One important political outcome of
the Democratic convention will "be
the strengthening of the candidacy
of Fred H. Dominick against Congressman
Aiken. Mr. Dominick as
floor manager of the minority of the
convention made a fight which will
help him in his district and will localize
a certain rrote.
(Heretofore Dagnail or ATicerson
and Horton of Belton have been
drawing water very deep, but the incidents
of the last few days will help
Dominick's candidacy. Aiken will
have another hard fight, but he is
perhaps accustomed to it, as he has
mever been without a tussle.?Columbia
We are pleased to quote this from
tne Kecora. rso one wuu win siuu
to consider for a moment will question
the fact that so far as capacity
and ability and fitness to represent
this district in the congress of he
TTnited States is concerned that Fred
Dominick is far superior to any man
in the race. But elections do not
always turn on*the question of fit-'
ness. Sometimes the most incompetent
man is elected. Some years they
4o Dot elect the man most qualified to
<11 the jobs. "We "believe it is going
_ V be different this year, cot only in
Ifae congressional field, but also in
Ike local county fields. The people |
are going to rote for the best fitted |
man for the Dosition. (Somehow we

You are entirely mistaken. Old j
Col. Drag is our favorite hero and we j
have not thought of abandoning him.
It has been so dry that it would not
do to drag the roads. As soon as
the rains come we will be sure to remind
the people of this useful and
economical colonel. We claim :o be
the pioneer newspaper in this State in
advocacy of the split log drag, and
we began the advocacy before we had (
ever seen a real drag. It is a wery [
useful and economical road machine.
From this distance from the field
of battle it does look to us that Mr.
McLaurin is about right in his estimate
of the action of the Manning
followers and the Cooper people. 'That

And yet we fail to see why McLaurin
should be so anxious to have
the election of a commissioner placed
in the primary. The argument set
out by his secretary, IMr. John K. j
Aull, seems sound and conclusive that j
t^e law permits the entering of all i
State officers which, would also include
the commissioner of insurance,
but what's the use? How it would
help the warehouse system we yet
fail to see. The committee could not
discriminate in favor of one office by
allowing the candidate more time
than other? and then suppose there
should be three or four candidates for
this position and all of them would
desire an hour each, when would the
campaign meetings end. If the people

we mistake not, these same gentlemen

platform. Mr. McLaurin was just
some fifteen or twenty years ahead
of his party and they made an effort

Anderson reelected Mr. Godfrey
as mayor and the entire old council.
It is stated that this is an endorsement
of the expenditure by council
of some $300,000 for city improvements,
such as paved streets and otherwise
keeping the town in the line
of progress. That is what we need
in Newberry, a live and progressive
city administration, something doing
for the improvement of our streets
and the paving of some of them. Our
city fathers seem absolutely satisfied.

The rains are coming and the split
log drag should be in evidence. If
used after the ram now the roads can
be put in fine condition. The lne dust
whe mixed with the rain will make
a paste under the use of the drag
that will make the roads hard and
smooth. Try it.
To he perfectly frank about it and
with n-> purpose to find fault we do
not think much of the electric fire
alarm whistle which is being tested
out here now. They have been trying

The steam pressure does not seem to

We should be just as proud of this
act of our forebears as we are that
they started a revolution to throw off

proud to be a daughter of the Ameri- i
