probable that the department will tooa Tall Into

by the .?l""t:'.ii of last fall. I expressed my,
views upon the two rrnasur -s at thi* conferenoe
very fully, and I have no h?Mrttatlon in giving
them to the public.
ron TUB REMOVAL or POLICE justice?.
Kir^t. I am mist d<ectd?edly in favor of the
passasre of the bill known a* th?- Police Magis?
trate bill, which will lemove from ? fT?? ?? a ' the
Police Justif"? f thi* city. Th- Inveetlgatlon
irncli? by the Lexow Committee, although not
going into an Investigation of this department,
Incidentally brought iui evlden ? pnoug-h ? i snow
that no more "'?iiiij.t a .id tyrannical rourts have
tret existed In any civilised country than the
police courts f this city. They have be?
terror, not of the criminal class, but of the p.M.r
cIhss. This crltl? :-??!? is not Intended to applj
to every one of the Pollc? Justlc??*. I i??ii"\?'
some of them I i be pui ? and upright men, and I
would amend the bill so is to give the Mayor
power to reappolnl members of the present
bench If he .-aw lit. Th.s bill ?.i:?-':.: to be passed
at on <?.
N te, a? to the reorganisation of the police
force, There t?a- been very much said ab it a
single-headed control, or a single-headed Corn
Ion, but thus far th-r.- has been n i agree?
ment upon that question among the leadii |
?/?-i- ol Ity, nor In the Committee of
Seventy. I am decidedly opposed to a ~ ? 11 *-; 1 - - -
!.r-a(l?-ii commission, ; : reasons which I think
s ? good. My Idea '.f a pi ?per reorganisation ..f
th?* fore?' is to give tl >- Superintendent or ?'?ii?
of Police, us he may i>. called, the entire power
of controlling th<- force Itiell f appointing cap?
tains to th'-lr ?list:; : . .,,. ! ,f letalllng Hi" m? ?!
in th" force. Thi- power he should have entirely
power a commission may have.
Th?- Superintendent should !.. appointed bj the
Mayor and answerable din -... I him, and
should h,,ld his office by a tenun a? ii:':, as that
of the Sheriff of the count) oi Dlstrlcl Atl
