THE FIREMEN'S TOLURNAMENT.
A Pleasant Day-Good R:unning by the
Boys-Laurens Wins-Governor Shep
pard's Address-The Visiting Fire
One of the most disagreeable things
to us in connection with the newspaper
work is to have to wait until a piece of
news is a week old before we can pub
lish it. In this busy and fast age we
always feel that after the lapse of so
much time much of the interest in the
occasion is gone. To this reporter it is,
and he fears after the excitement and
inspiration of the hour are past, he will
be unable to chronicle properly the
tournament and picnic of the firemen
held here on last Thursday. The fire
men are very important factors in the
make up of any town.. The people of
Newberry feel a deep iuterest in their
firemen-the Excelsiors-and conse
quently were deeply interested in the
entertainment of the visiting firemen
from Anderson and Laurens on last
Thursday, and in the success of the
tournament. They showed their inter
est by their presence, and in many
other and more substantial ways. Our
fire department was organized in 18S3,
and we have now one of the best volun
tary departments in the State. Last
Thursday was the first tournament we
have ever held here, and every one
wanted to see it. The officers of the
Excelsiors, Messrs. W. H. Hunt, 'Jr.,
Jno. M. Kinard, and M. Foot, Jr., used 1
every effort to make the occasion a
pleasant and successful one. Their
efforts were ably seconded by the mem
bers of the company.
The day iais a very pleasant one in
deed, and the occasion a decided suc
cess. Fourteen picked men came down
from the Pioneer Fire Engine Com
pany, of Anderson, and were met by 1
the Excelsiors on Wednesday. Mr. R. 1
M. Baker was Captain of the running
Ex-Governor Sheppard arrived later
on the train from Columbia, and was
met by both companies and the New
berry Cornet Band.
Fourteen men from the Hectors of 1
Laurens came in Thursday morning in
charge of Mr. Frank Evans, Captain of
the running team.
The Excelsiors, of Newberry, entered I
a team of fourteen in charge of Captain
Ed Riser, and these made up the con
Mr. Geo. S. Mower acted as starting
judge, and the following, with the
presidents of each of the companies,
acted as judges: S. J. McCaughrin and
S. B. Jones, Newberry; T. S. Crayton
and G. S. Brown, Anderson; C. C.
Featherstone and - P. B. Connor,
Laurens. The judges stand was in t
front of Smith & Wearn's, and the run
down Adam's Street, from in front of
Mr. W. A. Kinard's, a distance of one
The races began a little after 9
o'clock. In the reel contest the first
prize-was won by Laurens and the
second by Newberry. Time-Laurens,
23.25 seconds; Anderson, 27.42 seconds;
Newberry, 24.34 seconds. The first
prize in this contest was $50, and the
In the grab race the first prize was
won by Newberry in 2.5 seconds.
Laurens and Anderson both being'
"blown off" making "no time," these
teams ran a second time for the second
prize, which was taken by Laurens.
The first prize in this race was $25, and
the second $15.
In the foot race, one man from each
team entered. The first prize of S10
was taken by Harry T. White, of New
berry, in ten seconds, and the second
prize of $.5 was given to W. D. Milford,
There was also a race between the
two squads of the boy company of
the Newberry team, now called the
"Sheppard Guard" in honor. of Ex
Governor Sheppard. The first prize of
$3 was given to George Jones' team,
and the second of $2 was awarded to
George Kinard's team.
Tihei"Fan Tails," from the Excelsiors,
also made the run in 3.5 seconds,
which was a very good run, con
sidering the wet weather was not suit
able to their female at tire.
The much needed rain came just be
fore the races were over and in conse
quence the picnic was not held in the
grove, and the address of Ex-Governor
Sheppard was miade in the Opera
A large number of persons were pres
ent from the county and the Opera
House was soon filled.
Mr. Sheppard was in troduced by Mr.
Geo. S. Mower, Chief of the Fire De
partment, and for thirty-five minutes
held the strict attention of his hearers.
He is an eloqiuent and pleasant speaker
and has many admirers in New berrv.
"After referring to the many attach
ments he felt towards Newberry and to.
his especial desire to be present on this
occasion to renew the friendshin of the
past, Gov. Sheppard addressed'himself
to the discussion of his theme, the main
thought of which was the material up
building and industrial growth of our
Southland in contrast with the past
undeveloped condition of our section.
It behooves us as a people occasionally
to estimate the extent of our prosperity
and, after the manner of a merchant,
take as it were an in ventory of our re
sources, and strike a balance sheet.
Whbile it is true beyond doubt that there
was a South of slavery and secession,
there is to-day a South that is growing
and developing even beyond the ardent
expectation of the most enthusiastic,
and yet there were connecting links be
tween the old and the new that show
us there can be no forgetfulness. The
glory of the past is merged in the gran
deur of the present. Governor Shep
pard dwelt at length upon the develop
ment of the new South and the neces
sity of home investment of home capi
tal for greater achievements in material
and industrial progress. Close upon
this admonition he pressed the preg
nant question "what are we doing to
wards justifying our claim to progress."
He showed the record was inexhausti
ble iR p roof of development. His sta
tistical facts were that in 1860 we had
only 1,230 manufacturing enterprises;
in 1S70, ten years after, during which a
fearful fratricidal war had ensued, in
stead of 1,230 we had 1,584 manufactur
ing enterprises, with an anural product
amnounting toS,615,000. A decadel!ater,
in 1880), notwithstanding the hand of
the despoiler was upon us. our mills,
etc., increased in number to 2,078, with
an annual output of $161,7;38,000. F,romn
1880) to 1887 there was an increase to
3,270 factories. etc., with an annual pro.
duct of $31 ,975,000. In 1800 there were
no fertilizer factories: now there are 13,
working 885 hands, with an annual
yield of $3,396,000. In 1860 there were
nocotton seed oil mills; in 1888 there
were 54, with an aggregate capital of
$810,000. In 1860 we had but 17 cotton
mmll in South arouna, workin 891
hands, with an annual yield amount
ing to $712,000; in .1889 there are 51
mills, working a capital of $7,664,400.
The speaker wasimpressed that the
most important duty that confronts us
is the revolutionizing and reforming of
our educational method soas to keep in
line with our material advancement.
lIe maintained that we needed more
echnical institutions and imore skilled
aborers in South Carolina. That we
need industrial schools so as to turn out
useful men of practical characters, and
ie was sure that all such would be pro
vided for by the people. The institu
iolns would graduate and send forth
practical men, so that when we needed
killed labor we would have it in the
?erson of our own youths instead of
)eing compelled to send abroad for such
abor. Thus our capital would be used
n rehabilitating our own Common
.ealth. His speech abounded with
-are common sense, and fell apprecia
ingly upon the ears of eager listeners."
The prizes were awarded in a happy
peech by Gen. Y. J. Pope to the victors
n the contest. When the prize was
twarded to the Laurens team, Miss
sophia Samuels, a little girl of ten,
valked forward, and with a graceful
>ow, presented the Laureus winners a
)room nicely wrapped in ribbon, as em
>lematic of their having swept the
Just after the delivery of the prizes
Ex-Governor Sheppard gave a short
alk to the boys of the "Sheppard
iuards," in recognition of the com
liment paid him in giving their
quad his name.
The picnic dinner was served in the
>uilding lately occupied by Minter &
Famiescn, and there was plenty for all.
The visiting firemen expressed them
elves as highly pleased with their visit
The only thing to mar the festivities
)f the day was the unfortunate illness
