?:F ; DISPATCH, - rMONDAX: iTAlHJAIlT v28,- 1889: v 3 THE PITTSBURG STUDIES --Iff GRIMES. Eeal Surprises in a Current Report of Eiverside Penitentiary. WHAT CLASSES CONTRIBUTE TO IT. nationalities, Trades, Professions and Pro clivities of Felons. CAPL- WEIGHT'S CHIEF REFORMATIVE Did it ever occur to the reader that the great body of the criminals, the felons in AVestern Pennsylvania's principal prison, were contributed from among the adherents of Christian Churches? 'Well, it's a fact, account for it as you may. The biennial re port of the Western Penitentiary lies open on a desk before the writer, and it not only cays so, but gives the interesting figures to prove it. The report, addressed by In spectors Kelly, JlcCutcheon, Kced, Slagle and Trimble, and by Captain Edward S. "Wright, warden, to the Legislature, is just completed and ready for perusal. It covers the period from January 1, 1887, to De cember 31, 1888, and is full of very in structive data. For example, with regard to the religious contributions alluded to above: The report shows that, of the 262 prisoners received at the penitentiary in 1887, 85 were Catholics, 73 Methodists, 20 Presbyterians, 20 Luther ans, 19 Baptists, 12 Episcopalians, 5 United Presbyterians, 4 Campbellites, 3 United Brethren, 1 Hebrew, 5 of other religious be liefs, and only 9 mark the number of no religious belief whatever. That's a mighty good showing for the agnostics, dead sure! Just think of it! Less than 4 per cent of all the prisoners among 262 felons, who had no religious connection or belief whatever; and the others, each and every one of them, in the penitentiary as the representative of some church. For 1888 the ohowins is not significantly different: Catholics, 8fi; Meth odists, 79; Presbyterians, 30; Lutherans, 27; Baptists, 16; Episcopalians, 8; other reli gion's beliefs, 10, and of no religious belief whatever, 10, out of the 2G6 prisoners re ceived during the year still less than 4 per cent SOT ABGTJMEKTS AT ALL. These are the simple yet astonishing facts. The champions of religion will not argue therefrom, however, that churches and church association were a stimulus to this great pronortion of crime, but, on the con trary, that these hundreds of sinful hangers on had really absorbed or exercised nothing but that slender faith which, as all the churches teach, must be dead when unac companied by works, by abstinence from sin and crime. Having learned thus how the churches are represented among criminals, perhaps the reader would like to know what classes of foreigners, or rather what nativities, con tribute most largely to this prison's popula tion.'' "Well, here are the leaders, at set down in the official report, for the two years in which 528 prisoners were received : Ger many, 35; England. 24; Ireland, 23; Italy, 9; Canada, 5; Scotland, 5; Wales, 4; Sweden, 2, and Hungarv, Belgium, Poland, France and Switzerland. 1 each. Of the 28, 273 were born in the Keystone State, 41 in New York and 16 in Ohio. "But," aks some very inquisitive reader, "are most of those felons educated origno rant?" The chances are, if left to "answer his own-question, the rehder would answer it by guessing wrong again; for, in this re spect as in many others, the report is an eye opener, a painful surprise. Out of the 528 prisoners received in the two years, onlv 46 could neither read nor write, 66 could both read and write imperfectly, and 416 were among the readers and writers to whom the word "imperfect" need not be attached. That's bad, isn't it? Then 483 of these had attended the public schools, while think of it only 45 never went to schooll "That just shows what effect learning has on a mind that is really criminaHy inclined; it affords 'ue criminal tools with which to work," does someone say? Perhaps. On the other hand, what sort of weapons does it pnt into minds not criminally inclined the minds which makeup the va'st majority? MINERS, CLERKS, CABPEJfTERS. Sow do. von think you can guess what tradespeople are most numerous in their contributions to the penitentiary? Two to one you can't It's so unstable, this line of 6upply; it varies so. In the two years coal miners take the lead 15 in 1887, and 18 in 1888. But clerks were a bad second to the miners at the 14 in 1887, thongh they tall away to only 6 in 1888. "Would you ever suppose, tnougn, mat carpenters would stand on the third round from the top in the criminal ladder carpenters, the follow ers of the trade at which Jesus of Nazareth worked? Yet they do. There were six of them taken in in 188, though only four men could be counted who registered as having no ocenpation, as absolute vaga bonds. Then there were ten carpenters re ceived last year; but only two vagabonds among alLthose criminals. There were, in the two years, 184 "laborers" received, to be sure; but then that term, as applied to avocation, is so broad as to include almost every able-bodied man who has no trade or profes'sion. By the way, only four "pro fessional men" were received in the two years 1 architect, 1 schoolteacher, 1 sexton and 1 book agent Before getting down to theories, here are some more of the hard facts in the re port: The inspectors ask to have the Legislature appropriate for the uses of the penitentlarv in 1689-90: For finishing the south wing, 120,000; for two years' salaries, $70,000; books and sta tionery forlprisoners, $1,000. "And the usual gratuities to discharged prisoners." The number of prisoners confined in the pen itentiary January 1, 18S7. was 707; January L 1R88. C97; December 3L 1SSS. 683. Of the latter. 609 were white and 61 colored males, 8 white and 5 colored females; 163 single, 93 married and 10 widowed. The favorite, or at least the particular crimes for which prisoners were committed, were thoe against property 184 there being only 82 crimes against persons, or acts of violence. Larceny, burglary, forgery and counterfeiting lead in the lormer category, with 61, 9, 8 and 9 devotees respectively, while in crimes against the person the MOTJDERERS WEABTHE PALM of victory, numerically, an "unlucky 13" of them having "been rep eved last year 12 for second degree and one .first degree under com mutation, to remain for life. The long sen tence men who came last year yielded 1 for 25 years: 7 for 12: 3 for 11, and 7 for 10. During the vear 25 gpt in under second conviction to this prison, 9 under third. 2 under fourth and 1 nnder fifth. The average population of the prison for 1888 was 661: the highest, 702. There were idle in the prison at the close of the year 78 persons, the others being mainly employed thus: In matting shops, 412; at iron work on new building, 34; laborers and sweep ers. 41; cooks, 9,ctc The prison has discharged, since its opening, July L 1826, 8.S31 prisoners, of whom 1,022 have been pardoned, 236 have d cd, 4 have committed suicide, 33 escaped, 15 have gone outon habeas corpus and error writs and 39 have gone to insane asylums. Now for extracts from the report combin ing both fact and theory in most entertain ing and instructive form. The inspectors say: Large cells havo been provided in the new wing, according to the original plan, or promo tion for good behavior. As the building ap proaches completion we begin to realize tho vastness and extent of the work entered upon Foine ten years ago, and we congratulate the State upon the possession of a structure which, when finished, for beauty of design, excellence of workmanship, strength and adaptation for prison purposes, wilt be unsurpassed upon this continent, if not in the world. An important question demanding legislation ha recently arisen. On.the eastern side of the Snson projwrty Messrs. Hartman and Petrel a vc laid out a plan of lots In such a wav that the rear of said lots adjoin the outer walls of "rl,3,,u' auiois notoniv a direct menace to the stability ot the wall, but to the security of the prison. All efforts of the board to per suade these gentlemen to change their plan so as not to endanger the prison property have been without avail, and after consultation with the proper authorities we have concluded to ask for legislation to authorize the Governorto purchase for tho Commonwealth a strip of ground upon said prosperty that will be sum cientto prevent intrusion and injury. With, reference to the important subject of LABOR IN THE TRISON we desire to say that what is known as the "public account" system is now in operation. Usually an adequate appropriation is granted for plant and material, but our effort to secure such an appropriation at the last meeting of the Legislature was unsuccessful, and great difficulty has been experienced for want of capital. To meet the requirements of the law of 18S3, abolishing tho contract labor system, the Board of Inspectors were compelled to face the ques tion of employment for the prisoners commit ted to their charge, who were thus thrown idle, and, after careful consideration, they selected the manufacture of cocoa mate and matting. Notbwitbstanding the strenuous efforts of the warden and other officers who have taxed their ingenuity to the utmost to find employ ment for all the prisoners, yet, as before stated, it has been Impossible. For these unfortunates this is virtually re-enacting "solitary confine ment without labor," which is illegal and in human. But we congratulate ourselves that we are not so badlv off as some other States (notablv New York), which, from inimical and unreasonable legislation, has its whole prison population in idleness a condition alike dis astrous to the prisoner and society and very expensive to the taxpayer, and which, upon anv economic theory can at best be considered as the minimum of protection, at the maxi mum of cost The three great factors in prison manage ment and reform are labor, learning and re ligions service, and without the first the others become larcely inoperative. 853 Warden "Wright, than whom there is be lieved to be no more practical or efficient prison manager in America, speaks of the $150,000 that has been saved to the State by utiliziug convicts in the construction of the handsome new bnilding, and then has this to say of a reform that he wonld like to see inaugurated: A CLASSIFICATION SCHEME. One of the most prominent features In prison treatment is separate cellular confinement at labor, cither in the cells or otherwise, as may be provided. For many years it has not been practicable to carry out this direction of the law, as there have been more prisoners than cells. Sow the conditions are reversed, and proper legislation will doubtless be enacted suited to the case. Separate confinement is Tin itself a crude form of classification, butnot all that is needed. Other details, strengthening its force, are easily added when that essential feature is secured. A prisoner may be described as a lost citizen, whose recovery is earnestly desired by his fam ily, friends and society. If he belongs to the ranks of accidental criminals much may be none for him by a firm yet kindly method of control. If he is to he trusted when again a free man, the State should trust him while in her control. Classification should be tried in at least one of the penitentaries of this State. It is not an experiment although of slow growth; and for the accidental criminal, more than any other, means "the slow opening of the closed hand, the gradual restoral, not by a foreign power to which he has been given way, but-by humanity itself, which has held him for a time in a special care, and now gives him back to her self, to her own normal life, this prisoner whom she has never ceased to think of and treat as a true man." HIS FAITH IN KENNA. A I'ittsbnrgcr Returns from Washington With Several Ideas. Messrs. Samuel Bellman and 'Samuel Houston, of Butler street, have returned from a trip to "Washington. Speaking of politics in the capital city, Mr. Bellman said: "It is the general opinion of Democrats, and many Bepublicans, that Kenna, the Democratic candidate from West Virgina, will be re-seated, as there is practically very little opposition to him. "The inhabitants of the capital seem to attach very little importance to the Samoan affair, as it is not discussed very much. "The principal talk is on the tariff bill. In regard to the final vote on the latter, a curious mistake occurred. Biddlcberger, the Republican, had paired with a Demo crat on the preliminary votes, saying to him, 'Let us pair nntil the final vote,' mean ing -until before the final vote. The Demo crat however, took another meaning ont of it, and kept up the thing even on the final vote. As this was very close, it might have resulted differently had Biddleberger done as the Democrat did." ALLEGED BDEGLARS CAUGHT. A Brace of Yonncstown Crnclunren Captured Ont in Sharpsborir. Saturday evening Inspector Stevens, of the Southside, received a telegram from Toungstown, stating that two Poles, thought to be in this city, were wanted on a charge of stealing $350 and two gold watches. The Inspector located them in Sharps burg yesterday, and, early in the evening, had them lodged in the Twenty-eighth ward station honse, subject to advices from the Youngs town authorities. Enterprising Little Wash. The first number of a bright little paper, the "Washington Journal, contains an inter view with the parties who are pushing an electric light company in opposition to the home company. They say they will not use the Westinghouse system, as they are afraid ot the Supreme Court decision that was al leged to have given Edison the preference. They also claim an electric railroad will be run in connection with the plant A PROMISING NEW FIRM. Crumrine, Bane & Basset!, Successors to the Paper Dealer, Tbomns Palmer, Among most business men, who have spent a life's energies in building up a trade and establishing the reputation of their house, when their career nears its end, there seems to be a strong revulsion against trust ing the business in other hands, with other minds than theirs directing the affairs of their pet schemes which to them have been as children, watched and nursed from their infancy. They seem to forget that pro gressive America continually calls for new blood, new energy to k'eep pace with the ideas and desires of the new customers that a business house must constantly add to its rolls to assure its very existence. If the late Thomas Palmer, Esq., of the wall paper and decorator's honse, ifo. 416 Wood street, had any such scruples as these, after a business career of nearly 40 years in that line, the present firm, which has taken charge of the business, indicate that the reputation of the house will not deteriorate, but advance beyond the hopes of its former proprietor. The new firm is composed of Mr. Kennedy Crumrine, Mr. A. Clark Bane and Mr. Geoige A. Bassett, under the title ot Crum rine, Bane & Bassett, who will continue the business at the old stand and make many additions to their large stock of wall paper and decorators' articles, both wholesale and retail, as the styles and new departures in that line shall demand. They are all ex perienced men in the business, Mr. Crum rine having been in the business in Steuben ville, Mr. Bassett being connected with him and Mr. Bane having had eight years' ex perience as agent for Pusey & Kerr, to gether with otheTtxperience in the whole sale trade, which he will use to advantage as manager of the wholesale department. The firm already have a large stock on hands, including the bon-ton of the wall paper buyer's and decorator's art, and are renovating and enlarging their storeroom capacity, with a view of likewise increasing their power to please their patrons and the many they yet hope to consider such. In this respect they have taken hold with a will, and deservedly ask a share of the pub lic patronage of those wishing anything in the wall paper or decorator's line, either re tail or wholesale, and respectfully solicit a call of such, or notice at their rooms, So. 11G Wood street B.&B.
