The cabinet memDers also were con? sulted about the awards given to police? men for extraordinary performance of duty and the penalizing of policemen after they had been tried by a deputy commissioner. They were also part o? the merit system used to check up the ,-.\ Ol'k of detectives. ? When there was the threat of an epidemic of crime the cabinet was ??ailed into conference with the Com? missioner. When plans to meet the situ? ation were worked out extra men and ixperts from other squads would be sent to study the situation and correct it. In r.e case before the cure was elfected. Woods had made three changes in the :ommand ?if one of the branch detective ureaus and had twice shaken up the taff of detectives attached to the bureau. I abinet meetings have been ?lone away with under the present admin? istration. The only conferences known t i he held at headquarters now ?are thosi between Enright and I.ahey. The first intimation thai the inspectors have now of a change in rules or a new plan ?< when they receive the fermai order through police channels. Worried by Crime Wave It is true, it was Pointed! out yes? terday, that frequently an individua! inspector ,v' calle?! to headquarters by I.ahey for ;. conference and on two or three occasions since Enright became Commissioner the entire staff of in? spectors has been summoned to ap? roar. But there is no such thing as :\ weekly conference^ Once when the full board had as? sembled, however, it was soon found that it was not for a conference. The ?rime wave was worrying the officials at headquarters, and both Enright and bahey made i- clear that a wholesale transfer of inspectors or reduction in ran!; would follow continued fai.ure to tern the tide. There was no request by the Com? missioner or I.ahey for constructive suggestions. The inspectors were not made to feel they were part of the administrative staff at headquarters. They were simply told the situation was up to them and they had to find some way out. An illustra'ion of the frame of mini! :: which these "conferences" left the inspectors is found in the comment made by one of them in telling of the incident : "What do Knright and I.ahey want us to do? Why doesn't the Commissioner have I.ahey tell us where the chief tiouble is and give us enough men to get at it'? 1 haven't trot a man on my staff who knows anything but petty larceny cro?)!;s, anil he doesn't know them well." (>n Monday afternoon ?11 police cap? tains in the greater city were sum? moned to the office of the inspector in ehargq of the district in which they ?veie assigned. The Tribune story published Monday showing the result f the survey on the number of men on patrol aft?er midnight was read by the inspectors to the captains. Thereupon each in? spector told his captain that Tribune reporters were flying about town in . automobiles and to b; sure that the full quota was turned out for patrol on the midnight tour, even if the lieu : tenant on the desk was forced to sacri? fice his clerical man. The Tribune survey end?1?! last Sat? urday night. The World Comments On The Tribune Expose The World comments editorially on The Tribune's turvey of the Police De? partment as follows: "The World has often bail occasion 'o disclose the appalling number and de? plore the still growing frequency of grave crimes m New York City. The Tribune yesterday began an intensive study of'the subject, which the aid facts inexorably compel it to head ; 'Crime Wave Growing.' ; ^ "lt.; valuable first article attribute? the shocking conditions in nan to lack of m.'iij. in the hours tifter midnight important patrol posts have commonly to be doubled, Hut .here is also op? erative to disaster, as The World has urged, "the break-down of the detective organization built up by Arthur Woods,' with other administrative faults. "1 he truth, about robberies is not known, since the police practice con? cealment. But in 330 days 325 serious hold-ups and robberies were made- pub? lic. The loss, but a fract on of a true total, was ?3,100,000, and the November total of $890,000, whil- still incomplete, passed the previous records. "It i tin- oasy-go:ng American way to palliate crime ice .rds as due to the foreign born. The libel explains noth ing. In the lands from which our ?m migrants^cornc few cit.'es have so high a crime rate as .'sew York. All Eng? land and Wales hav? fewer murders. The reason is plain. The way to stop murdering is to arrest, convict and punish the murderers, and that is what Xew York does not do." "Figures presented in this morning's Tribune bear out The Evening World's repented charger, that crime is increas? ing in New York and that the police ave showing themselves l?-ss and less able to cop?- with it. "Three hundred and twenty-five hold? ups, burglaries and thefts, representing a property loss of more than $3,100, C00; one hundred unsolved murders, and a homicide record that averages : one killing every three ?lays, is The , Tribune's summary of crime in the greater city .-.nee the beginning of the present year. "The theory of the Enright police ad? ministration, backed by Mayor Hylan, has been that publication of the facts of crime encourages criminals. Acting ; or. this theory, the Enright administra? tion has, wherever possible, withheld the new" of crimes from the news j papers a nil the public." ?No Crime Wave* F olive Efficient. Leach Asserts Acting Commissioner Intimates Fear That Reports J? ill Cause Influx of Criminals to Y. Y. No one at Police Headquarters would talk to Tribune reporters yes? terday. The Brooklyn Da'ily Kagle, however, did succeed in getting an interview with Acting Commissioner Leach, and Mayor Hylan, after smil? ing, refused to comment on the situa? tion as disclosed by The Tribune. The Eagle story follows: "'The criminal situation in the City of New York is not abnormal, not? withstanding til1 extraordinary after war conditions throughout the world. We are hoping that the spectacular activities in other cities, coupler! with the newspaper notoriety in New York will not result in bringing the crim? inal element here; but if so the con? dition will be met and the situation handled in the regular decisive man? ner that has characterized the Police I Department of New York for mag? yars.' "The above statement was made to an Kagle reporter this .afternoon by Acting Police Commissioner Leach when he was asked if he ha?! any reply to make as the temporary head of the pouce force 'o criticisms of the department and to tl e stories printed d-.ily concerning hold-ups, burglaries and other crimes against persons and ' ptoperty occurring in tin- city just now. The Commissioner denied that there was, any serious outbreak of ?rime, an 1 l..uche,l at the reported I 'crime wave.' Ho also declare?! that Mho force was working efficiently for I the publie, and ?ntii nted that some I 'f the articles pu' lished in the news ; papers were not true, but he did not ? specify instanc s. "It is a fact though, it was infli cated, that in the absence of Commis? sioner Enright unusual measures are being taken to insure honest work on the part of the detective bureau and ?he ?an on post. Acting Commis? sioner Leach admitted that the chief inspector was making nightly tours through the town, 'after the manner employed from time to time by The ; Eagle,' as he- put it. to watch the work of the men on post. "'It is not. unlikely, when Commis? sioner Enright returns,' said the Act? ing Commissioner, 'that the deputies will also make nightly trips to insure I the best patrol service possible. " 'These 'ours are not heralded,' sai? the Acting Commissioner, "out tht men are being watched very closely Diagrams of the various posts an carried and the night tours esneoialh are under surveillance. We ar< anxious to have the mer. do theii work.' "It is know that the chief inspecto paid a visit to Flatbush last night an? early this morning, but trie official i at Headquarters this afternoon de clined to discuss the matter and wouh i not admit that the territory name, I was under scrutiny." <H Lined 3Ta?> Gloves Eh Pd For Men f] y? and i?Ss?

Eiiright Scored As Inefficient By Aldermen Suggestion Made at Board Meeting That Investiga? tion of Department hy the Legislature Is .Needed Tammany to the Defense Penal Code Change Asked to Make Theft With Gun a Life Term Offense The Hoard of Aldermen took notice o* the city's crime wave and the in? efficiency of the Police Department under tiie present administration at tin- regular meeting of the board yes? terday at the City Hall. In the course of a heated discussion of a request by the Police Commissioner for $75,1 10 in special revenue bonds to replenish the contingent fund of the Police De partment, depleted during the Brooklyn Rapid Transit strike last summer. Commissioner Enright vas attacked as inefficient and the suggestion was made that an investigation of the depart? ment by the Legislature was needed. Alderman Charles II. Roberts, of Manhattan, introduced a resolution, based upon the increasing number of robberies and hold-ups in the city, ! calling upon the Legislature to amend i the Penal Code to make the commis? sion of robbery with the use of a | revolver pu-nishable by life imprison in mt. Acts to Curb ("rime Wave The Roberts resolution read: "Whereas, There have been recorded in the City of New York of late an ever increasing number of robberies and hold-ups: and "Whereas, The professional criminals involved have been able, after serving part of the punishment meted out, to bring about tiu-ir parole; therefor-' "Re it. resolved. That the Hoard of Aldermen of the City of New York call upon t.he State Legislature to amend the I'cna! Code to make acts of robbery ! committed with a gun punishable with life imprisonment, and so amend the law dealing with the parole of crimi? nals ;.-; to make men who use dreams i i the perpetration of crimes ineligible to parole." Consideration of the resolution was put over until the meeting next week. When the'Police Commissioner's re? quest for $75,000 came before the board the Socialist members strongly object? ed and were joined in their position by several of the Republican members. Enright Is Assailed Alderman Robert Starr Ailyn de? clared the present Police Commission? er had shown the greatest inefficiency in the history of the department in the management of its affairs. Alder? man Clifford S. Rostwick and other Republican members substantially agreed with Alderman Allyn and ob? jected to granting the request of the Police Commissioner, on the ground that he had made no itemized report as to the us' of ?.:?. money. They said it was the usual, our wron?, method of the Police Commissioner i. >t to fur? nish information m regard to such matters. Several of the Tammany Aldermen sprang to the defense of the resolu? tion and the city admin ist ration. Alder? man C. 11. Haubert, of Brooklyn, laid stress on the fact that it was the duty of the Police Department to protect innocent passengers and railroad prop? erty during a strike, and that the emergency during the Brooklyn strike had to be nut and paid for. He de? clared that any of the Republican Aldermen could visit Police Headquar? ters and probably obtain ail the in? formation they desired. "1 have always understood that no one could go to Police Headquarters and get r.ny kind of information," sai,i Alderman William F. Quinn. "I would like to ask Alderman Haubert if he could do it." "There may be something in a name," said Alderman Haubert, "but 1 am sure I could get anything there, provided my name was not Quinn." "Then I take it," said Alderman Quinn. "that a chosen few who have the right* names are the only ones who can ?jet any information at Police Headquarters.'' Alderman Will.am T. Collins, ma? jority leader of the board, shut u'.r the debate by requesting a roll call on the resolution. It was adopted by fifty five affirmative vote . the exact num? ber required to pass a resolution re? quiring an appropria:.un of money.
