Th old hotel as originally built

Crime Not Increasing.
Minnesota's 25th annual prison cen

crime is increasing. Th figures col

year were confined in state institu

Th prison census for 1900 is about
the same as for three preceding
years, proper allowance is made
for unusual circumstances which pad
ded the figures without actually show
in an increased number of criminals.
A compared it the census of 1897,
the increase is only 16. Census deduc
tions are supposed to be valuable only
complied through a long period,
but the results forth past few years
have been such as to enable the state
board to assert that the facts do not
support a belief that pauperism and
and crime are growing evils.

Th law allowing the granting of
excuses under which children of school
age can work is said to be the most
objectionable. Th compulsory edu

school attendance at from eight to 16
years, and this is contradicted by the
factory a of 1895 and 1897 placing
the acre at from 14 to 16 years.
Public sentiment, according to the
labor commission, does not support the
enforcement of the child labor laws,
