FALL MEETING OF
A. R. P. PRESBYTERY
It was Hold at Oia Last
The Presbytery Embraces Churches in
Several Counties in This State and
a Few in Georgia and Florida.
Ora, Oct. 17th-The Second Presby
tery of the Associate Presbyterian
Churcb, which met with the Church at
Ora on last Friday and Saturday had a
very pleasant and successful meeting.
The Presbytery embraces the Churches
in Anderson, Abbeville, Newberry,
Greenwood, Laurens and Spartanburg
counties in this State and also a few
Churches in Georgia and one in Florida.
There were twenty-seven delegates
present, seventeen ministers and ten
The reports that came up from the
Churches evidenced a good degree of
progress in all departments of Church
work. There was a net gain in mem
bership of seventy-seven. This was
not so large as in 1904, but yet indi
cated a steady growth. The contribu
tions to home and foreign missions
amounted to something more than
$3,000. This does not include what was
given by Ladies' and Children's Socie
ties. It is about $1.50 per member?
not as much as we should give by a
great deal. It might be said that there
have been many individual gifts to
missions that would swell the $3,000
considerably, not included in the Church
reports. A call from Bartow, Fla.,
was presented to Rev. W. A. M. Plaxco
of Clinton. It is Mr. Plaxco's purpose
to accept this call at an early date. A
call also was presented to R. A. Lum
mus, now in charge of the Church in
Anderson, from that congregation. It
is not known whether he will accept.
It was arranged to settle Rev. J. P.
Snipes over two Churches in Anderson
county. It is expected that Rev. A.
J. Ranson will continue in the work in
Spartanburg and at Woodruff.
The congregation at Ora enjoyed the
preaching of the brethren from Thurs
day night through the Sabbath.
There were two sermons each day, at
11 a. m. and at 7.30 p. m.. There were
fine congregations, the church being
filled on Saturday and Sabbath. There
w re a number present from Laurens,
Woodruff and Clinton.

was the moderator. The next meeting
will be held at Head Spring, Laurens
county, and the moderator is Rev. N. E.

DKATH OP DR. J. R. RILBY.
Was Pastor of the Laurens Presbyterian
Church For Many Years.
Dr. John It. Hiley, for many years a
resident of this city and pastor of the
Presbyterian Church, died at Brevard,
N. C, on Monday, Oct. 9. The funeral
and burial took place at Brevard on
1 Tuesday. Dr. Riley was 76 years old
I and is survived by Mrs. A. E. Brown of

Dr. Riley was a devout Christian and
a very able preacher. During bis min?
isterinl career of more than forty years
he was pastor of the Laurens Presby
j terian Church for a period of about 18
years, having succeeded the Rev. Mr.

The special social event of the past
week was Miss Emmie Meng's enter

day afternoon, which was a very charm
ing affair and attended by almost all of ,
the members, though the long hoped
for downpour of rain came unfortu

tertainments are always characterized
by a delightful and informal hospitality
and her friends are consequently eager
to accept her invitations.
Mrs. C. L. Poole was called to Green
ville county on Sunday on account of
the death of Guy Davenport, her
nephew, who died early Sunday morning
at his father's home nearChandler as the
result of an accident suffered Saturday.
It seems that while working about one
of the gins, one of his hands was
caught in the saws and before the ma
chinery could be stopped his arm was
crushed and terribly lacerated to the
shoulder. He received prompt medical
attention, but the terrible shock and
great loss of blood proved fatal, de
spite the efforts of the physicians' skill

Effect of Judge Pritchard's Recent Order
in Laurens Cotton Mill
The following statement concerning
the recent decision of Judge Pritchard
in the Milliken-Lucas contest has been
given out by local counsel for President
"The Millikens sought on the motion
before Judge Pritchard to accomplish
three thing3. First, to enjoin and re
strain Lucas from taking any further
action in State court. Second, to en
join and restrain Lucas from interfer
ing in any manner whatever with call
ing a meeting of stockholders of Lau
rens cotton mills by the Millikens for
the purpose of electing a legal board of
directors for Laurens mills to serve
the present year, and from interfering
with the right of the Millikens to hold
their stock in Laurens mills at such
meeting; and third, Lucas was required
to show cause why pending the holding
of such meeting, the affairs of the mill
should not be managed and controlled
by the old board of directors elected in
May, 1904. In other words to get the
court to hold that the meeting which
elected Lucas, in May, 1905, was in
valid. Judge Pritchard granted the re
lief prayed for in the first paragraph of
the pruyoivcontained in Millikcn's com
plaint, and he onjoins, by his decree,
Lucas from taking any further pro
ceedings in the State court. As to the
relief asked for by the Millikens, Judge
Pritchard held that he had no jurisdic
tion. That is, that he had no right to
enjoin Lucas from interfering with the
meeting of the stockholders, and that
he had no right to put out the new
board ami put in the old board. In
other words, he had no jurisdiction to
pass upon the validity of the election
held in May, 1905, nor to take any ac
tion in reference to any stockholders'
meeting, contemplated by the Milli
kens. This decision of Judge Pritch
ard's is simply in line with Judge Braw
ley's decree, in which he (Brawlcy)
held that the action brought by Lucas
against the Millikens had been trans
ferred to the United States court and
must be tried there.
"The only effect of Judge Pritchard's
order is to prevent Lucas from pro
ceeding to try his ease in the State
court, but has no effect whatever upon
the possession of the cotton mill by
Lucas and his present board of direc
"Lucas and his present board of di
rectors are still in possession and will
iikoly remain in possession until they
arc put out by proper legal proceed
"Lucas contends that the stockhold
ers' meeting held in May of this year
was a legal and valid meeting and that
he and his board of directors v/i re
elected, until May, 190G. Judge Pritch
ard refused to pass upon this question,
for the reason that his court, 'a Court
of equity,' had no jurisdiction to pass
upon the validity of the election and
then try the question of title to office.
"In the meantime Lucas'action must
be tried upon its merits, appeal, after
appeal can be taken by whatever side
looses, and the case will not likely stop
short of the supreme court of the Uni
ted States. The attorneys think that
the case has just gotten good started.
The decision of Judge Pritchard, in
stead of bering a victory for the Milii
kens, is regarded by those in position to
know, as a victory for Lucas."
