THRUSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1906. ALHUOUEKQUR EVKttlNCi CITIZEN. THEVERYTK0U6HT OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENT IS HORRIBLE, MONSTROUS DEVILISH .Amusements., jj doooooooooo By Cov. Edward W. Hoeh, of Kansas. The Kansas law concerning capital punishment 1 peculiar. It provide for the death sentence, not however, 10 bo executed until the expiration of one year, and then only on the order of the governor. No governor ever has and I think none ever will take he personal responsibility of ordering the execution of any convict. It Is not exact, therefore, to speak of the nonenforcement of the law. I believe It ought to be repealed, not because of Its nonenforcement, but be cause it U a foolish provision which makes Us execution optional with the governor, with no probability that he will ever exerclBe the option but In one way. The evolution of civilization Is per haps attested in no field bitter than in the field of penology. Civilization has changed the old theory and prac tices concerning the penalties for crime. Formerly it was lnlllcted as a matter of Justice, that is, justice in the sense of an eye for an eye, a tooth (or a tooth, the sense of getting even with the fellow. Criminals were boiled in oil, they were put upon iron racks and their limbs drawn from their sockets by machinery, they were put in barrels with sharp spikes on the Inside and ridden down declivities, they were burned at the stake, they were cruci fied and left to die a slow, agonizing death, they were guillotined and their heads exposed to gaping throngs. But gradually these barbarous prac tices, the result of devilish theories, yielded to the milder punishment of the gallows. These hanging exhibi tions drew great crowds, who came to the exhibition ground as people now go to an exposition, and venders of knickknacks did a thriving business. Again civilization got In its work with the conclusion that these public exhibition brutalized the spectators and contributed to the crimes they were intended to prevent and punish. Now criminals are hung inside of in cisures and only a few selected wit nesses are brutalized by the grewsome performance. This last relfc of bar barism is now giving way to the more refined way of snapping the life cord In a comfortable and luxuriantly cush ioned chair with a sufficient number of electric volts to give the Job the character of neatness and dispatch. Civilization will soon relegate this final method of taking life to the ash heap, where it belongs. The fatal defect of the capital pun ishment theory is that It cheapent life instead of magnifying It. The criminal usually take life hurriedly without much deliberation, but the J -A ISM r ::; ; U i - L - A ' " 'J HON. EDWAR I) W. HOCH. law takea plenty of time and does it deliberately. It is based on an entirely erroneous view of life and of its source and of ita sacredness. I can understand how the atheist or the materialist with their Ideas of the nothingness of this life and the here after can consistently believe in cap ital punishment, but how a Christian, one believing In the Bible, in immor tality and In the preparedness neces sary in this world for bliss in the next, and of the awful conditions of the lost throughout eternity, can be lieve In and consent to a theory that would plunge a human soul Into that eternity and Into that immortality un prepared is beyond my comprehen sion. Do you say the prisoner is given time for repentance? But suppose he doesn't. Would the time ever come when you would voluntarily plunge your brother or father or son Into that eternity and take the risks which K Involved T To me the thought is sim ply horrible; It Is monstrous, it ds devilish. I would resign any office in the gift of the people before I would be per sonally responsible for plunging a human soul into eternity, except as a matter of absolute necessity and self defense, or as a necessity of national salvation In a war. Can you conceive, I speak It rever ently, of the Ideal Man, who gave His own life for the blackest criminal as well as for the purest soul, can you, I say, conceive of this greatest and sweetest Man who ever walked the earth, adjusting the black cap, fixing the noose, springing the trap and plunging an immortal soul Into eter nity? If capital punishment, therefore, Is wrong. Inherently wrong, Its results cannot be good any more than thistles can grow figs, and hence it must be true, as stated, that crime abounds to a greater extent In states having capital punishment than in states which have abolished this larbarism. As to Kansas, I do not believe there are 1,600,000 people anywhere else on earth more prosperous, more moral, more law abiding and less affilcted with crime and its consequonces, and where human life is safer. OOOOOCOOOOOOC FRANKLIN-HUSTON ORPHtLIM SHOW SATURDAY NIGHT Capacity audiences are the best proof of the merits of the Franklin Huston Orpheum Show. High-class vnrtviii ure the loading amuse ments and this company has the best acta from the Orpheum circuit, fea turing the Prof. Slgumotn troupe of Japs. This is undoubtedly the best aggregation of acrobatic performer that has ever appeared on any mage and act is said to be the most ex pensive on the road. Little "Tots" the babv Jap, is an object of especial In terest, the ladles wanting to kidnap him and the small kids took as if they would like to take him home to play with. This is only one of the many features to be presented at Elks theater, Saturday night, January 27, for one night only. "OLE OLSON" HERE TUtSDAY, JANUARY 30 The Northland singer, Mr. Ben Hen dricks, In his play, "Ole Olson," is scoring a great success wherever it has been produoed. It is a play that leaves a pleasant Savor behind, a flavor of rustic romance and brave deeds of goodness and simplicity ris ing triumphant over frustrated vil lainy and irritating misconceptions In the third act, which is short and sweet. Mr. Hendricks Is an actor of the type made familiar years ago by Joe. Emmett. He has a voice of singular pathos and power and his singing has the peculiar quality which suddenly clarifies the imagination and for the moment lifts the hearer quite out of himself. With all this he is an actor of uncommon grace and spirit, has a fine presence and winning face and a Swedish accent that is equal to any linguistic emergency. He will sing six new songs during the action of the play. Mr. Gray has surrounded Mr. Hendricks with a very strong company. At Elks opera house, Tues day, January 30.

When there was some talk of Rube Waddell being sold to Boston, one ol the Hub newspapers gave as the prin cipal reason why 'he would not like the town the fact that bars close at 11 P. m.

O The term "socker" for association foot ball was Invented by Oxford un dergraduates from the third, fourth and fifth letters In association, with "cer" as an appendix. Let us hope the invention will not be copyrighted. The University of Chicago has taken steps to abolish intercollegiate sports, the Initial move being an attempt to do away with the association foot ball schedule. Pressure has been brought to bear against any games outside the university. 0 If Battling Nelson and Kid Herman come together. It will probalily be In Butte, next spring, for a purse of $15.- 000. Los Angeles and Hot Springs are anxious to secure the fight, but It Is not thought they will be able to meet the offer niado by the Montana town Hale Gear, who has been pitcher, fielder, manager and utility man In major and minor league clubs for a string of years, will play right field for the Birmingham team next sea son, which will give Harry Vaughan three men in the daisy patches who batted over .300 last season. John Humphreys, manauer of Terry McG.jvern. has posted Jl.OUO In New York, which be is willing to bet against $l,n0 that Terry knocks out Nelson in six rounds, when they meet at Philadelphia. Eastern critics think the oilils asked are too great 2 to 1 should be a tempting offer, according to expert opinion. D New York autumobilists will pur chase, a tract of ground in southern New Jersey for the purpose of build ing a 25-mile track for automobile rac ing. As automobile racing is now car ried on It is a moHt dangerous pas time, and is injuring the automobile In the eyes of the public. Automobile racing on mile tracks cannot continue, and when the course is over public roads It Is far from satisfactory. Chicago bowlers have just finished a twenty-four hour bowling contest, In which twelve two-men teams partici pated. There can be no practical or theoretical value to the. bowling world by Fiii'b contests and the diiuger to the participants is such that these en durance contests should be discour aged. The great strain on the bowling arm tends to weaken instead of strengthen the muscles. There Is all way the danger or the bowler going tittle, while the waste tissues Involved la endurance contests cannot be re gained as rapidly under ordinary con ditions because exhausted nature never recuperates as readily as ao merely tired muscles. It Is not prob able that bowlers of other cities will follow the senseless lead set by tne Chlcagoans. Soothing and Comforting.

As the plants which are combined with the ti .:s in the manu facture of Syrup of Figs are known to physicians to act most beneficially upon the system, the remedy has met with their general approval as a family laxative, a f..ci well worth con sidering in making purchases. It is because of the fact that SYRUP CF FIGS is a remedy of known quality and excellence, and approved by physicians that has led to its use by so many millions of well informed people, who would not use any p. :.'iejy of uncertain quality or inferior reputation.
