all shades and grade to fight out their
battles. Local and Statclssnes prevailed.
Vice was as aggressive as usual, and vir

its own purity and make a redistribution

No one need expect any great reform to
result from these remarkable upheavals.
Some old influences are set aside, but those

undoubtedly discover that they arc made
of clay, very similar in texture to the mud

By all odds the most direct contest between

reform f usiorrtsts were so heavily sat down
upon that even the genius of Roosevelt and

of a satisfactory explanation.
Of coarse the Republicans will take great

on account ot present advantages, bat la

KEELE" AND HIS MOTOR.
Statements come from Philadelphia
sources that the Kceley Motor Company Is
about t be reorganized and that the New
-York millionaire, John Jacob Astor, is
to purchase the large interest In the so
cailed invention now oivned by tbe brilliant
Mrs. Bloomfleld Moore. It this be true the
company will be placed upon a more solid
basis than it has been for years, and the
public may learn something more of the
nature or this astonishing alleged discovery
which has excited the deepest interest
among scientists for long years.
It Is Impossible ti belicTC that Kecjey
is a fraud to the extent of playing upon
the interest and cupidity of scientists and
capitalists ail these years for the mere
notoriety he has gained from tbe capital
put into bis machine. There is reason to
believe that Mr. Keelcy has been experi
menting with a powerful force which he
himself has not been able to develop or
control to the extent of making It a thing
of utility. Skeptical Investigators have
witnessed the performances of the motor
and Lave come away favorably impressed.
Cautious capitalists, and notably Mrs.
Moore, have invested large sums in ex
periments. Mr. Keeley is yet to be proven
a fraud, deceiver and fakir.
Long years passed after the discovery
of tbe power of steam before that force
was utilized. The tremendous possibili
ties or electricity were undeveloped for ai
long perliKl after the practicability ot the
fluid was made manifest, and even at
this time it may be said that the utiliza
tion of it is in its infantile days. The
sensible wax to treat the Kceley experi
mentation is to give It every encourage
ment. It Is to be coped the promised re
organization will give a new impetus to
Keeley's efforts, and that he will take

of Gorman, or Gorman or Quay, than can
be found elsewhere In all the ranks or pro

PRISOI REFORM II EUROPE
lesult oflflp'ries Mo Systems Which
. Are In Yogae li Fweip Lands.
Machinery for Reformatory Em
ployment Is Almost Perfect In
tho Continental Countries.
In one thing prison reformers are practi
cally agreed, and that Is the need of entire
separation or prisoners in Jails where pris
oners are' committed for trial and wbere
they are often remanded to serve out short
Some of the worst sinks oriniquity in our
own country bave been and Btlll are our
county Jalis, where prisoners, old and
youug, have been Indiscriminately hud
dled together. It is l,ard ,tbeu, to keep tho
poison of crime Iroin pervading the whole
hucn Jails are' simply Institutions for
propagating tbe spores of vice, and tnany
ot our houses of correction are noPHuicu
better. In the model jails of Europe and
America criminals have uo contact when
ever with each other. Pains arc taken to
provide optional band labor of various sorts
In their ceils lor those who are awaiting
trial, as well as compulsory labor lor
those who are under short sentences.
The therapeutic value ot labor is thus
recognized as one ot the most Important
elements In prison discipline. The elforts
to abolish productive prison labor have
not seriously Interfered with the prlsou
systems or Europe. In England this agita
tion has led to the employment or prison
ers in the manufacture of goods for the
army and navy and civil service depart
ments. Without exception, prison reformers tbe
world over are agreed that the abolition
of prison labor would be a revival of bar
barism hardly less cruel than the renewal
or inhuman phjslcal tortures. Unproduc
tive prjal labor, such as turning the crank
and working the treadmill has. been abol
ished on the continent. But these still
exist In England. Tbey cannot be said to
be physically cruel as used there; they
are simply useless for the state and of no
moral value to the prisoner.
One of tbe most tharacterlstlc features
of European prisons as a whole is that
prisoners are allowed to have a portion,
of their earnings. This system prevails la
France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Kus
sU, Sweden, Detnark and other countries.
The amount earned by prisoners va ries con
siderably where It depends upon piece work.
In France, at the Malsou ivntraie at
Meiun, the average salary of the pris
oner is 1 franc, 78 centimes, or about 33
tents a working day. Of this amount the
prisoner Is allowed to pend one-half while
In prison for supiilcuientary fowl and cloth
ing, postage, etc., tliough no expenditure
is made without the approval of the ad
ministration. The other hair is reserved
until the time ol his discharge.
A three-years' prisoner lias to his iredlt

prisoner 70, ami a rive-years' prisoner
about 'J0. There is a great danger when
a prisoner goes out that he will waste his
accumulations unless they are properly
While in some countries tlie prisoner
Is left entirely free In this matter. In most
countries the sum is placed for him in
bank, under charge of some prisoners'
aid society or the mayor of the town in

of their earnings has long been In vogue
In the eastern penitentiary, and exists in
Minnesota ami Wisconsin.
England abniidum.il transportation in
18G7, when the last shipload of convicts
was sent to Western Australia. Transpor
tation still exists In France and Russia.
In Russia the system meets with strong
opposition fromsomeorthemot distinguish

that some of the most advanced prisoiire

and that is the work done for the dls

Switzerland leads the van.
She lias rourteen societies for discharged
convicts, and what Is most admirable Is
the system of appointing a patron for
each "prisoner who goes out. Thus aid
is not given .through money, Imt through
work and personal sympathy. The personal
relation of the matron with the prisoner
begins before he has left the prison. The
good rcsulu of this system are seen In the
great reduction of recommitments where

things we may well consider I should
name H centralized administration for
