VOLUME IX. CHICAGO, SATUHDAY, AVRIL 7. laiU-'IWKLVK 1'AiJES. Nl'MIWU 285. A TUE TMMDERBOLT OF LAW. That Is the Recognized Title of the Great Hooney & Boland Detect- i?e Agency. Its Carnr Hat Bun Ont Long Strinof Sue- cisstt in thi Dttection of GrimOp An Interesting Sketch of Its Justly Famous and Able Western Manager, Mr. William J. Sutherland. Secrecy challenges curiosity. What ever Is shrouded In mystery Invari ably awakens Investigation. Tho Iron grating of a prison door stops tho passer-by and arouses speculation and Interest. Tho clanging gong of tho police patrol, tho foam Inn horses and tho Meeting gllmpso of tho man aclcd culprit will always halt tho hurrying throng of tho street and elicit unanswered Interrogations. The forbidding criminal court, where tho question of liberty or Imprison ment la tho Issue, Insptro awo and Idle Interest. Anil thus the word "detective" has over seemed shrouded In distinguished mystery. Writers of fiction, alert to tho demand of tho reader, have played upon this quality of human naturo to an almost un limited extent. Tho detective deals with secrets. Ills work Is done under tho cover of silence. His plans, his schemes, his theories must be locked In tho recesses of his brain, for once laid bare, success is Impossi ble. Rcccptlvo ever, others must give tho Information, until tho web Is spun, and tho consummation of his work entitles him to tho name of "detective" ono who brings to light that which has been clouded In dark ness, and lays buro tho hlddon. Viowcd In this light, detective work becomes professional, and the profes sion of a llrst-olass detective stunds second to nono In worthy dignity and remuneration. Professions are Judged by their avowed objects. Tho clergyman receives respect as ho alms to ennoble mankind; tho sci entist obtains renown when ho In structs his follows; tho lawyer is honored for his ability to arrive at honest und logical conclusions; the detective, recognizing that "tho wicked love darkless," throws upon them tho search-light of his keen observation, trenchant reasoning, and natural acumen, clasps bands with tho blind goddess, and glories in Justice. The very foundation of tho de tective's profession Is truth. Ills search is for fact a crlmo is com mitted; Justice is outraged; public re sentment runs high; but tho guilty ono seems to have successfully covered his escape. Tho ordinary arms of tho law scorn stunned. Then tho do tcctlvo Is called In. (Julotly, coolly, deliberately he searches with Inde fatigable persistence. In some guilty heart tllo story of the crlmo Is writ ten; on soino burning brain tho bloody sccno Is photographed; this tho detectlvo knows but in what heart? on what brain? Ho arrays beforo him his mental forces. He analyzes every hypothesis. Ho thiows his wholo energy Into tho work, and slowly tho chain is revealed to him, link by link. Disappointments, fulso clews, must bo met, but must not bring discouragement. Ho seems al mostglftcd with supernatural powers. Success comes. Tho proof Is over whelming. Tho guilty wretch stands convicted of his crime. Again it has been proven that "murder will out," and tho professional dotectlvo has been tho Instrument of un avenging, an all-powerful Providence This is tho theory of tho profession upon which ono of the greatest asso ciations of detectives known to mod ern times is based. Tho talcntod gentlemen who constitute tho Mooney & Boland Agency arc Justly considered Important ministers at tho altar of Justice Since tho year 1870, when .lames Mooney and .John Roland, of New York City, estab lished tho agency In that city, the work that they have dono has con stantly astonished and pleas d tho reputable public and has struck terror to tho hearts of tho criminal classes. Tho readers of Tim Kaoi.k became more Intimately acquainted with this powerful organization In 1881, when tho Moonoy & Roland otllccs were opened at liil Monroe street, Chicago, where they remained until 18ii:t, when tho construction of the New York Llfo Insurance Hulldlng made a romoval necessary. Tho tlfth Moor of tho Modern Security build ing tho naiiio of which was, by tho way, especially appropriate for tho agency was procured and fitted up with cloganco and every possible modern convenience. Tho olllcos can, by a special system of long-distance telephones, bo put into dlroct com munication with any city of the United States at a moment's notice, either day or night. In 1802 Mr. Mooney, who was ono of tho most up right and popular men In tho West, died, and shortly afterwards Mr. William .1. Sutherland and Mr. Rob ert J. Ferns purchased tho Interest of Mr. Moonoy's estate. Mr. Suther land then became gcnoial manager of tho Western division. Tho won lei fill strides that tho agency has taken Is very largely duo to tho remarkable personality and ability of Mr. .Suth erland. Ho knows no such word us fall, und woo bo to the guilty person upon whose path Mr. Sutherland directs his attention or tho forces at his command. A man of highest ideals, unassailable character, fear less determination and great mental resource, Mr. Sutherland will counte nance nothing In tho discharge of tho business of tho agency that Is not more than honorable, but will leave no stono unturned to bring tho guilty to Justlco or to prevent tho punish ment of tho Innocent. Tho business annually directed from tho Chicago olllco Is trcmondous. In two-thirds of tho States representatives of tho agency arc now oporatlng, all of whom aro connected with tho olllco by direct wires, and with long dis tance telephones in tho residences of both Managor Sutherland In Chicago and Mr. Roland In Rrookbn, N. Y. A "council of war" can bo held at a mlnuto's notice as easily and as satis factorily as though tho parties woro soated In tho sumo room. Mr. Suth erland Is especially particular as to tho class of men who aro engaged by tho agency. They must first of all bo gentlemen. Tho great successes that havo glvon tho agency its pres ent position were successes gained by brain work rather than bruto force, and thoso who aro acquainted with Mr. Sutherland's tactics aro au thority for tho statement that bull dozing bruisers will never bo found clothed In tho Moonoy & Roland toga. Neither aro thoy permitted to wear stars, curry clubs, or make any out ward show of their profession. Among their runks aro to bo found men who havo been engaged in many pursuits fitting thorn exceptionally for tho duties thoy aro now performing. Soveral huvo received legal educa tion, many havo had extensive mer cantile oxporlencc, und ull uro men of J " '": w .. W "' ,... '' 1,1. . ' t ' . Iff ."'.- , '. V ? i vt;' ; . erudition and knowledge of alTairs and tho embodiment of discretion. Ono of Mr. Sutherland's superintend ents, who has under him three as sistants, is Mr. W. S. Dovcrcux, a detectlvo of wonderful sagacity, who has been with tho agency ten years. In tho Kutt-'ru States Mr. Robert .1. Kerns, of RI2 Rrnudwny, Now York, wh.i has been associated with tho agency from tho beginning, Is gen eral manager, and tho work of that division Is fully maintaining tho wonderful reputation tho agency has earned. There uro also representa tives of tho agency in almost every large European city, ready on tho In stant to do tholr chiof's bidding; but it Is of tho po(.u!ur Western manager that Chicago people desire to bo In formed particularly. Ho was born November II, I8u:i, on a farm near Logansport, Iud., being tho only son of George C. and Esther Ccurhart .Sutherland. Ills ancestors were of Scotch descent and his grand father, William .1. Sutherland, was an early resldont of the city of New York, whore his father was born, but at an early day In tho '.'io's the father and son camo west and sottlrd In In diana, en .'agin;' In tho Hour milling and grocery business. Mr. UeorgeC. Siithciluud, tho father of tho subject of this sketch, a few years prior to his death, which occuricd In 1KT.", lived on his farm near Loganspnt. Tho mother of young Sutherland died when ho was but a your old, and his fathor Hubsoiiumitly married Mls Lticiuda Lay,of Waoash, lad. Young Sutherland worked on Ills father's farm In tho summer uud In tho winter attended tho Concord schools, com pleting his common school education In Loganspoit at tho ago of sixteen. L'pon leaving school Mr. Sutherland became clerk In a grocery storo at Logansport, whore ho remained four years, tvhen ho camo to Chicago and entered tho servlco of tho Mooney & Roland Detectlvo Agency, a Now York agency at that tlmo a quarter of a century old, with a western branch then about to bo established in Chicago. For a time ho did cler ical work In tho olllco, but soon be came an actlvo outside worker, and was in duo tlmo advanced to tho po sition of Assistant Superintendent In 188(1 Messrs. Mooney & Roland opened a brunch olllco in Kansas B Mr Tl Mp -ffllMl MR. WM. J. SUTHERLAND, One of tho Most Famous Datoctives In tho World. City, and tho Chicago ucrlntcndont was sent there to take charge, upon which Mr. Sutherland was made Su perintendent at Chicago. In 1SH0 the agency was Incorporated and Mr. Sutherland was made Secretary and Manager of tho Western division, and In 18IM, upon tho doith of the senior mouther of the firm, Mr. James Mooney, ho purchased that gentle man's Interest in the business, and has sinco had entire charge of tho Western division as General Man ager. Mr. Sutherland Is a Mason, having advanced to tho Royal Arch degree. Ho Is also a member of tho Benevo lent an.l I'rotectivo Order of Klks, of tho Chicago Athletic, and soveral other clubs. During his career ns an operative In tho business In which ho is engaged, he has vlslte.l nearly every city, town and county scat of Importance In this country, and trav eled extensively abroad. In his re ligious alllll'itlous ho Is a I'resbyto rlau; In political maMcrs neutral. On Decoration Day, May, 1888, Mr. Sutherland was married to Miss Dolly Mlunlek, of Arlington Heights, 111., daughter of Dr. K. G. Mlunlek, a retired physician. Ho resides with his family on Kills avenue, In a hand somo residence erected last year, sur rounded by all the comforts of lll'c. Mr. Sutherland Is a great lover of good horses and lino dogs, and keeps In his well-appointed stables somo specimens of the 11 nest pacing and saddlo hor.o to bo found In Chicago and vicinity, while ho Is tho owner of several dogs of tho most valuablo breeds. Mr. Sutherland has long been an important factor in tho making of tho Moonoy & Roland agency one of tho hiot successful institutions of Its kind in tho entire country. Tho testimonial letters from prominent parties who havo employed tho agency in dilllcult cases, and which uro now in possession of tho Western ollice, aro numerous, uud many most complimentary things havo boon said by tho daily press of Chicago and else where lnspeuklugofitswork. Among tho uotablo cases handled by tho agency may be montloned tho cap ture, lu 1801, after a long chase, of tho famous Italian brigand, Ksposlta, alius Rendozz.ii, in Now Orleans, and his extradition and conviction by tho !' A-v " ,-i A- Italian government. Also tho clover capture and conviction, about tho same time, of Charles Decker, who counterfeited successfully tho 100 franc notes of the Rank of France. His plates and entire outfit were also captured. It was also due, 1 1 a great extent, to the excellent work of this agency that tho notorious ballot-box frauds, In this city lu 1885, wore expo-cil and punUhod. In tho trac ing out or the Intricate e'o.'tion frauds In Indiana lu 1887, per petrated by Sim Coy and his gang, the Moonoy - Roland agency did tho work under tho direction of Mr. Mithcrland. Sim Coy, us Is well known, was convlete.l and punished. In election frauds, this agency has made a notablo record of running to ground tho guilty; and also in many hoodie cases, among which may bo quoted tho Instance when this agency was employed by tho citizens' com mittee to expose uud locate tho fraudulent practices of tho county oillelals of Chicago lu 18S.". Tho trial of these cases Is well remem beted lu this city, and refilled In tho sending to the psnitentlary or sovoral county commissioners and olllclal. Tho agency was presonted, in recognition of this valuablo ser vice, with a lottcr of commendation for their uhlo and energetic work In this particular caso by ex-ludge lullus S. (Irinnell, at that tlmo State's Attorney. A multitude of cases might bo cit ed Illustrative of tho excellent serv lco and work accomplished by this great agency. A notablo ca-c of more recont dato was tho running down und capturo of Grlmshaw, tho train-wrecker, who, early in lSH.'l, wrecked tho passenger tialu on tho Grand Rapids nnd Indiana Railroad, and who was sent to tho Michigan Penitentiary for fifteen yea is. It also located lu Canada Frank L. Har por, who cmbozzled 10,000 from Van Vllsslngon, und had him sent to tho penitentiary for tho term of two nnd a half years. John II. Glussor, who had ombo.zclcd $;i,000 from tho Mur-dock-Campboll Co., wus brought back by this agency from a ranch In Cali fornia, convicted, nnd scntonccd to three years In tho penitentiary. Then A.
