FINLEY. Washington, D. C., Aug. 2, 1912. Mr. Editor:?I feel that the people i of your county are entitled to an explanation of my absence from the ( campaign meetings now being con-l| ducted in the several counties of thej Fifth Congressional District. Hereto-j fore the practice has been in the Fifth j District to have a campaign for Congress with usually thirty odd meetings in all. Through your paper I wiah to state that my duties in Washington during the present long and; important session oC Congress are , such as to cause me to be unable to^ Took after my personal interest in the^ campaign and at the same time give! to the people of the District my time! and services as their representative i ( at my post of duty in Washington,!( Congress still being in session. l|, have only had the opportunity to i ( make two political speeches in the;, District this year. We are just in thej closing days of this session and it is expected that Congress will adjourn, any time between now and the 15th , of August. Those who are familiar with legislation here know how im- ( portant it is that the Democrats main-! tain a quorum for the transaction of' business, and in this connection I will state that the Democratic caucus , some weeks ago ordered that no fur- ( ther leave of absence be granted to', members except on the score of sick-1 ness. It is hoped, however, that1, Pnmrrocc will nrHnnrn bv the 15th of 1 * - --.I August and as soon as I can do so, I , will come home and make such cam- ( paign as the time will permit. And a special reason for my remaining1, here Is the fact that the'Postoffice Ap-!] propriation Bill carrying more than two hundred and sixty million dollars, for the conduct of the postal service . of the country, a bill prepared and> ] reported by the Postoffice Committee,! of which I am the ranking Democrat, > passed the House on the 2nd day of i May and since that time has been j pending in the Senate and therefore1 has not been agreed to by the two) houses of Congress. When the bill ' passes the Senate it will be loaded i down with sctores of Senate amend- i ments Involving millions of dollars, It ind a great deal of new legislation; t ind when returned to the House of I Representatives the bill will be sent t o conference. The Chairman of the S joraraittee and myseir win De me iwu * democratic House ctonferees on this c )ill and for me to leave here at this t ritical stage of the bill would be e mch a neglect of public duty as to 1 >ring down upon me the censure of 1: he people of the District and my t democratic associates in Congress. I' e im 'placing public duty above /my r ereonal interest and feel sure that tl his course on my part will meet the a inproval of all of the people of the t( district. Very respectfully, S D. E.

W. P. POL. n LOCK. | e To my Fellow Citizens of Chesterfield C County:?As you already know I j f< am making the race for Congress in I v this District.

P. POLLOCK. hi THE GRACE "INTERVIEW." There are some things in the Grace [ 'Interview'" given out at Glenn C( springs one day last week, that we do ei lot care to print. That, however, ib P? lot material. The material part of w he interview?and a very important th >art too?is Mayor Grace's statement da hat the governor told him that the M, Southern railroad financed McDuffie t0 iampton's campaign for railroad :oramissi^ner and that he, ?lease, tad the handling of the funds furnishd by the railroad for this purpose, "his deserves to be investigated fuly. This is not the first intimation that he Southern took a big part in the J 'Ul lection two years ago. As to the j | ga ailroad commissioner election, we' hink the following is a fact?whether' pj| significant fact we do not undertake j 3 say: bu Some time before the election the j r, iothern, and the Coast Line also,! n petition of South Carolina cotton 1 of >ssible and as an extra When you buy a Buggy r me.

The roads 3ught gaainst these lower rates; and rhen John Ear] went out nad Harapon came in the roads renewed the >ught against these lower rates; and nd secured a repeal of the order. There is no doubt the Southern lays a large part in the politics of outh Carolina in more ways than ne. "EVERYBODY IS DOISG IT." The country is fast becoming a overnment of graft An increasingly arge number of persons are in-peliIcs for the money that is in it?not or the salary, but the graft they can ;et hold of. Hence many of them get ich quick. Mayor Grace of Charleson says Chief Cbnstable Stothart has ollected $60,000 in graft to protect lind tigers in Charleston since his ppointment. Witnesses \ testified in few York last week that the annual raft collected by police officials in ew York city amounts to $2,400,000. drafting is becoming so common that lere is a song which says, "Everyody is doing it." The country will son go to the "demnition bowwows." this sort of thing is not stopped. Lawyer Sam Nichols, who, by his \vn sWorn statement, has made $1,00 in securing pardons since Blease as been governor, and who paid Hease's campaign expenses in Sparinburg county in 1910 and intends to ay them again this year, is making peeches throughout Spartanburg and djoining counties in behalf of the overnor. But, then, why shouldn't e? , Chief Constable Stothart denies, in letter to the governor, that he has iken graft to protect blind tigers, nd threatens terrible things to anyody who will dare tell him so "to Is face." He refused to answer quesons, however, of the investigating >mmittee on this subject on the plea lat his answer might "criminate'* [m. NOTICE OF SALE.
