WDILSh, JULy 5,1893.
The Herald and News is truly thank
1 that the primary election in this
county last Thursday was so quiet and
that everything passed off in such a
good natured way.
There was no reason why it should
have been otherwise, but sometimes
people get their passions and prejudices
The two gentlemen who were the
only candidates were good friends be
fore and during the canvass and the
election and are such still.
There are no sores left and the people
all accept the result and are satisfied.
There is no use to try to find the
causes. Sufficient in this matter to
deal with results.
Mr. Mower, the nominee, is a young
man, well equipped fer the difties that
wll'devolve upon him, and we feel as
sured he will meet the responsibilities
and duties of the position with a con
aientious fidelity that will redound to
the credit of those whom he shall rep
resent and be an honor to himself. He
will in. fact be a representative of all
the people and in the discharge of his
duties will know no faction. But to
say this to those-who know him is use

The Herald and News desires to say
to its esteemed contemporary at Pros

and so did the voters of Newberry

f6ction and gratification to know that
one's kindly words of advice are
The esteemed Register, speaking of
the elections in other counties, says,
as advice to its friends: "No Newberry
tactics, all due deference to the judg
ment and wisdom of the Newberry
leaders being given, for those tactics
will not bring success."
Now, come, what's the matter with
Newberry? We were as quiet and
i docile as lambs. Never a once did we

teemed eotemporsry at Prosperity that
gave advice freely and sounded the
rallying cry. And we don't want you

S maing any insinuations on Newberry.
There will be no taint of ring meth

This is truly refreshing information
ad we make a note of it so that we
may remember it when the time for

A SHOET OUTING.
The ZEior Takes a Bun to Richmond, Va.
-Some Notes by the Way.
Having been half in bed and half out
for near two months, on Friday, 21st
of June, I felt that a briefouting might
be beneficial. I left via the Coast Line
for Richmond, Vs., my object being to
combine business with pleasure. This
is a quick, pleaant, and comfortable
route North. You leave Newberry at
2.45 p. m. and next morning at 3 a. m
you se in Richmond.
The trip was uneventful. I had
been to Richmond before and was anx
ious to be there at the interment cere
* monies of President Davis, but wa%
prevented by sickness. I soon- met
several Newerry people and felt very
much at home. The Rle,r. Mr. Fair
and family are living there and then
my friends Mr. and Mrs. L. W. C.
Blalock are now residents of Rich
mond. My young friend Rev. Jno. C.
Seegers is pastor of the first English
Lutheran church. All these former
Newberrians and South Carolians are
doing well in their new homes.
Richmond and vicinity are full of
historic interest. Around about there
were the scenes of some of the hardest
fought battles of the war. Then it was
the capitol of the Confederacy and now
it is the last resting place of the first,
last, and only president of a nation
whose cause was just, but whose ex
istence was short lived.
In company with Mr. L. WV. C. Bla
lock, Mr. Adger Fair, Mrs. Blalock
and MissDodie FairlI went out to
Seven Pines, the seat of one of the
bloodiest battles of the late war.
In walking over this battlefield it
occurred to me if I had there with me
Captain Drayt. Smith, Sheriff Riser, or
Treasurer Boyd, or some other veteran
who had been to the front in battle, I
could have learned something of the
position of ibe different armies and so
forth. The embankments tbrown up
for breast works are plainly visible,
but there is a full growth of pines and
except the breast works and the graves
in the national cemetery there are no
evidences of the bloody battlefield. No
doubt upon the field, with no stone to
mark the place, many a soldier lies
wrapt in no other shroud save the
bloody uniform in which he fought
and died for the cause he be
lieved to be right. A gentleman- at
this place, who claims to have a lot of
war relies, has what he says are the
hair, some of the bones, the thimble,
knife, and some other things that were
the property of the youngest soldier of
the Confederate army. He was a Texas
youth -and oply 14 years old when he
fell in this battle. This man claims
that he dug up these remains and
relics only a year or two ago. He also
has the ball which he took from the
head and which is supposed to have
killed the youthful soldier. The re
mains were placed in beautiful Holy
wood. Whether this tale is true or not
I do not know.
Speaking of Hollywood, I also had
the pleasure, in company with Mr.
Blialock and Rev. Jno. C. Seegers, of a
drive through this beautiful city of the
dead. I visited, of course, the grave of
President Davis. It is a lovely place,
on a high eminence overlooking the
city. It is on the banks of the James,
and the view of the city and the sur
rounding country is very fine.
There are many other places of in
terest in and around Richmond, but I
will not bore the reader longer. I had
a very pleasant trip. Reached home

time to vote. E. H. A.

WASHINGTON, June 30.-The Presi

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 30, 1893.
Whereas, distrust and apprehension
concerning the financial situation
which pervade all business circles, have
already caused great loss and damage
to our people,,.nd threaten tocrippleour
merchants, stop the wheels of manu
facture, bring distress and privation to
our farmers and withold from our

And, Whereas, the present perilous
condition is largely the result of the
financial policy which the executive
branch of the government finds em
bodied in the unwise laws which must
be executed until repealed by Congress:
Now, therefore. I, Grover Cleveland,
President of the United States, in per
foriiance of the constitutional duty, do
by this proclamation, declare that the
extra-ordinary occasion requires the
convening of both houses of the Con

TILLliAN AND THE ALLIANCE.
The Coming Annual Meeting of the Order
The meeting of the State Alliance
will be held at WValhalla on the 29th
inst., and it will be the beginning of
the great political campaign of next
summer. The Alliance will assemble
at Clemson College on the 28th, whei-e
its members will be shown over the
buildings and given a good time. The
next day they will proceed to WValhalla
for the business meeting. Governor
Tillman will probably tell the Alliance
men when at Clemson what he pro
poses to do about aceeding to their de
mands in regard to national issues, so
that the Alliance will know how to act
on the day following.
The meaning of this has already
been explained by a prominent Al
lanceman in an interview published
in this paper. If Governor Tiliman
should refuse to accede to the Alliance's
demand, it will, on the day following,
cast around for a president who will
make a suitable candidate f>r the
United States Senate.
For this reason there is at present a
great deal of uncertainty as to whom the
Alliance will choose as its president.
There are a great many names men
tioned' but the man who would fit, in
case the Alliance wishes to put up a
third candidate, is yet to be found.

WHAT THE RESS SAYS.
All Sorts of Comments from the Press of
the; State on the Newberry
The election held in Newberry Coun
ty last Thursday, seems to have been
watched with considerable interest
throughout the State. In order that
the readers of The Herald and News
may know what they are saying of us
we reprint the various press comments
irrespective of their politics :
FOOD FOR REFLEC1ION.
Dr. Wyche has been beaten for the
Newberry State Senatorship. The
Newberry Reformers have only theni
selves to reproach for the defeat of their
candidate. Personally, Mr. Mower,
the successful candidate, is irreproach
able. But politically he is not in ac
cord with the Reform cause. He will
take a high rank in the Senate, will
speak with ability and vote as his con
science dictates. But his conscience is
an anti and not a Reform conscience,
and it will lead him to vote against the
wishes of the Reformers, who are a
majority of the white voters of the
Several causes combined to socure
defeat for Dr. Wyche. They wt-re:
1. Dissatisfaction with the mode of
Dr. Wyche's "suggestion."
2. Apathy induced by the afore
3. The great ease with which the town
people, who are mostly Mowerites,
could vote, their boxes being handy.
4. The difficulty for farmers to reach
their boxes out in the country.
5. The fact that the farmers are ex
ceedingly busy with their crops at pres
The antis will be very much encour
aged by this slight success, and will
take it as an omen of future victory.
It will incite them to put forth re
doubled efforts, if that be possible.
This is one vote sacured for Butler,.
but he need not rejoice over it, for it is
not a drop in the bucket.
Reformers in every section of the
state should carefully consider cause 1
as stated above. Similar causes pro
duce similar effects. This is a well es
tablished rule in politics as well as else
where. Reformers should see to it that
similar causes are not allowed to oper
ate anywhere else,.neither in county
nor State affairs. This is a warning
and a lesson. Let it be heeded cr the
result will be sad. '
DEFEAT WILL STRENGTHEN AND SO
G. S. Mower. the Anti candidate, de
feated Dr. C. T. Wyche, the Reform
cahdidate, by a majority of about one
hundred. We are not all surprised at
this result, but it is just as we expected.
Newberry County is close anyhow,
there being a difierence of only 300 or
400 votes between the two factions of
that county. June is no time for a pri
mary, as the farmers, who constitute
the bulk of the Reform strength, are
now too busy in their fields to enter
into a political canvass with the earn
estness necessary to insure success.
Then, as usual, the Reformers were
hampered with some who were after
revenue and office only and who at
heart cared nothing for the success of
the Reform movement, except as their
rsonal ambition could be gratified.
Vhen these were cast overboard, tney
threw what strength they had ~with
the opposition. The people of New
berry in this off' year of election wisely
used the pruning knife, and this defeat
will strengthen and solidify them in
the next campaign, and will prove of
benefit not only to New berry, but to the
entire the State. Continued success
does not always neccessarily tend to
strengthen, but rather, like the winter's
fierce winds upon the oak, reverses and
disapiointments hardens and toughens
to a stronger growth. So in New berry,
and in the whole State, the Reform
movement will be greatly benefitted
by ibis defeat. New berry is the only
county where we expect defeat, and
the other five cauntie .wherein legisla
tive vacancies exist, 'vill all send true
and tried Reformers to fill the vacant
seats in the legislature.
A CoNSERVAT]VE V.tCTORY.
The Conservatives have won a no
table vietory in Newberry County. Dr.
C. T. Wyche, the Reform candidate,
being easily beaten in the primary by
Mr. Geo. S. Mower, the Conservative
The election was a special one, or
dered to fill the vacancy in the Sena
torship from that county, created by
the election of Senator Sligh as Rail
road Commissioner. It will probably
be said, and with muecb plausibility in
sisted on, thbat the Reformers were busy
looking after their grassy crops, and
paid little attention to this by-election.
However this may be, it must be con
fessed that no eff'ort was spared by the
Reformers to get out the full vote and
secure the election of Wyche. The
Columbia Register has been supporting
the candidacy of W yche very earnestly
-a fact which goes to show that the
Reform leaders at the Capital looked
with conceernl on the contest. Is this
one of those straws that show the di-L
recd ion of t he wind ? We will have to
wait and see. But this much we know
now, and that Col. Mower will make a
god Senator, anid that the cause of
Reform wvill be j'it as svfein his hands
as it would ba'e bseen in the hands of
the gentleman who o'ppure I him.
WON TIHE FIGHT ON IlHS .MERtTS.
Dr. Wyche was nominated for Sena
to: by the Tillmxanites, and announced
I tiat if elected he .would vote against
Butler for the United States Senate.
Thc Administration organs tom-tomed
for him as well as they could.. The
Conservatives said nothing, but went
ahead and voted. The election of Mr.
Mower vindicates the wisdom of their
policy. Either Newberry is an ti-Till
man now or there are a good many
Tillmaites there -who are mighty good
judges of men and not inclined to be
The election of Mr. George S. Mower
as Senator for Newberry county is a
gratifying indication that under nor
mal conditions the people will do the
right thing. Mr. Mower is well knowvn
as a Conservative, and an attemplt was
made by the Tillman organs to draw
the factional line against him, but the
Conservaiies re;used to respond in
kind; and as there wvas no issue to
arouse passion Mr. Mower wvon a quiet
fight on his merits. He will prove to
be the best Senator New berry has had
for a long time. H is victory is one of
general common sense and sober
thought rather than one of faction.
A STRONG MOvEMENT AGAINST CAUCUS
[Greens ille Newrs.]
There appears to be a strong move
ent in Newberry county against cau
cus rule. The result there is the ex
pression of the judgment of the people.
There would have been that same kind
of expression last year in New berry and
many other counties had it not been
for the constant and violent appeals to
prejudice and application of pressure
of all possible kinds.
It is not directly an administration
defeat, although it does score a point
for Butler in a kind of a skirmish pre
liminary to next year's big fight. So
far as we have observed the issue be
tween Tillman and anti-Tillman was
not generally made. The victory ap
pears to be one of free thought and ac
tion over caucus rule. In that sense
it is important and the people of New
berry deserve to be thanked and con
gratulated by the people of the other
counties of the State.
.Aoher gatifying fact is that the
forces of conservatism are evidently not
dead or demoralized or surrendered
since the defeat of last year. They are
very much alive and full of fight.
Geo. S. Mower, Conservative, was
nominated by a majority of about 150
over Dr.Wyche, Tillmanite. The result
is the outcome of the attempted caucus
rule by the Tillmanites of that county,
and shows that some of the people ob
ject to being dictated to by the party
THE ONLY QUALIFICATION.
[Rock Hill Herald.]
George S. Mower, Conservative, has
been nominated for the State Senate
from Newberry county by a good ma
jority over his opponent, whose chief
qualification seems to have been an un
just opposition to Senator Butler.
THE DISPENSAR' OUTLOOK
Result of First Day Sales--Future Prospects
Not Very Bright
COLUMBIA, July 2.-Dispensary or
no dispensary things are very quiet at
the State capital, and no one would
have any right to think that an un
equalled and revolutionary law had
just gone into effect. The people of
Columbia are taking the matter phi
losophically and have very little to say.
There are some of the old topers who
are, however, missing their usual morn
ing cocktail. Up to this time they
have found no general place where
they can get a "nip" on the sly, or
ortherwise. it is, however, currently
reported that those who have managed
to get the pass-word could this morning
get their usual drink by paying the
prica. It would hardly be expected
that the blind tigers would show them
selves quite so early. The "tigers" are,
however, beginning to spy the land,
and are making a careful inquiry as to
where they had best make their at
It is practically impossible after the
first day's experience of the dispensary
system to even speculate on how It is
going to work. It might, however, be
interesting to study the figures for what
they are worth and maY be in about a
week something more definite can be
had. The reports in the morning pa
pers in regard to the dispensaries:
Orangeburg, not ready for business.
Abeville, no report.
Lexington, afraid of Unites States
license. None on band.
Newberry, 110 sales at 2.5 cents
Lewiedale, no Federal license.
Florence, no report.
Darlington, operation prevented by
Georgetown, no report.
Aiken, no report.
Greenville, not ready for business.
Camddn, 110 pints at 40 cents; 2 do
zen beer at 15 cents. Total $47 60.
Edgefield, 45 sales, $18.
Columbia bond not filed.
Bome speculation may be had out of
these figures, although they can hardly
be expected to indicate the future busi
ness of the state bar. For instance the
aggregate sales vi the three counties
given is $93; this -would make an aver
age:of $31 to the county.
If as has been estimated by Governor
Tillman that the profits -would for the
first year be $500,000 it would require
an average sale of $11,500 per day for
the state, or $400 per county per day.
This is made upon an estimate of the
sale of one million gallons of liquor at
an average price of $3 50 per gallon,
making the gross sale $3,500,000 on
which the estimated profit to the state
is to be *1 per gallon, and out of this
the expenses of the detectiv,. service
and distribution are to be paid.
Taking the sales 'of yesterday asa
basis, the.aggregate sales for twenty
nine dispensaries would be $900, just
$10,400 short of the estimated figures
that are to give the State the $500,000
profit. The sales yesterday will just
about pay operatingexpenses, counting
the salary of the county dispenser at
$1,000 perc year, rent, freight, clerical
hire, etc. -
It is for the present rather---libe
ral to count upon twenty-nine cotin
ties, as six counties, are entirely un
der prohibitory laws, and York
might, for all practical purposes, be so
considered. Then the counties that
will not have dispensaries will more
than counterbalance those counties
that will have more than one dispen
If things keep up as they have started
it will be seen that the state has not
such a bonanza as was expected, the
money question having been made the
most important in the entire matter.

catch them delivering ivhiskey under
such an order from the railroads the

that these railroads will always stay in

any way, but any employee who wil

[Special to the News-Courier.)
WASHINGTON, July 1.-Quite a sen
sation has been created here in South
ern circles by the arrest late to-night of
E. Brooks Sligh, of South Carolina.
A S1igh, it will be remembered, is the
yoNg man who ran for Congress at the
last election in the district which
Thomas Jefferson Strait, of Lancaster,
was successful. Some time ago Sligh
swore out a search warrant against a
Mrs. Emily J. Brazier, of this city. He
alleged that Mrs. Brazier stole two
trunks from him containing goods
valued at $250. To-night two.. detect
ives called at Sligh's lodgings and ar
rested him on a cbarge of perjury.
Mrs. Brazier declares that Sligh is
guilty of "wilful and corrupt perjury."
Sligh is equally positive of the truth of
his offensive assertions. - He Is a young
man of good standing here and is v ell
liked all over town. He is employed
as a clerk in the United States Senate.
His friends have assured him of their
sympathy. He is now confined in the
first precinaatation house.

-every poison and impurity of your
blood, by Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery. Then there's a clear
skin and a clear system. Tetter,
Salt-rheum, Eczema, Erysipelas,
Boils, Carbuncles, Enlarged Glands,
Tumors and Swellings, and all
Blood, Skin, and Scalp Diseases,
from a common blotch or eruption
to the worst scrofula - these are
perfectly and permanently cured
In building .up needed flesh and
strength of Opalc, puny, scrofulous
children, nothing can equal it.
Unlike the ordinary spring medi
cines or sarsaparillas, the "Discov
ery" works equally well at all
seasons. All the year round, and
in all cases, it is guaranteed, as no
other blood medicine is. If it ever
fails to benefit or cure, you have
your money back. It's not only the
best blood-purifier, but it's the
cheapest. You pay only for the
good you get.
Buy. of reliable dealers. With
any others, something else that pays
them better will probably be urged
as "just as good."
Perhaps it is, for them; but it
can't be, for you.
