practically possible tor one to per

not been appointed and confirmed,
or have not begun the exercise
of their functions sufficiently to
enable the conference now to make
a complete and comprehensive sur

There ure various theories a? to
why this?? phenomena appear to

Sir Basil Thompson
Urges Speedy Trials
to Halt Crime Wave
One of the ?.Tcatt'st agencies for the prevention of crime in
tlie United States is to five speedy trial to the criminal ami
other violators of the law, said Sir Basil Thomson, former
head of the British Seeret Servici? and tin- Criminal Investiga
tion Deportment of Scotland Yard, London, in an interview
at the New Willard lintel last nicht.
Delays caused by grand jury a???
tlon, app< als from court and jury
verdicts, the facilities for the crim
inal to obtain his or her rrltas? on
bonds pending ?curt action in the
United States, nil tend to contribute
as a cause for he widespi -ending of
crime in ibi- rountry, he said.
"In Kngland." said Sir Basil,
"there is no delay in the trial and
the m? ting out of puntelliti? nt ; ?
the criminal. ? man arrested to
night is arraigned before a magis
trate tile following morning. At
the hearing the deprMtions of the
witnesses are taken and Immedi
ately presented to the grand Jury.
Before the day is over a true bill
is return.-d by the grand jury and
the criminal Is tried, convicted?if
guilty, of course?and sentenced.
The criminal has right of one ap
peal. He is not permitttnl to ob
tain his release on bonds pending
ai-tion on the appeal. He is kept
confined in prison. Because of this
we have but few appeals fi. tie
court decisions in? England."
FIRST WOMAN TO DUE.
Referring to the pending exeeu
tion of Mrs. Kdith Thompson, who
was senteti? I to be hanged for the
slaying of her husband, Sir Basil,
said that she will be the first wom
an to die ?in the gallows in Kngland,
as a penalty for a crime, In forty
Asked if he favored capital pun
Ishment, the distinguished detective
declared that it would be dangerous
to abolish it. He feels, he said, that
capital punishment Is a deterrent
against crime nnd referred to places
where it had been abolished only to
he restored again because of an in
crease in homicides.
in proportion to population there
are more violent crimes In (he United
?itates than in Kngland. He said
that in recent years approximately
one out of every tiS.OOO residents of
London have been slain, airainst
ore out of 12.000 in the United States.
Sir Basil's investigation also hss
shown thut contrary to opinions of
some experts, ctlme has not in
creased materially In the United
States because of the world wnr. He
said there was less crime in the
I'nited States today, than before the
Pnited States entered the hostilities,
He said that the crime wave in tier
many is doe to hunger.
Prohibition cannot be enforced to
the letter in Kngland, no nior? than
in the Uniteli States, he said.
"That's why we have not a pro
hibition law in England," declared
Sir Basil. "We don't have any
laws that we cannot enforce. Be
fore any law is enacted In England.
Scotland Yard is asked whether it
can be enforced, if told It cannot,
the law is not cr?Oted.
'However, of all my experience
with criminals, not only as head
of Scotlund Yard, but as chief of
penal Institutions, I have never
found a professional criminal who
drank to excess. To do so would
be disaster to him. It would be
practically suicide an far as any
future operations. No, we have no

"In curhing ?he sale and toting

in the prevention of mutilera and
suicides," said Sir Basil.
APPROVES ItlRKAl IIKKK.
Touching on the proposed national
bureau of identification, to he es
tahlished in Washington by Con
gressional appropriation. Sir Basil
approved the Idea as an Important
move to curl? the operations of
national crooks. lie disapproved,
however, of making the hiirenu an
international agency, saying it
would thus be (oo burdensome lie
cause of the great interchange of
criminal records. The bureau as
proposed will handle fingerprints,
photographs and records of every
thief and other type of eliminai
arrested in any section ?if the
Culled States, facilitating speedy
identification of a criminal arrenici!
anywhere. Sir Basil said that It is
the roving criminal who will he
easy of capture with the establish?
ment of a national bureau, to which
every police agency in the coun
try will by net of Congress he com
pelici] to forward the records of
every criminal taken into custody.
Disapproval of third degree methods
was made by Sir Basil. He said In
Kugland detectives never arrest a
man for a crime unless they are prac
tically certain of his guilt. Drag
nets, as here, are not thrown out
Sir Basil is on ? lecture tour of

Secretary Denby declares, that 'is
a result of the five-power treaty,
this is the only means by which the

foreign sea powers. In a letter to
Director Lord the Secretai y statics:
The treaty for the limitation of

on this nation a different policy

This department is now ready
to proceed with the modernization
