WANT THE HINES
SUITS DISMISSED.
Delegation From South Mis
sissippi Appeared at Jack
son Yesterday and Present
ed a Monster Petition,
Praying that the Suit Ins
tituted Against the Edward
Hines Lumber Company Be
Dismissed —Will Benefit
Hancock County.
A delegation cf citizens of South Mis
sissippi appeared before Gov. Brewer
yesterday (Friday) at Jackson, bearing
a petition said to carry the names of
6000 taxpayers, who ask that the anti
trust suits against the Edward Hines
Lumber Company be disnSissod.
These suits were instituted two or
three years ago by Attorney General
Hudson and played quite an interesting
part in the compuign for the attorney
generalship. The Hines Lumber Com
pany is charged with owning and con
trolling more than the $2,000,000 worth
of lands permitted a corporation by the
Mississippi law.
The company has made efforts to ef
fect a compromise or dismissal of the
suits, offering to build a railroad fifty
miles long, from the Coast
ville; to pay the State’s attorneys, and
do various and sundry other things that
would be of material benefit to the
State
The citizens of this section of the
State are very much interested in the
subject, as jn addition to its other
pledges, the Hines company promises
to place a vast acreage of cutover land
on the market if freed of these suits.
This land at present is idle and benefit
ing no person or corporation.
WHAT PETITIONERS ASK.
The petition recites that the “Peti
tioners do not believe the suits can be
won in the courts; that if prosecuted it
will take five or six years to get final
decision; that the progress and devel
opment of a large section of the state is
being retarded and absolutely blocked
by these lands being held intact and tied
up in fruitless litigation; if a settlement
is made the intention of the law will be
fulfilled; and that it will be to the best
interest of the State and her citizens if
the suit is settled on the proposed basis.”
GOVERNOR IS HANDS OFF.
Governor Brewer said to the delega
tion:
“Gentlemen —That is a lawsuit pend
ing in the counts, and it would be highly
improper for me to do or say anything
calculated to influence the courts in the
trial of this case. I think this is a mat
ter for the attorneys representing the
State. If the counsel representing the
State think that the laws have been vio
lated and that, the suit is a just one, and
that they can recover, then they ought
to prosecute. If, on the other hand,
after careful investigation, there is no
merit in the matter, then they should
dispose of it as their judgment dictates,
without regard to public opinion or
censure.”
The impression is here that this is a
matter for the Attorney General to pass
on, rather than the Governor. In lact,
the Governor says as much. Attorney-
General Collins has declared he would
not dismiss the case if every man in
the State petitioned him to do so.
There will be no session of the Bay,
St. Louis public schools on Tuesday
next—Mardi Gras.
Mr. and Mrs. Thos. M. Nelson, for

fully spent and came to an end after a

The news of the death of Mrs. Jessie
Campbell Lunsford on January 24,1913,
at Shafter Lake, Texas, was received

dent of Claiborne, this county, and a
pupil of the Bay St. Louis High School.
Interment took place last Saturday, city

elsewhere.

BIG DEAL 111 PI
ACHES CLOSED.
In Hancock and Pearl River
Counties The Purchase
Pi •ice Paid Exceeds One
Million Dollars —Sale In
volves 40,000 Acres Ed
ward Hines Sells the Stum
page Rights to Union Nav
al Stores and Imperial Nav
al Stores Companies.
N. O. Times-Democrat, today.
Information obtained Friday confirmed
the sale of the timber on approximately
40,000 acres of land in Hancock and
Pearl River counties, Mississippi. Ne
gotiations for the deal were closed late
Thursday night between Edward Hines,
of Chicago, the seller, and William J.
Engle, president of the Union Naval
Stores Company of this city, who pur
chased the property. No information
could be obtained as to the amount in
volved in the deal, but because of the
values of virgin pine timber lands that
are known to exist in that section, it is
understood that the price paid amounted
to considerably more than §1,000,000.
Mr. Hines and his associates, known as
lumber kings, retain the mineral rights
to the land, transferring only the rights
to the timber by the present deal.
The purchasing company, the Union
Naval Stores people, are known to be
among the largest handlers of turpen
tine, resin and other kindred products
of the country. The tract which they
have just purchased wull be developed
for turpentine purposes, and a sawmill
and railroad will be constructed on the
tract. It is stated that this develop
ment will begin at once, and that a
large mill for the consumption of all
the timber will be erected, rather than
have small mills dot the tract. The
mill will be located near the little town
of Kiln, Miss., and a railroad will be
built from this point, running through
the timber tract.
Though the deal was made between
Mr. Hines and Mr. Engle, both parties
were representing associ: od interests.
Mr. Hines is understood to have jointly
owned the property with the Ware
houser interests, the two concerns rep
resenting some of tae most extensive
holdings in the U ited States. Affili
ated with the Ur. jn Naval Stores Com
pany will be the Imperial Naval Stores
Company, (of Bay St. Louis), which
together will develop the property.
The deal is one of the largest of its
kind within recent months, and inas
much as the proposition will be financ
ed and handled entirely through the
local office, will have the practical ef
fect of being a local enterprise,
Mr. Frederick C. Banderet, Jr., and
Miss M. C. Kirst were married in New
Orleans Wednesday night, and will re
main in that city until after the Carni
val. Mr. Banderet is having a dwelling
built in Toulme street, near Carroll
avenue, for his own occupancy.
