1 THE RANDALLS ISLAND WAIFS
t
Superintendent Bender charges of mismanagement
In tho treatment of juvenile delinquents on Randalls
bland make painful readier
In tho Department of City Charities proper within two
ayears a very noteworthy Improvement of administra
tion has been brought about economies have been
t effected abuses of long standing ended and tho public
J Institutions elevated a high state of efficiency
These Improving chances have extended to things of
relatively minor consequence oven to the use of better
tntlewirn In the almshousc the serving of better food
l dd tho treatment of Inmates not as convicts sitting
back to back at meal time as they used to sit but face
Jto taco Alone with tho abolition of tho senso of degra
idation has como an Increase of sclfrcapcct
I It It therefore all tho more shocking to read tho alto l
sationfl of the State Superintendent of Charities of un
e
fortunato conditions at the Randalls Island House of
Refuge
V iThe specific charges arc that the food is insufficient
and made unpalatable becauseof its unvarying mo
f notony that the boys are illclothed and frequently
permitted go shoeless and that human beings are
l treated as if they were animals
> They como with startling unexpectedness when made
against tho administration of a charity by a society of
i j recognized high standing in which much amateur phil
o anthropy of a superior sort has found exercise
I > An official Investigation of these charges will serve
iirorious good uses The Society for the Reformation of
Juvenile Delinquents receives from the State an annual
appropriation of from 160000 to 200000 It is subsi
I dized on tho some basis as other semipublic charitable
societies in some of which as Comptroller Color showed
and Comptroller Grout showed also after tho State
f old thus obtained has been largely exhausted on salaries
and general expenses them has remained a small residua
for actual use In philanthropy
There is no allegation of such a misapplication of
1
I funds by this highly reputable society But In tho cso
s
of this as of other similar charitable organizations half
public hnlfprlvnte a direct accountability to State or
city with n stricter responsibility would obviously bo
of advantage
FAT AND THE PRESIDENCY
From tho summer capital at Oyster Bay comes an
3 official denial of the published report that tho President
had gained weight while In tho White House It was
said thatho now tips the beam at 220 theao figures rep
resenting an Increase of 33 pounds It appears how
ovcr that his official weight as certified to Is only lOa
pounds and within six years ban never exceeded 207
pounds nor declined bolow 107
In the liitarcst of fulrneii it Is well that the exact
figures Hhotiltl bo put on record and malicious mlsropre
tatlon set at rest It may well bo that In a Presidential can
didate obesity would bo fatal to electoral success and a
false report of a tendency that way should lio suppressed
Those 35 extra pounds wrongfully accredited to the Pres
ident might have lost him Kansas and Nebraska cer
tainly Arizona and Colorado could a rough rider vote
for a fat man Or Is It lllcoly that a tall Kentucky
mountaineer or lank East Tenncsscean of the Abo Lin
coln type would wish to elevate to high office a can
didate eligible for membership in a fat mans club
i The twohundredpound mark Is a fatal Rubicon of fat
the passing of which by 20 pounds within two years In
ii spite of the moat unremitting athletic exercise would
have indicated a possible threehundredpounder before
the expiration of tho next Presidential term Three
Hundred Pounds of too too solid flesh In Lincolns
chair The remotest possibility of such an event might
well cause apprehension and tho authoritative denial Is
understandable
ii
OUR FIRST CITIZENS
The meeting of some of the grandest ladles of New
York with Chlbf Joseph and his Indian braves in tho
gold diningroom of the Waldorf was a social event the
importance of which should not be overlooked
It was aristocrat meeting aristocrat The host was
I a man whose name has been associated with monkey
dinners the chlev had n record of dog banquets to match
One of tho ladles is noted In Newport annals for a dance
the memory of which Is yet fresh In the history of social
freaks what was it In eclat to Chief Josephs many sun
dunces It was first citizen meeting first citizen and
though nil the wampum of ten tribes could not pay for
the gilt on wall and ceiling the chief was not abashed
The meeting may result profitably for paleface society
In tho matter of suggestions for styles The dabs of
blue on Josephs cheeks tho yellow on hIs chin and the
+ qrlmson on his temples combined a facial color scheme
w
which no coat of enamel has ever equalled The chiefs
feathered headdress was also most effective
Why not an Indian dinner dance for Fifth avenue this I
whiter If the hint Is not taken a golden opportunity I
to enliven a Jaded social season will be neglected
THE WAR ON BEGGARS
Tho campaign of the Charity Organization Society
against professional beggars resulted In tho arrest of
two of the most notorious members of the fraternity of
d mendicancy on Thursday and tho conviction of one

Inzy to take up the burdens of house
keeping let alone family cares and In
consequence they grow peevish and din
contented through Idleness and spend
their spare time hunting for men who i
will take them to afternoon dinner and

lAnother ofllcer entered an old man
covered to the eyes by his crimson
poMbrocadeJ cap Two more followed
Thcro Is a loX person here said
Jack You cannot have the Intention
of turning her out It Is Inhuman
He stopped short stupefied at the
eight o1 tho old omcer who now stool
bareheaded In tho lanternlight looking
it the bed alter Lorraine lay It was
the Ernperorl her father
Slowly the Emperor advanced to the
bed hU dreary eyes fixed on Lorraines
pal cheeks
In the silence the cries from the street
outside rose clear and distinct
Long live the nepubllcl Down with
the Emncror
The Emperor spoke looking stralsht
at Lorraine Gentlemen we cannot
disturb a woman Pray find another
house
With a var e gesture he stepped near I
er smoothed the coverlet bent closer
and touched the sleeping girls fore
head with his lips Then he stood up
grayfaced Impassive
I am an old man he said as though
to himself He looked at Jack who
now came close to him holding out
something In ohe hand It was the steel
box
tjr me monsieur atlted the Em
poror
Jack nodded He could not speak
The Emperor took the box attU look
ing at Jack
I thank Oul thank you both my
children bo Mid His tyta wandered
again toward the toed the cries In the
street raze out furiously
Death to the Empcrorr
The Sister of Mercy was kneeling by
he bed Jack shivered nnd dropped
his head
AMien ho looked up the Emperor bad
gone
Jack sank down by tho bed burying
his taco In the sheets
lot am going to be very 111 he said
raising a face burning wltti fever
Never mind me but stay with her
I understand said the Sister gently
You must He In the room beyond
The fever seized Jack with a swift
ness Incrodlblo
Therewear Itby the by the
6avlour there there on your crucifix
he muttered
I swear she answered softly
His mind wandered a little but ho act
his teeth and rose staggering to the
table Ho wrote something on a bit of
paper with shaking fingers
Send for them ho said You can
telegraph now They ore In DrUMds
my ulster my family
Then blinded by tho raging fever he
made his way uncertainly to the bed
groped for Lorraines hand pressed It
and lay down at tier feet
The doctor pronounced hid malady the
muchdreaded Pelt bred of the dtys
horribly congested condition He ad
vised Lorraine to leave the sick man to
tho care of the Sister of Mercy as the
disease was terribly contagious The
girl quietly refused and nursed her
senseless lover night and day
On the second day tho entrance of the
German army Into the city brought her
to the window
The trample the TOhlto Cuirassiers
In tho street outside filled the room
tho serried squadrons thundered post
ateel ringing on steel horses celghJny
trumpets Bounding the Royal March
Through the tangled messes of lseg

Terrified turning her head from side
to side Lorraine stretched out her
hands She tried to speak but her ears
were filled with the deep voices shout
Ing the splendid battle hymn

The WhIte Cuirassiers hook their

looked up
Aa the fallen Emperorn eyes met Lor

Then she went back to her uncon

When the Vtcomta and Mme de Slor

There were no hacks no conveyances
of any kind so the tall whitebearded

One who bad known them In former

At that moment a young girl came
out of the crowded station looking

After a moment Lorraine erteped back
drying hr sweet eyes Dorothy kissed

would have been different
After n sllenco she amid again

The Man 4 I
Higher
Gov Odell Tells Boys
To Stay on the Farm
H I SEE that Gov Odell advises tho boys of New
York State to stay on tho farm observed the
Cigar Store Man
Sure Mike raid the Man Higher Up The Gover
nor has a telescopic lamp Ho can seo Into tho future
for several miles and ho has the key to the situation
fastened to his suspender buttons by a cable If th
boys of New York State dont stay on tho farm what I
going to become of the Republican majority
Tho bigger New York City and Buffalo and Roche
ter and other cities getto be the bigger the Democrat
majorities become and the less chance there Is of ha
Ing a Republican Governor and Legislature In Alba
You will recollect that In the last State election
looked as though Coler was all to the mustard until t
returns began to como In from the rural districts
around the Adirondack mountalna Then young M
1
Color took tho count I
It Is ns certain as percentage that Ropublicatj
flourish In tho sections where the taco of nature ij mad
to produce Tho Rube Is n natural Republican Dem
crate grow or arc developed In cities In the great aj
cultural States a Democrat has about as much show
being elected Governor as a man with a consclencr
making success In Wall street I
That Is why Gov Odell wants the boys of tho
to stay on tho farm hed like to have them live II I
bgosh lands until they get so covered with moss
you couldnt chisel It off with tho sharpest tools of tl
ment over used So lone as the yap holds the bal
of power the Republican party Is on velvet c
But you cant keep the youthful hayseed on
farm and It Is a good thing for tho country at large
this Is so To compel an ambitious If Immature
to stack all his checks ou the old homestead and
his hand out until ho is in shape for a ride to the gi
yard Is Intellectual assassination
Where would this city be If the boys had rem
on the farm In the early times and where would 1
now If there wasnt a bunch of hornyhanded st
bruised freckled and eager young hayseeds carr
their paper suit cases Into tho railroad stations o
day Our great merchants great lawyers great r1
road men great speculators great theatrical manage
great bankers came from the farm and more of the
ore coming all tho time
When tho city calls to a boy on tho farm hols
no more use to the farm than a coating of asphalt MO
keep him there is not only to rob him of opportunities
he might have enjoyed in tho city but to make a bum
farmer out of him Lots of farmer boys fall when they
butt into tho city but everybody cant be a winner or
there wouldnt be any players on the other side of the
game Wo live off ono another and It is natural that
wo should
I may be prejudiced because t didnt come from a
farm but why a kid who can read and write and think
should want to stick to the fields and the woods and the
prospects of becoming able to earn a couple of dollars a
sixteenhour day stops at tho front door of my compre
hension Whenever I see a contented farmer I feel like
I was In tho Eden Musee I
Sometimes I long for tho old farm elghed the

For a year the use of phosphorus matches has boon pro
