NOVEMBER 3, 190n REPOR TS MILL f CASES OF CRUELTY President of American Humane Association Says Society Han- dlesThatNumber Each Tear. CAPONS TOO LARGE FOR THE' COOPS KNNUAL CONVENTION AT FAIR. Mrs. Mary Totten of Washington Declares Parents Often Help Employers to Evade Xaw Against Child Labor. At leart 1.13,052 cases of cruelty to anl fcals and liuman beings have been report ed In the United Staic3 in the last year, according to Mr. James M. Brown of To ledo. O., president of the American Hu teane Association, which met yesterday rirornlng m Ubrary Hall at the World's Vaii for the first session of the twenty tenth annual convention. Mr. Brown hfcde this statement Jn his annual address. Ijr. Brown stated that many of the socle Us In the United States did not keep rec ords, and for that reason the full extent ejthe reported cruelty could not bo known. "(According to the reports of the few so cieties which keep accurate records, 16,334 cases of cruelty had been reported to chil-l oren and 124,83) to animals. Basing- statis tics on the records of tho societies which keep accurate records, Mr. Brown stated that the reported cruelties In tho United States exceeded a million by otct 100,000. "Cruelty exists In a greater or less ex tent la every community," stated Mr. Brown. "Owing to the fact that many or the offences of this kind are committed behind closed doors wo will never know Its exact extent. Boccnt investigations in animal .. psy chology, continued air. Brown, "show that mind Is not a possession of'man alone, but that animals also have a largo bare of what we call mind. Animals pos sess love, pity, sympathy, affection, and they are endowed with a sense of duty. Tho possession of these qualities makes nrt offense against them as wrong as cruel ty against a human being." Mr. Brown accounted for the vicious na ture of some persons by the fact that primltivo man was compelled to struggle for food, often being compelled to extermi nate his fellow-creatures In order to live himself. SENTIMENT STRONGER THAN LAW. Discussing the question of "Our Conflict With Cruelty," Doctor Albert Lefflngwell stated that there were three rules which the society should follow In seeking legis lation against cruelty. "First," Mr. Lefflngwell contended, 'leg islation concerning specific cruelties is of value not only as a method of prevention, because of fear of penalty, but because It Mammoth Chickens Attract Much .. Attention.at the Fair ManyY Poultry 'Exhibitors Win "K Prizes. Capons weighing as much as the average turkey are on exhibition at the World's Fair Pouiry Show In Barn No. IS. -These chickens are attracting much attention nnd the coops are constantly surrounded by large crowds. The canonized fowls are of the largest breeds and the specimens shown are the largest ever exhibited. Tho r.intl coops furnished for chickens are too small to accommodate Uie capons, and the bis birds are compelled to. stoop and other wise cramp themselves.

Whenever legislation Is possible Jt should be asked for, though Immediate results are not to be expected. "Secondly," contended Mr. Lefflngwell, ' ' In asking for legislation, do not ask for too much. In the Interest of the animals themselves,, ls It not better to ask for a wuutmnauoa oi recognized abuses upon IVhlch all nfrrf than tn nAi,4 mahuu. rlons that will not be put Into law for a "nnallr." said Mr. Lefflngwell. "with out Uie approval and support of public sentiment, legislation must ever be Im potent to effect reform. The greatest task before us In the conflict with cruelty is tho creation of that, sentiment. The-real obstacle before us Is Ignorance and Indlf rerence. Regarding some or the worst of the common cruelties the world does not care, because It does not know." Discussing the matter, of cruelty to chil nren ni factories and needed reform, Mrs. ??ry ?P,ot Washington, v. a..sald: The lawmakers may amuse themselves with making regulations, but these do not Bffect the practice in tho factories and mines. Here we come to a most extraor dinary feature. Children employed at an early age In the coal mines are actually the TICtlm Fit trlnln alllnn.. ....?. the companies, the parents and tho unions. In tho determination that chUdren shall S work at an early age. tho union backs the areata, and tho companies want the chll ren and there Is no appeal. When chil dren are needed In enterprises often the ignorant parents are leagued together with the companies to evade the laws and loreo their own children Into degrading and wasting labor."
