Mr. J. M. Williams has resigned as
superintendent of Mill number 1, and
will leave in a few days for his home
in Kings Mountain, N. C. After get
ting straightened out in his homestead
he and Mrs. Williams expect to go to
some resort for a month or two of
rest and recreation. Mr. Williams
came to Winnsboro in 1916 and 'ur
ing this time he has made a host of
friends who will deeply regret that
he is leaving Winnsboro. Mr. Will
iams is one of the best and most wide
ty known mill men of the South. He
has been in the manufacturing busi
ness since he was a mere strip of a
lad. A number of. years ago(he wont
say how many) he was born in Ran
dolph County, N. C., at the old Colum
bia mills at what is now known as
Ramsena, N. C. At age of eight he
went to Burlington, N. C., where he
worked for the late James E. Holt at
Carolina Cotton Mill, as a sweeper
for 10 cents per day. From here Mr.
Williams went at age of 12 to Swep
sonville, N. C., to Falls Nuse Manu
facturing Company, where he worked
ed thru every department, learning
th6 mill business. From 8wepsonville
Mr. Williams went to Dan River Mills
as second hand in card room. Short
ly afterwards the overseer of card
ing left at Dan River Millis and Mr.
Williams succeeded him. Soon after
wards he was placed in charge of
carding and spinning at this plant.
He remained with the Dan River
Mills for six years, leaving them to
take a better position with Cherokee
Falls Manufacturing Company, Chero
kee, S. C., as overseer of carding and
spinning. After remaining there only
nine months Mr. Williams was pro
moted and transferred from this plant
to Kings Mountain, N. C., as super
intendenz. After six years of success
ful operation of the above plant, by
Mr. Williams the Delling Mill was
built in 1894 by the same company
that owned the Kings Mountain Man
ufacturning Company and Mr. Will
iams was transferred to this plant as
superintendent and vice president.
A short time later he was placed over
the Cora Mills and the Enterjise
Mills. For seven years Mr. Williams
was superintendent of these three
Mills, being a member of the board of
directors of each of the Mills. In
1901 Mr. Williams moved to Charlotte
where he superintended the Louise
Mill for three years. He was also
stockholder and member of the board
of directors of Louise Mills. In 1904
Mr. Williams was called back to Kings

BLEASE AND WILSON.
To the Editor of The State:
C. L. Blease has not denied that he
wrote the letter wherein he bragged
on one J. W. Tolbert, and in that
same letter denounced Woodrow Wil
son and said he was glad that Mr.
Harding vas elected; this being true,
do you think he voted for Mr. Cox,
the Democratic nominee for presi
dent? Why should he, if he wanted
Mr. Harding elected? Now he is ask
ing the people of South Carolina, a
purely Democratic state, to elect him
governor, and yet he denounced the
only real leader of democracy we have
had in ages (Mr. Wilson) and he
gloats over the election of Mr. Hard
ing against Mr. Cox for the presi
dency and I have wondered if our
true Democrats can reconcile this and
vote for him.
