Another Older in Laurens
Federal Judge Hands Down Order Re*
straining President Lucas from Pro
ceeding Further in State Courts.
A8HBVILLE, Oct. 7th.?Judge J. C.
Pritchard, of the United States Court,
to-day made an order in the case of S.
M. Milliken and others against W. E.
Lucas and others, granting an injunc
tion restraining the Defendants from
proceeding further in the State Courts
of South Carolina, and with interfering
with Milliken and others in the Laurens
Cotton Mill case. Judge Pritchard's
order briefly reviews the progress of
the cause, beginning with the action
instituted in the Court of Common
Pleas, of Laurens County, by William
E. Lucas, in May. 1905, which action
resulted in an order of injunction re
straining Milliken and others from vot
ing stock at the approaching meeting
of the stockholders of said corporation.
Subsequently W. W. Ball, F. J. Pelzer,
T. R. McGahan and William M. Bird,
on their own petition, were made par
ties defendant in that action, and they
appeared therein and joined the plain
tiff in demanding the relief sought in his
In due time the defendants appeared
and answered, and, by filing proper pe
tition for removal and bond, had the
cause removed from the State Court,
and gave notice of a motion to dissolve
the injunction, which had been pre
viously granted in the State Court.
The plaintiff, Lucas, met this motion
with a motion to be heard at the same
time, to remand the cause to the State
Court. Both of these motions were
heard before His Honor, Judge Braw
ley, who thereafter filed a decree re
fusing to remand the cause and dissolv
ing the injunction.
The order issued to-day says further:
"Milliken and others complaining in
this action then began this proceeding,
which is ancillary to the original cause
mentioned for the purpose of restrain
ing the defendants from taking any fur
ther proceedings in the said original
cause in the State Court arid asking
the judgment of this Court that they
were entitled without interference by the
defendants to call a stockholders'
meeting of the Laurens Cotton Mills
for the purpose of electing directors
for that corporation for the present
"Upon the institution of the proceed
ing a rule was issued by this Court re
quiring the defendants to show cause
why the injunction prayed for should
not be granted. The defendants have
filed their several returns, and the
questions at issue were heard before
me at Ashevilb;, N. C, on the 15th and
16th of September.
"The Court, having considered the
matters at issue, is of opinion that the
complainants are entitled to the relief
demanded in the first paragraph of the
"As to the matters referred to in the
second paragraph of the prayer of re
lief of the bill, the Court is of the opin
ion that it has no jurisdiction thereof,ex
cept to the extent of restraining the
defendants from taking or instituting
any other or further proceedings in
said cause in the State Court.
"It is therefore, ordered, adjudged
and decreed that the defendants be and
such of them is hereby enjoined and
restrained from proceeding further with
the trial of the original cause hereinbe
fore mentioned in the State Court, and
from taking any other or further pro
cceeings of any nature whatsoever
therein, in said Court.
"Let copies of this order be forth
with served upon the defendants."

CITIZEN OF DIALS
LODGED IN JAIL.
John M. Abcrcromble is Charged With
Assaulting Magistrate P. M. Hel
iums Last Friday.
John M. Abcrcromble of Dials town
ship was committed to jail Saturday af
ternoon on a warrant charging him with
assault and battery with intent to kill.
The warrant under which Abercrombie
was arrested charges him with making
an assault upon Morgan Gwinn with a
deadly weapon and was issued by Mag
istrate Pierce M. Hellams after nr him
self had been brutally assaulted by the
same man. So instead of one indict
ment under the same charge there will
According to the accounts of tho af
fair it seems that Abercrombie had
tried to get Magistrate Hellams in his
official capacity to assist him in regain
ing possession of Iiis children who wore
living with their mother from whom
Abercrombie had been separated for a
month or more. Failing in this, it ap
pears that Abercrombie then notified
Hellams to stop employing his children
to pick cotton. This all took place two
or three weeks ago, it seems.
Friday afternoon Abercrombie colled
at Magistrate Hellams' home ami after
exchanging a few words Mr. Hellams,
believing that lie was about to be at
tacked, retreated and enteret! an ad
Hellnms' purpose, entered at an
other door and cut Hellams off before
he could reach his gun. Abercrombie
seized Hellams, pushed him up against
the door facing and otherwise assaulted
him before Mrs. Hellams and a Mr.
Curry, the latter who happened to be
passing, interferred and prevailed upon
Abercrombie to leave. Finally he agreed
to go. After leaving Mr. Hellams he
came upon Morgan Gwlnn, who was
picking cotton near the road. Without
a word of warning Abercrombie is said
to have deliberately fired upon Gwinn
with a rifle which he had with him when
he called at Magistrate Hellams. He
missed his mark, however, and Gwinn
is said to have lost no time in getting
out of range of other possible shots. To
a reporter of THE ADVERTISER Aber
crombie stated his side of the affair, but
admitted that he was drinking some and
was not in a very happy frame of mind
when he got to Magistrate Hellams Fri
Sheriff Duckett and Deputy Sullivan
went up late Friday night and early
Saturday morning Abercrombie was lo
cated in the field picking cotton. At
first he said he wouldn't go with the of
ficers, but would come down and sur
render in a few days. The sheriff re
minded him that he had a warrant and
that he must come along with him.
Mr. Abercrombie is a native of Dials
and has a large connection throughout
this section. Until about a year ago be
had lived in Greenville for sometime,
having moved to that city about 10 years
ago. He is fifty years old and has a
wife and six children. Ho seems to be
greatly attached to his children and is
distressed because he has to be sep
arated from them.

LAURENS BAPTIST ASSOCIATION.
Some Notes in the Baptist Press by Rev.
V. I. Masters.
Brothor W. H. Drummond of Lan
ford, has attended the association for
twenty consecutive years with one ex
ception. Brother Drummond had a
hard timo getting off from Court duties
at Laurens to be present at Mt. Olive,
but he did it. He is a stalwart, manly,
warm-hearted, devoted Christian. Long
may he live and do good in Laurens as
The absence of Revs. E. C. Watson
and M. C. Compton from the gathering
on account of sickness in their families
was very much regretted. The asso
ciation offered prayer for the recovery
of the sick.
On the way to and return from the
association some of us were most cor
dially and pleasantly entertained in the
home of Col. J. H. Wharton at Water
loo. Col. Wharton turned a nice turn
out over to Dr. Bailey and myself for
the trip and contributed much to its
pleasure. The Colonel is a gentleman
of most amiable and ooliging disposition
and is a Baptist faithful to his Church
duties. The man who may aspire in
the next campaign to beat Col. Whar
ton for the office of railway commis
sioner, which he now holds, will have
no easy job, and will likely fail. The
reason is that the winning ways which
candidates assume when seeking elec
tion are normal to Col. Wharton, and
he is a good officer besides.
With Dr. Bailey and other friends I
was entertained at the association by
Paster James O Martin, and most
pleasantly. Bro. Martin is a very
prstor and an excellent man. The peo
ple love him.
Brother C. B. Bobo and C. H. Roper
were unable to be present at the meet
ing on the first day. But they were on
hand the second; Bro. Roper in time to
do his busy work as treasurer and lend
himself to the success of the gathering,

EFFECTED HIS ESCAPE.
Young While Man Confined in Laurens
Jail Escaped, but was Recaptured.
Last Thursday afternoon about B
o'clock it was discovered that John M.
Marccy, the Canadian, who was sent up
from Clinton two weeks ago on a va
grancy charge for 30 days, had made
his escape from jail. On Saturday
Marccy was arrested in Sparlanburgby
the police. Sunday afternoon the pri
soner was brought back to the Laurens
jail by Deputy Sheriff Sullivan, who
went up for him Saturday night.
Marcey escaped from prison by tear
ing away some of the overhead ceiling
and climbing through to the bay win
dow, a portion of which he removed,
thence to the jail yard by the use of
Iiis blankets which he had torn into
strips. The sheriff and members of
his family happened to be absent at the
time and no one saw the fellow escap
ing. Every effort was made to recap
ture Marcey that evening and the next
day descriptions of the man were seid
out in every direction, with the result
that he was picked up in Spartanburg.
Marcey is a suspicious character.
When arrested in Clinton two weeks
ago he had on bis person a map of the
town and a complete diagram of Bai
ley's Hank. He made the drawings
himself. A negro noticed him and re
ported the fact to the officers. A va
grancy charge was preferred and
Marcy was sent up for a short term.
He says he is from Canada and is a
plumber by trade. The general opinion
is that he belongs to a gang of bank
burglars who have been operating in
this State for the last two years. He
is about 21 years old.
