COL. W. H. MARTIN
HAS PASSED AWAY
Died in Asheville Friday
AFTER LONG ILLNESS.
Was Useful and Promi
He was Oue of the Leading Civil Law
yers of Upper Carolina?Tho
Col. Williamson H. Martin of this
olty died in Asheville, N. O, Friday
afternoon. Col. Martin was one of the
leaders of the Laurens bar. He was in
his 52nd year. Ho had been in ill health,
suffering from a complication of dis
eases for the past six months and in
February was desperately ill with
pneumonia. He also suffered a stroke
of paralysis some months ago, but had
recovered sufficiently to return to his
office. With Mr3. Martin and theJ
youngest of his two sons he went to
Asheville about a week ago.
Col. Martin was a native of Laurens
county; a member of an old and promi
nent family. In early life ho was a
merchant, but about 22 years ago
studied law in the ofilce of tho late
Col. It. P. Todd, with whom he later
formed a partnership, succeeding to
the whole practice upon Col. Todd's
death. His practice was for the most
part confined to the civil side of the
courts and he was eminently success
ful. He thoroughly mastered his cases
and tho justices of the supreme court
had a high opinion of his ability. He
was never active in politics, though
his alignment on the conservative side
of public issues was always well known.
He was a member of Gov. McSweoney's
stall. Since its organization in 18S7 he
has been a director of the Poople's
Loan and Exchange Bank, one of the
largest of the financial institutions
here, and his sagacity as an advisor
was valuable to It. He was also one of
the largest local subscribers in the
building of the Laurens Cotton Mills,
but had sold his shares in that com
pany some time before his death. He
was an active figure in other smallor
corporations that have aided in tho de
velopment of the city and county.
Col. Martin's homo in Main street
was one of the handsomest in Laurens
and a few months before his death he
1 ad greatly Improved It. Hl6 imme
diate family consists of his wife and
Iwo sons. While his friends bad de
spaired of his recovery for some time,
his death comes as a great shock, for
he has been out down in the fullness of
a successful career.
The body arrived from Asheville at
2 o'clock Saturday and the funeral took
placa Sunday afternoon, brief sorvices
being conducted at the grave by Rev.
W. S. Holmes of the Episcopal Church,
assisted by Rjv. J. D. Pitts of the Bap

tho county and state.
He was recently elected a member of

What nrmy was tho strongest of its

as complete as and possibly more prac

It was based on a territorial system
Which maintained the comradeship of
locality Without bringing It into an
tagonism with that of tho corps, for
each of the thirty-five Roman "tribes"
was required to furnish to each legion
four "centuries" of 120 men, each of
which worked together as a local unit.
Tho legion was divided Into five co
horts or battalions, of which three
