lynching In Ala' :tniM This statement
was greeted with applause
latrreating IMacuaaloa
do absorbing did the problems Of
modern penology prove to the OH'
ference of Governor* thut the entire
afternoon session of three and Oae
lalf hours yesterday was occupied in
ita consideration. It was evidently
deemed one of the live topics of the
day The employment of convicts,
their sentences, theii treatment behind
prison wall?, compensation to th? lr
ikmllles for their labor, the ahlpplag
post, ull ree. ived uttention and nut
w'th varying views
The Governors bad planned to talk
about marriage ami divorce vestei in .
but could not reach this I ibjeet,
which may tie tak< B up to-night
The discussion Was opened by ?lo\
?rnor .lohn K Shafroth. whose gtat<
of Colorado has made a spediilty si
the stud> of the convict problem He
began b* ti lling of tlo dlrferen? IsaaM
which prevail in thl* n spe< t out?
class believes in punishment for ex?
ample, and thinks it should be certain
and severe, ot crime gad iillftnliy will
be rampant in the land
t wo Harmful t lewiiolnlrt.
Vet. he said, tins i? mistaken view.
Two hunured years ugo Kngl.tnd had
mo:, than lu'J capita: 1 itSBOO, yet the
punishments did not deter offenses
When the retribution is too severe. It I
aiskes It diffic lit -o sacure ceaeie
tlo tin. and many escape Justice. On Ml
there was torture, the dungeon, bread
and wat? i, yet the world knows lhat
this is not the way to prevent crime.
Therefore, the philosophy of the first
school is not well founded
A second class nay* that there t-ho'ild
be no severe punishment?no capital
punishment at all. no long sentence*. ?
and that the oardonmg power ahoiitd
be freely exercised f(,r many pardons
and commutations Many excellent
men. he added, believe in this, prompt-1
ed by humane ideas
This doctrine was thought dangerous]
try Governor Khafroth. wh'> said the |
?ourts might as welt be abolished If'
they do not Impose sentences that wllli
make criminals fear the law. or if
ihtlr Judgments are to be overturned
by use of the pardoning power.
Between the two claases mentioned.
Bald Governor Shafroth. Is to be found
the happy mean. Plana tried out In
Colorado have produced radical
changes in the reformation of crimi?
nals, and have resulted In lessening
Colorado's Refonna.
Tn the first pla^e. the certainty of
punishment Is a necessity. Second. :
T>a-dons should not be issued except
in the rarest cas'-s. He has granted,
but one in four years, he said Third,
.the indeterminate sentence is deslr-:
Certainty of punishment he felt to'
he the greatest deterrent, and the next
step after conviction is to let the ;
?r.minal ?>arn his own liberty. This,
is done by a maximum and minimum
sentence. Supposing a prisoner Is sent
up for ten to twenty years. If hlsj
behavior Is good, he Is released at the
sag of ten years. If he violates the
law. he is put back to serve out the
real Of the Indeterminate sent' nee. so '
Thit he has ever;.* incentive to good
Besides, for good behaiior and obe?
dience to prison rules he earns one
month off the first year, tao months
the second year, three months the third
year, four months the fourth year, five
months the fifth year six months the
sixth year, and six months for each
fear thereafter.
Again, and still further those pris?
oners who, by their conduct, are re?
garded by the warden as trustworthy,
are permitted to go out and work on
the roads This kind of labor gives ?
sdditior.a! time off to the amount of.
one-third of the time expended on the j

Altogether, by doing the very best ]
that he caov * man with si Indeter
minate sentence of ten to twenty years
may esrn his own release on parole
withjn four years and three months i
The guards are not armed. The:-'

who .-liini? he is Innocent of the rrlltl' ,

I In the prison the men make sh'>??

been no objection that they compete
with free labor, nor do the farmers
I kick because a torgi is operated.
I Three especially good pieces of roads
1 made by convicts were spoke of by
Governor Shafroth. One of these is
j the "Skyline drive.- near Canyon City.
I At first the new warden took the
j stripes off after ninety days. Now ne
Is going to leave them off altogether.
Many questions were asked the Col
, orado Governor before he could take
has seat. He said that he was not pre?
pared to pay convicts for their laoor.
but that he was very close to favoring
it. He said he had refund to pardon
men recommended to ciemer.cy by the
! Pardoning Board, this being his right
He ;,ae released a prisoner for thirty
days on parole, to go home and sec
his sick wife. To trust a nan and .

concluded, wi I develop ir. him a spirit

Somewhat different vi?wt. were taken
by Governor Simeon B. Baldwin, of
Connecticut, who spAt next. He told
of the various views of treatment of
prisoners, one b. ing the class.chI and
; on' the Italian, wliic.i i e s-iid was
good magazine talk, but wen mude up
of "sentimental humanitarians and
th-oretieai psychologists "
j One of Governor Baldwin's p-ngent
BhDta?and they were not few?was:
1 "Any theory of government that is not j
brand new stands presumptively die
credited to-day "
He caused a good deal "f interest in

Make this a Gillette Christmas
SOME of America's most substan?

Razors made in solid gold as
Christmas gifts for their
friends. Many wealthy
men buy a number of Gillette
sets for gift purposes every
Christmas and have done so
for years. These expensive
no srnoppiN
known the
sets are no different in shaving quality from our
Standard set at $5, but they show how the
Gillette is regarded. Dealers are showing
Holiday stocks of Gillettes, selected from over
forty different styles?every?
thing from silver-plated to solid
gold, at $5 to $50. Make your
selection early.
For a small gift, a Packet of
Gillette Blades at 50c. or $1.00 is
very welcome.

Negroes, said Governor Bleaae. had
been sent to prison for long terms.
Their parents might die, and they '
would be forgotten by trie world. With
no money to pay a lawyer, they woulU .
stay in the penitentiary. Many white
people were in the same condition. He I
had received petitions signed by the
best people, and when public sentiment
had clearly indicated Its desire, he had
considered himself the servant of the
people and had issued the pardon, ibis!
he did rep.-irdless of criticism.
Sometimes, said Governor Biease, ap- j
plication would be made for political
purposes bj his enemies, so that if he .
issued pardons they would be used ,
against him. There, he had to be care?

Make Law Supreme.
Governor loscph M. Brown, of Gcor- ,
' gla. said that the process ef law in
Georgia shall be supreme. He had
offered to turn out the entire militia of
? the State to protect order. He had
refused a pardon to a rich man. and
had won his re-election because of his
pledge sg>t to abuse the pardoning pow?
er. Ufa prisoners in Georgia, he saw,
are not paroled until they have served
ten years. j
Here Governor Francis E. MeGovern. !
of Wisconsin, chairman of the execu?
tive committee, called attention to the
lateness of the hour, and tried to get ?
consideration of the other topics for!

Conference Notes
It is always interesting to see In t ie
flesn men who are in the public eye
the country over through the news?
papers?men who have done somethi-.g

in a doubtful State, or something of
that sort. one looks unconsciously
f< r the resemblance to the newspaper
< uts. and even more searcbingly for
signs of just how the cartoonist
evolved his conception of each indi
So. In the Conference of Oovernors
