Newberry today welcomes the South Carolina Daughters of the Confederacy, and the welcome is from the heart, and deep and sin cere. Theirs is a lofty mission, and| right nobly are they fuldilli-ng it. Newberry honors them for them selves and for the work in which they are engaged. I Daughters of men of heroic mould, t they have assumed the -duty-and it is a high privilege as well-of guard ing sacredly and of transmitting to suceeeding generations of the South, the priceless heritage handed down .by their fathqrs, add of honoring the declining years of those of the armies of Lee and Jaickson who -yet survive. Daughters, of the women of the t South whose sacrifices in thon try ing days of the sixties were even greater than those of the Southern i soldier, the trust which they have N .is safe in their hands. Their meeting in Newberry to-day 0 will recall the glory and the gloom, the heroism and the heart-aches, the patriotism and the pathos, of the greatest struggle of modern times. But the recollection will bring with o it no bitterness nor any vain regrets. - The heroic struggle of those who were the grey and the heroic strug- b gle. of those who wore the blue is now a common heritage:of ,all the f people of a great nation. What the. t Daughters of the Confederacy seek a is that the deeds of their fathers [t shall be writ, and writ in words of truth. I1 Daughters of the Confederacy of South Carolina-the State which led|~ the Confederacy - Newberry bids you welcome, and may your sessions be profitable, and your stay pleas-v ant in our midst, as we shall strive I to make it. . r Speaking of the* winding-up of the t dispensary and the work of the winding up commission the Columbia Record remarks: "Al.1 of which C seems to indicate that the State dis- I pensary will not be wound. up as long as the lawyers see prospects of fees."' And why hould the cQmmis-( sion or the lawyers either one be in 1 a hurry. It is not only good picking ~ for lawyers but may be woi-ked foi political preferment. THE QUALITY 0OF NEWS. Marse Henry Watterson .xpresses " the appreeiation that. the American 6 press must inaugurate reform or it may begin degeneration. He thinks 1 the tendency of reporters is towards I the training of detectives insteaxd of . the gathering of wholesome facts and ~ the deductions of post conclusions I from these. t Complaint has been made before ~ that the tendency of modern news- ' paper training of young reporters is to regard as news that which thap .pens with a hang or with blood. The sensational press,--the yellow .jour nal,-is.responsible for this training-. It is the result, not of any effort to 1 train young men to the art of news - gathering but is rather of neglect of training. The yello.w journal simply lowers the stanidard and the young man naturally slides down to the lower standards of noise and blood or of discovering mares nests on the general principle that, if the way is open, it is easier to degenerate than it is to improve. Col. Watterson is right in saying it is no part of a good reporter's work to hunt idown the private affairs of individuals and expose them, es pecially when these i:ave no bear inig upon the mora.s or progress of soniety in general. News should be clean'and wholesome and there is plnty of the latter kind to engage ill the industry and talents of th< ,oung genth men of the press. xreenville News. There is a great deal of truth ir hese remarks and they cannot b( ;oo strongly urged upon, not onl ;he young reporter, but some wh< iave been in the business a long timi ieed to have impressed upoi ;hem the responsibility they beai ;o society and the moral uplif )' the community, when they ar writing for the printed page. *We too often, even in writing h iews, try to punish our enemy or ex dt our friend at the expense of th4 iews value of what we write. Ii his day the news column has a mor )owerful influence than the edito -ial column and -too freuently it i >resided over by some one who ei her does not care or does not realizo t-nd appreciate the responsibility o ;he position -he fills. It is not the reporter's right t< unt down private affairs nor to ex >loit them in the newspaper even i ie thinks by so doing he can injur4 supposed enemy or cast a slur or ns name. The Herald and News desires t< ssure -Mr. Aiken that it will co perate most heartily with him ir ny efforts he may make for the in erests of -his district. It was noi sur purpose to criticize any effort h( Las made, and if what we said couk e so construed such constrmetior as not intended. We assure Mr. Liken that he will have our support a anything that is for the benefit f any part of his district* or the 'tate.
