A Great Day for Our Florida Namesake
What Two Newberrians are Doing
in the Land of Flowers.
[From the Ocala Banner.]
Wednesday quite a respectable delegi
tion of Ocalians in numtrs, headed b
the 6Towering Pioe" of Lady Lab
and Ocala, Samuel W. Teague, took
special train for Newberry, Alacho
county, to assist those good people I
officially celebrate its birth aid pro
perous commercial career.
That portion of Alachua count,
through which the new Plant shoj
cut passes, between Archer and Higi
Springs is a new country, sparcely sel
tied, and until pbosphate, was disco,
ered and the road built, it was entirel
given over to the cow men.
Within the past six months, Nev
berry, from a pine forest, has grow
into the most prosperous village i
west Alachua. Six months ago it ha
no existence on the map, now it boasi
of three large stores, doing the mo
prosperous trade of any mercantil
houses in the country, two hotels,
number of residences, lumber on tt
ground for more houses,- the finest d<
pot on the Plant short cut road an
tributary to it the trade of sixtee
phosphate mines.... with a total of 6!
miners, which makes it the most In
potantoutputof phosphates fornumbi
of persons at work and tons mined <

With these facts before one it is nc
difficult to account for Newberry
prosperity and phenomenal growti
So important has Newberry become i
a commercial po.tat and the magnitud
of the mining operations around it tht
very sanguine persons predict in a fe
years it will become the compierch

be reminded of the fact that no portio

It is pleasant to reflect that this in

Most of our readers remember tL
fact that the Teagues are South Can
linians by birth and the place of thei
nativity Newberry, and with a laudi
ble local pride they gave to their ne
town the name of their birthplace an
intended that the name of the Dostoffic

that Senator Call has an especial Iikiri
for the name of Newberry, having si

old Palmetto State many years ago.
We had almost forgotten to mentic
the wonderful and phenomenal siul
and grottoes in and around New beri
and the fact that the nearest river1
that section is the Wacasassa.
It is not difficult to note why New
berry's live merchants enjoy so pro

- Arctic Explorers Who Will Investigato
Their Magnetic Conntction.
Dr. M. A. Veeder of Lyons, N. Y.
long a student of magnetic phenomena
- has induced three important aretic ex
y peditious-those of Lieut. Peary, Dr
e .Nansen, and Jackson and Harnswortl
a -to make special observations of th(
a aurora borealis in the far north. Alber
o B. Armitage of the Jackson and Harus
j. worth expedition will also wake recort
of magnetic observations during a pro
longed stay in Franz Josef Land. Dr
-t Veeder has set in motion not only thesi
concerted plans of observation, but ha.
received the records of observationi
made by correspondeuts in nearly al
v parts of the civilized globe. Record,
have been obtained from the steppes o
Siberia, from Alaska, Greenland, Ice
a land, Hudson Bay, Tasmania, Nem
u Zealand, and from every land when
d the aurora is known, while words -o
s interest and encouragement have comi
t from regions where the aurora is sel
e dom if ever seen.
a Dr. Veeder expects from this collee
e tion of records a mass of systematizec
)_ information that will be of great valut
d to astronomy and to physics in gen
n eral, and that may reduce the princi
5 ples that lie behind the business o
- Weather Prophet Dunn to an exaci
r science. Some of the results thus fai
f obtained have been described in i
series of articles issued by the Roches

s Veeder belongs, and before which hi
has set forth his theory as to magnetic
e Dr. Veeder finds that auroral dis
.t plays and thunder storms have an im
v portant relation to the spots on th<
i sun. The auroral displays occur at in
tervals of about twenty-seven and i
g quarter days. This corresponds to th4
-s time of the rotation of the sun upon iti
r axis as viewed from the earth, whict
y is, of course, advanced in its orbit it
the same direction as that in whieh tho
o- sun turns upon its axis. If the surfac(
I of the sun be imagined as divided int<
t twenty-seven parts like the sections o:
u an orange, it is possible, says Dr. Vee
r der, to learn from records long anc
, carefully kept just where each of thes
v sections was stationed with relation t<
d the earth on any given date. Th
number and size of the spots in each ol
these sections at given dates are also t
c be learned from the records. In thi,
, way it has been found that such sec

*r many and persistent spots are invaria
d bly just coming into view by rotatior
whenever there is an aurora. The au
d rora, however, is not invariably seer

Veeder hopes to prove, perhaps Mr

DR. POPES WITHDRAWAL.
He Writes a Letter Setting Forth the Sitna
tion and His Reason for not Running.
LSpecial to -News and Courier.]
COLUMBIA, August 23.--The politic il
wheel of fortune has taken vnother
turn. Dr. Sampson Pope has quit the'
game. The "Ioo-loo" gamie was too
much for him. He.beld on to the cards
as long as he thought he would have a
fair showing, but he evidently has
come to the conclusion that there is no
use to fight to a finish, especially
against a "loo-loo" hand. It has been
worked once. Dr. Pope has quit the
race and will not go into the general
election or anything else. So this leaves
the nominee in the field, M1r. John
Gary Evans, with the Reform backing.
Noone, not even the Reformers, have
anything against Dr. Pope, and they
feel that he has made a high-toned
fight with big odds against him.
Dr. Pope has given the press a plain
and straightforward letter. He has a
word or two to say about the 'ring."
It reads as follows:
To the Democratic Voter2 of South
I am in receipt of numerous letters
from different counties in this State
notifying me that hundreds of Re
formers desire to vote for me but that
no ticket has been gotten out. The
truth is the machinery of the Reform
movement is in the hands "of the
ring" and voters are so much afraid of
the party lash that whilst they are
willing and anxious to vote for me
they are afraid to allow their names to
appear on a ticket. This is a deplora
ble state of affairs, and only goes to
show how despotically they are ruled.
Under this state of things it will be
impossible for me to' get a ticket in the
majority of the counties and therefore
it will be foolish for me to longer con
tinue in the race for Governor. I have
this day withdrawn my pledge from
the State Executive Committee and
take this opportunity to say that I will
not be a candidate at the primary.
Forty thousand Reformers and 32.000
Conservatives are virtually disfran
chised and 14,000 ringsters dictate who
shall hold the office.
I saw the danger of this, and whed
the Conservatives, in a desire so per
petuate white supremacy in this State,
and to conciliate the majority with a
view to peace, proposed that if they
were allowed to cast their vote for one
of the four Reformers running, that
they would be satisfied. I thought it
a fair and honorable proposition and
one which did them great credit and
advocated its acceptance. Their offer
was refused at the dictation of a few
blind leaders who were puffed up with I
their importance without regard to the i
general welfare of the whole people.
The Conservatives, I must say, have 1
shown in this, and in gracefully sub
mitting since 1890 to the rule of the
majority, a spirit worthy of emulation.
Their treatment has been simply out

primary on the 28th instant, and thus
put your seal of condemnation upon
the ring methods which have been
employed. Cut off that portion of the
ticket embracing the names of the
delegates or run your pen through
their names. You have a right to do
this and only vote for members of the

rhe Bouknight Suit Before a Special
[The State, 18th instant.]
Capt. W. K. Bachman, as special
referee, appointed by Judge Simonton
to take testimony and hear arguments
in the case of J. H. Bouknight of
Edgefield, against the Southern Rail
way Company, bad an interesting
bearing in his office yesterday.
Mr. Bouknight claims that the
southern Railway Company are liable
ror a claim of $10,000 for damages
which he recovered against the C. C.
S A. Railroad Company, when it was
inder the management of the R. & D.
'It will be remembered that when the
Dharlotte, Columbia and Augusta
Railroad was sold in July, before any
Ads for it were made Lawyer Verdery
>f Augusta gave notice of a claim of
U10,000 for damages which Mr. J. H.
Houknight held against the road, and
itated that the purchaser of the road
would be held liable for the claim. The
outhern bought the road in and Mr.
Verdery as attorney for Mr. Bouknigbt
,laims that the Southern Railway
Dompany is liable for that amount.
It seems that Mr. Bouknght bad
me of his feet cut off in Augusta in
;ovember, 1891, by one of the trains of
he Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta
Railway Company. He sued the com
yany for $25,000 damages and was
warded $13,000, which Judge Witber
ipoon refused to allow, and ordered a
3ew trial unless the plaintiff would re
nit all above $10,000. This the plaintiff
greed to do, and the Supreme Court,
u a decision filed July 3d, sustained
,he ruling of Judge Witherspoon, and
,he verdict of $10,000.
Under the notice mentioned above,
Ar. Bougnight claimed this amount
o be due him from the Southern Rail
vay Company, as purchasers of the
barlotte, Columbia and Augusta Rail
-oad, alleging that his claim is a prior
ien on that road to the judgment
nder which the road was sold to the
outhern Railway. Mr. B. L. Abney
Lud the Hon. H. Crawford, of Chicago,
were heard for the Southern Railway,
md Mr. Verdery for Mr. Bouknight.
'apt. Bachman, under section 1528, of
he General Statutes, found for the
>lantiff, and if Judge Simonton con
irms Capt. Bacbman's report, the
southern Railway Company will have
.he claim to pay.

Mr. James Cullins' Little Oratorical Gem
which Ought to be Preserved in Scrap
Books as a Picture of this Day
and Time-A Very Wild and
Funny Denunviation of
The county campaign in Lancaster
has been made more lively than usual
this year by the speeches of Mr. James
Cullins, of Belair. candidate for the
House of Representatives. The Lan
caster Review gives a full report of the
speeches at Kershaw on August 16. The
Hoo. Ira B. Jones, the present Speaker,
who is a lawyer and a candidate for re
election to the House, made the first
speech of the day, lauding the Reform
Movement to the skies. The Review
At the close of Mr. Jones' remarks
the chairman introduced Mr. James
Cullitis. Mr. Cullins had his Gatling
gun loaded for lawyers and he poured
hot shot'into 'em "both a gwine and a
comiu'." He kept the crowd roaring
with laughter from beginning to end,
ana when be had consumed his alotted
time the crowd yelled to the chairman
to let him go on, which he did.
Mr. Cullins said: Gentlemen, there
are twenty-seven candidates before you
to-day-all them want your votes, all of
them say they are Reformer@. Yes, and
I reckon if old Dan Chamberlain was
here he would say be was a Reformer
too. I have tried to e a Reformer, but
haven't been one yet-have had too.
many devils to fight.
LAWYERS STARTED THE WAR.
I was not in the civil war-tain't a
case of my wife and the bear with me,
but I had brothers in that war. The
war was gotten up by lawyers in Char
leston and shylocks. It was a poor
man's fight and a rich man's war. I
eame here in 1860, an Irish boy. Dan
Chamberlain put you to the expense
of $50,000 for guns-the mean lawyers
responsible for it. The people shake the
bush and the lawyers get the plum. I
wish I had a crowbar, I would prize
the scales off your eyes, you blame set
of scoundrels-am not running Jones
and Hough. I have not come to kick
up b-l, but this is a free white man's
country, and if we ain't got sense to
vote we ought to fail. I'll fight any
man here after the meeting. The far
mers had to whip the negroes and.then
the lawyers got the plum. Tillman
came out in 1886 and said fight'em.
Now about the Alliance, it has to
keep the lawyers and mercbants out
because they are too smart. A voice in
the crowd: "What about Cleveland
and the bond issue?" Cullins: "He
ought to be beat over the head with a
dead cat, the old Mugwump."
THERE HAS BEEN NO REFORM.
Farmers can't vote an independent
ticket-the bootblacks are pulling at
you all the time. I have been fighting
the lawyers ever since 1868. Fought
Chamberlain anrl his crowd in '76. Once
down yonder -reacher Pickett was
with us-we cA,.. ired seventy of 'em.
Major Hamilton, of Chester, said I was
the d-ndest man he ever saw. I belong
to the church and try to do my duty to.
God and man. I will fight the lawyers
till the wool pulls off.
I have b-en a Reformer, but there
has been no reform. All of you area
set of infernal fools. You need the
scale; knocked off your eyes with a
crowbar. They talk about that reduc
tion bill! Why, it was killed by amend
mer t-it looks like a nigger bill. Jones
talks about paregoric, but its weak

Flcairn Islanders in Hard Luck.

SAMOA, July 14.-The Piteairn Is
landers are having bad times nowadays.
Eighteen months ago a party of Amier
ican Seventh Day Adventists exploited
the Society and Paumutu groups, and
in the schooner, the Pitcairn, visited
the lonely little island and converted
the people from "hard-cased Chris
tianity" into Seventh Day Adventism.
The mission schooner brought dysen
tery, diptheria, measles, and influenza;
and now comes the news that many of
the miserable survivors (aboutseventy)
have been attacked with malignant

KILLED BY A CONSTRICTOR.
A Georgia Boy Crushed to Death By a
MACO, Ga., Aug. 17.-Tobe Wesley
of Twiggs county came to Macon to
day to buy a coffin for his seven-year
old son, who was crushed to deat b by
a huge snake late Thursday after
The boy had gone to the field with
his father, and while his father was at
work wandered off a short distance and
climbed a muscadine vine as was his
habit. On being unable to find the boy
when he had finished his work about
sun-down, the father went to the house
expecting to find him there, but was
informed by his wife that the boy had
not been home since he left the house
with his father. Feeling no tneasiness
Wesley, knowing the habit of his boy,
went back to the field, which was on
the edge of a dense swamp bordered
with muscadine vines, and began
searching the vines where he had last
seen the boy. By looking up in the
vines he was not long in finding him,
but when he called the boy failed to
answer. After calling two or three
times and receiving no answer the
father shook the vine, and to his horror
saw what he had supposed to be one of
the branehes of the vine that was sup
porting his son, begin to uncoil.
Realizing that his son was in the coil
of a huge snake Wesley stood rooted to
the spot, and before he could recover
his senses the snake completely un
coiled and the boy fell to the ground,
a distance of nine or ten feet. Wesley
picked the child up and ran from under
the vines to the clearing. There his
worst fears were realized. The child
was dead. On being carried to the
house and further examination made,
it was found that the child's breast had
been crushed and that its tongue and
eyes were protruding as though it had
been choked to death.
Wesley is of the opinion that the boy
was asleep when the snake coiled about
him and gradually crushed his life out.
Wesley does not know what kind of a
snake it was, as he did not see it after
his son fell.
The Coming Fashion for LadIes.
This is what is commonly conceded
to be the most difficult epoch of the
year in the realms of fashion, for, while
all modes seem to in an undecided
state, yet everybody is most anxious
to lharn what turn the new fashions
will take since all those interested on
this subject must be preparing for the
coming season-the busiest of the year.
In their eagerness to secure novel ideas
many dressmakers cross the ocean, a
still greater number turn their eyes
toward New York, while the majority
are anxiously inquirirg from every
possible quarter in order to obtain the
much desired information. Now it is
undoubtedly true that the surest, most
convenient and practical way of attain
ing this end is to become a subscriber of
a substantial fashion magazine, whose
infomation is reliable and which offers
the greatest variety of subjects. Such
magazine-or rather magazines-are
the well-known McDowell French
Fashion Periodicals-the best anA most
popular of the kind, both in the old
world and in ihis country. "La Mode
de Paris," and "Paris Album of
Fashion," cost $3.50 each per annum,
or 35 cents a copy. "The French Dress
maker" is $3 00 per year, ar 30 cents a
copy. "La Mode," a family journal,
with colored plates, unequalled in price
and artistic merit, costs only $1.50 per
yearoer 15 cents a copy. The three first
mentioned publications offer each $1.00
worth of coupon patterns and "La
Mode" fifty cents worth of the same as
a premium for a yearly subscription.
If you are unable to procure any of
these journals from your newadealer
do not .take any substitute from him
but apply by mail to Messrs. A. Mc
Dowell & Co., 4 West 14th Street, New
Dots from St. Phimips.
A good deal of sickness is the general
O.ur protracted meeting begins next
The "efa of good feeling" is nearly
over-cotton is beginning to open.
Big meeting at Bethlehem, Enoree
and Lebanon last Sunday, and lots of
us attended each meeting.
Great catamounts! The whooping
cough winks defiantly at us from every
point of the compass, but of one thing
we are certain, we are not going to
tinker with it; therefore if it takes us
we are not very apt to take it, it will
have to do so on the "fly."
A young voter has pitched his tent
in this neigh borhood. Welcome friend.
Learning of the picnic at Pomaria on
the 16th we gathered ourself together
on that morning and journeyed thitber
ward and arrived in due time to see the
boys drill-and considering the few
months that they have been organized
they can drill too. Dancing, an after
noon drill and a match game of base
ball completed the exercises of the day
and then we jouirneyed homeward.
When we think of what might have
been the result we cannot help but put
on a serious kind of look. But when
we think of how it really did turn out
it is quiteamusing. Some little sisters
-though not so very little mind-took
their baby sister to ride in the baby
carriage with a bright colored shade
attached. Merriiy up the road they go.
But listen! the sound of buggy wheels
and then a top buggy in which is seated
one of our prominent men moves upon
the stage and then the play begins. The
mule being kind of skittish we presume
and seeing the baby carriage takes
fright and in the middle of a wink he
faces to the right and goes double
quicking to the rear through our neigh
bor's cornfield like as if the whole con
cern had been shot out of a gun-at
astonishing rate of speed to be sure.
After turning two rows of corn in
side-out the party~gradually made to a
walk, got into the road and went back
the way they had come which shows
that while the mule was frightened the
man must have been doubly frightened,
--first, at the baby carriage and second
at the extraordinary proceedings of the
mule. JOSH TRUMP.

Northern Republican newspapers
that are now running a side show called

t heir spleen because I made a few re
marks they do not like. 'They send
me a sample copy with the spleen
marked all round so that I may not fail

"Joe Howard will write just what he is

But it is a waste of time to make any
more war upon the A. P. As.-the dog
is dead. Thousands who were drawn
in are drawing out all over the North,
and within a year you wiH hardly find
a man who ever belonged to it. Republi
can schemers have got hold of the order
everywhere, and its true character has
cropped out early. It won't last as long
as the Alliance and ought not, for the
Alliance had good intentions in its in
fancy, and but for its going into politics
would have done a great deal of good.
It was smothered by demagogues. -And
now comes the one-third party with
Ocala ana Omaha platforms that de
mand the railway and telegraph and a
sub-treasury that will build a pumpkin
barn in every naborhood. It is not
even a sideshow to any party, but is a
wood's colt-a mule colt at that-with
no pride of ancestry. But it can be rid
and goes along'right gently until back
ing time comes. A farmer who joins
the one-third party, expecting to get
something, is like Judge Aldridge's
man who was driving a cow and her
calf home, and they got mixed up with
some other cattle in the road, and the
calf mistook an old steer for its mother
and ran off with him. The feller ran
himself nearly to death trying to sepa
rate them, but he couldn't. So be
stopped and used bad language and
wound up with "Go it you darned little
fool-go it-but you'll find out what's
what when sucking time comes."
The leader of these secret, oath-bound
political organizations are after office or
money, and some few of them get it.
They ride in on the mule and then take
the bridle oft and turn him out to make
his own living. Bishop Haygood,
whom the South honors for hisspotless
integrity of character and his fearless
publication of the truth as he sees it,
says "Liberty dies by the organization
of oath-bound societies. Such oath
bound leagues not only make men
slaves, but they make them children
wards without right to think-slaves
without right to choose. A man is
forced oftentimes to do what he does
not wish to do and is frozen out if he
There is corruption enough and some
to spare in the old parties, but there is
no secrecy-no gags, no grips or oaths.
We know just what they are doing
and can kick and abuse and even de
nounce if we want to, and the force of
public opinion soon has its effect. We
have been abusing the National Dem
ocracy awfully of late, but after all,
there is no other p arty that a Southern
man can go to.. If we really advocate
tariff reform-a tariff~for revenue only
-a tariff that will cheapen the necessa
ries of life, we are obliged to be Demo
crats. The issue is made at last. It is
now protection or no protection. The
infant industries are all grown. Let
them take care of themselves. There
are too many people demanding help
from the government. Bishop Hay
good says: "Too mueh government is
nearly as bad as no government and is
one of the worst hindrances to the
healthy development and happy exist
ence of human' society. Those who
know human nature in its strengthr
and weakness look with deep anxiety
at the tendency of our times to pater
nalism in government. Government
begins to tell us what we may eat and
drink. Government inspects our milk
and kerosene oil and our fertilizers.
Government looks after our drainage
and sanitary condition. We are vac
cinated when government says so.
Doctors are now talking of keeping con
sumptives in a pesthouse, and it may
come to pass that government will take
us in hand when we have a bad cold.
It is not treason to our idolized public
school system to admit that our theory
and practice in educatIon foster pater
nalism. In many schools, so far as
preserving and developing a child's in
dividuality is concerned, it is about as
well to number as to name him. In
some schools the pupils are numbered
just as convicts are."
It is this paternalism that burdens
us with taxes, both State and National.
There is no business economy at Wash
ington. What business man would
build a postoffBee at Rome that is to
cost $75,000, when he can rent a first
rate one for 8600 a year? Who would
pay a postmaster $2,000 a year when he
could get a goa,d one for $1,000? And
it is the same useless extravagance all
over the nation. You vote for my
scheme and I'll vote for yours is th"
bargain at Washington-and so the
money goes. State extravagance is
not much better. There is many a
scheme being planned already to prey
upon our State treasury and more pen
sion bills will be introduced and more
educational facilities asked for. And
all that we poor taxpayers can do is to
abuse our rulers and hold down the
brakes as hard as possible. That is our
right. It was the right of the privates
during the war to complain at their
officers, but they wouldn't let any out
siders do it; so we don't want any ad
vice from the one-third party or the
Ru publicans or the American Protect
ive Association about Democratic fail
ures or Democratic corruption. It is
the only party that the South can trust,
and it we can't reform it from the in
side it can't be done from the out. Se
cession don't pay. Old Father time is
a good doctor. I feel more hopeful of
our party than I did a month ago. All
that a man has to do to keep him a
Democrat is to look at the leaders of
Ithe other parties and read their papers.
But the great Republican party that
feeds and fattens on pensions and pro
tection and patronage and paternalism
and all the other p's is the party to be
fought. The others are side shows and
we have to take them like taking the
measles. They are a sort of vaccina
tion that keeps us from catching the
smallpox and so they do some good In
that way. It is all well enough to'stir
the boys up occasionally-to cry- bear
and se the boys load up their guns
to ring the fire bell in the dead of night
as a training to the firemen. But we
have bad this one-third party about
long enough. The novelty has worn
off and we wi 1 have a funeral before
long and bury it and drop a tear to its
memory. So tote it be.
