ANNUAL CONFERENCE O CHARI-
TIES AND CORRECTIONS.
Vice President Eckstein Ope ns the Pro-
gram Proper with a Paper on the
Tramp DiseaseTuberculosis and Its
Treatment in Dispensaries, Sanatoria
and the Homes Discussed Today.
Special to The Journal.
Faribault, Minn., Nov. 17..Those at
tending the thirteenth annual confer
ence of the Associated Charities and
Corrections of the state were welcomed
to Faribault at a well-attended meet
ing at the armory last night by Mayor
Orlotzbach and were offered the hospi
tality of one of the city's most pop
ular institutions by its president,
Thomas Quinn, on behalf of the
Faribault Commercial club. Dr. T. C.
Clark of Stillwater responded on be
half of the visiting delegates.
I the absence of the president, the
vice president, A. Eckstein, read his
address, which was the first paper on
the program. Its theme was "The
Tramp." One view of the tramp, Mr.
Eckstein said, is that the desire for
the primitive life remaining in all of
us obtains the mastery in him. W all
chafe under the restraints of the social
harnessth tramp, a person more sen
sitive than the rest of us, cannot tol
erate them, declares himself free and
lives the free life. Another cause: as
signed for the tramp's ways of life is
his love of nature. Then criminal ten
dencies are given as reaso ns for the
Having diagnosed the tramp disease,
the speaker proceeded to designate a
remedy, and in this connection spoke
in terms of high approval of an ordi
nance enacted in the county of Ren
ville providing work for tramps suffi
cient to pay tor meals and lodgings.
"In the' attempt to cure this dis-
ease," concluded the speaker, "we may
find it necessa ry to give up some social
and economic practices or the present
to which we are much attached. When
we have really awakened to the seri
ousness of the situation we shall be
ashamed to blazon the tramp's picture
in advertising matter on billboards,
shocked with the vagrant funny man's
attempted jokes in the newspapers and
disgust ed with the character of 'Hap
Hooligan' on the stage."
Drink and the Workhouse.
A this forenoon's session Frank R.
McDonald, superintendent of the Mi n
neapolis workhouse, read a paper on
Wdrkhouses,'' and submitted the fol
lowing figures, showing how enormous
ly the ranks of workhouse prisoners
are recruited from the drinking classes:
Total number received _.- 2,250
Total number committed for drunkenness' .1,556
For vagrancy 332
For larceny 137
For various other offenses 225
These figures do not show, how
ever, said Mr. McDonald, "the great
number of prisoners who se offenses oth
er than drunkenness are indirectly
traceable to liquor drinking, but fr om
what information I can gather those
convict ed for vagrancy and larceny
might be added to the great army of
1,556 committed for drunkenness. Thus
it is clear that intemperance in the
use of intoxicants is among the chief
promoters of poverty and crime and con
stitutes one of the greatest evils of

Treatment of Tuberculosis.
The Free Dispensary in the
Tuberculosis Patients" was the subje ct
of a strong paper read this afternoon
by Dr. George Douglas Head of Mi n
neapolis, who declared that the dispen
saries of the larger cities and those
which could be maintained in the small
towns of the state by local physicians,
with a lay managing board, would meet
all present demands.
"The free dispensary," he said, "is
the poor man's consulti ng doctor. I is
better to utilize this institution already
organized for the care of the sick poor
than to waste time and money in the
