flagrant violation of the now "Jim i aw in the city of Now Orleans by R.. -( ). Railways Company is causing Kwe-spread comment in that city, but KTsction. The latter is to be deplored. K e car company, with its eighty mil- R dollars of watered stock, has fail- Rj t 0 provide in time its cars with the screens, and instead, contrary R, hoi: ,w, has substituted the wire par- Euons with a rope—a mere flimsy pre- K Jt :1 [ olicying (?) the law. Another Ks c |[ of the street railways trust is the of disfavor of the law in that Kenner hy which each car sets aside a Kellis amount of scats for colored pa- Rl— ;,iid rre.Sling dissatisfaction among ■Uir white patrons causing them to stand ■rhea the cars are crowded. H figures newly compiled in the Audi ■iof' office show that the privilege license Lgid by the saloons in the State for the Bjscai year ended Oct. 1 will amount to ■•1,0,400. The corresponding figures for ■ the preceding year were $119,900, and ■ there is decrease of $9600 in the receipts ■ from this source. Inasmuch as the pri ■ filcge license of saloons k range in cost ■from SB9O to SI2OO per annum, according ■ tolocation, it is a conservative estimate ■ that the decrease in receipts represents ■ the closing of at least ton saloons over ■ the Suite.

Noth- I ing can tie done for him, and to make I the news more sad it is given out that he I has only a month to live. His return I home was at his own request that ho I might die in the midst of the people ho I loves and they who revere and esteem I him in the deepest sense. None who I know Bishop Thompson will not learn I of the affliction that has befallen him I and his approaching end but with heavy I hearts and tear-dimmed eyes. I The State Board of Health, through I the member from the Sixth Congres- I sional District, has employed an attor- I ney and proposes to vigorously prose- I cute any and all violators of the Medi- I cal Practice Act, and to that end is en- I listing the aid of ail legally qualified I practitioners in this District in an en deavor to secure information against such offenders and to put a stop to what is becoming a real menace to communi ties unfortunate enough to have such parties in their midst. Dunbar Rowland, director of the de partment of archives and history of this State is collecting data relative to the historical battle flags of Mississippi, It is known that six flags have waved over Mississippi as emblems of authority, re presenting as many governments and Mr. Rowland requests that all informa tion concerning flags of any description be forwarded to the department. It is an important work, and the department ought to be successful in its effort. “Uncle Johnnie” McGinnis,of Laurel, is now 92 years of age. He is hale and hearty and says he waited upon Glad- Monewhen tnat great British statesman, as a young man, visited Lord Woolesley. He also saw Queen Victoria when she made her first visit to Ireland.

The Biloxi Herald is waging a just war on the editorial pirates of the State, and jumps with both feet on some of its exchanges for appropriating without due credit its own products. About the best way to even up things would be to lift bodily the matter from the exchanges in question, but then the Herald might be using what was originally the pro duct of some honest man.

M, Keen Thinks Railroad Re* sponsible for Cold Contracted by His Wife While Traveling. Anew avenue of damage suit litiga tion has been opened by Rev. F. M. Keen a well-known Methodist preacherof this State, former chaplain of the Fist Mis sisippi regiment during the Spanish- American war, and who is now residing at Boonville, Ark. Mr. Keen has filed, in the name of his wife, a suit against the Illinois Central road for damages in the sum of $20,000, and he sets forth as his ground of com plaint that in November' last year Mrs. Keen left Jackson to go to Memphis, in tending to join her husband at Boonville. The declaration alleges that the coach in which she traveled was not properly heated, and as a consequence she con tracted a severe cold which later develop ed into a disease from which she cannot recover. The suit is of peculiar interest on ac count of the fact that anew question is involved, and the courts will be called upon to decide whether railroads are re sponsible for the colds contracted by their patrons, and also what degree of heat is necessary in a car to prevent its occupants from contracting colds, or their forms of disease.

A Timely and Klghteou# Appeal to the Chief Executive of the State Concerning the Oyster Situation- Matter Plainly Set Forth and Should Bear Fruit. The committees at Biloxi representing the City Council and the citizens meet ing recently held in that city, the reso lutions adopted at both meetings pub lished elsewhere in this issue of The Echo, have forwarded the following let ter to Governor Longino concerning the oyster situation. I) Biloxi, Miss., November 5, 1902. To His Excellency, A. H. Longino, Oov ernorof Mississippi. Sir—We have the pleasure to transmit to you, herewith, a certified copy of a resolution passed by the mayor and hoard of aldermen of the city of Biloxi at their regular November meeting hold in the eily hall on yesterday, the 4th inst. In transmitting this resolution, wo doslre to call your attention with the subject mat ter thereof, to-wit: Ist—The territory in which a suit ha H been filed in the supreme court of the United Stales by the State of Mississip pi, has been under the control 'of the State of Mississippi, as we are informed and believe,’for so long a time that the memory of this section runneth not to the contrary. 2d—lt is our opinion that the Slate of Mississippi owns the territory in contro versy; and we believe that, oven if there is a doubt as to whether said territory belongs to Mississippi or Louisiana, Mississippi and Mississippians have as much right therein as Louisiana and Louisianians during the pending suit in the United States supreme court over the boundary lines between the States of ississippi ami Louisiana. 3d—The oyster reefs within said terri tory have been a source of benefit, reve nue, and profit to Mississippi and the citizens thereof. 4th —The State of Louisiana whether under and by virtue of any law of that State or not,has invaded the said disput ed territory and is petroling the same with an armed force, for the puspose of preventing Mississippi oystermen from catching oysters upon the oyster reefs within said territory. sth—This acting upon the part of the State of Louisiana, or its authorities, is working very prejudice! to the interests of the State of Mississippi and its citi zens; and, as a result thereof, a large number of the citizens of Mississippi, towit, —about a hundred—owning oyster boats to the value of about one hundred thousand dollars, have gone and are go ing into the State of Louisiana, and have there taken out and are taking out li censes, in order to evade arrest by the authorities of Louisiana for catching oysters upon the oyster reefs within said disputed territory. nth —The law passed by the last Legis lature of the State of Louisiana, as your excellency will remember, forbids ' any oysters caught withlh the boundaries of Louisiana to bo brought into the boun daries of Mississippi for any purpose whatever. 7th- It is our opinion that it is the duty of the executive of the State of Mississippi to see that the law is enforced to the extent that the rights of Mississippi and Mississippians in said disputed terri tory are fully protected. In view of the foregoing matters, and in behalf of the mayor and hoard of al dermen of the city of Biloxi and the ci tizens of the entire coast sections, we would respectfully and earnest ly request and urge that your excellency come to the coast for the purpose of fully in vestigating and becoming acquainted with the situation and it is to the end that the rights of Mississippi and Mis sissippians to the territory in contro versy may be accorded the protection that justice demands. Trusting that your excellency may sec fit to grant the request herein made, and assuring you of our hearty co-operation in every way possible in this matter, we beg to remain, Very respectfully yours, K.
