WHY A DIRTY FIGHT ON THE NE GRO PHYSICIANS? H s-cms that the supporters of the vnnuMs Nij-.rn candidates on bothi sides are throwing mud. This should not have ever been entered into so long as the Negro physicians who gets it shall be expeet d to represent us In thai, capacity as assistant city physi cian, the two leading candidates for tin- position. Dr. J. . Dibble and Dr. ,1. E. Perry, stand so high in the com munity that it doesn't look well for the supporters of either side to be throwing mud at the other candidates. The job only pays $50.00 per month which is not enough money to kill either mail's busim ss by the dirty fiuht. which has been raping. Dr. Per ry, one of the leading candidates, has a very good practice In this city, In fact his practice is so large that it wouldn't warrant iiim In having the other faction to make a ti-!it on him that would Injure' his business. In fact we think that he has goten out of the race for he doesn't care for all this fighting, and furthermore we do not think he is a party to tho dirty fight that Is being carried on against the other ca- idate and again we do not believe tl t Dr. Dibble is In favor of those dirty charges which are going to be filed against Dr. Perry. Let thp tvo men fight on their merits and let their friends support them and then t.ee who will get. tin; ikiir.In.i!! v. Merit wins and party-regularity counts. The Son will investigate the mntter and go to the bottom of the charges, and furthermore we will sup port the man whom we believe Is be ing Imposed upon. We believe that the mayor of the city will believe in a small measure what we have to say. Let the fight go on.

The other evening it seems from the facts and testimonies that a gang of Negroes beat up a conductor on an Argentine car. This is sadly to be deplored, such an outrageous hap pening. It seems tout the conductor spoke to those Negroes ubout being quiet and it was resented. The Ris ing Son backed by the good Negroes of this community are against, such felonious assault and we believe they should be punished. President Colli gan is very strict on the niotorineii and conductors on the companies cars and he says "any incivility to the pas sengers mi the part, of the conductors or other employes t hould be reported directly to him and the matter shall Im properly adjusted. ..The Proprcssive Whist Club had Its first, meeting at the homo of Dr. L. .1 II. illy last Tuesday evening, October 2'.'!id for organization.
