which were unanimously adopted:
Whereas, the startling intelligence

Hon. Jefferson I)avi?, ex-President ol |
the Southern Confederacy. There-!

1. That although debarred the privi- j
lege of a citizen of this government, j

of all brave men infinitely higher than
any who have falsified his life and who
may traduce his memory.
2. That we revere his memory as z.
ciiizen of the -highest qualities.
3. That we honor him as a statesman,
a soldier, a rnler and a pat.iiot.

of the Confederacy, and as one
subjected to the most debasing, humiliating
treatment, we hold his name
and memory in the greatest rcspect. j

the respect of all civilized nations.
C. That his memory as a man, a
soldier, a statesman, as commanderin-chief
of the Confederate Army and

ever be precious to us, to our homes
and in the memories of our children.

in his declining da\s, passed away
with ail endearment, of home and his

THE DROUGHT IS CREASES TUE
YIELD OF LATE CHOPS.
To the Editor of the Xcws and Jlerald:
I read in the Charleston Xeics and
Courier, the following.
Columbia, rcccmberS ? [Spccial:]Earlv
in November tic State Department
of Agriculture announced the
crop estimates of i:s correspondents,
of a careful tabulation, and according
to these estimates 'he \ield of cotton*
this year was placcd at 039,000 bales.
The reports of the correspondents on
which this 'estimate is made, about
September 20, when the plant looked
promising, bnt later in the season became
apparent that dry weather and
nnnsnallv f>arlv frost would STeatly f
affect the yield, and at tl:e figures
which were published the statement
was made that they were probably
"To make sure of the facts, Commissioner
Cutler some weeks ago sent
out to his township correspondents
for supplementary estimates of the
cotton crop. Several hundred replies
have been received of the average
date, December 1, and a tabulation
just completed shows that the crop of
1889 is only 5-13,208 bale?, against 558,000
bales last jcar, a decrease of
nearly 15.000 bales. The loss of 9G,0C0
bales from the September estimate
is accounted for not only by
drought and early frosts, but by the
backwardness of the plant and the
extent it went to weed after the
heavy rains in the summer/'
In t.nr section of i]ic country around
Fair view and vicinity on the high
lands iho ''drought" and ihc late frost
greatly increased t he yield, of the late !
crop, and in oider to make manifest
how fall drowjlf would hasten the

I selected a stalk 1 aving 10:1 bolls,!

where it would get ihe forenoon sun j
and b> ihe 20.h of November almost

"BEX BOLT" BY AMATEV11S.
Friday morning band-bills were

that the faniiiiar drama,. "Ben Bolt,"

Boat's Opera House, Friday niglif,

pathetic portrayal of 1 ho crosscs in
love ot "Den Boil" ami his "Sweet
Alice," it is not altogether what may
be considered a .masterpiece of melodrama.
It bus nevertheless some verv
strong parts. The characters were
well casted, such far instance, was
Mr. Albert Gerig in "Reuben liagp."
His peisonation of this vagrant
* as very happy and amusing in the
extreme. Mr. Geriy clearly possesses
no mean talent in llie histrionic art, and
would unquestionably develop into
a corr.cd:.an of the lirst magnitude.
Miss Lil Caldwell as ''Mary Moonlight"
sustained her trying and difficult
role with much credit to herself,
and provoked the admiration of a
large audience. This character demands
perculiar talent, in that, it is a
mixture of seriousness and lighthearted
gayetv of thoughtless youth.
Although these * are considered in
dramatic circles difficult characters to
personate, (axing powers to their
utmost, Miss Caldwell supplied tlie
Miss Annie Aiken and Miss Laura
Geng as ' Village Maids"; Miss
"Dimple" Elliott, Master Charley
E liott, Mr. Carl Matthews, Mr. Robert
Stevenson,. Mr. Max Siigenhciraer, as
"Smugglers," Mr. O. R. Thompson as
the rustic '-Colin," Mr. Murray Robinson,
as "Christian Comfort," and
"(he old schoolmaster," J. W. Hanahan,
as "Sptn* Bolt" had but 'little to
say and do, but said and did that little
Mr. W. D. Graullard's representation
of''Ivan Ironlink," the heartless miller,
whose subtle treachery and mean
jealousy, reeked the hopes of "Sweet
.Alice," and the rollicking ;<Ben"Bolt,"
was so well rendered thai there was a
thrill of horror in the audience for the
Mr J. J. Gerig's conception and
rendition of ^Bcn Bolt" was very fine;

after a long- absence from home and

ability; liis performance was unlike
an amateur, it resembled a professional.
Truely might Miss Lizzie Gerig's
impersonation be termed "Sweet
Alice;" it was so simple and natural,
devoid of any affectation: just as true to
life as though she were the real Alice.
Miss Ida Sugenheimer presided at
the piano with grace and manipulated
the chords with skill, and the Cornet
13alid gave as usual perfect satisfaction.
