WS ' evmrr m 'asa - 'PEDTSBUEG-- DISPATGH 'MONDAY, .ARLL -22, ' v ?,,. A-SffflLLNG STUDY. Why .Are There More Young Crimi nals Now Than Ever Before? MORE MARCH JDVEH1LE TRIALS la the Courts Than Could -be Counted Up in Fire Tears -Back. IB IT DDE TO MDEDEEEES' ESCAPES? Since "hangm s played out in Alle gheny county," the study of murder statis tics will startle thousands who, to maintain selfish comfort, never look on the dark side of the picture. The last man hanged in this city was a poor colored fellow, who had no money of consequence to use in his defense, and he was sent to glory before the old jail was torn down, which was seTeral years ago. Since then between CO and 109 people hare been tried for murder, and- there hare been many murders committed within he county for whom no one has been tried. In this respect it would seem, that criminals know better how to work the telegraph and other supposed thief-catching appliances than do the authorities. 'Squire Patterson, who has been in the Quarter Sessions Court about all the time since the close of the Mexican War, ob serves that, about 35 years ago, when Dave Jewel was hanged for committing what would now be regarded as a rather trivial offense murdering a man in heat ot blood this county was so excited over it that the trial and final scene were an actual hindrance to the prosecution of business. People at that time took an interest in each other, whether related or not. IT DISCOUNTS A MURDER. Kow a trial for assault and battery, where the parties are in any manner prominent, will draw more people to the lobby of the Criminal Court than will the trial of an or dinary murderer. There must be something dramatic, or at least out of the usual order, to draw. Stick a pin there, reformers. The people who furnish business for the criminal courts will not read tracts; and ate not likely to get any good out of them if they do. It has been remarked by some observers that the faces of the colored brother and sister have been unpleasantly often ex hibited in the Quarter Sessions of lata years; but this is not to be wondered at much, as this being a labor center, tough citizens among the colored population round about are drawn here more largely than usual of late, aud frequently get into trouble before they are assimilated. The contrast has not been so marked of late as during the December session. But the most painful part of the picture presented is the spectacle of so many boys who are tried nowadays. 'Squire Miles Bryan says there have been more boys tried for crimes of nearly all grades this term than during all the previous time he has been connected with the court. The boy Draper, who was sentenced for murder on Saturday, was under 20 years of age. There were, it is true, extennating circumstances in his case, but it would seem that he had used his "pop" without caring to inquire very closely whether he was or was not in danger. ABE OLD OSXS REFORMING? In view of the general juvenility of offenders, one is tempted to inquire whether more mature criminals are reforming, or have they acquired skill to escape the law? You can depend on it, in most cases that a boy's mother, if he have one, will be in court to say a good word for him, and Judge ilagee is certainly "affording all the room for reformation that it is possible for him to give. Most of the boys have so far been let off with sentence suspended over their heads; but it Trill probably ie bad for them if they get tack again. In some instances the payment of costs is probably sufficient punishment for parents who may have been fjuilty of contributory negligence in the care and education of the boys. Uow this juvenile depravity does not grow out of the immediate use of whisky, though much of it may be the result of the fathers having eaten sour grapes; possibly, mothers also. Ex-Warden Smith, whose connection with the jail for a quarter of a century, makes him authority1, also notes that more youths have been on trial in the Criminal Court this March session than in any five-year period previously. Without attempting to discuss the matter, it may be pertinent-to remark that, in the opinion of many intelligent and observing people, jhe diffusion of a modicum of edu cation has not been followed by the results anticipated. While it is true that the cities present more numeroas and more alluring vices to youth than does the country, yet in the cities the schools are so far superior that one might expect to note some improvement in morals resulting; but such is not the case. ABXORHAL BUBAL CAGES. Though the county districts develop here and there a monster of frightful mien, such cases are abnormal, while in the cities they seem to be a common product. It is probable most people will argue that the treatment must be prophylactic S. P. O'Briei, Humane Agent, takes this view, and he can give instance upon instance where reforms have been effected through the agency of the society in ferreting out causes of crime. .Discomfort is a prolific source. As a rule poor people have too many children, but they cannot be con verted to Malthusianism, and the sporadic cases indicating a crude tendency in that direction, which develops in the Crimi nal Court from time to time, prove nothing. Were the doctrine of the human population restrictionist to prevail, it isn't likely that the cause of morality and conse quent happiness would be forwarded. Neither tract nor evangelistic work of any kind reaches these people,and it is extreme ly doubtful whether they can be made to admire the self-denial that Bends millions to the Senegambians, etc., while squaloi and crime tatten on conditions produced by ignorance and sharp competition in the labor market. These boys are not all the children of foreigners. As a rule their faces are large ly composed of the distinctive American type which few, perhaps, can limn, bnt which almost everyone recognizes at a glance. Mothers' tears are wasted on the young imps as they stand in the prisoners' dock, and as they have no fear of being furnished with wings by the hangman there is no chord that can be touched. . That "ounce of prevention" ought to be applied promptly. No Wind Padding Here.

How a Man May Violate the Natural Right to Klde the Latter and the Acquired Bight to Sell the Former. The attendance at the Opera House meet ing last night dropped away somewhat John W. Moreland presided. The speaker of the evening was T. W. Mills, of .Chicago. He urged the importance of every man who is opposed to the saloon voting for the Con stitutional Amendment. If a man is op posed to liquor and wants its sale restrained by a high license, or by local option, or any other plan except prohibition, the speaker held it to be his duty to vote for the amend ment; if he does not it counts for the sa loon and helps to fasten the grip or the liquor interests still stronger in the United States. If the vote should be gotten out he had no doubt of the result being all that the temperance people couid wish. Mr. Mills devoted considerable time to the personal liberty phase of the question. He said all men have certain natural rights, but these carry with them corresponding duties: A man can only claim' these rights so long as he performes the corresponding duty. A man has a natural right to ride a horse; but it is his duty not to ride other men's horses against the owner's wishes. When he violates this duty he loses his natural right to ride a horse, and is put where he has no chances in this direction. He applied the same argument to the black smith and the farmer, following their avoca tions, and then took ut the saloonkeeper, asking what duty he performed toward so- J ciety that gave mm a xounaauon to tuo claim of a natural right to sell that which injures society. Little Drops of Water. These was the usual street meeting at Boss stret and Fifth avenue yesterday. Mrs. M. Sturgeon led the music, andMr,Andrew Bryce made the principal address. Attorney Pbice addressed a meeting in front of the Southside market yesterday after nood In the Interest of the prohibition amend ment. It was so windy and dusty that not a very large crowd was In attendance. Mr. Price only spoke for halt an hour, and was followed by Mrs. R. H. Jones. Mrs. L. E. Bailey, national organizer of tbeW. C. T. TJ., addressed a well-attended meeting in the W. C. T. U. rooms, Moorbead building, yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Bailey's main argument was tor national prohibition. The speaker characterized the struggle .as a war of the Christian and moral people against the saloon and its followers, or a war of heaven against hell. THE INCLINE RESUMES. Judge Mellon' New Engineers Ready to Go Ahead With Basinets. Judge Mellon went to the Southside yes terday and had a conference with the new engineers employed to take charge of the South Twenty-second street Incline. Start ing with to-day the incline will run as usual. An officer of the road said yester day, in regard to the matter: "If the old engineers had acted honorably with us this trouble would not have oc curred. They came to my house at mid night one night and demanded an increase in wages of 510 per month, and said if I did not promise them the increase they wonld not run the incline the next day. I was not in a position to promise them anything, and, while the matter was under considera tion, they quit" The gentleman stated that the new engi neers were men with 10 or 12 years' experi ence, and that everything had been ad justed satisfactorily. Slater and Brown, the retiring engineers, claim that they did not quit, and they have not left the city. They are still living on the hill. One of the citizens on the hill, who holds a monthly ticket, told a reporter vesterday that the majority of the ticket holders had been standing by ihe engineers, and walking up and down the hill.

THE MOONSHINERS ME IN WAIT With Guns for 11611 Who Eesemlle, or Eemind Them of Officers. A SOUTHERN PB0BLEM SOLYING ITSELF Mr. J. J. Hoblltzell, a firebrick maker who has works located in Alabama and works there a good part of the year, re cently returned from one of his trips. He was interviewed at the Monongahela House. Mr.- Hoblitzell admits that what Io do with the negro is a coming problem, but he takes exception to some of the remarks of Mr. Terry, of Birmingham, on this sub ject, published in The Dispatch some weeks ago. Mr. Hoblitzell said: "It is not true that the Southern Republicans are a lot of 'scal awags.' They represent some of the best people in the South. Four years ago a Southern gentleman told me that he was one of four men who contributed $5,000 apiece to elect Bepubllcan Congressmen, and yet he was not able to vote that,ticket His neighbors threatened to ostracize his family, and, rather than allow them to suffer, he-voted with the' Democrats. YOUNG BLOOD DBIVES IT OUT. "But I find that this old spirit of animos ity and strict arfnerence to one party is wearing away. The young men of the South are indeed progressive. They haven't time to nurse old feuds, and, better than that, they have no desire, to. Occasionally one runs across an ancient Bourbou who is as bitter as ever. "I claim that the negroes could be easily managed if the whites were so inclined. It J is true mat wnen you go into one oi tne black districts the people are very ignorant and clamorous for office. Thev want to rule before they are fitted for it by edu cation. Many of them are quick and active and learn easily. The whites say, Tou can make us vote the negro; but yon can't make us count his ballot' If you wttch the ticket receiver closely on election day, you will see the negro's vote dropped to the floor. It hardly ever goes into the box. This is how the work is done. "Some time ago I was in Kentucky. President Smith, ot the Louisville and Nashville road, asked ineto go over two routes they had surveyed in 'the mountains, and give him my opinion as to which one I thought was the better to catch the most coal trade. I ' STABTED ON HORSEBACK in company with Chief Engineer Fitzhagh. I noticed a man ahead of us we seemed to be following. Finally I asked Fitzhngh who the fellow wa. " 'Oh,' he replied, 'our friend ahead of us is a Scotch-Irish Methodist minister. 1 have taken him along to preach to the people and tell the moonshiners we are not deputy mar shals. I doubt if we should come back alive if I hadn't taken this precaution.' "When we got into the mountains Fitz hngh commenced to point out the places where murders had been committed. We were in the famous feud country where whole families are frequently deci mated"1 for trivial causes. Here some body had been killed in a political fight; over there a number had been massacred, and we came across a church where, a short time before, a regular fusilade of bullets had been poured into the logs. I was GETTING SCARED, and I told Fitzhugh th'at if he kept on relat ing his tales of blood I wouldn't go any further. '"After a time we came to a point! where the paths divided. Fitzhugh said it was only three miles across the country to Sny der's creek, hut it was nine miles around by the road. He wasn't sure that the moonshiners v-ould permit us to take the short cut However, we thought we would try it, and we hadn't gone very far before I heard something like the click of a trigger on an old musket be hind me. Turning around I saw the bushes part, and two moonshiners came out with drawn rifles. They ordered us to stop. We explained at once that we were not deputy marshals, hut, whether they believed us or not they were not willing to take any chances. They positively refused to allow us to pass through their territory, and we had to go back." FOR NERVOUS DEBILITY TJne Horaford's Acid Phosphnte. Dr. H. T.
