L Whitmire >Till Have One of the Best;
f Mills in oSuth.?A Spyendid
ft Section.
F It is doubtful if many of the people j
J A *- ...l* ^ lixrA I
of Newberry, except mose wuu
in the i.nmediate vicinity, know or
realize or appreciate the enormous development
that is going on at the present
time only eighteen miles away,
in the pretty little town of Whitmire.
| Mr. William Coleman and those associated
with him have already one of
the he?sr. eaulnDed mill plants in the
k * k State. Not satisfied with present conr
ditions, some time ago work was heir
gun on the enlarging of the plant to
T double its present capacity.
\ s Only a few years ago the town of
Whitmire was just a railroad station,
with one or two stores and a few people
and a small business all of which
came as a result of the building of tne j
I Seaboard Air Line railroad along that j
I way. Mr. William Coleinan, who was I
) educated for a lawyer, but who had j
? the industrial spirit strongly developed,
and who had faith in his country
and especially this section, which is
. really the best section, decided to give
up the law and embark in the indus-!
trial development of the South and
COntriDUie ins siuue ?s a latwi m iuc
effort to bring the South into its own.
v As a result of this effort and determination
on his part the Glenn-Lowry
l v Manufacturing company entered the
commercial world with 36.000 spindles
f and 900 looms and a capital represent\
ing more than half a million dollars,
^ and "began turning the great staple of
the South into the manufactured arti
c!e. His forbears had lived for generr
* ations just across the Enoree on the
Union side and he and they owned
*-v large landed estates in that community
and it is no doubt due to this fact that
he decided on the present locatioii,
\ though it is ideal. The name of the
company is in honor to the memory
I of Coleman and Rice being a combina
tioii of their middle names. '
i The mill as it stands now, as stated,
i has 36,000 spindles and 900 looms and
* . when the new part now under construction
is complete, being just double
the present mill, will contain 66,,
? 000 spindles and 1,600 looms and will
9ftn hnlPK: of cotton ner weak.
The goods manufactured is 68x72 fine
'sheeting and, therefore, the amount of
f cotton required is not as large as if !
the mill were run on a coarse grade
of goods. It will probably be next to |
> Olympia the largest mill under one j
rr?nf in thp State. The completed i
| building will be 440 feet by 130 feet
and will contain five floors. Besides
the picker room, the machine shops
and the opening room are all on the
outside. On the new part the workmen
are now on the third story. Not
| only is work in progress on the build
ing of the mill but new streets are being
opened and graded and nice neat
houses for the operatives are in pro- i
cess of construction and when the mill !
> I is in operation about a thousand peo- j
pie will be added to the population of |
^j, the town. 'The mill now employs I
about four hundred people.
"4 Thp officers arc
William Coleman, president.
f G. H. Leitner, superintendent
R. R. Jeter, treasurer.
Thad W. Coleman, secretary.
B Along with the building of the mill j
^ a national bank was established which
was successfully operated until about
four years ago whe;i the charter was
i surrendered and a private banking
f corporation organized under the name
of William Coleman and company,
bankers, but with no capital stock except
the credit of the corporators. This

of a young Lady of his community

heroine, and beyond question worthy
of recognition at the hands of the
Carnegie hero commission.
It will be remembered that about
two weeks ago Miss Sophia 'Thompson,
17 years of age. rescued Eva Gregory
3 years of age, from a rabid
dog that had attacked her, choking the
animal and holding it down with her
hands and knees until the Gregory
child was freed. Miss Thompson was
severely bitten and injured in carrying
out her heroic efforts to save
the victim of the dog's attack.
The Xewry community is unanimous
in praise of the little lady who

Sitnfpc Hp I? Sin^erelv in Earnest .As
Candidate For Senate?Will Disv
cuss Records.
As there are some people, throughout
the county, who seem to think my
announcement as a candidate for the
senate was done in a spirit of fun and
mischief, I write this to say I was never
more in earnest in my life. To alloy
all doubt, however, I have this
day deposited in bank my assessment
fee. payable to the order of F. H.
Dominick, Esq., or to Frank R. Hunter.
I have entered this race through 1
no ill will, or malice to anyone, but on
my own initiative and responsibility,
and am no partizan of any clique or!
party, but stand on my own past rec- 1
ord alone, and not on the demerits of
my opponent. I have shied my castor ,
in the ring. My lance in poise, will'
strike straight from the shoulder, but
never below the belt. When the tourney
begins, my friends and opponents
will .find me "at Philippi," eager and ,
ready for the fray with "Lay on McDuff,
and damn be he who first says,
hold?enough." I shall discuss during i
the campaign all matters of public in- |
terest, openly, fairly and fearlessly,
and no man need fear or doubt, as to
where I stand. I shall eschew all personalities,
confining myself strictly to
public issues, and the public record
of my opponent.
If in the last grand showdown I
find myself a loser, the defeat will be j
accepted gracefully, and I will cheerfully
abide the verdict of the majority.
In that event, I will be among the first
to congratulate my opponent in being
the choice of the people of Newberry
county. D. A. Dickert.
