Iiil?rrti|?tlonn lo Htmlm-a? Still Con? tinue Proprietor* Will lt<iu?v< l'liwit Unless I'role el oil Fmiii Violence. In Its i;r<ue of Wednesday, the Vlr ginian-Pilot reported the appearance of Messrs. McNalr and Wlllard, pro? prietors of the, Chlcora Mills, before the Hoard of Trade and Business Men's Association, and their recital of their grievances, mob alttacks, broken win? dows, assaults on themselves and fe? male employees and insults heaped on the girls they employ. Tills factory Is a vi luable one for Norfolk, although it is located just over the city dine in Norfolk county. This fact deprives ?be proprietors and em? ployees of the city police protection, and, from th<- st itetneilts of Messrs. Wlllard & McNalr, adequate protec? tion is not afforded them by the au? thorities of Norfolk county. TROUBLE YESTERDAY. Another instance of interruption to their business occurred yesterday. Mr. McNalr was seated at ins desk In his ollice attending to his business when a resident of the neighborhood entered the factory without permission and stood in the ollice doorway. Mr. McNalr stales that this party used violent language toward him and refused to leave the premises when or? dered to do so. lie was finally forcibly ejected by Mr. McNalr and some of his employees. Mr. McNalr stated that Buch Interruptions are not only annoy? ing, but s< ' ions from the standpoint of dollars and cents. For some minutes the factory was shut down on account of the disturbance. The plant employs about one hundred han<is, anil the money cost of the time so lost amounted to several dollars. Business men will readily see how serious a series of such petty annoy? ances can become, and Messrs. Wll? lard & McNalr have decided that un? less proper protection is afforded them they will be compelled to remove else? where. Members of the Board of Trade and Business Men's Association are alive to the importance of this mattetr to Norfolk, in view of their attempts to build up the general manufacturing and business interests of this section. Even considered in Its lesser light as but one of our plants, it is important to keep it here, for probably very few pcrsohs in Norfolk realize its present and prospective importance. Messrs. Wlllard .t McNalr employ about 100 hands and spend here week? ly about $700. Their plant is crowded with orders, they now having orders ahead that would keep their full force at work night and day for tho next two months. Their plant now Includes three build? ings, the main three-story brick fac? tory building, a two-story frame build? ing east of this, used by the Willard Manufacturing Company, and a two story brick building across the street from the latter, used for warehouse purposes. THE STOCKING FACTORY. The main feature of the business is the manufacture of ladies' misses' nnd children's hose. They have broken away from the usual southern rule of making mainly coarse goods and are making L'OO needle goods, line grade hosiery, in eight styles, using both Egyptian und domestic cottons. They are now running sixty-four ma? chines, an increase of fourteen ma? chines in the past year, thus increas? ing their capacity HO dozen n day. Tln lr market is thecntlreUnltcd States, their principal distributing points be? ing New York, Baltimore, Chicago, and San Francisco. W ILL ARD MANU FA CT CR ING COMPANY. A branch of the business of the firm is that of the Willard Manufacturing Company. This is conducted In the laboratory building oast of the Chl? cora mills. Here are manufactured numerous valuable and popularstatloners'supplies covered by thirty-two patents. Among these are stamp pads and stamp pad Inks, tracing cloth colors, tracing cloth cleaners, photograph colors, adheslves in jtirs and lubes, mucilages in bot? tles and tubes, padding adheslves for job printers nnd sticky fly paper. Their stamp Is said to b*junlike any other, nnd peculiarly valuable, in that the Impression from It dries istantly, give? a line letter press copy, nnd tlie ink penetrates deeply tnto the paper, thus making en sure or alteration im posslble. Their fly paper will bo put on the market next week. Their lab? oratory is in charge of Mr. II. S. Scad ding, late of Toledo. O. SALES Ti) GOVERNMENT. The firm received a letter yesterday from the Treasury Department of tho United Stat-s placing an order for for? ty-one gallons of its stamping Inks for the use of that department alone.

For T\TO Dnj?~A 1) Inner 1 lint Wan ?evi-r Srrved ? Mlln, lien in, Oniujfi ? ? nuil Cocoitiilllh IVone Too I. otnl for i lie Jloulief. A popular drama, "Held by the Ene? my," is well known to Norfolk theatre? goers, but a new and revised version was presented at the West End a few days ago. The dramatis porsonae in? clude a well-known hostess as leading lady, her dinner guests, two colored fe? male cooks, a kind-hearted neighbor, who comes to the rescue of the leading lady, and a heavy villain In the form of a mischievous monkey. This monkey Is one that knows how to paint the towii red and could even give pointers to some of the b'hoys. The details of it is us follows The scene opens a few days ago in the model kitchen of a handsome West End residence. The colored lady who presides over the culinary department of the establishment has had orders to get up a neat little dinner tor a num? ber of guests. Her tables are strewn witli dishes containing milk and cream, bananas and other fruits of the season, dainty cakes and tasty creations that would tempt Epicurus himself. The colored lady bustles about and all Is progressing smoothly when sud? denly a black, hairy apparition appears on the scene., and the curtain goes down on o lleelng cook and a monkey in full, sole and undisputed possession. ACT 2. The first act closed with a victorious simian holding the fort or (kitchen, rather). The second opens on the mon? key's banqt et. Quickly the fresh, sweet milk, the rich cream, the dainty pastry and oranges have disappeared. Soon the guests arrive, are ushered Into the parlor and, as the sumicr hour nears. ,the lady of the house ap? pears at the kitchen and surveys the scene of desolation. She beats a hasty retreat (the cook don't show up for two days), and Informs her guests that for reasons finite beyond her control, the supper will have to be postponed. (Exit guests sadly.) Then follows a period of deep cogitation for the lady, who is nlone in the world. She fears to offend her neighbor, the owner of the monkey, by complaint of its ac? tions, so lives as best she can. In'the remainder of her residence, leaving the kitchen in possession of the Invader. ACT 3. This opens with the exit of Mr. Mon? key via on open window munching bananas and wearing n very contented look. His next venture was Into an ad? joining yard where luscious pears hung ripening in the summer sun.. Alnck-a day, the owner of that lot has the trees yet, but tlie pears, whore are they? The monkey coulu answer that for he shinned up those trees like a small boy after apples. Sitting in Die trees he picked those pears one by one, dropped the peelings to the ground ami transferred the Juicy fruit to his de? partment of Hie Interior. ACT 4. The curtain rises in the fourth act on the kitchen of another residence near by. The colored cook is at work making "Ambrosia," a delicious com? pound of grated cocoantlts and oranges, and singing- away unconscious of Im? pending trouble, when a long, hairy arm is stretched out before her. A shriek, a rush, and she is gone and Mr. Monkey Is again victor of the field. He quickly recognizes the cocoanut as one of the dainties of his tropical home, and thus the oranges and other good tilings go to to satisfy that insatiable appetite. ACT 5. I (Tn which police Intervention is j threatened and Mr. Monkey Bees his f finish.) I For two days did this bold nntive of j the tropics range unrestrained, com I mittlng havoc unmentionable, and causing trouble the like of which has perhaps, never been known before, but. alas, all tilings must cud. und on the "Third day lie cam'1 in gi it1.*. On the morning of the third day the lady whose house was first Invaded, heard a strange noise at her window looking there she saw again her per ROCUtor. Not daring to leave her house ? because of her little children, sh<} went to another part of the dwelling and. calling to a neighboring lady. In fear and trembling, told her troubles. This Indy, who Is of an energetic disposition, at once telephoned to the owner of the monkey that unless she promptly saw to its capture and removal, she would telephone to the police station and have the police forces of Norfolk and Ports? mouth detailed to capture, try and shoot It, without benefit of clergy, and appeal, if necessary, to Governor Tyler to call out the military of the State and put an end to the reign of terror cxist I ing. Happily this trouble was averted, as the owner resorted to strategic meas? ures end captured the pet. it is prob? able Hint tho reported orders by resi? dents of the West End for ircm gratings for nil windows are caused by the ac? tions of the siminn referred to, though the Virginian-Pilot advances this as a theory and not as a condition that now confronts vs. (Note?The parties.
