~ IS LAST PUBLIC APPEARANCI
The news of Gen. Hampton's deat
was scarcely a surprise, yet it was nc
*.expected for a few daya more at leas
'The old soldier had been in failin
health for some months. His la,
public appearance was in Charles
ton on the occasion of the South Carn
lna college centennial, December 191
last. On that occasion there were tu
occasions upon which the aged her
spoke, and he made brilliant speecht
exciting great enthusiasm. One speec
was in the auditorium; the other at tI
banquet that night Gen. Hamptc

S soon his friends saw that the end was
approaching. During the past feu
months he has been steadily growinp
weaker, though up to a short time ago
he continued to take his daily drive
accompanied by his sons. Six days ag'
the general became very weak and had
to take to his bed. He fully realizec
that the end wz near. During the lasi
24 hours he had been conscious onl3
b at times.
WHEN THE END CAME.
On Thursday evenng Gen. Hamptor
had a long farewell talk with one of
his sisters, in which he expressei
beautiful sentiments. To Bishop Ca
pers and to one of his devoted friend,
and comrades he expressed himself it
t beautiful terms, forgiving all enemies
d and referring to the great beyond.

were with the general. who was un
conscious, his sisters, Misses Kate an;
a Caroline Hampton, his devoted daugh.

sons, Messrs. Geo. McDuffie and Alfred
f Hampton, his nephew, Mr. Franli
Hanpton, his niece. Mrs. John C. Has
kell, and Dr. B. W. Taylor, who was
surgeon general on his staff in the Con
C federate army. He passed away peace
1 fully and seemed simply to drop off tc
e sleep. Such was the end of a grand
man's career, the end of a man greal
s iti life and still great in death.
His last.words except some. sacrad tc
his family, were: "All my people, blacli
and white-God bless them all." .
Dr. Taylor said he died of valvulai
heart disease, superinduced by-old- age
the general having reached his 84th
birthday just two weeks ago.
CITY BELL TOLLED,
As soon as it was known that Gen
eral Hampton was dead the city bell
was tolled for an hour and immediate

both towers of the municipal building
Soon the State flag was at half marl
on the dome of the capitol, and in a
short time a force of men was busy it
swinging out black bunting across the
front of the portico, and twining the
same material about the columns.
Knots of crepe were placed on the
knobs of all the doors to the building.
When the news had reached the sec
retary of the treasury at Washington
that official ordered the flag op the
government building placed at hall

write the history of the ti es.
I desire to utter no inslncerity, for
among the leaders of-the' State there
has always been differen4es (as there
will be among a strong ;people.) Men
will differ as to politics a*nd what may
be thought for the best' interest of
the State by some will not be readily
approved by others. This is natural
and necessary. But thro'igh his whole
career his modest and manly worth
stood out, and his sincdrity and his
rugged honesty and patriotism one
never doubted. He has left a legacy
of honor. In his death the 'State has
lost a faithful son and humanity has
lost a friend.
It is meet, just and proper that in
recognition of his p.iblic services, no
less than in recognition of his private
virtues as a man, th-st this court do ad

until tomorrow morning.
Commander Starling of Camp Hamp
ton, as soon -as informed of the death.
at once detailed a number of the mem
bers of the camp to act as a guard of
honor at Gen. Hampton's bier, each
veteran to wear his Confederat. gray
uniform. Those selected were W. J.
Cathcart, E. J. Jones, M. A. Bridges,
Walter Stratton, Dr. J. W. Flinn, C. M.
Douglas, U. R. Brooks, Louis Levin,
Henry Heise and H. A. Harth. These
gentlemen promptly appeared in their
uniforms and went to the residence,
carrying their crepe-draped :amp ban
ner Which was left at the residence.
The family appreciated the camp's offer
of the guard, but declined to keep the
old. soldiers up all night, owing to the
presence of the young soldiers. T,he
veterans' guard will act tomorrow.

negroes gathered and threatened the
