Some of Congressman Aiken's closest
frienmd, who are following the congres
sional- chndidates around- the districty
are circulating the report that the sec
dnd race for congress in this district ,
will be between Aiken and Dominick,
thus trying to help along the Dominick
boom. It is apparent that Mr. Aiken
and his political advisers would like for
him and Mr. Dominick to make the sec
ond race, because they feel sure that I
Mr. Aiken could win over Mr. Domi
nick. They remernber that when these
two gentlemen ran a second race t
two years ago Mr. Aiken had no trouble
in winning in a fair and square election
and they are pretty sure they can re
peat this year if given the same oppon
ent in the second race.
At this time it looks as if Mr. Aiken
will be in the second race unless he con
tinues to lose ground as he has during
the past two weeks. If he loses as
much ground in the next three weeks
as he has in the past two he will not be
in the second race is our opinion.
There is no doubt in our mind that if
John A. Horton is put in the second
race he will win over Mr. Aiken or any
other man in the race. Mr. Aiken's
friends also believe this and as it looks
like Mr. Horton will be in the second
race they are fighting him and some are
trying to create wrong impressions in
favor of some other man.
If the election were to come ofl' to
day Mr. Horton would be in the second
race and would be our next congress
man. If his friends sit steady in the
boat he will be elected.
This article is not intended to injure
any one, but it is a statement of facts
which are apparent to close observers,
and is intended to help keep professional
politicians from pulling the wool over
the people's eyes.
We wan t all candidates to get a square
deal. We also want the people to get
a square deal and we intend to do what
we can to see that they do get it.
If you have your own interest at
heart. beware of the professional poli
tician and his tales.
ACCOMPANIED by our wife we spent'
two of the most pleasant days within
our memory at the more than hospitable
home of Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Spearman
at Plabtown, in Anderson county, last
week. This is one of the finest sections
of Anderson county and it is natural
that some of the finest people live there.
Crops' there are line, especially cotton.
Mr. Spearman has 500 acres of cotton
and expects to make over 300 bales.
Other crops are also good. While An
derson county can beat Pickens making
cotton Pickens can beat Anderson mak
ing corn. Mr. Spearman also has a fine
watermelon patch. tho there are not as
many melons in it now as there were
before we got there. Between the wa
termelons and a boundless supply of
other good things to eat, prepared by
one of the best cooks in the land, we
came very near incapacitating ourself
