Plain Street PROMISES VS. PERFORMANCES. l lie Norfolk Railway and Light Company promises certain concessions in the way of rates, provided that it is granted a monopoly of the lighting and power business of this community. They promise a lower scale of rates to users of light and power current, and a reduction in the price of gas, asking in return a clear field and unlimited and undisturbed control of the local situation. Why the. Norfolk Railway and Light Company should have the temerity to submit such a proposition, and why that proposition should be granted, are matters which cannot be figured out by any rules of equity or ethics. Corporations, they say, have no soul, but monopolies are both soulless and conscienceless. With them the principle of self-interest is the only creed and philosophy, and the d...

HI B PROTECTION FOR DUMB BRUTES T. E. Brickhouse, one of the largest house and property owners in this city, and proprietor of the Orange Grove Dairy, lost twenty-two fine cows through the destruction of his barn by fire some two weeks ago. The barn was a wooden affair, filled with hay and other inflammable substances. The wholesale roasting alive of cattle and horses is a species of horror peculiar to the southern states; we rarely hear of it in the north or in other portions of the civilized world. In England, where cows or horses to the number of three or over are kept under one roof, the building is required to conform to certain regulations as to fire protection. It must be of brick, it must have a slate roof, it must not be crowded with inflammable material, and it must have easy and adequate exits. If twenty or more animals are housed, a watchman is required constantly on the premises. The civilization of that country is broad enough and humane enough to extend its sheltering...

6 THE VANITY OF HUMAN PRIDE. Oh, why should the spirit of mortal be proud? hike si swift-fleeting meteor, a fast-flying cloud, A flash of the lightning, a break of the wave, Man passes from life to his rest in the grave. The leaves of the oak and the willow shall fade, Be scattered around and together lie laid; And the young and the old, and the low and the high. Shall molder to dust and together shall lie. The infant, si mother attended and loved, The mother, that Infant’s affection who proved, The husband, that mother and infant who blessed, Each, all, are away to their dwellings of rest. The maid, on whose cheek, on whose brow, in whose eye; Shone beauty and pleasure—her triumphs are by; And the memories of those who have loA r ed her and praised Are alike from the minds of the living erased. The hand of the king that the specter hath borne, The brow of the priest that the miter hath worn, The eye of the sage, and the heart of the brave, Are hidden and lost in the depth of the gr...

Jti tfie Reaftfu By Phil. Space. Well, “1 he Rajah of Bhong” has come and gone and once more is it demonstrated that the advance notices of the trust furnished to and printed by the local papers with no attempt, apparently, at verification, are misleading. After being boosted a week ahead by every one of the local press, it is roasted after it is gone. The four local papers have, during the pa*st week, been placed in an awkward position—they have been in the same position before, for many years. To save themselves, I believe they did the latter part of the week reprint from two Richmond papers an awful roast given the roving band of ham-fatters who had the nerve to ask a dollar in a supposedly first-class theatre for as rotten a production as was ever placed on the road. After awhile, after the Free-Lance has showed the people how the thing is worked, we believe that the local papers will break away from the theatrical octopus and furnish the people with honest advance notices, prin...

C L \< vwkmm s \ I i r I “ IRl^i Vol. I. No. 46. THE PUBLIC SHOULD DICTATE THE TERMS OF MONOPOLY Mr. Hathaway’s strenuous denial of the assertion made in our last week’s issue of the withdrawal of transfers appears to have met with short and sudden set-back through the statement of Mr. Arnold Eberhard, the well known architect of this city. Mr. Eberhard according to a local newspaper was refused a transfer and put off one of the cars of the octupus. The gentleman’s indignation is as warm as it is just. We like the attitude of Mr. Eberhard and wish there were many more like him in the community. He promises to make a test case om this latest “trouble-saving device” of the Norfolk Railway and Light Company. Unfortunately competition in the street car business is not possible for the reasons that the present company has a long tenure of the public highways, and that it is neither possible nor expedient to grant such right to all who apply. The operation of street railways is...

2 ATES. EITHER THAT, OR THE MONOPOLY SHOUL AGEE TO A COMPLETE REVISION OF ITS OWN FRANCHISE TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THOSE OFFICIALS WHO HAVE SUDDENLY DISPLAYED A REMARKABLE ZEAL IN THE PUBLIC BEHALF. The gentlemen of the City Councils should say to the Norfolk Railway and Light Company we will give you a monopoly upon certain terms, and they, and not the monopoly should make the terms. They should not allow the monopoly to secure itself upon its own terms, upon flimsy promises that may be circumvented. Upon six-tickets-for-a-quarter concessions that may be offset by the withdrawal of transfers, by paper representations of reductions in light rates which may be a grim piece of humor when the bills are presented. The representatives of the people in the councils should submit to the Norfolk Railway and Light Company their own plan and terms upon which they will grant a monopoly of the city’s service, and those terms should include every provision and restriction which Mr. Brooke a...

pany which presents it is one of the road shows without the inimitable George. It reminds us of the prepared announcements last season which stated that “The Ray’s A Hot Old Time” would be here. The public were not told that the Rays were not with the show and the result was that a third-rate company produced the play and the local papers, as usual, roasted the same show they had recommended to the people. Next season we propose to buck the trust, single-handed and alone. We have exposed the theatrical octopus this season and have been commended for the stand taken. It is our intention to secure our own advance notices and give them to the public a week ahead of every show which plays here, so that the theatre-goers may know just what they are asked to patronize. We wish to heartily commend the carnival which is to begin at the Ice Palace next Monday night and which will rim for a whole week. It will be for the benefit of the Confederate monument and will be under the auspices of th...

A cordial invitation is extended the many friends of both enterprises to visit ns in the new and better quarters. AS TO THOSE TRANSFERS. Last week’s issue of this paper made the statemnt that the transfers usually given at the corner of Main and Church streets had been abolished. That statement was made upon the personal experience of the writer. Boarding a car at the corner of Granby street and City Hall avenue, he tendered the conductor the fare with the request for a transfer over the East Main street line, the conductor refused the fare stating that the car following his went that way, that transfers had been abolished, and that the proper car would have to be taken.

6 BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC. Mine eyes have set'll the glory of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored. He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword; His truth is marching on. I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps; They have bullded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps; I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps; His days arc marching on. I have read a fiery gospel, writ in burnished rows of steel; “As ye deal with My contemners, so with you My grace shall deal; Let the Hero born of woman crush the serpent with his heel, Since God is marching on.” He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat; He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat; O, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant my feet! Our God is marching on. In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you ...

MONOPOLY INTOLERANT. The American people are treading a rapid pace. Taking from the local situation an example of vested interests in the growing stage, we arrive at the monopoly which supplies light, power and street car service to the Norfolk public. This concern started years ago in a small way and it is said went into politics. So great was its success that valuable franchises fell into its lap like ripe plums from a hard-shaken tree. It would be interesting to probe into the history of those franchises —how, and for what, they were obtained, —but the fact remains that unborn generations of Norfolk people are already saddled with the burden of these franchises in that their rights are mortgaged away. In other words, the few unborn successors to the rights and privileges of this company will inherit that which came primarily from the people in the way of usage of the public streets, and the unborn offspring of the great mass of the people will pay tribute to these few for what wa...

" I Will Cvll^v Vol. I. No. 47. MONOPOLY HERE AND ELSEWHERE. Newport News, the town across the bay, has an elephant on its hands in the shape of a certain Merry Monopolist named W. J. Payne. The said Merry Monopolist has reared a little octopus the care and keep of which he has saddled upon the citizens of that monopoly-ridden town. The octopus is growing, and with its growth its appetite is not diminishing. Friend Hathaway of the local octopus resents the use of the term and claims it is ridiculous to call a little trust an octopus. We have pointed out to friend Hathaway’s notice and conviction that an octopus may vary in size, and need not necessarily be of the dimensions of a whale to merit the term, hence we claim that both Norfolk and Newport News—the town across the rippling bay—are both burdened with octopii. As the old lullaby goes “a sea horse is a sea horse when you see him in the sea, when you see him in the bay a bay horse then is he;” nevertheless an octopus is an octop...

2 been a plenty. He would have left it without tenacles or suckers anddependable for a living from the municipal spoon entirely. But Mr, Brooke was not there, and caieless, cheeiful and generous councilmen just gave it everything it wanted, and it grew, and grew, and today would do credit to the municipal menagerie of a city many times the size of Norfolk. Be it known that the octopus is a creature that has no other thought but that of feeding. It is perhaps the most voracious creature in existence. It eats and grows, and grows and eats more. Few people have ever been privileged to catch a sight of the giant octopus, for the larger it becomes the deeper it secretes itself in the depths of the ocean. In the work previously alluded to, the writer saw a combat between a full grown whale and a mammoth octopus which he had brought to the surface. The octopus was nearly double the size of the whale, and its eyes alone were the size of a large wagon wheel. It is entirely possible that ther...

progressive rental agent, of whom there are quite a few in this rent-racked town. The scarcity of houses and the relative scarcity of building operations has operated to bring about a sort of trust or combination to which the hapless tenant must bow the neck or leave the city. Hundreds of families come here yearly and leave in disgust after an experience with our hog-pen buildings. Nowhere on earth are rents so high as in this city, and no other place on earth was ever so sadly behind its opportunities as this. The town has grown and is progressing, not by reason of any enterprise of the majority of our monied people, but simply as a result of natural advantages and its location on the line of travel and commercial drift. It is simply pushed ahead and the moss-backs are pushed with it, whether or no. The majority of these stay-at-homes imagine they are progressive; they really imagine that Norfolk is the most progressive city in the country. They need but to take a trip through the ...

AN ATROCIOUS MURDER The distinction of presenting one of the most revolting murders in the history of the entire country fell to Norfolk some ten days ago. So fairful and awful was the conception and execution of this horrifying crime that even the newspapers —always on the alert for the unusual and sensational — did not immediately awake to the full realization of its peculiar atrocity. Two young men, by names Dolson and Taylor, from casual acquaintances become apparently friends. They are seen much in each other’s company, chumming together and engaging in the pastimes and diversions common to men in their station and sphere of existence, and finally become roommates. In assuming the closer companionship which this condition affords the parties were actuated by entirely different motives. In ...

death in its most terrible form, but the crushing out of human life in its concious state is not nearly so horrible, so fearful a thing as the deliberate destruction of a sleeping creature. The condition of sleep is in itself of an awe-inspiring character to the contemplative mind, it is so strange and wonderful, so suggestive of the infinite possibilities of the human soul. There lies the sleeping person, helpless and lost to all the existence of the one who looks upon him. That marvellous something which leaves one’s body in sleep and wanders fetterless and free where fancy wills, is off in another world. To it time and space have no meaning. The soul of Dolson may have been roaming back over the past, contemplating and enjoying some scene of innocent childhood, smiling upon some first young love by the bank of some sylvan stream when that murderous blow descended, how can we in our worldly philosophy account for it? Did it remain where it was but the instant before? Having no ear...

6 Wc know not wliat It is, dear, this sleep so deep and still, The folded hands, the awful calm, the cheek so pale and chill; The lids that will not lift again, though we may call and call. The strange, white solitude of peace that settles over all. We know not wlmt it means, clear, this desolate heart-pain; Tills dread to take onr daily way, and walk in it again; We know not to what other sphere the loved who leave us go, Nor why we’re left to wonder still; nor why we do not know. But this we know: Our loved and dead, if they should come this day— Should come and ask us, “What is life?” not one of us could say. Life is a mystery as deep as ever death ean be; Yet oh, how sweet it is to us, this life we live and see! Then might they say—these vanished ones—and blessed is the thought! “So death is sweet to us, beloved! though we may tell ye naught; We may not tell it to the quick—this mystery of death— Ye may not tell us, if ye would, the mystery of breath.” The child who enters life ...

CHIEF BOUSH AS PRESS CENSOR The edition of the Norfolk Dispatch of last Monday was one of the most entertaining productions we have lately seen issued from the local daily press. Its dissertaion on the recent horrible murder was complete and graphic, every news item was interestingly written, and its editorial page, especially so. We especially have reference to the article headd “Police and Newspapers.” We commend this piece of humorous satire to the reading of all who have not yet seen it. They should enjoy the humor in the situation surrounding our festive chief of police as it is there set forth. The circumstances, when understood, are calculated to dispel a severe case of the blues. Chief Boush took umbrage at the pertinacity of the Dispatch reporters in giving the public the complete details of the recent tragedy. He says it operates against the best interests of the Police and Detective departments. He labors forth the edit that the statement of the facts of crime are conduci...
