There were only six jury case3 tried
during the week, but some of them
were of considerable importance and of
decided interest, and while the progress
was slow the Court was kept busy.
In the case of L. T. Madden & Co.,
vs Phoenix Assurance Company, the
jury after being out all night failed to
agree and a mistrial was ordered.
In the case of Tom Crisp vs. Charles
ton & Western Carolina Railroad, the

There remains on the calendars not
less than one hundred and fifty cases
yet to be disposed of. Of this number
there will be at least one hundred to
go before a jury.
The ten circuit bill did not pass too
soon for Laurens.
Ten Circuit Bill a Law, and Hon. R. A.
Cooper may be the Solicitor of the
Very few bills of special interest to
this county have been handled by the
General Assembly during the past v/eek.
A bill causing considerable comment,
is that allowing a private corporation
the right of condemnatory proceedings
to acquire private property. The frienc's
of the bill contend that while the cor
poration in question is a private one its
purpose is the development of property
which will inure to the public good and
in fact a public one.
The ten circuit bill will become a law.
To form the circuits the counties have
been so grouped that no judge or solici
tor will be thrown out of a job. The
following is the new arrangement:
First Circuit: Charleston, Colletonand
Second Circuit: Rerkeley, George
town, Dorchester and Orangeburg.
Third Circuit: Hampton, Aiken, Bam
berg, Barnwell and Edgefield.
Fourth Circuit: Clarendon, Florence,
Lee, Sumtor and Williamsburg.
Fifth Circuit: Chesterfield, Darling
ton, Ilorry, Marion and Marlboro.
Sixth Circuit: Kershaw, Lexington,
Richland and Saluda.
Seventh Circuit: Chester, Fairfield,
Lancaster and York.
Eighth Circuit: Cherokee, Spartan
burg and Union.
Ninth Circuit: Abbeville, Greenwood,
. jaurens and Newberry
Tenth Circuit: Anderson, Greenville,
Pickens and Oconee.
As Judge Klugh is a resident of Ab
beville there will be no election for
judge of the ninth circuit, but there will
be for solicitor, and Hon. R. A. Cooper
is spoken of as a formidable candidate
for that office.

Boston, Feb. 2.? For the first time

when Richmond was captured," said
Gen. Miles. "He did not surrender
with Lee and Johnson, but it was his
intention, and he admits it in his own

Mississippi so that he could join the

continue the war.
"He was sent to Fortress Monroe to

placed on Davis. He knocked over a

The anklets were kept on live days
only, while a wooden door was being
removed and an iron grated one sub
"The anklets gave Davis no pain
and did not prevent him from walking.
Mr. Davis at the time was 56 years
old, strong and agile. Letters to me
from Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Clay prove
that I treated Mr. Davis with all the
kindness that could be shown him un

that he was maltreated or his health

Townships to Send Dele
gates to County
A Strong Appeal lo Every Fanner in
Laurens County to Lend His Indiv
idual Effort to the Reduction of Cot
ton Acreage, Thus Bcnefitting Him
self, While Helping Others.
To carry into operation for perma
nent relief and protection for the fu
ture, a plan of organization adopted hy
the Interstate Cotton Convention, and
agreeably to tho call of Hon. Richard
Singleton, Vice President for South
Carolina, and Hon. E. D. Smith of the
National Executive Committee, the
several Townships are hereby called to
meet at 2 p. m., Saturday, February
llth to organize?
I: By the election of a President,
Secretary and Treasurer, an Executive
Committee and a Committee of three
on acreage and membership.
II: The Township Association to
elect two delegates to attend the meet
ing of the County Association, which
meets Saturday, February 18th.
Ill: Farmers and landowners shall be
asked to sign tho following agreement:
"We the undersigned farmers or land
owners living in-? Township,
Laurens County. S. ('., hereby pledge
ourselves to reduce the acreage planted
by us in cotton and to reduce our con
sumption of fertilizers in growing cot
ton as shown by the statement set op*
posit e our names. "
IV: The Committee on acreage and
membership shall immediately canvass
said Township and ask all farmers and
landowners who do not attend said
meeting to sign said pledge, and said
Committee shall return said pledge to
the Chairman of the Township.
V. Said Township Chairman shall
preserve said pledges, and they shall
immediately report lo the County
Chairman showing tho total number of
acres planted in cotton in said Town
ship in 1904, and the total number to
be plainted in cotton in 1905; the total
amount of fertilizers used in growing
cotton in said Township in 1904 and tho
total amount to be used in 1905.
VI: To minimize Iho labor, to ensure
the canvassing of every foot of terri
tory, tlx- collection of tho required
data, and the securing of enrollment
and pledges, all of which are of vital
importance to this movement, let sub
committees on acreage and member
ship be appointed, by the Township
Chairman, for every School District.
VII: Each member is required to pay
the small fee of cents to be paid to
the Treasurer, one-half of which will
be sent up to the Treasurer of the
The following named gentlemen have
been appointed to organize their re
spectivo Townships: Laurens, O. G.
Thompson; Youngs, W. P. Harris;
Dial, A. C. Owings; Sullivan, IL B.
Humbert; Waterloo, J. H. Wharton;
fro.-s Hill, W. B. Fuller; Hunter, R.
P. Aduir; Jacks, J. C. McMillan, Scuf
fletown, 0. P. Goodwin.
The people of ovory section are urged
to attend these meetings and organize.
Conditions now confrontus, tho gravity
of which cannot be easily overdrawn.
Doubt, dallying or hesitation now,
would be doubly disastrous. No one is
asked to immolate himself upon tho al
tar of his country, but all are called
upon to join hands in one supreme ef
fort to avert threatened bankruptcy
and ruin. Sentiments of self preserva
tion and patriotism alike appeal to our
countrymen thai present systems and
conditions must no longer continue.
Nevor before has there been an ef
fort along this line that has assumed
such magnitude, or that has shown a
tithe of such unanimity. Already its
effects have been shown in a marked
degree. In a few days tiie machinery
of a mammoth organization will be in
complete working order throughout the
vast domain of the cotton grow ing re
gions of the South.
Until a more perfect organization is
perfected let everj man realize that,
there are three proposition that must
obtain: First, hold surplus of thiti crop
until prices got to mormal conditions.
Second, a reduction of acreage and
fertilizers, 25 per cent; Third, a system
of storing cotton, so as to obtain ad
vances wherever needed,
