Welcome! Velcome to you all this
evening. We al)preclate your pres
ence as a token ot the interest vou
feel in us.
To you, happy parents, you whose
eyes meet ours with a smile and look
of pride, we extend a hearty welcome,
for to you, we are indebted in innum
erable ways, for having successfully
completed this school term. Your en
couragerment has ever been an incen
tive to do our best; it is to please you
above all that we have striven and we
hope that there is not one disappont
ed father or mother in this house to
We welcome you, fellow-students,
who are working to reach the same
goal. To vou we can g,ive some little
advice and a great deal of sympathy.
Occasionally during the past year.
we've been discoura-ted. and many
iines worried. But there are in every
elass some trials and we should o-O on
in our work. giving our best knowing
there is an all-wise power working
for the good of His own. Ten years
ago we sta,rted out with a much larg
er grade, but as the years have passed
the number has lessened. so that now
we thave only eleven. 'We suppose it
is a part of our ill luck or misfor
tune that we girls have had no boys
to share the burdens and grave re
.sponsibilities of this the tenth grade.
We 'll admit that occasionally we
have missed them, but we will leave
it .to them and to others present, to
<decide whether or not we have need

Greetings to the honorable board of
trustees! We thank you for the in

cause of -ducation, and we hope that
the new building, you now have in
contemplation. will be entirely com
pleted before the opening of the fall
sessioan, and thai it will be so thor
oughly equipped in every way that it

Welcome. Mr. Idler, for we feel
sure, if you are present, you will ap
ipreciate our efforts, and will sympa
:thize with us too, or perhaps you can
:give as a word of commendation in
. your we:ekly remarks. You are a very
lenient critic compa'ked with other
,newspaper writers and we do not be
lieve you will think like some of
them. that there should be no gradua
'tion from a graded sc'hool. Those
who say that, 'do not realize the 'hap
,piness and pride that are tied up in
*a Newberrv Graded school "Sheep

will enjoy the program. for we~ have

an historian and a lawyer. May each

.pressions and memories in the antici

read of the class of 1909.
D-r. William Osler says: "Whether
'tuberculosis will be finally eradicated
is even an open question. It is a foe
that is very deeply intrenched in the
human race. Very hard it will be to
eradicate completely, but when we
think of what has been done in one
generation, how the mortality in
mai places has been reduced more
tha.a 50 per cent.-indeed, in some
places 100 per cent.-it is a battle
of hope, and so long as we are fight
ing with hope, the victory is in
The number of deaths during the
four years of the civil war was 205,
070. During the past four vear.s 800.
000 deaths have resulted fromr tuber
culosis alone in the Unitedl States.

item referred to yesterday. Asked
why he paid these amounts Mr. Curiel C
replied that it was because Simm had
iade the arrangement: that Simm to
confirmied aill demands inade by Far
Col. Felder next took up the mat- ce
ter of prices made to this State. Oi
Looking over the books Mr. Weston
had found no firm charged for goods m
at the prices that were charged in aC
this State. On a brand called "0. F. a
C.." the prices charged for half pints S(
were $9.75. while the bid to this ,
State was $13. Mr. Curie! etated Iat
the price.s to the other concerns out
of South Carolina must have beea on CI
blended goods. The pages i.n the
books were introduced as evidenee.
Preparing for the analysis he was
go.ing to make of Duffy's malt, Col.
Felder, through questions, had Mr. st
Curiel say that if he sold to South si
Carolina a cheaper grade of the malt
than that sent to other States he f
would be wronging South Carolina.
Then the test was made and the at
Duffy's malt showed up about the
same as the Hunter rye in the vial.
Mr. Curiel stated then that, emp-hasiz
ing 'his former disbelief in the meth
od, the same was a "humbug." At
torney Weston objected and t.he same
was put in the record- that "we do t
not .admit that the test is correct and
that -it shows the constituent parts of ci
liquor." It was also excepted to as le
to the introduction of this test and
its results in the evidence.
Both sides will bring experts here th
to testify as to the method employed .
in the test. Mr. Curiel stated that he
bottle from which the test was made
was not the same as was used at the w
time the State dispensary was in ex
istence. and that under the pure food re
law the formula for the whiskey had
been changed, though he did not know to
inl what respect. t
Leaving the question of the consid
eration of whiskey Mr. Cufiel was .th
asked about his operations with
James Farnum further. He referred
to the visit of Farnum two years ago, fr
when Farnum demanded commissions M
amount to about $10,000. "I regard- hz
ed his claims as exorbitant," said B:
Mr. Curiel, "and refused to deal li
with him.'' But Mr. Curiel said that s
Farnu,m could intimidate him as to
attaehing his account in this State.
He reviewed the operations of the pay
ing of commissions but did not give ~,
any instance of where he had been ti
told that the directors were to reeeiveK"
a portion thereof, but the same was
only hinted at to him.' He had no
basis of figuring in paying the comn- dE
missions to F.arnum or Wilson, but vi
Farnum had sent him a memorandtmn er
which lie had in his private fies..
This memorandum was asked for,
ad will be mailed back to Chairman
Murray, of t-he commission.
C~ol. Felder asked Mr. Cnriel why ba
Farnum 's n.ame was not mentioned in
:he affidavit, which Mr. Curiel signedW
n New York, when he' was visited a
yv Messrs. Lyon and Christensen,.
iembers of the legislative committee.
~Ir. Curiel said lie signed the state- pr
nent hurriedly, and did not note the ml
ast sweeping clause.to
After more discussion about thme ibe
ale of ''0. C. F." in other States,. a
-eeess was taken until the afternoon
ession. No. "O C. F." was sold inLi
his State. but thle bid was higher as
bown by the books than the prices ha

-;s. all s t(?inet't was mat'v ilar
the consideration of the claim of
illiam Lanahan & Sons,. of Balti
)re, and there was a tilt between
. Felder and Mr. W. A. Clark. at
rney for Lanahan. Col. Felder
ide quite a spicy speech to the com
ssion. in which he spoke in no un
rtain terms of the dealings carried
with the State dispensary by the
iiskev houses and agents. The re
irks of Col. Felder caused Mr.
ark to say that "unless the charges
e proved, Col. Felder has outrage
sly slandered William Lanahan &
mns." Col. Felder stated that if he
d slande.red the firm he is resplonsi
e personally and professionally.
Thiere arose a diticulty when the
iin of Lanahan Brothers was call
for in the commission's mandate
the las.t sitting were not present.
ie stenographers had not come. nor
A the chief blender. The under
inding at the close of today's ses
)n was that the expert blender Or
pervisor of this work should be sent
r immediately. Col. Felder laughed
the small number and "ladylike
ne" of the letters that were pro
ced with the mandate of the com
ssion. Mr. Clark's statement that
d. Felder had not acted according
the ethics of the profession in ask
x for the private correspondence be
een Lanahan & Clark Brotlrs
used some discussion, ending in the
nouncement of the commission's
airman and Col. Felder t1hat these
:ters would not be pressed into the
idence. and Col. Felder stated that
ey were merely asked for because
r. Lanahan sta,ted here that all let
rs would be produced.
Col. Felder was not pleased at all
th the production of books and the
n-production of the witnesses. He
ferred to the plenary power given
the United States supreme court
the commission, and said that if it
k until i0hristmas he was willinz
stay here until the proper books
d witnesses were produced. He felt
at there was more than the money
volved at issue in the claim that the
ate of South Carolina had been de
auded. He referred to the test
ide during the morning with Lana
.n's brand of whiskey. the Hunter
iltimore rye. He will produce wit
ss 'here on t-he 15th, or perhaps
oner. to testify as to this test.
