THE WORD "CRIMINAL"
MERELY A HAT CHECK
1 : ^
| America's foremost criminologist
was asked to make a study of tho four
[ New York gunmen, now under sen
i tenco of death for the murder of Her
man Rosenthal, the gambler. He re
fused, but made the following com
ment:
"Statements that Gyp the Blood,
Whltey Lewis, Lefty Louie and Da
go Frank are a new type of criminal
are absurd. There is no such thing
as a new type of criminal.
"The word criminal Is simply a hat
check that calls for a whole lot of
peoplo who commit anti-social acts.
From a hat check no one is able to
tell what kind of a hat Is on the shelf,
and the word criminal does not re
veal anything more than a hat check.
To say that a man is a criminal or
a criminal type means nothing more
than that he has committed anti-so
cial acts.
"Anti-social acts are regulated by
laws and customs. Acts that wero
considered perfectly proper a hun
dred years ago are considered anti
social today. They may be anything
from accepting a rebate?an antiso
cial act that waB not regarded as crim
inal ten years -ago?to the crime of
murder. So that to speak of a man
as a criminal or type of criminal
tells one practically nothing. Conse
quently, to speak of a new type of
criminal is equally meaningless.
"These men are no different from
hundreds of men who have commit
ted anti-social acts in the past. The
handsome, well-dressed lawbreaker
we have always had with us. Recall
to your mind the celebrated murder
ers of history. Many of them wero
dandies?many of them were noted
for their fine faces, many were scni
pulously neat about their persons.
"There is nothing remarkable In the
fact that their faces do not reveal
any of the deformities supposed to
characterize 'criminal typeB.' The
theory of Lombroso that certain phy
sical deformities went hand in hand
.. ?
with mental and moral deficiencies
and vice versa is not regarded as
seriously today as It once waB. There
Is a certain amount of truth under
lying the theory, but Its importance
has been greatly exaggerated.
"To be Bure, In penitentiaries and
inBane asylums a large number of
persons with physical doformltles will
be found, but people with tho same
deformities will be found walking up
and down Broadway and riding on our
subway and elevated trains. The fact
that they possess such deformities
does not stamp them as 'criminals'?
to employ the hat check again?nor
does tho lack of them indicate that
they arc without impulses and desires
to commit anti-social acts.
"Gyp tho Blood, Lofty Loulo, Dago
Frank and Wbltey Lewis are no dif
ferent from scores of other young
men who are to be seen in cafes and
restaurants on the Great White Way
night after night In that section of
the city one is apt to find them dining
at the next table. To drop Into the
vernacular of Broadway, they fre
quent the Great White Way because
the picking there is easy. We label
them as criminals because they com
mit snti-social acts, but there is noth
ing now about them. We always
have had and always will have the
gentlemanly appearing evildoer in our
midst
"Tho most interstlng tact is that
most of them are on the outside rather
than the Inside of our penitentiaries.
"We alienists have long been at
tacked by lawyers. The trouble has
been that lawyers and doctors can
never agreo on definitions. They
are talking in terms of one thing
while we are talking in terms of an
other. The questions asked alienists
by lawyers are as absurd as asking
'How much does a Beethoven sym
phony weigh'
"The word criminal is one of the
most misused words In the English
language. It is simply a hat check."
PETERSBURG MAN
BOOSTS JUNEAU
Joe Webber, the strenuous booster
and business man of Petersburg, took
passage on the Alki for his home this
morning. Webber has the boosting
habit?he said some nice things about
Juneau, while 021 the deck of tho Al
ki. "You people of Juneau," he said,
"are the salt of the earth?the best
people on earth. I'm coming back in
a few days and I'm going to bring Mrs.
Webber along?yes and the bears and i
eagles." He has a menagarle down {
at Petersburg.
"Juneau has a chance to go ahead
now." he said, but the town must keep
abreast of the times. You need moro
buildings. Your rents are high?juBt
a little too high to encourage men
coming with a business proposition."
[ALKI HAS SLIGHT MISHAP.
The steamer Alki arrived in the
harbor about 2 o'clock this morning
bringing Ave tons of freight for Ju
neau and a heavy cargo of lumber and
machinery for the Alaska-Gastineau
Company's development work at
Sheep creek.
The steamer was a long time dock
ing on account of an accident to the
reversing engine. A broken rod made
the engine useless. Machinists from
the Juneau Iron Works were called in
to make repairs. It was expected that
the ship would be ready to sail by
noon.
