EINNlS INTElIESTVINULY TOLD BY
A SPEOKAL CO1tIESPONDENT.
Newberry, S. C., May 9, 1898.
By the courtesy of Capt. F. W. Hig
,ins, the cilicient Superintendent of
Education of Newborry County, your
O)rrespondent had the pleasure of at
tending the closing exercises of St.
Luke's Academy, Saturday the 7th in
stant. Starting from Newberry at
10.30 we covered the 12 miles in less
than 2 hours going via Prosperity, St.
Luke's Academy being 4 miles below
Prosperity. We passed the famous old
Stony Battery site. This used to be
the ol! muster ground before the war,
and kquite a number of interesting
stories have been told of this famous
old place both during the Revolution
and nullifleation days. It is still fa
mous as a stumping ground of the can
didates for the various state and county
ofylees and Capt. Higgins tells me that
the candidates here face possibly the
largest audiences of any place in the
county,-and the votes of the sturdy
youmanry of the Stony Battery section
are eagorly sought after by all candi
dates. The Captain told me of some
amusing Incidents in his experience
when he made his first canvass through
this section, when he was an entire
stranger to the people. One of which
was when he was passing down the
road he came to a field of corn where
fodder pulling was going on. He
stopped, hitched his horse, pulled off
his coat, jumped ovnr the fence and
waded into that field of corn and began
pulling fodder without asking anyono's
Permission or letting hinelf be knowi..
Being an expert at this b'usiness he far
outstripped the other pullers who
watched him in open-eyed astonish
mont. They asked "Stranger who are
you?". le told them "Oh, just one of
the boys, you will know me some of
these times," and got in his buggy and
drove on. Not long afterwards the
campaign meeting took place at Stony
Battery. When he was introduced and
arose, a man way over in the crowd
yelled out, "Say boys that is the little
fellow who did the fodder pulling, and
I'll be gol darned if I ain't going to
vote for him," and the boys in that
seot.ion just piled in the votes for him
whed the time caine.
When we arrived at St. Luke's I was
utterly astonished at the number of
v.hicles. The woods seemed to be full
of them, and I could very readily
understand that a place that could get
.togother such a crowd as that at the
closing.exercises of a school would be
an attractive place for the stump
speaker. It, reminded me very forcibly
of the old timo camp meeting crowd
that used to gather at the camp ground
in this county, and by the way, I no
ticed in returning by the Kilgore road
for the first time in 12 years that the old
f4miliur camp ground has undergone
quite a change. The beautiful grove
bf oaks and pines, under which' thous
ands of Newberrians have spread their
picnic cloths and enjoyed such delica
cies as. only the ladies of Newberry
County know so well how -to prepare.
The 01(1 harbor, with its hundreds of
plank seats, and heavy carpeting of
new mown hay, where the people gath
ered by the t.housand .to listen to the
preachers 3 times a day. Trho old fa
miliar sites for the temporary family
tents, are all things of the p)ast, and
the beautiful woods have been felled to
the ground. and the plant wvith the
fleey plumage standA in their stead.
King cotton has won another victory
and captured this sacred territory unto
Itself. It makes one feel sad and some
.what dlisappoited to pass over thes
scenes of his childhood and find that 15
y'ears have wrought such great changes,
that the pic~ture in his mind's eye while
approach ing is completely destroyed.
Trhe exercises of St. Luke's Academy
which school has been in charge of
Prof. A. E. P. Bocdcnbaugh, assisted by
Miss Lillian Luther (wvho have shown
by their work that the school was in
good hands,) openIed with prayer by
the Rev. 0. S. Beard in at 10.30 after a
photograph of the school had been
taken. .There are 87? scholars enrolled
in t.his thriving school, quite a large
numlier of whom took part in the closing
exercises, which consisted of addresses,
orations, dialogues, recitations, and
The opening address was gotten up
in a very catchy manner. The young
man. who delivered It camne upon the
stage, sup)posed to be in the woods, rc
hears.ing his speech for thme morrow.
Ii e was (discovered by two schoolmates
w ho gumied him and wa'nted to knew
whsere the crowd was to whom ho was
sp)eakcing. They then offered him ad
vice about, how to deliver his speech,
and as a consequence when he returned
to deliver the speech he got it .glori
ously confused. The n'ext picce ou the
programme wvas Merry i.ay by 20 olil
dIron of this session. Miss Essie May
Moor.e was the pretty little queen of the
occasion. The following char'acters
wvore represented by the children Fun
an1i Frolic, Jolliti, Duty, Pubility,
Modesty, Pride, Vanity Beauty, News
boy, Boot Black. The May party con
sisted of two parts. The secoud part
consisted of the flowers of May, the
girls bearing different varieties of
flowers with appropriato words.
An oration "Ideals" by Mr. Willie
Budenbaugh wao well rendered. This
was followed by a song by a large class.
A pretty little tableau "Innocence" was
then presented, Little Mattio Feilers
was slumbering in a air.
The thrilling recitation "Asleep at.
tho Switch" was rendered by M iss Ellie
Hawkins. The motion song by the lit
tie girls was very pretty. The four
points of the compass was presented
forming the word "news," Sula Hipp,
north; Lizzue Hawkins, east; Kate
Whitnan, West; Miinlie Boozer, south.
A dialogue, "Presbytorian Maid," by
Mr. Morris Hawkins and Aiss Mary
Minick, with a big argument on preor
dination was well received.
"Which flower would you rather be?"
Each flower represented by girls in the
piece. Hard to decide, all pretty. A
negro dialogue brought chees. "Little
girl's best friend," by Olic Aorris,
showing that the one who walted upon
her in sickness and need was her best,
friend. This was followed by "Little
boy's best friend" by Ho1po Morris, who
decided that ho was his own best friend
as he had to look out for no one and he
hung on to his orange. A piretty tab
leau wits the pi-esented, v'ery appropri
ate to these turbulent times, "Young
soldier dreaming of home. The sol
dier in blue with rillo and sword was
reclining upon his blanket wyhile old
glory stood hard by. A young lady
concealed gave voice to his dream in
song. It was very pretty and one could
not help thinking of Our.' soldier boys so
recently left home and wonder how
many of them were already thinking
and dreaming of home and mother.
This was followed by Cuba Libre, re
cited by Aliss INlollie Whitman, whose
closing w,-ds declared that Cuba shall
be free. 'lhen caum the song of the
flying squadron. Wherc the battic is
raging the fiercest they'll be there.
At 12.30 dinner was announced and
the crowd lost no time in surrounding
'the table, 150 feet long, literally groanl
ing under its weight, of overy immag
inable varioty of nice thintgs to eat.
Though tho crowd was large and seem
ingly hungry there was plenty left and
the table did not have the usual ap
pearance of having been swept by a
cyclone when all had finished. The
good ladies of this section certainly
know how to preparo for a pienic.
Exercises Wer continued at 1.30 with
song by tho young peopl, seven of the
pupils of tho second year. Then came
recitation, Charmed life, by Miss Mary
RCnick. Oration by Mauric0.Hopkins
ver-y good. Song, Red white and blue
wi'th tableau, soldier waving old glory
to music. Twinkle little star by little
Bessie Nichols. "Awful" by Clifford
Boozer, recounting the many awful
things of life in an awful funny manner
brought down the house. Lover's part
ing by Willie ledenhaugh and Aliss
Molli Whittiman was very natural and
brought, a smile from many an old
stager who had been there. it is
mnighty hard for a fellow to tear him
self away From his best girl, even though
the wee sma' hours heyant t.he twal
admonish the lover to begone.
T1he wounded soldier waiting on the
battle field.by Miss Ola Sehumtpert, aind
the dying sold1ier' or somebody's dari
ling by Miss IEssie Alooni were both
good. Four lit.t-le rosebuds by foiur lit.

(Nows and Courier.)
Washington, May 9.-The Su.
preme Court today handed down its
decision in the case of Vance, Bahr
ot al against the W. A. Vandorcook
Company, appoaled froim the Circuit
Court of South Carolina, and the
otect of that decision is that tho
validity of the di.sponiary law in its
vitc.1 parts is sustittned. The dec:
sion places the South Carolina law
clearly wi(hin the police powers of
the State. The right of the State to
forbid the sale of liquors in the
original packages the Court holds to
be clear, and it regards the dispen.
sary law as moroly voicing that right.
The opinion of the Court was de
livered by Justice White. It affirms
part of the decision of the Court
bolow and reverses part. Chief Jus
tico Fuller and Justice Shiras and
McKonna dissented as to the portion
of the opinion reversing any part of
the opinion of the Court bolow, but,
the other members of the Court
agreed with Justico White.
In his opinion J-tieo White re
views at some length the decision of
the Court in the cases of Scott,
against Donald mid explains that in
neither case was the question raised
whether the Stato could, without
violating the Constitution, confer
upon cortain 61i1cors and agents the
solo powor to buy all liquors which
wero to b sold in the State, rnd
allowing no other liquor to be sold.
Ho explained that the present law,
while similar in general scope to that
passed upon in the foiinor decisions,
was different in many particulars,
the clauses which had been found
under those former decisions to op
orate as discriminating against cit
izens of other States having been
eliminated. Justice White set out
the three grounds upon which the
constitutionality of the law is denied
by the decision of Judge Simonton,
and pointed out that two of these go
to the very root of the law itself,
while the third is narrower in its
purport, only assailing as .ttconsti
tutional the p)art icubir restrict ions
which the State puts upon the rights
of persons of another State to ship
to South Carolina, and of residoents
of that State to receive liquor for
their own use.
Upon this latter feature of the
ease Judge Simonton is uiphold(. The
Court is unanimous ini allirming his
decision. But on the other two
p)oints, which go iat the very iroot of
the law, Judge Sinmonton is iroversed
and the law is up)hold.
The language of Justice White in
summing up the Court's decision is
"It follows from the foregoing that
the decr3e below rendered wvas wvell
founded in so far as it restrained the
defendants from seizing the prop
erty shipped into the State of South
Carolina on the ordlers of such resi
dents for their ownr use, because said
shipments had not been mad(o in
compliance wvith the regulations of
the law of South Carolina. But it
further followvs that the diecree holowv
was wrong in so far as it rest rainetd
tihe Stateof'icors from levying upon
the prop)erty of the comiplainanit for
the puirposo of being stored therein
in originaul packages and from inter.
fering with such sales. These con
clusions require thant thle judgment
below be alirmed in part and re
vetrsod in part. This renders it
neocersary to remand the ca1st to the
C< 't below with insi ruictijons to

The effect of t.his dision in that
the inspection provision of the law
ii tantamount to a denial of the
right of inter State commerce and
thorefore antagonistic to the Consti
Lution of the United State, while in
all other essontial respects the law is
held to be valid. The decision of
the Court was widely discussed
Among South Carolinta peoplo here.
Sonator Tillnan, in discuvsing it,
"It soomis to i. the dispov. ir
law is decidedly on top. With this
locision the mero question of sup.
pressing blind tigers will not bo very
iillicult. 'The only modification mado
aecessary by this decision is as to
the requiremet for the analysis and
inspection of liquor imported for
privato use, and it will not bo very
liflicult to imet this. I believe this
lecision of the Court means that the
puestion 's set tlod for all time, so

Sonator McLaurin said: "This do
cision takes the matter out of the
Courts and leaves its sottlement, to
the people. It means that the dis
posary law is a fixture, and ' ill
never be changod unless there is a
change in sontiment of the people,
and that is reflected through State
legislation. The decision puts the
vital features.of the dispensary law
nocessary to its enforcement within
the police powers of the State. It is
a very important decision, and doubt
less will load to experimeuts of the
sano nature a1s tho South Carolina
dispensary in other States. I th ink,"
he added, ''that the decision will
have a very marked effect on the
campaign in South Carolhna. I reo
gard it as favorable to the ro.elec
