Governor Heyward, with ref erence
to the checking up of request books,

S. C.-Dear Sir: I notice from the

and I think it due myself and due you
that I should make an explanation.
I did not decline to handle the re-.
quest books in the spirit of a refusal
to carry out the law, but made this
statement to Capt. James because my
time is absolutely and entirely taker

office. I am not furnished a clerk,

It is a physical impossibility for me
to keep these books as required by the
law. For that reason I told Capt
James I just simply could not under

Governor Heyward thinks with a
little eneouragement that the request
books can be used if the dispensers
themselves will only see that the cus
tomers are made to sign the blanks.

BOGGS VS. AIKEN
Congressman Aiken Stys he Will be
Pleased to Have Mr. Boggs.Keep
Him Company In Race For
Cogressman Aiken spent a couple
of hours in the city yesterday after
noon, says the Anderson Daily Mail.
Mr. Aiken secured a few days
leave of absence from his duties in
Washington to visit his home at Ab
beville on private business. He has
a son in school at Greenville, and de
cided to come by Anderson on his way
to Greenville, and his many friends
here were more than glad to see him.
Mr. Aiken seemed in the best of
health and was as joyial as of yore.
The life in Washington is not telling
on him. Naturally about the first
question put to him by his friends
was about the race for congress this
summer -and what he thought of hav
ing Solicitor Boggs as an opponent.
"Why, that is all right,'' he said,
"I will be a candidate for re-election.
Jule Boggs and myself are the best
of friends, and I would be very silly
to object to him running for congress
if he wants to do so, I will have to go
all overthe district this summer any
way, whether Boggs runs or not, and
I will be very glad to have him go
along and keep me company. He is a
nice fellow and I can enjoy myself
with him. But of course I don't
think he stands a ghost of a chance of
being elected." And Mr. Aiken smiled
"It's like this," said Mr. Aiken,
"the office of congressman belongs to
the people. If they want me to con
tinue to represent them I shall be
glad to do so, and if they want some
one else I am ready to step down and
out. I think, though, the people have
learned to set some store by the fact
that length of service adds to effi
ciency, and that'they will argue that
if they have a congressman who is
doing good service there will be no
need of a change. An inexperienced
man is not worth much. At the same
time it is the duty of the people, if
they find that they have an ineffi
cient public servant, to make change.
1t will be up to the people to'decide
this summer, and I am quite willing
to go before the people and ask them
to deeide it. I am not mad at mny
friend Boggs for running, and I don 't
want hiin to get mad when I keep
him from getting the office.''
.Whend sked about the trend of
legislation in Washington Mr. Aiken
said he could give no more 'informa
tion than had already been given in
The thaily Mail's report from Wash
ington. The -statehood bill has been
held up for the present, he said, but
would probably pass.
The appropriation for the Anderson
postoffice building is as much a cer
tainty as anything in the future can
be, he said. Anderson has been in
luded in the general public building
bill, which is about ready to be re
ported to the house, and the bill is
certain to go through. Speaker Can
non has been holding the bill as a club
over the heads of the insurgents on
the statehood bill and other matters,
but it will certainly be passed.
In reply to a question Mr. Aiken
said he thought there was still a
chance for the bill to create a new
federal district in this state, .but he
is not every optimistic over it. The
South Carolina members will endeav
or'to get the bill up in a short while
and see what can be done with it.

In a murder ease tried before a
certain judge, says the Philadelphia
Ledger, counsel for the defendant
urged: ''It is better that ninety and
nine guilty persons escape than that
one innocent man should suffer.'' In
his charge to the jury the judge ad
mitted the soundness of the proposi
tion, but added: ''Gentlemen, I want
you to understand that the ninety and
nine have already escaped.' '-Ex.
