W hereas, it appears that Cornelius Burke appeared before the Board and snowed to the Board that he had paid his taxes under protest for a cer tain Cleveland car as appeared by proof of his tax receipt, and where as it appears that the said Cornelius Burke did not own said car on the Ist day of February, 1921, said car being anew car and not in State of Mis sippi, proof of this fact also being made, and the Board being of the opinion that a refund should be made, but the Board can not make it and that the proper procedure is for the Auditor of State to order refund. It is therefore ordered that a copy of this order be sent State Auditor for his instructions in said matter. It appearing to the Board that the Clerk advertised for bids for install ing two toilets, etc., as per plans and specifications on file, and the bid of Bay Plumbing Cos. for $135.00 being the best bid, said bid is accepted and said Bay Plumbing Cos., to furnish bond in manner prescribed by law. It appearing to the Board that the Cierk advertised tor bids for building bridge over Catahoula Creek, north of Thomas F. Lee’s Place, as per plans and specifications on file, and the bid of Gaston A. Lee and H. L. Jones, for the sum of $1,300.00, be ing the best bid, said bid is accepted and said Gaston A. Lee and H. L. Jones to furnish bond in the manner prescribed by law, and upon the com pletion of said work and the accept ance of said bridge by the county, that they will furnish a 2-year main tenance bond. Whereas it appears that at the last meeting of the Board an order was passed calling upon the State High way Commission to build road in Bay St. Louis and directing w'here work was to be done; Be it now ordered that this order be and is now rescinded and a copy of this order be sent to the State Highway Commission. Whereas in contract entered into with Albert Garcia for building road from Waveland to Clermont Harbor s aid road was to run from Waveland depot, and whereas it appears that the L. & N. R. R. Cos. and others will not agree fo r road to pass there and it appears to the advantage of the county to run said road as follow's: Commencing at the Section Line between Sections 9 and 10, T. 8, R. 14 W., where South street intersects new road, thence on South street to depot w r ay of street to Waveland avenue. And this being satisfactory to con tract to make this change at contract price. It i s ordered that change be made in lieu of first conti'act. Whereas Alcide Nicaise presented u bill to this Board for $40.00 for hog that died of cholera, and where as the Board is of the opinion same should be rejected. It is ordered by the Board that the following amounts be paid out of the Road and Bridge Fund, as per bills on file, examined and approved: J. E. Saucier, 1,176 ft. lumber_s3s.3B H. L.

BISHOP MAKES HOME RUN. On Wednesday the baseball team traveled to Mobile to meet the strong Spring Hill nine. Wednesday even ing two games were played. The St. Stanislaus team went into the first game with the battery of Gex-Montz, while A. Belleud-Bab ington worked for Spring Hill. Rodney Bishop, lead off man for St. Stanislaus, started the hitting by sending the ball over the left field fence for a home run. This scored the Saints’ only run. Spring Hill scored their first run in the seventh inning, when Wenling came in on Loewer’s error. In the j eleventh inning Belleaud got to first on a hit through the infield. The next man bunted and was thrown out at first. The next man up did the same. This advanced Belleaud to third. Marston, Spring Hill’s next batter, drove the ball to center field for a hit. This scored the winning run for Spring Hill. The game was remarkably free from errors, St. Stanislaus College 2 and Spring Hill none. Gex and Montz allowed 6 hits, struck out 6 and walked 1. Belleaud and Babington yielded 7 hits, struck out 8 and walked none. Score by innings: R.H.E. Spring Hill 000 000 100 01—2 6 0 S. S. C. ---100 000 000 00—1 7 2 Time of game—l hour and 21 min utes.

Score Spring Hill 2 tallies. After this Spring Hill never got a man to second. I nthe ninth inning Bishop was hit by the pitcher. Martin, the next man, sacrificed. Jaubert tried to drive the ball through between first and second, but was thrown out at first. Bishop, however, advanced to third. Loewer drove a hot one to the shortstop. The ball was fumbled and Bishop scored. In this game Spring Hill and St. Stanislaus made one error each. Cleveland and Montz, the S. S. C. battery, allowed three hits, struck out five and walked two. Wratten and Babington, for Spring Hill .also allowed three hits, but struck out seven and walked none. Score by innings: R.H.E. Spring Hill ___o2o 000 000—2 3 1 S. S.

On Sunday, April 30, 1922, the Marine Bank team of New' Orleans defeated the strong St. Stanislaus nine by a score of 4to 1. The game was one of the best played on the lo cal diamond this year. The visitors scored their first run early in the game, which caused the determined collegians to play all the harder. And at last they were able to score on a hit by Lower. After this the game was a pitcher’s battle between Wilbert and Tabony, Wil bert receiving the better end of it until the eleventh inning, when the Marines annexed two much needed hits —a three-bagger and a single— t othe three acquired by them up to this period, which was the fatal blow to the fighting Stanislaus team, as these two hits added three more rung to the visitors’ credit. The collegians, although still con fident that they could do the same thing in their last inning, were un able to score, thus losing the game by a score of 4 to 1. Wilbert’s twirling for the locals was of a high caliber for a beginner* This was Wilbert’s first game on the mound for St. Stanislaus. The features of the game were the BAY ST. LOUIS. MISSISSIPPI. SATURDAY, MAY 6, 1922. FORMAL OPENING OF BAY-WAVELAND CLUB Bay St. Louis’ Newest Social Organ ization Will Formally Open New Club Ho*ise Saturday Night, May 20th —Reception and Dance Will Mark Event —Epochal Occasion in Local Social History—Bay-Wave land Yacht and Athletic Club Will Fill Long-Felt Want. Announcement is officially made that the Bay-Waveland Yacht and Athletic Club will formally open the doors of its handsome new club house, on the beach front, corner of Washington street, on the evening of Saturday, May 20th. The event will be epochal in the social history of Bay St. Louis and Waveland. A ball and reception w'ill mark the cele bration of the formal opening. With this announcement all spec ulation as to the day of opening, so eagerly looked for, is now' set aside, and anticipation takes its place. No event w'ill be looked forward to w'ith such general expectation. And it is well, for it is going to be an event that will carry with it more than in the ordinary sense and implies much for the community and its people. Members w'ill be admitted on their membership cards, and are requested to wear white suits, while the ladies will be in evening dress. The com mittee in charge announces that invi tations for all guests will be issued at SI.OO each upon written applica tion by members, to secretary, giving full name of each guest, money to accompany application. The club building is large and roomy and the exterior has been treated in that simple and tasty man ner which makes it attractive and in viting. The furnishings are all in harmony with this plan. In all it is indeed a great credit to the com munity and the Gulf Coast, and the result of the club’s work in compara tively so short a time is cause for congratulation.

SCHOOL NOTES. \s each day goes by, it is one day closer to the days for w r hich the boys at S. S. C. have been looking for ward to. Not so much the time for going home, where they shall see their loved ones, but for the day on which they shall learn whether or not they have passed to the higher grade, thus climbing one step higher on the ladder of life. Everyone at S. S. C. is deeply interested in his books and is thinking of the founda tion that he is laying for his future vocation, whatsoever it may be. They realize that the arithmetic, history, physics, bookkeeping, shorthand, etc., that they are now studying w’ill be the foundation upon which they will have to work during the days to come.

The wharf will be 1,200 feet long, ine piling will be placed at intervals ol every 12 feet, center to center, and the widtn ol location will be 10 leet. As the wharl will be 12 feet wade, this will give a pro jection ol one loot on each side. About half way out, some 600 feet, there will be a landing or siding, this will measure 18x25 feet, accom mouatmg a number ol venicles or pedestrians who may have to take refuge from oineis coming in oppo site directions. This is made neces sary by the unusual length of the wharf. To construct this long wharf it w'ill require 66,000 feet of lumber. This contract was given to A. Scafide & Cos., local dealers, and will be milled at tne Krankey mill at Lake Shore, it will require 27 kegs of nans, 7,000 pounds of 3-4 inch galvanized iron, for fastenings, etc. The drop gate at me end will be 15 feet wide, and on the outside of the end of the pier there will be a 40-foot fender. This will be both a protection for the structure and the boat. it was thought work might begin Monday, *but sufficient material has not arrived; however, it is expected that next week will see considerable more on the ground, when it is plan ned to begin work. As already told in these columns, Pedro Boudin, well known builder and contractor of Bay St. Louis, has the contract for this big job. Its cost is $7,200. That Mr. Boudin has me contract is a sufficient guarantee that the work will be carried out in a thorough workmanship like manner and that notning will be left undone. Mr. Boudin has had considerable ex perience in this class of work and is well capable and equipped to han dle this job, NEW FERRY BOAT IS READY. Capt. Drackett informs The Echo that the new ferry boat to be put in commission is ready for her trip to Bay St. Louis. The handsome new and spacious steamer lies at her moorings in Morgan City, La., but owing to the extreme high water of the Mississippi, the locks at Piaque mine remain closed and precludes traffic. It had been hoped to have the boat in the local trade ere this, but a combination of circumstances over which there was no control made it impossible. But waiting al ways has its reward, and in due time the handsome vessel will be seen in local waters and the trade will be accommodated, and the several feat ures offered will be enjoyed all the more. The location of the new pie r is situated on the de Montluzin proper ty, midway between the Tulane Hotel and The Echo building, and will re place the present landing at the Peer less Products Company’s plant, at the north end of the city. The change is made in order to cut the ferry boat’s time to and from and to give patrong a more central loca tion coming to and leaving Bay St. Louis. These considerations will )rove of immeasurable value. JUDGE POWELL STICKS. Notwithstanding Governor Rus sell’s veto of that portion of the gen eral appropriation bill carrying the calary of Judge Robert Powell, Su preme Court reporter, the reports of the decision are being prepared for publication and w'ill be issued in vol ume form as heretofore. “Money be ing nothing in my young life,” says Judge Powell, “it is probably certain that I won’t starve t odeath during the next two years.” From which it may be inferred that this venerable w’ar horse is confident that the Leg islature of 1924 will repudiate Gover nor Russell’s veto by promptly voting a special appropriation to pay Judge Pow'ell for services rendered. Most every man knows that noth ing can make dress goods go up quicker than a mouse. MEETING HELD IN THE INTEREST OF PROJECT TO GROW BERRIES Attendance at Courthouse Wednes day Night in Interest of Introduc ing the Strawberry Industry for Bay St. Louis and Vicinity Well Attended. COMMITTEE APPOINTED TO SO LICIT ACREAGE. General Discussion of the Project Brought Out the Fact That Senti ment Favors the Industry Hero and. that it Can Be Successful —Some of the Best Men Interested in Ag riculture Behind the Project. A called meeting of the commun ity interested was called at the court house Wednesday night in the inter est of the project looking to introduce the strawberry growing industry in Bay St. Louis and vicinity. This was in sequence of the recent visit of County Agent S. F. O’Neal and par ty to Hammond, La., with such pur pose in view. There \va s quite a gathering of parties interested. Leo W. Seal was elected chairman of the meeting, T. E. Kellar secretary. A talk followed by Mr. O’Neal* the county agent, explaining the ob ject of the meeting. He dwelt on the possibilities of this section as to truck growing, especially the strawberry. He gave a statement of what he saw in and around Ham mond, La., on the occasion of his le cent visit there. His remarks were conclusive and left no doubt as to not only the possibility but the ad visability of introducing the industry of strawberry growing locally. A GENERAL DISCUSSION. This was followed by a general dis cussion of the probable success of the proposed movement, the require ments necessary, organizing, financ ing, acreage, etc. On this subject there were interesting remarks made by H. S. Weston, E. J. Leonhard, A. Scafide, George R. Rea, J. N. Vairin, E. J. Gex and others. It was regret ted by members of the Hammond party that it was impossible for all to have been present at the meeting, another engagement previously made precluded their attending. COMMITTEE APPOINTED. The result of the discussion was that much information was brought forth and will prove of assistance in getting the project launched and firmly established. A committee was appointed to ascertain if suffici ent acreage could be pledged to jus tify a permanent organization being entered into in order to foster the industry and to report at a meeting to be called at a later dae. This com mittee is composed of Joe L. Favre, Frank B. Pittman, T. E. Kellar, S. F. O’Neal, A. Scafide, J. H. Rood of W r aveland, Ed Green or Lake Shore, Eddie Favre of Kiln. The general sentiment of the meeting was in favor of the project, and it is very probable the matter will be entered into with a vim and determination that in advance as sures its success. The Echo is deeply interested in this matter and hopes for its early consummation. We will keep our readers posted from time to time. W e hope next year will realize the pres- fjantock |ounty Hank.
