Work of ttie Conferenee of Charities anil
At the Sunday sesiort of the conference
of Charities held at St. Paul, in Plymouth
Church, the two following papers on Pris
on Reform were read : Of the two regular
papers the first was a report by Rcv.J. L.
Milligan, of Aileghan, Penn., delegate
from Pensylvania to the International
Prison Congress held in London in 1S72.
He said : President Cleveland, as well as
tire National Prison Association, commis
sioned me to tire third 1 nternational Pris
on Congress, held at the close of last year
in Rome, where it met on the invitation
of the King of Italy. Its sessions were
opened and held in the Palace of Fine Arts.
M. Depretis was made President, and
spoke the welcome of Italy. The number of
delegates from Europe, Asia, England and
America was large and made up of expert
cnced men. The session continued eight
days. Tiie display of prison products of
every conceivable manufacture occupied
nine large halls in the Palace of fine Arts.
Models of twenty-eight cells from various
countries, made after actual dimensions
and style of occupancy, were built in the
grounds of the Palace. The questions
treated and conclusions reached, pertained
to criminal jurisprudence, prison discipline
and preventative measures. Tire proceed
ings will make two large volumes and can
be secured through our Secretary of State.
These only can give a fair idea of the
breadth and importance of this Congress.
The next one will convene in St. Peters
The second paper by Gen. Brinkerhofi',
ot Ohio. Itembodied such principles of
prison reform as arc recognized as axioms
by all leading penologists. The dominant
idea in the creation of prisons should be
the protection of society by the reforma
tion or permanent detention of prisoners.
Vengance is not tanable under the Chris
tian dispensation and experience has
shown that it is not effective in the refor
mation of prisoners. One of the require
ments is tire intermediate sentences under
which criminals are sent to prison as moral
hospitals from which they are not to be
discharged until they are cured. A gener
at discussion followed, in which a number
of delegates spoke briefly

Trains and Raid Randies.
A Matamoras special says: The up train
on the Matamoras A: Monterey Railroad
was attacked by revolutionists at Capote
station a few days since. Over fifty pas
sengers were on the train, among them
delegates to the Congressional College
from Revnosa, Mier, Cnmargo, Guerro
and other up-river towns; several army
officers and their ladies. When it reached
Capote, according to a telegram from the
customs guard to the Collector of Cus
toms, it was attacked by Innocenr.io Tano
and Adolfo Gonzales, at the head of fifty
revolutionists or bandits, and the passen
gers were robbed of all their arms, but it is
not stated whether any of them were hurt.
Col. Projedis Covassas, witli a force of
cavalry arrived at the station within an
hour after the train had passed, hut found
that Tapias' men had also left. It is
thought that he is pressing them closely,
though no account of the fight lias been
obtained. The Revolutionists are raiding
all the ranches. The revolution appears
to be spreading in the State of Neuvoleon.
Advices from Yrea Tamauiipas state
that there have been revolutionary riots
there in which three men were killed and
Lieutenant-Colonel Antonio Echuretta,
Commissioner of the State Government,
was wounded. Prominent Ctiellerists
have all ben driven from the place and

the whole country in that section is in
arms and that recruits are going there
from the American side of the river.

A Denver dispatch says: There lias
been no rain in Colorado during the past
three months, and in consequence the riv
ers are drying up and crops, ranchmen and
stock, as well as families, are suffering
greatly for water. What little water re
mains in the Platte River is taken out by
the Highline Ditch Company, above Den
ver, causing the ranchmen lower down
great drought. The farmers held a meet
ing here Saturday, protesting against the
Gen- action of the ditch company, and petition
ing the Governor for relief,
evening the State officials issued an order
to the State Engineer directing him to
shut off the supply of water above the city
ior irrigating purposes until the domestic
wants of the farmers lower down are satis
fied. It has been raining in the mountains
as well as east and south and the opinion
is that the drought is at an end.
