IS THERE AnY HOPE?
The editor of The Newberry
Herald and News does make a
first class private Secretary to
Governor McSweeney, but as a
political teacher and prophet, he
is "nix comer ous, fer stas do."
It is indeed amusing to see some
editors try to jump on what they
think is a popular side, but if
they don't mind, instead of land
ing on a rock, their feet will
strike a banana. peel, their
vision will be filled with stars,
and their basic principals will
The Herald and News, usually
a very conservative and sensible
newspaper, has joined the popu
lar clamor to damn those who
advance a thought without hav

sorship of a leader: but :>ur
friend, the editor of this hereto
fore sensible newspaper, is living
in Columbia, breathing the same
air with the editor of The State,
and possibly drinking the same.

genial souls are posing as boun
cers for the Democratic party,
with self authorized power to
give the . "get-thee-hence." to
any man who dares to think for
himself,or differ from them. The
people sIre not to be considered
in the least; if our sweet temper

les concludes that a man must
get out of the party, his newly
acquired Sancho Col. E. H. Aull,
concurs in"me-too" response with
a voice full of screech-owl melo
dy. These two editors have be
come inoeulated with each others
wisdom, anal it is but natural that
they should speak the same
thoughts. But no, there may be
some method in our friend Aull's
doing the same shadow-dance
stunt with his bosom friend Nar

the Senate, and he hails from
Aull's congressional baliwick and
if we mistake not, Aull has ever

But Gonzales manufacturing
hot tamales in dolumbia, and
Aull trying to swap them off for
"Weine wurst" in the.- Dutch

profitless to the thrifty Latimer.
Aull will realize that Mexican cop

more dividends to Latimier

of two editors who under

It is indeed painful, and as we
write our eyes are burning with
tears. to see and realize that our
friend Aull has been enticed
astray by that cunning Gonzales
of the Columba State. it is mo
tifying to have our hopes so
ignominously crushed by those
we love. But we had fears of
this, and for that reason we
begged and pleaded, exhorted
and prayed with the Newberry
lad, not to fall into bad company
when he reached the metropolis.
However, notwithstanding our
warnings, beseechings, entreat
ies and prayers, the glittering
enticements of city life were too
tempting for our unsophisticated
country friend, he has been
lured away from the paths of
rectitude in which we so careful
ly placed him with our blessing.
It is our only consolation that as
long as there is life there is hope,
and we will therefore keep on
snufiing our candle that our light
may hold out to burn to guide
his return. We are told "while
the lamp holds out to burn the
vilest sinner may return." We
can not without a desperate
bleeds when we think that poor
Aull pious in his inclinations and
rearing, should leave a happy
country home where more cranks
have been smitten by political
frost than any spot on earth, to
go to a city, "the head centre of
devilment," where sin is as thick
as leaves on the trees, and fall
into the hands of bunco-steerers,
and although they have enticed
him, through the wicked machi
nations of that impious Gonza

The reportorial staff of the
Columbia State did magnificient
work last week in covering the
reunion. Each issue of The
State from the beginning to the
end of festivities is well worth
preserving, and we venture to
say that better work could not
have been done in any city in the
Union. The mass of matter so
minute in detail, interestingly
written and attractively prepared
is indeed worthy of the most sin
cere praize. .
The great State reunion of
Confederate veterans' for 1901
has been looked forward to, with
high anticipations for many
months. and as the time drew
near the more anxious were the
old survivors to visit the capitol
city and participate in the pleas
ures offered them. They went,
had a royal time, shook hands
with comrades they had not seen
since the surrender, talked over
the past, spun yarns, hurrahed
for Hampton. Gordon and But
ler, marched in the grand parade
and for the time being they were
lords of all they surveyed. They
came back home and every one
of them is singing the praizes of
the people of Columbia for the
warm reception, the tender care
and the royal entertainment giv
en to the V'old vet's." Columbia
from all accounts must have
formed herself into a committee
of the whole and left nothing un
done to make the stay of the old
soldiers happy. We congratu
late the city upon its magnifi
We are glad to see that the
disposition of intolerance re
cently manifested by a great
many people towards those who
expressed- views different from
political idols is beginning to
disappear, and in its stead, there
is beginning to be seen a dis
position to think and investigate.
The maledictions that have re
cently been hurled at Senator
McLaurin for advocating certain
policies has had the effect to
cause many people to r-ead and
exaiine for themselves ~the
questions in issue, with the re
sult that those whohlav~e breadth
of mind enough to put aside their
prejudice are anxious to hear the
questions discussed in a manner
befitting men aspiring to high
psitions. Senator McLaurin is
to deliver a speech.on the 22nd,
inst., in the city of Greenville
and the entire Democracy of this
State will read that speech with
great care. If he shows that he
has not renounced his fealty to
Democratic principles, but that
his position is Democratic, there
will be a great change of senti
ment throughout the State. Of
course no Democrat would fol
low McLaurin or a'nybody else
out of the Democratic party, and
those who admire the indenen
dent attitude that has been char
acteristic of the Senator's politi
cal career are much encou'raged
by the apparent desire to have
the questions and policies that
have been so severely criticized
explained to the people.

McDonald Farman Picnicks Near Jordan.
One of the sweetest little villages in
South Carolina is Jordan. down in the
lower nart of Clarendon. Your cor
respondlent speaks from personal obser-:
vation, for we were there last week.
Just at this season of the year, when
nature is clothing everything in bright
spring attire, Jordan insensibly re
minds one of a sweet, lively school girl
just entering her teens.
The village is roomy and nicely
shaded. One of its most prominent
features is the academy, which is a
very large building and would do great
credit to a considerable town. The
school is a large one. with Fr. E. H.
Hall of Fairfield as principal and Miss
Beulah Buress of Jordan as assistant.
The late J. M. Sprott, who wr a
member of the constitutional conven
tion. lived near Jordan.
Not only is the village svweet .one.
and not only are the young ladies of
this section sweet lookin, but the peo
ple are very intelligent, indeed it is 0ne
of the most intelligent commIullie-. we
have struck in our travels ove-r tl
State. Thursday night we had the
pleasure of attending a meeting of the
Epworth league. and part of the prc
ceedings were .ssays and remarks from
both sexes on distinguished Americans.
These essays displayed a spirit of re
search most commendable, and we sin
cerely wish other villages would pat
tern after Jordan in making investiga
tions into American history.
In company with the Jordan people,
your correspondent attended a picnie
Friday which was held several miles
off at the home of Col. S. Warren Nel
son-a place that is admirably adapted
to such an occasion, and is situated
near the yellow water of "broad San
The Nelson place is of itself more
than ordinary interesting. The land
was granted in 1728 to three Nelson
brother's-cousins of the colonel's
grandfather. The residerc. was built
in 1723 and burat in 189S. Another
handsome residence is now being erect
ed. The surrounding country breathes
of Revolutionary memories. Nelson's
ferry, so famous in the historic strug
gle, is about five miles off, and the Nel
son place is about three miles from two
crossings. both of which bear the name
of Cornwallis crossing-one is situated
on Wyboo and the other on Taw Caw.
It may also be mentioned that both
those old Revolutionary warriors, Sum
ter and Hampton, were married five or
six miles from this place..
Your correspondent talked a good
de.-l with Colonel Nelson, whose man
ners and bearing unconsciously reminds
one of the courtly "old school" gentle
man He is full of interesting remin
iscences and not only does he spring
from Revolutionary'stock, but was the
first man from Clarendon county to en
ter the Confederate service. He was
on General Bonham's staff and was ad
jutant of Nelson's battalion from its
formation until its close. It may also
be mentioned that Colonel Nelson is
one of the few men now living who
served in the legislature during ante
bellum days, having been first elected
to that body in 1852, nearly half a cen
Of the picnic itself we must say a few
words. It was a very sociable occasion
and was _e from that stiffness so often
characteristic of picnics. The crowd
spent the day partly in visiting the
river and walking over the pretty and
spacious grounds of the Nelson .home.
Before breaking up.some of the ladies
sang a good deal and commenced with
that popular air, -'A sweet bunch of
daisies." The singing sounded sweet as
it floated on the spring breezes and it
added interest to that delightful picnic
held near the banks of old Santee, a
river made famous in Revolutionary
annals by the exploits of " Marion's
Men'' and whose name has been made
classic by Bryant's matchless poem.
