WILLIAM E. LUCAS
M as President of the Watts
HIS LIFE A SUCCESS.
Passed Away in Philadelphia and Wil|
be Buried Today at Spartanburg.
Only U Years Old.
W. E. Lucas, president of the Watts
Cotton Mills, died at Philadelphia at
2.30 o'clock Tuesday morning-, January
the 14th. Mr. Lucas came to Laurens
in 1895 to become president of and
build the Laurens Cotton Mills. To the
success of this enterprise he gave un
stintingly all of his magnificent abili
ties. He had no contractor but over
looked the actual building of the mill
itself, which from the day it went into
operation prospered under his Bplendid
management. In a abort time he waB
recognized as one of the ablest mill men
in the South and in 1900 was offered and
accepted the presidency of the Darling
ton Cotton Mills, which he resigned in
1905. In 1902 Mr. Lucas organized and
became president of the Watts Mill.
Owing to the serious break down in his
health in the spring of 1906, while he
lay desperately ill in Philadelphia, a
compromise was effected in a pending
lawsuit between the minority and ma
jority stockholders of the Laurens Mills
by which the presidency of the mill
passed from his'control.
Mr. Lucas was born in Darlington
county 44 years ago. His father, Dr.
B. S. Lucas, for years a practicing
physician at Hartsville, Darlington
county, survives him and has made his
home with his son here for several
years. His brothers are Edwin R. Lur.
cas, president of the Walhalla Cotton
Mills, and T. C. Lucas of Rock Hill.
He married Miss Cora Cox of Nashville,
Tenn., who, with two sons, Edwin,
aged thirteen, and Robert, aged six,
survive him. Mrs. Lucas left for Phila
delphia Monday evening.
The body will be brought to Spartan
burg this morning and buried In the
Episcopal cemetery. Rev. Wilmot S.
Holmes of Orangeburg will officiate.
The death of Mr. Lucas has brought
a real and deep sorrow to his friends.
Mr. Lucas' Funeral Today.
A large party of Laurens friends
went to Spartanburg this morning to
attend the burial services of the late
Mr. W. E. Lucas. The Watts Mills,
store and office wero closed yesterday
and will remain closed until tomorrow.

BURNED TO DEATH
Cremated In a Cabin on (be Premises of
Mr. Jared D. Sullivan.
A fearful holocaust occurred three
miles from Laurens Thursday night, on
the premises of Mr. J. D. Sullivan.
Two negro children were burned to
death in a burning cabin. The circum
stances are these: Tom Wilson and
wife, colored, occupied a two-room cab
in on the Sullivan place, the house hav
ing a passage between the rooms. At
10 o'cloc'c Thursday night Wilson and
his wife, who slept in one room, heard
a scream in the room across the pas
sage, which was occupied by their three
children, aged nine, six and four. He
went across and opened the door, and
as he did so the oldest child ran out,
but the room was wrapped in flames
and he could not get in to rescue the
other two. Running out, he attempted
to get in a window, but this also failed
and the two small children were burned
to death. The negro claims that there
had been no fire in the room all day,
and the origin of the fire is unexplainod.
There was no insurance, and all the
furniture in tho house, except a sewing
machine, was burned.

many as eleven times in one place,
and has never been known to fill all the

JERRY FREED OF
Found Guilty of Cairying
As Kesnlt of Term, Four Convicts Qo to
Columbia, and the Rest to the
The criminal docket for this county
was cleared in a week, and the winter
term of General Sessions Court ad
journed at 1 o'clock last Saturday.
Splendid progress was made from the
beginning in disposing of the work bo
fore the court, and in no case did the
trial jury get "tied up" for a night
during the week, a circumstance that
has not happened in several preceding
The last case tried was that of the
State vs. Jim Templeton, a negro boy
charged with killing another negro
youth near Tylersville, a few months
ago. Templeton was found not guihy.
As stated last week the case of John
C. Jerry, accused offjthe murder of his
brother, Krank Jerry, was the most
important for the current session. This
ease was called Friday, just beforo
noon. The testimony of eight witnesses
was introduced in behalf of the State,
while the defense put up five, including
the defendant himself. Because of her
inability to attend court, the testimony
of Mrs Carrie Jerry, the aged mother
of the defendant and his deceased
brother, as given at the coroner's in
quest, was admitted for the State.
It wil be recalled that, as a result
of a personal encounter at the Jerry
home, October :?0 last, between John
C. and Frank Jerry, brothers, Frank
was struck on the head with a pistol
by John, the blow causing death to cn
suo within about fifteen hours. Dr.
W- L. Bailey, who made the post mor
tem, testified that the blow on the head
of deceased produced a line fracture of
the skull and caused a blood clot to
form on the brain.
The taking of the tcstimany and the
arguments woru concluded before ad
journment Friday evening. On Satur
day morning, after the Court's charge,
the case was given to the jury. At cue
o'clock the jury returned a verdict of
"not guilty as to the charge of mur
der, but guilty of carrying concealed
weapons," as charged in the indict
ment. After taking an oath that he,
John C. Jerry, would never again carry
concealed on his person a deadly weapon
for any purpose, a fine of one dollar
was imposed by the court, and tho de
fendant was released.
In the trial of Jerry the contention
of the State was that the defendant
had no grounds for the plea of self
defense; that he struck his brother
while Andrew Jerry, another brother,
was holding Frank in an effort to pre
vent the men from coming together.
On the other hand, the defense con
tended that the deceased had broken
looso from Andrew and was making at
defendant with a hoe when the fatal
blow was inflicted.
Wednesday morning Cleve Ellison,
the negro boy charged with killing Ned
Anderson, also colored, was convicted
of manslaughter. A motion for a new
trial was granted by the court.
Tom Jones, colored, was "next tried
for the killing of Rob Campbell, another
negro, of the Cross Hill section. Jones
got a verdict of manslaughter, and was
given ten years in the State peniten
Charged with murdering his sister-in
law, Teague Nelson was convicted of
manslaughter and was sent to the State
prison for fifteen years. All colored.
Henry Turnbull, a negro of the upper
section of the county, tried for the sec
ond time on a murder charge, the kill
ing of another negro, was found guilty
of murder with a recommendation for
mercy, and was, therefore, sent up for
Rich Suber, tho Goldvillc negro who
was re-arrested on a warrant charging
him with the murder of Dave Hunter,
colored, was tried and convicted of
manslaughter. Argument for new trial
was made and the Court took the mo
I tion under consideration.
