CONGRESSMAN WYATT AIKBN.
He is of Great Value to His District and
Will No Doubt Take High Rank
In the House.
The following is from the Wash
ington correspondence of the Green
The three new South Carolinians,
Aiken, Croft and Legare, fare about
like other new men in committee
assignments, and what they will
get in the future will be determined
by the rank they take. Legare is
already recognized as a bright
young man who has a future, and
Wyatt Aiken's strong personality,
hard sense and general capacity for
making friends promises to land
him away to the front as a member
of the House. He can't get there
in one term, but if his constituents
give him a chance it is predicted by
old members of the House that he
will take high rank. He is the
kind of fellow to make warm friends
in the House and is enough of a
politician to know the art of recip
rocity in House deals. Legare is a
man of similar characteristics, and
these two fellows, with young Le
ver, will mak a trio worth watching.
It is the brightest trio of young fel
lows the State has had here in
years and all they need is to be
given an opportunity to get accus
tomed to their places before they
are taken away. The really valu
able man in Congress is not the man
who makes a speech at a minute's
notice and spouts a lot of words. It
is the man who can do the most
work for his constituents on the
quiet or any other way, wlho is la
miliar with Washington and the
ways of government departments,
and vhio knows just where to go
for a thing. Many a man comes
here from a district who doesn't
stay here long enough to know
where to go for the most insignifi
In this respect Wyatt Aiken is of
great value to his district. He was
here with his father years ago and
knows Washington pretty well.
What lie didn't learn then he will
soon pick up.
South Carolina ought to learn
what the New England States have
long ago discovered-that is, send
a good man to Congress aid let
him stay here. The longer he stays
the more valhAble he will bcco'ne.
He makes afliliations and (eals with
