The Reunion of Confederate Veterans
Some Things We Saw and Some Obser
vatioas on the Trip-The Newberry
I made brief mention last week of
the delegates from New berry for the
Reunion of Confederate Veterans held
in Birmingham, Ala. Our trip was
made in safety. From Atlanta we
went by tha Georgia Pacific, a portion
of the Richmond & Danville system.
The service was good and we arrived
at 11 o'clock the same night. As our
train rolled in there was booming of
cannon and the band was playing
Dixie. The city was full of people.
We soon had quarters for all of our
party at the Florence House, except
Capt. Schumpert and myself, who se
cared a room at the private residence
of Mr. Finley. Our sojourn was very
On the outgoing trip we were joined
by many South Carolinians and we
had no occasion at any time to feel like
strangers in a strange land. There are
eertain things that have a tendency to
make all the world feel akin, and the
trials and hardship of camp life is one
of those things, so far as it concerns
those who endured them, and the rest
of us soon caught the inspiration.
It is a matter of sincere and deep felt
regret to all South Carolinians who
were present and not only to them, but
to veterans from all of the States repre
sented, that Gen. Wade Hampton was
not present. It would have done his
heart good to know and hear and feel
the enthusiasm that was created at the
bare mention of his name. From the
expressions that I have heard and the
demonstrations I have seen the con
clusion is inevitable that in all the
Southland no Confederate hero is held
in higher esteem and his presence
would have added great interest to
this gathering. When Gen. Under
wood in his address referred to a letter
he had from.Gen. Hampton saying
that he would be in Chicago on the
30th of May to make sn address in
connection with ceremonies appropriate
to the Confederate monument erected
in that city, there was a spontaneous
outbreak of enthusiasm and the wig
wam fairly shook with the old Confe
derate yell. It was the same thing
coming over on the train from Atlanta.
Speaking of Gen. Hampton, I want
to say that I had the pleasure of meet
ing Gen. Miller, of Florida, who, by
the way, looks very much like General
Hampton, and who tells me he has
often been taken for him, and he too
expressed sincere regret. that Hampton
was not here. He says that last year
he went all the way to the meeting of
Survivors in Augusta for the main par
pose of meeting and doing honor to1
Hampton. Is it not strange that the
vicissitudes of politics in our State
should have turned down a man,aud fcr
no cause, who is so honored and revered
and beloved throughout this entire
We had on our train General C. A.
Evans, whom all the Georgians I talked
with say is to be the next Governor of
Georgia. I do not know his comretitor,
but from whbat I saw of him Geoagia
will make no mistake in elevating such
a man to the Governor's chair. I
could not help wishing if we are to have
an Evans for Governor in South Caro
lina that only we had one like unto the
Evans of Georgia-as gentle and kind
. and humble as a child, and withal as
brave and courgeous as it is necessary
* for man to be. That is the impression
I formed from a short interview with
We also had on the train Dr. J. W.
Jones, who was chaplain under Lee.
He is enthusiastic on the subject of a
history of the United St ates for use in
our schools, written by a Southern man
and pubUshed by a Southern house,
that will give the South justice, and
-when the admirable report of the com
mittee on that subject was submitted by
Gen. S. D. Lee, Dr. Jones made an
impassioned appeal on the subject,
which seemed to have a response in
every heart present.
The only idea in the plan is that the
South shall have justice and be given
the credit that is due for thbe part sbe
has taken in making the history of this
country, not only in reference to the
late war, but from the formation of the
Constitution, one that will give our
children the correct statement of the
causes that led to the war. I hope that
* the full text of the report of the com
mittee will be given wide circulation.
It is a good paper and needs to be read
by every Southern man who has any
patriotism in his bosom.
The old Confederates are not all dead
yet. Any one who was present at Bir
mingham can testify to this fact, and
I hope the spirit which actuated those
who had a part ini that greatest of
struggles may never die. It was an in
spiration to be present at this meeting,
and so closely did I attend the sessions
of the meeting that I saw but little of
the city of Birmninghamn. I deligh ted
to look in the faces of those old vet
erans and to hear themi talk. It gave
me more pleasure than seeing the
sights around the city. If the reader
would like an account of the beauties
of the city I will have to refer him toI
Col. Maffett and Capt. Long of our
Gen.. Gordon, the Commander-in
chief, is a grand man and it was a
pleasure to hear him taik. His re
sponse to the addresses of a elcome was
eloquent. Gov. Jones, of Alabama,
also made an eloquent speeeb in bid-)
ding the veterans welcome.
But one of the most flowery and or-1
nate speeches of the occasion was made)
by Judge N. G. McKittrell, of Houston,'
Texas, in ir.viting the veterans to hold
the next reunion in that city; and he
succeeded in carrying the point amtirI
great enthusiasm. And by the way,
he told me in eonversation afterwards
that his mother was a native of New
berry District, though he was born in
Alabama. Her maiden name was Go
I also met Gov. Hogg and had quite
a little talk with him. He too claims
to be a descendant of Newberry, his
father having been born in this dis
trict and his grandf:sther having en
tered the Revolutionary army from
Newberry. But he and Col. Maffett
became quite cbummy. In presenting
his friend Capt. Long, Col. Mal'ett
said to the Texas Governor: "This is
my friend Bill Long, from Smokey
Town, two miles from Prosperity, near
where I was born." Of course Gov.
Hogg was glad to know the gentleman
from Smokey Town, and knew all
about that locality. We have a great
county. We not only produce great
men who stay with us, but we furnish
them for other States as well, and
wherever you go you find them always
towards the front.
The reunion was held in the Winnie
Davis Wigwam, built especially for the
purpose and was said to seat comforta
bly something over 9,000. That being
the case, there must have been present
at the meetings and tableaux over
12.000 persons. And when the Rebel
yell was given the Wigwam fairly
Neither Mrs. Davis nor her daughter
Miss Winnie was present. Why I do
not know. There were several prom
inent beauties there, however. Miss
Lucy Lee Hill, daughter of Gen. A. P.
Hill, was present and was a centre of
attractiou. The South Carolina dele
gates paid her marked attention, and
among these were the Newberry rep
resentatives. She is a very handsome
and a very charming young lady. She
held a reception at the Caldwell House
and was the recipient of many tokens
of regard and esn:em. T will not be
telling tales out of schooi if I say that
Col. Culbreath placed upon her every
badge and rosette that be had worn,
in addition to paying her very great
and very marked attention and secur
ing her autograph card. And by the
way, he was the Chesterfield of our
party and was greatly admired by all
the ladies. Being tall, handsome, and
possessing a commanding presence, he
was a central figure in any gathering
and was much admired by all the la
dies, who invariably addressed him as c
Col. Crlbreath. While marching in
the procession the ladies literally filled I
his hat with flowers. He says it was
because he was so tall, but I think
there are other reasons. I hope Mrs.
C. will not become jealous and not let
him attend the next reunion, because
he did the honors for our party in
handsome style. <
The young ladies representing the
several States also had a reception at
the Caldwell House. I tried to attend,
but I soon found myself pressed in
among the crowd like sardines in a
box, and as soon as I could get out I
moved down stairs. -I made the effort
to pay homage to the young ladies, but
could not stand being pressed in'- such
style. The young lady representing
South Carolina was Miss Hayne, of
Greenville, and was second to none in
personal beauty and attractiveness.
I attended only one of the tableaux
at the Wigwam. The Wigwam was
filled and the entertainment wvas a
grand success. In presenting the .States
South Carolina's fair daughter was, of
course, the first to step forward and
plant her flag with the Confederacy, as
she was the first State to begin the
Confederacy. The singing of the
"Bonnie Blue Flag" by Miss Annie
Gorman, with a full chorus of 10,000
voices, was simply grand. The recita
tion, "Lee to the Rear," by Miss For- I
rest, was also very fine.i
In the procession before the review
ing stand South Carolina occupied the''
first place in the column, and had about
seventy-five veterans in line. Theret
must have been about one hundred l
and fifty delegates present from South
Carolina, but many of them did not a
care to go in the procession. Gov. C
Tillman occupied a prominent position
on the grand stand. It was a long
procession and thousands of people a
witnessed it move along, and man ,
were the cheers received by the (...ro
linians as they passed by. Caipt, ,yister
Gary was one of the ding offi- ~
cers in the line of
This leads me~ .ake an observa- a
tion not, strictly 'speaking, a part oft
the reunion. Gov. Tillman was pres
ent, not as a veteran, but by invitation, I
along with the Governors from other ~
Southern States. He may have been e
met at thbe train by Mr. Kolb. In re
turn for this he miay have called to see
Mr. Kolb. About these things I can- d
not speak positively, for I do not know. I
But suppose he did, it does not seem to d1
me to be exactly the proper thing for c
our bomne papers to be following him
up to Birmingham and watching his ~
every movement and then trying to ~
guess his motives in going. To sayt
the least, it is not in good taste and .
can do our cause at home no good. 1 "
saw Gov. Tillman there, and so far as a
I observed he conducted himself prop-t
erly wh ile there. I called at his room
at the Morris House the afternoon of 0
the day he arrived and found him a
alone, resting vuietly. He had just re-"
turned from a drive over the city. I u
saw him again that night in the hotel
Lobbies. He was possibly not honored e'
by the old soldier etlement as was Gen. a
(Jordon, but then he is not a veteran,t
snd many more of us are not veterans. O'
[ have never supported Governor Till- a
rnan by my vote for nomination, but I IE
lo believe in being fair to him and tE
;iving him justice, and this thing of tI
diaving him specially watched and try- a
ng to make big capital of his meeting
Kolb I do not believe is either fair or
ust, and I do not believe will do any g
rood. Unless we want to keep open t
orever the breach in this State we! "a
vill have to stop just such things as ri
his. Gov. Tillman told me he had ,
Limply come to the reunion and did f6
ot intend to go further. Why should
[hbave believed and said that he was
roing further to consult with Popu
ists'* He returned home when heh
aid he Was going to, and thus demon
Ltrated that he only went to the re- ti~
minn. This thingo f nq,estioning one ti
another's imotives and always seeing a
bad motive for everything that is done
must be stopped, if we are ever to have
peace in this State. But I do not want
any politics in this letter. I think as
Lbe Governor of the first State that en
'ered the Confederacy it was proper
for hiu to have attended this reunion,
and I think as he did attend he should
be treated with justice and the respect
due to the office he holds.
An old veteran from Campbell, Hunt
County, Texas, brought a basket of
roses all the way from the Lone Star
State to be presented to Gen. Gordon.
His name is S. H. McElreath. The
presentation was an affecting scene.
The proposition to make the 3d day
Df June a legal holiday, or that it be
eelebrated by the United Confederate
Veterans with appropriate ceremonies
in honor of the cirthday of Mr. Davis,
was received with enthusiasm. A dele
ate from Florida stated that in Florida
an Act of the Legislature bad already
been passed and was now so observed.
The resolution asks that all Southern
States pass a similar Act.
Gen. Underwood in his earnest ap
peal for money to pay for the monu
aent to the unknown dead in Chicago
'ucceeded in getting about $1,800, but
ays that he needs as much more to
inish paying it. There wassome rivalry
n making contributions, and some of
he camps contributed as much as $150.
ieu. Underwood says they still want
tbout $1,500 more to finish paying for
:he monument and to have a small
und on hand.
In Birmingham as everywhere else
you find Newberrians. I do not know
iow many are there. In company
vith Capt. Schumpert I went out to
Bast Lake to call on Mrs. Walter and
mer mother, Mrs. Kingsmore. Mr.
E. W. Walter has a good position and
s doing well. He has a very comforta
)le home. Mrs. Kingsmore I believe
2as grown younger. Mr. Walter was
xceedingly kind and attentive to our
ewberry party, taking them in

JUSTICE FOR POPE AND GARY.
The Herald and News does not take
~ny stock in the severe criticisms of
ustice Pope in his decision on the Dis
ensary law. A discussion of his opin
on and of the subject generally is un
>bjectionable and, in fact, we think
vill be beneticial, but it should be di
'orced from personal abuse of Justice
"ope. It is not right, or just, or fair,
o question his motives and to charge
tim with making a partizan decision
or political purposes. If he had been
uch a Judge his decision in the Banik
ases would have been ditff<enit. We
nay n't agree with b ihiiI hlis reason
ug and conclusions, but let us at least
ive Yim credit for bont-t motives and
otentions. We condemn such criti
isms of the .j udges who agree with us
y the newspapers which do not think
s we do. Then let us deal with Mr.
'ope as we would be dealt with.
Then again it seems to us that it is
little premature anid an injustice
o Mr. Gary to conclude in ad
-ance that he will decide as Mr. Pope
as done. So far as we know and so far
s we have seen Mr. Gary has given no
xpression from which we can conclude
'hat his position is on this subject and
uch prejudging of him it seems to us
nes him injustice. He made a record
r fairness and impartiality as presi

granting licen-es for the sale of
whiskey. How the matter of securing
a license from the couuty is to be man
aged we do not know. As we nnder
stand the administration has given
notice to the treasurers not to grant
license. We suppose that a case will
soon be taken to the Supreme Court in
which we can have determined the true
status. It seems to us that the Town
Council of Newberry has done the
proper thing. It is also a pleas
ure to us to be in accord in our intre
pertation of the decision with two such
distinguished lawyers as Mr. Geo. B.
Cromer, city attorney, and Mr. J. F. J.
It would seem that the admiinistra
tion is determined if possible to pre
vent a full settlement of the dispeu
sary question. In a case the other day
that was brought before a trial justice
to make up a test case the Attorney
General ordered the trial justice to re
lease the prisoner, it seems, so as to
prevent the case coming up. The posi
tion of Gov. Tillman being that we
have free liquor, we suppose he wants
to give the prohibitioni=ts their full
measure for opposing the dispensary.
We think the solution of the matter is
s>me good and wise hith license law
embodying the good features of the
dispensary law. We do not like the
idea of the State being in the whiskey
business, We hope there will be somie
w:se solution of the whole qu:stion.
