geant Joseph Faurot, who was aent
abroad I)ecem!er sixteenth last to study
identification system in Iondon and
Paris returned on the st curlier Carmana
yesterday. II will submit a report to
day to Commissioner Iliiiliam.
Tli thumb print method of identi
fying criminals struck Faurot as being
the surest and most useful feature of
the liertilion system. While he was in
London, pursuing his study, Scotland
yard was railed on to act in the Dept
ford murder case. Th only clue of
importance was a finger print in blood
on a cash drawer. Tire finger print
was photons plied on copper and sent
to Scotland yard, and in twenty-four
hour the detectives had the murderer.
Fa rout said yesterday that the adop
tion of the finger print system would
be a decided improvement on the Ilt-r-tillion
system a used here,
