An Organization That Can
Take No Holiday.
THE POLICE OP NEW YORK CITY.
Tho Force Numbers Nearly S,50O Men,
and Last Year Ita Member Hade Over
81,000 Arrests Some of the .Require
ment or m "Dandy Copper.'
Oopyright, 1890, by American Pre Association.
Can yon tight Can you ran as fast as a
rwtft footed fugitive? Have you a cool head
and Iron nerves? Do yon know the location
of all tho street and public buildings in
the city of New York and adjacent suburbs?
Are you familiar with the state and mu
nicipal laws? Can yon discriminate between
a drunkard and an invalid, an honest man
and a rogue r Are you a bit of a surgeon,
capable of aiding an injured person? Can
you restrain your temper when insulted?
Are you able to keep a revolver undrawn
until it is needed, and refrain from whack
ing heads with a club save in cases of
emergeucy? Is your physique without a
flaw and your education fair? Can you re
sist the temptations of bribes, whisky and
women? Are you in the prime of life, over
5 feet 8 inches tall, and free from suspicion
of crime or dissolute living?
If your answer to these queries is yes,
and you are, besides, a resident of New
York, then persuade a few prominent citi
zens to back yonr application, and in the
course of several months you may blossom
oat as a full fledged "dandy copper of the
Broadway squad." The prospects, how
ever, are more favorable for your getting a
preliminary training as a mud wader and
goat chaser out Kingsbndge way.
The police force of the city of New York
at the present time consists of 3,437 men,
divided as follows: Commissioners, 4: su
perintendent, 1; inspectors, 4; enptains, SO;
sergeants, 15C; detective serseants In
spector Byrnes' force, 40; doormen, 76:
roundsmen, 1C2; patrolmen, 2,90!; on pro
bation, 49. -
The probationers are the new appointees
who have passed the physical examination,
but are required to attend a school of in
struction prior to donning tho blue uni
forms. The apartment in which they meet
each forenoon at the headquarters, on Mul
berry street, looks for all the world like
the big study room of a village academy.
The men occupy rows of benches facing
their teacher, who sits at a table on a raised
platform and scolds, praises and rules like
a real pedagogue. No whispering is al
lowed; neither Is corporal punishment. An
offender, instead of being soundly birched,
is fined. Full information is given the pu
pils regarding their duties, and besides this
they are put through a thorough course of
training by a surgeon, so that they may
Know what to do to aid the Injured.
After mastering all necessary prelimin
aries they are assigned to "easy" routes
like those in the Thirty-fifth precinct, where
the novices may have plenty of walking,
lots of fresh air, no elevated trains and few
However, for the regnlnr patrolman, the
"tenderfoot" as well as the veteran, the
same hours prevail. The following extract
from the rules plainly Indicates that an
officer is not a person of much leisure:
The police day commences at 6 a, m. The
patrol force in each precinct is divided into
two platoons. Each platoon is divided into
two sections. It takes ninety-six honrs to
complete a round of tours. The schedule
gives thirty-six hours patrol, twenty-eight
hours reserve, thirty-two hours home to
each man. Much extra duty is performed in
"reserve" hours; time also given for meals
out of "reserve" hours. "Iloine" hours
are often broken by attendance at ourt;
also by emergencies, as strikes, riots, mass
meetings, large processions, fires, etc "Re
serve" means readiness for active service
other than patrol, as well as rest.
The schedule is so arranged that from 6
to Sam. each day only one-fourth of the
force are on active duty, the other three
fourths being at their homes. From 6 to
13 at night, on the other hand, half the men
are patrolling beats, the other half being
held in reserve at the various station
There are in New York thirty-five pre
cincts and one sub-precinct. The smallest
of these is the Thirty-fifth, located north of
the Harlem river, where fifty-three men
comprise the force. The largest is the
Nineteenth, or "tenderloin," with a total
roster of 133. The Nineteenth is called the
"tenderloin" district because within its
limits are included the fashionable streets
where the wealthy people of the city re
- THE TOMBS.
Besides the main duty of patrolling the
lijgt city from end to end the police have
tho additional task of protecting life and
property along the water front. Two de
tails attend to this important part of the
service the harbor squad, consisting of
ninety-nine men, and the steamboat patrol,
' comprising thirty-five. Then there is the
day mounted squad, which is expected to
preserve order on the drives outside the
parks, and the precinct horsemen, who are
kept in readiness to meet any emergency
demanding a combination of speed and
pluck. Tho patrol system obtains in the
outlying districts. The ambulance service
la not a portion of, but an adjunct to, the
work of tho department. It is under the
control of the various hospitals.
These, when required, can turn out the
following number of wagons prepared for
the reception of the injured and accom
panied by trained surgeons: Bcllevue, B;
St Vincent's, 2; Harlem, 2; New York, 2;
Chambers Street, 4; Gouverneur, 1; Man
hattan, 2; Presbyterian, 2; ' Koottevolt, 8;
Ninety-ninth Street, 2. -..,.
As stated above, the metropolitan police
include all told 3,437 men. During the year
1889 they mnde KJ,800 arrests. Of the per
sons arrested 21,184 were charged with In
toxication and lfl.810 with being disorderly.
An additional number of 8,050 had com
plaints for both of these misdemeanors
' brought up against them. One hundred
and thirteen persons were locked up on ao-1
cusations ofjnurder, and .were joined in
duress "by TiSfl 'burglars. "Between casual
hilarity and midnight assassination a range
is found on the statistics at headquarters
Of 193 other offenses for which men, wo
ben and children were detained during the
Of course, there must be a master of this
huge machine, a man of experience and
executive ability, to guide, control, punish
and reward. To a certain degree, he is a
subordinate of others, but in a larger meas
ure he is an able autocrat. His name is
William Murray, and his title is superin
tendent of police.
There are at least three reasons why Mr.
Murray is a proper man for the place he
has so efficiently filled during the last five
years. To begin with, he was born in the
city and knows his New York like a book.
Again, he has made his way up from the
ran ks to the post of commander, and, fi nally ,
he is a veteran of the war. Here in brief is
his record: Born, 1S44; member Ellsworth
Bouavea, 1861-3; patrolman, 18C3; sergeant,
1870; captain, 1876; inspector, 1877; superin
tendent, 1883. Not a bad showing a soldier
at 17, chief of the metropolitan police at 41.
Of course, during nearly twenty-five years
of public service Mr. Murray has had many
of those exciting experiences that fall to
the lot of the officer bent on doing his duty.
To recount them all would require a book.
to give the -details of two or three would
take columns, so they must bo passed by
with the brief mention that, as a testimo
nial of regard for his able work in safe
guarding their property, the jewelers of
Gotham nftor securing permission from
his superiors presented Mr. Murray on
Jan. 25, 1878, with a watch valued at $1,000.
The police of New York are always on
guard, and as a body they are thoroughly
efficient. Of course it would be impossible
to gather together nearly 3,500 men among
whom no rascals were included. Occasion
ally an officer is found to be a sneak or a
scoundrel, but underneath the slight scum
of evanescent refuse always flows the strong
and steady stream of courage, intelligence
liecause this is the case a New York
criminal generally makes progress unex
celled in any other city. He commits an
overt act one honr, the next he is before a
police magistrate, and the third his blue
coated guardian is consigning him to the
care of the "screwman" at the Tombs.

PERAZZO'S TWO HIRED MEN.
They Illn't Kill His Enemy and Caused
Him to Ue Arrested.
Dominic Perszzo, of San Francisco, is
now quite sure that Sicilian methods of re
venge are not regarded with favor in
America. For some time Pcrazzo was un
successfully engaged in conducting law
suits against Guiseppe Gianelli. As he
couldn t best Gia
nelli in the courts
he thought to fret
him out of the way
by the aid of hired
assassins. He en
gaged two men to
do the business,

gave them mouey
and sent them on
errand. They rc
turned with a
bloody coat and
sonic of Giant-Hi's effects. Perazzo was de
lighted, but his joy lasted only a short
time, for his supposed tools, one of whom
turned out to lie a reporter, handed him
over to the police, and Gianelli appeared in
court as prosecuting witness.

A Strange Incitement to Murder.
That the members of the Congregational
society at Stratford, Conn., are not dwell
ing in harmony would seem to be indicated
by the fact that this notice was found tacked
on the door of the church the other morn
ing: "The church will pay $100 for the
corjscs of Samuel T. Houghton and Thomas
Fairclnld." As the persons named are dea
cons of the society the appearance of this
notice created a sensation. The church
members, it apiiears, are divided over a
debt paying proposition.
A Friend of the White Man.

in his day, but at present few people recol

Canada's northwestern possessions might
have proven successful, at least for a time.

him a gold medal.

contents are nicely distributed and classi-

"Some Technical Information;" Pinan

cities, and the fae'lities afforded by each
