BIG LIBERTY PARADE FOR m SI LOUIS SUNDAY AFTERNOON Demonstration To Take Place As the Opening Gun For Third Li berty Bond Drive, GRAND PATRIOTIC DISPLAY. The Public, Every Member of Organ izations and School Boys and Girls of City to Participate. Hancock county tomorrow —Sun- day—will stage its Liberty Loan da monstration at 2 o’clock in the after noon, and it is expected to be a suc cess in every particular. Every man, woman and child in Hancock county, who can, is expected to join in this monster demonstration, whiejh will mark the opening of the campaign for the Third Liberty Bond Drive in the United States. This campaign opened today, April 6th, the first anniversary of the day upon which President Wilson signed the decla ration of war by the United States against Germany. Hancock county has never failed in any call made upon it since the war, going “over the top” in every in stance, and in the matter of the Third Liberty Bond Drive this time will prove no exception. Hancock county is called upon to subscribe $74,410 as the minimum to the total of $3,000,000,000, and it is needless to say, Hancock will be equal to the occasion. The parade tomorrow, to be follow ed by public speaking, is in accord ance and at the suggestion of the fol lowing communication from the gov ernment, through the District Loan Publicity Committee, and from which communication The Echo quotes; “Liberty Loan Committees over the country are planning public dem onstrations for the opening of the campaign. We believe it will be possible to carry out this idea in t sl is District. Liberty Loan officials in Washington earnestly recommend that it be adopted by you. “The plan is this: On Saturday afternoon, April 6th, or Sunday after noon, April 7th, the citizens of each city and town will join in a mammoth war demonstration. Every civic or ganization, lodge, club, church, club or institution will be asked to assem blers members for a big marching pa rade. Banners will be carried. The | work of organizing ecah subdivision of the parade will be left to the offi cers of the particular organization w h ose members will compose it, and they also will be left to design and provide their own banners. The pa rade will be through the down town streets, and then march to a nearby park where a great outdoor meeting will be held, to be addressed by some notable. “We believe that a demonstration of this kind can be held in every town. We believe it can be made a most elfective medium for mobiliza tion of the war spirit. We believe the theme of t i! e meeting should be to stand behind the boys at the front. Such a demonstration will not only excite the public interest, but serve to enthuse the workers on your com mittees, The selection of Saturday or Sunday for the parade is left to your judgment, but Sunday afternoon will be a most fitting time to have the parade because more people will be free to participate and the fact of its being held on the Sabbath would add to the serious-mindedness of the peo ple and help impress them with the seriousness of the whole affair.” Accordingly, the parade and de monstration will take place to-mor row, starting from the place of form ation at the City Hail, at 2 o’clock oharp. The route of march will be from City Hall to Union street, to Front and along the beach way to Carroll avenue, along Carroll thence to Scc speaker will deliver the address of douse, where Mr. D. B. H. Chaffe, of New Orleans, and a well-known sepaker, will deliver the addres of the day.

Dr. McGowan was a splendid type of a man, beloved by all who knew him, and was known for the many charities he practiced daily in his profession and in private life. He was a typical citizen and identified with every movement and local or ganization for uplift and advance ment, and in hia death Logtown an< Hancock county have lost an ex amplary citizen.

He claims, and there is consider able other proof to shov/, that he was intoxicated and was coming home late; that the railroad track he had to cross was guarded by soldiers and that he was afraid to cross, and, therefore, attempted or intended to go into an old picture show to sleep for the night, bjat through some mis take he went into residence next door. Being in a way guilty he enter ed that plea and the judge sentenced him to serve fourteen months in. the penitentiary.
