November Weather-
The present month promises to be
much colder than November of last
year, which was above the average
in temperature. It in turn was cold
er than the same month of' 96 which
averaged forty-eight degrees and
was the warmest November within
ten years. The present month will
probably not equal the record of
November '94, which averaged forty
degrees, the coldest of ten years.
The highest temperature for No
vember during the past decade was
seventy-five, observed November 9,
1895, and the most frigid weather
was felt November 30, 1891, when
the thermometer dropped to four
teen degrees.
Last year broke the ten years'
precipitation record when in one day
1.9 inches of water fell. The month
has an average of 2.97 inches.
The prevailing winds during the
past ten years for November have
been from the west and the highest
wind was from the southeast, fifty
four miles per hour. November 23,

Juvenile Crimes and Ourfew Chimes-
By Wm. F. Crafts. Ph. D. Superintendent of
the Reform Bureau, Washington, D. C. ;
The parents of more than three hun
dred towns and cities of the United
States, moved by more than three hun- j
dred tragedies of juvenile crime, have
recently ordained—acting cooperative
ly through their town and city councils
—that their children shall come home
at night at the signal of a so called
curfew bell, which usually rings at eight
o'clock in winter, atinine in summer
Those who argue against the re- I
vival of the "curfew"' as a return to
medievalism show ignorance of history
or lack of poetry. The ancient cui
few applied to old and young alike, i
The modern curfew has only the poetic
resemblance of being an evening bell. I
As well object to modern uses of the
words "chivalry - ' and crusade," be- I
cause the works in medieval times
meant war. Those who argue that
parents snould regulate this matter,
forget that government is but the co- j
operative act of parents, who need to !
act together in cities and villages. No
where can curfew be established except
at the request of parents expressed in
ballots and petitions. The law no
more interferes with parental rights
and personal liberty than the kindred
laws on compulsory education and
child labor now fully established in the
most enlightened commonwealths. 1
The school and the curfew bell are !
equally justified as necessary safeguards
of public morals and prospective cit- I
izenship. Laws forbidding the sale of
liquors and tobacco and corrupt liter
ature to minors have long since illus- j
trated the duty of the state to protect !
immature youth. Gladstone's great
saying, that it is the chief purpose of
law to make it as hard as possible to
do wrong and as easy as possible to
do right, applies permanently to laws
for the protection of minors. No in
telligent view of personal liberty justi
fies turning infants loose to play with
poisons and razors. The most in
spiring watchword of reform is, "Give
the boys a chance." They have no
chance if left upon the street at night.
All the doleful prophecies of what
the laws could or could not do have
been answered by ten years of histo
ry. The testimony of the cities which
have rejected these shallow objec
tions and tried the curfew is uni
formly favorable. The law has not
destroyed civil liberty, nor promot
ed communism; it has not proved to
be incapable, not even difficult of
enforcement, but has been well ob
served. It has decreased juvenile
crime and vice. It has checked the
alarming growth of hoodlumism. A
chief of police who opposed the or
dinance at first repented as he heard
the steady patter of little feet, home
ward bound, passing his office door,
. at each ringing of the bell. W.C.T.

Captain Hiul No Right to Tnko Command
of Maria Teresa.
Washington, D. C., Nov. 15.—Nothing
but the Influence of his personal friend,
Commodore Crowninshleld, chief of the
bureau of navigation, can prevent Cap
tain Ira Harris, who commanded the
Vulcan when the Maria Teresa was
abandoned, from, being court martial
It hns leaked out at the department
that Captain Harris deliberately vio
lated an important naval regulation
when he assumed command of the Spa
nish cruiser, and while holding this as
sumed command, abandoned her to her
Captain Harris was placed in com
mand of the Vulcan. The Maria Teresa
wa, in command of Captain Chitten
den of the Merritt Wrecking Company,
and the secretary of the navy aione
had it in his power to change this con
dition of things and place Harris in
command of the former Spanish ves
Harris, therefore, directly violated a
naval regulation.
Such an action would have been Im
possible for an officer of the regulat
service, but Harris, who entered the
volunteer service at the outbreak of
the war, is is believed, was rusty In
his knowledge of naval regulations.
When his dispatch announcing that he
had abandoned the Maria Teresa was
received, all the officers of the depart
ment took it for gsanted that by the
word abandoned he meant that the
Vessel had foundered at sea.
They never for a moment believed it
possible that he deserted the Spanish
vessel while she had a chance to float,
which turned out to be the case.
All these facts are now being con
sidered by the secretary of the navy
and the result will probably be the
court martial of Captain Harris.
Major Garcla'a Views.
New Tork, Nov. 15.—Major Justo
Garcia, son of General Calixto Garcia,
who Is now in New York visiting his
mother and invalid sister, was at the
junta at 56 New street yesterday.
Major Garcia has suffered from trop
ical fevers, and came here to recuper
ate his health.
Major Garcia has been staying with
his mother at 165 Lenox avenue. He
said yesterday that he expected his
father here before long and this ex
pectation was confirmed by a dispatch
from Havana which announced that
General Garcia had arrived there en
route to Washington. This dispatch
Major Garcia lead In the morning pa
pers. He said:
"The sanitary condition of Santiago
was never better. General Wood can
not be too highly praised for what he
has done to preserve the health of the
inhabitants of that city. The climate
of Cuba is naturally hard upon any
person visiting it from a northern clime
and the death rate there still contin
ues high, but conditions are immeasur
ably improved.
I "Politically every Cuban who has
even a little head of his own trusts In
the faith of the United States. No

ble government is the aim of the Uni
ted States and there is nothing Cuba
needs more now."

If dishonorably discharged from the
