NEXT YEAR LOOKS BRIGHT.
Th* coining year ought to bring great things for Bay St. Louie. The city is on the threshold of anew era. With the completion of the sea wall and the waterworks system our city ought to be second to none on the Gulf Coast. Next year will see many new improvements. Our people ought to be prosperous and happy. SUBSCRIPTION $2 PER YEAR—ALWAYS IN ADVANCE. “FOOLISH WIVES" COMING SOON. “Foolish Wives,” the super-picture to be shown at the A. & G. Theatre soon, is the first real million-dollar picture. Its actual cost up to the time of its first showing was $1,103.- 736. This stupendous sum was ex uded in the construction of gigantic and costly acts and in the hiring of thousands of “extra” actors and ac tresses to make up the crowd scenes. Erich von Stroheim, the author, di rector and principal actor in the pic ture, prided himself upon reproduc ing at Universal City, California, the exact scenes and activities to be found at Monte Carlo. The three principal buildings at Monte Carlo were duplicated in Cali fornia with remarkable fidelity for the making of “Foolish Wives,” the million-dollar Universal picture which comes to the A. & G. Theatre in Jan uary. They were the Casino, better known as the Hall of Chance, the Ho tel de Paris and the Cafe de Paris. The interiors were fitted with the same furnishings as used in the orig inal structures, even to the mono grams on the hotel linen. Erich von Stroheim, the director and star, de manded absolute verisimilitude'. The two halves of the same build ing three hundred miles apart. A sounds like a cyclone story. Hut it is the actual fact concerning the big Monte Carlo sets built in California for “Foolish Wives,” the super-pic ture which comes to the A. & G. The atre next month. The fronts oi the big gambling Casino and an elabor ate villa were constructed at Univer sal City, near Los Angeles. The other sides of these buildings, which had o overlook the ocean, were constructed at Point Lobos, near Monterey, Cal. This studio trick of course, is not ap parent in the picture. It is not a novelty to rent a rail road Train or a trolley car for use in MAY CALL EXTRA LEGISLATURE TO REFILL TREASURY. Think Russell Must Act to Save the State From Bankruptcy Other Items of Interest From the State Capital. Jackson, Miss., Dec. 18. —It is the concensus of opinion among those connected with the financial affairs of Mississippi that Governor Russell will be forced to issue a call for a special session of the Legislature to provide funds for the treasury, which now faces a deficit of approximately $0,000,000, before the regular ses sion, which meets in 1924. Although the governor has repeatedly declared himself against calling a special ses sion of the lawmaking body, it is be lieved in authoritative circles that this will have to be done in order to meet current expenses from the treas ury, which is now declared to be in an almost bankrupt condition, with scant prospect of meeting State sal aries for December. Property Valuation Less. Property valuation for assessment purposes in Mississippi will show a decrease of from $18,000,000 to $20,- 000,000, due principally to shrinkage in merchandise stocks, with a falling off in personalty values resulting, ac cording to a statement by Dun L. Thompson, chairman of the State Tax Commission. Taxation on public ser vice corporations will be virtually the same, it was said. To Hear Pardon Fuss. Chancellor E. N. Thomas, of the Delta district, is planning to take up the pardon litigation, resulting from the test suit of Lieutenant Governor H. H. Casteel, shortly after the holi days. Attorneys in the case have been conferring regarding all phases of the case to be presented before Chancel lor Thomas. Messrs. Potter and Pot ter. of Jackson, will represent the governor, instead of the attorney general, while Lieutenant Governor Casteel has retained Wood C. Easter land, of Forrest. Appraise Prison Property. J. R. Oliphant, of Jackson, and J. M. Beasley will begin work shortly in appraising the property value of the State penitentiary, having been re cently appointed by Governor Russell to take up that work, which is re quired by law. Plan New Insurance Firm. Formal negotiations have been opened with the insurance depart ment by Perry Moses, millionaire president of the Palmetto h ire Insur ance Company, of South Carolina, for the organization of another domestic fire insurance concern for Mississippi, to be known as the Greater Missis sippi Fire Insurance Company, ac cording to repul ts in reliable circles. The Palmetto Fire, which is said to have been operating rather informal ly in Mississippi since the “outlaw ing” of over one hundred underwrit ing concerns, was one of the defend ants in the anti-trust suit filed in Pike county chancery court by District Attorney H. B. Miller, which was dis missed by the Supreme Court. Find Real Diatillery. A veritable distillery of ye olden days was uncovered by prohibition officers near Clarksdale, in Coahoma county, while the agents were attend ing federal court there, according to Ellie S. Chapman, chief of field forces. The loot included 10,000 fake whiskey labels, 75 gallons of more or less good liquor, and 8,000 gallons of mash. Four large copper stills were destroyed and seven men ar rested, charged with moonshining. drTjThTspence, Dentist, Gex Bldg. Phone 138. Hours 10 A. M. to 4:30 P. M. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. All Work Guaranteed. Tlie County Paper, moving pictures, but it is unique to lay a street car track and remake a ar. Yet this was done at Universal City, during the making of “Foolish Wives,” Erich von Stroheim’s great picture of life at Monte Carlo, to be seen at the A. & G. Theatre next month. Having constructed exact replicas of the Casino, the Hotel de Paris and f he Cafe de Paris, Monte Carlo’s principal buildings, von Stro heim had to install the street car sys tem which runs acros the plaza form ed by these buildings. More than 320,000 feet of film w re exposed during the making of “Foolish Wives,” the million-dollar picture coming to the A. & G. Thea tre soon. It would take 64 hours, or almost three days and three nights, to show such a length of film at the rate of speed to which moving picture pa trons are accustomed. Therefore, Universal has trimmed the picture, using only the best parts of it, to 10,- 000 feet, which takes about two hours. It took Erich von Stroheim and his company exactly 12 months to photograph the picture. Cutting and editing it to the desired brevity uk an additional six months. Forty-eight real plate glass win dows, each twelve feet high and four feet wide, were used in one of the costly buildings constructed for the ,-lining of “Foolish Wives,” the mil lion dollar Universal picture to be seen at the A. & G. Theatre next month. The glass was used in the front of the set duplicating the cele brated Cafe de Paris at Monte Carlo. Erich von Stroheim, the director, de manded the glass so his cameras could catch the reflection of the massive Hotel de France and the famous gambling Casino, sets constructed nearby. This directorial whim for absolute realism cost Universal $12,- 000. OVER FIVE HUNDRED CHILDREN MADE GLAD. Bay St. Louis Community Christmas Tree Entertainment Was Held Thursday at Central School Af cair Was eWll Planned and Car ried Out With Equal Excellence. To say the Bay St. Louis Commun ity Christmas Tree entertainment at Central School Thursday afternoon was a success is putting it mildly. It was all and more than was expected. Over five hundred children partici pator, for over that number of tick ets were collected. It is safe to say the affair has had no equal. There were toys and goodies for all boys and girls, their respective ages taken into consideration, and the toys and presents were of the better kind and represented something to the boy or girl recipient. It was a collection that represented thoughtful and re presentative purchase. The tree and all that it implies at this time of the year, rich in senti ment and thought, was made possi ble by the activities of the Bay St. Louis Parent-Teachers' Club. The good women of this organization worked without end, first collecting the funds, then the detail work that followed. It was a big task, but the reward comes in the fact gained from the satisfaction that it was well car ried out and resulted in so much pleasure for the children. There was no discrimination. Every child in the community who wished aas present, and everyone was re membered with equal consideration. The Echo wishes to congratulate the good women —everyone, from the chairlady down —for their part in the affair "‘and for the success which crowned their efforts. We would like to mention the names of these good women, but they worked not for pub licity nor praise, their efforts were di rected toward one direction and with one thought, and that was to make the little ones happy, in which they amply succeeded. However, it must be said, the ParenUTeachers’ Club is to be com mended. STANISLAUS IS WINNER OVER BAYLOR. The strong Baylor University bas ketball team fell before the attack of the St. Stanislaus College five here Wednesday night by a score of 29 to 25. As the score indicates, the game was fiercely fought, and in doubt un til the very final whistle. The Baylor outfit played a ' jam-up game in the second half, outscoring the locals. The first half ended 15-8 in favor of Commagere’s boys. Nick Petitjean led the scoring for he winners with five field goals, while Bonura came second with four field goals, to which were added five shots from the fre throm line. The guard ing of Jaubert was one of the out standing features of the game. His floorwork and passing and breaking up of pass work was excellent. Fullinger, the star Baylor forward, scored five field baskets, two of which came just as the game was about to close. Fullinger did the real starring for his club, even excelling the work of Lyons at center. Fullinger’s rally came* a little too late to do any real damage to the locals, although it did stand to scare them a bit. The score: St. Stanislaus (9).

Well-Known Resident of Hancock County, Aged 90 Years, Passes to Other World Survived by Many Descendants. Jacob J. Sirola, Sr., over 50 years a resident of Hancock County, died at the ripe old age of 90 years, rich in | years and wealthy in many Christian | virtues and the accumulation of a i credit of good deeds well worthy of the reward to which he has gone. Mr. Sirola died at his home at Kiln, Hancock county, Friday, De cember Bth, at 4 I?, m. He was born in Austria, the City of Fumay, Au gust 17, 1832. He immigrated to Uiis country when quite a land and no doubt was one of the oldest and best respected citizens of Hancock county. In early years he married Miss Mary .win Landrigan, of New Virginia, Illi nois, and to their union several chil dren were born. His wife and six children preceded him to the grave, ihe deceased had been in failing health for some time, but the con stant ministration of his loved ones at home and their ever solicitation of his care and welfare warded off the in evitable visit of the Grim Reaper, un til a few- days since he was taken sud denly and quite ill. His advanced age w’as against him and his enfeebled condition hastened the end. He died fortified with all the last sacraments of his church, having lived an ex emplary life of a true and devout Catholic. The death of the aged gentleman is deeply deplored and the sorrowing relatives have the sympathy of the many who know’ them, even though their loved one had long passed the Biblical allotment. We mourn the de parture of our loved ones, in infancy, in youth, in middle life and even more when vve have had them so long, when the period of golden years is acquired. Mr. Sirola leaves four daughters and one son, Misses Josephine and Mary Sirola, Mrs. John Haas, Mrs. H. S. Nicaise, and Willie Sirola, all of Kiln, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who survive him to mourn his loss. The funeral took place the follow ing Saturday from the Sirola home, Rev. Fafjher Dennis officiating at the home and cemetery. Interment was in the family burial grounds at Fen ton, Miss. May God send to the surviving rel atives that peace and comfort that He alone can give. GULF COAST FOR TOURISTS. From the Mobile Register. The Literary Digest of October 16 serves well the migratory element of the North by printing a comprehen sive survey of w’hat is available in the South for w’inter health and pleasure-seekers. The instinct of birds that fly to the warmer'regions is strong in many human beings; and now that the facilities exist both foi travel and entertainment, the move ment is very general. Says the Di gest: “The ancient instinctive spirit of adventure and exploration was re enkindled among humanity, and the voyage and journey, at one time pos sible only to those of ample means, have become a possibility to the many of varying degrees of wealth and leisure. Some travel for rest and recuperation only, w-hile others set forth with a kind of double purpose of business and enjoyment. Nor do they all move in the same direction toward lands where it is summer when the Northern areas are wrapped in the snow’s of winter.” Recognizing this diversity of de sires, the Digest makes its description large so as to embrace the w’hole Southern country, and draws in the West Indies, South and Central America, Mexico and California for good measure. The Gulf Coast ob tains a good share of representation in this survey, and Mobile is twice complimented with words of praise. “Alabama, although touching the coast in one small corner, has one of the most attractive of Southern cities, Mobile, described elsewhere.” And elsewhere is read the follow ing: _ “Mobile, facing one of the Gulf s most beautiful bays and fanned alter nately by breezes from the salt water and from the pine forests rising be hind it, is a city of tropical parks, shaded drives and colonial home steads, the old and the new in sharp contrast but all in a set ting tempting the winter tourist.” Also, the story mentions that “be tween Mobile and the Mississippi Delta stretch a chain of attractive waterside resorts, including among others Ocean Springs, historic Biloxi, Gulfport, Long Beach, Pass Christian and Bay St. Louis.” . ... The readers of the Register will have noticed in Sunday’s issue of the paper the statement from Lake Ar thur that a corporation valued in the millions, co-operating with the Louis ville and Nashville Railroad Com pany, is preparing to construct on this coast a first-class tourist hotel, such as the hotels on the Florida east coast and which have such attraction for the Northern people who visit the peninsular State. There is no ques tion that physically this coast is equal to any, and in some respects is unique; and, therefore, its develop ment by means of great resort ho tels is a business enterprise that must surely succeed, to the great enhance ment of all the communities affect ed, directly or indirectly.

Summer Residence of Adam Lorch Entered and Bed Clothing and Other Things Taken—No Clue to Perpetrators. When Mr. and Mrs. Adam Lorch arrived from New Orleans this morn ing to spend the week-end at their summer home on the beach front, they were surprised to find the back door had been broken open and the house robbed. Bedding from one of the beds, pillows, mosquito bar, one set of portierres and other things about the bedroom were gone. Besides this the thieves ransacked the pantry and in addition to pro visions that had been stored there, jellies and preserves, some dating from 1908, were taken, including glasses and other ware. A set of champagne glasses was also taken. Chief Albert Jones was called on the scene and will leave no effort un disturbed in an effort to apprehend me guilty parties. Mr. Lorch stated this noon that the loss will foot up to about $75.00 or SIOO.OO. A Crop Every Fifteen Years. Reforestation is something to talk about. But a great many people who do talk about it never think of it as planting a crop and waiting a hun dred years for the harvest. Yet it is a fact that it takes even 150 years to grow a tree big enough for certain lumber uses. Reforestation, when viewed from this angle, looks diaer ent. But it is seen to be all the more urgent. The trouble is to give an incentive to a hard-headed business corporation to plant a crop that can not be harvested probably for a gen eration and perhaps not for a cen tury. The tragedy of cut-over lands which aren’t fit for agriculture is to be seen in many of the lumbering States, where communities which were prosperous in the old days are now living out of the State treasury almost. These lands ought to be grow ing trees rather than be lying idle and worthless. At least that is the way the State of Louisiana looks at it. Ac cordingly the State of Louisiana has a law which says that if cut-over lands are cropped to trees, under the supervision of the State forestry ex perts for a period of fifteen to twen ty years, there wall be no increase in taxation during the growing period. Following the passage of this law, one of the great lumber companies placed 53,000 acres of forest land on a reproduction basis, so that only the trees of suitable size will be cut down, leaving the smaller ones to grow up, instead of reducing the whole tract to a waste. This means that the City of Bogalusa, instead of being a boom lumber town, will be come a permanent settlement of peo ple engaged in a permanent indus try. , , Other States have taken means ot encouraging reforestation in the ef fort to make it profitable to large operators. The lumber men them selves are becoming interested in the matter. A communication from the National Lumber Manufacturer’s As sociation intimates that in these cases of timber, which require a long time for growth — a century or more, for example — it may be necessary tor the State to take charge of cut-over lands and handle reforestation as its own enterprise altogether. — Dallas News. SPILLWAY IS GIVEN FAVOR. Louisiana Conservation Officials Be lieve With ihe Proper Drainage of Mississippi River Water Damages Would B- Slight. Following the continued opposition to the placing of a spillway from the Mississippi river which would cause the fresh waters to flow into the Gulf of Mexico and over the fertile oyster beds of the Louisiana marshes and the Mississippi oyster reefs, which was made by Mississippi Coast com mercial organizations and others, the matter w’as taken up by Edward Herndon, who is employed in the Mississippi factory district, with Frank T. Payne, connected wuth the division of engineering and oysters, in which Mr. Herndon asked just w’hat effect the spillway would have upon the oyster reefs from which hundreds of barrels of oysters are taken daily by Mississippi plants. Mr. Payne is very much in favor of the spillway now under proposal and does not think it will injure the oyster crop in the least. Mr. Payne secured his information from Major Frank M". Kerr, chief State engineer and president of State Board of Engineers at New Orleans. He claims that oyster life depends upon the proper mixture of fresh and salt waters and that where there is excess of either the damage is caused. It is said that a spillway located near the present Poydras crevasse would cause the waters to flow direct ly into Lake Borgne, thence through the Cat Island channel into the Gulf of Mexico. The report further states that damage has been caused by clos ing of Bayou Lafourche, where 100 square miles of oyster beds w'ere dam aged which were productive to the State of Louisiana. This report, however, has no bear ing on the efforts of those interested in this great industry, for they are keeping in communication with offi cials at Washington in an effort to have the proposed spillway discontin ued so that the chances of having the immense oyster bottoms ruined will not be taken. These officials have promised their utmost influence to prevent such action on the part of Louisiana, for should it result disas trous to the oyster it would mean a loss of thousands of dollars to the Mississippi Coast interests, as an ex periment was tried out to ascertain if the waters from the river would in jure the oyster life. It is very evi dent that the proposed spillw’ay will not be allowed to go through, as pres sure is being brought to bear on all sides. WJU JAMS OF MISSISSIPPI. Those who read in the New York Herald the speeches which the senior senator from Mississippi made on Tuesdav and Wednesday must regret that thus is the last session of Con gress at which the voice of John Sharp Williams will be heard. His place in the United States Senate will be taken next March by Hubert D. Stephens. , . Senator Williams declined to try again for the Senate. He is weary of State politics, perhaps tired of pol itics altogether, although he is not bowed with years—he has just passed 65 He has been in Congress since the early ’9o’s, sixteen years as a senator. After the death of Crisp and the defeat of Bryan the Demo crats of the House found in W ilhams a leader and an organizer. Missis sippi discovered that she had sent to Washington a man of really states manlike quality. And the country came to recognize John Sharp Wil liams as a man of fine intellectual equipment and broad national vision. Senator Williams has made other excellent speeches, some of which, particularly those bearing on Amer ican duty in war time, this newspa per has taken pleasure in printing, vve doubt, however, that the senator ever delivered, either in the House or the Senate, a finer speech than that which he uttered impromptu on lues day. The speech in part was as toi “I did not rise to argue this ques tion (bonus) ; I arose in order to pre sent my protest against the assertion that my two boys and my nephews and the other boys who served in the arm" of their country sacrificed two or three years of their lives. “1 merely rose to say that they dm not sacrifice them; they glorified them; they sanctified them in the eyes of God, of men and of good women. “Who would measure in dollars the dear love of a man for his native land? When a boy with warm blood in his veins answers the call of his country and goes out to fight for civ lization against military autocracy, I scorn the suggestion that he wasted the number of days, months or years devoted to that purpose. “I only pray that there may be an opportunity for you when y° u “ie to die in some cause so worthy that it may glorify your death and sanctify it just as these boys’ lives were glori fied and sanctified by the services, and just as in their death their com rades left behind them on Flanders Fields, were glorified and sanctified. —New York Herald. FORD PLANS ON GIGANI iC SCALE. Announces That He Will Build a Six-Million-Dollar Plant at Chicago to Facilitate Car Manufacture. Detroit, Mich., Dec. 22.— Henry Ford’s decision to construct a so,- 000,000 plant at Chicago for the building of auto bodies and assem bling of automobiles is only a step in a gigantic program on the port ot the Ford Motor Cos. “that will rank as one of the greatest de velopments the world has seen, was stated at the Ford Company s office today by persons in authority. It was pointed out that other de velopment projects that have been undertaken recently by the Ford com pany include the start of the great in dustrial plant at New Orleans, the contemplated plants at St. Louis and water power development at St. Paul. SENATOR B. ■ Who always has the courage of his convictions. He recently told the Republicans the four things they did at the special session of Congress— Confirmed the appointment of a woman for the Senate, accepted the res ignation of Mr. Newberry, attempted to pass the Dyer anti-lynching bill and the Liberian loan, the latter two flirting for the negro vote. Senator Harrison never misses an opportunity to flay the Republicans and to take them to task for their extravagance an 1 prolifigate waste. CUEVAS-MARTINOLICH. On account of the season of ad vent, a quiet but most charming wed ding took place at the Catholic Church of De Lisle last Sunday, when Miss Laura MartinoUch, one of the most intelligent and popular girls of De Lisle, was united in the hold bonds of matrimony with Mr. Howard Gt Cuevas, who is fast becoming one of the most successful merchants of Gulfport, on account of his energetic character, backed with the most gift ed talents in the business line. This new couple were agreeably surprised when several of their best friends met them at the door of th church and showered them with a cannonade of rice and other articles suited for the occasion. At this season of penance only a few friends were invited at the din ner, which was carefully and artisti cally prepared by Mrs. Frank Maivin olich, an expert in the cullinary art. Amongst the invited guests were Mr, and Mrs. George Cuevas and family. Mr. George Cuevas is well known as a successful merchant in Fenton. The numerous friends of the newly married couple wish them many years of devotion to each other, so they can share as much happiness as the Di vine Maker may bestow on them, as He always will bless those whose watchword is “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam,’ all to the greater glory of God.

BROTHER BRINGS BROTHER TO JUSTICE. Hai rbreath Tale of Justice in the Northwest. A tale that bespeaks volumes for the rock-ribbed code of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police came out of the snow country recently when is was ascertained that Corporal Bob Fitzgerald tracked his own brother and brought him back to justice. Acording to reports, the younger Fitzgerald, also of the Royal North west Mounted Police, fell from grace and after being admonished by Ser geant Georges Mardeaux, proceeded to ignore authority and further en tangle himself by coveting the wife of the inspector. When this came to the attention of Mardeaux, he decid ed to investigate for himself, and coming upon the pair unexpectedly, the irresponsible Fitzgerald, in order to shield himself from disgrace and the inspector’s wrath, killed him. By the peculiar exigency of fate, the duty of tracking the murderer fell upon Corporal Bob Fitzgerald, and then ensued the man hunt, with the elder brother in pursuit of the young er. The chase led through the frozen vastnesses of the bleak Northwest un til brother tracked brother —the ties of blood forgotten in the rigid codje of the King’s law, and the law of the North —Get Your Man! How, by a ruse, the tables are turned, and the murderer finally apprehended is to be seen in “1 Am the Law,” coming to the A. & G. Theatre next week. The cast includes the greatest galaxy of stars ever assembled for one picture; Alice Lake, Kenneth Harlan, Gaston Glass, Rosemary The by, Noah Beery, Wallace Beery.
