Blast,**- A. 0. ItcUluri Ho., Chicago.
Prluo*l.oo. For sale by Htoll aud Tuaver.
The supposition that anything good in
;bs way ol art could come from Greece,
tbe Greece of today, has not been preva
lent, and the fact tint a literary genius
exists in the end-of-the century
Atbens is as sensational in its way as
tha discovery come few years ago tbat
Russia bad a Tolstoi and a Tourgenieff.
Mr. Bikelas, in the volume alluded to,
has a series of contes that are truly re
markable. They have been put into
English from a French translation of
the Greek, so it is supposable that in
the double translation th»y have lost
some of the distinctiveness of the origi
nals, but tbey are evidently fully per
meated with the spirit of modern Gre
cian life and are in their way as 11 el
leuio as the ancient wit of Aristophanes
or the grander lines ol .Eichylns,
Tbe fact that Mr. Bikelas, by a long
residence in Paris, has mixed witb his
Attic salt name Gallia peppery pungen
cy is evident, and the result is a series
of essentially clean, but delightfully
witty, forceful and unemasculated
tales.
The first one, Tbe Plain Sister, is a
limply exquisite bit of dramatio charac
ter portrayal. Tbe Prof. Plateus, the
hero, is a bit reminiscent of Daudet's
charming Tartarin. The sketch glows
witb the warm atmosphere, the impuls
iveness ol Grecian characteristics, and
with the seven others that compose the
dainty volume, is rendered into excel
lent Knglisb.
Americans are not too well informed
as to tbe progress of literature iv Greece
in its renascent condition, and to many
it is news to learn that Mr. Bikelas has
introduced Shakespeare's dramas to the
Greek stage witb great success, Romeo
and Juliet, Othello, King Lear, Hamlet,
Macbeth, and the Merchant ol Venice
have all bsen translated by him and
produced with great success in Athens,
Constantinople, Smyrna and other ori
ental cities.
Mr. Bikslas made a bold strike at
pedantry in these translations, for he
pnt them in colloquial modern Greek.
The custom of the Athenians of today is
to consider nothing as classic or worthy
of serious attention in drama unless put
iv their ancient tongue, and the plays
were at first violently opposed on this
ground, but it took only a few perform
ances to entirely w<n over the adverss
critics.
Tbe present volume demands the at
tention of all who like to keep up to
date on literary affairs and will be
found fully as entertaining as it is novel.
UORK MEMORIES, by the Very Reverend S.
Reynolds Hole, dean ol Rochester. Mc-
Millan dk Co., New Yora.
The dean came to this oountry some
few years ago to raise money for tbe
restoration of his magnificent cathedral
al Rochester by means of lectures on
Ingland and the English. The present
volume contains a series of bis talas.and
moat entertaining they are. The rev
erend author ia evidently a theologian of
I' ;h rank, but none tbe less if he were
I be made editor of Punch it is plain
vat he would soon make that grave
Journal a thing of mirth and a joy for
ovsr. His papers fairly sparkle with wit
and kindly humor, though not to such
in extent as to blind tbe reader to the
act tbat the author m a man of the
highest scholarly attainments and a
Christian of breadth and sincerity.
To an Anglophobist the book will be
of immense benefit, for it will destroy
many popular delusions regarding un
desirable traits ascribed sometimes to
our cousins over tbe pond, and is calcu
lated to develop a spirit of affectionate
regard that should prevail for our moth
er country and our kin still there.
AMERICA'S GODFATHER, or THE FLOREN
TINE GENTLEMAN, by Virginia w. John
ston, nui hor of tbe Lliy ol tbe Arno, etc.—
Estes A Laurlat, Boston.
This is tbe story ol Amerigo Vespucci,
lorenoe has been looked at from almost
Avery point of view, but the author of
this volume who introduces us to this
"Florentine gentleman," tells us about
it in an original fashion. It ii only
fair, since '92 and '03 have given us so
much of Columbus, that '94 should
enlighten us further as to one who
has strong claim to be America's god
father in very truth. Altogether this
is an entertaining and in all ways a
valuable and attractive book. Like
Naples, noticed elsewhere in these
columns, it is a product of the highest
form of tbe book making art, and a new
evidence oi the taste and enterprise of
the publishers.
IN THB MID3T OK ALARMS, by ROBERT
BARB, Frederick A. Stokes Co., New fork,
For sale by S'.oll it Thayer.
Here is one of the most charming- lit
tle love stories o! the year, in which
there is,a minimum of namby-pambyism
and a maximum of virility, action, aud
real life. Mr. Barr has as one of his
heroes, for tbere are two, a dolightfully
pictured newspaper reporter, who while
perhaps not a type of his class as it
really is, still is well drawn, and in
many ways is what a reporter ought to
be. The old Fenian raid on Canada
forms the central incident of the tale
and the descriptions are graphic and
natural. It is a story that cheers as
well as entertains.

James Anthony Froude.
However diverse may be the judg
ment* paasod upon the work of Profes
sor Fronde, friends and foes most nnite
to recognize in him one of the giants of
his age. His impress upon the spiritual
development of the last half century has
bsen very deep, and would have been
deeper had be stood by himself, not
overshadowed by bis friend and master,
Carlyle. His originality, combined
witb his aggressive energy, was bound
to stir up contention, into whatever
field of thought be might make excurs
ions; and lew men have lived so contin
uously as he in an atmosphere of acri
monious disputation. His abandon
ment of tbe priestly pro
fession, coupled witb tbe outspoken
propositions of The Nemesis of Faith,
aroused the first bitterness against him,
and his famous defease of Henry tbe
! Eighth est all the dogs of controversy
upon bis heels. The delivery and sub
sequent publication of his American lec
tures exposed him to reprisals from vin
dictive Irishmen all over the world, and
all sorts of colonial doctrinaires felt
themselves outraged by his two books
upon the outlying provinces of tbe Eng
lish empire. Then came the Carlyle
publications, with their unnecessarily
truthful revelations; and there were
none so poor, after tbat, to do reverence
to an editor who had thus ruthlessly
(although in all unconsciousness) played
tbe iconoclast.
We think that the general effect of the
many attacks made upon ths great his
torian has been to create a distinctly
unfair and prejudiced opinion concern
ing the value of his work, and tbat his
reputation is one that will grow rather
than diminish with the lapse of years.
Let us allow to tbe full fur the exag
gerated hero-worßhip of many of bis
books, and for his constitutional inability
to see things from any other than bis
own intensely individual standpoint:
let us allow for the charges of inaccuracy
and tbe untcholarly use of material, not
only brought against him, bat amply
substantiated, by such men as Professor
Freeman and Prof. Charles Eliot Norton;
yet when all these allowances have been
made, there still remains tbe great
corpus of his work, magnificent as
literature, masterly in its power of
holding the attention, and, after all, con
sistent with itself and with the method
deliberately chosen by the author to fit
with his natural predispositions. It is
the ethical method, not the scientific,
and mast be judged by its own standard,
unless, indeed, the possibility of an eth
ical method of writing history be denied
altogether. History, he said, "is a
voice forever sounding across tbe cen
turies the laws of right and wrong.
. . . Justice and truth alone endure
and live. Injustice and falsehood may
be long lived, but doomsday comes at
last to them, in French revolutions and
other terrible ways." And he remarks
in another passage that "the most per
fect English history which exists is to be
found in tbe historical playa of Shake
speare- . . . Shakespeare's object was
to exhibit as faithfully as he could ths
exact character of the great actors in
the national drama—the circumstances
which surround them, and tbe motives,
intereal and external, by which they
were influenced, to know this is to
know all. * * No suoh directness ol
insight, no such breadth of sympathy,
has since been applied to the writing of
English history." Now Professor Free
man, for example, did not write history
upon this theory, and consequently his
stricturss altogether miss the essential
point at issue. Time, whtoh sets most
matters right, will justify Professor
Froude's method by preserving his
memory and by sparing bis books from
oblivion. Ihey will remain, wo doubt
not, as lasting monuments of our litera
ture, and minister not only to the de
light but also to the instruction (in tbe
higher senas) of generations yet unborn,

Notes.
Tbe Christinas edition of the Los Au«
geles Sunday World is issued today.
Editor Kubel has made an admirable
selection of. timely articles for this num
ber from tbe pens of well-known writers
on the newspaper and book world. The
IU. Key. Bißbop Montgomery contrib
utes an article on The Christ Child, the
Meaning of the Nativity. Tbe Christ
inas story is by Martha McCnllooh Wil
liams, called A Christmas Queen, and
J. Colnmb tells a Christmas tale en
titled .wNapone. The ladies will
delight in Kate Sanborn's relation of
An Old Maid's View of Christmas,-and
Sarah Grand's argument entitled,
Women Should Sew. Tbe paper ap
pears much improved in appearance,
the mechanioal department having been
reinforced with new aud attractive de
partment headings and new type
throughout.
The new Ibsen play is finished. I
have before now remarked on the mar
velous regularity with wnioh Ibsen
works, finishing his manuscript every
other year almost on tbe same day.
And here is the latest example. Tbe
play will be published shortly before
Christmas, and probably produced on
the London stage in tbe early spring.

author is said to have read tbe manu
script to his wife and son, but even they
do not know tbe title. Rumor crudely
remarks that it is in three acts, that the
characters are few, but that there is
some "diviltry" iv tbe plot. All of
which, despite the purple patch of the
final phrase, does not help us very much
further. 1 believe that an Flnglish
edition will appear almost simultane
ously with tbe original.—l The Oritio.
Judging from tbe third number, the
more serious contributors seem to be
dropping away from the Yellow Book
(Boston: Copeland it Day). James and
Dobson, Lsighton and Sargent, are con
spicuous only by their absence, and the
impressionists, literary and artistic, are
left to carry on tbe work alone. How
long they can do so remains to be seen.
Why is it tbat these gentlemeu can seem
to find nothing in life worth represent
ing but tbe music hall? That institu
tion is even more prominent in this
number than in either of its predeces
sors, and that is saving a grsat deal.
The North American Review for De

/HACKERAY WAS ANGRY.
The Sailors Who Intended to Play a Trie k
Changed Their Minds.
Once npou a timo the daughters of
Thaokoray saw that good man thorough
ly and heartily angry—angry to the
point of profanity. It was during thoit
Italian journey, when thoy were re
turning to tho ship in Genoa harbor aft
er a day on the shore.
"We had to be on board at a certain
time," Mrs. Ritchie says in her Mao
inll Inn paper, "so that wo engaged a
carriage and drove quickly to the quay,
where the convicts, clanking in their
chains, were still at work. A boat was
found, rowed by some sailors, who cer
tainly did not wear chains, but who
were otherwise not very unlike those
industrious convicts in appearauco. The
bargain was made, wo all five entered
tho boat, and as we were getting in wo
could bog our great ship in the twilight,
looking bigger than ever, and one rock
et and then another going off toward
tho dawning stars.
"'Thoy are signaling for us,' said
ono of our companions. 'Wo shall soon
be on board. 1
"Wo had pulled some 20 strokes from
the shore by this timo when suddenly
the boatmen left off rowing. They put
down their oars, and one of them began
talking volubly, though I oonld not un
derstand what ho said. 'What's to be
done?' Baid one of tho yonng men to my
father. They say they won't go on un
less we givo them 60 francs more,' and
he began.shaking his head and remon
strating in broken Italian. Tbe boat
men paid no attention, shrugging their
shoulders and waiting as if they were
determined never to row another stroke.
Then the steamor sent up two moro
rockets, which rose through tho twi
light, bidding us hurry, and then sud
denly my father rose up in the stern of
the boat where he was sitting, and,
standing tall and erect and in an anger
such as I had nevor seen him in before
or after in all my life, he shouted out
in loud and impatient English, 'D—
you, goon!' a simple malediction which
carried more force than all the Italian
polysyllables and expostulations of our
companions. To our surprise and groat
relief, tho men seomed frightened; they
took to their oars again and began to
row, grabbling a* l ** muttering. When
we got i hoard the ship, they told ns
it was a well known trick the Genooso
boatmen were in the habit of playing
upon travolers and that they would have
sent a boat for us if we had delayed any
longer."
A Bad Beginning.
Hero is a story told by n city ourato..
to whom tho experience happened on
tho occasion of his first wedding. Tho
rector had told him to bo careful to fill
up the register with the correct ages of
the bride and bridegroom. The cere
mony having been gone through, tho
happy couple, who wero of {nature age,
adjourned to the vestry to sign tho reg
ister.
The bridegroom, when asked his age,
gavo it at onco as 00, but the bride,
with the modesty natural to tho sex,
merely said she was of full age, while
when remonstrated with sho pertly told
the curate that it was not tho first time
she had gone through the ceremony, and
she moant to insist upon her rights.
Finally, as tho brido remained ob
dnrato, tho bridegroom, thinking to put
matters straight, told tho curate tho nge.
Far from serving as tho oil on tho wa
ters, this only made matters worse, foi
the bride flew into a passion anil insist
ed upon the bridegroom tolling her how
ho knew hor age.
"I looked at your family Bible, my
dear," was the quiet rejoinder.
"And what right had you, pray, to
take suoh a liborty beforo we woro mar
ried?" And tho two, who had come to
churoh an affectionate ns a pair of turtle
dovos, loft in a pet. The curato who
was responsible is still wondering what
was tho final upshot of this unfortunate
incident.—Loudon Tit-Bits.
Not So Easily Deceived.
It is laughable—and sometimes sad,
too—to sco tho devices adopted by the
people who tako a pitcher or a can to
the saloon for beer.
A man has no way to hido it, and ho
is generally the most sensitive on tho
subject. Sometimes lie will put it in a
paper. Often he will tako out a largo
bottle and stuff it in his pocket, and I
saw ono man hide a pitcher with his
broad brimmed hat and saunter away
from a saloon barebeadod.
Womon use thoir aprons as cos/ors,
though I novor observed ono yet who
didn't make her errand all the more
conspicuous by this moans.
One servant girl plaeod a can of beer
at tho foot of a baby's porambulator and
covered it with a shawl, and I expected
the amber fluid to scatter in all direc
tions.
I knew of one woman who ugod to
send out a tin can marked "milk"—
often tho stage fashion of labeling poi
sons, liquors, etc.—but I don't think it
ever deceived any one. —Now York Re

POLICE DEPARTMENT'S WORK.
Recommendations anil Sugges
tions by Chief Glass.
He Again Expose** the Foal Condi
tion of the city Jail.
lbs Laws on Gambling Hart, He Says,
Bean Kafuroed — A Kevlaw of
tha Work Ilnrlne tha
Last Year.
Tbe record of tbe polico department
and ita work during tbe fiscal year end
ing November 30th ia one of which the
chief may feel proud. Never before in
the history of Los Angeles has the de
partment been so effective, and this, too,
in tbe face of tbe fact that, owing to a
rapid increase of population, the work
has been nearly doubled over tbat ol
any previous year.
Chief Glass will send bis annual report
of the department to the city council
at its session today. In that report he
touches upon some points that are of
vital importance, not only to the tax
payers, but to the city in general. The
most important, psrhsps, is bis timely
reference and recommendations regard
ing the present police hoadquarters.
whose vileness and foul condition
were fully exposed by the HfBAT.u a
year ago. Chief Glass has in his annual
reports for at least three or four years
called attention to the filthy condition
of the jail, in which no human being
should be confined. If some one would en
force the law in the case, the city would
be compelled to discontinue the use of
the dungeon, and then it is hoped a jail,
with all modern improvements, will be
constructed. The chief Bays :
"In former reports I have pointed out
'he many irremediable defects of the
building, end the wrong of crowding
prisoners of both sexes, and all ageß,
within tbe narrow limits of the old jail's
sewage-contaminated cells. Wo must
have more room for prisoners, and il
we are to comply with the laws of tbe
state, must have room to provide separ
ate apartments for famalee, and for juv
enile offenders, and to do our work prop
erly must have a larger and more con
venient building for a central station.
Tbe building should contain apartments
for the matron, so tbat she could always
be present to search and properly care
for female prisoners, and work them after
conviction, so tbat they may be made
to at least pay for thsir kseping. The
building should also contain an armory
and drill hall, a gymnasium and baths,
and a large dormitory for the accommo
dation of a reserve force, which we are
liable to need at any time. There
should also be a stable sufficiently large
to accommodate our patrol horeea and
tbe horses of tbe mounted officers. All
well regulated police departments of the
cities of the eastern states are provided
for in this way, and why should we not
be bb well cared for? I therefore again
most earnestly reoommend your honor
able body to sell the old building and
site and purchase a suitable piece of
ground, and erect thereon a modern
police building and jail. I think it
economy to do this at once, as I am sat
isfied tbat the many repairs that wo
are compelled to make in the old build
ing, because ot faulty sewerage, defect
ive plumbing, etc, annually.cost more
than the interest on sufficient money to
build a suitable building. We olten
have 120, or more, prisoners in the city
jail at night, and we have not room to
properly care for more than one-third of
that number, and I am afraid that we
may sometime have very serious re
sults from crowding into cells three or
four times tbe number of prisoners that
should be placed in them.
"I also again recommend that a
branch station be established in the
southwest portion of the city, either at
the corner of Main and Washington, or
Washington and Figueroa streets,an that
portion of the city is rapidly increasing
in population and wealth, and I think
tbat the city should purchase the
ground required and erect the ceeet
ssry buildings, as it is impossible to
lent one suitable for tho station,
which should include one or more
celts, in which to detain prisoners un
til tbsy could be removed to tbe central
station."
Tbe following comprises the rest of
the report:
"The Must Bide station has been a
great benefit to us, and the officers
stationed in Last Los Angeles have
done excellent work in handling
tramps, arresting them or compelling
them to move on. I wish to especially
commend Officer W. H. McKeag, who
has had charge of ths Easi Side station,
for his good work, and recommend that
he be promoted to the rank of sergeant,
and given the salary of said rank. He
gives long hours to the service and is
always faithful and efficient, and cer
tainly merits the promotion and raise of
salary.
"Tbe roster shows that the present
number of the force—of regular officers,
including the matron —is 72, and that
there are 10 special officers. Du.ing the
year just closed three officers have re
signed, six have been dismissed and one
has died, the latter, Detective Allred O.
Benson, whose death occurred on the
11th day of Augußt. lam glad of this
opportunity to say of the deceased de
tective tbat he was one of tbe moat
noble and concientious of men, very
vigilant and possessed of uncommon
qualifications for the work of a detect
ive, and the Los Angeles police depart
ment has been truly honored by having
him as a member.
"In the past yoar tho increase of sal
aries recommended iv formsr reports
hsß been kindly granted by your hon
orable body, for which I thank you, and
lam also thankful for the beginning of
the police relief fund, as started by the
ordinance recently passed, and I hope
that all of the provisions of the statute
of March 4th, 1880, in regard to tins
matter, will be put into effect.
"During the past yaar we have
passed through a remarkable railroad
strike, that threatened at times to he
very serious, but fortunately it paeßed
away without any lobs of life, or serious
loss "of property, and with the exception
of the turning over ol a ireiaht car, and
the derailment of a few others, no dam
age was done. The most notable police
event of the strike was the arrest by
Mounted Officer G. W. Woodward of
Henry Patterson, one of the striking
engineers, who is accused of shooting at,
and attempting to kill. Engineer Mar
tin, who was bringing in his train from
Santa Barbara. In this case Officer
Woodward showed good judgment, and
lino courage, and has displayed great
zsal in securing evidenoe, and be is en
titled to great credit for hie work. The
whole police foice did good work
throughout tbe strike, tbe officers doing
double duty willingly and faithfully. I
again reoommend that the city pur
aaaae Winchester riules for each mem
ber of the force, so that in dealing witb
a bad riot ws would be more effectively
equipped.
"The officers of tbe department have
been brought out for inspection and
drill once each month, and* this neces
sary work will bo continued as long as I
have charge of the department, but to
properly drill the men we should have
some place other than the public streets.
"I again recommend that an ordi
nance be passed prohibiting the use of
fireworks on our streets on all occasions,
especially on tbe Fourth of July and
other holidays, without a written per
mit from the mayor stating when and
where tbe fireworks shall lie used.
"Though I do not wish to increase the
work of the police department, I believe
that the chain gang should bs under
the control of the chief of police, and be
lieve that if the control of the gang was
so placed more and better work could be
secured from the prisoners, and tbe per
centage of escapee, which is now ridicul
ously large, could bo much decreased.
In connection with this matter I recom
mend the building ol temporary bar
racks in Elysian park, where prisoners
could be held under a proper guard of
officers and worked on the roads of the
park. In this way we could take care of
an army of tramps, if they saw fit to
corns to our city, and the work would be
for the benefit of all citizons
"Exactly 4022 arrests for crimes com
mitted in our county were made by the
department, and we ssoured ."085 con
victions, and have many cases psnding.
In addition to this the department has
made 30 arrests of fugitives from other
counties of this state, or other states.
Of this number eight have been taken
to other states on requisitions, and of
ficers of our department have* also re
turned three fugitives from other states
to stand their trials for crimes com
mitted here. The total arrests for the
year ISOil were 3077, so that the narked
increase of the work of the department
is well shown by this exhibit. In addi
tion to the arrestß for crime the officers
have done great deal ol work in bring
ing parties to the receiving hospital for
medical treatment, restoring lost child
ren to their parents, apprehsnding in
sane persons, caring for loose horses,
etc., and 1118 lodger? have been accom
modated at the city jail in the year.
"In tbe year lost and stolen property
of tbe value of $29,078 was reported to
the" department, and we recovered
property of the value of $18,178.90,
which 1 think is a very good showing.
"The large number of 1447 jurors were
summoned, 3048 witnesses subpuinaed,
3870 letters and telegrams received and
answered,
"The jail department, shows that
48.530 meals were furnished prisoners
during tbe year; tbat the chain gang
performed 8900 days' work; tbat 1813
treatments were givsn patients in the
receiving hospital by the police surgeon,
and many other matters of interest.
"Reports of the sergeants show the
nuisances abated by the officers acting
as sanitary inspectors, the number of
fire alarms turned in, etc,
"The report of tbe patrol drivers
shows that 2143 calls were answered in
the year, 8076 miles traveled, etc.
"In regard to meals furnished, the
reports show that by having the cook
ing done by tbe prisoners the cost has
been $3438.19 less than it would have
cost to tiave had the meals furnished by
a restaurant, as was the practice before
I took charge of the department.
"There were finee and forfeited bails
collected iv the police courts amounting
to $0814.
"The total expense of. the police de
partment in the fiscal year was $78,
--813 67.
"Io the pact year tbe laws in regard
to gambling have been strictly enforced
and there has been no open or notorious
playing of the games prohibited by the
laws of tbo state, and but few attempts
have been made to play on the sly,
which attempts have resulted in prompt
arrest?. Unfortunately for the city
many gamblers are able to exist in our
midst by the profits derived from draw
poker and other games which tbe laws
do not prohibit, and - which are pluved
much too extensivsly in tho so-called
club rooms back of cigar stores and sa
loouß. Legislation that would enable
the police to break up these places is
much desired. My opinion in regard to
gamblers has not chanizcd. I think each
aud every one of them a detriment to
the city. In the pasi year we have made
94 arreßts for gambling and have secured
(il) convictions, and have some cases
pending, Tbe fines have been large,
aud the police have at the time of euch
arrest tuken possession of all tables,
boxes, tools, etc., used in the games. In
the year (IS arrests have been made for
lottery ticket selling, 48 convictions
secured, aud some cbbss are pending.
Tho selling of lottery tickets by Chinese
and the playing of fan-tan in Chinatown
has been on a smaller sea o than over
before
"The whole department has done
good and effective work througnout the
year. We have had, aud will continue
to have, a certain amount of crime, and
most of it was committed by foreign
talent, as in thio year just passed, the
same aa in lormer years.many criminals
have fo. lowed our good visitors from
other states. But most of the visiting
crooks iilive been caught, and are now
in the penitential ioa or on their way
there.
•'I again respectfully call the atten
tion ol your honorable body to the iaot
that the police work of this city has
been done by the regular force, and that
no extra money ha? neon expended for
special officers on election days, legal
holidays or any other occasion, and the
regular officers huvs frequently done
double duty.
' Our work has beou hard hut has
beeu made more pleasant because we
all feei that each year the good aud law
abiding citizens of our community more
thoroughly appreciate the work of the
department. It will.be my aim to con
tinually improve and increase ttia effect
iveness of the force so long as 1 remaiu
at the head of tho department."
In conclusion, on behalf of the officers
of the department, Chief Ulass says :
' I return to the good citizens of this
community most hearty thanks. To all
of the officers 1 am duly grateful for
their uniform kitiduesß and obedience
to orders, and take tliin opportunity to
publicly acknowledge their faitnful ser
vice to me and the city. I also wish to
exprutis my thanks fo his honor, tbe
mayor, and to the other members of the
police commission, and to you,'gentle
men of tho city council, for favors and
courtesiesextendod to us."
