A WOMAN'S FIRM VISI7
70 JUDGE BROYLES’ COURT;
NEED OF MORE MATRONS
By MARY L. M’LENDON.
Very often I have been admonished
-n till* wts*. when Inveighing against
i'.m liquor traffic: “If you will lilt whis

I have thought thla advice might
apply to the law (It doea not to whla-

After wltneeelng the remarkable way
In which Judge Broytea dlapoaed of the

soon found that the chief did not agree
with me, but 1 waa not eurprlaed at
that. He la only a man and one brought

should be remedied at once, and thero

Only two young women were In the

In lift there were *08 whit* females
and 2,054 colored females arrested. The
chairman of the police committee as
sured me, however, that "only a faw
dirty drunken negro women are ever
arrested, and when they get sober we
(urn them loose and lat them go home."
Like Chief Jennings, he believed, and
said: "We don’t need a police matron.”
In 1805 there were 520 white and 1.811
colored females arrested. In ten yean,
you see. the number of women arrested
In one year Was Increased to 84*. In
the face of that fact we are told that
we do not need police matrons. Woman
Know that police matrons with the
same power, the same privileges and
the same pay should be In the Tower,
In the stockade and wherever women
and children arc detained.
There should be two at the police
headquarters so that ona could always
be on duty, and not make the hours so
long for one. and they ehould be paid
as well as the men (fcllcemen. Let
the women of Atlanta etand by their
matron and not listen to the evil things
sold about her. Some men want the
job, and. as In other line* of work,
they think the easy way la to malign
her character and she will leave In die-
gust and men will reap the reward.
