The Law Has the Man. What of
His Family?
What becomes of the children of con
victs? Every day of the year some man
is sentenced to prison, leaving behind
htm boys or girls or both who are at
tbe mercy of the people of tbe com
munity for clothing and food, shelter
and education. The judge who pro-
neunces sentence on the erring father
and husband cannot concern himself
about the mother and children who are
thus left behind to shift for themselves.
Justice must grind out her grist, the
father must take his medicine for bis
sinful ways. It is the business and
common duty of the judge to see to it
that tbe offender is sent to prison for
the crime committed. It is, in fact, no
one's business in particular what be
comes of tbe wife and children of the
convict, what they do for a living while
the father is in jail. This condition of
affairs, so very common everywhere in
America, has puzzled the Christian peo
ple for a long time.
Hundreds of convicts with whom the
workers of the Samaritan Christian
Army have talked have begged them
to do something for their children, to
keep them if possible out of the sinful
ways of the street and city, to take
them away somewhere, that they might
be brought up among wholesome sur
roundings and a healthy environment, j
The outcome of the appeal has been
the establishment of homes for these
innocent victims of another's wrong
doing, and at tbe present time the
Samaritan Christian Army has twenty
one homes and schools for convict s
Tbe organization at tne present is
working along the line of having the
various States make some provision
whereby tbe wife and children of a con
vict will be taken care of. Tbe plan is
rapidly gaining ground and a growing
sentimert in favor of such legislation
is being felt over the country.

The time is not yet ripe for a change
in the policy toward Mexico, was tbe
unanimous decision of the President's
Cabinet. A demand that those respon
sible for the murder of Ciemente Vergara
at Nuevo Laredo be punished, was made
by Secretary Bryan upon Gen. Huerta
at Mexico City. The commission to
examine the body of William S. Benton,
executed by rebels, may leave for Chi
huahua. Ranger Capt. J. J. Sanders, in a re
port to Gov. Colquitt, said that Ciemente
Vergara, the American ranchman, was
shot while being transferred from Hidal
go, Mex., to the Federal headquarters
at Piedras Negras. Gov. Colquitt wired
Secretary Bryan for information regard
ing whom he should ask to surrender the
men who stole Vergara 's horses.
