reports from these and other

Is At Work
A dog poisoner reared his ugly
head in Port St. Joe Tuesday
night and killed at least four dogs
during the night.
So far as is known by The
Star the only dogs killed during
the night were two cocker span-
iels belonging to Frank Hannon
and Bill Carr; a boxer belonging
to Vic Anderson and a dog be-
longing to Billy Quarles.
It was not definitely establish-
ed that the dogs dled of intention-
al poisoning Tuesday, but one of
the dogs was taken to a veteri-
narian in iPanama City yesterday
to ascertain his cause of death.
The cause of death was not
known definitely at press time
yesterday, but strong suspicions
point to intentional poisoning.

Seek Funds To Deepen Harbor
To 35 Feet; Entrance To 37 Feet
Mayor J. L. Sharit and Harry H. Saunders, representing
the Port Development Committee of the Port St. Joe Chamber of
Conimerce, appeared before the Sub-Committee on Public Works
of the Senate Committee on Appropriations on Navigation Im-
provements and Maintenance in Washington, D. C. on Tuesday,
May 6, and requested that an appropriation of $1,400,000.00 be
made to widen and deepen the entrance channel and inner-
channel of Port St. Joe Harbor.
Mr. Saunders stated that Mayor Sharit very ably presented the
Chamber of Commerce statement and that it was well received by the
Congressman Bob Sikes was present and gave his wholehearted
support of the project. Senator Spessard Holland, a member of the
Committee, gave every possible aid to the St. Joe delegation. The
delegation and the entire membership of the Port St. Joe Chamber
of Commerce are indebted to Senator Holland and Congressman Sikes
for their active support of this project.
In the absence of Senator Ellender of Louisiana, Chairman, due to
illness, Senator Margaret Chase Smith of Maine very graciously pre-
sided at the hearing and extended the Port St. Joe delegation every
Mr. Saunders stated that he and Mayor Sharit feel that there is
an excellent chance for the Port St. Joe project to receive favorable
consideration this year.
The funds were requested to deepen the local channel so that the
port could accommodate larger ships which are now plying along this
shipping route. At present the channel is 32 feet deep at mean low
tide from beginning to end. The funds were requested 'to deepen the
channel to 37 feet at the entrance of the bay and deepen the channel
and turning basin to 35 feet.
The project has previously been approved by Congress but has
been awaiting the necessary funds from Congress, which is what
Saunders and Sua:irr. were in Washington trying to secure.
Many shippers have started using larger ships to cut down unit
freight costs. The Port St. Joe port facilities are capable of handling
larger ships but they will drag the bottom in the present channel.
Upon completion of the deeper channel, it will require very little
maintenance after the first two or three years, since St. Joseph Bay
has very little shifting of its bottom, which makes it the excellent
harbor that it is.

modern table-top fashions has
come a growing preference for

The population seems to have
been increasing fairly rapidly at
this time. The number of voters
who expressed their preference at
the constitutional election of May,
)1839 amounted to 2,83, twenty-
three more than were enumerated
in the census of the preceding
year, and about 70 more than went
to the poll's in the same election
During the fourth season of com-
petition, the winter of 1839-40, a
new locomotive was put into oper-
ation on the Iola Railroad. This
was the last big investment made
by the Saints, so far as we know.
The lion's share of the bumper
cotton crop of the season was
shipped from Apalachicola. Of the
almost 105,000 bales exported from
this region, 72,232 bales were sent
from the wharves of the older city.
The results of this year's rivalry
were the death blow to St.
Joseph's aspirations for commer-
cial supremacy. Much wealth had
been lavishly spent by the pro-
moters in laying out the city, in
erecting warehouses and wharves
on the bay, on Lake Wimico and
on the riber at Iola, in construct-
ing 36 miles of railroad, in pur-
chasing at least three locomotives
and in dredging the bay and the
lake. A long continued and able
campaign of publicity had been
conducted. All political wire-pull-
ing that was human possible had
been attempted. Inducements to
settlers and business men had been
made with unusual far-sightedness.
Churches, schools, well-kept public
houses with ice-cold drinks, and a
good race track had been establish-
ed. lit may be safely said that the
founders of St. Joseph had done
practically everything possible to
make their venture a success, but
all in vain. The handicaps of nature
proved too great.
The financial resources of the
Saints were about exhausted; and
the heyday of their strongest al-
lies, the banks, had long since
passed. New causes of worry were
beginning to disturb both cities.
The western Georgia cotton belt
was about to be connected with
the Atlantic coast by rail, and the
river above the Florida boundary
was no longer as navigable as it
had formerly been.
St. Joseph approached its fifth
and last commercial season in an
almost hopeless frame of mind.
There was one little item of cheer-
ing news. The opening of a new
passenger route from Charleston,

S. C., to Mobile and New Orleans
by way of the town was announced
for October, 1840. This would bring
transient visitors to the place ev-
ery second day from the populous
Atlantic seacoast and might be the
forerunner of better things.
,However, -the hope was vain.
Before long rumors began circu-
lating that the residents of the
older city were going to buy out
the chief promoters of the town.
In fact, The Apalachicolian, the
only paper of this locality of which
a fairly complete file for the winter
of 1840-41 is preserved, definitely
announced the purchase.
Try To Make City Watering Place
What hope could the future now
hold for the settlers and property
owners of the town? Many had in-
vested in real estate, and numbers
of people had built their homes I
here. The commerce of the place
would not be sufficient to support
the inhabitants. Apparently a de-
cision was reached to encourage
summer visitors and thus make the
city an early Pablo Beach for mid-
dle Florida. This seemed to be an
easy task, since the bay had always
been noted for its beauty and its
cooling sea breezes, and its climate
was reputed to be the healthiest in
the South. Hence we find gathered
here in the -summer of 1841 some of
the leading people of the territory.

High School Band Is Looking For
40 New Members For Next Year
Forty -new recruits for the 1958-
59 high school band class is the ob-
jective of the campaign which be-
gan last Wednesday morning with
a band concert in the Port St. Joe
Elementary School. A similar con-
cert program was scheduled to be
played in the Highland View Ele-
mentary School sometime this
week. Judging by the present re-
sponse, the goal of forty new mem-
bers will be reached very soon.
During the concert which was
played last Wednesday, Mr. Dean
gave an interesting and informative
talk regarding the functions of the
various musical instruments. He
also announced that the official re-
cruiting day is set for Thursday
morning, May 15. The time will be
nine o'clock, and the meeting will
be held in the Port St. Joe Elemen-
tary School auditorium. Parents as
well as students are invited to at-
tend. An interesting movie entitled
"Mr. B Natural" will be shown at
the beginning of the program, ap-
titude tests will follow, and the last
part of the period will be devoted
to signing up all students who are
interested in joining the new band
class. A course of study for all new
beginners will be conducted during
the summer beginning about the
middle of June and lasting for six
During the evening of the recruit-
ing day, an instrumental display
will be set up in the Port St. Joe
high school band room for the bene-

Tuesday on "The Forgotten Wed-

that this forgotten prayer is the
root of most marital troubles to-
First off, Rev. Miller said that
many married couples have forgot-
ten the marriage vows. They are
not true, they do not cherish nor
do they obey. "This is a fact that
we are all guilty of at one time or
another" said Rev. Miller.
According to Mr. Miller the four
binding points of a good marriage
are faithfulness, patience, wisdom
and Godliness. "The presence of
these four things will make any
marriage the blissful relationship
that it is meant to be, Rev. Miller
The Rev. Miller put stress on the
habit of giving the wife little gifts.
"It doesn't make any differnece
what it is-just so it is wrapped
up pretty. "Men will take any old
gift, any old way, and take it and
use it. Women must have their gift
neatly wrapped in an air of mystery
to please her", the minister said.
"Never, never make the mistake of
giving your wife an unwrapped
gift", he said. "And above all, never,
never make the mistake of forget-
ting to provide a gift at the proper
