That the detectlvo bureau of Rich mond recovered two-thirds o* the property stolen in Kichmond during j919, la the statement of Captain A. j ,S. Wright, head of the bureau, in his annual report to the Chief of Police. The tot*! amount of goods stolen was valued at $298,155.3'J, while tho re covered property was valued at $194. 1J4.19. Because of the additional burdens ot the department, Captain Wright re quests four additional detcctives for 1020. Arresta during the year exceeded tho total of any previous year. 1,329 persons having been taken Into cus tody by the department during 1'J19. Tho Increase is due largely to the ox cflsslve number of petit and grand larcenies, as well as fugitives from justice arrfcetod In Richmond for other places, Tho latter totaled 105 arrests While tho doiAbined arrests on ldrceny chareos were 432. One person was arventod for attempted murder, atJd four on murder charges during the yoar. During the year 433 persons were bfought to the Richmond onice, finger printed, photograpiied and descriptions taken, with copies of each identillca tlon forwarded to the Identification ilUreau, Washington, D.

Efforts of the detective bureau were 'not confined to the limits of Rich mond, 360,000 circulars for stolen automobiles having been sent out; 1,661 letters received and answered, <md 685 telegrams acknowledged by the department. In spite of the acooihpliflbmenta or the bureau, Its duties ai*e increasing as shown In the report for 1819, and it is expected that 1320 will even ex coed tt?e activities of the past year. Kor that reason, Captain Wright states In his report: "Owing to the vast amount of busl- 1 ness that has been assigned to this bureau, it I# a physical Impossibility to glv? full justice to the complain ants with our limited force, and should j the hlerhest standard of efficiency be maintained. It will be absolutely neces sary to assign more tnefk with this de partment. 1 would, therefore, respect fully suggest and recommend that four more men be selected from the uni formed force."

ROMB, Jan. 17.?Foreigner a who visit Kiumo and enjoy the hospitality of Gabriolic d'Annunxlo, the "poet warrior," who rules thefe, are by no means agreed as to whether his ad Venture In Fftimo should bo supported. Two American women who recently returned from that city are enthu siastic about the poet. One of them said that ho seemed to her only the "embodiment of a spiritual movement," and thnt "hi# enthusiasm carrlos one away from all thought of hlni other than as the herald of his great Idea. He t=eems to bo a voice front another world." A hard-headed American Journalist said on returning to Home: "It is all hunk. It's the worst pipe drfcam 1 ever ra.n into. Some dreamers and Idealists may sympathize with D'An ntniKio's adventure, but I cannot tee anything hut harm In it for Italy. It is a blow to tho discipline of the army and navy and a menace to the Italian gove/nment. At. first It was rather amusing, but one gets tired of farce." Apparently there Is a wide diver gence of views Rmone Italians as among foreigners as to the value of the D'Annunzio expedition. Many Italians who aro enthusiast lo about it at first have chilled on second thought. This especially Is true among members of the conservative parties, who attribute tho great gains of the Socialists in the recent gen eral elections to the extreme National ist movement w? typified by d'Annun zio. ?
