WHIPPING A FAILURE.
AN EX-WARDEN ON CORPORAL PUN

Oood Result A Suggestion a to State
"In the light of an experience of nearly
twelve years as one of the lessees and as war
den of tbe Missouri penitentiary, I am pre
pared to state In the most unqualillod manner
that I bollove corporal umsbment of con
victs is a mistake, that whipping and kindred
tortures should be abolished, and a humane
system of discipline substituted. Since I re
tired from tbe control of the Missouri peni
tentiary I have visited the leading peual in
stitutions of the eastern cities, ami state as
my conviction that more work and hotter
work can be got out of the men where tbe cat
o' nine tails is banished."
The speaker was cx-Wardou Willis, now a
resident of St. Louis, and the listener a
"You are, then, a believer in the power of
the state to reform its criininalsr'
A BKUEVKR IN REFORM.
"Emphatically I am. I nm glad you asked
tbe question, for I want to explain myself.
It is difficult, I would almost say impossible,
to secure the best rasulu umlur the present
system in the Missouri penitentiary. My
idea is to build a branch, but to let it be
known as a reformatory, and seud to it such
prisoners as there nre hopes of reforming.
Such an institution bus just leen opened tip
at Huntington, Pa. It was intended to be
called penitentiary No. 3, but the legisla
ture changed its scojie. Col. McClaughrey,
who, in a long term of years, had made
the Juliet (Ills.) penitentiary the molel
of all prisons in this country, is in
charge of the Huntington institution,
being engaged . by the statu for life
at (5,000 per annum. The prison must
not be confounded with a reform school. The
inmates are required to work ut trades as in
other penitentiaries, but they am given ad
vantages, such as night schools, books, oppor
tunities to converse with each other in assem
bly, etc Prisoners nre assigned to Hunting
ton after the manner followed In Now York.
In that state all prisoners are sent first to
Sing Sing. There they Hre examined by a
board which sits daily, nnd if hardened or
habitual criminals, or of what is called
strictly the criminal class, they are put to
work at once in Sing Sing, but otherwise
they are sent to Elmira, or sumo ono of the
other branch penitentiaries, which are much
to be preferred. There is in prison Ufa an
existence of caste that Is as clnxjly drawn as
among the natives of India.
"I romeniticr that a ihjto was brought to
Jefferson City one day. I recognized him at
a glance as a former pruoncr, and I said:
'You have been here tefov, btr.'
"With arleur voi.ro, in which there was
the slightest tinge of pii.l:, he replied: 'Yes,
sun, but it was for cuttin", sab.'
" 'Aud what Ls it now." I a-ain asked.
"lie hung his bead lit'iii,lily as Iu mum
bled out, 'Burglary ami larceny.'
"And that brings ine back to the reforma
tory. A man who in a moment of paxion
lias shot or otherwi-o injur.'xl another, and
who has always leen an honest and, we will
say, law abidiug citizen, must not he. made to
think that his incarceration puts him on a
moral lovel with the burglars, thieves and
cut throats who arc his prison mates. Such
a man is most likely, in the bitterness of his
spirit, to become unruly, und become a sub
ject for discipline. To whip a man of that
class is to make him worse. He would feel
no contrition for his oflViiu, but while recog
nizing that ho was subjected . thu lush he
would only cherub bitter feelings.
"Professional criminals make the best pris
oners, from a keeper's standpoint. A second
or third termer is always eagorly sought for
by a contractor. Such a man knows that he
has nothing to gain by rebellious behavior,
and he sets to work to make life as pleasaut
"The idea of life being mude pleasant in a
penitentiary is rather a perverted use of the
"Oh, no; some people could be contented,
I believe, in tho middle of the burning lake.
Negroes are a particularly light hearted lot.
I ofton tbiuk ot an incident illustrating this
phase of character. It was ou a very bright,
but particularly cold December day that a
couple of well fed, lusty colored men con
nected with the kitchen wero lounging about
the yard, when there was brought to the
'round bouse' a particularly forlorn specimen.
He was a whito man, and had been arrested
for hog stealing down in the country some
where, some time during the previous sum
mer. He had lain in jail during the summer,
fall and early winter with no other clothing
than that which he woro when arrested. The
diet was not over liberal, I suppose, and the
poor fellow looked liko the frame of a man.
As he walked across tho yard the wind
seemed to fairly blow through both his tat
ters and his anatomy, and ho shivered-as he
felt the blast. One of the negroes glanced at
the chattering wretch, and then remarked to
his mate, with a contented chuckle: 'Looks
like times war mighty hard outside, Bllir
" 'You're shouting,' replied Bill.
"But I want to again answer your question
about reform. The police would be apt to
mifcleacj you ou uus subject. While warden
I looked into the matter, aud while I demt
recall the exact figure, the percentage of
convicts tnat was returned to the prison was
very small, certainly below 3 per cent. I
meet men every day of my life who hare
dona time, come out, settled down among their
former acquaintances and lived honest lives.
I sea, in tho course of a year in St Louis,
hundreds of them, in all wulks of life, work
ing at the trades, driving team and in higher
walks. The rule, however, ls for a man who
during his confinement has seen the error of
his ways to go off to some strange locality
and commence life again. Every town in the
country has its Joan Valjean. I meet them
everywhere, and I travel extensively men
who come up to me and say: 'That term I
served with you made a man of me.' The
police officer's glib axiom, 'once a thief,
always a thief,' finds no echo in my heart It
is not my intention to discuss the whipping
feature in detail Horrible as it is, it ls sanc
tioned by law. It is for the legislature to
abolish it. I only give my opinion, based
upon observation here and abroad, that bet
ter results, both to the men and the contract
on, can be obtained without it, or any of tbe
hundred punishments. To take this view, I
must stand squarely on the platform that the
state's duty is not to punish convicts, but to
reform them." St Louis Globe-Democrat.
Honkers Prefer the North.
At Atlanta, a little, squatty Italian carry

HIS LAST BLUE CHIP.
The Tramp Who Bad Been Trained for
JuurnalUm Works Mew Scheme.
Tie tramp was a very seedy individual ol
together, tail and angular, with a woebegone,
hatchet faced, and a general air of disrepu
tability ulout his make up. His shoes were
ragged, so was bis sack cont; his trousers
were patched, and he had no necktie. Ho
might have been an ill starred actor, or a dog
fighter gone to seed, or a tramp prluter. But,
none the lets, it was a graceful attitude that
he struck before the door of the cottage as
"the lady of tbo house" apieared.
"Madam," he said, "you see before you the
wreck of one of tho grandest chicken handlers
thut ever opened a gamo soiree iu a Now
Orleans parlor. Do you follow me, maduin f"
The woman replied that she knew nothing
of chicken fighting or of 'Louisiaua society.

every one I meet as I touched General Booth
for a double X, I would not he hero cringing
before your lovely face and bliudiug beauty.
Do-er do you yet size me up?"
The woman thought she didn't, but wasnt
"'Hie jacet sweiterkuse !' as NaKleon said
wbeu he threw his lust dollar on the seven

madam, when the fretful babble of society's
pampered favorites is hushed by tho force of
his magnificent impersonation Such was I
once, years ago, ere I sank beneath 'tho
slings aud arrows of outrageous fortune.'
You see? you arlcz vous!"
Tho woman wus growing restless. "If you
want to sell a picter look or a new double

said sharply, "show yer samples. Don't

He pulled out the tenpnuny nail that served
for a button in his coat, and, thrusting his
bony fingers into an inner pocket, produced
a greasy, much crumpled sheet of paper.
"I call this my last bltio chip, madam, be
cause I havo played it in every newspaper
office east of the Rockies. It is one of those
little poems that men of genius toss off in
leisure moments. I never could bring myself
to part with it. When I have shown it to my
brother Journalists they have praised It.
Tbey did not offer to buy it lest they might
injure my sensitive feelings. But on the
strength of this poem they blow me off to a
square meal and give me a list of the deserted
barns for the next Cvo miles, or tell me the

I think. No, below tho average, for she
wears a wig. But in your faro I saw tbe an

that would havo turned Pojxj's cynical shafts
upon man and away from woman."

tho woman; "but I can't buy your poem."

Tho dog' name was Punch, and he is de

accustomed to have three extensive meals a
day, which his master, thinking quite rightly
to better his condition by so doing, reduced
to one meal, per saltum. The result is thus
