visions of chapter 348, Acts of 1907, has assisted the elec-

1917.1 PUBLIC DOCUMENT — No. 49. 



The Automobile Law. 

The use of motor vehicles in the streets continues to 
occupy a large share of the attention of the public and of 
the police. The prosecutions under the automobile law in 
the police year ended Nov. 30, 1916, involved 4,449 persons 
and 4,664 separate charges. These do not include charges 
against automobile drivers for violation of park rules or 
charges against automobile drivers for violation of traffic 
rules unless such charges involved also violations of the 
automobile law. 

The first record of an automobile prosecution by the Bos- 
ton police was made only fifteen years ago, when the single 
offence of the year 1901 was the driving of a motor car iii 
a public park without a permit. In 1902. there were 33 
prosecutions; in 1903, 67; in 1904, 179; in 1905, 102; in 
1906, 30S; in 1907, 961; in 1908, 1,865; in 1909, 2,196; in 
1910, 2,334; in 1911, 1,899; in 1912, 2,359; in 1913, 3,190; 
in 1914, 3,829; in 1915, 4,172; in 1916, 4,664. 

Prosecutions resulted in the lower courts, as follows: —

were appealed, with the following results in the Superior 
Court: —

Dazzling Headlight Rule. 
A rule of the Highway Commission, which, through the 
approval of the Governor and Council acquired the force of 
law on and after Jan. 1, 1916, is as follows: — 

Wherever there is not sufficient light, within the limits of the high- 
way location, to make all vehicles, persons, or substantial objects 
clearly visible within said limits for a distance of at least 150 feet, the 
white lights which a motor vehicle is required to display by section 7 
of chapter 534 of the Acts of 1909, shall, when said vehicle is in motion, 
throw sufficient light ahead to show any person, vehicle or substantial 
object upon the roadway straight ahead of the motor vehicle for a 
distance of at least 150 feet. Any light thrown directly ahead or side- 
wise shall be so arranged that no dazzling rays from it or from any 
reflector shall be at any time more than 3J feet above the ground on 
a level road at a distance of 50 feet or more ahead of said vehicle, and 
said light shall be sufficient to enable the operator of the motor vehicle 
to see any person, vehicle, or substantial object upon the roadway or 
side thereof, for 10 feet on each side of the motor vehicle 10 feet ahead 
of said vehicle. 



12 POLICE COMMISSIONER. [Jan. 

With 65 complaints made in court the results were as 
follows; — 

Acquitted, 11 

Placed oafiSe, 41 

Fined, 13 

Three of the fines were appealed, witli the result that 1 
case was nol pressed and 2 were placed on file. It appears, 
tlicrcfort, that out of Go cases and 54 convictions 10 per- 
sons actually paid fines. 

It b ocly throu};h the decision of judges under this rule 
tliat tht police can obtain information that will afterwards 
ser\e them in courts. In addition to the summary of results 
given above it maj' be said that judges in dealing with cases 
gave varj'ing expressions of opinion, — several that they 
would crjt convict a man who had made any attempt to 
comply wfth the rule; and one, after hearing a case in full, 
refused to make a finding and placed it on file. Yet it b 
to the Sellings of courts alone that the police must look for 
guidance in any attempt to enforce the rule. Carefully 
prepared tests by experts on measured distances in a garage 
bear bat slight relationship to tlie evidence which must be 
procured bj' a policeman in a roadway after dark witli a mo- 
mentary glance at a car, moving witJi greater or less sp>eed. 

The language of the rule as to headlights is perfectly 
clear, and I feel sure that the public has been benefited by 
the attempts of automobile drivers to comply witJi its con- 
ditions; but prosecution, which is the only weapon of 
enforcem«]t which tlie police have, is made almost imprac- 
ticable b}" the requirements, necessary to any rule, of 150 
feet ahead, 10 feet on either side, for illumination, and 50 
feet ahead, 3| feet above ground as restrictions upon daz- 
zling ravs, and especially the conditions, which no two men 
might jodge alike, involving the degree of general lighting 
in a particular place, the "substantial objects" to be "clearly 
visible," and the "dazzling rays." None of these conditions 
can be reproduced as evidence, and when a case is contested 
a court 15 obliged either to acquit or to accept as proof the 
opinion of the prosecuting officer.

Police Listixg. • | 



Under a statute passed in 1903 the basis for the registra- 
tion of voters by the election commissioners was changed 
from the assessors' list of polls to a list to be prepared by 
the police department under *a house-to-house canvass of the 
city by policemen. The act was approved by the Governor 
April 30, to take effect on its passage, and the department 
was required to begin tJie work the next day and complete 
it in die first seven week days of May. Although this work 
was not only new to the police department, but of a charac- 
ter never before attempted, it was accomplished and was 
afterwards performed annually for twelve years up to and 
including the year 1915. 

The law required further that, besides completing the 
house-to-house canvass in the first seven week days of the 
montli, the police department should deliver to tlie election 
commissioners on or before the eighteenth day of the month 
a complete list of all male residents twenty years of age or 
upwards, arranged by wards and precincts, with ages, 
residences, occupations and places of residence on the cor- 
responding date the year before; and also a list of all 
women voters registered the year before and found at the 
same places in the new year. It was further provided 
that the list of male residents should be printed and in 
book form, a volume to a ward, and the books were usually 
delivered by the city printing department within about two 
months. The magnitude of this work is shown by the fact 
that in 1915 the original police list numbered 220,883 male 
residents found and 8,253 women voters verified; that 1,240 
policemen were employed in the canvass on the first day, 
1,069 on the second, 625 on the third, and 96 on the fourth; 
and that such were the diflBculties as to language alone that 
the pay of interpreters at 50 cents an hour amounted to $780. 

Meanwhile the election commissioners, using the manu- 
script list furnished to them on the eighteenth day, put 
into preparation the first voting list of the year. Every 
man whose name was on the list of registered voters of the 
year before, and was reported on the police list of the new 



14 POLICE COMMISSIONER. (Jan. 

year, was entered on the new voting list, which was deScient 
because of deaths, removals, omissions, etc. 

ANTicn the printed police lists appeared in June, copies 
were furnished to all political committees and to numerous 
officials and candidates, and were accessible to the public 
at the office of the election commissioners, at the Public 
Librarj" and its branches and at the police stations. 

Then began the supplemental listing of persons claiming 
the right to vote who had been absent temporarily or not 
reported by other occupants or overlooked for any other 
reason in the house-to-house canvass. This work as well 
as all other parts of the canvass was under the direction of 
a listing board composed in the past ten years of the chair- 
man of the board of election commissioners and the Police 
Commissioner. A man claiming the right to vote, whose 
name had not been listed, filed at police headquarters or, 
in the past two years, at any police station, a written 
and sworn statement of his claim. The statement was in- 
vestigated by the police of the division in which residence 
was claimed, and if found to be correct the listing and 
registration followed. If the police made an unfavorable 
report the claimant was invited to appear before the listing 
board and explain his case, and the decision of the board 
was final. 

Under tliese conditions the supplemental listings from 
1903 to 1911 numbered annually about 750, with an increase 
of about 50 per cent, in presidential years. In the last four 
years, with 1912 as a presidential year, the supplemental 
listings were as follows: — 

19r>, 1,609 

1913, 1,373 

1914, 1,862 

1915 2,0&S 

The increases in these years were due to four causes. 

1. The natural growth of the total lists from 207,556 in 
1911 tn 222,951 in 191.5. 

2. The statutorj' extension by about two months of the 
time within which supplemental listing was allowed. 



1917.] PUBLIC DOCUMENT — No. 49. 15 

3. The opening in the past two years of all police stations, 
instead of headquarters alone, to candidates for supplemental 
listing. 

4. The notification in writing by tlie election commis- 
sioners, under a new statute, of all persons on the list the 
year before and omitted in the new year, usually about 
12,000. 

Tn 1908 and 1909 efforts were made under the direction of 
the assessors to secure the return of the work to their board. 
Numerous hearings were held, and in 1909 a biU was passed 
to abolish the police listing, but it was vetoed by the Gov- 
ernor. In 1915, on petition of the mayor of Boston, sup- 
ported before the committee on taxation by the corporation 
counsel and officials of the assessing department, an act 
was passed abolishing the police listing, to take effect Jan. 
1, 1916. 

In all these movements the argument in favor was that 
inasmuch as the assessors were required to canvass the city 
for poll-tax payers, and they were especially expert in such 
matters, the return of the work to tl.. ;.". ^ould be a saving 
of money and an increase of eflSciency. The reply of the 
Police Commissioner to these points was that the saving, 
if any, would be slight and would soon disappear; that the 
assessors would require at least six weeks to make their 
canvass, as against a compulsorj' seven days and an actual 
four days by the police; that the preparation of the voting 
lists by the election commissioners would thus be much 
retarded; and that it could not be shown that the work 
of the assessors preceding the year 1903 was equal in ef- 
ficiency to that subsequently done by the police. 

On all occasions the Police Commissioner informed the 
legislative committees having charge of the several bills that 
he undertook to controvert the arguments of the assessors 
only in the interest of the truth; that if governed by self- 
interest alone every member of the police department would 
rejoice to be relieved of the Ibting; but that if a change 
were made it should be complete and not by means of a 
measure which should tie up the police department with 
the assessing department.

POLICE CO-M-MISSIONER. 



[Jan. 



In none of the bills offered was it proposed that the 
supplemental listing or assessing should be done entirely by 
the assessing department. The act which took effect Jan. 
1, 191G, provided that the police should distribute printed 
notices tliroughout the city just before the work of assessing 
was to be entered upon; and that in the matter of supple- 
mental assessment for voting purposes, a claimant should 
make application in writing to the election commissioners, 
whic* application should be investigated and reported upon 
by the police, and if it were found to be truthful, and tliat 
the applicant were in all other respects eligible, his name 
should be registered for voting and sent to the assessing 
department for assessment. 

Following tlie operations in 191G under the new law, tlie 
police were called upon by the election commissioners to 
investigate and report in writing upon the applications of 
4,721 persons who claimed the right to vote but had been 
overlooked by the assessors. These applications were, b\ 
wards, as follows: —

1917.] PUBLIC DOCUMENT — Xo. 49. 17 

I learn from printed reports of a conference of city officials 
that the original returns to the election commissioners under 
the new system were slow and unsatisfactory, and that the 
final publication was from two to three months later than 
heretofore. It was intimated, semiofficially, that the city 
authorities would apply to the Legislature of 1917 for an 
act requiring a return to the police listing. I should feel 
bound to object to such action, if proposed, on the fol- 
lowing principal grounds: — ^ 

First. — The labor and responsibility of the police in the 
performance of such a duty are so great that having been 
once relieved of the heavier part of it, while retaining the 
most delicate and difficult, the whole burden should not 
again be placed upon them. They appreciate the compli- 
ment involved in adding to the numerous political services 
which they perform under the laws a fiulher duty which 
is entrusted probably to no other police department in the 
■orld, certainly to none in the United States. 

Second. — Police listmg for political purposes is not the 
system of the other cities and towns of Massachusetts; they 
obtain from their assessors the information which they 
desire. 

Third. — A full return to the former method would not 
only be a burden upon the police, but in my opinion an 
injustice to the assessors, who should not be judged by the 
results of their first year as incapable of performing a pub- 
lic duty which throughout the State is in the hands of the 
assessors. 

Thefts of Automobiles. 

The thefts of automobiles have not nearly reached in 
Boston the numbers which other large cities report, but the 
subject has become a serious one to owners. The Boston 
police department has been making special efforts for a long 
time to remedy the situation, but with the carelessness of 
some owners, the recklessness of thieves, many of whom are 
young, and the apparent leniency with which the crime is 
regarded by the courts, it is evident that there will be much 
trouble in the future. The record for the year ended Nov. 
30, 1916, is shown in the following table: —

TiiE Salary of the Pouce Commissioxer. 

The present Polic-e Commissioner for the city of Boston 
hzs ser\ed as spch since June, 1906, the position having been 
established under statutes of that year, chapter 291- The 
duties which he undertook were those which had previously 
been performed by a board of three members, except that 
by the statute he was relie\ed of the granting of licenses 
for the sale of intoxicating liquors and for certain other 
privileges of less importance. Seventeen kinds of licenses, 
with an annual issue of more than 20,000, were left, however, 
under his authority; and the assistance rendered to the 
licensing board by law includes annually tJiousands of 
police investigations and written reports, a considerable 
numlx-r of which demand the j)ersonal attention of the 
Polic-e Commissioner. It is required that he shall engage 
in no other business and shall be a citizen of Boston. 

The Legislature of 1906 placed the salary- of the new Com- 
missioner at S6,000; the members of the former board of 
police had received an annual total of $14,000, I had no 
knowledge at the time of the plan upon which the bill was 
drawn, but the figures indicate that the new salarj- was 
intended to equal the highest then paid to heads of city 
departments, with the exception of that of the corporation 
c-ounsel, which was S9,000, and represented an earlier con- 
s«li<Iation of the office of city solicitor and corporation 



1917.] PUBLIC DOCUMENT — No. 49. 19 

counsel. In the preparation of the bill the city salaries of 
the treasurer and the auditor, S6,000 each, were doubtless 
found in their appropriate places in the books, but the fact 
seems to have been overlooked that under the separate 
headings of county, sinking fund and school accounts each 
was credited with additional allowances which operated and 
still operate to raise the total of their public income above 
the ligure given. 

The police department, with approximately 1,S00 police 
officers and employees, and an annual expenditure of about 
S2,SOO,000, is exceeded in numbers and cost by the school 
and public works departments, and is approached in those 
respects by no other. In 1906 the salary of the superin- 
tendent of streets was S5,000. It was increased afterwards 
to $7,500, and under consolidation as the public works 
department the city allowed to the commissioner S9,000 a 
year, with two division heads at §5,000 each. In 1906 the 
salary of the superintendent of schools was S6,000, and he 
had as assistants five super\isors at S3,7S0 each. The salary 
of the office is now 810,000 and the superintendent has 
five assistants at S5,496each. In 1906 the board of health 
consisted of three members; when it was changed to a 
single commissioner his salary was fixed at $7,500. 

I appreciate the importance of the offices which I have 
mentioned and the high character of the gentlemen who 
fill them. On no account would I appear to depreciate them, 
but it is my duty to the police department so to present its 
situation as to preser\'e its relative standing. The fact that I 
should personally benefit is an embarrassment which I must 
disregard; and I trust that as a public officer who never 
sought to secure or to retain the position, and who has 
never been drawn to it by salarj* as a paramount consider- 
ation, I may be relieved of suspicion. The office was created 
and the salary established by the Legislature; the present 
incumbent has been appointed by successive Governors, and 
the city, though it pays the salarj', has no legal power to 
raise or lower it. In this peculiar situation the subject 
can be brought forward only by means of such a statement 
as I am making herein. 



20 POLICE CO.MMISSIONER. (Jan. 

There is no associate or assbtant police commissioner; 
the responsibility of the department falls wholly upon the 
Commissioner. The statute directed him to appoint a scc- 
retar>' at 83,000 a year, and authorized him to employ 
legal counsel at a cost not exceeding $3,500 a year. The 
board of police had always been serxed by permanent coun- 
sel, but by combining the legal duties witJi those of secre- 
tarj- it has been possible to save practically all the authorized 
e.xpenditure for counsel, amounting in ten and a half years 
to more than 836,000. A police commissioner may save and 
spend, he is not expected to earn; but I may mention tlie 
fact that a statute drawn by the Police Commissioner and 
passed in 1907 has enabled the police to regulate strictly 
the use of streets for stands and other commercial purposes, 
and at the same time has produced an entirely new form of 
revenue for the city of Boston which already has amounted 
to about S240,000, and is continuing at the present rate of 
more than 827,000 a year. 

There cannot be a doubt that with the enlargement of the 
department, the increase in population and in the number 
and complexity of laws, the duties of the Police Commis- 
sioner which he cannot delegate are at least one-third greater 
tlian they were at the beginning of his service in 1906. 
The additions to the number of police oflBcers alone have 
been one-third, and without going carefully into the figures 
I am of the opinion that the added number is in itself 
within reasonable comparison of the total of the entire 
police forces of the eight cities and the nine towns which 
compose the territory of the metropolitan water and drainage 
board. 

For the foregoing reasons I respectfully recommend that 
the salarv' of the Police Commissioner for the city of Boston 
be increased from 86,000 a year to 88,000 a year. It is not 
a matter over which the city authorities have control, and 
all similar salaries in the past have been established by the 
Legislature and the Governor; but as this is a case in which 
I should be held to have a personal pecuniary interest, I 
am solicitous that the authorities of the city of Boston, 
which makes the payment, shall have early and full knowl- 



1917.] PUBLIC DOCUMENT — Xo. 49. 21 

ed^ of my intentions. At the same time, therefore, at 
which I have sent an advance copy of this recommendation 
to the Secretary of the Commonwealth, I have forwarded 
another copy to the mayor of Boston, with the expression 
of a hope that in any legislative proceedings on the subject 
an authorized representative of the citj- shall express its 
approval or its opposition. 

Respectfully submitted, 

STEPHEN O'MEARA, 
Police Commissioner for Ihe City of Boston.

arrested for drunkenness, being 7,240 more than last year, 
and 11,419 more than the average for the past five years. 
Of the arrests for drunkenness this year there was an in- 
crease of 12.9S per cent, in males, and an increase of 7.71 
per cent, in females, over last year. (See Tables XI., 
XIII.) 

Of the total number of arrests for the year (96,476), 835 
■were for violations of the city ordinances; that is to say, 1 
arrest in 115 was for such offence, or .86 per cent. 

Fifty-four and forty one-hundredths per cent, of the per- 
sons taken into custody were between the ages of twenty 
and forty. (See Table XII.) 

The number of persons punished by fines was 13,610, and 
the fines amounted to $114,788. (See Table XIII.) 

Sixty-four persons were committed to the State Prison, 
5,279 to the House of Correction, 70 to the Women's Prison, 
137 to the Reformatory Prison and 2,574 to other institu- 
tions. The total years of imprisonment were 2 life, 892 in- 
definite, 3,328 years, 1 month; the total number of days' 
attendance in court by officers was 48,222; and the witness 
fees earned by them amounted to $12,401.45. 

The value of property taken from prisoners and lodgers 
was $173,846.94. 

Fifty-four witnesses were detained at station houses; 
75 were accommodated with lodgings, a decrease of 78 from 
last year. There was an increase of 6.54 per cent, over last 
year in the number of insane persons taken in charge, an 
increase of about 28.98 per c^nt. in the number of sick and 
injured persons assisted, and an increase of about 8.58 per 
cent, in the number of lost children cared for. 

The average amount of property stolen in the city for the 
five years from 1912 to 1916, inclusive, was $180,713.44; in 
1916 it was $202,014.06, or $21,300,62 more than the aver- 
age. The amount of property stolen in and out of the city 
which was recovered by the Boston police was $311,530.58 
as against $291,289.43 last year, or $20,241.15 more. 

The average amount of fines imposed by the courts for the 
five years from 1912 to 1916, inclusive, was $123,477.52; in 
1916 it wa? $114,788, or $8,689.52 less than the average. 



26 POLICE COiDIISSIOXER. [Jan. 

The average number of days' attendance in court was 
47,650; in 1916 it was 48,222, or 572 more than the average. 
The average amount of witness fees earne<l was $13,329.69; 
in 1916 it was §12,401.45, or S928.24 less than the average. 
(See Table XIII.) 

Drunkenness. 
In arrests for drunkenness the average per day was 17S. 
There were 7,240 more persons arrested than in 1915, an in- 
crease of 12.52 per cent.; 44.56 per cent of the arrested 
persons were nonresidents and 46.15 per cent, were of foreign 
birth. (See Table XI.) 



Bureau of Criminal Inrestigalion. 
The "Identification Room" now contains 49,962 photo- 
graphs, 43,092 of which are photographs with Bcrtlllon 
measurements, a system used by the department for the past 
seventeen years. In accordance with the Revised Laws, 
chapter 225, sections 18 and 21, we are allowed photographs 
with Bertillon measurements taken of con\icts in the State 
Prison and reformatorj-, a number of which have already 
been adde<i to our Bertillon cabinets. This, together with 
the adoption of the system by the department in 1S9S, is 
and will continue to be of great assistance in the identifica- 
tion of criminals. A large number of important identifica- 
tions have thus been made during the year for thb an<l 
other police departments, through which the sentences in 
many instances have been materially increased. The records 
of 7S5 criminals have been added to the records kept in this 
Bureau, which now contains a total of 39.203. The number 
of cases reported at this oflBce which have been investigated 
during the year is 6,816. There are 28,989 cases reported on 
the assignment books kept for this purpose, and reports 
made on these cases are filed away for future reference. 
The sj'stem 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 160,000 persons. 
There are also "histories and press clippings," now number-

The finger-print system of identification which was adopted 
in June, 1906, has progressed in a satisfactory manner, and 
with it the identification of criminals is facilitated. It has 
become very useful in tracing criminals and furnishing 
corroborating evidence in many instances. 

The statistics of the work of this branch of the service are

ment, but as the duties are of a special character the follow-
