THE COURT HOUSE.
The location of the court house
was the main topic of conversation
by the people who came to town on
Saturday. We heard very few who
approved the location selected and yet
one gentleman who has been active
in commending the action of the com
mission told us that he had heard sev
eral hundred say it was the best place
in town. So there you have it.
So far as we are concerned we can
not understand how anyone who is
disinterested can approve the selec
If any individual were going to
spend a good sum to build him a
handsome residence he would want a
site upon which he could erect a
building that would and could be
seen before you got right at it. Es
pecially should this be the case with
a public building.
Our position is that in the selec
tion of a site the e~ommission should
not have been governed by the one
that cost the least money but should
have gotten such a one as would be
best suited for the purposes of a pub
lic building, not only looking at the
present, but with a view to the fu
ture. And if none of the sites offer
ered met these requirements then
another place should have been
taken if it could have been procured
even though it was not offered.
Then there are those who think
there should be no court house built

He took the days. He claimed to be

nothing of him.

LUCAS-MILLIKEN FIGHT ENDS.
A Satisfactory Solution of the Issues
Involved Has Been Reached in
Fight for Laurens and Dar
lington Mills' Control.
The State of Sunday contained the
following in reference to the dispute
between Lucas and Milliken for con
trol of the Laurens Mill property:
The hard fought fight between the
Milliken interests and the Lucas fac
tion has been settled, it is authorita
tively announced, and there has been
reached an agreement as to the
Laurens and the Darlington cotton
mills, for the control of which the
contest has waged for nearly a year.
It is stated1 that an agreement has
been reached by representatives of
Milin-and LuATas by which Millkn
and his associates ,gree to purchase
the stock of Lucas and his associates
in both the Laurens and the Darling
ton mills. The price to be paid for
the Laurens mill stock is said to be
$170 per share of par value of $100
and market value of $160. The agreed
price for Darlington stock is to be
$65 per share, quoted at $50 on the
This will mean the retirement of
Mr. Lucas from the management of
these two properties and the control
of both of them by Ir. Milliken and
his associates. The origin and issues
involved in the fight for the control
of the two mills are familiar to the
reading public, as much has been pub
lished concerning the matter within
the last few months. There arose a
disagreement as to policy between
Mr. W. E. Lucas, president and or
ganizer of both the mills, and the
members of the firm of Deering, Mil
liken & Co., who held large blocks of
stock in the concerns. It was claimed
by Mr. Lucas that the Millikens de
sired to obtain control of the proper
ties in order to continue the sale of
the products through their firm as
commission merchants when Mr. Lu
cas Had found that he could sell his
goods to better advantage through
another firm, which charged a small
er commission. There were charges
and counter-charges on this line and
the matter has been taken into both
the state and federal courts, with in
junctions and so forth from both
sides. Now the dispute is settled to
the seeming advantage of both sides,
since Mr. Lucas, while he loses control
of the mills, will obtain for the stock
the prices he demanded last year
from the Milliken faction. Mr. Lu
cas is also president of the Watts
mill, which is not involved in this
controversy, and it is likely that he
will devote his entire time to that con
cern, whicn is of itself a splendid
property. Mr. Lucas has been in ill
health for some time, but has recently
been reported better.
The annual meeting of the Laurens
mill stockholders is held in May, but
a meeting has been called for next
Friday morning at 10 o'clock. It is
understood that the agreement now
reached between the two factions will
be ratified at this meeting, which will
be held in the offices of the Laurens
mill at Laurens. The articles of agree
ment were drafted yesterday at a
meeting held in Spartanburg, Messrs.
Miliken and Hatch of the Milliken
firm and several of the attorneys rep
resenting both sides being present.
