Nobody is complaining about tAe

I am truly sorry to say that Mrs.

There is a singing school in pro
gress at Bachnan Chapel with Mr.
J. J Hipp as teacher. The class
meets early Saturday and on Sun
day at ro a. im. Mr. Hipp is well
versed in vocal music, and if there
is not progrcss amoifg the Bach
manites along this line it will not
be the fault of Mr Hipp.
No doubt everybody who reads
this has heard the words used, It's
a pity." Yes, it is a pity, and one
pity is bad enough; but when there
are so many pities included in one
large pity, it is simply too bad.
The last presentment of the grand
jury brought to light all of those
pities which I have reference to.
It is an awiul pity that there has
been such a reckless expenditure of
the county's public funds, putting
the county $22,000 in debt; and
this, in connection with the fact
that we have had as little public
improvement as I have known for a
cor'siderab)le while. It is not de
sired to open upl any more fire on
Supervisor Schutupert. If this had
been thme intention the game could
have been started long since. Mr.
Schmumpert's elmployes on the pub11
lie works have tried to exonerate
him of a parlt of the charges made
against him by the grand j ury, but
this does not lessen the county's
deb)t one p)article. The taxpayers
have got to foot the bill just the
same, and the cry, "'overburdened
with taxation'" is going to be heard
before the debt is paid. The p)eo
pIe don't nmind paying out money
when they can see that they arc
getting value received but every
taxpayer hams a right to complain
when he sees that his money is
being wastedl. We had a good
roadis camnpaig:n duin mg the past
suinmmer in order to find out
what kind of p)lanm the taxpayers
wantedl to better the conidit ion of
the public highways, and so far as
is known by this "orrespondlent,
everybody agreed that the only
plan was by taxation, and( it was
dlecidedl that it would be best to
conmmence t his iprovemenit by a
2-minill levy withI thle coininuitat ion
tax put back to $2.00. Now this
reckless expend(iture of muoney
which has already thirowin the
county so far ini debt is simiply a
dleaAj blow to the good roads i>ive
mneA. When it comies to a test it
will be seen that the people are not
going to be willing to pile up debt

CONGRESSMAN WYATT AIKBN.
Third District's Congressman is Well
Known and Popular in the Nation's
The Washington Star, in a write
up of the new members of the Fif
ty-eighth Congress, which is now in
extra session, has the following to
say of the Hon. Wyatt Aiken, rep
resenting the Third District of
"The name of Aiken is an*old
and honored one in the House of
Representatives. For ten years the
third dtstrict of South Carolina was
represented by D. Wyatt Aiken.
Now, after a lapse of years, the
son, Wyatt Aiken, "democrat, of
Abbeville," comes to fill the seat
that was his father's. Mr. Aiken
conies to Washington well equipped
for a legislative career, although
this is the first public office he I.ias
ever held. He is fully acquainted
with Washington, however, having
spent much of his time here when
his father was in Congress and hav,
ing since been a frequent Visitor.
He is known to the men who have
been in Congress for long terms, to
the older correspondents and at
taches of the House, and is not by
any means strange to congressional
cust.omis and parliamentary proce
'I'le new Representative Aiken
gives his vocation as "farmer," and
declares lie has always been such.
ie was born I)ecember 14, 1863.
.and was reared on a farm in A hbe
ville county, S. C., in the section
now embraced in Greenwood coun
t y. He received a connuon school
education at Cokesbury and after
ward in Washington, where lie
cane when his father was elected to
"While in this city Mr. Aiken
acquired short-hand, his efforts in
this direction quickly bearing fruit,
for in January, 1884, lie was ap
pointed official court reporter for
the second judical circuit of his
native State. A year later lie was
appointed to a similar position on
the eighth circuit, a position lie
has since held. Notwithstanding
his connection with the courts in
this official capacity, Mr. Aiken
did not relinquish the title of farm
er. He took then and takes now a
keen interest in everything pertain
ing to agriculture, and is sure to
prove a stanch friend to the farmer
while in Congress.
'"WXhen the wvar with Spain was
declared, the martial spirit of his
forefather-s took possession of Mr.
Aiken, and lhe voluniteered his ser
vices in the humble cap)aci ty of pri
v'ate in his home company, the Ab
beville Volunteers, wvhichi was muns
teredl into thme serv'ice of the Unzited
States at Columbia May io, 1898.
The company became known as
Company A, 1st South Carolina4
Regiment of Infantry. It was not
long 1:efore Private Aikeni was ap
pn.nitedI a battalion adjutant by
Governior Ellerbe, and during al
most the entire time of his service,
Mr. Aiken actedl as regimental
gr.artermnaster. He was mustered
out of the service with his regiment
at Columbia Novemiber 1o, 1898.
"Previous to his recent election
to Congress Mr. Aiken's nearest
app)roachl to p)ublic offce was as
delegate to several State conven- '
tiowis. A t the electieni he receivedl
5,082 v'otes to ' east for his repub.
licanm opponIent, Johna Scott.'
