of “down with the ring” and “up with good government” is an old campaign trick. Remember the October primary, vote for the best men —men who have been tried and found true in office and out of it—and let no man interfere with the casting of the ballots. IT MIGHT PROVE DANGEROUS. And to Chief Boush we would say: BEGIN NOW AND INVESTIGATE THE PART POLICEMEN ARE TAKING AND WILL TAKE IN THE COMING ELECTION. WHAT’S THE POLICE BOARD GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? In last week’s issue of The Growler attention was called to one William Raines, a member of the police force, who, his wife claims, has deserted her; that she is in feeble health, has to sew for a living and that she reported the desertion to the honorable mayor. The wife’s statement that she has been deserted goes unchallenged by Raines, who still struts around town in his brass and blue, garbed in authority and with the ugly charge of the wife hanging over him. We have heard from several parties that the statement of Mrs. Raines is corr...

6 GUOVEII CLEVELAND. Through that unconscious association of ideas for which there is no accounting, we can never think of Grover Cleveland without the image of John L. Sullivan appearing before us, and vice versa. When either one of these great men appear upon the mental horizon the vision of the other looms large behind him, and in seeking for a solution of the phenomenon we find it in several striking manifestations of similarity whereby their identity runs in parallel lines. They were both contemporaneous national characters. From the standpoint of avoirdupois they are both mighty men. The “sporty" element in each is developed to a high degree. They have both done noble work for the liquor trust. They have both made a great fortune. In their mental and physical characteristics they are both of the same type, and it is indeed questionable whether they could not have changed places and tilled each other’s destiny with equal satisfaction. Both are of the bull-dog breed, possessing ...

PLENTY OF ’EM HERE. “Good Talking Parrot for Sale” is the sign displayed in front of a local bird store. We know a whole heap of talking parrots around this ancient and honorable burg, and they walk and talk just like men. The people have an eye on these parrots, however, and there’ll be something doing soon. THE FACE IS OUT. Last week we stated that the banner of the candidate on upper Church street was taken down because the painter forgot to put in the eyes in the face of the candidate.

8 CRACK CAVALRY” COMPANY FOR NORFOLK? The ancient and honorable profession of arms must ever hold a front place In the admiration of a sturdy and warlike people, and no branch of it excites deeper interest or pride than the cavalry. There is something soul-thrilling in the spectacle of a fine body of uniformed horsemen with the panoply and insignia of their service displayed amid the strains of martial music and the cheers of the onlookers. These are sights familiar enough in the larger cities of Europe, where they do much to alleviate the monotony of life, but the cavalry feature is a very unusual one in most American communities. Horsemanship is peculiarly a pastime of gentlemen, and it strikes The Growler that there are sufficient gentlemen of wealth and leisure in Norfolk to get together and give the town a crack cavalry organization. A matter of but fifty mounts would make a splendid showing in military parades, and there are many times that number of men here able to maintain ...

2 WEAK-KNEES IN THE PULPIT. There is scarcely any profession in which the tribe of Weak-Knees is so well represented as in the modern ministry, and in this category we wish to include every sect of Christianity, and some branches of Judaism. It strikes The Growler that modern religion is fast developing into a species of social-business affair, of which the dominant forces are a smug hypocricy and a nauseating affectation, coupled with a cringing spirit of compromise. There is a breaking away from the old ideals and the stern discipline of the past, and in place of the self-sacrficing spirit which actuated the early devotees of religions, we are confronted with a menacing antithesis in the shape of the “business” bishop, the society preacher and the compromising rabbi. Let us first examine the subject from a Christian standpoint; but before doing so let us impress upon the reader that in treading upon such delicate ground The Growler has no desire to rellect upon any man’s creed or ...

powerless before the accumulated evidence of the centuries, standing like Gibraltars of argument against his small shafts. Leaving out the question of faith and the wonderful intuition of the Christian heart, there would still remain to overwhelm Mr. Rabbi a weight of historical evidence beyond the power of the accumulated non-Christian intellect of the earth to controvert. And while Mr. Rabbi might not have become a convert to Christianity, he would have been compelled to admit the possibility of that creed being true, for upon refusing this possibility, as a consistent man of intellect that he is, he would be driven for sanctuary to the ranks of anti-Biblical materialistic philosophy. From any standpoint the gentleman’s contention as to the error of the immaculate conception is a weak one, but it is nothing like as weak as the position of those Christian ministers who passively acquiesced in his findings, and left it for a little weekly, with the mellifluous title of Growler, to r...

magnanimous Railway and Light Company, which offers its conductors five dollar gold pieces for catching people who spit in the cars, took off the six-tickets-for-a-quarter and charged the patrons five cents a ride. The excuse then was that the price of coal was so high that selling six tickets for twenty-five cents would bankrupt the poor concern. Well, the coal famine has long since been forgotten, and still you have to pay a nickel for a ride. Will Mr. Hathaway please explain why those tickets were not restored? If he is as good at explaining this as he is on hygienic matters, he’s a pippin. Does Mr. Hathaway ever think of the rate of speed at which the cars are driven through the streets of the city—we mean the cars of the Norfolk Railway and Light Company. The ordinance, we believe, calls for a speed of eight miles an hour in the city limits. How many men will swear that they believe that the cars of this company sometimes run at the rate of fifteen miles an hour ? We believe it...

6 THE GROWLER AND THINGS LITERARY. The literary world is under the impression that Longfellow instituted the style of verse in which his “Hiawatha” is written. The Growler is the first to set the literary world right upon this subject by denying it, with the assertion it has discovered the same style among the writings of an obscure poet of the sixteenth century. It has all the material necessary to support the assertion, evidence which is not necessary at this time. We only wish to remark that it is the easiest and most unsatisfactory style of verse extant; for instance, taking The Growler for our subject, we might proceed indefinitely like this: The Growler. Gentle reader, buy The Growler, You will never miss your nickle, You will get a full five cents’ worth, Wit and humor, puns and pathos. We will tell you of the goo-goos, How they goo-goo at the ward clubs, How they love to scold their neighbors. Love to magnify their follies, Love to swell their faults and errors. We will tell...

8 CHIME OF BELLS FOR NORFOLK? The Growler was forestalled a little upon its cavalry proposition, but here is one concerning - the originality of which there can be no doubt, and we hope to live to see it in operation. Among the suggestions that have been made and will be made for the elaboration of the Jamestown Exposition, we have noticed that no one has yet thought of having a fine chime of bells to remain as a permanent memorial of that affair and the historical incident which it celebrates. Of all the pleasant heritages that antiquity has handed down to us, there is nothing more beautiful and poetical than “the bells.’’ Those people who have heard a really fine chime of bells are aware of the potency to charm which they possess. Like all beautiful things, a proper chime of bells is a joy forever. They give a voice to memory and a tongue to the music of the heart. No “City Beautiful’’ can ever be complete that lacks this sweet and kindly feature. Amid the jarring and discords of ...

r 2 S NORFOLK AFFLICTED WITH NUISANCES. Every issue of the “Growler” since its first copy, has had something to say about the many nuisances with which this suffering community is afflicted. These nuisances still, jexist aind not a single step has been made towards their alleviation. The wise authorities remain smugly indifferent plaints, evidently thinking that the paper is without influence. If they could read the batch of communications that have reached this office regarding the conditions we have aired, it might change their minds and stir them to a little salutary activity. We make the claim that both the Board of Health and the Police Departments of this city are totally inefficient, and not only this, hut that they show a wilful and petty disregard of just complaints in the direct line of their duty. The people of Norfolk should mark every one of the men connected at the present time with these offices, and remember them well if they ever seek future political favors. We hav...

WHY MAYES WASN’T FIRED. “One of the significant features of the “good” government politics of Norfolk developed at the meeting of the City Democratic Committee, which has a large majority of the good government men who were elected by the October election of 1903—the most scandalous election fraud which ever occurred in Virginia. An itinerant salesman who has been in Norfolk only three years, was selected by the “good” government faction for a judge of election. Since then he has been held for trial as accessory to the forgery of the transfer papers of six voters who were supposed to intend to vote against the “good” government candidates. The salesman was with the “good” government man who is accused of the forgery when the fraudulent transfer was attempted, without any explained reason for being with him and with strong enough presumptive evidence to hold him for trial with the principal. That would unfit a sensitive and proud man to act as judge. It would prompt a fair and honest...

Box 887 A FAIR PRIMARY DEMANDED. The “good” government party of the city of Norfolk cannot afford to have anything but a fair primary. As Mr. Purdie said at the meeting of the city committee when the Mayes matter was up, “we cannot afford to buck public opinion, and the October primary should be a warning to us.” Indeed the October primary should be an awful warning to the “good” government party. Such doings as were perpetrated on that day stirs the blood of the freeman as nothing else will, and when he is denied the right of suffrage, which a steal amounts to, it incites anarchy. The election which is now but a short time off is for salaried offices. There are some “good” government candidates, and some who are not allied with the administration, but we are glad to state that very little mud has been siting th...

HIS HONOR’S DREAM. “Signs, omens, dreams, predictions, Surely these are not fictions: And many facts which history doesn’t cite Prove we are right.” —The Mascot. Lovers especially are overmuch inclined to dream. The lovesick Romeo is made to say that “dreams are the children of an idle brain; begot of*nothing but vain fantasy.” Romeo was evidently a nice, sober, young man and knew nothing of the dreams which follow imbibitions of “high balls,” “golden slippers,” and the various other concoctions which fire the imagination and set the feet on the bias; else hewould have admitted that dreams are born of other things but “vain fantasy.” Politicians also have their dreams, and when the dreaming faculties are stimulated by brewery product, or fired by the “cup that cheers,” such dreams are very entertaining. While the spell is on they are always of the optimistic order, and as the town affords ample opportunity to keep up the supply of dreamfood, we are confronted for the most part with ...

6 in triumph through the streets of Norfolk to open the Jamestown Exposition, His conveyance was rather unusual, and consisted of a little push cart to which were harnessed four lights of the “good government” faction. The four comrades who were hitched to this little wagon were Gunn, Blick, Jones the tailor and a tall, dark man whose identity was uncertain. A little in front of these rode Chief Boush, with drawn sword, astride a polar bear. An admiring populace lined the streets, and the enthusiasm was great. Cries of delight greeted the genial Mayor and his happy companions. Every now and then the cry would go up, “Who Made the Push Cart?” and, like a mighty roar would come the answer from uncounted numbers of throats, “Gunn!” In this state the pageant wended its way to the grounds of the Exposition, where they were met by a slender individual of rather nervous demeanor, who told them that “there’s nothing doing.’’ Asked for an explanation of such an unusual proceeding, the nervou...

was a critical moment and things looked dark, when a dauntless form was seen to rush forward and with a wild yell of defiance, make for the middle of the bridge sword in hand. It was Gray Tunstall, and at his heels strode the majestic figure of Abe Moses resolved to perish with him or die in the attempt. They shook their fists at the advancing hosts' who came onward. Our interpid heroes met them in the middle of the bridge and a fearful conflict ensued. Port Arthur was undone. It would need another Macaulay to do justice to the scene. Severed limbs and heads darkened the air about the two heroes. The waters of Tanner’s Creek were dyed crimson. Moses was overborne by the force of superior numbers and made prisoner. Tunstall resolved never to be captured alive, and with his sword in his teeth, he jumped overboard with the intention of swimming to Norfolk. This had to be prevented, and the champion swimmer of the Public Ledger, with a Gatling gun strapped to his back immediately follow...

$ LITTLE GROWLERS. Even the Navy Department, which everybody regards as a model of proficiency, has something to learn, and might well do a little imitating on its own account and to everybody’s advantage. At all British naval ports, whenever sailors and marines are allowed ashore in numbers they are always accompanied by a patrol, who march the streets and see that order is maintained by the soldiers and sailors. This relieves the local authorities of considerable responsibility and trouble, and prevents such distressing occurrences as the riot at Hampton, in which a soldier was killed by a cowardly policeman who was not man enough to handle him with his hands and club. The Growler earnestly recommends this feature to the consideration of the naval authorities at Washington, to whom it is sending a marked copy of this article. We notice that one Thomas Dixon, who has the distinction of having written the three very worst books in the last score of years, in a recent article heaped ...
