Vol. I. No. 28. We observe that our contemporary, the Virginian-Pilot, is having trouble with the police department over the discourteous treatment of one of its reporters by Captain Thomas F. Dalton, who attempted to dictate to the Virginian-Pilot as to what they should or should not print. No doubt by this time Dalton realizes what it is to monkey with the buzz-saw, and he further no doubt realizes that the press is far more powerful than the department of which he is a member. Our contemporary administered a well-merited rebuke last Sunday to the department, aiming particularly at Dalton, telling the policemen in plain words that the Virginian-Pilot would not' stand being dictated to. The “holier than thou” police board, assisted by the polkadot Chief of Police, held another star-chamber session on the night of September 26th, at the Mayor’s office. Everything was barred up tight and the utmost secrecy was maintained. One party reports that he believes he saw sentinels doing duty...

2 DRAMATIC CRITICISM. (A Criticism.) The four local dailies sent their best men to criticise “The Clansman,” that is, all except the Public Ledger, which had to get a Richmond newspaper man to come to its rescue, though it has on its staff the press agent for the Academy of Music. Decidedly the best of these criticisms, judged from any point of view, was that of Mr. Ballard, of the Dispatch staff. The effort of John A. Moroso evidences a studied inflation of the subject in order to the more accentuate his own cleverness in ripping it to pieces. He forces the opportunity to parade his knowledge and vocabulary. He exhausts himself upon something that is clearly, as he intimates, not worth the travail. Appearing without credit, and the objectional use of the personal pronoun, the criticism might be fairly judged as very good, but where the writer is so clearly anxious to exploit himself we must conclude that he has tendered the best of which he is capable, in which respect we have a ri...

PORTSMOUTH ITEMS. : OUR PORTSMOUTH DEPARTMENT, : : Conducted by W. T. Pope. : NAVY YARD NEWS. la an article published in the last issue of the Free-Lance on the subject of the new dock now under construction in the navy yard, we took occasion to commend the Norfolk Rusiness Men’s Association for the efforts they are making to have the dimensions of the same increased. Your humble scribe advocated the proposed extension and took the position that by lengthening the dock it would accommodate any of the larger class of vessels that are being built for the government and would thereby be of great benefit to this section on account of the additional number of men that would be employed to do the extra work. We have since learned from reliable parties, who are in a position to know whereof they speak, that the dimensions of the new dock are live hundred and fifty feet long by ninety-five feet wide, and its capacity is sufficient to accommodate any of the ships that are built and those tha...

Standing upon the test of their lower strata, judged alone by the large under element of the vicious, the depraved, and the despiritualized, no nation or race of earth are worth the space they occupy upon its surface. The most unfair and brutalizing proposition is to throw any people to such a test, and it is doubly unfair in the case of that people w ho were the last to emerge from the darkness of savagery and barbarism. The negro has given abundant evidence of the capacity for most of the virtues and higher qualities of other people. Among them may be found chastity, honor, fairness and a love of justice. The entire race, so far as our observation goes, has never produced a single miser. The negro is a careless, happy...

AN INSUFFERABLE NUISANCE. If Chief of Police Boush would take the police who are “guarding” the poker rooms and station them on Falkland street to arrest those negro sleep-murderers, he would be doing the proper thing. Fish and bread venders with auction bells and whistles at dawn are cause enough for summary action. It is a pity that an appeal to the magnanimity of the prominent business man seldom meets a response. Business success does indeed appear to crush out and obliterate the softer and kinder qualities of some people’s nature. Human distress or dire necessity are, and should properly be, above all rules and regulations and other business requirements. The “strictly business’’ attitude is well enough in strictly business channels, but it seems to have been carried into every phase of our social life, hardening human nature and poisoning all the better qualities. It is deaf to any just appeal and its blighting influence is everywhere felt. Our old friend, W. T. Gentry, of the...

6 THE LOVES OF SHAKESPEARE. Now Is this art high minister to Love, The very mirror that reflects Love’s face; Transcending earth lie takes from Heaven above The fire to add a lustre to Love’s grace. ’Tls tints, sweet Love, full pictured in his verse Thou livest in beauty through time-eating ages, That lovers may their love-racked souls immerse And road thy glories in his deathless pages. So shalt thou live on earth when cruel time Hath swept his dust storms over all we see, And from thy haven in some fairer clime Will smile to know that thus he gloried thee. Thus love Is fame—and love when linked with thee Is fame that lives through all eternity. —GEORGE F. VIETT. IMMORTALITY. Is the past annihilated, then, or only past; is the Future nonextant or only future? Those mystic faculties of thine, Memory and Hope, already answer, already through those mystic avenues, thou the Earth-blinded summonest both Past and Future, and communest with them, though as yet darkly, and with mute beckon...

THE NEGRO PROBLEM. (Continued from page 4) ica. We of this generation have nothing to fear from the negro, and I limit the meaning of the word fear in this case to the threat of social equality only. Left to himself the negro would probably remain to the end of the chapter in the position he now occupies, unfortunately, howevere, there is a large class of fanatics ignorant of his nature and his needs, living In sections remote from the scene of the real problem, who arc assiduous in forcing him to Illegitimate aspirations, and to tilings for which lie Is in no way capacitated. Tills threat must be met with action, and this action must take the form of laws in which the demarcation between the races must be clearly shown and rigidly maintained. The history of nations has demonstrated the fatal fact that where two distinct and separate races live together on the same soil the process of race corruption Is an Insiduous but a sure result. The beginning Is scarcely perceptible; the lower...

Vol. I. No. 29 NORFOLK RAILWAY AND LIGHT COMPANY'S FREIGHT LINE The Sabbath had lapsed one and a half hours and the bell of St. Mary’s Church announced the hour of 1 :30 a. m. Monday. Morpheus held undisputed dominion and even the busy thoroughfare of Church near Main street was hushed and quiet. The slumberers occupying rooms in the vicinity were sunk in that deep sleep peculiar to the “wee sma’ hours,” and the trees of St. Paul’s church-yard across the way nodded their foliage in dreamy caution as if fearful of disturbing the general repose. Suddenly from afar there came a noise of many noises. Squeaking, grinding, jarring and a variety of other discords suddenly stormed the silence and upset the peace. People turned in their beds uneasily, and as the noise came nearer awoke completely. It was the City Freight Line of the Norfolk Railway and Light Company hauling sand through the city at this early hour that disturbed the general repose. The train consisted of four box cars loaded...

2 FOLKS AND THINGS THAT DON’T LOVE US. The Norfolk Railway and Light Company for good and sufficient reasons. The Telephone monopoly ditto, Messrs. Watters and Sterling and Boush. The public official engaged in or contemplating illegitimate deals. The ordinary envious idiot of no mental capacity who may always be counted upon to hate the excellence he can never hope to reach. The local newspaper man, upon whom the conviction has been forced and driven home, that in comparison, both himself and his paper look like thirty cents and the last in the till. 'The self-constituted critic and smug “liferary” person v. ho has not yet realized the immensity of his own ignorance, and the fact that wealth and position do not necessarily include intellect. The chap to whom his neighbor’s progress is gall and wormwood. The successful business man who not only withholds his aid, but decrys things above his comprehension for fear of elevating merit to the dignity that is its due. The poor weakling w...

PORTSMOUTH ITEMS. : OUR PORTSMOUTH DEPARTMENT. : : Conducted by W. T. Pope. : A MUCH-NEEDED IMPROVEMENT. While large sums of the people’s money have been expended In paving - certain streets, our principal thoroughfare, and the one most frequently traveled, is in a more dilapidated condition than any street in Portsmouth, and it lias been the most neglected, and judging from the indifference shown to the numerous appeals and the oft-expressed wishes of a large majority of our taxpayers, the prospects arc not favorable for an early rectification of its condition. The stranger who visits us soon learns that there is little of interest to attract his attention in our little city by the sea. He finds here no imposing public buildings, and but few structures of attractive architecture to excite ids admiration of please his fancy. No large factories to impress him with the energy and enterprise of our people, no public park (a long-felt want by a long-suffering people) where he can go to ...

Plain Street TELEPHONE SERVICE AND COMPETITION. We have before discussed the telephone situation in this city and the distressing nuisance that two distinct services inflict upon the public. The telephone business is of that peculiar kind in which monopoly makes for the public benefit. This being the case, competition only confuses and complicates a service which should be above all things comprehensive, orderly and systematic. If two companies are permitted to render service, why not three or a dozen or a score? But no business man would welcome such a state of affairs, no matter how bad the service or how oppressive the methods of an existing company. The real and only sensible solution of the matter is municipal ownership of the telephone service, but until this may be accomplished, any competition in this b...

Our correspondent who signs himself “Fair Play,” does not give his name and should feel well treated at even this brief mention. “Fair Play” accuses us of prejudice against Thomas Dixon on account of our criticism of his drama. The leading meaning of prejudice is prejudgment, and as we have carefully read Dixon’s book and waited until after his play was brought out to criticize it, we hardly stand guilty of the charge. If the correspondent will re-read our criticism, he will discover that we suggested no such foolish thing as a “suppression” of Dixon’s play. We advocate Uncle Tom’s Cabin and The Clansman running just so long as they can find audiences, but that does not deter us from criticising and telling the truth about either or both of them. We consider one play quite as bad as the other. Whatever the outcome of the case against Justice J. J. Blick now occupying so much prominent space in the local dailies, this paper will never believe that the ’squire intentionally did wrong....

6 THE CITY OF “BROTHERLY LOVE.” “The crusade against street beggars goes merrily on. A blind man who became impertinent to an officer when ordered to desist playing on Walnut street was arrested. Thirty-seven men with no visible means of support were taken to the station and gvien twentyfour hours to leave town. It is proposed to make Philadelphia a most unpleasant place for beggars and tramps. Yesterday was one of the coldest days of the season, the mercury rising but little above the zero mark throughout the day.’’—Philadelphia correspondence of a Pittsburg paper about 1895. And bleak was Hie blast of the bitter north w ind In the eity of “Brotherly Love.” And sonic in fine wrappings its wrath did not mind In the city of “Brotherly Love.” But some wretches shivered in pitiful rags, For the north wind that fluttered a thousand bright flags Was cold as the blast o’er Alaska’s bleak crags In the city of “Brotherly Love.” Xot colder, alas, than the hearts of the crowd In the city of “...

WHEREIN WE OBSERVE PECULIARITIES. Is the world growing tamer or is Norfolk an unusually tame town? In the writer’s boy-hood it used to be that a fight was a matter of daily occurrence and a matter of small comment. Saturday nights in particular were never passed without one or two small sized riots, making a pleasant break in the monotony and dispensing cheerfulness all round. Nor were these fights and altercations confined exclusively to the rough element. Gentlemen with a grievance did not hesitate to doff their coats and wade into each other in true manly style, and one promising feature was the absence of the interminable talk and threats of which our latter day fightsers are so full. After all it was not to their discredit. It is well that passion and indignation should sometimes find a vent; it is well that men should know and understand the man-hood that exists in his brother man, and should sometimes feel the physical force of a just argument. Bluff and “hot air” seem to hav...

Vol. I. No. 30. Light and Power Competition a Necessity. NORFOLK MERCHANTS SHOULD GET SOLIDLY BEHIND SUCH A MOVEMENT We regret that space forbids the reproduction of a large number of communications we have from time to time received regarding our attitude on the street railway and lighting system of this city. These communications are overwhelmingly approbative of our stand against the Norfolk Railway and Light Company, and give evidence that there is a strong under-current of feeling among many citizens against the service, its methods and its charges. The Norfolk Railway and Light Company is the greatest corporation in this city, rich enough to buy what it wants, with many, apparently, to do its bidding. We have noticed that wherever its interests are opposed to that of the public, the public generally get the small end of the ham, despite the fact that the public engage officials and pay them to attend to its business and protect it. A conservative estimate of daily street car r...

2 NORFOLK’S NEW THEATRE. A WORD TO THE WISE CONCERNING LOCATION We welcome the news that this city is to have another theatre in which high grade companies may be presented to the Norfolk public. If there ever was need for such opposition, now and here is the time and place. We have advocated this very thing for the past two or more months through the columns of this paper, and not alone that, but we claim all the credit for bringing the opposition here. Other people have acted upon our suggestions, and while they are welcome to whatever benefit hereafter to be derived therefrom, we might show, if we liked, that we anticipated them in every step they have taken. All this, however, is not particularly germane to the subject. Opposition was sooner or later bound to come, but the general public have the Free-Lance to thank for its early appearance. We observe, according to the daily newspapers, that the Messrs. Shubert, of the opposition theatrical enterprises, are alleged to have clos...

PORTSMOUTH ITEMS. : OUR PORTSMOUTH DEPARTMENT. : : Conducted by W. T. Pope. : Mr. Editor: A most gratifying reception was accorded Secretary Shaw, the Honorable Mr. Yost and Colonel Lamb by the people of Norfolk last Friday night. Secretary Shaw is a most delightful speaker and held his audience entranced for two hours. There are some foolish people of the opposite party who are trying to make it appear that there was nothing new in this speech, as “it was confined mostly to the tariff.” Well, the tariff question is an old one, but the gentleman that addressed the people last Friday evening proved that this old question has been an old and true friend to the people of this country. By the way, the Democrats don't have so much to say against the tariff as once the}- did—on one occasion left it out of their national platform altogether. What Mr. Yost had to say about public education in Virginia was not a little (?) The reception given Colonel William Lamb at the Academy of Music last...
