THE PRELIMNARY PRIMARY.
The Vote Tabutated-The Leaders not Satis

-Did the Wrong Men Lead, or was
the Vote too Small?
The caucus, we presume that is the
rigbt name, or the reformers,as they call
themseives, which is another name for
Tillianites, was held last Saturday in
Klettner's Hall. The object was to re
ceive and tabulate the vote in the pre
liminary primary for Senator and Rep
resentatives in the Legislature. The
issuing of an address, which may be
found elsewhere, was- also part of the
The Tillmanites claim twenty-eight
clubs in the county, but only fourteen
had voted and the vote was small-very
small. Every township, however, with
the exception of No. 6, was represented.
The meeting was secret and only
those who are supposed to be in sym
patly with the plan were adtmitted, and
a resolution was adopted that nothing
should be given out for publication ex
cept the address which the secretary
furnishes. That was what The Herald
and News was told when members
were applied to for information of the
proceedings. We were told, however,
that perfect harmony prevailed, and
everything was getting in good work
ing condition. The secretary, we pre
sume, supposes that the address was
long enough to supply the deficiency as
to the other proceediugs and ouly sends
that. He, however, sent along several
blank sheets of paper which may be in
tended to cover the other work done.
The vote was small and not alto
gether satisfactory. Possibly those
who received the highest vote were not
altogether satisfactory and possibly it
is desired to get a fuller expression, and
hence, another caucus will be held.
This one we suppose will be with open
doors, as it is alsc to nominate delegates
to the State Convention, and that sug
gested convention we understood was
to be open to reporters.
No nominations were made; that is to
be doue in July at the next caucus.
The Herald and News did not attend
the caucus. We were not expected and
made no application. But the people
like to have the news, and we presume
some of those who were present will be
interested in seeing in print what was
done, and it is our mission to furnish
our readers with the news.
And as we will be devulging no secret
we w"lI give below, at least, an approx
imately correct report of the proceed
ings. We would like to give a synop
sis of the speeches made but our space
this week forbids that.
D:. Sam a Pope was elected Presi
dent, and . A. Mills, Secretary.
The vote was tabulated with the fol
lowing result. There may .have been
some other' scattering vctes cast and
some others may have. been voted for,
bnt we do not recall their names or
their vote. The total number of votes
cast for the Senate was .253, and the
House 282. For the Senate Rev. J. A.
Sligh received 224; Geo. S. Mower, 17;
S. Pope, 9; J. L. Keitt, 3.
For the House, Jno. T. Duncan re
ceived 144; WN. D. Hardy, 141; Cole. L.
1reas, 133; T. Connor, 94; W. E. Lake,
51, H. H. Folk, 48; Job L. Hughey, 43;
P. a. Koon, 38; T.'N. Kibler, 34;Jno.W.
Scott, 21; J. M. Johnstone,14; J.T.Setz
ler, 4; J. C. Wilson, 3; T. M. Neel, 2.
As we have said there may have been
others, but we do not recall them. We
suppose that Messrs. Mower, Johnstone,
Wilson, Neel and Pope received their
votes- by accident, as it were, as they
wereLnot. before the clubs at this time
and their friends did not turn out. And
then,.too, the vote may not be accurate
as the reader must know that The Her
ald and Ne ws was not present. Those
who were there can best testify as to its
correctness and it will not be found
bad wrong, is our judgment.
Rev. J. A. Sligh introduced the ad
dress which is published elsewhere and
which was adopted. Speeches were
made by Mr. Sligh, Dr. Pope, and
Mr. Theo. N. Kibler, Mr. Job Hughey
and possibly one or two others. Mr.
J. WV. Bowden, editor jof the Cotton
Plant, came up from Columbia and
made a short address to the caucus,
It would seem that the people are
getting somewhat tired of this plan of
getting men to run for office, but then
the farmers may have been too bnsy to
turn out and the next caucus may tell
a different tale. We shall see-provided
we are admitted.

The commencement in Newberry
full upon us. The week has been vie:
and sunshiny, but not too hot. Ti
churches in town were all closed on Sui

occasion. Many visitors from abroad:i
here. The town is fairly alive wit
eharming and beautiful young ladiE
and handsome and interesting beau.
The programme for-the occa.sion is a
On Sunday morning the baccalaurc
ate sermon was preached i n the oper
bouse by the Rev. E. J. Wo!fe, D. D.
of Gettysburg, Pa., to one of the larges
audiences we have ever seen assei
bled there. They began coming, in or
der to secure good seats, as early a
9 o'clock, although the service was ho
to begin before 11 o'clock. Ever:
available space was occupied and nian:
could not get seats The entire lowe

which was the sweet faces of New
berry's charming women. It was :
lovely scene viewed from the roporter'
corner. Here and there only might bi
seen a man.
The sermon was scholarly, able, ani
forcibly delivered. His text was, " Leaq
me to the rock that is higher than T.
found in Psalms 61: 2. He spoke fW
fifty-seven minutes and held the mos
interested attention of the vast audi
ence. He spoke first of the uiLversa
consciousness of a higher being, an
second of the human aspiration afte
God-this highest Being, and of a de
sirel'or communion with it. and showei
the unattainableness of this conmiu
nion by human effort alone. Thes
three propositions were elaborately at
logically argued, and at times th
speaker became truly eloquent. Ther
was nothing startling or strikin-ly ne%
in the sermon, but the "old, old story
was told in a style that was tinishe(
and ornate and at the same time stron;
and forcible. In conclusion the preach
er said the only way to reach th
heights of this rock which is our salva
tion was through the efficiency of be
lieving prayer. That, even with tha
we could not scale the heights, but th
rock could come down to us and lift i
up. And this had been accomplishei
by Christ coming upon the earth an
making communion with God possibl
through believing prayer.
On Sunday night the installation o

JUNIOR CONTEST IN ORATORY.
On Monday night the Junior Contes
in Oratory took place in the Oper
House. Long before the hour for th
exercises to begin the audience begai
to assemble, and by half-past eigh
every seat in the house had been takei
and standing room in the aisles was a
a premium. Every member of th
Junior Class is required to take part L
this contest. In the present class ther
are eleven young men.
The first speuker was Mr. Geo. 8
Bearden, of Columbia. S. C. Subject
"The first stroke, half the battle." Th
speaker showed that the success o
failure of one in life depended largel,
on how well the battle had beel
planned and how vigorously the firs
strokes were delivered. One source c
Napoleon's success was the skill witi
which his campaigns were planned
As so much depends on starting righi
the young man should neglect no or
portunity of fitting himself for th
active de' ie of life. The excellence c
the Greeks as soldiers was largely du
to the.thorough training they receive<
in the- athletie contests and games.
The next speaker was Mr. N. Dl
Bodie, of Cloud's Creek, S. C. Su4.ject
"The present financial crisis.'" Afte
discussing various theories to accoun
for the present depressed condition o
the country, the speaker reached the
conclusion that t:he present finmancia
crisis is due largely to the credit systen
inaugrated at the close of the late war
The next speaker on the programme
was Mr. E.'A. Carlisle, of Newberry
S. C. Subject: "Ebb and Flow." Ii
order to attain the -highest degree o
success possible the propitious momnen
must he seized and utilized. Napoleor
having failed to seize the propition
moment on the field of Waterloo, saw
the mighty achievements of forme
battles crumble to dust on that luck
Mr. S. L. Cash, of Newberry, th
next speaker, showed how "Fashion'
is gradually losing the hold it has had
on the world, and individuals and na
tions are casting off its shackles.
Mr. J.' L. Caughman, of Caugh
man's, gave a brief resume of the his
tory of "Our own State"from the~days
when the savage Red man roamed ir
unrestrained freedom over hill and
valley to the dark and troublesome
days of the reconstruction period, and
showed how at all times South Caro

lofty standards of the heroes of the

Harms, 'of Savannah. History- has
been nothing more than the record o
the rise, growth and decay of govern

of the times are such that it would bn
well for our'tatesmen to heed the voic<
of history and avoid the quickaands it
which so many States have suink te
rise no more.
Mr. B. L. Jones, of New berry, S. C2.

of the great dangers of the present tim

The next speaker was Mr. J. ID. Ki

"Success the reward of fidelity.".Ther<
are two kinds of success, a positive an<o
a negative. For positive success it is
necessary to labor unceasingly. New

~"abor omnia vincit." Men lik
Bishop Butler and Lyman Beecher dis

"What next?" was a ques ion an
swered by Mr. H. A. McCollough, o
Prosperity, S. C. Man's mind is full'
awake to an apprec'iat:en of its power
and captivities. Who can predict, re
viewing the past .50 years, what th
next 10 years will bring forth? Of on
thing we may besure, the closingyear
of this century will bring great change
as has been for'hadowed by the event
of the paset few years.
The last speech was Mr. R. M. Monts
Prosperity. Subject; "Beyond." It i~
possible for man to overcome the great
est obstacles which lie in his path, anc
to attain to honor and distinction anc

THE ADDRESS BEFORE THE LITERARY
was delivered last night by Rev. L. E.
t Busby, of Leesville. He spoke of the
"Educational problem in the South: a
plea for universal education." He out
lined the evils of the educational sys
tem of the past two hundrea years in
the South and the causes producing
t these evils. The result of this system
was the great proportion of ignorance
among our people. He compared the
e settlers of New England to those of
the Southern tier of States; how the
former adopted tne system of popular
. education and the latter depended on
the individual, which has resulted in
r keeping a large proportion of the
masses in ignorance.
UHe off'ered as a remedy for this state
ofaffairs the following: 1. Federal
aid in the shape of the Blair educa
tional bill, although he did not press
that point. 2. To diversify as well as
intensify our industries and vocations.
3. To cheapen the meanis of obtaining
an.education. The ::bannels of extrava
fgance must be filled op. 4. Inaugurate
ea thorough system of apprenticeship in
all occupations. 5. Additional taxa

The Commencement at rrosperity Hiah
[Correspondence Herald and News.]
PROSPERITi, June 13.-The exercises
of Prosperity High School closed oii
Thursday night. On Friday evening;
the stockholders met-transacted their
business-adjourned, call a meeting of
the truztees, who in like manner trans
acted their business without ajar, and
unanimously elected the former tea
chers, Prof. E. 0. Counts and Miss
Bessie Wheeler. Quick work, that,
and something hitlierto unknown iii
the history of this school, and which is
another incontrov'erable evidence of
the entire satisfact on these teachers
have given their patrons.
On Wednesday night the annual
addre-s was delivered by C. W. Welch,
of Houston, Texas, before a large and
appreciative audience. The speaker is
a graduate of Newb.rrv College, and is
the father of Prosperity High School.
He began by naturally recurring tothe
pleasant nie-vories and scenes which
occurred during the progress of build
ing and placing of the school on a high
plane of morality and culture. The
speaker, in his imipressive style, then
launched forth in his subject, urging
with much er:rhasis the great import
ance of connecting an industrial branch
of the school for the development of
the student's physical nature as well as
that of his mental qualifications. He
argued with muci force that. for a
man or woman to reach the highest
pinnacle of useful ness, it was essentially
necessar. that the physique be dev
loped, and the hand and eye accurately
and studiously trained. He laid dowi
many apt propositions and truisms in
support of his thecries. One only will
be mentioned here. If an highly edu
cated mind in a feeble body is capable
of great things, how much greater
things could tbat man accomplish if
thatgreat mind had its abode in a
healthy well trained and developed
Prof. Welch has accepted the position
to fill the chair of Physics in Clemson
College, and will therefore become a
citizen of South Carolina again, i. e. if
the College ever opens.
On Thursday night the closing exer
cises,and exhibition,were of an exceed
ingly high.order. Every available space
in the building was occupied, and a
great many gentlenen had to be satis
fied with standirg room outside near
the windows. The music was sweet
The exercises consisted of declama
tions, dialogues and songs and music.
The students all acquitted themselves
with much credil and excited the adnii
ration of the packed audience, who on
their part presErved good order and
gave strict attention throughout, not
withstanding tLe sweltering heat. It
would be an act of injustiae, were spe
cial mention nct made of Miss May
Dominick in her recitation of "Class
History," Miss Itosa Wyse in "Madame
Goodrich," Miss Gertrude Simpson as
"Yankee Aunt," Miss Lula Moseley as
"Queen of the Fairies" and Miss Anna
Traywick in her "Propbetic Visions of
the Future." While all were good, the
parts acted atd performed by these
young ladies were grand, yes, bordering
on the sublime. The "Three Little
Todies" was splendidly rendered by
three very small girls. The "Ball
Song." "Waiter Song" and "Building
Song" by the infant class brought
down the house. From the beginning
to the close of the exercises, there was
not a single ba:k or error made. This
is something remarkable in sohool of
ninety-seven scholars, and shows that
great care and much pains had been
bestowed on the classes by the teachers.
In fact too much credit can not be given
Miss Bessie Wheeler, the efficient assis;
tant teacher, for her untiring zeal in
the thorough preparation of the classes
for the public exhibition. Her prepara
tions were all marked by precision and
thoroughness of a high and commenda
Trhe scholastic year has closed and

Miss Bessie Wheeler, have made on
their children. The teachers-because
thcy rest frort their labors. The peopie
at large- congratulate themselves upon
attending one of the best, if not the
best-closing exercises of Prosperity
It would reqluire too much time and
space to mention the names of the
visitors here lrst week during the closing
exercises of the High School. Suflice
it to say that all were hospitably en
tertained, and returned to their honies
happy and serene.

Miss Essie Wyse has returned home
from Hagerstow n Female College.
This was her first year there.
Miss Mary Traywick, daughter of
Rev. .B. Traywid.~, has been unani
mously elected, by the Board of Trus
~tees of Columabia Female College, to the
position of Assistant Teacher of mathe
matics and English. This was a genuine
surprise to Miss Traywick, she having
made no application for a place, and is
a deserved ciompliment to her ability
and usefulness. She occupied the se
fondeplace i a Prosperity High School
for one-yedr, at end of' which she was
re-elected for a second term, but her
health at that time, was such as to
force her to decline an acceptance. We
regret that Miss Mary Is going from
s'mong.us, but are truly glad that she
is oig to occupy a position of honor,
of dgity -and of usefulness. We are
confient that she will in her new
sphere do credit, not only to herself,
but to those who have conferred the
honor upon her, and to the institution
to which she is going. She is a grad u
ate of Columbia Female College. and
-we know the loves her Alma Mater.
She posses a true Christian character.
She is gentle, kind, meek and lovely,
all of which go to make up true great
ness in woman. We will miss you
Miss Mary, but you have our richest
binedictions to carry with you.
