Individual Finger Marks Permanent
Through Life--Adoption of System
for Identification of U. S. Soldiers
A few weeks ago Inspeptoi
McLaughlin of the New York City De
tective Bureau received remarkable
?v!dence of the value of thumb-print
identifteation. A letter was brought
to him through the mails from London
ontainling the picture and record oi
i noted criminal whose thumb-print,
a-ith his name and description. was
sent to London to test the efficiency
of this new method of recording dis
tinguishing marks of criminals. By
means of the thumb-print alone. the
English police identified the criminal
captured by the New York police.
whose record in England includes eight
imprisonments on charges of larceny.
The prisoner was caught by Inspector
McLaughlin in the corridor of the
Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in April. There
were no charges against him in this
country at the tine. but the Inspector
decided that his captive was an En
glish "crook." It was found that two
patrons of the hotel had been robbed
and the prisoner was detained for a
thorough investigation of his case.
Meanwhile the Inspector sent the
thumb-print to London and the reply
brought a photograph of the "crook"
and a dupli-ate photograph of his
thuinb-print and his record.
THE BERTILLON SYSTEM.
For some time the criminal bureaus
of prominent cities have been using
the Bertillon measurement system
which also includes making two pho
tographs of the suspicious character.
but the French system and photo
graphy have fallen short in many
cases. as a scheming criminal can
adopt various.subterfuges to cheat the
law. but there is no way of changing
the character of his thumb-print, for
there are no two people whose thumbs
are exactly alike, and each person has
his own individual thumb-print whose
chiracter remains, the same from the
day of birth to the end.

the detection of crime was to '- i the
result. not of chance or luck, but of
his characteristic qualities. "With
