Flashes from tho Diamond.
Hocond nlnos of Laurens and Spartan

The Bastorn Building & Loan Association.
In another column appears an expla
nation or tbo "Eastern" Building and
Loan Association, of Syracuse, N. Y.
There aro points in the scheme or this
association which, it seems to tho editor
or this paper, distinguish It from othor
lending concerns of the kind.
Onelstbattbo borrower knows what
ho is doing,!, o., that when he has paid*
bis notes for 78 months, he has paid bis
debt and the mortgage be has given is
satisfied. Othor associations that we
know of "ostlmate" tbe time when tho
dobt will be paid and the borrower "goes
it blind." Iu tbe second place this asso
ciation contracts to grant the borrower
his loan while numerous associations
iuto which our people have ventured
heretofore have railed in their fai r prom
ises to do as much. There Is a vast dl f
forenoe betwoen a legal contract and a
profusion or good intentions.
In tho third placo, the power and wil
lingness or this Association to do what it
olaims is vouched for by leading busi
ness men of Darlington and other towns
whose responsibility and character are
well known in tbe State,
Now the Advkrtisbr does not set it
self up as a Bradstreel's agenoy and
advitjes nobody to go into this or any
association until after tljey havw given
it thorough Investigation themselves.
But we do not hesitate to say that
there are many reasons why It should
recoivo tbe attention of our business
community and that an association
which has oyidently done much for
jMiiington might also do tbe same for
Capt. .1. It- M inter oommonced the or
ganization by taking 100 shares.

What tho littigation Means to
Laurena?Au Interview With
Mr. N. B. Dial.
Tho people or this section of the state
and paiticutarlyof this oounty are deeply
Interested In the reoeut litagation with
regard to the Port Royal and Western
Carolina and with tho viow of obtain
ing some Information as to how they
will be affeoted an Advbiitibku repor
ter soukht an interview with Mr. N. B.
Dial. Mr. Dial is ono of tho attorneys
In the case and it was at his suggestion
that tho fight against Receiver Comer
and the Georgia Central was originally
Inaugurated at tho meeting of stock
holders hold in Augusta in May when
tho Central stock was not allowed to be
voted und Receiver Combr was forcod to
secede from the meeting. It should be
rememberod that Laurens has stock in
the road to the amount of one huudred
and fifty thousand dollars, twlco as
much as any othor county.
In roply to a question as to what iod
to tho recent litigation against tho Cen
tral, Mr. Dial said:
"You know some of us wore uovor in
favor of a complete consolidation of the
roads composing tho "Port Royal & Wes
tern Carolina'' system and wero espec
ially dissatisfied with the way tbo Cen
tral mortgaged them,?hence I bad often
been asked by tax payers to seo If some
thing could not be done to better our
condition; to give tboso counties and
oltles the competition which they bad
bought and paid for. Thereforo in Fob
ruary last 1 had a conversation with Mr.
S. J. Simpson, of Spartanburg in rogard
to tho interest or this part oi'the state,
and we docidcd to mako tho fig .t. Wo
wore elected among others to reprosent
tho stock of this and Spartanburg coun
ties at tbo mooting of stockholders
which was held in Augusta May Dili.
At that meoting tho stockboldors wero
apprised of tholr rights and wore deter
mined to act for the best interests of tbo
parties who had built tbo road and to
rofuso to sit qnlotly by and lot tbo Con
tral pooplo elocta board of directors who
wore in sympathy with them.
In fact the Central poople bad no
standing in tho meeting whatovor, did.
not legally represent a singlo sharo of
stock. The parties roprosonting tbo ma
jority of tho logal slock olooted a board
of directors who wore in full sympathy
with tho people who built tbo road and
who are largely interested in tbo devel
opment of this part of South Carolina
and of Augusta and whoso policy would
not be controlled by computing lines.
At this mooting a resolution was passed
requesting tho President and board of
directors to resist tbo foroclosuro of tbo
mortgage of $2,500,000 over tbo property
and to demand an accounting of the
Central. Tbo board immediately organ
ized and mado a wisocboico by electing
Col. Dyor of Augusta, president. Tlioy
also employed attomoys who at onco in
torvoned tho forcclosuro suit and bad
tho logal hoard and tho counties mado
parties. Mr. Comer had appeared and
had virtually consented to foroclosuro
and you can roadlly hoo that bad a ro
ceivor of tholr own chooslug boon ap
pointed and tbo road sold our atock
would havo been completely lost. On
tbo contrary wo havo a receiver who in
eminently qualified to tako caro of tho
interests of all parties concerned.
"Mr. Dial, are you of ibo opinion that
tbo appointment of Mr, Cleveland will
prove satisfactory to tbo pcoplo of Lau
rens?" askod tho roportor. "Certainly,''
ho ropllod, "Mr. Cleveland's appoint
ment will not only bo accoptablo to tbo
pooplo of Laurens but all tbo citizens of
this section of tho stato will bo delighted
with it; also tbo people ot Augusta will
bo much pleased because thoy as well as
wo bavo causo to complain of tbo Cen
"What will bo tbo immediate effect of
the appointment?" -?
"Wo will have bettor scbcdulos; tho
road will bo more oconomioally run, wo
will havo through froights and bettor
ones. Tho road will do moro business
5nd will be moro popular with tho poo
ple. They wll feol that they aro patron
izing their own proporty. Heretofore
tho Central would not make through
rates for froight coming over other
roads to certain points in this torritory.
Then as to economy, at present our
road pays onormous interest to tho Cen
tral for tho biro of locomotives, otc. and
pays a good deal moro than its sharo of
tho terminal facilities in Augusta. Tho
Central pcoplo bavo boon awako while
wo slept. That Is thoy had the
stock which thoy hold In tho "Au
gusta and Knoxvllle" amounting to
about ?8T),000 included In tbo mortgage
when ours was loft out. In addition to
this, making tho road independent will
afford a splendid opportunity for a road
to be built through tbo mountains to
Knoxvllle or Chatanooga."
"What do you think will bo tho rosult
of tho litigation, Mr. Dial?"
"Wo Will wait and seo after wo havo
had our reckoning with tho Central. No
doubt tho leaso will bo broken, a largo
amount of the bonds bo dcclarod Invalid
and our stock will bo of value,"
