THE STATE PBESS ASSOCIATION.
The twenty-ninth annual session of
the South Carolina State Press Asso
ciation waa held at White Stone Litbia
Springs, Spartanburg County, on
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of
last week, and it was one of the larg
est and most interesting meetings of
the organization in a number of years.
From the opening to the close there
were not many dull moments in its
proceedings, and the members who
failed to attend missed a royal treat.
The meetings were held in one of
the spacious parlors of the hotel, and
at the first session Senator D. E. Hy
?Vick, of Spartanburg, on behalf of
our genial host, Mr. Jas. T. Harris,
proprietor of White Stone, delivered
a most cordial and ?loquent address of
welcome to the Association, which
waB fittingly and eloquently responded
to on tho part of the members by Sen
ator J. W. Ragsdale, of the Florence
A most interesting programme had
been arranged for this meeting, and
nearly all the members who had been
appointed to prepare and read papera
on the subjects assigned them came
well prepared to perform their duty.
The subjeots of the papers brought
out other topics of interest to the
journalists, each of whom reoeived
new and practical ideas of our profes
sion from the experience of our fel
Wednesday morning the Associa
tion oonvened, and after hearing the
addrooQ of welcome and the reporta of
the officers, got down to business in
earnest. Three sessions were held
that day, two on Thursday and two
on Friday. There were many guests
at the hotel, and they were invited to
attend the meetings. These guests
manifested a deep interest in our pro
ceedings, and eapeoially in the inter
esting papers read before the Associa
tion, and the discussions that followed.
At the afternoon session on Thurs
day a memorial meeting was held in
honor of the late N. G. Gonzales, edi
tor of The State, who was a devoted
and valued member of the Associa
tion. Beautifnl tributes were paid tc
the deceased editor by a number of
The annual address at this meeting
was delivered by Col. Jos. F. Cald
well, editor of the Charlotte, (N. C.)
Observer, whose subject was, "The
Newspaper and the Editor." His ad
dress waB a most praotical and elo
quent exposition of the principles of
journalism and of the responsibilities
and duties of the editor, and no doubt
made a lasting impression on the mind
of every enc present.
One of the most interesting and
enjoyable features of tho meeting was
the banquet on Thursday evening,
given by Mr. Harris complimentary
to the Press Association, and to which
all the guests of the hotel were in
vited. It was 9.30 o'clock when tho
doors of tho spacious dining.hall were
thrown open, and for the next four
hours every editor, ospooially, forgot
the hardships of this life. An elabo
rate menu was served in fine style,
and it was relished and greatly enjoy
ed by the 300 ladies and gentlemen
present. President Aull presided in
his usual happy manner, and the
toasts were responded to most elo
quently and interestingly.
On Friday the sessions were equally
as interesting as those of tho preced
ing days, and much business was
transaoted. The Association had two
pressing invitations for the next an
nual meeting, one from Greenville and
one from Cheraw. Our host, Mr.
Harris, also extended ao invitation to
meet at the Spring again next year.
When the vote was taken it was found
that it was almost unanimous in favor
of White Stone. Mr. Harris thanked
the members for the compliment whioh
they had paid him in deciding to come
back there, and told just a few of the
many things that he ezpeoted to have
ready for our enjoyment nest year.
The following officers were elected
to .-arve the ensuing year : President,
E. H. Anil ; Vice Presidents, E. H.
DeCamp and N. Christensen, Jr. ;
Chaplain, Bev. W. P. Jaoobs, D. D. ;
Seoretary, U. C. Langston ; Treasurer,
August Kohn ; Exeoutive Committee,
J. E. NorineDt, J. M. Knight and
J. W. Ragsdale.
Late Friday afternoon the Associa
tion oonoluded its business and ad
journed, subject to the eal! of the
President. Thus ended the 29th an
nual meeting of the Association, and
we know we apeak the sentiment of
every member and the ladies who ac
companied them that it waa ono of the
most enjoyable meetings in the histo
ry of the organisation. Tho unbound
ed hospitality and kind attention of
Ile. Harris and his assistants will
long he remembered by our entire par
ty, all of whom regretted that our
stay could not bc prolonged.
A fine orchestra of accomplished
musicians is employed at tho hotel
and reuders sweet musio at intervals
during day and night. This, of course,
is highly enjoyed by the guests.
White Stone Springs hotel is one
resort that must be seen to be appre
ciated. More than a half oentury
ago there waa local interest in the cu
rative properties of the water, und
every Summer numbera of people
from the surrounding country went
there and camped for weeks, but there
was no thought of inviting others
from a distance to partake of the ben
efits flowing from nature's fountain in
great abundance. All this is now
changed, and in the last two years
wonders havo been wrought, until
White Stone has become celebrated
in all parts of tho United States. Mr.
Harris, the wizard of health resorts
in this part of the country, seems to
have an intuition for the development
of negleotod springs. His work at
White Stone is marvellous, and he is
just fairly beginning to unfold and
bring to perfection the plans he has
in view to make it an attractive Sum
mer and Winter resort. Nestled
among the hills between the Paoolet
and Enoreo he has found an ideal spot
for the fulfillment of his purposes.
The mammoth hotel sits on an hill,
and from its broad, long piazzas a
grand view is presented to the guests.
The building is three stories in height,
contains more than two hundred rooms,
and in the oentre is the largest kind
of a rotunda, whose cirole on each
floor will accommodate hundreds of
spectators. Every room in the house
is on the outside, and not a single
guest can ask for a change of looation
on the ground of ventilation. The
hotel is lighted with electricity
throughout, is fitted up with electric
bolls, water works and the latest im
proved sanitary arrangements, and in
Winter is supplied with steam heat.
The dining room will seat 300 people,
and on the third floor ia a ball room of
like dimensions, whian has more than
A hundred incandescent lights grouped
most artistically in the ceiling. The
hotel is surrounded with a remarkable
variety of beautiful trees. The grounds
are as yet in an unfinished state, but
work on them is going steadily on,
and they will soon be the pink of per
fection and beauty. Nature seems to
have not only made it a health resort,
but also a place af rest, recreation and
The spring is in the ravine and is
encased in a lovely marble basin, with
a heavy, attractive, oiroular rook foun
dation about four feet high, the spring
being jn the oentre of this elevation.
Over all this rises a beautiful rustic
frame structure with roste of cedar
altogether ?? ?e; j handsome spring
house. A olub house, billiard rooms,
howling alloy and tennis grounds near
the spring diversifies the enjoyment of
the visitora and renders more attrac
tive their sojourn.
An interesting place to visit is the
bottling works, situated a short dis
tance south of the spring. The wa
ter runs through a pipe direct to the
building, where a large force of hands
is engaged preparing it for shipment.
The water is shipped in oarboys and
in crates of half gallon, quart and
pint bottles, the latter being ginger
alo or carbonated soda water of differ
ent flavors. Mr. Harris is a persis
tent and successful advertiser, and is
shipping about a car load of his water
every day, which speaks volumes for
its merits, as the water has been on
the market only two seasons.
The spring is eight miles from the
M ty of Spartanburg, on the Asheville
and Columbia division of the South
ern Railway. The station was former
ly known as Rich Hill, but is now
called White Stone. Thc spring is
about two miles from tho station, and
Mr. Harris has built an eleotrio car
line from the hotel to the station.
This line is projected for a conneotion
Mr. Harris and his courteous assis
tants understand their business and
look closely after the oomfort of their
guests, lt is a pleasure to be their
guest, and ?f you visit there onoe you
will surely go baok ag??in.~
