legally dominating and controlling
the cotton seed oil industry of the
South, in violation of th-e Sherman anti-trust
law, made against the Ameri^
can Cotton Seed Oil Company, will be
? laid before the Federal grand jury
^ here Wednesday according to a statement
by District Atorn-ev Alexander
> Akerman tonight.
? ' This alleged trust is held by the
government to own or control subsidiary
corporations in practically
every State of the South and that the.
prices on the products and by products
of cotton seed oil have been ar
bitrarily fixed by the trust in restraint
of trade. Mr. Akerman says there will
be specific charges against the corpo&
r Tbe Buckeye Cotton Seed Oil Com^
pany, the Proctor & Gamble Co., and
, others are the principle subsidiary
^ corporations of the alleged trust,
I while smaller corporations, such as
i the Georgia Cotton Oil Company, the
i Florida Cotton Oil Company are also
held by the government to be con.
trolled by this company.
I An enormous bulk of evidence has
I been secured by the special agents of
the district attorney, who have been
j +v.ic r?r?mr?ration during:
y III V estimating fcuio v/w _ _
the past eighteen months, and it was
said by the district attorney that sensational
developments might be expected.
As to the nature of the evidence,
in the possession of the district
attorney, nothing specific would be
given out, except that he has "half a
trunk full of it."
Witnesses from over the entire cotton
belt, numbering 142, Mr. Akerman
says, have been subpoenaed to appear
before the Federal grand jury here
and are expected to arrive in the city
Wednesday. He expected the grand
jury to have all other matters disposed
of at that time and that it will
be in position to devote its entire time
to this investigation, which will probably
require a full week.

of Selling and Storing
Saluda, April ? i. l. nice, uir
young white man who was arested
here last Saturday night, along with
the "Rev." J. C. Myers, his brotherin-law,
by the rural policemen on the
charge of selling and storing liquors
and who, when arraigned before Magistrate
J. C. Duffie on Monday morning,
pleaded guilty to both charges
and was sentenced, to pay a fine of
$50 or work 30 days for the county,
-crVin failing to raise the fine, im
i auu ?? 0
. mediately entered upon his sentence,
! has received his liberty in a very
j unique way at the hands of the trial
| magistrate. The suggestion was made
to Magistrate Duffie to grant a new
trial and this he has done.
Friday morning the supervisor and
J. B. Davis, a member of the county
j y V A fAr
j board, called.upon tne nwgisuaic ^
an explanation of his conduct in the
mater and it is said that the magistrated
stafecTtnat the young man had
been persuaded to plead guilty by the
i attorney for the county board, W. L.
Daniel. This Mr. Daniel denies. The
magistrate was then told he must set
a day for th-e trial and Tuesday next
| was designated.
i When Price was arraigned the mag!
istrate stated the charges to him and
! took the pleas in writing on the back
; of the warrants and had Price sign
them. Mr. Daniel says he had no con!
nection with these cases as attorney
but only at the request of Price's
father went to the magistrate to get
the lightest sentences under the law.
! Price is just above 21 years of age.
! His brother-in-law, J. C. Myers, who
! was arrested at the same time and
| who gave bond for his appearance on
| Monday morning before the magis!
trate, took leg bail some time Sunday
night and so far he has not been
j heard from. His bondsmen stated
- xU ~
; Monday that he was reaay to pay me
j bond?$200?but would like to have a
few days in which to try to apprehend
Myers. This was granted.
JIM SEIGLER GOES TO PRISON.
Begins Sentence of 7 Tears for Killing
Aik-en, April 7.?James G. Seigler,
charged with the murder here more
than a year ago of Policeman Wade
| Patterson, and convicted of man!
slaughter, and given a seven-year sentence
in the State penintentiary, was
carried to Columbia this afternoon to
! begin his period of servitude.
Seigler, who is one of the best known
men in the county, descendant of one
! of the oldest and best known families,
and himself a prominent farmer, was
tried last year and convicted. His
attorneys appealed for a new trial.
The arguments were made n the supreme
court in January, and last
month this tribunal handed a decision
affirming that of the Aiken court.
Seigler has taken this very hard and
he goes to the State penitentiary a
| broken and humiliated man.
The local authorities were somewhat
; perturbed here this morning when a
; guard, Jennings Mims, from the penitentiary,
asked for the prisoner, and
they refused to deliver Seigler, basing
their refusal, upon the allegation
Mims was too intoxicated tQ take
that Mims was too intoxicated to take
Seigler into his custody. Solicitor
Gunter was conferred with about the
: matter, and advised Sheriff Howard
i ana tnciL wcis iiuunug lkj uu
I deliver him. but that it would be ad!
visable to send an Aiken deputy along
| to keep a "watch over both of them.
I But at midday another gurrd arrived
from Columbia and solved the problem
! for the local authorities by taking
i charge of both men. He stated that
: after Mim's departure from Columbia
s 1 T i-n_
i It was learned uiat ne icn, m au mtoxicated
condition, and the second
?uard -was sent out 011 the next train.
Sheriff Henry H. Howard, who
sternly disapproves any laxity in official
circles, was indignant and very
much wrought up over the entire
thing. He said:
"I want them to send sober men
after my prisoners."

services for the late J. P. Morgan were
held Sunday in St. George's Protestant
Episcopal church, of which lie
was for 45 years a vestryman and in
which his funeral is to take place probably
on April 14. Each worshipper
found in the rack before him a
church bulletin recording the death of
Mr. Morgan who was a regular attendant
and took an active part in the
services, one of his accustomed duties
being the passing of the collection
plate. The pew that he frequently
occupied, although all the
pews in the church are free, was filled
today with strangers.

hymns of which he was fond, including,
"Nearer ,My God to Thee" were
sung by the congregation, while the
choir sang the anthem "Let Not Your
Heart be Troubled." The rector, the
Rev. Dr. Karland, enlogized the late
financier in the sermon. In part he
said: "While I have been speaking

Welcome to Anderson, Red Men,
one and all. You will find that this is
one of the fairest countries that the
foot of the red man ever trod. You
will find that here the red man stopped
to refresh himself in days primei

, of a spring whose founts were of un!
usual sweetness, he here decided to
make his permanent lodge. Today
I there are a great many Red Men of
1 the Improved Order of Red Men, who
have their lodge in Anderson and upj
on their invitation, Red Men of South

Welcome and happy greetings. You

have builded a city in the lands where
I grow the maize in abundance most
j prolific and the hemp and the tlax,

bales. The resources of the forests
and the streams and the cultivated
i lands of And-erson county are comparable
only with the staunchness of the
hearts of her people /<nd to show
j that we mean a hearty welcome, Red
i Men, we will tell a few things that

This order was reorganized in 1S31
from survivors of various societies ol
Red Men going back to l"63, and is a
ifraternal benevolent so:-'- y. It is the
i oldest charitable and benevolent so
1 ciety in America based on aboriginal
traditions and customs. There are
nearly 5,400 tribes and councils, with
a property investment of $6,500,000
and a membership of ovcr 510,000.
The receipts of the rrreat council
of the United States rnn olose to $45,j

annual report shows that *"l,014,00(
