New Chief Shakes Up Police Department

Feb. 24, 1910, Cover 

Feb. 24, 1910: This was one of those days when it was impossible to pick  one story over the others. New Police Chief Alexander Galloway orders a cleanup of the notoriously filthy City Jail … officials report a new phenomenon – an organized gang stealing cars and stripping them for parts. Until now, about three cars a week were stolen in Los Angeles for joyriding, The Times says … And finally, council members are told that they can only get free rides on the streetcars when they are on city business … 

And a woman says she was cheated on the purchase of King Breath Perfume Machines.
