THIS is the last issue of The Echo before the primary elcation, mi I re desire to urge the voters of Hancock county to go to the polls next Wednesday ami give its countymau, Honorable K. J. B overs, an unanimous vote. This comity now has a chance to have one of its own citizen represent this district in Congress. Hancock county can not only give him loyal support, but can with ( mil deuce offer him to the whole district. Ho east his lot with the people of this county before ho was twenty-one years old. He was Sstranger, without money, influence or friends, and with no capital save his own brains and a determination to succeed. During the in tervening seventeen years he has achieved success. He stands at the front of Ws profession. lie has made a success of Ids own business affai-s and accumulated a competency. Helms given without stint Ids means and ability to his party, having twine canvassed the State, id flis own oxpelise n* n Presidential elector in the interest of the MtMtitU ticket. H" represented Hancock, Harrison and Jackson counties in the State Senate in the years IBDIJ-1900, and lias just Completed a term in the State Legislature. During his term in the Senate ho served as chairman on several of the most important committees, and was a lender in the fight for the amendment to the constitution, which permits each county to retain its poll tax for their school fund. His marked a great improvement in the public school system of the I’iney woods district. It was his efforts that saved the appropriation, which resulted in the establishment of the Agricultural station at McNeil, near the northern boundary of Hancock county, and which is destined to be of great benefit to the Agricultural interest of this section, now in its infancy. Indeed, be is and has been a success, and tlr.it is a criterion that in Congress he could and would accomplish something. lie is no dreamer, spends no time in evolving fine-spun theories, but knowing "hat he wants to do goes about it with all his might. He is intensely practical and the very sort of man this district wants at this time, when internal improvements is the greatest need of this district. BOWERS THE MAN.

BOWERS. The primary election, to select ft Congressman will bo held in this district on next Wednesday, Aug. ‘ >’). Hancock’s candidate, Hon. (S, J. Bowers, has made a dignified and effective canvass, and his chances of securing the nomina tion moot the highest. The newspapers of a section are 1 good barometers of public senti ment, and Iwonty-ono of the thir ty-tlueo published in the district have and are zealously advocating his election. The people without regard to class, creed or section have enthusiastically rallied to his support. They have done this be cause of his poculiarqualitications for the position. Young brainy and aggressive, ho is a man of ac tion and accomplishes results, The man who can get the most money out of the Treasury of the United States to improve the har bors and rivers of this district will make the best Congressman. The aggressive personality, the persistency and ability of Mr. Bowers point to him as the per son to be entrusted with this great work. Mr. Bowers has much exper ience in public life, and has al ways performed his public duties with credit and honor. His ex perience ns a public man, his un questioned ability, his liberal edm cation, Ins skill and strength in debate. Ins loyalty to truth and fact, Ids thorough honesty, ids fixed opinions on public questions will, in oiji- opinion, enable him to take the samojrositiou in Con gress that ho now holds in his pro fession. If elected there are many years of usefulness before him. That lie is deserving of the confi dence of the people, his whole life public and private, testifies. His own county people have on more than one occasion manifested their confidence in his ability, and will again give him an enthusias tic support, and a practically una nimous endorsement, Mr, Bowers is a simon-pure De mocrat, thoroughly in accord with the NationalDemocratio platform, a fluent, ready speaker, thorough ly familiar with all the living is sues of the day and it is safe to say that if elected, will prove a worthy champion of the interests of his constituency. Mr. Bowers, both by reason of his ability and readiness as a public speaker, and of his genial sunny disposition, lias created a most favorable im pression upon our people, who wiHlljko pleasure in contributing towafak the success of the bril liant young Mk-nsipidan.

Of whom this is wrtl\en is lion. E. J. Bow ers. In Congress he will be in all things true to his people and their interests. Wc believe that a second prim ary will not be necessary.

The Bowers supporters bavoi no second choice. They realizej that so far as this race is concern ed, that the interests, ■ the ad vancement of the district are to 1)0 committed to one who will head every energy for the weal of his people. Faithful in every place, true to every trust, compe tent to cope with every foe and situation, lion. E. .1. Bowers stands far in the front. Elect him and the Sixth District will ho re presented with fidelity, ability and honesty. The Biloxi Review says, as a lawyer Mr. Bowers ranks second to none in the State; as a Legisla tor he has served his people faith fully and well and in Congress he will reflect groat credit upon the State and himself, bringing to bear upon the discharge of the re sponsible duties of that high posi tion a rare and cultured intelli gence and a well trained and ripe experience. Ills friends arc le gion. As the end approaches the peo ple are realizing with an unerring certainty that the real interestst)f the district ought to be entrusted to the keeping of a man of inte grity and notable ability, lion. E. J. Bowers, is a veritable David of Democracy, the man whose life, private and public, demon strates his capacity, Ids integrity, his fitness in every way to faith fully and efficiently represent this district in Congress. What a vigorous, active, pro gressive people want and need is a man of ability, energy, integri ty and fearlessness to demand and receive—fight for if need bo—the just deserts of a brave, honest and growing constituency. The peo ple are the people of the Sixth district. The man—the Hon. E. J, Bowers. Elect him, and the district will ho represented as never before. Mr. Bowers is young, active, vi gorous, brilliant, thoroughly hon est, familiar with the needs of the District, awake to the impor tance of the work and labor that will devolve on the rprasoui-abiva> from this District, and is in every respect qualified, competent and able to do that work. Mr. Bowers has been a citizen of this District for many years. Ho has seen the great industrial development of Southeast Missis sippi begin, and its progress, so far as Congressional action can aid that progress, cannot bo trusted in safer, hands than his. None of the candidates for Con gress hut Hon. E. ,1. Boners has sai l anything in regard to improv ing tiie mouth of Jordan liver, that ti Unitary so important to the commercial interests of that '•ca tion of Hancock county. A vote for Mr. Bowers will moan a vote for Jordan rivcrjmprovcnumts. Asa Legislator, .Mr. Bowers ha .taken high rank, and has impress ed his Legislative work upon the laws of the State. Ho was chair man of tlic House judiciary com mittee—-doubtless the most im portant and tlin ablest of our Legislative eo mm it ties. There is no extravagance in as serting the probability of Hon. E. J. Bowers carrying every county in the district. Thursday’s N. O. “that Mr. Bowers will win in the first primary. ” /I. R4YNAUP... MANUFACTURER OF Saddlery and Collars.

PRESS EXPRESSIONS FOR HONORABLE E. J. BOWERS. | WHY WE SUPPORT BOWERS. From Laurel Ledger, Aug. 9. It soent* to bo in order for the 'papers of I he'district to give, the |reasons why they supporj their j respective candidate for Congress. The Ledger will enumerate a few 'reasons why it has hoisted the ' name of Hon. E..J. Bowers at its masthead. Mr. Bowers is well educated, [ambitious and progressive. He J thinks there is no time like the present and that the future has many things in store for the Sixth district. Ho has made a success of his Own affairs and is a line business ‘‘man. We want a man to represent |his district who is not a failure in any sense of the word. He is a forceful speaker. He bus opinions of his own and knows how to express them. He is a young man. The day is passed and gone when a man can go to Congress on a war record or simply because he is old in years. It is now exactly to the contrary , as it should be. Mr. Bowers combines all of the qualities that would make a good representative. Neither of his opponents can compare with him in most of these qualities. In fact Mr. Bowers is I lie logical candi date and his election is already practically assured. It is Imped that all voters in the county will turn out on election day and give Mr. Bowers a major ity that will always make him re member Jones county, with the most friendly feelings. That ho will carry Jones coun ty there is no doubt, the greater the majority the bettor Mr. Bow ers will be satisfied. BOWERS A WINNER. Laurel Chronicle, Aug. 1. If one wore called upon to ex press an entirely exptfrtc now of what the result will bo in Con gressional primary to be held in this district on August 20th, the' situation ns it looks from every standpoint would warrant the pre diction that Mr. Barber will get the third mark and that Captain Hardy, although more popular as a citizen than a candidate, will fall short of the necessary number of votes in Iho district to run him into a second primary. His age and’ health -at* two considerations which have rendered his candida cy weaker than it would probably been otherwise. In point of active, intelligent and aggressive service, no district AN ABLE AND CLEAN MAN. From Pass Christian Beacon. Wc have yet to hear of a single good reason why IS. J. Bowers should not be elected to Congress. His opponent have not presented any argument to the con trary. They admit his ability, and hia faithfulness to every cause ho has es poused. His own able defense of hia every public act, ami his anxious will ingness to stand by thorn, has won the admiration of his hearers wherever he has spoken. Never has he attempted to dodge an Issue or conceal any part of his record. Confident that whatever he has done was with honest and conscientious motives he Is willing to stand by his pub lic career under the moat searching light and invites the closest scrutiny. From the clean, open and manly course pur sued by him in (Tic past we may judge his future. In Congress Mr. Dowers would have tetter opportunities to ex ercise his abilities,and ho can be depend ed on to do so for the best interests of the people of the Sixth district. Ho is not, and would never permit himself to te made, the representative of a part of the people or any section of the district, but Would ever be found a vigorous and able worker for all the people and all their interests.

Bowers, in (he National Congress. FOR BOWERS. Laurel Lodger. Messrs. Bowers, Hardy- and Barber are very busy campaigning now-a-days. Only a short time now remains until the primaries. In the past two weeks the Ledger man has been in several ot the Southern counties of the State. From what could be learned dur ing the trip, it is almost certain that Bowers will come id the first primary. ,lu Marion county (wo thirds of the votes will be east for Bowers who will receive equally as many in Covington. These two counties have been counted on by one or the other candidates. In Jones younty, Bowers will undoubtedly come in with equally, 1 as many. There is hardly any use of any of the voters figuring on having to go to the polls more than one time, for Bowers will,in alt probability, be elected in the first primry. lie is by far the better of the three men running, and can do more for Mississippi andtheSixth District than the other. Asa consequence he should, and with out doubt will, be elected. OUR NEXT CONGRESSMAN. No doubt some of the counties in the Sixth district will cast their j votes against Capt. Hardy with a distinct regret. And doubtless 1 this distinguished gentleman would fare better at their hands were ho not opposed by the match less Bowers, whose towering in tellect and ability as a lawyer and statesman, combined with the strength of vigorous young man-1 hood, serve to make him irresista-; Die. Mr. Bowers is pre-eminently I qualified to represent Ins people in national Congress. He is broad minded and conservative, and po scsscs in a marked degree those essential qualifies to lofty ideals of statesmanship. The people know Mr. Bowers and they have confidence in his ability and integrity and high con ception of official duty. And when this said it docs not follow that the people of this district do not hold in high esteem the many sterling qualities possessed ■by those who are opposing Mr. Bow ers in his race for Congress. I bat Mr. Bowers will be nomina ted in the first primary now seems to ho a well settled fact. E. J. BJWERS OUR CHOICE. Under the above caption, Harrison county’s new paper, the Wiggins Times, j announces itself for E. J. Bowers, the next Congressman from this district. 1 The Times says; “ In the issue of The Times will be 1 found the announcement of the Hon. K. J. Bowers, candidate for Congress from the Sixth district. “We ask the voters of Harrison county to consider well the merits of the three candidates now seeking congressional honors at the hands of the voters of this district. “Mr. Bowers is young, active and a tireless worker, one of the most brilliant orators and fooeful debaters the state of Mississippi has ever produced. His ro ; cord in the state Legislature has proven him to a persistent and effective worker, while his reputation and ability na a law- . yer is not questioned. “His ambition, therefore, to represent this district in Congress cannot bo mere ly one of dollars and cents. Mr. Bowers favors appropriations for the ports of I Pascagoula, Biloxi and Gulfport, and many other improvements that will b,,vc 1 a tendency to upbuild the sixth district. \ li the voters of Harrison county give j him thei reimport they will have no cause : to regret it.
