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
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
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
. .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.
(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.
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.
..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.
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
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. .. .«
