LAURl-NS:^. C, Dec. 20, 1905.
An Invitatio^ to Mr. Dial.
The News and Courier of last Friday
contained the following^ommunication:
To the Editor of Tin" tS^Ks anil Courier:
Returning to Smith flBkui after a
week's absence, my^^fcc?ion is
brought to a letter of Mr.^^ML Dial,
of Laurcns, published Decernner 7, in
which he refers to my expressions about
the Laurens Mill controversy, and em
ploys innuendo which means, if it
means anything, that my relationship
to the matter prevents me from speak
ing or wvi ng without bias. At the
same time 'r. Dial naively points to
his own ab. ty to separate himself in
writing us a itizen from himself as a
Milliken atto. ey.
My relation:, ip to the controversy is,
first, that of small stockholder, i
have sucli tman al interest as Col. J.
D. M. Shaw a. ' Mr. Bell and Mr.
Madden and Mr. L nmons. None of us
expects lawyer's L s or other prefer
ment. We are in iK.oody's pay.
In the second place I have an abiding
friendship for Mr. Lucas, of long stand
ing, grounded on a firm belief in his
honesty and manliness, If I am what
Mr. Dial calls "Mr. Lucas's press
agent," Mr. Dial woll knows that only
th??se considerations have driven me to
that attitude, and if my sentiment of
friendship has sharpened the intensity
of my protest against the conduct of
Dr. Dial's clients?even if my stirred
feelings have led me to indignant ut
terance?the motive is at least not
sordid, and I await with complacency
the judgment of all lovers "of fair deal
ing, and of all sympathizers with the
man in his unequal struggle, when set
upon and hounded by the millionaire.
It is fair here to add that on the day
of the annual meeting of the stock
holders, May 19, Mr. Dial desired Mr.
Lucas to succeed in the controversy?
so he told me out of his own mouth.
If further proof be needed it will be re
called that with Mr. Dial the Milliken fac
tion would have held a majority of the
board of directors prior to that meet
ing. The fact that Messrs. Dial, Fer
guson, Hale of Boston, Fleming and
Milliken, now of the Milliken element,
constituted a majority of the board of
directors during the mill year 1904 and
1905 damns the sincerity of charges of
mismanagement or wrong doing by Lu
cas up to the termination of their di
rectorships. Why did they not meet
and demand Mr. Lucas's resignation?
I protest against Mr. Dial's use of
the term "the home people." He does
not represent or speak for the people
of Laurens. Though a non-resident, I
am more truly a Laurens man in this
issue than he. If he challenges this
denial I shall go into detail, but pend
idg that, I defer to the "dislike for
publicity and notoriety" which he
avows in his letter; for possibly it ex
tends to some of his allies. If he would
have the lid lifted, let him speak the
word, for I am tired of hearing the in
sinuation that Lucas's "home people,"
who are my people, are the instruments
of oppression in the hands of the Milli
kens. Let the public judge between
the Milliken lawyer and the stock
bolder who is Lucas's personal friend.
By appealing to the press Mr. Dial
seems toy admit the character of this
dispute as affecting the public interest.
I, therefore, invite him to join with me
in an appeal to the people of South
Carolina, in their representative ca
pacity, the General Assembly, for the
appointment of a commission to inves
tigate the relations between the North
ern selling agents and the South Caro
lina mills. Let us see, for example,
whether or not there are combinations
in restraint of trade in violation of the
existing drastic South Carolina statute.
I make this proposition in all serious
ness. Why should not the Millikens
trust the Legislature as well as the
Courts? Meanwhile we may see
whether or not the fingers of Mr. Dial,
the Milliken attorney, shall press to si
lence the lips of that Mr. Dial who has
for once overcome his scruples against
"publicity and notoriety" to write as a
"citizen and taxpayer of South Caro
lina." W. W. Ball.
In regard to Mr. Dial's claim about
the contract with J. P. Stevens & Com
pany, here is the answer, in addition to
what Mr. Featherstone has said:
It is saving to the stockholders about
$15,000 the year more than was saved
when the Millikens represented the
The fact that it continues for a term
of years will prevent the Millikens for
that term of years from becoming sell
ing agents and charging about double
the Stevens commissions if they get
control. It may have the effect of pro
tecting the Mill for the future.
Mr. S. M. Milliken has sworn that
his firm cannot do business at lower
rates than it charged. As long as that
oath stands Mr. Milliken's firm will
have to own or indirectly control mills
in order to get their business.
Decring, Milliken & Company did not
permit Mr. Lucas to sell except through
them. Mr. Lucas if he sold to other
concerns at all did it in defiance of the
Personally, the writer would add that
he has not criticized any stock-holder
who merely sold his holdings and wiped
his hands of the fight.
Improving the Farm.
The News and Courier recently con
tained the following editorial which we
think Laurens farmers will find worth
"This period, when the tillers of South
Carolina soil have money to spare,
should be signalized by the making of
lasting improvements on the farms.
The sagacious manufacturer, at the
time when profits are generous, puts
his plant in order, strengthens its weak
points and adds those little accessories
which, though not essential to produc
tion, facilitate it. This he does rather
than scatter all the earnings in in
creased dividends, so that when the
times of stress come again, as they will
come, they may bo weathered without
The same rule contains equal wisdom
for the man whose plant produces cot
ton, corn, cattle, vegetables and poul
try. Thousands of South Carolinians
who possess "onc-and-two horse"
farms, and l?rger farms, have at this
moment a surplus in the form of ginned
cotton, cash or bank deposits.
What will they do with it? The
temptation to spend it for Christmas
"goodies" for luxuries of all descrip
tions will be hard to resist. Some with ]
hundreds in pockets now will even rush
blindly and deeply into debt in the
vague belief that twelve-cent cotton
has come to stay. The very thrifty will
save, just as they defied difficulties and
saved when cotton sold for six cents
the pound. Others would nave if a
good investment were at hand. Land is
the investment with which they are
most familiar, and which with good
?Jnge they prefer, but, they will argue,
the prevailing higher price makes Tana
purchases a heavy undertaking.
What then is the safest, the most
natural investment?that surest to in
crease the farm's value and the farm's
dividends? Land improvements is the
obvious answer. The man who spends
one hundred dollars in replacing the
rail fence enclosing his pasture with
the best of wire fencing that will en
dure indefinitely will have a great ad
vantage over nis neighbor, who must
patch Iiis fences a few years hence,
and must borrow the money to buy
the nails and pay the carpenter. The
man who spenda a hundred dollars in
filling gullies ard redeeming a few
acres, which were "washed away"
years ago, will be in better position
thnn the man who buys many acres at
$30 each and executes his bond and
mortgage for the greater part of the
purchase money. Hard times will come
and interest payments will once again
seem hard indeed.
In older States and countries the
farms have improvements far superior
to those of our farms. Stone fences,
terra-cotta drainage, strongly built
tenant houses and fine barns, not to
mention soils made rich by fertilization,
are the rule, not the exception. On
those the cost of production is held to
the minimum, and the profits never
dwindle entirely out of sight.
The arable lands of South Carolina
have become too valuable for careless
and wasteful treatment. The farmer
who owns a one-hundred acre tract and
has one thousand dollars in cash, if he
be practical and intelligent, can invest
it to better profit paying at home, with
out crossing his own Doundary lines,
than anywhere else in the world.
Dying of Famine
Is, in its torments, like dying of con
sumption. The progress of consump
tion, from the beginning to the very
end, is a long torture, both to victim
and friends. "When I had consumption
in its first stage," writes Wm. Myers,
of Cearfoss, Md., "after trying differ
ent medicines and a good doctor,
in vain, I at last took Dr. King's New
Discovery, which quickly and perfectly
cured me. Prompt relief and sure
