ERRING YOUTH A
Charles Virden, Children's Vis
itation Agent, Speaks at
First M. E. Church.
CRIMINAL EASILY MADE
Carelessness and Brutality of Par-
ents Responsible in Mpny
Charles Virden of Springfield, state
agent for the visitation of children,
gave an address at the First Metno-d-ist
church last evening. He told of
many sad, cruel cases which had come
under his care. He described the care
lessness and brutality of parents, re
sulting in some cases in the moral,
physical or mental ruin of the young.
"I am a minister of the gospel," Mr.
Virden said. "That is, I am ordained
and preached for many years. 'Now I
am carrying out the gospel of Jesus
Christ, but my work is purely and
solely the gospel practically applied.
"At the time of the riot .in Sprmg-
field, two years ago, a great pall was
cast on the state 'and it will require
yea's to lift It. Iwas standing on a
Etreet corner there' when the howling,
shouting, screeching mob, composed
of the riff-raff, the scum and a few
respectable looking people of the city
formed. Thirty minutes later the mob
returned in sections, and I called aside
a young boy in pantaloons, not more
than 12 years of age, and asked him
where they had been, and he told me,
'Up the road to hang a nigger.' The
facts of the case are well known to all
of you. This mob, led by Abe Ray
mer, a mere youth, had gone to an old
negro's home and, after demanding ad
mittance to the disabled man's home,
brutally treated him, and then took
him out from his home and hanged
him. This certainly was a sad thing,
The boys in knee pantaloons who
were In the mob are the .ones who will
be anarchists when they have reached
man's estate. They are the ones who
will occupy tho cells of our peniten
tiaries or the executioner's chair. In
stead of graduating from the public
schools, where they would be properly
fitted for life, they are graduating from
the school of crim. the school which

"I am not an alarmist nor a pessi
mist, but I am here to sound the alarm.
The question now is, what shall we
do with the dependant and the delin
quent children? If we are not careful
the question soon will be, what are
they going to do with us? In 1905 a
state law was passed for the appoint
ment of a state agent with assistants
for the visitation of the homes through
out the state, where children were
plated or confined. I was the agent
appointed at the time and the assist
ants which I now have under me must
report quarterly to me of the condl
tions of these homes. If we find that
a child has been placed in an improper
place, we remove him and the expense
of removal must be paid by those who
put the child there.
"I want to tell you that I place my
stamp of disapproval upon this busi
ness of advertising for homes for these
homeless children. In this respect
your own town needs a cleansing, and
I am here to do It. There is one unlit
person here at present who is sending
broadcast throughout the state and
into Iowa a pamphlet and in it she
promises she will place children In nice

Smith at Peoria was one of my first
cases after I came into the office. Lit
tle Peter was placed Into a so-called
home by a county judge down there.
The place was owned by a woman of
low mentality and lower morality. The
boy was forced to carry beer and
whisky for her. One morning he was
forced to hoe potatoes for her before
breakfast. Because he was a little
slow she took the hoe and beat him
over the head unmercifully. Then he
was forced to wash the dishes, and
because' he cried, she hit him over the
head with a tack hammer. He ran
away and was about to Jump into the
river and drown himself when an old
fisherman, who proved to be his grand
father, stopped him and took him
home, dressed his wounds and cared
for him till we placed him in a fine
home in the southern part of the state.

abused him, what was coming to her.

"The majority, in fact, n. than
85 per cent of the cases unuer our
notice are caused by parents who drink
whisky or beer. One Peoria little girl
was placed in the state industrial
school, which was, In fact, not a stat

through an accident there, and in order
to relieve her suffering, the authen
