as chairman, or Mr. Purdie, the temporary chairman. We say that Mr. Purdie should leave no room for suspicion along these lines. At the meeting Saturday night he should rule the committee as though he were the permanent chairman, and his rulings should be final. We all know that the election machinery is in the hands of the “ good government ” party. Mr. Dey is supposed to be the leader of the purity brigade. Mr. Dey has led the people to believe that he is out of the running, now that he has temporarily resigned as chairman of the city committee. His position at best is a delicate one since he is still connected with the city committee and is also a candidate for office. We sincerely trust that the city committee will give the people a fair and square deal. As a matter of fact the committee cannot afford to do otherwise. It certainly behooves them to be on their guard. And along these lines, no matter how we may disagree with Chief of Police Boush regarding the conduct of his offic...

6 FOR GOODNESS’ SAKE, GIVE US RELIEF. It is a crying shame that the city authorities do not give the people relief from the intolerable conditions that exist at the corner of Main and Atlantic streets, where the new building for the National Bank of Commerce is going up. Such a state of affairs would not be tolerated for one instant in many a town one-third the size of this city. In any other city the contractors would have been compelled to build a raised walkway on Main street with an overhead protection. As it is at present, people are compelled to take the narrow plank walk, where persons must walk singly. It will be observed that the space between the edge of the plank walk and the car track is but a few inches and soon we will, no doubt, hear of a terrible accident —some pedestrain being crushed by a trolley car. In the second place, the police at that corner permit idle men to line up on the curb. There is little space between the fruit stand on the corner and the street unde...

BALTIMORE’S MUNICIPAL LEAGUE. A Perusal of the List of Members Shows that Politicians and Disappointed OfficeSeekers Gained Admission. Norfolk lias her municipal league. We sincerely trust that the league, after it gets in working order, will be of benefit to the city. We trust that the league will be instrumental in breaking up the secret sessions of all municipal bodies so that the people can know what their servants are doing, and we trust that the league will bring about reforms that will benefit no particular person but the “common people.” A municipal league, in our opinion, is a good thing if conducted on strictly non-partisan lines, with politics eliminated, with no axe to grind, with no enemies to punish or friends to reward. So much in brief for our local municipal league. It has been demonstrated that where one municipal league has been successful and has really accomplished good work for the people bf their respective localities, that in other pities the league has met w...

8 the main chance. They are governed entirely by self-interest, and if on election day they can serve themselves by espousing the cause of the least desirable candidates, these men will surely desert their colleagues. It is further shown that THERE ARE ALSO IN THE BUNCH M'EIN WHO ARE THEMSELVES CANDIDATES FOR OFFICE, AND WHO' HOPE TO SCOPE A POINT BY LINING UP WITH THE SOCALLED “GOOD GOVERNMENT” PEOPLE. Some are using the league as a club for their respective organizations, and while not making the direct threat, intimate by their course that if they are not nominated they may make it interesting for the successful candidates. Just about one-third of the 600 members are conscientious citizens, who, inspired by the hope of being able to secure the election of capable and honest officials, have in good) faith consented to devote their best efforts to make successful this reform movement. These men are in a decided minority. On the day the twenty-five members from each ward were announ...

The Great American Rowdy. By all rules of contrast the supreme hog of civilization is the great American rowdy. He is peculiarly the product of this hemisphere. There may be some like him in other countries, but the club of the policeman, and the sabre of the gendarme render him generally a negligible quantity, and the peaceful citizen is seldom afflicted by his performances. He is very prevalent upon the streets of our cities, but one has there the satisfaction of avoiding his aggravating company. This unfortunately is impossible on the street car, the railroad coach, or the short trip steamer, and an excursion steamer or train is his peculiar delight. The foreign rowdy is generally a ragged, dirty looking ruffian, whose whole appearance determines at a glance his social standing; but the American rowdy is more frequently a good looking, welldressed individual, and very often a member of what he is pleased to call “the better class.” The species is confined to no particular sex, an...

JO It has come to a nice point when a performer on the stage uses coon dialect in attempting to portray the character of the southerner. If the performer cannot reproduce the real dialect of the South he should never attempt to act the character. We had occasion recently to visit the Granby, where “His Last Dollar” was being played. The show itself was one of the best we have ever witnessed, but its effects were greatly marred by the young man who essayed the role of the boy from Kentucky and who used pure nigger dialect. “ ’Deed, missus, I’sc sartainly glad to be wid yo’. Yo’ doan no how glad I is,” is a fair reproduction of the lines of the young man. We might give a half column of what he said in coon dialect. Now, this is neither creditable to the performer or the people whom he attempts to reproduce. His lines lost their effect and the audience, no doubt, must have felt aggrieved. If this article is fortunate enough to reach the character performers, we trust when they have a p...

WHEN WOMAN SWAYS THE MAN. [Note —This article should be read closely. It is worth a careful perusal.] Billy Patterson, who according to tradition, was struck, and his assailant never apprehended, achieved but little more notoriety than his sister, Nan Patterson, the pretty actress who has held charmed and spell-bound the Associated Press and in turn the news editors of the country for the past several months. Caesar Young was a married man. Nan Patterson was an actress. Caesar Young was a sport. Nan Patterson was a sportess. A gopd pair to draw to —and Caesar had money and Nan knew how to spend it. She, being an actress, Mr. Young found the way to her heart and he made her believe that he loved her—and while the money was coming easy Nan made him believe that the love was reciprocated. But it wasn’t love. It was lust. The actress testified in court that Young had given her large amounts of money. Mrs. Young was jealous of Nan. Of course she had no right to be. A husband can have a d...

12 man who is suspected of undue intimacy with his cook is perhaps tabooed—but if he establishes a harem he is a great man. And yet no matter how disreputable the parties to the tragedy ; no matter how high up or how low down—the American people love to read about the plot. In these days when the yellows manufacture filth if there is nothing for their buzzards to pick up on the streets; when the appetite is sharpened and nothing but carrion will satiate the greed, it is welcome news to hear that the Smoots and the Nan Pattersons are to appear before the foot-lights. But back to the girl in the Tombs: She is pale and nervous, and perhaps on the verge of a general collapse. She had talent. She had beauty. She had genius. Instead of studying to be decent she saw the Primrose path and its beguiling pleasures; she failed to think of that “ other day ” which comes into all lives—the day when the face is old ; when Youth is subdued and a home is most needed. Like Madam Jaunescheck who died...

2 LITTLE GROWLERS. We rise to inquire if there are people in Norfolk not amenable to the laws? We have an ordinance regulating the blockading of the pavement and prohibiting merchandise, signs and obstructions thereon. The small merchant who puts a few pieces of crockery or tinware upon the sidewalk against his windows receives a call from a policeman, who gruffly orders them in with a threat of penalties if the offense is repeated. The same policeman repeatedly passes the business place of a Main street restaurant and saloon keeper, where undressed poultry is hung from the awning with blood dripping upon the clothes of passers-by, and where a large business sign of a fat man has been out on the curb daily since the passage of said ordinance, and the copper swings his club and never says a word. Will some of our political sharps explain WHY? The Virginian-Pilot calls the attention of the authorises to the swearing permitted of the workmen at the corner of Main and Atlantic streets, ...

Mr. Sterling need not make the effort to cast the spell. He’s no hypnotist, certainly not. Who ewer accused him of being a protege of Baldwin ? Somebody cast a hypnotic spell on the voters of Norfolk at that October primary. We’re getting the result. If Jimmie Trehy is the leader of the anti-administration party, who is the leader of the “good government” ring? Will any of the brethren answer? And in the meantime, those electric headlights on the Berkley cars continue to blind people. The authorities sit by with stolid indifference. Surely, “the public be d d” appears to be their motto. “Justice Simmons, upon reaching the case and finding that there had been a withdrawal, called Justice Blick to the desk and told him that there was a law by which a husband or wife could not steal from one another. Squire Blick said afterwards that he had never heard of any such law as that, and he would have to look it up.”—Ledger report of a police court case. There are a whole lot of other things ...

Possibly the worst condition that can befall a community is that in which public conscience can no longer be aroused; where evil has been endured so long that it is tolerated as an old and familiar acquaintance; where warnings are met with indifference, and appeals to individual honor and justice meet no response; in short, where a disdainful synicism has usurped the place of a righteous indignation. Such a place is ripe for the spoiler, and in the shapes of vice and ignorance the spoilers are always ready. Are not the people of Norfolk dangerously near such a stage? Are we not a politically stagnant people? Are there not hundreds of respectable and intelligent men in this community—financiers, lawyers, merchants, mechanics—so engrossed in their personal affairs as to never have time to...

rious consideration, for it must be remembered that movements affecting the destiny of nations often start in this way. The upper stratum of society, selfish in its plethora and heedless in its exclusiveness, rarely assumes the initiative—good or bad —in social problems. Such movements more frequently start in the gutter and insiduously force their way through the whole fabric of the body politic. The business place of the liquor dealer under discussion is located under a three-story house containing a number of dilapidated rooms in all stages of decay, and said to be owned and controlled by him. In order, perhaps, to facilitate business, he, it is said, let the premises to negroes as an alleged “boarding and lodging” house. The transient “guests” are said to be the real source of revenue. The front apartments have windows on a main street given over to business —its few residents have always been white people and mostly respectable. From these windows may be frequently seen rows of...

6 PORTSMOUTH’S CONSOLIDATION KNOCKERS. The progressive spirit that prevails in Portsmouth can best be described by the remarks of J. Davis Reed, of the Portsmouth B. M. A., before the consolidation committee. Mr. Reed said: “There are, however, many people in the city who are violently opposed to consolidation under any conditions. One man went so far as to say that HE HAD RATHER BE HUNG IN PORTSMOUTH THAN DIE A NATURAL DEATH IN NORFOLK .. Another said that HE WOULD GIVE SI,OOO TO DEFEAT CONSOLIDATION AND WOULD CUT HIS THROAT IF IT WAS EFFECTED. . And still another stated that he would be opposed to consolidation EVEN IF HE WERE GUARANTEED FREEDOM FROM TAXATION FOR THE NEXT 100 YEARS.” If Mr. Reed will give The Growler the names of these individuals and their photos, we will gladly print the whole outfit. We would like to hold these fogies up to the public gaze after which we would gladly assist the first fellow to hang himself and the second one we would buy a brand new knife with ...

niittecl to remain within its gates. He declares that one eye is wide open and the other closed, but none are so blind as those who do not care to see. Well, there must be something rotten in Portsmouth, judging by the way Rev. Joliff lambasted Mayor Baird. The minister, who is just now doing the Parkhurst act, concluded as follows: “I tell you, my friends, that the only hope in this matter is found in increasing the sense of responsibility in the individual citzen, and in turning the fierce light of publicity on the deeds of official life in the city.” Well spoken brother. That’s just what we are trying to do over here. We’re just now turning the fierce light of publicity on our “good government” brethren. The light may be blinding to their eyes, but the public are not so blind that they cannot tell that “good government” as it is served in Norfolk, is a farce and travesty. KEEP OUT OF THE FOG! One of our great Americans asked the captain of an ocean liner if it was always foggy on...

2 LITTLE GROWLERS. It's the bad egg in the shuffle that spoils the omelet. It’s the bad eggs in the Good Government clique that gives that bad odor to the whole outfit. Every dog has his day, and every day (in Norfolk) has many dogs for the catchers. Do, Mr. Boush, order our military police to make a charge upon the canines. The “cussin’ ” foreman at the new bank building was in police court again last week on complaint of some outraged gents who happened to hear him say “dam.” Justice Simmons dismissed the case, doubtless realizing that while politeness is a very desirable qualification it does not drive piles. Asked why he cut off his flowing mustache, a well-known man about town responded that it gave him more room on his face, and as rents were high he needed the room. (Not copyrighted.) The Virginian-Pilot says that Norfolk was never better governed than at present. Holy Smoke! What a hard reputation to saddle upon this poor, benighted community. Mere denial of the truth of thi...

JENNIE R. —Yes, Mr. Wells controls everything In the theatrical line, with the assistance of Klaw & Erlanger and a few poor Richmond men. We know of no law regulating the prices at theatres.

At present it will be necessary to use a powerful glass to find the sprinkler. B. Z.
