MOVE TO ENJOIN
Important Stop Taken in
Ware Shoals Contest.
THE FIGHT CONTINUES
Judge Gage to Hear Motion of Minority
(or an Order Enjoining Special
An interesting and important step in
the now famous Ware Shoals mill light
was taken last week hy the attorneys
representing the minority stockholders
of the company in that they will appear
before Judge George W. Gage in Green
wood this week praying for an injunc
tion to stay or prevent the proposed
meeting of stockholders on April 22nd
at Ware Shoals, where the majority
stockholders will increase the capital
stock of the mill to ono~and a half mil
lion unless prevented from so doing by
the injunction asked for. The attorneys
~tn Uns action are those representing
the plaintiffs in the pending suit against
the Riegels and others of the majority
side for damages and "specific perform
ance," viz., Simpson, Cooper & Babb,
P. P. McGowan and A. C. Todd, of the
Laurens bar, and Simpson & Bomar, of
the Spartanburg bar. These attorneys
met in Spartanburg on Tuesday for
joint consultation and the above men
tioned action was decided upon. Judge
Gage is holding the court of com
mon pleas in Greenwood this week and
it is hoped to secure his order in time
to prevent the proposed meeting. A
temporary injunction, lasting until the
pending suit is tried, will be asked for
if a permanent order cannot be secured.
Notice was served on the defendants'
If the injunction is secured then the
issues will be settled by the suit brought
by J. O. C. Fleming and others, for the
complaint in said suit contains a clause
asking that the Riegels be prevented
from issuing any preferred stock on the
grounds that it would be a violation of
the original contract entered into by the
Riegels and the minority stockholders.
This case will be heard next week un
less the attorneys for the defendants
succeed in having it postponed. As has
already been stated in this correspon
dence the suit against the Riegels is to
require them to carry out the form of
the agreement entered upon and to pay
damages for the losses sustained during
the period of their control. This agree
ment forbids the issuance of preferred
Following is the affidavit upon which
is based the prayer for the injunction:
Personally came before me N. B.
Dial, one of the plaintiffs in this action,
who, being duly sworn, says that at the
time he was negotiating with the defen
dants, Benj. Riegel and Benj. D. Rie
gel, and others with respect to their be
coming interested as stockholders in
Ware Shoals Manufacturing Company,
he stated to said defendants and the
other defendants herein with whom he
negotiated that when the corporation,
Ware Shoals Manufacturing Company,
was formed and the stock then held
therein was subscribed for by the vari
ous stockholders, it was distinctly
stated, understood and agreed that all
the capital stock in said corporation
should be common stock and that there
would be no preferred stock issued, and
as evidence of such understanding de
ponent exhibited to said patties named
a certain prospectus, copy of which is
hereto attached; and deponent says that
the defendants well knew and under
stood that the stock so subscribed in
said corporation by many of the plain*
tiffs and other minority stockholders
now interested with them was sub
scribed and taken with the understand
ing that preferred stock should not be
issued in said corporation. Deponent
further says that to his knowledge it is
absolutely unnecessary that preferred
stock to the amount of $500,000, or any
other amount, and that in his judgment
it will be greatly to the prejudice and
injury of all the present stockholders
holding common stock in said corpora
tion for their said stock to be burdened
with the preferred stock which the de
fendants now propose to issue. Depo
nent has no hesitation in saying further
that in his judgment the issuance of
said stock as proposed by said defen
dants will greatly depreciate the selling
and the divide..;! earning value of all
common stock of the said corporation.
Deponent attaches to this affidavit a
statement of the financial condition of
Ware Shoals Manufacturing Company
as issued on January 31, 1908, which
shows that at that time the said com
pany had on hand and in bank more
thah $100,000 in cash, and shows further
that if the cash on hand, together with
the proceeds of tho sale of quick assets,
should be applied to the indebtedness of
said corporation, tho balance of indebt
edness then remaining due would be
comparatively small for a mill of the
size, age and capacity of the defendant,
Ware Shoals Manufacturing Company.
Deponent further states that during
the unlawful control by the defendants
of said Ware Shoals Manufacturing
Company, as alleged in the complaint,
which amounts to money, have been
unnecessarily and extravagantly ex
pended in the erection of unnecessary
dwelling houses, unnecessary village
improvements and water works, unnec
essary power plant or parts thereof
and for other purposes, which sums, to
gether with the sum of about $28,000
of commissions on sales of goods caused
to be paid out by the defendants in vio
lation of their agreement set out in the
complaint as commissions on sales of
goods if properly applied, would have
freed, or almost freed, the plant of tho
company from debt.
Deponent further says that the plain
tiffs and other stockholders in Ware
Shoals Manufacturing Company have
never received on their stock in said
company any dividends whatever, and
if the defendants shall be allowed to
cause to bo issued the preferred stock
now proposed this will mean ?if present
conditions continu?^-a. denial of any
dividends to all |ommon stockholders
for a long time to come.
Deponent attaclips to this affidavit a
BEST OF PROOF
That llyomei Will Cure All Forms of
Testimonials could be printed by the
thousand, many of them from Laurena
and nearby towns, saying that Hyomei
absolutely cures all catarrhal troubles.
The best proof of its unusual curative
gtwers is the guarantee that Laurens
rug Co. give with every outfit they
sell, "Money back if Hyomei does not
do all that is claimed for it."
Hyomei is not a secret remedy. Its
formula is freely given to physicians
who want to know what they are using
when they prescribe Hyomei. It is
guaranteed under the Pure Food and
Drug Law by Serial No. 1418.
There is no dangerous stomach drug
ging when Hyomei isused. Its healing
medication is breathed through a neat
pocket inhaler, reaching every part of
the air passages, destroying all ca
tarrhal germs and curing the disease.
preferred stock as showing the purpose
of the defendants herein in that regard
and as showing the unjust, oppressive
and illegal terms and conditions on
which the defendants propose to issue
preferred stock; and deponent states
that at the meeting of directors at
which it was proposed to issue such pre
ferred stock deponent and his co-plain
tiff, J. O. C. Fleming, the only direc
tors representing the minority stock
holders then present, voted and pro
tested, and that their co-plaintiff, J. T.
Johnson, also protested by letter against
the issuance of such stock.
Deponent further states that the de
fendants herein other than Ware Shoals
Manufacturing Company, together with
their relatives and associates, own and
control more than two-thirds ot the
stock of Ware Shoals Manufacturing
Company, and that unless restrained by
this court the said defendants at the
approaching meeting of stockholders
will cause resolutions to be adopted for
the issuance of preferred stock in ac
cordance with the notice hereto at
tached and that the plaintiff in this ac
tion are remediless to prevent such
wrong save through the intervention of

Petitions for Dispensary Election.
Petitions for a dispensary election are
in circulation in the city and throughout
the county which have already nearly
enough signatures to warrant the elec
tion. It is recalled that Laurens has
had one election already on this ques
tion but on the charge of illegality the
election was declared void, and accord
ing to the statutes no election can be
held in this county until the coming fall.
The prohibition or rather the anti-dis
pensary forces, though, have taken time
by the forelock and will be prepared
when the time arrives. It is understood
that these petitions must be in the hands
of the Supervisor by the first day of
May. The contest this fall promises to
be a lively one, especially in view of its
closeness at the last election.

"One Touch of Nature Makes the Whole
When a rooster finds a big fat worm
he calls all the hens in the farm yard
to come and share it. A similar trait
of human nature is to be observed
when a man discovers something ex
ceptionally good; he wants all his
friends and neighbors to share the
benefits of his discovery. This is the
touch of nature that makes the whole
world kin. This explains why people
who have been cured by Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy write letters to
the manufacturers for publication?
that others similarly ailing may also
use it and obtain relief. Benind every
one of these letters is a warm-hearted
wish of the writer to be of use to some
