THE SEA COAST ECHO.
W. L. MAY. CIIAS. G. MOREAU. MAY & MOREAU, Proprietors." CHAS. G. MOREAU, Editor A Publisher. BAY ST. LOUIS, MISS., FKB. 18, 1893. To Advertisers! ElTTiie Ska Coast Kcho lias a larger insulation in Bay St. Lunia than any pa per published. EDITORIAL. Next Wednesday is George Wash ington’s birthday. The assessment rolls for ’92 shows 515,483 cducable children in this Blale. Mr. John Poitevent aud Miss Ella Binnolt, were King and Queen of the New Orleans Carnival this year. The reform of the pension roil is one of the good things that is expect ed of the Demociatic administration. The old reliable L. &N. R. R. evidently did a big business over this division during the past week. To the Minnesota Legislature:— Better leave hoopskirts alone; they have gotten many men into serious trouble. Bro. Hobbs expects to return his Leader to Biookhaven, Miss. His paper failed as a leader of the Third party in Jackson. Let a good, keen edge be put upon the Democratic decapitation ax, so that a second blow will not be re quired in any case. If great scandals travel in cycles, as some believe, it will soon be America’s turn, as nearly every big European country now has a big one on hand. ——————— The colored citizens of New York have started a movement in opposi tion to lynch law and they intend to form branches in all large cities for the purpose hf grousing public senti ment. A Georgia editor, in a brief salut ory, puts the town on nolice as fol lows: All we want out of this town is a living and a funeral. We are in position to furnish our own obituary, and are independent on that line. The school board of Chattanooga, Tenn., has decided that no married woman need apply for a position as teacher. These school commission ers have no sympathy with the mod ern custom of wiyes supporting their husbands. The Echo thinks Mr. Harrison and his Cabinet would leave the annexa tion of Hawaii to Mr. Cleveland and the Democratic Congress. It is too important a qdHßar to be disposed of during the me remaining at the disposal the present adminis tration. The Goyeruor of Arkansas, has ad dressed an open letter to the Govern ors of the several Southern States, suggesting a convention of Govern ors to be held in Richmond, Va., on or about April 12th, for the purpose of considering ways and means to at tract capital and reliable immigration to the South. Attorney General. Johnston has given Auditor Stone an opinion, hold ing that property exempt from taxa tion under law, cannot be sold by the sheriff to satisfy delinquent poll tax. This opinion is based upon the Con stitution of 1890, which declares that the poll tax shall be a lien “only up on taxable property.’’ If “Justice,” who sent to this of fice a communication on the county printing, will send his real name, we will gladly give place to the lengthy and well-founded argument. The letter was dated at Pearlington and post-marked at English Lookout. |As a guarantee of good faith the real name of the writer must accompany all communications. A Ni\v Orleans paper says; The small buy has proved such a nuisance to the tk trie cars that Secretary Crouch, ai luc direction of the Board of Directors, has offered the police, on approud of Superintendent Cas ter, to pay £2 for every arrest made of “catch bebinds.” Superintendent Caster has issued an order to all pre cinct commanders to make arrests of boys In accordance with Ordinance NOl 3508. OUR STATE AT THE FAIR. There is not the least doubt now that the State of Mississippi will be represented at the World s Fair in Chicago, If not through the ef forts of her sons, through those of her fair and patriotic daughters. The women of Mississippi readily grasped the situation when, in 1892, the State Legislators refused to make an appropriation for representation at the Fair, and with woman’s pure determination organized the Colum bian club. Mrs. George McKee, widow of the late Senator, is presi dent of the club, and is an enthusi astic worker. The ladies are receiv ing a generous support in their laud able undertaking and have a few thousand dollars on hand. Late in telligence from Jackson says the club decided to build a fortification of cotton bales on the Fair grounds representing Vicksburg during the siege. One hundred bales of cotton will be used in building the fort and on the inside will be exhibited all the products of the great staple. The woman will ornament their cotton fort with numbers of historic can non flags, aud other relics of the war. THE PLACE TO LIVE. A land that is fanned continually by Ibe salt-freighted zephyrs of the wide and far-spreading Mexic gulf from one direction, and the sweet and hcalth-giying aroma of the pice for est from another direction certainly tends to make one of the most health ful spots the Mighty has created. Such a blessed land is Bay St. Louis and the asme may be claimed for nearly the entire Mississippi Gulf coast, from wealthy Waveland to to the hills of lovely Ocean Springs. Too much cannot be expressed by tongue or pen to describe the coast of Mississippi as the most favored spot where the human agencies of health-restoring properties have been firmly established. In brief, it may be well to say, this wave-kissed land of sunshine and flowers is the grand est and greatest of sanitariums. Sealed proposals for dredging through the bar at the mouth of Pearl river are advertised. Mrs. R. D. Massie has been ap pointed correspondent of the New Orleans Picayune at Pass Christian. A free grant of 100 acres of J land to every father with twelve children was lately offered by the Canadian government, and 140 applications were received within three weeks. That Mr. Cleveland’s Cabinet will be perfect is not to be expected—he human, like the rest of us--but there is no doubt that it will be se lected, and, as a whole, servicable to the party and the country. Every young man, after lie has chosen his vocation, should stick to it. Don’t leave it because hard blows are to be struck or disagreeable work performed. Those who have worked their way up to usefulness and wealth do not belong to the shiftless and unstable, but may be reckoned among such as took off their coats, rolled up their sleeves, conquered their prejudice against labor, and manfully bore the heat and burden of the day.—Ex. The Hawaiians, who were once said to have numbered 500,000, do not now exceed 35,000 or 40,000. They complain that the Christians brought them small pox, scarlet fever, con sumption, and diptheria, and the Chinese leprosy , and that thus their numbers have been depicted, Sugar and rice are raised abundantly in their country, but most of the work of cultivatioa is done by Chinese and Japanese, who number about 27,000. There are said to be about 1,900 Americans on the islands. Under the tittle of “A Season of ■Plenty” the following good news comes through a dispatch from Jack son. Seth White, a large planter from Tunica county, fold a Southern Press News reporter that his county had more corn and meat than at any time since the war. Most every one has enough corn to do them, and a great many have their supply of meat. Dr. McLauriu brings the same news from Smith county. They both say that the farmers in the fu ture will try and raise “hog and ho miny” for home consumption and make cotton a surplus crop. The Buglurj at Pleri’s Drustore. Editor Echo, Dear Sir;— The robbery of my s’o/e being an offense committed against the public and one t ie efoie of general interest, I write to give a correct account of the affair to appease the minds of “those few” who have “thought” little enough to judge me cruel in my action of the case. As our city’s means are inadequate to furnish a sufficient police force for the absojutc protection of its citizens', the duly of ferreting the criminal de volved upon my son and myself and we therefore made it our duty to ob serve every tiling and everybody closely. It was a sr.cred duty we owed to every man and woman in this community to find the guilty party, that even the faintest suspi cion might not hover over the inno cent ones. Was it chance, luck or coincidence or was it the power of that “Strongest Will”* that guided our footsteps, in a straight line to the criminal, in justice to those who were entitled to it? Like all other evil doers he had lit tle fear of detection and exposed one of the stolen articles, a hair brush, on his dressing table and on the night of his wedding, my son, being one of the invited guests, could not help noticing the peculiar smell from the 'fumes of a cigar the groom was smokiug and its aroma and its shape showed that it was a Corono Victoria, one of the brands that we missed. Then commenced a closer inspec'ion of the surroundings, and the brush, alluded to above, showing that it had been littlejised induced my son to a closer examination and on the back he recognized my private cost mark, and reported bis discovery to me. Mr. Maynard, our town marshal, was called in that night and arrangements were made for a search warrant and, with that paper, the next morning the arrest was made and the young man acknowledged his crime, pvoduc sorae of the stolen goods and prom ised to refoim and asked for mere}’ at my hands. His foster father’s grief was such, that being a father myself, I could imagine his feelings and under the impulse of the moment promised him that I would not make my prosecution a bitter one. The first affidavit was made by my son Warren ,and read for lavccncy only. On the evening of the arrest of the prisoner I was notified by the Marsh al that 1 was wanted at the court house, at once for the purpose of making a second charge—that of buglary, and going there I was told to do so, to which I asked if it- were compulsory or optional on my part, then I was answered that I could do as I pleased. Then I refused to make the second cha ge and said to all present that my reason was that .1 had given my promise to that effect to Mr. Thorn and the matter then rested in the hands of the State. The Marshal then said he would have to assume the responsibility, as he was in duty bound to do, and en tered the second charge of I know to well my position towards this community, to release a man, (if it were in my power), who might re peat his offence, to say the least, if we are to judge his future by his past. It is a great deal that he has my forgiveness, as a Christian for the wrong he did to me personally, but as a citizen in the discharge of his duties, I cannot and will not make the least effort to liberate him. To those whose hearts are bleeding and whose eyes are swollen by the sorrow he brought upon them, I offer my sincere sympathies, but for those who may censure my course in this matter, my contempt is unbounded. Respectfully, A, G. Pieiu. The members of the Scranton Ar tillery are drilling regularly, prepa ratory to their appearance at the Chi cago Fair during the coming sum mer. Washington, D. C., Feb. 11—The Hawaiian Commissioners have just been notified that the United States will annex Hawaii, and the President will notify Congress in a special met sage. There is great rejoicing. The first installment of Spring poetry reached this office yesterday. It was too volumnious for consign ment to the waste basket so we des tined it for stove wood but alas! it was too green to burn. Hoopskirt Legislation. The desperate determination of the free men of America in this crin. olene matter is expressed in a hill in troduced into the Minnesota Legis lature making it a misdemeanor for “any person to manufacture or sell, or to offer for sale or use of any hoop skirt or hoopskirts, or anything there unto within the limits of Minnesota.” The penalty attached is a line of not less than $25 for each offense, and in default imprisonment in the county jail for a period not exceeding thirty days. The author of the bill said ‘if hoopskitts comes into use the male population will have to desert the sidewelks and lake to the middle of the road. Is not this sort of legislation ab surd? Let the ladies appropriate to their wear what they may. Scene in a Store That Advertises. Clerk. —“ Walk in, sir. What can I do fqr you?” Customer. —“l saw your adver tisement in The Sea Coast Echo that you ]iad some of the famous F. B. & S. shoes for sale and I called in to get a pair.” Clerk. —l’m sorry to inform you, sir, but we have just sold the last pair. You should call earlier for ad vertised goods.” MORAL. How much better it is to adver tise and thereby dispose of all those old shelfworn goods. Public sentiment is with us and has come to stay in the county print ing matter. Norvin Green, president of the Western Union telegraph company, died at Louisville Sunday morning. The reports of “white caps” oper ating in certain parts of this Stall have been exaggerated to no little extent. Out of eighty-eight United States Senators there are sixty-four lawyers, one preadier, one doctor and om journalist. Citizens of Carthage have organ ized a company for the purpose ol putting in a boat in Pearl river be tween that place and Jajksou.

It has been truly said that half Jthe world does not know bow the other half lives. Comparatively few otys have per fect health, owing to the impure condi tion of our blood. Hut wo rub along from day to day, with scarcely a thought, un less forced to our a teution, of the thorn* uuds all about us who are ■uillcrinjs from scrofula, salt rheum and other serious blood disorders, and whose agonies can only be imagined. The marked success of Hood’s Sarsaparilla for these troubles, as shown in our advertising columns fre quently, certainly seems to justify urging the use of this excellent modi cine by all who know that their blood is disordered. Every claim in behalf of Hood’s Sarsapa rilla is fully backed up by what the medi cine has done and is still doing, and when the proprietors urge its merits and its use upon all who suffer from impure blood, in great or small degrees, they certainly mean to include you. —— Ttt Tn ___ TIMES-DEMOCRAT i 60 Camp Street, new OB,r..mAisrs, t.a., 'DAILY: SUNDAY: WSEXX.it: 8 Pages, 16 to 20 Pages 12 Pages, 112 Per Year. $2 Per Year. $1 Per Tear.
