MIN HONOR OF JEFFERSON DAVIS. 1n
The Stores Draped in Mourning-The Sur- 1)
iivors Meeting-The Opera House Meet- t
ing Largely Attended -Resolution9 f
and Speeches-Business Suspended.
Newberry does honor to the memory
of Jefferson Davis. On yesterday morn
ing all the stores and otfices were
draped in appropriate mourning, and
the memorial services in the Opera tl
House were largely attended by tue c
citizens of Newberry-.
The co'hege suspended exercises from
eleven o'"iock and likewise the Female
Aeademy and 'Miss McI ntosh's school.
The students were marched to the ti
The survivors held a meeting on
M onday. Capt. R. H. Wright was
niade Chairman and Dr. James Mcln- l
tosh, Secretary. A coniittee to ar
range for the public meeting was ap- t
pointed, consisting of I. H. Wri 'ht. J.
B. Fellers, J. W. Gary, J. N. Martin
and V. T. Torrant. A comntittee on
resolutions was also appointed, consist
in of J. B. Fellers, R. L. MeCaughrin
and M. A. Carlisle.
The following ladies were asked to
devise and arrange suitable drapery for
the public meeting: Mrs. F. N. Bax
ter. MIrs. N. B. 31azyck, Mrs- 0. 31clR.
Holmes, Mrs. Y. J. Pope, Mrs. J. A. t
Burton and Mrs. 0. L. Schumpert.
At half past eleven o'clock the fire
bell began to toll, but long before that t<
people had begun to assemble at the
Opera House and by the time for the
npening of the exercises the house was ti
filled down stairs and galleries.
Mr. Davis being a consistent mem- e
ber of the Episcopal Church, the memn- e
bers here had the bell tolled at the (
same time the fire bell was tolled. Ow- t;
ing to the fact of his being a member d
of this church it would have been ap
propriate to have used some part of
the Episcopal service in the exercises,
but on this occasion sectarian differ
ences were forgotten and all did honor
alike to the great man dead.
The opera house was tastefully draped
in mourning. Upon the stage were
seated the ministers,speakers and mem
bers of the committee. On either side
were arms stacked bearing garlands of
mourning and swords that had been in
the heat of battle. On one side was a
canteen that called to the minds of old o
veterans the scenes of other days. On
the center of the stage was a mound
covered with the emblems of mourn
ing. Above it hung a beautiful crown.
There was also there the flag of the t
Quitman Rifles and for the occasion
the old flag of the 3rd Regiment was
unfolded and in its soiled and tattered
and bullet pierced appearance called to
mind the days !that tried men's souls.
We noticed the tear drops steal down ,
the cheek of many old vetarans on this
occasion as their eyes looked upon
these tokens of scenes and conflicts
more than a quarter of a century ago,
and as the speakers portrayed these
scenes in words, men who had faced
the cannon's mouth and marched half
clad and fed right into the jaws of the
death dealing weapons of war, could
not restrain the tear as memory was

The choir for the occasion sang well.
The opening anthem was "Guide Me 1
0 Thou Great Jehovah." This was fol
lowed by that grand old hymn, "Rock
of Ages," and "Nearer my God to
Thee."7 Tbe closing piece, ''Asleep in
Jesus," was sweetly sung, and closed

organized. On motion of Capt. R. H
Wright, Dr. James McIntosh was
elected chairman and M1r. C. F. Boyd
The exercises were then opened with
prayer by Rev. G. WV. Holland. Dr.
McIntosh in introducing the first speak
er made a short and appropiate address.
He said the Southern heart was stirred
to its deepest depths. The tolling of I
bells and the booming of cannon from
the Potomac to the Rio Grande would
call the people from town and hamlet
in all this Southland to-day to do honor
to the illustrious dead. His memory
and his honor will be as immortal as
history itself. His memory and his
life forms a part of the life of every
Confederate. Flags that have been fold
ed and laid away for a quarter of a cen
tury, on a day like this, it is proper
they should be unfurled and that we
should look on them once more, when
the chieftain over whom they once
proudly waved lies still in death.
Bathed in the blood of its defenders a
fit emblem to rest on the grave of the
dead. Our victories and our defeats in I
the greatest struggle the world ever
saw are iuseparbly connected with the
name of him in whose honor we are
assembled to-day. It is right that we
together with the other parts of this
sorrowinlg Southland should engage in
these services to-day.
Mr. J. F. J. Caldwell wvas then in
troduced. Mr. Caldweil said that the
event which brought us together to-day
had probably caused more sadness and1
sorrow in this beautiful Southland
than any occurrence (luring the last
quarter ~of a century. Even the death
of Robert E. Lee loved as he was, fail-t
ed to evoke such expressionls of affection
and love as is contained in the vast
wave of sympathy which rolls over
this Southland to-day. And it should
be so. He felt safe in saying that .Jef
ferson Davis was the greatest of all the
heroes of the South and deserved the
most reverence and affection. Lee
and Jackson and the other heroes most
efficiently did their part. But it was
left for Jefferson Davis to suffer long
after the cares and troubles of the
others were ended. He was the pecul
iar mark at which the hatred and envy
of partisanship and prejudice were.
launched. The most envenonmed
shafts were hurled at him and through
him at us, by the enemies of the South,
and every blow struck at him was felt
hv us. But all these could not terrify
hm. He wvas the martyr, represent
ing the South. His(Christian resigna
tion elevated Southern character. Thle
whole South should join in exhibiting
grief at his death as for no other man.
r. Caldwell thought that M1r. Glad
stone was the only other man of his
time that was worthy to be compared
with him. He then spoke of Mr. Davis
as a statesman and soldier. He thou:ght
that his management of the War De

The next speaker was Rev. E. P.
MClintok. He spoke of his recollec

day will come when history will recog
nize Lee and Davis as the counterpart
of Washington and Jefferson. The
character of MIr. Davis was one of suf
fering. His soul wvas one of scrrow. It
was a beneficent arrangement of God
that his life should be continued fori so
long a time for our mnstrucetiom:. The
feature of suffering will distinguish
our generation. He wa the great ex

Our little town being a part of the world

is also being wrought. Messrs. Luther
> Langford & Co., have their entire stock of
goods advertised at cost preparatory to a
1- change of business. Mr. D. M. Langford
will withdraw as soon a9 the stock is
t sufficiently reduced. These cost sales by
some merchants, throw the other mer
ie chants on the defensive in order to protect
their own trade, and the result is that
goods are being sold at remarkably low

Y not advertise at cost are selling certain
lines of staple goods far below cost. This
