FINGER=PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. English detectives are astonished by the fact that, though the Paris police were in pcssession of an infallible clue, In the form of a finger-print on the glass of the discarded frame, to the identity of the man who stolo "La Gio conda," from the Louvre two years ago, no arrest was made until last Friday (sftvs "The Daily Mall" of December 16). "In France," said a prominent au thority ycBterday, "although the police take finger-prints, thoy depend chiefly on physical measurements, which they classify and file. If they arrest a man they can by his measurements identify him with former crimes, but they are somewhat at sea unless an arrest has been made. In England tho finger-prim Is tho chief form of identification: the ordinary measurements are taken, but they are of secondary importance. Give us a fair finger-print, and if the maker of that print has been in the hands of tho police before we can in 999 cases out of 1000 tell you who he is. ...
