"Ananias In his nalmi'"t days never wrote half as nianv falsehoods and rnirepresi nta lintis as appeared In the Italian press and in the official statements issued I'.v 'he Italian government." telegraphs the correspondent of the Reuters Telegraph company, limit ed, who has arrived at Malta. From Malta he Has able to rend an urn-encored message which con tains a pessimistic description of the condition of the Italian army around what he terms the besieged city of Tripoli. To sum up the retults of the cam paign: The Italians hold, with, ne-irlv twice us many men, half the ground that they held three weeks ago. They have lost lti killed and wounded, not ec tinting th" sii'k. over 10.H00 men. Many Arabs have been killed and various numbers were shot In cold Mood. Now 25.000 soldiers find themselves with their backs to the sea, cramped and confined with an active enemy within a. few yards of them, and with the cholera raglnR union? them. Despite official efforts to conceal the truth, thero have been many eass among the troops and the civil pi-potation Is suffering so much that whole streets in Tripoli have been closed by armed sentries. The correspondent says of the en gag ment of October 26: "Far from being a decisive vic tory, the Hunt nearly ended in dis aster and would have had the enemy had a few thousand men at any point Instead of a few hundred. Th! Italian line was broken In two !ices by less than two hundred Arabs who bad ri al lied the cover of the resi dential oasis, thus placing themselves between tl'e town and the line of de fense. The Fituation was saved only bv a charge of one hundred dismount ed cavalry, who lost heavily, 1 tit tnan SRed to kill a majority of the storm ing party." The correspondent describes the spirit of the invading army lis- tie moralising. The men expected -short and sharp campaign. Instead, they sro lying in the trenches with muni storms blowing over or rains snaking them, with continual nlghl alarms. They nre il if-justei! Willi the war and linte the country.

Is because the county government, of whbh Mr. Pomero is the exei titive oft leer, has not only put an effective crimp in lliibbcllivm. but it has lso helpt-d to etpose the gross in competence of the city marshal and the disgraceful abuses which, have obtain etl frxuii time to time in the police department under his direction. The following Is a supplementary report of the lleinalillo rounty gland jury at the September. 1 !',' term: Territory of New Mexico, County of llernnlillo, in the District Court of lite Second Judicial District. In the matter of the report and recommendation of the grand jury sit ting at the September term, llted, of the above court relative to the police de partment of the city t' Allttitpieluue. To the Honorable District Court of the Second Judicial District: Complaints have been made to the grand Jurv at this term relative to at leged abuses existing in the police administration id' the city of Albuqueitpie, anil a special report regarding such alleged abuses is hereby submitted. .The jury has examined a considerable number of witnesses to ascertain the methods pursued in the polite administration In the city of Albu.ueftpie quires that all cases tried before the police Judge shall be docketed In the name of the city against the defendant, and that the Judge shall enter upon his docket In a plain. Intelligible manner, a minute of each step taken In each case and of the particular costs assessed In the same. We find that polio of tlccr have been assessing fines and costs in bulk without any reference to the item entering therein, the uniform charge belli $5 in each case, and which Is excessive. It Is attempted to explain this charge iu cases where the costs do not reach the sum of IT. that there nre other cases in which the costs go above l'. and that the $S charge is a fair average. Tills Is Rro lnjn-4kf not ml to tbo allcgiil offender. Inn Is unlawful as well. Section 3l, of the ord inances, requires judgment to be entered in each case ami every case of Ruilty or not guilty of the offense charted, and the disposition of the case made, whether the detenibtnt be discharged, fined or imprisoned. This ordinance has not been unserved, and in cases in which a defendant has been discharged, there Is no record whatever of such action. This is unfair to a defendant as if hebl guiltless of mi alleged olfense the record should so state, and as Ihe ordinance requires it. the Mime should be followed strictly. The cash bond rslnii hits been the source of vcr great injustice. The release of defendants upon a cash bond Is undoubtedly Justifiable for misdemeanors, but when the bond is forfeited by non it ppea ranee of the defendant, as is Very frequently the case, the entire sum of the cash bond should be turned into the rity treas ury, and If the of fliers claim itn portion thereof as costs, such claims should be presented to the board of aldermen for audit by that body. We find that no relative to the arrest of alleged offenders, the disposition of police cases and stem Is followed with regularity in the police administration, and we would of fines ami costs collected in such cases. The jury has ascertained that the recommend that the station card system be established In which each arrest ordinances of the city In isdicr- department are violated Is.ih In letter and In 1r consecutively numbered and the name of the alleged offender, the orfenso s Irlt. Section 316, of city or dinances, requires that the city marshal ami po- which he Is charged, the officer making the arrest, the time and place of lie. men are authorised to arrest any person violating In their presence or "iTest. the address of the offender, his ago, height, weight and occupation, the w hom they have reasonable cause to believe has violated any law of the I'nit- I't opcrty found on his person should all be set out In regular order upon a ed States or of the territory or any ordinance of the city, and upon arrest be- Mnk especially prep.-. red. and th- same to be preserved its a part of the rec ing made the officer makin - the arrest shall, as soon its practicable, make a orJ ,f Ihe department. The officer to add any special remark which may complaint before a proper judicial officer for the issuance of a warrant or the have come within his observation during the apprehension and conveylnn to apprehension or detention of the person arrested. The Jury finds that this the Jail of such offender. There rhoultl also be an entry made of the sentence ordinance is repeatedly violated. In examining: Hie reort of the city impon-,1 by the court, when the same will expire, when the offender is re iiiiiishat ami eomimrtng: the sninc with the docket or I lie mlloc Judge of the h used and by whom released, and If out, pursuant to ordinance No. 320, for city or AlbiKiiiertiue, it has been foil ml that In a very write number of arrests w"rl lllul labor. In accordance with the terms t,r the Judgment imposing sentence of iersons, and In which cases rinex ami -o-t Mine Ik-cii Imposed, there Is no in whose custody such offender may be paroled. The course suggested would ob rcturd whatever, of the case bin lug tiecn hoard by the Hdlce Judge. The vlat In a gn at degree some td the abuses w hich have been t ailed to our atten dockct of the police judge contains no reference whatever to such cases. That t'" '""'I ' believe that measures should be taken at once to eliminate the ex official has no recollection of such cases having been heard by him, und yet. Ming ablin s in the poll, e .ulniinlstratlorr of the t Ity or Albuquerque. The city ot the report of the city marshal to the board of aldermen shows that fines and Albnqiier doer, not need any instructions from this Jury as to the propriety costs have been Imposed against the alleged offender ami have been collected, of any ordinance It may have enacted, but we believe that Section 324 of the TI ere can lie no tltuiht that some of Hie police officer have Ih-cii imposing and tdty ordinance, could be Improved by requiring all fines and costs to be paid e Meeting lines and costs of the alleged offender without nivlnit Mich offender over to the city treasurer, und that any t lulms agulnsl said fines and costs by a trial In court anil without making any record whatever, by complaint, war- any officer should be audited by the board of aldermen. This would afford an rant, commitment or other proceeding relative to such case. As we have inspection of each claim for costs, ami no Illegal costs would be thereby paid said, these cases arc numerous ami exhibit an abuse of police authority start- to any officer. We are satisfied that the city loses hundreds of dollar'i each lir.; In its Injustice. A police officer has only ministerial functions, and the year bv the uniform assessment of costs at the rale of rive dollars for each proor before this body is abundant that sm h officer has' been exercising case, and it must not be overlooked that this collection of five dollars prevail judicial functions In the imposition and collection of fines and costs. And this, in cases which have never been heard by the city Judge, where, no warrant Is too, has been dono xyithout the formality of giving the offender a trial. The issued and no trial whatever is had. The exaction of fines and costs being made instances in which "tfdf has occurred can be readily ascertained by a coinpuH- by a police officer, practices of the kind above recited, must bo checked kt son of the docket of the police Judge with the monthly reports of the city once. A continuance or such rooiiliire Is a rerNich lo the administration of marshal. Section 31", of the city ordinances, requires that the police Judge the law and we urgently request the offlcluls in charge of the affairs of the shall, before proceeding to try any person for the violation of any ordinance city of Albuqueniue to continue the Investigation upon which this body enter of the city, to cause complaint to be made and warrants to be issued to arrest ed, alter repeated suggestions that practices or the kind hereinabove recited, the alleged offender, and return to be made In such warrant. And the evl- hud been Ruing on for a considerable period of time, and it should be the de donee is abundant that without the Intervention of the city Judge In this be- she of all good cltixcna to demand a change In the past and present methods hall'' police officers, without judicial functions have been engaged in assessing of police administration.
