NATIVE CONTEMPT FOR AUTHORITY. White Men Handcuffed by Village Police. Native Prisoners Having a Good Time. [Newspaper Article] — Truth — 28 February 1914

NATIVE CONTEMPT FOR AUTHORITY. -White Men Handcuffed by Village Police. Native Prisoners Having a Good Time. t " Some months ago Mr. Brown, of Orangerie Bay. was knocked down bv a mob of natives, and three village constables handcuffed him. The cause of the trouble was the death of some inland native boys who had been re cruited, and had died on the planta tion from dysentery. Their mates went to the village constables and asked them to assist in securing the white man whom the boys thought was responsible for the deaths. Brown was only released under - threat of shooting by the manager of the plan tation. This high-handed action of the village police was looked upon by the natives as a sign of weakness on the part of the Government. About two weeks ago a magistrate went down to investigate—months after the outrage had been committed. This is the way things are managed at this end of the Possession. On January 17 Mr. Freeze was at tacked by over 30 natives on the ver anda of his hou...

THAT DARKTOWN TRAMWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Truth — 28 February 1914

I THAT DARKTOWH TRAMWAY. i , : Some months ago, ''Truth" afforded space for a cayenne-pepper criticism of that awful institution, the Beaumaris horse tramway. Of thoao remarks much public appreciation was expressed, hut if that hit-up of tho "Darktown rail way" was justified then, silence on the scandalous state of things that exists to-day in connection with this mori bund affair would be heinous in the public interest. In the first place, it is remarkable that tho Society for the Protection of Animals hasn't taken a trip to the route during the past month or two. Ever since the sweltering days of Christmas a state of affairs has existed that has evoked expressions of disgust aud indignation from tho general public aud the drivers of the hearses alike. The living skeletons that are flogged and boosted along iu an endeavor to pull the vehicles have frequently turned it up aa an evident alternative to falling dead on the* ! track.
