N VIEW of the attack which has
bsen made upon tho constitution
ality of tho law establishing a
sepal ate court for jucnilo offend
eis, a statement of tho law's purpose,
scope and effect lecently picpaied by
Judge Iieltler of Philadelphia should
have educational Intel C3t.
"The act," he explains, "deals only
with chlldien under sixteen yeais of
age, and of these only with tho unfor
tunate and the cirlng. By Its terpis It
applies to 'dependent or neglected' chil
dren and 'delinquent' children. The
first class, tho act says, shall include
any child who Is destitute or homeless,
or abandoned, or dependent upon tho
public for suppoit, or who habitually
begs, or whose home, bj- leason of neg
lect or ciuclty or dcpi.uity of the par
ents, is an unlit place for a child, or
any child under eight jears of ago
found peddling on the stieet. A 'delin
quent' child, tho act cays, shall mean
n child who violates any law of tho
state or any oidlnance. The couit's
jurisdiction may be Invoked by a peti
tion which must allege that tho child
theieln icfeiicd to is cither dependent
or neglected or delinquent. Upon the
filing of the petition tho judge may
issue eithoi a summons or a wairant.
The former requites tho party having
the custody of the child to produce It
in comt; the latter imposes the duty
of biinglng the child into couit upon
tho officer aimed with tho wairant."
As a mattoi of fact, the judge con
tinues, eiy few cases aie bi ought Into
court upon summons oi wairant. "Tho
police aie constantly turning over to
tho Childi on's Aid society and similar
organizations chlldien who have no
homes or caretakei s. These chlldien
find their way into tho juvenile couit.
Then each cas,e is caiefuliy inquhed
into. The judge has the assistance of
the piior examination into the facts
of each case by the society and Its
agents. Sometimes the power of the
comt is imoked to compel the atten
dance of iclatlves or even ot patents.
After a c.tielul healing the ea&e of
each child Is decided and a decieo
made. The testimony ho.ucl is taken
down by a stcnogiaplici, and then typo
wiitten, and Hied for fututo icfeience,
If the judge is satirfled that the patent
or patents of a child ought not to lmo
tho custody of the child, but are able
to contiibuto to its suppoit, ho may
make an oider requiting tho payment
of such sum as tho circumstances var
iant. Chlldien aie sometimes turned
oer to lei.uives ana .sometimes to a
chat liable society, tcg.ud being had al
ways to the icllglon of tho child In se
lecting the soqluty.
"Delinquents gcneially come Into
couit from the maglstiatcs' offices,
sometimes diicctlj-, sometimes liom
piison. It is In the handling of these
cases that tho judge has the most deli
cate and dlfllcult tasks Imposed on him.
What to do with a bad boy is a ptob
lem as old as ume. If the wisdom ot
tho past had given us ono formula to
follow, the task would bo simple, but
tho question, evciy time It arises, Is as
new as when It was fiist piesented.
That some hoys, would bo better olf if
spveicly punished the fiist time they
lie or steal is undoubtedly tiue. The
met that tho way of the ttansgtessor
is haul ought to bo taught both as a
moial piccept and an actual fact. Still
tho question In cnciy case Is, How shall
this boy bo handled.' With the best
motives and the most caioful and pa
tient inquiry the judge can, at best,
but guesM. To send tho boy homo, and
do nothing more, ns was ttequently the
old way, is peihaiu to teach him that
the law Is not stem but lenient; to give
Use lu him to a feeling that after all
to olfend, to bo caught, to be taken to
couit, is not a seiious matter. To ro
fuso to send him homo Is perhaps to
tuko fiom him just tho Inllueuco which
will, with some ou'uido bupei vision,
make him a good mun.
"It is just heio that tho juvenile
couit act, In my Judgment, olTcts Its
.gieatest good, and opens up a now
ciliunca to deal Intelligently with the
boy's case. Instead of making the boy
piomlso to bo gooil and sending him
home tho court places him In chaigo
of n piobdtlon oillcer, and then lets
him go home,, Tho probation officer Is
tho child's fiiend, but tho court's ad
viser. Each boy Is kept under sur
veillance. If, after tho piomlso ho has
made to the court, ho staj-s away fiom
school (If puients can send him) or re
fuses to work, or goes with his former
associates, If they aiu bad boys, ho Is
warned, and If ho will not mend his
ways ho Is lu ought back to court, und
then the Judge has, more knowledge of
tho case to guide him in acting InteWl
gently in tho matter, Oho piobatloA

In a Nutshell.
(Mmlllo Kline in Philadelphia Record,)
f-ITAOnAY the sum total of Cuba's
H Impoits from tho United
I States is $20,000,000. .They are
chiefly lard, Hour, salt meats
and some machinery, fho remaining
$.10,000,000 of Cuba's Imports Is from Uio
F.uropcan countries.
All tho machinery which comes from
Great Bi Italn the foundries nnd machine
shops of the United States could sell.
All the rlco that pours Into Havana
fiom India, tho fields of tho Carolines
and Louisiana could supplj'. All tho
cloths that roll from French and Ger
man looms could find their wny to
Cuban wearers from tho factoiies of
Xcw Englund and tho Middle States.
California glows better wines than the
slopes of Castillo and Catalonia have
produced for centuries: while the shoe
fuctoiles of Massachusetts make high
class footwear that looks os well and
wears longer than the output of tho
factories of Majoica.
Tho offer of Cuba in her trade of to
day is cent per cent, for a clear ex
change. But this is for the present
alone. It is the calculation of the Cuban
government that within the next ten
years Cuba's imports will amount to
$200,000,000. Tho full volume of that vast
trade awaits tho giasp of the people
who are her neighbors. She Is today
the best customer of tho United States

In the Eleventh Indiana district, like
his elder bt other. Charles B. Landls,
the congressman fiom the adjoining
distiict, is a newspaper man. He
worked on tho same paper from which
Charles . graduated into national re
nown: and, like Chatles. his sliver
tongued eloquence has gained for him
a place among tho most popular of
campaign speakers and lecturets. Fred
for a time served as Charles' private
societal j'. A third bi other, a Demo
ciat, is a candidate for congress in an
Illinois distiict. Should he win, the
Landiscs would come pretty close to
forming a quorum. Theirs is a con
spicuous case of meiit finding its level.

Editor of Tho Tribune
Sit: Tho "antl'lmperlnllsts" meet us,
ns they did Alexander Hamilton In his
day, with tho accusation of "Imperialism"
lu connection with our Cuban pro
gramme, past present and future. What
nro tho facts? In 1831 wo offered Spain
$120,000,000 for Cuba. In 1S98 wo fought
Spnln-and freed Cuba nt an expenso of
$100,000,000 (all bills paid and nobody any
tho poorer.) Wo paid tho traveling ex
penses homo of tho Spanish soldiers. Wo
made tho Cuban soldiers a present of $3.
000,000 gold, and gavo tho suffering people
millions upon millions of rations. In less
than four jears wo rebuilt and extended
railroads nnd constructed hundreds of
miles of wagon loads. Wo brought order
out of dlborder, protected all Cuban
rights, kept nn army there to preserve
order, Banltated Havana, Santiago and
other cities and towns, opened 3.GC0
schools, and on May 20 we turned It all
over to the Cubans, without money and
without price. Where does the "Imper
ialism" ccme in?
These same "Httlo Americans" or
"anti-lmpcrlallsts" nlso say that we
threw away the $20,000,000 which we gae
for the Philippines. But did wo? Let us
seo what wo got for it, in valuable prop
ertj. to say nothing of tho Indirect ad
vantages of such ucres of immediately
good public lands, and many millions of
uercs or otner, lands which will largely
be good In time. The twenty or twenty
five larger and hnbitablo islands cover
150,000 square miles, equal to all our
states south of the Mason and Dixon line,
ana east of tho Mississippi, except tho
Virginias, Florida and Louisiana, with a
population of about the same. All this
adjacent dominion got nt ono time. All
Canada or Mexico cannot compare. Con
sider ono island Mindanao not ono of
tha latgest, nor best developed islands.
The same size as Ohio, with a soil as fer
tile os the Island of Java. Fifty millions
of acres of valuablo irgln timber to pay
for the clearing of tho land then to be
ured for sugar and other plantations,
producing ten-fold tho present pioduct of
tho island. Many trees 200 feet high nnd
often four feet in diameter, consisting
of maghognny, sandal wood and other
varieties of tho most valuable timber In
tho woild.
In their present undeveloped state, tho
islands suppoit 10,000,000 pcoplo In luxur
ious case. A few j-eais hence and those
Islands will bo as peaceful and product
ive as any of our states. Wo shall then
own a property worth as many billions
of dollars, us we paid millions. In other
woros, our investment will havo in
