Ala mance twelve year ago anil went West. lie was elected by the Repub lican of his State to Congress. He seems to have a bright future before him. He left this State, he said, be cause of the spirit of intolerance in politics. Dr. laul Barringerof the Univer sity of Virginia sxke next. He is a man of great power. He has a giant intellect and superb learning. He never fails to say something worth taking home with you when he makes a sieech. He said today that North Carolina always put her stamp on her children. Like the homing pig eon, they have the homing instinct. e have a State love, but not a Slate pride. He declared that the State love was better and tliat we hail mod esty. He closed saying that our State inotUi told the story: "It is better to le than to appear." Mr. Mural Halstead, the accom plished newspaier man of Cincin nati, told of lus ancestry and his con nection with the Stale. He capti vated the audience by his droll and careless way of putting things, lie said, "Carelinner," and talked to him self. His every move made his hear ers laugh. He is a very interesting character. Rev. A. C. Dixon of Iloston made a few remarks. He is a pulpit ora tor of the kind that sways multitude with his fiery tongue and forceful gestures. At one time his hands are clasped behind his back, and again they beat the air with clinched hst. He is a mover of people. He arouses the impulses in a man. He soke today with good effect. He is a tall, striking man. Why They Leave the SUte. The most profound siieeeh of the day was made by Mr, Walter II. l'age, the learned editor of The World's Work, New York. Mr. Page has an attractive face, but it is not hand some. He looks the part of the care ful, hard student that he is. He al ways gives his hearers something to think about. It was so today. He sHke like a man that has a fixed purpose in life, lie is battling for a goal. Among other things he said : North Carolinians leave the State because they belong to that world- conquering race, it is a good thing for the I nited States, lhe outside world needs what we can give and we have plenty of it hero to spare. There are but two sources from which the Americans spring nowa days. We have one an i New Kng- land the other. There are two kinds of men in this world, those who lead and those wh.i are willing to be led. We can be the leaders. It is mainly a mutter of blood, of will, You ere beginning to find the way through education and industry. We will fultill the great destiny that we have the good fortune to bo here for, Mr. ntge is a serious man. lie is fighting for a cause. His speech was from the bottom of his heart. Judge Jeter C. I'ritchard of Wash ington was called on for an im promptu speech. As he came for ward the throng of people cheered him. He was given a cordial wel come, lie declared that tne woms of Greensboro on this occasion would ultimately bring government appro priations and protection for the Guil ford battleground. Dr. h. A. Alderman of Tulane University, Ijouisiana, closed the speechmaking. He spoke like the orators of old. He is always eloquent and graceful. His speech was a gem He is easily the most polished public speaker in this country. He has the silver tongue anil the Chesterfield manners. People rave over his elo quence. He spoke well today. Dr. Alderman is in tine health, lie has wrinkles in hi 'ace, but they come from fat pnisperity, rather than age. sentences reminded me of passages fmra Urna Ikxne. The Real Reunion. And the real purn of the ocra sion was hardlv expressed in the for mal exercise. The reunion is taking place on the street of Greensbon in hotel lobbies, in groii that stand at street Corners, in private homes The reunion is felt when one man clasps another' hand. I saw Governor Ayork standing on the street in front of the IVnbow Hotel, the central figure among manv people. Native North Camlinians from a score of States came up and shook his hand or slaped him on the back, and then faced one another and talked about their people and prosperity and adversity each man wearing on hi face a Imk of honest symalliy. The man who hadn't succeedcii is congratulating the oth er fellow w ho had won success, and every man who had a word to say, found ready listeners. No man was better than another man ; and plain Jones stood unabashed beside a frock coat. Tobacco was swapped ; the native lie was made to vie with the yarn that was fresh from Nevada, and a laugh crowned the contest, liig hearted and broad shouldered men, with well Mised heads were all aliout taking time to claim common aueestry to sincerely play at being brothers. That is the reunion. It is going on everywhere in Greensboro ami all the time. The Second Day. Several thousand people attended the exercises of the North Carolina reunion on the Guilford battleground. Siiecial trains ran between the town anil the meeting place all day. It has been a glorious nay. At 10 o'chs'k this morning the splendid crowd had assembled on the hills over which the forces t Greene ami Cornwall is fought, and the whole countryside was alive with men and women. Swarms of pretty college girls were there, licaring colors and Hags. It was an inspiring sight. Many of the guests of honor had gone out in carriages and tallyhos. The college students and citizens of the town and visiting residents of the State went on the trains. The exercises were held at the large ocn air pavilion to the left of the railroad. It was packed seats, aisles and ros trum. The jieople seemed eager to hear the distinguished sons, who hail returned to the home of their nativ ity to celebrate with their old friends and neighliors. They pressed for ward and filled every nook and cor ner of the auditorium. Women as well as men stood for hours and istened to the speakers. Their ef forts to sec and hear were well rewarded for no North Carolina au- licnce ever faced more able men. Among those on the stage wen1 Mu ral Halstead, Dr. V. St. Clair, alter II.

Mdver acted as mas ter of ceremonies, while General Ran som presided over the meeting. The first siieuker of the day was Mr. Shepherd, Bryan of Atlanta, who is a native of Craven county. Mr. liryan is a young man of ability, charming address, gentle manners and train ing. He made a most happy short seech. He was not on his feet long, but he spoke well, lie was billowed by Judge Fitzgerald of Nevada, who went from Rockingham county four years ago. Mr. r ilzgerald told sev eral very laughable stories and at tracts the attention and won the admiration of the crowd. Mr. R.
