* LABOR CONTRACT LAW.
Pull Text of the New Labor Law as Set
Forth by Mr. Nasb.
We print below the contract law just
passed by the Legislature, as ?et forth
in a communication from Representa
tive J. W. Nash to the Spartanburg
Herald of Sunday. Representative
Nash, who is making an enviable repu
tation for himself in the General As
sembly, it must be borne in mind
though now a citizen of Spartanburg is
in reality one of the strong young men
contributed by Laurens county to the
citizenship of the State:
Mr. Nash's letter follows:
I deem it of great importance, es
pecially to our farmers, that they im
mediately understand the contract law
under which they are to operate this
year: so I take the liberty of request
ing you to publish at once this letter,
so as to fully inform them what they
may depend on. The following bill was
adopted on a free conference committee
report on Thursday night, and as soon
as it is signed by the governor it will
be a law of this State. The governor
will probably sign it early this week.
A bill relating to contracts for per
sonal service and advances thereunder,
declaring certain offenses connected
therewith misdemeanors, regulating
matters of evidence and procedure in
such cases, and prescribing punishment
Be it enacted by the General Assem
bly of the State of South Carolina:
Section 1. That any person who shall
hereafter contract with another to ren
der to him personal service of any kind,
and shall thereafter fraudulently, or
with malicious intent to injure his em-'
ployer, fail or refuse to render such
service as agreed upon shall be deemed
guilty of a misdemeanor.
Sec. 2. That any person who shall
hereafter contract to receive from nn
er personal service of any kind, and 1
compensate him therefor, and shall
thereafter fraudulently, or with mali
cious intent to injure his employe, fail
or refuse to receive such service or to'
make compensation as agreed upon,
shall be deemed guilty of a misde
Sec. 3. That the failure of either
party to such contract to perform the
obligation assumed by him thereunder,
without sufficient cause and to the in
jury of the other, shall be priina facie
evidence, in prosecutions under Sections
I and 2, that he violated such contract
iraudulently and with malicious intent ?
to injure the other party.
Sec. 4. That any person who shall
hereafter contract with another to ren
der personal service of any kind to him,
and shall thereafter fraudulently, or

other thing of value from him, with in
tent not to render the service agreed
upon, and who shall thereafter with
like intent fail or refuse to perform the
service agreed upon, shall be deemed
guilty of a misdemeanor. Proof of the
fact that the employe entered into the
contract, procured advances and failed
to complete the contract without suffi
cient cause, to the injury of the em
ployer, shall be prima facie evidence
of the offense herein described and de- I
clared a misdemeanor.
Sec. 5. That any person who shall
hereafter contract with another to re
ceive from him personal service of any
kind, to compensate him therefor and
to make advances to him, and shall

cious intent to injure the employe, re-1
ceive the benefit of such service in
whole or in part, and with like intent.
fail or refuse to make the compensa
tion or advances agreed upon, shall be
deemed guilty of a misdemeanor. Proof J
of the fact that the employer entered
into the contract, received the benefit
of the employe's services, in whole or
in part, and failed to make the compen
sation or advances agreed upon without
sufficient cause, to the injury of the
employe, shall be prima facie evidence
of the offense herein described and
declared a misdemeanor.
Sec. 6. The contract referred to in !
this act may be either verbal or in writ- '
ing; if in writing, they must be exe- ?
cuted with the formalities required by
Section 355, Criminal Code, A. D. 1902;
if verbal, they must be witnessed by at
liast two disinterested witnesses, not
relited by blood or marriage within the
sixth degree to either party; and the
term of service contracted for must be
for a definite time, not exceeding one
year. All such contracts shall be valid
only between the original parties there
to, and any attempted transfer or as
s:gnment of any rights thereunder shall
bo null and void.
Sec. 7. That if either party to any
written contract herein referred to de
sires to avail himself of the benefits of
this act against third parties he shall
cause the same to be indexed in the of

Sec. 9. That this act is not intended
and shall not be construed to protect
any of the parties to, or punish the'vio
lation of, any contract or matter con
nected therewith, where the induce
ment or consideration of such contract
is money or other thing of value, ad
vanced to or for the employe prior to

prohibited and declared null and void.
Sec. 10. That all acts and parts of
acts inconsistent with this act be and
the same are hereby regaled.
Sec. 11. That this act shall go into
effect immediately upon the upproval

Section 355 of the Criminal ('ode,
above referred to, reads as follows, bo
far as it applies to this act :
"Section 355. All contracts made
between owners of land, their agents,
administrators or executors, and labor
ors shall be witnessed by one or more
disinterested persons; and, excepting
verbal contracts, at the request of ei
ther part,,, be duly executed before a

forth the conditions upon which the la
borer, or laborer*, engage to work, ex
pressing the length of time, the amount
of money to be paid and when; if it be
on shares of crops, what portion or
portions there are."
By reading the above Section 355, in
connection with Section 6 of the new
act, it will be seen that this Section 355
applies only to written conti acts. If
the contract is verbal the provisions set
forth ivi Section 0 of this now act as to
verbal contracts shall be followed ex

Prohibition Leader Addresses Orange?
hin..: Audience on Liquor Question.
Orangeburg, Feb. 20. The Hon. ('.
C. Featherstone, of Laurens, the ac
knowledged prohibition leader of South
Carolina, delivered a prohibition ad
dress in the Court House here this
morning, which was beard by a large
and enthusiastic gathering of many
prominent people ol* this city, including
a larg< number of ladies, whose efforts
I were responsible for Mr. Featherstono's
appearance hero. The students of the
I Orangeburg Collegiate Institute at
! tended in a body and gave close atten
tion to the remarks of the speaker.
There is a determined effort on the
part of the prohibitionists of this city I
to conduct a campaign against Iho
liquor traffic with a view to eventually
making Orangeburg County dry terri
tory and they are working faithfully to
such an end.
Mr. Featherstono's ability as an ora
tor is well known, and aside from the
main theme of his discourse his speech
was greatly enjoyed and, no doubt, ac
complished much good.
The speaker made an earnest appeal
for prohibition to those who were not
numbered in its ranks, and stated that
if 50 per cent, of the church members
of Orangeburg County will say that
they want prohibition they will cer
tainly have it. He did not think that
the people of his generation appreciate
his efforts in behalf of prohibition, but
is certain that the coining generation
will. Mr. Featherstone interspersed
his address with interesting statistics
showing the great evils which have been
wrought by whiskey. Ho suggested
remedies which would curtail, if not
stop altogether, the use of intoxicating
beverages. lie said that the fight
against the legal sale of whiskey which
was boing waged now would be con
tinued until success crowned the efforts
of the prohibitionists.
Mr. Featherstone was warmly wel
comed by the people of this city, who
hope that Im will como here again in
the near future, and should he decide
to enter the Gul ernatorial rare, (foX.t
summer he can count on numerous votes
from this county.
Because meats are so tasty they are
consumed in great excess. This leads
to stomach troubles, biliousness and
constipation. Kevine your diet, let rea
son and not a pampered appetite con
trol, then take a few doses of Chamber
lain's Stomach and Liver Tablets, and
you will soon be well again. Try it.

South Carolina's Fertilizers.
Prof. J. N. Harper, of Clemson Col
lege, at the meeting of the South Car
olina Live Stock Association, Feb. 7,
1908, made one of the finest addresses
ever heard in the South. It dealt with
facts the farmers of South Carolina
should know, facts they should heed
and study out to their welfare and in
creased wealth. Among other things
Prof. Harper, who is an authority on
such subjects, said the following:
"Home systems of farm management
in the South will not permit the grow
ing of leguminous crops often enough
and in sufficient amounts to produce the
nitrogen required. Under such condi
tions we must resort to the use of ni
trates or some commercial form of ni
trogen. The cheapest form to be found
in commercial fertilizers sold in the
South is in cotton seed meal as the ni
trogen in cotton seed meal is. in an or
ganic form and it gri' lually becomes
available as it is broke ' down by nitri
fying bacteria into nitrates. This pro
cess is gradual and consequently the
nitrogen is not all available at once as
it is in nitrate of soda and as the plants
develop this nitrogen slowly becomes
available for their use. The South is
now exporting millions of pounds of
cotton seed meal to other States and
countries, there to be fed to animals
and the manure to be returned to the
soil, increasing the amount of humus
and nitrogen. This is an enormous loss
to the South and if continued through
great periods of time will eventually
mean depleted soils. South Carolina is
now spending about $12,000,000 a year
for commercial fertilizers. This is
em'Ugh money to purchase the food for
000,000 cows and the manure from
liOO.OOO cows would be equal to the $12,
000,000 now spent for commercial fer
tilizers. From recent experiments con
ducted at our experiment station at
Ciemson wo have found that dollar for
dollar manure from cows fed cotton
seed meal is worth three limes as much
as commercial fertilizers containing the
same amount of plant food. The value
of farm manure depends largely upon
t! e Kind of food that the stock con
sumes. It is a fact that with mature
animals about SO per cent, of the nitro
gen is recovered in the manure and
practically all of the phosphoric acid,
lime and potash. There is a loss' of
about one-half of the total dry matter.
Wlicre cows are fed what is known as
a balanced ration the manure from 50
eows during the year contains $2,000
worth of phosphoric acid, potash and
nitrogen, but this is worth more than
this figure because of the great value
of the humus in the manure. Manure
can be greatly increased in value by
feeding concentrates such as cotton
seed meal. No country in the world
probably sutlers as much from a lack |
of farm manures as does the South, j
Our soils contain an abundance of pot
ash, in fact some of"the soils of the
South will analyze almost as much in
potash as some of the commercial fer
tilizers that are applied to them, but
11 ;s potash is locked up in an insoluble
form but by applying manure it will
make it available for plants."

SAVES MAN'S LIFE
Act Of a Brave Washington Officer Gives
a Reputation to a Former Resident t
In a special from Washington, D. C.,
to the Spartanburg Herald, Mr. Thos.
H. Daniel relates the following thrill
ing experience of a young man mighty
well known in Laurens:
Policeman J. C. McCravy,-of this
city, a native of Lauren? county, and a
brother of Postmaster George S. Mc
Cravy, of Laurens, made for himself
somewhat of a reputation Tuesday
night, in connection with a stabbing
affray. A Dutchman and a French
man got into a squabble in a hallway
near where Capt. McCravy holds down
the crossing, and the doughty cop, af
ter trying to get the street door open,
plunged through the glass into utter
darkness and up the steps. All that he
could see was the flash of a knife, and
at each flash a yell greeted his ear. He
called a halt in the proceedings, but
there was no halt. The policeman then
took the butt of his revolver and struck
at the darkness in front of him, mak
ing a pretty strong impression on the
noggin of tbq Dutchman, and then
there v:er<; no more flashes of the knife.
It had already got in such service, how
ever, that the Frenchman, who was its
victim, is in a critical condition, having
received nine serious wound3 at the
hands of the Dutchman. If he recov
ers it will be Policeman McCravy who
saved his life, for the Dutchman was
making quick work of him until the
butt of the revolver stopped him.
The combatants were both employed
as teachers in the Herlin School of
Languages, the one as a teacher of
German and the other as a teacher of
French. "Professional jealousy," they
said, had led to the encounter.
Mr. McCravy is well known in the
upper section of South Carolina, and is
a member of a prominent family of
Laurens. As he stated it some time
ago, there are nine brothers in the
family and "each one has three sisters
apiece. He was recently married to
Miss Daisy L. Branilett, of Greenville.
