In an unusual wartime order, Johns ton instructed local law enforcement officers June 1 to arrest anyone found recruiting labor in South Carolina for jrts outside the state. The governor states that agents from northern states were “luring" South Carolinians from their work by paying their transjxirta tlon to northern industrial centers.
