A PRISONERS'' AID ASSOCIATION.
No single step has been taken in
the work of forming tihe cnim'in.il
class more important than the or
ganization of a prisoners' aid asso
ciation, which has jus/, bean conclud
ed. It is supplementary to the re
formatory and parole systems, and
without it they have been necessar
ily deprived of an opportunity to do
thair best work. The most critical
time in the life of a man who has
been imprisoned for some offense is
Ithe day on which he regains hiss lib
erty. It may be that he was orig
inally new to crimi?, and that his ex
perience has filled him with a desire
to become a -useful and law-albiding
member of society. He comes out
wi.h the prison taint upon him.
Wherever he seeks employment, if
his antecedents are inquired into,
this experience of his Is fatal. He
finds himself a marked man; whose
'best chance of escaping from hiis un
happy notoriety, and of mingling fin
the ranks of his fellow men on equal
terms ones more, is to go to a dis
tance from the scene of his misfor
tunes and begin life again among
Far more numerous is that other
class of youthful criminals, whom
lack of home training and home influ
ences, with a natural bent toward
evil, has led into crime. For these
young men the discipline of the re
formatory and the prison Is whole
some. It may be that, after two or
three years spent in one of these in
stitutions, the better nature of the
mam has been worked upon, and new
impulses have been started within
him. He comes out of his retirement
with a sincere desire to be honest,
industrious and reputable thereafter.
But he is almost always weak.
Crime is a disease whose constitu
tional effects require time to eradi
cate. This reformed convict is re
stored to society and looks about him
for associates or friends. He finds
that people upon whom no taint like
his has ever fallen look at him ask
ance. He finds his record a sufficient
condemnation. There is just one
class of persons who offer familiarly
to associated with him on equal terms,
and these are the members of the
gang that be belonged to before he
went to prison. Less guilty, or more
shrewd, than he, 'they have escaped
punishment wiithou. ceasing to de
serve it. They are willing to make
a kind of leader of this man; and he
finds that, while everybody else des
pises him, he may play the hero fin
their eyes. It is ten chances to one
that, without steady, employment,
without friends, and with the tempta
tion to go back to old oourses so
eSrong before him, the lessons which
he has learned, from suffering and
from the discipline of our reforma
tory systems, fade swiftly out of
sight, and ithe man fall, to the level
of his own past.
It is to care for such cases
as this, to carry what we may
call the convalescent criminal
back to complete restoration
of moral health, to look after
him when he leaves the fraternity
within prison walls, to aid him in
finding employment, to encourage
him in .the now ways which are ho
much harder to follow out of jail
than in it, to strengthen 'the -weak
character and hold it up against
temptation, and help itllie man to real
ize in his own life some of the bet
ter things of which -faint glimmer
ings have come to him from the dCs
cipline of servitude, .that a prison as
sociation has been formed. It is a nec
essary, admirable, noble work. For
want of- It hundreds of men and
boj«- and girls in this slate have gone
to ruin in ithe past. Because of thf
lack of it our admirable correct
-nstituittons have not worked cut
their full results. No Improvement
or reform ln that work today could
be of half as much importance as
the organization of this body, devot
..l to the encouragement, and a*- ".
ance of discharged or paroled.„pris
oners. The work has been started
by competent \(h>ainds, and will- be a
success. We commend it most heart
ily to. the sympathy': and .* suppont,
both morally and financially, of all
the good people of the state. 7
IT DOES NOT FOLLOW. iIA-O
With substantial! unanimity, the
Republican papers assume tha.t tine
significance of the elections is the ex
pression of a desire of the majority
to restore 'the policy" of protection.
We are told -thait ithe people have hail
enough of Democratic free trade;
that the -ample they have had of it
and the effects of it have sufficed to
convince them of 'the disastrous na
tune of it, and, comparing cond.'Xcins
under it with the?'? of the ' halcyon
days of McKinleyism, they are eager
to return to the land smiling with
the prosperity that blossomed
and bloomed under the ' gen
ial sun of protection. With this
view we have no quarrel. . In fact,
we cannot comprehend how any Re
publican mikid at all familiar with
logical processes could arrive at any
other conclusion, If it was the ap
prehension of tax reduction that pre
pared the conditions that made the
panic of '93 possible; if it was the
actual legislation in reduction thait
made the chimneys smokeless, the
wheels silent and the men idle; if it
was the Republican successes of '94
that revived industry, then, if there
is virtue and not sham in logic, Re
publican control means a restoration
of ultra protection. We only trust
that, in their convention, they will
have the candor to declare so:
But if this diagnosis of sentiment
or opinion is correct, lit leaves some
tilings to be accounted for. Right in
'the front iramk is 'the defeat of Sen
ator Gibson, in Maryland, whose re
election was directly involved, and of
Senator Gorman, whose leadership
was at stake. Both of these gentle
men had shown themselves entirely
out of sympathy with the cause of
free trade, or even of that freer trade
to which their party was pledged.
Mr. Gorman seldom thought it neces
sary to even veil protect- onist views.
He was the master spirit in the sen
ate that preserved to the bill its dis
tinctively protective character. Mr.
Gibson was simply his respectable
man Friday, hds "Me-too." Then
there was Mr. Brice, of New York, a
senator from Ohio. He was of the
same kidney. He was one of Gor
man's select party of senators who
called on Sugar King Havemeyer to
ascertain the least measure of pro
tection he would accept; and, while
free wool was a good tub to throw
to the whale, he wais sure that the
coal in hiis mines was another thing
altogether, and could not get along
without protection. Then there were
the 'two New Jersey senators who
were staunch protectionists even if
they did profess Democratic faith.
One had resigned and a Republican
been elected, and the other's term
runs beyond the legislature elected
this year, but tftiey were both loyal
Now one who looks at this matter
dispassionately, and on his fellows as
intelligent people with fairly devel
oped power of reaching sound con
clusions from simple premises, would
expect that, if it was protection the
voters wanted, especially if they
wished to rebuke Democratic free
'trade, they would have made their
wish conspicuous by approving thi_
conduct of the Democrats who guard
ed protection when it was -in dire
straits. If men are to be punished
fordoing what a majority wish done,
how is one even to know what to
do? If one has to choose for a watch
dog between one which has throttled
a burglar 'and one which only pos
sibly may, prudence would select the
tried dog, especially if he were the
one that had stood his ground when
■the other curs stuck tail 'twixt legs
and scampered off. So the elections
in the states represented by the gen
tlemen mentioned leave one to doubt
either the reasoning capacity and
sound judgment of 'the voters, or
the accuracy of the Republican diag
nosis. Of the two alternatives, experi
ence as well as general principles
incline one to the rejection of the,
conclusion drawn by our esteemed
but sometimes visionary contempor
aries. We apprehend that succeed
ing elections will assure them of the
fallacy of their judgments.
AT THE MERCY OP ALL.
It would be a less dangerous policy
if the United States were to level
every fort to the ground, sink every
vessel in the navy, melt down every
gun into old iron, and forbid military
service under pain of death, than it
is to leave the nation's treasury un
protected from assault in time of
financial danger. To build a house
which is a veritable fortress, and
then leave one passage open by
which access may be had to the
strong-box, without lock or protect
or, free to every one whom cupidity
may tempt, is a policy of insane
folly of which only this country is
capable. Yet one may hear scores
of people clamoring for more military
protection and a stronger navy, in
the same breath in which they de
clare their opposition to any meas
ures for guarding the treasury
against the demands of the govern
ments of Europe. Our gold is at
their call and our credit at their
mercy, and our people seem to think
it a fine thing to leave it that way.
The circumstances of the financial
world are such at present as to give
point and emphasis to the moral. In
the great capitals of Europe liquida
tion has been going forward, which
carried the bourses almost to the
verge of panic. They have been hav
ing their little speculative debauch,
while we were struggling with the
consequences of our own. All sorts

TROUBLE IX NEAV YORK.
Neither the victory of the Repub
lican party in the state of New York,
nor that of Tammany in the metrop
olis, opens a clear path for those
who were successful at the polls. In
neither case were the offices to be
filled of commanding importance. No
governor was chosen in the state,
and no mayor in the city. The Tam
many triumph, in especial, has been
exaggerated greatly. In point of
fact, it is easy enough to see why
many good citizens voted the Tam
many ticket. Some of its principal
candidates were men of good char
acter and ability. The main execu
tive offices in the city will remain
in the hands that now possess them.
The success of Tammany Hall gives
it no power to remodel the local gov
ernment or to make any essential
change in its administration. It was
because of the unimportant quality
of the issues involved, as well as on
account of the inability of the op
position to agree, that Tammany's
compact forces were easily success
The central issue, that which has
stirred so tumultuously the people of
New York city, namely, the enforce
ment of the excise laws, remains
precisely where it was before. Mr.
Roosevelt "Ss not disturbed in his
office, and has announced that he
will follow imperturbably the pol
icy of Sunday closing, to which he
and his associates are committed.
There is no way to interfere with him
unless the legislature should arbi
trarily legislate him out of existence
for the avowed purpose of restoring
the . "open Sunday" in New York
city. This brings us to the situation
of the opposition party which was
triumphant in the state. The Re
publicans at large won little more
of value from their succeap in the
state than Tammany did from its
temporary restoration to favor in
the city. Mr. Piatt is supreme dic
tator of the legislature which is to
meet at Albany. Both he and it are
confronted with the same irrepressi
ble conflict. The election was car
ried on the platform forced upon
the party convention by Warner Mil
ler, declaring for the maintenance
of the Sunday closing laws. In New
York city both parties are in favor
of local option, . and the representa
tives of each will demand, from the
legislature, such action as will permit
every community to determine its

' own . Sunday ■ laws. The position
which the Republicans of the state
must maintain to ' satisfy the de
mands of the local constituencies, to
please '"whom the -Warner Miller
plank was adopted, is against local
When, therefore, the legislature
meets at Albany, its difficulties will
be multiplied by the fact of its vic

whose views were accurately set.
forth by Mr. Miller when he said that
"we .cannot permit the people of
the cities to destroy • the American
Sabbath." If it lets Mr. Roosevelt
alone, and does nothing to promote,
local option, it will draw upon itself
the united wrath of the people of
New York city and of most of the
other large cities of the state. So
far, then, as, affects the immediate
future, both parties appear to be em
barrassed rather than aided by their
successes at the polls. The discon
tent which is sure to rise, whatever"
action is taken, will visit its conse
quences upon the responsible party,
which is the party in power. No
• where are there signs of greater
trouble for the Republicans, nowhere
is there an outlook that argues more
powerfully for their speedy over
throw, than in the state of New
Republican newspapers are never
weary of ringing changes on the as
sertion that the tariff bill passed by
the last congress was fatally defec
tive in thait It would not produce
revenue enough to pay the expenses
of the government. They point to
the monthly treasury statements
which show a balance on the wrong
side of the ledger, and to the annual
summary that displays a deficit, and
tell the people that the majority
party was unable to provide for tihe
necessary expenditures, which could
have been calculated in advance. This
is 'taken by them as 'alt once proof
that the Democrats in congress un
dertook to cut tariff duties so low
that not enough was left for reve
nue; and that they were willing, to
achieve this purpose, to have the ad
ministration face an excess of ex
penditures over receipts that could
be cured only by the issue of bonds.
This is, as they know, thoroughly
dishonest. Without appearing as a
defender of the tariff act as it finally
became a law, we may remind these
critics that they Intentionally omit
something which they desire that the
people may forget. This is that the
law as passed contained provisions
for imposing and collecting an in-,
come tax; and that it/he receipts from,
this were counted upon as confidently i
as were those to be collected from'
customs or internal revenue duties. -
As far as the mathematical adjust
ment of taxation to expense is con- .
cerned, the scheme was well judged
and well calculated. Whether the
duties fixed were higher or lower than
they should be, and whether an in- :
come tax is theoretically wise or im
proper, is not to the point. The sin- '.
gle fact in this connection which is
valid, as bearing upon the ability .
and intention of congress to con
struct a working revenue law which
should result in neither deficit nor
surplus, is that the bill as a whole
which passed congress did provide
for all demands upon the treasury.
That lit has been made unequal to
this by the decision of the supreme
court declaring the income tax feat
ure unoon_-titu)bional is the misfor
tune tout not the deliberate error of
those who framed it. If the income
tax had been collected, not only
would the treasury have all the mon
ey that lt needs for current ex
penses, but there would be no deficit.
The inadequacy of revenue is not the
fault of the tariff section of the act,
but of the lopping away of the com
panion sections which were to sup
plement it in a revenue-raising ca
A PLAIN VERDICT.
The detailed report of the results
of the Massachusetts election make
precise and final the expression of
opinion by the people of that state
on the woman suffrage question. It
is one that has so often troubled oth
er states, and returns with such per
sistence, that it is more than usually
valuable to know exactly what an in
telligent community like this thinks
about it. We are no longer in any
doubt as to Massachusetts, where
the movement was old, vigorous
and supported by a long list of re
putable leaders of public opinion.
The record of the voting reduces
the woman suffrage question to these
simple terms: Do men desire to force
the ballot upon women? Only a
small fraction of the women who
voted in Massachusetts declared
against suffrage. But nine-tenths of
them refused to vote at all. The
considerable vote which was cast
for it was cast by men.
While an immense majority of men
voted against it, there is no doubt -
that they were influenced principal
ly by the belief that women did not
care to vote. If the opposite were
clearly shown, it is probable that;
men generally would be ready to
concede the ballot to women, un- ■
wise though such action might be.
The whole woman suffrage proposi- [
tion, as the Massachusetts election
now presents it, is not can the <.
woman suffragists persuade men to
give them the franchise, but can
they persuade women to ask for it?
We believe that this question has
been answered in the only way that
it ever will be answered, in the neg
ative. It is a higher tribute to wom
an that she thus instinctively recog
nizes her true place and function in'
the social system than it would be
if she were admitted to all the offices
of the state and all the political
privileges of the other sex.

A JOINT SESSION
Of Hamline ml Still-crater Branch
es of W. C. T. U.
The ladies of the W. C. T. U. of
Stillwater met with the ladies of the
Hamline association yesterday, and a
very enjoyable and profitable day
was spent. The meeting was held at
the home of Mrs. Dr. McGraw, on
Snelling avenue. Luncheon was serv
ed by the Hamline ladles, after which
a programme was rendered. The first
number was the singing of the hymn
adopted by the state organization. A
prayer by Miss Creasy, of Stillwater,
followed. A recitation entitled "The
Church Organ" was then given by Miss
Ewing, of Stillwater. This selection
was rendered in a happy manner, and
the ladies were greatly entertained by
it. Miss Alice Bardswell, who was a
-delegate to the national convention at
Baltimore in October, gave her offi
cial report next. The report was of
considerable length, but was of spe~
,- cial interest. This report was fol
' lowed by a brief talk from Miss Alice
Creasy, an ex-student of Hamline uni
versity. The talk was upon the W. C.
T. U. work in general.
, Miss Alice Borden, after an appro
priate Introduction, presented- Mrs. S.
-V. Root, president of the Hamline as
sociation, with ' a gavel which came
from Mount Vernon. The gift was ac
companied with the compliments of
both associations.- Mrs. Root respond
ed in a pleasing manner, saying that
she' greatly appreciated the token of
esteem thus presented to her by her
coworkers in the W. C. T. U. A num
ber of short talks were then made by
I ladies from both associations, after
which the meeting adjourned, and some
time was spent In sociability.
The day was greatly enjoyed by all
present, and the wish was expressed
that another similar joint session
might be held soon. Both associa
tions are in a very prosperous condi
tion at present. The one at Hamllne
is the largest' in Minnesota. Among
the representatives from Stillwater
were Miss Alice Wolfer and Mesdames
Laura Reed, Lizzie Cressy, Clara Ew
ing, Hattie Hagermon, Alice Bard
well, Augusta Clifford, Ida Kenyon,
Eva Bertram, Kate Decrest, Winnie
Lear and Mary Brown.
GETTING IN SHAPE.
Officers of the Carnival Associa
tion Doing Preliminary AVortc.
Secretary Bowlby, of the carnival
association, and his assistant, J. J.
Ryder, were busy as bees yesterday
sending out notices, answering letters
and preparing copy for office supplies.
The stockade feature seems to have
hit a popular chord, and its advo
cates point out that there are almost
illimitable opportunities for elabora
tion of such a feature.
It is expected that the chairmen of
all committees will call meetings to
day and tomorrow, in order to be in
shape to make suggestions at the gen
eral meeting, which has been called
for Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock, at
the Commercial club rooms.
Secretary Bowlby urgently requests
that all old and new club organiza
tions report to him at once names and
addresses of officers. This is an im
portant matter, he pointed out, be
cause from these officers will be form
ed the general carnival committee,
which will be auxiliary to the regular
committee, and is to work with them.
One of the most encouraging things
in the whole business is that, with one
or two exceptions, all the gentlemen
selected as directors are' evincing a
lively interest in the work. Many let
ters have been received . saying that
the writers can be depended upon to

leaders of the rustlers were lynched

have been almost as great as they

been captured In the act of killing cat
