NIGHT OF TERROR SPERTJN SOUND By Five Young Orleanians, Who Had Gone Out In A Small Open Boat STOOD TOGETHER AWAITING END. Brave Efforts Made, But Cries Unnoticed and at Last Turn to Prayer. Battling against death, with the odds heavily against them, five young men remained in the waters of Mississippi Sound, off Waveland, for twenty-five hours, and just when all hope of being rescued had been given up, they were saved and restored to their distracted parents Monday afternoon. They went out at 11 o'clock Sunday morning. Their experience was probably un precedented, and that they are alive and uninjured is nothing short of mi raculous. THE FIVE ORLEANIANS. The young men, summer residents, who lived to tell the thrilling story are: E. J. Louapre, Jr., 21 years old; Rene Louapre, 19 years old; Fernand Lou apre, 16 years, all brothers, living at 1812 Frenchmen street; Willie Hutch inson, 16 years, living with his parents at 1802 Frenchmen street; and Joseph Lestelle, 16 years, of 1806 Frenchmen street, New Orleans. The boys left Nicholson avenue at 11 o’clock Sunday morning in a sixteen foot cat boat which was formerly oper ated by power, but now has no engine, a sail having been substituted. They removed the rudder and were steering with an oar. STRUCK BY SQUALL. They cruised for more than three hours, when a squall came up and over turned the boat. The oar, mast and canvas and the baling can were all lost. Having had previous experience on Mississippi Sound, and knowing the dangers that lurked in the waters, the young men lost no time in planning what was to be done. They resolved to stick together to the last and bend every effort to let others know of their plight. The young men worked hard and finally had the boat righted, but the water could not be baled out, so they stood in the little craft and hoped against hope for a safe return to their families, but feared for the worst all the while. The boat drifted with the current and tide all night. At times it was close to the shore, but still too far to be within calling distance. With eyes and ears alert, the lonely and desolate young men watched and listened for any craft that might bring aid, PRAYED FOR RESCUE. They prayed most fervently that God would spare them from being drowned, although, as the hours wore on, this fate seemed inevitable. None but they could adequately de scribe their feelings, and none could express the joy that filled their hearts when the rescuing party came for them, The Claudia, an auxiliary catboat owned by Ernest A. Carrere, of New Orleans, and manned by Leslie P. Beard and Harold Delbert, was the craft that R, F. O’Brien, Secretary. Tuesday evening, August 6,1912, 5:30 o’clock p. m. The board reconvened. Present: Hon. R. W. Toulme, mayor; Geo. C. Firsching, R. W. Webb, aider men; R. J. Murtagh,* marshal; R. F. O’Brien, secretary. Absent, Pasqual Lutzzi, alderman. The board resumed the examination of the assessment rolls, but same not being concluded took a recess to Wednesday, August 7, 1912, at 5:30 o’clock p. m. R. W. Toulme, Mayor. Attest: R. F, O’Brien, Secretary, Wednesday evening, August 7, 1912, the Board reconvened. Present, R. W, Toulme, mayor; .George C. Firsching, R. Blaize and R, W, Webb, aldermen,*- R. J. Murtagh, marshal; R. F. O’Brien, secretary. Absent, P. Lutzzi, aider man. On motion of Alderman Webb, seconded by Alderman Firsching the following resolution was passed and adopted: Whereas in the opinion of (be Board of Mayor and Aldermen the bond of the treasurer of the City of Bay St. Louis is insufficient and inadequate be cause said bond is in the penalty of Five Thousand ($5000) Dollars and be cause of an issuance of municipal bonds of said city and the sale of said bonds for the sum of $50,988.35, which additional funds of the city of Bay St. Louis are likely to come into said treas urer’s hands; now, Therefore, Be it resolved, That the treasurer of the city of Bay St. Louis be and he is hereby required to famish and file, as required by law, anew and other official bond as such treasurer, with sureties and conditioned as provided by law, In the sum of Fifty One Thousand Dollars. Approved in open Board upon this the 7th day of August A D 1912. (Concluded next week); picked them up. The boat could not go direct to the floundering boys, but Jules Favre went to their aid in a skiff. The boys were picked up at Square Handkerchief, an oyster reef probably six or seven miles from Cat Island. The Claudia put to sea in search of the boys, and the men, knowing the lay of the wind, figured out about where the boat of the boys would drift to. The unfortunates were sighted by Leslie P. Beard, who kept a lookout from the mast of the Claudia. The lads were clad in bathing suits and were in a serious condition when taken aboard the Claudia. Fortunately, there was an outfit aboard for the mak ing of coffee, and the youths were re freshed somewhat on that hot stimulant. It was stated that Sunday night was a fearful one for the boys. One of the number, being an expert swimmer, de termined to make a try to reach the beach, some five miles away, and put off from the boat. He had not gone far, when he was seized with cramps, but he had the presence of mind to call for help, and he was assisted back to the boat. They were actually in the water Monday from about 4 a. m. until noon. It did not take the famished and greatly fatigued young men long to get into the boat, although they had to be assisted by several men who accom panied Mr. Favre. GIVEN GREAT WELCOME. Dr, Scott’s pier was the landing place for the gasoline boat, which was look ed for by a great number of the relatives and friends of the rescued. They were assisted to the Louapre home, where they were put to bed and given treat ment. All were pronounced remarka bly well, considering the circumstances. At 9 o’clock Sunday night it was de cided by the relatives and friends of the young men that they must have met with some mishap, as nothing had been heard from them. Searching parties immediately started out in all sorts of boats, but the night was dark and cloudy, and little or no results were hoped for by those who volunteered in the work. FAMILIES SEARCH LONG. Messrs, Louapre, Hutchinson and Lestelle, accompanied by several of their friends, came over from New Or leans on the earliest train and took up the work themselves. The telephone and telegraph wires were employed in the hope that all nearby resorts might be beard from, and every possible clew Was followed up. Mrs. Lestelle came over Sunday morning and was in Wave land and Bay St. Louis during the night and shared with Mrs. Louapre the terrible anguish consequent upon the disappearance of their sons and their young friends. Ernest J. Louapre, Jr., is secretary and treasurer of the Louapre Wood and Willowware Company, of which his father is president, young Hutch inson is employed in Irby’s tobacco plant with his father, and Joseph Les telle is a butcher in the Delamore market—all of New Orleans. angellTdeath VISITS O’HARA HOME m Joseph Francis O’Hara, the Youngest Son and Idol of the Home, Victim of Ac cident —Death Results Un expectedly After an Oper ation Performed in New Orleans on Sunday Last. Joseph Francis O’Hara, youngest son of Dr. and Mrs. Joseph A. O’Hara, of New Orleans, who are regular summer residents of Bay St. Louis, died In that city Sunday night, at 11:45 o’clock. It appears the little fellow had been rid ing on his bicycle in the vicinity of his home at Cedar Point, and, as he reached the corner of Front and Julia streets, fell from his wheel, hurting one of his knees. Manly in bearing and charac ter, and not wishing to cause his par ents any apprehension, he hid the knowledge of the accident from them until last Tnursday, when high fever set in. The lad received the best of local medical attention until his knee began to swell, reaching snch proportions that it was decided to operate the member. Accordingly, on Saturday morning he was taken to New Orleans, and the operation was performed the same morning by Drs. Stafford and O’Hara, but the desired results were not forth - 1 1 THE ECHO’S Job Printing Department U Pi.nl— Md U >0 Dm POWER EQUIPPED TWENTY-FIRST Year.

So excellent was the lad’s mental capacity that in his exami nations at school last session little Jo seph was advanced two grades, and he had looked forward even in the joys of vacation to the time when he could re turn to his books. The funeral took place Monday even ing from the O’Hara home, 2241 Ba ronne street. The sympathy of many goes out in this hour of deep bereave ment to the grief-stricken father and mother, and to the surviving brother and sister, William O’Hara and Misa Ruth O’Hara, Dr. O’Hara and family are no stran gers to the people of Bay St, Louis and to the members of the summer colony.
