TaE LAKE COUNTY TIMES tfridav, August 24, 1906. The T True Purpose of Imprisoning Criminals By EU-ENE SMITH. Fimoui Criroinoloist T is not easy to see how punishment cvrr came to be regarded as an EXPIATION" for crime. The expiatory nature of suffering depends on its VOLUNTARINESS. Yet this ab- surb idea is the only ground on which a dangerous criminal 13 now discharged after a CERTAIN TERX of imprisonment. Public protection is the only motive which justifies the state de priving a criminal of his liberty, revenge being wholly alien to its majesty. Put imprisonment that is not reformatory insures protec tion (tXLY WHILE IT LASTS. Therefore we can protect our selves from tho criminal only by life imprisonment or by reformation, and reformation seems to bo more humane, besides being less ex pensive. And reformation presupposes THE INDETERMINATE SENTENCE. The criminal must be treated UNTIL tlURED. The question of hh guilt is wholly immaterial, and attempts to make the punishment fit the crime are an absurdity. Only OMNIS CIENCE can measure guilt. Under the oh! criminal system the state figured as nn avenging fury pursuing the criminal. UNDER THE NEW IT 13 A BENEFICENT POWER STRIVING TO AID HIM, AND NO CRUELER WRONG CAN DE DONE TO HIM THAN TO SET HIM FREE WHEN HE IS INCAPABLE OF SELF CONTROL.

New York, A us. 24. Wia. Barnes, Jr., chairman of the executive commit- j tee of the Republican state commit- j toe, after a conference with Governor j j Iliggir.s, came to New York and an- nounced that the governor was a caa j Uidate for renomination. I "Governor Higgins," said Barnes, "is a candidate for renomination. He nev er chased after a nomination, and he is not chasing after a renomination. ITe is a candidate for renomination. but lie does not demand the honor from, the state convention. "Friends of Governor Higgins will control the state convention and Dom inate him." New York, Art?. 21. PMrlet Attor ney William Ira vers Jerome- a tram talked of the political situation in this state. He said he believed the time was now ripe for the many leaders of Tammany Hall to state their positions. He also declared that Hearst as a man lid not figure in the coming campaign. "If Mr. Hearst was nominated bv the Democratic convention would you upport himV" Jerome was asked. You will never face this: situation," he replied. "Let's discuss something practical. The Democratic party has had to swallow some bitter draughts in the past, but it will never stand for that medicine."' Says Hearst Doesn't Count. "You saw what Mr. Hearst said about you';' Jerome was asked. "Yes, I saw that." answered the district at torney. "There is no question of Hearst in this matter in the person Hearst. The question is of the group about Hearst. Hearst the man is a man of no importance, and no ideas. He is like Murphy. The question about Hearst resolves itself into the persons who are about him, whose ideas, work ing on the addled bt-nin of Czolgosz, armed his hand to slay a president, and working along those linos is re flected in the conduct of the great lead er of the Independence League, Bor ough President Bird Color, who went along the line of the B. K. T. inciting riot. Nevt He Grows "Sarkast Ileal." "Murphy, however, should not be so severely criticised. This is a Christian world and a Christian example should be praised. This is a campaign of the Ten Commandments. I am run ning on the Ten Commandments' plat form, Hearst is, Higgins is going to, and Odell is the greatest exponent of us all. There is no one in public life, on the platform or in the platform, who docs not have regard for the Ten Commandments. Mr. Hearst cannot claim to be the prophet wy came down from the mount, like the Ten Commandments. He has habitually been more like Moses, who on a cer tain occasion, when irritated, broke them nil at once. He Defines "Availability." "The Democratic convention in. the ory' should voice the will of the par ty, and there is to be a convention soon. I am for seating all delegates, waiving every technicality. Peat every man is my idea. If the Democratic party has not got vitality enough to fight out its own battles, then what's the use? I am against a convention when three of four littie ducks go into a back room and talk of the 'availa bility' of a man. 'Availability' always means how much money can he raise for the campaign fund. No votes follow such a candidate." Bryan Challenged to Debate. Cincinnati, Aug. 24. An invitation to William J.

How to Make One Thnt Saves CO Ier Cent of Breakage, An ideal china closet is built between the dining room and kitchen, so that It can be entered unobserved when guests are at the table, says the Boston Trav eler. The shelves are not more than fourteen Inches wide and about nine teen Inches apart. If wider than this the tendency is to pile too many dishes upon them, and they are apt to give way. Corrugated rubber, such as Is tised beside kitchen sinks, is an excellent covering for the shelves and decreases the breakage of china by $0 per cent A serviceable device for use when plates are stood on ends is to use a rope instead of a cleat to bold them and to fasten it at the corners and in the center by double headed tacks driven down tightly into the shelves. This be ing 6lightly yielding the plates are less apt to fall over from a sudden jar or siignt diow. Heavy pieces, such, as platters and vegetable dishes, should be placed on the lowest of the broad shelves, the greatest weight being brought as far as possible over the cleats. Hooks on which cups are hung should not bo screwed on the edge of the second shelf, but well underneath it They 6hould be tested from time to time, lest by the settling of the house and of the shelves they become loose. The second shelf should be about three Inches narrower than the one be neath it to admit of large dishes being lifted out safely. The upper shelves, unless used for large dishes, may be flush with the second. The top shelf should have a broad cleat across and around It. This is for the purpose of keeping the various odds and ends, such as are usually stored thereon, from falling over upon the dishes.

Fomentations should always be as hot as can comfortably be borne, and to Insure effect 6hould ba repeated ev ery half hour, says the Pittsburg Press. They are of various kinds, but the most simple and often the most useful that can be employed Is warm water. For a hot water fomentation a great deal of the trouble of wringing out the flan nel can be saved If there happens to be a steamer in the house. Into which it should be put over boiling water after being folded to the required size. An other plan is to damp the flannel with hot water and sprinkle a little turpen tine on the side of the poultice to be applied. Cover the flannel used to fo ment, which should be folded four times thick with wool and oil silk. An other kind of fomentation is composed of dried poppy heads, say four ounces. Break them in pieces, empty out the seeds, put them into four pints of wa ter, boil for fifteen minutes, then strain, and keep the water for use. Nothing Is Impossible to Industry.
