There was a lively discussion on a
street car one night last week as it
came in from North Nashville on the
Je.ferson street line regarding the
competency and incompetency of
Judge Baker, the present judge of the
police court. The participants were
all white, well dressed and spoke
ntelligently, not only regarding law
and order, but the duty of a public
servant. One gentleman, tall, well
dressed, middle aged, was heard to re
mark. "Judge Baker is a disgrace to
the city of Nashville, he has no idea
of the law and is the most incompe
tent man 1 ever saw on a bench. His
decisions depend entirely - upon his
feelings. If he comes down feeling
well the fines are light, but if he feels
the least bit cross his fines are al
heavy. There is no attention paid to
the evidence brought out in any case
by a defendant," continues this gentle
man; "if a policeman testifies to the
contrary, the judge himself will imme
diately dismiss the case according to
the policeman's testimony." This gen
tleman further stated that if any ap
peal was taken from the city court it
was invariably dismissed ere it reacn
ed a higher court. It has often been
said that the policemen were encour
aged in their hostile treatment and
bullyism to force the public because
they were upheld by the judge of the
Judging from the trend of the argu
ment there will be some efforts put
forth in the near future to rid the city
of what the gentleman said on the
street car "its Czar." It seems that
these centlemen not only know of his
official record, but of his faint knowl
edge of Walker upon American law
and Blackstone reviewing: the status
of the State of Tennessee. This in
bound car waited on a switch and the
argument which was continued from
the rear platform seemed to grow
warmer. The gentlemen left the city
court and directed their other shots to
wards the work house. He declared
that no civil country save Russia

would treat its prisoners with so much
brutality and inhuman treatment as
that given the prisoners of the work
house. Here he brought un the two
recent actions of a guard in deliber
ately assaulting the prisoner, then go
ing before the city judge and having
an extra fine assessed, because the
prisoner was beat up. Whether the
argument continued into the shed was
not known, as the reporter left the
car on Third avenue, North.

LOCAL BUSINESS LEAGUE.
Expressions can be heard constantly
regarding the revival of the Local
Business League. Certainly such an
organization could do much good if it
would meet regularly instead of meet
ing annually, as has been the case
for the past three years. Business
interests, so far as the Negro Js con
cerned, is not looked after and one can
readily see the need of some organlza
tion that could, with a united effort o
all the business men, change and bet
ter the condition of the people identl
fled with the Negro race. It could in
many ways render-substantial support
to scores of various business enter
alreadv beine conducted in
Nashvie as well as giving an im
petus to scores of contemplated ef-
luiiB iu we ousiness world. The lo
cal Business League would be to the
Negro if properly managed and con
oucted what the Board of Trade is to
me wimes. TAe effort now means
much to 40.000 Npo n
Nashville. It is suHtn' w .a
President of the Local Negro Business
League have the Secreta fV ICono A Anil
of business men at an early date to
uicui aua revive the organization.
