Officer John Spellman, against !
whom charges of malicious arrest
were perferred by the editor of this
paper before the board of fire and po-1
lice commissioners has been fined fit- ?
teen days’ pay. This case is impor
tant because it is the first time when
a colored man has taken such steps
against an officer. The board has
shown its willingness lobe guided by
the evidence produced before it as to
an officer's guilt and the punishment
of Spellman should forever set at rest
the plaint of our people that all white
people and especially democrats be
lieve with Judge Taney, that a Negro
has no rights which a white man is
bound to respect. Such a loelief is
unfair and utterly without founda
tion in the light of the large measurs
of freedom and industrial opportuni
ty which we enjoy. There is not per
fect equality and we do not believe
that there can ever be until Negroes
do their full share in bringing about
this result. Wore we more ready to
offer ourselves from a standpoint of
merit and leave off assuming that col
or is a bar, we would find many open
ings, in places where we do not even
seek now.
Competition is fierce but there was
never a good thing that got up and
went after a man too lazy or unwill
ing to seek it. We have wasted curs
e* deep and long upon the police but
in the very first case w hich we have
brought in proper form, we get a
square deal Let this boa iessou to
us to ask first before we assume that
we will be refused.
