R. ’rtfzLY, as a candidate for the Democratic nomi nation of Congressman, from this, the Sixth District. The Sea Coast Echo is authorized to announce B. P. HARRISON as a candidate for the Democratic nom ination of Congressman from this, the Sixth district. CONGRESSMAN BOWERS. Jackson News: The announcement of Congressman E. J. Bowers, of the Sixth district, that he intends to retire at the expiration of his present term, causes deep regret throughout the state. Since the retirement of John Sharp Williams, Mr. Bowers has been the re cognized leader of the Mississippi dele gation in the lower house of congress. That he is the ablest and most aggress ive member of that delegation is gen erally admitted. Mississippi can ill afford to lose the services of such a splendid public man a-- Eaton J. Bowers. During the last ten years he has performed splendid work, not only for his own district, hut the entire State as well. He has won for himself a place of wide influence a mong his colleagues, and it will be many years before the piney woods district can boast of having a congressman who is in every way his worthy successor. L. & N. GIVES SUM OF $35,000. This Equals the Subscription of the Southern Pacific to Exposition fund and Shows Con fidence of Railroads in the Movement. Announcement was made Wednesday that the Louisville and Nashville has subscribed for $3.7,000 worth of the stock of the New Orleans Panama Canal Ex position Company. This subscription equals that of the Southern Pacific. The subscriptions of the railroad com panies named are looked upon as show ing that the exposition company will re ceive the expected amounts from the big corporations having interests in Louisiana, and that the desited S1,000,(XK) will he on bond when the exposition matter comes before the legislature. TOTAL RECEIPTS WERE $55,000. Quarterly Report of the Gulfport & Mississippi Coast Traction Company is Furnished to the Railroad Commission Earnings $12,000. The Railroad Commission received on Wednesday the quarterly report of the Gulfport and Mississippi Coast Traction i Company which operates its inteiurhan system of railway from Pass Christian to Biloxi, in addition to furnishing elec tric current for utilities and domestic purposes, The passenger revenue was $32,256 71; freight, $1,075.37, and sale of current, $21,034.2*, making a total of sss,2tJft.lt). The cost of operation was $42,077.26, leaving a balance of $12,1*7.89 to net earning account. The same bal ance for the March quarter, 1900, was $14,803.93. L. & N. Cataipa Treas Growing Fast. Reports from the Cataipa forests planted by the Louisville & Nashville Railroad Company on the highlands, east of Mobile, arc that most of the trees are growing rapidly. The rail road company foreseeing that there would he a scarcity of cross-tie timber, devoted an extensive area to tne growth of the Cataipa, which is noted for its lasting qualities and its rapid growth. The trees, while yet young, will in a few years be large enough for use. Deputy Auditor Thompson reports that the Singer Manufacturing Com pany, in order to get right and stay right, has paid into the treasury, through the Auditor’s Department, the S3OO state license fee provided by the act of 1910. This is a change and really cheap ens to the company the cost of doing business in Mississippi, as the one pay ment secures immunity for the entire field, whereas formerly each agency in the state was required to pay privilege license of S7O, while individual sales men were forced to pay over the sum of Ho. The present law is therefore rather more liberal, not only to the Singer, but to sirailiur companies operating in the state.

Shoots Negro Girl at a Social - Negro Caught at Bay St. Louis by City Marshal. Mary Diamond, a young negro girl, about 16 years of age, was shot and in stantly killed Saturday night by Albert Landry, a negro man, at a social in the negro quarters at Pass Christian. There were four witnesses to the shooting and from all the evidence there was no ex cuse for it. The pistol was placed at the woman’s left eye, and the ball pene trated the brains, coming out just above the right temple, producing instant death. The murderer was captured Sun day morning by the conductor of the Louisville and Nashville train, bound for New Orleans, and was turned over to the marshal of Bay St. Louis, who delivered him to the Pass Christian offi cers. Landry was giving a preliminary trial Monday and admitted killing the girl but would give no reason for his act. Albert Landry, a negro, was arrested on arrival of the first south-bound train by City Marshal Robert Murtagh, and is charged with shooting with fatal effect a 17-year-old negro girl Saturday night at Pass Christian. He was taken to the Pass by the authorities from that town. Governor Noel has appointed W. C. Wells, Jr., of Jackson, to sit as special circuit judge for Judge Barrett, of the coast district, in the case of Mrs. Alvin O’Pry against Judge W. H. Hardy, his immediate predecessor, owing to the dis qualification of Judge Barrett. Tne case reverts back to a period some three years ago, when Mrs. O’Pry, who had acted as assistant and stenographer to Judge Hardy during the time that he acted as one of the code commissioners, brought suit for a balance of salary which she claimed was due, on verbal ororaise of Judge Hardy, which claim it appears Judge Hardy repudiated. The case was tried once before and came to the Supreme Court, where it was re versed on technicalities, and will now be taken up and tried again at the ensuing term of court in Harrison County.

SUCCESSFUL PRESENTATION Ct “UNDER THE LAURELS.” For the. benefit of the debt fund of the Catholic Church of Our Lady of the Gulf, the five-act sensational melodrama, “Under tne Laurels,” was presented at St. Stanislaus College Hall, Saturday evening, by Mr. Leon Graiuer’s com pany of players. The seating capacity of the large theatre was ove; axed and many spectators were compelled to stand in the aisles to the discomfiture of those seated. “Under the Laurels,” is somewhat a a heavy play, but the company 01 play ers were equal to the occasion and car ried it through to a complete consuma tion leaving nothing to be de-ured. The play was staged and produced under the personal direction of Mr. Grainer, and his excellent work was much ia evidence throughout the evening. Mr. Walter Collins, of New Orleans, was master of mechanics. I The following was the programme of the evening: CAST OF CHARACTERS: Frank Colewood Mr. J. Claston Riley Ike Hopper Mr. T.

SONG, “After School,” led by Miss Vivian Ducatel and Master Marion Green, and children, Misses Adele Rex ach, Louise Moreau, Lama Sporl, Judith Spotorno, Ruth Beyer, Lucy McGinn, Ethel Gex, Wena Gex, Margaret Green; Masters Leo Fahey, Sam McGinn, Silas Mayor and Victor Biaize. Directed by Mrs. L. Landreaux. Master of Mechanics, Mr. Walter Collins. Di ctor of Production, Mr. Leon Grainer. As Frank Colewood, Mr. J. Claxton Riley was at his customary best, and an d to an advantage his marked ability for the stage. At C he was particularly strong and won ihe sym pathy of the audience throughout tne performance. Mr. T. Ray Cary essayed an unusual part, that of comedy, and it was evident that he well knew what the author of the play had expected of the character he impersonated with so much realism and little touches of originality here and there that was indeed pleasing and clever, to say the least. Mr. Jos. McGinn had the difficult role of the villian, a part always trying and requiring much study and work, yet the least appreciative. However, the part did not detract from his ability to carry out the part, and his delivery was splen did, his lines being rendered with voice and clearness of articulation. His ef forts added largely to the success of the play. Mr. Albert Blanchard, heretofore tak - ing minor pans in the company’s pro duction, had much to do in “Under the Laurels,” and he showed a decided im provement in his werk, with promise for greater results in the near future. Mr. Theron Combel, the irresistible black-face comedian, fitted the pare typically, not overdoing his lines, which too often is the failing of such charac ter. As the dignified old colored man servant of the family he was essentially a success. Mr. James Vairin was an ideal leader j j>| We respectfully beg to advise our friends and custo mers that we have made arrangements with Capt. C. C. GRAY to handle our local trade.

GRAY. of the White Cap Regulators and car ried out his part becomingly. Miss Le ih Guerra, as Rose, the and augh ter of the house, and the heroine of the play, rendered an artistic interpretation of the part that was particularly re freshing. She was natural, unassum ing and pleasing, and carrying out ne of the leading roles, interest in the play did not fall for once, but was kept up to a high pitch of realism throughout. Miss Lucy Blanchard was given the and ffieult role of the step-mother, and rose to the dramatic climaxes of her part in a manner that stamped her as an ac tress of ihe emotional, and the subtile lines were carried out with every re gard to the part. Miss Blanchard’s in terpretation and the success of her act ing added largely to the triumphs of the evening. Miss Idalie Maffe was exceptionally pleasing in the part of Polly; sympa thetic and responsive, her playing was a portrayal true to the part and bowed a sincerety trial coula no. have otheivvise hut made her efforts successful. Miss Eugenia Moran, the house keeper, was true to her part in every de tail, and a better compliment could not be had. Every word and every gesture was true and carried its own realism. Miss Moran has a stage presence that at once puts the audience at ease and is worthy of mention. The scenic effects, when the sensa tional climaxes were reached, wore in deed splendid and calls for much men tion, but lack of space forbids. How ever, to Mess:.-. Grainer and Collins the credit is due. The terrific storm in the mountains, the thrilling midnight ride and the heroine dashing across the stage on horseback, was us much realism as could he had on any stage. Miss Vivian Duca.el and Master Ma rion Green in their act of characteristic songs called forth repeated applause and was indeed one of the more prominent features of the evening.
