Tolcdano and family are ar ranging to move to New’ Orleans, their former home, on or about the 15th inst. Mr. Toledano will still retain his active interest in the Bordeaux Canning Com pany. Mrs. Geo. R. Rea loft Tuesday even ing for Wesson, Miss., on a visit of sev eral days to relatives, accompanied by Mr. F. M. Rembert, who had been the guest of his relatives, Mr. and Mrs. Rea, for some time. Mr. and Mrs. Delphine Desdunes left Sunday night for their future home in New Orleans, after a stay here of sever al months, during which time they were domiciled at the Mclnerny Cottage in Carroll avenue. S. L. Cowand made one of his peri odical visits to Biloxi Sunday. Our young friend is of the firm opinion that Biloxi is the only place to spend Sunday and Bay St. Louis the only place for the other six days of the week. Major Louis Trager has returned from a brief visit to relatives in New Tork city, and, before returning to his plan tation at Fort Adams, Miss., will spend a month in Bay St. Louis to recuperate from the effects of a very severe case of la grippe, which he contracted some two months ago. The Major is well-known here and highly esteemed and has many friends to enjoy the satisfaction that the knowledge affords of knowing that Bay St. Louis will quickly return to him his farmer vigorous health. Recently the Bay St. Louis High School boys went over to Biloxi and de feated the High School boys of that city. Last Saturday the Biloxi boys were our guests end came with the fixed purpose of regaining their lost laurels, but they seemed to be reckoning with out their host, for our boys again beat them, the score being 2to 8. The Her ald of Monday says: “The Biloxi boys Epeak highly of the royal treatment they received at the hands of the Bay St. Louis team. They will play another game in Biloxi on May 15, at which time the Biloxi boys expect to regain tbeir lost laurels/* , The Board of Mayor and Aldermen will meet in regular session today, at which time we understand Alderman Evans will tender nis resignation. The move is prompted by the fact that Mr. Evans’ sole attention is demanded by his private business, and, realizing th* importance of an official position of this kind, requiring time and effort, he pre fers to relinquish the honor rather than do the trust an injustice. It has long been recognized that he has made a splendid official, a model that his suc cessor, whoever he might be, can well pattern, and his resignation will prove a distinct loss to the administrative body of the City of Bay St. Loui*. It appears to be a foregone conclusion that the next regular session of the Mis sissippi Legislature will be called upon to merge the "Waveland municipality in to that of Bay St. Louis, and declaring Waveland a thing of the past. This would give Bay St. Louis a population of oyer 6,000 and the largest area ofter-, ritory of any city on the Gulf Coast. It appears that the desire to consolidate is mutual; that the results would prove beneficial to both places, meaning more funds for Bay St. Louis and more im provements for Waveland, electric lights among the number. The proposed change is pretty certain, to the extent that it might be termed “cut and dried.” Tax-Assessor F. C. Bordage suffered a considerable loss a few nights ago, when a number of roaming cows broke in through the front fence of bis resi dence and destroyed one of the finest lot of young fig trees to be seen. The rav age of the pest that infests the busy streets and beautiful avenues of our city caused Mr. Bordage to sustain damages in the sum of no less than SIOO.OO, and someone should be responsible for it, either the owners of the cattle or the city for its dereliction in enforcing its stock ordinance. Sheriff J. E. Saucier is receiving cash subscriptions for the widow and chil dren of Sheriff J. M. Poag, who was killed by a mob at Senatobia recently while protecting a prisoner. He has already forwarded oyer $12.00 and hopes to send more in the near future. His effort in this matter is indeed commend able, and Hancock, like the other seventy - five counties in the State, should contribute liberally to the widow and orphans of the Mississippi hero who died a martyr at Irs post of duty. The Central Hotel, at Pearlington, was sold Monday at a u ? and was bought in by Mrs. Jennie Maffe, widow of its former owner, Max Maffe. The purchase price was $1,4*L.90, to satisfy a certain indebtedness of $1,350, with interest and costs added. At the same time and place the property of Peter Benoit, officially known as lot 304, in Second ward, was sold to Mrs'. Bertha R. Engmau for $540.00, the amount for which the sale was made to satisfy. The Board of Supervisors, at its regu lar monthly session held, this week, re ceived and filed the appointment of Dr. O. A. Johnston, of Picayune, as health officer for Hancock county, at a salary of $l5O per annum, payable semi-annu ally, beginning from May 1,1905. The appointment was made by Governor Vardanian recently. The subject of painting the county courthouse in this city, introduced by Supervisor L, S. Bourgeois at the last meeting of the board, was again brought up at the session of that body held tnis week, and the decision was reached to [.order the improvement made at the next session, when circuit court will have convened and adjourned. Bernice V. Hart left Sunday night for Morgan City, La,, where ho has taken a position with Gray & Son, pub lishers of Rural Topics. The many friends of the young man will learn with much pleasure that he has entirely re covered from his long illness and is able once more to take up the active duties of life. We regret to learn that Dr. J. L. Fountain and his estimable family will not move to Bay St. Louis as contem plated. The doctor has moved from Pearlington to Logtown, at which place and surrounding territory his practice has grotvn to such an extent as to make it impossible for him to get away. Rev. Father Alois Van Waesberghe and Rev. Father Voyer left Monday for Natchez, 'where they are spending the week in retreat with the priests of the di ocese, and during his absence Rev. Fa ther Prendergast is attending to the Bay St. Louis spiritual needs. The “chausette social” at Firemen’s Hall Tuesday evening for the benefit of the Methodist church parsonage was well attended and proved an all-round success. It is expected, when all re turns will have been made and expenses settled, the amount realized will be about $75.00. Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Hannon, of Ncv, r Orleans, s-. ent We Tuesday here, super intending the shipping, of a carload of household effects from their former home, on the front road. People are beginning to appreciate a home Furniture Installment House and the Coast Furniture and Supply Cos. fills the bill. Call and see what we have to offer. Mrs. Joseph Combel, of Biloxi, is spending a few’ days in this city on a visit to the friends oi her former home and is guest of Mrs. L. N. Word. Dr, H. Weston, -,of Logtown, has moved to Bay St. Louis, and wo gladly welcome this splendid young man to , our progressive city, ® f THREE CRYING NEEDS I I FOR BAY ST. LOUIS. I •' I $ 100,000 TOURISTS HOTEL •- s >O,OOO BOX, DOOR, BLIND | | AND SASH FACTORY I AN ELECTRIC STREET | % RAILWAY | Those are the “Big Three.” * 1 Unlike the truck farmers of Bay St. Louis, who have made quite a success of the industry this year, those at Biloxi have made what would appear to be a dismal failure. The Herald says: “Many of the Biloxi truckgrowers are sadly disappointed. Their first crop has turned out a failure. The four car loads of radishes shipped from here within the past two weeks did not pay expenses. On one of the oars S5 will have to be paid by the association, as the truck did not sell for enough to pay expenses. In a few days the truckers will have a full meeting and decide what further they will do. Mr. Lund still has confidence in the business, and only a few of the faint-hearted will give up.” It affords The Echo much pleasure to call the attention of its readers to the professional card of Dr. J. A. Evans, dentist, which appears in another col lumn of this issue. He is a Mississip pian, bom and reared at Ellisville, a graduate of the New Orleans College of Dentistry, and intends to make Bay St. Louis his permanent home. His office hours are from 8 o’clock a. m. to 5:30 o’clock p. m., and is located in the Planehet Building. He is a young man, proficient in his profession, deserving of a wide patronage, and we welcome him as an acquisition to growing Bay St. Louis. The advertisement of the Aurora gas generator appears in another column of this week’s Echo. B. F. Markey,of this city, is agent and will give any and all information desired on the subject. The Aurora is a splendid machine, and the 1 large number which Mr. Markey has sold and installed in Bay St. Louis and Pass Christian and the satisfaction given, is about the best testimonial and recommendation that can be suggested in its fayor. The light is used for both business and private lighting and is claimed to be not only the best, but the cheapest. The oyster canning season at the Peerless Co.’s plant is drawing to a close, and on Wednesday the company will return its imported shuckers back to Baltimore, a part of the contract to get the laborers being to pay their transportation both ways. The laborers not employed as shuckers, but on the reefs or otherwise! about the factory, pay their own transportation, Peerless Company has had quite a suc cessful season and will reopen early in the fall and expect to handle a heavy business. Mrs. Adam Lorch, the new owner of “Bay View Villa”, was here from New Orleans during 1 the week. The property has been given an entire new roof, and various other repairs will be made about the place. G. G. Gardebled has the contract, and it is very probable Mrs. Lorch will have the cottage on the north •ide of “Bay View” moved around to front Carroll avenue. Sara Loicana left during the week for Pittsburg, Pa., in the interest of the Truckers’ Association of Bay St. Louis, of which he is secretary-treasurer. The Association members are ot the opinion that the returns from their shipments have not been what they should, and Mr. Loicano has gone to the scene of the market incognito, to give the matter an investigation. W. L. Bourgeois, the wide-awake and | progressive grocer on the corner of Front and Main streets, has a professional demonstrator at his place of business this weeek showing the various uses possible and deliciousness of “Carnation” brand of canned cream, and crowds are at tracted throughout the day, all pro nouncing the product excellent. Mr. Franz Jacobs, owner of valuable lands productive of rubber, in Hondu ras, left for the]seene of his holdings this week, but upon reaching New Orleans was advised by a reputable physician and by friends not to venture out dur ing the fever and rainy season. He an ticipates taking the trip about the month of September. Real Estate Agent Richard Mendes informs The Echo that there is not a piece of property available for sale on the entire water front of the city, unless at a prohibitive price. He has several clients, but cannot supply their wants. 1 What does this mean ? About two years ago nearly every other house on Front street was for sale. Many friends will this evening wit ness the marriage of Miss Rita Tudury to Mr. Julian Perre, at the Church of Our Lady of the Gulf. There will be a reception at the residence of the bride’s parents, after which the young couple will take possession of their charming little home in Carroll avenue. Governor Vardaman has appointed Hon. E. J. Bowers, of Bay St. Louis, a delegate to represent Mississippi at the Southern Industrial Parliament at Washington, D. C. Bobinet Bars, Window Shades, Mat tings, Carpets, Bicycles, Baby Carnages at the Coast ;Furoituro and Supply Cos., THE COAST ELECTRIC LINE. The other day the writer had a talk with one of the representatives of the coast electric railway line, and when he j was asked what progress, if any, the j company was making, he stated that it was making as fine progress as it could | expect, the survey being made and other necessary arrangements being perfected for the early construction of the line. ! In regard to the fight that is being waged by some of the property owners j of Pass Christian he stated that it was j not in the least bothering the company, as the line would be constructed regard- i less of any opposition. In regard to passing along the shell road he stated that it was the intention of the company not to touch the driveway where it could be avoided, constructing the line on one side of it, but even where the line should be constructed on the driveway, there would be no inconvenience to vehicles, as the rails would be on the surface with the earth, as the case is in all cities, and therefore the driveway would not be in terfered with. But in all the conversa tion he gave the writer to understand that the road would be constructed as soon as the material could be put on the ground and the labor could be ob tained.—Gulfport News. County Superintendent of Education W. W. Stockstill left on Thursday for Jackson, to attend the annual conven tion of the State Teachers’ Association, before which body he will deliver an important paper relative to the subject of education.
