Bar tin Tin Kind You Haw Always BwgM Friends of Merchant W. L. Bourgeois will gladly leam his condition grows en couraging from day to day, and the family physician soon expects to see him up and out again, mingling with bis business and social associates. nnmn u The Official Jouraal an or bat t. mm ite Sea Coast Celt* It is not surprising that the handful of New Orleans people who make Pass Christian their camping ground during the heated term would dare sacrifice the stability and future of the Pass as a self supporting community since tney are not dependent upon the prosperity of the town for individual success upon which depends their means of liveli hood. The history of every seacoast town for the past fifty years or more has shown that solely as a summer resort these communities have not moved one step forward, but if anything fell the victim of retrogression, Mississippi City standing as a shining example. But show us where a Coast town has en couraged and built manufacturing in dustries, broadened agricultural pur suits to a higher commercial basis, es tablished vast mercantile enterprises, banking and other institutions, corpora tions for the development of the timber and kindred resources of the territory, etc., and not catered particularly to the festive summer resorter, and we will show you a town that is heading in the right direction. Pascagoula, Biloxi, Gulfport and Bay St. Louis support this argument. We congratulate the Board of Mayor and Aldermen of Pass Chris tian upon its correct stand and the firm ness thereof, and we have nothing but bitter contempt for the official who fawns to this migratory colony of alienists, and opposes a progressive measure appre hensive that should he favor it his New Orleans patrons would neither buy ice or groceries from him during the season. Such an official should have some con sideration for others and return the com mission he holds to the constituency which has so unfortunately been de ceived. While it is not the present intention of the incorporators of the Gulf Coast Electric Railway to run their line to Bay St. Louis for the present, it is the unanimous wish of this city to have the line come here, and the hope is cher ished by those wno wish to see material prosperity after the line will be in run ning order from Biloxi to Pass Christ ian, Gapt. Jones and his associates will turn further westward and cross the bay to Bay St. Louis. If this line should fail to reach here, the day is not far dis tant, it can safely be said, when this place, like Biloxi and Scranton have already done, will build and own its own electric road. The subject has fre quently been discussed and agitated, and with Bay St. Louis gradually build ing out and spreading to metropolitan proportions the day of thts realization is not far distant. Due to the happy fact that the City of Bay St. Louis has as capable a set of of ficials as ever known in history, makes it doubly useless at this early day to en tertain talk for the next campaign, which is over a year off. The truth of the mat ter with the city in so healthy a financial condition today as it never was before, and the satisfactory conditions of things in general, there is room for little or no change—none, anyway, at so early a day. Then why divert the pub lic mind from the material prosperity which is pervading every nook of the city at present to political, idle talk for next year? It is entirely too early for the crop of candidates to blossom forth. Get to work and quit talking politics, gentlemen. At the regular monthly meeting of the board of supervisors this week Member Louis S. Bourgeois, representing the Bay St. Louis district, made a very wise and timely suggestion, and one which, if urged at the next meeting, we feel sure will be adopted. Mr. Bourgeois wants the county to repaint its capitol, and thinks it should be done as early as practicable. The building, an attractive one, is presenting a very shabby appear ance for the want of the touch of the brush, and, exposed to the weather, the inroads of time are leaving their impress of decay in a most perceptible manner. Paint on the courthouse is a necessity,, not only as a matter of pride, but one that is self-appealing from a standpoint of economy. Wagon loads, thousands of barrels of oyster shells go through Bay St. Louis along Front street daily to Waveland, where the officials of that progressive town are spreading them upon the streets. The hauling is over a long way, and expensive, too, but the problem of cheaper transportation does not seem to present itself. Yet the expense is not without a redeeming feature, the hauling, carried only by home people, is a medium through which the tax money reverts back to them. The cost of haul ing is 7 cents per barrel, and the cost of shells 3 cents, a total of 10 cents per barrel. The Echo last week complimented both banks upon the splendid showing made by these institutions of the city. There is another financial statement we wish to make complimentary reference to and which is another reflex of this city’s prosperity and fiinancial solidity, and that is the statement of the city of Bay St. Louis, as shown in another column, against wnich there are no outstanding warrants, no debts and a SIOOO city hall site standing to its credit. We venture the assertion that no Coast town can compare with this. FREE tuition to all in Harris’ Busi ness College, Jackson, Miss. tf BAY SAINT LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 1905. RETURN OF PRISONERS FRO* HARRISON COUNTY. Where Since New Year’s the Inmates of Hancock County’s Bastile Have Been Boarding, and From Barred Windows Watching Gulfport Grow. On Wednesday morning Sheriff J. E. Saucier, accompanied by Deputy Sheriff Albert J. Carver, and Placide Saucier, son of the sheriff, left for Gulfport, the county seat of Harrison, to return that evening and bring back the prisoners of Hancock county, who have been in the county jail at Gulfport since the 2nd of January, of the present year, waiting for the remodeling and completion of the Hancock county jail. The prisoners were six in number, all colored, one female and five males, and the transfer from one county to another was made safely and without jar or hitch, so to speak; and while Sheriff Saucier anticipated no trouble whatever, it was with much satisfaction that he saw the “gang” safely placed behind the bars at home and the great key turned the way that locks. The prisoners were Richard Peters, charged with murder; Will Love, charged with murder; James Duncan, convicted of murder and sentenced for life, waiting for the opinion of Supreme Court; Charles Smith, burglary; Wil liam Wallace, convicted of murder and sentenced for life, case also appealed to Supreme Court; and Gladys Jenkins, murder. The 'woman last named is a young girl-mother, who is charged with the murder of her infant found buried in a grocery box, in the rear of the Pollatr sek residence, Bay St. Louis, last fall. The mother of Gladys Jenkins is also charged with the crime, but, escaping at the time the discovery was made, has not been apprehended as yet. Harrison county made no charge for the lodging and safekeeping of Hancock county’s prisoners, only charging fo r board at the rate of SI.BO per day for all six, or 30 cents a day each, the standard Mississippi rate which Hancock county pays at home. The prisoners said that at Gulfport they were as well treated as here, and the Harrison county jail keeper and other officials are aboT>e reproach, and, while it was not a matter of choice, they expressed themselves as highly satisfied with the treatment that had been ac corded them “away from home and mother”. The new Hancock county jail is comfortable, constructed along the most rigid principles of safety, and equipped with all modern conveniences that the great jail building company, the Paulay Cos., of St. Louis, could con trive. A new r feature is the incinerat ing plant for all refuse from the water closets. The jail is secure and up to date. PAY YOUR PRIVILEGE TAXES. Merchants and business people gener ally are reminded tnat all privilege licenses, except those issued to railroads and retail liquor dealers, expire during the month of April, and unless they are renewed during the month of May the law makes it the duty of the tax collector to collect double the amount of the original tax, leaving him no discre tion in the matter. It was even cool enough Wednesday to dampen the ardor of the base ballist, but this was temporary only. Spring is here, so are the spring styles in Millinery at O. Sange’s.

Sold in Bay St. Louis by GARDE BLED’S DRUG STORE, and all lead ing druggists. | One of the most amusing incidents of the electric road meeting here Tuesday night was on Commodore Larry O’Don nell. The commodore was endeavoring ! to dissect the ordinance- granting the electric road people the right to use the Front street in the most genteel man ner. He labored hard in his elegant ■ style to show the ordinance was defec tive and many of its clauses very objec tionable, and was just hashing what he thought was the ordinance, when Aider man A. S. McDonald arose and asked tne speaker “if he had ever read the | ordinance?” to which the commodore candidly replied that he had not, and the laugh was on Larry.—Pass Christ ian Beacon. HRS. E. h. FAIRCHILD. Death of a Noble Woman After a Long and Lovely Life. N. O. Picayune. After a life of singular sweetness aad devotion as a daughter, wife, mother and grandmother, Mrs. E. H. Fairchild passed quietly away early Wednesday morning Her departing was as the go ing into a deep sleep. For eighty-four years she had done her part in the world, helping others when she could, and so when the time came to die there was no struggling, no pain or suffering. Her death was as quiet and peaceful as her life. It is the quiet, earnest life, rather than the disturbed and turbulent exist ence, that operates as a lesson for good to struggling human beings. Mrs. Fair child’s life was in conformity to the definition of a] good woman given long years ago by a wise Grecian statesman and philosopher—she was not known outside of her own house and circle of friends, but within this sphere she was everything that a woman could be— a potent influence for good. She was powerful in affection and great in kind ness, a eulogy that cannot always be pronounced upon the great ones of the world when they pass away. Because Mrs. Fairchild’s life wsa sim ple and beautiful in its devotion to duty, death came not as a terror, but as a ben ediction. In the early morning hours she passed imperceptibly from the nor mal to the last slumber of all, leaving a memory that will be a consolation in the days to come to those who are now grief stricken. Mrs. Fairchild was the widow of the late E. H. Fairchild, of the firm of Fair child & Bingham, who v:c at one time one of the largest commission houses in New Orleans. She was Miss Mary Har rington, and was born in Princeton, Ind., her parents moving here in 1845). Louis H. Fairchild, the prominent cotton broker, is the only surviving child of Mrs. Fairchild, but a number of grandchildren survive her. These are the children of L. H. Fairchild, as fol lows; Mrs. Frank T. Howard, Mrs. S. J. White, Misses Mary, Marguerite and Hazel and Edmund. The funeral took place Wednesday afternoon from the residence of her son, St. Charles and Lee Circle, Dr. Bever ley E. Warner officiating, “WON’T TECH ’EM.” A queer instance of negro superstition has been brought to light oyer on Par ish street at the site where the Jackson Benevolent Hall was burned to the ground last October. Just adjoining the main structure was an undertaking establishment owned by a company of negroes. The building was almost destroyed, but some of the stock escaped total destruction, among other articles being a large number of coffins which were badly charred, but not wholly destroyed. The average negro is an inveterate hunter for firewood, and will resort to almost any means to get fuel without buying it, but that pile of half-burned coffins, although it has been of easy ac cess for six months, has not been mo lested; and not a negro in the ward could be persuaded under any circum | stances to use them for iuel. i Several efforts have been made to get I. . . i negroes living in the vicinity to carry away the burned coffins, but in every i instance they refuse to touch them. Even during the coldest weather of the winter, when fire wood was mighty scarce in the fourth ward, not a splinter of those “wooden oyercoats” was car ried away. Jack Williams tried to get * an old black mammy who has been an object of charity for several years to carry them away, but she declared, “Fo Gawd, boss, dis niggah would freeze ter death ’fore she’d tech dem things.”— Jackson News. - “Most men labor and worry as if the whole scheme and object of life was to I live and work and make a dollar. The Creator evidently gave man life thas he \ might enjoy it, and when you fail to en joy it, you neglect a very blessed privi lege. Don’t become an automatic work i ing machine, but take time to live and 1 enjoy life. Drink in the sunshine, go I fishing, see the ball game, play with your babies, smile at your wife once in a while, be social with your neighbor and see if you don’t feel better.” OA,&TOdaiA..

Gulfport News: One of the biggest things that ever struck Gulfport will begin at the begin ning on the Ist of July and last for fif teen days. We mean the Chautauqua* including the regatta, which will take place on the 4£h. G. M. Edgar has come to J. H. Bouslog, the industrial and immigration agent of the Gulf and Ship Island road, with a letter of intro duction from Prof. Trawick, principal of the public schools at Bay St. Louis, formerly of Crystal Springs, who was the originator and used his influence to develop to such great success the Crys tal Springs Chautauqua. Mr. Edgar has been selected as business agent and forerunner for the Gulfport Chau tauqua and will give his undivided atten tion from now to July the Ist, when the session of the Chautauqua will begin at the end of the pier, and no pains or ex pense will be spared to make it a greater success than any similar meeting ever held in Mississippi. The entertain ments, while along similar lines of for mer Chautauqua meetings, will be va ried and on so much larger order as to make this the Chautauqua of the South. Wendling, Governor Bob Taylor, Capt. Pearson Hobson and other emi nent talent, both of this country and of Europe, as well as some of the rarest musical combinations, have positively been engaged, and negotiations are now pending for others of the rarest talent and ability with the prospect of securing them. It is Prof. Trawick’s intention and ambition to make this occasion a distin guished feature of this young metropo lis, so as to make it permanent. The Gulf and Ship Island road has manifested a deep interest in the meet ing, and its management is doing every thing possible to help to make a com plete success of the meeting. Thous ands of people will visit the city during the time the meeting is in session and doubtless will be well entertained by our citizens.

The following extract on good humor is clipped from the Sioux City, lowa, Journal, and the wisdom contained therein could be heeded by everyone, with profit to themselves; “A thing always to be cultivated is good humor. No prop to trouble has yet been discovered the equal in strength of good nature. It is just as much an obligation of men to fight against de pression as it is to say they will die be fore they will submit to oppression. They begin at the wrong place with their heroics. Good humor is the safety valve- It provides a way for unneces sary and harmful steam, which, con fined, may result in a ruinous explosion. Good humor dwells in the house of com fort ; it waters the plants, feeds the ca nary, draws the curtains to admit the sunlight, and at evening time it lights the lamp. “ADVERTISED LETTERS.” Letters in the Bay St. Louis Post Office for the week ending, Apr. 2,1905, will be sent to the Dead Letter Office, if not called for in 15 days.

Fourteentii Year, No. 11 STAND UP FOR YOUR TOWN. Some Sensible Advice To Citizen* and Business Men. The following good and timely advice on how to build up your own town is taken from the Rice Belt Journal, pub lished in Louisiana: It is not the site of a town, but its character that makes it a desirable place to live in. A live, prosperous town is a desirable one, and a town may live and prosper, and yet be small. Every citi zen in a town should be interested in its prosperity. One of the ways to help a town is to speak well of it. It is true patriotism to stand by your own town and interests as well. Another way to help your town is to do all you can to beautiry it. Beautify your own property all you can, then do all you can to beautify your streets. Be friendly with everybody and courteous to strangers. Your civility will help to make good impressions and will be car ried away and cherished. Never forget you are a part of the town and that your own deportment helps to make up the strangers’ estimation of the place. Sell all you can and buy all you can at homo. Every dollar that is sent or cairicd away from home makes it that much poorer. If you have the means, invest in some thing that will give others employment. Do not kick at a proposed improvement simply because it is not at your door. A town that is always improving is always spreading itself out. If a rich man starts a project, encourage him. Don’t be afraid to thrust your hand in your pocket and help a public enter prise. More towns hare been ruined by such refusals than other ways. The citizens of any prosperous town are always public-spirited and united. Stand together, work together for the interests of the whole town. Always stand ready to do your part. Don’t grumble and spend your time in prophesying failures, but help to make every enterprise a success, be it great or small. Be energetic and enterprising, and your example will be imitated.
