Meeting of Bond Commiuion--- Work on Sea Wall to be Pnihed. 1 A meeting of the Bay St. Louis Bond Commission was held on Thursday night at the City Hall, for the purpose of opening bids for the construction of j the sea wall. f Hon. Joseph F. Cazeneuve occupied the chair. There were present Hons. 1 Joseph O. Mauffray, Chas. Marshall, JR. R. Perkins, R. F. O’Brien, secre itary. Absent: Chas. Sanger. In ad j dition to these there were the members lof the Board of Mayor and Aldermen | present, sitting in joint session, and about fifty or more interested property owners and others. There being only one bid, all others having been withdrawn during the day, for the reason set forth below, this one bid was not opened, but returned, in pursuance to the request of the bidder, Mr. Bert Victor, of Pascagoula, builder of the constructed section of Bay St. Louis sea wall. The objections by the gentlemen withdrawing their bids are set forth in the following document, over their re spective signatures, as follows: To the Board and members of the Bond Commission, Gentlemen: We, the undersigned contractars and prospective bidders for the construction of the sea wall and back filling of same, as advertised to be let this 10th day of October, respectfull request for the fol lowing reasons that your Board post pone the opening of bids and letting of work mentioned above until some later date, 1st —The uncertainty of the time of completion and amount of work to be done. 2nd—That the specifications for the sea wall and back filling be made as two separate and distinct propositions. 3rd—That bidders be permitted to use a bidder’s bond of SIOOO on each propo sition, in lieu of certified check, and that specified date or dates be fixed for rejecting or awarding contract or con tracts. 4th—That some assurance be given that the necessary funds will be forth coming for the work proposed to be let. 5th —That certain modifications and changes be macje in the specifications to make them conform to the changes re quested above and as outlined to the city engineer, Mr. J. F, Sullivan. Respectfully, Signed: Southern Dredging Cos., by Henry Goldwaite, vice president; Horae Dredging Cos.; Willis & Blanphim; Jett Bros. Construction Co.,Laing & Freret, Thomas Worthington, John Henry. Bay St. Louis, Miss., Oct. 10, 1912. Following this a number of commu nications were read from properly own ers in reply to the communications and blank contracts sent out by the Com mission a few days previously. The majority of these were of a protesting nature, a few being willing to build the sea wall, but asking for different con ditions. The majority of property owners were silent on the subject. However, there were sufficient protes tations to convince the Board that their work was blocked under the proposed plan, as one member expressed it. Much discussion followed, and a nn*n ber of outsiders were heard in their remarks affecting the proposition. The Board did not adjourn until nearly midnight, after it was definitely de cided upon to advertise for new bids for the building of one section of the wall, beginning at the line of division between the Bordages and Muller prop erties, the south end of the present sea wall, this work to be built by the city; to build as far as $35,000 of the present bond money would permit; then the city, under the authority of the recent amendment to its charter, would pro ceed to collect for same through the courts. There was some objection to this at first on the ground that the de lay occasioned by the court process would be too great, but the attorneys for the city informed the Board that such a suit would be given precedence and would reach the Supreme Court in a comparatively short time. The Bond Commission is satisfied with the absoluteness of the power and authority vested in it by virtue of the charter; the Commission is composed of patriotic and business men of this city, who have accepted the honor and re sponsibility of the trust; who have been called to the duty of building a sea wall for the physical protection of the city and the conserving of its most vital interests and those elements upon which depends its fufure prosperity, and they are determined to build a sea wall and restore the damaged front of the city—amicably, of course; forcibly, 'if necessary. The work might be delayed, but from present appearances the wall is going to be built. v Boarding Furnished. An attractive, modem home. All screened; with electric light and arte sian water. Can accommodate a few boarders. References exchanged. Address: Bay St. Louis, Miss., P. O. Box 382- ~ NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC. ; Otto Sange, the well-known and re- N liable jeweler, located on the beach front, head of Main street, announces that he will continue in business and solicits a continuance of the past liberal patronage. Watch for advertisement j next week.—Adr. J ski H. Fitzpatrick was among the week end departures. The young man took a flying trip across the pond to Pass Christian. He was accompanied by his little friend Dejean, commonly known as “Feetz”. This pair reminds one of Mutt and Jeff, the well-known cartoons. The basket ball goals were erected during the week, and it seems as though St. Stanislaus wili have another record breaking basket ball club. Keep that spirit up, boys, and you are bound to succeed. A piano tuner has been quite busy during the past week tuning up the numerous music boxes. The ivory tick lers greatly appreciated this movement. Not once did our friend F, Blanchard, better known as “Tee-o”, think his feet were so heavy until he recently took the exercise of lifting those clod hoppers up. An awful misfortune, Felix, but a good foundation. G. Churchill left last Saturday for his home. He expects to return in a few days and resume his studies. I wonder why Fortier and Guidry kept so close to the college walls a few weeks ago. It was tough luck for you to be caught going out, and still worse to be escorted in. Some good-hearted person should have brought them some candy. I know “Country” missed his dope, and “Carencro” his chocolate milk. Lucas Griggs, the talented young chap from Louisiana, has been duly ap pointed prefect of the “baby carriage” set. He seems to be getting off rather well in his new office, and the children seem to have taken quite a liking to “Loukas”. Our friend J. Leßlanc, known in col lege as “Gravy”, again springs into the limelight with his foolish questions. “For why you stand up there?” Question No. 2 will follow in the next issue. All the young lady friends of Joe Wilbert seem to have returned home. Rather hard, Joe; but no more kodak ing for you at present. Even his “red head” chum left. You can hang all your duds on the wall until next fall, “Kinky”. Some class to that box of candy he received from Donaldsonville. Take the hint, McGehee, and please put those linen pants away, for we will soon have snow on the ground. Among the at the col lege is D. Pardo, iPjfciativj of Spain, but now residing in che Lone Star State. I know one boy who takes great inter est in Texas, even if it is a lone star state. O you grosbeck! . R. Perry, the little “red head”, has taken quit- a faney to one of the skirts of Meridian. I wonder where did that large box of candy go! It seems as though the writer saw it all ready and stamped in the office. C. Moustier, known as “Mousteek”, made a vain but fruitless attempt to become a member of the foot ball squad. It was comical to see that youngster tackle a man. The manager gave him the pink slip for fear of being arrested for prevention of cruelty to children. Another “freshy” entered our ranks a few days ago. His name is C. Rust, and he hails from Canton, Miss. A little exercise might help fill out his kite frame. (Jome on, “Freshy”, do not acquire the habit of sitting down so early. Among the Sunday visitors to the college Sunday were Mr. and Mrs. L. C. Tortorich, Mr. B. P. Cummings, Mrs. M. Irwin, Mrs. N. E. Shirer, Mrs, G. Reagan and daughter. I pity poor C. Wilbert, alias “Hands”, in the calisthenic exercises. It must be awful to keep those spades on the go for about ten minutes. Those “grab hooks” are some large. It seems as though one of our “fresh - ies” is afflicted with the “sleeping sickness”. His name is Pecquet, and he is a cousin to “Sleepy” Webre. Nuff Sed. No more waving to the little girl across the street for J. Wilbert. The young lady took her departure last Monday, and since that time Joe’s arm has taken a little rest. There is certainly some class to R. Abadie’s “Teddy Bear“ hair cut. A close observation of his cranium re minds one of a porcupine. J, Wilbert and F. Beaullieu were chosen manager and captain of the basket ball club. At a meeting held during the week eighteen candidates filed their applications for different positions. H. Fitzpatrick was elected | official referee. A schedule is being arranged, and quite a number of games are to be played on our home grounds and on the road. f Mr. J. Ros, of Pascagoula, Miss., spent a few hours at the college last Sunday, renewing old acquaintances, The young man was a member of class ’lO. Regular practice of the basket ball club has begun, and every afternoon quite a number of candidates are being worked out in different positions. A close survey of the players will con vince anyone that we will turn out a basket ball club that will, no doubt, be as strong as any of former years. N. Watkins, alias “Sister”, was in the hospital a few days ago with the earache. We are glad to state, how ever, that “Sister” has entirely re covered. We have a youngster among us now who is so fond x>f playing cards that be actually has a few games every night in his sleep. This youngsteris name is Jaequet, one of our distinguished “freshies”. The ever-loving Louisiana “Gold Dust Twins”, Severin and Benjamin Dufresne, are always getting muddled up. Every time they are questioned In class-room they have to state their respective names. ’ F.

Bilbo of Mississippi, who has been acting as Chief Executite of that State during Gov.Brewer’a absence, announces that in granting pardons to certain classes of offenders he will here after publish the names of the “princi pal petitioners” for clemency in each case. Suiting the action to the word, he pardoned last Friday a prisoner con victed of “unlawful retailing” and the published list includes the trial judge, the district attorney, two ministers and four officers of the county, in which the prisoner was convicted. His statement sets forth also the grounds upon which clemency is exercised. “I do this,” he says, because it fixes the responsibility and gives to the world the facts upon which the Governor acts in these cases.” The New Orleans Times-Democrat comments as follows; The acting Gove rnor’s new rule is highly to be com mended. We cannot understand, how ever, why he limits its application to certain classes of offenses not felonies, as he is said to have done. It would be a poor rule if it did not apply with equal force to all cases wherein pardons are sought. The same reasons by which he justifies its limited use justify its applica tion broadly and without discrimination whenever petitions for pardon are presented and granted. The publicity given the petitioners would be as whole some in one case as in any other. There would seem, indeed, to be greater need for invoking the rule to defend the par don of men convicted of grave crimes than for invoking it to justify the release of prisoners serving time for the com mission of “offenses not felonies.” Continuing, the Times-Democrat notes “The ease with which signers for pardon petitions are secured in this county. The average American con siders himself free, apparently, to sign any sort of petition that is poked at him without incurring the least respon sibility on his own part. Nor does he, as a rule, regard a bar to his criticism of the Governor, or Pardoning Board, for granting his own petition. The rule proposed by Mississippi’s acting gover nor is commendable tacause it will—or it should, at least—bring home to peti tion-signers in that State a larger and truer understanding of their own respon sibility. In the last analysis it does not, to our mind, absolve the Executive of blame for misuse of his prerogative. The question whether the pardon ought to issue is left, after all, to his own judgment. Otherwise the law would provide for the automatic release of convicts for whose pardon a specified number of citizens, or certain desig nated officers, should petition. But the rule, applied to all oases, would at least acquaint the public of the strength ana character of the pressure brought to bear in behalf of the applicants for Executive clemency—and it would tend, we think, to make the average citizen much more careful in the matter of signing petitions for pardon." Scce*fol Bcasfk for Sctosl at WavdadL Avery enjoyable event of the season was the grand ball given by P. O. Fa yard and C. E.
