TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10. 18B9.
OUR COUNTRY : First. Last and Forever.
Chicago can console itself with the
Prohibitionists. Their imtloiml con
vention is to be held in the AViuuy
City next year.
TlIK Keystone Sunday school worli
era outnumber those of every other
state. They are n mighty host in
nearly 10,000 sohools, with 100,000
teachers and ollieers, and 1,300,000
members. At the recent state cou
ventiou, in Reading, the reports from
every county showed large gains dur
ing the year in every movement,
arousing great enthusiasm and lead
ing to enlarged plans for the future.
Some states, like Illinois, still lead in
certain departments, but in these the
splendid gains of Pennsylvania work
ers are most significant. Better still,
nothing was done for mere rivalry,
but to increase the Sunday school
population all over the state from 23
per cent., the average, to 00 per cent.,
as it is in several counties.
Views of Two Judges.
Two Pennsylvania judges have re
cently made comments in passing
sentence on prisoners, that are at
tracting considerable attention
throughout the state. Judge Robert
S Frazer, of Allegheny, had before
him a culprit who had been convicted
of whipping his wife in the approved
manner supposed to prevail in the
olden time. He did not knock her
down, or pound her, or kick her, but.
just whipped her thoroughly with a
switch. The wife-ivhipper was shown
to be au honest, sober, industrious
and skillful mechanic, who provided
ubundantly for his family. His wife
had become infatuated with a drum
mer, with whom she maintained a
correspondence. A compromising
letter from the drummer accidentally
fell into the hands of the outraged
and betrayed husband, and he gave
tiie faithless wife the whipping for
which he was arrested. Judge Frazer,
in imposing a nominal sentence, ex
pressed the opinion that the husband
was Just about as nearly justiiied as a
man possibly could be under such
circumstances, and left the impres
sion that in his court offenders of
that class would not be dealt with
The other case occurred in Berks
county, before Judge Ermentrout
Three small boys had been convicted
of theft and when brought before
him for sentence the Judge said that
the parents of these children were the
real culprits and deserved the punish
ment, and he refused to send these
neglected boys to jail. If their par
ents had given them proper training
they would not have been brought
Into court. Doubtless there is much
truth in what Judge Ermentrout
fcaid, but it is also true that there are
many instances where the parents are
not responsible for the wrong-doing
of their children, as almost every ob
serving person knows from personal
knowledge and cbservation. Judge
Ermentrout's theory may be oorreot
in a L'reat many cases, but by no
means in all. At the same time, when
ever and wherever It is possible, with
out detriment to the public welfare
or safety, children should not be sen
tenced to imprisonment. They should
be saved from entering upon the
battle of life with the awful stain of
convict upon them. It is better for a
Judge to err on the side of mercy in
