Page 5 [Newspaper Page] — The Growler — 15 April 1905

Officers Roach and Cornick dismissed by a former board for drunkenness and reappointed by the present board. Man physically disabled appointed on police force. Man with defective eyesight just appointed on police force. Large majority of policemen unintelligent. Military feature introduced in police department by Chief Boush without authority of board. Nothing in rules and regulations of department calling for said “feature.” Poker rooms watched while robbers worked with impunity ; citizens support private detective agency. Experienced head of detective department fired for political reasons. Inexperienced man appointed chief of police. Assignation houses allowed on principal streets, and respectable blocks honeycombed with women of questionable character. Streets obstructed all over the city. Corner loafers unmolested. Anti-expectorating ordinance unenforced. Berkley car company operating cars with blinding electric headlights unmolested. “Good government” members majority of counc...

6 are permitted to go out of town on private cases where there is a reward. If we mistake not, the police regulations forbid the taking of a reward for private work. The chief of police says that the mayor let the officers go; that they were not on their furloughs and that “we'll fix everything.” The chief of police says that this is a case of “human nature.” Certainly it is. The father of the boy who is supposed to have been kidnapped offered a large reward for the recovery of his son. He has ample means to employ the Pinkertons, and certainly “Hurricane” Branch, with his dogs, ought to be able to find that kid. Our two gallant officers were out of town; there is a continual howl that the city has not enough police, and only a few nights ago a burglar got away from several policemen who watched him at work. Pity it is that there is not enough work in the city for these officers, that they must be sent out of town to work on private cases while they are drawing pay from the city. Vo...

HOW I) YOU UIRK TO KISS? To the young: and old codgers in Norfolk who believe in osculating and who would emulate Richmond Pearson Hobson, it might be interesting to know that a jury has just decided that kisses in Philadelphia are worth $75 apiece; that is, when a man kisses a married woman. When an unmarried woman is kissed —if such a thing ever happens in Philadelphia—the price is supposed to be higher. Many a man is lucky to get off at $75 per. Frequently the after results are much more expensive, especially when the figuring is done by a jury in a divorce court. Old diplomats, who probably put an extravagant estimate on their powers and graces, assert that if the thing is properly managed there will be no need to pay anything for kisses. However, the experiment is a ticklish one, and the element of danger is never absent until there is mutuality in understanding. It is said that the unexpected generally happens in life; but in the matter of kissing, if the expected does not hap...

2 LITTLE GROWLERS. Who’s the Doctor ? The corset is still a pressing question, A crank is not necessarily a fool —but most all fools are cranks. So far, spring has been so fine that it hasn’t needed any boost from the poets. • Mrs. Chadwick fainted —but the creditors would rather have seen her cough up. If Rojestvensky and Togo are aching to meet, how will they feel after the meeting? If politicians find time hangs heavily this summer they can attend the camp meetings. Now we will see what the greenhouse and the henhouse can do for the success of Easter. John Paul Jones was preserved in alcohol, but the pickling was done when he was not conscious of it. It is not necessary for the society women to give the chorus girls any discount in the race for husbands. Did it ever occur to you that a cold fact can sometimes cause a hot argument? Especially in Norfolk. A policeman in New York fainted the other day during a lecture by the chief of the force. He was probably educated in Norfolk. A...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. NARCOTIC —There is absolutely no truth in the report that Mayor Riddick has quit smoking cigarettes. How unkind of you to even suggest such a thing! IZAAK WALTON —Yes, we believe that Plummer Pannill Imagined that he caught the largest fish in the lakes. Plummer has another think coming. ANXIOUS —Jesse O. Reid, who is out after office, is one of the leaders of the “good government” outfit. He is in the feed business, and has lots of money, we are informed. PROGRESS —Billy Dey is out for re-election, after holding his present job something like sixteen years. He needs the money. Also he believes in holding office—that is, if he is allowed to hold. He is tall, handsome, shrewd and the standard-bearer of the holier than thou contingent. We cannot confirm the report that Billy is going to join Dowie. INQUIRER —Yes, after the election there will be a number of gentlemen in the “also ran” class. OLD BOY —No, there is no charge of admission to the assembly room w...

Box 887 IT’S UP TO THE MAYOR. On behalf of the poor, respectable people of this community The Growler asks Mayor Riddick to lake a hand at suppressing the numerous assignation houses and other houses of questionable reputation which are honeycombed in blocks where respectable citizens reside. It is now very apparent that Chief of Police Boush will not act in the matter. The Growler has been calling attention to this insufferable state of affairs in several issues, and the chief has not raised a hand in attempting to stamp out an evil which has become unbearable; one that is doing more harm in this town than can be imagined, and one that, if not soon suppressed, might lead to serious consequences. The boosters of the administration say that Norfolk today, morally, is better than it has been in several decades. We...

FOOLS IN FOOLDOM. Undoubtedly the town is marching on. With a continuance of present activity, the younger generation will see great things in Norfolk. Her destiny is great, and the time is not remote when the present will be held up as a back-ground of contrast for the bigness of which future citizens will boast. The prophetic eye looks even beyond that and sees another New York, with its feverish unrest, Its interminable lines of gloomy ditches or streets, through which the human sewerage pours itself —the same grandeur, wealth, poverty and nastiness, ~11 will be repeated because it is useless to hope for originality. One great abortion serves as a model for a thousand little abortions —a supreme ideal to which they all aspire, and which, having reached, is but a repetition with all their abominations, of Babylon, of Rome, of London, of New York. “The City Beautiful” still remains, and long will remain, the line frenzy of the poet’s brain —the misty imaginings of the idealist, the...

6 KNOCKEKS AND KICKEIIS. There is considerable difference between the creatures that form the subject of this essay. The "kicker” is generally the individual with a just grievance for which he is seeking a remedy. When such a remedy is sought, as it generally is, in behalf of public welfare, the “kicker” becomes at once a very desirable individual to have in the neighborhood. The “knocker,” on the other hand, is the creature of mediocrity, malice and misery; one of those individuals whose gall bag broke in early life and put their whole internal mechanism on the bum. Sometimes there are other causes that conspire to make a “knocker,” but no matter what they are, the “knocker” is first, last and always the creature of mediocrity. The “kicker” is generally a person of energy and intelligence, with well-defined “live-and-let-live” principles. He wants to see wrongs righted and is happy that all should share the benefit of his efforts. Of course, the “kicker” is not always reasonable, b...

If the police board wants to do some good work, let it employ Rev. J. Francis Lee, the colored preacher who told some things last Sunday night at a colored church. The good government party would do well to read this account of what the colored preacher said, as reproduced from a local paper: “He dealt with his subject in a conservative manner, however, although he did not fall to designate whenever he thought proper the location of many of the dives and disreputable barrooms in the city, which were visited by him in disguise last Wednesday night. “The preacher referred to the existence of two employment agencies in this section, the purposes of which are, he said, to entice colored girls for immoral purposes. Many of these girls, he said, had been induced to go north, thinking that good positions awaited them there on their arrival. “ T have been informed,’ declared the divine, ‘that one of these agencies flourishes on Church street, in this city.’ “He also declared that many immor...

8 WHY NOT ENFORCE THIS LAW? A local paper makes an appeal to the storekeepers to permit their employes to use seats when not actually employed, and then says: “We believe that this has resulted in a better grade of employes and more cheerful and willing service, and the —-— hopes that some of the smaller stores of the city, which have not as yet complied with the requirements of the law regarding providing seats for employes will fall in line.” Now this is a nice spiel, indeed. As we understand it, this law has been in effect for several years. If any of the stores have not complied with the law, why haven’t they, and if they haven’t, where Is the officer or officers who have failed to enforce it? We are not surprised at anything in this town. There are laws tind laws on the statute books that are never enforced. Is it any reason when all the time, or most of the time, is devoted to spying on poker rooms which the courts have refused to close, and “military drills” that are to satis...

2 LITTLE GROWLERS. When they went to take the patrol wagon out Sunday they found the door locked and the man who had the key had gone home. If this isn’t system, then we don’t know what we’re talking about. Ever notice that rotten electric wire pole on Atlantic street, opposite the postoffice? Some day it’s going to fall, and then there’ll be a damage suit. Between removing the wooden fat man from Main stereet and stopping the Berkley railway company from using those blinding electric headlights, the authorities seem to be doing their duty. Shame on the whole bunch! If the cops keep on firing in the air after escaping drunks, they may yet be able to hit someone in a second-story window. Did you ever catch some of that soot from the many tall stacks in town? Nuff Sed. The First Ward Goo-Goos now call each other Comrades. Comrade Riddick and Comrade Cabell spieled the other night, and the boys were dee-light-ed. The same old spiel In the same old place, by the same old comrades. A loc...

THE INTELLIGENT PRINTER. Timidly, very timidly, the editor descended into the pressroom and with a respectful Inclination of the head requested to see a proof of the article he had not long since written. The haughty printer looked up from the matter he was casing and with a disdainful look and without condescending a reply kept on with his work. The meek and humble editor, realizing more than ever the inferiority of the position he occupied on the Daily Bubbler, with a still more conciliatory attitude approached another fox-face, bias-blocked, bat-eared, wry-necked son-of-a-printer’s-devil, and repeated his request for the proof. “Ah, go wan! We ain't got time ter fool wid ye—see! Wese got ther bloomin’ paper to get up—see! An’ if yer don’t like ther deal, see —why ther boys will take ther pay an’ quit —see!

Box 887 A WORD ABOUT “THE GROWLER.” This paper is published and set before the people of Norfolk and vicinity because its projectors believe there is both room and need for it here, and recent events, both in municipal manipulation and corporation oppression and bossism, go far to confirm that belief. Of course, it is a business enterprise conducted with the expectation of honorable profits, and with the confident hope that it can, and will, promote in many ways the true interests of this community. “The Growler” does not wish to assume the role of reckless reformer—it does believe, however, in frequently flushing the sewerage of our political, business and social affairs. It believes that there are many wrongs to be righted and much corruption to be exposed, and for this purpose the columns of the paper are op...

A LIFE OF SIN; A DEATH OF SHAME. Durham —restless, sensational, impulsive Durham, comes to the front again with a tragedy as deep and dark as can be woven from the warp and woof of sin and misery. It may be a question worth discussing as to whether a careful chronicler of the times should give attention to the many things that happen in Durham as the busy world spins ’round —but as it seems that these happenings ever point a moral it may not be out of place, but eminently proper to take notice of them; to dwell upon them in all their hideous deformity; in their perplexing situations and in their intensity of human depravity. It happened in the mill district. It always happens that way in the south —or most always, while if it is in New York it is the East Side —or the slums of other cities are always giving up their dead and depraved, just as the ocean leaves its garbage on the beach. It seems that a Miss Annie Jernigan—it is all right to print her name in black, bold type—was seduc...

6 meat —and yet lawyers tell us that anyone who attempts to conceal the birth of a child is criminally guilty—and that is why it occurs to us that a doctor should take no long chances in attempting to save the reputation of one who has deliberately lost it. It was by a lucky chance that the girl was decently buried —we are informed by a citizen of Durham who claims to know that a two-horse wagon and a pine box and nigger convict had been made ready to carry away to the potter's field the one who but a few days before was fair to look upon; a young woman with all the world so bright before her, and who. for the gratification of the lust of man and believing in a false vow made by him—dashed the vase to the ground and shattered it beyond repair. That her life went out when it did go out is a matter for congratulation. Had she lived —in her position in society she would have doubtless —well, she is dead—and may God have mercy on her soul! And as to the moral to this sad tragedy that ha...

A reader of “The Growler” sends us the following: "The Growler,” Norfolk, Va.: Gentlemen—On April Ist your paper contained an article relative to the obscene language used by the foreman in charge at the new bank building. You are to be congratulated. This article was most appropriate; this man is a nuisance, and should be stopped. I am of the opinion that the present administration is composed of a lot of chumps, and it looks as though the public has 'got to suffer until their term of office expires. Yours truly, AN OBSERVER. TRY THE GOO-GOOS. Now that the Salvation Army has been suppressed insofar as the beating of the cymbals and the bass drum and the sliding of the slide trombone are concerned, we would respectfully suggest that the Army turn its instruments over to the goo-goo bosses. For instance, Bill Dey might beat the big bass drum in announcing his political purity; Jess Reid could blow the slide trombone, as he is reputed to be a good blower, and Doctor Riddick could beat...
