Excerpt from Report and Proceedings of the Senate Committee Appointed to Investigate the Police Department of the City of New York, Vol. 3: Transmitted to the Legislature January 18, 1895

Mr. Nicoll. - You have not investigated the police courts. You know I meant the police captains whom you have taken evidence against, one of whom sat in this presence when a prostitute testified against him, and you refused to allow him to be heard. Captain Cross, on another occasion, was denied the same right as Captain Stevenson. You propose to now adjourn without giving that official an opportunity to defend himself. You deny it to the inspectors now. You have refused it on the specious ground that it would interfere with the plan of investigation laid out by counsel. Now, I say you deny, and propose to leave this city, denying officers accused, the right which is accorded by every tribunal to the meanest criminal; and that is the position in which you are about to adjourn, leaving the police department in the city of New York.

Chairman Lexow. Do not dispute, Mr. Nicoll, that for 10 years past, these matters have been matters of public notoriety; do you dispute that the police commissioners have known as well as any other citizen in this city that the people at large believe that the police were culpable in the direction named under the resolution, and do you suppose that we can take an accusation of that kind, compelling us to sit during this summer, when for 10 years you have had that Opportunity and have never exercised it?
