Wdtesday was a red letter day I
for Orangeburz, and it will long be re
membered as one of the most notable
in her history. It was the day ap
pointed for the unveiling of the hand.
some monument erected by our noble
women to the Confederate dead of the
old Orangeburg D istrict, an event that
every man, women and child who 4
loves truth and justice must have felt 1
an interest in. The day was all that
could be wished for, being almost
faultless, and the crowd was large and
enthusiastic. Everything worked like
clockwork, and passed off without a
hitch or accident of any Kind.
The grand procession left the dep:)t
about noon and arrived at the stand a
little later when the exercises of* ti
d,y were concluded in an approprialt
manner. The procession, which wa
under command of' (Jr-id IMAr to

When I har of the passing away

Inded of the sweet and sad lines of
iackeray touching the death of Col.
3wcome, the finest male character in
e realms of romance:
"At the evening hour the chapel bell
gan to toll and Thomas Newcome's i
nds ou'side the bed feebly beat the
ne and just as the bell struck a
cullar sweet smile shone o'er
3 face, and cifting his head
ittle, he quickly said 'Adsum,' and
1 back. It was the word we used at
hool when names were called; and lo!
whose heart was as tiat of a little
ild had answered to his name anT
iod in the presence of the Master."
At the conclusion of the oration the
on. Thomas Mr. Raysor, in a few i
asto words, presented Capt. Arm
rong with an exquisite Confederate
inner wrought out of cut flowers. In
cepting the tribute the gallant orator
Lid a handsome tribute to the beauty
Orangeburg's women, which he said
uld only surpass the beauty of the
wers presented him. The banner
as made by Mrs. Theodore Kohn, at
e request of the Monumental Associa
Xn, and presented in their name.
It was during the presentation and t
e soulstirring strains of "Dixie and c
,e booming of the German Artillery's i
nnon that the monument was un- a
)iled. Thirteen young ladies, repre
nting the organizations in the county, c
Bre assigned to pull the ribbons which i
leased the covering over the bronze
Idier. As the mantel fell from the
onze there was a mighty burrah,
bich went to-add to the roar of the
nnon. There were none but expres
)ns of admiration when the monu
ent was exposed to tull view.
The following are the young ladies t
ho unveiled the statue: Misses Lottie r
lisolm, Rowesville; Mable Dantzler
rovidence; Annie Dantzler, Orange- d

After the unveiling and the salute by c
e German Artillery the benediction d
is pronounced by the Rev. Mr. Elwell. 9
The crowd, with its thousands, did il
it disperse until after some red-hot a
idier called for a Rebel yell, which t
is responded to with an enthusiasm
the sixties. Then the throng began
scatter. The soldiers and veterans
mnt to the armories, where they were
ovided with dinner. The day's

s day for old Orangeburg and her
nfederate soldiery. t

(d poitical, that a closer alliance be
ween the inhihitants of the We3t and
outh is imperatively demanded for the
rpose of mutuil protection and ad
ancement aloug all legitimate lines.
Ve assert. that while this is true of the
outhern and Western b'ates, it is also
rue; that the manufacturing States of
ic East cannot enjoy prosperity, while
he South and West, are depressed and
re not provided with the money with
rhich to purchase the product of their
itories; and we declare that all materi
I matters whicti effect the general pros

Third-That, our Representat,ives in
ongress instruct the chief exccutive to
tue a call for an early con vention of all
tions interested in and favorable to
e free coinage of silver at the ratio of
t,o 1 for the purpose of establishing

Fourth-That the total amonut of

ction under the stimulus of its in
sased1 value is totally inadequate to
I)ply L,he demands of the world for

d we declare that such action on the

Lre it to be the dluty of ail patriotic

Fifth-That we are opposed to the

clare that the real purpose of the pro
sed issue of bonds is the perpet.uation

are unalterably opposed for the rea
a that it enables a few ielfish indivld
