Political Crisis fasscd. Bad Sections of
. Qty. newspaper Men Intimldatel
Tessel Hews. -
April The political crisis has
passed. The two days primaries were
held during last week and the result is
that a few good men are named to serve
the city during the next two years. Dr.
Rlddlck will be Mayor and Tllton Com
monwealth's' Attorney with Mclllwalne
City Attorney. Our chief gain is In the
election of a few clean men tp the coun
cils In all 'wards, except the notorious
fourth, where the strongholds of corrnp
tlon and the hot beds of crimes could successfully attacked.
In this ward a man can vote a hundred
ballots a day, providing he votes the
ticket named by the political tlacklegs
that infest this section of our city. .;.-,
' The Republicans have not yet named
a ticket, bat one is expected at once,
and we hope It will be sufficiently repre
sentative to be of some service, If only
to show the rlngsters that their days are
numbered, . We do not anticipate a Re
publican city government bat It would
gladden the hearts of all decent citizens
if such could be elected, as the both
wings and In fact the whole carcass of
so called Democracy of Norfolk Is not
only rotton, but putrid.
Norfolk County is equally as bad. The
hnman brutes and cowardly bullies rule
that section of our community also.
Newspaper Editors nor their staff dare
cot write In, criticism of the acts of the
political ghouls. ;
" The editor and two of the staff of the
Norfolk County Democrat were violent
ly assaulted on Friday last for no greator
offence Mian showing up a nest of vipers
In tbe form of Sunday liquor selle rs,
gamblers, brothel keepers, and their kin
dred. These outrages nn newspaper men
is not only an assult of the person, but
an attempt to Intimidate the members of
the' press and to limit the freedom of the
una. v ; -' " - .' ,
i This is the more serious View of the
case and if we mistake not, these self
constituted arbiters trill be brought up
with a sudden Jolt, that would make the
electric chair of Sing Sing mild in com
parlson. ' Boney Joynes tho proprietor
of some half dozen bar rooms, and gam
bling halls with his brother, was fined
twenty-five dollars In the police court
for assaulting editor Thomson of the
Norfolk Dispatch. Also two others of
the staff, and now comes the farce of the
whole business in the appeal to the Cor
poration Court.' We crave to see their
cases reach the judge of that court, but
unfortunately the records of the case
passes through othor hands previously,
when lo and behold that Is their ever
lasting finis.
