REPORT. 



Headqcartees of thk Pouck Departmesi, 
Office of the Policf, Cojcmissioseb. 29 Pkmbebtos Square, 
Boston, Dec. 1, 1907. 

To His Excellency Curtis Guild, Jr., Oovenwr. 

Your Excellency : — As Police Commissioner for the 

city of Boston, I Iiave the honor to present, in compliance 

with the provi.^ion of chapter 291 of the Acts of 1906, a 

report of the work of the police department for the year 

ended Xov. 30, 1907. 

Boston' ix Co-Mpahisox with Other Cities. 

The purpose of a police dejiartinent is not to manufacture 
statistics, but to preserve order and to enforce the laws. 
The theor}' lately exploited by a western statistician, to the 
discredit of Boston, that the relative " wickedness " of a city 
can be determined by the number of arrests per thousand of 
population made by its police force, b childish. It leaves 
out of consideration the character and .scope of the laws and 
the ordinances under which the police force openik,es, and it 
ignores the vital question of police vigilance and zeal. 

Under this theorj', a mining camp with no laws except 
against murder and horse stealing, and those badly enforced, 
would shine in righteousness l)y comparison with the best- 
ordered city on the continent. If the police force of a city 
made fifty thousand arrests in one year, and the next year, 
through laziness or inditTerencc, made but twenty-five thou- 
sand, the " .vickedne-ss " of the city, according to this theory, 
would have been reduced by half. 

It is undoubtedly true that the police of Boston have 
more laws, ordinances and regulations to keep in mind, and 
a wider range of offences to check, than the police of any 
other American city. I believe it to bo true that enforcc-

POLICE CO.AOnSSIOXER. [Jan. 



f 



ment in many directions has been carried forward here so 
long and so steadily tiiat the more flagrant offences of cer- 
tain kinds are no longer committed, and the activities of 
the police are directed to phases of vice which in other 
cities receive no consideration. 

A few years ago, for instance, an^' policeman or citizen 
well informed in sach matters could have given offhand the 
addresses of a score of houses fitted, furnished and carried 
on by professional gamblers for gambling on a large scale. 
In those days, just as in other cities at present, arrests for 
gambling or for keeping gambling places indicated gambling 
of that character. To-day no such place exists in Boston, 
and nevertlieless the airests last 3'ear for gambling or for 
being present where gambling was going on or where gam- 
bling implements were found nuinl>ered 1,687, against 1,114 
the 3ear before. The police are going further with the law 
than ever before, and the arrests which the}' make are for 
incidental gambling in pool rooms, in the open streets, in the 
Chinese quarter and in a great variety of barns, kitchens 
and lofts. It is probable that not 20 persons of the 1,687 
arrested were attempting to make an exclusive basiness of 
gambling, and it is ecjually proljable that in no other Ameri- 
can cit}' would 1 in 20 of those men and boj's have been 
arretted for like practices. 

In the same category may bo placed more than 700 prose- 
cutions for violation of the Sunday law, almost 1,000 based 
upon misconduct by persons operating automobiles, and the 
large number of 3,000 boys and girls under the age of seven- ' 

teen who were in the hands of the police under the new juve- 
nile laws, as delinquent or wayward children. 

Another suggestion is found in the punishment of offences 
against the liquor laws. In the ^ear just closed there were 
188 prosecutions, against 212 the 3'ear before. The de- 
crease in the number does not indicate lack of police vigi- 
lance, but the effect of vigilance sustained year after 3-ear. 
The "kitchen bars," as the places in which liquor b sold 
without a license are commonly called, have been pressed so 
hard and have become so scarce that the police, who form- 
erly found and entered them almost at will, are now forced 



1908.] PUBLIC DOCUMENT — No. 49. 7 

to strategem and elaborate disguise in order to pla.3 them- 
selves where evidence can be obtained. Sunday was form- 
erly the great day for the " kitchen bar ; " but now, despite 
the fact thixt hotels are selling liquors freely with food and 
that practically all the people are idle, the arrests for drunk- 
enness in the whole city in the twenty-four hours beginning 
Sunday morning at 8 o'clock number only about 25, or much 
less than a fourth of the average for a week day. 

Moreover, tiiere is a situation peculiar to Boston which 
makes any theory of " wickedness " based upon the ratio of 
arrests especially worthless. It is the great proportion of 
nonresidents lurested, particularly for drunkenness. As 
shown in detail elsewhere, 20,981 of the persons arrested in 
Boston last year, or3().75 percent., were nonresidents; and, 
of the 37,389 persons arrested for drunkenness, 17,0G1, or 
45.63 per cent., were nonresidents. This is an increase 
from the year before of .C)9 per c«nt. in the nonresident part 
of the total airests, and of LOtJ per cent, in the arrests of 
nonresidents for drunkenness. 

Arrests of Nonresidents for Drunkenness. 

The burden upon the Boston police in tlic great numbers 
of di-unken persons not residents of Boston for whom they 
are compelled to cai-e is very heavy. A full tabulation for 
a period of twelve months, ended July 1, 1907, was made, 
and, though intended for another purpose, a sui-mar}' of the 
information which it contains should be jriven. 

In these twelve months the arrests for drunkenness num- 
Ix^red 35,728. Of the persons arrested, 408 were seamen, 
1,557 had homes outside the State, 2,454 had no homes, 
and 11,528 c-ame from 190 Massachusetts cities and towns 
outside of Boston, Against this total of 15,947 strangers 
stands the number 19,781, representing residents of Boston, 

First in number among outside places is Cambridge, 
2,100 of whose residents became so intoxicated in Boston a.s 
to require arrest. That number is greater than the entire num- 
ber of aiTests made for drunkenness in any one of ten Boston 
police divisions. Of the 190 Massachusetts cities and towns 
represented, those which contributed 50 or more intoxicated

Sunday Law ExFoncEMENT. 

The Sunday law has been enforced throughout the year, 
and is still enforced, on a definite and wdl-considored plan. 
In December, 1906, all inemlxrs of the police force were 
supplied with printed instmctions which included a list of 
occupations which the law specifically authorized. They 
were directed to take the names of all persons engaged in 
oceupations not so specified, and to apply to the coiurts for 
summonses. Before the following Sunday tliey were in- 
formed by printed order of the cases in which the courts 
either refused sunmionses or discharged the defendants after 
hearing, on the ground that their occupations came under 
the general provision of the law concerning works of neces- 
sitv or charity ; and they were instructed that in similar 
cases no further prosecutions were to be made. This 
methml was followed from week to week, and in a cora- 
lanitively short time, every member of the fo.'ce was in- 
formed as to the construction placed upon the law by the 
lower courts, as affecting particular oc<.ui)ation3. 

Not one arrest was made in the whole year, and no at- 
tempt was made to stop work, for the police were instructed 
that they had no legal right to do either. Exaggerated 
reports of what the police were doing and what they in- 
tended to do were printed while the matter was a novelty ; 
when it was no longer a novelty the reports ceased, and the 
impression was thus given to the public that a spasmodic 
attempt had been made in the beginning, and that after a 
short time all effort to enforce the law had l>een abandoned. 

TIic truth is, tliat the entire numl>er of prosecutions in 
twelve months was but 737 ; that there was no deviation 



10 POLICE COMMISSIONER. [Jan. 

from the original plan ; that only as the lower courts justi- I 

tied ixirticular occui^tions or the refusal of the district | 

attorne}" to prosecute appealed cases made police work use- | 

less, were prosecutions on particular lines abandoned ; and | 

that to-dav the people have so accommodated themselves to \ 

the law that it is enforced with an average of not more than ; 

five or six prosecutions a week. ■ 

Individual policemen are not allowed to judge of the \ 

legalitv of actions witnessed by them involving labor or 
business. When such actions are not included among those 
permitted by the law or sanctioned by recent court deci- 
sions, concerning both of which they have been fully j 
informed, it is their duty to report the cases for the judg- ■ 
ment of those charged with that responsibility. This 
method removes apjiarent breaches of the Sunday law be- j 
j'ond the reach of possible favoritism, and makes enforce- j 
ment, so far as the police are concerned, uniform in all parts | 
of the city. | 
In three classes of cases a pronounced disagreement as to \ 
the law arose between the lower courts and the district at- 
torney. Practically all the justices of the municipal and 
district courts ruled that the law prohibited the making and 
the delivery of ice cream on Sunday ; the making and the 
deliver}' of bread outside the hours specified in the law ; and 
the pla3'ing upon musical instruments in hotels and res- 
taurants. The lower courts convicted in 89 out of 92 ice 
cream cases, in 105 out of 113 bread cases, and in 27 out of 
'■ 28 cases involving performance upon musical instruments. 
In the beginning the persons concerned paid their fines, 
; and their acceptance of the rulings was further shown by 
I their appeals to the Legislature so to amend the law as to 
I permit them to continue in their occupations. A few cases 
I in each class were appealed, and were nol-prosscd by the 
j district attomc}'. Thereafter all prosecutions were followed 
( by appeals, with a similar result. The police, believing 
that they should take their law from the highest court which 
they could reach, continued the prosecutions long enough to 
determine the fact that they would be without ultimate 
eflect. The police force was then notified tliat further prose- 



190«.] Pr-.TTC DOCUMENT — No. 49. 11 

cutioas of these classes of cases would be outside the range 
of practical police work, and were to be discontinued. 

Theexistinf,' situation injures the dignity of the law, and 
is enibarra-ssing not only to the police but to conscientious 
persoos engaged in these occupations. Without expressing 
an opinion as to what the decision should be, the Police 
Commissioner earnestly desires and recommends tiiat the 
Leirislatarc shall .so express its purpose that there shall be no 
lonirer any doubt as to the true interpretation of the law. 

Particulars of prosecutions arc as follows, all representing 
action by the lower courts : — 

Unnecessary work in shops, buildings, and public places:

The total number of prosecutions as given above varies 



12 POLICK CO-MMISSIOXER. [Jar.. 

slightly from the total contained in the detailed tables, the 
variation being dae to the inclusion in the latter of certain 
offences committed on .Sunday, but not in violation of the 
Sunday laws ; that i» to say, offences wliich would have been 
violations of law, no niatter on what day committed. 

ACTOMOISILE PlIOSECLTIOXS. 

The work of restraining the illegal use of automobiles has 
been carried on steadily, ami the great decrease in the num- 
ber of complaints from citizens received by the police or 
printed in the newsfnpers indicates increased caution and a 
l>etter sen;?c of public re.<ponsibility on the part of persoas 
operating cars. The police have made 0(jl prosecutions. 
The care with which they Itavc prepared their cases and the 
5 readiness with which the municipal and district courts hare 

accepted their tc.?tiiw>ny is .-shown by the fact that in but 18 
: instances were def»?oflant-f discharged. In perhaps foor- 

j fifths of the cases tbfi- per^^as accused pleaded guilty, and 

'■ in almost all others ttey were convicted after hearing. The 

; . fines imposed araounte<l t/» $!»,344. AH the figures which 

T follow represent action by the lower courts, no attempt 

being made to follow the fcvv appealed cases. The causes 
of prosecution and the deposition of cases were as fol-

In the general tables of offences, those involving the 
operation of automobiles are under different headings, such 
as violation of laws and violation of park rules; but hero 
all are brought together. 

Juvenile Offenders. 
The prevention and the detection of offences against per- 
son and property committed by juveniles continue to present 
the most difficult task to the police and the most sinister 
suggestion as to the future to the people of Boston. The 
statistics which follow were prepared especially for the pur- 
pose of showing the number of jjcrsons under the age of 
seventeen 3'ears who were in the hands of the police from 
one cause or another in the twelve months ended Nov. 30, 
1907; their ollVnces, their ages and 'he disposition of their 
cases. These figures will not accord precisely with those 
contained in the tables attached to this report, because in tlie 



14 



POLICE COMMISSIONER. 



[Jan. 



latter cases the cliissification is asually witli regard to the 
offences, ratlier than to the ages of the offenders. 

The first full year of the operation of tlie juvenile laws 
passed in 11)0(5 shows no decrca.se in the vigilance of the 
police or in the loyalty with which they took up the work 
on the first of September of that year. In the first three 
months in which the laws were in effect the police handled 
725 juvenile cases, and in the succeeding twelve months, 
herein reported upon, rather more than four times as many. 

I have no complaint as to the jH-actical working of the 
laws, but as to their effect I am still in doubt. I fear that 
no probation force exists that is adc<jimte to the work of 
watching the 1,11U ofi'cnders placed on probation, not to 
speak of the 1,02.3 cases filed after conviction, which dispo- 
sition partakes of the nature of jirolxition. There Ls danger 
and in a measure certainty that the dread of arrest has dimin- 
ished, and that the boy who ha=i been at court and returns 
free and apparently unharmed often takes on the airs of a 
hero rather than the mien of a penitent, and tliat his play- 
mates are as likclv to emulate as to avoid his conduct. 

The number of juveniles in the hands of the police at each 
age, from one year u|)ward, all under eight being included 
among neglected children, is as follows : — 

Onp year 1

E.XTH.v Police Dutv. 

The 3'ear just closed was undoubtedly the busiest in the 
histon' of the Boston police force. An unusual amount of 
extra duty was placed upon the men, but it was performed 
with a zeal and a loyalty wliich can be known only to their 
superiors. The ^la}' listing, fof in.-?tance, which has alwa3-s 
been regarded as a task to test the strength of the force, 
came in the midst of weeks of tr3'ing extra service by hun- 
dreds of men, made necessary by the teamsters' strike then 
at its height. The situation was .«o critical that one influ- 
ential body of citizens called for the militia, and another de- 
manded that the police should not attempt the listing work. 
But the police proved themselves equal to the double task 
imposed upon them, in addition to their regular service. 
The strike disorders diminished and finall}' disappeared, and 
the listing was so well done that no more than the usiml 
number of persons applied for supplemental listing. 

AVinExixG Scoi'E OF Police "Work. 
There is a notable tendency to place upon the police more 
and more work of gi-eat public importance which is foreign 
to what was fonnerly regarded as within the scope of legiti- 
mate police duty. Until lately, for example, the business 
of policemen at voting places was merely to preserve order. 
They are now made an integral and vital part of the machin- 
ery of elections. Policemen in the earl}' morning carry 
from th«! ofBce of the Election Commissioners to the two 
hundred and five voting places the ballots, ballot boxes, 
check lists and other appurtenances, lacking any one of 



1908.] PUBLIC DOCUMENT— No. 49. 17 

which votinor could not proceed. It is a policeman who 
hands the key of the ballot box to the warden, witnesses and 
certifies to the number registered, and is the custodian of the 
key through the day. A policeman watches the proceed- 
ings of election officers from the opening of the polls until the 
final returns are handed to him for delivery to the Election 
Commissioners. He must be informed as to all the condi- 
tions under which voting should proceed and the ballots be 
handled and counted, for it is his duty to act instantly, 
should an}- condition be violated. He hiis printed instruc- 
tions from his own superiors and from the Board of Election 
Commissioners. He holds in his hand a list of voters in the 
precinct whose confinement in hospitals or penal institu- 
tions makes it impossible that their names should legally be 
voted upon. He holds also a printed descriptive list of all 
voters in the precinct, and uses it constantly as a means of 
checking attempts at fraud. And when the polls are closed 
and the count is begun, it is a policeman who must watch 
ever}' movement of the election oiBcers, with a full knowl- 
edge of the things which they should or should not do ; see 
to it that a dozen details are observed in sealin;; and other- 
wise preimring the returns, and then take them for personal 
delivery to the Election Commissioners. As any member 
of the department is liable to be detailed for this work, and 
as several hundred arc actually .so detailed at each of the 
four primary and regular elections held 3'early, a.,d as this 
is but one of many directions in which new laws have placed 
new duties upon the police, the requirement of intelligence 
on their part as well as courage and integrity is far greater 
than it ever w:is before. 

The police arc proud of this increasing trust M-hich is re- 
posed in them by the Legislature, but no one outside the 
force itself seems to have thought that there is a limit to'the 
kind and the quantity of the v.ork which they can do. Un- 
der an act |)asscd by the Legislature of 1907 they have 
already investigated and reported U|)on the chamcter of 
about 800 applicants for licenses to store and sell mer- 
chandise in the public strcet-s, and upon the relations to 
public trafHc of the proposed stands. Under another act 



18 POLICE COMMISSIONER. [Jan. 

passed in 1907 the police Avill be called upon annually to 
make thorough investigations of the character and fitness of 
about 7,000 citizens proposed for inclusion in the jury list. 

Stkexgth of the FoncE. 

There has been no increase in the strength of the patrol 
force for nearly seven j'ears. At least 100 additional men 
utre needed, to enable it to meet the increasing require- 
ments of regular polic« work. The law allowing one day olf 
in fifteen makes necessary the appointment of about 100 
men, in order to maintain the daily strength of the force; 
but the original need of reinforcements remains unsatisfied. 
It must soon be met, despite the financial burdens of the 
municipality, and for as long as it is deferred the calls for 
additional policemen which come from all parts of the city 
nuist remain unanswered. 

Xo attempt to estimate the relative strength of police 
forces of laige cities by the number of men to the thousand 
inhabitants or to the square mile has any application to 
Boston. This is a city of very small area, which is the 
centre of a population twice as great as that with which it is 
officially credited. It is a city of streets and houses and 
people, lacking the gicat tracts of prairie and vacant land 
which form parts of almost all other large American cities. 

Discipline of the Fouce. 
Comment upon the discipline and effectiveness of the 
force by the official at its licad is a delicate matter. The 
present conmiissioner feels justified, however, in expressing 
the belief that the improvement which had been going on 
for years has been continued. He has sought no guide in 
his treatment of the whole department and its individual 
members other than common sens*? and fair play. He has 
endeavored to make plain the fact thatdut}' well done is the 
only means of securing special consideration or advancement. 
He believes that this lesson has been thoroughly learned b^' 
the police force, to its own benefit and the benefit of the 
public, and that it is the best possible foundation for further 
improvement.

Jurisdiction" over the Harbor. 

The AVar De|iartmcnt of the United States, through the 
United States Engineer Office, has called my attention to 
the fact that navigation in that part of Boston Harbor kno«n 
as President Koads is seriously endangered by the pre.-*nce 
of vessels, which from time to time anchor in or near the new 
thirty-five-foot channel. 

Altliough the United States has passed a law forbidding 
such anciionige, it is in Boston witiiout the means efficiently 
to enforce it. The harbor master for the i>ort of Boston, 
who is appointed by the Police Commissioner, is the officer 
who would naturally regulate the anchorage of vessels over 
the entire hari)or. His jurisdiction is, however, as the law 
now stands, confined to the "upper harbor" of Boston, 
which docs not include the area in ciuestion. 

That a proper supervision and regulation of vessels anchor- 
ing in the harbor may be had, I reconnnend such legislation 
as shall give to the Lirbor master the extended jurisdiction 
necessary. 

The Work of Listing. 

Under existing laws the Boston police are required to 
visit in the first seven week days of May in each year every 
building in the city of Bcjston ; to ascertain and record the 
names, ages, occupations and places of residence on the h'rst 
day of May in the cuiTcnt year and in the next preceding 
year of all male persons of twenty years of age or upwards ; 
to verify in certain respects the names and residences of 
women vottTS ; to record the names of persons from whom 
information is received; and to identify m writing every 
building, suite and tenement so visited. The police are 
re()iiired further to transmit to the Board of Election Com- 
missioners on or before May 18 in each year complete lists, . 
arranged by wards and precincts and in the order of street 
numbers, embodying all information concerning male resi- 
dents thus obtained. 

As these lists comprise nearly 200,000 male residents 
and the further inquiries affect about 14,000 women voters, 
it is only by means of thorough organization and the u^k; of 



20 



POLICE COinUSSIOXER. 



[Jan. 



almost the entire strength of the police force that the work 
can be accomplished within the time limits established by 
law. In the event of public disorder or calamity at the 
time of listing, the police might find it impossible to pro- 
tect life and property and maintain order, and yet comply 
with the time requirements of the listing laws. As the police 
lists are the foundation of the votinglists for all the elections 
of the year, a serious failure in listing would throw the 
political system of the city and of the State into extraor- 
dinary confusion. 

I recommend the passage of an act providing that if, for the 
reasf>ns suggested, the Police Commissioner for the city of 
Boston should in any year consider it necessary so to do, he 
should have the right, after notice to the Listing Board and 
to the Board of Election Commissioners of the city of Boston, 
to take for the work of listing additional time, not exceed- 
ing ten week days. Such an eraergenty might never arise, 
though in 1907 it was imminent because of the large force 
of police required in connection with the teamsters' strike ; 
but in a matter of so great importance advance provision 
should be made. 

The number of male residents of Boston twenty years of 
age or more listed by the police in the first seven days of 
May, 1907, was 195,900, as against 195.446 in 1906. 
The number of names added in the supplemental listing was 
754, as against 751 in 1906, 697 in 1905, 1,280 in 1904, 
and .3,319 in 1903, the first year. It is evident, from the 
evenness with which the supplemental listing has run as to 
numbers in the past three jears, that the original work of 
listing is now as near perfection as it ever can be brought.

$11, 149.99. 

The value of property taken from prisoners and lodgers 
was $7t),70l).77. 

Eighty-eight witnesses were detained at station houses ; 
13 persons were accommodated with lodgings, — a decrease 
of 38.09 per cent, from last year. There was an increase of 
about 4.40 per cent, from last year in the number of insane 
persons taken in charge, an increase of about 8.30 per cent, 
in the number of sick and injured persons assisted, and a 
decrease of about 1.12 per cent, in the number of lost 
children cared for. 

The average amount of property reported stolen in the 
city for the five years from 1903 to 1907, inclusive, was 
$139,94(>.75 ; in 1907 it was $135,(514.(39, or $4,332.0G less 
than the average. The amount of jjroperty reported stolen 
in and out of the city which was recovered by the Boston 
police was $197,620.44, as against $208,324.08 last 3'ear, or 
$10,703.64 less. 

The average amount of fines imposed by courts for the 
five years from 1903 to 1907, inclusive, was $103,530.58; 
in 1907 it was $110,129.60, or $6,599.02 more than the 
average. 

The average number of days' attendance in court was 
36,207; in 1907 it was 36,778, or 571 more than the aver-

inents, a system used bj' this department during the p:ist 
nine years. In accordance witli an act ]iassed by the Legis- 
lature iLarch 28, 1891) (cliaptcr 203, sections 1 and 2), we 
arc allowed photographs, with Bertillon measurements, of 
all convicts now in the several prisons in this State, and of I 

those who have been confined there and who are measured I 

under that system and photographs taken, — a number of • 

which have already been added to our Bertillon cabinets. i 

This, together with the adoption of the S3"stem b}' this dep.irt- 
ment in 18i>8, is and will continue to be of great assistance in 
the identitication of criminals. A large number of important 
identiticatiens have thus been made during the year, for this 
and other police dejiartments, through which the sentences 
in many instances have been materiall}- increased. The 
records of 874 criminals have been added to the records 
kept in this Bureau, which now contains a total of 30,203. 
This Bureau has issued 3G0 prison reports of discharged 
convicts, containing the full records, description, distinguish- 
ing marks, etc., of 145 convicts who were discharged daring 
the year, and whose records were considered of sufficient 
importance to i^reserve. Other police departments were 
furnished with 48 copies of these reports. The number of 
cases reported at this office which have I)ecn investigated 
during the year is 10,304. There are 17,5t)7 cases recorded 
on the assignment books kept for this purpose, and reports 
made on these cases are filed away for future reference. 
Letters and telegrams to the number of about 2,000 yearly 
arc now tiled with the numbered reports to which they 
refer, so that all the i^ix-rs pertaining to a uise can be found 
in the same envelope, thus simplifying the matters when in- 
formation is desired on an}' 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 100,000 persons. There are also 
" histories and press clippings," now numbering (},8f>8, kept 
by this Bureau, in envelope form, for police reference. 

The finger-print S3'stem of identification, which was 
adopted in June, llt0(>, has progressed in a satisfactory 

manner, and with its development it is expected that the

identification of criminals will be facilitated. It has become 
very useful in tincing criminals and furnishing corroboi-ative

POLICE COMMISSIONER. 



[Jan. 



Collective. 

Collective luusicians' licenses are granted to bands of per- 
sons over tifteeu years of age to play on musical instruments 
in company with designated processions, at stated times and 
places. 

For these licenses there were 154 applications, 152 of 
which were granted and 2 rejected. 

Plblic Lodging-hocses. 

Every building in the city of Boston, not licensed as au 
inn, in which ten or more pei'sons are lodged for twenty-five 
cents or less each per night, is a public lodging-house, under 
chapter 242 of the Acts of 1904 ; and the Police Commis- 
sioner is authorized to irrant licenses to such lodsrinsr-houses 
after the inspector of buildings has certified that the building 
is provided with proper exits and appliances for giving alarm 
to the inmates in case of fire, and the Board of Health has 
certified that the sanitary condition is satisfactory. Under 
this law 19 applications for licenses were received; all of 
them were granted, and licenses issued. One license was 
surrendered and cancelled, and another issued in its place. 

The following shows the locations of the licensed lodging- 
houses and the number of persons lodged in each during the 
year: —

Carrying Concealed Weapons. 

The act emiwwering cities and towns to grant licenses to 
persons asking the privilege of carrying loaded pistols or re- 
volvers took effect March 16, 190G. From Dec. 1, 1906, 
to Nov. ,30, 1907, the police department received 681 appli- 
cations, of which 625 were granted and 56 refused. Each 
application calls for police investigation, clerical service and 
printed forms. These licenses are reissued annually. It 
seems to be proper that the persons licensed should pay a 
small fee for each original issue or renewal, as in the case of 
all other pursons holding licenses from the police depart- 
ment ; and I respectfully suggest an amendment to the law 
which will authorize the collection of a fee of $1 for each 
license. 

Pexsioxs and Benefits. 

Dec. 1, 1906, there were 201 pensioners on the roll. 
During the 3car 17 died, viz., 3 lieutenants, 1 inspector, 1 
sergeant and 12 patrolmen ; and 24 were added, viz., 2 cap- 
tains, 2 lieutenants, 1 sergeant, 17 patrolmen and the widows 
of patrolmen Harris and DeCoursey, leaving 208 on the roll 



I 

42 POLICE COMMISSIONER. [Jan. 

at date, including the widows of 11 and the orphans of 1 
policeman, who died from injuries received in the service. 

The payments on account of pensions during the past year 
amounted to $128,852.81, and it is estimated that $131,- 
057.50 will be required for pensions in 1908. This does 
not include pensions for 1 captain, 1 inspector, 1 sergeant 
and 5 patrolmen, all of whom are si.\ty-five jears or over, 
and are entitled to be pensioned on account of age and term 
of service. 

The invested fund of the police charitable fund on the 
30th of November last amounted to $207, ,550. There are 
62 beneficiaries at the present time, and there has been paid 
to them the sum of $7,801 during the past 3-ear. 

The invested fund of the Police Relief ^V.ssociation on the \ 

30th of November was $98,405.98. 

FiXAXCIAL. 1

ment, including the pensioned police officers, house of deten- : 

tion, station house matrons, listing persons twenty years of • 

age or more and police signal service for the financial year. ! 

The total expenditures for police purposes during the past ' 

3'ear, including the pensions, house of detention, station 
house matrons and listing persons twenty years of age or ' 

more, but exclusive of the maintenance of the police signal 
service, were $1,886,045.68. .' 

The total revenue paid into the city treasury from fees for ' 

licenses over which the police have supervision and for the 
sale of unclaimed and condemned property, etc., was $47,- 
497.55. (See Tabic XIV.)
