2 LITTLE GROWLERS. In formulating the new rules regarding licenses, the city fathers have saddled the additional expense and trouble upon the merchant of going to a notary public and swearing as to the extent of his business. It seems to us that out of consideration for our muchly-taxed people the city should have omitted this feature, or else have employed notaries at stated hours in one of the municipal offices to receive such depositions without cost to the merchant. While this feature is certainly a nice little plum for the guileless notaries, it is no less a nice little nuisance to the long-suffering Norfolk merchant. We should remember that the reputation of Norfolk among strangers rests —not on anything within the corporate limits of the city proper, but upon the many pleasing resorts and points of interest round about us. The stranger visiting Old Point Comfort very naturally associates that very delightful spot with Norfolk, and yet there are many thousands of people in thi...

AS TO THE SALVATION ARMY. Abraham Lincoln, as everybody knows, was one of the greatest wits that this nation has produced. On one occasion a friend of his who had known him In his boyhood, wrote a worthless book, and called upon President Lincoln for a recommendation of the work. The gentleman had been a close friend of Lincoln’s parents, and the request was almost in the nature of a command by reason of the intimate relations that had existed as aforesaid. Mr. Lincoln deferred the matter several times, in the vain hope that his old friend would at last get tired of trying and launch his volume under other auspices, but in this he was doomed to disappointment, for on the last occasion the old chap burst into the President’s office and peremptorily demanded to know whether or not he proposed to honor himself and maintain the friendly relations that had so long existed between them by giving the recommendation requested. There was no escape this time, and Mr. Lincoln took the book, ca...

The police last Saturday night found open an alleged poker room on Roanoke avenue and put a padlock on the front door. The cop who put the lock on said that he had orders from the chief to padlock all doors found open in the business district. We consider this last act of Boush’s the most colossal joke that has been played on the people of this city in many a decade. The idea that the police did not know that card playing was going on in that place and to send officers with a padlock to fasten it. Pity it is that the police have nothing else to do. Here they devote their time to a place that the courts have ruled cannot be molested, while the brazen assignation houses run wide open and their nasty occupants flaunt their repulsive faces under the noses of respectable people.

THE INFAMOUS PIMP AND OTHER DEGENERATES. One of the most disgusting sights to the eye of manly men is the spectacle of an individual wearing pants who is content to sit around and let the women folks make a living for him. The able-bodied chap of sound health who will live off the labor of mother, sister or wife, is a creature altogether despicable and not a fit associate for men of better mould. There are many of such weaklings in every community, but as their status is social only and one with which the law has nothing to do, we must, for the purpose of getting nearer the subject of our article, descend many steps in the scale of degradation until we come to what Is generally known as the “pimp." A “pimp” is defined in Webster as “one who provides gratifications for the lust of others. One who procures lewd women for the gratification of others.” Another dictionary gives the additional definition —“a man who lives upon the proceeds of female prostitution.” Of this class of human d...

6 WATCH THOSE COPPERS. The Growler does not make the charge outright, but it has reason to believe that certain members of the police department are engaged in electioneering for certain “good government” candidates, and we now sound a note of warning. The people will stand for nothing like this; they got a dose at the October primary and, while the folks in this town are a law-abiding set of people, it would not do well to get them aroused too far. Chief of Police Boush some time ago, if we remember correctly, said that under no circumstances were the police to take any part In the coming election, other than to preserve order at the polls and exercise the rights of suffrage. So far, so well. The Growler recently observed two policemen in uniform in or near the office of a certain candidate on the “good government” end. The policemen appeared to be off duty and we do not believe that they were on the premises of the candidate for the purpose of renewing old acquaintances or for the...

RUNNIN’ WID DE MACHINE. We have nothing but the kindliest feeling for our Seventh ward neighbors. We love them even as a brother, although they do permit the chickens and the roosters to run at large and eat all of the surplus hay in the streets, instead of turning the fowl over to the Norfolk Health Department for similar service in town. A friend of The Growler has given us a story about the Seventh ward that we just can’t help printing. It relates to the gallant fire department and the men who “run wid de machine.” Our friend tells us of an alarm recently and of the hiking of the embryo laddies for about a mile through the tall timbers and deep mud. As the story goes, after the poor fellows reached the scene, and as they stood perspiring in the damp night atmosphere, someone told the brigade that the city department had extinguished the flames, had returned to their quarters a mile and a half away and all of the apparatus was In the house ready for another alarm. Well, gentle rea...

VOL. I. No 9 WAS SAMUEL McCUE HANGED? Remarkable Story Regarding The Alleged Execution of The Ex-Mayor of Charlottesville, Va. A traveling salesman for a New York house, who frequently visits this city, is responsible for the statement that Samuel McCue, the wife-murderer, whom we all supposed to have been hung at Charlottesville some months ago, is probably alive and well, and possibly at this time swelling the population of New Zealand or Australia. He declares that a week subsequent to the hanging, while waiting for a train in the Toronto, Ontario, railway station, he was passing the time watching a large number of emigrants from England and Scotland on their way out to the Manitoba wheat fields; he was remarking upon the immense contrast between the class of emigrants Canada is receiving and those landing at New York, when another train rolled in from the east and unloaded its human freight right in front of him, cutting off, momentarily, a view of the emigrant train upon the ot...

2 throughout this city and state, by claiming that, taken in connection with the very remarkable circumstances of the Charlottesville execution, it assumes the phase of legitimate discussion. The more the analytical mind reflects upon those circumstances, the larger looms the element of doubt. If the accounts of all the different newspapers be true, the execution of this man was the most remarkable in the history of criminology, and the nine significant and startling facts which make it so are these: First, McCue’s back was to the spectators —an unusual thing; second, the drop was three feet; third, the deputy who adjusted the rope about the neck of the culprit was observed to unduly busy himself, not once, but twice, after adjusting the rope, by placing his hand around McCue and arranging something under his coat, and also whispering something in his ear; fourth, and, most startling of all, we are informed that when cut down the features of the victim were absolutely placid and pea...

through of a fake hanging? We are likewise told that McCue went to his death totally unconcerned, even with an air of bravado; now this courageous bravery—for it is nothing else—is not consistent with the man’s character, and certain incidents of his life which go to show that he was by no means possessed of these qualities. The secret assassin of women seldom makes this showing upon the scaffold, and although neither attitude would have any bearing upon the case ordinarily, yet in this one it assumes a certain degree of significance. It will be remembered that shortly after the McCue execution, by a singular coincidence, a story was started out by one of the New York papers about a murderer who had escaped the gallows through a fake execution. This story was copied by some of the Norfolk sheets, and gave rise at the time to considerable speculative discussion, not a little of which was connected with the McCue execution. The old story was revived that Freemasons might be condemned ...

Raines was put in office by that aggregation that led folks to believe they would make of Norfolk a Garden of Eden, but instead have given us a sample of the reverse. Raines is nearly six feet in height, stoop-shouldered, big and husky, and with a sufficient amount of intelligence might get a job on the New York force : that is, if he got that hump out of his back. Raines, we are informed, has quit his wife. She says so and until we have a denial by Raines we will believe it, Mrs. Raines, when interviewed by a representative of this paper, said that Raines had deserted her to live with another woman. Mrs. Raines’ name is Lydia Raines, and she lives at 174 Chapel street. She says that she is in destitute circumstanc...

neighbor borrows it nearly every week. That’s a circulation that was unlooked for. Fifty thousand a year to clean the streets. Eighteen hundred a year for a chief of police who won’t enforce the ordinance against street obstructions, street loafers, street spitters, street walkers and assignation houses. Wow! Uncle Sam collects each year from the demi-monde for selling liquor in their houses. Why don’t the state do the same? Can any of the officials of this town answer? Why is it that the city democratic committee must meet in the office of Boss Dey? Is there no other place in town? A Portsmouth paper returns its passes to the street railway and then proceeds to roast Mr. Hathaway, the high muck-a-muck of the railway trust. Why didn’t the Star return its passes before it was called upon to do so. Is that independence? Roast the railway after it politely requests that you return the passbooks. The roast of Hathaway sounds like the scold of an old woman. Isn’t the editor of the Star a...

self. Everybody’s hail-fellow but nobody’s friend; that’s Weak-Knees. If the majority of the people of the town were English, he would tell them that he considered the American revolution “an ill-advised measure.” Among the Irish he is the most Irish of the lot. He would eat Llmburger cheese with the Dutch and for the sake of worldly goods would change color or creed. Mr. Weak-Knees is to be found in every walk of life; in journalism, at the bar, at the other bar, in counting-house and workshop: here, there and everywhere; but wherever encountered he gives forth an atmosphere of depression, stagnation and hopelessness.

It is claimed that a very long list of credentials secured from some of the most prominent people in this city and state, and up north, were obtainedf upon the unusual power and vigor of the editorials in question. One of them was actually taken up by the Associated Press, reproduced almost entire and circulated throughout the United States, and the various comments of the different newspapers would make a large volume.

2 In the days of Adam and Eve, the season when the leaves began to fall was the most trying time of the year. Will the Old Dominion Steamship Company not grant that twentyfive cent excursion rate to Old Point Comfort and return, as requested of them in last week’s issue? We think the sweltering people of this abnormally high-priced city are entitled to some consideration at the hands t)f corporations they do so much to support. How many Norfolk people have ever been to Cape Charles? Scarcely one in a thousand. Yet, it is hard to conceive of a more delightful trip. The N. Y., P. and N. runs daily steamers to that point to connect with its terminal there. The steamer leaving Norfolk at 8 a. m. affords a three-hour trip across Hampton Roads and the beautiful expanse of Chesapeake Bay, and those who have enjoyed the experience on a bright summer morning, place it among their most charming jaunts. If the N. Y., P. and N. will give our people a summer rate of one dollar for the round trip...

the colored chap gathered to himself a reputation and sundry shekels has not yet taken the matter to court. He promises, however, that there is a hot blast in store for the black editor, unless he pays the fifty-five dollars alleged to be due. The Growler is proud to note that it has been able to suggest topics for a couple of its local contemporaries. We have no objection in the world to assisting them all we can. They will find us ready and willing on all occasions, either for a song and dance, or a wrestling match. The Dispatch deserves credit for the excellent quality of poetry that appears in Its columns.

We sincerely trust that the city will be spared another October primary. One of the bulwarks of freedom in this country is the right to exercise suffrage by the ballot. Every man qualified is entitled to vote. W hen he is denied that privilege and when he is robbed of that which is all holy to him as a man and citizen, it is an invitation towards anarchy.
