ably mark the celebration in the mem

ity. Kmmt't wan born In Doublln just
KI3 years ago to day , but the princi

A general boUcf that the movement
for which Emmet gave up his llfo Is

of Brooklyn Hibernians , under the
auspices of Clnn-na-Gael , and similar
demonstrations will bo held In Man
hattan and the Bronx.
During the week the Long Island
countryside has been emblazoned with

Miss Mabel Tnllnferro , who Isn't
n "miss" at all , but the wife of Fred
erick C. Thompson , the theatrical
manager , is to experiment with a
"trial divorce , " according to friends
of the couple. Miss Tallaferro has
engaged passage for Europe , sailing
the twentieth of this month , and will
remain a year , in order that she and
her husband may have time to con
sider whether they wish to bo per
manently divorced. They have been
married four years , the ceremony hav
ing been performed after a courtship
of two weeks. Both Mr. Thompson
nnd Miss Tallaferro are of exceeding
ly nervous temperaments , and this ,
say their friends , gave rise to differ
ences leading up to the proposed sep
aration and "trial divorce. "

the time of his life , and at that
saved 68 cents for expenses on the
homeward trip. The Pensacola mer

other public places , rode on the "sub"

proper intervals and errected flags ,

out breaking the lines. Many ladies ,

the lowest , meanest and most con

eggs were thrown nt him. While no

paid for doing It. Professor Darling

What on earth is this town going to

Mayor Friday Simply Lied.
Mr. Friday Is determined to cling
to the office of mayor , even If ho haste
to He to do It.
Just why Mr. Friday is so eager to
retain his clutch on the job has not
yet been satisfactorily explained , but
he apparently believes that by attack ,
ing Norfolk Industrie and lying about
them , he can help boost himself back
into the Job which he seems to like
eo well , for a fourth term.
In his anxiety to retain his office ,
Mr. Friday has publicly lied about
The Huse Publishing Co. , apparently
hoping to create a sentiment that
might counteract some of the facts
The News Is going to print about him.
Hi > has also publicly attacked other
industries nnd business men.
In open council meeting in his ca
pacity as mayor , Mr. Friday said The
Huse Publishing Co. was a tax shirker
and in his published letter he says
"the Huge family arc not paying one-
tenth what they should pay" ( In
taxes ) .
As a matter of fact , "the Huses"
paid $421.65 taxes into the treasury of
Madison county last year , which all
fair minded men will agree was a
pretty liberal share toward maintain
ing the county business , including the
lawless expenditure of city money at
the instance of the mayor.
Just why Mayoi Ts-iday should so
maliciously attack an industry which
employs more people and pays out
more money in wages each year than
any other local enterprise , is difficult
As to his charge that the Hose Pub
lishing Co. shirks Its taxes , It Is ob
vious that Mayor Friday simply lied.
His &Uack on The News was in line
with the vicious spirit he displayed
toward a new industry , the Norfolk
Chemical & Oil works. In his pub
lished letter he backs down , declaring ,
"I have not a wqrd to say against this
industry in its present location. " It
is well that he hasn't. That doesn't
erase his spiteful slurs cast upon the
enterprise in his harangue to the
council , when he continually referred
to this new factory as a "grease box. "
He says he hasn't "knocked" this new
industry. Perhaps politicians told
him he had macje another blunder.
But if Mr. Friday doesn't call it a
"knock" for the mayor of a city , in a
speech to the council , to slightingly
refer to a factory as "a grease box , "
then we don't know what the word
Clearly enough , to counteract this
political blunder , the mayor is merely
Mayor Friday attempts to discredit
the public spirit of The News and its
publishers. In open council meeting
and in a signed letter that he has
caused to be printed , he insinuates
that The Huse Publishing Co. refused
to donate to the fund for buying a
site for the Norfolk Chemical & Oil
factory , the new industry which he
tried to drive out of town. He says
he subscribed to this fund and asks :
"Did Mr. Huse ? "
Mr. Huse certainly did. The Huse
Publishing Co. was one of the first
firms to subscribe to this fund. May
or Friday , now bragging over his do
nation , forgets to say that he at first
flatly refused to give one cent toward
this new Norfolk industry's site , and
that he did not subscribe until busi
ness men bad pleaded with him time
after time and that he only did it then
for political reasons. Just why Mr.
Friday has seen fit , in Ma official ca
pacity as mayor , to say that the pub
lishers of this paper did not subscribe
to that fund , IB not quite clear. .
The fact remains , however , that Mr.
Friday has simply lied about It.
In open council meeting Mayor Fri
day declared that Mr. Huso did not
subscribe to last summer's race meet
The Huso Publishing company has
never yet refused to subscribe to any
public fund of this sort , and It not
only subscribed but paid its share of
the shortage last summer , as it always
had In the past.
Again Mr. Friday , using his position
as mayor to assail a private Norfolk
industry , has simply lied.
Mr. Friday denies that he meant to
attack the Commercial club in his
council meeting harangue. If he is
afraid to stand upon his insinuating
assault upon the present Commercial
club , why is it that , although ho Is
mayor of the city , he refuses to belong -
long to the Commercial club ? Why
does he refuse to pay 50 cents n
month , as a business man , to support
this organized effort to make Norfolk
grow ? What kind of a mayor have
we , that is of such small calibre nnd
so lacking in public spirit for the good
of' the town in which ho lives , that ho
refuses to join with other business
men in promoting the city's interests ?
If Mr. Friday Is not an enemy sf the
Commercial club , why doesn't ho join
Apparently Mr. Friday Is so bent
upon retaining that job of his , and
