Has Handled Every Strike C: In Bridgeport Without : Spilling Drop of Blood A Fine Tribute to An Hon est and EfEicient Public Servant. "Efficiency is a minor consideration and the Republicans are simply payr ing political debts when theyr propose to add a lieutenant -and 15 patrolmen to the police force of Bridgeport," de clared Jasper Mclevy last night. Mr. McLevy was one f a, committee of the North End Improvement- associa tion who appeared at the meeting of . the streets and sidewalks committee of the -Common Council. , He has twic.e been the candidate of i the So cialist party for Mayor of Bridgeport polling larger votes each time. - , Continuing, "he said:,, "I main tain that a man with 40 -years' . ex perience in. the police business is more competent to rxm that department than four men who are only interested in it incidentally, and who depend for their positions on the way the political wind blows. ; ; , V, t ' . "The attitude of the present Repub lican- administration bears out the statement I made while campaigning last. September. ' 1 . i-'"--' .''I said .then that efficiency was a minor consideration . and " nothing drives the truth of that- statement home any ; better than . the fact.- that they are trying to-retire Superinten- tdent Birmingham who is admitted to be one of the most efficient police heads in ; the United States. ' This view is not only held by his own partisans but by; hundreds, of opposite political faiths, and the Socialist party; will do all in its powereven though they da not control a single office -to retain Superintendent Birmingham In his present position. ; " -y . -' "If the superintendent is inefficient and unable to -further fulfill the du ties "of his office why , do they hot produce some - evidence along i that line? f -i Superintendent ' Birmingham entered the : office which" he now holds ' during one of the most stormy- periods in the departments 'history,' and during all the years he has held the office not a single word -has been said that would reflect even In the slightest degree, -"as to his ability to administer the affairs of ' the office. Many, important strikes jhave taken place in Bridgeport during that time and he has handled them all with credit to himself and' the city, ' "Not an ounce of blood has been spilled during- ariV ' of '. "the strike-ii; which' is, indeed, a remarkable fact. During that 'time -he has endeavored to give everybody a square . deal pro -tecting, - at all times, the- constitution al rights and : guarantees of our citi zens and. defy the present mayor or the -.police commission to name a sin gle; other police executive t in the country whq can produce a better rec- ord. ' .' ; .... ' : . ' . . -.- . ' , "The only criticism that I can offer at the present time as "to the police department i is that the police com mission should be -abolished and thd affairs "of ' the; 'police department put under a single head so that the re sponsibility can be placed, absolutely. ! "The present system in- Bridgeport is one that is at all times - amenable to political manipulation and is a det riment to both the principles of effi ciency and good government. .
