HOSIERY MILL 1
TO BE ABOLISHED
John IM. Graham Will Can
HELD FIVE YEAR
CONTRACT WITH STATE
Rather Than Have I.Miration Graham
Decides To Abide II) Ruling of Leg
islature to Abolish The Mill, Is At
Present Employing ?-tt of The But
Convicts at The State Ten.
Anderson. Aug IT.?Henry W. Glenn,
one of the the directors oi the State ,
Penitentiary, stated tonight that dipt.
.lohn1 M. Graham, who holds a live
year contract, dated three years ago,
for the labor employed In tin- hosiery ,
mill, appeared before the board at
the meeting held In Columbia on last
Thursday and announced that he
would submit win.out any litigation
to the order abolishing the mill on No
vember 1, next, at which time his con
tract will be cancelled. Capt. Graham
stated that he preferred to conclude
his contract, but that he thought best
to abide by the action of the legisla
ture and that he would turn over the
convicts employed by him to the
board November 1, without any effort
to retain them.
Director Glenn says that tin- board
having this assurance from Capt. Gra
ham discussed the matter of employ
ing the labor now engaged in the ho
siery mill, but no definite action would
lie taken until next Wednesday week,
when no adjourned meeting would be
held in Columbia.
The directors, it is sold, arc unani
mous in believing that the state is re
ceiving as much as it could gel for the
labor by the present contract witli
Capt. Graham, and at the same time
tile labor is being well cared lor. The
matter of grinding lime by the labor
for agricultural purposes was propos
ed by Capt. Mobley, one of the direc
tors, but this suggestion did not nice!
with unanimous favor in the board
Letters were addressed to all State
penitentiaries to learn what disposi
tion is made of the convict labor, and
when the board meets next week they
will have replies giving valuable in
formation to guide them to some con
clusion. There are about four hundred
convicts in the penitentiary now, und
of this number __."> uro employed in
the mill. The remaining t'> are em
ployed about the Penitentiary yard or
in the buildings, while a large number
are unable to do any labor at all. The
proposition to send the able-bodied
men out on the country roads does not
meet with favor because the directors
say Hint' tlie apportionment to onch
county will not be more than three or
four, more would be unwise because
of these few conjvicts will be too
heavy on the counties. Then, too, they
think this move would bo unwise be
cause of these class of criminals now
behind the walls of the Penitentiary.
Capt. Glenn admits that the directors
are up against a big proposition and
he is not willing to make any predic
tion as to what will be done.

luiild a great national system of roads
lending from our national capital to
the capital of every state In the Uli

Stopped to think what it would cost?
Probably 18,000 miles would complete
a trunk line through every capital. To
build the best road that modern en
gineering has devised would make the
average about $12,000 per mile. The
western half of these roads will cost
a whole lot less than the eastern half.
Eighteen thousand ,miles multiplied by
$12.000 makes $210,000.000. We have
spent millions of dollars upon the Im
provement of rivers and harbors and
millions of dollars on the Improvement

It provides for a referendum plan of

points tire urged in favor of the plan:
First.- It is an equitable plan, spread

Barnwell, August 16.-?Governor
Blease has placed Sheriff .1. B. Mor
ris, of this county, in a very embar
rassing position by his refusal last
night to allow the Bamwetl official to
arrest an alleged murderer from Geor
gia. Sheriff Morris had been request
ed by ti-.v sheriff of Richmond count v.
Georgia, to be on the lookout for Will
Rush, a negro, who is charged with
having committed murder last Decem
ber. Rush was located at O'.ar and a
warrant for his arrest was sent to'
the sheriff here, Capt. Morris went
to Olar last night to get his man and
found hint in the employ of Or. Lay

being deprived of his cook, and asked
that he be allowed to communicate
with Governoi Blease. lie did tins
over the telephone and the Governor
Informed t'apt. Morris that he had no1
right to arrest the negro without re
quisition papers. Oovernor Blenso, it
is said, told Dr. Hartzog that if requi
sition papers wore gotten out that he
would set a date for a hearing that
as the etlorgia ofllcers refused to at
test fugitives wanted in this State
they would be accorded the same
treatment, the reference doubtless be
ing to the Jittchry ease. Having no oth
er recourse Sheriff Morris was obliged
to leave Olar without his prisoner.
The affair has caused considerable
adverse criticism of the governor, both
hero and at Olar. In addition Sheriff
Morris is embarrassed over not being
able to arrest men for the Georgia
authorities, who, he says, have always
done all that they could to assist him
in arresting criminals wanted in this
