03/05/11 157 W - + 5 - 4 Raleigh Mayor's Report, 1910

Our police department is in excellent condition. The efficiency of our Chief of Police is recognized throughout the city, and his associates are rendering him excellent cooperation. I am glad to report that during the year the social evil has been reduced to a minimum in Raleigh; and the so-called "Red Light" district, which was a disgrace and a menace to our civilization, no longer exists, the laws having been rigorously enforced. The sale of intoxicating liquors has been greatly reduced, and slowly but surely the lawbreakers are being made to realize that Raleigh will not tolerate their operations. Regardless of differing views on the drink question, it becomes all law-abiding citizens to support the law and the officers who are called upon to enforce it.

Our fire department, always the pride of the city, was never more efficient.
