Officials do Not Know now and Peo
ple do Not Know Conditions.
Boston. Mass., June 7. A complete
revolution In the treatment of mis
demeanants and petty offenders thro
ughout the United States was propos
ed by Dr. Ferderlck Howard Winea,
Statistician of the Board of Adminis
tration of State Institutions of Illinois
at the opening session of the National
Conference of Charatles and Correc
tion here tonight.
Dr. Wines characterized the aver
age county or municipal jail in this
country as a school for crime, a cess
pool of moral contagion, a propogat
lnfs house df criminality, a public
nuisance and a disgrace to modern
civilization. The public indifference
to the "situation he partly attributed
to ignorance. "The county officials"
he said, "do not know what a Jail Is
supposed to be and the people do not
know what their Jails really are. In
plain Anglo-Saxon, the truth, is that
wherever there exists local graft and
political dishonesty the countv prison
is its center and its stronghold. The
sheriff or the Jailer makes a personal
profit from crime by charging per
diem for board for prisoners and by
the receipt of fees for ' locking and
unlocking the Jail doors. The profits
are a live wire. No. local politician,
possibly no member of the legislature
or even of tha state administration
dares monkey with It.
"We have substantially won the
fight for the reformatory stats prison
and the Intermediate sentence becau3
we concentrated our .fire upon a vul
nerable point and? made every shot
tell. In attacking the county jail
system we have pursued the opposite
policy. We have addressed our ar
guments and remonstrances to the
county officials, of whom there are in
Tound numbers 2500 sets, instead of
to the legislative bodies, of which
there are less than .50 We have
pleaded fer new jails, better jails,
when we should have demanded their
replacement by prisons owned and
controlled by the state and their eman
cipation from political control with Its
petty and selfish interests.
"There was a time when local con
trol was necessary and proper, but
that was long ago. Today the county
prison is an anachronism. We im
ported It with other Institutions from
England, but conservative England
has outgrown It and dates the dawn
o fits regenerate prison system from
the year of Its abolition. There Is no
good and sufficient reason why the
state which enact the criminal code
with Its- definition of crime, Its pro
hibitions and its penalties should as
sume the custody and care of the man
committed to prison for three years
and refuse to recognize its responsi
bility for the man sentenced for three
months, abandoning him to the hap
hazard mercies of inferior Jurisdic
tion which is certainly Ignorant, often
brutal and some times dishonest. It
is not the majesty of the county but
that of the state which calls for vin
dication. The supervision of crims,
let It take what form it may, is the
business of the state. The state should
name, and it should have exclusive
authority over the executive agents
to whom it entrusts the discharge
of ..this supreme governmental func
tion. 1
"The one hope of enlightened pro
gress in dealing with the problem of
crime is the overthrow of the county
Jail system. To this end we must
direct our energy. With the state
once in command there can be no ques
tion but it will find a way to right the
wrong and .remedy the evils which In
here In the present organization and
management of minor prisons."
Lutherans In Conference.
Washington, D. C, June 7. The
General Synod of the Evangelical Lu
theran church of the United States,
the oldest of American Lutheran bod
ies, assembled In the Luther Place
Memorial church in this city today for
lts 45th biennial convention. The
conference is attended by several hun
delegates representing 300,000 mem
bers of the church. Th sessions will
last a week or longer. Proposals for
a closer affiliation with other denomi
nations In church and mission work
will be discussed. The conference al
so is expected to take the .final steps
for the adoption of the new common
Lutheran hymnal.
Corvallls, Ore., June 7. Prediction
is made by Prof E. L. Potter of the
animal husbandry department of the
Oregon agricultural college, who !s
also secretary of the new state stal
lion license board, that the operation
of the new stallion law will save the
horsemen of the state many thousands
of dollars.
"If we had had the law before U
would have saved some $10,000 or $13,.
000 to the horseman of the state on
the price of animals sold them as pure
bred under bogus eert'flcates," said
Prof. Potter yesterday discussing the
results to be expected. "It is prob
able that $1,000 more was paid allocs
for the dozen stallions with unsatis
factory pedigrees for whom we have
received requests for licenses, than If
a true statement of their breeding had
been given at the time of sale.
"We have thus far had applications
from about 400 stallion owners, whlcli
s probably not much over half , t!
number of stallions owned at present
In Oregon. The greater number have
come from Wallowa county, though
many have come In from Marlon, Doug
las, Baker, and other parts of thr state
We take these applications as an evl
u.ucc ut. feuou iaiiu uu uuj pai't vi me
breeders, and they will not, of course,
be prevented from using their stal
lions between the filing of the appli
cation and the' issuance of the license.
The heavy correspondence .regarding
applications and the work of classify
ing and .filing them, occupies us at
present, but when that is done we will
begin issuing the licenses.
"Besides correcting the present
practice of some horsemen of selling
and using stallions having bogus pedi
grees, the new law will do much to
raise the standard of soundness, and
thus Improve the stock of the future.
The future saving to horsement of
Oregon on these two points will "be
mc:e than the entire cost of Inspec
tion and registration, to say nothing
of the prevention of the uso of stal
lions as 'hound' which have diseases
or constitutional weaknesses liable to
affect the offspring."

as a result of a dispute over the man

the management of church property.
His attitude In the matter has met
wth strong resentment on the uart
