The last week’s issue preyed very interesting and spicy reading, and the hoys seemed pleas ed with the praise bestowed on the mili tary and other societies of the college. The boys who were fortunate to secure places on the rolls of honor were proud of the distinction, and .vigorous efforts are being made in the different depart ments to secure this honor at the next roll vail. The number of students still continues to Increase. Masters Sidney and Robert Sando/. arrived last Monday to continue their studies. The two sons of Mi. H. N. Hamilton of the Bay were enrolled among the students last week. The class of’9B is dividing nttenl'on between the March examinations and thfji annual scries of essays, as announced ill the notes of last week, the first essay of the series was given last Saturday. It treats of the Negro Question. The class was given till February 15 to prepare the subject, on which date the papers will be handed to a committee of examiners. Quite a surprise was given the members oftheS.S. C. Cadets last week. Our popular postmaster, Mr. Jos. E. Saucier, presented the company with a beautiful sword. The compliment was highly ap preciated and the command takes this oc- casion to tender Its thanns to the gener ous donor. At a general meeting of the cadets on Thursday the sword was form ally accepted, and the S. S. C. C.’s re paired to the postofllce where in a nlco little speech by Capt. 8. S. Beall the thanks and appreciation of the Cadets were tendered our genial postmaster. As a further token of esteem the company unanimously voted to enroll Mr. Saucier’s name on the list of the honorary members of the company. The cadets company Is the most popu lar organization In the college and are fust progressing in the military art. Rev. Father Proodergrast spent a few hours on the college campus last week, enjoying the games and witnessing the drills. Junior company B has begun Its dally drills and bids fair to make the seniors work hard to hold their position. The St. Stanislaus Orchestra and Brass Band under the direction of Pro! John A.Hemmersbach haye made great progress and many new pieces have been added to their respective repertoires. The students are at a loss to determine the cause ot their not having received any serenade Iroin the musicians. Ills thought that the Professor willoilrop a surprise some day on the college folks. The talented and gifted portion of the college must clans are seeking some public occasion to display their musical abilities.

The prosWcfft'SM ihe wheelmen informs the correspondent that the wheel club will turn out in full force on the flrst fa vorable opportunity. Athletics hold their own, and claims many devotees to Its tandard. Huuday the Inclement weather confined the boys indoors. A spirited game of baseball was promised, but “old probs.” bad the deciding say. On last Tuesday an interesting game of prisoner’s bast claimed attention from the seniors, the score standing 2 to 0.

He also held tort in his former seat of thirteen years. For an hour oe questioned the graduates on geometrical proposition, striving to im press on the class the necessity of self reliance and assurance. The class was delighted, to say the least, and it would welcome many mere visits ot that nature. In the various departments the several professors announce publicly the names of those In the class who have shown un usual taste and application.

Martha Cazeneuve. “ Tis hard to break the lender cord When love has bound the heart; I ’Tis hard, so hard, to speak the word, I Must wo forever part.” The people of Bay Bt. Lonia on Wed nesday morning were most severely shook ed at the announcement that Mrs. Martha t'azeneuve had breathed her last on the night previous, at 10:30 o’clock,^ No Inline slanda more prominent and identified with onr people of the first than !|he Caieneuvo family, ami tolearn so un expectedly that the wife and mother of Ibis fireside had been summoned away was indeed a- shock, and the sorrowful tidings brought grief to the circles of many of onr people. Mrs. Cazeneuve had not boon ill, and those around her at the time of the de mise entertained no idea that the end was so near only when she gave signs of a want, for breath, and, embracing her husband,telling of theeiid, said good-bye. The deceased was a Miss Martha Green, born in this connty thirty-eight years ago. and was the adopted daughter of Captain John V. Tonlme. Bhe was mar ried to Joseph P. Cazeneuve, ex sheriff of Hancock county, and at present a promi- nent merchant of this city, some twenty years ago. Their union was blessed with several children of which seven are living, six girls and one boy, namely: Jessie, Mabel, Cleromie, Gertrude, Irene, Ruth, and Joseph Mrs. Cazeneuve was a member of the Catholic church, sincere in her religion, in sympathy with all projects for the bet terment of mankind, and was a most ac tive devotee of the faith. Her homo was an Ideal one. There she was loved and honored by her family and reigned ns a queen with all the love and gentleness that pervaded and like sunshine bright ned the sacred precincts ol home. She in terpreted well those callings of her sphere; and was as true to her friends, and ns lovable, ns to those of her immediate sur roundings. It is for this her friends were many, and therefore greater the extent and more irreparable the loss. The obsequies were held Wednesday af ternoon at 4 o’clock, Very Rev. Father Blano officiating. The remains were tak en to the church, and then consigned to the now cemetery to their final resting place within the bosom of mother earth. The funeral cortege was a magnificent indication ofthntesteem.und the universal regret for the departed, so numerous were its members. The c.hnrrh had been reach ed and carriages were still in line turning the corner of Main and Front streets. In addition many of the mourners were afoot. Fully comprehending this sad event of the past week. Tbo Echo, excited by profound sorrow, feels with Hie bereaved that bitterness which has stirred so full a cup of the poison of sorrow, and extends sincere condolence. “Yet again we hope to meet thee t When the day ot life is fled, 1 Ami In Heaven with joy to greet thee I Where no farewell tear is shed.” ' r —Anti-Bond Meeting. Saturday night at the courthouse n meeting of a mini her of the taxpayers of the city was hold at the courthouse for tlie purpose of voicing a sentiment In op position to the proposed municipal bond issue. Hon. D. B. Seal expressed the object ot the assemblage by stating that the day before the governor had sent in to the legislature that the board of mayor and aldermen of the city of Hay St Louis be granted the privilege of issuing bonds to the amount of $40,000 foi waterworks and elettric lights, that this was an unex pected proceeding, that his excellency was no doubt misinformed, that the ease now in litigation before the ctiprts should be allowed its course, that the popular vote ot the people should prevail, etc. Hon August Keller was unanimously se lected chairman of the meeting, and City Secretary H. Mendes secretary. Colonel Soul dwelled at length on tfio subject Mr. Frank Dabney, after being repeated ly urged, responded in an address of a yi gorons anti-trend strain and for twenty minutes made the fur fly. The following resolution was offered by Mr. Dabney and adopted. It was voted that he go to Jackson and present the paper, which reads '*B follows: “Resolved, That whereas the governor has empowered the present session of the legislature to authorize the mayor and aldermen ot the cit" of Bay St. Louis to issue bonds in the sum of $, r >o,ooo, and to build waterworks, etc.; therefore ho it “Resolved by the taxpayers of the city of Hay St. Louis in mass meeting assem bled, that we advise the governor and le gislature of the true state of the. cause, namely: Said board attempted to issue said bunds without authority and were enjoined from issuing said bonds until the matter is submitted to the voters of said city; that this injunction's in force; that Complainants were ready to try the ease at the late term of the court; that the cause was not set down for bearing be cause the attorney fur tlie board in the bond issue matter ask that the matter go over until the July term on account of his service in the state senate. We believe the governor and the legislature, inform ed of the facts, will not pass the bill with out submitting it to the will of the ma jority of the taxpayers of the citv of Hay St. Louis.” Mr. Dabney accepted, and subscriptions to the amountoi S2O were then solicited to defray traveling expenses. Tbe colored members present and two or three whites, the former many times in majority, de posited amounts to the aggregate of sl4-65. K. Rniseeb, alter the meeting, collected the necessary amount, and the following morning before the sun had risen onr friend Dabney was speeding on to Jack son on the Pearl. Notwithstanding these tacts both branches of the legislature have passed the bill in question, and to become law awaits only the signature of the gov nor. All eyes are turned to Jackson. The Reason Why. Some friend was teasing ‘‘Doc” Evans about his peculiar laugh the other day and insisting on his changing it, saying that it reminded him very forcibly of a duck. “You are right,” said the Doctor. “I’ll tell yon why: You know in the summer time I have a penchant for white linen clothes. A certain little fellow up the Hay, whoso mother has some largo white ducks, is a little friend of mine. While out in the yard one day he pointed to a large white duck, and exclaimed: ‘Mam ma, look Mr. Evans!”’ Very Rev.

REPORT OF THE YELLOW FEVER Investigating Committee, Recently on the Coast. Tho joint committee of the legislature appointed to investigate the recent yellow fever along the coast on Tuesday sub mitted their report. It was adopted by both bouses. It follows; “To the Senate and House of Represen tatives of the Statu of Mississippi: “Gentlemen Your select committee ap pointed for the purpose of investigating tlie subject of the Into yodow fever epide mic in tills state, and which was required to rsporl specifically upon certain matters embraced in the said resolution, respect fully beg leave to report as follows: “In arriving at. the facts which your honorable bodies desired to lie reported upon we have encountered great difficulty, j We have examined a great number ofwit | nesses, and have caused their testimony to bo reduced to writing, which wo pre sent with this report. ‘■We have been unable to ascertain with certainty the time of the appearance of yellow fever in tlie stale of Mississippi, lint from tlie best Information which we have been aide to obtain, after a care ful and exhaust ivc research. we are led to the belief that the yellow fever appear ed first at Ocean Springs either very late in the inottih of May, 1H97. If wo are right, in this conclusion, the yellow fever was introduced into Mississippi through a vessel coming from Guatemala by resi dents of Mississippi, who had been tem porarily sojourning in Guatemala, “It w as developed by our investigations that at the lime the vessel referred to, namely, the Breakwater, sailed from Gua temala yellow fever was prevalent along the coast of that and other Central Ani eiicau states. Testimony which Is to us shows that there was sickness aboard that vessel on Ms upward trip, though we arc not advised that anyone was actually ill at the time when it reached the port of New Croatia. The two cil izens of Missis sippi above referred tn, who were pusseii geis aboard ship and who had been for sumo time in Central America, warn di rectly from the vessel to their homes in Ocean Springes without fumigation, car rying with them baggage Hint had not been disinfected. On the night of their arrival one of ihese parties was taken sick and within a lew days fever broke out in their immediate vicinity. From that time on fever of some character was prevalent In the town of Ocean Springs, and spread with great rapidity, when until Anally, when the prevailing disease was declared to be yellow fever and the quarantines wore established, the residents of Ocean Springs were found to be practically ini mime; that is, nearly every person in the town hadsuffered from fever, leaving few to become infected. "It is also to be noted that no person who was afflicted with iho lever which began, aa wo think, very shortly after the return ol thesegentlemen from Guatemala, contracted or suffered from fever of any character after iho true character of thy disease was ascertained, " 1 hat Ocean .•springs was the initial point ol infection there can be no doubt, lor at 1 lie time the other points along the coast and the cities of New Orleans and Mobile were (irst becoming infected, the disease at Ocean Springs bud practically run its coni sc, and soon thereafter entire ly disappeared, because there was no ma terial on which for it to feed. "We cannot say that either the Board of Health of the stale of Mississippi, or the National Marine Hospilal Service, was at fault or to blame for the introduc tion ol fever. Onr Investigation lias brought us irresistibly io the conclusion that the labors ol the State Board and of iho Marine Hospital Service were both eminently elllctent and careful, and onr opinion ih tbul the vessel above referred to lauded in Now Orleans prior to the date on which quarantine is usually begun. “Wo are directed to report us to what action was taken ns by the state board of health to prevent the introduction of yel low fever into this state,and what action was taken by the slate board to prevent its introduction. In reply to this question wodesirolosay that the quarantine main tained by the state board of health was, in our opinion, prudently, wia’ely and rigidly administered. Alter a lull investigation ol the facts we cannot point to a single precaution winch might have been taken by that body which was not taken by them. After the disease had taken a foot hold, and lifter it bud been declared to bo yellow fever, the board was diligent in the extreme in quarantining infected points and in smallest, possible limits. “Wo especially commend the very, able and effective service rendered by those members and attaches of the slal hoard nt health who were located upon the gulf coast, and tool that the results of tliJlr labors cannot bo overestimated. “We cull attention to the fact that the spread ol the fever over the slate was very limited, and deairo to say that Hie efforts of those gentlemen whose labors lay along the gulf coast wero often ham peredo by conditions exceedingly adverse and trying. *■ We have been unable to ascertain with any accuracy the K-sa occaosioned by the interruption of commerce and trade, and Hie business loss sustained generally by the people of the stale by reason of Hiis epidemic. It is a matter of public knowl edge that tor some lime all local truffle along many of the railroads was entirely snspeiided, and that on one ol the roads, namely Hie Alabama and Vicksburg, all trains of every character were for some time stopped. “We have attempted to gain from the business men who wero located along the linos of the railroads that ran through in fected points some idea us to the percen tage of loss of their business. Their esti mates vary at from 25 to 40 per cent, and wo are of opinion that the first lignre is a minimum estimate of the loss. Along the coast, not only business but property values have suffer'd greatly, and we are safe in eaying that the real estate of that section has temporarily depreciated from 25 to 30 tier cent. This depreciation wo believe to be temporary, and confidently hope that the passage of another year will see the property values of that bean tifnl and healthful section entirely re stored* “Within the infected districts, Hie mu nicipalities of Bay St. Louis, Biloxi, Ocean Spiings and Koran ton paid out sums varying at from ft 100 to ijUiiOO, anil Hie sums expended by the comities of Hancock, Harrison and Jackson will ave rage *3OOO each, “The lime at our disposal has not per milled ns to inquire specifically into the expenditures made by counties which were not infected, in preventing the in troduction of the disease, but from tbo slight ilifniination which we have been able to obtain, the amounts must have been very large. “Inquiring into the conduct and man agement of the government quarantine station nr. .Ship Island, wo found that nothing could he urged either against Hie station or its management, save rumor and fear. Wo were unable, after Hie must diligent inquiry, to find the slightest evi dence to warrant a conclusion that the infection was introduced through that station. We must report that the station is efficiently managed by officers who un derstand and conscientiously execute their duties. Wo cannot find that the sta tion ns conducted is a menace either to the health or the commerce of the state. It is situated more Hmu'ton miles Irnnijllie main shore. The quarantine groumfs are strictly isolated, and the regulations ri gidly enforced. “We found considerable complaint at the fact that vessels coming in through Bhiulsland Pass are required to pass by the loading fleet, and the licet, in tha bal last waters before entering the quar antine. But the evidence before us CAZENEUVE’S DRY GOODS \ EMPORIUM SEELS THE GOODS. SHOES, CLOTHING, HATS, ETC. Money Last Longest at Cazeneuve’s, Front Near Union Sts. abnndaiitlr demonstrated that the harbor was snfflccieiiHy large to pel mi t incoming veaselH to) pass at least one mile from any ship either loading or discharging ballast and wo were not cited by any competent iroof to any instance where any vessel lad approached nearer than the limit fix ed by the quarantine regulations, namely, one-naif mile, which seems conceded by all authorities to be sufficient. “If we were permitted to make any suggestion with reference to the admin istration by the Marine Hospital Service of their station at Ship Island, those sug gestions would be that the route to the <iuarantine lines to be taken by incoming vessels be plainly marked by appropriate buoys, and that an inspector be placed at the extreme western end of Ship Island, whose duty it should be to board all in coming Vessels at the time when they are spoken by the pilot without the bar, or at any other rate before entering the pass. “While we cannot find that the quaran tine station at Ship Island is a menace either to the health or commerce of Mis sissippi, wo do find that it affects the sea coast injuriously in a way which seems to us impossible to us to remedy except by its removal. It seems to us that the pub lie living away from the Mississippi sen coast. who frequent that section for health and pleasure principally during the sum mer season, lias become thoroughly con vinced that the station is a menace, and that the fear bred in their minds by this popular error is so strong as to permit no cope of its speedy eradication. If we knew of any place other than Ship Island at which a quarantine station could be located, wo would unhesitatingly report in favor of its removal, but. wo have been unable to find, after a careful inspection of all the islands along the coast, any such place. All I hese islands, except Chaudelenr, are as near, or nearer to the main shore than Ship Island, and an inspection of Chaiideluiir Island and of its harbor has satisfied the committee that it is not a suitable place in which to anchor a vessel or maintain a quarantine station. By this e do say that the buildings necessary for a quar antine station cannot be erected upon Chaudelenr Island, What we do mean is that an examination of the hurbor and, a careful inspection of the island, on a day conceded to be average vveatlier, con vinces ns that the roadstead for vessels is eminently uiisale, and that it would boa manifest and unnecessary hardship to require vessels in quarantine to lie in these exposed waters* “Responding to that portion of the re aoliitioii which directs ns to report on the present quarantine taws, we beg to say: "The statutes now in three are in the main sufficient. There is one amendment however, which should be incorporated in some appropriate shape in the present laws. The regulations with reference to travel, fumigating and quarantine should be uniform throughout the stale. The law should bo the same from one end of the state to the other; and while We do not favor the abolition oflocal quarantine nor do we favor giving the stale board of health the power to force upon any per son or thing which they may deem infect ed, we think the state board should bo supreme in the matter of permitting persons and things to pass through and beyond any county or town. So long as the regulation with referunco to infection and travel and ihcconditions upon which the railroads may be operated vary with comities and towns through which they they pass, it is impossible to maintain any commerce during a plague. “Let, the system of inspection and dis infection lie uniform throughout the slate, and lot the stale authorities have full power to permit, under such restrictions as they may deem wise, travel and com merce through the statd, this authority to be con lined entirely tn Hie passage of persons and articles through local quar antines, without the right to lodge those persons or articles at any place against the will ot the authorities of that plate. “The people become in times of epidem ic SO thoroughly panic stricken that they are disposed to take qnaianline laws into their own hands. This should be guarded against. But it the state board is given authority to Interfere with municipal and local quarantines any further than is above suggested, the result will be to pro mote, rather than destroy the shotgun quarantine.” A Blaze. On Thursday evening at about 8 o’clock onr quirt town was aroused from its ro ycno by the pealing of the fire bells and loud cries *>l lire. As usual, everyone Was on the alort and found the blaze to be at the residence of Mr. Philip Hickey, on north trout street, near the “Bayou.” In an Increditablv short time a largo crowd was on the acetic and a few stout hearts and Willing hands wero battling with the flames and trying to save the household effects, lor everyone saw the house itself was doomed Incomplete destruction, due to the absence of a much needed tire de partment.
