At tho present day, when sympathy
for tho prisoner is an emotion more generally
felt than ever before, tho question
whether tobacco shall be given to convicts
is distracting tho Philadelphia
mind. Tho Board of Inspectors of
Prison, in that city, recently
camo to tho determination to cut off tho
tobacco supply. The ground taken was
that tobacco is a luxury and that J
are not entitled to luxuries. Dr.
"Wistar, a leading physician fn that city,
advanced the proposition that
on tho whole, wero better with
than without it. When they were
deprived of it their health became impaired.
But it is not worth while to inquire
whether this impairment was not
merely temporary, duo to the sudden
withdrawal of stimulus.
Tub Philadelphia North American
says very good things relating to commerce,
trade and tho business condition
of tho country, nnd'its ability 1o judge
of each and all such features pertaining
to tho thrift, peace and prosperity ofthe
nation is recognized late issue
contains tho following cheerful words:
Trade may not have tho volume it hntl
at this time a year ago, hut more men
stand with their feet on solid ground
than could have been counted then. In
fact the volume of trade is good, though
.profits may not be as larre ns traders
like. The seeming ineitiaof stocks may
bo taken as a sign that we are at last
nearing hard-pan, and if anybody tumbles,
he will not have far to fall nor"ill
he carry very many with him. We see
no good reason why persons who have
money to spend should not spend it.
How Soldiers are Snludled by PeuMou
A despatch from Washington to the
Courier-Journal says: Judgo Ferris, Second
Auditor of the Treasury, in his annual
report, exposes tho methods by
which, soldiers of tho late war and the
Government are being swindled by unprincipled
attorneys nnd agents. He
eays not ono in ten applications for arrears
of pay and bounty possess nny
. merit, nnd not one in twenty of all these
claims is filed upon the suggestion or by
tho voluntary action of the claimant.
Attorneys seek a client, nnd represent
to the uninformed, more generally colored
soldiers or their heirs, that they
t have not been paid all justly due them ;
that some new law, or new construction
of tho existing law, entitles them to
more bounty, or further pay. A small
fee in advance is required, generally $2
or $3 sometimes more; in fact, all that
can bo got, with the promise that no
more will be dennnded unless tho claim
bo allowed. The fee is allowed, tho
filed, and in tho end rejected.
Tho attorney inroly looks after tho
claims. It does not pay. He has received
Ids little ndvauce fee, and it pays
better to hunt up moro victims. Tho
soldiers nro swindled, and after their
claims are rejected frequently denounce
tho Government and its officers, who
simply administer tho law as they find
it. Another class of worthless claims is
constantly increasing namely, claims
for bounties already paid. In many of
these cases denials of former payments
uro made under oath, when tho records
of this office, kept in the highest manner
known to tho law and courts, show conclusively
that the payments wero mado
years ngo. To perjury is sometimes
added forgery, and tho timo since tho
war increases tho chances of success
to perjurers and forgerers. Should
these records bo destroyed, and such
a calamity is not beyond tho palo
of possibility, tho Government will
certainly bodefrauded out'of millions of
