In North Carolina Object to Textile Union
May SI.ut Down.
CllAKI.OTTK, N. C., August 18
The ICrwill Cotton Mills, ono of the
largest in the State, will likely bc
forced to shut down in a few ?lays
because of the organization ol" a
textile mill workers' union among
its employees. About a month ago
tho organization was started and be
fore lite mill owners were aware of
its existence there wen' a large num
ber of members and thc organization
had secured a linn footing. livery
effort w?m made lo stop the organiza
tion, but to no avail and Saturday it
was stated that there were 200 mem
bers in this mill alone, in addition to
another branch in the blast Durham
mill. A few days ago some If) of
the members of the union were noti
fied that they would not bo needed
in the milt longer than two weeks,
there being an agreement between
the employer and the employee that
a two weeks' notice must bc given
in before any discharges aro made or
any of the men quit work. Satur
day Mr. Krwin notified ?til who were
members of the union to quit at the
expiration of two weeks. A special
meeting of the union was held to
night, at which it is stated l'> new
members joined notwithstanding the
position taken by the mill people.
This makes in all over 800 members
of tho organization and .us till will
have to give up their positions il
means that the mill will have lo
close down for awhile at least. It is
saiil that one-half of the mill will
close down in a day or so and tho
other half will have to close unless
hands are scoured at a very rapid
lt is understood that there an'
two men on the road for the purpose
of getting labor and some of these
new men have .arrived. in nearly
every instance these men have joined
the union before going lo wort, and
the tnalter of pulling down the union
is not being strengthened very
There is no trouble anticipated.
They operatives say that everything
will be done in an orderly manner
and that the men who are given
their walking papers will <piielly
seek other positions and the union
work will go on among those who
take their places.
The Krwin mill is one of thc larg
est in the Stale ami employs about i
OOO or 1,000 hands. There are a
large number of these who are rep
resented by tho 300 who are in the
union, there being several in many
of the families who work in the
mill. The general opinion is that the
whole employment will result in a
shut down of the mill. i
Ku turo developments will be
watched with no little interest by
the people in this section, Those ?
who are joining the union arc not

of people in the State who deserved

Hui the speech w hich he made in

was a gem, abounding in historical
allusions and economic statements in

Kver since cotton became the money
crop in South Carolina, tho fanners
-white and black-have waged an
incessant and merciless warfare
against all manner of grasses. Of
late years a reaction, favorable to
tho healthy being of "General Green"
has set in, and the tip-to date agri
culturalists of the Palmetto State,
awakening to thc fact that we have
an ideal country for stock raising
have in a groat measure made friends
with their old enemy.
This fact was much in evidence
h?re Monday night, when tho first

mal and instructive lecture on the
subject of "(ir-isses," and illustrated
hy sheaves of cured grasses and
grains, prominently displayed upon
the rostrum. As he talked upon the
relative merits of Bormuda and
Texas blue grass, hairy vetch and
cow pens, ho was frequently inter
rupted by interested questioners
whose practical knowledge of the
subject gratified Clemson's agricul
tural chief and showed conclusively
that intelligent inquiry and carne:-!
experiment will in limo put our
State to thc fore as a stock-raising
Yesterday this increase of inter
est in stock-raising was evidenced
by tho unanimity with which the
ilelegatos and visitors accepted tho
invitation extended to them by Prof.

partment of animal husbandry, and
visited and inspected tho big barns
in tho college farm. They admired
