Lnree .Amount of Terrl(or the
Men Arc Snppoaetl to I'atrol A
Life Tenure of Office I'mored.
The inability of the police force to prop
erly protect the people of the District, and
the hardships that are imposed upon the
present force by their lack' of numbers, will
be brought to the attention of Congress this
Session by Major Sylvester, who hopes to
secure a much-needed increase in the num
ber of men in his department.
One of the things which -is said to make
the force as efficient as it is is the fact
that the men arc not bound- by political
promises, and their office Is theirs for lite,
if they behave themselv es properly and at
tend to their duties. The present tenure
of office of the men was fixed by act of
Congress approved in August, 1S61, when
the force was first organized, whereby the
policemen were assured of their positions
so long as they faithfully executed nil the
I rules and regulations made by their su
It has been decided since then that this
law Is Inoperative, and, that the members
of the force were subject to appointment
and dismissal the same as other Govern
ment employes. Major Sylvester will strive
this year to have the law of 1S61 re-enacted
or obtain a new one equally as good.
While the law may be inoperative, and It
may not apply to the Police Department,
it is well known that the men do hold the
their offices as long as they perform falth-
Ifui service, and arc not. removed at the
caprice of a politician. It is the desire of
the heads of the department to have the
positions assured the men by an act of Con
gress, and, as stated, efforts will be made
la that direction this session.
The great amount of territory the police
are compelled to patrol, it Is said, is watch
ed only by an averago of 175 men at all
times. The Inability of the police to fur
nish adequate protection to the citizens
living In this section Is obvious, and Is one
of th subjects on which Maior Sylvester
will ?peak before the District Committees
of t two houres of Congress.

In the prosecution of jTcasehlch detains
him until afternoon, when he reports its
disposition, gets his dinner, and patrols
the streets from G o'clock p. m. until mid
night. ' On the 30th of last June the force In
the District of Columbia comprised 00
privates. Deduct from that number 1C3
derailed, on post duty, on ltavc, and sick,
and there remained 337 men for patrol or
street service. One-half of these, or 16S
privates, were on duty, from C o'clock until
1J o'clock p. ra , and the same number
frcm 12 o'clock p m until G o'clock a. 111.
During the day, from G o'clock a. m. until
1 o'cloik p, m . and from that hour until
; o'clock p. m , but one-fourth of the whole
nere patrolling the beats.
"Thus It will be observed that In the
District of Columbia, tho fourth largest po
lice area in the United States, about two
patrolmen to the square mile, or one pa
trolmen to 1.CV1 people, performed street
duty on the last night In June of tue fis
cal year ISM. The same, rule held good
throughout every night of the preceding
year. To cover many of the beats the pri
vate had to walk about sixty squares.
"The police day begins at S o'clock a.
m , when a member of the force will start
out and patrol his beat until 1 p. m , when
he reports 'off' at: tBcrstatlon. and re
mains In the station 'on reserve until G
o'clock p. m, whe'aihif'g relieved from
all duty until 12 o'clock midnight. Then
he goes 'on' until G o'clock a m , when
his 'day off begins and ccntinunes until
C o'clock p. m , when hit resumes duty
until midnight, at that hour going 'on re
serve' until 1 o'clock the following day,
when he goes 'on' until G o'clock p. m ,
returns for reserve duty, to conclude by
performing street duty from 12 o'clock
midnight until G o'clock in the morning.
"That member, under the regulations
governing his conduct, is required to bo
respectful, cleanly in appearance and dress.
prompt, and firm; to constantly patrol his
beat, be able to give intelligent responses
to all enquiries, pay his just debts; to be
honest and sober, prevent crime, arrest of
fenders, keep a memorandum of suspicious
houses and persons, and of all matters of
rolice Interest; to arbitrate complaints
concerning crowing roosters and barking
dogs; be kind to individuals incapable of
caring for themselves, attend Inquests; re
port accidents, attempts at suicide, ani
mals estray, abandoned Infants, dead In
fants, dead bodies found, drownings, dead
animals, dangerous and broken pavements,
roadways, buildings and bridges, doors
and windows found open, damaged trees
and boxes, fires, fire plugs damaged, filthy
streets, alleys, and gutters, persons found
sick, damaged hydrants, lamps not lighted
or damaged, pumps out of order, permits
examined, sewers damaged, filthy sewers,
suicides, water mains and pipes damaged,
and other matters too numerous to men
tion. "In this wise the whole force operates
day after day and night after nlgbt. In
some localities it Is dangerous for a pri
vate to perform his duty alone, and in the
night time lis beat is doub'ed that Is,
two men patrol it. Insufficient force pre
vents this course being followed on many
beats where it Is desirable to do so.
"Pennsylvania Avenue. Connecticut Ave
nue, and r Street should be straight beats,
with a squad of patrolmen constantly look
ing after the many matters of public im
portance thereon and thereabouts. The
foreign legations, where distinguished rep
resentatives from other countries reside
should have attention from privates con
fined to short beats, the various circles
should be looked after by details, and sue
clal attention given to riding and driving
as the law directs, and hack stands and
disorderly localities should be inspected
continuously; but until Congress abandons
the idea that the Capital Is not in need OT

necessary precautions will not be pos
sessed. ' The bicycle has proved a valuable ac

On the recommendation of Commissioner
Wight, the Commmissloners hive directed
that the Chairman of the Senate Commit

erection of a municipal hospital and urge

The proposed bill Is almost ldntical
with the one which was Introduced In the
Senate at the last session. In his recom

that the need for such an institution was
more apparent at the present time than
when the first measure was Introduced.
Tho bill provides for the sale of the present
