We acknowledge with pleasure a mu
sical treat from Mr. Munson's String
Band on Saturday night last, -ome
where about the "wee sma' hours". It
was deliciously sweet and highly relish
ed by the entire household, not except
ing the baby boy who lay as still as a
mouse. We urge the objection, how
ever, that it was too short, but suppose
it was rendered so by reason that it was
so near the Sabbath. Come again, gen
tlemen, when you can stay longer.
What More Delicious.
The ice cream season was opened on
Friday last at the Confectionery Store
of Mr. A. C. Jones, and from the de
mand thus far made he will find it no
easy matter to keep up a full supply.
Our people appreciate enterprise, espe
cially when so much to their taste; no
wonder then that Jones' cream and
cake are so much sought after. The
ladies especially will feel gratified in
having a place in which they can com
fortably sit and take their cream-a
pleasure heretofore denied them.

o a very good audience. There has
een a great improvement in the acting
f some of the Club; this was specially
nticeable in Michael Warden, who
layed his part on this occasion very
ell. The piece gives more room for
ecitation than acting, the sentences be
ng often very long and complicated.
Dr. Jeddler and Mr. Snitchey rendered
heir parts admirably. Miss Grace
eddler was the personification of grace
itself. Miss Marion's part was well
erformed. Benj. Brittain and Clem
ency Newcome put a greait deal of life
into the performance by their natural
ad amusing acting. The others, in
less conspicuous parts, did well. The
ime between acts was rather long, but
the interim was filed in by excellent
music from the Thespian Orchestra.

The Newberry News was in a criti
cizing mood last week. Its righteous
soul was sorely vexed by an article or
two in the HERALD, and it finds reliefi
in an unwarranted, unprovoked and
unfair attack upon this paper. We
don't object to fair criticism; we don't
object to honest differences in opinion.
But if the News wanted to be fair
why didn't it print our articles-not
garbled extracts-that its readers might
see them and judge of them for them
selves. Had it done this, we should
have had less to complain of. We
are willing to stand by what we have
written; we believe our position is cor
rect. We know it is honest. We have
never stopped to inquire whether it is
popular; because we do not trim our
sails to suit the peculiar views of any
class, sect or order of men. We try to
advocate and sustain what is right, and
condemn and put down what is wrong,
so far as our duty as a journalist ex
Now as to "HERALD Hits", we have
this to say: that our sole desire was to
put a stop to what we considered a de
moralizing and illegal performanee,
carried on in public view and calcula
ted to ruin the young men and boys of
our town and community. We did say,
and still say, that it was the duty-the
sworn duty-of certain officers of the
law to suppress it. These officers have
had nothing to say in their own behalf
against us for reminding them of their
duty. Why should the News object?
Is it their spokesman? Or has it rushed
voluntarily to their defense? We did
call upon those who were prominent in
advocating "morality and reform" as an
issue in our last municipal election to
put a stop to this gambling establish
ment-any one of them could have done
it in twenty minutes. We now say,
they should have done it. And we fur
ther say that consistency required them
to do it. If we have done them an in
justice by reminding them of this fact,
we beg their pardon. But who author
ized the News to take up the cudgel for
them? Its interference is not only un
solicited, but unauthorized. The HER
ArD is just as desirous of securing mo
rality and reform as the News, or as any
citizen of this town; and has proved its
position by advocating these measures
boldly, fearlessly, consistently and inde
pendently; without stopping to inquire
who would be pleased or who would be
offended. In doing this it has not hid
den itself behind any party or organiza
"But the advertisement was allowed
to appear." Yes. and every decent ad
vertisement is allowed to appear; but
nobody is fool enough to believe that
the editor of a respectable newspaper
can be bought for a seventy-five cents
advertisement. The Hmna1n doesn't
sell its opinions, and is not, silenced by
bribes in the shape of advertisements,
whether they be great or small.- But
the advertisement was allowed to ap
pear in the News, too-and that is all
that did appear; but we give the News
the benefit of the doubt, and take it for
granted that it did not know that there
was a gambling establishment going on
next door to its office. Enough on that
As to the other matter-the secret
sessions of the Grand Lodge of Good
Templars, we lave something to say.
The Temperance cause is altogether
different from the Knights of Honor,
Foresters, Masons and Odd Fellows.
These, so far as we understand them,
are more after the style of close corpo
rations; their chief object is to benefit
their members. Not so with, the Tem
perance cause: its object is to aid all
who need aid; it ought to be, and is in
tended to be, aggressive in its policy
and reforming in its influence. It knows
no class, no rich, no poor, no high, no'
low. Its doors stand wide open to wel
come all who need its fostering care
and support. It is second only to the
church in its ends and aims. Its design
is a noble one; and we hail with glad
ness every success of the cause, and are
ever ready to lend our aid to its ad
vancement. To win success the tem
perance movement must influence pub
lic opinion, and the best way to do this
is to bring it mnto vital contact with the
public. Public meetings would do this.
We lump together whatever else we
have to say, and close this article; for
it has already taken up more space'than
it deserves. The News says: "Would
that paper have expressed the same
opinions were our leading men advo
cates of this cause ?" We suppose that
the leading men of the place are advo
cates of the cause, in the sense that they
desire to see intemperance eradicated.
The News asks a question, but it has
not the candor or the manliness to give
the answer that it seeks to suggest. Our
answer is, yes; and we further say, that
if the News intimates that the expres
sion of our opinions is influenced by any
such considerations it intimates what is
false. The statement in the next para
graph, that we have "cast slurs" on the
Grand.Lodge of Good Templars is ab
solutely false-with no "if" or "ands"
This sort of discussion is always dis
tasteful to us under any circumstances,
and especially so in this case, on account
of the fand.ly relationship existing be
tween the publishers of the News and
of the HERAu. This fact itself would
have constrained us to pass the .News'
articles by unnoticed if we could have
done so with justice to ourself.
We will add a few remarks of. a
personal and explanatory nature, in
reply to the Laurensville Herald,
whoe Senior Editor is the Grand
don't see how it could be misunderstood
that their secret sessions so excludei
them, as a Temperance Convention
from the outside public that it prevent
ed their making-not as individuals
but as a Convention-thn impressior
they would have made h.d the outside
public been invited to attend their meet
ings. We have no doubt that the indi2?i
dual members made the best sort of im
pression upon those whose acquaint
ance they formed. Nothing was fur
ther from our intention than to speal
lightly or disparagingly of the delegates
In the first place it would have been
most impolite, as they were the guests
of our town; and in the second place
they were men who are entitled to- the
highest respect and conaideration both
on account of their personal worth ani
the cause they represented. The dele.
gation from Laurens and Clinton, with
most of whom we have the honor of a
personal acquaintance and several o:
whom are friends of many years stand
ing, would dignify any body. And we
suppose these may be taken as a fair
sample of the whole. "The head and
front of our offending" amounts simply
to saying that the Grand Lodge of Good
Templars would accomplish more good
to the community in which they hold
their Conventions if they would bold
them with open doors instead of secret
Having written both the articles in

I prefer to sign my own name to this.
W. H. WALLACE,
A Reply to the Herald.
In its last issue the HERALD, report
ing the proceedings of the Grand Lodge
of Good Templars, says:
"Why the temperance people should
hold secret sessions we cannot possibly
If the writer of that paragraph will
join the order he can then conceive.
We suppose this is the first time such a
question has ever been asked. Why
does any society hold secret sessions?
If it was a political meeting, there would
be some cause to grumble. It is a very
hard matter to induce men to connect
themselves with the cause of temper
ance. (so much the more unfortunate
are the apparent slurs of the "author of
that opinion"), and the secret work of
the order of Good Templars is nothing
more nor less than what we consider
beautiful forms and ceremonies, whose
beauty would be marred if revealed tc
the uninitiated. The entire business ol
the Grand Lodge sessions is transacted
in the secret ceremonies of the order, as
it is in the Subordinate Lodges. Why
do not these Sub. Lodges give up theix
pass-words, signs and degrees, and hold
their sessions with open doors every
week? Why do not the Knights ol
Honor, Order of Foresters, Masons and
Odd Fellows, invite the public to all
their meetings? The idea is ridicu lous
in the extreme when we take into con
sideration the fact that the secret parn
(not such a terrible secret after all)
could be construed as an inducement tc
many to enter the ranks. This is appli
cable to Grand and Subordinate Lodges
of all Orders. Again:
"To the public it looks like eithez
phariseeism or timidity."
Now, while the News is not the organ
of the temperance movement, but a po
litical, news paper, whose columns,
however, are open to the success of the
cause, yet we cannot let the above
thoughtless and unjust remark pass un
answered. No doubt this last-quoted
sentence from the HERALD made a few~
bar keepers smile with unfeigned de
light, that their cause received such heli
from a source which, if it cannot say
anything good, should certainly say no
thing detrimental, when speaking of a
noble work. What is the object of such
remarks from our contemporary? We
are at a loss to conceive of it. It re
quires no argument to prove the unfor
tunate bearing of such utterances. The
HERALD knows that the membership ol
the order in Newberry is very small.
Would that paper have expressed the
same opinions were our leading men
advocates of this cause? Is it ashamed
to take the lead? And again:
"A bold move, open, public, above
board is the way to carry public senti
There is something in that remark.
We are glad to see that the HERALD iS
not "on the fence" on this subject. Ii
has shown its boldness by openly cast
ing slurs on a dignified and respectable
body. If such is not the case, why thi
"What impression did they make on
the Newberry public?"
We are truly sorry to read such a re
mark on a subject so important as the
one under discussion. It would have
made a much better impression on the
Newberry public if the oldest paper in
the town had come out boldly and open
ly in its favor, or even had it just simply
noticed the proceedings without such
unfavorable comments. Every man tc
his own opinion will have nothing to dc
with these remarks. We can only say
that it is very unfortunate that a lead
ing paper should seek to bring reproach
upon a cause that is striving and strug
gling and battling for a good purpose.
If leading men and journals would come
out boldly for t'e right, the sad specta
cle of a reeling citizen would not be
seen upon the streets of a community.
