tion unedr the name of Laurens Oer
The ease litis a number of Inter
esting features, and is of especial in
terest in this section of the state where
the men arc well known. It was
docketed some time ago, but this is
the first time the ease has come to
trial. Several well known attorneys
woro engaged in the ease, counsel for
the plaintiff, W. S. riaugh, being Messrs
Cothran, Doan & ('othraii, and Dial &
Todd, and for Lho defendants, Messrs.
Ilaynsworth & llayuosworth, and
Itlchoy AL- Ulchey. The suit was COIU
incnccd yostorday afternoon in the
und was concluded Just before
dinner recess'today. This prac
w m! . mi the business of the
:l court for the pros out term,
ni alter hearing a few equity imat
ters, the court will adjourn sine die,
o, bly this afternoon or tomorrow
In this complaint, the plaintiff, W.
S. Batlgh, sels forth that he is a cit
izen of the city of LaCnyette, Indiana,
and that the defendants are citizens
of Laurent) county. On the 13th of
February, 1907, the defendant.; gave
three notes, each for $1,006.00 due
Oi toher 1. 1008, ?Ictobor I. 1000 and
October I. 1910, respectively. These
notes were made payable to .1. Crouch
and G. It. Crouch, who composed the
firm of .1. Crouch Ai Son, of LaFoyottc,
Indiana. Shortly after making tin
notes, on or about the 18th of Feb
ruary, ll'OT, it is declared, certain
amounts were paid upon each note, so
that, tile sum of $S00 remained due
upon each. The plaintiff declares that
the payees endorsed the notes, and
^tarjiforrod to the plaintiff, \Y. s..
Uatlgh, who declares himself to be the
I lawful owner of the notes, lie alleges
that although frequent demand has
been made by him for paytmcnt of
those notes they are still unpaid, and
asks that judgment he given him for
$Nt)0 on each note together with six
per cent interest on tho first, from
October I. 1008, to present linn', from
Octohor I. 1909 to the present, on Lho
second, and from October 1, 1910, to
the present on the third, and In per
cent for attorneys fees, etc., together
with the costs of the action.
Purchased a stallion.
The answer of the defendants sets
forth as one of the main grounds of
defense, that about January or Fob
ruary, 1907, they were associated tin
der the name of the Laurens Gormnn
Coach-llorso company, for the pur
pose of raising coach horses, and
about this time, entered Into nego
tiations with .1. Crouch & Son of La
Foyottc, Indiana, for the purchase of
a stallion. As a result of these ne
gotiations, they purchased a Ger-I
man com b stallion, at a price of
200, for Which they gave the notes.
Thi- purchase, it is declared, was
made under the guarantee of sellers
that the stallion would come up to
the roquiroiuonts of the purchasers.
Then animal was given a trial, it is
declared, and proved absolutely worth
less as a breeding animal. The de
fendants declare thai they wore mis
led in the purchase of the stallion,
to their damage in the sum of $2,800.
They offered to return the animal, it
is set forth, and get their notes back,
but. the sellers, .1. Crouch & Son, de
clined to agree to this proposition,
The defendants further made the al
legation that the transfer of the notes
to W. S. Baugh was merely a pre
tense, and for life purpose of making
it appear that he Is the real owner of
the notes, this being, it is declared,
only a part of .1. Crouch & Son's
scheme to get the money out of tho

OUT OF THE RACE
After Attending nicase Conference,
Where he Had a Cold Reception,
Marlboro Man States that lie is Out
of Sympathy with the Movement of I
Coluunbia, Oct. 30. John U McLau- !
rih <>f Donnettsvillo, who attended the
conference of administration support-1
ors in State polltlos, held Wednes
day night at the Jefferson, announced '
hu t bight that lie would not he a can
didate for governor. "Am out of pol
Ith-K OUCo Otld forever," he said.
The ex-8Cnator's statement was as
"I will not he a c andidate for gov
ernor. There is no field for a man
of really conservative view:-.. I think
factionalism lias none too far and am
satisfied that the people are not go
ing to he permitted to go I together
by the leaders on either side. The
slews I expressed at the conference
last night do not suit either extreme,
and I long ttgo made up my min i
never to advocate anything which my
inner consciousness tonchns me is
wrong. I stand just where I did in
IS'.IO, for the people. That movement
gave the first real liberty that the
?masses in South Carolina ever enjoyed
and I lind myself oul of sympathy
With the views expressed by the oth- |
<?:? speakers at that conference
"I do not think that 'Blcasclsm' is
higher and nobler than Tillmanlsm.
The spirit that animated Tillmanism
in 1890 was higher and tiner than the
sentiments I heard expressed last
night. It is the irony of fate that I.
who suffered most injustice from Till
man personally, should now he the
only defender of Tillmanism, While
some of the Im on who are inciting
class hate and prejudice may got in
to ofllce, I know that power gained
by such methods Is ephemeral and
that the State will suffer. I went there
like a man; said what I had to say:
1 don't suit them; they don't suit mo.
So I might just as well he a man
that is hotter than being a governor.
"Am out of politics once and for
ever, and feel like a load is lifted off
mi-. Instead of a conference of bit
ter partisans Utero should he a confer
ence of men from both factions who
are not olllee seekers and a fight made
to control tlie next convention. Then
go on and elect a man governor, w ho
will know no faction and neither
friend nor foe in the administration of
public affairs. If we do not call a
halt we will make a little Mexico of
South 'Carolina, and what lor? Mere
ly to put this man or that into of
llce? Thai Is a prostitution of that
gre..t uprising of the people in ISi)0,
which if I cannot prevent I at least
w ill refuse to assi: *."
