ing to Take Negra From Jail
No Attack Made.
Laurens, Nov. 30.-It developed to
day that Sheriff Owings was late last:
night called on at the county jail by
a delegation of citizens and inforrmed
that plans had been completed for
making an assault on the jail, if neces
sary, and taking therefrom the negro
boy, Robert Moody, and stringing him
up for alleged attempted criminal as-!
sault on two young girls the evening!
before in the vicinity of Watts' Cotton
mills. The sheriff was told that a
body of 100 men had assembled a few
hundred yards distant and that as
couriers they had come to put hin
on notice of their intention and deter
mination. Sheriff Owings received the
notice as "information" and then sug-1
gested that he be given time to get
his family safely out of the way and
then he would be prepared for all
comers. The men left and nothing
Sheriff Owings and his men are be
ing commended on their good judg
ment and quick work, and all who

ABOLISH HOSIERY MILL.
State Board of Health Will So Urge
In Report to Legislature.
Reiterating its former position that
the hosiery mill at the State peniten
tiary is not a proper place for the em
pioyinent of convicta and that the in
stitutio4 is a nuisance, deleterious to
the health of those who work in it and
dangerous to the -ommunity into
which the convicts go after being dis
charged from their s_entences, the
State board of health, at a meeting I
held Friday afternoon and night,
adopted a report which will carry to
the general assembly of 1912 the rec
ommendation that the hosiery mill be
According to a statement by State
Health Officer J. Adams Hayne, Satur
day morning, the board made a care
ful inspection of the penitentiary Fri
day afternoon, and although the place
has been much improved by the car
rying out of the former sanitary sug
gestions of the board, the board did
-not see fit to withdraw from its for
mner position that the hosiery mill is
A number of matters of more or less
routine importance were transacted by
the board, including the hearing of re
ports of the officers, and the letting of
some contracts for me furniThing of
antitoxin for the coming year, and
other matters. Among otl'er things,
the board adopted a resolution carry
ing the opinion that the Great Branch
Fishery pond, at Orang-eburg, was a
public nuisance, and should be put in
a sanitary condition. This action was
taken after the consideration of peti
tions from both sides of the question, tl
and upon the basis of personal inspec- F
*tions which have be-En made by mem- d
hers of the board in the recent past. c
The Hosiery Mill.
The board's' action on the hesiery
mill is probably the matter of most e
public interest in donnection with the v
;neeting Friday night. It will be re
miembered that Governor Bleas-e de-;e
Itounced th-e hosiery mill as a nuis- 3
ance, and declared that it should be v
abolished, on the ground that it was b
a breeding place, for tuberculosis n
germs. Following an inspection of the y
penitentiary by the State bor.rd of fi
health, during the spring, a number o
-of recommendations were made by ly
that body, as to improvements at th~isir
A different view of the matter wasc
taken by the- grand jury of Richland y
county, which made a personal inspec- t h
tion of the penitentiary- and hosiery
mill- recently, at the request of the li
presiding judge, and returned a report p
entirely favorable to the penitentiary ci
and the hosiery mill. c
"The board made a careful inspec- p:
tion of the penitentiary yesterday af-! al
ternoon," said Dr. Hayne, secretary of
the board, Saturday morning, "and
found that many of our suggestions as
to inaprovement,s have been complied IL
'with. The place. has been rendered
far more sanitary than at our for xier
'visit. However, the board did not see
it to withdraw from its former posi
tion that the hosiery mill is a nuis- o
ance, that it is not a fit place for the d
employment of convicts, that it is ti
deleterious to the health of the con- S
Ticts 'working in it, and that it is a e
menace to the comnmuniities into which tl
the convicts go after being discharged, V
since they carry with them the germs. 0

Dr. Hayne emphasized the fact that i
