The recent contest in t..e election
of congressman :rom the Third district
is perhaps one of the most rer
markable in the history of the district.
Remarkable for the high and
honorable conduct of the aspirants,
remarkable for the zeal and energy
with which thev entered the race.
But abov? all else was t'.:e loyalty of
the people to their friends, or favorite
-candidates, in the contest. They
were unmoved by oratory or personal
, appeal of as able and as honorable
contestants as ever sought public
honors. Remarkable for the election
of a man of principle, possess
ing the courage at an wines 10 express
his opinions of public matters
regardless of the popular breeze, and
"who dependend upon the correctness
of his views for vindication by the
great public heart. He has never
had any concalments and has never
hesitated. His life, his actings and
doings have been as an open book.
The campaign'is also remarkable
for the number of high-toned aspirants
who entered the race.
Ron. Fred. H. DonnnicK is an aoie
lawyer at the Newberry ibar. His
ability as a speaker, or his po-wer as
an orator was recognized in the campaign.
After his speech at Abbeville
it was reported by a hearer that ''he
swept the court house." , Not so long
ago Mr. Dominick was an influential
member of t>.e legislature from Newberry.
Today he is assistant attorney
There are few, if any, Detter men

Mr. John A. Horton of Relton is a
self-made man who did a good job
at the work. In business he has prosipered
to a remarkable degree. He
is not only comfortably off in this

orable contestants like these in the,
.field against him there is little doubt
tiat the result was problematical.'
Mr. Aiken had not only the above1
named contestants, but in addition
iiad some honest and active oppo ents
who fought him 'to the finish, j
That an open and courageous man j
like Mr. Aiken should meet and defeat
wise and sagacious politicians
is gratifying to his friends.
Because of his courage and hon-]
-esty of speech Mr. Aiken naturally ;

least. It was natural too that ac- j
tivity of opponents of (Mr. Aiken '
should inspire patriotism and hope in j
the minds and hearts of able and j
competent men who may 'have had an j
-eye on the important job.
v But it seems that the activity of
contestants and the energy of oppo- ,
nents resulted in an increased sup-1
port for Mr. Aiken at the second elec- i
tion as is evidenced by the greater j
vote when the ballots were ewer :
than at the first primary. This fact in .
the :ace of the strongest contest in j
-which opposing forces worked hardest |
is the strongest and .highest testimon- j
lal of public confidence that could be
offered to any American citizen. In an j
honorable race with honorable men. j
]\Ir. Aiken has reason to be proud and
the district has made no mistake.

in I lie Battle of the Aisne.
The State. 22nd.
Tee nature or tne struggle uei*?en
the Germans and the allied forces on
the battle front in France, which
stretches from Xoyon in the west to
Verdum, is indicated by the latest official
communications irorn the French
, war offi.ee, which says that the engagements
have become less violent.
From ihis would seem as if both
sides had re.* ned t'.:e conclusion that
rhe srainine of a few yards of ground
hardly warranted the losses entailed
and that preparations are on the way
for a strong offensive movement at
some strategic point.
The French also report they have
made progress in the territory between
Rheims and the Argonne forest.
On their left wing they have reached
the heights of Lassigny. With the
French on this part of the battle line

the beginning of the war in the loss
The casualty lists show that 797
British officers are among the killed,
wounded and missing, a very high
percentage of the total losses. Among
these are 32 colonels and lieutenant
colonels, 85 majors and 246 captains.
The Coldstream Guards have lost 31

exhausted. The human machine
is weakening under the frightful de

j Another factor which has had a

is rendered much more difficult. It
j is even said tlhe Germans can no

' effective promptness on account of
[heavy roads. The men are camping

are suffering from lack of food.
While neither side claims a decisive
outcome, there appears to' be good
reason to "believe that the battle is

Military opinion both in London
and Paris leans to the conviction that
the present lines, battered for ten
days, soon will have to show noticeable
changes. The fighting has been
fierest on the allies' left, where desperate
efforts have been made to turn
the flank of the German army under
Gen. Von Kluck. Von Kluck has been

making desperate and persistent efforts
to turn the right wing of the
allies, resting on Verdum. The help
of this fortified position is of advantage
to the French.
On the centre the fortunes of war
fluctuate. The positions now held by
the Germans were well selected and
well fortified. Some of their heavy
artillery is described as resting upon

Berlin, in an official statement,
asserts that the fire of the

the cathedral and the necessity of
bombarding it is regretted.
The German emperor has taken up
his quarters in Luxemiburg, according
to a Paris dispatch. To guard against
