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.
“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.

Think Russell Must Act to Save the
State From Bankruptcy Other
Items of Interest From the State
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.

of speed to which moving picture pa

Universal has trimmed the picture,
using only the best parts of it, to 10,-

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

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.

Well-Known Resident of Hancock

Jacob J. Sirola, Sr., over 50 years
a resident of Hancock County, died at
the ripe old age of 90 years, rich in

Mr. Sirola died at his home at
Kiln, Hancock county, Friday, De

in Austria, the City of Fumay, Au

doubt was one of the oldest and best
respected citizens of Hancock county.
In early years he married Miss Mary

children preceded him to the grave,

health for some time, but the con

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.

A week of jolly fun and play;
The silence bells we do not hear,
For it’s a week of Christmas cheer.
It’s bad to say we break a rule,
And even talk aloud in school;
But have your fun, and never fear,
As Christmas comes but once a year.
Now you may talk, laugh and be gay,
Be jolly, girls, the while you may;
For you can see at but one glance
That this may be your only chance.

Summer Residence of Adam Lorch
Entered and Bed Clothing and
Other Things Taken—No Clue to
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
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
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.
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
Those who read in the New York

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

Senator Williams has made other
excellent speeches, some of which,

the Senate, a finer speech than that
which he uttered impromptu on lues

of God, of men and of good women.
“Who would measure in dollars the
dear love of a man for his native

in his veins answers the call of his
country and goes out to fight for civ

I scorn the suggestion that he wasted
the number of days, months or years
devoted to that purpose.

Announces That He Will Build a

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.
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.

ding took place at the Catholic Church
of De Lisle last Sunday, when Miss

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

Amongst the invited guests were Mr,
and Mrs. George Cuevas and family.
Mr. George Cuevas is well known as
a successful merchant in Fenton.

married couple wish them many years
of devotion to each other, so they can
share as much happiness as the Di

Hai rbreath Tale of Justice in the
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.
