Tremendous crowds gathered in front of The Intelligencer of
fice last nteht to watch the returns come in. The crowd was far
from orderly and at one time it seemed that a serious'clash was to
come between the police of the city and some of the county peace
officers.- The disturbance was quelled, however, and no arrests were
But little surprise was occasioned in Anderson over any of the
returns for county offices, lt had been freely predicted that Nicho/-:
son would sweep the field for probate judge and the tremendous
vote he received brought hearty cheers from the crowds.
Winston Smith had been picked as the leader in the race for
county auditor and he certainly did not disappoint any of his support
ers. Smith polled a tremendous vote.
In the race for congress from the third district there is even yet
room for doubt, as it may be that Dominick can get enough votes to
put him in the second race, although indications are that Aiken will
be re-elected on the first ballot. ' .
Summers and Sherard ran a very close race, indeed, for the
state senate froin Anderson county and it will be necessary to secure
the vote from the missing county boxes to tell who will be elected.
The great surprise in Anderson county, both for the anti-Blease
v faction and the Blease supporters came in the race for the United
States senate. The supporters of the governor, basing-their prediction
upon the 2,6oo majority he received in 1?12, claimed that he. would

London, August 25.-Lard Kitchener
made his first speech as minister of
war in the honse of lords today. 1
He said war undoubtedly would re
strain the forces of the ' empire and
entail big sacrifices. He laid em
phasis on the. fact that his position
in the- cabinet Involved adherence to
neither party. He said:. ?
"The terms on which I am serving
are the same as those under which
some of the finest portions of our
manhood, now so willingly stepping
forward to join the colors, are engsg
Ing That is to ssy my term of office
ls for the duration of tbe war or for
three years If the war should last
longer than that.
"It has been asked why this period
bas ben limited. It is because if this
disastrous war be prolonged and no
one can foretell for a certainty Its
duration, that after three years of war
others will take our places and e
this matter through.
"There will be serious conflicts
which undoubtedly will strain the
forces of our empire and undoubtedly
considerable sacrifices to oui' people
will be entailed. These wilt wilUngly
be borne for our honor and for the
preservation ot our .position in the
world and they will ba shared by our
Dominion who are now sending con
tingents and giving assistance of every
kind to the mather country
"Our expeditionary force has taken
the. field on the French northwest
frontier and advanced in the neighbor
hood ot Mpns (in Belgium.) Our
troops already have been for 36 hours
in contact with the superior forces
ot the German invader. During that
time they maintained the best tradi
tions of the British soldier, and behav.
ed with the utmost gallantry. The
movements they have been called up
on to execute have been these which
demanded the greatest steadiness of
a soldier and skill in tho command
ers." ' .-^iff

Jules Jusserand. the French am

"We did not suceced-that is true,

suffered but the Germans suffered al
so, especially the Prussian guard. Our
movement was an offensive one. In

line of defense we now stand.
