Plscusslng the needs of the police at ths
regular meeting of the board Tuesday
night, the legislature came In for sharp
criticism for having Increased ths psy of
tha police to the aggregate amount of 127,-
000, while only appropriating $10,000 of that
In order to remedy the matter without
decreasing the membership of the force
number of expedients wera proposed.
Commissioner William Hunter proposed
that a number of tha older policemen who
are receiving t$o a month should be re
tired on a pension in favor of men who
would only draw 60 a month. In this
manner he thought a saving would re
sult and the money saved ba devoted to
tha payment of men enough to maintain
tha three-shift system.
Mayor Dahlman and Chief of Police Don
ahue raised tha point that while a man
eeuld by law retire after having at
tained tha age of fifty and having served
twenty years on tha force. It did not ap
pear that tha man could ba arbitrarily re
tired by the board.
Tba matter was referred to the attorney
ef tha board as to tha meaning of tbs
nr wirfct Bait.
It waa suggested the shifts be aa ar
ranged that the night detail might have an
Increase of men. Chief Donahue explained
that as It stands the day shift baa been
cut down to tha lowest possible figure.
He aald there are about alghteen'mea on
tha first or day shift and that tha beats
at beat could not ba mora than covered.
If tha board would provide two motor-
cyclea tha chief said lour men could be
bad to cover a large amount of territory
which new takes many patrolmen. A
auggeatlon that the railroads psy for men
detailed at the stations, wss not ap
proved by the mayor, who said that ths
city should afford protection to Incoming
and outgoing travelers. The mayor aald in
conclusion that the pieeent three-shift sjs
lm should ba maintained as long as ths
tucds held out. after which, the force
would of neceeslty have to be curtailed.
In the opinion of Chief Donahue, the
present demand for police protection was
dua to a fear engendered by the Cohn
murder. The chief was of ths opinion thst
tha murder Itself wss an accident which
might occur with twice the number of po
lice. He said, bowsver, that twice the
present number of patrolmen would be
needed properly to police the city. The
board expreesed the hope that tba next
legislsture would assist them to better
conditions In ths department
Acting upon the report that Andrew Net
son, a saloon keeper, had been convicted
ef breaking the l-o' clock law, the board
ordered his license revoked and his place
of business closed. ,
Patrolman Michael Corrlgai was found
guilty of Intoxication while en duty and
dismissed, from tha force. Michael Brick,
truckman of No, 12, was fined IS for being
drunk while on duty.
