VARDAMAN CALLS ON OFFICERS TO ENFORCE LAW AGAINST VAGRANTS.—THE GOVERNOR OF MISSISSIPPI SAYS TRIFLING, LOAFING NE GROES SHOULD BE MADE TO WORK. Governor Vardaman has issued the following note of warning: “To the Law Officers, Conservators of the Peace of Mississippi:—The recent race troubles in Atlanta, Ga., is another painful reminder of the menace which the tnfiing, leafing negroes about cities and towns of this State are to the peace and purity of our homes and the good order of society. To avoid the possi bility of such an occurrence in Missis sippi, I have thought it well to urge up on the officers of the law charged with the duty and responsibility of preserv ing order in their respective communi ties to see to a more rigid enforcement of the law punishing vagrants. At this season of the year the negroes congre gate in the towns and cities. ‘They toil not, neither do they spin,’ but undertake to live by all manner of theft, gambling and other dishonest methods, while at the same time they arc fomenting and planning for the commission of greater crimes. If the officers of the law will do their duty, every questionable char acter will be brought to justice, and the loafers will be driven from the towns in to the country, where they will be forced to work and earn a livelihood. The white cotton fields of the country afford rich opportunities for remunera tive labor for all who will work. “I realize that in the enforcement of this law there are a lot of men in the different cities and towns who lease their little houses to these criminals and get from them such rents as make the invest ment most profitable, who will do all within their power to prevent the en forcement of this law. But the pecuni ary interest of that class of white citi zens should not deter the officer from doing his duty. I regard such a one as almost as great an enemy to the good order of society as the negro criminal himself. Let the law be enforced; let these brutes in human form be driven to legitimate labor and forced to earn their livelihood in the sweat of their faces. If that be done, rape and other crimes will be less frequent, and the peril to our homes will be reduced to a mini mum, and the danger of race conflict will be removed. Every white man in Mississippi understands that, in order to make the negro behave himself, he must be held and controlled with a firm hand and made to understand that his crimi nality will not bo tolerated. 1 would not be unjust to these people, but we must, at the same time, see to it that they respect the law and behave them selves. Let the officers do their whole duty fearlessly, promptly and impar tially. JAS. K. VARDAMAN, “Governor of Mississippi.” Exciting Novel Bv Uppenheim. Novel readers everywhere will be glad to have a tip on the brilliant new ro mance, “The Great Secret,” by E. Phillips Uppenheim, author of “A prince of Sinners”, “The Mysterious Mr. Sabin,” ana other noted books. It is one of the most fascinating tales of mystery and action in recent fiction. If you read the first page you simply can’t get away from the magic spell of the story till the mystery is solved in the last chapter. Suppose you were quietly undressing in your room at a London hotel when suddenly a terrified man rushed in, locked your door, and told you that the men outside were going to kill him. Suppose you liked the man’s looks, so that your fighting blood was up to de fend him. What would you do when his enemies burst in your door and tried to drag him off without law or warrant ? And suppose the man possessed some momentous secret which made him the victim of an international conspiracy, and that a beautiful American girl seemed to be one of the conspirators. Interesting, is it not? Well, that is only a hint of the first chapter, and the story carries one along in a whirlwind of mystified excitement to the end. Mr. Uppenheim is a wizard with the pen. Americans are only beginning to j realize that he is one pf the greatest j masters of exciting narratives in this decade. He is an Englishman with an American wife, and characters from both countries figure in his novels. “The Great Secret” is a marvel of its kind. The first installment will appear in the Sunday Magazine of The Chicago Record-Herald, Sept. 30. A Kentucky editor says he enjoys watching a citizen reading a puff of himself in the paper. “The narrow minded man reads it over seven or eight times and then goes around and begs all the copies he can. The kind-hearted one goes home and reads it to his wife and then* goes around to the office and pays what he owes. The successful business man, who advertises regularly and makes money by it, immediately starts out to find the editor, and then the two walk silently dowm the street, and the business man takes sugar in his’n, and both eat a clove or two, and life is sweeter, and peace settles down on their lives for a moment. Such is the experience of a mustard seed that falls on different ground,” ®be So €mi €cln Storm Visits Bay At. Louis. The storm of the present week played havoc generally oyer the entire extreme portion of the Southern country, the fury of the winds having centered at Mobile and at Pensacola, the latter place where the L.ouisville Sc Nashville Railroad Company suffered the heaviest in the loss of its docks and other pro perty. Pensacola’s loss is estimated at &3,000,00 ft. At Bay St. Louis the gale from the north-west blew all of Wednesday night and reached its height during the early hours of Thursday, uprooting hundreds of shade trees on every side of the city, and demolishing barns, sheds, outhouses and fences. It is unusual for a storm to prevail in Bay St. Louis from the north west, the north-east winds every fall blowing from the gulf and with tempes tuous force sweeping away bath houses, wharves and beach property, all of which was spared this time; as already stated, the damage occurring on land. However, the high tide of Thursday morning and high wind caused many vessels to leave their moorings for the open and more or less were seriously damaged. About the heaviest loser was the Peer less Oyster Company. Manager Mines says the damage to the Peerless’ ship yard and to the company’s fishing ves sels will amount to about 52,500. All wires between New Orleans and Mobile were down and telephone and telegraphic communication cut off for two days. Tracks of the L. & N. road at Lake Catherine and other low places were completely washed away, and the first train from New Orleans since Wednes day night rolled in at 10 o’clock this morning, carrying the congested mail of two days, which was eagerly sought im mediately after the arrival of the train. A Hay St. Louis Merchant Receives a Solid Car Load of Flour. During the w T eek a Bay St. Louis mer chant received one solid car load of flour for the retail trade, a consignment of proportions that would do credit to any wholesale house. This merchant is the progressive, en terprising and wide-awako W. A. Mc- Donald, whose purchases in large lots enable him to sell at low prices—good goods at the lowest possible figures. This car reached here from Evansville, Indiana, during the first part of the week and was loaded with the famous “Swansdown” Flour, manufactured by Iglehart Brothers, whose mills and pro ducts are well known. Swansdown Flour is a fancy product, a flour of the finer grade for family use, which sells at the price of the ordinary brand, better known as straight flour. •The car load consisted of 6-lb to 06-lh sacks and half to full barrels, in whifc quantities it is retailed. Phone 18 will tell you all about Swans down Flour, and an order by phone will bring the product right to your kitchen door. Mr. McDonald some motffh* back re ceived from the North a consignment of four solid car loads of fwi. This was the first of the kind evet brought to Bay St. Louis, but since then has become so frequent as to cause no comment. A VIGOROUS DENIAL. The Hon. Chas. Scott, in a speech at Ellisville Wednesday last indignantly repudiated the suggestion that he was the candidate of the Illinois Central Railroad for governor of Mississippi; the impersonal charge made by Mr. Brewer having been interpreted as re ferring to the gentleman from Bolivar, it was perhaps time for him to speak, and he did it in terms that are not equivocal. He says: “I do not know who is responsible for this slander, having no knowledge what ever as to its author or genesis, I not only indignantly repudiate it, but want to repeat here what I said at Nettleton — that it is wholly, wilfully and maliciously false, and but for my respect for the audience and myself 1 would character ize it by the use of a short, sharp, crisp, stinging Saxon word that can be spelled in three lettere.’’ It would appear that it is now about time for Mr. Brewer to produce that “documentary evidence” that he said was in his possession, to substantiate his charge that one of the candidates for governor was being supported by all the influence that the Illinois Central could command to secure his nomina tion. —Meridian Star. EXECUTIVE fIANSION. Repairs to be Hade at Expense of the State. Governor Vardanian has received from Architect R. H. Hunt the specifications for the contemplated repairs to the Ex ecutive Mansion, pursuant to chapter 30 of the acts of 1006. That act empowered the Capitol Commission to cause the governor’s mansion to be thoroughly repaired and to make such alterations and additions as, in their judgment, they deemed best. The letter of the law is unlimited in scope, but the means provided for carrying it into effect are just the other way, as the legislature provided only the sum of $3,000 for do ing little more than patching, and pro viding for a very small patch at that. The plans contemplate roofing and some painting and tinting, and the grading of the sidewalks around the premises. Of the appropriation, $2,000 is for the ing and repairing of wiadbips, and the oilier thousand lor the outside work- The last clause of the act provides that the Capitol Commission shall rent at the expense of the State a suitable rSSidenee for the Governor while the repairs are being made* BAY SAINT LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1906. GOVERNOR AND MRS. VARDAMAN ENTERTAIN COL. BRYAN. Governor and Mrs. James K. Varda nian entertained Col. W. J. Bryan at dinner last Saturday evening at the ex ecutive mansion at Jackson, and the Clarion-Ledger gives the following ac count of this brilliant function in its society column of last Sunday morning, as follows: Mrs. Yardaman, by the exercise of unusual taste, had transformed the inte rior of our age-worn mansion into a most charming scene, by the lavish use of the beautiful Southern smilax, with which nature adds the finishing touch to her own most attractive spots. Be side this, she had brought her superb ferns and begonias into the house,for the great nail’s further adornment. In compliment to their guest’s beloved State—Nebraska—the feathery plumes of the golden rod mingled gracefully with the deep green tones of the ferns and palms, while superb salvias, their blossoms giving radiance to all around them, lifted their crimson stalks, like shafts of flame within the drawing rooms. At sunset occurred the dinner party, to which were bidden representatives of our most brilliant social life and which was the crowning feature of Mr. and Mrs. Bryan’s entertainment at the executive home. The lower rooms were all brilliantly alight, and fragrant with the breath of countless flowers which had been sent from Jackson gar dens in Mrs. Bryan’s honor. In the se lect party which met the city’s visitors were gathered the representatives of Jackson’s brains, beauty and breeding, and we feel sure that our esteemed guests, though widely traveled and most beautifully entertained, do not often meet with more congenial spirits. The dinner guests were Judge and Mrs. A. H. Whitfield, Judge and Mrs. Robert Mayes, Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Williamson, Captain and Mrs. Frank Johnston, Dr. T. J. Mitchell and Miss Mitchell, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Alexander, Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Sively, Mrs. Moore, Gen. Robert Lowrey, Mr. Wiley Potter, Hon. Chas. E. Hooker, Colonel H. D. Money, Dr. Ward and Dr. Reeves of Texas. The long table, with its beautiful na pery, its elegant furnishing and elabo rate service, was a picture for an artist’s eye, lighted, as it was, with pale green candles in tall silver candelabrp., about which broad satin ribbons of the same tender hue were richly tied. The cen terpiece—a superb relic of “auld lang syne”—was of silver, filled to overflow ing with golden fruits, mingled with clusters of exquisite grapes, which seemed to hold within transparent skins imprisoned sunshine from their native vineyards. Governor Vardaman presided with the ease and grace of which he is past mas ter, and the occasion will surely dwell in the memory of all their guests, side by side with the most delightful remem brances of other happy days. Hon. J. A. Broadus, the well-known Representative from Harrison county, a resident of Biloxi, was a business visi tor to Bay St. Louis on Wednesday. Mr. Broadus is actively interested in the tile and brick making company now building at Clermont City, this county, and reports satisfactory progress, ex pecting to turn out from the soil of Han cock a muchly sought product for use by the builders and contractors. The machinery of this plant at Clermont City is of the finest and latest pattern, and that the company has seen fit to expend so large a sum of money in equipping itself so thoroughly, indicates that its members feel positive of success and have the fullest confidence in the possi bilities of this section, and is truly de serving of success.

The enterprise of the New Orleans Daily Tiraes-Democrat, in sending out a specially chartered steamboat to Bay St. Louis and the other Coast towns yesterday morning, with a supply of yesterday’s Times-Deraocrat for its pa trons, who were cut off completely from the outside world, was the subject of much and favorable comment around town. The steamer, the Walter F. Jahncke, blew her whistle for Bay St. Louis at about 11 o’clock forenoon, with a heavy supply of copies of theTimes-Democrat, in charge of the well-known “Bob” Pollock. Five hundred copies were de livered here at the Bay St. Louis News Stand, and before 5 o’clock every copy had been sold. Leaving here, the stea mer continued her course eastward to the other Coast towns and passed off Bay St. Louis on its return tnp about 5 o’clock in the afternoon On board was a staff of news writers, photographers and others. No commu nication by wire to receive the news from its local correspondents, this enter prising journal not only served its pa trons, but prepared and arranged to get the news of the storm by sending its own staff by water, fully equipped for the task. Mr. Richard Mcndes, the well-known and able local correspondent of the Times-Democrat, yesterday interviewed a number of Bav St. Louis citizens on his papei’s latest enterprise, and secured the following expressions which The Echo takes pleasure in reproducing here in the order as secured. J. A. Breath, justice of the peace: “The Times-Democrat of New Orleans is to be commented upon very highly in reaching its Coast patrons by steamer today at noon. I was glad to see a copy of the T.-D.” Peter Tudury, assistant cashier of the Hancock County Bank: “We received our paper as promptly as if it had come by mail. We heartily appreciate the extraordinary efforts of this good paper to accommodate its pa trons, notwithstanding trouble or ex pense.” Chas. G. Moreau, publisher of The Sea Coast Echo: “The Times-Democrat is a modern and complete newspaper, and this latesi evidence of its progressiveness is char acteristic of its enterprising spirit.“ W. J. Gex, attorney-at-law: “I cannot too highly praise the vim and enterprise of the Times-Democrat in furnishing us with news from the outside world within twenty-four hours of the passing of the storm, when all other avenues of information were cut off from us.” ] A. R. Hart, publisher of the Gulf coast Progress; “Such enterprise cannot be too highly j commended, and by our citizens, who | were hungering for a word of news from I the outside world, it was appreciated I more than language can express. The ! Times-Democrat can always be relied on to lead when it comes to ssrvinor the reading public.” Joseph F. Cazeneuve, cashier of the Hancock County Bank: “We appreciate the enterprise and spirit of the Times-Democrat in serving its patrons and friends. We received our paper this morning as early as usual, although it had to be sent here by boat.” B. F. Markey, manager of the Clifton Hotel; “The enterprise shown by the Times- Democrat is very commendable and is appreciated by the people of our town who would otherwise be without news of the outside world.” Charles A. Butler, photographer: “A splendid and worthy act on the part of the Times-Democrat, which will be remembered and appreciated by the people of the Coast.” John Osoinach, merchant: “The North has no longer a monopo ly on ‘getting there ’ The most recent Southern exploit is the most commenda ble act of the Times-Democrat in equip ping a steamboat and sending out of New Orleans the first news to the Coast after the storm.” GULFPORT, miss. Manager of New Theatre Names Some of the Attractions for the Year. Manager “Artie” Goodwin of the Gulfport Opera House has returned from New York perfectly satisfied with the results of his trip. “I was pecu liarly fortunatcym the trip,” said Mr. Goodwin in reply to a question from your correspondent. “1 went North principally to secure a contract for Schubert’s shows and had not the slightest difficulty in doing so, for I found the Schubert’s anxious to leave the Metropolis. I was also successful in procuring some of the handsomest scenery ever used in a Southern thea tre with 800 comfortable chairs and other theatrical paraphernalia of the very best made. On account of the fight in New Orleans with Klaw & Hr- langer’s people, the Schuberts will send their strongest plays to this section, and everything that they send to New Orleans and Mobile will play in our house as well.’, Mr. Goodwin informed the correspondent that he had jnst received a telegram asking for a date with DeVVolf Hopper on October Id, but it will be impossible for the play house W) be in readiness at that time. He js trying to arrange, however, for a postponement of the date, so that it is probable that the Gulfport Opera House may be opened on November 1. In this event Manager Goodwin will engage to keep the house open with high-class vaudeville and stock companies until November 24, when Schubert’s first attraction, pretty Trixie Friganzi, in “The Girl From Paris”, corrms on her first Southern tour to open the new I theatres in Mobile and New Orleans. After this date thJ Gulfport house will play one of Schubert’s big shows each week, and Manager Goodwin has ar ranged with the Majestic Vaudeville j Company for two nights each week, and lif the attendance at the new theatre i should demand it, he will fill in the other nights with high-class melodrama or minstrels. Among the list of attrac tions booked for the coming season are Eddie Foy, in “The Earl and the Girl”; Adele Ritchie, in “The Social Whirl”; Jefferson Do “Angelis, in “Fan tan a”; Blanche Bates, in “The Girl From the Golden West;” Julia Sanderson, in “The Motor Girl”; Henry' Woodruff, in “The Brown at Harvard”; Christine McDonald, in her new opera; and many • ii J O Oil I M ‘ igrrimm ilbftO I UHIM t r M for Infants and Children. mi Always Bought Prepacalionfor As- H • simdating the Food andßegula- ■ - m ting the Stomachs andßoweis of 8 JyGSTS tll6 m \ -^-^ll Sign?*sue y Promotes Digeslion.ChecrfuL jH M UT i ness and Rest.

In order to accommodate these large productions, the Gulfport playhouse will have a stage sixty by forty feet, which is large enough for the presenlation of any shows that arc brought South, and the house will have a seating capacity of about 1,200, with eight boxes. While no attempt is being made at a showy exterior, the building will bo safe and substantial, with five or six’ exits on either side, and the interior will bear comparison with that of any theatre in the South in point ot tasteful decoration and stage appurtenances. The promo ters of this enterprise are to be congrat ulated on having secured the services ot .“Artie” Goodwin us manager. Mr. Goodwin is too well known in the theat rical and sporting world to need any in troduction.
