WARDEN IS CONVERT
Prison Experience Makes Him
DRINK FILLING PRISONS
Xinety-flre Cases Out of 100 Due
to LJquor Prison Congress Dis
cusses Methods of Reforming
Criminals of Nation.
SEATTLE, Aug. 17. The uniformed
band of the Washington State Reform
School at Centralia played for the
meeting of the American Prison Asso
ciation tonight. The boys were very
proud of their neat clothes and bright
Instruments. The delegates crowded
about the young musicians and shook
hands with them as Illustrations of the
new method of treating wayward boys.
The congress, according to the presi
dent. Dr. Gilmour, of Toronto, has been
one of the most profitable ever held
and notable for the high grade of the
discussions. The most general ap
plause of the day came when Warden
Hellstrom, of North Dakota, said that
his experience as a prison director had
converted him to prohibition, for he
had found that 93 of 100 convicts owed
their downfall to drink. ,
Governor Gilchrist, of Florida, also
pleased the delegates with his humor
ous approval of the enlargement of
woman's sphere, and his suggestion
that it would come about In the South
The election of officers will' take
place probably tomorrow morning. The
delegates will spend tomorrow after
noon in Tacoma, and - the Thursday
meetings will be held on the world's
"If a man . be convicted of crime
and serve a term In prison and
no steps are taken to effect his
reform or cure, a greater crime
against society has been committed than
the crime of the individual," said F. O.
Hellstrom. warden of the North Dakota
penitentiary. In his address at today's
session of the American Prison Associa
tions. "Any prison management that
forgets the moral ethics, justice and hu
manity, cannot justify its right to exist
ence," continued the speaker. "The
prison that is managed and dominated
by the spirit of revenge Is simply a
barnacle that society must remove in
order to facilitate human progress."
Governor Albert W. Gilchrist, of Flor
ida, was the most notable speaker at this
morning's session of the Prison Associa
tion Congress, his subject being "Prison
Reform in the South."
The report of the special commltte ' on
the parole of life prisoners was read by
the chairman, r. u. wens, oi nuruuiu,
Conn., and the discussion was opened by
A w. T?iitlnr. aenretarv of the Indiana
State Board of Charities.
"If a life prisoner naa worn xne
badge of bondage long enough to
satisfy the reasonable demands of
justice and to exhaust the deterrent
effects of punishment, and if he is
safe to be at large, he can be put to
better use in the world than to be kept
within grim walls until the undertaker
Is called to rattle his bones over the
stones," said Thomas Dudley Wells, of
Hartford, Conn., chairman of the com
mittee on parole of life prisoners, In a
report to the convention of the Ameri
can Prison Association today.
He declared that of the life prisoners
who have been pardoned or are on
parole, few re-engage in crime. "Crimi
nals, by accident and circumstances
rather than by design, are a smaller
social menace than the professional
offenders who regard the world as a
pocket to be picked or a safe, to be
cracked," said he.
At the night session of the congress.
Rev. Aloys M. Fish, Catholic chaplain
of the New Jersey State Prison, delivered
his annual address as president of the
Griffith J. Griffith, secretary of the
Prison Reform League, spoke on the work
of the league.
GAME NOT WORTH CANDLE
Former Chicago Belle Is Suicide in
Los Angeles Hotel.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Aug. 17. Despite
efTorta to prevent the facts becoming
public, It became known last night that
Mrs. Ada Otis, divorced wife of Thomas

and formerly Miss Ada Tilt, of Chicago,
prominent there In society and- Country
Club circles, committed suicide at the
Van Nuys Hotel, In this city, on August
4, by drinking a solution of hyacine. Ill
health and general despondency are
assigned as the cause.

woman left a note addressed to William
Coleman, a wealthy young man of San
Francisco, saying, "The game Is not
worth the candle."
Mrs. Otis was the daughter of Joseph

DECREASE IN YEAR 1908
Both Quantity and Value Show Fall
ing Off, but Employes Are More
If umerous Accidents Cause
Total 2450 Deaths.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 17. The effect of
the National depression beginning in 1907
and continuing in 1908 was the most pow
erful factor in a marked decline in the
production of coal In the United States in
1908, according to statistics compiled by
the Geological Survey. The total produc
tion In 1908 was 415,842,698 short tons, hav
ing a spot value of 532.314,U7. Of this
total, 74,347,107 long tons, with a spot
value of $159,178,849, was Pennsylvania
anthracite, and 322.573,944 short tons, with
a spot value of t374,13o,22, was bitumi
nous and lignite.
Decrease In Production.
The total production In 1908 showed a
decrease of 64.C20.7i6 short tons, or 13.43
per cent, in quantity, and of JS2.484,781, or
14.42 per cent, In value. The decrease of
bituminous coal amounted to 62,185,168
short tons, or 15.75 per cent, in quantity,
and to $77,079,574. or 17.08 per cent, in
value. In the preceding year the produc
tion of both anthracite and bituminous
coal reached the highest point ever re
corded. The total number of men Idle because
of labor troubles in 1908 In the bituminous
regions was 145,145. The total number of
working days loet In the anthracite re
gion was 6.449.938, compared with- 462,392
lost In 1907.
Accidents Kill 2450 Men.
While the record of accidents In 1907
was the worst In the history of the coun
try, the record made in 1908 was a favor
able contrast. In the 22 states from
which reports were received, 2460 men
were killed and 6772 injured in the coal
The coal mines gave employment in
1908 to a total of 690.438 men, against
680.492 In 1907. The increase gives reason
ably fair Indication of the condition of
the labor market. The surplus of labor
was general throughout the country, as
the Increase appeared in most of the
coal-producing states noting an increase
