CHICAGO, Sept. 18. Today's ses
sion of the National Prison Congress
was held at tne cnicago university
and the principal feature was an ad
dress by Attorney General Bonaparte
on "Funisnment ana raraon. Bona
parte spoke of the value of discipline
as having "miraculous power to radi
cally change human nature," and the
necessity of insuring obedience to
sovereign will by the pnlshment of
disobedience. The efficacy of any
form of punishment, however, he
said, must be judged by its results
to the community in the diminution
of crime. Its effects on lawbreakers
themselves, while worthy, are not,
he said, of vastly less moment. Bona
parte said he had seen no reason to
repent of his suggestion, made in a
magazine article some years ago, that
an attempt to commit capital crime
ought, to be made itself capital, and
further the commission of a major
crime should render the offender
liable at the discretion of the court
to the-death penalty. .

number. of cases to date, 32; deaths,
19; suspects under observation, 19.

work done by Dr. Wherey showed
that practically all of the infected
rats have come from the Italian quar
ter in the North Beach district. Su

the board. He objected to a proposal
by Dr. Huntington to address a cir
cular letter to every wholesaler,
warehouse man, liveryman and res-
tauranteur in the city relative to the
necessity of killing rats. Payot
thought the purpose could - be best
served by addressing a letter to the
press. The board Instructed the
health officer to append such notice
to an advertisement he is about to
insert offering the board's ten-cent
bounty on rats.

dations can be afforded by various

tients soon to be moved from the
