NOTES OP A BXSTANDER.
The.follbwing editoriel article from
the Oregoniau of- Thursday last pre-ralhi-r
a -ilark piciurc, and one
that is worthy of stmly from every
IHiiut of view: t
A VKUY ;UAVE MATTER.
Crime iiicreasi-s in our .country be
jond the roportion of lucrea.se of ihi
iilation. There Can 1m no tpiestiou
atNHit It. f The "tendencies of modern
society seem strongly In the diret-tlou
of eucouragemnt of crime, not-repression'
of if. ..The - reason is not far to
seek. Tlie socialistic-tendency encour
ages the iden that it is the right of
the -ludiV'iduttl to live, and to have
what he vauts. without effort of his
own, mil of tlit social -orgauixathm.
One, side of the fhristian religion for
lie .Christ ia n religion on" one side
tends strongly towards the doctriuc
that the Worthless have a right to ls
'Piwrtil at tlie exiense of tlie indus
tt ionsi ami 'elllcient gives to. this view
imwcrfid impulse and Mippirt.
'. The iloetrine is virtually taught that
ijt Is hard, even wrong, to exiHt-t pet
p!e; to work for a living, so long as
others have plenty, or appear ..to have
plenty, that can 1h got by-;. 'hook or
crook. Our politics, under universal
suffrage., are organized on this basis.
Pusiuess Is beset by this spirit, which
is organized Into action, from every
side. --' - .' n
Si niiK'h Is mixlwn life under this
Influence that ; it ls,banl for employers
t hold employes, in iositious of trust,
r.p to the niuirrnients of honesty. The
Jnry; will tell you that the employe Is
poorand the employer can stand it.
In most cases the money has been
fqmindered In dissipation; but why
'shonhliit the Mr fellow have the in
dulgences he wants? He gets littl?
I nugh. ' anyliow. virtue and Imlus-
told this-.In plain terms; but it Is
what it; comes to. Yet it Is no kind
i'ss fo delinquents. On flK contrary,
it is the "flowery way that leads to
the broad gate and the great fire."
Onr economic writers are not mis
f:il:?ii. ! Tl.iey - snpftort. Iheir jKsltkn

and attesiel by every authority.
And whit is the ieasi? Helaxathm
of moral severity. Pity for the offend
er, instead of pnnishmcut. These fig-
t'ros are taken from tlie I niteu Mates
census of the past live decades:
:- ' c;i
18IW . .
It Is lelievsl that the census fign res
or tlie presenr year.viu nw .even inre
slartlinjr. It is de-ay of the Individual
moral liber, relaxation of the ,imral
forces of .society, that produces! these
results. 'It is held by large nniuliers
aud almost advocated as an axiom
by a isditicaf party, that the man who
has made accumulations by intelligent
ami painstains industry may Is des
Itoiicd; with or without form of law,
for support of Indolence, Inefficiency
or, nectly worthlessness. The doctrine
is iirofonndly -swlalistic. ami It Is the
source aud the sign of tlie conditions
that make so strongly for Increase of
crime. If not chocked through revival
and growth of Itetter morals, it will
land onr poll'"' anJ elal system In
terrible conclusions. Look at the fig
ures that prove the enornous Increase
of crime, and judge, ir you can, how
long this burden cart increase at soeli
ratio awl ret carried by the coun
try. The root of It all is tlmt men
want things , without working for
them; and the political trder, the so
cial organization. relicSon itself, -'not
oolr em-ourage the want, but sn
lr"t it as a uw or less rightful
- O O
The Oresonian w riler touches, only
om of the t longs necessary to ls done
in order to decredse crime - and the
proportionate number of prisoners,
and only one phase of that, via: V re
formation of the public sentiment that
tends to excuse those who commit
crime. - There must le a reformation
of this kind, and there must Is? in ad
dition a change of public sentiment in
regard to the proinr treatment of
t hot e convict etl of crime. Four th.ings
must 1k doue. These are the four:
Public sen timet changed.
Environments of criminal classes
improved. ' .. -: - - "
Birth of criminals stopped.
The ... Oregouian writer has said
enough on one phase of the first re
iu!rementr But the other phase is in
regard to the treat incut of irisouers.
I think this point is; well illustranil
by a tight that s tiow going on In the
state, of New York. It is the fight of
the "yellow newsiKiier : press upon
Z. 1L Brockway, the super! nteudeut of
the Elmira Reformatory. That is the
model prison of the world. It was cre
ated by Brock way.'; First offenders In
the discretion of the committing mag
istrates, awd boys. for ment between
the ages of 1U tnd 3t years, are sent
to th? Elmira Reformatory, and thous
ands of young men have been turned
out to become useful "members of so
ciety, after being trained there. But
Mr. J'rockway has political enemies,
ami they have for years worked upon
the fceliups of the hysterical aud sen-linu-uial
through the "yellow" press,
charsins Mr. Brockway with luhu
leanily Iscause it has lscn necessary
for liiin to apply corporal punishment
to tlie young "toughs' cimiuit ttl to
his care from New York's Bowery dis
trict and elsewhere. This same fool
ish sentimentality has well nigh de
stroyed discipline In many Institutions
of the kind throughout the country.
I -conclude, public sentiment In these
two particulars must lw changed. It
most 1m? educated.
2. Criminals must be reforrmsl. The
old idea of vindictive or retributive
punishment must 1k relegated to the
dark past, from which it came. The
whole system must Ik made reforma
3. The environments of the criminal
classes must lo .Improved.; The brand
of cx-oon vict, must not bo ."burned into
the foreheads of accidental criminals.
This one fault of our society is worthy
of a chapter; of a Iwok. Worthy the
pen of a Victor Hugo lu his best days.
4. The birth of -criminals must lie
stopiKtL It must be' done as effect
ually as the birth of offspring from
Insane or Idiotic ihtsoiis is stopped,
and bv the same method tconriiiing
them for life), or a cheaiKT method.
I mean only the naturally criminal;
the morally Insane 011 ImliecUe. Not
accidental criminals. And stopping
the birth of the crlmiiurf) classes .will
help lo deerenBo the number of the oth
er 'deifcndeut classes; for the morally
and mentally sick, and the other de
pendent classes, are closely related.
Not always so. But lu a large proior
tiou of cases. . .
O O O
It is too oxitensive to raise -criminals
at the rate the Fuited Stales is raising
them. Too expensive to keep on re
producing, all the dependent classes.
And the expense is not all from u
purely ifuaucial jioiiit of view. It is
expensive lu detracting from the. lev
el of civilization.
