The Old "Vets" to Meet Their Comrades
in Charleston-They Will Be Accom
panIed by Five of Clarendon's
Sweetest Flowers - Hurrah
for the "Vets."
There was a sight in the court house last
Saturday which was worthy the descriptive
brush of an artist-the gathering of Harry
Benbow Camp of Confederate Veterans,
At this time, when the country is on the
tiptoe of anxiety, not knowing what the
morrow will bring forth, and in all proba
bility the tocsin of war will be sounded
before another sun goes down, there were
assembled about fifty men whose hair was
frosted by the winters of age. Some of
them walked with a limp, others with an
empty sleeve, and still others whose wounds
were many, but covered with their clothing.
These men had tramped the hills of Vir
inia; these men responded to the call of
their country, and truthfal history has
erected a monument to their loyalty, devo
tion and bravery, such as has never been
written before and which will always be
pointed to with pride. The men who as
sembled on this occasion were the followers
of the immortal Robert E. Lee. Before the
opening of the meeting these battle-scarred
"Johnnies" fought over the entire war and
recounted their joys, sorrows and hard
ships. It was indeed a beautifully sad
picture to look upon. To think that this
group are journeying down the hill of life
and a majority of them have nearly reached
the bottom; notwithstanding this the fire
of patriotism still sparkles in their eyes.
One of the number sat on one side; his
hair was white, one arm was gone and the
world was dark to him, but as he sat and
listened to the remarks of the chairman his
sightless eyes at one time appeared to open
and with the remaining hand and one foot
he joined in an applause to some patriotic
In the absense of Commander C. S.
Land. Vice-Commander D. J. Bradham
took charge of the meeting and he read ex
tracts from a letter from Major Land ex
pressing his regrets that indisposition pre
vented his attendance. Captain Bradham
then gave his comrades a talk, during
which he referred to the "days gone by,"
and in a pathetic manner he alluded to the
work that Father Time was doing. He
spoke of his anxiety to have Harry Benbow
Camp well represented at the Charleston
re-union and the kind invitation of the la
dies of that city to entertain, and he urged
that as many as possible take advantage of
the trip. Then he told them that he wanted
the "boys" to assenable in Manning on the
26th and march to the depot to the tap of
the drum after partaking of a barbecue
which would be furnished them; that they
would have a car to themselves and have a
jolly time. Then the speaker very feelingly
alluded to the present condition of the
country and expressed the hope that peace
will reign, but from the outlook he feared
that a crisis was upon us, and when the
'veterans marched to Charleston their sons
would be there in service ahead of them.
CaptainBradham's speech was full of pa
triotic sentiments, and several times he
brought tears from the eyes of some of his
The camp reorganized with the following

The following were elected delegates to

J. Bradham. Maj. A. J. Richbourg, Col. H.
L. Benbow, J. Elbert Davis.
The camp evidently intend taking Char
leston by storm. and every effort will be
made to get a full force to go.
A committee consisting of D. J. Brad
bam,M. Levi and S.A.Rigby was appointed
to induce their comrades to take advantage
of this magnificent opportunity.
That these "vets" do not intend to do
things hal way may be seen by the high
ompliment they paid to five of Claren
don's beautiful and accomplished daugh
ters. They selected Miss Elenora Norvelle
ERichardson of Panola their sponsor, and
for maids of honor, Misses Margarette A.
Tindal, Folders; Annie Mabel Cantey,
Summerton, and Lucie Barron and Mellie
Nelson of Manning. With this bevy of
lovely young ladies to accompany the old
soldiers, we have no doubt that Clarendon
will have a place in the picture second to
none. The leading spirits in the affair are
so in earnest that Harry Benbow Camp
should be fully represented that it was an
nounced that no comrade should stay away
on account of lacking in funds, for a com
mittee was appointed consisting of D. J.
Bradham, A. M. Brailsford, S. R. Cole, C.
S. Land and J. W. Fleming to see to it
that every comrade who would, could go.

In speaking to Mr. Barron, the business
manager of the firm, we inferred that his
cash carrier system was not the only addi
tion he has in view, and that before the
busy season sets in, it would not surprise
us to see the store brilliantly lighted with
electric lights. There is no use scoffing at
the idea, for it is a fact that where such an
enterprising disposition is exhibited, it is
appreciated by the people who have learned
to regard such men as public benefactors,
and if they have the nerve to put into their
store the modern improvements they also

TROUBLE AT THE CITADEL.
Cadets Try to Force SergL Major Can
tey, Who Recently Reported Cadets
for Breaking Barracks, to Leave
An attempt made by seventy-five cadets
to force Cadet Cantey to leave the institu
tion caused an open rebellion at the South
Carolina aIilitary Academy last night.
Chief of Police Boyle had to be called on
to protect Cantey and the officers of the in
stitution, and for nearly two hours a squad
of thirty policemen was stationed in the
quadrangle to await a general attack, which
was momentarily expected from the boys,
who were wild with excitement. The
shouts and yells from the Academy brought
a big crowd of people from the neighboring
streets and houses. Many of the cadets
were under the influence of whiskey. This
was admitted by the police und officials at
tLe Citadel. When the police marched in
the iron doors the cadets hissed -hem
loudly, and during their stay in the place
the continued talking and shouting made
the walls echo with a sound such as has
never been known in the Acaderay before.
After midnight the ringleaders appeared
to grow less boisterous. They were hoarse
from much shouting, and the presence of
the pol.ce prevented them from carrying
out their plans in regard to Cantey. Short
ly after midnight orders were given for the
police to quietly march out. This brought
on more cries from the boys. A squad was
stationed in front of the main entrance to
the building, and at headquarters Chief
Boyle and his officers remained on duty
until an early hour this morning. What
made matters bad last night was that the
cadets had access to the guns and all of
them had loaded cartridges.
Trouble leading up to the crisis last night
has been brewing since several cadets were
reported two weeks agc, for breaking ranks
to attend a dance. Srgt. Major Cantey
reported the affair and five cadets were sus
pended. At the meeting of the board of
visitors last week the boys were taken back
into the institution. A secret plan was
afterwards put on foot to get Cantey out.
Col. Coward heard yesterday that trouble
would result, and he asked Chief Boyle to
have his men in readiness for any emer
gency which might arise.
At 11 o'clock last night a committee of
twenty, representing the corps, went to
Cadet Cantev's room. Col. Coward sus
pcted something and stopped the boys.
When the boys saw that they could not
pass Col. Coward to reach Cantey they
dropped back and the rebellion followed.
Only three officers of the institution were
in the building. The men on dyty were
powerless to stop the row. It was feared
that bloodshed would be the end ofi the
general uprising and orders were sent the
police to come in. The first officer in the
gate was met with a volley of hisses. Some
of the men were expecting the cadets, in
their wild state of mind, to open fire with a
gun. This was expected. It would have
been the signal for a bloody battle in the
A reporter for the News and Courier
heard of the trouble on the street and hur
ried to the building. When he reached
the iron gateway he was halted, but the
boys finding that he was after getting the
story promptly opened the gate and
sneaked him to a reception room. The
leaders would not allow a light to be made,
but a few minutes later Prof. Parker came
in and requested the reporter to leave. As
he left fifty boys shouted for him to hear
their side of the affair.
Col. Coward was seen this morning. The
great strain had shown on him, but the re
spect borne him by the cadets had saved
Cantey. That respect, however, could not
stop the riot. Col. Coward said he regret
ted the affair and he would report it this
morning to the chairman of the board.
There can be but one end to the trouble,
the authorities say.
This morning the cadets were still gath
ered on the galleries discussing the riot
and singing songs. They were comipara
tively quiet, but the police remained on
duty outside. The crowds were ordered to
leave the green.
The five cadets who were taken back by
the board of visitors were not allowed by
the corps to participate in the movement to
The students claim that the whole trou
ble grew out of tha fact that the superin
tendent, commandant and board of visitors
countenanced Cantey's action in reporting
the cadets. This, they say, saused great
indignation in the corps. Resolutions
were drawn up some days ago and sent to
antey's father, asking nim to withdraw
his eon from the institution, but these
proved of no avail. It was after this that
the indignation among them reached such
a point that eighty of their number, repre
senting every class in the Academy, drew
p resolutions to which they affixed their
names, swearing on honor to force Cantey
o leave the institution by last night at the
latest. They met at the time appointed to
carry out their purpose. They were di
ided into squads of fifteen each, one
squad alone at first being sent to notify
Cantey of the determination reached by his
fellow students. They started for Cantey's
room as quietly as possible, but found the
uperintendent and the commandant, who
had previous knowledge of their purpose,
waiting them there.
It was then that the trouble ensued, an
count of which has been given. -News

Served 15 Years.
For fifteen years we have
served the people of this coun
tv as salesman and we doubt
much if there is any one in
this county better qualified to
know the wants of the trade
than we are, and we feel con
fident with our experience we
can go into the market and
buy a stock o)f goods as cheap
as any merchant in the State,
for we have an unbounded field
from which to make our selec
tion. We are not forced to
buy from any one house or
two houses, but bay wherever
we can get the best goods the
cheapest. The markets of the
North and the South are at
our conmand, and we make
bold this assertion that there
is no house in this town or in
this part of the State that can
name closer prices than we are
Now we do not make this
boast without any hope of
proving it, but we do court
comparison. Get your prices
from whoever you will and
come to our store and you will
see that our statements are
correct; and better still, we
carry a line of goods which
deserves the patronage of the
entire county, and we do say
with a grateful and thankful
heart that we number among
our customers some of the best
people in the county.
