VOL 12-NO. 13 PICKENS, S. C., THURSDAY, APRIL 24, 0 oA THE BURIAL TWENTY THOUSAND The Funeral Ceremoi Uniostent VETERANS FILL THE GRAVE Sunday afternoon, April 13th, 1902, the mortal remains of Gen. Wade Hampton were laid to rest in the beau tiful old cemetery at Trinity church, in sight of the capitol building on whose steps he stood more than a quarter of a century alo and spoke words of pacifl cation to an angered crowd of his fel lo*-citizens, who felt that their rights were being trampled upon, advising that the peace be preserved and that retaliation for wrongs be put aside. It was an occasion the like of which hhs never been witnessed in South Carolina until now. Simple, unosten tatious, without display of any kind, it was in accord with the wishes of the dead hero and patriot that he should be laid away, not with outward demon strations that too often are meaning loss, but in the beautiful simplicity which rises to grandeur when the hearts of the people are attuned to the sweet solemnity expressive of their honest grief and unaffected sorrow. Under the wide-spreading branches of a live oak that looks to be the sur- t vivor of centuries, and anmid the sur roundings that echoed the tread of his ancestors upon pathways that lead to f the grave, their honored dust to be re freshed with the knightliest of them all, r Wade Hampton was put out of the sight of man, while the tributes of love and affection were heaped upon the C new mound that marks his resting C place henceforth. Not less than twenty t thousand people were there to testify v their gratitude for the life that had ebbed away, while from far and near had come floral offerings that were expressive of the purity and beauty of a his character. It had been announced that the body would lie in state at the family n residence on the corner of Barnwell and Senate streets, in order that his comrades especially might have a last look at the old warrior, and early in the day there was a stream of visitors who passed through the guard and8 entered the house with uncovered heads. The special guard of honor was composed of a detail from Camp I amp- I ton, the members of which were clad in Confederate gray uniforms, and c kindly received all who came. There was hardly any cessation of visitors from 10 to 2 o'clock, and thousands of people were ushered during that time through the home, passing by the casket and looking at the silent figure it that lay there with the calmness of eternal peace on his countenance. il The funeral was beyond question the tj largest that has ever been held in f, Columbia, and many say the greatest h that has ever been held in the State, 'j certainly the most eventful in the j memory of those who attended the c great t~ribute to the virtues and upright- y ness of Hampton. There was no part of the State that was without represen- t tation at the funeral. This, in itself, bore testimoiny to the great love the ti people bore their hero of peace and c war. n Veterans, Sons of Veterans, iDaugh- r< ters of the Confederacy, citizens, aol- c diers, municipal delegations, civic or ganizations, all vied for place in the t] great funeral cortege. Never before has there been such a supeCrl; collection of floral decorations y andl tributes to any man in the State. t The larger pieces filled two wagoras, and each of the hundred Daughters of a the Confederacy was handIed a floral design to carry in the line of march and place upon the mound at the cemetery. It was a delicate compli mient and at the same time kept the floral offerings in the best possible conthition. In the line of march were hundreds of young soldiers wearing the blue that was so often the target of Jlamp- I ton's men and at the grave the taps were blown by two young men in the Union blue. There wore no flags ex cept those that had gone through the bloodiest of battles in the line. The line of procession was formed ini< front of Gen. Hampton's home and the central committee in charge of the arrangements, consisting of Messrs Ambrose E. Gonzales, W. H. Gilbbes, Jr., and Capt. W. D. Starling, deserve great credit. There was no delay, no1 confusion, and for so large a parade it could not have beenr better managedl. .The line extended all the way from the Hampton home to Trinity Church. The route of the processionj was from the residence to the church, and it proceeded through broad streets be tween 80o1(d lines of people. Not only were the pavements packed with peo pie of all ages and classes, but windows andh piazzas in residences along the line weie crowded with people. Every point of '.anmtage from whi,:h the pro cession might be seen was occupied. The square about tihe church and thme churchyard itself was onme s->lid mass of A humanity as the funeral cortege ap proached. Along the short walk from the churchyard gate to the entrance, on either side, were lined t~he Governor and hi Blaf naNndl Seta oamecals, sande OF HAM PTON.

As the casket was borne into the church, followect by the family, the ladies fol lowed, preceding the oficers, after them coming survivors and distin guished visitors until the large edifice could hold no more. Comparatively few of the thousands attending the funeral could get into the church, and they, too, could not get near the grave, but they remained silently and respect fully, until all was over. When the procession arrived at Trin. ity church, the streets were literally packed with people, and not a vehicle was in sight except the carriages oc. cupied by the family of Gen. Hlamp ton, the only ones permitted in the line of march. On reaching the front gate of the church, the body was met by Bishop Ellison Capers, who was in ,harge of the funeral services by spe 3ial request of the family. Bishop Dapers, who has been a lifelong friend f Gen. Hampton, was assisted in the services by the rector, the Rev. Mr. 3atterlee and the Rev. Messrs. Wit ell Thomas and Joyner. The same iood order that prevailed on the pa ade was carri(d out in the arrange nouts in the church. Trinity church an at most accommodate 1,500, and fLer the full capacity hal been util d, others anxioui to get into their iurch were advised that they must orego that privil ge. The Veterans, ions of Veterans and military had to emain outside, as Ti inity was already ill. The services were those ordi. arily used in the Episcopal church. lishop Capers did not think the time ir the occasion suited for a funeral 'ration and lie confned the services to he letter of the prescribed service, rhich is isimple and impressive. While the distinguished pall-bearers ore the casket into the church the urpliced choir sang ",Rock of Ages," nd as the reftain died away the Rev. fr. Joyner read the lesson of the day. Lfter this the Rev. Mr. Satterlee an- i ounced the hymn, " Lead, Kindly I .ight," which wao the favorite hymn I L Gen. Hampton, and which he asked I bbuld be sung at his funeral. Bishop Capers then with much feel- i ig read the chapters of the Bible pre 3ribed in the liturgy. The Rev. Mr. atterlee delivered the prayer and the E Lper) choir sang " How Firm a < toundation, Ye Saints of the Lord." I t the conclusiou of the services the E sket was borne out to the burial t round. After the bricklayers had completed 1 ie masonry arch work the members f Camp Hampton, Confederate Vet- I rans, took the spades and began fill ig in the grave, while the Trinity 1 boir sang appropriate hymns. k Around the grave, besides the fam- < y, were assembled the flag-bearers of E ie fourteen or fifteen camps of Con- i derate Veterans, each holding his i at in his hand and his lag "at rest." I 'he services just at this point were npressive to the highest degree. One f the D~aughters of the Confederacy tinted under the nervous st~rain, When the mound was completed I :io magnmficent floral offering of Campi [ampton was placed at the hieadl of 1 bie grave. This was in the shape of a I ross, standing about six feet high, iade of white flag liles entwined with I ad and white satin ribbon, The o111 ial floral offerings were then laid up n the grave, arranged by the ladies of be Wade Hampton chapter, U. D). C.,4 f Columbia. The floral tributes were so numerous hat the crowd was pushedl back and i he flowers were placed aroundl the imound about five or six feet on either ide. In the branchies of the over anging cedar tree wvere hung many cautiful wreaths. When all the flowers had been laced Adjutant Newman gave the ommand for " taps." Messrs. rhomas E. Lightfoot and George M. (olhn sounded taps as slow and im )ressive as ever a soldier heard, and hen Bishop Capers offered a short rayer and the funeral services were HI E FLORA r6 TInUTElJiS TO 1HAM I"PON. The floral offerings which were sent o the house wvere positively beyond ~ount. The beautiful flowers were anked deep upon chairs and tables in >othi the' parlors anid the hall. The ramihy did not desire that the private aardls be published. Some of these were among the handsomest. The beauty of the formation of the floral pieces, the exquisiteness of the blend ing of colors anid the variety of flowers are positively inconceivable by one who dlid not see them. Thlie sentiment of the cards and~ the thoughts which the senders exp~ressed were beautiful. One of the handsomest of all the floral offerimgs was an easel of pink carnations and white bri desmaid rose buds, entwined with maiden hair ferns and smilax. In the centre was a bunch of calla lilies with asparagus ferns and paln leaves. This offering stood about five feet high. On the left hand top corner was a magnificent bow of white satin ribbon. On the extreme top was white and red baby ribbon and on the sides were two cardsa, one ini scribed: "Knightly soldier, wise states man, typical Southern gentleman," and the other was : " Fromi friends, Augusnia, Ga,"9 AN APP'EAl TO DI)EIMOCRAl The Principles of Tioma,,0 Je fersol nre Equal to the Prol lents of To-Day. Thomas Jefferson's birthday, 14 of April, was the occasion of a notab gathering of Democrats in New Yo City, under the auspices of the Dem cratic Club, which conunemorated tI day with a reception at its club hous it was intended as a peace and uni meeting, an effort to harmonize ti discordant elements of New Yo1 Democracy. David B. ill, who had not visit< the club for a number of years, was ti chief orator of the evening, and in hi speech he called upon Democrats I unite in harmony. Perry Belinon whose differences with Mr. Bryan an Mr. Croker have kept him away froi the club for three years, was a18 there. Lewis Nixon, the new leader < Tammany Hall, introduced the speal or. Mr. Iill, among others thingE spoke of the combinations of capital Ie said: is One of the great problems whic is now presented to the peoplc fc their solution is how shall Jefferson' sentiments be utilized for the preven tion of the evils which lie foreshadow ed? It is not a question for political jugglery. It Is not a question to b lightly dismiissel. It is an elementar) proposition which the wisdom of ex periences has abundantly confirmed and which, even in these days of un paralleled business combinations anI speculations, ought not to be disputed that whatever tends to create a mo no)Gly and prevent legitimate coipe Lition between those engaged in o business impressed with a public 0] iuasi-public character, is opposed to f iound public policy. " It is perhaps dillicult to predict low Jefferson, if lie were alive today, Nould meet the difficulties which we mcountei, We venture to suggesi ,hatl he would insist upon some reason. ible limitation upon the amount of .orporate capital which might be in. i-sted in a single corporation. " Jefferson's teachings might wug. ,est a limitation upon the amount of ,he dividends which could be lawfully leclared or upon the profits which -ould be legally accumulated by thes< ,remendous business organizations, or re might demand that the govern nent, in justice to its over-burdene1 axpayers, should withdraw its tariff rom the infant industries represented >y these institutions, whose projectors re already rolling in wealth and are taonishing the world by the munili ence by their private benefactions. " We may well believe that Jeffcr on, who was equal to every emerg ncy in the early history of our coun ry, would, if he were in power, fld om1c appropriate and adequate remedy o curb the rapacity and restrict the langerous power of these gigantic com 4inations." On the subject of colonial extension dr. Hill said: " It is safe to believe that Jefferson vould never have favored aii expan ion of our jurisdiction which did not arry with it the provisions of our corn titution, to which he was devotedly ttached, ani which lie defended so rigorously with his voice and pen. Le would unquestionably have viewed vith abhorrence the establishment of permanent American colonial sys em, whether continued und~er military ule or under civil authority appointed ty the central governiment at Wash ngton. Ihis theory was unquestiona >ly the D~emocratic dloctrine of today hat this government has no more Luthority to create a permanent co onlal system thiain it has the right to reate a king. " Jeffersonr, as the friend of popular ights, favored a provision in the Fed ral constitutioin for the election of nited States Senators by the people >t thre resp~ective States, but temtpo arily yiehled Iris views rather than im eril the adoption of that instrurment. " Jefferson believed ini honest men, n honest methods andI in honest gov rrnment. ie would have uprootecd sorruptionr had it existecd in either na lion, State or municipality. " Ths considerations naturally3 lead to the suggesition that it is pecui liarly our duty, as it should be our pleasure, at the present, time, to invit< Democrats of character, standing anm influence to idlentify themselves withl organized movements for party sue acsr, for the proimoition of the truw priniciphes of J effersoniaii Democrac3 mimi the elevations of the standlards o the public service. " Why dtividle on questionable utter aunces of modern party platforms, larg< ly designedh to meet temporary emergen cies which soon pass away, when wi are all united upon the rock botton and fundamental doct~rines of on faith intended to last as long as ou government itself shall endure? SWhy should there be fac tional quarrels over detnils when w, are all uinitedl uponi essentials? "1it is the part, of wvisdomi for Lih D~emocracy to push to the front irhe is sues upon which there is substantia unanimity, andl ignore those in regar< to which there are such serious ani honest differences of opinion as mnur be fatal to practical success. " The administration of ['residen Rloosevelt, is all at sea. It has ni fiIxed~pol icies and no conscieiitious cor victions. " if any relief whatever to Cul shall be secredO~ from tihe p~resent A( ministration it will be due to tire di cided stand takenr by tire Demrocra in Congress in insisting that justic should be doiie. "'VThe policy of tihe administratih in tire l'huilinpmne islanrds Is a disgra S to civilization. The attempt with re. gard to these possessions to imitate the f. foreign policy of England has proved a dilsial failure. " The administration wil) send its special representatives to witness the h coronation of a king, but it has no le words of sympathy to express for the rk brave farmers of South Africa, who [. are heroically struggling to maintain ke their republics." 0. In conclusion Mr. lill said: y " Follow Democrats: On this day, to devoted to honoring the momory of k one who lias been frequently styled ' Ths wisest and truest Dmocrat of d his times," let us resolve to rnew our c allegiance to the principlos which he is inculcated and the policies which lie o advocated. " There are numerous indications of d a revival of popular confidence in De a locratic policies, State and national. o A change of measures and muen seeis to be iniperatively demanded by the ,f best interests of our State and coun try. " Our opponents have only succeed. .d in recent years by unfortunate di visions among ourselves. Let 01u :1 faces now be toward the coniion r enemy. 1 It is a time for unity, for organiza - tion, for wise counsels and far aiggres sive actioi. PRIlNCE ,AMONG PitEACH1ElUS Tile Remnarkable Curcer of tie Laite T. De W itt TalmaIg, 1)1 ). The Philadelphia Times gives tit folowing sketch of the noted preacher, Dr. Talmage, who die i on the 12,th inst. at his home in Washington, 1). C. The inimediate source of death was inflammation of the brain: With, perhaps, the exception of Henry Ward Beecher, the Rev. T. De Wilt Talmage had a more widespread reputation than any other American preacher of tile gospel. For over foity years lie has been a conspicu ous figure inl the religious life of America. Even during Bleccher's life he held with that eminent divioe an al most equal place as a pulpit orator, and since Ik cher's death no other preacher has had a popularity with re ligious audiences comparable to his. His fame was not confined to Ameri ca. Ile preached with great success in England, and his sermons have been transhtted into many languages. During tile greater part of his career he added to the circle of 1us influence by writing sermons esp'cially for the newspapers throughout the cointry, and the last few years of his life have been devoted exclusively to this work. Dr. Talmag 0 a. born in Bound Brook, N. J., January 7, 18:12. His education was obtained at the Uni versity of New York. On graduating t from tils University in 185:1 he i-ad law for some time, but concluding that law was not his vocation lie decided to enter the ministry. Ie stidied theol ogy at the New Brunswick Theologi cal Seminary. Completing his course lie preached for a period in Belleville, N. J., and Syracuse, N. Y. Af ter a two year'spastorate in Syracuse lie went to Philadelphia and becaicthe pasltor of the Second Reforied Dutch Church of that city, at 7th and Brown streets. It was while ihe was tbI pastor of this church that lhe laid thle foundation of his great reputation as an exhlorter. When 1he took charge of it the Sec 0ond Reformed D)utch Church was ani inlstitutionl of little influence. He p~ut new life into it, and dIrew a crowdl al most from the st~art,. ie attractecd general attention ini the Quaker City by his senlsation~al methods. lI y many lie was dlelaredl a pulpit clown and1( a mountebank, but despito deotractionl his congregation contmnuedl to grow im size until the church was inladequatec for its accommodation. Overtures soon came to him from congregations of greatecr wealth andl inftluence t~han tbat, over~ which lie presidied in P'hiladelphia, and lie was fimdhly perisuadied to accept a call tendered to him by the Central Presbyterian Church of Brooklyn. Apparently this oifer did not 1hold forth thbe promlise of offers which lieI hlad received from Chicago and San Francisco, for the reason that, thme Ceni trail Presbytecrian Church was ait thlat timle rent, with dissenlsionis, but for some reason it appealed to him with greater tore. Ini lIrooklymin h con tinuledl the miethlods of prea1chinlg which had attrtactecd aittenitioni to hlim in Phil adlelphlia, buit, with a much larger sue cess. An illustration of these methods which provokedl criticism im some qluarters which b~ordleredI on the vitu .lperative is found ini the press rep~orts of the (liy. It is given as a fair sam.. - plc of his sensationalism. One Sun 3 (lay morning when the time caime for him to deliver hlis sermon lie wtalked to tho extreme edge on one side of his r fifty-foot platform, faced about andii suddl~enly started as fast, as lie could to - jump for the oppiositec sidIe. .1 ust, as everybody ini the congregation, breath less, expectedl to see him pitch head 3 lon~g from the further sidIe of tbe plat, - form lie lealped suddenly into the air I and caime down with a crash, shout I ing: " Youing man, you are rumshiing to.. t ward a precipice." And then lie pro ceedled to deliver a moving sermonl t umpon the temptations and sins of youth o in a big city. -Dr. Talmage's preaching became the religious senisation of the time'. a A brief experienice dlemionsltratedl the I. ntecessity for a laiger edifice to accoml 3- mlodate the aud(ienlces which iis re :s markable sermons attracted. To give e a greater opplortumnity to hear him a large tabernacle was built, the old1 n1 church edifice being used as a Sunda e ashool. Silch wats the enthusian .a which his proaching arouse(I that this tabernacle was rushed to completion and was opened by Dr. Talmage three months after it been begun. All seats in it were free. It was of great capac ity; nevertheless hundreds of people were turned away every Sunday. The burning of this tabei nacle one Sunday morning in December, 1872, ats the people were on their way to I church, is one of the memorable fire calamities of Brooklyn. A new and greater tabernacle was projected anud was completed in 1874. Dr. Talmuage's congregation in the meantime assem bled in the Academy of Music. The new tabernacle was semi-ci rcu lar in form, the seate being so arranged that all could see and hear the minis- e ter, who preached from a platform. f Dr. Talmage preached i this new in tabernacle for years, with constantly iereasmg 8ticcess. Like the first tab- h ernacle, it, Was destroyed by lire. Its fate impressed the congregation v with the belief that there wits a fatali ty about the location in Schermerhorn street and the third tabernacle bumilt for )r. TaInage was erected at Clini ton and (ticene avenues. Thie also Vas de8troyed by fire. . )iscouraged by the repeated calawn ities which attended his ministry in Brooklyn Dr. Talmage mnade the anl-W nouncement that lie would give up helding a regular pastorate and devote " himself to evangelical work. Later, however, he reconsidered this intention I IInd accepte( a call to the First l'res- oI byterian Church of Washinton. B While lie preached in Washington i o large congregations, he failed to It irouse tile eIthisjasii twhich attendeld Iis ministry in l'hiladelphia and y( lrooklyn. This was probably attri- of )utable in i latrge degree to the more w: -onservative character of the popilia- at ion, and may have been duo to some M xtent to the fact that Dr. Talmage be ame more and more absorbed in I ,ious journalism. . CI After preaching in Washiington for our years Dr. Talhage, on March 1> tb 899!3, resigned the pastorate of the First is resbyterian Church, giving as his ra on his desire to devote himself exclu-. i% cly to " religious journalism ilnld the nore general work in the cities." Sinlce tu hat time his reputation has been 11 iomewhat, on the wane, for while his f iermons in the newspapers have been A A videly read, the personal element yhich colstitut ed so large i factor in is success has been lacki. N IDr. Talmage caie of a family ol vhich had a predilietion for the nuni3- ri ry. Four of his brothers received the e lonored title of doctor of divinity. ' uohn V. N.
