Sho Robbed Her Benefactor.
One of the good old fashioned legends
that helps to throw a sidelight of romance
on the hard facts of history is to tho effect
that the sacred geee of fiome by their hiss- '
ing saved the eternal city from capture by
barbarian enemies. For this tho broad
billed fowls received due honor, then, and
also through future ages, until the empire
of the Cscsars reached its end. Save for
this, and one or two other equally unau-
thenticated tales, the goose has been known
until recently merely as a bird givon to
water and simple ways, not, mentally brili- '
iant, and valuable chiefly as furnishing 1
feathers for beds and toothsome morsels
for the tabic. But now there arises a goose j
noted, like Lucifer, for bad eminence. This
bird is the property of Mrs. Byram, of
Dover, N. J., and was raised a pet, being
allowed tho freedom of the house, and hav
ing neither tho fear of death nor starvation
before her eyes.
That she shamefully abused the confi
dence of hor indulgeut mistress was clearly
demonstrated by developments of recent
date. In a place which tho gooso was sup
posed to be using for the legitimate pur
poses of a nest Mts. Byram found two gold
thimbles, a tortoise shell comb, scarf pins,
spools of sewing silk, and (showing mora
than all else the desperate and misguided
character of the bird) a "long wind" Water

knocking at the door in quest of edible
dainties, and on being admitted and petted
would s.eek a sunny corner of tho room and
ostensibly doze. When left alone she pros

fully for a while: but at last, like other
thieves, she encountered discovery and dis
grace. A Famous IVar Chief.

A Big Force Made Up of Stal
0FFICESS OF TITC DEPAETJIENT.
The Nationalities to Which the Patrol
men Belong Tho Physical Require
ments for Appointment The City Di
vided Into Fiva inspectors' Districts.
The police force of Chicago consists of
1,850 men, divided among the different
nationalities as follows: American born, 18
percent.; Scandinaviqn, 6 per cent.; Ger
man, IS per cent.: Irish, CO per cent.; all
maintained at an annual cost of a little
over $3,000,000. Physically considered it is
not outranked by any force in the world,
the rule that no man shall be admitted un
less meeting to the full the required stand
ard being strictly observed. Morally and
intellectually it compares favorably with
the police of all large cities, and its mem
bers are neither better nor worse than the
average men who rely on political place for
a means of livelihood.
But so long as the temptation offered to
induce them to stray from the straight
line of duty is not too great, and the ques
tions they may be called to solve are not
too profound, Chicago may rest secura
that no discredit will be reflected upon it
by the brass buttoned officials. As for
bravery, the Haymarket riot, still fresh in
everybody's memory, is a sufficient guar
antee that the force is well ablo to cope
with any outbreak short of a well organ
ized revolution that may arise.
The accusation that the police depart
ment of Chicago is a political machine,
run at equal speed by whichever party
may be in power, is fjraqucntly made. To
obtain a position on the force, unless tho
application is indorsed by some influential
politician, or a sadden increase is made
necessary by the arising of some unlooked
for contingency, is said to bo absolutely
Frank O'Neill, an attache of police head
quarters, and whoso term of service ex
tends over sixteen years, when asked by
the writer recently what chance an appli
cant lacking political influence stood for
getting an appointment, replied:
"The same chance he stands for getting
Etruck bv lightning."
"Not a bit."
"During your long service how many ap
plicants without such influence have been
been appointed to the force?"
"Not a single one."
"As a man of experience what detriment
to the personnel of the department do you
think is had through such a mode of ap
pointment?" "No more than through nny other
method. Physically the men could not be
better, and morally well, black sheep
dwell ihtfvery fold."
"Once in the force, what are an officer's
chances for remaining?"
"It deponds entirely on the man himself.
If ho has taken to heart Wolsey's advice to
fiing away ambition and will not try to
violate that injunction ho may, if ho keep
sober and attend to his business, remain
until he serves his twenty years and is re
tired on a pension at halt pay.
"But let him be ambitious to rise, and if
ho does not have political influence strong
enough to buoy him up, his official days
are numbered; for every other club swinger
possessing a little moro influence and" who
is striving for promotion will, through the
instinct of self preservation, do his best to
crush a possible though less powerful ri
val. The best plan a young patrolman can
follow, if he is satisfied with his $1,000 a
year, is to drop ail thoughts of promotion
and keep as far away from tho calcium
light glare of the city hall and headquar
ters as he possibly can."
The force is headed by a general superin
tendent, who is Usually referred to a3
chief, and who draws a salary of &5,000 a
year, a comfortable amount were it not
for the fact that the tenure of the ofilce is
as uncertain as that of tho administration.
The present incumbent, a gentleman in
every sense of the word, mostapproachablo
and of unquestioned integrity, but who,
until his appointment a few months ago,
could only boast of such police experience
as one term in tho cfiicu of United States
marshal for tho northern district of Illi
nois gave him, supplanted Chief Hubbard,
aLo an approachable gentleman of strict
integrity, who had at the time of his ap
pointment to the general supenntendency
an activo and conanual police experience
of sixteen years.
The next in grade to the general super
intendent are the inspectors, of whom there
are five, each having charge of one of the
five districts of the city and drawing a sal
ary of $2,800. They are the chiefs of their
districts, and are held accountable to the
general superintendent for everj iking that
occurs therein. Their immediate inferiors
are thirteen captains, who aro paid 52,250
each; then forty-eight lieutenants at $1,500
each, forty-eight patrol sergeants at L,200
each, seventy-four desk sergeants at $1,
102 50 each, lfcO patrolmen for duty at

can feel that his tenure of office oepanas
solely upon the praenpt discharge of his
duty, and that promotion will be due to
merit, not influence, the possibilities of im
proyemrat will never be exhausted.
Discharges from the farce are very sel
dom made, transfers to a distant station
beingusedasa means of punishment in
stead. Some years ago every man's official
head sat on Ms shoulders" only so long as
the captain or iieufcsnaat saw fit. II
either Oiiaoer entertainsd a ditlike against
a subordinate, no matter how slight the
dislike might be, a recommendation for the
subordinate's dlsefearga was sent to head
quarters and the disobarse caoe back by
return messeaser. Now, however, the
only manner by which a men may be dis
pensed with, exeept for a flagrant offensej
is by a trial bsfore the trial board, which
sits with open dosrsevery Tuesday evening.
And even should the beard find a defend
ant guilty and order his discharge, the
chief may countermand the order.
One of the latest feat ures added to the
working methods of the department is the
issuing every afternoon to each member ol
the force of a buJlotin containing a descrip
tion of every criminal wanted and supposed
to be in the city, together with information
about his crime, also a list of all articles
stolen during the preceding twenty-four
hours. This idea has pravedin the twe
months that have elapsed since its adop
tion its worth as an assistance to the men.
It originated with Chief Marsh, who, with
a smile, dsclares that he has in the course
of propagation a number of other ideas
which, whan developed, will make Chi
cago's force the finest in all respects in the
world. When asked if one of his ideas is
the divorcing of pontics from policing ht
looked Aviso but said nothing.
Since the annexations of a year or so age
Chicago covers an enormous ground area,
and many of the blue coated officers have
long distances to travel in performing theii
duty. That they do their work admirablj
is not to be doubted.
Headquarters are in the big building oc
cupying the block bounded by Clark,
Washington.Randolph and La Salle streets,
and which serves as a homo for all the
principal officials both of tho city of Chi
cago and the county of Cook. One suite oi
rooms is devosed to the use of Chief Marsh,
another is occupied by the "central detail,''
and a third is the rendezvous of the de
tectives. Bsncath the floor of the "flj
cops' " apartments are a numbir of under
ground cells where suspected persons are s&
eluded from the light ef day until theu
captors have "made out a case."

Desplaines street station, a picturo ol

From that point Captain Ward started
with his sqund of policemen to suppress
the Haymarket meeting on the night when
an unknown Anarchist threw the bomb
which killed and wounded so many people
and caused the noose to be placed about
the necks of Spies and his fellow agitators.
All in all, despite "intlooence" and like
drawbacks the police department of Chi
cago is one worthy of honor and entitled to
Dickens and His American Prlnon.
In Dickens' "American Notes" no picture
of misery is more vividly drawn than that
of his visit to the Eastern penitentiary at
Philadelphia. Mr. Itichard Vaux, who
was an inspector of the prison at the time,
showed Dickens great courtesy, and says
that Dickens said to the president of the
board of inspectors, after the viait had
ended, "Mr. Ijcvan, of all the public in
stitutions I have visited, this is the only
one where the relations of tlw governors to
the governed appear to be those of parent
to child." He wrote in his book: "The
system here is rigid, strict and hopeless
solitary confinement. I believe its effects
to be cruel and wrong." There was in
sincerity in one of these statements. The
prisoner Charles Langheimer, whom
Dickens spoke of so pitifully, lived to be
much okier than the novelist, and, after
serving a dozen terms in the prison, bogged
to be a-llowed to live there till he died.
"It's the pieasantest home I ever had,"
said he. I?is request was granted, and ho
died in the prison of old age. Dickens'
description of his awful torture was not
Death in a Quicksand.
A more horrible event has seldom been

Parcels wad digging a well In his door yard.
He descended into the hole and began to

its bottom. His son tried to A15 him out,
but witbeat avail. Neighbors cane soul
