The sreutleniau conllrtned tho most of
the above statement. He knew nothing
of .Mr. Hall's historv nri'viouii to his em
ploymeut by his llrm. He had gained
his employers' utmost confidence, and
Mr. Sard exnrcssed extreme rcirret that
the allair had occurred. Voting Hall had
received a. moderate salary, utiiplo for or
dinary living, with a little to spare, but
hiulbccomo rather extravagant. This,
jiowcver, aroused no suspicions.
One dav last week a friend ot Mr. Sard

which suited him, nnd referred to retail
dealers whero one llku it could lie ob

told Mr. Sard that hu had bought that
saiiu stove at tin miction slnre lar lower
than wholesale price. Mr. Sard su-nect-ed
something wrong, so hu went with the
gentleman to tho uuno store, where ho
obtained n description of tliu man who
took It there, which hit Mr. Hall exactly.
Mr. Sard requested tho auctioneer to uo
to tho store and Identify tliu man, and no

Ills thieving began about two week

try of It on the order-book nnd cheek il,
as though it had been charged up, but
tilled to make the charge. In thfs way
he eluded discovery. He took In this
manner thirteen stove". Ihe entire value
of which wns about 100, four of which
wens recovered, and Jim ba anc sold.
Thev were left with M A. Ilutters and

I'or Ihe 1'ollcn.
(St. Iouli Tirurv)
A pistol is a necessary and usual por
tion of a policeman's equipment, and it
Ik intended that ho should use It 01 lit
ting occasions. An to when, on whom.
and for what purpose hu should lire it, j
these arc quetions which deieiid largely i
upon the circiunstanc;! of every case, but 1
which inu-t be decided by tliu policeinen '
upon the spur ol the moment, with as
much discretion a may afterward lie
u-ed by a jury In the Investigation of the
shooting. Ills po.'Siblu to do too little
shooting, and to do too much ; to be too
quick, and to be too cau
tious. As bctwi.en tliesij extreme,
weare Inclined to believe that the police
men of St. Louis us a rule, choose the
latter. The reason for this belief is found
hi the fact that the rowdy element In
St. LouU does not entertain that whole
some fear ol policeinen which tho pub
lic good requires to be Instilled into their
savage breasts. Ca-es of resisting olll
ceraaru too Ireqiicnt, and the rowdies
know how thev can beat
polleein'ii with Impunity. If they
are liually arrested, the eji-e'iaru brought
before the criminal courts, where they
give straw ball for their appearance, tor
leit their bonds and that is the last of the
matter. The-e rullhuis have so little re
speet lor Ihe Jaw and its olllot r, that they
regard policemen as their proper prey.
The reason for this U tliat the ppllcciueii
are too enuiioiH about u-lugthcirpl-loN.
They do not shoot often enough, tire too
many .-hots hi the air. and do not shoot
straight enough when they lire
with deadly Intent. Of course
wo do not nppiove ol unneces
sary or injudicious liootlng, but It Is not
well to be too cautious We respeetlully
uggest that Chief Harrigan and Captiiu
llurge-s deliver regular lectures to the
force, instructing them In the Use ot the
revolver, anil teaching them how to use
it with discretion and ell'eet. A -hooting
gallery for the force, with dally practice,
is also advisable. Train the "police so
that they -hall know lust how and when
to u'e their icvolvers. and they will be
able to iinpre-s the lawless with the be
lief that tliey are not to be trilled with.
A the matter now stands, the bummers
have the best of It.
