We announce having received the now catalogue of the 11. Sophie Newcomb college, of New Orleans, also from the press of Messrs Kolb & Lecler, publish ers, a copy of the historic souve nir of the C. K. of A. While dwelling on the deplora ble condition of the Reid and Car roll beach sidewalks, this paper forgot to mention that of Mr. Bowers’ next to Mr. Reid’s, which is in need of attention. It would never do to “make flesh out of one and flsh of the other.” Hon. R. N. Harris, of Cohoama county, candidate for auditor of public accounts, was here and along the gulf coast this week on a tour of political inspection. He is a candidate deserving of the full recognition at the hands of the voters, and it is very probable that he will secure the nomina tion. ' As was foretold in these col umns two or three weeks ago, at the last meeting of the city coun cil it was agreed to adopt electric light for public illumination. The Echo has repeatedly dwelled on the necessity of such improve ments. ——————— A pleasure much enjoyed this week was a visit from the esteem ed Chas. C. Capmbell who by the way is a candidate for the office of clerk of the Supreme court. He has no greater claim to the office than any other -good Democrat, hut his claim is equal to any. He is now deputy clerk, and hy his familiarity with the duties of the office, |ho will, if elected, enter the office fully prepared to at once discharge those duties effi ciently and with that promptness so necessary to the satisfactory’ dispatch of business. The Grand Lodge K. of P, con venes at Aberdeen May I4th. ••HELP /IE, CASSIUS, OR I SINKI“ Again wo are urged to agitate a question to which wc hay,o; al ready devoted much space and attention, and which, apparetjfly, has been disregarded by the peo ple. The question to which wo refer is that of water works, a necessity without which we can not reasonably expect to endure much longer. From tine to time within the last few years, fire has visited our city wliich has re sulted in much destruction. Not withstanding this fact, no step was ever taken by the people or the people’s representatives to ef fect means by which; the destruc tive monster could be conquered, or at least fought with. Strange it is that our city so precautions in other particulars should bo so delinquent in this respect. Should an infectious disease bo declared in an adjoining town, immediate measures would bo promulgated to prevent the dis ease from reaching us, and the strictest surveilance would be en forced so these measures w’ould not be violated, and yet the same people stand with folded arms while a disaster, more fearful than all pestilences, threatens us momentarily. The fire of last Friday night, though slight, again demonstrated our inability to combat with the flames. It is almost as easy to drain the Hay of St. Louis with a tea spoon as it is to extinguish a fire with a drop of wafer! In less than half an hour Friday night all the wells in the vicinity of the Are were ns dry ns though they had never known water; and had it not been for the high tide which prevailed enabling the procuring of water from the Bay there is no surmising to what extent the loss would have amounted. Prentiss in justification of self defense said: “"If War was de clared against your country by an insulting foe, would you wait till your sleeping cities were wakened by the terrible music of the burst ing bomb? till your green fields wore trampled by the hoofs of the invader and made red with the blood of your brethren? No! you would send forth fleets and armies—you would unloose upon the broad ocean your keen fal cons—and the thunder of your guns would arouse stern echoes along the hostile coast!” The stirring queries of the orator finds no response in the soul of our community. For over one cen tury the peace and tranquility of our city has been wakened by the awful sound of the fire bells, homes have been swept away as though they were of no value, safety has been trampled under foot by the invader, and yet no falcon have we unloosed, nor has the sound of one single gun yet been heard to warn the enemy* The logical view of Prentiss ap plies to our city as well as to th e individual. Each administration since the incorporation of onr city devoted time and money to its develop ment. Against this, however, we have naught to say; hut we do think that it would be better had no street ever been opened, not one shell placed on our main road than be in our present condition. Certain it is that the money which has been expended in opening and shelling new streets in recent years would have been sufficient to inaugurate a system of water work. However, the past is passed, but we have the present and the future with which to contend. We must have water: without it there can be no safety, with out safety there can be no prog ress, no prosperity. Those that are here now are in constant fear, and the stranger is too wise to to invest in a community which does not even assure him the first principles of welcome and protec tion. Of course an engine is also necessary, but if the purchase of it would incur too great a debt we can do without it for a while. W ater is the sterner necessity. We have a fearless and pa triotie people in our community who always turn out on masse and do heroic work. They have repeatedly shown that they will work, but the trouble in they have nothing to work with. Every body knows that wells and pumps cannot yield much water —that a hundred mon can drain a dozen of them in half an hour; then comes the collapse: no water, and the willing worker has to retire before the superior force of the fire. Besides the danger and trepi dation which arises from a lack of water we have another serious thing to contend with and that is insurance rates. While they are not so high as to he beyond our reach, yet they are such as to de mand consideration. The Echo suggests I hat this im portant question be put to a vote. Lot the people decide whether we shall have protection or not. The Bay is so situated as to have its beach front swept completely away under favorable conditions to the fire. Is it possible that an intelligent people will stand by with momentary destruction sur rounding us and yet take no moans to avert it? The question should ho determined now and forever. If we are to stand upon a bank of quick-sand, or even worse, a mount Yeshvius, let us know it; and if wo are to have jjfflfttection, tell us so. Let some thing be done. If we are to ever crush the enemy that is even now laughing at our weakness, let it he done at once. If he is to be lot alone to roam at will and strike when he chooses, proclaim it to the world, so when Bay St. Louis will have been swept away the world can inscribe I his simple ep itaph: HF.RE WASTE NO PITY, SELF-DESTRUCTION WAS ENCOUR AGED. A PRIDE AND CREDIT TO THE BAY. The People’s Bulldingand Loan Association of Bay St. Louis held one of its regular monthly meet ings Monday night and transact ed important business. For three weeks past The Echo has been publishing in its advertising col umns the fifth annual statement of the financial condition of this organization, and since figures never lie it might be well for one’s self to Judge of the prosperity at tained. The association was es tablished on a sound basis by sound men with a sound purpose, and is flourishing right along with an exceedingly bright outlook. The office, located in the court building, is always open and the courteous secretary will always take pleasure in showing the books and the exact standing of the association, and if necessary detail the vast benefits produced. The People’s Building and Loan Association is an institution which Bay St. Louis might well feel proud of in commendation of its progressive citizens. In a recent decision of R, N. Harris vs. J. A. Dolan, the Delta Advance says the Supreme court has practically declared the local option election in Coahoma coun-% ty null and void, thus making the county “wet” again. In the elec tion the county went “dry” by a small majority, and to test the va lidity of said election Mr. Dolan circulated a petition and complied with all the requirements of the law as if no election had been held, and when the petition came before the board of mayor and al dermen of Clarkesdale they al lowed same, but the sheriff re fused to issue the license. Mr, Dolan appealed to the Circuit court, and the sheriff was sustain ed, but upon appeal to the Su preme court the decision was re versed and remanded, on the ground of the board not meeting in the courthouse and therefore its action was not legal. Upon sec ond trial the case case was decid ed in Dolan’s favor and the sher iff then appealed to the Supreme j court, but the decision of the low er court was sustained.

The Supreme court of Louisia na last Monday made final dispo sition of blood-sucking vampires that were polluting the morality of New Orleans and vicinity and starving the purity of the people. The chief of this judicial tribunal stamped out the marts of shame disreputably known as concert halls, stamped out prize fighting which is not bad in itself but the ruination of young men and the horror of conservative people and stamped affirmation of justice made by a lower court which sen tenced one Doudoussat, convicted by a jury for receiving a bribe of one hundred dollars for his vote on a certain ordinance granting a bar room license. The miscarriage of justice has been so frequent in the Crescent City that the law-abiding citizens were rather discouraged in any further attempt to frustrate the proceedings of the devils which infest that city—a city known of late to the outside world as f lic “Mecca of thieves and thugs,” “Paradise of sluggers” “Hell of infamy” and other appellations of the same strata. The legisla tive ball of the city has been the birthplace of many outrageous perpetrations on the public’s rights and trusts, their interests and liberty, their welfare and honor, and now the tide of justice does not recede but floats the hopes and confidence of all the good people. The mandate forcing the doors of the concert halls to lie closed 1 animates the good morals of the city, rescues many destined to be allured, and restores once more the good name of Now Orleans. It could never be understood, unless for political reasons, why such an institution as the Louis iana State Lottery Cos. was forced to abandon life and these cess pools of degradation and corrup tion to flourish in the heart of a civilized city. The Supreme court also decided on the same day the fate of prize fighting within the State’s limits in such manner that dealt death. We sec nothing so bud in the fistic or manly art, hut its influence on the young. It invariably creates subjects out of young gentlemen and boys to become hoodlums and and thugsof the first order, lowers morals, debars them from good society, breeds negligence of edu cational cultivation and refine ment and fosters degradation. All honor to the Supreme court of our neighboring State, in erect ing such a staunch bulwark to stay the ravages of ruin grasping the people of its metropolis,;and The Echo gladly, notes that justice is not retrogressing as many have been falsely impressed. A representative of The Echo had the pleasure o'f riding with Mr, C. A. Simpson, the proprie tor of the Pass Christian Coast Beacon, the other evening. From this gentleman was learned that his publication is doing financial ly well and the job presses kept busy from morning till night, a prosperity which we note with fraternal good feeling. The Memphis Commercial Ap peal, ever abreast to the times, has established a Mississippi bu reau with headquarters at Jack son with Mr. T. M. Henry, one of the State’s most cultured and best informed writers, as mana ger. The Commercial Appeal is one of the best newspapers in the country, and its daily visit is wel comed to our editorial room. Be careful bow you apeak of a woman’s character. Think how many years she has been building it; of the toils and privations endured ; of the wounds received, and let no suspicion follow her actions. The purity of woman is the salvation of the race, the hope of future great ness, the redemption of man. Wine out her purity and roan sinks beneath the wave of despair, with not a star to guide bis life into a channel of safely. Think twice before you speak, and remember that any hoc can root up the fairest flower that ever grew, so the Vilest man can ruunhe purest woman’s character. Will Be Elected. Anew name on the announcement slate is that of Hon. Rich arc! Alcndes, the | resent urbane and worthy sec retary of the city, who has, after long and thoughtful consideration, conceded to the incessant urgings.of the public to become an aspirant to the office of Justice of tbe Peace, a position which we arc positive Mr. Mendes will dll with much credit not only to himself but to those who’ll put him in this chair of honor by reason of his competency and dignified yet popular personality. The Echo is pleased to note the foregoing and joins an appreciative public in help ing to slug his praises so he may be successful and by his services bene fit the communi ly. OUR ECHOES.

The spirit of the age, being so ad tdterated is of little or no advant-ago to tbi-sage. The Bible calls death the ‘‘King of Terrors” yet every day some go to it unhesitatingly. The ailmbers of Edgar Aden who in turn endeavor to imitate him may be called Poe-l-asters. Some call it ‘‘Sleeve ballonacy” Others “woman’s fallacy.” Thera is quite an army of drum mers now, so peace reigns not always with the average store keeper.

Mr. Davis, the Temperance advo cate lectured Sunday night on pro hibition to a “full” house. His lec ture was a rum bling denunciation of the fiery liquid.
