THE SEA COAST ECHO.
CIIAd. G. MOREAU, Editor. MAY ST. LOUIS, MISS., irKIL, 30 1892 ■ Dcchamps has hypnotize Louisiana justice. The sudden disappearance of Judge Marr, of New Orleans, is still shrouded in mystery. Murder is so common in New Or leans nowadays that the word acci dent is substituted for murder. The first of May is “moving day” in this country, and some of the crowned heads of Europe are dread ing the coining of the day for fear I hat they may be moved forcibly to another world. The St. Louis Republican says: Mississippi has removed all the screens from its saloons. A queer idea this, that the way to check ob jectionable habits is to encourage them to become open and notorious. The Sea Shore Camp Ground As sociation has re-elected Major W. J. Hearin, q f Mobile, president, and re elected the same trustees. The next meeting will begin Friday night, July Bth, and close Sunday night, July 17th. The United Confederate veterans unanimously adopted a resolution re questing the Legislature of each State to vote Mrs. Jeff Davis an an nual pension of SSOO during the re-' maining years of her life. This is yet to be. It is now generally supposed that Phil Baker, who was hanged last Friday, in New Orleans, add accused the murder of Mrs. Neil Nelson, he was innocent of the crime. What an outrage is this, if true. In our opinion, Baker was innocent of the crime. An exchange sa} f s that Jerry Simp son, the “socklcss statesman” of Kansas, it is rumored, will petition Congress for a $2,000,000 appropri ation for the purpose of experiment ing in crossing honey bees with light ning bugs, under the impression that should he succeed the bees will be able to work at night. Dechamps, the murderer who was to hang last Friday is still living, and there is reason to believe that he will be pardoned. The course of the law in this case seems very strange. Can it possibly be bribery.or by the supernatural powers of this daring murderer that the course of the law has been conjured? 1 Bro. Mayers hits the nail squares on the head in the following para grah.: A newspaper cannot pander to albclasses of people. It is there fore, bound to make some enemies and if does not, it will have failed to accomplished any good. When ever a paper succeeds in making enemies you may just put it down that that journal is effecting some good. Shipments of fruits and vegetables from Crystal Springs, April 22, amounted to three cars. Consisting of peas and berries. This is a be ginning and shipment will increase from now on. Prospects for peas, beans and berries arc excellent, and weather very favorable. About half the tomato plants are in very fine condition, while balance not so good as usual. The Night Jlawle is the name of a little paper published at Oxford, Ala. The editor announces his political faith in these terms: “We arc the best bow-legged, box-angled, pigeon toed, spindle-shanked, whopper-jaw ed, cross-eyed, freckle-faced, red headed, crook-nosed, flop-eared, to bacco-chawing cuss of a Democrat in this whole country, We are for Cleveland, Jones, Lon Grant, Alf Truitt and Ed Caldwell, and we don’t care a dnrn who knows it.” The Echo has always and will con tinue to advocate the name of Grover Cleveland for the United States Pres idency, and thinks his nomination at the Chicago convention very proba ble, judging from present indica tions. We have been asked if Mr. Cleveland is defeated what would we do in that case. In reply we say whoever the Democracy nominates at the National convention we shall heartily and vigorously support. The will of the Democracy must be tarried out. A NECESSITY. “I’m not able to take a newspa per. I am going to cut down ex penses this year.” This is what a good many people are saying, and they really think they are too poor to take their county paper and judge it economical not to do so. We aie not wholly governed by a desire to get subcribers when we say that no poor man, who is able to work, is too poor o take his home paper. To the contrary, every man who loves himself, his family and his country, is too poor to do without his home paper. The newspaper is an impor tant factor in the country’s progress, prosperity and happiness. It is a necessity. The paper does the work for your homes, churches, schools society, industry and country, that you cannot have done througn any other medium. You are not asked to pay what the paper is worth to you—if you were you would open your eyes sure enough, unless you have carefully considered the great value of good, live, courageous pa per. It is the cheapest of all the necessaries of life. You pay ten dollars for many things that does not do you half as much good as your home paper, and for it yeu only pay the sum of SI.OO. OULF COAeST COUNTR Y. A writer in the Farm and Fireside writing of the Gulf Coast country says: “The country along the Mis sissippi sound, which extends from Pearl river (the dividing line between Louisiana and Mississippi), has be come qnite a resort for northern peo ple who desire to escape the rigors of long winters at home. Especially is this true of invalids. Asa health re sort, “the coast,” as it is called can be highly recommended. In my own case—catarrhal and bronchial diffi culties—much relief has resulted from a resdence here of several weeks. A sanitary map has been issued by the U. S. Marine Hospital Service at Washington, laid off in latitudinal zones, showing the di seases prevalent in each. Every zone in the entire country has its special diseases except one. The only one free from any local diseases is this portion of Mississippi on the north shore of the Gulf of Mexico. The wind is either from the piney woods or from the Gulf, and there fore free from dust. These winds are nature’s health-giving elixir. From the sea they are charged with saline and tonic properties and from the woods with a ressnous breath, which is a balm to many invalids and pleasent to all others. DOWNWARD. Our exchanges, as well as the peo ple, will never stop criticizing the Legislature of ’92, The following is from the Kosedale Democrat. Mississippi, iu the opinion of her legislators, needs no new immigra tion, no new industries, no influx of outside capital. Her people are con tented to jog along in the old groove and to turn a deaf ear to all that is progressive and enlightened beyond her borders. Foreign nations and sister State may vie with each other in displaying before the whole world the Columbian Exposition in Chicago glowing evidences of the record re sources, developed and undeveloped of the productive capacity and of the opportunities for investments of and in their domains, but here in Missis sippi, there is as evidenced by the action of our law-maker and sponsors on such spirit of pride or emulation. We are satisfied with our measure of prosperity. Let us build a high wall round three of our boundaries; then with the turbulent Mississippi on the fourth side we can bid defiance to the rest of mankind and continue on the down grade to ignominy and perdition without let or hindrance. The Marshalion, 0., Statesman says: A bill has been passed by the Senate appropriating 8100,000 to en tertain the G. A. R, encampment in Washington. There is no more au thority for this than there would be to appropriate money to entertain any individual who might choose to visit Washington. But then, under the name of “soldiers,” everything goes. Wonder the bill does not pro vide that any veteran who visits Washington, shall have the right to go into the treasury and help him self. The law comes close to that BOW. EDITORIAL AND GENERAL. The Congressional campaign will soon be here. Flour is now being manufactured out of bananas. A lady of Itawamba county docs her own farming. The late Legislature was in session seventy-four days. Pearl river is rising, the water being even with the banks. The State prohibition convention meets in Jackson, May 11th, F. Frye, proprietor of the Ocean Springs Hotel, died last week. A night clerk has been appointed for the Jackson postofflee. The State Alliance of Georgia has ex communicated the Third party. Jackson county has 1112 legal voters who have not paid their poll tax. The Jackson baseball club has Issued a challenge for any club in the State. The grand jury of Sunflower county in dicted negroes for fishing on Sunday. Hill has declared for free silver. Any thing to help secure that nomination. The State Grand Lodge of the Knight of Pythias will meet at Biloxi May 12th. i A mad dog bit a Kemper county negro recently. The dog died a day alter the oc currence. The House, of Representatives of New York has passed a bill conferring suffrage on worn an, Dr. J. J. Harrison, of Conehatta. Miss, has been appointed quarantine officer at Ship Island. A man must take two books when he goes to church—a prayer book and his pocket book. An exchange says how does the prima ry election law'stnke you for a Missis sippi force bill? “A Groverian cinch” is the way a New York paper denominates Cleveland’s grip on the nomination. The new Code forbids railroad and ex press companies to transport liquors from a wet to a dry county. The Louisiana country papers, who where in fayor of Foster, came out as poultry papers last week. The Jackson fire department and Board of Aldermen have adopted the Gamcwell electric lire alarm system. Senator Quay is “hedging” on -his po litical future by opposing the opening of the World’s Fair on Sunday. The citizens of the famine-stricken district of Texas have appealed to the charitable of that sta*e for contributions. Some people think it utterly useless to subscribe to their home paper and still they borrow it from their neighbor regu larly. To defray the expenses of the State government for the next two years, the Legislatuie appropriated the sum of $2,- 00,000. When one closely examines the lives led by our wealthy men it seems a waste of time to struggle foi the accumulation of ilches. A Hinds county man planted a small arden spot (l-26th of an acre) in rad ishes which were shipped to Western markets, and he realized a net profit thereon $38.17. The Hattiesburg Conner and the Hat tiesburg Democrat have consolidated, the former purchasing the latter. Wo wish the Democrat success. Some papers are inclined to ridicule Mr. Cleveland because he is duck-hunting. But of late Grover is getting more ducks than Davy is delegates. The Legislature abolished the charter of all towns having less than 500 Inhabi tants. Towns of less ICO cease to be municipal corporations. The Westviile News will bet seventeen yards of buttermilk that Grover Cleve land gets the nomination for President at the Chicago convention. The coffee crop of Brazil is said to be the largest made for many years; so large that the railroads are not able to take it to the sea coast for foreign shipment, a fast as it accumulates. The Meridian Dally Tribune is nothing if not enterprising. It 'has just pur. chased a fast printing and folding press and has enlarged from a four to an eight page paper, The Tribune has no peer in Mississippi- Tuesday, Scranton Lodge No 45,1. O. O. F., celebrated the anniversary of odd fellowship by a grand street parade. There were over flye hundred men in line. The grand marshal was Major E. W. Morrii, ofBiloxi; aides, J, W. Alman and W. M. Canty, of Scranton, An old retfttrtfrant bill printed in Rich mond in January, 1864, gives the follow ing war-time prices in Confederate money: Soup $1.50; chicken $3.50; roast beef $3; ham and eggs, $8; raw oysterp, $2; coffee $3; bread and butler $1.50; a bottle of champagne, S6O; a drink of rye whiskey, $2; a bottle of ale, sl2, and a cigar, $2. Some of tbc Hill papers are like old Trailer; they find no game, but continue to bark at the hole in the ground. They know something went there and they think it will come out again. It is a weakness for which old Trailer was killed, but there is no law in this country against newspaper imbecility, and let these Hill sheets continue to bark in the hole—Meridian Tribune. OUR SPORTING GOSSIP. BY WILL-O’THK-WISP. My prediction as to the better man in the Siddons and Vanheest contest was verified on Wednesday night last. In spite of Siddons’ superiority in height and reach and his great science, Vanheest put him out in seven rounds. The stocky built, game little fellow hits an awful blow and is one of the never say die com position, and as game as any one in the feather weight class, llis manager, Thos. Manning, an cx-middle weight champion and a firm believer in his little tighter, some weeks ago wrote to Capt. Cook, of the Police News, inquiring if a match could be arranged between Vanheest and Johnny Griffin. When the young fellow was at Bay St. Louis in February, he told me he would not meet Griffin on account of his being so much larger than himself. It appears, however, that he has changed his mind. Since he has defeated Siddons, a little difference in height and reach will not matter, and the chances are now that a meeting can easily be brought about. If a match is made it, would make a good contest between the Sulli van and Corbett, the Meyer and McAtf lifle and the Hall and Fitzsimmons.|Par son Davies says he will not permit Hall to box in the month of September, and the probability is that Hall and Fitz will meet between the Ist of November and some time in December. In case Griffin and Vanheest arrange a meeting, Van heest will give the Boston boy all he wants but it is not at all likely that he will be able to defeat him. Johny Griffin is one of the coolest and gamest boxers in the ring, a perfect master of the science, with a handy left and a (powerful right. The lovers'.ofboxing will have a scientific treat in the month of September and will surely get the worth of their money in seeing the heavy and light weight giants of America. Jack MeAuiiffe does not fancy training but is said when hard up to be willing to risk it, and when he gets in the arena he does his work in a manner that leaves no doubt as to his ability as a great boxer. He is looked for at Bay St. Louis at an early day to spy out the land and decide if tnis place will suit him in his prepara tion to meet the hard little fighter, Billie Meyer. Ten thousand dollars is a good pile to work for, and the average man would be willing to do a heap of sweat ing and working to even hope to gain it. I think Jack will boa good one to in vest on, but he must be in the best of form, strong and well to defeat Billy Meyer. Parson Daveis, Joe Choyinski and Jim Hall sail for England on the 4th of May, to be absent for two or three months. They will be present at the Jackson and Slavin contest, and perhaps be in his cor der when he undertakes to defeat the big strong Slavin. Joe Choyinski writes to the Bay that he has done a good business in New York and so far the papers give him great praise. When he returns from England be will "again be after Corbett’s scalp, and I would not be surprised some day to hear that he had lifted it. Hall is afraid of our Septhmber sun, while our Fitzsimmons is made to say, “Good Lord, make us truly thankful for what we are about to receive,” and fight whenever he is .called upon. So far no one has given him credit for showing his willingness to meet a big man at catch weights and for training for aud boxing two big fellows In one year which he will, if Hall cousents, finally to meet him, Fitz simmons deserves success, and he might yet surpisc some of the knowing ones who say Hall has the dead wood on him. There is a man in Tennessee who' is willing to bet several hundred acres of his best land that Sullivan will do up Cor bett. If John L. trains as an athlete should, the Tennessee man would be safe iu betting the whole State, if he owned it. The many friends of Mr, Chas. Noel, the able and wise President of the Olym pic club, of New Orleans, will be pleased to learn of his elevation to another Im portant office. He has been chosen by th voters of the 9th ward, New Orleans, to represent them in (he city council. Mr. Noel is only 26 years of a steady and highly moral young gentleman. He has not only managed the affairs of the club in a very satisfactory manner, but has most successfully been at the head of a large estate left by his father. Mr, Noel has been faithful to every trust reposed in him, whether public or private, and for such young men there is always room at the top of the ladder. President Angell, of Michigan University, in his late address of wel come to cx-President Cleveland made use of words, which coming from a Republican, form one of the most honorable tributes ever made to a political opponent. He said that he presented to the audience “one whom all of as regardless of party convictions or belief, delight to hon or aud respect for his incorruptable integrity, high administrative ability, lofty ideas of civic virtue, and the splendid and invincible courage with which he adheres to what he believes o be right. The following “good one” is told to illustrate the verdant greeness of some men who have aspired and se cured seats in the Legislature. Two rural members, (names not given, but in possession of many who will attest the truth of this incident,) the first day the Legislature convened, went into the Library, removed their hats, and sat patiently all day ; which proceeding attracted the attention of Miss Tucker, the Librarian. Next day, punctually, they came again and took their same seats. Where upon Miss Tucker asked them want ed. The spokesman for this couple replied, “We are members of the Legislature, but it don’t look like the durn tiling is ever going to meet.’ She told them that the Legislature had been in session upstairs two days. But they insisted that they were members of the “lower house” and would not move an inch.—North Miss. Democrat. THE CRESCENT HOTEL, BAY ST. LOUIS, MISS- Open Summer and Winter.
