Midway I'lalsanee Always Open.
The Midway I'laisance will not be closed
Sunday whether the rest of the fair is or
is not shut up. On the contrary it will
hereafter be very wide open. The fair
authorities have promised to give the ex
hibitors on the oriental thoroughfares
such support that their places will become
the feature of the fair. The officials have
come to realize that the best interests of
the Midway managers is money in the
treasury of the exposition company and
some great improvements to the advant
age of the plaisance have lieen decided

plaisance to protect visitors from rain and
excessive heat, and it is to be lighted
every night. A scheme is under considera

people from every corner of the glole.

Iniliana Man Astonishes the Confer
ence of Charities.
Sectional meetings of the Conference of
Charities and Corrections were the order of
the day, and t,here was a sensation in the
section devoted to the treatment of crime.
C. H. Reeve, of Plymouth, Ind., opened the
proceedings by reading a paper on "The
Philosophy of Crime." Mr. Reeve advanced
some views which made the reformers in
his awlience look shocked. He held that
whatever happens to the individual is a
natural outgrowth and result of his organ
isms and environment. Crime is an out
growth of evolution, Mr. Reeve said, and
all the laws for dealing with it should be
wiped off the statute books. Instead of
cumbersome machinery of courts a good
big prjfon is all that is necessary for deal
ing with criminals, whoought to lie stowed
away where they can never offend again.
Mr- Reeve said societ y has a right to deal
with crime, which is the result of diseased
mental or physical condition, as it deals
with cholera or small-pox. When a crim
inal is arrested he should be examined in
order to determine the cause of his abnor
mal condition. If it can lie remedied the
man may then lie restored to the world: If
not, the prisoner should go into perpetual
retirement. His disappearance, never to
return, would exert a force uwn others a
thousandfold greater as a preventive than
any idea or practice of punishment could
do or ever did do.
The state, moreover, should prevent the
marriage of c riminals and should prevent
criminals under any circumstance from
having projfeny and handintr down their
vicious tendencies to posterity. Mr.
Reeve said the subject of crime and crim
nals is purely a matter of business in gov
ernment. Xo sentiment should enter into
it until after t he criminal had lieen ren
When Mr. Reeve finished reading his
paper was assailed by Dr. Matigas.irian. of
Chicatro. The latter found fault with the
writer's definition of crime, which was
'something forbidden by government.'"
This. Dr. Manga sari an said, made crimi
nals of .Testis and of nearly all reformers
since the Savior's advent.
Judge Follett, of Ohio, said that Mr.
Reeve's philosophy was wrong. It had no
basis, and the writer of the paper had
failed to fix a standard. He had never seen
a criminal who was so b.id that there was
I t something good in him. In dealing
with crime society should develop the good
in the criminal if possible.
Mr. Reeve took the floor and defined
crime again. Hc'said crime was not the
act. but the motive prompting the act, and
in every case the motive springs from an
abnormal mental or physical condition.
So, he contended, his definition was all
Dr. Nutting, of Rhode Island, said he
had never come in cont;fct wit h a criminal
in whom t here was not a spark of good.
There is always an emotional nature, and
more or less moral perception. With these
wanting there would lie no use of talking
aliout reforming prisoners.
Miss H. M. Todd, of Roston, tol.l alwiut
the new system infrodnced in Massachu
setts for the reformation of criminals by
putting them on probation. She was ap
pointed by an act of the legislature to in
vestigate the lives of women arrested for
crime. When a prisoner is found guilty,
she said, the court mayfcuspend sentence
and allow him to go his way and sin no
more. This system. Miss Todd said, had
worked well during the short time it had
been in ojicration.

Sabbatarian at Indianapolis Uiscuss the
Indianapolis, June 14. A general con
ference upon Sunday observance, called
by the interstate Sabbath committee of
the American Sabliath union, began its
session here with a warm debate on the
Sunday openlng-thtt--World's fair. Dr.
McAllister, of Pittsburg, made a vehement
argument in favor of boycotting the fair
if the courts decided for opening, but his
sentiments did not meet with general an-
Pproval. Rev. D. R. Lucas and Rev. M. L.
Haines, two OI me most, prominent minis
ters of this citv, both took issue with him
and declared that while they favored ever
honorable means of Sunday closing they
had no sympathy with the boycott for any
purpose ami proposed to attend the fair
anyhow. Dr. James Boyce suggested that
they try the efficacy of prayer, which was
met with prompt approval and he led the
convention in a fervent prayer for Sunday
DOINGS OF THE TYPOGRAPHERS.
Action AebIiisJ the Appointment of Ed
wards as I'nhlic I'rlnter.
Cinc'Afio.Juncl t. The principle act ion of
the International Typographical conven
tion was the adoption of a protest against
the appointment of C. W. Edwards, of
Wilmington. Del., as public- printer at
Washington. A letter from Edwards was
read asking for a heariug.but it was refused.
The objection to him is t hat he is not a
union man and the protest included any
non-union man. A commit tee was appointed
to escort the remains of Delegate (iamble,
of New York, tohishome. He was drowned
last Sunday. A decision of the president
in lssl regarding the issue of of traveling
cards by local unions was modified so
that a printer can have his card returned
if he does not get work in a week.

Washington, June 14. A representa
tive of the United Press in conversation
with Secretary Carlisle suggested to him
that there was a lark of precise informa
tion touching the amount of silver coined
up to the present time, and also as to the
manner in which the present operation of
the treasury under the so-called Sherman
act results in the payment of gold in the
purchase of silver bullion. In reply to
these suggestions Secretary Carlisle said:
"The operations of the United States mint
commenced in 17!C2 and from that time to
1S73, a period of eighty-one years, the total
amount rX silver dollars coined was 8,04.V
838. In W3 the coinage was stopped by
act of congress, but in 1878 it was resumed
under the so-called Bland-Allison act,
and between the date of that act
and the Kith day of July, lStwt, a period of
twelve years, there were coined S37S,
lGo,7!H. Only iau8,01l,010 In Circulation.
''In addition to this there has been coined
I mm trade dollars 5,07,47i!, and from the
K'igniorage of bullion purchased and coined
under the act of July Tl, 1S!0, the sum of
?t;,m,l!, making the aggregate S3SS,SSo,
374 in full legal tender silver money issued
by the government since Ists. Of this
amount only .V,0lfi,010 were in actual cir
culation on the lirst day of the present
month, the remainder living held in the
treasury as part of the assets of the govern
ment or living represented by outstanding
certificates.' The Sherman act required
the treasury to purchase 4.."iOi,Ooo ounces of
silver p-or month, and coin ?-.k(ih per
month until July 1, ls'.'l. ' Under this act
there have lieen coined -.".4'is.4r,I, which
makes the total coinage of silver dollars

Enormous Lot of Silver Hu'iMom.
The secrvtary said that the bullion pur
chased and not coined now amounted to
l-M.2!i-.."kti ounces, which was stored in the
vaults and. was worth in gold si"xs,,i;;0,
less than vfis paid for it. "By the terms
of the Sherman act The secretary was re
quired to pay f-ir silver bullion pur
chased by the issue of the new United
States treasury notes payable in coin, and
it provided that upon demand of the hold
er of any stich notes they should be re
deemed in gold or silver coin, at the discre
tion of the secretary, 'it being.' in the
language of the act. "the established pol
icy of the United States to maintain 1 1
two metals on a parity wit h each other

as may lie provided by law."

"In t he execut ion of this declared policy
of congress it is thedutyof the secretary
of the treasury, when the neces-ity jirises,
to cxercbe all the powers conferred upon
him by law in order to keep the govern
ment in condition to redeem its obliga
tions in such coin as may Ik- demanded,
and to prevent t he depreciat ton of cither
as compared with the ot her. The records
of the treasury department show that
during the eleven months lieginning May

treasury notes issued for the purchase-of
silver bullion under the act of July 14,

"During the same period the amount of
such notes paid in gold was 47,745.173. It
thus apiiears that all the silver bullion
purchased during that time, except .-J,21fi.-(dl
worth, was paid for in gold, while the
bullion itself is stored in the vaults of the
treasury, and can neither lie sold nor used
for the payment of any kind of obligation.
Howlongt.be government shall thus lie
compelled to purchase silver bullion and
increase, the public debt by issuing coin
certificates in payment for it is a question
which congress alone can answer.
