THE DISPENSARIES TO OPEN.
Governor Tillman has issued a proc
lamation to open the dispensaries. He
claims that the Supreme Court only
passed upon the law of 1892, and did
not touch upon the Act of 1893. That
being the case it seems very strange
that he should close all dispensaries in
the State. Has one man the right to
say a law that is of force and effective
shall be in operation or suspended at
his own free will? If the law of 1893
was not affected by the decision of the
court, why stop operations under it?
That is assuming a great deal of au
thority. If a Governor can so act in
this matter he can in any other, and
he might take any of our laws and hide
out in the bushes, as he says, and make
them of no force. It seems to be going
very far to assume in advance of what
Justice Gary will hold when he gets
on the bench. Has he indicaed to any
one that he believed the law constitu
All this abuse ofour courts and judges
is one ot the worst features of this new
order of things. We need to inculcate
and instill a respect for law and author
ity. There is a spirit of lawle%sness
abroad and much of it is due to the
cheap buncombe we hear on the stump
whose position should demand of them
a different course. Even if we do not
agree with the conclusions reached by
the highest courts in the country, we
should accept their decisions as the law
of the case and not go ranting around
about their being governed by factional
prejudice. When the judiciary be
comes tainted with partisanship and
men' are rewarded for their factional
service by positions on the bench, or
the people are led to believe such is the
case, their rights and liberties and lives
are endangered and the existence of
our free institutions endangered. We
should do everything in our power to
inculcate a respect and regard for the
powers that be. Otherwise we are
doing an injury to_society and to the
We care very little what is done in
regard to the dispensary. If a majority
of the people think that is the solution
of the liquor problem, well and good.
We will submit. However, we do not
believe it the best way to deal with the
problem. The spy and constabulary
system, which its friends say is the
only way to enforce it, will always be
repulsive toa free and libertylloving peo
ple, and, we believe, will cause blood
shed and an endless amount of trouble.
To start the machinery in operation as
soon as there is a change in the com
plexion of the Supreme Court, presum
ing on what Judge Gary will hold, will
only intensify the matter. The people
have never had an opportunity to say
whether they want the dispensary or
not. It would be better to let the mat
ter rest until the Legislature meets, but
Gov. Tiliman seems to possess all
power and can, and no doubt will, do
as he pleases.
Friday of this week is the day for the
State campaign meeting at Nlewberry.
The meeting will be held in the grove
on Maj. Jones' place in the incorporate
limits of the town. The candidates will
tarry with us for only a short time.
They will arrivelate on Thursday night
and depart in the afternoon of Friday
Our object in calling attention to the
meeting is to urge that all speakers be
gi ven a quiet and peaceable hearing.
We sincerely hope there will be no
howling down business resorted to.
We all remember the meeting at
Helena t wo years ago, and what a for
tunate thing it was that the platform
gave way and possibly averted serious
trouble. Let us hope there will be no
such scene enacted this year. There
is no occasion for it. Let us have a
quiet and peaceable meeting. ,Demon
strations on these occasions' do not
amount to anything. The votes are the
things that count.
We sincerely hope and believe that
there will be decency and decorum -at
the meeting on Friday.
If Gov. Tillman has the right under
the Act of 1893 to open the Dispensa-y,
he had no right to close up the busi
ness. It is a piece of absolute dictator
ship for the executive to say that he
can put a law passed by the Legisla
tore in operation or suspend it accord
ing to his own sweet will. This is said
without reference to the constituition
ality or unconstitutionality of the Act
of 1893. Such proceedings is a bad and
dangerous precedent to establish. We
need to have some respect for the law
ful way of doing things.
And Gen. Richbourg was on the Hae
kell ticket without his knowledge or
consent. But be did not withdraw or
have his name taken off after he knew
the fact. We had always looked upon
Gen. Richbourg as a true and brave
man, and we are sorry he is giving oc
easion to have that opinion reversed.
It is a sad spectacle to see a man for
get his manhood in the desire to gain a
little office. We pi'y rather than con
The Herald and News sincerely
hopes that the men of New berry will
deport themselves like men at the cam
paign meeting next Friday. Let us
c<nvince the world that we can give a
respectful hearing to all the candidates,
whether they talk according to our
way of thinking or not.
It is a very noticeable fact-notice
s.ble by its absence-that in the present
state campaign we hear nothing of
reducing taxation or saving the people
maoney. Is it possible that the candi~
dates cannot promise to reduce taxes.
TIhere seems to have been some real
reform in the matter of making pro
ises on the stump. is there nothing
more to be promised'?
The corn crop is the finest at th,is
season that we have had in years, and if
no destruction overtakes it, the farmer,
who does not make plenty of corn this
year for himself sumd stock is the man
who planted none. The cotton crop) i
also good. The crop having been
made cheap the country would soon be
in a better condition.
Tbos. W. Keitt of Newberry entered
the State canvass on Tuesday at Winus-|
boro for the office of State Superin
tendent of Education. He is amply
competent to discharge the duties of
the office and if elected would fill the
position with credit to himself.
And the Lexington people would
rot let Hon. Cal. Caughman speak.
That was too bad. He had trained 1
them too well. They gave him some
cf his own medicine. A physician
never likes to take his own physic.
The Edgefield meeting came very
near resulting in serious trouble. We 1
are glad it passed off as quietiy as it I
did. This campaign is not much of an t
educational campaign. t
THE DAY OF THE BIG REUNION.
Large Turnout of Old Veterans and their e
Families-Fine Barbecue-The Splen- 1
did Address of Rev. Di. Grier.
Last Saturday was a gala day for
Newberry town and county. It was I
the day for the reunion of the James
D. Nance Camp, U. C. V., at a barbe- C
cue in the Fred Paysinger grove near
Lindsay's bridge on Bush River. Early
in the morning people were passing
through the town on their way to the c
meeting, some stopping in town awhile
to chat with their friends. It was a
social and not a political gathering,
and the badges on so many people,
together with the music of the New
berry Band, lent inspiration to the
scene and aroused enthusiasm and re
vived the sleeping military spirit. It
was a big affair, there being about 1200 s
people present, mostly "surviving vet- E
erans, their wives and children, chil- 2
dren of soldiers who were killed ordied I
during the war, and children of all sol- 1
diers who have died since the war."
The barbecue was good, the crowd
apparently happy, the day auspicious I
and the memories of the past were viv- E
idly recalled. The day was the thirty- I
third anniversary of the first battle of I
Bull Run or Manassas, which, as our
readers are aware, occurred on the 21st
of July, 1861. t
Rev. Dr. W. M. Grier, of Due West, t
was the orator of the day, and grandly -I
did he sustain his reputation. He is 1
popular here, as he is throughout the 9
State, being well known and beloved t
;y everybody, in Church and State. i
Dr. Grier is one of the leading men of t
our day. Below we give a synopsis of E
his admirable speech:
Standing here, in this presence,what t
memories crowd upon me! In a mo- t
ment the dead past is resurrected! a
From its crowded graves, still green
and fragrant, ten thousand foriis E
start into life! To-day we meet I
and call the roll. How many are I
absent, forever absent, from these I
delightful gatherings. In mid-time of I
their days and in the glory of their t
strength they laid themselves on the
altar of their country. But though they I
answer not our call, and though we t
see them not, yet they speak to our I
hearts, and they appeal to us, by all 1
that is sacred and holy, in unselfish de- I
votion to truth, in lofty patriotism, to 1
cherish their memories, vindicate their I
motives, and to care for their depen
dent families. We owe it to them, we I
owe it to ourselves,we owe it to history I
to assert, on all proper occasions, with I
honest, manly sincerity, the- convic
tions which led to sacrifices unparal-1
leled in this century and to declare the
real issues at stake in a conflict so stu
pendous and appalling. Thbere is great<
danger lest, in allowing others to write
our history for us, we permit the truth4
to be perverted and ourselves placed 4
in a false position.
It is surprising how general is the 1
impression that slavery was the sole
issue, that we fought for its perpetuity 4
and extension, while the North for its I
abolition. This is, as we conceive, a
radical mistake. Slavery was the oc- <
casion, but only the occasion of the I
struggle, and the destruction of the I
peculiar institution was an incident,
and only an incident of the progress 1
and end of the war. The Federal Con
gress, after the war had begun, declared
explicitly, that "this war is nsot prose- I
cuted for the purpose of overthrowing
or interfering with the rights of estab- I
lished institutions in the Southern I
States." Could any declaration be I
clearer than that? No, fellow-soldiers, I
while slavery figured prominently inJ
the beginning, progress and termina
tion of our struggle; while it was the
subject of innumerable platform dtcla
rations and resolutions, the core and
marrow of the difficulty, the kernel
and essence of the dispute is to be
found in the antagonistic views and in
terpretations of the very nature and
structure of the government itself. It ]
was a difference that reached to the
fundamental law of the land and struck
at the very heart of the Constitution.
Tbe one party held that this is a gov
ernment by the people as8 a whole, the <
other party held that it was a govern
ment by organized States. Here was a
difference that discussion, concession
and compromise only widened, and yet I
one so vital and practical that it must
Hence we feel that we were contend
ing for principles which are as real, as
rleesent and precious to-day as they
'were in 1860. They were principles of
the government and so long as the
government exists they will live.
Another feature of our struggle was
the capacity for action and( endurance
nthpat of the Southern soldiers.
Th ryof the South was made up of
those whose work was largely indoors;
of clerks and professional men, and
farmers whose lands were cultivated
by slaves In the wars of modern times
it would be difficult to find an army
consisting so largely of gentlemen.
'Take, for example, the Third Regiment
from this county, sod otber regi
ments. Read over their muster rolls;
trace back to their homes the men
whose names you find there; acquaint
yourself with their early life and you
will find the fullest confirmation of
what I am saying.
Another lesson of our struggle and
defeat is that, though stripped of our
property, we .still have a noble inheri
tance. Who does not remember the
dark days of '&->? There was a tempo
rary paralysis of- an entire agricultural
mierest. Every wheel in the great ma
chinery stopped. There was a com
plete disorganization of our whole labor
system. Federal garrisons ruled every
town and city. Every court of justice
was practically dissolved.
But how soon the clouds broke away!
A magnificent opportunity was offered
to evoke all the native force, the latent
energy and industrial tact of the South.
That opportunity was promptly em
braced and heroically improved. To
day the world justly accords to the
South wonderful recuperative power.
The material growth and prosperity of
the South is a bright page in her his
Let us not forget that we have an in
heritanceof national glory. This coun
try has a glory. We have a share in it
by every right of purchase and inheri
tance. We are countrymen not only
of WVashington and Jeffersomn, but also
of Webster and Everett. W hile t here
are diversities of habits and social eus
torm, is it not a diversity of correspou
dence rather than opposition? it is a
diversity in which there is always a
basis for the truest unity. Just as we
bury our animosities though not our
principles; as we forget our enmities
though not our heroes, just to that ex
tent may we hope for that real union
which despises all formal resolutions
and F'ourt h-of-J uly utterances.
Of onie thi'ng we mzay be sure. The
metn of other times will sift the right

OPENING TBE DISPENSAJMIES.
7he Law of 1893 Declared to Be of Force
and the State Will Begin the Liquor
Business Again on August 1st.
[From The Herald and News Extra, 23d.]
COLUMBrA, S. C., July 23-4 P. M.
outh Carolina is all astir to-day. Gov
rnor Tillman yesterday announced
bat he would to-day issue an official
)roclamation declaring that on August
st the dispensary would be reopened,
nd that the reinforcement of the sus
ended 1893 law, which it is generally
onceded was declared unconstitutional
y the State Supreme Court; that the
aw would be enforced mcre rigidly
han ever, and that ten days' time will
e given to the liquor men to close
heir business and get out of business.
This announcement created a great
ensation all over the State this morn
Gov. Tillman did not come to the
?,xecutive office until noon. In the
eantime there was general activity
,bout the big.State gin mill, and many
f the old constables were gathered
Promptly on reaching the Executive
hamber Governor Tillman began the
lictation of his proclamation, which
eads as follows:
STArE OF SOUTH CAROLINA,
WHEREAS, under provisions of an
et "to prohibit the manufacture and
ale of intoxicating liquors as a bever
ge within this State, except as herein
rovided," approved December 24,
892, the State assumed control of the
egal liquor traffic in South Carolina,
ommencing July 1st, 1893; and,where
s, the said policy and purpose of the
itate to permit the sale of liquor by
nd through the State's officers only,
ras reaffirmed and an act approved
)ecember 23, 1893, entitled "An act to
leclare the law in reference to and fur
her regulate the use,sale, consumption,
ransportation and disposition of alcoho
ic liquids or liquors within the State of
outh Carolina and to police the same,"
nd whereas, the Supreme Court of the
tate of South Carolina, by a decision
'endered the 19th April, 1894, declared
be first act above mentioned uncon
titutional except one small proviso of
>ne section, the Executive in obedience
o what he conceived to be the will of
he Court, closed all the dispensaries
Lnd discharged the constabulary.
In a subsequent decision the court
till ignoring the act of 1893 above
nentioned, construed its decision to
nean "there can be no legal sale of
iquor by license," but has seemingly on
>urpose omitted tg mention jr construe
he act of 1893.
And, whereas, the State of South
arolina acting in good faith through
he executive branch of the govern
nent, and relying upon the decision of
he Supreme Court in the case of
loover vs. the Town Council of Ches
er, in which it was declared that the
ct of 1892 "was in effect, an act to regu
ate tLe sale of spirituous liquors, the
>ower to do which is universally recog
ized," has invested large sums of
noney in liquors for sale under pro
risions of the two acts mentioned, and,
hereas,tbis liquor is now being held at
leavy expense while the State is flood
d with contraband whiskey told with
ut authority of law:
Now, therefore, I, B. R. Tillman, Gov
rnor of theState of SouthCarolina,in ex
rise of my discretion as Executive, do
sue this my proclamation and declare
at the said Supreme Court, having
djorned without in any wise giving
xpression in regard to the Act of 1893,
be said Act is of full force and effect and
vill be enforced in accordance with my
>ath of office until the court shall have
>assed upon the same, or until the Leg
slature shall have repealed it, and the
:ounty dispensers in the various coun
ies will open their dispensaries on
Wednesday, August 1st. All persons
uterested, including public carriers,
Xre notified that importation of liquors
ill be at the risk of seizure and prose
:ution, and all contraband liquors
ound in the bordei-s of the State will
e seized and confiscated according to
n Testimony whereof, I have here
unto set my hand and caused the
great seal of the State to be affixed
at Columbia, this twenty-third day
of July, A. D. 1894, and in the one
hundred and nineteenth year of the
Independence of the United States

order to prepare for the celebration,
will not meet again until Tuesday, the

line of Fall and Winter Samples,
and while there I found the de
partment men in the midst of
making their usual Semi-annual
Inventory of the Stock, and they
-losed meout some Washable Four
in Hands, Colored Bows and Over
hirts that I can sell at prices un
heard of before.
I also bought quite a number of
new things in Underwear, Collars,
Belts, Suspenders,Umbrellas, etc.,
and want you to come and see
what a change we have made in
the prices of goods since I opened
my line of Men's Furnishing
My plan is to buy often and
and sell a little in advance of
wholesale prices, give the
trade the best goods that can
be bought at the price, and in
this way secure your confi
dence and get your business
for goods in this line.
I will be off on my regular Fall

in'my absence Mr. J. W. Coppock
