Judge Whitney Tells What
He Thinks Of
REFORM SC100L NEEDEB '
FOR FOOL PARENTS
POLICE JUDQE SEVERELY CON-
DEMNS LAW THAT SENDS
BOYS AND QIRL8 TO
The law whlch'conilemns to tho Re
form School a boy or a Rlrl who has
committed Rome cuch heinous erlmo
is running away from school or glow).
Ing when his mother tells him to net
a htirket of' water may bo a wise and
just law hut there are some people
who don't think so. As a law It must
be enforced, and when n boy or girl
Is brought up before thu Pollco Judge
charged with having violated the law,
there Is nothing for the Judge to do
but to commit the offender to the
school prison, It Is, rather. There Is
no other place to send the child. And
If his mother doesn't want to be both
ered with him what else U I here to
Hut tho Judge who has to try such
cases and make such commitments has
little respect for the very law that
he Is obliged to enforce.
Within thu last day or two there
have been told In the columns of this
paper thu stories of several children,
thu oldest one fourteen years of age,
who have been arrested and taken to
thu police station to associate with
the thieves, burglars and general riff
raff of society who are Incarcerated
there A number of them have been
committed to tho Reform School, It
went against the grain with Judge
Whitney to commit them, but, as he
says, the law allows him no other
"Take the .case," said thu Judgu yes.
terday, In referring to tho matter, "of
this boy Fred, llaposa whom I have
up today. He's not a had boy. Ilu's
not nearly as bad a boy as I used to
j Vt or as nearly all of us wore when
tjpwere boys. He doesn't like to go
"" lu school any more than most boys do.
Some time ago he stayed away from
hohuol for a day or so. Tba boy was
turned over to Father Matthew, and
for a' month he was as good as a boy
could be. Then one day bis mother
got mad at him and billed him In thu
eye. As a consequence ho had a black
'ye, and was 'ashamed to go to school
so he stayed out again.
"His mother declares she won't have
hi in about. Says If he comes Into the
housu she'll kick him out. So she
tomes up here to me and wants mo to
send the boy to thu Heforra School.
"What am t to do? Tho law says
for mo to send htm to thu Itcform
School But I know that If I ?nd I'm
thcte he wilcotae out n eioi dwl
r.-fi'se than he went to. A refota
scheol never referns. It only aafcta
erlnlnib. But I eah't sec:! the bay
bach to that Itlnd fit a heme and a
mother like that. There simply doss
not seem to be any place for the bey.
And he Is a good boy. too.
Then take the cat of this little
Sirl Rosn Hart whom I committed to
the Olrh' Industrial School yesterday.
t suspended her sentence today, so as
to give- her another chance. I don't
want to send her to that place. It won't
do her any good. It will only have
n tendency to make a bad girl of her
In the end. She Is only 12 years old,
end she hasn't done anything had. Hut
her home surroundings are bad, and
she ought not to stay there. I am hop
ing that some arrangements can be
made to find a better home tor the
girl, so that she will not have to go to
"There are cases Just like that com
Ing up almost every day. It Is a
shamo to send such children to a re
form school, but tho law makes no
other provision. Since the Juvenile
law went Into efTect there has been a
tohstant succession of such cases
come up In my court.
"1 think we need a reform school for
parents more than we do for children.
"We have a law for tho prevention
of cruelty to cutH and dogs. We bava
none for the prevention of cruelty to
children. A father can beat his child,
kick It, throw It out Into tho street,
and we can't do anything to him for It.
Tho law allows It. We have for a long
time been trying to get a law through
the Legislature that will protect chil
dren, but our efforts havu been use
less so far. I am hoping that wo shall
havu better luck next tlmo. We ought
to have some way of getting at these
turenta who Ill-treat their children."
Thu Judge refers to a matter that
has been attracting thu comment of
everybody who has anything to do
with thu Pollco Court. For some tlmo
ever since the Juvenile law went Into
effect, cases llku tho ones mentioned
have been coming up constantly. Par
ents who aro too shiftless or too lazy
to tako caro of their own children,
turn them over to tho police, have
them locked up In tho Jail and sent to
the Itcform School. Kven the pollco
ofllcers, who are used to such things
consider the condition which exists
nbomlnable. The Jail-yard of thu po
llco station they consider no place for
a child and anyone who will visit tho
placu and see the kind of prisoners
with whom a young girl Is associated
thcro cannot blame tho clerks and tho
Judge, who think that It Is nothing
less than an outrage on humanity to
lock a boy or a girl up In a place llku
that, usually for no crime more seri
ous than playing truant or swiping a
banana. Judge Deo Lindsay, the fa
mous Judgu of tho Juvenile court ot
Denver, says that tho reason some
boys are bad Is on account of fool fa
thers and fool mothers. There appear
to be other Judges, not a thousand
miles from Honolulu, who agree with

Yamada Ylnchlro, a Japanese who
lias been wanted for murder sluco Sep

thu remains wen taken In charge and

Impossible to ascertain thu causn of
death, but there Is every reason to be
Hove that Yamada killed himself Im
mediately after committing his mur
der. Yamada's vlcVlm was a Japanese wo
man named Mora. He cut her throat
cu both sides and stabbed her. Then
he disappeared and not a trace of him
could be found up to yesterday. Thu
body lay only a short distance from
where the murder was committed.
Thu murder was due to thu old Jap
anesu story of sale of wives. Yamada
told thu woman on a Saturday night to
another Jap. On thu following day,
In a fit of jealousy, hu killed her. The
coroner's Jury accused him of thu
crime and It is thought theru was am-
plo evidence to huvo sent him to the
gallows had he been arrested.
