The retiring president, Jos. L. Keitt,
n delivering his annual message, stated
hat the financial condition of the
>rder in this county was good, that the
igent of the Alliance at Newberry had
)een paid his salary and that the rent
>f the warehouse had be"n paid and
,hat there was still a balance in the
reasury, and that the order in this
ounty was in good working condition.
[his much of the message is given out
>y the secretary. The following resolu
ion was adopted unanimously:
SUB-TR EASURY ENDORSED.
"Resolved, That we endorse to the
ull all the demands adopted by the
upreme council at Ocala last Decem
er, and especially the sub-treasury
cheme, and instruct our delegate to
he State Alliance to vote accordingly."
The following resolution was also
"Resolved, .That Ne Aberry County
Uliance act in unison with the rest of

he other cotton States-in maintain
ng an agent at 1 e w York to keep us
osted as to the uotton market."
This is all the information that the
ecretary would furnish for publication.
everal other resolutions were offered,
.ud one matter especially that caused
onsiderable debate, and in fact the
>ly thing that caused any debate,
ame up, but the secretary would give
ut nothing concerning it.
President Keitt, in closing his an
ual message, held in his hand a copy
f The Herald and News in which some
esolutions were published two weeks
go and read them to the Alliance, and
aid that the Alliance should take cog
izance of them and recommended
hat the county Alliance pass a resolu
ion, asking the Liber'y all Sub-Alli
nce to rescind the resoiutions, inas
uuch as they were in opposition to the
ights of the majority rule.
THE LIBERTY HALL RESOLUTIONS.
"Whereas, the Farmers' Alliance is
.non-political organization; and where
, there is a disposition on the part of
ome of our leading Alliancemen to in
roduce political measures into the Al
jance that will bring about discord

nces to create opposition to Governor

"Resolved, That we pledge our un
ivided support to the Democratic
arty of South Carolina.
"2. That we will oppose any effort

"3. That we heartily endorse the
ews expressed by Governor B. R.
illman on the sub-treasury bill so far
s its merits have yet been discussed.
"JOHN WV. SCOTT, President.
"JAS. S. McCARLEY, Secretary."
A SPIRITED DISCUSSION.
During the progress of the meeting a
esolution was offered in accordance
rith the recommendation of the presi
ent. This brought forth the discus
ion. Mes.qrs. Jno. W. Scott and J. S.
IcCarley, of the Liberty Hall Alliance,
efended the action of their Alliance,
nd for a time the discussion was
pirited and lively.
Mr. John T. Duncan, also a member
f the Liberty Hall Alliance, was in
vor of the rescinding resolution. He
aid he was not present at the meeting
f his Alliance when they ado pted the
esolutions, and if he had been he
ould have opposed them. He said
e trouble with the members of his
lliance, who adopted those resolu
ions, was that they were not informed
nd needed to be enlightened, needed
Lecturer Talbert spoke on the same
ne, and to some extent ridiculed the
tion of the Liberty Hall Alliance,
nd said that the members of the Lib
rty Hall Alliance needed information,
d that nobody was opposed to the
ib-treasury except bankers and poli
The flings at their intelligence aroused
[essrs. Scott and McCarley, and they
~torted rather sharply and pointedly.
Mr. Scott told Mr. Duncan that the
iberty Hall Alliance had dragged and
ngered almost unto death under his
residency, with all his learning and
terature and Alliance information,
ntil it became necessary to remove
im from the presidency, and that un
er the new administration it was
ourising and in a healthy condition.
But the resolution was adopted, and
2e Liberty Hall Alliance was asked to
sind the resolution ini question, by a
ote of the County Alliance as opposed
the demands of the Supreme Coun
1 at Ocala, and being in contraven
on of the right of the majority to rule.
It will go out that the sub-treasury
Ian was unanimously adopted by the
lewberry County Alliance, and so it
-as, ostensibly, for none of those who
id not favor it voted against it. But
u2ere were quite a number who were
ot in favor of theescheme, as one could
asily learn by talking with the dele
ates on the streets after the adjourn
aent of the Alliance.
It is hardly probable that the Liber
SHall Alliance will rescind the reso
itions as requested by the County Al
ance. What wiu be the effect of the
isubordination of the Lrberty Hall
liance, in case the resolutions are not
scinded, The Herald and News is
nable to say.
Altogether the meeting was a very
leasant and harmonious one. In this
unty tl'ere is considerable difference

b-treasury scheme as now proposed.

Sir: I notice from the papers that you are
to address the people of Prosperity July 29th
on the sub-treasury plan of the Farmers' Al
liance. It is presumed that the purpose of
all concerned Is to develope the truth and
get all the light possible. I ou a.re on record,
1 believe, in opposition to the rmeasure, and
it would therefore seem desire ble that ar
rangements be made for a joint discussion in
which both sides shall be represented by de

which claim my attention at that time, ,ut

- Delight as a Health Resort-Fine Climate
-One Thonsrnd Feet Above the Sea
It is peculiar to human natnre that
we rarely appreciate the good things
we have at our own doors until we
have them not. We are rarely aware
of the advantages we enjoy until they
are taken from us. Possibly in some
respects it is a wise provision that the
human mind is never satisfied. The
man who constantly views the gran
deur of the ocean sees nothing grand
in it. He who lives among the moun
tains does not always appreciate thier
picturesqueness nor the sublimity of
tha scenery that surrounds him.
When we assert that within fifteen
miles of Newberry less than an hour's
ride, nature has provided a place that
for locality of view, sublimity of
scenery, picturesqueness, clear and
crystal springs of sparkling water, de
lightful climate, and healthfulness
that will rival many of the now famous
watering places. Some of our readers
will no doubt question the statement,
and no doubt many of those who have
lived in full view and under the
shadow of the place will be amazed
at the statement. Yet such is the fact,
and it being so will demonstrate the
appropriateness of this introduction.
We do not always appreciate the ad
vantages and blessings we enjoy.

Ruff's Mountain, on the line of New

can be made one of the most delight
ful summer resorts in this country, and
that is proposed to make out it. For
many years it has stood there, Na
ture's own handiwork, ready to be
utilized for summer residences, but
man has neglected it and sought pleas
ant summer sojourns at other points.
But railroads are great developers,
and the completion of the Columbia,
Newberry and Laurens Railroad along
the side and at the foot of this moun
tain has attracted man's attention and
this mountain is now to be utilized as
a summer resort.
About four years ago the Piedmont
Land Improvement and Investment
Company, realizing the value of this
mountain as a summer resort, bought
from Mr. F. H. Dominick about four
hundred acres of land including the

This company is composed of live
and successful business men, and what
they put their hands to will move on
to success. The directors of the company
are: H. C. Moseley, of Prosperity, M. A.

Attorney and Secretary.
The executive committee, in whose
hands has been placed the manage

Mountain are: H. C. Moseley, John T.
Sloan, Jr., and M. A. Carlisle.
Under the direction of the active and
enterprising president, Mr. H. C.
Moseley, who.is also treasurer, and to
whose business tact the committee has
left in large manner the whole manage
ment, on top of the mountain has been
laid off some thirty-fo'ir half-acre lots
suitable for residence pir.me.
There are really three moutains in
the range, and they are designated as
East, Middle and West Mountains.
On East Mountain there are eighteen
desirable half acre lots, on Middle
Mountain ten and on West Mountain
six. A nice plat of these lots and of
the whole Mountain has recently been
made by Mr. Hasel Thomas. Between
East and Middle Mountains there is a
good road or street leading up to the
mountain from the railroad station,
right of way over the land of Mr. G.
M. Boland being given.
This company contemplates building
a large and comfortable hotel on the
top of the middle mountain. The
view from this would be charming.
The mountain is one thousand feet
above the sea-level and from the sum

around. The altitude of the mountain
is about on a level with Spartanburg
