Toulmo, which sad event oc urred at the homo of his matci.uil grandmother at Odin, Ills. The infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sidney C arver died Thursday morning. The little one came to the world only nine days preceding its death, anil like some exquisite flower its life was short lived. Mrs. Carver before her marriage was Miss Emma St. Pierre. Mrs. John A. Breath received the sad news Sunday of the death on that day of her sister, Mrs. J. Casanova, at Log town, this county, a most estimvble and well-known resident of that place. Tho funeral look place Monday, but the pest of mosquitoes that infested the country precluded Mrs. Breath’s attending. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen held a special session at the City Hall. Thursday evening, that day being the Ist of October made the session necessary, according to the State statutes, to ad mit tho City Auditor file tne Annual Financial Report of the city, which ap pears in this week’s Echo, and will be perused with deep interest. A liquor petition to retail ‘'vinous, malt ami alcoholic liquors” by L. M. Oex is being circulated for signatures. That Mr. Gex, one of the city's prosper ous merchants is seeking a renewal of his privilege license, is the best of evi dence that his business in this particular line the past year has been satisfactory. We hope for him a continuance. Arrivals during the week at Clifton House: G. W. Williams, Mobile, Ala.; Mr.and Mrs. Philips, Magnolia, Miss.; J. S. Dies, Perkinston, Miss.; John B. Dumestre, Jno.

A colony of posteferous mosquitoes have befen taking possession of the city and country all Wbek, and their industry in quest of a living is indeed a contrast to the typical Bay St. Louisian who is wont to wait until all things comes to him. Fortunately the swarm has taken flight and only a few stragglers arc left either to fa’ 1 in battle or victim to Boreas’ early coming. The Coast Train Limited, leaving New Orleans this afternoon at 11:30 o'clock, will be the last of the season. The re gular Coast Train leaving New Orleans at 4:45 o’clock P.

In addition to the Board of Supervi sors’ regular meeting Monday, there will also be at the courthouse a meeting of the County Election Commissioners to revise the poll books prior to the regu lar Congressional elections, which will be held November 4th. On the sumo date elections will be held in this county to fill vacancies in beat offices, as already stated in these columns. At St. Stanislaus College anew de partment has been created, designated as Section B of the Ist Commercial Course. The instructor of this class is Brother Arthur, who arrived this week from France. In a short time, it is ex pected to make another addition to the teaching corps, forming another class in the intermediate department. The at tendance at present is 20 per cent better than last year at this period. Parapher nalia for a complete new gymnasium is shortly expected, and the anticipation thereby created in the circle of athletes cannot be described. The Echo’s attention has been called by a tax-payer of Hay St. Louis to the splendid work being performed out on Main street, and requesting that the city administration or Street Commissioner be complimented on the manner in which this work is being so practically and splendidly executed; that such com ment publicly made would serve as an incentive to wider effort and thus pro mote the good work to all parts of the city. From description of locality we are led to say the work is outside of the city limits and consequently the credit goes to the county authorities. Uouisv ll i 4 J iihvil. J R. (I. SrnsJula.

COMPETITION Under the above heading the Memphis Morning News discusses a matter that is not foreign to interest and discussion in Huy St. Louis municipal ownership of electric lights, etc. One argument used against city ownership of public utilities is that it brings thorn into po litics. Asa matter of fact it is the pri vate ownership of them that does this very thing. In discussing both phases of tho question the Morning News says: Municipal government as a political science has been slow of development. From time to time this country has been startled by disclosures of conditions of far-reaching rottenness and corruption in tho different cities. Since the days of tho great Now York Tweed scandal many other cities have found themselves as deep in the mire ns Now York was in the mud only on a somewhat smaller scale. Until recent years taxation, police pro tection for tho enforcement of the law, and the question of license gave rise to most of the boodle rings organized for the purpose of grafting, blackmailing and bribe-taking. To check these abuses a healthy pub lic sentiment and watchfulness on the part of the taxpayers generally has been all that was necessary. But modem in vention has added an hundredfold to the perplexities of city government. Water works, electric lights, electric railways, telephone systems, gas and other utili ties have given rise to the franchise plan, which places public utilities in pri vate hands. Tho earning power of the exclusive right of a corporation to fur nish say, water or lights, to a city of 100,000 inhabitants is enormous and the value of a plant of corresponding pro portions. The evil of the system lies chiefly in tho conflict of interest between the own ers of the exclusive franchise and the general public. What is best tor tne public is not best for the corporation, on tho principle that tho less tho people get tho more tho franchise earns. The franchise property is of such great value that the question of taxation is o large on ■ with it, and this, connect ed with tho greater Question of the re gulation of the rate for public and pri vate service, gives to a franchise corpo ration a very great direct financial in terest in the legislation of tho officials of the municipality. Tho tendency of such a condition is inevitably toward corruption, and if there is the germ of dishonesty in tho hearts of the city officials or the mem bers of the franchise plant tho tempta tion is generally sufficient to hatch it out. When the public goes into the busi ness of creating interests in private hands which run counter to its own, it runs the risk of destroying good citi zens. The severest test for patriotism arises when self-interest comes in con tact with the general welfare. If you hear of a jury being bribed the interest of some franchise owner or grabber is often found at stake. If you hear of municipal election frauds you will dis cover that some candidate in the race is the tool of a franchise corporation. If you hear of the corruption of aldermen you may find that a municipal monopo ly has a hand in it; and St. Louis is having her disgrace exposed before the eyes of the world today simply because the people permitted the fostering of large private interests contrary to the public good. It is, therefore, not at all remarkable that the question of city ownership of public utilities has in the last few years grown greatly in favor. Under city own ership the waterworks, electric light plant, etc., afford small inducement for subornation and bribery. None but the people has interest at stake and the door to corporation is closed. It is the peo ple’s property and those who ran it have no temptation not to operate it in the interest of the public. Municipal own ership is one of the chief solution for municipal corruption. Workman from New Orleans have ar rived at Biloxi to place the clock in po sition in the belfry of the new Catholic church at that place. The bell was hoisted in position Monday and it is ex pected to have the great time piece in running order by the beginning of next week. The clock is of the Seth Thomas manufacture and was presented to the church by Mr. and Mrs. L. Lopez, Sr., people who have contributed materially to the building of Biloxi and who help make the prosperity it enjoys. What is said to bo the highest price ever paid for real estate on the Missis sippi coast was paid last Saturday when H. I). Moore sold to Tippen & Tomlison a lot at Gulfport 50 feet square for $3300 cash. Mr. Moore bought the same ground last March for $19.50.

Mississippi City, Miss., Sept. 29.—The special term of Circuit Court called by Judge Neville, convened this morning and adjourned this evening. Only civil cases were to be tried, but owing to the unsettled condition of the courthouse mittjv none of the attorneys expressed a willingness to have their cases deter mine i until after something more defi nite had taken place in the county seat case, and this view the Court heard the appeal from the decision of the Board of oupervinors, affirming same, which de clared Gulfport the county seat. Attor ney for appellants will carry the matter to the Supreme Court for final action, and it is to bn hoped that the court of last resort will pass upon the case dur ing the month of O ober, so that there will exist no room for questioning or at tack ng any of the proceedings of the regular term of court, which meets in November, and at which the Grand Ju ry ir impaneled. Until the validity of the election and survey authorizing the removal of the county scat from Missis sippi City to Gulfport in verified by the Supreme Court the Hoard of Supervi sors are handicapped in the matter of building a now courthouse, and the ac tion of Judge Neville in convening his court at this time to hoar the case is gen erally endorsed, as the people are be coming tired of the uncertainty of where the county seat really is.
