Ed Journal: It looks u though the Mayor's court In dealing with violators of city ordinances Is competing with Justice Street's court In dealing with the violators of State laws from township No.1. '. I think If the kind hearted and genial gentlemen (Mayor and Justice) will use a little more judicial sternness it will help them to reduce their dockets. I concur in some of the opinions of T, L.H. of Morehead City expressed In an article In Tuesday's JoubnA, under the heading "Voice of the People." If when a criminal is on trial before judge and jury there are any palliating circum stances they ought to come out then and let the court decide accordingly. There are too many criminals looking for exe cutive clemency, and the bad effect are noticeable. X v .1 iis --.
