He bas fondled the little girls and boyswhen tbey ran before him as be passed, along the street, and watched them until they grew up to be men and women. There Is little of tbe history of the families In his part of town but what ha is acquainted with. One afternoon 'last week a reporter of the Exqcikeb strolled out to Brighton and met Scnatxmsn, and made a round with him. chatting on the way about bia life and expe riences as a policeman.- policeman.- -"I -"I will tell you one thing to start with,1 said the officer, "if any body had told, me when I first went on the force tbat I would be a polloeman now I would bave laugbed at tbem. But there Is an old saying, yon know. that once in the line a man gets tbe fever, so to speak. In 1831 my father and mother embarked embarked on a Bailing vessel at Havre bound for Philadelphia. They came from the Kingdom of Bavaria. Tbey were poor people, and what you would call emigrants. I wash ve years old then. During the voyage my father died of sea-eickness sea-eickness sea-eickness and waa buried at sea. 1 was too younit to remember htm. but my mother h often told me about him. They wrapped bis boor no in elotb and placed it on a board and let it elide down tbe side of the ship into the water. They put no wemhta on the body. and. my mother haaoften imagined that she could again see the white forai as it psascd from view to the rear of the boat. Tbe voyage occupied fifty-three fifty-three fifty-three days. Seventeen Seventeen daya after the funeral we arrived at port. My mother waa greatly depressed over tbe loss of her principal helpmate; but ahe bore np wit n great courage, anu we came on to Cincinnati, where 1 was brought up. My trade was that of a butcher. When 1 grew up I dabbled some in politics, and in the spring of lfial 1 ran for policeman, ion know tbey elected the officers then. There were twelve wards in tbe city, and each chose six men. Besides these there was aa extra river tquad of six men. iwasoneot tne representatives oi Ward Twelve, and reported at a station which waa then at the corner of Liberty and Vine streets, where there Is a drug -store -store uow.

"Did It cost much to electioneer in those davs?" "Oh, no. I didnl spend a cent. Two years later tbe Legislature gave the Mayor the power of appointing tbe oollce and Superin tendent. Before tbat tbe Superintendent, or Captain, as we oaiiea him. was eiectea oy Council, as were also tbe Lieutenants. David T.

David Hoke succeed Ad Lukeus aa Captain under Snel baker." v "What was the matter with LukensT" -There -There was at that time an organisation Known aa me reimamner. ana tney got up a mock serenude to tne Driest Bedlni. who had come over from ItAly, and whs stopoinx at tne Cathedral. On the way to the Cathedral Captain Captain l.okena led tbe force into tbe parade at the cornor of Ninth ana nnm street, ana some sixty arret is wers made. This act created considerable of a fuss, and the result was Lukens resigned. Hoke's fate came with the Know-Nothing Know-Nothing Know-Nothing trouble, and tnelbak era third Chief was Jake Kleler. In 18aa James J Faran was elected Mayor, and a mighty fifood. Chief Magistrate be made. His Chief was Ed Hopkins. Next came Charley Thomas, wbo brought out James L. Baffin. Jim bad been City Marshal before tbat. K. M. Bishop succeeded succeeded Thomas, and bia Chief was Captain Captain Lew Wilson. Hatch followed, with Colonel Dudley in charge of the po lice, but some trouble arose about tbe Colonel, and be was ousted. Larry Haxen took bia place. Lea Harris took up it noun again, and Wilstaeb, the next Mayor. In turn anDOtnted Bob MoGrew Chief. McGrew didn't appear to give satisfaction, aud oe had to xive way to riumn. jonn torrence retained Rutnn, but his successor, S. S. Davis, appointed appointed Dave Bleaks. G. W. C. Johnston started off with Jerry Klersied. and subse quently Colonel T. E. Snelbaker was Chief. Now we are getting up to where every body la familiar with the .Mayors and cnieis. you can see how many bosses X have served under." "You were taken from your beat beroonce, were you not?" "Yes, ana only once, ana mat waatn laes. under Mayor Hums, colonel Harris started the "specials" for the down-town down-town down-town corners, and selected me ss one to stand at Fourth and Main streets.
