In 1870 she went with her husband to

years. After returning to America ahe
returned to the stage, and was active in

are the "dope fiend," the amateur female
shoplifter, the Irishman, Slippery Jake,
Kliiult, the man unjustly accused,

There has been considerable discussion
whether the city will be able to get bid

the city clerk and the mayor have taken
It upon themselves personally to Inter

over, the responses received have been
encouraging to say the least.
Yesterday bond buyers from representa

It Is hoped that at tonight's meeting
there will bo enough competition to war

It Is, however, understood that there
Is a determined effort to make the city
pay 6 per cent on the bonds Instead of
the figure quoted. This cannot be done
unless the ordinance calling for the sale
of bonds at i per cent Is made to read
5 per cent.
Bald Mayor Tralnor yesterday: "Those
bonds will be sold at i per cent on they
will not be sold at all. I mean to take

Chief of Police John BrlKKs yesterday
charged Police Commissioner Joseph
Pivonka with overstepping the limits of
his authority In usurping the duties of
the chief of police.
Chief Briggs says that in effect the
system being pursued by Commissioner
Pivonka will demoralize the discipline of
the police department. The chief in
stanced several cases where officers were
given directions by the commissioner in
the face of counter commands from the
chief and captains.
In one case where the chief for the kotoI
of the service refused to accord a ten
days' leave to an officer the request was
repeated during the chiefs absence to
two of the captains, who flatly refused
to accord the permission. In this In
stance the' chief avera Commissioner
Pivonka told the officer In question to
take the ten days' leave.
Chief Briggs mentioned a case where
an officer was relieved of his club and
star by the police commissioner without
having any recourse to the chief.
"This state of affairs cannot go on
without detriment to the police depart
ment," Bald the chief as he concluded his
interview. " .

Mayor Trainpr will act .as Santa Claus
to the poor of the city this afternoon
when ha gives away the Christmas good
things collected from the packers and
some of the merchants.
Early this morning wagons will be sent
to the merchants who have promised gifts
for the poor and it Is expected that a
large amount of goods' and eatables will
have been collected before noon.
Mayor Tralnor has carried out hla in
tention of helping some of the deserving
poor of the city unaided save for the
merchants and packers who responded
to his appeal. Not all of those who were
approached in the good cause came tor-
ward with the generosity that might have
been expected from the prosperous at
this season of the year. One grocer when
asked to contribute in money or goods
declared that he had not seen any of the
city's trade on his order books.
The donations collected consist of
meats and chickens from the packera,
clothes, groceries, toys, fruits, vegetable
and everything that goes to make up a
happy Christmas for the poor.
The distribution will be made thla
afternoon at the city hall.
