A HAEBI4GER OF PEACE. I
May the building of the Woman's r
College indeed prove a I arbinger of c
peace and good will again in our State.)
The corner stone of this institution was e
laid at Rock Hill last Saturday with
imposing ceremonies and in the pres- I
ence of a large concourse of people. It
was an occasion on which fational and
political diff'erences were forgotten and 0
laid aside. The building of this College ;
is-one thing on which all the people of il
this State have been united. There has y
not been one to raise his voice against c
the undertaking. It is too apparent r
that the education of our women has a
been neglected, has not been given the d
attention it deserves, nor that which 5
has been given to the education of our c
boys. It being the one thing upon L
which our people are united we trust it t
may be the beginning of an era of good t
will and harmony and peace in our old
Gov. Tillman made the opening ad
dress and it was a good and strong and j
conservative speech. He recognizes the e
fact that it is time for the people to
stop quarreling among themselves, and
to go to work for the good of the State. y
We wish very much that we had tpace :
to present to our readers the full text of
this address. We should like for them t
all to see it and read it. We are glad p
to be able to commend it most heartily 11
and we only hope that Gov. Tillman
will continue to preacn the doctrine of
peace and good will and not only to e
preach it on occasione like this but to
act it in his officialand private canacity. 0
We desire to quote his closing para- t
graph.4 Here it is: . r
"Before closing I want to give empha- e
sis to one thought. I have already 1
pointed out the unanimity with which b
men of all classes, conditions and ideas t
have joined hands in aiding to erect 0
this school. It is the one thing and the t
only thing upon which the men of t
South Carolina are at present united.
Only alluding, in passing, to the divi
sion and bitterness which exist among R
our people, allow me to ixpress the '
hope that this point of union may grow r
and spread; that the inspirations of this x
day may prove a barbinger and help to
Lasten the restoration of that harmony P
and friendly feeling which once existed D
and which must necessarily return be- v
fore we can have any great degree of g
prosperity. Our interests are one, our b
ancestry is the same-let us yield to the c
rule of justice and reason and the gov- a
ernment of the majority, for we be t]
brethren. Why not ;dwell together as P
As in the days of old the ancient A
Sabines were brought to peace with the
Romans by the women who had been t]
seized and borne off captives to become t]
the wives of the latter; so may the wo- "
men of South Carolina become our ti
Let them take hold of the work in t]
earnest-go to all the campaign meet
ings in full force to make their fathers, e
husbands and brothers behave them- E
selves; and at the end of the summer ti
we will have something better than b
prohibition or the sub-treasury: fc
"Peace in all our hearts,
Peace in all our homes."
Then too this was an occasion on a1
which the State newspaper and Gov. b
*Tillman got together. It gives us pleas- b
ure to quote the following from an
editorial in this newspaper which also sl
contained Goy. Tillmnan's speech. After rt
-*recounting briefly the history of the e~
building of this institution The State
"The addresses made yesterday by
Governor Tillmnan and Speaker Jones I
appropriately recognized these facts b
-and were attuned to a patriotic note. as
Both were as neariy non-partisan as 10
-could have been wished and both were sc
good. It gives us pleasure to commend at
the spirit in which the Governor met ftu
the occasion. His address was thought- ]
ful, strong and altogether creditable, te
and it is easy to see that his pride is to
-great ini the instil ution whose establish- ~
went he has so earnestly promoted. w
Book Hill and the whole country tl
round combined to do the honors of a D
hearty hospitality, and thie triumph of d(
civic enterprisemade the hearts of all hi
her people glad. It was a memorable a!
day, and one of great good omen.n o~
We trust it is a good omen andy
means much in more ways than one
for South Carolina. Let us mark this
day as the beginning of the return of
good will and peace and the death
knell of prejudice and hatred and bitterb
and unreasoning partisanship. t
*Speaker Ira B. Sones was the qrator
of the day and made a capital speech. tb
The corner stone was laid with Ma- a
sonic ceremonies. The Clemson Col
lege Cadets and faculty went over in ab
body. Altogether it was a memorable
day and marks an epoch in the history is
of the State. Let us rid ourselves of
the strife stirzers and get together for
the good of South Carolina.
The Herald and News has no quarrel dc
with Mr. Benj. Halfacre if his con- t
science and his honor require him to tu
vote the Populist ticket. It is a right
which an American citizen is sLpposed
to enjoy to vote as he pleases. It is his
duty to vote as his conscience and dt
honor dictate. But we do not see how a
a man who votes the Populist ticket
can claim to be a Democrat. Mr. Half- *
acre does not say whether he voted for to
Weaver or Harrison or Cleveland, elec
tors. Our recollection is that he signed
the call issued by Mr. J. WV. Bowden sa
for a convention of Weaverites. Our
conclusion was that he voted for Wea- hij
vern electors. That being the case we fo
presumed he was a Third Partyite as ar
Mr. Weaver was the candidate of that Sa
party. That being the case we did noty
see how be could consistently be a memi- vi
ber of a Democratic executive commit- W
tee. A man cannot be a Populist and aa
Democrat both at the same time. Thbey
are two distinct parties. That is all t
there is of it.
It is said that WV. D. Evans, has th
about concluded to drop out of thbe race te
for Governor and that thbe field will be w
left to Jno. Gary Evans and WV. H. dc
Ellerbe. If WV. D. Evans enters the w:
race for Congress whbat is to become of in
Congressman McLaurin? Maybe he it
will come in the gubernationlal race as
a dark horse. He and Joo. Gary Evans ;
could work up a lively little campaign. s
We believe that the Greenvi.le News E:
has aboub withdraw%' his fast racer and t b
original reformer, Gen. R R. Hemp- tb
hill, of the Abbeville Medium. It is w
very pleasant to have no particular ar
candidate for any office and t bat is tulec
nnition of The Herald and News. 1elt

NEwBERRY, S. C., May 10th, 1894.
apt. E. H. Aull, New6erry, S. C.
MY DEAR Sip: For some time I
ave been watching with interest the
ditorial columns of the paper that y< u
ave the honor to edit with unusual
J have reached the conclusion that
Ou deserve the commendation of the
atriotle citizens of your county and
,tate; and that you will have the ap
royal of fair minded men, whose pa
riotism rises above the prejudi.ces of
arty or faction. Your insistence for
Lw and order, regardless of your
pinion of the men whose duty it is to
xecute law, and maintain order, is
Lrtainly wise and patriotic. When
.en are so inflamed by passion, and
linded by prejudice, as to regard the
verthrow of those to whom they are
pposed as paramount to all else (even.
2ough these are in the places of
ilers), they unwittingly become the
emies of society, and of the best
iterests of civil government. In their
lind rage against these, Samson like,
Jey will take hold of the main pillows
f the temple of government, and over
irow it, even though they, with the
3ousands, perish in the ruins.
On the one band it is written in the
ook of books: "The God of Israel
tid. the Rock of.L-rael spake to me,
i.e that ruleth over men nust be first
.ling in the fear of- God."' 28am.
Ungodly, profane and lewd men in
lace and power (either in State or
ational) are a curse to a people. Those
rho occupy such places should be
-dly and swt-red, as the veritable
igh priest of God appointed to exe
ite governments for .His people. They
re indeed God's vice-gerents. "For
iere is no power, but of God, the
Dwers that be are ordained of God.
or he is the minister of God to thee
r good." Rom. xiii: 1-4.
But it is a grevious evil, also, to bring
e offices into contempt, and make
em as the seats:of the devils by un
arranted and unlawful attacks upcn
e officers. It is written: "Thou shalt
A revile the gods (judges), nor curse
e rulers of thy people."
The grandest man that graced the
rrth, since the days of Moses, un
itingly rebuked the high priest, and
ins apologized for it: "I wist not
rethren that he was the high priest,
r it is written: Thou shalt not speak
ril of the ruler of thy people."
Even "Michael, t he archangel, when
tending with the devil he disputed
>ot the body of Moses, durst not
ing against him a railing accusatior.,
:it said: The Lord rebuke thee." The
eklessness with which mien revile
ose in high places is amazing and
ocking to the simple minded.- When
en "despise dominion, and speak
ii of dignities," they sow the seeds of
rarchy and misrule, that will bring a,
rvest of disgrace and woe to the
isest and best of people.
It is with the greatest reluttance that
refer to topics claimed so exclusively
rpoliticians, but there is a moral
pect to them which involves the best
test of our common country and of
ciety at large, which demands the
tention of the humblest citizen
rthest removcd fromu political
ethods. I do not write in the in
rest of any party, or faction; neither
defend nor blame any man or set of t
en; but to do what I can to aid those
bo are manfully resisting the evil
at is threatening~ society and our f
moeratic government. I do not en- t
re all you write, but I do mosti
artily commend the wise, patriotic
d noble stand that you have taken
the great question above referred to.
Please accept the thanks of one of
~ur humble fellow citizens.

The Newberry Herald and News
's it is not right, or just, or fair to
etion the motivesof Justice Pope in
e Dispensary matter and to charge,

d N., didn't Justice Pope intimate

u no word of censure for him? In
aw of all the circumstane's of the case
think The Herald anl News went
ittle cut of its way in its defence of
stice Pope.-Johnston MIonitor.
n so far as Justice Pope questioned e

partyite or a Democrat? And is he a
proper person to sit in a Democratic
executive committee as one of the
advisers of the Democracy?
DEMOCRAT OR POPULIST. WHICH?.
An Explanation Which Does Not Explain
Mr. BenJ. Halfacre Seems a Little sea
sitive-Ne One is Taunting Him.
To the Editor of The Herald and
News: In your issue of May 2nd I see
my name alluded as a "pronounced
Third partyite." If you intend to in
timate by this allusion that I am not
strictly entitled to 'represent a Demo
cratic club, I have this to say:
I supported State Democracy hon
estly and conscientiously. Differing
from a large majority of my Demo
cratic friends I carried my honor and
conscience with me in national poli
ties and voted for that party which co
incided most nearly with our State
Democracy, which, in the exercise of
my right of citizenship, I felt it to be
my conscientious duty to support as
true D,mocrecy. I profess to be what
is called in 'olities a Democrat, but I.
do not yield to another a right to in
terpret to me what is Democratic and 1
what is not. Especially do I not yield
this right of interpretation to a conven
tion, cominated by men and interests
which I consider as inimical to the in
terests of the country in which I live.
I have thus stated my reasons for
the course I pursued in national peli
tics. I do not intend to force or ingra
tiate myself into any political party;
and if the explaiation which I have
made has explained me out of the
Democratic party, I am willing to stay
out of the party. I am not ashamed
of the course I have taken. Under the
same circumstances I will do the same 1
thing again. If what I have said
makes me a Third partyite, a commiu
nist, a socialist, a populist or an an
archist, I will not be ashamed of any
opprobrium which may attach to my
name on that account. I carry my
monitor with me, and stand acquitted
before it. The gibes and taunts of
thoughtless persons will not move me
to a violation of my conscience.
Commisioper Shockley Explain.
To the Editor of The Herald and
News: In your issue of May 9, 1894, in
your corregolMdence from Prosperity, t
it is stated that I am "censured severe- f

burial of a certain corpse. I have otly e
to say that the first knowledge of the
uicide and inquest reached me through ,
the Coroner, after he had held the in
quest and returned to Newberry. He
told me that all that was expected of
me was to furnish a coffin, and a negro
named Sheppard would see that the f
morpse was buried. I 'started to tele- 5

PROSPERITY, S. C., May 15.-Dr.
G. Y. Hunter and Miss Carrie, only
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. G. De
Walt, were married at the residence
of Rev. Z. W. Bedenbaugh on last
A match game of base ball was
played here last Wednesday between
the College team, of Newberry College,
and a team bere. The result was a vic
tory for Prosperity. The writer was not
present, but judging from the score,
which was 26 to 27, tbe playing on both
sides was especially bad.
Prof. E. S. Joynes, of the South Caro
lina College will deliver the annual
address before Prosperity High School
on the night of June 6th.
The officers of the Prosperity Rifles -
have been duly commissioned by the 4
Governor and as soon as the company I
receives their guns and other military
paraphernalia they'will be ready to put
down an insurrection, or to meet any
other emergency. Long live the Rifles. t
The seasons are remarkably fine. (
The stands of cotton were never better, C
and the tender weed looks healthy and :
vigorous. Corn also is ju,4t booming.
A trip through the Dutch Fork in Lex
ington last week, and into Edgefield
yesterday convinces me that the wheat
and oat crop is not injured to the extent C
by cold as was at first supposed. On 0
the way from here to Kempson's Ferry, .
through the "stone hills." I consider the
wheat and oat crop fair, if not good.
Of course there are some exceptions,
but as a rule, the crop of both t6ese
cereals is fair in the "stone hills." They
are not so good ii Lexington, yet not
so bad as once regarded.
A Hebrew named Lisebes, has
opened up a stock of dry goods and
gents' furnishing goods next door to
Kohn & Birge. We wish him all the
success he deserves, but if he survives
Prosperity's low prices, he will be the
first of the tribe of Judah who has ac
complished this remarkable feat. A
number of his people have made a sim
ilar effort, but most ingloriously failed.
The price of goods in Piosperity will
starve any Jew. Look out brother
Lisches, I greatly fear that you will not
be happy aud serene very long.

Mr. Editor, we have found but litt9e
time for picking up chips for the past :
The health of our section is very
good, with the exception of the goose
neck fever, which has broken out in
Good seasons, and vegetation is be
gin nini to spread herself.
Mr. M. L. Strauss will go to Orange
burg this week to look after the inter
ests of his plantation.
There wiil be communion services
at Cannon Creek A. R. P. Church on
Sunday next, with preparatory services
on Saturday previous.
Our first mess of Irish potatoes came
last week. Beaus are just in sight;
blackberries not far off. Cabbage,
okra, tomatoes and roasting-ears are
right along behind. Now don't you
see what a hard matter it would be to
starve out an old clodhopper at, this l
season of the year? I
The farmers are moving right alopg
with their work. The old corn is all (
worked out in apple pie order, and cot- *
ton hoeing is~now on the get up and I
Mr. Editor, we don't know just ex
actly how to define our writing this
week, as we have miissed getting-our<
last week's mail. So E suppose we had
better let politics alone this time, as
there is some danger of getting too far
ahead--or too far bahind.
We hear of somec whooping cough
scattered around among the children.
Miss Mary Sligh and Miss Katie
Sloan, of Slighs, were visiting in this
section on Saturday night and Sunday
