JAPAN WITHDRAWS SUBSIDY
TO CHECK POACHING SEALS
San Francisco Aug 17According
to a statement Issued from the office
of Japanese Consul General Nagal yes
terday the Japanese government was
withdrawn tho subsidy heretofore ex
tended to vessels engaged in hunt
Ing seals and sea otters In order to
check the operations of seal poachers
among the islands of the Alaskan
coast The statement says In part
It may not bo generally known In
this country that the Japanese govern
ment has tor many years subsidized
vessels engaged In deepocean fishing
the purpose being to encourage the de
velopment of the Industry
From time to time certain adven
turous Japanese taking advantage of
this liberal provision of the law have
extended their operations beyond the
limits originally contemplated hy the
government until fishing boats had
been put on the high sens bordering
Alaska As Is already known to tho
American people some of these fisher
men either through ignorance or with
criminal intent have occasionally com
mitted acts leading to International
controversy and much Illfooling
It Is niw learned that the Japan
ese government has revised its fishing
laws in such a way as to cut out all
aid from the national treasury to ves
sels engaged in hunting seals and sea
otters The new Imperial ordinance
went Into operation July 1 1909 It
Is believed the withdrawal of the sub
sidy will discourage Japanese seal
fishing as It cannot be carried on with
out government aid

ON PRISON REfORM
Seattle Aug 16Thc debate in the

today on the Indiana plan for pre
venting the propagation of criminals
and Idiots developed an almost unani
mous sentiment In favor of tho plan
and was according to President J T
Gllmour of Toronto Canada the moat
profitable discussion tho association
has held In years
The feature of tonlghto session was
the report of the committee on pre
vention and probation presented by
Judge Ben Llndsey of the Denver Ju
venile court who said in part
Our criminal laws as it came down I
to us through feudalism tanted with
Its extreme respect for property that
only equaled Its corresponding disre
spect for human life and feeling was
an instrumentality of government far
from perfect even for the purposes for
which It was Intended Admitting 1
that it was necessary and justifiable I
as a system In that period of social
development as we must yet we
must equally admit that It must do
more harm than good as ions as It
rests alone on force violence yen
geance and punishment
The time may come however far
in the future it may be or ho v un
prepared wo may be for It now when
tho state will come to ueal with a
criminal much as we now do with the
insane
But this treatment of the criminal
will be as much unlike the extreme
methods In vogue of stripes Iron cells
and other reminders of degradation a
