EDUCATION AND BOOKS VS. COMMON SENSEOne amazing feature of this deluge of books, and libraries, and educational funds, is the scarcity of really educated people. Everybody can write, and figure, and read and discuss trashy novels, but above the mean average of the great multitude of the “educated," few figures appear, and thoroughness in any one thing is a rarity. Witness the charming and beautiful young society lady, the pride of her rich parents and the center of admiration. She has just graduated from some conservatory of music. She performs with ease and grace and feeling, but set in front of her a semi-pretentious piece of music with which she is not familiar and observe the pitiful stumbling and the final abandoned effort to render it. It is the same in every department of knowledge—everybody knows a little of everything, but knows nothing thoroughly. Education is becoming more or less a curse to the country. Brains that nature intended should never be burdened with more than ...

6 VIRGINIA SALUTAMUS! Christened “Virginia” by the little daughter of Governor Montague, the ship destined to be the pride of the American Navy was launched at Newport News yesterday. —Daily Newspaper. The fairest of the sister States, The mother of a mighty land, Receives thee at her ocean gates And lays on thee her spotless hand— Virginia! The grand old State that pressed the brow Of tyrants in her scornful dust, Gives thee her name. Re this thy vow To never yield her sacred trust, Virginia I Rear this inscription on thy shield, And in thy heart; —and make it good,— “Virginia never left the lield Of honor, while one foeman stood.” Virginia! No coward e’er must tread the deck Of ship that bears such honored name; No foeman's lire must ever check Or dim the splendor of thy fame, Virginia! When in the lists thy gage is Hung, Re sure at whom that gage is hurled; Re not forgetful of tin* tongue That binds thee (o the Saxon world, Virginia! To lire thy soul if other need Than that proud...

THAT DARK CONSPIRACY IN COUNTY POLITICS Never was a political party more hard pressed for ammunition to conduct a campaign than the Straightouts of Norfolk county. The Straightouts appear to have an abiding faith in the total depravity of human nature, or at least that portion of it opposed to them. As inquisitors of men and methods, of intents and purposes other than their own, they are the grandest lot of holy-Willies that ever turned a deaf ear to the tempter. Posing as apostles of reformation, denouncing anything and everything connected with the opposition, their wailings and imprecations are loud in the land whose political offices they are so anxious to control for the benefit of the “dear people” and what they are pleased to term “decency.” r ihe radiations of holiness and injured innocence that stream incessant from the headquarters of the saintly brethren would soften the heart of a hungry hyena were his knowledge confined to but their side of the story. The latest develop...

Vol. I. No. 31 A Few Words to Retail Merchants Regarding Fentress Franchise Norfolk people, and particularly Norfolk merchants, are proverbially long-suffering - . Their passive acquiescence in and remarkable patience displayed for burdensome conditions is the marvel of progressive strangers who come amongst us. The Norfolk Railway and Light Co., which concern conducts the bulk of the street car business in this city and has a com plete monopoly of the lighting system, both in gas and electricity. has for years been operating with facilities inadequate for the service necessary. 'This has been demonstrated during the business hours of Saturday nights and during the holiday period, upon which occasions the lights have been as dim as though burning through a resistance coil. This, however, was not sufficient to rouse the merchants from their lethargy—it needed two distinct failures of the lights upon two consecutive Saturday nights to arouse indignation and set things moving. We since...

2 THE WISEST THING THE RETAIL MERCHANTS OF NORFOLK COULD DO WOULD BE TO GET SOLIDLY BEHIND THE FENTRESS FRANCHISE, W HIGH IS PRACTICALLY A HOME ENTERP RIS E. THE BULK OF THE PROFITS WOULD REMAIN IN THIS CITY, TO THE ADVANTAGE OF THE CITY. THE MERCHANTS AND THE PUBLIC ALIKE. PRACTICALLY A HOME ENTERPRISE, UNDER MUNICIPAL REGULATION, THE COMPETITION WOULD THEN BE AN UNTOLD BLESSING TO NORFOLK. The people of Norfolk have their eyes upon that progressive body known as the Retail Merchants, and also upon the city councils, and they look to them to secure to the city a competition that will relieve a burdensome situation and place it in the van of industrial progress. t German editors have recently been turning the nasty edge of their tongues outward and saying some mean things about your Uncle Samuel’s army. The “Limburger Weinerwurst” says that the United States army is rotten, poor and little, that it is ausgerspiel, bum, no good. etc. Donner vetter nach ein mahl! What’s the matter wit...

PORTSMOUTH ITEMS. : OUR PORTSMOUTH DEPARTMENT. : : Conducted by W. T. Pope, : And as we expected, the Saintly Brethren of the Straightout persuasion who have been shouting the loudest about salvation of the County, have announced themselves for the offices. These pious enthusiasts are of that kind who do not forget the practical things of life, and their grand rush for office is a cheerful and edifying spectacle. The question is—whether the county is in need of salvation, and if so are the Holy Willies equal to the emergency. The people must consider both points. The State Liquor Dealers Association met in annual session Tuesday morning at Hotel Lafayette, corner of Crawford and High streets, Portsmouth. The delegates to this association were a representative class of business men. and from the quiet and business-like manner of the conduct of their deliberations the impression was formed that everything was harmonious. The liquor dealers have it in their power to accomplish much tow...

Plain Street DEATH OF MU. CHARLES SHARP. A local newspaper editorially says that in the death of Mr. Charles Sharp “the city loses one of its most distinguished citizens, and the legal fraternity one of its brightest ornaments." We wish to say that the contemporary is in error, and that in the death of this supremely gifted man the city loses ils most distinguished citizen, and the legal fraternity its very brightest ornament. Mr. Choate, recent ambassador to the Court of St. Janies, and a personal friend of Mr. Sharp, whom lie frequently visited in the years gone by, said that in the course of all his experience he never met with a brighter intellect, or a more entertaining and lofty personality than that embodied in Charles Sharp, of Norfolk, Va. The value of such commendation will be apparent when the qu...

CRIME RAMPANT Princess Anne county has another brutal murder to add to its long and ghastly list. Another “handsome fellow of pleasing address, with a host of friends," as the newspapers are so fund of saying, has gone and run amuck, killed an inoffensive man and burned a barn belonging to his father. Davis, the murdered man, exhibited a spirit of the most remarkable charity, and before dying pleaded for leniency to the author of his death. This, however, should have no weight whatever with a jury who have the welfare of the county at heart, because the crime is against the people as well as against the victim. The distressing laxity of the law of this section in dealing with red-handed murderers is responsible for the fearful crimes that are of such frequent occurrence. In the case of John Dawley, already the usual plea of “temporary insanity" brought about by drink is being urged in extenuation of his brutal deed. We say the man who deliberately drinks himself into a condition of ...

6 MY SOI L. About the year 188 S litterateurs were stirred by the announcement of the discovery of a new poem signed by E. A. Poe and bearing, both in the handwriting and composition, all the characteristics of that distinguished poet. It was given wide circulation through the press, and its authenticity generally accepted until a searching Investigation by handwriting experts disclosed that an imposture had been attempted. R. H. Laughlin, a student of the University of Virginia, and at the time editor of the College Annual, claimed to have discovered the poem written in the back of an old Rollin’s History, a work which it was said had not been removed from its resting place since Poe’s time. When confronted with the evidences of spuriousness, the feigned discoverer admitted authorship of the verses, frankly stating that a “profitable sensation’’ had been the object of his clever imitation. The Professor of Literature of the University remarked that a man so gifted should keep on wr...

A SPLENDID SPECTACLE, AND A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY The people of Norfolk, and particularly the gentlemen of the Jamestown Exposition Company, have the opportunity of their lives. In a short time a magnificent squadron of British warships on a friendly visit to this country, will pass through our ocean portals on their way to Annapolis. They will be met by an equally fine squadron of United States vessels, and the meeting of these two powerful fleets upon the broad expanse of our regal Chesapeake bay is something to stir the blood, even in anticipation. Notified through the wireless station at Cape Henry of the approach of the British to the shores which were once their very own, the American ships will get under way and steam slowly across the bay to welcome them. The lookouts of both fleets will be busy aloft seeking the first sign of each other, upon revelation of which the two flagships will exchange signals of recognition and greeting. On a nearer approach this greeting will take a ...

Vol. I. No. 32. ROGUES AND RETRIBUTION. This much may be said for a nation governed by royalty and the titled classes, —that it presents for the most part a lofty ideal to which the common people may look up, a settled condition of affairs through which life pursues an even course, and maintains a towering standard of morality and purity in political life, which reaches even to the very policeman who walks his beat. Selecting the British Empire as the best representative of the monarchial form of government, we find that throughout this vast dominion corruption and graft, names so familiar to the American ear, are practically unknown. As a result cities and communities are better governed, human life is a more sacred thing, and morality and social life are generally held as of greater value than mere material riches. Nevertheless, despite these evidences, we have a profound faith in democracy and the American form of government. The American government is the best on earth! With the...

2 is without compunction shot to death. His only crime was cowardice and the fear of personal harm. He is a brave and honorable man beside the sneaking scamp who secures competence and position off the bartered liberties or privileges of his fellows. It may be considered a harsh suggestion, but we are strongly in favor of some such law as the following being passed by the state and national governments: WHEREAS, the crime of bribery or subversion of the powers of office constitute a grievous offence against the majesty of the law, and is the greatest menace to the liberties of a free people; BE IT PROVIDED that any individual holding office under the American flag, municipal, state or national, of any degree, from policeman to president, who shall be found guilty of accepting a bribe or of trafficing in his authority, shall be deemed guilty of SUPREME TREASON against the sovereign American people, and upon conviction thereof shall be publicly executed by hanging, and that the bodies...

PORTSMOUTH ITEMS. : OUR PORTSMOUTH DEPARTMENT. : Conducted by W. T. Pope. : We tender our readers this week an original piece of negro dialect humor after the style of Air. Frank Wing. We have taken one of Air. Wing’s characters for the reason that we had several cuts made for the illustration of his work during the short time he contributed to these pages. The Vir-ginian-Pilot, however, having its attention called to the peculiar talent of Air. Wing by the Free-Lance's exploitation of his work, doubled his salary—we are informed —with the understanding that he write for them exclusively. Fortunately, the Free-Lance has on its staff one Silas Wegg, a man of excellent humor, and upon whom it can rely in little emergencies like the foregoing. It is a satisfying consideration to note that in no department of newspaper or literary work can any newspaper in this city—bar none —leave the Free-Lance in the rear. Many of our readers insist, indeed, that none even approach it, but of course ...

THE ATHLETIC GIRL AND THE TRAGEDY OF A CELLULOID COLLAR. (In Three Acts.) Scene Ist. Charles Reginald Muchmouth, the rising and bushyheaded young barrister, is discovered in the seclusion of his room cleaning his celluloid collar with a cake of Sapolio. He suddenly rises, and with one long stride confronts the 47c. American plate mirror that adorns the room. He gazes long and earnestly in the attitude of one in profound thought. Of what is he thinking? We would never have known had he himself not broken the profound silence in his own deep falsetto voice. “At last!” he cried in the intensity of his emotion.— “at last the lovely Lucy Longreen is to be my very own! No more poverty, prunes and chuck steak for Charles Reginald! For has not that rich aburn-headed angel promised that this very night she will give the answer that will make her mine. Fate, thou hast done thy worst!” he hissed, as he took a halfhitch in his faithful suspenders. Scene 2nd. The lovely Lucy Longreen, in the sec...
