Manner by Those Amoi
A Boy Who Has Fo?

The following brief sketch was written
by the editor of The Belton Journal,
in Mr. Horcon's home town:
John A. Horton. our candidate for
congress, was born in August, 1874, on
his father's farm near Belton. As a
small boy he attended school here in
Belton, having to walk the distance of
four miles each day. He was deter- j

stood back on account of wind or
"weather, but was always present and
always led his class. From here he
went to the Patrick Military Institute,
in Anderson, teaching school there the
summer months to pay his tuition. He j
was graduated from this institution in |
1895. He then went into the grocery
business on a small scale, but soon
his business had grown to be one of
r,he largest in Belton.
'- in 1903 he organized the Farmer's
Bank of Belton with a capital stock of
$25,1)00. He met with a great deal of
opposition in this venture, especially
by Hon. A. C. Latimer, but when this
gentleman saw how determined Mr.
Horton was to succeed he withdrew
his objections, and was one of the big
'^Vi'st stockholders?showing how much
confidence he had in iMr. Horton. (The
bank has grown to a surplus of $17,000
under his able management. He did
all the work himself for several years,
but now he and his cashier are both
taxed to keep up with it.
He was mayor of Belton for three I
"Terms, retiring each time on account j
of business. It was during his admin-1
istration that lawlessness was practically
wiped out of Belton. His fearless
administration did honor to him,
accomplished the end he was striving
for?a law-abiding as well as a clean
town. He was always merciful where

John Horton Par Congress and Why
The Tribune Will Support Him.
Frcm Anderson Farmers' .Tribune.
Mr. John A. Horton, a well known
business man and farmer of Belton,
has disrobed, took a header over the
bank and dived into the congressional
race in the election to be held next1
summer. The editor of The Tribune
supported Mr. Horton in his last race j
and proposes to continue to stick to
him. iV'r. Horton was the only Anderson
man in the race last year and believing
it my duty to support a home
man, he got my suffrage, and I see no
reason why I should now swap horses.
Mr. Horton losing out in the first race,
I supported Mr. Dominick in the sec
ond. I no!: only supported Mr. Horton
in the first race on account of longstanding
friendshfp, but because he is I
competent and because of county pride.
For that reason, I will jump in with
him again and, sink or swim, I expect
to do all I can to elect him. I make
this announcement in order that there
may be no misunderstanding as to how
I stand on the congressional race. In
this race, as in every other race or
question, I will not be found on the
Mr. Horton and myself have not only
been life-long friends, but we are old
schoc' mates, having attended the old
Patrick Military Institute together.
In an article I wrote to one of the
local papers last winter, in commenting
on the fact that the Third Congressional
District had no representa
live and tnat Amaerson couniy naa
been completely ignored by Governor
Manning in k:.s appointments, as well
as by Congressman (?) Aiken and the
L'nited States senators, I stated that
little counties like Abbeville not only
got all the honors, but the offices as
well, and called on the people of An
derson county to support an Anaerson
man next summer for congress. The
people of this county are continually
grumbling because it is ignored, when
it should be if it hasn't enough count?
pride to stick to home men when they
announce for state and national offices.
N'ow that Mr. Horton will make the
race for Anderson county, it is the
duty of Anderson county voters to
stick to him.
I frankly concede to every voter the
right to make his own choice in the
mntfpr nf a candidate for congress, and
1 presume he will do so. I know T
will. Then when the result is an
