BAY SAINT LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12. 1912.
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having been withdrawn during the day,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.

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

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. ’

PARDONS AND PETITIONERS.
Lieut. Gov. 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."
