Vol. I. No. 43. SOME MORE FRANCHISE AND OGTOPOS ARGOMENT. Things are getting desperate, and unless the city councils soon give Mr. R. B. Fentress the full and complete franchise for which he is asking, the Norfolk Railway and Light Co. will have to start a paper of its own with which to scatter abroad its generous information and glittering promises. We have been hammering upon this one subject for forty-two weeks, and that's about the record for this branch of journalism in Norfolk. The grey hairs are crowding thick and fast in our mop, and just as we thought there was nothing more to be said on the subject—lo—scissors!—and another circular letter to the general public from yours very truly, E. C. Hathaway, V. President and Gen'l Manager. This latest circular of the N. R’y and L. Co., includes a detached statement of lighting charges in other cities, together with prices of coal and other information cheerful to the public and beneficial to the cause of the company. We pass over th...

2 clendorf have any more right to furnish light and power and run street cars in Norfolk than R. R. Fentress, and in deference to the sentiment of their constituents the city councils should answer so arrogant a demand by granting a full and unreserved franchise to Mr. R. B. Fentress and give the people an opportunity to trade at another shop if the present monopoly is not to their taste and liking. Mr. Hathaway asks the sound business men of this community to believe the following—“the Norfolk Railway and Light Co. has never paid a dividend on its stock, the gentlemen who have invested their money in this enterprise have had thus far no return for the same, and all things considered, we believe that the interests of the public at large, as well as the citv itself, will he best served by PERMITTING THIS COMPANY, UNDER FAIR AND REASONABLE RESTRICTIONS. TO OCCUPY THE TERRITORY UNDISTURBED.” Is that so? As the old darky says —Wha’ mek, an’ how cum? A business that has not paid dividend...

producing pretty girls and handsome women, all expuisitely gowned, this section carries off the bun. We believe that the ice rink is going to be a permanent institution and that next season the rink will have to be enlarged. There are thousands of lovers of the exhilarating sport, many here from the north and west, and as ice skating grows on one who always wishes for more, it is a safe bet that the crowds are going to continue to flock to the rink. Certainly a skate at the rink is far better than moving pictures at the Academy or the mellow-dramahs at the Granby. . When Norfolk and Portsmouth meet at the rink at hockey we know that the place is going to be filled to capacity. “The Runaways. Entirely original New York Casino production. The famous Casino show girls.” That’s how “The Runaways” is boosted. It will be at the Academy Friday night. Well, if the girls in the show are, as advertised, “the famous Casino show girls,” we pity them, for they must be pretty old chickens by this...

In the former editorial, after setting forth the many virtues and sturdy qualities of the Russian Jew, the Dispatch extended them an invitation to come ”en masse” to Virginia, with the suggestion that such an influx would be to Virginia's good. The Dispatch is, of course, entitled to its opinion on this subject, hut having so confidently aired that opinion it should not upon flimsy representations suddenly change its attitude on the whole subject of foreign immigration.

ones who leave their homes to seek advancement abroad. The solid, substantial folks, who are comfortable at home, have no reason so to do, for it is difficult to conceive that any country could offer superior inducements for the well-to-do than the settled countries of Europe. We do not agree with the brutal assertion of Mr. Astor that “America is no land for ladies and gentlemen,” still the assertion conveys in a measure an idea of the difference in conditions that prevail. In extenuation of the conditions that exist in this country the misleading statement is often set forth that we are a young nation, that when we have garnered the fruits of the centuries we will know better and do better, but this line of reasoning is fallacious for the reason that as a nation we began existence with all of the most difficult problems of life worked out for us; started, in fact, where others had left off. and though we are a younger people indeed, we are nevertheless standing on the shoulders of...

6 THOU CANST NOT FORGET. Thou canst not forget me, for memory will fling Her light o’er oblivion’s dark sea; And where’er thou roamest a something will cling To thy bosom that whispers of me. Though the chords of thy spirit I never may sweep, Of my touch they’ll retain a soft thrill, Like the low undertone of the murmuring deep When the wind that has stirred it is still. The love that is kept in the beauty of trust, Cannot pass like the foam from the seas, Or the mark that the finger hath made in the dust, When tls swept by the breath of the breeze. They tell me my love thou wilt calmly resign, Yet I ever, while listening to them, Will sigli for the heart that was linked unto mine As a rosebud is linked to its stem. Thou canst not forget me! .Too long hast thou flung Thy spirit’s soft pinions o’er mine; Too deep was the promise that round my lips clung, As they softly responded to thine. In the dusk of the twilight, beneath the blue sky, My presence will mantle thy soul, And a feeli...

Vol. I. No. 44. Monday’s issue of the Norfolk Dispatch contained an able I exposition of the menacing immensity of the great individual fortunes of America. No thinking man can read the undisputed facts as set forth in this paper without a feeling of deep apprehension for the future of his fellow countrymen. Perhaps at no period of the world’s existence was money ever so powerful as now. There is scarcely a single item in the sum of human life over which it does not exert complete influence, and this influence is preponderatingly on the side of evil. Mammon is indeed a monster who mocks at all the finer in- ' stinct’s of man’s nature and sets them at naught. Idealism, love, veneration, patriotism and honesty are all swept aside by this ruthless disturber of the peace of mankind. The assertion that money is the root of all evil is but the naked truth, for Mammon is the child of Lust, sired by some arch-demon of Hell, in whose fiery mind was conceived the crowning affliction of humani...

2 from one inch in circumference to a hundred feet, but they are Octopii nevertheless, and live in their own dark and sinister way. The Trust tribe is represented in Norfolk by the concern known as The Norfolk Railway and Light Company. It has earned the title by reason of its remarkable attitude that to it alone belongs the privlegc of furnishing the citizens of this city with light and power, and by blandly asking the councils and the public to shut out competition and secure to it a perpetuation of its own monopoly. A citizen applies for a franchise to engage in the light and power business, a privlege which would naturallly be supposed the right of any citizen. “Not so,” says the gentlemen of the local trust, “to us alone—to Messrs. Williams and Middendorf and a few other choice and elect spirits, their heirs and assigns forever, to have and to hold, belongs the street franchisess of the city of Norfolk, and we will send lawyers into your city council to fight against any outsid...

ON THE TOUCHING OF HANDS. With the announcement of a local celebration to be held on the anniversary of the birth of Robert E. Lee, there comes an idea. It is said there is nothing new under the sun, but in this we lay claim to a new thought nevertheless. Every recurring Confederate Memorial Day impresses the pathetic fact that the soldiers of the South are rapidly passing away. The thin grey lines are yearly growing thinner, and the figures of the veterans are bending lower as their steps falter more and more under the burden of time. In the lifetime of our younger generation the last of these men will be gathered to their fathers, and one of the mightiest conflicts of the ages, with all its soul-stirring interest will have become but history pure and simple. The printed page will still be with us, and the monuments and the yearly ceremonials; but the element of life—that personal contact which now lends so deep and pathetic an interest to these gatherings will have forever vanishe...

Plain Street ELBERT HUBBARD, THE PHILISTINE At the birth of Elbert Hubbard a great light broke upon the world the scintillations whereof have penetrated every nook and corner of this sombre planet. This great man at the moment of nativity had the distinction of being the youngest baby on earth, and by that very sign the knowing ones knew that something unusal had happened. He knew it himself and was not like other children. The sense of importance and the great work that lay before him weighed heavily upon this embryo philosopher and he fell into abstract reasoning almost before he could walk. One day while swinging on the garden gate at the tender age of six, the gate groke loose, smote him to the ground, and cut a gash in his fair and expansive forehead. From that moment young Hubbard became convinced o...

suprised to find that he is transcendent in every craft, trade and profession known to the world. He can converse in any and all language and translate his own works even into Chinese and Japanese. Throughout these countries Confucianisn and Buddhaism are rapidly being supplanted by Hubbardism. Christianity is everywhere throughout Europe and America giving way before him. He is said to be the real inventor of wireless telegraphy, but in his modesty permitted Marconi to reap the credit. Had he lived before Columbus he would undoubtedly have discovered America, and Nopoleon would have been an inconsequential cuss had Hubbard commanded on the other side. He has discovered the elixir of life and his intimate friends assert he will never die. As a physician, he might if he choose, bring the suffering of the world beseeching to his feet. Dentistry is merely child’s play for him, and as evidence of his adroitness in this science it is only necessary to state that he pulls, fills, caps and...

6 ROBERT BURNS. According’ to astrology, those born under (he signs prevailing during the month of January, are destined—if favored in certain other respects—to shine as stars of the first magnitude In the brilliant galaxy of those whom the world deems great. Setting aside the pretensions of this so-called science as the myth and fable of a credulous age, we are nevertheless frequently astonished to observe its edicts Jn harmony with the biographies of the celebrities of the world. The list of great men born in January is a long one, and includes the names of the most commanding figures in every department of human endeavor. Among those who occur at the moment might be mentioned Edmund Burke, Gen. Robert E. Lee, Edgar A. Poe, Lord Byron and Robert Burns, Scotia’s rarest flower. Robert Burns, a figure pathetically unique in literature, was born January 25th, 175 ft, and the world was to him—in his own language—“a bitter step-mother and hard.” How such an amazingly tuneful and beautif...

Wlicn Burns’ fi:s£ work began to appear in various forms in his home county they eaire under the notice of the great professors and editors of Edim orough, who immediately took umbrage that a peasant plow-boy should dare to poacli on the sacred preserves of literature, a domain they considered peculiarly their own. “How,” they exclaimed, “could an unlettered farmer’s son, unlearned in English, to say nothing of Latin and Greek, write poetry?” Burns’ reply was direct and overwhelming,— “You critic-folk may cock your nose. And say, “How can I e’er propose While hardly knowing verse from prose, To make a song?” But, by your leaves, my learned foes, You may be wrong! “Ye set o’ dull, conceited hashes', Confuse your brains in college classes, Ye go in s...

Vol. I. No. 45. THE NEW FRANCHISE DOCUMENT A WONDERFUL PAPER. CHAMPIONS OF CITY’S INTEREST SEE SALVATION ONLY IN MONOPOLY. The sub-committee of the city councils appointed to confer and report upon the recent application of R. B. Fentress met on Tuesday night in the office of the city treasurer. Idle committee listened to the reading of a revised form of franchise application which had been drawn up by some of its members under the advice and inspiration of City Engineer Brooke. This new paper differs materially in substance and form from the original application and is on the face of it a prohibitive document. No financier with any regard to the ordinary principles of business could afford to consider a great expenditure under a tenure so precarious and oppressive as the stipulated provisions of this impossible document. If the Norfolk Railway and Light Company was suddenly saddled with such burdensome conditions they would be glad to throw up their monopoly and retire from the fie...

Under this clause a half mile of subway along the line of which there should be no demand for service could be regarded as abandoned and confiscated. Permission to open any street must be given in writing by the Street, Sewer and Drain Board, and all work must be passed upon and receive the approval of the City Engineer before being put to use. The City Engineer further reserves the right to direct how such work shall be done. Inspectors to oversee such work are to be appointed by the city at the expense of the new company, presumably at the instance of the City Engineer. Heavy fines, penalties, and the possibility of forfeiture confront the new company at every step. In addition to the consideration paid for the franchise additional charges and taxes may be imposed as a majority of the councils may see ...

should consider his duty and the public only, and there is much to keep him busy. Norfolk is, as American cities go, an ancient town, and scores of antiquated structures in the older sections of the city are yearly ripening to a fall. Some of these buildings appear to stay up by sheer force of habit alone. Every passing week adds to the menace of falling walls in Norfolk. For its size, this city is in this respect actually the rottenest on earth. Most of the earlier buildings were erected by negro labor. The bricks are badly set and the mortar consists mainly of bad lime and sand. One may see buildings all over town in which the so-called mortar has fallen away completely. In England they build a brick house to stand a thousand years, but a bricklayer lays the bricks in a cement which hardens into stone, and in walls of proper thickness, and there are honest inspectors to see that all building laws are carried out to the letter. Such buildings are real investments, and do not fall a...
