it t0ES any criminal ever make n
j siirciiss of his business
This question vns naked of Inspector
John D Shea n few duys ago
What do you moan by succes
Well does bo make a great dealer
money and escape imprisonment
Tlint depends on whether lie calls
himself an out-and-out crook or merely
operates as a highly moral business
mini replied the Inspector with a
smile Among tho so called profes
blonal criminals there are a great many
who get hold of largo sums of money
at times and from the money stand
point you might say they were fairly
miccessful but in ifenily every instance
they nre linally landed in some pcuitcn
iiary
Do you know of any professional
criminal who escaped punishment alto
gether
Yes I know of oue and he is the
only one 1 can recall at this moment
He lives on the West side This fellow
has been a buiglar and all round crook
for 3surs and wc are well satisfied
tliat ho has done a good many jobs
but we have nover been able toget him
lie has been wonderfully lucky One
night he una brought into the Dcs
plalues street station with a dark lan
tern a putty knife and some other
tools of the trade on his person That
is lib near as wc ever came to nabbing
him in the act He had been caught
in an alley if he had been an old
timer we might have got him out of
the way for awhile on such proof but
ns he had never been convicted before
we couldnt do anything This fellow
lias had a great many partners and
every one of them has been caught
Most oflheui aie doing time now but
he has had lemarkable luck UelPbe
ont over some day though
When a mini starts out to boa pro
fessional ciiminal how does he usually
betray hinibelf to the police Does he
Income overconfident ufter one or two
successful jobs
Yes ho is npt to tnke chances if he
has gofi nway with two or three jobs
ITc begins to think that he is too
smooth for the police Usually how
cer ho liist conies under suspicion by
Toeing seen in company with crook
who are well known to the police
CiUninnls naturally ilock together and
make friends with one nnothef The
common danger and the common Inter
est help to make thisin Intimate It la
natural for them to work in gangs and
pairs aud a fellow who staVts out on
lus own hook is almost sure to land
Ui a gang very soon and as soon as he
does ho comes under the notice of th
police
There nre some perhaps who have
proverbial bad luck
Yes there are plenty who get out of
one penitentiary just in time to breah
into another Criminals as a class nre
poorly paid if you count in the tim
that they serve Leaving the wrong
and right entirely out of the question
its a bad business proposition lust
ns nu instance A lwv years ngo an
expert bank sneak named Murphy wn
let out of iloliet aud the nest week
he showed up here in Chicngo One
of the dotoetheb met him and brought
him to the con ti al station I asked him
wluit lus was doing and he said he
was looking for work and was going to
lend an honest life He sWore by nil
that was good and holy that he would
neier steal another dollar as long as hi
lited 1 didnt want to doubt the man
but 1 told him thut if he wanted to U
straight hed bettor get out of Chicago
and away from his old pnlt and Settle
down n Bmie quiet place where tht
police wouldnt be Watching him all thr
time He thought well of my sugges
tion and left town About n week nfte
that we got word that a couple of fob
lows had been caught dtyjvn in Ohio
trying to do a jobjn a country bank
The police In Ohio couldnt identify
these fellows bo Andy Iloliqn went
down to tnke a look at them Of course
Andy Unows more crooks by sight thnj
any other man in the department Tin
minute he saw these fellow s he rco
ognlzed one of them as Murphy Being
n good professional Murphy was pul
away for a few years in Ohio
One night I was turning the co
iter ntllalstcd and MadUon streets and
sjw a man nnd woman crossing the
street I got just a glimpse of the man
but I knew that i haduecn him some
where before but couldnt place him
When J had walked about 100 feet oi
o from thccornej heard some oni
Wiling1 behind in and saw people run
N Wing toward a Hor sliln I liurriiu
back arnl nnlii1 m iUn ln nA
floor with n crowd nrollnd him was
Murphy Hd wfta the fellow I had seen
with tho woman As soon nfl 1 got a
fair peep at his face I Jcnew him 1
went up to him and soyas Whats the
matter Murphy He aysj I dont
know but I guess Im crazy The
tailor told me that he had cuught him
trytug to get away with a bolt of cloth
The woman had acted as a stall for hltn
He had got the bolt of cloth under his
oyeruoui and startcdi down the street
with It when It fell out The tnllor snw
It undlran after him and caught him
to Murphy i You have got
dpwn to stealing n bolt of cloth have
you Well sir he wns nil brokeh up
It humiliated him to think that a man
of his standing in the profession should
be caught doing such cheap work It
scorned that he had just got out of the
Ohio penitentiary a feV days before
and landed In Chicago He ran out of
money and decided to do any kind of a
small job that would give him a grub
stake as be called it lie got the worn-
an to help hlmnud didnt think there
was a chance on earth for him lo fall
As It was he wad caught as easily as if
he had been mi amateur ItseUled him
for another term too just as surely ns
if he had stolen 10000
Many people of humane sentiments
and a genernl Ignoraucc of criminals
have protested against the police keep
ing watch over ex convicts and all men
wlio have been photographed for the
rogues gallery
It Is true that certain criminals nre
taken into custody on sight whether
any definite chnrge caji be lodged
against them or not Tlicy are brought
In nnd questioned nnd sometimes
they arc advised to leave town or else
threatened with n bridewell sentence
on a charge of vagrancy
The claim is made that sometimes
the criminals and cs convlcts are so
harried and persecuted by the police
that they cannot reform The police in
terference prevents them from secur
ing employment mid so long as they
ure regarded as criminnls nnd treated
ns criminnls they mlghtas well be crim
inals in fact and enjoy some pf the re
wards of crime
There is another side to this story of
course If the police worked on the as
sumption that every man returning
from Jolict hnd a sincere desire to re
form nnd lend an honest life and there
fore was not to be kept under surveil
inncc there Is no doubt that criminals
would flock to Chicago and operate
more boldly than at present It is a
fact that those cities in which the po
lice have arbitrary power nnd exert it
with severity on all recorded criminals
nro the cities which the crooks give a
wide berth and in which life nnd prop
erty arc much better protected than
they would be otherwise
When it became a matter of general
knowledge that any known crook in
Pittsburgh would be put to work on
tho stone pile without legal fuss or cer
emony the moral tone of the com
munity moved up several uotches In
buouoiit in and questioned
the eyes of the police the end justifies
ihe means and an experienced officer
and thief catcher such as Inspector
Shun has very little sympathy with sen
timental theories
If a man really nttempts to reform
will he be nble to do it Will the police
persecute him and cnlLup his past and
prevent his earning an honest liveli
hood The police say not Itisclaimcd
that many reformed crooks are living
quietly In Chicngo without any bother
from tho police Some of them hnve de
odorized their records and gone into
politics with great success
When Maj McClaugbry came to Chi
cago to be chief of jkjUco under Hemp
stead IVashburnc lm visited every sta
tion In Chicago nnd nio t face to face
every officer in tho entire depart
ment While on his rounds he found
two policemen whom he hnd known as
convicts in Joliel penitentiary when he
was warden there He recognized them
ns they stood In line nnd of course
they recognized him Tioth men came
to the chiefs ofllce to plead with him
They expected to be let off the force
but the chief assured each man that he
might remain in the department on his
merits ns an officer and the fact that bo
hal been a convict would not count
agalust him la tho least He alto prom
ised to keep the secret Iloth men hnd
mado good policemen and had lived
down their early misfortunes-Chicago

The Stutc Department has given
out the following In view of the
widely published reports that
the French mail uteamship
Lafayette which was recently
permitted to enter Havana and dis
charge her official mail had vio
lated the neutrality under which
the privilege was accorded her by
the Govemmentof the United Stales
it is authoritatively stated that the
Department ot State has been sat
isfactorily convinced that nothing
of the kind was done that no mer
chandise whatever no contraband
of war and no Spanish gunners
were recently landed at Havana by
the Lafayette The statement
was given out as a result of repre
sentations received from theFrench
embassy The French Ambassa
dor haB been sincerely anxious to
maintain the good feeling existing
between the country and France
and be feared that some recent
publications to the effect that the
Lafayette had carried guns and
ammunition into Ha an a in time
might become accepted as a fact
