Why .Are There More Young Crimi
nals Now Than Ever Before?
MORE MARCH JDVEH1LE TRIALS
la the Courts Than Could -be Counted Up
in Fire Tears -Back.
IB IT DDE TO MDEDEEEES' ESCAPES?
Since "hangm s played out in Alle
gheny county," the study of murder statis
tics will startle thousands who, to maintain
selfish comfort, never look on the dark side
of the picture. The last man hanged in this
city was a poor colored fellow, who had no
money of consequence to use in his defense,
and he was sent to glory before the old jail
was torn down, which was seTeral years ago.
Since then between CO and 109 people hare
been tried for murder, and- there hare been
many murders committed within he county
for whom no one has been tried. In this
respect it would seem, that criminals know
better how to work the telegraph and other
supposed thief-catching appliances than do
'Squire Patterson, who has been in the
Quarter Sessions Court about all the time
since the close of the Mexican War, ob
serves that, about 35 years ago, when Dave
Jewel was hanged for committing what
would now be regarded as a rather trivial
offense murdering a man in heat ot blood
this county was so excited over it that
the trial and final scene were an actual
hindrance to the prosecution of business.
People at that time took an interest in each
other, whether related or not.
IT DISCOUNTS A MURDER.
Kow a trial for assault and battery, where
the parties are in any manner prominent,
will draw more people to the lobby of the
Criminal Court than will the trial of an or
dinary murderer. There must be something
dramatic, or at least out of the usual order,
to draw. Stick a pin there, reformers.
The people who furnish business for the
criminal courts will not read tracts; and ate
not likely to get any good out of them if
It has been remarked by some observers
that the faces of the colored brother and
sister have been unpleasantly often ex
hibited in the Quarter Sessions of lata
years; but this is not to be wondered at
much, as this being a labor center, tough
citizens among the colored population
round about are drawn here more largely
than usual of late, aud frequently get into
trouble before they are assimilated. The
contrast has not been so marked of late as
during the December session.
But the most painful part of the picture
presented is the spectacle of so many boys
who are tried nowadays. 'Squire Miles
Bryan says there have been more boys tried
for crimes of nearly all grades this term
than during all the previous time he has
been connected with the court. The boy
Draper, who was sentenced for murder on
Saturday, was under 20 years of age. There
were, it is true, extennating circumstances
in his case, but it would seem that he had
used his "pop" without caring to inquire
very closely whether he was or was not in
ABE OLD OSXS REFORMING?
In view of the general juvenility of
offenders, one is tempted to inquire whether
more mature criminals are reforming, or
have they acquired skill to escape the law?
You can depend on it, in most cases that a
boy's mother, if he have one, will be in
court to say a good word for him, and Judge
ilagee is certainly "affording all the room
for reformation that it is possible for him to
give. Most of the boys have so far been let
off with sentence suspended over their
heads; but it Trill probably ie bad for them
if they get tack again. In some instances
the payment of costs is probably sufficient
punishment for parents who may have been
fjuilty of contributory negligence in the care
and education of the boys.
Uow this juvenile depravity does not
grow out of the immediate use of whisky,
though much of it may be the result of the
fathers having eaten sour grapes; possibly,
Ex-Warden Smith, whose connection with
the jail for a quarter of a century, makes
him authority1, also notes that more youths
have been on trial in the Criminal Court
this March session than in any five-year
Without attempting to discuss the matter,
it may be pertinent-to remark that, in the
opinion of many intelligent and observing
people, jhe diffusion of a modicum of edu
cation has not been followed by the results
anticipated. While it is true that the cities
present more numeroas and more alluring
vices to youth than does the country, yet in
the cities the schools are so far superior that
one might expect to note some improvement
in morals resulting; but such is not the
ABXORHAL BUBAL CAGES.
Though the county districts develop
here and there a monster of frightful mien,
such cases are abnormal, while in the cities
they seem to be a common product.
It is probable most people will argue that
the treatment must be prophylactic S. P.
O'Briei, Humane Agent, takes this view,
and he can give instance upon instance
where reforms have been effected through
the agency of the society in ferreting out
causes of crime. .Discomfort is a prolific
source. As a rule poor people have too
many children, but they cannot be con
verted to Malthusianism, and the sporadic
cases indicating a crude tendency in that
direction, which develops in the Crimi
nal Court from time to time, prove
nothing. Were the doctrine of the human
population restrictionist to prevail, it isn't
likely that the cause of morality and conse
quent happiness would be forwarded.
Neither tract nor evangelistic work of any
kind reaches these people,and it is extreme
ly doubtful whether they can be made to
admire the self-denial that Bends millions
to the Senegambians, etc., while squaloi
and crime tatten on conditions produced by
ignorance and sharp competition in the
These boys are not all the children of
foreigners. As a rule their faces are large
ly composed of the distinctive American
type which few, perhaps, can limn, bnt
which almost everyone recognizes at a
glance. Mothers' tears are wasted on the
young imps as they stand in the prisoners'
dock, and as they have no fear of being
furnished with wings by the hangman there
is no chord that can be touched.

1YHISKI AND HORSES.
How a Man May Violate the Natural Right
to Klde the Latter and the Acquired
Bight to Sell the Former.
The attendance at the Opera House meet
ing last night dropped away somewhat
John W. Moreland presided. The speaker
of the evening was T. W. Mills, of .Chicago.
He urged the importance of every man who
is opposed to the saloon voting for the Con
stitutional Amendment. If a man is op
posed to liquor and wants its sale restrained
by a high license, or by local option, or any
other plan except prohibition, the speaker
held it to be his duty to vote for the amend
ment; if he does not it counts for the sa
loon and helps to fasten the grip or the
liquor interests still stronger in the United
States. If the vote should be gotten out he
had no doubt of the result being all that the
temperance people couid wish.
Mr. Mills devoted considerable time to
the personal liberty phase of the question.
He said all men have certain natural rights,
but these carry with them corresponding
duties: A man can only claim' these rights
so long as he performes the corresponding
duty. A man has a natural right to ride a
horse; but it is his duty not to ride other
men's horses against the owner's wishes.
When he violates this duty he loses his
natural right to ride a horse, and is put
where he has no chances in this direction.
He applied the same argument to the black
smith and the farmer, following their avoca
tions, and then took ut the saloonkeeper,
asking what duty he performed toward so- J
ciety that gave mm a xounaauon to tuo
claim of a natural right to sell that which

ment. It was so windy and dusty that not a
very large crowd was In attendance. Mr. Price
only spoke for halt an hour, and was followed

meeting in the W. C. T. U. rooms, Moorbead
building, yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Bailey's
main argument was tor national prohibition.
The speaker characterized the struggle .as a

THE INCLINE RESUMES.
Judge Mellon' New Engineers Ready to
Go Ahead With Basinets.
Judge Mellon went to the Southside yes
terday and had a conference with the new
engineers employed to take charge of the
South Twenty-second street Incline. Start
ing with to-day the incline will run as
usual. An officer of the road said yester
day, in regard to the matter:
"If the old engineers had acted honorably
with us this trouble would not have oc
curred. They came to my house at mid
night one night and demanded an increase
in wages of 510 per month, and said if I did
not promise them the increase they wonld
not run the incline the next day. I was not
in a position to promise them anything,
and, while the matter was under considera
tion, they quit"
The gentleman stated that the new engi
neers were men with 10 or 12 years' experi
ence, and that everything had been ad
Slater and Brown, the retiring engineers,
claim that they did not quit, and they have
not left the city. They are still living on
the hill. One of the citizens on the hill,
who holds a monthly ticket, told a reporter
vesterday that the majority of the ticket
holders had been standing by ihe engineers,
and walking up and down the hill.

A SOUTHERN PB0BLEM SOLYING ITSELF
Mr. J. J. Hoblltzell, a firebrick maker
who has works located in Alabama and
works there a good part of the year, re
cently returned from one of his trips. He
was interviewed at the Monongahela
House. Mr.- Hoblitzell admits that what Io
do with the negro is a coming problem, but
he takes exception to some of the remarks
of Mr. Terry, of Birmingham, on this sub
ject, published in The Dispatch some
Mr. Hoblitzell said: "It is not true that
the Southern Republicans are a lot of 'scal
awags.' They represent some of the best
people in the South. Four years ago a
Southern gentleman told me that he was
one of four men who contributed $5,000
apiece to elect Bepubllcan Congressmen,
and yet he was not able to vote that,ticket
His neighbors threatened to ostracize his
family, and, rather than allow them to
suffer, he-voted with the' Democrats.
YOUNG BLOOD DBIVES IT OUT.
"But I find that this old spirit of animos
ity and strict arfnerence to one party is
wearing away. The young men of the South
are indeed progressive. They haven't time
to nurse old feuds, and, better than that,
they have no desire, to. Occasionally one
runs across an ancient Bourbou who is as
bitter as ever.
"I claim that the negroes could be easily
managed if the whites were so inclined. It J
is true mat wnen you go into one oi tne
black districts the people are very ignorant
and clamorous for office. Thev want
to rule before they are fitted for it by edu
cation. Many of them are quick and active
and learn easily. The whites say, Tou can
make us vote the negro; but yon can't make
us count his ballot' If you wttch the
ticket receiver closely on election day, you
will see the negro's vote dropped to the
floor. It hardly ever goes into the box.
This is how the work is done.
"Some time ago I was in Kentucky.
President Smith, ot the Louisville and
Nashville road, asked ineto go over two
routes they had surveyed in 'the mountains,
and give him my opinion as to which one I
thought was the better to catch the most
coal trade. I '

who the fellow wa.
" 'Oh,' he replied, 'our friend ahead of us
is a Scotch-Irish Methodist minister. 1 have
taken him along to preach to the people and
tell the moonshiners we are not deputy mar
shals. I doubt if we should come back
alive if I hadn't taken this precaution.'
"When we got into the mountains Fitz
hngh commenced to point out the places
where murders had been committed. We
were in the famous feud country where
whole families are frequently deci
mated"1 for trivial causes. Here some
body had been killed in a political fight;
over there a number had been massacred,
and we came across a church where, a short
time before, a regular fusilade of bullets had
been poured into the logs. I was
and I told Fitzhugh th'at if he kept on relat
ing his tales of blood I wouldn't go any
'"After a time we came to a point! where
the paths divided. Fitzhugh said it was
only three miles across the country to Sny
der's creek, hut it was nine miles
around by the road. He wasn't
sure that the moonshiners v-ould
permit us to take the short cut However,
we thought we would try it, and we hadn't
gone very far before I heard something like
the click of a trigger on an old musket be
hind me. Turning around I saw the bushes
part, and two moonshiners came out with
drawn rifles. They ordered us to stop. We
explained at once that we were not deputy
marshals, hut, whether they believed us or
not they were not willing to take any
chances. They positively refused to allow
us to pass through their territory, and we
had to go back."
