Chapter 19, Part 2
By Holice and Debbie
|OWEN HALEY, who was detailed
as a Detective in May, 1873, has had an active, honorable and
memorable career. He began well, for in July, 17873, he received
honorable mention by the Board of Police for arresting and convicting
seventeen shoplifters and pickpockets in twenty-eight days. His
industry is proverbial, and he has made as good an average of arrests
as any of his colleagues. Some of the most important were in April
1875. Charles D. Thompson, embezzlement of eleven thousand dollars at
the Core Iron Works of providence, R. I., who shot himself in the head
on the steamer Idaho, but was sent to Providence; June, 1876, William
Leith, forger on Bryer & Smith, sentenced to ten Years; March 31,
1877, Joseph Baldwin alias Peppermint Joe, Joseph F. Adams alias Joe
Butts, and "Bill" Vosburgh, for robbing Gracie, King &
Co., of a box containing one hundred and eighty thousand dollars in
bonds; May, 1877, John Price alias James Munroe, for stealing five
thousand dollars in Boston; March, 1878, William Smith alias Shaw
McGuin, and Frank Dwyer, for obtaining goods on forger orders from
John Osborne & Co..; June, 1878, Vincent McGee, alias
"Red," the "stage field," who so long collected
fares and evaded arrest; August, 1878, William Howard, burglar, caught
through imprisoning of his hands in the fanlight of a door. He charged
W. T. Van Zandt, a millionaire, with arson; April, 1879, T. McDonald
and Joseph Stern, who in three years had robbed E. C. Denning &
Co., No. 177 Broadway, of twenty thousand dollars' worth of goods,
McDonald being an employee, and Stern the receiver. Haley was
honorably mentioned for these arrests by the Board of Police, as he
was the first to inform the firm that they are being robbed; June,
1881, James T. Rooney, the barrel thief, who was convicted after being
twenty years in the business of receiving casks and barrels stolen
from brewers; October, 1881, Mark Koshofskie alias Michael, the forger

thousand dollars art Americus, Ga., money recovered; March, 1882,
George Hendrix, the flower up of the Andre Monument at Tappan, N. Y.;
April, 1882, Manuel Montana alias Gonzalez, the forger of one hundred
ad thirty checks; September, 1882, William Rogers, George Smith, W. H.
Burke, Louis Briggs, and W. G. Abbott, charged with the murder, at a picnic
row at Elizabethport, N. J., of Thomas McKeon; December, 1882,
Charles E. Poucher, forger of one hundred checks in New York and
Syracuse; December, 1882, George James Rice, president of the Elmira
and Ithaca Railroad, charges with embezzling one hundred and fifty
thousand dollars; January, 1883, William Harrison alias Hewitt, the
blackmailed of Mrs. Rich, whose husband so mysteriously disappeared;
W. H. McCabe, W. H. Hughes, Richard C. Swift, Michael O'Donnell, John
Conlon, Edward O'Keefe, Horatio S. Courtney, Richard O'Keefe, the
"false fire alarm fiends,' who had driven the Fire Department
distracted with their malicious mischief, for which all paid dearly;
October, 1883, John B. O'Reilly, and Margaret Nash, for incarcerating
their aunt in a lunatic asylum and possessing themselves of her money,
five thousand dollars; February, 1884, John Britton and Thomas Feeney
alias Freund, the Blackmailer of A. E. G. Oelrichs; October, 1884,
Rollins M. Strang, charged with embezzlement of four thousand five
hundred dollars by Jones & Co., of the New York Flour Mills;
November, 1884, Alexander C. Bransom, for forging to the amounting to
fifty-two thousand two hundred and fifty-two dollars on a number of
JOHN J. DUNN, a veteran officer, first did Detective duty in the Eighth Precinct in 1869. He is so trustworthy and possessed of such good judgment that he has had charge of the Wall Street Sub-Detective Bureau since it opened. His chief arrests as a Detective are: John Avery for murder at Creskill, N. J., who was hung at Hackensack, June 8, 1872; C. H. Madan, burglar, sentenced to twenty years by Recorder Hackett September 28, 1875; Abraham Bernstein sentenced for life for arson, and Charles Bernstein and A. D. Freeman, sentenced for the same crime to the same punishment; and Henry D. Reno sentenced for ten years for arson.
ROBERT McNAUGHT has been a Central Office Detective since December, 1877, and he has done a vast amount of first-class duty. In September, 1878, he arrested the notorious forger, Julius Columbani, and secured his conviction. Columbani was afterwards arrested by him in February, 1884, at the instance of the swindler, Mrs. peck, for negotiating bonds, stolen by burglars from E. McSorley, of Richmond, Staten island. Samuel Kane alias "Slocum," and John Norton alias "the Kid," were stealing a valise in which were twenty-seven thousand dollars in bonds, from No. 29 Broadway, in September, 1878. A couple of weeks later he arrested Clinton Ainsworth alias Smith alias "Broker Dick," who had in his possession one thousand of four thousand unsigned ten dollar notes of the Consolidated Bank of Canada, which had been stolen from the bank. In March, 1881, McNaught arrested Samuel hawthorn on a telegraphic description from Vicksburg, Mississippi, on a charge of murder. He was sentenced to ninety-nine years' imprisonment. Augustus D. Wheelock, who forged two checks for ten thousand dollars each, and stole forty-five thousand dollars, was, in November, 1881, traced to London through McNaught, and was brought back by Detective Sergeant Cosgrove.
ALVAN H. WILLIAMSON was made a Detective in November, 1873, and has done excellent service. In October, 1874, he arrested George alias 'Rat" Riley, and Robert Murray alias "Bobby, the Milkman,' for robbery of Messrs. Luther Bryant of one hundred and twenty thousand dollars and other property. Each was sentenced to ten years' imprisonment. He also convicted George Anderson of burglary at W. R. Lear's, No. 5 West Twenty-fourth Street; Thomas Hamilton for robbing L. Valentine, of No. 19 Fifth Avenue; James G. Twess for highway robbery on Ewald Bolemius, of No. 207 East Houston Street; Julius Bloom, the famous shoplifter; John anderson alias "Jimmy, the Kid," the pickpocket; and Jacob Shenholz, who burglarized the store of Harris Philips at No. 107 Hester Street.
JOHN RULAND became the Detective of the Fifteenth precinct in February, 1877,m and he kept the command clear of felons, and rarely missed catching those who committed depredation or crimes. A very important arrest was made by him in June, 1881, in the person of the king of scoundrels in the confidence fraternity, "Plin" White, who so mercilessly fleeced poor Major W. L. Hall. He was associated with Haley in the arrest of the "false fire-alarm fiends," and in other arrest made by that officer. Ruland has recovered from an affection of the eyes which, for several years, menaced him with blindness.
EDWARD SLEVIN, Sergeant in the Detective bureau, was made Ward Detective in the Fifteenth Precinct in August, 1873, and came to Police Headquarters to receive later on, well merited promotion, in March, 1880. Sergeant Slevin is Inspector Byrne's right hand man, and his confidence in him is fully warranted. One of the most genial of men in private life, he is, in his profession, keen, indefatigable, and successful. It is hardly fair to give a history of his personal arrests, for some of the most successful and extraordinary cases in New York have been brought to the point when an arrest was necessary, and another officer stepped in to make it. In September, 1876, he convicted Henry Bruner, a sneak thief, for robbing Angelina Ambrogetti, of No. 106 Cling Place, of jewelry and money. The same year he convicted John Alexander, for stealing a trunk form the City Hotel, and Mary Mitchell alias Busby, for robbing Mrs. A. L. Roberts. Next year he disposed of "Sam" Bergen and "Jack" Conroy, for stealing three thousand dollars' worth of clothes from W. D. woods, at No. 667 Broadway. Passing by hundreds of arrests by him as a Ward Detective, we come to November 21, 1883, when he arrested Richard O. Davis and Edward Darlington for a forgery of one thousand four hundred dollars on the Continental National Bank of New York, and convicted both. The same year he made one of the cleverest arrest every accomplished by an officer, that of the notorious forger "Steve" Raymond alias Marshall, for altering stolen coupons of the Union Pacific Railroad Company. Raymond was captured at the Bank of commerce while cashing a check for some of the coupons which he had cashed at the office of the Union pacific Railroad Company. He was sentenced to State Prison for life.
Much of the most important clerical work of the Detective bureau is done by Sergeant WILLIAM W. McLAUGHLIN, who was a Patrolman in 1868, a Roundsman in 1874, and won his rank in 1882. He has a clean record, and often finds time to do the best of Detective work. In 1883, William C. Bullard alias Russell alias Maltby, was combining forgery with bigamy, and was criminally successful in each, but he tried his pen on the Fifth Avenue Bank, and fell into McLaughlin's clutches after much hunting up. He is serving a five years' sentence. In May, 1882, henry Wood picked the pocket of a bank messenger of a wallet containing fifty thousand dollars in money, drafts, etc., and was convicted by McLaughlin. He caught the confidence operators, Maurice Schwab and Robert Rummels, who, in the spring of 1882, after defrauding many persons swindled the actress Helen Morris Lewis, out of five hundred dollars. Samuel B. Sinclair and W. H. Holiday were, in April, 1883, bookkeeper and salesman, respectively, with Lang & Robinson, of No. 2 South Street. they, by forgery and embezzlement, obtained seventeen thousand five hundred dollars and fled to Cuba. McLaughlin was instrumental in securing their arrest at Neuvitas, and went to Cuba and brought them back to be tried and convicted. For the gigantic scheme to get a cool million from the Elevated Railroads by forging tickets, McLaughlin arrested Joseph B. Cole, the planner of the affair; W. H. Pindar, the confederate; and A. C. Speth, the lithographers; Cole was convicted, Pindar was discharged, and Speth's case is pending.
FRANK COSGROVE, who dates from the time of the Hon. DeWitt Clinton Wheeler, has done some splendid Detective work. He owes much to his matchless aplomb and good education. He was associated, in 1881, in the arrest of the Vicksburg murderer, Samuel Hawthorne, who received a sentence of ninety-nine years' imprisonment. In September, 1880, he captured and convicted John Stanford and William Chrystie, for burglary at the residence of A. T. Albro, at White Plains. In July, 1881, he ran down Antonio Stadt, who, at the residence of Colgate Hoyt, at Yonkers, obtained by burglary three thousand dollars worth of silverware and other property, and sent him to State Prison for fifteen years. he also arrested his confederate, George Ewell, who received a sentence of ten years. Cosgrove gets a great many delicate cases, when a man who has a nice discrimination, in apparel is an acquisition, and not a few times has he mingled with the crème de la crème of upper-tendom while investigating matters that disturbed the peace of high-toned families.
WILLIAM E. FRINK is another of Inspector Byrnes' suave, well-mannered, handsome and stylishly attired officers. He went tot he Detective Bureau in February, 1882, and very soon had Franklin J. Moses, ex-Governor of South Carolina, and the profligate and swindling son of a scrupulously honest jurist, in jail. The fellow had swindled hundreds of person, but the complaint in this case was made by E. W. Crowell, of No. 195 Broadway. Moses was sent to the penitentiary for six months. A short time after, Frink run down Jacob Weil, who had embezzled three thousand dollars from Withers Brothers and Owens, No. 32 Bond Street. Weil was traced by the officer to Liverpool, and he was brought here and convicted. Richard Gerner, who swindled a letter carrier, Richard O'Connor, out of three thousand dollars, was arrested by Frink in May, 1882, and the money was disgorged. In June, 1883, he arrested Harry Moore alias Howard, for robbing a freight car of the Pennsylvania Railroad company of ten thousand dollars' worth of silks, and recovered the property. Louis Wilkins, who had swindled many through the medium of messenger boys, was caught by Frink in September, 1883. In November, 1883, he arrest Walter Cortwright alias "Big Walter,: a notorious shoplifter, for a robbery of feathers at R. M. Morton & Co.'s. at Eleventh Street and University Place, and on January 2, 1885, he captured Frank King and Patrick Hughes, who stole a jeweler's trunk from the barrage room of the Westcott Express Company's office at the Grand Central Depot. Frink recovered the jewelry, which was worth three thousand dollars.
CHARLES O'CONNOR was appointed a Detective in the Eleventh Precinct in November, 1871. His record is unexcelled. In 1872 he arrested Samuel Maloney, who three red pepper in the eyes of William Feldman and stole four thousand dollars from him at Rivington and Mangin Streets. In July, 1876, Julius Azeroff, Jonas Goldsmith and Daniel Warner entered Jacob Fieber's residence, No. 712 East Sixth Street, and Warner knocked Fieber senseless, while his confederates rifled a trunk and stole six hundred dollars. O'Connor ferreted out the criminals, and they were duly convicted. In March, 1877, O'Connor arrested John Dailey, Francis McCormack, John Doherty and James Lynch for murdering Frank Reilly at Stanton and Goerck Street. Dailey received a life sentence, and the others went to prison for four years. The same year he convicted peter Delaney and George Lewis for stabbing William Pulver at Rivington and Lewis Streets, so that he had fifteen wounds, and robbing him. He enabled justice to settle an account with John Burns, Edward Harrison, and Joseph Smith, who, early in 1878, entered the jewelry store of Jacob Ling, at No. 453 East Ninth Street, awed Mrs. Ling, who was alone, by pointing a pistol at her, and robbed the place. In February, 1874, he caught Edward Gearing alias Goodrich alias Morris alias Goody, the "butcher cart" thief, who, with a confederate, robbed William R. church of two thousand dollars at the One Hundred and Eleventh Street station of the Second Avenue Elevated Railroad. Gearing was sent to prison for twenty years.
GEORGE H. DILKS, song of the veteran Inspector, became a Detective in March, 1872. Next year he made a very brilliant arrest. The notorious "Jimmy" Brady alias Oscar Peterson, was negotiating the sale of forty thousand dollars in stolen bonds, when Dilks and Detective Tully surprised him, and Brady fled. Dilks pursued him through Carmine, Bedford, and Leroy Streets, and here fired at him, wounding him in the hip, Brady plunged into a window, and Dilks fired through the window again, wounding him in the hip. Brady was tugging at his pistol, but the hammer caught in the lining of his pocket, and Dilks had time to get in the window and compel a surrender under the muzzle of his weapon. The bonds were found where Brady was trying to sell them. He was sent to Sing Sing fort en years, and is now serving a sentence of seventeen years and a half for a petty robbery of silk underclothing in a Broadway store, when he was drunk from a carouse which celebrated the division of forty thousand dollars, the proceeds of several bank robberies; and for the shooting and wounding of Officer Paddock, of the Broadway Squad, who pursued him. Dilks was associated with Detective Haley in the arrest of "Peppermint Joe," and "Joe Butts," for the Charleston robbery in 1877. This year Dilks arrested and convicted John Price alias James Monroe, for stealing five thousand dollars in bonds from a hair store in Washington Street, Boston; and in 1876 he ran to earth the scoundrelly and ferocious Italian confidence operator, Andrea Bressant, and his confederate Pietro Valgoe, who had robbed a compatriot in Boston of one thousand nine hundred dollars. Going to Boston, Bressant, although handcuffed, leaped from a train going at full speed. He was not seriously injured, and was recaptured and landed in Boston. He also arrested the skilled trickster, and diamond thief, Claude Burroughs, who, by dodging out of a room at the Grand Central Hotel, swindled John R. Greason & Co., the jewelers, out of gems worth four thousand six hundred dollars. Burroughs was sent to the Elmira Reformatory. In 1884, he, with Detective Sergeant Cosgrove, convicted Catherine Murray, the expert English thief, who has robbed Mrs. H. B. hatch, of No. 531 Fifth Avenue, of three thousand dollars' worth of property; and with the same officer ended temporarily the career of Ralph Newton, who had embezzled seven thousand dollars from A. H., Wheeler & Co., No. 30 New Street. They caught him by a ruse. He was a musical amateur, and when they found that he would not be "in" at his lodging, they personated minstrels, procured a violin, and son enticed him out of his retirement.
GEORGE LANTHIER was appointed a detective in July, 1879. He is, perhaps, the best dressed member of Inspector Byrnes' staff, and very frequently does duty in a "swallow tail." He is generally one of the favored ones who are selected to attend grand receptions and entertainments to look out for light-fingered gentry. His record of arrest is a capital one. He, in February, 1880, captured Langdon W. Moore, alias Charles Adams, for the burglary at the Warren Savings Bank, Boston, who is completing a term of sixteen years in the Massachusetts State Prison. That month he caught Ernestine Smith, who stole five thousand dollars' worth of diamonds at No. 54 West Fifty-sixth Street; and the same year brought to book John Anderson alias "Little Andy," for obtaining five thousand five hundred dollars' worth of jewelry by a burglary at a Third Avenue pawnbroker's. In December, 1880, he arrest and convicted the blackmailer, Jacob Isleton; and in March, 1881, ran down, at Denver, Col., James Orr, who had embezzled sixty-five thousand dollars from Jackson S. Schultz.
EDGAR S. SLAUSON, a pupil of Richard King, became a Detective in October, 1882, and he is an efficient, quiet and painstaking member of the Detective force. A few days after he went to the Central Office he arrested Archibald Adams and William Johnson, for robbing the pawnbroker, Thomas Green, of No. 171 Bowery, of three thousand five hundred dollars by "ringing the changes" on the tickets. The prisoners were sent to the Elmira Reformatory. In August, 1883, he locked up John Jenning alias "Liverpool Jack," a professional safe blower, for a burglary at No. 29 Frankfort Street, and convicted him.
In June, 1884, he convicted Michael and Thomas Callahan and Carroll F. Richards, for stealing four trunks containing property worth three thousand five hundred dollars, from the Office of Dodd's Express Co.
SILAS W. ROGERS was made a Detective in the Twenty-ninth Precinct in 1874, and is au fait in anything that concerns his duties. His early arrests show a long list of burglars, hotel thieves, and sneaks. In April, 1882, he arrested and convicted James lee, the bogus Custom House officer, and the next month checked the career of James J. Courtney, the forger, who passed a check for three thousand three hundred and ten dollars, and fifty cents on the Marine Bank. The next year he convicted Michael martin, the East River national Bank forger. Next May he caught and convicted timothy J. Gilmore, who forged on C. T., Gorham, the First Street flour merchant; and in June, 1884, sequestered Michael Koshofski, who passed worthless checks on Mitchell Vance & Co., and R. H. Macy & Co. Last December he aided in the capture of "Tom" Connors, William R. Hibone, and John McKeon, the King's County Penitentiary burglars.
GEORGE W. McCLUSKY was made a Detective in October, 1883, and two months later arrested David Lowenthal alias "Sheeny Dave," for stealing a diamond bracelet at the jewelry store of Thomas Kirkpatrick * Co., Twenty-second Street and Broadway. He was put under bail, and left his bondsman in the lurch. In January, 1884, he arrested and convicted Thomas P. Ryan alias "Tim Simon," for robbing a man of a gold watch in Madison Square Garden; and next month he captured and convicted the professional bill dropper, Robert Hawthorne, alias Hartshorn; James McGuire alias Jesse James, and Patrick McGrath alias "Blind Patsey," for robbing an Italian of six hundred dollars in Crosby Street.
ALBERTIS WOOD was made a Detective in 1881, and has done his full share of duty. His principal arrests are: April, 1882, John Fogarty, burglar, sentenced to two years; October 3, 1882, George Morton, burglar, one year; October 6, John McMahon, grand larceny, five years; March, 1883, Charles Raymond, grand larceny, five yeas; June 1884, George Miller, grand larceny, three years and a half; and January, 1885, Charles H. Webb, forgery, one year.
THOMAS DOYLE was appointed a Detective in the First Precinct in April, 1864. His career has been an honorable and useful one. He aided, in July, 1875, in arresting John H. Short for the burglary at Jacob Vanderbilt's, on Staten Island, and in February, 1871, sent G. W. Lambert to Sing Sing for receiving stolen goods. He aided in the arrest of Edward J. Courtney for the three thousand three hundred dollar forgery on the Marine Bank in 1882, and in November of that year convicted Michael martin for a forgery on the East River Bank. In February, 1884, he arrested and convicted the forger, Timothy Gilmore, who had done a rushing business in small checks.
DENNIS J. FOGARTY was made a Ward Detective in the Fifth Precinct in 1877, and has had a honorable and busy career. He shares his credit with his partner, Martin Handy, who was made a Detective in the Eighteenth Precinct in 1876. In August, 1877, Fogarty and Handy arrested the sneak thief, Daniel Brown alias French Louis, for breaking into Scott Brothers' store, 120 White Street, and convicted him. In November, 1878, they captured Francisco De Jeane, who murdered William Pease in York Street, and was sentenced for life. In November, 1877, they ran down Edward Edgar alias E. E. Hemingway, who, with others, cut into Patterson & towers' bonded warehouse. They were surprised by a watchman when they had thirty thousand dollars' worth of silk prepared for removal. In January, 1885, they arrested and convicted the Italian confidence operators, Giovanni Rocco and Adolfo Pardinni, who swindled Felix Luigi out of one thousand six hundred dollars, part of which was recovered.
CHARLES KUSH went tot he Central office in June, 1881, and has done the best of quiet and thorough service. Among his many arrests re: April, 1882, "Red" Fogarty, burglary, sentenced to two years; December, 1882, John McMahon, grand larceny, sentenced to five years; March, 1883, Charles Raymond, grand larceny, sentenced to five years; February, 1884, "Fred" Herbert, blackmailing, sentenced to two years.
JAMES F. VALLELY is the latest addition to the Chief Detectives' staff. If he continues to do as well as he did in the Twentieth Precinct, where he was appointed Ward Detective in October, 1883, he will make his mark. His chief arrests are: November, 1883, Thomas Porter, the robber of Jesse Waldron at No. 407 East Seventy-eighth Street, sent to prison for twenty years; March, 1884, William Messner, arson, sent to prison for two and a half years; October, 1883, William McKenna, alias Dick Duffy, larceny, sentenced to five years; January, 1885, Patrick Hughes alias Frank King, for stealing a jeweler's trunk at the Grand Central Depot, sent to prison for six and a half years.
THE DETECTIVE OFFICERS.--With the Detective Sergeant's are ten Patrolmen, classed as Detective Officers, who, under Inspector Byrnes' system, have more than a fair chance of becoming Detective Sergeants. They are James R. Kelsey, Edward H. Doyle, Thomas Ferris, Charles A. Hanley, John Killilea, John L. Langdon, James E. Liston, Stephen O'Brien, Joseph C. Gehegan, and Joseph D. Wooldridge. Kelsey was graduated in the Tenth Precinct, and has been a valuable aid in many cases. Doyle and Langdon are partners, and have done work that has advanced them in the estimation of the chief. Thomas Ferris is n old Detective, having been appointed in 1875. In 1877 he arrested Edward Dorsey, who committed a murder in Frederick county, Md., and was executed. Hanley was one of the best officers in the Fifteenth Precinct before he was promoted to the Central Office. His partner, Killilea, has a equally enviable reputation. Liston, two days after last Christmas Day, ferreted out the bogus messenger boys, John Cunningham and John burns, who had reaped a holiday harvest our of Wall Street brokers at the expense of the legitimate messengers of the various companies. O'Brien has been under Inspector Byrnes nine months, and promises well. Gehegan, in December last, rundown Francisco Damato, for murder in New Haven, who was sentenced to ten years imprisonment. Wooldridge is a chip of the old block. His father was a famous Central Office Detective.
JACOB VON GERICHTEN may be called a young veteran. He has done fifteen years of excellent service, first in the eighth Ward, and then in the Central Office Detective Bureau, and he is not in Europe on official business. He is side partner to Philip Reilly. Von Gerichten is a linguist, and has traveled many thousands of miles in this country and in Europe on Police business. He was associated with Detective Sergeant Reilly in the following cases: February, 1882, P. K. Post, Alexander Ross, forgery, sent to prison for ten years each; July, 1882, Jacob Weil, forgery, extradited from England, sent to prison for five years; Edward Kelly, straw bondsman, sent to prison for five years in October, 1882; Herman David, May, 1883, robbery, sent to State Prison for five years.
JOHN HEARD AND THOMAS MURRAY have not been long at Police Headquarters, but they promise to make as good a reputation as any under the Chief Detective. Heard distinguished himself in august, 1883, by arresting the notorious "Mart" Allen, John Moore, Edward Thomas and Walter Allen, "Mart's" son, for flat robberies in Harlem."Mart" trained his offspring to be a thief, and in these robberies, which were many and important, sent him ahead to ring bells and reconnoitre. "Mart" got ten years, Moore five years, and Thomas three years. Young Allen was discharged.
THOMAS F. ADAMS, an old and skilled officer, has been incapacitated by ill health from doing very active duty for several years. He’s not in New Orleans doing Special Detective duty for the management of the Exposition. He invented the mechanical part of the present Rogues' gallery, and has arranged and classified it.
