ANDERSON COUNTY S
From tie best in.ormation we can
get as to ;:ie congressional ra;-> i:i
this district it appears that .John A.
Hcrton will be in the second race and
just at this time it is not certain who
the other man will be, Aiken or Donlinick.
Mr. Horton made a most favorable
impression at each of the campaign
meetings and many people were
heard to remark "that he was a good,
clean reliable man that could be
trusted." John Horton has no political
record to speak of and that is considerably
in his favor, but he has a
most remarkable record in his business
career having made a success in
? every undertaking and the (people of
+ dictript havp ripHdpd that
t*"*v will quit voting for people with
"po^rical records, as teey have never
receved any special benefits from
these records. A great many people
are going to vote for John Horton
because he has been a success in conducting
his own business and they
believe that is tne sest indication mat
he will attend to the people's business
more efficiently thin the politician.
JMany people in the Third district
and especially in Abbeville, his home
county, do not understand why Mr.
lAdken ivoted against President "Wilson
on tfne repeal of the free Panama toll
act. They say if President Wilson
and Secretary Bryan could seed they
were wrong and changed their minds
why couldn't Mr. Aiken. Some do
not understand either wbv Mr. Aiken
should have oted against the "Pure
Food Bill" which was before congress
^ for several sessions and which was
t bitterly fought by the manufacturers.
Mr. Aiken was on? of 17 Democrats
to vote against he bill, and he gives
as (his reason that there was an objectionable
clause in the bill. If so,
why didn't he propose an amendment
knocking out the objectionable clause.
Another thing many people do not understand
is why Mr. Aiken is shown
as being "present" 14 times when
questions were being voted upon instead
casting hs vote either for or

Everywhere you go you find a sentiment
for a change as Mr. Aiken has
been in congress 12 years and his
father was there 10 years and many
think it an opportune time to make a
change and many there are who are
turning to 'Mr. Horton because he has
made hia own way from the ground
up, educating himself and knows
/ vhat it Is to have to earn a living by
the "sweat of his brow," and having
made a success of his own affairs the
people will take delight in honoring
him by makiLg him their representative.
Remember, Mr. Horton has no political
organization and cannot send
out letters under a frank, and has no
friend to appoint men to office that
t are working for him on the side.
- , Stick to John Horton if you want a
friend that will do "to tie to."
VOTE FOR JOHN A HORTON
A man without any political record
except that he served the town as
mayor for several terms, but what
is better lie is a successful business
man, and has made a success in his
own affairs and will represent the
Third district and work for tJhe best
interests oil all the "people.
Vote' for him .because he is a man
tiat made his own way worked on
the farm ibecause he had to,
paid his own -way through college,
went into -business, and the people of
the town realizing he would do to
trust telped .him to organize a bank
and he has made a success otf it.

If you do vote for him every indication
is that he will be in the second

"Birds of a Feather Flock Together.*'
I was very much interested in the
congressional campaign and especially
the meeting at Anderson. It
"was really amusing: to see how our
present congressman, Hon TVyatt
Aiken, twisted and squirmed under
the attacks of his opponents. His explanations
were really ridiculous and
the more Mr. Aiken explained the
more untenable his position seemed.
. Mr. Aiken said the "Steamship
/Trust'' told him, tthat is its representatives,
that hey really wanted the
"Free Tolls" done away with. We
all know it was a case of the Rabbit
begging not to be thrown into the
briar patch?and yet Mr. (Aiken had
the audacity to hand that out to an
SON FOR CONGRESS
Anderson county audience. The ex
planation did not explain though
; every true American Democrat knows
that d'ree tolls through the Panama j
canal is a "ship-subsidy"?taking j
money out of the people's pockets and j
putting it into the coffers of the ship
j.owners. And to our utter surprise,
i what do we find on page three c the
| Daily I.Mail of August Tth. ^Ve find :
| John L. McLaurin coming to the resl
cue of :Mr. Aiken. Mr. McLaurin is a
! political outcast of the Democratic
' party of South aCrolina and he owes
his predicament to this same thing of
voting against the people. After chat
memorable vote in the United States
j senate the people of South Carolina
j left "Curley Headed Johnnie" at
home the first opportunity. ^lr. Mc- j
| Laurin has "ginned the Cat" and j
j "Looped the Loop' time and again to j
I get back in to the good graces of the |
True Democrats of South Carolina?
but all to no avail. And the latest repudiation
of Mr.' McLaurin was by the
"Bleaseite.s" He cut a double-back-action
summersault and landed in the
Blease camp. But after they looked
|5rim over they decided they did not
need him. And now Mr. Aiken's
Ifriends are trying to justify his acts
I by .this same "hurley-headed Johnnie."
Mr. Aiken did not explain that vote
of his against he "Pure (Food and
Drugs Act" to the satisfaction of the
voters of Anderson and the Tthird !
district. If you want the record in tine
matter ask fMr. Aiken to send you
copy of the Cengression? Record of
June 23rd, 1906. Look on page 9356 and
you will find Mr. >Aiken along with 16
others voting against this law, and the
only member of the South Carolina
delegation so voting . Three hundered
and forty-two voted for the measure.

Not Used to Wholesale Business.
A small party of prospective investors
were on a tour of inspection in
thp oil fields. Haviner smoked all the
cigars previously provided by the
agent who conducted the party, they
all went into the one store of the village
to get a fresh supply. An awkward
clerk came up to wait on them.
The cigar stock consisted of a limited
assortment of stogies, "two-fers," and
one box of a supposedly extra choice
brand that sold for 5 cents each. The
host of the party looked over the stock
and said. "I suppose you sell six of
of these nickel cigara for a quarter?"
The clerk took on a puzzled look,
scratched his head and drawled:

Ravage the Great and Wealthy Metropolis?Sources

Londou is a city and a county, but it
is so immense aud so diverse that it i
might almost be said to be a country- J
One of the most striking things about J
Londou is its utter inability to feed J
itself. In tiie matter of food its very i
immensity is tiie cause of its utter dependence.
If supplies were cut off
from without it would starve to death (
in a few weeks.
It is the richest city in the world.
It has palatial shops, thousands of.
stores and countless warehouses, but |
it produces practically nothing in the j
shape of foodstuff, it is like a great
baby that has to be fed by its mother, |
the world, and the produce of the world j
fills the mouths of its 7,500,000 inhabitants.

it all is conveyed In ships from abroad, j
Until the beginning of the nineteenth :
century London had 120 docks. Today I
they cover an area of twenty-two miles, j:
and wheat from the United States, i
Russia. Canada and the Argentine is ;
disgorged into their granaries from the j
holds of ships like so much sand, j
Many Londoners have never seen the
docks, but two loaves out of every j
three that they eat are made from the I
grain that comes to them through those ;
Most of the grain ships berth In the !
Victoria docks, but since they are so j
necessary to tUe city's welfare they !
have the right t'c moor at any quay in :
the port of London, a privilege no oth- i
er vessels possess.
The London butchers never cease to;
sound the praise of Euglish beef and!
mutton, but they sell little 'hat is real-j

The county of Kent I3 noted for Its j
fruits and vegetables, but London
would be unable to satisfy Its craving
for green stuff without the aid of other

tables annually brought into England
from abroad are worth close to $5,000,- j
There are several markets in the
metropolis for such wares?Spitalfields,

market?bui the bulk of the apples,
oranges, lemons, onions, potatoes and |
other roots that are brought from1

grown fruit and vegetables which
reach London from all points of the
compass In boxes and baskets piled .
high on lumbering vans.
Most of the market gardeners sell ;
their own wares at "the Garden," j
while the foreign stuff Is sold at auo- j
tion. For 300 years this pi ace has j
been the premier market of London for j
vegetables, fruits and flowers, and j
there are firms who have traded beneath
its glass roof for generations.
