Some Plain Itomnrka About Tho C n
dltlon of tho Wnshingtnn Pollen De
partmentEvils of tho Old Soldier
and Sailor I,nw.
Mnj. Mooro was not at his ofllco when a
Heii.vi.u reporter dropped in the otlu-r day,
but -Chief Clerk Sylvester was there. Mr.
Sylvester is one of the most hard-worked
slaves of tho public, but he found timo to an
swer a few questions, and ho answered them
with a directness and emphasis that showed
ho know what ho was talking about and had
thought it over. "Of course, Mnj. Mooro
didn't get all tho officers and privates ho
asked for in his estimates this year. Ho didn't
get what ho asked for by at least two-thirds,aud
yet I know that In making up estimates ho cut
down things to tho last notch in order to givo
no room for carping. What ho estimated for
was absolutely necessary for tho nroner car
rying on of the Police Department. Out of
our smnll force wo have now forty-flvo men on
the sick list and thirty on special detail duty.
That is enough in itself to cripple tho forco
under ordinary circumstances.
"But I want to speak about a little matter
personal to myself. 1 am chief clcik, property
clerk, and general utility man, and have only
a singlo clerk to assist me. Ten or twelve
years ago there wero six or eight clerks em
ployed in tho hcadquartcis office aud there was
some division of labor. Hero when I get so
pressed that I must have assistance they send
mo two or thrco (superannuated policemen,
who because of their inexperience in clerical
work and their ignoranco of accounting are
more of a hindrance than a help. Moreover,
I have been saddled with all tho executive and
financial responsibility paying the force, con
tracting for aud buying their clothes, and so
on and I tell you 1 have often worked here at
my desk until midnight to keep matters up.
You can see, then, whether Maj. Moore got
tho increase in tho force of his office asked for
July 1, 1690."
"Don't you get the combined salaries of the
old chief clerk and property clerk ?"
"No, sir! I wish I did. That might be some
compensation for the infernal worry and wear
and tear that I have to underco."
"But about the street patrol forco ?"
"Well, in tho first place at least GO per cent,
has been added to tho duties of the policemen
within ten years. They aro made general
utility men. They servo special tax notices.
They used to serve water tax notices also.
They servo subpoenas for the police court, and,
iu fact, they aro called upon to distri
bute alms and to do everything that
properly belongs to other departments
of the District Government. The beats
are necessarily so long on account of tho
small force in this city that no policeman can
cover them properly. Henco ariso most of
the complaints 'that no policeman could be
found.' When a man has to cover eight or
ten squares he can't be evervwhere at once.
"But here is the worst "thing that Maj.
Mooro has to deal with the soldier and 6ailor
law relative to police appointments. These
men know nothing after their five years' scr
vicu in tho Regulars but obedience to orders.
They haven't an idea of their personal re
sponsibility and the use of their discretion in
making arrests of citizens, and, as a conse
quence, there have been many flagrant viola
tions of the rights of citizens by such police
men, who have brought discredit upon the
department. A policeman ought to be a
semi-judicial officer and use a wide discretion in
making arrests, but it would be impossible to
beat such an idea into the heads of these
soldier and sailor policemen who, under the
law, have been foisted on the force. I think
if we could only get lidof that law regula
ting appointments we could get along much
more smoothly even with our inadequate resources."
The Patent-Leather Shoe.
It is only w.lthin the last year or 60 that tho
patent-leather shoo has been used to any great
extent for overy-day wear. But it has grown
mightily in popular favor, and Is to day con
sidered by well-dressed people as almost in
dispensable. Aside from tho neat, finished
appearance which it lends to tho well-dressed
person, they aro very durable, and aro mado
in a great variety of styles. There is no doubt
that they will bo "tho shoo" for the coming
season, and In anticipation of tho great de
mand Messrs. Wilson &, Carr, of 929 F street
northwest, have prepared for your Inspection
the handsomest and most varied assortment
in this lino of footwear over shown in Wash
ington. Tho patent-leather shoo is 6omewhat
risky at best, but its wearing qualities depend
in a great measure upon tho caro taken of
them. Messrs. Wilson & Carr feel 6afo in as
serting that their grade of $5 patent-leather
shoes is not surpassed anywhere for tho price,
and tho $7.50 and $10 grades can be relied
upon as being tho best obtainable. Special
attention is called to the6o patent-leather
good6, but they aro prepared to show you a
complete stock in other lines of footwear, and
would be glad to have tho opportunity of do
