Suirircsts Devine. i The vision f n military police, fohooloil like West Pointers, Innded In discipline and loyalty ami managed by an unfettered .. 1,000 Commissioner nf tho typo of Oil. (tncthals, the canal tiullder, appointed for life by tin- Mayor nnd the Ilorotigh Presidents, was set lcfore the Wanner committee yesterday by Thomns ( Wood, foreman of the pxtraonllnnry (Irand .lury which for prvcral months lias hiMrd Kraft evi dence anil pounded out Indictments. In Mr. Wood's opinion, continued by his (iranil Jury experience, civil admin istration of thi police has broken down utterly. i "If we want an etllclent political or ganization we've got It." he said. " Hut If we want one efficient In enforc ing the law and suppressing crime e'vo pit m rip the charter open from top to bottom." Another witness. President Mltchel of the Hoard of Aldermen, advocated ap plying the principle of the recall to the Mayor, Comptroller and Alderinanle l'resident as the only rtiiicd needed In addition to firm ndmtnistrntive con trol To fir Kdwnrd T. DcvInc secretary of the Charity ( itganli'.atlon Societ, the great need was n uniformed chiet grad unted from the ranks "somewhat such a man as Iover, with all hi faults." Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt sent Sen ator Wagner a letter in which she agreed with Mls Lillian Wald that plain clothes men could not de.il satis factorily with the social evil, ami that i it might be well to try w men, as suggested by Miss men police- Wald. Mrs anderbllt had been invited to ti t ify . : She could not. because -he Is salliliK for , Kuropu to-duy. Mr. WihmI. whose testimony was I about ns meaty as any the committee from Albany has heard, explained that as he hail been a naval officer he uatur- I ally l'llced In military organization. He recalled thai in llermany a man' must have been a soldier nine ears to b a policeman. In- -aid that N'ew i York is the nation, il cie-uing house tor , crime, crowded with itnmlglnnts n- I spnnsive only to the uroni; aim "The existing chartei. he went on. "puts the observame of the law. the1 command of li.uuu men. in the hands t of a civil appointee nf the Maor wli emerging from Ins bu-iness or pro- ' fesslnn. is suddenly called upon to dls- I play the qualities of a commander of i an army. He must be a Komi disci- i pllnarlan. an efficient organizer, a wise I magistrate and practically the president of a large insurance compun), for lie. handles the police pension fund." The Ilroadway observer watching ' the traffic squad may think there isn't much the matter with the police. Mr. Wood said, but let the same citizen "wander over the less populous dis tricts, let him serve on a jury, suffer a robbery In his home and appeal to the police for help, or follow the ills closures now being made and he will be convinced that the entire organization hhould be placed on a radically different basis. We must Bet down vo the root of the matter b redrafting the charter. Au thority should be absolute and Jlldg ment beyond revision. ' Mr. Wood said he never saw Col. Hoethals. but to his mind he was the type of man needed for 'ommlssioner. The Hge of letllement should bo lifi. Dismissal should only be on charges made to the (iovetnor by a dtli-eiis committee with ttlal before the ap pointing board. "Ah to salar. Mr Woods continued "it Hhould be such as to make th olllce attractive to trained men of the highest proved ability. What does the dtv of New York care for a J.,000 sularv '.' It can afford to pay It If it nets the tight return. It has no bearing on the situa tion at all. "Not until the police have at their head a man, a permanent superior whom they both respect anr fear. Incor ruptible, and above roproai'h, whoso dismissal Is II mil and without appeal nnd whose commendation is a m.eu Hdered the proportion of men who them valucd reward, their ow n stand irds selves had been under arrest was too will never be high nnd there will never be developed that strict discipline .mil' tespect 'and espr.t de corps which Is , necessary for sueccss." II.. o,...l .Un, II CrtmmlU,, .,. ,t ...-,. - , " from outside the Mayor's suggest nro unnecessary Such olllces should be stimulating rewards for conspicuous polico service. Kx-Mayor McCiell.m -siigesllnn for a pollen school seemed to Mr. Wood one of the most practical that has been heard, although f'ommls Hloner Waldo terms It "fanciful." "Something liner than hrutn courage Is requisite to perform polico iliim under thteats ami temptation," he said, "and this (piaUty can best bo developed Jp.der u long sAstctn ot observation and Instruction. There Is nothing like mllltnr ill ill to ilevelon honor and r.hro1nesM n I ..um, i.. .oneebe .. great Itislltuilon in tho heart of tbe ComitKmwe.ilih, supported by tlie Stiiie, raivlug voung men from nil Its parts by the appointment of Senators and Assetulih man for it three years course for the upbuilding of character and ttalnlng In i lie branches of knowledge tiecessarj to the intelligent performance of a policeman's duty. The details am Yiot dllllculi, nor need hn cost to the Statu bo burdensome, allien the cities Would contribute pro rain as they ) cetve Us beuillts This Is not a fanciful picture. I belli in ft Is going to coma to this city as sure us fate." Abolish the pension system, wild Mr, Wood, becuuse it in an enormous x- petise. giving the city nothing In return, For II substltllle a police reserve, to which men could retire at reduced pay and Hllll be leady for emergency calls. Prohibit membership In any associa tion; Insist on undivided loyalty to the Commissioner and the force. Reorgan ize the detective, bureau. Put at Its head an eminent detective at a high salary, subject only to the Commis sioner. "The development of a special corps In the bureau for handling vice Is it logical outcome of the present Investi gations," Mr. Wood said. "Pretence that these evils do not exist Is a farcn which should be ended and they should be dealt with frankly nnd openly for physical as well ns moral tcasons. Dis orderly houses should In- eonti oiled by licenses to the Individual occupants." For the present police ttlal system Mr. Wood would subMltute summary courts composed of police olllcers for small delinquencies, and general courts of higher olllcers for serious offences. He would abolish penalties of loss of pay and limit punishment to transfer, extra duly, deprivation of rank, loss of number, suspension or dismissal, all without recourse, lie thus summarized Ills points: "First, purify nnd control the stream of Immigrants; deposit them not In New Yotl:, already congested, but place them where their labor Is needed, op portunities nre greater ami Inlluences will conduce to better citizenship. "Second, give N'ew York a simple charter, workable, practical In its police provisions and under which a strong nml capable man can accent the olllce of Police Commissioner with an ussur- unce that he can devote his life ami ! effort to the upbuilding of a lasting i reputation free from political Inlluetiee. "Third, train the police nnd educate I I them for the work upon which depends! ithe security', peace ana comfort of the cltlzens." j Senator Wagner tola Mr. Wood his' .recital had been "very Interesting and' i instructive." whereupon the OolT (Irand ' j.lury foreman observed "f do not want , I you to pet the idea 1 am a model man,' hut I do think that the basis of etll elency In anything Is discipline " John Purroy Mitchell, the tlrst wit ness yesterdiiN. said tnnt In passing a ''aw- providing for the recall of the three' general city oillclals hp would so safe-! Igunrd It as not to make It a continual source of embarrassment. , ne of Mr. Mltchel's suggestions for reorganization was tnat the license j power of the police tie transferred to the Mayor's bureau of licenses. "When 1 was acting Mayor" he said. ("I found at Coney Island ami i New here the most degrading concert halls and j other ilons operating under licenses; granted by the Police T'ep.irtment As 'a result nf our Investigation many licenses were rex okod, onl to be granted later" i He said also that he li.nl cl no re-j suits from citizens' complaints when In vestigated by tin1 poller, nut that when (the Investigation was made 'by the Com-. 'inNsloner of Accoun-s staff seven- ) eighths of them were found to be bona ' tide.
