Scene! from the Darker Side of Hu
manity In the Old and Dingy Hall of
Justice Make the Average Mortal
Well Satisfied with Even a Common
place Lot In the Social Scale The
Experience Which Followed the Re
search of a Lecturer.
Whenever sr-enes of m ualor. poverty.
crime or misery are mentioned or wit-
Deseil in Bcruiiton, wnicu lor several
years has worn the air of tho usual city
Bf a diversified population, the writer
Is reminded of the miserable panorama
exhibited daily lu the famous romus
police court tu New York. The low,
(missive, dlny and dank smelling old
buildlnif lends a tin in;,' background to
tbe sceue9 of Its Interior, and after
climbing the steps and turnliiK from
tlie dark corridor Into the darker
walled police court room tho visitor
must, in a measure, be prepared ror
the dismal side of humanity portrayed
within the enclosure.
Of New York's three police courts,
each has its peculiar constituency.
Ihe Yorkville court, a ay up on the
East hide Just west ot Third avenue,
gets the pauper crime overllowof the
upper tenement house district and
occasional effete cases from the resi
dential portion of the city east of Ceu
tralpart; the Jefferson Market court
on the West Side at Eighth s'reet ami
Bixth avenue receives the sensational
cases which bubble from the never
sleeping nnd famous tenderloin pre
cinct and gambling and sporting
But the oi aud dismal Tombs court
is more femous than them all: within
its arms are received tho bloody frays
and slime of the (treat sluum, the pair
perUm aDd degradation of the lowest
possible walks of life, and in the midst
of the filth, perhaps an embezzler or
hiufh life evildoer appears from the
brokerage and Wall street districts.
What an opportunity It oilers the stu
dent of human nature cannot be com
prehended. Out of a given half dozen
eases which are heard there each day
could be thrown search lights which
would reveal stories too pitiful, too
awful, too horribly real to be believed
The writer's business necessitated
frequent visits to tho Tombs and a
humorous occurrence is recalled which
shows what effect the sccues of the
court has upon feminine nerves. An
ollieial wi ll known in the Woman's
Christian Temperance union circles of
JNew lork state.wnile seeking material
for a lecture on intemperance among
the poor, visited the Tombs one morn
ing with two women friends. Through
the courteay of the justice l'atrik
Divver, I think tiie trio were given
seats inside the railing along the aisle
through which the prisoners are con
ducted to the cages ueneaiu niter sea
tence is propounded.
For a half hour they listened to the
tales of distress and degradation. When
one of the visitors rose from her seat to
more clearly hear the progress of the
cases, an officer admonished, her
against the contact with vermin
which during Ihe sessions falls from
many of the prisoners and occupies the
cracks and corners or the court turni
ture. The woman drew back with
startled expression and with her two
companions stood in tne aisle witn
their skirts raised and drawn closely
around them, 'lhelr period of nervous
ness terminated In flight when a dirty,
begrimed and filthy old creature, who
was being led to the cells, fell at the
feet of tho lecturer, and after throwing
her arms around the woman's limbs
began deliriously shrieking for salva
tion. The seeker tor lecture material
was carried fainting from the nom
aud it is not probable that the visit to
the Tombs was repeated.
Court opens each day, including
Sunday, at 8.:i0 o'clock, and until an
adjournment is made at 2 or 3 o'clock
in the afternoou, from CO to 125 cases
are heard. The justice fiom a list pre
viously prepared calls out the names of
tbe policemen in rotation ; each officer
with liis batch of prisoners gives testi
mony, the culprits also recite their
side of the cases and the squad makes
way for another batch. The number
is so great that the cases must of ne
cessity be disposed of rapidly, and the
order of proceedings after the officer
has been heard, Is something like this
between the justice and the unfortu
nate: "Mary, what have you to say for
"Well, you see, your honor, I had
just come from "
"Never mind where you came from;
"I had taken only a wee bit of
liquor, and it went to my head which
troubles me, since my old man died,
you know your honor, if you'd let me
go this time ready, y ur honor, it's
the first time "
"That will do; you were here last
wee. ; thirty days. Next!"
In the dead of the winter may be
peen a woman before the justice whose
head is unprotected save by a mass of
gnarled and uncombed coarse hair
striked with gray, the upper body
hidden only by a thin waist aud the
limbi covered with a threadbare skirt
and dirty socks. Perhaps the feet may
tie encased by sllppem,but Justas likely
the . stockings are the only protec
tion. During the hearing the woman
has perhaps pleaded with tears in her
eyes n t to be sent to the Island and
has called upon all the saints in the
calendar to bear witness to her inno
cence, but when sentence is pro
nounced she turns into a tigress of
fury and ia led away cursing and heap
ing vile maledictions on the head of
the imparl urable jimtice.
Budi is the court and such is a
glimpse of the scenes which make a
iuanfs blood boll, and, as he draws a
full breath of the fresher air of Center
street, make one thankful that he
exists in more respectable society, no
matter how humble his lot may lie.
As EniUahman Upon Jim Corbatt's B
BQlolictioa of London.
Evidently Jim ' Corbett waa like a
duck out or water in London, and it is
to be hoped that his highly polished
and scholarly article will at once be
brought before the British parliament
In order that immediate steps be taken
to' rectify those frightful anomalies
which the wonderful perspicuity of
our nnuie and gallant Jim has un
earthed, to wit:: "serving -drinks in a
rotten manner." What a blot upon
the great Union Jack of England. The
idea that "they couldn't give him
someming nt to drink" is positively
shocking and moves one to tears.
Neither did Jim think much of the
Euglish girls, but what an earthquake
it would be if they thought less man
"umcii" of Jim and cared still less for
his opinions. Note how quickly Jim
discovered that "the house of com
mons waB a big building, of course."
After that compliment we may expect
Gladstone over to America at once.
To show how thoroughly J" did
London and how he grasped t he main
points read his remarks: "liie ne-r.
thing in London was the music halls.
There wasn't much in Loudon that
impressed me. I went to see West
minister Abbey." Jim kuows all
about London, every historic building
and monument for he says: "I don t
tiling much of this tiling of chasing
around looking at things." No wonder
London Impressed him so mignuiy.
He met several lords, but they didn't
strike him as being anything out of
ordinary. It Is to be hoped that Jim
had concise ideas or an iuikiihii lorn,
inasmuch as it has been decided some
lime ago that an English lord is but a
man eudowed with human nature.
Latest advices from the greatest city
on earth state that .London nas re
gained partially the equilibiium it lost
over the visit of James J. Corbet t, but
probably not one in a thousand ever
heard of his name and less than one in
a million will care for his opinions.
Special Con-rniiontfi'iir.
London, Aug. 8. Special inipvrt-
ance is attached to the verdict of the
jury in the Albion disaster, inasmuch
as it is about the only case on record
where the management have been cen
sured. According to the evidence mere
is no doubt that besides negligence,
serious Infractions of the law and mine
regulations have occurred. The ver
dict is a blesslnar without doubt, as it
will be a salutary lesson to several
managers who la e their duties iu an
easy fashion mid delegate their de
partment to incompetent assistants.
The Welsh press has been very lively
recently. The l.ytulil, an l'jpiscopa lan
monthly, states that, they are of the
conscientious opinion "that our coun
try would be far more religious today
than it is without one chapel or
preacher within it and that the Nou
conformist ministers have had a hang
dog, fu lee and double faced look on them
ami are never happy without being con
tinually iu some commotion."
It is a consolatlou, however, to know
that this is but a specimen or the end
sions of the High church gang who
by their intolerant bigamy aud rancor
have done so much to make the old
church so unpopular. Will it easily
be credited lhat in their eyes it is a
sin to call a chapel anything but a
meeting house. The sight of a dis
scn inji minister wearing a white
"choker" will make them frenzy.
Yet another specimen of "High
Churchism": A churchman (?) writes
in the Linn advocating the continu
ance of church elementary schools
upon the ground that they are an ex
(client source from whence Noncon
formist children can be proselyted! It
is a frana confession but an idiotic one,
These ridiculous effusions bring
forth replies lrom the intolerant sec
tiou of the Nonconformists, for exam
ple, the Kev. D. Oliver Ldward-t, who
commences by calling the church the
old harlot and Her ministers "i
drunken gang," and ends up in lan
guage which will not bear reproduc
Terms are used by both factions iu
the "religious tight" which are a dis
grace to the Welsh language and at
times eclipse scenes depicted even iu
your Arizona Kicker. Une more speci
men of this week's Welsh press. An
Aberystwyth paper speaking of an al
leged portrait of the well known divine,
the Kev. Job Miles, in a contemporary,
states: "Excepting that the eloquent
preacher had what appeared to be a
black eye, a swelled mouth, and a
smudgy face, nobody could say that it
was not some sort ot a likeness."
The South Walians were proud to
bursting point over the number of
prizes which went to their teiritory
from the Carnarvon eisteddfod, but
alaa I heir joy is short lived as the els
teddfod statistics show that in the
musical competitions twenty-seven
went to the north and only twelve to
the south. All along the line the north
is triumphant, the totals beini', North

T NOW appears that the failure of
MJ.r General O. O. Howard, ol
the United (Mates rmy, command
int: tne nepaumerii or the At an
tio, to re lve an Inyltatlon to rc-vlim
the National Guard of Pennsylvania nt
Gettysburg was not accidental. Sec
relnry of War Dm Lninout was Inv
ted nnd ao wa Major General Scln
held, but no invitation was sent 1
General Howard, and his presence, i
is understood, was not wanted. Then
ia an intene feeling of bitternesi-
t'-ward Guimial Howard aniontr th
ofllrer of the guard, csusrd by th
crliu'l-iu of the punishment of Privai-
lama at Homestead for a leged treaaoi
able uneraiiccH. In this article, whie
wai publlhhed soon after that oeetii
rniee, General Howard scored tin
Pennsylvania mlllua and denounce
the punishment of Imns ae unlaw fe
cruel and suinething wlileh would n'
be tolerated in the regular army. Con.
mg as it did when Iho public wai
wrought up to a high pitch of excite
ment, the article created more or les'
of a sensation all over theoountry
H ca lug of this Incident Genera
ttnowden says;
''Gennral Howard's syndicate articli
on the Jams ease was not such as t
commend itself to the National Guaro
of 1'ennsylvanla or, so far as I eai'
learn trom a large number of personnl
lette.-s, the officers of the regular army.
General Howard said that apeaklrii
from the alanduoint of a Christian
soldler.the administration of disciplini
was uot jusiiueu oy military law. A
civil judge of Allegheny county (Judge
Porier', suld that it was. The arucb
waa published at a tine when Putin
sylvaula was in the throes of revolu
Hon, and at a time when the very ex
igence of discipline was threatened
Tiie article was ill-advised and open to
ceus'.ire, to say tlie least."
"Was it for this reason," the genera
was asked, "that General Howard wa
not invited to attend the encamp
ment?" "You can draw your own inference."
was General rtnowden's answer.
Just before lie startod for Gettysburg
General Gobln was interviewed al
Lebanon on the proposition of General
Sehofleld to increase the regular army.
Thl. is his reply:
"1 believe tlie regular army should
be increased to tho extent at least ol
oompletiug the regimental organiza
tion, as provided for in the new drill
regulations, by adding an additional
battalion to each one, thus making
each regiment consist of twelve com
panies, divided into three battalions.
This, of, applies particularly to
the infantry aud cnvalry. In the ar
tillery arm of tho service such impor
tant changes have been made and are
still being made in the cannon and
mWslles, aa well as the explosives, that
well drilled men thoroughly conversant
with all the details are absolutely nec-e-sary.
The training of artillerists is
evidently a matfcr of greater impor
tance than it has ever been, owing to
the distance at which the artillery can
be used, aa well as the improvements
iu powder nnd cartridges. To strength
en fortifications with improved arma
ment and not have the trained men
skilled in their use to care for them, is
simply wasting that much money, and
yet every coast fortification to be avail
able as a factor in the defens.' of the
territory it covers, must have this im
proved artillery.
"A maximum of 40,000 or 50,000
men,'' me t enerai nnneu, "would not
be too largo a standiug army for a
govt rnment Mich as ours, i eaunot
agree, however, witli General Kcho-
noid's iden of a flexible foree. Soldiers,
to be efTu-ient, cannot be gathered up
and enlisted whenever an emergency
arises, nor would it lie judicious, or
fa r to the men to discharge them after
the emergency had ended. Their very
enhstnieut, it occurs to me, would
cause a panic by creating the impres
sion that the president, at that junc
ture, deemed it necessary to increase
the regular army. That tlie army
should tie a positive recognized bod v.
as It now i, with sufficient men under
trained officer to respond to the call
of the president whenever under the
constitution lie is authorized to use it.
"Tbe militia of the states. I believe

in Ihe sia't9 east of the Mishislppi
and in niotof them west of it. The

will call upon them and use them efll
elen'ly, or if any particular stale
should be deficient the nre-ideut can

formance of their duties. This, it oc-
curstn me, la preferable and more iu
keeping with our syBtem of govern
ment. "Tho regular army, even though
composed of 50,000 men, could be use
fully employed without engaging in
the selllunent of troubles iu muni
cipality where state troops can be had
to aid the civil powers iu suppressing
disorders and maintaining the Jaw.
Of course, whenever state troops fall
to respond or the executive of any
stale refuses to call them out I believe
the president should use the regular
army wherever and whenever the law
authorizes him to do so."
