Morning- Last Friday.
fTihe State.
FWihifcmire, May 12.?This monning
about 5 o'clock fire was discovered in
the rear of 'P. B. O'Dell's Kvery stable
and in a few moments it was seen the
business part of town was doomed,
for in two whole blocks not a shingle
escaped the flames, every house
therein having been completely destroyed.
'T!he most prominent establishments
affected by the fire were
those of C. H. Cooper company,
Glenn-Lowry Manufacturing company.
Miller Bros., J. G. Setzler and Dr.
Hilton, all of whom had l3rge capital
and did imense business. The firms
carried insurance but not sufficient to
cover losses.
Among the burned buildings was
thp hut the nostmaster.
David Duncan, saved all the mail and
important papers and letter boxes.
By the afternoon the pcstoffice was
fitted up in the hotel building.
A dozen or more small merchants
managed to save their goods. The j
calamity is so shocking the victims
of the fire have not yet decided what
to do except the Gtenn-Lowry company,
which will build at once, and do
business on larger scale than ever.
P. B. O'Dell had no insurance and
lost all his ^vehicles, a fine horse and
much forage.
There are only- two stores now in
"Whitmire, that of A,- J. Holt and I
"Whitmire Surulv company. j
This is ibe only fire of consequence
to occur in this prosperous towin. It
has no "fire department. The cause
of fire is unknown, but is supposed to .
have been caused by a careless negro
with cigarettes while feeding stock
at the stable. The
town is in darkness tonight on .
account of the electric lights haying i
been put out of commission.

Eight Big Plants to Be Disposed of
Making Safe Basis for
Tihe State.
Greenville, May 11.?The -directors
and stockholders of the Parker Cotton
Mills company decided at a meeting
held today to complete the negotiations
for the sale of the eight cotton
mills, comprising the Hampton
group, one of tlie subsidiaries of the
Parker company. The purchasers are
Lockwood, Greene and company, of
Boston. It is understood, though no!
such statement was made at the1
meeting today, nor after th.e meeting. I
that the Pacific Mills company desires,
the four Columbia plants. The selling
price was somewhat under the $3,-j
| 000,000 agreed upon recntly by the
! stockholders as a minimum price.
However, there are certain features
of the sale which tend to offset the
discrepancy in price. The offer which
was accepted, was the first and o. .ly
offer made to the Parker Cotton Mills I
'The mills of the Hampton group
will be delivered June 26. The Parker
Mills company is to have possession
of all stock manufactured prior
to tnat time. Tne pronts anucipaiea
will bring the selling price up to near
the figure recently agreed upon.
The transaction is to be practically
cash. Officials of the Parker Cotton
Mills company appeared pleased at
the sale. The Victor and Monaghan
groups will mow be placed on a firm
footing and will enjoy a credit as
good as could be desired, according
to statements made. The debt per
spindle will be reduced to a figure
that is easily managable. 'The pur- j
chasers agree to take care of all con- j
tracts made by the Parker Mills company.
The net debt of the Victor and
Moaaghan " groups will not now
amount to more than about $600,000.
These two groups have a spindleage
of' about 240,000. There-will be a
reorganization of the two subsidiaries
and one' company firmly formed to
manage them, according to tentative
It is said that creditors of the
Parker Cotton Mills company will, as j
a result of the sale which is aow a l

was fairly generally' expressed that
the sale of tlie Hampton group has
solved a troublesome situation. There
was a very decidedly happy feeling
noticable among some of the officials,
for they feel that the reorganization
recently .determined upon, has met j
with a fortunate turn. The original j
plan of refinancing, which plan pre-1
ceded the plan to sell the Hampton J
I group, is now abandoned.
! At the meeting today about $10,i

j tion did not serve to prevent the ma1
terialization of the plan. The Parker
! Cotton Mills company, which for
some time has been in more or less
embarrassed circumstances, is now
regarded as being on a splendid footing,
the debt of more than $5,000,000
will be so materially reduced, as a
result of certain quick assets and the
sale of the Hampton mills, as to give
the central company a financial status

Resolutions of Grand Lodge Provide
3IedaJ for BraTe Clarence Waters
of Spartanburg.
The State.
Greenville, May 11.?During the
final session of the grand lodge of
Odd Felloes today fitting resolutions
were pass^l giving official expression
cn the heroic conduct of Clarence
Waters of Spartanburg who on the
..light on M-,rch 30 held in cheek
flames that broke out in a closet at
the Odd Fellows orphanage. Aoniirattic

ment arrived and saved the day.
Waters fought back the flames and
remained at his post at a time when
many grown people would have fled
the place. The facts were brought
to the attention of the grand lodge
and a committee was appointed co
purchase and have.suitably inscribed
a gold medal which no doubt will be
handed down with the resolutions during
the coming generations of the
family. And this was not all that
the Odd Fellows intend doing for
young Waters, for the committee was
further instructed to recite the inci
dent in proper form to the Carnegie
hero fund commission and with the
expressed hope that the lad will be
given the usual check for recognition
of heroic service in protecting and
saving the lives of others.
