It will soon be time to make
nominations for Congress. Col
onel Evins of Spartanburg has de
(lined running on account of the
delicacy of his health. In the dis
trict which he repreiented since
1876, there are now four or five
candidates who desire to be his
successor. Union and Columbia
each want to be represented, and
eccordingly Cols.McKissick,Mun
ro and Yeomans have all been spo
k.en of. Col. Evins has made a very
acceptable inember to Congress,
And the change to another man
may pro-ve only an experiment for
the better. Strictly speaking we
have no absolute right. to dictate
in the matter, but we would like
to see Col. W. H. Perry of G reen
sille promoted to tiis high position
of honor, and who is so well qual
ified to fill it. Two years ago he
lacked only t little of receiving the
nomination. le in all probability
would be as good a representative
as his people could send to Con
gress, and no doubt would (o great

pleasure in bringing before the

come when we ought to have some
showing in these matters, andl we
shal advocate the nomination of
Col. Bowenm for Congress.
Abbeville has been represented
suffIciently long to concede to a
change. Without disparaging the
merit of other new candidates, we
would like to see Col. Bowen nom

It Seems that the shooting of
Boggan Cash,which resulted in his
death, was absolutely necessary
for his capture on Thursday morn

Tle posse which went in pur
suit of him, either had to retire
from the scene of danger without
capturing him, or they had to use
fire arms for their own. protectiflon I
and his in mediate vaptu re.
Now which was right., or is
there any , question albout it? Al
