I Steventon, Exuma, Aug. 7th, 1915, THINGS WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW. Isit lawful for the Commissioner to criticise the people brought before him at the bar to such an extent as to call the women at Steventon "mare horses ?" 1 his happened in the court at Stevi oton on the 4th day of August 191 5, and he called it out the top of his voice in —r, presence of over one hu#J^, ( | and fifty souls. The people are vef v ||R|r|| grieved at the Commfj ss [ oner %  ip^lW 1 I'M neve, has it been known in this age or any other for there to be two footed "mare horses;" if he had any respect for his women folks, be it lawful or not he would not speak in this way. Is it lawful that the Commissioner should permit certain people to behave in court in a' manner bordering on contempt while others are huffed and insulted at every turn and made to respect the court to the letter. Our Commissioner is most over bearing, this is not the first time things like this have happened; we can't stand his rule much longer. Please Mr. Editor tell me if this is Law or Justice.

THINGS WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW.
Isit lawful for the Commis-
sioner to criticise the people
brought before him at the bar
to such an extent as to call
the women at Steventon
"mare horses ?" 1 his hap-
pened in the court at Stevi o-
ton on the 4th day of August
191 5, and he called it out
the top of his voice in r,
presence of over one hu#J^,(|
and fifty souls.
The people are vefv ||R|r||
grieved at the Commfjss[oner
ip^lW 1 I'M neve,
has it been known in this
age or any other for there to
be two footed "mare horses;"
if he had any respect for his
women folks, be it lawful or
not he would not speak in
this way.
Is it lawful that the Com-
missioner should permit cer-
tain people to behave in court
in a' manner bordering on
contempt while others are
huffed and insulted at every
turn and made to respect the
court to the letter.
Our Commissioner is most
over bearing, this is not the
first time things like this have
happened; we can't stand his
rule much longer.
Please Mr. Editor tell me if
this is Law or Justice.
Yours triil-
