They cite many lntan'V"4 of accidents wliich have oc lurred where trains were operated by Mex.can crews In support of this charge. In mi ofiici.il statement of the situation (rom here by E.

Capt. Kaurot Wants lo Finger Print tne Foundlings. A baby's finger prints, It. has been de termined by Capt. Kaurot of tho police bureau of identification, are just as dis tinctive and clearly marked as they will be at any time after the baby has reached maturity. This decision has been reached by the police Identification .expert after considerable study of youthful digital imprints. He tried lo pursue his investi gation at Bellevue Hospital, but was not permitted. Capt. Kaurot has taken linger prints of small children and after reproducing the Impressions on cants has subjected them to a careful microscopical analysis. He finds that the peculiar lineattous are sharp and distinctive, even though very tiny, and he believes that from the day of its birth to the day of Its death any child can be identified by if s finger prints. Experimenters In England and Conti nental Europe, where the finger print science waa developed earlier than it was In America, have shown by finger prints taken at Intervals of years that an individual's finger marks never change, Kaurot thinks it would be good to put his system into use In the city's maternity hospitals. Many of the children are the offspring of criminal parents, and many develop into criminals. Faurot suggests that taking their finger prints would help the police later in tracing fhese children. Such a system would he of the highest scientific value, he thinks. It would enable the authorities to determine what. proportion of those arrested for crime were born in city institutions. Records of tho parents would throw light on tho children's antecedents and would go far toward showing the relations between crime and heredity and environment. It might also help to throw light on the matter of sterilizing criminals. Finger print identification, or rather the use of such Identification, Capt. Kaurot thinks, is in Its Infancy. Ho bellex;es that when th-i science Is more generally understood It will be adopted widely In business, Bank clerks, Kaurot says, f re fluently go wrong, and the apprehension of an absconding bank employee would be greatly facilitated If the police had that employer's finger prints. Finger prints might l) attached to passports too.

CRIME INCREASES IN MEXICO. Insurance .Man Sara la Safe From Life nf No Our Haiders. Tccsos, Ariz., April 27. That, the slaughter of men, looting, burning and autrages against both sexes are rife throughout Mexico is tho statement of A. O. Weill, inspector for the Mutual Life Insurance Company, who has urrix-ed here from Mexico city. He quit the country because the company refuse to write new business until order is restored. Weill says Americans in outlaying districts are in danger now, but in the larger cen tres they are not in much jeopardy for the time being, all lieing anned and prepared for defence but If intervention comes that will he different. "Americans in Mexico city are fully armed," said Weill, "and hax-e taken every precaution to protect their lix-e-s In the event of nn outbreak. Tho Y. M. C A. Building looks like an armory. The rcsi dents of the American colony are divided into detachments, each Mug under tho command of a sergeant. English, French, German and Spanish residents in the Mexican capital aro similarly organized." Weill says the'.States ofMorelix, Oaxaca and other southern States are practically devastated, conditions there being much worse than in tho north and west. Scores of public and prix-ate buildings have Uen burned and crops destroyed either by fire or under the hoofs of raiders' horses. One travelling through the country is confronted with habitual scenes of desola tion, rapine and bloodshed. In Weill's opinion, the greatest danger at present to Americans and other foreigners is from looters who sack cities lietween the I follows: "1 parted with my brother Edward ' forty years ago in Canada, when he was i going to Michigan. My brother was born July an. 1M7, in England. Our father was John Kinneally, and our mother's name was Mary Finn. I desire particularly , that my executors make diligent inquiry i and sea'rch narticularlr aSout Ann Arbor. Allen., to discover it possinie my long lost brother. " Kinneally left the rest of his estate to charitable organizations, hut the will waa set aside in 1170 and has since been in the possession of the State. The Idaho Ken neally testllleu mat ma latner was a Sergeant in the British army, stationed at Amherst burg, Canada, from 1827 to 1820. The referee said that the father of the Brooklyn Kinneally left his wife and son Edward, who was puny and delicate, and wentUiack to England. The son William, who later came to Brooklyn, was left in charge of a priest. The claimant said that his father came from Ireland In 1831 and married Margaret K. Kenneally. and he was bom on the Canada side of Niagara Falls in 1M3. His mother died in Cleve land when he was 12 years old. but he re lied for tlie facta about his father ujion statements made by his mother and his stepsister, Mary Hardeman Tho testi mony of the claimant's nephews and nieces in Cleveland corroborated his tes timony as to his father's history. Judgo Kenneally had pipes and other memen tos of lii fath-r such as a soldier would leave, but they were all destroyed in a fire in Cleveland in 1840. The referee said that if these witnesses are to be beliex-ed it is almost sure that the father of John Kenneally and William Kinneally was the same. The coinci dences are too exact to allow any other conclusion. He said that the testimony of Timothy Finn, the Limerick claimant, is consist nt with Judge Kennenlly'scasn, Keferee Booth concludes that Judge Kenneally is a half brother of the man who left the estate Tlie latter's brother Edward wan proved to be dead by the records of the probate court of Washen taw county.
