WHY A DIRTY FIGHT ON THE NE
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. Watch our next

NEGRO ROWDYISM ON STREET
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
