The Annual Reunion.
The old soldiers who wore the gray
are this week gathered in New Or
leans in annual reunion. Forty-one
years have passed since the flag of
the Confederacy was furled at Appo
mattox, . and the great majority of
those who survived the War Between
the States'have since gone to the final
reunion in the great beyond. We
would have them with us always if
we could, because the south cherishes
the, principles for whi6h she fought,
and loves th6se who made in their be
half sacrifices than which the world
has seen none greater among men. In
New Orleans this week there are
cheers for the living and tears for the
dead, and again in a city intensely
southern the Stars and Bars float
above the southern army. In reminis
cence the veterans are living over
again the days between '61 and '65,
and in the parades elbows are touch
ing which touched last on fields of
The whole south wishes the veter
ans the best reunion in the history of
these annual gatherings. The south
yields to no other section in loyalty
to a country now reunited, but she
would not forget a past of which her
peoplet have cause always to be
The nation has responded liberally
to the call for help that came from
San Francisco immediately following
the great earthquake which well-nigh
destroyed that city. However commer
cial may be the age in which we live,
the appeal from a distressed people is
never unanswered in this country.
-With the meeting of the 6ounty
democratic convention on Monday,
Miay 7, .the political pot in this coun
ty will begin to boil. ,There has been
little interest so far in county poli
tics. Factionalism long since died in
Newberry county, and we are all of
one party. 'We are not agreed as to
many questions now before the peo
~ple of the state demanding solutien,
but it is i;o be., hoped that both the
state and county campaign this sum
mer wi'll be pitehed upon a high plane,
and that the people will cast their
votes with an eye single to the best in
terests of' South Cai-olina and of
N. ewberry county.
* St. Paul's Items.
St. Paul's, April 23.-The farmers
of this section of the county are well
under way with their planting. There
is a large .quantity of corn being
planted-more fertilizer used to the
acre for cotton-the acreage not more
; han last year-a large quantity of
oats sown. All on account of the
scarcity of labor.
St. Paul's observed Good Friday
preaching, preparatory service and
-council meeting, and missionary meet
ing by the women. The Lord's sup
per was administered to 158 commu

Snowdrift and Wesson Cooking Oil.
It is an innovation for the good
people of Newberry to attend the
demonstration of Snowdrift and Wes

the McCaughrin block this week.

A Lutherai Church For Silver Street.
A number of people intdrested in a
Lutheran church met at the home of
Mr. B. M. Havird of that'"place last
Saturday morning at 10 o'clock to
consider this subject. It was found
that if we had a church building, a
congregation of perhaps fifty memb)ers
could be omanized at once. .it was
found that a Sunday school of nearly
as many pupils could be organizedl. It
was also found that a very* commend
able effort had been made to secure
funds to erect a suitable church build
ing. In view of these facts it was
decided that we build a Lutheran
hureh at Silver Street. A large and
desirable lt was at once purchased
for this purpose and paid for. A fi
nance committee was appointed to
attenid to the financial part of this
work. Mr. H. 0. Long, of Silver
Street, S. C., was elected treasurer.
All those who have already subscrib
ed something towards the building of
this chtirch if they wish to save the
committee the trou}le of coming te
collect, can do so by sending contribu
tions direct to the treasurer and he
will send a receipt. Of course if you.
do noi wish to take the trouble to send
in your subscription, a member of om
committee will come to see you.
A building committee was also ap
pointed. Plans for a suitable churei
building are to be secured at once aiu
the w~ork of erecting the church is t<
begin as soon as convenient. While
this work is taken up with almost u.n
eqalled earnestness by those imme
diately concerned, still we do not hay
sufficient funds to build the churel
Thus we* appeal to all our brethre
for help. All who wish to help

contributions direct to Mr. Long c

How the Dispensary Law Is Not Be
ing Enforced, as Was Foretold
By Senator Blease.
Editor Herald and News: "It has
even been said that Governor Hey
ward has said he would not put on
the extra tax. Heyward has nothing
to do with it. The legislature has al
ready put on this half mill tax, and
the legislature by its act said if you
vote out the dispensary this tax shall
;be levied. Therefore. by voting out
the dispensary you vote on the tax.
Also, you will not receive any part of
the school fund."
"He also spoke of the fact that the
country was not policed as was the
town, and that it would be even more
impossible to suppress blind tigers in
the country than in the town, and said
they would flourish from the day the
dispensary was voted out.'
''After the dispensary. then what?
Blind tigers throughout the county
and social clubs in the town, with the
card table, the social drink and the
''Some say that they are voting
against the dispensary to get rid of
the clubs. If the dispensary is voted
out the vote does not affect the clubs.
They remain just the same. because
they are chartered institutions by the
state. So if the dispensary goes, there
remain with you the clubs, the blind
tiger and other ways of illicit liquor
selling, with no revenue."
"Your tax levy is now two and one
half mills for county purposes. If
the dispensary is voted out, it will be
necessarily five mills. The loss on dis
pensary profits for the remaining
months of this year will cause a defi
ciency in the present fiscal year which
will also have to be met by the levy
for the next year. Besides this we
lose all the money which we have been
receiving from the state dispensary
fund for our public schools, as this is
provided in the Brice bill."
The above are quotations from the
speeches of Senator Cole L. Blease
last summer when * the dispensary
question was being agitted. What are
the e6nditions today?7 Let's see. Dr.
Cromer says in his letter to the gov
ernor: "After conferring with a
number 'sof those who led in the oppo
sition to the dispensary in this county.
and. who are in fa;vor of law and or
der, I- am writing to ask: that you
send constables to this county to en
force the law against the illicit trame
in liquor. The law is enforced in theI
town of Newberry, but not in the
country and smaller towns. It is
bootless to argue * * * for what the
county nee is is an~ enforcement of the
law now. And it has beeonie clear
enough that the law will not i>e'en-1
forced outside of the towns,'' etc.
'How does this compare ,with the
statement' of Senator Blease last sum
mer? How does it compare with the1
fact that d'uring this week the mayror<
has tried and convicted three persons
for selling liquor within the incor
porate limits of the town of New
berry. If the law is being enforced in
Newberry why should the mayor be
punishing these innocent (7) persons?
Who. hollers first for the constables
to come to Newberry county? -The
citizens of Prosperity. Where next
the wail? Chappels. Next?. Poma
ria. Then comes Dr. Cromer..
