JAMES D. NANCE CAMP
A Tribute to the Memory of a Comrade
Other Matters of Interest Transacted.
The James D. Nance Camp, No. 336,
United Confederate Veterans, met in the
:ourthouse Monday, October 2nd, at ii
A quorum being present the minutes
were read and sustained.
Dr. S. Pope, from the committee ap
pointed to draft resolutions on the death
>f Capt. Asa P. Davis, made the following
repor' u-"ich was adopted:
TRIBUTE OF RESPECT.
Asa Pitts Davis, born the 15th day of April, IS2o,
md died the 4th day of August, 1893, in the 74th
rear of his age.
He was twice married-first to Catharine Man
fum, and after her death to Matilda Satterwhite.
Eis four sons survive him.
Mr. Davis, in all the relations of life, bore him
elf with conspicuous fidelity. In his family he
-as gentle and affectionate, as a neighbor he was
:onsiderate and unselfish, as a citizen he. was
aithful and patriotic, and as a Christian pure and
levoted. For many years he served the Bush
Liver Baptist church as one of its deacons.
However beautiful the life of this truly good
nan appeared to us, his friends and neighbors,
ret it was as a soldier we love to think of him.
At the beginning of the war of 186r-'65he served
n the State troopes, and soon joined the army of
gorthern Virginia as a member of Co. B. 3d South
arolina Infantry. Quiet and uuobtrusive he
;hirked no duty or danger; amidst mists and
langers he was firm and brave. He was twice
everely wounded-first at the battle of Savage
5tation on the 29th of June, 1862, and a second
ime at the Wilderness on 6th day of May, 1864.
We recognize in the death of Mr. Davisthe truth
hat the ranks of the survivors of that grandotrug
;le for liberty made by the late Confederate States,
rre gradually melting away. We bow in submis
dion to this loss, but a as slight testimony of our
-egard for our departed comrade; be it
Resolved, 1. That we derish the memory of
E.sa P. Davis as a son of Newberry, who was faith
7ul to all of the demands of life.
2. That as a soldier of the Southern Confederacy
here was nothing in the life and services of our
leceased comrade but that warranted praise and
3. That in his death Newberry County has lost
t devoted son; his late comrades in arms a true
omrade, and his family one whose devoted life
Ividenced his deep attachment.
4. That a pagesof our minute book be devoted
to his memory.
5. That a copy of this action of the James D.

that the same be publish4 in the newspapers of

The Old Graveyard.
The Herald and News has been trying
for some time to get up a fund to have
the old village cemetery cleaned up and
put in good condition. We have received
some subsctiptions and have $9.20 in
bank from the fund contributed by the
Y. B. T. Company. The committee we
suggested some time ago to visit the
grounds has performed its duty' and
makes report this week, which report we
publish in this connection. To fix up
the grounds as they should be will take
some money, but we believe the people
of Newberry will contribute to this now
too long neglected work. A little from
each one will make up the necessary
amount, and no one will feel the money
The books are now open, and all who
feel an interest in this work can leave
their money with The Herald and News,
and an acknowledgemelit of the amounts
will be made each week, and the money
deposited in bank along with that we

The following is the report of the com

The following, a committee a ppointed to visit
the Old Village Graveyard, would report:
That on Monday, the 2nd of October, they went
to the grounds and made a personal inspection of
the same, and find that it should be cleaned off
and enclosed. They would therefore recoin
i. That the grounds be enclose4 Wth n neat
wire fence and that a sufficient space be left doi
the east side for a roa41 or street:
2.'That the bushes and rubbish be cleared off
and the grounds neatly cleaned up.
During the next few days the committce will
solicit and receive bids for doing the work and as
soon as the bids are received they will be in posi.
tion to state what the work will cost.
C. F. BOvD,
E. C. JoNES,

The committee will proceed to secure
bids for the work and as soon as th.ey 4do
we will publish an estim~ate of what the
cost will be, but there is not much likeli
hood of our getting more money than it
will take to do the work, so the work of
contributing can go forward.

down there and look iat the grounds will
soon be conviaced of the necessity of the

Opening of the Session 1893-'94-Large
Number of Students- Encouraging Pros
pects of this Crowing Institution
The thirty fi;th annual sesi 'n :.f
this progressive Institution of learning
opened on Tuesdlay, October 3.1, at 9
a. in., the exercises 1eing colducted by
Rev. Dr. G. W. Holland, Wno enters
upon his sixteenth year as President.
About 90 students were present, and
the number who will arrive during the
next few days is expected to extend
beyond one bundred.
After the usual devotional exercies
and anno..ncements, the students pro
ceeded to the recitation rooms of the
professors for further assignweuts and
examination. A glance into the faces
of the young mea indicates a serious
resolution with the most of theni to do
earnest, conscientious work and there
is every prospect of a pleasant and suc
The number catalogued during the
last seven years shows most encourag
ing progress, notwithstanding the in
creasing financial depression during
that period, as indicated by the follow
ing figures: 1887, 69; 1888, 105; 1889, 103;
1890, 127; 1891,:107; 1892,.98; 1893, 119.
The smaller numbers for '91 and '92 are
attributed to the opening of the New
berry Graded School, and the conse
quent demention of the number of
students in the Preparatory depart
ment. Though th.' Graded Schools
continue to flourish, 6he college is be
ginning to recovred what it lost in pre
vieus years as shown by the catalogue
number for 1893.
The present opening is the largest
since the war and it is quite probable
that the number of students will ex
ceed any previous year. . Notwith
standing the increasing competition
through the opening of new: institu
tions abd'the stronger exertions made
by those of longer standing, New berry
college, by her silent though potent in
fluence, and more than all through her
superior advantages and instruction,
has risen ye.r by year, and now re
ceives the high endorsement by the
President of Yale, of being one of the
first colleges of our whole country.

Superintendent Mayfleld and Mr. McMahon
Engage in a F1aticuff..
Conumnza, S. C., September 28.-State
Superintendent of Education W. D.
Mayied and Mr. J. J. McMahon recent
ly of South Carolina College, now repre
senting a book publishing firm, .engaged
in a brief fisticuff, this evening. Neither
was hurt, the men being separated before
any damage was done.
The fuss arose from the results of the
recent adoption of books for the public
schools by the State Board, of which
Mayfield is chairman. Mayfield had as
sured McMahon that his books were the
best, but did not vote for them. Both
men were asked for statemients, but had
very little to say for publication. Te
have been summoned to appear before he
mayor to-morrow, and if reports are true
there.may be some very sensational talk.
it is stated that during the conversation
between the two men this evening, Mr.
Mayfleld asked Mr. McMahQon if he be
lieved he were honest, why was it that
he had sought an explanation of him
(Mayield) for not voting for his (McMa
lion's) books. It is said that-Mr.-McMa
hon declined to certify very strongly to
the honesty part of it, whereupon Mr.
Mayfield struck him, and the intercom
munication of blows followed.

The speech of Hon. Joseph L. Keitt,
mn Friday, was one of the best and most
icceptable addresses from an Alliance

xplicit and decided in his opinions, but
