CRIME AND POLICE.
THE ANNUAL. REPORT OF CHIEF J. M. GLASS. An Excellent Showing Made by the Force During the Past Year—Several Im provements Recommended—A Sum mary of the Arrests. Chief of Police Glass filed his annual report of the work performed hy his de partment during the pastyear with City Clerk Teed yesterday. It is a volumin ous document, containing an immense amount of matter of more or less inter est to the general public. Credit is due to Secretary Curran for the manner in which it is drawn up, and the amount of work he has expended upon it. Among other items pf interest em bodied in the report is a summary of the arrests made by the police during the year from December 1, 1889, to Novem ber 30, 1890, inclusive, the total being 2575. Of this number 2 were for adultery ; attempt at arson, 1 ; assault, 10; assault with deadly weapons, 27; assault with intent to commit murder, 9; attempted bribery, 1; begging 49; battery, 180; burglary, 24; attempted burglary 2; contempt of court, J!; carrying concealed weapons, 30; cruelty to children, 1; cruelty to animals, 5; committing nui sances, 2; crime against nature, 1; drunks, 815; disturbers of the peace, 310; embezzlement, 7 ; exhibiting deadly weapons, 2; fast driving, Xi; forgery, 0; discharging lire arms within city limits, 3; violating the fire ordinances, 8; gam bling, 83; violating the garbage ordi nances, 15; violating hack ordinances, 1; violating hitching ordinance, 100; inde cent exposure, 2; using profane lan guage, 1; grand larceny, 14; petit lar ceny, 147; attempted larceny, 2; violat ing license laws, 82; violating laundry ordinance, 8; lottery ticket selling, 99; miscellaneous misdemean ors, 107; malicious mischief, 17; main taining a nuisance, 1; murder, 5; ob taining money under false pretenses. 13; smoking opium, 7; keeping opium joints, 2; rape, 1; resisting an officer, 1; robbery, 14; violating sign ordinance, 3; violating sidewalk ordinances, 23; seduction, 2; suspicious persons, 23; vagrants, 214. Of the above arrests 63 defendanis were held to answer to the charges pre ferred againstthem in the superior court; 1872 were convicted in the police court; 600 were dismissed by the jus tices, and 40 cases are still pending. During the time specified above 4 prisoners were held by the police while en route to other states; 25 insane per sons were arrested; 36 witnesses, who would otherwise have refused to prose cute, were detained; 302 sick and wounded persons were taken to the re ceiving hospital; 875 homeless wander ers were accommodated with lodging at the station; 458 loose animals were taken up and impounded, and 77 lost children were restored to their anxious parents ; 5 wayward girls were rescued from lives of shame ;15 women dipso maniacs in several cases, were treated and reformed, and 14 unruly boys were placed upon the right track. The report contains a quantity of sta tistics, showing the amounts expended upon the food furnished to the city's prisoners, and the individual cost of feeding them; the number of days worked by the chain gang, and a num ber of other matters of a similar nature. It also shows the work performed by the patrol wagon; the services rendered by the detective department; and the dis position of all moneys handled by the department. One of its most interesting features is the preface by Chief Glass, the full text of which is as follows: It is expected in each annual report, that suggestions will be made of such improvements in the arrangement and additions to the equipments of the service, as experience may show to be useful and necessary. Tlie city owns the police station on Second street, our present headquarters, and the East Side station; although much has been done during your admin istration to improve the central sta tion, in which for the present we have good offices and comfortable quarters, yet our jail is inadequate for the safe confinement of hardened criminals, and cannot be altered to comply with the requirements of a progressive modem city. In all well regulated police depart ments, the main station is fitted up with a dormitory, armory, gymnasium, bath-rooms and sanitary improvements for the benefit of the force, and in the near future Los Angeles should have such quarters. The uniform of the men is a matter of vital importance, and should be care fully looked after. I respectfully sug gest that, the material for uniforms be purchased hy the board of police com missioners, and that each officer be compelledto purchase adress and fatigue uniform each year; which plan will result in a perfect uniformity of drees and a great saving to the men. In regard to equipments, the police regulations require that each officer shall carry a club, revolver and hand cuffs. Tlie city furnishes a rosewood club 22 inches long, and a black patent leather belt; the revolver and hand cuffs are the private property of the officer, and are of the make and style of individual fancy. I suggest that the revolvers and hand-cuffs be of uniform size and make and owned by the city; and that each officer be required to de posit their cost when issued, and that the deposit be refunded when the officer retires from the force, provided they are returned in good order, less use. While the department has done most creditable and efficient work during the past year, and I have noticed a marked improvement in the discipline of the force, yet it has not arrived at the high standard I believe attainable. The members of the force have manifested a commendable desire to conform to all rules and regulations. By force of the nature of the duties to be performed, a police force is semi-military in its or ganization aud modes of discipline. The first lesson to be learned is implicit obe dience to orders. Any officer attempt ing to make a law unto himself for his particular beat, entirely independent of the instructions of his superior officers and ordinances of the city, soon becomes worse than useless upon the force. He is a drawback and a stumbling block in the way of others who are honestly striving to do their duty; or if any offi cer tries to temporize with crime, or show leniency to criminals, he not only places himself in the power of unscrup ulous men and women, and thus paves hi own way to ruin, but he compromises other and bet ter paen who are trying to •do their duty conscientiously. Po lice officers are too apt to desire to be ! • nsid v ■> 'good fellows," and thus shrink from making enemies of the vio lators of the law, in hope by that means THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 7, 1890. to secure favor, a long time in office, or promotion through political favoritism. A political policeman is an unmitigated nuisance—the worst and most danger ous type of demagogue. He reasons from the false standpoint that the influ ence of the criminal classes is sufficient to control his position and promotion. Acting on this belief, he ignores every legal requirement of his office, and be fore he is aware of the fact himself, he becomes the sworn ally and partner of those who profit by violating the laws of the land. The duties of the police are of such a character that it is abso lutely impossible for a conscientious officer to pander in the smallest degree to the wishes of the disorderly element. I respectfully call your attention to exhibit C, detective department, which shows property reported stolen and lost to the value of $20,809, and property re covered and restored to owners to the amount of $14,695. Exhibit II gives the cost of meals to prisoners on restaurant contracts, and the cost of having the cooking done in the jail by prisoners, showing an actual saving of $1010.52 from May Ist, 1890, to November 30th, 1890, by the jail cooking plan. When the meals were furnished by the restau rant there were many complaints; now there are none. I take pleasure in mentioning the work done by the detective department, since the four men detailed in that ser- | vice have been very efficient and ener getic. Their hours are long; their duties require extra skill, and I urge that their pay be increased in proportion to the work performed. The captain and the secretary are poorly paid indeed; their responsibilities and duties demand a re spectable salary. We have a rifle corps of sixteen men, who voluntarily armed themselves with the latest improved Winchester ri fles, at a cost of about $25 each. They have spent much time in drill and tar get practice, and have attained a com mendable degree of efficiency in the use of their weapons. I believe that in cer tain emergencies the possession of these weapons, and the knowledge of their use, might be a great service to the city, while they add materially to the general appearance of the force on parade or inspection. I thin* it would be a wise proceeding to furnish the department with a number of regulation bayonet rifles. It has been the aim of this department, with positive instructions from the hon orable board of police commissioners, to rigidly enforce the laws in regard to gambling. I think the city is more free from this vice than ever before. There is now no open or notorious gambling in Los Angeles. The evil of lottery gamb ling exists in a degree that is not easily eradicated. Arrests are made under difficulties, and when convictions are had the fine imposed too often has the character of a mere tax on the business, rather than a means of suppression. The police work of the city during the year has been performed alone by the regular force, f have never asked for any additional men forspecialoccasions, such as election days, legal holidays, circuses, public parades, etc., and at the present time my quota of men is short four officers. In conclusion, this de partment has done excellent and effec tive work, and reflects credit on the ad ministration ; and I, as their chief, am proud to be able to approve of their ability as a body, and I call your atten tion to my tabulated report herewith at tached. I desire to express my grati tude to your honorable bodies and to the board of police commissioners for many courtesies received during my term" of 'office. Respectfully submitted, J. M. Glass, Chief of Police. THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME. Horace's VII Ode to Minucius Plancus. Homo poets praise illustrious Rhodes, And some pmise Mitylene, Or Kpliesus, all crowned with gold, Or thy walls two-sealed Corinth, Or Thebes, the sacred seat of Pan, Or D«lphl, dear to Phoebus, Or far-famed Tempe's lovely vale, As sweet as Kden's garden. Some sing of Pallas' city fair, Or Argos rich in horses, Or proud Mycenas, home of kings, With walls as strong as mountains. But me, not Sparta's great renown, Nor thy rich plains Larissa, Please half so much, or half so well As Tibur's yellow waters, Tlie dewy meads and bending 1 rees Where Tibnn's blooming orchards O'er hangs the tlood that rolls beneath, Where Anio crowns its reaches. As soutli winds drive away the clouds, And bring us back thesunshine, So Pluneus docs the mel.ow wine And hospitable welcome, The same where camps are gay with flags Or In thr i ural pastimes, W here cares are far, and woes are few, And thy good cheer abundant. When Teucer left ancestral fields, And Saluinis behind him, lie crowned his brows with ivy leaves And thus addressed his comrades- Whatever future meets us boys, Whatever skies bend o'er us, Nil desperandum is the word, For Teucer is your leader. The god has pledged his steadfast word. And he will never fail us. New homes shall bloom beyond the seas, There Salamis shall rise anew Crowned still with living splendors. Come drown our cares with sparkling wine, We'll live as gay as gods today, Tomorrow mount the billows. We'U plow the waves to find a home, There lie fair lands to seaward. (i. W. Bl rton. A SAD AFFAIR. Serious Illness of a Most Estimable Young Man. The friends of Mr. S. B. Hunt, cashier of the State Loan and Trust company, will be pained to learn of his serious illness at Beaumont, on account of a paralytic stroke last Thursday, paralyz ing his right side. It seems that before coming to California Mr. Hunt had re peatedly suffered from attacks of inflam matory rheumatism, and as a conse quence had some valvular disease of the heart, which was the indirect cause of his sudden paralysis. Mr. Hunt has been in poor healtn since last February, and had gone to Beaumont for a change of atmosphere. He has not been able to speak since this attack, and his re covery is considered very doubtful. I'ItACTICAI. TESTS. An Astonishing Offer Home of tho He idles. The San Francisco papers of recent date con tained the following offer: — "As an evidence of the ability of Joy's Vega table Sarsaparilla to prevent sick headaches, we will give to the first twelve responsible persons who will apply at oar office a bottle free If they will agree that after their headaches have been cured that they will admit the fact over their signatures." This offer so startllngly asserted the efficiency of the remedy that many accepted, and the let ters of the parties, nearly all of whom responded, are probably the most convincing attestations that any remedy ever received. The following is a sample of those received: — I have been subject to bilious headaches and constipation for several years past; In fact, have been compelled to take a physio every other night or efse I would hare a headache and dull, mean feeling. I have taken that bottle of Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla, and have derived great benefit from it, and intend continuing It After my own experience I can heartily advise those troubled with biliousness and constipation to try it Tours, CHA3. X. ELKINOTON. 136 Locust Avenue, Ban Francisco. IN THE HIP IS WHERE DONATO WAS SHOT BY PALMA. An Apparently Cold-Blooded Attempt at Murder—The Shooter Makes His Es cape — Donato Severely Injured but Likely to Recover. Shortly after 6 o'clock yesterday morning a young man named Cyrus Donato, residing at the corner of Alpine and Pearl streets, was shot at and seri ously wounded by Luis Palma, an Italian fruit peddler. Cyrus Donato, who is about 20 years of age, is the junior member of a firm which carries on a small retail grocery business at the place designated above. At 6 o'clock yesterday morning young Donato arose and at once pro ceeded to 0,-.en the store. A few min utes after, while Cyrus was busily en gaged in arranging his wares, Luis Palma, who lives in a small cottage op posite the store, • sauntered in, and at once accosting the young grocer, proceeded to abuse him and his relatives because they dealt in fruit, thereby depriving him of his only means of livelihood. Donato noticed that the Italian was armed when he entered the store, but that his vis itor intended mischief never occurred to him. The young grocer paid very little attention to Palma's remarks for some time, but continued his work. His pa tience was finally exhausted, however, when Palma applied aninsulting epithet to the young man's relatives, and he or dered the peddler to leave the store, at the same time advancing toward the in truder. Palma waited until his victim was within a few feet of him, when he suddenly drew a large revolver and fired, and the youth fell to the ground directly in front of the counter. Palma coolly stepped forward and aim ing deliberately at his prostrate victim, fired again, the bullet fortunately miss ing its mark and lodging in the side of a barrel on the other side of the counter. He then turned and ran from the store in the direction of Temple street. The wounded man's fat her and bro ther, who were up stairs at the time of the shooting, were horror stricken on rushing down stairs to find their relative lying in a pool of blood on the floor; but they at once carried him to his room, and sent for Drs. Le Doux and Powers, both of whom responded promptly. On examination it was found that he had been shot in the left side, between the ribs and hip bone, the ball lodging in the muscles of the back. The wound is a serious one, but there is no imme diate danger attendant upon it; and with proper care the patient will in all probability suffer very little incon venience from it. At a late hour last i night young Donato was resting com paratively easily. As soon as possible after the shooting, the police were notified, and a full de scription of the murderous Italian was furnished to them ; but up to the hour of 12 o'clock last night the detectives detailed to trail him down had not suc ceeded in doing so. A GAME MAN. ' John McGarvin of Alamitos Is ; Such. John McGaryin of Alamitos was in the city yesterday, coming in for the most part to visit his little daughter, who is at school at the Sisters. John says the fishing in the bay is excellent, and that the hunting has become good in the last few days. On Friday his boys went out to get a few ducks for the use of their own house, and after being gone a few hours they returned with about four or five fat sprigs, widgeons and other varieties. The ducks have just been driven south by the late storm, and they have not yet become fishy. They are fat as little pigs after feeding on the wild celery of the upper Columbia river and the grain fields of Oregon and California. Mr. McGarvin as usual kindly remem bered the Hebald staff in several | bunches of these toothsome birds and messes of fine fish. He reports the bay full of fish and game. CATALINA ISLAND. Reports Are Favorable to a Big Devel opment. Letters were received here from Lon don during the past week, written by Colonel Smith, to the effect that every thing looks favorable for his schemes at Catalina. He is in hopes of getting back here at an early day with plenty of funds to set things in motion with a hum. The big hotel will no doubt be I one of the first undertakings. Cancer of the Nose. In 1875 a sore appeared on my nose, ana grew rapidly. As my father had cancer, and my husband died of it, I became alarm ed, and consulted my physician. His treat ment did no good, ana the sore grew larger and worse in every way,until I hsdconclud* ed that I was to die from its effects. I was persuaded to take S. S. S., and a few bottles cured me. This was after all tbe doctors and other medicines had failed. 1 have bad no return of the cancer. M HS. If. T. MA BEN. Woodbury, Hall County, Texas. Treatise on Cancer mailed free.
