BOIL VALUES FOB CROPS
"Physical Features of Polls which
Influence Their Ability to Feed Crops"
was the subject of Dr. F. H. King of
Madison, Wls. He spoke of the effect
of water in the 801 l and uttered a
warning against the excessive use of
sodium nitrate for fertilizer, pointing
out that It leaves in the soil a black
alkali which in time will prove ex
tremely harmful. He regards surface
irrigation practically useless with Its
evaporation and passing over the soil
without depth of moisture. He advo
cates the storing of water In the win
ter. He claims that thirty feet of
gravel will store ten feet of clear water
which cannot evaporate.
Prof J. H. Norton spoke on "The
Management of Citrus Orchard Soil
During Fall and Winter Months."
Regret was expressed that Dr. Cyril
O. Hopkins of the University of Illinois
was called home on account of the
serious illness of his wife. Dr. Hop
kins is one of the greatest agricul
tural authorities in the world.
In the Riverside district the party
spent four days beginning September

Highland and Redlands, and a day be
tween Rlalto and Los Angeles. They
devoted one day to the district of Snnta

ROLLS TO BE DUPLICATED
The board of supervisors granted the
requ»»i'. of County Assessor Hopkins
yesterday that a duplicate copy be

Frank R. Willis Finds Humane
Treatment of Convicts Be
CRIMINALS TAUGHT TRADES
In Colorado Prisoners Work on
Roads and Are Given Part
of the Earnings
That the public Is becoming more
rational in its treatment of criminals
is the opinion Frank R. Willis, Judge
of one of the criminal departments of
the Los Angeles county superior court,
brought back with him from the east,
where he has Just completed a visit
of six weeks.
He found a general betterment in the
treatment of prisoners in the many
penitentiaries and reformatories he in
spected, and he is firm in the belief
that a municipal farm for petty of
fenders and a model state reformatory
for criminals serving their first terms
are greatly to be desired.
Among the institutions the Jurist
visited were those at Canon City,
Colo.; Charlestown, Mass.; Jollet, 111.;
Elmira, N. V.; Anamosa, la., and San
Quentln, Cal., where he stopped on the
"The penitentiary at San Quentin,"
said Judge Willis, "is about as good as
any in the United States, and it is
being Improved all the time. The new
wing, containing 850 cells, and now un
der course of construction, will remedy
the defect of having more than one
man in a cell.
"At Elmira, N. V., the Inmates are
being taught useful trades, everL such
high-classed occupations as printing
and bookbinding. The illiterate prison
ers also are being instructed. Many
who could neither write nor read when
they were sent there a year ago are
LEARNED A TRADE
One prisoner there, a Russian, wrote
a letter to the warden, saying that he
was glad he had been sent there, as
he has acquired an education since
being incarcerated, and he feels now
that when he is liberated he will be
come a useful American cHizen.
"At Anamosa, lowa, there is a plan
for paying the prison/rs for any labor
they may perform after regular hours.
By that a man can lay aside from $8
to $15 a month and have something
to start life upon when he finishes his
"In a Pennsylvania institution,
where the same saheme is being used,
one man, seat up^r eleven years, and
who still haa seventeen months to
serve, has a bank account of $140.0.
"Public interest in effenders is shown
by the improvement in prisons. At
Charlestown, Mass., part of the prison
is 100 years old., The cells are mere
holes In the stone. This is being
changed to separate rooms for the men.
In the new cells they have electric
lights, musical instruments, books,
mechanical Instruments, the privilege
to arrange the apartment as much
like home as possible, and In addition
are given good ventilation.
PUT ON THEIR HONOR
"The men who are accorded the
greatest amount of freedom are the
ones who are most easily controlled.
That is especially true of Canon City,
Colo, where the prisoners work on the
roads, take pride in their work and are
paid 35 cents a day. None try to
"It is only right that the prisoners
should be given some remuneration for
their work, because otherwise when
they end their sentences they have
only the $5 given them by the prison
authorities, together with a cheap suit
which is as much a mark of their
previous confinement as if they still
were clad in striped garments, and a
ticket by the cheapest route to the
place where they were sentenced. By
the new rule the men are able to do
as they please when liberated. Why,
in some eastern penitentiaries they can
pick from four or five grades of cloth
ing and have a suit made by some
fellow prisoner who is a tailor that
cannot be told from the work of any
"At Cleveland, Ohio, there is a
municipal farm which does away with
the chain gang. There the men are
given the chance to brace up and re
tain their self-respect."
While away Judge Willis visited his
aged mother at Cedar Rapids, lowa,
and passed two hours at North Adams,
Mass , where he was born and which
his parents left while he was a mere
babe in arms. Nevertheless, he took
interest in a brief inspection of the
home of his fathers, the house having
been built in 1812 and being the place
where both his father and his grand
father were born.

thieves were enabled to steal Chinese
gold and Jade Jewelry valued at $764.50,
which was on display in the window.
The glass was broken with a heavy
instrument which had been padded.
That the Job was done by a profes

the greater part of the glass foil on
the inside of the window and not on
It is believed by those working on
the robbery that the persons respon
sible for the Sing Fat robbery are
those who smashed the window at the
Donovan-Seamans Jewelry store at
Third and Spring streets a few weeks
ago escaping with loot valued at $600.
The Indian Village display windows,
located near Eastlake park, were
broken Into in the same manner as
that of the Sing Fat establishment,
and $1000 worth of Navajo rugs and
blankets. Indian bracelets and curios
stolen. The theft was reported to the
detective bureau yesterday by Antonio
Apache, manager of the village. Only
the best Navajo rugs In the stock were
stolen From a close Investigation of
the grounds it appears that the rob
bers carted away their loot in a wagon.
Fourteen offices in the Union Trust
building were entered by a pass key
thief during Saturday night and Sun
day morning, but nothing of great
value was stolen. The offices entered
were located on the sixth and seventh

the offices were pried open with a
Jimmy but nothing except stamps and
a small bit of change were secured
out of the fourteen offices. The matter
was reported tonhe detectives yester

Gen. Miles Says Aviation Impor
tant Factor in Warfare
DENVER, Oct. 3.—"The aeroplane
eventually will be a means of coast
defense," said Gen. Nelson A. Miles,
who arrived here yesterday.
. "Aeroplanes can be built by tne
score for what one battleship costs,'
he continued. 'Their use would cur
tall greatly the expense of building
coast defense vessels. When aero
planes can fly 100 miles out to sea ana
drop explosives over hostile fl' ets,
these fleets will be cautious about at
tacking a coast. And this condition
"Already any nation which goes to
war must reckon with the aeroplane.
They would be extremely advanta

from injury by rifle shots."

At the Lanark meet upwards of 200,-
COO persons paid admission. Most of
