What a pity it is that Columbia's
pretty Opera House, instead ot be
ing given over to the base use of ne
gro minstrels and ballet dancers,
cannot witness more of such charm
ing programs as was rendered there
last Friday evening.
It was miserably mean weather;
the wind blew a gale and the rain
poured in torrents, and the night
was as black as ink. But with all
that some two hundred people dared
the elements rather than miss the
treat in store. In the audience were
more than twenty of the Institute
ladies, and as many more from the
McDowell school, and both Prot.
Merrill and Mr. Moore felt greatly
complimented by their presence.
The program was in every particu
lar delightful; varied, not too long,
and every number rendered by an
artist. Prof. Merrill's interpreta
tion of Mr. Moore's work gave a new
charm to these delightful "songs
and stories," and the cultured au
thor himself says that he wondered
at times himself if he had indeed
written the things. The Herald
will not venture a suggestion as to
which of his selections were the
best, they were all so good ; his con
ception so perfect and his art so na
tural. In hearing him read we for
got the reader In the naturalness of
his art,-and Baw only the characters
as they lived and talked, laughed
or wept, rode on that staggering
terrible ride across the plains on Old
Tennessee, or won, with Old Mistls,
the greatest race ever run on Ten
nessee soil. A great critic nas said
hat simplicity Is greatness, and in
all his interpretations Prof. Merrill
has proven the saying to be true.
Free from stage acting, from unnec
essary display, from the tricks of
smaller artists and the showiness of
esser spirits, he rises, in each and
every Instance at once Into the art
of a happy conception of his charac
ters and puts them before his audi"
ence In the simplicity of truth and
with the unerring instinct of a mas
ter. His voice is wonderful In Its
versatility, his expression equal to
any demands ana his gesticulation
simple, easy and natural.
liarringrror. Merrill, it was dis
tinctly a night of Columbia1 talent;
Mrs. Henry O. Fulton on the piano.
Miss Elizabeth Dale and Mrs. For
gey with their sweet songs, Prof. J.
Hough liuest, on the violin, accom
panied by Miss Camille Herndon;
all of whom sustained fully their
well earned reputations In their re
spective lines, and added additional
fame to their names: Mrs.1 Fulton
is a pianist of rare touch and tech
niaue. of creat scone and denth. and
acquitted herself beautifully upon
tnis occasion; Mrs. rorgey and Miss
Dale, both of whom have more than
a local reputation as "Columbia's
song birds," never more richly de
served the enthusiastic encores they
received, miss Dale's selections
were not difficult' but wonderfully
sweet, and she never looked pret
tier nor sang sweeter in her life. Mrs.
torgey had not sang In public for
some two years, and the audience,
many or whom had been attracted
by her name on the program, were
hungry for the music of her voice.
Her first selection was a most diffi
cult aria, which showed to advan
tage the training and wonderful
flexibility of her beautiful voice, but
her encores, sweet, simple and
catchy, were possibly more enjoyed.
pror. uuest is a genius or whom his
native town is proud. It is probable,
that not so good a violinist for his
age exists in the South, as this
young man, reared in Columbia,
and who has spent so many years In
study, perfecting himself in his art.
Miss Herndon is a great favorite in
Columbia, where her talents are
highly appreciated, and her friends
were glad to welcome her again af
ter her long ellence.
But "Trotwood" Inspired it all.
But for his genius there would have
been none of it. He was the back
ground to the beautiful picture, and
it was the master stroke of his magic
pen that wakened the music of
our song birds and gave a melody to
the voice of the reader. Mr. Moore
will wake up famous some of these
days. Such purity of thought, such
simplicity of expression, such melt
ing pathos, such truly poetic songs
and stories, will grow 1 into the
minds and hearts of the readers of
good and wholesome literature, and

Tells How the "No-Primary"
Be Says the Committee Was Worked In
the Interest of Individual, and
Not the Party.
Editor Herald: I am not at
all anxious to rush into print, but
since the last meeting of tne Demo
rratio Executive Committee of this
county, and In view of the com
ments and criticisms that have been
made, I want to make a few state
ments. I see I am put on record as voting
for the resolution passed at that
meeting. The fact is, I was not
present at the meeting, but suppose
some kind friend voted for me.
However, I am not making any
special kick about the way my vote
was cast. I was indifferent as to
how itshould be cast, or whether or
not it was cast at all.
That thero is "widespread dis
satisfaction" among the Demo
crats of this county, is evident to
anybody who will look and listen.
The editor of the Herald seems to
ignore this fact, and yet he knows
it is a fact. But there is a cause for
this "widespread dissatisfaction,"
and it is about this - cause that I
want to write.
Before the primary sy6tem was
established it was a free-for-all
fight at the general election. Oc
casionally a Republican would slip
in, and there was always a scramble
for the colored vote. At first this
vote was carried with whiskey and
a great hurrah, but later on it bad
to be bought. Good citizens gen
erally and Democrats in particular,
disapproved of that practice, and the
primary system was established so
as to be certain to shut out all Re
publicans and to be independent of
the negro vote.
At first the nomination by the
Democratic party meant an elec
tion; but professional electiou
workers soon commenced to bid for
the white vote and it was found
that lots of thm were for sale, and
a great wrangle at the primary was
The latter class of citizens again
became dissatisfied and demanded
that something should be done.
They said they would quit the pri
mary if something was not done.
They looked to the Executive Com
mittee to regulate and control these
matters. Accordingly two years
ago a special meeting of the com
mittee was called to do something
to stop this traffic in votes. But
it happened that some of the can
didates had money to spend and
were not willing to risk their
chances on their personal following.
They wanted the advantage their
money would bring, so they went to
work on the committee. , Got a few
influential members on their side
and a lot of others followed, o by
the time of the meeting; the com
mittee was "packed" in such a way
that no reform measure could be
When this news went out to the
people they began to realize that
the committee was controlled by
a ring. That It was being made a
tool of by scheming candidates and
Primary elections then fell Into
disrepute. The nominees at tbe
following general election had a
Now two years have rolled by,
and elections are on again, and the
candidates are scheming again.
They reason that if a fight Is made
in the primary, it must also be made
in the general election. That is ex
pensive. So the committee is
"packed" again, aud "no primary"
is the consequence.
Some say the laws are strict now
and that no money can be used in
the general election; then some of
the candidates know that they, and
especially some of their friends,
have a strong pull on the colored
vote, and thus they have this ad
vantage. So the scheme is still
The fact is this committee is not
in the true sense a Democratic
committee. For no man is a true
Democrat and loves the principles
of his party as he should, who will
use his official position on the com
mittee to advance the interests of
any particular candidate at the
sacrifice of party organization. Let
the committee, therefore, be re
organized, and let men be put on
who will work from principle and
not through policy. Let the people
see that equal rights are guaranteed
to everybody, then Democrats will
flock together and stand shoulder
to shoulder against their ancient
