Oversight in Matter of Filing State
ment With Federal Officials.
Editor Keowee Courier: Several
have asked the quostlon as to why I
withdrew from the race for Congress,
and somo have given their Ideas as
to my reason in the matter.
The (acts are as follows: Congress
Jias recently passed a law requiring
all candidates for Congress to lile
with the Clerk of the Houso of Rep
resentatives at Washington, fit teen'
days before a primary election, an
itemized statement of all money
used in making a campaign, known
as tho law as to publicity of cam
paign funds. I did not know that
such a law existed, as it ls a recent
one. and therefore did not file thc
required statement of expense ac
count. I did not know until last Fri
day that there was such a law, when
I noticed in the papers that I. alontf
with several others in this Stato.who
were candidates for the United
States Senate and Congress, had fail
ed to file said expense account, and
I at once considered myself out of
tho race. This, 1 think, was the
only sensible thing to do, .and I so
notified the county chairman in each
county in the Third Congressional
District.
I had filed my expense account
and bad done everything necessary
so far as our State laws are con
cerned, but got caught on tho Fede
ral laws. I do not feel at all bad
over it, as other and smarter men
than I am got caught along with me
-In fact, every one in the State, ex
cept the incumbents and one ex
Congressman running for the Senate.

wrote "finis" after the proceedings I
of the second session of tho Sixty-1
Second Congress.
The end was marked with a re- j
turn of harmony. Senator La Fol- j

all opposition smoothed away in ,
front of him, and tho resolution
passed almost without discussion.
Senators Chamberlain, Martin, |
Swanson and Culberson, after fight
ing bitterly for the payment of the |
"State claims," embodied In tho gen
eral deficiency bill, yielded to the
urgings of their colleagues and per
mitted the Senate to yield to the de- |
mauds of the House, and strike these
claims fi'om tho bill. In return for
this co. Gssion, however, they re
ceived the promise of support next
winter, when the claims again will
be pressed for payment.
With these old claims, amounting
in all to $600,000, went the "extra
