nor.nominate of South Carolina, in a
statement issued Wednesday while in
Columbia. Mr. Manning came over
from his home in Sumter and was
greeted by hundreds of Columbians as
he walked along Main street to his
headquarters. The following state
ment was' given out by Mr. Manning:
"1 wish to express my thanks to the
whole people of South Carolina for
the tremendous vote I received means
but one thing?that the principles I
advocate, law and order, peace and
harmony, struck a responsive chord
in the hearts' of our people.
"I cannot single out any set of men
to whom the result of this election is
due, since so many men in so many
places worked so steadfastly and so
earnestly for our cause. To the farm
ers, the merchants, the mechanics, the
textile workers, the traveling and pro
fessional men, and to all others' who
contributed to the wonderful result,
my profound thanks are due and are
hereby given. Except in this state

heartfelt appreciation to the loyal
friends who worked with and for me.
"I would be wide of the mark if I

Latest News of All The
l atest official reports from the French government indicate that
the offensive tactics undertaken in the last day or two by the allied
armies have forced the Germans back at various points in the battle
line, which extends from a few miles east of Paris to Verdun, a dis
tance of about 2L>o miles. '
Bordeaux reports officially that the British army has crossed the
river Marne and that the Germans hav fallen back 25 miles. Efforts
of the Germans to, break the French lines on the Ourcq river are
officially reported to have failed.
Seemingly *.he Germans are short of ammunition at the front
and are having difficulties in provisioning, and the French war de
partment officially announces that "on the whole the Germans ap
pear to be oeginning a movement of retreat."
.The Russian and Austrian armies continue to oppose each other '
in a long drawn out'engagement in the Lublin district, Russian Poland.
An official statement issued at Petrograd declares that both Austrian
and German troops have been dislodged from theirfixed position
and have retired towards the south.
The battlefield in France is that over which Napoleon fought in
1814, with entrenched camps on both wings and the center. Paris I
covers the left wi::g, Chalons the center and Verdun the right, (while
mobile columns of troops arc ready to join in.
Vitry-Le-Francois nnd Montmirail seem to be th? points of the
chief engagements and there the carnage has been the heaviest. The
allies aim at preventing the German turning movement, with a mass
oft roopsc omposed of many army corps.

and colonies, in which he protests that war was not of Great Britain's
