THE COTTON OIL COMBINATION.
Mr. A. C. Phelps Appointed Division Su?
perintendent With Headquarters
The absorption of the independent
cotton oil mills in this State by the
Virginia-Carolina Chemical Co, has
been practically completed for the
time being and no more of the inde?
pendent mills will be purchased at pre?
sent, as the Virginia-Carolina syndi?
cate has secured all the mills needed,
and it is not thought that any efforts
will be made to purchase other mills
this season. The eight or more mills
purchased including the four of the
Atlantic Cotton Oil Co., of this city,'
have been combined with the South?
ern Cotton Oil Co., of Columbia, also
purchased by the Virginia-Carolina,
and the cotton oil business will be
carried on under the name of the
Southtern Cotton Oil Co.
Mr. C. Fitzsimmons of the South?
ee rn Cotton Oil Co.,who formerly man?
aged the Columbia mills, has been ap?
pointed Southern Superintendent of
the company with headquarters in At?
Mr. A. C. Phelps, formerly Secre?
tary and Treasurer of the Atlantic
Cotton Oil'Co,, has been appointed
Division Superintendent of the
Southern Cotton Oil Co., with head?
quarters in Columbia, and will have
all the oil mills of that company, sit?
uated in this State, under his supervis?
Mr. Phelps is one of the best posted
and most successful oil mill men in
this State and the Virginia-Carolina
syndicate has done well to secure
him as their South Carolina represent?
ative. The great growth and financial
success of the Sumter Cotton Oil Co..
from which the Atlantic Cotton Oil
Co.. with its four large mills and
refinery, developed, was due in a
great measure to the business acumen
and energy of Mr. Phelps, who was
the moving spirit in the establishment
of the original mill. He worked in
defatigibly for the success of the enter?
prise : and his efforts were abundantly
rewarded as anyone at all conversant
with the affairs of the Atlantic Cot?
ton Oil Co., will testify. In his new?
field he will have greater responisbili
ties and many more mills under his
supervision., but with his experience
it goes without saying that he will
make a success of the management of
many mills, just as he did when he had
only a few under his control.
Mr. Phelps will, of necessity, have
to remove to Columbia to live, but
for the present his family will remain
in Sumter. He has already entered
upon the discharge of the duties of
his now position and will hereafter
spend the gerater part of his time in
Columbia when not visiting the mills
under his supervision. He has many
friends in this city, in which he has
resided since boyhood, and they regret
that he has to leave Sumter, although
they are glad that he has received this
merited recognition of his ability.
Mr. C. C. Fishburn, formerly as?
sistant secretary of the Atlantic Cot?
ton Oil Co., has been retained by the
Southern Cotton Oil Co., and will go
to Columbia with Mr. Phelps.
Mr. Perry Moses has been appointed
manager of the mill in this city,
and the superintendents of the other
mills owned by the Atlantic Cotton
Oil Co., have been retained in their
positions by the new management.

The convict who escaped from the
chain gang yesterday was not recaptur?
ed. A rain came up before the dogs
could be taken to the chain gang
camp after running the negro who had
been released from the gang and they
could not pick up the trail of the
escaped convict. The dogs followed
the trail of the released negro about
seven miles before he was "treed"
and the officers who were in the chase
say that the dogs did excellent work.
The Sumter Shirt Mfg., Co., seems
to be a success from the start. Orders
have been coming in from the day
the factory opened for business and
orders are now on hand to keep the
force busy for sometime to come.
Yesterdy a big order for delivery in
ten days h?d to be declined as the
present force could not finish previous
orders and this one additional. This
condition of affairs will not exist long,
however, as the force of hands will be
increased immediately so as to handle
with promptness all orders that are
Thursday afternoon^ a prisoner who
had completed his term was released
from the county chain gang and about
an hour later one of the convicts made
his escape. The attempt was made to
run the fugitive down with the two
bloodhounds owned by the county, but
they would not follow the trail. About
ll o'clock the guards sent a message
to the police asking that their hounds
be sent out and put on the trail. Offi?
cers Smith and Weeks took the hounds
out to the chain gang camp and put
them on the trail. They took it up
at once and after a chase of several
hours treed the man they were follow?
ing in a school house in which he took
refuge. When he was brought out it
was found that the hounds had j licked
ut) the wrong trail and had run down
the prisoner who had been released. ;
This is the first real test the dogs have j
ha?i. since they have been owned by !
the police., and the way they followed j
the trail last night proves that they
are well trained man hunters and will ?
follow a trail to the finish:.

HOTEL MARION LEASED.
Professor Owens Has Secured it For His
President Owens, of the Sumter

nary, has closed a contract for the
lease of the R. P. Monaghan residence
on Main Street, now occupied by Capt.
W. E. Zeiglar and known as the Hotel
Marion, and will obtain possesson on
This house, one of the handsomest
and most costly private residences in
the city, will be used for dormitories
for the young lady pupils of the
school, and will be tastefully and com?
fortably furnished throughout.
The art and elocution departments
will also be in this building. As these
departments will be under the direc?
tion of specialists to the classes of
which pupils will be admitted whether
regularly matriculated in the school
or not, the location is considered par?
ticularly convenient to such special
pupils. The class rooms of the literary
and c-ther departments will be in the
Institute buildings on Washington
Street, in which the male pupils of the
school will be quartered.
The school will open September 12th
with a large enrollmlnt in all depart?
ments and its success' seems already
fully assured. The only problem that
now confronts President Owens is how
to find room for all the pupils, but as
the Monaghan residence has been se?
cured this matter of room is practical?

The Brand house is being removed
from the lot recently purchased by the
Atlantic Coast Line and within ten
days or two weeks the lot will be clear
of buildings and in readiness for the be?
ginning of work on the new passenger
depot. The A. C. L. construction
force will have to rush the work on
the new depot if it is to be completed
before the cotton season opens, the
time stated by General Manager Kenly
for its completion.
The North Carolina firemen are
afraid to go up against the hose wagon
teams from South Carolina and this
year for the first time the largest prize
is offered for North Carolina hose
wagon teams alone. The experience
of the past few years has taught the
tar heel firemen that they have no
chance for first prize in a hose wagon
race against the South Carolina teams.
Sumter, Columbia and Camden have
won all the prizes worth having for
several years in succession.
The Sumter Tobacco Warehouse will
open for the season on August 1st

will have capable and competent as

satisfactory business last yea*- selling

The county summerTschool 'opened
Monday morning and twenty teachers
were enrolled. As there were thirty
eight teachers from this county at the
State summer school it was feared the
attendance at the county school would
be considerably less than heretofore,
but the enrollment this morning and
the others who are known to be com?
ing will give the county school quite
a creditable enrollment'.
The chain gang is now working near
Wisacky and a recent visitor to the
camp says that the gang, under the
management of Overseer Tribble, is
doing fine work.
A theatrical entertainment will be
given in Wedgefield on the evening of
August 1st and an invitation is ex?
tended to the public to be present.
The entertainment is given for the
purpose of raising funds to furnish
the academy hall, therefore all who
are interested in the cause of educa?
tion should attend.
Auction Sale of Desirable Lots.
The advertisement of the auction
sale of lots to be held next week will
be read with interest by many who
wish to purchase a lot in a desirable
locality and build a home. The lots
offered* are among .'the very best in
the city and the terms are so easy and
reasonable that men of moderte means
will find it convenient to purchase
one or more either as an investment or
for a building lot.
