THE WAYWARD YOUTH
" Who's Your Tailor?"
EVENING BULLETIN, HONOLULU, T H., SATURDAY, JAN 19, 1907.
11 HI !
The fact that a Iteform School Is
called nti "Industrial School" or roa
med down by any other puphwnlimi, or
that It la well liiaiiuged, does In no way
urfcet the pilnclplo under discussion.
I know nothing about the manage

we any right to tako the easiest way

If we deal with the boy at all, we
must remember that he Is a child; that
he Is huinnti, that he has probably moir
Rood than bad In his makeup but that
uliil honesty, but like well conducted
urljons, they exist only for n sad
necessity, A Kerurni School Is for the
earn and training of boys nud i;lrlit
who by reason of their acts are consid
ered beyond oi dliuiry control. Thoy
me so "bad" or so Ineorrlglblo thut
tho Slate takes them In hand, commits
them through Its police and judiciary
departments (which we all nnturnlly
shrink from) to u place whero they lire
deprived of their liberty us individuals,
for their own good presumably but nUo
lor the protection of the State,
The placo then Is for this class of
bos ami glrla.
Many of them are very "bad," thiev
ish, Immoral, criminally culpable. And,
na their age alleviates, they are sent to

ol an ollleer of the law, is a wrong nud
an Injustice even to u child who has

lime he may learn that these acts were
wmug and be sorry for them, hut he
will know also that either age or Ignor

exonerates him from permanent blight

lleeause uow-a-days we don't publish
nny more good) -goody Ixiy tules but
put down the facts of the case.
And if he becomes a physician or
takes up special studies or children, he
will know that the majority of boys
and Kills did thlni-s that were worse
lor them than truancy, deceit or lying,
anil that they did these, things not
from Inherent badness, but owing to n
natural Instinct uiigulded by knowl
edge. It should not take any ouu long. It
seems to me. to see that un Industrial
school cannot be the place for boyit and
girls who lire merely mischievous, haul
to control, dlxohedlent, wilful, deceit
ful, liars, or without natural guardians.
H children not bad have "vile." homes
and catches more files; and that by thu
pioper attitude coupled with tho neces
sary sympathy and training, wo cn:i
develop so much of thu good that the
bad will not signify so far as the lad's
genera! character Is concerned.
Knowing this as Intelligent parents
must, which of them would bn willing
to send even n truant to an "Industrial
School" for Improvement?
Ask Governor Carter or V. O. Smith
or Dr. Moore or any other MAN lr he
would he willing to put his most dis
obedient boy or tlrl In the charge ot
the best managed lleform School in
tho world! And yet, there is no differ
ence, for these good people might have
n child who would piny the truant, bo
deceitful or "sauce" his betters. I cit
ed the cflbo of ltaHisa because he had
been mentioned. All that ho Is said to
be is no worse than what we know of
some or our best men who didn't ro to
the lleform school. They played tru
ant time and again; they pot only ito
celved thev lied; they even stole like
T. 1). Aldrlch did and Mark Twain
Lincoln ran off three times to escape
doing a bit or work he didn't like, and
Phillips llronks dear, good l'lillllps
llrooks "took the wrong way to
school and spent the day fishing In a
running brook two miles away." Why
didn't they rend him to nn Industrial
School? Thank the Lord he had some
body that aired enough for him to pa
tiently disentangle these ktuks In a
Jry human skein.
Someday when I get time I am going
to give you n list of some of the "hud
things good boyH have done that Is,
bad boys who grew Into good men.
And tho list will startle you who

In a different way 'tis the same with men. The poorly dressed is snubbed. I lis clothes are
taken as his market value, and 'tis money that does the talking. The man whose clothes are cheap
looking is called a "man" even by the children and he with the swell raiment is classified a "gen

Character, honesty and the cardinal virtues cannot be put on the surface, (and they do not suf
fer by association with good clothes), so for lack of something better, for the lime being, at least,
the world judges a man by what he wears.
