Thc Now? are pretty much the same.
Ttie question arises as to whether it
lt not better to give real puisbment to
negroes convicted of minor crlmc3,
than to add their numheis to the labor
supply by paying their tines and so
encouraging them in their criminal

the fi?d negroes get thc idea that they
can break laws and came disturban
