they arrested them all. One man, I

a a moment, and off they went. Oon
tllctlr.K numbers of taxlcahs were Riven
by citizen onlookers. With very little

within a few hours had the cab hroucht
i the station house and In a short time
"eral arrests of those concerned were
va'le. It took some week? to make the
wo final arrests. Thet-e two younsr mtir.

i'irt of the city and stayed there. But

'And yet. owing to the sensational
-taternents of newspapers and some
imbl.c odlclals, the notion was sent

hat It takes a crook lo catch a crook,
and v hut you want as Police Oinimls
Moncr is that kind of a man. You want
ii man like thn late. !yrnes, who was
head of the detecllve for.ee. I acknowl
edge that he was a grafter, and that he
did not scruple to make up perjured
cases to convict Individuals. But he
was efficient. Ho got tho result."
"I HUened to him only with disgust.
The result that Byrnes got was that he
went out n millionaire and corrupted
the whole force in other heads of the
police force had been doing for years.
Would Appoint No (.rafter.
"I came In as Mayor determined to
slop U this. And so I said to this fel
low: fllr, If I need to put a' thief or n
grafter nt the heart of Hie force In nr
der to catch thn thieves and criminals
of New York, then 1 nhall nut catch U
thlees and criminals of New York, for
I shall never put such a man nt the
hem! of the police force. You and
othe' who are talking IlkH you ought
lo be ashamed of yourselves.' I have it
dlsgunt igulnut all audi people. Home
clergymen even mine and talked thl
satin way to me.
"Mv tuition Id that I want an abso
lutely honest mnti and n gentleman ut
tlm head of the police force, and I am
going to stick lo that notion. (if
eourso lie must ido be Inlclllgcnl. Mr.
Waldo fulfils these conditions. When
you know you have an honest mini you
feel much relieved. Ho tuny miilio mis
takes, but he Is honest ami will not
corrupt the force, our force l show
ing hetier all Ihe time, b'or a genera
tion the heads and lenders of the force
have gone out of olllce millionaires. I
can count up several of them now who
are still alive and living the lives of
millionaires with their country houses
and 'heir yachts, Tlint Is nil at an evil.
"There are grafters still left from Ihe
old regime. They are being retired one
after another and every chance we get
We dismiss one. But the process of
purification and education takes Mimo
tline. V have made much progress
In the last three years, and I hope by
the end of my term to be able to say
that nil graft has been cut nit from the
.t,tt(M),(ino n l mr In (Irnft,
"You nsk me what the sources of
graft are. Why. the great sourcet of
graft are In the enfotcement of the
cxcl.p law, tho law ngnlnst gambling
and the law against prostitution. If
you turn the police loose on these three
things they will take raft right and
left. When I came In here an Mnvor
the 13,0011 hotels nnd saloon of this
city were paying, Ihe lent of them, $25
a month for graft, to the police and
politicians. Do you perceive that that
foots up to $3,300,000 a year?
"I am saying this to you to Illustrate
how much can be collected In this
great city from these three sources of
graft. Kach of the other three sources
can be made to yield nearly ns much
a the liquor trnlllc. In years past all
of these three sources were made to
pay tho maximum, nnd as I have said
to yon. the chief officers In the Police
Department retired one after another
"The excise gr.ift I have cut off ah
sol'itely. Rvery one knows that. If
there can be any graft at all there
now It Is some petty graft by some
teity Miimp ol a policeman here or
there. There Is no general graft paid -by
the liquor organizations any more,'
nor by the separate establishments, nori
by the brewers for the liquor trade.
I have tho thanki of the brewers nnd of
the liquor organizations for having done
that thing. In fact, they asked me to
do It. They came to me shortly after
I became Mayor and opened their hearts
to me and showed the w-ay they were
being grafted upon, and I stopped It.
"You nfk me If I think Becker repre
sents a type of police official? As I
have told you, in the pant there have
been notorious grafters in rulershlp
over the police. They went out mil
lionaires, one after another, for a gen
eration or more. But Becker was only
a Utile lieutenant 1 was cspectlng that
Kitne of Ihe old-time inspectora who ttre
left would be caughl. I whs looking for
It any day. It would not surprise me If
we were lo catch some of tlietn yet, I
cannot say (hut Becker Is a type. If
what w,i. I, stifled against Mini Is In all
respects true, he Is one of the jrentest
criminal or jh age, nnd not n type.
"lie was known in the forco as what
they call a 'good' policeman. That Is to
say, he did things. He got rcsultH, but
If Ihe evidence of Uosn and the others
must be taken as true in all respects,
.is It Is given lo me, be must have heen
without any moral sense whatever. But
I do not vlsli to say anything lo hurt
him. lie Is now struggling for his life,
.mil I do not wish to a.iy anything about
Ilreker tirnflrd Alone.
"There was a great outcry that
Becker was associated with some of the
big Inspectors of the department and
others lu the taking of gruft. of course
every man who thought for n moment
regarded that an very unlikely. Never
In the past have the big lenders of the
Police Department allowed themselves
to be led nnd managed In any graft en
terprises by u little lleutenunt of police.
"You ask me the best way to re
move temptation to graft? I have al
ready told you how we reduced Ihe
conlatt of the fotce with tht sources of
graft, In place of allowing all the In-j
spectora and captain lo be In contact
with It. we reduced It down to one
point of contact, namely, to tho Com
missioner himself, with this special
squad of ISO men under him, nnd sub
ject to the orders of no one else.
"Vou ask me to give my best Idea of
how to alleviate or dire the rvll of
female ptostltiitlou. That subject Is ns
old if the world. It existed ns far back
as we know, even nt that border line
whete futile scarcely ceases nnd history
hardly begins. It has continued ever
since. It will continue until the pas
sions iJ men have become softened and
"These unfortunnte women are what
men have made them. Very few of
them entered Into such n life as n mat-
tAP nf elinte.. Innir nu Ia .... n.l n
of men are so strong will women be
the victims of men. And when men i
come to deal with these their victims,
they should do It charitably and gentlv.
Some people seem to think that the
Mayor ought to lock them all up, or club
them out of town, or get rid of them In
some Indefinite way. There Is no law
for an; such thing. We have to do the
best wp can. The mot fortunate thing
Is to have them congregate In one
locality, or In few localities. That re
duces the evil to a minimum.
FATHER DIES IN VAIN

His Yoimr Daughter Found

the way downstairs, carrying the boy
lu his arms. When he reached the

near the head of the stairs. It Ih be
lieved that Mendell walked past her In
the Htnoke tilled hallway ns. he went to
his death. Both bodies had heen
slightly scorched. Death, however, wns
probably due to asphyxiation.

double tragedy until several hours later.
She collapsed and last night was In the

Mendell'. sister, Mr?. Hassemer, at 347
