Chief iavis was kept Interested yoster
day by tho appearance and expressions of
jK'ople who were not in tho leant surprised
at tho disclosures. The Chief refused to
credit tho validity of these convictions and
frankly acknowledges that he was, so to
peak, speechless over them. Such an ad
mission from tho head of the Memphis Po
liee Department will hardly inspire tho
public with an overwhelming conlldcuce
in his ponatrative shrewdness. How
man of family on a salary of $;xX) a year,
with no other legitimate business, could
live as Halt mn rh did, under the noso of
the Chief, and yet not rxtilo suspicion, is
seven days' wonder, if the Chief's ut
terances on this point may bo credited,
then there sre scores of men in Memphis

An Apckal reporter met Chief lavis at
the stutioiihouse at 5 o'clock p.m. yester
day. There was also tl'iero at tho time
Sergeant Put Ilackctt, Tho two ollieers
volunteered further explanation of how
the robberies were iwrpetrutcd, and how,
in their judgment, it was nothing to be
wondered at that its discovery was de
layed. (With diversion to explain that
never before has any regular investigation

Hut tho strangest fact is, according to tho
chief and Sergeant Hackett, that on tho

proerly and fully mude. Thus it stands

the eve of suspicion upon the guilty psrty,
the Memphis polico authorities now con
tent themselves with the plea, "We never
dreamed lie wss dishonest!" Ex-Turnkey
Turbeville, as sample of the blind, foolish
confidence rep-wed in baltiiiarsh, staled
that bo and Turnkey Hurdirk would,
whenever they took in money on mit

directed to tho chief.

"I don't know, unless tho Cotnmisiion

"Five hundred dollars."
Think of that for looseness in tho con
duct of city all'airs, at least in tho police
department! Only $."0u! Tho reporter
was in formed that there were frequently
thousands of dollars in his keeping, most

mained there several days. At tho timo

porter was informed, about So0(K) were in

that ho did not take that, but an explana

away a day or two before ho skipped.

would be nblo to recover $1,000 of tho
amount stated from tSultniarnli's bonds
