LAURENS, S. C, March 14, 1906.
FACTS AND AFFIDAVITS.
"Efforts have been on foot to adjust
the litigation in which all of the Lucas
interests have united with some of
those allied with the Millikens, but
they have failed, Mr. Milliken rejecting
the basin proposed by the Lucas party,
and assented to by some of his friends.
The Lucas party nave also repeatedly
presented 'give and take' offers. They
offered to purchase all of the shares of
the Milliken party at $170,or to sell all of
their shares at $170, leaving to the Milli
kens the option of buying or selling. This
was rejected. Then they offered to buy
Milliken stock at $175 a share and again
at $180 a share, but at the same time of
fering to sell their shares at $170. All
these offers were rejected. At present
no negotiations for a settlement are
pending and the litigation will con
tinue. ?News and Courier.
Meanwhile the stock of the Laurens
Mills is quoted at only $160. Of course
no minority stock-holder dare buy it
while the Millikens have a chance to
control. They believe it worth $180 a
share with Lucas in control but the
Millikens believe it worth only $160 a
share with themselves in control.
The general public will pay only $160.
with the Millikens fighting for control.
Hence tho minority stock-holders lose
practically $20 the share if not more
on account of the want of public confi
dence in the Millikens.
Why do we say this? Because the
.?dock of the Watts Mills, the only Lu
cas mill in which the Millikens have no
interest, is steadily rising in value.hav
ing recently gone up $10 or $15 the
share, while that of Laurens and Dar
lington have not gone up at all?though
both are making money.
The public is afraid that the Millikens
will gain control.
The facts of the market are stronger
than the Milliken affidavits.
THE HEPBURN BILL.
Senator Tillman in a speech on Feb
ruary 12 pronounced the Hepburn bill
"a maze of words through which you
can stumble and every man will disa
gree as to what it means." In the
same speech he declared it a bill through
which not merely an automobile but a
freight train could be driven.
In that speech he also said:
"It is a bill which had many wise
lawyers and patriotic statesmen en
gaged in framing it, which came origin
ally to us from the Attorney General
under the very wing of the President,
everybody with any wisdom in law in
the republican party consenting, so to
Bpeak, in writing it, and saying, 'Here,
Pete, pass this,' but when Pete gets up
to explain it he wabbles about through
the bill and swears things are in it
which nobody else can see, and swears
things are not in it which everybody
who knows the English language can
see are in it. Why, then, should I not

lican "Railroad Senators" placed Sena

WHY NOT MULES?
Ten years ago a farmer could buy a
big fine young Western mule on the
market here from $125 to $150. Such
a mule now costs from $250. to $300.
Ten years ago a Laurens farmer could
raise such a mule for $150 4 or less.
Mules never could be bought cheaper
than they could be raised in Laurens.
It costs less to raise mules in Laurens
now than ever before. Why? Because
the pastures are better and the lands
have been improved and hay and grain
crops are more economically produced.
If a mule raised now at a cost of
$125 will sell for $250 it follows that
there are from two to three bales of
ten cents cotton clear profit in every
Laurens raised mule.
Why then do not Laurens farmers
raise more mules?
Tho Sumter Item, which favors the
"Senator Tillman who wnsin Colum
bia Thursday is quoted as saying that
the dispensary people should get to
gether and organize on the same basis
as the prohibition people."
Senator Tillman is right. The cen
tral and paramount idea of Senator
Tillman's politics so far as South Caro
lina is concerned is State whiskey. It
is the clear right and duty of the State
whiskey party to hold a Convention, or
ganize and nominate a full ticket?the
fuller the better. We shall have more
respect for the Dispensary leaders
when they come out into the open un
der a State whiskey flag.
The Pec Dee people are as usual talk
ing about what the Pee Dee ought to
hove in the way of offices. Why don't
they bring out a man who would de
servo to win because he is a South
Carolinian, who would reflect distingu
ished credit on the whole State? If
Henry Mulhns of Marion should of
fer for attorney general it would not
be necessary for him to explain that he
is a "Pee Dee man." The people of
all parts of the State would soon find
out that they need him ?because there
are mighty few his equals in character
and ability and because men of his type
in public life are useful to Greenville,
Abbeville and Laurens no less than to
Marlboro and Chesterfield.
But wo arc inclined to remark in dis
gust that we arc opposed to any man
described by his friends as a "Pee
Dee," "Piedmont" or "Low Country"
or "Up Country" man. A man whose
personality is not bigger than a dis
trict is too small for a State office.
Meanwhile we wish the State of
South Carolina would insist upon hav
ing the services of Mr. Henry Mullins
who attends to his business in Marion
and who is an informed and liberal
Governor Heyward has chosen for
the Jamestown Exposition Commis
sioner from this congressional district
the best man available. His name is
Frank Evans. He is a school teacher
who never fails to do the work of a pa
triotic citizen when his services are
needed. He docs not inquire what the
majority want but docs what his con
science tells him to do. He will be no
figure head commissioner. He will got
results. We do say that the Governor
surely made a happy selection?we be
lieve that he could not have made any
other quite so good for this particular
service to South Carolina.
The New York Times prints the fol
lowing incident concerning Alabama's
gifted Senator Morgan, as related by
"The other afternoon I was sitting
at home with nothing special to occupy
me, and I picked up an old volume of
The Congressional Record. I opened it
at random and hit upon the mi ddle of
speech, which I began to read. Very
soon I became interested, and as I pro
ceeded I said to myself, "This man is
making a very sensible talk." 1 found
myself quite in accord with his views,

was wondering who could hove made
such a speech, but was too much inter

I turned the page I came upon an in
terruption, and there was my own name

This reminds us of an incident which
occurred a good many years ago, in
this State. Col. B. W. Ball, the brilliant
Laurens lawyer, had a particularly hard
case to defend. The evidence all seemed
to be against his client, but Col. Ball
worked out a most ingenious defence
and presented it to the jury in a most
and convincing manner. As he sat
down, a brother attorney came around
to congratulate him on his magnificent
effort. "Well." said the Colonel, "a
while ago I thought my client may be
guilty, but since I heard my speech, I
am satisfied he is innocent." The jury
took the same view of the case and the
man was set free. ?Spartanburg Jour

HEAVY FERTILIZER SALES.
Indicate an Increased (iotton Acreage
Columbia, March 12.?Judging from
the unprccedently congested condition
of freight traffic on all the roads in
this state?and the railroad people say
that similar conditions prevail through
out the South?farmers and merchants
believe 1906 will be the best year in
the history of this section, and a
greatly increased acreage of cotton is
going to be planted. The movement of
fertilizer is the heaviest in the history
of the roads here, but the congestion is
by no means due only to the movement
of fertilizer. Manufactured goods from
the North and West has been coming
in heavily several weeks, and now fer
tilizer is blocking the way.
But there is no car famine, strange
to say. There are plenty of "empties"
to supply all demands on all the roads,
because of the great amount of foreign
cars in this territory which have just
been unloaded and ought in the ' gular
order of things to be on their way back
Some idea of the difference between
the movement this year and last year
may be gained from the statement
which a railroad man made to a Colum
bia correspondent today that the South
ern alone handled 30,314 cars through
its yards here in Columbia din ing the
month of January as against 15,214
cars the same month last year. The
February report is not yet available,
but it is believed it will show a still
greater difference. Tho Columbia
yards arc so crowded it is almost impos
sible to do shifting with anything like
dispatch. And every sidetrack through
out this section is more or less crowded,
the full cars waiting to be unloaded.
At many of these stations no more cars
can be handled which further compli
"I think it a safe statement to make,"
said the railroad man, "that the South-'
ern aione has 5,000 cars tied up be
tween Washington and Savannah on
account of sidetracks at small stations
being crowded. No, there is no fault
to be found with the condition of the
engines. There is simply an endless
amount of shifting to be done in this
situation. The Southern has just got
ten in direct from the Baldwin shops
two fine new shifting engines for the
Seaboard and Coast Line officials tell
the same sort of story.
Superintendent Williams, of the Sa
vannah division of tho Southern, is im
proving the main lines of his division by
laying heavier rails. This ought to
quicken schedules and facilitate freight
traffic as well. The seventy-pound rails
from Charlotte through to Columbia to
Savannah aro being substituted with
eighty-pound rails, about fifteen miles
of the new rails being laid each way
from Columbia. Twenty-nine miles of
seventy-pound rails have been laid be
tween here and Spartanburg, taking
the place of sity-pound rails. New rails
are being rapidly distributed on all three
of these lines and the complete renewal
of the lines will bo pushed rapidly.

FROM TREE TO NEWSPAPER.
In how short a time a tree can be
converted into a newspaper was tried
recently in England. At 7.35 A. M.,
three trees were felled and taken to a
local paper factory. By 9.34 the first
sheet of paper issued from the ma
chines. The printing works of the near
est newspaper were about two miles
distant. The paper was carried there
in a motor car at full speed. The
presses set to work, and exactly at 10
A. M. the newspaper was printed. The
whole process from the forest to the
reader thus occupied only the space of
two hours and twenty-five minutes.

NOT A PATENT MEDICINE.
Hyomci a Scientific Treatment for Ca
tarrh by Breathing Medicated Air.
Ever since Hyomei has been known,
its formula has been given to physi
cians, druggists, and, in fact, to all in
telligent people who could appreciate
the true merit of the combination of
healing gums, oils, and balsams of
which it is composed.
Many leading physicians endorse
Hyomei and prescribe it for catarrhal
troubles. In fact, quite a few of them
use it themselves to breakup a cold and
prevent pneumonia. They regard it as
a natural, yet scientific way of curing
Breathed through the pocket inhaler
that comes with every outfit, Hyomei
destroys all catarrhal germs in the air
passages of the throat and nose, soothes
and heals the irritated mucous mem
brane and effectually drives from the
system all traces of catarrhal poison.
No one should confound Hyomei with
the patent medicines that are adver
tised as catarrh cures. It is as superior
to them all as the diamond is more
valuable than cheap glass.
The complete Hyomei outfit, consist
ing of a neat pocket inhaler, a medi
cine dropper, and a bottle of Hyomei
costs but $1, and extra bottles can be
obtained for r>0 cents,* making it the
most economical method of curing ca
tarrh, as well as the most reliable.
The Laurcns Drop Co. have sold a
great many Hyomei outfits and have
seen such remarkable results from its
use, that they sell it under an absolute
guarantee that it costs nothing unlesa
