OPPORTUNITY FOR REFORM.
The study of criminology is one which
the recent years have greatly developed.
The yearly meeting of the National
Prison Association, of which for several
years Rutherford B. Hayea was the hon
ored president, is attended by a large
number of prominent men from the
eastern portion of the United States,
and the discussions which are held in
quire into all phases of crime its preva
lence and its treatment. Statisticians
may differ as to whether or not crime is
on the increase, but all agree that the
cpslem of punishment now in vogue
throughout the country cannot be called
a success. The reports of penitentiary
officials bhow that in most cases those
who are discharged from the statft pris
ons enter again their punative experi
ence having little, if any, effect in caus
ing; a betterment of character. ' The gen
eral deduction made from the mass of
statistics presented, is that crime is on
the increase, the United States census
returns showing the following ratios :
In 1S50 there was one criminal in
3,442. In 1800 one in 1,647 ; 1870 one in
1,171; 18S0, one in 855 ; 1890, one in 757.
This indicates that in these forty years
the ratio of criminals had risen to
nearly five times what it was in 1S50.
That this increase has resulted shows
either the degeneracy of mankind, or
that our penal system is at fault. The
latter is as much the case as the former,
and there is little doubt but that a con
siderable part of this increase is charge
able to prison methods, which, instead
of reforming criminals, perpetuate the
criminal character in them, and trans
form our penitentiaries into nurseries of
crime. Under the rule prevalent in
most penal institution!, all criminals
are treated alike the boy incarcerated
for some act of indiscretion is placed
under the same regimen and given the
same treatment as the most hardened
offender. The evil companionship
which is the result, is sure to bring
about serious effects. What can be
done by differentiated treatment, ad
justed to the disciplinary needs of the
class in which each criminal belongs, is
a problem most worthy of study. It
presents many difficulties, none of
which is greater than that the scheme
of reform may be overwhelmed by the
excessive refinements and impossible
niceties of the proposed criminal classi
fication. Within limits this principal
of differentiation is already recognized
to a degree that insures it being con
sidered far more in the future.
The great increase in crime, which
from these supposedly reliable statistics,
eeema to be a fact, makes it necessary
that some means be devised to make
the habitual criminal more rare than
be is, and make relapse from confine
ment rarer yet. The problem is one
which the safety of society demands be
From the appearance the metropoli
tan newspapers present, the chief topic
of interest seems to be -whether Corbett
or Fitzsimmons is the greatest man on
earth. Statesmen, philosophers and
learning of all kinds must take a back
seat, while these two blustering punch
ers keep . the telegraph wires busy with
their unseemly boasts. The public is
' becoming nauseated with the details of
this pugilistic affair, which has degener
ated into a talking match, many limes
wor83 than the JIorr-Harvey debate.
There seems nothing in prospect but
more talk, and today's dispatches con
tain the alarming announcement that
Mrs. Bob Fitzsimmons, becoming jeal
ous that her husband is monopolizing
public attention, has taken a hand in
the affray, and airs her views through

The East Oregonian wants to see Tom
Reed and Henry Watterson nominated
for president the one on the republican
ticket and the other on the democratic.
Should these two statesmen lead their
respective parties in the fight, the coun
try would be treated to a campaign con
ducted on high principles, and one
where brilliancy and breadth of view
would predominate. Notwithstanding
Wattereon's ability as a statesman, we
doubt if any party is willing to nomin
ate an ex-confederate for the presidency.
Sectional lines have been nearly obliter
ated, but it is yet too soon for the South
to ask a presidential nomination.
