daring their summary dismissal from the department It Is not in the opinion qf Prosecuting Attorney Leach of character that - can be successfully introduced before - a - criminal sort Such evidence as was gathered against Sergeant Clark Patrolmen Andrews Stsnl and Hamerton has been turned over to the prosecuting attorney but be has practically nOtl Bed the Police Commission and Chief Hodgklns that unless further evidence can bt secured that it would be use less to issue the complaints It would appear that the evidence which was secured against the men was not in a ejr - Se complete but It was sufficient to wring confessions as to misdoings from sail and that Awoof the accused men dld reduce their statements to writing and signed them These statements or confessions were secured from the hieri and their resignations written with the expectation that they would be accepted and that the scandal which has since broken out would be averted This in Itself 4s sufficient to prevent the con -

cjire Jthe mUch - desired evidence Prosecuting Attorney Leach In discussing the case to - day said I am ready to prosecute any or all ofthe accused policemen against Whom sufficient evidence can be secured to warrant the issuance of ta complaint i Regarding these eases however there are several peculiar conditions which make prosecution practically Impossible with - the evidence now before me These men were policemen iand as such had thd confidence of the people and their presence in or - about stores at any time of day or night would nbti and apparently aid not attract the attention of any one and on this account the uepartment lacks evidence as to the peculations outside Tthe statements made by the accused mn7 In themselves the statements or tconfesslons are hot sufficient to warrant the issuance of complaints nor would they bring about a convlc - tIoft it the complaints were Issued The statements - which were made by theserrrien with reference to - their 111 doingsi were obtained from them by the LCbief sdurlng his Investigations as to their conduct as police officers nd with a view to ridding the departr lnht of them Jh Tease their admissions vwduld warrant It At that time crlml -
