^ OmCK or THB POLICK COMMISSIOXKK, 29 Pexbkktoh Sqttaue, 

y Boston-, Dec. 1. 1906. 

V To His Excellency Ccktis Guild, Jr., Governor. 

: j Yocit Excellency : — As Police Commissioner for the 

city of Boston, I have the honor to present, in compliance with 
the provisions of chapter 291 of the Acts of 1906, a report 
of the work of the police department for the year ended Nov. 
30, 190G. 

Because of the changes made by chapter 291, a symmetri- 
cal report for the year is not possible. Under the provisions 
of that chapter, the authority of the former Board of Police 
ended June 1, in so far as it had controlled licenses for the 
sale of intoxicating liquors and for the keeping or the use 
of intelligence offices, bowling alleys, picnic groves, skating 
.1 rinks and billiard tables. On the first Monday in Jane, the 
fourth day of the month, the Board ceased to control the 
/ police department, which was then taken over by the present 
I commissioner. 

/ Later, under authority of chapter 291 , and on his appoint- 

f ment by the mayor of Boston, John )I. Minton, £^., the 

I cliairman of the Board of Election Commissioners, together 

( with the Police Commissioner, became the Listing Board, 

f charged with the duty of listing the male residents of Boston 

twenty or more years of age. But while in office, the former 

Board of Police had for six months attended to the license 

matters afterwards entrusted to the Licensing Board, and 

had canicd on for two months the work of listing. This 

report will therefore cover for the entire twelve months the 

work of the police department as such, and the operations 

connected with the listing of male residents ; but, as the 

authority vested in the Licensing Board is now wholly 



\ 



r, POLICE C0:MMISSI0NEH. [Jan. 

removed from the police department, and as the records arc 
no longer in its possession, it has been agreed between the 
Licensing Board and the Police Commissioner that the Board 
shall report fully for the whole year upon the subjects now 
under its control. Necessary exceptions will be the inclu- 
i sion in this report of certain receipts and expenses, and the 

J records of work done by the police department in aiding the 

Licensing Board. 

Relations with the Licexsi.no Boaud. 

Bv careful and hannonious action on tho part of the 
Licensing Board and the Police Connnissioner, the division 
of the business was made without interruption to it-s prog- 
ress. The Licensing Board was accommodated with offices 
I in the police headquarters building, as provided by law. 

All the clerks of the Licensing Board were taken from 
among the clerks already employed by the police depart- 
ment, and those remaining were found to be sufficient for 
police purposes ; so that the whole transaction, involving, 
as it did, the setting up of a new department, was carried 
through without the discharge or the employment of even 
one clerk. 

The relations of the Licensing Board and the Police Com- 
missioner are so close that neither law nor official courtesy, 
nor both together, could alone guarantee the thorough per- 
fonnance of their joint duties. They refjuire, in addition, 
singleness of purpose in canying out the laws, and cordial- 
it)' in personal relations, both of which, I am happj' to be 
able to say, have always existed. Tliough the police de- 
partment neither issues nor revokeii the licenses placed by 
law under the control of the Licensing Board, yet the police 
are necessarily, in all matters of detail, the eyes and the 
ears, the hands and the feet of the Board. At the time of 
the sejMirntion, tho police were warned by the commissioner 
that their vigilance in discovering and reporting violations 
of laws affecting subjectij transferred to the control of the 
Licensing Board was to be even greater than before ; and I 
feel sure that they have done their full duty.

I Secretary to the Cosoiissiokeb. 

The act under which the oflBce of Police Commissioner I 

> was established made it compulsory upon him to appoint a / > 

secretary, at an annual salary of $3,000, for a term of five f ] 

years. The act, on the other hand, left it optional with him 
to expend for legal services in any one year a sum not ex- 
ceeding $3,500. It seemed to the commissioner that by 
securing a lawyer for secretary he might reserve the special 
allowance for legal emergencies. He therefore appointed 
Leo A. Rogers, Esq., who for six months has performed to 
the commissioner's perfect satisfaction all the duties of sec- 
retary, and in addition has taken care of a large volume of 
legal matters. It has not been necessary to draw upon the 
si>ecial allowance, but, as important questions calling for the 

I services of senior counsel may arise at any time, it is a wise 

\ provision of the law. 
f 

/ 1 ArrrrcuE of the Police Force. 

I The first efforts of the Police Conunissioner were directed 

'■ to the task of convincing the members of the admirable 
! / police force over which he took control that they were to 
/. be absolutely free firom outside interference ; that the com- 
I' missioner himself in coming into the department had no 
entanglements and no obligations, — that his duty Avas to 
the law alone; and that they, in turn, were to look only to 
their department superiors for rewards and punishments. 
The conunissioner now has faith to believe that the members 
of the force are convinced that only their own conduct will 
count for or against them ; that they may do and must do 
their foil duty fearlessly ; and that there are no hidden am- 
bushes, from which, for doing that duty, they can be at- 
tacked and injured. In six months of watchfulness the 
commissioner has discovered no evidence of that corruption 
which is the curse of the police departments of some other .i 

large cities. Doubtless there may be some bad spots in a I 

force of more than twelve hundred men, exposed to many 
temptations ; but superior officers, in whom I have full con- 
fidence, have been unable to find them, and no person bring-

\nc accusations to the commissioner has ever l^een able to 
produce a -hred of evidence. Tiie v.atch will continue, and 
the punUhmcnt of the guilty, if any, will be as severe as 
the kw» of the State, as well as the rules of the department, 
will sanction. 

The Xew Juvenile Law?. 

The juvenile laws, so called, took effect September 1. 
At that time the Police Commissioner issued to the mem- 
bers of the force a printed explanation of the provisions of 
the acts. He also urged them to a'" ;ept and to follow in 
good faiib the new and unfamiliar methods of dealing with 
children which the acts cst-tblished. This they have done, 
and special reports received frcqucntl}' from commanders of 
divi.-ions show that no serious difficulty has been met with 
in putting ihe new procedure into practice. 

Tlio commissioner cannot yet express an opinion as to 
the actual effects of the laws upon the children themselves ; 
but his siDcere hope is that they may check the tide of 
juvenile disregard for law and order which he considers the 
most difficult and important problem now confronting the 
jjolice of Boston. 

Special reports for the three months ending November 30, 
obtained by the commissioner from the commanders of 
divisions, show that 725 children under seventeen years of 
age were dealt with by the police. These include the delin- 
rjuent, the wayward and the neglected, as defined in the 
acts. The causes which brought these children into the 
bands of the police were as follows : —

L'p to within a year, membcre of the police force who 
were ordered to other parts of the country or to foreign 
countries, for the purpose of invcs*'gating crime or of re- 
turning with criminals, drew nione\ from the county tiea.s- 
urcr for tlieir expenses, on an order from the di.<trict 
attorney, and settled the Jicccunts on their return. The 
present district attorney found that there was no law to 
warrant this procedure, and refused to sanction it. Such 
advances are now made by the Police Commissioner from 
his personal means, and he h:is out, in this informal wa}', at 
the present time an aggregate of $1,550. If this nmy 
fairly be considered one of his oflicial obligations, he has 
no decided objection to fulfilling it; but it eeoms to him to 
be more in keeping with coirect business methods and with 
the dignity of the county of Suffolk tliat a proper sum 
should be placed in his hands by law, to be used for this 
purpo:^e and accounted for by him from time to time. 

ReGISTU.VTION FOK PunCIIASE OF Ll<iLOU.«. 

It is provided in Revi.scd I.aws, chapter 11, .section (i, 
that .-^ales of into.xicating liciuofs on election days in places 
authorized to make such sales .shall be restricted to persons 
•* duly registered." I beg to say that the practical result of 
this provision is apparently not Mich as the law intended. 
Persons called ujwn to register at hotels in order to obtain 
intoxic-ating liquors treat the matter as a joke, registering 
names other than their own, and furnishing no information 
which could by any possil)ility be put to a useful purpose. 
I recommend that the law be so changed that the restric- 
tions on sales of into.xicating liquors on election days shall 
be the same as those imposed for Sunday and for the holi- 
days on which sales, except b}- licensed innholders, arc 
prohibited.

OB^ERVA^'CE OF THE LoRD'S DaY. 

I respectfully suggest that in aoy revision of the laws con- 
cerning the observance of the Lord's Day which may be 
made, regard shall be paid to the necessit}' for a clearer and 
fuller explanation of the meaning of works of '♦ necessity 
and charity." In a city of the size of Boston, with its many 
important commercial interests, cases are continually arising 
into which the element of necessity seems to enter, but 
whether or not to the extent required by the law can be 
decided only by the courts. The police department has no 
authority in the matter outside the law, and there is no 
official or official bodv with the right to decide in advance 
whether or not a particular piece of work which seems to be 
necessary is of such a character as the law would sanction. 
I respectfully recommend that authority so to decide be 
vested, with proper safeguards, in some ofScial or official 
body easily accessible to persons desiring to do special 
work or business on the Lord's Day which they believe to be 
necessary. 

Value of Stolen Propertv. 

The value of stolen property recovered this year is 
reported to be $125,(528.39, less than the average for the 
past five years. This apparent falling off in the amoant of ( 

such property recovered is owing to the discontinuance of ( 

the practice of crediting to the " stolen property recovered " ■ 

account a large amount of leased property which had been 
pawned or pledged by the lessees, and which had never ! 

been reported as stolen. I 



I Private Business lv Public Streets. 

j The police are embarrassed in their efforts to secure a just 

I and lawful regulation of the use of the streets and sidewalks 

' for the purposes of private business. A canvass made in 

September showed that 338 permits issued by the superin- 
tendent of streets were in effect. Of these, 285 were for 
the use of parts of sidewalks in front of premises rented by 
the persons holding the permits, and 53 were for stands 
I occupied by persons having no permanent places of business. 
I The Police Commissioner can find no law which justifies the 






\ 



12 rOLICK COMMISSIONER. [Jan. 



\ 



use of any part of a public street for the purcliasc or the l 
sale of merchandise. Tiio exercise by the city of Boston \ 
of the authority to issue such permits could be derived ) 
only from an act of the Legislature. The system has giown •; 
up through fifty ^years and is confused, at least in the popular 1 
mind, by the existence of what are known as the market 
limits. To break it up would be to cripple a large, com- j^ 
plic-ated and legitimate business, which is carried on mainly 
to the satisfaction of the public. And yet it seems to be 
i necessary that such small parts of the system as may tend 

to ob.struction or to injustice to per ons renting neighboring 
lircniiscs should be discovered and eliminated; the part 
remaining siiould then be placed under the sanction of law. 
The police would thus be saved the emlarrassnient which 
has often arisen, of acting upon a compbint against the 

[dealer without a permit, brought by a neighboring dealer 
, holding a permit which the police have strong reason to 

' believe is without legal validity. I respectfully recommend 

a thorough investigation of the subject, in order that the 
authority to give these street |)rivileges may be established, 
\ and that thereafter pci-sons assuming such privileges without 

I riirlit in law mav be checked and punished. 

f Caimivixc; Coxcealed Weai'oxs. 

The act empowering cities and towns to grant licenses to 
persons asking tlie privilege of carrying loaded pistols or [ 
revolvers took cirect ilarch Ifi, IKOt;. From that date to 
November 30 the jwlice deimrtment received 443 applica- 
tions, of which 412 were granted. Each applicition calb 
for police investigation, for clerical service and for the use 
of printed forms ; and licenses are reissued annually. It 
seems to bo pro|)er that the persons licensed should pay a 
'■ small fee for each original issue or renewal, as in the case of 

!; all other persons holding licenses from the police depart- ' 

,S merit. I respectfully suggest an amendment to the law 

which will authorize the collection of a fee of one dollar in 
each case. I respectfully rcconnnend, further, that persons 
seeking licenses under this act who are residents of the 
Commonwealth shall receive them only m the cities or towns • 
respectively in which they have their legal domicile.

49,906 



The number of arrests for iho year is 49,906, l)eing an 
increase of 1,548 over last 3'car, and 4,647 more than the 
average for the past five years. There were 32,830 persons 
arrested for drunkenness, bein^ 532 more than last year, 
and 3,717 more than the average for the past five years. 
Of the arrests for drunkenness this year, there waa an in-

cent, in females from last jear. (See Tables XI., XII.) 

Of the total number of arrests for the year (49,906), 1,229

arrest in 40 was for such offence, or 2,46 per cent.

taken into custody were between the ages of twenty and 
forty. (See Table Xm.)

Bureau of Criminal Investigation. 
The "Rogues' Gallery " now contains 23,325 photographs, 
16,754 of which are photographs with Bertillon measure- 
ments, a system used by this department during the past 
eight years. In accordance with an act passed by the Legis- 
lature March 28, 1899 (chapter 203, sections 1 and 2), we 
are allowed photographs, with Bertillon measurements, of 
all convicts now in the several prisons in this State, and of 
those who have been confined there and who are measured 
under that system and photographs taken, — a number of 
which have already been added to our Bertillon cabinets. 
This, together with the adoption of the system by this de- 
partment in 1898, is and will continue to be of great assbt- 
ance in the identification of criminals. A large number of 
important identifications have thus been made during the 
year, for this and other police departments, through which 
the sentences iu many instances have been materially in- 
creased. The records of 845 criminals have been added to 
the records kept in this Bureau, which now contains a total 
of 29,329. .This Bureau has issued 360 prison reports ot 
discharged convicts, containing the full records, description, 
distinguishing marks, etc., of 117 convicts who were dis- 
charged during the year, and whose records were considered 
of sufficient importance to preserrc. Other police depart- 
ments were furnished with 48 copies of these reports. The 
number of cases reported at this office which have been in- 
vestigated daring the year is 12,881. There are 16,117 
cases recorded on the assignment books kept for this pur- 
pose, and reports made on these cases are filed away for 
future reference. Letters and telegrams to the number of 
about 2,000 yearly are now filed with the numbered reports 
to which they refer, so that all the papers pertaining to a 
case can be found in the same envelope, thus simplifying 
the matters when information is desired on any case. The 
system of indexing, adopted by this Bureau for the use 
of the department, now contains a list of records, histories, 
photographs, dates of arrests, etc., of about 90,000 persons. 
There are also " histories and press clippings," now number-

ing 5,7<)2, kept hy this Bureau, in envelope form, forpolif« 
reference. 

The finger-print system of identification, which was 
adopted in .lune last, has progressed in a satisfactory manner, 
and with its development it is expected that the identific-a- 
tion of criminals will be facilitated. It is also expected tliat 
the system will become verj- useful in tracing criminals and 
furnishing coiToborative evidence when serious crimes liave 
been comiuitted.

In the fir>t seven da^'s in Ma\% 11)06, the police listed 
ll>.i,44<; mule residents of Boston twenty years of age or 
more, as against HI.'), 214 listed in 1905. In the succeeding 
months up to .Sptenifnjr 10 there were 77.5 applications for 
supplementary listing, iw against 705 in 1905. In 1906 the 
numl>cr of ap|>licants to wiioni icrtificatea were refused w.os 
24, as against -S in 19(».'». 

TbcM; figures of two vears sliow tliat the enoniious task 
of listing at their homes in seven days nearly two hundred 
thoa^and men, many of them inJiouseholds in which P^nglish 
is not jipokcn, and by means of j)oliccnien who arc neither 
selected nor tmined for ^uch work, is now performed with

as near an approach to perfection as it is ever likely to 

attain. This belief is strengthened by the fact that in 1902, 

the last year before this work was taken up by the police, 

the supplemental applications numbered 4,096 ; in 1903, the 

first year of police work, 3,412; in 1904, 1,335. 

J It is fair to say that, of the 24 men whose supplemental 

f api)lications were rejected this year, none was susi>ected of 

• dishonest intent. 

i It is a matter for regret that after the 10th of September, 

; when no further certificates could be issued, some citizens 
'' of undoubted standing, whose names had been missed in 
May and who had failed to learn of the omission in time, 
were necessarily refused the certificates which they desired. 
There seems to be no remedy for such miscarriages. The 
fiill May list is issued in book form the 1st of July, and 
printed copies are not only to be seen at the office of the 
Election Commissionei-s and at |jolice headquarters but are 
distributed freely to political committees and other organi- 
zations, and even to individuals who apply. In July and 
August, and up to midnight of September 1st, the most 
liberal arrangements are made at headquarters for the re- 
ceipt of applications by day and by night. ^loreover, the 
formal announcements were supplemented this year with 
displayed advertisements in all the Boston daily newspapers. 
It is difficult to see what more can be done to inform and to 
accommodate citizens. 
I There is one defect or omission of the law establishing the 

;' Listing Board. Chapter 291 of the Acts of 1906 gave to 
the Listing Board all the powers and duties relative to listing 
and registration contained in chapter 279 of the Acts of 
1903, as amended by chapter 245 of the Acts of 1904. But 
apparently chapter 318 of the Acts of 1905 was overlooked. 
This last-mentioned chapter extended from September 10 to 
Septeml^r 20, the time for granting certificates to persons 
applying for supplementary registratiou on or before Septem- 
ber 1. The efiect of this omission was to restore the old 
limit of September 10, which in some cases is found to give 
insufficient time for the investigation required by law. It is 
therefore respectfully recommended tliat chapter 291 of the
