For some time Judge Haymond has gi
had the cases under his consideration r
and they have caused him much con- ta

out of their teens, but apparently har- pi
dcned criminals by their own confes- j fr
sions. Every one had been in the ( th
Reform school before and some of
them more than once, only to be pa- r?
roled to perpetrate even greater tii
crimes. The situation was extremely al
pathetic and no one felt it more keeii- st
ly than the judge himself in cou ' to- cr
day. Knowing that as far as the *f .r tl
was concerned he could do littel lor ol
the boys, because the state code fixes s?
the penalty. Judge Haymond soiight
to alleviate matters by having Uncle
Sam take the-boys and endeavor to gi
make men out of them. Both Judge ni
Haymond and Prosecuting Attorney pi
