'THE BAD BOYS' REPUBLIC.
William R. George's System of Transforming Law
less Street Waifs Into Good Citizens.
" , By D. L. Pierson.,
The George Junior Bepublic a1
Freeville, N. Y., is, perhaps, the most
remarkable community ever devised.
this extraordinary reformatory is lit
erally a nation in miniature, with its
own parliament and laws; its own
coinage, police, prisons, shops, farms,
newspapers, hotels, banks, etc. The
founder of this Republic is Mr. Will
iam R. George. Some years ago he
became much interested in problems
concerning juvenile law-breakers and
"incorrigibles" in New York City,
and made up his mind to try the ex
periment of taking them away from
their evil surroundings in the city, and
giving them a chance to reform in
the country. At first the experiment
was not wholly a success. but gradu
ally the scheme of a self-governing
Republic was perfected, and with the
very best of results. July 10th, 1895,
is counted as "Independence Day,"
and is celebrated each year.
The smallest Republic in the world
is likewise the most extraordinary
and probably the best governed. It is
diminutive in territory, in the number
of its inhabitants, and in the age and
size of its citizens. And yet there
are few of the best characteristics of
the largest democracies which have
not their counterpart in the smallest.
The interest taken in the enterprise
is shown from the fact that on some
days during the summer they have
over 200 visitors.
The George Junior Republic, as it
is called, is located at Freeville, in
Tompkins County, New York. Its
citizens are boys and girls, gathered
largely from the slums of great cities.
Most of them have "histories" more
interesting than creditable. They
have been horse thieves, p.ckpockets,
runaways, and ou the whole, very
promising candidates for jails, peni
tentiaries, "dives" and the gallows.
At the Republic, however, they are
soon transformed into independent,
thrifty, law-making, law-abiding citi
The territory of the Republic con
sists of about 100 acres of farm land
not far from Ithica. There are only
ten plain wooden buildings in the
"metropolis." These comprise two
cottages, one for boys and one for
girls; the "Republic" building, con

rants, hotel and "garroot" lodging

store; the Government building, in
cluding court-house, jail, Capitol and
postoffice; a girls' jail; a hospital; a
barn; a laundry and bath-house; a
carpenter and machine shop. Money
for a chapel has also recently been
given. The land is good farming, and
fine crops of hay, grain and vegetables
are raised every year. Horses, cows,
pigs, etc., are also kept to advantage.
This little Republic is a government
of the children for the children and
by the children. The citizens are
boys and girls from twelve to eighteen
of age. Those under twelve are
minors, and must have guardians ap
pointed by the State from the older
citizens. Many of these guardians
have shown themselves to be wise,
tactful and loving caretakers of the
little ones intrusted to their charge.
When the minors cannot fully support
themselves their guardians must look
out for them, so that the State is not
encumbered with their support. The
total numberof inhabitants of the Re
public is now eighty-six.
Formerly, the Government was
modeled after that of the United
States, with President (st a salary of
fifty cents a week), a Cabinet, Senate,
House of Representatives and Su
preme Court. Judges, police officers,
and other officials must pass a Civil
Service examination, and in conse
quence the most thumbed books in the

It is the ambition of every boy to at

striped trousers. Most of them in
deed would rather be "cop" than Presi
dent. In 1896 a force of fourteen
policemen was necessary to preserve
order, but now the State is encum
bered with the support of only two.

his breath. The penalty is a fine of

Gambling of any sort receives no
quarter from the oflicials. The first
boy caught "shooting craps" was no
less a personage than a member of the
Senate of the Republic; and even
though he pleaded gaily, the judge
fined him twenty-five dollars. He re

seat in the Senate but also his rights
of citizenship. and he was obliged to
don the ignominious striped suit of a
convict and break stone at five cents
an hour. One night Mr. George him
self was [passing his prison cell and
spoke to the boy, advising him to pay
up and get out of prison. "No, I
won't do it," the boy answered; and
then, with the steady wit of the street
urchin, he added: "I guess I'll take
the small-pox to-night and break out."
Some days later, however, as he was
breaking stone, he suddenly threw
down his hammer, threw up his bands
in a tragio manner, and exclaimed; "I

laws against swearing, gambling,
smoking and other vices, with their
heavy penalties attached, are of the

boys' own making, and are enforced
by the boys with a rigor which shows
a strong publio sentiment against the
evils, we have some ideaof the success
which has attended this most interest
ing effort at self-government.
The jail is no playhouse, but has
small cells with bars and high win
dows, the hardest of beds, and unmis
takable prison fare. Upstairs is the
court-room, containing, among other
things, a trap-door for the entrance of
the prisoner, an imposing high desk
for the judge, and a jurors' bench.
There is also a small space railed off
for the witness stand, and rows of
seats for interested listeners. The
sessions of the oourt are most orderly
and impressive. The pros and cons
are carefully weighed; evidence is
called for in the proper order, and
most heart-stirring appeals are made
to the jury. Only one case of bribery
has ever been discovered, and on that
occasion the guilty oicial was im.
mediately deposed, and suffered dis
grace as well as legal penalties.

their time making laws and breaking

motto is strictly adhered to, exoep
in case of sickness. Every citizen i+
supposed to work and earn enougl
money to pay for his board ani
clothes. There are two adult heal
farmers, as well as a carpenter and a
housekeeper, who superintend the
work; but the boys themselves take
contracts for running the hotels,
making roads, laying drains, farming,
building, etc. These contractors hire
laborers at wages ranging from fifty
cents to $1.50 per day, according to
the skill of the workman. The girls
are employed at honuehold duties,
and the minors usually help their
guardians. Wages are paid once a
week, and no favors are shown to
those workmen or Government offi
cials who recklessly spend their earn
ings the first few days of the week.
A coarse diet and a hard bed are the

where portions were served like prison
rations. But some boys had but lit
tle self-respect, and preferred to idle
away their time and be dependent up
on the charity of the Republic. Hav
ing no income or property they were
practically tax free, and it was not
long before the industrious taxpayers
began to realize the expense which
idlers entailed on the State. Finally
a Senator, whose own parents at home
were wholly dependent upon city
charity, submitted a bill to the Legis
lature to the effect that those "who
would not work should not eat." The
poor but dishonest were thus deprived
of support. At the same time, those
who through illness are unable to
work are provided with free meal
tickets.-The Wide World Magazine.
Bicycles For Armny Use.
A bicycle has been invented that is
a model for military usefulness. In
addition to enabling the soldier
wheelman to cover ground quickly it
affords a temporary protection for two
men in case the skirmishing party is
surprised, and also a refuge for them
in the night and during bad weather.
In front of the handle bars is fitted a
hardened plate of nickel-steel, which
serves not only as a means of defense
when the bicycle is thrown to the
ground, but a platform for carrying
equipments and rations while on the
march. A similar attachment is
erected back of the saddle. On these
platforms outfits for two men can be
transported during military opera
tions; where roads are too bad for
wheeling the soldier will find it much
easier to push seventy-five or a hun
dred pounds of baggage on a wheel
than to carry it on his back. During
an attack these shields furnish con
siderable protection from rifle fire at
a fair range. When the bicycle in
fantry comes to a halt for the night an
ordinary tent may be rigged over the
machine, which is kept rigid by guy
ropes; this will give shelter for two
men. The rifles are carried under
the top bar of the diamond frame.
An Ambitious Essay on Lions.
It is the custom of the teachers in
the public sehools of Washington to
take the pupils of the younger grades
to the National Zoological Park at least
once every term for the double pur
pose of giving them a day of recreation
and a lesson in natural history. Upon
their return the children are required
to give the result of their observations
in writing, Here is a sample from a
bright-minded eleven-year-old whose
father ocupies a high official position:
"Lions always walk except when
they eat and they growl. Their roar
is terrifying to men and other beasts
when herd in the forest but when they
are in cages it sounds like they was
sorry about something. Their tails
are not so long as the monkeys accord
ing to their size but keep swishing all
the time and the seals can make just
as loud a noise and have more fun in
the water. They are cats no matter
what you think and their size has noth
ing to do with it and they think with
out talking. Once a donkey stole a
lion's skin and went around bragging
about it but the other donkeys got on
to him and killed him because he
talked so much. That showed he was
a donkey. Keep still when you are
Snake Imprisoned In a Tree,
The Rev. S. S. Crain, in the city
from Emberson, reported a peculiar
incident. He had W. M. Fears, liv
ing on the Jesse Caviness place, cut
ting posts for him a few days ago.
At the end of one of the pieces of post
timbers was a hollow fork. When
the cut was split open a little black
snake about two feet long was found
in the hollow. It was alive and
writhed and squirmed, but could not
escape. It was discovered that an
inch and a half of the tail projected
through the wood on the outside of
the bark. The fork of the tree had
completely grown around it. The
supposition is that the snake crawled
into the hollow to hibernate, that its
tail got caught in a crack of the fork
and that it grew over him while he re
mained in the torpid state. The
wood had so thoroughly grown around
the snake's body that when the chip
was split open in which it was en
cased the snake stuck to one side of
the ship, The snake must have been

A JAPANESE NOULBI
calks of the Amalglrastloa o Three
Tacoma (Wash.) Special New York
Times: Some of the leaders of reli
gious thought in Japan are endeavor
ing to choose between Buddhism,
Shintoism and Christianity as the fu
ture religion of the empire. Others
would amalgamate the best features of
the several religions. One of these is
Count Okuma, one of the heads of the
Japanese government. In an inter
view reported in a Japanese newspaper
he says: "The fundamental idea of
Confucianism is benevolence, that of
Buddhism is compassion or mercy and
that of Christianity love. These feel
ings form the basis of all religion.
The founders of the different religions
knew their own people and their own
part of the world only, and hence could
not devise any system of teaching that
should suit all countries alike, but
they did an immense deal in the way
of drawing attention to the impor
tance of certain principles. For the
multiplication of sects their disciples
are responsible. Their interpretation
of the meaning of the words said to
be used by the founders differed wide
ly, and each variation was perpetuated
by special forms and ceremonies. What
is most desirable now is to get rid of
the superstructure and lay bare the
foundation. Benevolence, compassion
and love! Cannot Buddhists, Chris
tians and Confucianists come together
on these principles and work in ha:
mony? This union may not be wit
nessed in my time, but it will come
some day." Some of the Christian
churches in Japan are taking steps to
open a new divinity school to take the
place of the Doshisha Divinity hall,
which has been closed owing to a dis
agreement with the American Mis
sionary board in New York, which sup
ported it. Hitherto the American
Board of Foreign Missions and the
Japanese churches have been acting
separately, but since the object is the
same, efforts will be made to unite the
two classes of workers.
BARB WIRE TELEPHONE LINE.
weo Indiana Towne, iftteesn wses
Apart, suceessfully Conaneted.
An Anderson, Ind., correspondent
writes: One of the most novel tele
phone systems in the world is the
'barbwire" line, which connects the
towns of Anderson, Pendleton and In
galls. It is fifteen miles in length. Its
inventor, builder and sole owner, Cas
;ius Alley of Pendleton, Ind., now has
fix subscribers at $50 a year each.
The time is not far distant when there
will be ten-fold this number. One
clothing company at Anderson with
branch stores at Pendleton, and the
Wagner Glass Works, with offices at
Anderson and factory at Ingalls, are
using this barb-wire system in their
business affairs exclusively. They use
the line frequently. They can convert
it into a private line by plugs so ar
ranged that when one party is using
the line he can cut out all others except
in Mr. Alley's residence, which is used
3s a central station. It is no exag
geration to say that this barb-wire
telephone system is quite as satisfac
tory as the copper circuit of the Bell.
Ordinary phones are used with no
special strength of battery and there
is very little trouble with the lines.
in constructing the line Mr. Alley
used the top strand of the barb-wire
fence of the Big Four railway, mak
ing the connections with the offices
of his subscribers with ordinary tele
phone wire. In some instances where
the posts had rotted it was necessary
to paint the wire and posts with rub
ber paint to insulate the wire. The
whole line of fifteen miles was built
at a cost of about $100, and the outfit
for each house, consisting of receiver,
transmitter, battery, call, etc., costs
not over $10. The line has been in
operation since December 22, and has
not been out of order except for a few
hours when a fast train on the rail
way track struck a cow, threw her
body against the fence and broke the
Winter Oeeae Baths.
The fad of taking a plunge in the
waters of the ocean and bay during
the winter has, it seems, taken a firm
hold on some of the residents in the
suburban sections of Brooklyn, espe
cially those along the shores of
Gravesend Bay, at Bath Beach and
Bensonhurst. These two hamlets now
boast of three residents who never fall
to take a cool dip in the bay every day
in the year. All those who would doubt
it can go down to Bensonhurst and
make inquiries for John Richmond, a
good natured Englishman, who owns a
little place on Bath avenue,near Thir
ty-fifth street, where he conducts a
florist's business. His wife prides her
self on being the only woman in the
city who takes the icy plunge. It has
been said that a mysterious woman did
make her appearance a shabort time ago
at Bath Beach, and, after promenading
the beach for a time, she plunged into
the water. The woman, however, was
apparently satisfied with that one dip
and has not been seen along the shore
since, while Mrs. Richmond is there
