As the oyster season has opened all along the Coast, the canneries are bus ily engaged in securing their help for the season. Most of this help is secured in Balti more, and at present Mr. James V. Dunbar and a representative of the Peerless Packing Company of this place are there making arrangements along with the Mcllhennies, Merricks, Uu kates and others for the transportation of four thousand or more Bohemians and Poles to this and other oystering points. The laborers are guaranteed their transportation, lodging, food and wages from the time they leave Baltimore to their return there, and yet, after the laborers are secured by the runners, the problem is to hold them, for they are very fickle and the last man gets the goods. Formerly Baltimore canned ninety per cent of all the oysters of the country, but in the last few years all of this in dustry has been taken south, and virtu ally no canning, except that of vegeta bles, is carried on in Baltimore.

The editor and his wife took a horse back ride through Waveland during the week and noted with pleasure the im provements that were going on in that delightful little city along the beach. While the quarantine has done much to arrest the progress of the city, the people are at work in beautifying their homes, and the merchants are selling the goods to those who remain over for the summer. Garvey & Michel’s store report that they have done as good a business as could be expected for the stringent times, and Capt, Dill and Mayor Bour geois and others, interviewed, report that business has been fairly good, con sidering the quarantine regulations. There is a movement on foot in Wave land to convert the old Ullraan Woolen Factory, which has recently changed hands, into a vegetable canning fac tory, and a company is to be formed to plant the circumjacent land in vege tables and fruit. It is reported that the L. & N. Railroad has offered to put a switch to the building, if such plans materialize. Capt. Dill has bought the Episcopal Church building, recently used as a town hall, and has an architect at work on plans to convert the same into a resi dence for himself. Quite a beautiful part of Waveland is hidden from the general public, yet some beautiful residences nestle there, on the ayenue that parallels the railroad on the north. The town hall and the school building are being treated to anew coat of paint prior to the school assembling on next Monday. Mayor Bourgeois reported that the school was the pride of the town and that before the present session was over the city would have a neat modern school building. Bay St. Louis a Winter Resort. Persistent effort on the part of the Commercial Club is being made with the railroads of the country to have Bay St. Louis placed on tiie list of winter resorts. The chairman of the transportation company is in c rrespondence with the passenger tariff associations to that effect, and if the same can be success fully accomplished, the winter popula tion of the Bay will be more than the double of any previous year. The same committee is at work on having the Bay advertised in the litera ture sent out by the L. &. N. R, R. Descriptive legends of the various advantages of the Bay as a winter re sort, together with pictures of the va rious hotels, have been forwarded to the exploiting agent of the L. & N- asking that they be inserted in literature dis tributed. A quiet home; vines of our own plant ing; a few books full of the inspiration of genius; a few friends worthy of be ing loved and able to love us in turn; a hundred innocent pleasures that bring no pain or remorse; a devotion to the right that will never swerve; a simple religion empty of all bigotry, full of trust and hope and love —and to such a philosophy this world will give us all the joy it has.— David Swing, Russell Sage attributes his longevity to his sticking to work.

ORIGIN OF BOTH FIRES UN KNOWN-LAST NIGHT’S BLAZE STARTED IN STAEHLING’S RESIDENCE-FIREMEN DO EX CELLENT WORK, BUT ARE SLOW IN STARTING. Two fires in thirty hours, both occur ring at night and both of unknown ori gin, is a record for Boloxi worthy of in vestagation. The most disastrous of the two fires occurred last night when four dwellings and a number of sheds and outhouses ware burned on Jackson and Magnolia streets. The fire was discovered in the rear portion of the residence of Louis Staeh ling at the northwest corner of Jackson and Magnolia streets, by Mrs. [Capt.] John Lewis, who lives opposite. The fire had made headway at the time the alarm was given that Mr. Staehling and his family barely escaped with their nightclothes. Scarcely a thing was saved from the doomed building. The residence occupied by Mr. Steah ling was owned by Mrs. F. Schaub, and was insured for S3OO. Mr. Staehling’s furniture and household effects ware insured for s9oo. From the Staehling residence the fire first spread to the next building north, a cottage owned by Mrs. Schaub and occupied by Mrs. Graham. Part of the furniture and household e fleets were saved. Building insured for $(>Oo. Vincent Voivedich’s residence on Jack son street was the next to go. Some of the effects were also saved from the Voivedich residence. Mr. Voivedich carried no insurance on the building or furniture. Fire from the Staehling residence spread to the house across Magnolia street owned by Mrs. G. H. Cousins and occupied by Sam Levy and family. Mr. Levy and others, by working hard, saved nearly all of the household effects and furniture from destruction, though there was some damage by moving so suddenly. Mr. Levy’s loss is covered by a SSOO. policy, while the -raiding was insured for SISOO. In the meantime an alarm had been sounded and the fire depar.. ’-nt turned out, with Volunteer No. i’s engine and hose, in very good trim. There was a great deal of confusion as to where to attach the hose and get to work. The fire plug at the of Jackson and Magnolia street was so rusty that it refused to open and could not be forced. The fire engine was hauled around by Joe Rusk’s place and then taken back to Howard avenue, where it should have been allowed to staj in the first place. During the confusion of the fire de partment the fire burned, uninterrupt edly. When the engine was finally put to work there was not enougu water pres sure to give a strong stream. Pressure from the top tank could not be turned on. Someone said that Mr. Hass, who has been superintendent of waterworks for several months, had the key and was absent from the city on quarantine duty for the Marine Hos pital Service. The wind was blowing lightly from the northwest and the iesidence of Capt John Lewis was in groat danger from the Levy residence. At this point the firemen got down to work and did a creditable job in saving the Lewis property. There ware several trees and shrubs which protected the build ing to some extent, but it is safe to say that if the department had been longer delayed in getting a stream on the building a much more serious conflagra tion would have resulted. Mississippi Hook and Ladder Cos. No. 1 turned out very well and its ladders and buckets were made to To good ser vice in saving building a Tjacent to the fire. East End Hose Company Mo. 1 turned out with a fine body of men, got a hose into play and did splendid service. Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 also deseryes credit for the manner in which they worked when once they got started, SATURDAY NIGHT’S BLAZE The other fire occurred Saturday night at the corner of Diyison and Bohn street. The building burned was anew one recently completed by Contractor J. H. Breaux for George Webb and bad been rented to G. G. Gill, a negro tailor, but was not occupied. There is no water in that part of town and nothing could be done to check the flames, Officer Randolph discovered the blaze at about 12:,‘>0 o’clock, kicked open the doors and found that the place was un occupied. He was unable to discover the origin of the fire, This building was insure for $875 in the Swan agency.” —Biloxi Herald, Monday, Sept. 25. A recent order of the Boar 4 ol Health of the States prohibits the opening of the colleges of the State untill after the seventeenth of Oct.

ROOSEVELT. DELAY” GROWS IRRITATING-SEA LEVEL WATERWAY IS FAV ORED, BUT PRESIDENT WANTS IT OPEN AT THE EARLIEST PRACTICABLE MOMENT. President Roosevelt is urging in the strongest terms the neceasity for a plan for the constructed of the Panama canal which may be accomplished in the shor test possible time. In his recent remarks to the consulting board of engineers of the Panama canal commission he said things regardee of the utmost import ance in that concection. His remarks have just been transcribed and trans mitted to the board in Washington and General Davis, its chairman, has been authorized to make them public. The president said, among other things; ’’What I am about to say must be concidered in the light of suggestion, not as direction. I have named you because, in my judgment, you are espe cially fitted to serve as advisors in plan ning the gratest engineering work the world has yet seen, and I expect you to advise me, not what you think I want to heart, but what you think I ought to hear. ’’There are two or three consid erations which I trust you will steadily keep before your minds in coming to a concluson as to the proper type of canal. I hope that ultimately it will prove possable to build a sea leval canal —such a canal would undoudtedly bo best in the end if feasible, and I feel that one of the cheif advantages of the Panama rout is that ultimately a sea level canal will be a possibility. But while paying due heed to the ideal perfictibility of the scheme from an engineering stand point, remember the need of having a plan which shall provide for the immed iate building of a canal on the safest terms and in the shortest possible time. If to build a sea level canal will but slightly increase the risk, then, of cause, it is preferable, ’’But tf to adopt the plan of a 'sea level means to incur hazard and brings on delay, then it is not preferable. If the advantages and disadvantages are clos ely balance I expect you to say so. I de sire also to know \yhetber fl you recom mend a high laol multi-lock canal, it will be possible after it is completed to turn it into or substitute for it in time a sea level canal without interrupting the traffic upon it. Two of tbe prime consid erations to be kept steadily in ra*nd are: ”1. The utmost practicable speed of construction. ”2. Practical certainty that the plan proposed will be feasible and that it can be carried out with the menimum risk, ’’The quantity of work and the amount of work should be minimized so far as possible. ’’The delay in transit of the vessels owing to additional locks will be of small consequence when compared with short ning the time for the construction of the canal or diminishing the risk in its construction. In short I desire your best judgment on all the various questions to considered in choosing among the var ious plans for a comparatively high multi-lock canal for a lower level with fewer locks and for a sea level canal. ’’Finally, I urge upon you the neces sity of as great expedition in coming to a decision as Is compatible with thor oughnees in considering the constru cton.”—’’Poplarville Free Press. TE;N YEARS IN JAIL. For Having Harried and Lived Witn Negro—Magnolia, Hiss., Judge In flicts a Severe Punishment Upon a White Woman. Jackson, Miss., Sept, 28. —A special from Magnolia, Pike county, says Bes sie Perkins, a white woman, was sen tenced today to ten years in the peni tentiary for marrying and living with a negro named Robert Brown. Judge Wilkinson, in passing sentence, re gretted that he could not make the punishment heavier. The woman declared that she did not know Brown was a negro. Brown es caped to parts unknown. Civic Improvement, Prof. A. Allison, of this place, has left a good suggestion in the way of town decoration for the coming spring. He suggests that some philanthropic gentleman offer a prize of twenty dol lars or more in gold, or a handsome gold medal to the housewife that on the first of June has the best floral display of annuals in her front yard, He suggests that the government, through its agri cultural department, wall furnish the seeds, or they can, at any rate, be bought for a very small amount. Prof. AUison has distinguished him self along the lines suggested in botany and has collected over twelve hundred of the native wild plants of Mississippi. He has also collected and arranged over one hundred and fifty of the native wild birds or Mississippi.

LOUIS “LOOKING BACKWARDS.” WHAT TOOK PLACE HERE TEN YEARS BACK INCIDENTS OF A NEWSY NATURE THAT WILL BE READ WITH INTEREST. Ten years ago this week: Mr. A. Buchel, spending the summer with his family at the Tudury cottage, in Main street, contracted with S. S. Givens for the erection of a two story dwelling in Carral Avenue, work to begin January Ith. Mr. and Mrs. M. E. Meeks entertained at a literary and musical evening, ben efit of the building fund of the Main street Metherdist Church. Mises Ansly. Meek. Kackny. Henderson. Hart, and Messis. Henderson. Jr. and L. Ansly. participated. Tahe Municipal Campaigan was ’’alredy assuming interesting proportions.,, The Qulf Coast Traction Company. Since the meeting of the Gulf Trac tion Company a few days ago at Sisters ville West Virginia, much speculation has been indulged in on the part of some of our citizens as the ultimate terminal of said system. Taking into consideration all of the movements made by the company from the initiative, the character and per sonel of the men who compose the Board and Stockholders it will be fool ish to suppose that the men who are behind the scheme intend the Trolly system to be so local as to st?rt at Bil oxi and to end at Pass Christian. In the first place the capital stock being placed as high as it is, and then the additinal bond Issue of a million dollars, and the absorption of the two sys tems of street railway of Biloxi and Gulf port would indicate that the railway would seek a larger terminal than either Biloxi or Pass Christian. When in the office of Mr. F. D. Gatchell during the early part of the project, ere the Presi - dent had driven the first spike inaugu rating the scheme it wae learned that quite a number of forty-foot cars for passengers had been ordered similar to those used on the belt systems in the city, and that a fifteen minute schedule would be inaugurated and a cheap interurban fare wauld be given, It was also ascertained from the plans that a powerhouse big enough to operate between Mobile and New Orleans was to be constructed for this traction company and enough rails to more than complete the system as projected. There seems to be some opposition to the construction of this trolly system so far as the towns are concerned through which it will pass, and the great stress is laid on the fact that the railway will mar the beauty of the front in places, but the inestimable good that will accure to the citizens of the various cities will more than counterbalance the evil.
