THURSDAY. JULY 3. 1907 in of THE HERALD'S BIRTHDA Y. Fifteen years ago the first edition of The Herald was issued Brownsville, and the paper has en joyed an uninterrupted run iprosperity since it was launched on the journalistic seas. Quick to rec ognize the merits of The Herald as a newspaper, and its determina tion to be at all times for Browns ville and its people, it has never lacked friends who have ever been Teadv to stand bv the paper in its fight for everything that was good During the fifteen years, The .Herald has never changed hands JaaS has been under its present 'management since it was first pub Iished. Difficulties have been en countered, strong opposition has been overcome, but it has only served to strengthen the position held by The Herald on the low- er Rio Grande. The management has ever been ready to sound the upraises of our people and the beau tiful land which we call home, and throueh its persistent work has made the Brownsville country fav orably known in every corner of t fiis BTeat countrv of ours'. The enterprise of The Herald in se curing reliable data on subjects of vital interest to the people of the Brownsville.couutry and the mul titude of. special articles written for tiit ntfrnnse of developing the -1 country, has made The Herald one of the most widely quoted pa ners in the state. Notwithstanding the amount of time acd space de moted to the Brownsville country, The Herald has never neglected ?the interests of its home city, and --as a result is strongly entrenched .in the hearts of the people. A lit ;.tle more than three years ago, the -demand for a weekly paper in the surrounding country and in other rstates became so well defined that a weekly edition of The Herald was begun, and it is a matter of record that few papers have as quickly gone to the front rank as The. Weekly Herald. The clientage of The Herald is scat tered over 29 states and territories "besides Canada, Mexico and Cuba. It is the intention of the manage ment to keep The Herald in the very front rank, and at the present time great improvements are con templated, which will make its position even stronger as the paper si the Brownsville country. DANGER FROM FLOODS. At this season of the year.it often happens that the Rio Grande becomes a swollen stream. The immense volume of water which comes down at these times has .foi;d outlet through the Arroyos ColoiAdo.a Gloria, Panola and Carricitos. When the Rio Grande as in flood the Arroyo Colorado carries off an immense volume of water to the sea, and the Panola, Carricitos and La Gloria also take a large amount of water cairying it around the city of Brownsville and saving the city from the dang ers of a flood. Since the great irri gatin enterprises have been inug arated in the Rio Grande Valley, b.e engineers have found it neces sary to dam the ends f the arroyos mentioned, and it is this fact that causes The Herald to point out the danger which threatens Brownsville. With no outlet for the flood water above the city, it is reasonable to suppose that the levees around the City of Browns ville are inadequate for the purpos es intended. It would be a wise course for the proper authorities to pursue if they were to investigate the conditions we have named with a view to protecting Brownsville from floods. . Criminal Reform. If someone should get up and say: '.'Your method of punishing criminals is all wrong. Your judges or juries guess at how much punishment will offset the weight of the misdeed. Then you send the poor wretches to a prison where they are given every en couragement to become worse than they were before. Finally, you let them out and your civilization turns its tack upon them because they are jail birds." It someone said this to us, you know we would have to take it It is true. With all the enhghtmcnt we boast, we are slill in a hopeless muddle when it comes to crime its punishment, how to restrain it what to do about it, and how to make good citizens out of those who under our system have for feited their right to personal liber ty- New York now proposes to try an experiment in citizen-maKing, The measure that is to begin it is called the Davis bill, which has passed the legislature and has been signed by Governor Hughes This "bill practically abandons the theory of disciplinary punish ment in prison for rigidly fixed terras and proposes to make pun ishment dependent upoa the sub sequent conduct of the offender himself. It is a marvelous forward step in the treatment. This bill provides for the crea tion of a commission to extend the jurisdiction of probation officers and to enforce the probation sys tem in all parts of the state. Other pending bills continue the movement, until it is finally pro posed to extend the present parole system until it includes practically every offence upon the criminal schedule except first degree raur der. It will say to every criminal, 'Here is your chance to become a good citizen.') Such enactments are necessarily too sweeping to be put into gene ral operation in a moment. There is too much of the dead timber of the law code to cut away. But we cannot help realizing that our present system of so many ears for one crime, so many years tor another" crime, minimun and maximum sentences between which the jury is left to guess; our sys tem of making a man worse by his punishment instead of better we must realize that all this in its very nature absurd, outrageous and barbarous. If, out of-this germ of reform that is promised in New York, there should eventually emerge a great system of criminal reform and criminal reclamation, it will have been one of the most tremen dous advances in the annals of law, and our day will be recorded as an era of real progress towards the ideal of civilized government.
