HAS REPLY FOR
CRITIC S LETTER
Says His Statements Not De
rogatory to Present Manage
. ment of Reform School
"I am not disposed to enter Into a
controversy In this matter," say Cir
cuit lodge C. W. Ashford In answer
to a letter to the Star-Bulletin, pub
lished yesterday, criticising his recent
itatemnls Teg?rding the prison and
reform school, "or to cast reflections
cn the i resent management of the re
"I have every reason to believe that
the management -has been greatly im
proved over what it was recently; but
I wai slightly misquoted, however,
.which may justify the criticism."
What Judge Ashford said in court
last Saturday was that, in sending two
Hawaiian boys to. prison, he had the
; idea of reform, farther than the idea
of punishment, in mind, adding, how
ever, that be did not look upon either
- the prison or the reform school as be
lug strictly ; reformatories. He re
peated a former assertion that, In his j
opinion, the reform school was the
'prPjoratory school for Jail.
Uut'in taylng what I did, be says,
and which expresses my. opinion aa
still held, it was not intended to be
derogatory to the present management
of the reform school. It is the human
nature at' the. bottom of the ques
tion, as represented in the inmates,
rather than the administration of the
school that is to blame for the condi
tion.! referred to.
I share the hope of many others
that the tendency to which I referred
will be materially reduced by a more
Just, but at the same time liberal and
. equitable, discipline of the youthful
Inmates of the school." .
Judge Ashford's remarks were made
prior to the sentence of two boys
