Before the “Growler” shall have appeared again the battle of the ballots will have taken place. It is timely to call the attention of those having charge of the primary that they shall see that it is conducted open and above board. Norfolk has had her notorious October steal, about which every man knows, and it will not do to have a repitition of that affair—we know that it would lead to serious trouble. Therefore we call upon the judges at the primary to se that every man’s vote is recorded as cast. The old cry that this is not a factional fight is all tommyrot, for the lines are drawn as tight today as when the party first split and when Bill Dey was affiliated with the men who are called anti-adminis-trationists. The so-called “good government” people have the majority of judges and cle...

2 high in this community as the “good government” crowd ever dared to. We observe that the grand jury has indicted Mayes, the “good government” election judge on a charge of having been implicated with Baldinger, alias Johnson in the First Ward forgery. Mayes should have been fired so soon as he was arrested. Mr. Purdie’s advice to the city committee “not to buck public opinion” fell on deaf ears. The “good government” party must take the consequences. We anticipated that the case of Baldinger would be put off until after the primary. IT PLAINLY SHOWS THAT THE GOOGOOS WERE AFRAID THAT BALDINGER WOULD SQUEAL AND THEY FEARED TO MEET THE ISSUE. THE MAN BACK OF THE JOB IS GOING TO BE SHOWN UP, AND THE SAINTLY BRETHREN THOUGHT THEY WOULD STAVE OFF THE IMPENDING CALAMITY AS FAR AS WAS POSSIBLE. In conclusion we wish the voters to bear in mind: THE OCTOBER STEAL. THE BALDINGER FORGERY. THE MAYES CASE. THE TOWNLEY SCANDEL. AND A FEW OTHER THINGS UNDER “GOOD GOVERNMENT.” VOTE FOR THE MEN WHO...

Philadelphia is the most rigidly governed city in the country and her ordinances are full of “morality,” yet Philadelphia is said to be the most officially corrupt city in the world, and in the matter of nuisances she is second only to Norfolk. Philadelphia is a town conducted with the idea that you can legislate morality into the people. It is conducted as far as possible on Sunday-school principles, and while these have been in operation, the city has produced as flourishing a crop of legislative criminals as might be found in many a Turkish province. Until such time as morality, and righteousness, and honesty, is drilled into the children in the home, we may never expect to find it in public life, and any attempt to impose upon adults that which they never learned in childhood, results only in making secret law-breakers who will devise ways and means to circumvent what they regard an infringement of personal liberty. Common-sense government should take cognizance of all these thi...

Box 887 RUSSIA NOT BEATEN. Without exception the editorial expression of the American press concerning the latest disaster to Russian arms is to the effect that Russia’s case is hopeless and that she must make peace upon any terms with the valorous islanders. It is really marvelous to note the shallow insight into world affairs possessed by the collective genius of the press. The New York “Sun,” or the “Mail and Express,” or some other sheet of national repute has but to advance an opinion, and parrotlike it is repeated with minor elaboration all the way down the journalistic line. Russia, they argue, has suffered two great land reverses, and overwhelming sea disaster, and in consequence Russia must sue for peace; must even pay an indemnity to Japan. The “Growler, as usual,” has to dissent from its lesser brethr...

HOW BEN JOHSON FOOLED HIS KIN FOLK In the matter of resourceful ingenuity in an emergency, a Newport News colored brother has endowed himself with a distinction not often achieved by ordinary mortals. It seems that Johnson —for that is his name—several years back married a dusky damsel of the city of Richmond and brought her to live in Newport News, where he worked on the docks of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad Company. Shortly after marriage Johnson discovered that his wife possessed some fourteen hundred relatives in the city of her birth, and with the advent of each excursion season they would flock down upon the meek and submissive husband for a day or so, taxing his resources in the w»ay of board and lodging beyond all ability. Johnson’s patience finally became exhausted, and after a family row that came near to severing the bonds of true love, a truce was declared between husband and wife to the effect that no more than three dozen of her relatives were to be entertained at ...

6 print. Our respected ex-mayor and president of the Chamber of Commerce is a nose squeezer of no mean ability. He has a good dog, too, we believe, but Waddill’s purp, we are informed, although the brute is a plain, common, everyday dog, has Mayo’s dog skinned a mile. The Growler would like to see another match arranged between the dogs and their owners — say, in the Academy lot, the proceeds to go for some charitable organization. Here's something for the Street Department, the Board of Health and the Police Department. The first is paid to keep the city clean, the second to protect its health, and the third to preserve order, keep down nuisances, and supplement the efforts of the two former. They should be intimately and harmoniously connected. Yet we frequently find them not supporting each other. Take, for instance, the matter of throwing trash upon the streets. There is an ordinance to this effect and a very proper one, yet we never hear of a case in court for violation of it. ...

have discovered that the paving of the slums with asphalt practically amounts to ending their career as slums, and a sample of this truth may be found in our own Talbot street, which has already become a semi-decent thoroughfare. Every asphalted alley makes for the advancement of the “City Beautiful,” first advocated by The Growler. One suggestion leads to another, and speaking of Talbot street, what an immense improvement could be made by taking down a portion of the corner of Main street and making this avenue equal to its greatest width. We would add a business street in a section where it is needed, and open up a fine thoroughfare from Main street backed in the near distance by the foliage and green prospect of the City Hall Park. It would immediately become a fine retail district, and the city would gain an hundred-fold for the expense incurred. Please think of this. OUR WANT COLUMN.

8 DR. OSLER’S CHLOROFORM SANITARIUM. Dr. Osier begs to announce to the general public that this Institution is for the benefit of persons who have outlived their usefulness. It is located in the suburbs of Brooklyn commanding a fine view of Greenwood Cemetery, and pleasantly situated on the route of the many funeral processions. Dr. Osier’s Institute offers exceptional opportunities and advantages for those who desire to depart this life in an orderly manner. Patients are first required to register, and having stated their pedigree and other information to the committee in charge, upon due and careful examination by the attending physician as to their general unfitness to remain any longer among the hustlers here below, they will be assigned quarters according to their means. A fine undertaking establishment is maintained on the premises, and patients can be fixed up according to their wishes and means. A special discount given to those patrons giving funeral order upon the day of e...

2 streets that it is possible to so improve, and to open streets that come to an abrupt termination. There are numbers of instances where this rectification could be accomplished at slight expense to the city, and the case that occurs at the moment is that of Plume street. From a rather obscure byway, this street has latterly become the scat of large improvements first set in motion by the erection of the postoffice. It has become a business center of commanding importance. We do not know if the site of the canal that used to front on Granby street is to be built upon, if so a short-sighted policy could have made no greater mistake. A continuance of this thoroughfare to the river, in addition to yielding an air circulation at all times needed in this section, would give an open avenue to the water front and a pleasant view of marine activity from the very heart of the retail center. At the other end of this same thoroughfare we find an abrupt termination in Church street, and within...

And a few waked up Wednesday morning to learn that they “also ran.” Baldinger, the forger man, will now have a chance to squeal. Comrade, squealin’ is better than a forced vacation. The telephone service of Norfolk, like “good” government, is on the bum. The telegraph companies have such a quick way of answering calls, it positively makes one dizzy. Comerade Jonesky looked weak before it was half over, Jonesky will have plenty timesky to recupcratesky. Possum Ferguson just couldn’t keep quiet in the sixth, ft was well he remained indoors after nightfall Tuesday. Wonder what Ryland and James G, think of it now.

The crushing defeat of Jesse O. Reid in the primary clearly demonstrated that the majority of the voters of Norfolk did not desire him as their clerk of the courts. The vote given Mr. Trehy demonstrated that the people were pleased at the conduct of the office which he has so ably filled, and it also showed that “good government” buttinskis were no longer wanted. Whereupon The Growler would advise Mr. Reid to retire to the extreme rear and be seated. Jesse O. Reid, be it remembered, is one of the shining lights of th “good had government” outfit, and if his defeat be a criterion —and there is every reason to believe it is—then there are a few others marked for slaughter. The election of “Bill” Dey, the supposed boss purificationist, does not indicate his strength by any means. The fine ...

HAIL! THE KNOCKERS. I am indeed glad to see that our local colony of Knockers are about to organize for resistance to the many schemes of progress and the presumptuous people who are constantly harrassing the community with such. I desire to hand in my name as a charter member. My enthusiasm is aroused. I want to be a “Knocker” And with the “Knockers” stand; A frown upon my forehead And a hammer in my hand. I hate this constant noise and confusion. A ship-yard scheme sets my nerves all adrift, and an exposition project agitates me so that my teeth break loose from their moorings. I have grown to be a lover of calm and contentment. I have dwelt in this haven of rest for six long years, and being a constant reader of the Public Ledger, a great repose anti tranquility like to that which permeates the Agricultural Department at Washington has come to be a part of my nature. I view with alarm the vaunted “activity” which some misguided people are encouraging. I believe a nuisance should ...

If you can get Robert to grow a beard it might afford you a little more shelter. “ ’Mid the Whiskers on His Manly Bosom” might be a good title for your proposed poem. SWIMMER : To enable you to sustain yourself on a long swim mix one pound of chopped walnuts with one pint of sour milk and eat hurriedly, wash this down with two quarts of ice water drank at one draught —this will make you buoyant. By adopting a chesty attitude you will be the better able to breast the waves. EARNEST WILLIE: Your opportunity to get rich quick has gone by. Yon should have joined the Public Ledger money hunt.

ECHOES FROM THE ELECTION. Soliciting the votes of the First Ward Democratic Club on last Monday, J. M. Broughton made a little talk in his own behalf for re-election to the position of Keeper of the Cemeteries. We were a little distance from the speaker, but we understood him to say in substance “that it was a grave subject upon which he wished to discourse.” In his profession he was called upon to deal exclusively with dead-heads, and that when once a voter came into his hands he was no longer useful in that capacity. He was therefore compelled to appeal to his friends on the outside, among whom he numbered the gentlemen before him. He informed them that he was digging graves for a living, and invited them to drop in when passing. He promised to do his best for all his friends, when they came his way. Possibly we have drawn a little upon our imagination in reporting Mr. Broughton’s speech, but this is what we thought he said. Perhaps the hit of the night was made hy Robert T. Fergu...

8 PROPOSED CHIME OF BELLS FOR NORFOLK. The Growler's suggestion of a chime of fine hells for the Jamestown Exposition, to subsequently remain as a monument commemorative of that event and the landing of the first settlers, has created no end of favorable discussion in this city, and the general opinion is that it is the most unique scheme yet suggested. l T pon a recent trip of the board of directors of the exposition to Vorktown this suggestion became the subject of discussion, and was unanimously indorsed by every one present, and we state authoritatively that the matter is very likely to be taken up by these gentlemen. A Western newspaper has since very properly called attention to the fact that of all the expositions held in this country, not one has included a monument to pass to future generations as commemorative of the event for which they were held. The Centennial, the World’s Fair, the Louisiana Purchase, and all of them, have passed and left nothing substantial behind. It...

VOL. I. No. 15 WHERE IS HEEL? Being tHe First of a Series of Lay Sermons by “ The Growler,” From all accounts that come down to us, the subject of our sermon is not a cheerful place; the climate is torrid in the extreme and the summer resorts are located at impracticable distances. Some people think that Hell is on this earth and that we get our share of it during life. This is doubtless a mistake, for while there are places in the world that closely resemble Hell they are simply suburbs that have acquired certain of its conditions and characteristics. The most picturesque and cheerful account of this interesting place has been given us by Dante, who took a great personal risk by making a trip there to gather information for our benefit. That very few people believe Dante is evident from what we see about us. Mr. Carnegie may have a dim consciousness of the truth of his revelations, for he is about the only man in the world strenuously striving to give his money away. An implicit fa...

2 amount of investigation we bring to bear upon the subject. One thing certain—and a very striking consideration it is—is that in proportion as a disbelief in a place or condition of future punishment prevails, Hell comes into the world, as was exemplified in the days of the French revolution and at other periods of human history. Hell is about the only thing that is conceived in its own disbelief and reared upon its own doubt. If reason has a right to a belief in anything at all, it has every right for belief in a place of future punishment. Man’s life and destiny is the mystery that has engaged the minds of the greatest intellects in all ages, but it is God’s mystery, and for that reason man’s labor is in vain, and ever must be while he is under the veil of mortality. For some unknown reason, this world appears to be the penal colony of the universe wherein we are souls seeking release. We know that life is by no means complete, and that suffering and misery largely predominate; t...

and —as has been frequently done in several cases which we know of —force up the rents by offering more for the stands of their neighbors. We heartiy indorse the authorities for suppressing places of this character, and believe they will find several others in the community very much worse than the BonTon is alleged to be. FAIR PLAY FOR ALL In the person of Mr. R. B. Fentress, the proprietor of the Cold Storage Works and promoter of numerous other business enterprises, we have a type of citizen who stands for the best interests of the community and the individual welfare of every citizen. The man who bends his energies to lessening the burdens of the people, and adding to their comfort and convenience, is a man to be encouraged at all times and upon all occasions. Our social fabric is built upon competition in its every branch and department, and the very worst handicap that can be imposed upon a people is to curtail or stifle it in any manner.

It all depends upon the star performer, O. M. Baldinger, alias Johnson, who stands convicted of forging the names of anti-administration voters to fake transfers in the First ward, and who was sentenced to two years in prison. The prisoner’s lawyers asked Judge Hanckel for a new trial, and at this writing Judge Hanckel has the matter under advisement. “The Man Higher Up!” This has a meaning that is more significant than the average mind grasps. In a case like Baldinger’s, the “man higher up” strikes at the very fundamental principles of liberty, since had Baldinger, the tool, been successful, six men would have been deprived of their highest right—that of ...
