THE CONFEDiERATE RiBUNION.
Columbia Warmly Welcomes the Old
Veterans, Who Have a Glorious Time
Within Her Gates.
The following is condensed from
the reports of Col. August Kohn, the
Columbia correspondent of The News
The gallant veterans of the South
Carolina Division, U. '. V., have
once more marched to their Capital
In behalf of South Carolina Co
lumbia gladly and proudly welcomed
these defenders of Southern rights.
For their sakes and in memory of
their deeds her gates were opened
wide and warm was the welcome that
came from the hearts of a people.
The stars and bars wore seen from
the tops of houses, from windows, on
vehicles and, best of all, they were
waving in the hands of the fair
daughters of South Carolina. Pic
tures of Jackson, Hampton and Lee
were seen, always surrounded by the
battle flags of the Southern Confed
Secretary of State Gantt had the
State H'use decorated and Governor
Heyward had his office floating the
stars and bars and the Palmetto
flag. The Governor's mansion was
draped in these patriotic colors.
They clung, with loving pride,
around the marble monument. to the
Confederate soldier in front of the
capitol, and, flower-laden and beau
tiful, they rested npon the old war
cannon that stand silent and solitary
around this monument..
The notes of the bugle and the
drum were heard again and the band
played "Dixie" and the "Bonnie Blue
Flag!" Electric lights in red and
white lined the sides of the streets
and overarched it at regular inter
vals. And peace was in the air,
while the birds sang and the breezes
blew softly for those tier) spirits
whose valor gave the doom of battle
in the bloody arbitrament of war.
The tents on the State House
grounds were vivid reminders of the
old fighting days. Adj. (en. Frost
was busy preparing this camp for the
old veterans, knowing that they
would like these resting places. The
large tent held over 200 soldiers and
the numerous small tents made things
look regimental here.
TIlE FIltST DAY.
The veterans caine in the first. day
in large niumbers. Every t rain on
Monday night bronght. squads and
companies and1 on Tuesday, the first
and opening day of the reunion, the
old v'eteratn were ini comlplete possesS

The opening event a as the wel

from (1 to 7.3(0 Tueday evening.
Numbers of t ho old veterans were
there, "'loo(king arter"' t heir spionsors

The ent husi asm reachled its hieight

that there wvere 15.,000) visitors in
Coluobia, and over 15,000 Co . der
ate veterans. The chief featutre of
the day wits the parato e Voters Iii,
escorted by the sons of veterans, the

The parado of vetorais on Wed
nesday afternoon was truly it remark
able scene. It. was a truly inspiring
sight, one that could only be seen in
the Southland, where the Confed rate
Veteran is held in the highest regard
and deepest reverence. It. showed
how thoroughly the old soldier of the
sixties holds the hearts of the multi.
tudes. There was a parade here, a
parade in which the Confederate
Veterans were the central figures and
held the place of honor. It had
rained on and off during the day; the
streets were muddy and slushy, but
the old and tottering veterans, ever
faithful to the call, formed in line
and marched through Colunbia's
streets It was a brave effort, but
those who stood the trail won the
plaudits of the tbousands who waited
their coming along Main street and
upon the State Housegounds. There
were the Sons of Veterans in line, who
wore the kaki uniforms of the regular
army, and they made up the ranks of
the three companies that acted as
escort. Then there were the officers
and marshals on horseback and in car
riages and the charming sponsors of
the veterans. More than three hun
dred school children, in Confederate
colors, were in line, and, with Super
intendent Dreher at the head of the
column, through the muddy streets
marched these three htndred chil.
dren, each bearing a basket from
which flowers were strewn along the
last part of the route, and for wore
than a block the gallant old soldiers
marched over a bed of roses. WA it
not indeed a picture? The old sol
diers were deeply afiected. There
were from l,500 to 2,000 veterans,
who formed in twos to make the
march and it was it glorious march
for them. Along the entire route
were crowded people who waved
their hands and hurrahed until they
were hoarse in their applaudits. It
is not an easy task for the soldier of
the 60's to take such a march, but it
must have had its compensation this
