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.

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. I.Ike

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.

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
