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.

Higgins Is a Candidate; His Friends
AVill Control, Says liarnes.
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
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."

An ideal china closet is built between
the dining room and kitchen, so that It

should have a broad cleat across and

such as are usually stored thereon,
from falling over upon the dishes.

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.
