Both the soldiers or the North and South will read of the passing of
General Steven D. Lee, once a lieutenant general of the Confederate army,
with feelings of regret and respect for his memory. A brave officer, a big
nan, a fighter whom his opponents feared, General Lee left a record of which
the Confederacy might well feel proud. Now that all the wounda of war
days have been healed, Lee stands out as one of the finest type of the men
who made that war such a terrible thing, because of their bravery and reckles
daring on the field of batile.
The public. Republican. Democratic and otherwise, will be happy to
know that "music hath a charm to sooth" even a Congressman. A recent
newspaper dispatch reads as follows: "During a fruitless wait for a quorum
In the House, the members 'amused themselves by Indulging In song. The
trains of 'Home, Sweet Home,' 'Way Down Upon the Suwanee River" and
My Old Kentucky Home,' begun by some members on the Democratic side.
were caught up by others on both sides of the chamber and echoed through
the building. The member liberally applauded themselves after each selec
tion while the occupants of the galleries enjoyed the novelty." In the interim
what was being done with legislation?
Now that the Commercial club has taken up the matter of securing some
ort of a detention place for our bad boys, we may expect results. The Com
tnorclal club has a reputation for getting down to business while public meet.
Inga seldom do. The latter, are good enough to arouse public sentiment end
to start the agitation of a subject but they seldom result In anything more.
Pew Leo Die fully realize the problem which the bad boy has raised in this
-city. There are three youngsters now In a cell in the county jail, the oldest
of whom Is only eleven years. Those children are certainly not old enough
to fully realize the end to which their present life will lead them. They are
bright, clever boys, but their energies are all in the wrong direction. It
would be a crime against humanity to make criminals of them before they
reach manhood, all for want of a decent place to keep them and a competent
person to correct thorn. The police have been brought face to face with the
problem of protecting public property first and the bad boy afterwards. The
police are employed to protect life and property not to conduct a school for
the morals of boys. The question of raring for the bad boys of this city can
not be solved too soon. In passing The Citizen respectfully suggests that no
better man could be found to take charge of a house of correction than Dr.
C. E. Lukens, superintendent f the Children's Home Society for the rescue
of homeless children. Dr. Luken's name is brought before the publio by this
paper without his knowledge and only as a suggestion. There are, no doubt,
many competent people in the city for such a work, but by hi experience
and training, Dr. Lukens would make an admirable man for such a place if
lie would consent to act. As a city Juvenile Judge, he would use good Judg
went in dealing with bad boys and his knowledge of the youngsters would
tand him in hand. Hut the first thing now Is to get a detention home where
the pol-ee own send boy prisoners. No common Jail Is a lit place for children
