Page 5 [Newspaper Page] — The Growler — 24 June 1905

A DINING ROOM DISTURBANCE. With the exception of Miss Pauline and her young man upstairs in the parlor, the household had retired. The cracked French Mirror started the racket when it remarked with a depressing sigh that it often had occasion to reflect upon the vanity of human nature. “Nevertheless, you’re not all you’re cracked up to be,” observed the Pillow —which had somehow found its way into the dining room —“for while folks just stare at you, they tell me all their secrets.” “Oh, you’re full of feathers, and you don’t belong down here, anyhow,” retorted the Mirror. “Much of your wisdom, good friends, is gained through my light on the subject,” angrily chimed in the Lamp. “My! but you’re so easly put out, don’t cher know,” ventured the English steel Knife. At this the Ice Pick from Connecticut waxed very wroth and testily cried, “You’re a sharp little cuss, but you cut no ice with me,” and once more the English were put to rout. “I see no reason for this unseemly wrangle,” mil...

6 The Growler is glad to note that Norfolk is about to recover a very estimable gentleman in the person of Rev. H Benmosche, the former rabbi of Beth-El Synagogue. It is rumored that Mr. Benmosche has had a call to the pulpit of BraiIsrael Synagogue, on Cumberland street. This congregation is wise in its selection, for Mr. Benmosche is a gentleman who commanded the respect of all classes of our citizens regardl ;>s of creed. He is the founder of one of the most beneficent ch uitable associations in the city, and it was no uncommon thing when funds were low for Mr. Benmosche to give liberally and cheerfuly from his own scanty means. Neither Jew nor Christian ever appealed to the assistance of Mr. Benmosche in vain. If the man needed a job, Mr. Benmosche’s hat was on in a minute, and by personal influence and solicitation he placed his man. Paradoxical as it may seem, this Jewish rabbi was one of the best exponents of practical Christianity we have ever known, and any commu...

We did try to clean ’em out last year, but ’taint no use, they comes right back agin.” Our friend has now adopted the plan of carrying along with him a pound of insect powder, with which he makes a cordon around himself upon retiring. He says the treatment is bad for the health, but it is the only method he can devise for saving himself from the attacks of legions of filthy vermin. The gentleman claims very justly, as we know from personal experience, that there are no dirtier, nastier people in the world than those who in the two state aforesaid catering to the traveling man. Norfolk also has its share. ONCE MORE—AS TO THE GROWLER The lay mind has little conception of the difficulties encountered in the putting out of even so small a paper as The Growler.

8 GOOD MAN IN A GOOD PLACE The Growler wishes to compliment the voters of Norfolk upon their selection of Mr. James F. Duncan for the position of City Attorney. The great professional ability and sterling qualities of this gentleman cannot fail to give tone and force to the city’s political life, and that its best interests will be well taken care of goes without saying. Mr. Duncan is one of our liberal, large-minded men whose presence is an inspiration and whose smile is like a burst of sunshine. That smile has been quite a feature of his counten- ance lately. We had the pleasure of hearing Mr, Duncan’s address at a recent campaign gathering; it was by long odds the best and wittiest of the series. This might be expected of a man in a profession requiring the gift of oratory, but Mr. Duncan has command of an eloquence very far above the average lawyer. Added to commanding presence and complete control of the English language, he possesses the power of compressing thought in the sma...

Ii ryi II bj ■ J "I Ikll Vol. I. No. 16. THE OCTOPUS vs. THE PEOPLE. It is indeed aggravating to contemplate the condition of apathy in regard to municipal management that has existed and still exists in most American cities. The people, in a majority of cases seem content to hear their burdens without a murmur, and it is not until the oppressors forget all hounds of decency and attempt to actually tyrannize over the community, that the people get busy and fight for their rights. A general uprising takes place, and when the accounts are balanced there is usually a big credit upon the side of the people. Who would have ever thought of the sleepy old town of Philadelphia waking up and going after the bosses there, lighting them tooth and nail, showing them no quarter, and winning out at every turn? True, it required the public display of minature hangman's nooses to influence this result, hut when those little emblems appeared upon the coat lapels of a thoroughly aroused and indignant...

2 keep the streets near its tracks in repair. Is this done? Mightn’t the councils investigate? Take a look at the company’s city cars. Up to last winter the summer cars with their canebottomed seats did service. When old Jack Frost made his appearance the windows were replaced in the refrigerators and, presto! we had “winter cars.” And no heat in them! Professor Hathaway said that it wasn’t healthy to have heat in the cars because the runs were so short and heat was not necessary. Tush, tush! Mightn’t the council take up this matter in the interest of the people? Cars on other lines have heat, why not the cars of the Norfolk Railway and Light company? Unsanitary? Oh, fudge! They do say that it was stipulated in the franchise of the octopus that if it failed to run its cars any day for a certain length of time the franchise would be forfeited. Didn’t the company forfeit that franchise during the strike? Might’nt the council look into the matter? The Norfolk City Gas company is said t...

A WELL-MERITED CASTIGATION. Thomas Dixon, author of “The Leopard's Spots,” “The One Woman,” and other literary abortions, received about the best that is due to him through the columns of “The Presbyterian Standard,” of Charlotte, N. C, in its issue of June 21st. Under the caption “A Northern Gentleman and a Southern Cad,” the “Standard” subjected Dixon to a roast and scalding that is liable to serve him for the balance of his natural life. The Growler wishes to heartily congratulate its North Carolina contemporay for its fearlessness and its rare good judgment. We believe that if there ever was a literary charlatan and palpitating vulgarian it is this same Tom Dixon, We quite agree with “The Standard” when it says that in the person of the author of “The Clansmen,” “Southern journalism has touched about the lowest plane to which it has ever yet descended. As representations of Southern life, his books are the crudest travesty. The courting scenes are enough to make a lady writhe an...

COLOR LINE AND INTERNATIONAL AMENITIES Out of the most insignificant happenings or trifling incidents are often born the giant problems of the future. When the cruel cupidity of a Dutch skipper led him to take on a cargo of slaves for the American colonies, he little knew that he was planting the seed of an evil that would result in the loss of thousands of brave lives, and subsequently threaten the fair destiny of a mighty nation. Life indeed hangs upon a trifle and destiny turns at a chance. The wiles of a woman have caused the dismemberment of an empire, and the mouthings of a fool has set back the progress of the world. If it is necessary for man to be guarded in his speech, it is doubly necessary for him to be guarded in his actions. There is a time to talk and a time to act, but the folly of the fool consists in doing both at the wrong time. It was the wrong time to draw the color line when at a certain Hotel Neddo of this city several officers, representative of onr great sis...

6 through our streets. It would have afforded a spectacle of educational contrast and pleasure for ourselves, momentarily changed the awful monotony of our lives, and tickled the pride of these people. Instead of this, they were permitted to roam aimlessly about town without even a guide, and the only smiles they received were when, after pay-day, they wandered in the different stores to spend their money. We are not advocates of social equality. On the contrary, we believe the bonds should be tightened in the maintenance of white racial purity and supremacy. We recognize the fact that the negro is a distressing problem in this nation, and we are firm in the opinion that it would be anTmtold blessing if the great bulk of them could be transplanted somewhere else. We believe .in drawing the color line tighter and tighter here at home, but we believe that the welfare of the nation requires a discretionary liberality when dealing with people from other parts, and a relaxation of our na...

LITTLE GROWLERS. Those persons who are after cold storage might apply to the Norfolk Railway and Light company. Their winter cars are just the things. The goo-goo brethren are still wondering where they are “at,” Mayor Riddick denies the report that heis going to resign. He’s got the job for four years, so wot’ tell. The Dispatch says that an effort will be made to revive the “good” government movement. If it should be revived let’s have real good government, not the spurious kind that we have been treated to. A dangerous practice to which the police department has paid no attention is the allowing of smal shopkeepers to leave coal oil lamps rest on show cases and shelves all night, and in many instances in stores over which families sleep. This is one thing that Chief Boush might look into. Some of these nights there’s going to be a costly conflagration. Fire Chief Kegebein might also investigate this complaint. The latest feature of life down town at night is the appearance of hor...

li B pi r I. luJii Vol. I. No. 17 THE GREAT NORFOLK PHILANTHROPIST. Of course nobody is permitted to see the books of the Norfolk Railway and Light Company, the concern which furnishes Norfolk with street car service at five cents straight, and a poor variety of illumination at the highest rate possible to impose upon a passive public. This concern is the beneficiary of a number of valuable franchises obtained in the palmy days before the recent State legislation stipulating the future sale of such to the highest bidder. Unfortunately for the public benefit that might be derived from this legislation, the Norfolk Railway and Light Company with its practically unlimited means and strangle grasp of the situation, can always constitute itself the highest bidder and hence always maintain its octopus hold upon the community it pretends to serve. Among other perquisites of this concern we have the City Park, located at such a distance from the city that none of the citizens can reach it w...

2 sion to the people from whom they derive their immense revenue, they will soon he able to use the street cars of this city three times for ten cents. \ his rate would work no hardship upon the Norfolk Railway and Light Company. It would simply lessen the amount of money sent monthly out of the city to individuals for whom we don’t care a rap and who care still less for us. Should the Williams’ Syndicate find it impossible to operate their street cars at this rate, let them in that event sell the plant to the city of Norfolk and the writer of this article will give his services at a reasonable salary to show how it can be done and done well. The Williams’ Syndicate could make a twenty per cent, reduction on all of its services and still be able to pay the large salaries to its owners which doubtless abnormally swells its present expense account. Its field is unlimited and it has ample opportunity of getting revenue. If necessary one branch might be made to supply the deficiency of ...

head of the raiding party, with the offense. The daily newspapers assert that this privilege was indignantly refused Lintz by the Justice of the Peace. We are not inclined to believe that the chief or any of his raiding party took Lintz’s money, but that is not the point. The point is that Lintz made the charge and demanded a warrant, and that the justice assumed the peculiar stand that the Chief of Police was, on account of character and position, immune to the charges of an alleged gambler. On this point Mr. Hannah constituted himself judge, jury and counsel all in one. We rise to inquire by what divinity is the Chief of Police hedged about that a Justice of the Peace should refuse a citizen a warrant against him? Is the demand for the arrest of an American Chief of Police come to be a case of “leze majesty”? According to the attitude and ruling of Mr. Hannah it appears to be so, but we think the general public will not agree with him on the point. We want to say to this discrimin...

6 THOUGHT AND EMOTION. Thought and emotion, when we stop to consider them, are the most fascinatingly marvellous facts that human beings can contemplate. They are beyond all other realities. * * * * * To each and all of us, the final reality of life is the thought, which, with the endless surge of emotion —now tempestuous, again almost imperceptible —makes up conscious existence. Final realities though they be, however, thought and emotion are essentially things that in our habitual thoughtlessness we are apt to call unreal. As we know them, they are immaterial. No systems can measure their extent or their bulk; and though they are in some degree conditioned by time, it is so slightly that we may almost say—as in a single Instant our thought ranges from primeval nebulae to cosmic death and celestial eternity—they are free from time limit, as well as from the limits of space. ***** The thought and emotion of every living being, then, is an immaterial reality, eternally different from...
