This article from what appears to be an editorial from the Daily State Gazette, takes the Trenton town fathers to task for presiding over a police force which is fraught with inefficiency, inadequacy, and lack of depth. The police officers of that era strenuously objected to the practice of mandating that they light and extinguish the gaslights throughout the city, with the obvious logic that it took them away from their duties to watch for problems on their respective beats.
(Once again, I ask your indulgence on the poor quality of this graphic. The printing press obviously had too much ink on the platen of the
press causing the text to smear.)
