Results achieved In the capture of
criminals, recovery of stolen goods,
clearing up of murder cases, arrest of
holdups and swindlers and breaking up
of organized gangs of crooks in Port
land is shown in a report submitted
yesterday by Chief of Police Clark to
Mayor Albee outlining in detail the
work of the police department for the
period from July 1, 1913. to May 1, 1914.
It Is shown that during this period
there were 18,919 arrests as compared
with 13,454 for the corresponding pe
riod of the year before. Of the arrests
1201 were for felonies, 60 were for
burglary, 167 for swindling, 12 for hold
ups, 10 for murder and the remainder
for various minor offenses. During the
period there were 204 burglary cases
reported of which 157 were satisfac
torily cleared up by arrests or recovery
of the stolen goods. The estimated
value of the goods recovered was 314,
410. There- were' 13 murder cases re
ported of which 10 were cleared up by
arrests of the murderers. In three cases
suicide followed the murders.
Mayor Praises Police Chief.
Mayo - Albee attributes the showing
of the police and detective departments
to the work of Chief Clark, who has
been in charge of the police service
since July 1, last year. In addition to
having made actual arrests and cleared
up mysteries, the Mayor says the Chief
personally, and his men have broken
up many organized bands of crooks,
have driven hundreds of crooks out of
the city and have done a great deal
of work in keeping order during
strikes and festivities.
In his report Chief Clark says the
detective branch of the service is the
equal of any In the country for a city
of the same size, and the superior of
many. "The most modern methods
are used in the work," says Chief
Clark in his report, "and the offices
are equipped with the latest devices
and systems.
"The members of the detective bu
reau are all men of wide experience
in .criminal investigation and under
the most capable and intelligent su
pervision nave cleared up an unusually
large percentage' of the most serious
crimes and broken up many of the
worst gangs of organized crooks on
the Pacific Coast.
Worlc for AVomen Lauded.
"The Bureau for the Protection of
Women, with Mrs. Lola G. Baldwin
in charge, is a valuable asset to the
department, 'The work of this dlvl
lon primarily is protective and pre
ventive, and an Important factor in the
handling of first offenders in the Mu
nicipal Court."
The department comprises 301 per
sons, of which 23 are serving In the
capacity of elevatormen, engineers,
janitors and sfeike positions having no
real connection with police work. The
average payroll of the department is
$29,600 a month. The budget appro
priation for the department for 1914
Including salaries is 3436,696.
Chief Clark says he has been par
ticularly pleased with the showing
made iirythe handling of murder cases.
"Since July 1, 1913." he says, "there
nave been 13 murder cases, 13 of
which have been cleared up success'
fully, several convictions being ob

tained ranging from a few years im
prisonment to hanging, and in a few
cases the defendants, after trial, have
been discharged, through mitigating
circumstances attending the crime. As
murder is one of the most serious
crimes we have to contend with, we
take great pride in the above showing,
as it is -indeed a good one."
