CRIMINALS IN OLD ENGLAND
Statistics Just Issued Show Serious
Stise Drastic Reform Needed,
According to Appearances.
The recent reports' of the vari
ous government departments all
point to the increased wealth o
England and the increased trade
which it has ddnej and yet, simul
taneously with this growth of
prosperity ' (and inconsistently,
one would think,) there is an un
doubted and a serious increase' in
crim, an increase recently re
ferred to by- Sir Ralph Littler.
The social reformer may ex
plain this away as he likes, bur.
seeing that crime is largely due to
poverty and want in the ease df
the first offender, and that the fre
quent reappearance of the "habit
ual criminal" is to some extent
evidence of the failure of our most
expensive machinery for the pun
ishment and diminution of crime,
the( English' taxpayer is naturally
alarmed when he finds that even
the great prosperity which the
government departments depict
can be accompanied by a great and
ah increasing amount of crime.
Yet the fact remains that dur
ing this year, and, indeed, during
the last four years, there has been
a steady upward movement in
criminal activity. Previous ' to
ISO!) the crime statistics had been
steadily improving, and the fig
ures for crimes dealt with at the
assizes and" quarter sessions,,
where all the more serious indict
able'offenses are tried, decreased
continuously. " " -
But in the last four years these
figures have as continuously in
"ereased, and increased at a much
more rapid rate than they had
previously decreased. In these
four years, in fact, the figures for
sei jou-s offenses run thus 10,149.
10,797, 11,392, and to-day, 11,882!
The increase, too, is even more
marked, when we come to -the
worst offenses. In the Jast vear,
for example, morepersons we're
sentenced to death than in any
previous year for which we have a
rej-o'rd. The annual average of
3eath sentences for the five vears
JSOSJrv.-as 2-1.6, and for the five
years IS 1902 it was 27.4; but
iz the last recorded yettr the num
Lfr of death sentences rose to the
unprecedented total of 41. ' :
Now, if the indictable or more
serious offenses tried at these
.courts of summary jurisdiction are
added to the 11,882 cases at the
assizes ariifquarter sessions there
is a total for the last year
amounting to ES,444 serious "of
fenses, which contrasts unfavor
ably" with the. 57.06S of the pre
vioasVyear, and still worse with
t"i? preceding years, which ac
counted for 55,000, 53,628 and
5il,494 offenses, respectively.
' The next point of interest to the
jjublic is the class of crime which
i?.inereasiBg, 'and here it is foantl
that yAile acts of violence to the
p:-:scn and " assaults generally
Lave decreased, the "last for ili
gctten wealth and other' person's
'property, is increasing. ''
; But there is more behind the
: 3gures,:for it is now' a well:ascer
tamed fact that the number of
charges tried is small' in propor
vlie nurL,cr oL:': vnstn
cr.fm;tted. Eoughly, only "one
ti:hd of the total of offenders
agiiinst "property r a apprehend
ed. Thus, out of 3,685 cases of
ho asebreakingv known to the po
lice only 891 persons were appre
hendedr ahd of these only 98 were
summarily convicted. Out of a
tofaly of 9,920 offenses against
property with violence only 3,691
persons were apprehended in con
nection with those offenses. This
discloses a very serious state of
things, which the British police
authorities would do well to ex
amine. It clearly calls for a dras
tic reform. '

The old woman stood perfectly
still till he paused, dnd then said

"Worm! worm, marm! Don'i

have suddenly come into possession of a
boy baby, which came to them in rather
a mysterious manner. Tbe infant was
found lying, comfortably wrapped in a
generous bundle of clothing, upon their
door -stoop, and, although there is no
means of identifying its parentage, it has
found ajwelcome home and will be cared
for as lovingly andf'tenderly as though
it were their own flesh and blood. The
child is a healthy, beautiful blua-eyed
fellow, and was clothed in apparel which
bore the appearance of having "just been
purchased. The only information con- '
cerning the little strangeror his history
was contained in a neatly penned note,,
written in a feminine hand, which read:
"This baby born August 14, 1905."
Mr. and'Mrs. Fleenor express no desire
to learn more abont the history of the
new addition to their household, but
seem happy in its possession, on account
of having lost the secend of their two
young children on July 20. ,
