FIGHT IN THIRD
THREE CANDIDATES RUNNING
FOR CONGRESS THERE.
Mann and Boggs May Show Aiken
Enough to Make Him Do Some
(Zach McGhee in The State).
In the Third Congressional district
of South Carolina, comprising the
counties of Newberry, Greenwood,
Abbeville, Anderson, Pickens, and
Oconee there are three candidates
for the position now held by Wyatt
Aiken; that is. two besides the in
cumbent. Julius E. Boggs, of Pick
ens is going to try his hand again
and the Hon. Rev. Coke D. Mann, of
Walhalla, is already running to beat
the band. The Hon. Aiken is again
in the race to the bitter end; and
I'm here to tell you 1at if things
'his year are as usual, the word "bit
er" is not merely a stock phrase
ithout meaning, but one which, as
enator Smith says, is apropos-with.
the accent on the "poss." The Hon.
Ika McCalla, of Abbeville, used to be
somewhat of a figurer in the congres-.
sional race up in the Third, and when;
he and Aiken got or thre stump to-.
gether on the banks of the Savannah
and opened up the phials of wrath, I
tell you, there were some "phumes"
therefrom. But the Hon. Ike disap
peared'from the scene one day, and in
the last two campaigns Boggs and
Aiken opened up the phials all alone.
I was up in that district at several
places during the campaign four
years ago when the aforesaid phials
were opened up, and while I never
was able to exactly figure out what it!
was all obout. I could tell by the
"over-heated" atmosphere that there.
was something "agwine on."
.There Are Two Now.
Now we have Boggs again, and in
addition to him a real sure enough
live parson, a fighting parson at tha,
who says that Aiken is no fit ma-n to
be congressman and that he proposes
to show the people a thing or two,
about real statesmanship. Some
body sent Aiken a message not long
o that he had better hurry and
e up into the Savannah settle:

he might not be much on~
ching he thought ,he would be
t smart on a prayer.
Now it would be hard to pick out
section of South Carolina where
ere is a higher ave.rage .of intelli
gence, cultutre, and especially ma
terial progress than the counties of
the Third district. It has .been that
way from time immemorial. That's
where I come from myself, you know,
and that raises the average quite
consi'derable. I talked with some of~
the &olks along the road of the old C.
. . the other day, and it seems to
you can go along that road any,
y of the year and find about 'half of
the people of the district either on'
the train or at the'N.tion. That is
where Wyatt Aik - acquainted

know every mother's son and daugh
ter of them all by their , Christian
namnes. Most of the men seem to have~
played marbles or "gone in er-wash-,
in' " with him.
Matter of Titles.
And that is why Wyatt is in con-;
gress, and that is why he is likely to
stay there for the next term in spite
of Boggs and Mann. Boggs, you see,,
is always "Mr. Boggs," and Mann is
the "Rev. Mann," while Aiken is
"Wyatt." That makes a world of dif
ference, little as you may think. It
makes more difference than all the
tariff bills, all the railroad bills, all
the appropriations for public build
ings, even, that were ever introduced'
Now Aiken is not any popular he
ro as a statesman. These .people :sre
not deceived about him. He is not,
the sort of man to make any great
pretentions, but is the same every
where, being the big boy in Washing
ton, when his constituents come up
here as he is around his district. And
the people of the Third know him
clean through. They know he does
not take any active part in the de
bates in the. house or in the larger
legislation. The point is they do not
care. John C. Calhoun and McDufi
once represented this district, and the
people point with great pride to the
fact. "When another Calhoun or Mc
Duffie comes along we will send him
to Washington," they say, but measn
time, "Well Aiken is good enough.
We know what he is anyway, and
the~re is no humbug about him, and
we like him. He's our friend, and
whenever there is anything he cani do
for us we know he is going to do 5t.
We don't care anything about these
tariff bills, railroad regulations, ini
Ltterstte commerce things and so forth~
anyway. whatMB the good of our
bothering along of these things? Ai

And so it goes. so far as Aiken
