In a telegram from San Francis co he says: "Not only is the present force inadequate to fully guard the in terests of the city, but they have been necessarily overworked in t\ ■ past and overtaxed today.

Gree : ly said: “E-tiif’ates from v a r i o u s - ■■reus place the destitute at be :: 2«»,and a piarter of a million, which leaves me but one Id Dr to every hundred desti tuto people, and the additional force would only give two to the hundred.
