CAPL- WEIGHT'S CHIEF REFORMATIVE
Did it ever occur to the reader that the
great body of the criminals, the felons in
AVestern Pennsylvania's principal prison,
were contributed from among the adherents
of Christian Churches? 'Well, it's a fact,
account for it as you may. The biennial re
port of the Western Penitentiary lies open
on a desk before the writer, and it not only
cays so, but gives the interesting figures to
prove it. The report, addressed by In
spectors Kelly, JlcCutcheon, Kced, Slagle
and Trimble, and by Captain Edward S.
"Wright, warden, to the Legislature, is just
completed and ready for perusal. It covers
the period from January 1, 1887, to De
cember 31, 1888, and is full of very in
For example, with regard to the religious
contributions alluded to above: The report
shows that, of the 262 prisoners received at
the penitentiary in 1887, 85 were Catholics,
73 Methodists, 20 Presbyterians, 20 Luther
ans, 19 Baptists, 12 Episcopalians, 5 United
Presbyterians, 4 Campbellites, 3 United
Brethren, 1 Hebrew, 5 of other religious be
liefs, and only 9 mark the number of no
religious belief whatever. That's a mighty
good showing for the agnostics, dead sure!
Just think of it! Less than 4 per cent of all
the prisoners among 262 felons, who had no
religious connection or belief whatever; and
the others, each and every one of them, in
the penitentiary as the representative of
some church. For 1888 the ohowins is not
significantly different: Catholics, 8fi; Meth
odists, 79; Presbyterians, 30; Lutherans, 27;
Baptists, 16; Episcopalians, 8; other reli
gion's beliefs, 10, and of no religious belief
whatever, 10, out of the 2G6 prisoners re
ceived during the year still less than 4 per
SOT ABGTJMEKTS AT ALL.
These are the simple yet astonishing facts.
The champions of religion will not argue
therefrom, however, that churches and
church association were a stimulus to this
great pronortion of crime, but, on the con
trary, that these hundreds of sinful hangers
on had really absorbed or exercised nothing
but that slender faith which, as all the
churches teach, must be dead when unac
companied by works, by abstinence from
sin and crime.
Having learned thus how the churches are
represented among criminals, perhaps the
reader would like to know what classes of
foreigners, or rather what nativities, con
tribute most largely to this prison's popula
tion.'' "Well, here are the leaders, at set
down in the official report, for the two years
in which 528 prisoners were received : Ger
many, 35; England. 24; Ireland, 23; Italy,
9; Canada, 5; Scotland, 5; Wales, 4; Sweden,
2, and Hungarv, Belgium, Poland, France
and Switzerland. 1 each. Of the 28, 273
were born in the Keystone State, 41 in New
York and 16 in Ohio.
"But," aks some very inquisitive reader,
"are most of those felons educated origno
rant?" The chances are, if left to "answer
his own-question, the rehder would answer
it by guessing wrong again; for, in this re
spect as in many others, the report is an eye
opener, a painful surprise. Out of the 528
prisoners received in the two years, onlv 46
could neither read nor write, 66 could both
read and write imperfectly, and 416 were
among the readers and writers to whom the
word "imperfect" need not be attached.
That's bad, isn't it? Then 483 of these had
attended the public schools, while think of
it only 45 never went to schooll "That
just shows what effect learning has on a
mind that is really criminaHy inclined; it
affords 'ue criminal tools with which to
work," does someone say? Perhaps. On
the other hand, what sort of weapons does
it pnt into minds not criminally inclined
the minds which makeup the va'st majority?
MINERS, CLERKS, CABPEJfTERS.
Sow do. von think you can guess what
tradespeople are most numerous in their
contributions to the penitentiary? Two to
one you can't It's so unstable, this line of
6upply; it varies so. In the two years coal
miners take the lead 15 in 1887, and 18 in
1888. But clerks were a bad second to the
miners at the 14 in 1887, thongh they tall
away to only 6 in 1888. "Would you ever
suppose, tnougn, mat carpenters would
stand on the third round from the top in
the criminal ladder carpenters, the follow
ers of the trade at which Jesus of Nazareth
worked? Yet they do. There were six of
them taken in in 188, though only four
men could be counted who registered as
having no ocenpation, as absolute vaga
bonds. Then there were ten carpenters re
ceived last year; but only two vagabonds
among alLthose criminals. There were, in
the two years, 184 "laborers" received, to
be sure; but then that term, as applied to
avocation, is so broad as to include almost
every able-bodied man who has no trade or
profes'sion. By the way, only four "pro
fessional men" were received in the two
years 1 architect, 1 schoolteacher, 1 sexton
and 1 book agent
Before getting down to theories, here
are some more of the hard facts in the re
port: The inspectors ask to have the Legislature
appropriate for the uses of the penitentlarv in
1689-90: For finishing the south wing, 120,000;
for two years' salaries, $70,000; books and sta
tionery forlprisoners, $1,000. "And the usual
gratuities to discharged prisoners."
The number of prisoners confined in the pen
itentiary January 1, 18S7. was 707; January L
1R88. C97; December 3L 1SSS. 683. Of the latter.
609 were white and 61 colored males, 8 white
and 5 colored females; 163 single, 93 married and
The favorite, or at least the particular crimes
for which prisoners were committed, were
thoe against property 184 there being only
82 crimes against persons, or acts of violence.
Larceny, burglary, forgery and counterfeiting

of victory, numerically, an "unlucky 13" of
them having "been rep eved last year 12 for
second degree and one .first degree under com
mutation, to remain for life. The long sen
tence men who came last year yielded 1 for 25
years: 7 for 12: 3 for 11, and 7 for 10. During
the vear 25 gpt in under second conviction to
this prison, 9 under third. 2 under fourth and 1
nnder fifth. The average population of the
prison for 1888 was 661: the highest, 702.
There were idle in the prison at the close of
the year 78 persons, the others being mainly
employed thus: In matting shops, 412; at iron
work on new building, 34; laborers and sweep
ers. 41; cooks, 9,ctc The prison has discharged,
since its opening, July L 1826, 8.S31 prisoners, of
whom 1,022 have been pardoned, 236 have d cd,
4 have committed suicide, 33 escaped, 15 have
gone outon habeas corpus and error writs and
39 have gone to insane asylums.
Now for extracts from the report combin
ing both fact and theory in most entertain
ing and instructive form. The inspectors
Large cells havo been provided in the new
wing, according to the original plan, or promo
tion for good behavior. As the building ap
proaches completion we begin to realize tho
vastness and extent of the work entered upon
Foine ten years ago, and we congratulate the
State upon the possession of a structure which,
when finished, for beauty of design, excellence
of workmanship, strength and adaptation for
prison purposes, wilt be unsurpassed upon this
continent, if not in the world.
An important question demanding legislation
ha recently arisen. On.the eastern side of the
Snson projwrty Messrs. Hartman and Petrel
a vc laid out a plan of lots In such a wav that
the rear of said lots adjoin the outer walls of
"rl,3,,u' auiois notoniv a direct menace to
the stability ot the wall, but to the security of
the prison. All efforts of the board to per
suade these gentlemen to change their plan so
as not to endanger the prison property have
been without avail, and after consultation with
the proper authorities we have concluded to
ask for legislation to authorize the Governorto
purchase for tho Commonwealth a strip of
ground upon said prosperty that will be sum
cientto prevent intrusion and injury. With,
reference to the important subject of
LABOR IN THE TRISON
we desire to say that what is known as the
"public account" system is now in operation.
Usually an adequate appropriation is granted
for plant and material, but our effort to secure
such an appropriation at the last meeting of
the Legislature was unsuccessful, and great
difficulty has been experienced for want of
To meet the requirements of the law of 18S3,
abolishing tho contract labor system, the Board
of Inspectors were compelled to face the ques
tion of employment for the prisoners commit
ted to their charge, who were thus thrown idle,
and, after careful consideration, they selected
the manufacture of cocoa mate and matting.
Notbwitbstanding the strenuous efforts of
the warden and other officers who have taxed
their ingenuity to the utmost to find employ
ment for all the prisoners, yet, as before stated,
it has been Impossible. For these unfortunates
this is virtually re-enacting "solitary confine
ment without labor," which is illegal and in
human. But we congratulate ourselves that
we are not so badlv off as some other States
(notablv New York), which, from inimical and
unreasonable legislation, has its whole prison
population in idleness a condition alike dis
astrous to the prisoner and society and very
expensive to the taxpayer, and which, upon
anv economic theory can at best be considered
as the minimum of protection, at the maxi
mum of cost
The three great factors in prison manage
ment and reform are labor, learning and re
ligions service, and without the first the others
become larcely inoperative. 853
Warden "Wright, than whom there is be
lieved to be no more practical or efficient
prison manager in America, speaks of the
$150,000 that has been saved to the State by
utiliziug convicts in the construction of the
handsome new bnilding, and then has this
to say of a reform that he wonld like to see
A CLASSIFICATION SCHEME.
One of the most prominent features In prison
treatment is separate cellular confinement at
labor, cither in the cells or otherwise, as may
be provided. For many years it has not been
practicable to carry out this direction of the
law, as there have been more prisoners than
cells. Sow the conditions are reversed, and
proper legislation will doubtless be enacted
suited to the case.
Separate confinement is Tin itself a crude
form of classification, butnot all that is needed.
Other details, strengthening its force, are easily
added when that essential feature is secured.
A prisoner may be described as a lost citizen,
whose recovery is earnestly desired by his fam
ily, friends and society. If he belongs to the
ranks of accidental criminals much may be
none for him by a firm yet kindly method of
control. If he is to he trusted when again a
free man, the State should trust him while in
Classification should be tried in at least one
of the penitentaries of this State. It is not an
experiment although of slow growth; and for
the accidental criminal, more than any other,
means "the slow opening of the closed hand,
the gradual restoral, not by a foreign power to
which he has been given way, but-by humanity
itself, which has held him for a time in a
special care, and now gives him back to her
self, to her own normal life, this prisoner whom
she has never ceased to think of and treat as a
HIS FAITH IN KENNA.
A I'ittsbnrgcr Returns from Washington
With Several Ideas.
Messrs. Samuel Bellman and 'Samuel
Houston, of Butler street, have returned
from a trip to "Washington. Speaking of
politics in the capital city, Mr. Bellman
"It is the general opinion of Democrats,
and many Bepublicans, that Kenna, the
Democratic candidate from West Virgina,
will be re-seated, as there is practically very
little opposition to him.
"The inhabitants of the capital seem to
attach very little importance to the Samoan
affair, as it is not discussed very much.
"The principal talk is on the tariff bill.
In regard to the final vote on the latter, a
curious mistake occurred. Biddlcberger,
the Republican, had paired with a Demo
crat on the preliminary votes, saying to
him, 'Let us pair nntil the final vote,' mean
ing -until before the final vote. The Demo
crat however, took another meaning ont of
it, and kept up the thing even on the final
vote. As this was very close, it might have
resulted differently had Biddleberger done
as the Democrat did."
ALLEGED BDEGLARS CAUGHT.
A Brace of Yonncstown Crnclunren Captured
Ont in Sharpsborir.
Saturday evening Inspector Stevens, of
the Southside, received a telegram from
Toungstown, stating that two Poles, thought
to be in this city, were wanted on a charge
of stealing $350 and two gold watches.
The Inspector located them in Sharps
burg yesterday, and, early in the evening,
had them lodged in the Twenty-eighth ward
station honse, subject to advices from the
Youngs town authorities.
Enterprising Little Wash.
The first number of a bright little paper,
the "Washington Journal, contains an inter
view with the parties who are pushing an
electric light company in opposition to the
home company. They say they will not use
the Westinghouse system, as they are afraid
ot the Supreme Court decision that was al
leged to have given Edison the preference.
They also claim an electric railroad will
be run in connection with the plant
A PROMISING NEW FIRM.
Crumrine, Bane & Basset!, Successors to the
Paper Dealer, Tbomns Palmer,
Among most business men, who have
spent a life's energies in building up a trade
and establishing the reputation of their
house, when their career nears its end, there
seems to be a strong revulsion against trust
ing the business in other hands, with other
minds than theirs directing the affairs of
their pet schemes which to them have been
as children, watched and nursed from their
infancy. They seem to forget that pro
gressive America continually calls for new
blood, new energy to k'eep pace with the
ideas and desires of the new customers that
a business house must constantly add to its
rolls to assure its very existence.
If the late Thomas Palmer, Esq., of the
wall paper and decorator's honse, ifo. 416
Wood street, had any such scruples as these,
after a business career of nearly 40 years in
that line, the present firm, which has taken
charge of the business, indicate that the
reputation of the house will not deteriorate,
but advance beyond the hopes of its former
The new firm is composed of Mr. Kennedy
Crumrine, Mr. A. Clark Bane and Mr.
Geoige A. Bassett, under the title ot Crum
rine, Bane & Bassett, who will continue the
business at the old stand and make many
additions to their large stock of wall paper
and decorators' articles, both wholesale and
retail, as the styles and new departures in
that line shall demand. They are all ex
perienced men in the business, Mr. Crum
rine having been in the business in Steuben
ville, Mr. Bassett being connected with him
and Mr. Bane having had eight years' ex
perience as agent for Pusey & Kerr, to
gether with otheTtxperience in the whole
sale trade, which he will use to advantage
as manager of the wholesale department.
The firm already have a large stock on
hands, including the bon-ton of the wall
paper buyer's and decorator's art, and are
renovating and enlarging their storeroom
capacity, with a view of likewise increasing
their power to please their patrons and the
many they yet hope to consider such. In
this respect they have taken hold with a
will, and deservedly ask a share of the pub
lic patronage of those wishing anything in
the wall paper or decorator's line, either re
tail or wholesale, and respectfully solicit a
call of such, or notice at their rooms, So.
