voted just as I did. It appears that!
when he got to examining the statement
as to my record, as furnisueu
him by Baker, he found so little
to criticise that he decided to attack
me on my vote on the canal tolls.
It appears that .:e abandoned his own
concictions in the hope of gaining
votes if he could s:ow that I was not
in sympathy with the president.
The l"*e of Money.
It is charged that I have spent a ;
great deal of money in my campaign,
that I have "degraded and corrupted!
politics." This must be amusing to;
most people, wao know the .acts. I ;
nave never spent a great deal of i
money, because I have not had it to
spend. I 'have had the good fortune j
to defeat several rich men, who spent!
money lavishly, who had more money j
than I could have raised if my life |
i had depended on it. Since the cam- j
r paign publicity law ;has been in er- i
K feet I have filed at the close ot each '
campaign a sworn statement as to my
, expenses, and if I have sworn false-I
ly I am subject to prosecution in the
courts and fine and imprisonment.
But this charge is so absured that 1
can hardly give it serious consideration.
' Little Tilings."
It is charged that my work in ;
congress has consisted of "little j
things.'' Well life itself is made up
of little things. I have always believed j
that a man> who does little things
well does a tolerably big thing. I j
have tried to give close and prompt \
attention to the wants of the people ;
of my district. The congressman who ;
tries to attend to his duties faithfully:
eats no idle bread. Mo man can j
? truthfully say t'cat the interests of
the Third district have suffered since
I have been in congress. On the contrary,
it would be very easy to snow j
that the Tiird district has fared,
much better than many others.
It is given to but few members of
congress to get their names connect- j
ed with national legislation. Take the j
new tariff law, for instance. It is ;
known as the Underwood law, and'
rightly so. for Mr. Underwood, as J
chairman of the Ways and Means'
committee, introduced it in' the j
house and skillfully handled it. And .
yet every Democratic member of con- i
gress had a hand in making that bill'
and in its passage. It was considered
by the Democratic caucus ana amena- |
ea by Democratic votes on the floor
of the house. The same thing is true
of the new currency law, known as
the Glass-Owen law. It was introduc- |
ed in the house by Hon. Carter Glass. I
chairman o: the committee on Bank- i
ing and Currency, and nobody is jeal- j
ous of him because it bears his name.'
Yet fte will cheerfully bear testi-j
mony that every Democratic member ,
of congress had a hand in its making |
and in its enactment. The same thing |
is true of the Smith cotton futures j
bill, and the Lever bill for agricul-:
tural extension work. They -were |
ampndpd and rewritten many times j
"before they finally became law. The
same thing will be true of my bill to
provide for long-time credits on farm
lands at low interest. That bill may
pass and it will be known as the
Aiken law, if I remain in congress,
but it will doubtless undergo many
r amendments before it gets up to the
^resident for his signature. Tiiis is1
true of all legislation, for in almost
every instance, legislation is the result
of compromise. There are many
men in congress, and they have many
- 1 J
minds, and taey are as a ruie gwu
minds. When a bill gets through and
becomes a law it is the work of the
combined wisdom of the entire body.
I cannot brag on myself, for selfI*
praise is -half scandal, but I do be- ;
' lieve that my record in congress will
11 compare at least favorably with t'he
k average, and I would like for some
' unbiased man to make the comparison
nick that I have secured the passage
of only 66 bills since I have been in
congress. I have not counted them,
but if there were as many as 66 bills
that is probably 50 per cent greater
than any other member of congress
"has to his credit during my service.
During one congress I secured the
passage of more bills than any oober
W member of congress. Democrat or
try. It is claimed that most of tfaese
ff > were "small bills." That is probably
0:) true, and if it is true it proves that I
bave been looking after the interests
of the small fellows in my district
" - . . . A a.*, _ ^-1
instead 01 trying to serve me uig ieilows,
that while trying to do my full
duty on matters of national importance
I have always found time to at
tend to the small matters which dijfe,
! rectly affect my people at home, no
matter ho-w humble.
What Dominick Did.
L I had 'hoped to go through this
campaign without making any direct
Hy reference to Mr. Dominick, but since
|F he has seen fit to help circulate false
statements about me I will tell the
truth about him. In 1902 Mr. Dominick
was a member of the legislature from
\ftwhftrrv oountv. There was a bill I
pending to increase the salary of the
sheriff of Orangeburg county. It had
passed one 'house, and had passed the
other house with an amendment, and
had passed a conference committee
and got into free conference. On the .
last day of the session the desired 1
c:ange was incorporated in the genera!
supply bill, and then the Orange- j
burg delegation asked that the indiri- j
dual bill be killed by having the tree
conference report a disagreement. But
in the rush of the closing hours Mr.
Dominick, who was on the free con
ference committee, wrote a report and i
carried if to the other members of.
the committee ana told themi
he had arranged it to suit!
the parties interested and they took !
his word for it and signed it without
reading it. The bill was about to be
put through and become a law, when
Wm somebody discovered that Mr. Dominick
'had struck out all before and aftpr
tbp pna/?tinp- -a-rvrds anri had writ
I ten a new bill entirely, providing for
the establishment of breweries or beer
bottling concerns in certain r/ties. !
Mr. Dominick's report was rejected. !
and in all the history of South Caro-'
]ina no member of the legislature j
ever revived sue., severe condemnation
from his colleagues as Mr. Doniir.ick
received on the floor of the
house and senate. There are doubtless
men living in every county in
tae Third district today who were in ;
the legislature at tv.at time, and who I
will test: y as to the trutu of what j
I say. It is interesting to add in this I
connection that when Mr. Dominick <
offered for re-election to the legislature
t. e following year he was over- (
whelmingly repudiated by nis nome
people, receiving only something like
400 votes in t'.ie entire county. And !
his home people tell me that in 'Ms i
race for congress this year he will
again be repudiated and that he will
fail to carry his home county by many
hundreds of votes.
They have not forgotten how he I
ma Ho tho r?nnntv nay him an out-rase- !
~ . w I
ous fee for doing work which it was ,
:Ms duty to do, while drawing a
salary as clerk a: the board of county
commissioners, without extra compensation.
I have tried to answer this slanderous
attack fully, although I believe it
has not cost me votes, because I 1
felt that I owed to my friends, who
T ~ o. rx a 4-r-v v l'r> + r A noct
nave ueen au n uc LU mc ui |
to do so. If I have not answered any j
essential charge it is because I have j
overlooked it. I have been necessarily j
busy here since the attack appeared j
in the Newberry paper.
I uaive linked Dominick's name with 1
Baker's in this matter, for I have j
known for months that Baker has |
been furnishing Dominck with am- i
munition. Dominick probably realizes
by now fiat t~e ammunition is
faulty and won't shoot straight. Many
people know of Baker's frequent trips
to Anderson and other places in the 1
Third district, more than 500 miles
from his post of duty, to confer with |
Dominick. It is notorious taat Baker j
(has been neglecting his work in order
to go to South Carolina to engineer ,
a campaign against me; while I have i
been here in Washington looking af- j
ter the interests entrusted to my
"""" T' ?* T Viovo nrritton ohniif

Baker is not true he has a remedy. J
I cordially invite him to sue me for !
Congress 'has been in session al-j
most continuously ior the past four !
years, and 1 have not been able to!
canvass the district each year, as j
had been my custom before, and as I !
wanted to do. We have been in ses- j
sion continuously since April, 1913,
and it looks today as if we will be in 1
session until the fourth of March, j
when this congress expires by limi- j
tation. I went to the Third district
in the early part of August and made
the campagin . tour as arranged by
the executive committee, speaking at
pj?r>h cnnrt house Durine that week
the European war suddenly broke
loose, and we found one morning that
t'.ie South was :acing a great disaster :
because of the threatened drop in the
price of cotton caused by the closing j
of toe European markets. I had j
hoped to spend. the remainder of the
time until the primary in the district, j
visiting my friends, but the situation;
became so serious by the close of the J
campaign tour that I hurried here, and i
have been 'here ever since. I .felt that:
if the people of the district ever did
need my service in Washington they
needed tfoem in this crisis.. I wait tc
get away from here next week, but do
not know that I will be able to do so.j
I will arrange to have this urticle I
nrinted in as many of the newspa
pers of the district as possible in
their next issue, and will also have
some copies printed in circular form.
I will ask my friends to try to get
this article generally circulated over
the entire district at once.- I
thank my friends in advance for this,
as I thank them tor all their goodness
to me in the nast. j
And in conclusion. I want to say J
that I have lived all my life in the j '
Third district, more than half a cen- j (
tury, and am now serving my sixth j
term in congress. My life has been; ?
an open book. I know the people of
the district, and I believe they know
me. If, after all these years, the people
are willing to retire me on the
slanderous charges, made at the
eleventh hour of the campaign by a ,
proven scoundrel. I am ready to step
down and out. I believe, though, that
tee people of the Third district believe
in decency and fair play, and 1
tbat on the 25th of August they will
rebuke th3 methods used against me
in no uncertain terms.
Let me close thi1- article, which i3
already lengthy, wit> the lollowing
words from Speaker Champ Clark:
"Men should not be sent to congress
simply to gratify tbeir own personal
ambitions but because tfney can be of
service. Having proved that they are
of service, wisdom dictates that they 1
continue to be of service; and it may
be confidently asserted that the (
value of the service o: a man of
pacity, character and industry and 1
good habits increases in exact pro- 1

to every constituency in t)he land. The
