2 Hot Off the Reel. Thieves Active Again; Two Robberies Last Night.”—Ledger headline. We would like to know when the thieves have not been active. Those police beats have again been changed. Mallory has been making his nocturne! rounds and he couldn’t find a cop. The shifting process should be kept up. Maybe the police will yet catch some of those robbers. And up goes the prices at the local theatres. A dollar and a half for the first three rows at Dockstader's minstrels. And all because of that naughty oridnance regarding the aisles. These C ity Councilmen are always meddling with somebody’s affairs. Why not let the aisles and passageways remain crowded ? All would be safe in the event of a panic. An energetic conductor, who perhaps needed the money, caused the arrest of a passenger on a car for expectorating on the floor. The company will probably pay the “con” his five in gold for the meritorious service. Are all of the conductors paying attention to the ordinance? Ah, that is th...

Halstead would like to be High Constable Guy’s righthand man. Isn’t Halstead that now? Doesn’t he serve on all the coroner’s juries and aren’t the jurors summoned by Guy, and don’t Halstead conduct nearly all of the high constable’s auction sales? Good people, Guy is one of the shining lights of the “good government” outfit. Will this coroner’s jury trust ever be broken up? Why don’t the high constable summon different men for every inquest; give all of the citizens a show. Why confine it to a certain crowd? Is the answer forthcoming? The Growler wishes to announce that during the past week its photographer caught a few of the Lizzies who line up at the corner of Main and Atlantic streets —the cattle who ogle the women and make various remarks. The pictures are “beauts.” We shall shortly produce them. See if you will recognize any of the addle-pated individuals whom the “good government” policemen refuse to move. The pictures are in the hands of The Growler’s artist. You’ll want to ...

five; to be not less than 5 feet, inches tall and weigh not less than 140 pounds. Chief Boush can’t make good. Mallory is not tall enough and he lacks the weight. And there are so many others. Of course it is entirely possible that the men on the force now artgoing to be retained, while future applicants will have the hard row to hoe. What a beautiful and symmetrical department we will have when Sterling’s rules are applied. One man five feet four and another six feet three; one man weighing 375 (Hampshire) and one man weighing 95 (Seay). Here’s another gem. Throw your optics on it: “The newly appointed officer shall be required to appear before the board and shall answer questions relating to the location of public buildings, railroad depots, city ordinances and the State laws and the duties of a police officer.” Doesn’t Mayor Riddick and his commissioners know that when Captain Tommy Dalton was doing the questioning act in the assembly room at headquarters that one green policeman...

6 robbed to their hearts’ content and the bagnios ran full from sun to sun, and while the carriages rolled up to the gilded palaces of vice. Don’t the Mayor and the Chief of Police and all of the coppers on the force know the location of the swell houses, two of which, it is said, have been run almost within the shadow of the police station on Queen street? Are they acquainted with the women who have, it is claimed, been doing a thriving business? Do not the authorities know of the traffic that has been and is said to be still going on in these gilded palaces of sin? It may be true that some of the farmer policemen have never heard of Smith street, but is there a policeman who has been on the force for any length of time that does not know the existence of these places? Does the Chief of Police, who has been so active in harassing the poker men, know of these places? If he does not he is not fit to be chief; if he does and has been permitting this traffic to go on, then he should be...

their dollars, and are immediately given credit for everything in sight—and smilingly take it. They are the oracles of a subsidized press, and the shallow observations of the “Hon. Mr. Moss-Back” are heralded forth as the wisdom of the community. Of acute cunning and superficial attainments, thev are unable to realize how naked they stand to the piercing eye of honesty. Nor must it be supposed that the old and middle-aged alone make up the ranks of the moss-backs; not at all; some of the most pronounced and dyed-in-the-wool specimens are men far this side of the meridian of life, mere youths, whose trickery and moneyloving propensities have given them a certain authority in the community, an authority always asserted on the side of grab, greed and oppression. They are always strict church and Sunday school chaps, and these institutions are not the better for their membership. Where public spirit means dollars (for themselves) they are very public spirited; but where real public spir...

8 Those Street Obstructions. The Ledger, of the vintage of ’76, had a “piece"’ in its columns recently to the effect that Mallory, head of the police department, was going to “look into” the street obstructions. And now comes Mallory, through the Ledger, and he’s said to be going to “confer” with the city attorney about those obstructions. When*the “Ledger man"’ called on the chief of police, the “Ledger man” was turned down. “The chief declined positively to talk,” according to the “Ledger man.” Well, they sav that sometimes it is better to talk too little than to talk too much. We await with breathless expectancy what Mallory is going to do about it. He knows that the sidewalks are being monopolized by merchants and others in the wholesale and retail districts. Might as well put the ordinances in the furnace than not to enforce them. And can the chief mention some of the ordinances that are not being enforced? If he can't, then he’s no chief —certainly not in our eyes, and certain...

2 The vagrant crusade by the police proved a frost. If the cops would only begin a crusade against the corner loafers and the sidewalk expectorators! “Good Government” Justice Blick accepted a straw bond at the police station. It would seem to be up to Blick to cough up. Standard Oil man was robbed in the West, according 1 to the press dispatches. Glad to hear it; it’s the first instance of the Standard Oil being robbed. Things have been just the reverse. Hasn’t the Standard Oil been doing all the robbing? Ask the kerosene consumers of Norfolk. Rev. J. K. Jollifif. of Portsmouth, asks that a civic league be formed over there. Portsmouth needs one, judging by the exposure of vice which appears to have been rampant in that town. When the civic league is formed we would suggest that it investigate the numerous jail breakings and attempts at jail deliveries. There’s something rotten in the government of Portsmouth. Might be that good govefnment is heading that way. Coming events are sup...

ship. Mr. Dey recently urged the First Ward “Good Government” Club to pay their poll taxes. He knows a good thing. B,ut will they pay? The Portsmouth police are making raids almost every other night. They are raids in name only, for they have proven waterhauls. The crap shooters and the card men got wise before the coppers woke up. Pity the Portsmouth police didn’t know that gaming has been going on in that town 10, these many months. The finance committee of the Councils has disapproved an appropriation for building a new market house in place of the one that burned. Quite right. How can we pay all of those damage suits resulting from broken sidewalks and have a new market at the same time. Better leave the sidewalks as they are rather than expend the money so foolishly in building a new market. Tush, tush. “Loafers Loiter Here” is the sign stuck up in front of a building on Atlantic street, opposite the postoffice. If the loafers would only loiter there it would be all right. If t...

Well, The Growler seems to have made a hit in Norfolk, Portsmouth and Berkley, notwithstanding the terrible predictions of the fossils, superannuated critics and the city’s knockers. Dire things were forecasted and we really thought that some of the hypocondriachs might attempt to hold up some of our newsboys and secure an injunction restraining the sale of The Growler at the news stands. We beg to announce that we came through with flying colors; that we are unscathed and that we are right side up with care. There are in every community a set of people who haven’t enterprise enough to keep them awake, and anything new and novel attempted brings forth the branding iron. The knocker and the critic we will always have with us. We take him humorously because he is harmless. His ton...

which desired to air the personal grievances of the writers; some were communications which were fit for the gutter, while others bore on topics which we shall take up later. As we anticipated, old man “Well Wisher” had his little say in a note to The Growler. We appreciate the spirit of his letter and will, of course, take his advice. A NEW CHIEF NEEDED The Growler believes that the time has come when Norfolk needs a new Chief of Police. Chief B'oush has proved a failure, and this has been demonstrated by the state of demoralization which exists in the department. There is no head, in fact, to the police department, and the people, consequently, are the sufferers. Chief Boush is said to be toally incompetent. We can only say from what the officers themselves state, and that it that the department today is in a worse state of demoralization than it has been for a dozen years. Instead of having proved a disciplinarian, the chief has almost completely disorganized the force, so it is ...

Wc believe, as we said in the beginning, that the Police Board should make a change in the head of the department. Boush, the Military Man And now comes the rather astonishing news that our gallant Chief of Police, not content with the laurels he has already gained in his short career as head of the force, desires to add that of military glory also. Having in view the contingency of a Japanese invasion or a Berkley raid he wants the members of our “finest” to do the “hep, hep, hep—right oblique, doublequick,—charge—STlCK ’EM ! act, in a manner creditable to the martial city they represent and to himself. He thirsts for brass bands, the rattle of shifting rifles, the measured tramp of grim and ferocious warriors, and the cheers of an inspired populace.

8 Norfolk and Constantinople Yes, Willie, Constantinople once led the world in dogs, but that city is only second-best now. Norfolk gave her a hard pull for many years, but in spite of the divinity that doth hedge the Turkish cur, we have succeeded in getting to the front. There are canines enough in Norfolk to make the world howl. There are poodles enough to give the whole Russian army a square meal. There are sufficient mongrels to break the ranks of the Japanese and retrieve Port Arthur. Pointers are so plentiful that a stranger does not know which way to turn. Every nigger baby keeps a dog and its mammie keeps two. In certain sections of the city the conglomeration of curs and sons of curs meet nightly to make the welkin ring, and such meetings are a howling success. The policemen who live in these sections sleep on their beats in other sections, they get no chance at home—poor things. There are few people in Norfolk not owned by some dog. It’s a poor dog that can’t own one man....

2 LITTLE GROWLERS. The Salvation Army has struck town! They will establish an agency here for their newspaper, the “War Cry. A prominent man about town is to get the position ot Sporting Editor. The eye-level of a statesman is all right—all right; but the level eye of the man behind the gnu is what does the business. Since the Ledger passed into new hands the dear old Landmark is the grand-mama of journalism in Tidewater. The Landmark is a grand old lady and very earnest, too. She means what she says and is mean enough to say anything, bless her heart! What is the difference between a Norfolk office-holder and the new candidate? Send answers to the Growler. Secretary Hay has sailed for sunny climes to recuperate. He believes in making Hay a well man while the sun shines. The Spring poets are not off yet, they’re waiting on the Virginian-Pilot to give the signal.

“Citizen” complains to the Dispatch about a filthy lane occupied by one Porkopolis as a bootblack stand whose shack, ’tis said was put up without a permit. “Citizen” says that he has complained to Chief Boush, the health board, the chief of the fire department and to Frank Lewis, the real “street inspector,” and wants to know “what’s to be done about it?” We presume nothing. Citizens and others are again permitted to use the sidewalk in front of the old Opera House. Substantial progress. If Patrolman Knapp is as good at target practice as he is at killing coons, he’d make a first class instructor in the police military school. Billy Dey resigns chairmanship of city committee “temporarily.” Ned Gorman resigns from committee ditto. Hee Haw! Mr. Sterling won’t resign as police commissioner. He’s in the race for treasurer. He says he won’t use the police force to further his candidacy. The eyes of the people are upon you, Mr. Sterling. Remember your declaration. If Patrolman Mcßride don...
