THE GOSPEL TRUTH.
A. Maa Who Has Been a Friend to the
Poor Boy a Candidate for Congress.
His Ch?tra* For Election
Citizenship carries with it grave re
sponsibilities, c ? which the right of ,
suffrage 's doubtless the most i m por- j '
tant. ? It is tho plain duty of every tuan I
to vote intelligently, ar.cl " to do this he | ,
must kuow the men askiug office ami
among whom he is to choose, of the 1
seven men who ar?? set'king tile honor of 1
representing tho people of this Congres- 1
?ional District, there is ono whom his <
friends deem it! a .privilege to support. |
Those who know Wyatt Aiken host be
lieve that no other candidate for this
office possesses in a higher degree or lu
a hotter proportion tho elements of 1
manhood which go to make a true rep- 1
resentative of tho people, lie has heart 1
as well as intellect, and no mau is of tho
true type who has not both sentiment ,
and sense. Hoing a son of a mau who
fought in peace and war with his every
energy for the rights for which the dem
ocratio pwty stands. Wyatt Aiken has
always been a close student of the poli
tical principles of his father-the princi
ples of genuine democracy. His discus
sions of the questions of tlieday indicate
a mind naturally well balauced and
trained to view political situations from
the right standpoint. ' The writer has
no ver known a mau of bigger heart or
nobler impulses. Truly this man is gen
erous to a fault. Do good deeds proceed
from rv good man? Then there are few
better than Wyatt Aiken.
Some years ago, through his contribu
tion and influence, an unfortunate mau
of this town was sent to an'infirmary
and his life prolonged thereby, and 'tis
a fact that this man never know whom'
to thank. In the family of a working
man of Cokesbury there was a bright
boy who could not attend sciiool be
cause hi>: father was unable to pay the
tuition. When the facts of the cane
were brought to Wyatt Aiken's atten
tion, he sent the boy to school, paying
the tuition himself. That he had a sel
fish motive in any one of these cases, no
man who knows the circumstances,
would even suggest. Within the last
few moments the writer has had in mind
more than a half a dozen boys of the
same village, for whom, and In some in
stances without the knowledge of whom,
Wyatt Aiken has procured positions. AU
of his life he has been seeking oppor
tunities to help tliefe of his fellow-men
not as fortunate aa he. "A friend in
need is a friend indeed." is a familiar
quotation. The subject of this sketch
has proved himself to be such a friend
time and again. The roan who is true
to his friends must be true to himself,
and being true to himself, it follows
that he cannot be untrue to any man or
to any political or other party. In civil
life his favors have always been be
stowed where they were most needed
upon the poorer people; and during his
short military life he showed himself
the friend of the non-commissioned offi
cer and the private soldier. No man has
known the friendship of Wyatt Aiken
but. to stamp it "pure gold." If he be
a poor man today, it is because he has
ever been a liberal supporter of all
Christian works, and has generously an
swered every call upon him as a citizen.
It is sometimes claimed that a farmer
can best represent the farming people.
If this be true-and it is questionable
Wyatt Aiken bas the qualification, xor
while he lived at Cokesbury he was a
prac 6fei il farmer.
Ol the loren candidates offering for a
seat lu Congress, the voters of this Dis
trict should choose the man who has the
mental scope to thoroughly understand
the problems of government that may
arise, the steadfastness of purpose ana
the soundness of judgment t guarantee
a service higl.ly acceptable to his con
stituents and to the best interest nf de
mocracy. Those who know Wyatt
Aiken best believe he will serve well his
constituents and the democratic party
at large. Is there another man of the
seven who has-heart and intellect in bet
ter proportion? It is the duty of every
citizen to vote for the best man. Wyatt
Aiken stands out as a man whom the
office might well seek, and his claims
must be considered by every one who
wants true mea in office. His good
deeds in this community commend him
to its voters, for in the past he has been
the friend of the so-called common man,
and tbis man knows but one way to
judge the future, I. e. by the past. If
there be any praise in the above, it is
but just. Citizen.
Cokesburv. S. C., Aug. 20, 1002,
W. Boyd Evans to thc People.
I desire to express my thanks to my
fellow Democrats in South Carolina
for'their'expression of confidence in
mc as a candidate for Railroad Com
missioner in the primary, leading my
opponent for thc second race by near
ly two thousand votes, asking for
their suffrages in the second primary.
All of my opponents and myself dis
cussed the question in reference to
the Railroad Commissioner's office
and the welfare of the people in every
County, and separated as friends.
My opponent is from the same ter
ritory as the two incumbents. When
Mr. Wilborn retires, the great eas
tern, north-eastern and south-eastern
seotions of the State, comprising the
largest part of thc State, with the
largest railroad mileage, will be abso
lutely unrepresented on the Board.
Living in the Contrai part of the
State, and being a native of Marion,
by which County I was -endorsed for
the position, I submit that I am in a
position, if elected, to see that all
sections of our progressive State are
If I am honored with your suffrages
von may vest assured that I will per
form the duties of the office of Rail
road Commissioner wrf? the fidelity
that I have served my people in the
past. W. Boyd Evans.
Dr. Smith for Congress.
Mr. Editor: The race for congress iu rj
he third district is reduced from sev
m to two candidates-Aiken and
Smith. No sectiou of this State has
uade or will likely make moro iinpor- ]
ant demands upon a congressman *?
:han this, the progressive third dis- 1
:rict. lt is exceedingly important j *
.hat tho great agricultural aud indus
trial interests of Anderson and the ,
)ther counties directly interested are i
represented in the national legislature
67 the strongest man that can bc se- t
lectcd-a man of breadth and depth -
who will be watchful, active and true "
Lo his constituents.
At no period in this County's his- *
tory was ever so much nt stake as now j
and the time has come wheu every vo- ,
ter should weigh the merits of thc two
candidates for congress in this dis
trict. The genial, companionable
characteristics of either should not bc i
regarded apart from ability and goner- i
al fitness. It should not be a matter
of friendship or personal regard for
families or individuals, living or dead,
but ono of patriotic duty for the up
building and oontinued prosperity of
the whole country, and especially this
section directly interested.
I have known R. F. Smith, of Pick
ens, one of tho candidates before us.
for twenty years. He isa substantial
citizen, of great force} of character
and is intellectually strong. If he
does not measure up to the require
ments of a representative from this
district at Washington then we who
know him so well will be greatly dis
appointed. Ile was born and reared
in Anderson County, near the line di
viding it from Pickens, Some years
ago he transferred his residence to
Pickens County, but ha3 during his
whola life been largely interested in
and identified with Anderson County.
Ho has sought few political honors,
giving all bis earlier years to his pri
vate or professional work, in which he
has been remarkably successful. No
political preferment has ever been de
nied him by his own county. * In the
?rimary of last Tuesday he carried
Rekens by an overwhelming vote-by
a much greater majority than was ever
given to any other home candidate in
the district. In the upper portion of
Anderson, where he is well known,
his strength developed about as dis
tinctly as in Pickens.
The time is short between now and
the final primary on the 9th of Sep
tember, but it is not too late to do our
duty and inquire as to Frank Smith's
fitness and general qualifications for
the high place he seeks.
There is another view to take of this
race. The voter, having settled for
himself the question of comparative
ability and fitness as between Smith
and Aiken, and even if some will ad
mit equality on this line, is it not
plain that Pickens, in all fairness,
should have the Pickens man. An
derson has had the congressman for
ten years. Abbeville had D. Wyatt
Aiken and Cothran until both died,
Newberry has been represented, Coo
nee is out of it, and Piokens has never
had a congressman in her life. Piok
ens has indicated beyond doubt that
Frank Smith is her man. No other
oounty in the State has been so pro
nounced in favor of its man. Pickens,
with a total of 2,409, gave Smith 1,
660. Abbeville, out of her total vote
of 2,271, gave 690 votes to Aiken. The
voting strength of Abbeville and Piok
ens is about the same and so their re
spective claims for importance as po
litical factors io the district are about
on a parity. Therefore, in all justness
and fairness, Anderson. Newberry,
Ooonee and even Abbeville can well
alford to oonoede to Pickens, our sis
ter county, the right to name the con
gressman in this second race since it
has been demonstrated by a previous
test that Pickeos has put up a strong
and acceptable man ia the person of
Frank Smith. Anderson.
A Sad Suicide in Spartanburg.
Spartanburg, S. C., Sept. 1.-Ebor

about 00 miles. It is .tuthoratively
stated by the management of this road
that their ultimate intention is, when
this Murphy extension is finished, to
push a line through Rabnn Gap into
Eastern Georgia and Western South
Carolina, making a short connection
with tho Southern's other lines in these
States from the coal lields. Two corps
of engineers aro already engaged at
work on this extension. A short cut of
this kind into tho coal fields would save
Southern railway thousands ol dollars
monthly in haulage, employees, etc.
A project of this kind ha? long been in
contemplation by olhcials of tin; road
and its building maybe looked forward
to with certainty.-Asheville Citizen.
