I Bay'St. Louis than any I paper published. J-• editorial. ~~ E Easter Monday was a great day ■or picnics and balls throughout the plate. ■■> L Stocks are going up, Both Bulls and Bears have lic(a)rd from Wash ington. , The first appointment, after all, R -d a post office at that, was given to a Democratic editor. The State Convention of the W. C. T. U. will assemble at Greenville on the sth of next month. A mysterious stranger is in Atlan ta, Ga., buying all the old Confed erate money he can find. He has already expended $2,800 in this way, but will tell no one his purpose. Jacksonville, Fla., has an Indus trial Development company which has for its object the securing of manufactories. The plan is for the stockholders to pay in one dollar a month on each share of their stock. Pretty good idea. Mr. Wiley P. Smith, of Pearl River county, is the possessor of a chicken that has four legs, four wings, one head and two bodies, joined together at the rear in tandem fashion, It is over two weeks old, fully developed and is exceedingly healthy. We are glad the editors of some of our Mississippi exchanges do honor to our editorials. They take stealing is just the same—our articles and publish as their own. If neces sary, we could name over a half doz en of papers guilty of the charge. The Mississippi State Press Asso ciation will hold annual convention at Natchez, Wednesday, May 12th. The occasion promises of unusual business transactions and social bril liancy. The Press ball is the most noted event in Mississippi society. Those looking for a suitable place to make profitable investments should not overlook Bay St. Louis’ superior advantages. The Echo will take a pleasure in answering any and all inquiries relative to this section. We have the place, now we want the people. Mr. H. P, Beeman died at the home of his father, Ex-Congressman Beeman, at Morton, Miss., last Fri day. Mr. Beeman founded the Pass Christian Coast Beacon some twelve years ago, but owing to ill health re tired from editorial labors in 1890. He leaves a widow and two children. A contemporary very truthfully says; A great deal of discomfort arises from what people may say about you or your actions. Many unhappy persons seem to imagine that they are in an amphitheatre, with the assembled world as specta tors, whereas they are playing to empty houses. The J. T. Liddle Lumber Company has completed arrangements for building a logging railroad to furnish timber for their mills at Ilandsboro, The road will start from Old River lake, below the Morris mill on Tchou ticaboeuf river, and run in a norther ly direction. When completed it will be about ten miles lon^ D * Mississippi City has gone dry. In telligence from that place says: Mis sissippi City has fallen into the line of the dry towns of the State. The last beer license expired on Satur day, the liquor licenses have expired some agr. An application for license to retail here was defeated by par ties not living in this vicinity. “Can yen tell me what kind of weather we may have here next month?” wrote a farmer to the edi tor of his home paper. The editor jeplied: “It is my belief that the weather next month will be like your subscription bill.” The farmer won dered an hour what the editor was driving at, when he happened to think of the word “unsettled.” He sent a postal note. DO WE WANT HAWAII? The Hawaiian annexation continues to occupy the minds of our people, aud lias become of universal interest. The Echo Las taken a deep inter est in this vital question but has kept silent, watching for definite de velopments. It has never been the policy of the United States to annex territory, and it is doubtful whether wehave a constitutional right to do so. The theory of our government is that the people are the rulers, and if the people of one part of our possessions, then the people of all parts. Those territories which have been annexed by purchase, as in the case of our sister State, Louisiana, or by conquest, as in the case of Texas, were peopled by those who it was reasonable to suppose would, in time, become suitable citizens of our Re public—‘hat is, fit for rulers —for here every man is a King and every woman a Queen. In the cases cited, the countries adjoined ours and were sure to be come further peopled to a large ex tent, from the over plus of our own intelligent and civilized population. But Hawaii possesses none of these attractions to us—her people, outside of a handful of American, English and German residents—are in a semi barbarous state. Po we want them for rulers? Then again, the Chi nese coolies make up a large class of her population. We have been try ing to purge ourselves of the Chi neese. We have forever abolished slavery of all kinds. Now, if we take Hawaii, what are we to do with the Chinese slaves? That is really what they are. Do you want them or their children for rulers? Is there any advantage to be gain ed by annexing Hawaii, that would not be gained by a treaty granting that country protection, and receiv ing in return a permanent coaling station for our navy and such other concessions as we might reasonably expect? We think not. We cannot unload our surplus population upon these volcanic islands, hundreds of miles away. True, these islands of fer great inducements to capitalists, especially if they are allowed the coolie (or any other kind of) slavery there. But is it not contrary to our theory of government, and to our in stincts as a people, to engage in making private fortunes with the re sources of the government? The Echo has stated facts, very crudely, it is true, and doubtless when our level headed President’s Commissioners return from their ex amination of affairs in the Sandwich Islands, these facts will be modified to a considerable extent, still the Democratic theory of our govern ment cannot be gainsaid: the peo ple are the rulers. Mr. Harrison, in his head-long haste to annex Hawaii, seems to have forgotten this fact, as well as some of the international law upon which he is now posing. We do not want Hawaii. 81-ME TALISM. There is a movement in the United States Senate in favor of re-assem bling of the Brussels Congress, and it is said that Senator Alliston, of lowa, is expected to lead off in a re quest to the President to take action for the re-assemblage of this confer ence. It seems to us that the fail ure last year to come to any conclu sion, of any benefit to anybody, would only be repeated if these finan cial solons were again called togeth er; but perhaps the silver people would feel better if another attempt is made in this direction and we do not likely to do any harm. An exr change of ours very tritely says: 1 The Brussels conference is dead. It may possibly be galvanized into a gcmblance of life, but the vital spark 's gone. And yet we hold that, if the Senate should ask President Cleveland to take action for its re newal, he would be justified in doing so. It is like asking him to send the delegates to a wake; but unless that is done, the silverites will claim that the corpse was not dead. The claim will be made so brazenly and persistently that it will find believers in a widening circle. The bonanza advocates are master hands at build ing a lofty of falsehood upon the slightest foundation of fact. Improvements continue ,in all of the Gulf coast towns. CLEAN UP. Public health demands that the at mosphere the people breathe be pure, and common decency demands that our town be placed in a proper sani tary condition—cleanliness is di sease’s deadliest foe—so we urge that our people begin at once to pre pare for the coming season, wlpch promises to be very warm and con ducive to the germination of disease. You must clean up.—Carrollton Con servative The above timely advice is appli cable not only to Carrollton but to Bay St. Louis and every other com munity as well. The cholera’s com ing is not only possible but very pro brable, and its violence will be doubly to that of last year, “Clean liness is disease’s deadliest foe,” so much truth does this envolve that it should be studied and practiced to the fullest extent. Our lovely coast city must enjoy good sanitation to insure public health. It would prove prudent for the local Boards of Health of every community to pay immediate attention. Biloxi’s Bank Business. The following, taken from the Bi loxi Herald , shows how well the new Biloxi bank is doing; The bank of Biloxi yesterday closed its first month’s business with the most gratifying results to the stockholders. The deposits amount ing to $26,000 in round numbers and the other business of the bank being considerably ahead of what was ex pected of the most sanguine. Mr. O. M. Nilson, to whose efforts our citizens are indebted more to any other man for the organization of the bank, has been in Biloxi during the week and expressed himself as being much surprised at the volume of busi ness being done by the new institu tion. Those who were so fortunate as to take stock in the Bank of Biloxi are now congratulating themselves that that they did so, and while there is a demand for more slock tnere is none being offered for sale. In a shoit while the bank will pur chase a lot in the business centre of the town on which will be erected a handsome brick building, with all modern conveniences, costing about SSOOO.

When The Echo scribe first met Sam Harper, the urbane editor of the Raj'mond Gazette , he never suspect ed that this gentleman could tell ’em so well. For the biggest fish and snake stories, Mr. Harper, you do well. Congratulations, Brother. A Florida man selected a most firightful but efficacious method of suicide. He was employed in a saw mill, and, when be thought it was lime to end Ins dreary existence, he threw himself on the log which was being carried to the saw, grasped the log firmly and the work was done— he was cut into two parts. ‘What is that, mother!’ ‘An editor, son. Some folks seem to think he lias gold by the ton ; but listen, my child, and don’t give it away, ho works like a horse for a dollar a day. He sets at bis case till he wears out his eyes, and he tries writing copy to keep off the flies; in the summer 'tis flies, and in winter ’lis chills, and his creditors cheerfully send in their bills. But, alas I Ho is mortal, this editor man, and goes ti e wav of all built on Lis plan •' he turns up his toes and is quickly forgot, an I goes to the place where delinquents are not.” DR. L.

Near Bay St. Louis, April 4, £93. Dear Mike, old boy: I have bin wantin’ to write you fur some time, but cirkumstances wuz so as to prevent my so doing. I reached the Bay yesterday morriin’ by way of the G. O. P. (gel out abd push) route, my old war mule> Becky, havin’ er powerful case of hind leg rumatism, but I’se ’spent to use some of that rumatism medi cine I’se seed talked about in The Echo. Would yez believe it, Mike, I never seed so many nice things and never wuz my eyes so dazzled till last night when I went to one of those er Bay dances. You talk ’bout the Yeller Hill school creek dance? why, its left in an oak tree shade when put ’long side of this one. When I ar rived here,my first pleasure wuz to be “held up” by over a half dozen of ladies, all havin’ some dance cards fot sale. After some powerful talk I wuz “taken in” and gave one dol ler's worth of sweet’taters and a gal lon. of hor.’y fur a tiket —yes, fur one tiket and found out it wuz only worth a half doller milkin’ stool. I wuz always readin’ ’bout that er big dance and never ’spected to go, but when I got my dance card I wuz sure to go, so it tvuz now left fur me to get a nice new stilish pair 60 cent shoes, er pair blue jeans and a nice green flannel shirt with a yeller silk tie, and by The Echo I seed where a place called the Welcome Store where nice clolhin’ could be bought ulmost fur nuthrn’. When I got my putty riggin’ it wuz time fur me to be gettin’ down to the dance as it wuz goin’ on to 5 o’clock. When I reached the place what they called a dancing hall; it wuz 6 o’clock and no one wuz yet there. The folks have a kind of religion or club they call society and this pre vented the opening of the show until 8 o’clock. But when it wuz opened, it wuz opened. You know that nook up Hobolochit to creek where wo once seed that gal dressed in blue with a red gown? well, that’s just how that hull house looked inside. There wuz real live trees growing on the walls and all over, and bless me not if this isn’t the plain truth, but I seen graveyard wreaths hangiu’ aroun’ They wuz the same nice old wreath we seed on graveyard day in November. But Mike, the decorations —I think this is what they called il—was more than putty. t yumlhing ’bout the decora tions that pleased me most wuz a long string of green red bugs sus pended from the four korners of the ceiling. In one corner there wuz a mosquito bar bangin’ with paper bag lanterns. I thought our merchant Bill was enterprisin’ but I seed en terprise that beat his. It wuz a pu ty lady dishing out cold cream and pieces of fine corn bread covered with a coat of white wash, they call ed it cake. This putty lady made everybody buy, and I think she did a land office business. Then right across there wuz the serenade stand amidst a garde". I had to come to Bay to see a wonder —reel white, red and yeller roses growing on all sides and on cedars. Here was dished the serenade and it seem strange how it could be so sweet but I soon guessed it right. There wuz two lovely ladies at this stand and wuz their presence that added the sweetness to those sour little lemons. They did well and got in all the nickles and dimes. Talk ’bout music, Mike, well do you know that it beat our Flint Creek baud, j never seed such nice music made with such instruments. It wuz way late when they played a song and 1 guessed no one knew how lo danced fur the folks got up and start walkin’ ’round and round and round they went. But I soon found out that they did this fur to show their fineries fur they had a right to do so. I seed all the gals dressed like the fairies Grandma Ilookenlankenberry tells ’bout; the boys looked nice but the gals tc ok me. Tnere wuz some ladies an 1 mens thefolas called floor managers. It wuz a good idea for t e bosses to have floor managers, for if that floor would not had been mana ed maybe it would had all came down. That floor jest did shake and gave ’em work. Bless them for they all knowed their business. Then they wuz a kind ’e 'ception committee to show the folks where the dancin’ wuz. They wuz ribbon on their coats to make ’em .look nice as they did. When they got ready to dance, the hoys start wrltin’ some poetry in books that wuz hanging ’round the gals necks. The books had the picture of a Bay (not bay color) gal with yeller hair and a dress of red like the skies are sum time, It wuz a putty picture, but land sakes, Mike, she forgot to put on her josy! Well, the folks danced, danced and danced and when I left at 2 o’clock they wuz stilt lookin’ lovely and gallant and—dancing. I would not venture to say if they have yet stopped. Tim Flanigan. Mr. Of Rochester, N. Y. Deaf for a Year y. Caused by * Catarrh in the Head\^ Catarrh is a Constitutional disease, and requires a Constitutional Remedy like Hood’s Sarsaparilla to cure it. Read: “ Three years ago, as a result of catarrh, I entirely lost my hearing and was deaf for more than a year. I tried various things to cure it, and had several physicians attempt It, but no improvement was apparent. I could distin guish no sound. I was intending putting myself under the care of a specialist when someone suggested that possibly Hood’s Sar saparilla would do me some good. I began taking it without the expectation of any lasnug help. To my surprise and great joy 1 found when I had taken three bottles that my hear ing was returning. I kept on till I had taken three more. It Is now over a year and I can hear perfectly well. lam troubled but very little with the catarrh. I consider this a remarkable case, and cordially recommend Hood’s Sarsaparilla to all who have catarrh.” Herman Hicks, 30 Carter Street, Rochester, N.
