Where Congressman From
This District Voted Ag
The address of lion. Wyatt Aiken,
c; "ianidate for congress, at the senato
rial campaign mneeting in Greenwood
esterdiy was delivere I too late for an
extended account in vesterday's issue
of the Journal. Mr. Aiken spoke about
1i iniu1tes and confimed his remarks en
tirely to the public record of Congress
Ile showed by the .ongressional Ree
erd that Mr. Dominick opposed the fol
lowing measures favored by the admin
Against the resolution declaring that
a state of war exists between this coun
try and Germany.
Against the draft act.
Against national prohibition.
Against the espionage, or spy, act.
Against the act non-exempting di
vinity students from compulsory mili

Against the censor bill.

Against his party on the vote to
purge from the Record the speech of
liclin. of Alabama, in which lie blis
tered Maso n and BIritton, Republicans,
[ f Illinois, who were against the admin
Ilr. Aiken said that Mr. D)ominick
did not vote on the resolution making
uan and thy' lawaiian Islands dry
and that he was also against the ad
ini stration on the matter of taxing
the third issue of bonds.
On the last proposition Mr. Aiken
spoke as follows.
Mr. )ominick has claimed credit for
having congress reverse itself on the
measure proposing to exempt banks
from state taxes to tne extent of the
investment ' of their capital stock in
I ant perfectly willing to concede him
all credit due, but it should he borne in
min. that congress did not reverse it
self on this issue until after that l)em
ocratic louse I.eade r, Mr. Kitchin, had
Now, as to the issue itself, a few
sidelights will'how that Mr. Dominick's
attitud oin this, n1:4 on every other qiues
tionl touching thi' vigorous prosecution
of the war, was liastile to the admiznis
I need not remindl yo u w ithi what pa -
triotism t ihe people of this counntry have
res pondled to the first, second andl thirdl
I .iberty I .oans. Ninri need I remindl you
that in every. instance a major pitortion
of t heose boirds have been floated (direet
.y or i ndiirectly through the banks. If
an indlividual submscribedo. in most cases
he paid do wn ten or twenty pier cent,
aond the banks carried the balance. It
is an in('ontroivertihb-' fact that not one
* ~of thiese' loans coul have becen floated
butit for tile patriotic aid of the banks
and with all the support they could pmos
.ibly- give. the bonds time and again 1
hayv' dropped below par. If the ardor
''f the banks is chilled, then to that ex-<
*tent is the floating of the bonds chilled. i
Whatever else may be said of bankers
* ly those who would make capi tal out of
abusing them, nobody will say of them(
- as a class that they are fools Then I
nobody could honestly say that they I
wouild invest their c'api tal in bondls in a
market that i~s glutted, at a low fixed(
rate purely as an inivestment. On the I
* contrary, every dollar they invest in I
bonds is at a sacrifice, and nobly have<
they madle and w.ill they continue to
make the saciiice. There is not the
slightest danger that they will retain I
the investment longer- thani a return tot
healthy and normal conditions will en- I
able them to dlispose~i of the bonds with-t
out injury to the government.r
Government bondls were issued be
fore this wvar, and only in one instance,r
in this state, a trust company doing an\
inactive business, wVas there a large in- I
vestment of banking capital. This caset
was carried to the Supreme Court 1.v l
Mr. Dominick, as assistant attorney I
general, the priniciples of which he em- I
bodied in his speech against the amend
mnent (or section) proposing to exempt
so much of a bank's capital~ from tax a
tion as is invested in Liberty Bonds.
The United States government does
not tax State bonds. It does not tax
the salaries of State officers even of the
smallest sub-division. Then in the name
of humanity; in the name of world free
dom; in justice to our sons and to our
- sons and brothers who are barring the
way of the Hun whose slimy trail bears
in its wake the blood of the old and the
rape and the wanton destruction of the
young, why should any one who calls
himself an American citizen undertake
to block this government In its efforts
to save itself from vassalage end the
human race from a damnable tyranny
that hell itself cannot equal.
What are a few year's taxes on a few
thousand dollars in a few banks in South
Carolina, or the Nation, as compared
with the inmportaece of raising the sin
ews of war to support your boy and1
mine in battling against the lust and
fury of the most powerful and brutal
nation that ever cursed this earth?
Mr. McAdoo plainly stated that he
asked for the passage of this amend
ment as some little acknowledgement
of the patriotic services of the banks in
-flatineg the severn1 liberty lans. And1
in the face of this appeal from a man
whose unselfish devotion to the cause of
his country, whose wisdom and hercu.
lean undertakings in behalf of bleeding
humanity have been the wonder of the
world, your Congressman spoke against
and cast his vote against the amend
The little wooden crosses that mark
the resting places of our boys 'over
yonder' cry to heaven for shame that
one who assumes to represent this na
tion should attempt to debase its prin
ciples as to cavil over a few dollars of
taxes for the States when the nation's
very existence hangs in the balance.
Surely the states are not less inter
ested than the nation in the cause of
world freedom, and to try to make po'
litical capital out of tne saving of a
pittance of taxes to the states im oppo
sition to the effects of the nation to
stem the tide of blood that is deluging
the world, is unworthy of a represen
tative of the United States congress.
Then let the gentleman have credit for
it if his conscience will justify it. But
God forbid that the people who are dis
interestedly supporting the president
and the nation should ever take such a
sordid view of the responsibility that is
resting upon us and our duty to meet it.
Replies to Aiken's Attack
On His Record
In the report of the speech delivered
by Mr. Aiken at Greenwood. at the
senatorial campaign meeting, which
was published in the Greenwood Daily
,Journal, my record was misrepresented.
This report contains several false state
ments as to my record in congress, and
notwithstanding the fact that these
have been repeatedly called to Mr.
Aiken's attention, his friends are con
tinuing to have this report published in
ertain newspapers in the Third Dis
rict without any correction. This ac
ion on their part shows the kind of
ampaign that is being waged against
ne by Mr. Aiken and his friends
lie says that I voted against the
!spionage, or spy, act. The Record
chows, page 1841 of the permanent Rec
>rd, 1882 temporary Record, that the
)ill passed the House by a vote of 259
0 107, and that Dominick 'OTE) FOR
L'HE PASSAGE OF THE BILL, and
OT AGAINST it, as charged by
Aiken. There were three other votes
in this bill, all of which related to the
;ection providing for a press censor
ship. I voted against press censorship.
He says that 1 voted against the act
xempting divinity students from com
mulsory military service. The Record
>f April 25th, 1918, page 6071, shows
:hat,1 voted FOR this exemption, and
NOT AGAINST it, as charged by
lie says that I voted against the sol
lier (volunteers) vote to give the states
:redit Ifor volunteers. The Record of
\pril 12th, 1918, page 5439, shows that
I voted FOIL this provision and NOT
AGAINST it, as charged by Aiken.
The Record of May 9th, 1918, page
t786, further shows that I voted that
the House should insist on this provision
remaining in the bill.
lie says that I voted against the de
termination of the president not to send
Roosevelt to France. I Di)D NOT vote
to send Roosevelt to France. I voted
to authorize the president to raise and
maintain by voluntary enlistment not
to exceed four infantry divisions, the
officers of which were to be selected as
provided by Section One of the Draft
Act, no one being allowed to enlist who
was under twenty-five years of age.

vhich he referred to two members of
ongress, Mason andi Britten, in an un
iarhiamentary manner, in which he used
heir names in connection wvith "trait

vith stirring up enmity to the diraft law,
vith no proof to support the charges.

salance of the speech is in the Record

btained one week's leave of absence,
ihich week was the only one dul-in g the
time I have been in Congress that I have
been away from its sessions, with the
single exception of a few days when I
was called home by illness in my family.
Mr. Aiken's friend, George P. Hill, of
Newberry, says, in an article published
in the Columnbia State and some of the
newspaper8 of this District, that I vo
ted, againust the soldiers' credit bill,
which protects our soldiers from the
greed of merciless creditors. The Rec
ord of October 4th, 1917, shows that
this bill passed the House without a dis
senting vote. I VOTED~ FOR THE

successful fight agaimst the exemption
of the banks from taxation, by which
