Columbia, August 27.?This has been a day of many variation?
whh reference to the votes received by die respective candidates for
governor, and their incoming returns from county democratic com
mittees brought changes of fortune which caused much excitement.
First it was Robert A. Cooper who was in the lead and then Richard
I. Manning, and with each report there would be another change until
finally it was seen that nothing could change the lead gained by the
man from Sumter, and at midnight it was announced positively that
he would be the candidate to go into the second race with John G.

A MERCHANT ASSAULTED
Only Fight Reported From the Recent
Primary In Columbia.
Columbia, August 27.?The only dis
order during. the election In this
county^ was when Bill Walles a noted
bad. man, assaulted J. B. .Peuland, a
grocer in the city, who had driven
out to a suburban box with some can
didates to see how the returns were
Peuland's nose was. broken His
statement is that be was talking with
some gentlemen When Waltos came
up and after some casual conversation
"Arc you a Bleasite?" and I an
swered, 'I haven't said what I am.
Then he Said, 'Over there is the city
.line and I adviso you to get back
across tt*> I smiled-and said, 'I don't
see why I can't stay out here as long
as I like.' He made no answer, but
hit me. oho the raajft* knocking mo

FOR CONGRESS V
It has been a matter, of doubt as
to whether or not .Congressman Aikoh
had been returned in the first primary
or. would have to run over.. The of
ficial returns show that Mr. Alken Is
short of a majority by just 321 votes.
The Intelligencer stated yesterday
that Mr. Aiken had more than enough
to go In on the first ballot, but it ap
peared later'that there had been an
error in the count .and instead of Mr.
Aikon havlng .3,308'votes In Anderson,
he bad hut 15.216. The reported voto
for Dominick. in Abbeville was much
smaller than the official.vote:.

The French and British armies on a battle line 250 miles across
still are strenously opposing the advance of the German forces across
tfie French frontier. The British troops are reported to be occupying
a strong position and are supported by the French on both flanks.
While the Germans have occupied the French cities of Lille,
Valenciennes and Ronbaix, the official report from the war office de
scribed hopefully, from the viewpoint of the allies, operations to the
east. Apparently the French troops in the Vosges district have re
sumed the offensive and have forced the Germans to retire on the
St. Die side.
Former ambassador at Berlin, Sir WiUian Edward Goschen, In
an official report published by the government in the form of a white
paper, tells in an interesting way of his interviews with the German
minister for foreign affairs, Herr von Jagow and tie Imperial Ger
man Chanca?pr, DJ. von Bethmann-Hollweg, at the time of the Brit
ish ultimatum, demanding that Germany should cease violation of
Belgian neutrality. According to the official report Herr von Jagow
deplored the step which Great Britain was about to take as he saw
the end of his policy and that of the imperial chancellor, which had
been to make friends with Great Britain and then through Great
Britain get closer to France.
Similarly the imperial chancellor was taken back. He declared
Great Britain's action was "terrible to a degree" and declared that
his policy, by this step, "was tumbled down like a house of .cards."
He held Great Britain responsible for all the terrible events that might
happen and asked if the British government had thought at what price
the compact to defend Belgium's neutrality would be kept.
. The French commander-iii-chief, General Joffre, in a communi
cation to Field Marshal Sir John French, commander of the British
forces, pays high tribute to valor of the Britsh -army, which, he says,
"did not hesitate, but threw its whole strength against forces of great
numerical superiority." V
It is reported that British marines have occupied Ostend tQ pre
vent the Germans from getting a foothold on the English channel.
The German steamer Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse has been sunk by ?
British cruiser off the west coast of Africa.
The situatiuii between Japan and Austria is described In Tokio
as "a rupture of diplomatic relations, not war."
