SATURDAY..DECEMBER 22, 102a PERKY HOWARD VINDICATED. .Assistant Attorney General Perry W. Howard and his Mississippi as sociates*, both white and colored were acquitted of the charges under which they were indicted and can once more look their accusers in the face and point at thefn the accusing finger of scorn. It was a political trick unworthy of people in high places. Mrs. Mabel Walker Wille brandt was a party to this disrepu table business and she should do all in her power to right the wrong that she has done to her colleague in the office Of the Attorney General of the United State®. Mr. Howard in a member of the Republican National Committee and will remain so unle®s be resigns before the next presidential election. It places the Republican leaders in a most embarrassing position. Hon. Robert R. Church of Tennessee and Hon. Perry W. Howard of Missis sippi hold a winning hand unless President-elect Herbert Hoover sees fit to insist upon their retirement from Party affairs. It is an inter esting situation,, to say the least. Mr. Howard occupes the center of the stage, so to speak. Can he stand the “gaff”? Will he follow the example of Hon. B. J. Davis on account of money considerations and retire? We shall see what we shall see. -* MR. .JORDAN’S STATEMENT. We publish elsewhere a commun ication from Mr. William A, Jordan tell'ng in detail about tho happenings at. the meeting of the subcommittee of the. Committee on Ordinances of the Common Council of the C ty of Kchmond. We stand corrected as tc the exact wording of h.s proposed substitute for the pending ordinance, To be exact, he. believed that the solution of the alleged problem was for the Richmond author ties to pro vide motley to improve the streets and public facilities in the colored sections’ of this c ty. Then there would be no problem to solve. .. Mr. Jordan states that he is not a statistician or economist. Webster jdefiues the two as follows: 1 i . .Statistician,—One versed in or engaged in compiling statistics. ^ 1 Economist,—Any manager of af fairs especially one who manages concerns with frugality; one who expends or directs the expenditure of money, time, or labor jud ciously and without waste. We were under the impression that the well-known Richmonder was entitled to both of these desig nations. We are not in the position to dispute Hs positive declaration ‘‘I am not a statistician or econom ist,” so we again stand corrected In this respect. He is “level-headed” enough to know the proper designa tion for himself and associates. Certainly, we regard him as one of the most valuable citizens in this community. We base this upon our certainly have the right to so regard him without being taken to task for ow n personal observations and we so doing. Selah. Attorney McKenzie (Concluded from page 1) the officer. He is alleged to have ' remarked that the officer, must think himself the Kaiser. This an- j gered the policeman and he pro ceeded to humiliate the lawyer by techn'cally locking him up. UNUSUAL PROCEDURE. This is the first time that a person committing an offense in the virtual presence of the Court was not carr'ed to the .fudge presiding for such pun ishnient as he might see fit to in flict. In this case’ Lawyer McKenzie was within his rights. He is an of ficer of the Court and unless denied the right by the Judge has a right tc come and go in the court room. The officer was acting for the bailiff and he should have notified him of the situation for such action as lie might see fic to take. INTERESTING SITUATION. ..An interesting side to the situation :s presented when it is stated tuat Lawyer McKenzie is a devout Roman Catholic and was an ardent support er of “Al” Smith for Pres dent. It is rumored that he will take further steps in the matter. The over zeal ous officer found no supporters in his violation of the fundamental rules and usages in the legal pro cedure at the Police Court. A lead .ng white attorney came to Lawyer McKenzie s aid and readily went bus bond, while the mag strate showed his sympathy by making no charge for bail service. _ OASE NOT CALLED. Attorney C. A. McKenzie's case was not called in the Police Court lust Wednesday morning although it appeared on the docket as follows: ..“C. A. McKenzie, C. 3S Lawyer, Ya., 619 N. 5th St. Charged disor dtiiy .n basement of the City Hall. Wit. J. O. Pugli. By same and M. N. Bradley.” \ When the docket was concluded. Attorney McKenzie's friends led by one of the prominent w’hite attorneys approached Judge John L. Ingram and enquired as to the status of the case. H s Honor stated that he had told McKenzie tlilat he need not ap pear to answer the charge. It seems that the instructions had been given that only those summoned as wit nosses in cases should be admitted tq the court room, when as a matter of fact any one having business with the Court was entitled to enter. The officer had parried McKenzie across the street under 'arrest, when he should have brought him before the Ccurt... ...... JUDGE INGRAM’S DISAPPROVAL. Judge Ingram expressed plainly his disapproval of the whole pro ceedings and stated that he presumed that tho officer had not been long on the police force and that he was a recent appointee. The white at torney dweLt upon the humiliation, 4o which Attorney McKenzie had been subjected. When carried across the street, he was unceremoniously dragged over there and at times, h.s feet were not touching the ground. ..This concluded the matter for the time being, after which Attorney McKenzie and his friends went into a consultation. .. .« VIRGINIA—In the Law and Equity ..Court of the City of Richmond, the 15th day of December, 1928.
