IS IT A LOTTEItYI
Two 3en Arrested Yesterday Charged
withi Conducting a Lottery Scheme.
S. Cross and Fret Myers, represent
Ing themselves as in the employ of the
'Co-operative Furi l ture Company, of
Charlotte, were arrested yesterday at
the instigation of several Laurens mill
citizens and carried before Magistrate
Traynhan charged with conducting a
lottery scheme. They were later re
leased on a cash bond of $50 each to
appear at the next term of the court
of general sessions.
Their plan of operation was explain
ed by one of the 'members of the
"clubs" organized, as follows: Fifty
people, generally women, were induc
ed to join a club of fifty, agreeing to
pay 25 cents each week. Every Satur
day for lifty weeks a drawing would
be held in Charlotte at which one club
member would draw a pilece of furni
ture alleged to be valued at approxi
mately $15. The successful club-mem
ber was exempt fnom further pay
ments. At the end of fifty weeks, it
will be seen, each member of the club
would have received a piece of furni
tur at a/cost varying from 25 cents
to $ 2.50. It is said that they had sue
ceed d in organizing several clubs,
when some of the members became
suspicious when it appeared that a
drawing was not being made for each
club. A canvas of the mill 'villages
disclosed that 8.1 members had not re
ceived a prize. How many clubs were
in actual operation and how long each
club had been running has not yet
been ascertained and will have to be
brought out at the trial but the agents
showed the names of flive persons to
whom they had delivered prizes.
The men disclaimed any intention to
defraud and denied that their provosi
tion was a gamie of chance. After the
bond had been fixed up collection from
club members was resumed.
Deputy Sheriff Blakelcy, City Po
licemian Powers and Rural Policeman
Sullivan made the arrests in the case.
