The announcement of Forest Bangard as a candidate for marshal will be found in this issue of The Echo, and to the many who will read it his candidacy is recommended for earnest considera tion. Mr. Bangard is one of the best known young men of the town; he is a son of Hon. Leopold Bangard, former street commissioner and is well known for his exemplary habits and splendid character. If elected, he will fill the office of city marshal to a high standard, and his candidacy, now formally an nounced, is in the hands of the public, awaiting the verdict of the voters on the day of election. It is with no small degree of regret that we note the contemplated departure from Bay St. Louis of Foster Harris, for a year or more connected with the B. F. Tyler establishment. Mr. Harris, who is succeeded by T. P. Morgan, a young gentleman of Scranton, Miss., will shortly leave for his home at Red wood, Miss., and he will carry with him the sincere sentiments of a large circle of friends and well-wishers. Conscien tious in the discharge of his duties, true to his friends, and a young man of high moral character and whose integrity is above reproach, he cannot but win for himself a full competence of this life’s worldly goods and a deserving share of that success we would wish him. With Col. Street elected Speaker of the House and Miss Mattie Plunkett State Librarian, Hancock County’s Rep resentative, E. J. Gex, must feel grati fied, since he voted for both of these candidates, and he informed The Echo before leaving home that he would*sup port both in their respective aspirations. Mr. Gex is interested in several ques tions that will doubtless come up before the Legislature, and if the bill is not in troduced by someone else, he will in troduce one creating the office of travel ing bank examiner aud auditor, whose duty it will be to “drop in’* on any bank at any time and make a thorough examination of its affairs, the same as is done with national banks. stockholders meeting of bank.

Bay St. Louis friends of Mr. and Mrs. V, A. Griffith will lean with interest of the recent advent in their home at Gu If port of a little daughter. Ferdinand H. Egloff, having been ap pointed city marshal last Saturday by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, to succeed A. J. Carver, resigned, is a can didate for the full two years’ term be ginning in April, when his present short term expires. Mr. Egloff’s candidacy is announced in this issue of The Echo, and he solicits the support of his friends and of one and all. In former years he served the city in another capacity and at all times gave thorough and general satisfaction, and his candidacy is deserv ing of every consideration at the hands of the voters. If elected, there is no doubt that he will fill the office to the fullest requirements of the most exact ing and to the letter of the law. An advertised sale that has attracted unusual interest, to have taken place this morning at the front door of the court house, was called off by reason of no bid being offered, after E. H. Hoffmann, clerk of the court, announced that no bid less than $5,000 would be enter tained. The property is the lot known as the Taconi property, on Front and Main streets, with a front of about 57 feet and 100 feet depth. This has always been considered as one of the finest commercial properties in this city, and that no sale was made, is somewhat sur prising, ascribed to the tightness of money, while many contend the limit figure to be a fictitious value.

Among the numerous calendars re ceived by The Echo this year, none is more artistic and the subject more at tractive than that sent out this year by E. S. Drake, proprietor of the Hancock County abstracts, surveyor, draughts man, etc. “The Last of the Frigates” is from an orignal photograph by En rique Miller. The reproduction is de cidedly artistic and truly must it be seen to be appreciated. The following intro ductory lines accompany the subject, which we reproduce in full, viz: With the sailor-boys nimbly breaking out her clouds of canvas, the United States warship Monongahela—one of the last of our famous fleet of friarates — is las ing her course on her last voyage— just outside of Sandy Hook, New York, Decemoer 17, 1902. The tug that has towed the honest old ship from the Brooklyn Navy Yard has dropped its hawser, and with a fair wind bellying , the “square sails,” with “gallant sail,” “top gallant sail,” and “royal” being dropped from their gaskets, the historic vessel faces the wintry ocean as briskly as in the days of its prime, when Uncle Sam’s swift frigates swept the waters, routing England’s merWf-war, and teaching the Dey of Algiers and his pirates a trick or two in the art of sea fighting. On board the Monongahela during her last voyage were 400 young seamea learning their craft. For many years after steam displaced the sailing men of-war, the Monongahela was used as a training ship. She never had the good fortune to take part in great sea fights like the more famous Constitution, but she was the last of the stanch, old crafts to be broken up—the frigates with which the young Republic over a century ago won its glorious victories, and forced a recognition of its rights upon the sea. The photograph was taken by Enrique Miller from the tug that towed the Mo nongahela on the first part of its last yoyage. Mr. Miller is the special, ex pert photographer of the United States Navy, having his studio in Brooklyn, near the great Navy Yard, and his pic tures of our fighting ships are widely known. Gaston G. Gardebled is announced in this issue of The Echo as a candidate for alderman from Ward 1.
