John J. Keeley, assistant chief of

criminal "chasers" in the country. Is

Keeley is a giant in stature and has
seen service from the position of pro
bationary patrolman to his present
office. During his career on tho St
Louis force he has distinguished him
self for bravery and ability In handling
the most intricate cases.
So valuable is he as an officer and so
.great is his acquaintance with crooks
and other criminals of the country,
that he is able to recognize a large pro
portion of the faces that adorn the
rogues' gallery in his office, consisting
of several thousand photographs, at a
For several years past, he has been
the representative of the St. Louis de
partment at national gatherings where
the police departments of the great
cities are-required to protect the crowds
from the depredations by thieves , and
the criminal class. He has attended
the festivities of presidential inaugu
rations several times and is a familiar
figure at national political conventions.
Bhot Five Times
During his career, Keeley has passed
through experiences which have caused
him to carry an unusual sprinkling of
gray hairs. One bullet is his constant
companion, and for five years has been
Imbedded in his body.
One evening in I June, 1900, Chief
Keeley was riding from home to his
office in the Four Courts, when he es
pied two of the most desperate crimin
als of the day, for whom the depart
ment had been searching for several
•weeks. These men, "Biddy" Holden and
John Julian, were notorious thieves,
and were under charges of numerous
robberies of saloons and one murder.
Keeley alighted from the street car
and attempted to arrest them. The
criminals ran up an alley, but were
overtaken by Keeley and a scuffle en
sued, in which Julian tore loose and
dashed up the alley, while Keeley and
Holden fought' for mastery. As Keeley
threw Holden to the ground and was
handcuffing him, Julian turned and
fired five shots, each taking effect in
One bullet struck him in the back of
the neck and came out through the up
per lip, another shattered his left arm,
another lodged In his left side under
the heart, and two bullets struck him
in the hips.
Never Lost Consciousness
Despite thesa wounds, Keeley held on
to Holden until he fainted from loss
of blood: The fainting spell was but
momentary in duration, although suffi
cient to cause him to relax his hold
upon the criminal, and Holden escaped,
Keeley was taken to a hospital and
made a successful fight of nine weeks,
recovering after the surgeons had pro
nounced htm dead at least twice. , '
Julian was arrested a few months
later in Kansas City for robbing sa
loons, his old trick of placing the bar
tender in the ice box leading to his
identification and subsequent prosecu
tion on the charge of attempted mur
der of Keeley. He was convicted and
is now serving a forty-year sentence In
the Missouri penitentiary. Holden was
later arrested in New York for robbery
and is serving a ten. years' sentence in
Despite this narrow escape from
death, Keeley. Is enamored of his pro
fession and the prominence of his name
in police circles throughout the coun

LOS ANGELES HERALD* FRIDAY^MORNING, 'AUGUST «, 1905.
IOTEO DETECTIVE FROM ST. LOUIS BEARS CHARMED LIFE
JOHN J. KEELEY
try attests to his excellent abilities as
an official.' % v- T
■Keeley is -. assistant to the famous
"Bill" Desmond, head of the St. Louis
detective department, i and r known'- and
feared' throughout- the .country by
every criminal with whom he has come
In conta'et. * Under, the '.tutelage of Des
mond, who is. recognized as the father
of the "sweating" process of extracting
confessions from criminals, ■ Keeley has
become a leading expert at 'the- art. ,
.Through the application of his nerve
racking .and ■ terrorizing, powers' of
"sweating," Keeley turned up • one of
the most mysterious murders that has
happened -in St. Louis ' In recent ' years.
In December,' 1902, John. Moogr,", a -cigar
dealer on. South Fourth street \ln' that
city, was found dead in hia store, with
his throat cut from ear .' to.'. ear. No
clew was found by the detectives 'that
would lead to the Identification of the
murderer, and the case semed hope
less. .;■.;:.. ' . , ■ ■ . - - ' .-
A few i days following the murder,
Emll ■ .Turk was arrested •for \ burglary
and taken before Keeley, who was act
ing as chief in the . absence of Des
rnand. and ,by an- inexplicable power
of divination, Keeley. became convinced
that Turk was the murderer of Moog.
For eight hours, and after using all the
devices known for forcing, confessions
from criminals, Keeley ■ worked to , se
cure a confession without result. When
almost convinced of being mistaken in
his judgment, Keeley tried a new, tack.
• Results by "Identification"
A special ■ officer was instructed ■ to
"Identify" the prisoner when called in
to the room, the exact time and place
of the last time he could remember hav
ing seen him being definitely settled by
instruction from Keeley. ■In this man
ner, the "identification" of Turk as
having been . in the vicinity of- the
murdered man's store on the , particular
night was made complete and the pris
oner broke down and confessed. Impli
cating four others. ■ . . . .
Through the technicalities of . the
law, Turk waspermlted to plead guilty
to a minor offense and was sentenced
to fifteen years In . the penitentiary,
where he died. .
: The .St. Louis detective department's
'Jsweat box", has become a terror to the
evil-doer and' under the expert hand
ling of -Desmond ■ and • Keeley ' many
crimes have been. brought to -light and
the offender given punishment which
could, '. rtot- ' have •■ resulted - from, other
methods or sources. ., lt has. become so
valuable an adjunct to the department
that all of the seventy-five detectives
in the department are required to take
courses of training in the branch and
develop into useful . officers . thereby
