THE AKIZONA REPUBLICAN: TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 27, 1896.
7 I DIET AS A MORAL AGENT. Experiment Introduced la a New York Reformatory. A queer food experiment is being 1 ried at Ihe Elmira reformatory, in New York state, says the St. Louis Globe Itemocrat. All civilized nations hold out some inducement to the criminal in :onfinement to sooner secure his release from legal restraint. A certain amount cl time i always taken off for good be havior. The criminal has often been exhorted to this end by father, mother, brother, t-ister and by others who had' his interest at heart. His manhood, his future, his ambition and his hope of 'juick releAj from confinement have been appealed to, and in many cases in vain. Now it is to the man's stomach, that the appeal is to be made. The proposed experiment contem plates a somewhat enlarged scale of die tary privileges, increasing from grade to grade, from lowest to highest, so That within due and proper limits of indulgence of the appetite by prisoners in a prison reformatory for crime they can outr f their own accumulations have the privilege to select meal by meal at their pleasure, provided always that they keep their expenditure within the limits of indulgence allowed by the government of the reformatory. The prisoner, under the wage-earning sys tem of the reformatory, ;is it is at pres ent, must earn their living and keep a credit balance to their account, re spectively, in order to progress toward their release by parole. A prisoner, to maintain a credit balance must needs restrain, regulate and exert himself in a manner which accomplishes and' shows his improvement; but. hitherto the diet rate has been inflexible. It is believed that if more latitude is allowed and the prisoner has a chance of tick ling his palate occasionally with mince pie, a juicy roast or otiier homelike dainties, he will be more likely to make an extra effort to reform. In other words, ' he has an inviting menu to choose from for breakfast, dinner and supper, he will get up and hustle and be a man. CATCHING A TARTAR. The Brave and Effective Resistance of an Intended Victim Highway robberies, even under mod ern name of "hold-ups," which alters nothing of their character, have become decidedly rare in the far northwest; and they are likely to become still rarer if all intended victims make as brave and effective resistance as did a grocer of r.ainder, Washington, recently. This grocer, whosee name is Hubert, started from Rainier with his wagon one night to go to Tacoma to buy goods. With him was a 13-year-old boy: He carried $106 to pay for his purehases. While he was about two miles from Eoy and on a lonely road two highway men stepped out, confronted the grocer, pushed a pistol into his face, and com manded him to dismount and hand over his money. Hubert had no notion of giving up the money, but he did not waste any time in thinking up a plan for beating the rob bers. He began to get down from the wagon as if to comply, and as he did so he struck the rascal who held the pistol a terrible blow which felled him to the ground. Hubert the came down with one heavy foot upon the wrist of the hand which held the revolver. While the robber was in this position, the grocer snatched the weapon away from him and pointed it at the other rascal. It turned out that the second robber had no pistol. Hubert com manded him to put up his hands, which he did. Meantime the first man was insensi ble from the terrible blow which Hu bert had dealt him. Hubert made'the second hold up his hands for ten min utes, until the first had recoverad his senses. Then he commanded the first to get up, and told them both to march, which they did. Thus the grocer took them both into the town cf Roy, the boy driving close behind with the horses and wagon. At Roy the thwarted highwaymen were turned ver to a constable and locked up, and the grocer went on his way to Tacoma. POWER OF SYMPATHY. When Needed It Is Generally to Be Found. He was only an Italian fruit vender. There was nothing about him at all likely to inspire the beholder with feel ing, one way or another. He was not ragged enough to call for especial sym pathy, nor unkempt enough to provoke disgust. Yet to the policeman on his beat he was undoubtedly the object of considerable animadversion. This was evidenced by the unrelen ting vigor with which he was pursued from corvner to corner by the over-zealous guardian of the law. The other day, says the New York Mail and Express, in a too hurried re sponse to the everlasting order to "move on," the fruit peddler's cart was upset, and his peaches and peers were scat tered over the ground and across the street car track. The enraged police man could hardly restrain the impulse to use his club. "The dirty loafer," exclaimed h. "He did it on purpose just trying to excite sympathy." "He has succeeded, then," said a soft voice at the officer's elbow, and a neat little woman stooped and began to gather up the scattered fruit. . The officer's face reddened. He hes- itated a mcmrct, find 1hr, he, too, joined in the work cf r( r ioraticn. After that the Italian v. ;;s seen peace fully plying his trade on his accustomed beat, unmolested by his old enemy, $he policeman. SPOKE HIS MIND. Grand Dnke Vladimir Criticised In Bis Own Presence. A refreshing story is told in the col umns of the Frankfort Gazette: The czar intrusted Count Pahlan, a liberal- minded man, with an inquiry into the causes of the terrible disaster at Mos cow on the occasion of the coronation, and the count did not hesitate to tell his majesty, in the presence of Grand Duke Vladimir, that he would have done better not to put the superintendence of the coronation festivals into the hands of the grand duke. This frank declara tion staggered the emperor, who asked Count Pahlen to advance his reasons. The count answered: "The grand dukes are in their right place in the army and navy, but if they have to do with purveyors and purveyance the-y must be cheated." The Grand Duke Vladimir protested against this, but smilingly Count Pahlen reminded him of his own bad experience in connec tion with the building of the memorial church to Alexander II. In consra.uence of this frank attitude of Count Pahlen, the minister of justice was ordered to continue the inquiry. He succeeded in clearing lip the dark affair but when the investigation begun to take a very disagreeable turn it was determined to submit it not to the ordinary court of justice, but to the ministerial council in other words, to burke it. ' Appreciated the Cider. - Some years soa well-known foreign prince, who owns a large estate in the midlands of England, invited his ten ants to a hunt breakfast, at which claret was the principal beverage. After the breakfast, and just before the hounds were thrown off, champagne was handed around in large cups, when one old fashioned farmer, after taking a long pull at one of the cups and smacking his lips, exclaimed: "Well, your royal highness, I didn't think much of that port wine we had at lunch, but I must say this cider is the best I ever tasted." Rainilaiarivonys Wealth. Rainilairivony, the late Malagassy ex prime ministef, had feathered his nest Well. He left 50,000 head of cattle, 2,000 slaves, 20,000 ounces of gold dust, $1, 000,000 in the Bank of England, $75,000 worth of goods in his own house, a palace, and other buildicgs at Antana narivo, the land on which the Trench resident general is builr. for which France pays $2,400 a year, three inland farms, roal estate at Tamatave, and half the profits of a gold mice consession made to an English coirpany. He is believ;d to have left besides treasure concealed at Ambohlmanga and other parts of Madagascar. It is new to guarantee tea satisfactory. Schilling's Best is so guaranteed by your grocer. Why ? Because we sup ply him the tea and the money. It is such tea as you will be glad to get besides. A Schilling 5c Company San f ranasco 391 OFFICIAL CALL. The Fifth National Irrigation Congress, Los Aneeles. Cal., Sept. 5, 189S. To tbe People of t)he United States of America: Pursuant to itihe order of the Fourth Irrigation congress and to designation bv he National executive oommibtee, the fifth annual session of tine National Irrigation congress will be held in the city of Phoenix, Arizona, upon the dates of December 15, 16 aad 17, 1890. The membership of the body will be made up as follows, in accordance with the resolutions of the Third and Fourth congresses: 1. All members of tiie National ex ecutive committee. 2. All members of state and terri torial irrigation commissions. 3. Five delegates at large, to be ap pointed by their respective governors, for each of the following states and territories: Arizona, California, Colo rado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Ne braska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Da kota, Texas, Utoh, (Washington and Wyomang. 4. Three delegates at large for each state and territory not heretofore enumerated, to be appointed by tihe governors of said states and terri tories; or, in the case of the District of Columbia, by the president. 5. One delegate each, from regularly organized irrigation, agricultural and ' horticultural societies, and societies of engineers, irrigation companies, agri cultural colleges, and commercial bod ies, such as boards of trade, chambers of commerce, eta 6. (Duly accredited representatives of any foreign nation or colony, each member of the United States senate and house of representatives, and each governor of a state or territory will be admitted as honorary members. The work of the National Irrigation congress has now continued for more than five years. The first session was held in the city of Salt Lake, Utah; the second in Ivos Angeles, California; the third in Denver, Colorado; and the fourth in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Each session was marked by keen in terest and by intelligent and effective work in the cause of irrigation and the reclamation of the arid lands of the west To the sessions have come the brightest minds of the Union, seek ing to solve in concord the vexed ques tions upon the solution of which de pends the further development of the western and west central plains. The work has not 'been without its fruit. Interest has been awakened in points remote from the irrigated regions and the reclamation of the waste areas is now regarded in all justice as one of the most important problems awaiting legislation. The coming session at Phoenix will, it is not doubted, be the most effective of all. Particularly prominent will be made ithe discussion of points of legis lation in order that well-digested meas ures 'be prepared for the consideration of the federal congress and of the state legislatures. Though able au thorities will 'be in attendance and have been placed upon the programme for the 'presentation of subjects of techni cal and economic interest, it is de signed that the fifth congress shall be a body with work far more general than has been the case in any of its predecessors. Addresses presenting subjects shall be limited to fifteen minutes and the subsequent discussion to half an hour, this ruling of the ex ecutive committee not applying, how ever, to the discussion of legislation or resolutions. The city of Phoenix, chosen for the location of the fifth congress, is in every way well adapted. It is a thrifty and progressive city of 12,000 inhabi tants, the capital of the territory of Arizona, and is excellently well pre pared for the reception of even the thousands who will come to attend congress. Its 'local committee of ar rangements and reception ds already at work and the promise is extended that i every visitor will be furnished with the best of accommodations at prices even lower thaa usually charged locally. The city is situated in the midst of the richest irrigated valley in America, that of the Salt river, whose irriga tion works of the grandest magnitude are to be studied works that have transformed the parched plains into wondrous orchards and vast fields of alfalfa. Ample opportunity will be af forded delegates to inspect all points of interest without cost. Railroad rotes will not exceed a single fare for the round trip from all points between Chicago and the Pa cific ocean; details1 o transportation and ticket limitation to be later an nounced by the interested railroads. Passengers may be routed into Phoe nix over either the Santa Fe or South ern Pacific railway systems. Oppor tunity at low cost will be given for side trips to the Grand canyon of the Colorado, to the City of Mexico, to southern California and other points. It is especially desired that govern ors and others with the power of ap pointment advise the secretary of the executive committee at as early a date as possible of the names of the ap pointees, and correspondence will be welcomed by the secretary upon all the details antecedent to the congress.
