The New York Stm this week had an intcrestingf article about Jacob Hays, the only Jewish chief of police New York ever had. Hays was police chief of the metropolis around the 1820's. He had an international reputation as a crime de¬ tector. Funny thing about- Hays was that he refused to go armed.

A cousin of Chief of Police Hays, Reuben Etting, had a rather strange ex¬ perience with the British troops. He was captured at Charlestown, Mass., by the British, - "Aha," they said, as they looked at him, "a Jew!" They decided to amuse themselves with a little interesting torture. He was given only pork to eat. Etting was a pious Jew—and he re¬ fused to eat the pork but he managed to subsist in a semi-starved fa.shipn from the leavings given to him by the other prisoners. . However, his bodily resistance suffered, and shortly after his release, he died from tuberculosis. The Solis-Coheas of Philadelphia arc descendants of the Hays family.
