The Lewes bonfire boys fully demonstrated their right at Tuesday evening`s carnival to be regarded as law abiding citizens. They carried out their display in excellent style and nothing occurred during the proceedings, as far as they were concerned, to call for intervention on the part of the police authorities.


At one time the the introduction of constables from neighbouring towns was regarded with great disfavour, but public opinion has in many quarters veered round to quite an opposite direction, it is now recognised that the stalwart members of the Brighton force, in their well fitting uniforms and smart helmets ornamented with silver knobs and chains, add quite an air of  importance to the processions.

The policemen as a matter of fact are as good as a hundred extra members in fancy dress.
