"Tee condition of that cotton crop
on August 25, which was 7S per cent,

"A yield per acre o.: 197 pounds

I have your good letter inquiring
about the legislative record of Congressman
Wyatt Aiken and wanting to
know if he has been working and vot
i i ing for legislation that the Farmers
Union has been urging on behalf of
! t the farmers and the people.
I have read Secretary Baker's letf

I am familiar with toe facts and would
. state most positively that Congressman
Aiken inserted in the Congress
sional Record during the second session
of the 5Sth?congress an extended
speech in favor of foreign immigra:
tion, as well as introduced a bill, H.

MEETING# TO BE CALLED

In Accordance With Action of the

At the South Carolina cotton con- ;
sress on September 1st, in 'Columbia it j
was urged that all township commit- !
tees call their township meetings and j
organize said townships just as early i
as possible. v
! Having attended said conference as
a representative from Newberry coun!
ty, I will ask that the committee from
each township give this their atten,;
tion and have as large attendance
as nossible. '
\ " !
I will have printed pledges for!
. distribution to each township in a
? few days.
The following are committees from

namely,# Lever, Finley, Ftagsdale, "
Byrnes, and others, who have met
with, conferred with,, and advised with F
the committee, as has Senator Smith, v
one of the best friends the farmers v
ever had in Washington. s
T.ie. congressional Record shows, t
as does the Congressional Directory, o
that Congressman Aiken has not 1:

any committee o<f direct interest to g
the farmers and the people of South r.

With reference to the 'Congress- r
man's rural credits bill H. R. 16028, t
and his rural carriers salary bill',
H. R. 18252, he would not contend v
t':.at either will ever be reported to n
the house for consideration. His rural a
credits proposition is imparctial and 2
impossible. President Wilson indicat- s
ed unqualified opposition to any such v
plan in his annual message of Decern- 1]
ber 2nd and Congressman Aiken f
must have known about the adininis- t
tration's attitude and what the joint s
sub-committees of the house and sen- t
ate were formulating at the time he c
introduced the bill in April. As a
matter of fact and to be quite frank,
these bills /and his speech on the
subject were intended exclusively and
solely for "Home consumption" and S
Death of P. Brooks Hutchinson. e
Mr. Preston Brooks Hutchinson died , I
at xiis heme in this city Wednesday j s
night at 11:30 o'clock, after a brief | I
illness of paralysis, with which he was r
stricken a week ago last Sunday, and i v
from which ho never regained con-1

He was a business man o. Newberry, ! c

re what politcians around here call
bunk for farmers/'
Wit a reference to his vote on the
'ure Food Law, I would sav that there
>*as only one record vote and that
:as when the senate bill, Xo. 83, pased
the house,*.June 23, 1906. On
hat occasion he "is recorded as the
nly congressman from South Caroina
voting against the measure. It
s true that there are 16 other con;ressmen,
some southern and some
orthern. voting with him. but there
re also 241 congressmen recorded as
oting for the bift, among t;'iOse votng
or t'.ie bill being good states rights
)emocrats like Champ Clark, Under
^ood, Finley, Johnson, Patterson and
n fact seven eighths of the southern
ongressmen that voted. To be co :
istent would have led t':e congressmen
to vote against the Webb-Kenvon
ill, direct election of senators and
ther measures, and would prevent
nuch of the needed reform legislation
hat changed conditions require.
1 have tried to avoid being in any
^*ay personal. I know the congress
nan and bear him no ill will person.lly
at all, but as a public servant

I m forced in reply tc
