.The Live Stock show, like the

in scope, more extensive in the num?

greater success, than asyone anticipat?

bility for thereto cb so, and the cattle

. this afternoon.*..
The display of fine horses, in erery
cla.s, was magnificent; the exhibit
of colts; mules and: home raised mule
colts was so^laige xand the quality
so superior that the fact was, carried
home to the iatejl^ence of thethought
ful men present, with the greatest
possible forcer that this should be a
stock raising cc?atry,'.that the people
cf Sumter and adjacent. counties
should not GE% raise-ali ci the horses
and mules they seed for their own
use? bot shouhlsapp ly other sections of
the country instead of importing
thousands of horses and mules an?
It was from first to last a magnifi?
cent display of fine horses' the writer

During his visit Governor Heyward
was asked by the News and Courier cor?
respondent for an expression about the
carnival and said :
. "This Festival in Sumter is the
illustration of the civic prido of a
South Carolina city. It is the living
evidence of a strong, prosperous and
patriotic community confident of the
strength of its united manhood, and
the glorious resources of the couutry
which surrounds it. To be among the
thronging thousands of Carolina men
and women here, enjoying the gen?
erous, the overflowing hospitality cf
this San tee city, is to sound to its
depths the full"and splendid meaning
of the words 'South Carolina.' Not
merely as your governor, but as a citi
zen? would I deserve commiseration
did I not rejoice in this magnificent
outpouring and commingling of the
people of Sumter City, of Sumter
County, of all the neighboring coun?
ties, and of all commnnnitiea in the
State, with no thought of class dis?
tinction or sectional division. The
Festival is the convincing proof of
good feeling among my people and the

The case of the State vs. Lewis
Henig was heard before Magistrate H.
Harby, Jr., Saturday at noon. The
indictment was for obtaining goods
under false pretences. Henig purchas?
ed whips from the Southern Express
Company, which were consigned, C.
O. D., to Rudolph Brothers. As the
latter had gone to Timmonsville, be?
cause of a supposed city ordinance pro?
hibiting the sale of whips, Henig
induced the agent to turu the goods
over to bim. Henig disposed of the
whips and Rudolph Brothels demand?

took out a warrant. Henig was dis?
missed for lack of evidence.
CORONATION OF FESTIVAL QUEEN.
A Brilliant Ceremonial Uifcnessed by ;n
immense Throng That Filled the
j On Wednesday niirbt tbe Opera
House was crowded, as it has seldom
been crowded, with a brilliant audi?
ence, each one eager to witness the
coronation of the Queeu of the Festi?
val and to participate in the ceremo?
nies as a loyal subj?ct and admirer of
the chosen Queen.
The Festival committee and the
State and county officials were grouped
on tbe stage in a semi-circie in the
center of which was placed the throne
of the Queen. The Queen, Miss Jew?
ell Burdell, attended by her Maids of
Honor, Misses Marie Moise and Rosa?
lie Moses, was escorted to the stage
surrounded hy a retinue. The Queen
was presented to the audience by Mr.
Neill O'Donnell and escorted to her
hrone, the audience standing the
The Queen was crowned by Maj. H.
Frank Wilson, who then delivered the
following coronation address, which
was as follows :
This is the crowning event in Sum?
ter's Fall Festival. It crowns our
beautiful city with a halo of gladness
and joy. lt crowns the Festival Com?
mittee with the welcome news of com?
plete success. It crowns as fair a
queen as ever swayed a sceptre, or
wore a regal diadem. In the olden
tim?is when cities were walled around
witt adamantine rock, crested with
turrsts, and battlements and towers,
and ponderous iron gates at night, se?
curely locked, shut in the city and its
oeople, and shut out the world be
vond-to be the keeper of tho city's
keys simply meant free egress from
aud ingress to the city. The Honora
oie Mayor of the City of Sumter has
formerly turned over to the President !
of the Festival the keys of the city
giving thereby, not only fres ingress
to, and egress from the city, but giv
mg as well a hearty and cordial wel
ome to the hospitality of ber people,
if it happens that we are unable to
entertain tbe thousands ofj friends
bo have come to share this festival
w ek with us, it will not be for lack
>f hospitality, but because the city is
axed, by the kindness ot' its friends
beyond its capacity to entertain.
Chere is not a home within the city's
imits, the latch string of whose doo
s not on the outside, bidding friend
and visitors come and welcome. There
s not a man, woman, or child, 1
night say, within cur bounds wno

the success of this festive occasior
nd who is not willing to spend am
?e spent in its interest. Sumter's las
'ail Festival was held in Octobe
-1891. In the ten years since then sb
aas grown, from a small tewn of 4,00(
people, into one of the most prospe?
rous, and progressive cities in feb?
tate. This growth is1 the outcome
oiely of the push, the iudustry, tbe
inergy, the progressive spirit of her
citizens. Her mercantile establish?
ments are abreast of any in the state,
.nd I might say wiheut exaggeration,
will near comparison with those o1
rities many times larger in popnla
t ou. The diversity of her manufac
uring enterprises outranks any citj
f her size in rhe South, and her rail
1 road faelities makes her the best rail
j road center in the State. King Cot?
ton, the South's great staple, is help?
ing to forge her to the front, alreadv
this season she has marketed 32,000
^ales and will before the season closes
market 40,000 bales of the fleecy sta?
ple. Over such a city, and the peo nie
who have made it, and during this
festive week, over the thousands of
her invited guests, who come to enjoy
this g8la season with us, your Majes?
ty is called to reign, and 1 am com?
missioned by your true and loyal sub?
jects to place upon your brow the dia?
dem of royalty, and to proclaim you
the chosen queen of Sumter's Fall
Festival. The President of the Festival
with the keys of the city in his keep?
ing, is but your loyal subject, as are
we ali. 'Tis yours to command, 'tis
ours t<"> obey. Under your just, be
nign and righteous reign, our beauti?
ful, progressive city is to enjoy a fes?
tive season beyond the expectation of
tbe most optimistic of your loyal sub?
jects. During this season of festive
merry making we pray your gracious
majesty to temper justice with mercy.
The quality of mercy is not strained,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from
Upon the place beneath ; it is twice
It blesseth him that gives and him
that takes :
Tis mightiest in the mightiest: it
The throned monarch better than his
His sceptre shows the force of tempo?
Tho attributes of awe and majesty,
Where, doth sit the dread and fear
Bat arey is above, tl ii s sceptered
It is an attribute to God Himself;
And earthly power doth show likest
When mercy seasons justice.*'
. There is one matter, your Majesty,
that needs immediate utterance.
*'They say, best men are moulded out
And for the most, become much more
Fori being a little bad."
We pray your majesty do issue now,
and have your heralds proclaim
throughout the confines of the city,
and that without delay, and edict,
permitting ali married men, whether
residents or visitors, during this gala
week, to stay out at night as late as
they please, and to be received at
home, regardless of the hour, without
the usual lecture which such trans?
gressions merit, and generally receive.
The time is short, your majesty, al?
ready tho whole of Tuesday night is
gene, and nearly half of Wednesday
night, and still your suffering sub?
jects, these married men, anxiously
await your royal permit.
"Do this-but this
And may the gods themselves build
up thy greatness,
As high as their own heaven.''
Such a reign, your Majesty, just,
and wise, and firm,and merciful, will j
redown to the glory of our chosen
queen, and conserve the best interests !
of your loyal, faithful subjects.
