Tho polico aro waking up to tl-r fact that not
all tho visitors at tho Ccntcnnhl w 11 be nolcnn.e

Byt nes is organizing bis foico tor an oflicthu
raid upon tho unity of ' ctooks '' who will bo at
tracted to tho city from all parts of tha rouutiy
liy tho prospect of a rich ban est to bo reaped
from the unwary visitois in the metropolis.
According; to his estimate, nt least 5,000 pro.
fcssinnal tlnovcs are to be counted upon, and if
ho succeeds in "jugging" them all, as be says
ho proposes to do, tlio Inspector and his sharp
eyed dotcetit es will bo kept pretty busy.
His regular dotectivu foico win bo increased
for tho occasion by tho seventy-live ward de
tectives and a scoro or moro special policemen,
who will bo given daily Icbsous in" crokology"
during tho present weok, so as toenablo them to
spot at once the mombers of the light-fingered
gentry as they atrivu in town by way of the fer
ries and railroad depots.
Oucp in tho city they would bo about as hard
to find as needles in a haystack. Tho Inspector
understands his business and doesn't propose to
let any chances for arrest of suspicious charac
ters slip through his fingers.
"I propose to art est evory thief and crook
that I cau lav my bunds on," ho said this morn
ing, "and have so instructed my men. 1 am
paid to assist in enforcing tho law and to pro
tect tho public and their property, and I propo-o
to do so by locking un men w ho are known to be
criminals. The only persons who can ohioct lo
my proceeding in this matter will bo the thieves
themselves, their pations and Mympatbizers.and
no one cares what they think.
" If the prisoners at o discharged by tho Court
I will have them reartostcd as soon as they
reach tho street and will keep tlio business up
until the celebration is over.
" I intend doing this for tho public good and
think it is bolter to arrest a thief liefoie he tobs
some one than to give him a clianco to steal half
a doen watches beforo he is put in a safe place.
The good, honest people who como to this city
to witness tlio celcliiation will be better pio
tected than thoy ever have liecn bofoie."

Ticket sp culators havo also succeeded in
capturing big blocks of tickets to tho rcviewiug

fiom $5 to $10 apieco already.

All bauds will lose a day's wages nnless their

want all the credit of the show. Four bundled
