The Third Congressional District
is made up of the above Counties,
and has been represented for five suc
cessive terms: 1876, 1878, 1880. 1882
and 1884 to 1880, by Hon. 1). Wyatt
Aiken of Abbeville. lie will not be
a candidate for re-election, and we
had hoped that Abbevilie would foll6w
the example of Spartanburg, when
the successor to fill the vacancy, occa
sioned by the death of Hon. John II.
Evins was to be nominated. Know
ing that Spartanburg had enjoyed the
honor of the office for four successive
terms. she left the naming of his suc
cessor to the other counties, and
Hon. W. II. Perry was elected. But
Abbeville it seems is not satisfied,
and although she has feasted upon
the choicest of the loaves and fishes,
she wants more. Let us see what
Abbeville has had since the Demo
crats came into power:
1st. The Congressman ten years,
D. Wyatt Aiken. 1876, 1878, 1880,
1882 and 18S4.
2nd. The Solicitor. Eighth Circuit,
lion. J. S. Cothran, 1876, 1880. Re
signed in 1881 to accept the position
of Judge of the Eighth Circuit.
3rd. Judge of the Eighth Circuit.
Thos. Thomson, 1878; J. S. Cothran
appointed 1881, re-elected 1881, 1885.
4th. Associate Justice Supreme
Court. Samuel McGowan. 1879, 1882.
Compare this with what the other
counties have received and mark the
The Solicitor of the 8th Circuit,
Col. James L. Orr, was given to An
derson in 187i, but he has since re
mnoved to Greenville, and should be
consideredl as a portion of Green
ville's share, and not Anderson's,
therefore. Anderson is left without.
Newberry has h-ad the Superin.tendent
of the Penitentiary, and after waiting
until 1882. broke the slate and se
cured the nomination of Capt. Jas.
N. Lipscomnb as Secretary of. State.
Oconee has had none of the offices of
the State, and Pickens nothing until
3Iaj. Bradley was appointed collector
of Internal Revenue; yet. Abbeville
asks these counties to stand aside
again, and give her the Congressman.
Col. Benet, Senator Mlaxwell and
31r. Jas. II. Rice were. mentioned be
fore the withdrawail of Col. Aiken,
and niot content with these, they pre
vailed upon .Judge Cothran, who was
in December last re-elected .Judge of
the 8th Circuit for a full termi of four
years. to allow his name to be used
in this connection. It would seem
that they are determined that the
other counties shall have no voice in
the matter except to meet and ap
prove of th~e selection made by them
from their own county. We do not;
think that Anderson, Oconee and
Pickens are prepared to admit that
they have no claim upon this office.
No man who is capable of represent
ing( themi is willing to concede all
the honors to Abbeville. We are
sure that Newberry will not make
any such concession. We have
plenty of Congressional timber, as
good as ever grew upon the soil of
any county, and we -are p)reparedl to
say that if Anderson. Oconee and
Pickens will unite with us, that the
honor shall igo for one time at least
to a citizen living beyond the bor
ders of' A bbeville County. We have
not augzht to say against the gentle
men who are candiidates from Abb)e
ville; they' nre all men of merit, but
on that score we do not y'ield to any-;
and while we have pointed out the
advantages Abbeville has hitherto
enjoyed over the other counties, at
the same t.ime we dlo not admit that
her favored ones are more mneritori
ous, but have only been more fortu
nate in securing the prizes, and it is
posslible that A bheville is being in
iluenced by others. We lind the fol
lowing in the Greenlville News:
"If the well authenticated story
that Judge Cothran wishes or is will
ing to go to Congress be true, the
contest inthat district is settled.
The other gentlemen who c'herished
amb)ition in that (direction may as
well hang up their little fiddles~and
bows gracefully and quickly or utilize
them to mak(e the Cothran proces
sion musical and harmonious. The
.Judge can beat any man in the dis
trict for anything in thei gift of the
If there sh;uld be a vacancy in the
JIudgteship o1 this circuit how would
.J. L. Orr do to fill it'?
This looks as if Greenville has

rau mnoe and look~s also, as if it was
i aw\er's mnove in the interest of
lawyers. lect Jludze Cothran to
other lawyer, solicitor, and you will
find Greenville (not in the Congres
sional District) happy, and the law.
yers-elect happy. But what have the
farmers to say about this? If the
Greenville News' estimate of Judge
Cothran's strength is correct, the law.
yers will certainly unite on Judge
Cothran, to get the Congressmen,
Judge and Solicitor. Now we would
,uggest that the farmers unite on
Capt. Lipscomb and accept the Ab
I bevilie plian or nominating-the pri
mary, and we will see whether thc
farmers have to hang up their little
fiddles or not.
By act of 1885 the superintendent
and Board of Directors of the Peni
tentia.iy are authorized to make con
tracts for the performance of specific
work. They are also empowered by
act of 1884 and laws of force pre
vious to its pussage, to hire out cou
victs, as there seems to be a surpltis
of convicts. we would suggest that
the railroads consider the advan
tage to be gained by contracting for
a sufficient force of convicts to sup
plement the labor already in their
employ to put their roads in order.
The labor can be had we are told at
a reasonable price and they will thus
save money and besides not interfere
with the farm hands at this the most
important season of the year to farm
ers. They are accessible to the
Columbia and Greenville Railroad
and might be utilized with profit as
the greatest damage to their road is
between Alston and Columbia.
President Mitchell speaks of using
the bridge of the Richmond and Dan
yille at Augusta to bring the narrow
gauge across the Savannah. If this
combination is made what about com
peting with the Columbia and Green
ville Railroad Division of the Rich
mond Danville on this side. It would
be hard to fight the bridge that car
ried us over safe.

CoLUMBIA, S. C., May 24th, 18.
Oh the floods, the terrible floods ! Co
lumbia has not suffered such a loss since
the flood of 1865, as has been caused by
the rains and the swollen Congaree dti
ring the past week. Wednesd::y the
river began to rise, and continued to grow
larger and larger. Thursday it had risen
so as to overtlow the banks and sweep
over the young crops, destroyinig every
thing in its track. The man ager ofI the
canal, fearin g the etTct of the waters,
endeavored to strengthen the upper laim
to prevent the river from breaking
through and damaging the banks and
wasteways, but with all his~ efforts the
waters burst through on Friday mor-n
ing, and cut its way, first across the
bank of the canal, about hiftvyvards be
low the mouth, wherec an opening of
about fifty feet was made. Lower down.
some three hundred and Iiity- feet above
the city water works another break wvas
made, and the current in tihe canal and
river was so swift that the b)ank wvas
gradutally washed away until it reached
the new wvater works which gave way
at 2 o'clock of that day. The reservoir
between the new and old water works
fell in on the upper sid':, which it is
thought prevented ti.e destruction of the
old water works. Large trees fell be
fore the surging waters as if they were
mere pipe stews. The canal broke again
at the waseway and cut an opening of
nearly fifty feet. And still lower down,
near Jervais street, another break of
about the sanme size. The' damage to the
city water works is estimated at six
thousand dollars. The dam nage to camn:ml
is variously estimated at from live to
one hundred thousand dollars. I think
am low estimate of the damages. in ease
the banks are rebuilt, is lifty thouwsandI
dollars. If the work is suspended for
lack of alppropmilations, the loss will
amount to wvhatever the cost has been
for it, which, in labor- and money, is not
less than threce hundred thous:and dol
lars, for what has heen donme within the
last four years. Col. T1. J. Lipscomb
estimates the loss to the penitentiary, on
the fai ms in which they arec interested.
at ten thousand dollars. The loss to cornt,
o)ats and cotton on the farms of Messrs. .T.
C. Seegers, L. D. Childs, T.- B. Auhty
J. M. Graham, W. D. Starling and others
is very great. The small grain is a
comnplete loss; the cotton and corn will
have to be planted over. They~ also lost
heavily by thlie drowning of their stock
anid cattle; Mr. Starling alone losing
about twenty-five humdred dollars'
worth. The river ont Friday morning
was in four feet of the Congaree bridge,
but no ser-ions damage has been discov
em-ed to this valuable property. The
bridge of the C., G. attd A. Rt. Rt., over
the- Congaree, was slighitly damaged on
Friday, which cautsed a delay of the
tr-ains until Sunday mnorningr. The
Broad River bridge stood the storm with
slight damage. Ott Suiday mortin g it
was found that the rock pier on the Co
luimbia side had been undermined, anid
thait the stone had fallen in otn the uipper
side for about six feet fromn the- ground
to the centre of the pier. The toll keep
