Although a large section of the anti- Vardaman press, and many personal friends and political supporters, have urged United States Senator Leßoy Percy to reconsider bis determination to resign in January, nothing has de> veloped to indicate that he will change bis mind on the subject. Senator Percy is now in Europe, ac companied by his wife. They sailed from New York shortly following the adjournment of Congress, and will re main abroad until the latter part De cember. Until he returns home it will be impossible to leam anything autho ritative concerning his plans, and, after he gets back it may then be several weeks before it can be ascertained whether he will yield to the pressure. Those who are closest to Senator Percy express grave doubt as to the probability of a reconsideration. He did not announce his decision to re sign without mature consideration, and consultation with a number of his ad visers in whose judgment he has much confidence. Aside from the political aspects of the case, it can be stated with autho rity that Senator Percy has never been enamored with his position in public life. He entered the legislative caucus of 1910 with decided reluctance, hav ing been brought into the race by his friends and without his knowledge, and they had him fully into the running before he was aware that a vacancy was to be filled. He could not then retire without embarrassment to his friends. From whatever angle viewed, there is little reason to believe that Senator Percy intends to remain in the Senate after the Ist of January. The politi cal whirligig, of course, occasionally pulls off some queer stunts, and there may be developments that will cause him to change his mind, but at pres ent there is nothing to justify such a belief. JNO. SHARP WILLIAMS GIVES BOYS GOOD ADVICE. Responding to the request of the Southern Farm Gazette for a few words of advice to the boys of the South, United States Senator John Sharp Williams gives the following: “My word to the farm boy of the South would be that the three elements of success are Industry, Perseverance, Intelligence Industry without int elli gence does not win; intelligence with out industry does not win, and the two together must be coupled with per severance—and to this must be added that degree of honesty in dealing with one’s neighbors that makes friends for life “The movement back to the farm is no longer a mere doctrine. It is actu ally taking place, and it is taking place amongst the most intelligent of the Southern boys. They are beginning to learn that in a climate that is almost perfect for agricultural production, an acre of land with intelligent manage ment, good seed, deep preparation, careful planting, thorough and fre JOHN SHARP WILLIAMS VIEWED AT CLOSE RANGE BY HOMER DAVENPORT. Homer Davenport, famous cartoonist, in the Tribune, Los Angeles, California, has drawn several sketches of Mississippi’s Senator, John Sharp Williams, with the following characteristic pen picture, which The Echo herewith reproduces: “The United States Senate has seen in the past many characters, yet likely never one stamped with more origi nality and brains than Senator “John Sharp”. He is truly sharp, and his sharpness even has a wiry edge. With a sort of a bath towel woven summer suit, which ne dons in very hot weather, he looks, indeed, a fit representative of the plain people. Williams is blessed with the calmness exhibited in his tone of voice, manner of speech and stride. He appears the living exam ple of balance and harmony. “Of late years, he is turned silvery about the head, and his girth has ex panded till he seems at all times well fed. But with his years John Sharp Williams has grown even sharper, till he should be known now as John Sharper Williams, and the day is not far off when it will be correct to refei to him as Jonn Sharpest Williams. One feels as be hears Williams speak ing in his best whining inquiring man ner how pleasant it must be to be so easy in all kinds of weather on the floor of the Senate. His nasal twang suggests Mark Twain, as does his well spaped head and even his sarcasm with its peculiar strength and simple ten derness. “Williams is doomed to be the leader of the Democrats in the Senate, yet sueh certain doom does not in the least affect him. His method of speech is that used between farmers, exchanged over the line fence. Thus to Senators who purposely affect double chins and a falsetto voice he must be shocking. It does lack that element of oratory that you instinctively feel when you think of Daniel Webster or Colonel Baker. Yet it is modem oratory whea he leans quest cultivation, with the soil occu pied all the year by something to keep it from leaching, can be made worth five times a? much as an acre under or dinary circumstances is worth” WAR AND PEACE. BT ELBERT HUBBARD. The history of the race is a history of war and blood. The men who could kill most and quickest were the men who owned the earth, and those who destroyed most were those to whom all honors were paid. Any one taking a trip up the Rhine cannot but be seriously impressed with the fact that the chief business of men, until yesterday, was war. At every bend in the storied river is a castle. Each commanding cliff has a fort. Every point of vantage is crowned with a redoubt, or the ruins of one, where men armed with every known weapon of their time once bade defiance to other men and challenged to the death their brothers. No man could travel without an armed guard. Every man went laden with the grim instruments of death. Very gradually things have been changed, until over the fairest portion of the earth both life and property are now secure. Men who mind their own business have nothing to fear, and those are safest who carry no weapons. The honors are going to the men who can build—who can create. Within proper limits we may express ourselves upon any subject of vital interest; we give men the right to their own opin ions, and everywhere it is understood that a person has a perfect right to be wrong in his conclusions as well as right. No more striking proof of this change is found than in the fact that we have recently seen public opinion forcing ar bitration upon men who “had nothing to arbitrate”. The men who owned those rock ribbed fortresses and frowning castles on the Rhine once had nothing to arbi trate. They took their positions and held them, but not forever. It is the people who rule, for strong men are only strong as they are backed up by public opinion. When the peo ple feel deeply and think sanely, and vibrate together, the “rulers” quickly fall into line and do the goose-step. And now it has come to pass that the people object to being used as stones and sticks to figbt~the battles of the seeming strong. Their quibbles, quar rels, feuds and selfish struggles for place and power are none of ours. Helen *nd Paris may elope for all of us— that la their affair—and all of Men elaus’s loud cries of “To arms!” fall upon the ears of men who haye work to do at home. We smile. And here is a prophecy. In America conscription will never again be at tempted. It has gone and gone for ever. Arbitrate your difference—you are both right, and both are wrong. Fighting may test which side is the stronger, but not which side is nearest right. Calm deliberation will bring us nearer to truth, but heat, anger, strife and war only drive her far afield. The treaty of arbitration signed be tween Great Britain and the United States, and France and the United States, on August 3, 1911, forms an ep och in history. It lifts William Howard Taft into the proud position of being one of the great emancipators of man kind. The United States of the World will yet be a reality. over his neighbor’s desk, exactly like he would lean over the pigpen, and in quires “as to the tariff revision up”. His remarks produce storm, and this has all been done at little cost of strength to Williams. ‘‘His arts are hard to trace to any school, but his philosophy is easy to trace to a sound basis. Williams is of medium height and weight, with clear eyes that see all things. His mouth looks as if it had been lured away by heavy ends of tobacco or big cigars. His mustache droops like moss of the trees of the southern swamps, and at a distance his hair looks as if it had been cuddled into shape by the eider duck. Possibly the most striking feature, if it is possible to pick striking features from a man so full of features, is the poise of Williams’ head and hands when he stands to speak. It is exactly like the old-fashioned stump speaker at the minstrel show, who stands alongside of the small table with the big pitcher and the old umbrella resting on the table. “Senator Williams is one of those proud people of whom there are quite a few that claim much from the associa tions of the late Judge Culberson of Texas. In fact, he is one of the finest types of the Culberson school of states men, as during their many years to gether in the Lower House of Congress they were pale, the younger ever draw ing from the eider, and the older taking for his pay the boyish exuberance of the man in question. So now you no tice the young man, for Williams could never get old, has some traits like the distinguished statesman from Texas; has the art of unstudied gentleness, the art of common sense and good, cutting sarcasm,” TIDINGS FftOM FAR BRITISH COLUMBIA. Bay St. Laaii UJj Write* to Tk* Ecfc* £•- tertuakgb mI bt*r**ttofly. A few weeks since The Echo had the pleasure of publishing an interesting excerpt from a letter from a Bay St. Louis resident visiting at Hamilton, Canada. This week we publish another extract from a personal letter from an other Bay St. Louis resident, who has been spending the summer at Van Couvers, British Columbia. Mrs. Cecil Marion Blakemore writes interestingly as follows: This is a grand, up-to-date, substan tial and rich city. Banks, capitalized at from 6to 25 millions; on every side buildings and roadways are being built; there are also magnificent drives. The park here, of 7 miles of beautiful drives, is a grandiose work of nature. In com parison, Central Park, New York, is a pigmy in grandeur. The trees look like they had been here centuries, and one is awed into admiration. Every thing is so different from conditions in the "States” that one feels as though one had been autowed into another world. There are no evidences of poverty here; I have yet to meet the first beg gar. Everybody is busy and everyone minds his own business—a splendid trait to emulate. The town, or I should rather say the city, gets its water supply from the mountains; melted snow, and no need, as you may guess, to use ice. The weather has been cool, light-weight jackets being comfortable. Just within sight of my back window I see the snow-capped mountains —a condition that exists the entire year. No matter how the sun shines, the snow is ever in evidence on the mountain top. The trip over the route Cecil and I came is inconceivably grand; yes, the word grand seems most appropriate to our experiences in this sight-seeing. We have taken several auto trips to the mountains and have looked down miles and miles from the dizzy heights. We saw several men from Memphis and other Southern points, equipped for mountain hunting trips. Bear and other animals are plentiful. We have been invited to participate, but declined, as we want to live to fight another day; so we ran away. The population of this new 25-year old city is 200,000 and is growing rap idly—cosmopolitan, though the English is readily distinguished, there being many Southerners and New Yorkers here. Chinese and "Japs” are the do mestic servants, and our home colored "lady” and "gent” are not much in evidence. If we could only get one-tenth of the good will and energy that these people display towards one another in our Bay St. Louis, its future would be assured. TIDINGS FROM HACHITA, NEW MEXICO. President of the Lamimex Mining Cos., Tells of the Mining Enterprise and ot the Country. , Mr. Chas. L. Hopkins, of this place, president of Lanumex Mining Cos., of Hachita, New Mexico, has been spend ing part of the summer in that part of of the country looking after his mining interests. Under recent date he writes The Echo interestingly, as follows: "Some of ray friends and myself or ganized the Lanumex Mining Cos. of Hachita, New Mexico, to look for silver. We located at the Northern end of the Little Hatchet Mountains at an eleva tion of about one mile above sea level. Our main shaft, at 30 feet down, struck a very rich body of silver and lead ore about three feet wide, and on another claim, "Sunny Jim”, we struck the same vein, and at ihe "Lone Wolf” claim, 3200 feet east of the main shaft, at a depth of 22 feet, we hit upon a rich silver vein about three feet wide. All of this seems to be a continuation of the same vein. "We have a good pumping plant and take care of all water easily. At. the main shaft we have a fine hoist that at tends to all rock and ore from the shaft. ‘♦There seems to be no question as to our having struck it rich. In fact, we could sell out at 100 per cent profit, but we intend to put up concentrating ma chinery at once and operate all our properties. Here it is cool during the day and cold at night. Plenty of rain this year, wnich is unusual. Anything will grow here, if irrigated. There are centipedes, scorpions, tarantulas and rattlesnakes, but we hear of no one be ing bitten by them; in fact, people don’t notice them. "The scenery is grand; mountains everywhere. We can see someone hundred miles away. An object four miles distant looks only one mile away. The air is dry and pure and remarkably bracing. Fruit ripens and simply dries up; it does not spoil. Labor is plenti ful at fair prices; everything else is dear. “Later, if you are interested, I will write more about this section. Like all countries, it has its charms.” On Thursday Canada gave an over whelming majority against reciprocity, the popular vote being more pronounced than a parliamentary majority, which exceeds fifty. Laurier is retired and R. L. Borden will become premier. HANCOCK CO. MAKING RAPID STRIDES. Hwu F. C BonUfct, Sr., Praarat Bay Si. Loaii Cidzn, Talk* n BiUxi of MmkiyaJ aad Coaly AJvacaaat. Hon. F. C. Bordages, Sr., was a busi ness visitor to Biloxi on Tuesday, and while, tnere was interviewed re porter of the Biloxi Herald. That paper says: Hon. F. C. Bordages, a prominent citizen of Bay St. Louis, was among the visitors who viewed the big demon stration of the Biloxi firemen last Tues day. Mr. Bordages was much im pressed with the spirit of unity mani fested by the people of Biloxi and by the intense enthusiasm which reigned. “Our end of the Coast is making great strides forward,” said Mr. Bor dages. “We have completed several hundred feet of re-enforced concrete sea wall, and it is probable that the idea of bulk-heading the beach will be generally adopted before long. Bay St, Louis is the ideal spot on the Coast for a summer resort. On account of its proximity to New Orleans we get many summer visitors from that point. Our beach driveway is one of our greatest assets, and we might as well make up our minds to build bulk-heads and put and keep our driveway in perfect shape for that is what we have, eventually, got to do. “But the greatest evidence of pros perity and advancement m Hancock county is, I think, tne road work going on. There is, as you know, a road way which is splendid for automobilists from New Orleans to Chef Menteur. There is another from Bay St. Louis to Pearlington. There are only eleven miles to be spanned from Pearlington to Chef Menteur to complete the road way from New Orleans to Bay St. Louis, Then it would be an easy mat ter to get from Bay St. Louis to the other towns on the Coast, and it is only going to be a short time when there will be uninterrupted connection from New Orleans to Mobile, an era to which all who have the interests of the Gulf Coast at heart have long looked for waid to.” DEATH OF ANATHAIEL FAYARD. Well-Known Bay St. Loui* Rcndcnl Breathes His Last at the Family Home on Thursday Morning. an illness extending over a period of quite a long time, Anathaiel Fayard died at the family home, in Goodchildren street, Thursday morn ing, at 10 o’clock, death resulting from a complication of diseases. The deceased was a native of Bay St. Louis, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Peter Fayard, well-known residents. He was engaged in the building and contracting business, and by diligence he had accumulated a sufficiency to live in comfortable circumstances. He is survived by his wife and one child. The interment took place at Cedar Rest Cemetery on Friday afternoon, Rev. Faiher Irwin officiating, and who attended the sick bed during the dying moments. The funeral was largely attended, attesting to the esteem in which the deceased was held. The surviving family have the sympathy of a large circle of friends and acquaintances and of the community in general. TAXING MONEY IN THE POSTAL SAVINGS BANKS. N. 0. Picayune. It is announced that it is going to be a question whether or not the deposits in the United States postal savings banks are to be subject to taxation. There can be but one answer to the question. If deposits in State savings banks are taxed, assuredly, the deposits in the United States banks should also be subject to taxation. Every postal bank in the limits of a State must be subject to the laws of such State so far as such banks are the custodians of the money of the citizens of such States. If the United States can set up banks in the States of the Union and give de positors immunity from taxation, they could draw all the deposits from State savings banks and thereby drive them out of business. It is probably unwise to tax capital in such a way as to drive it out of the State, where manufacturers and other industries and enterprises are needed to employ the people and establish prosperity; but if deposits in State banks are taxed, then the postal banks should be put upon the same basis, and have no advantage save it may be of security. If there is any notion that money laid up in savings banks remains there as if it were in an old stocking and does not get into circulation, let such an idea be at once discarded. The banks lend out the depositors’ money so that it goes into active business. How could the savings banks afford to pay interest to depositors unless they have some means of getting a return ? The hundreds of millions of money in the savings banks is all represented in the vast business of the country, and without it there would have to be an immense reduction and contraction in business of every sort. Ten fresh indictments for vote selling are said to have been returned at Brook haven, and the end is not yet in sight, it is said. WQmrmm, I - - TWENTIETH Year. No. 38 ! PROFESSIONAL CARDS. M. A.
