Ordinary soap often leaves them yellow or

that "bugbear" of dainty clothes being rotted and
burned out by strong chemicals and "dirt starters."

urged by Mayor Harrison In his annual
message, sent to the city council.
The mayor spared no words In de
claring that politics now control the
police department. He said that when
the council, through the committee on
schools, fire, police and civil service,
considers the commission's report and
recommendations a reorganization
should be brought about which would

"It will be necessary for your honor

serious consideration to the lines upon
which a proper and efficient organiza

"Politics may be said to be at the
root cf most evils of the department.
I5y 'politics' is meant not the partisan
ship created by the division of voters
in great parties, though this, of course,
exerts its influence in police circles,
but the social, religious, racial 'pull'
that asks consideration and advance
ment for an officer not because of his
individual merit, that asks leniency for
him regardless of the offense with
which he may be charged, on the
strength of matters lying entirely out-
s!de the range of police affairs." iThe
j elimination of this 'pull' is the pre-
requisite to an efficient police system.
HONESTY PHIMK XEC ESS1TY.
"The equation of personal honesty
may be raid to determine in largest
measure the Individual value of eacb
officer. A dishonest officer, no mat
ter what his efficiency as a thief-catch-i

i fender of life and property, is use
less as a guardian of the law. We
' must not forget that the temptations
which beset a policeman are many
I and ?reat; the methods by which he
! may be approached are most insidious
The men of the department must be
paid good, living wages. No leniency
must be shown to dishonesty. There
is no place on the department for a
'grafter.' Nor should consideration be
shown the drunkard.

"Political 'pull' in the department
has thrived because of police methods
countenanced and tolerated by the
public since the organization of the
force. Assignments of men in plain
clothes and in the detective bureau
have been jnade more at the solici
tation of friends, political and other
wise, than because of the efficiency
and fitness of the officer. As far as
the civil service law would permit,
promotions have been made for like
reasons. To counteract these evils, I
have recently directed that in all cases
where the record of the officer was
