iScenes at the special session of
the" Police Court last nijrht were of
'a nature calculated to set those
thinking whose duty it was to be
present. While a number of ne
groes, male and female, were ar
raigned oi\ charges of lascivious
conduct, or 6f beinj? menaces to the
health of the community, and who
were no means disconcerted, seve
ral white women, including: some
still in their teens, with downcast
eyes, "foamed out their own shame"
Some may be ruined for life by rea
son of their present condition, su

though they were, reaping what
they had sown, they excited the
sympathy of those whose duty it is
to .arrest'"such in their downward
course. iTwo of the cf&ored delin
quents carried infants in their arms
One of the delinquents, fourteen
years old, acknowledged to the court
that she had taken the wrong , step
in life and was still on the broad
road to destruction. Others, whose
sensibilities, have lonjr been blunt
ed, passed- through the ordeal with
?but little concern. , . .
Some of the details"Vm:connection
with the investigation were n^ot of
a naturo to be printed or alluded to,
'and the authorities, preferring to
'save those who inadvertently have
made false steps in life, took proper
measures lookinir to the rescue of
the unfortunates. Some sobbed pitc
ously when it was announced thai
heroic measures were necessary in
their cases, and one. after havine

her accusers, swooned and the
services of a physician were neces
