abstract
The printed word was his weapon, the courtroom his duelling ground. On March 1st, 1834, when Joseph Howe, editor of the Nova Scotian and champion of the reform, stood before a court on a charge of seditious libel, no lawyer dared defend him. So he defended himself and won a victory for freedom of the press.
