TlilrklrM Sn Crlnein Ciimns at tbe Ke.iilh Arr SrhooU of Iii-rY-llr From Which CrlmlimU Are (Urntlfialci'd. Cincinnati, O, Oct. l.'l.Dr. W. P Thlrkleld, corresponding secretary of the Methodist Frecdmcn's Aid andi Southern Educational society, Monday, In delivering the opening address ot the Evangelical alliance, charged that the crimes of negroes in the south are due to the chain-gang prison system. He salel in part: "Far be It from me to utter one word' In extenuation of the unspeakable crime of which some black men are guilty. Let us keep In mind, however, that only about 20 per cent, of the black men who are lynched have even been charged with the unspeakable crime against the sacredness of wom anhood, "Ixit the black men bring In every Influence to bear to make such crimes. Impossible. Let then; be prompt ex ecution or the law against thin and ale crimes of all men. "Lynch law, however, Is anarchy. It brings In the reign of barbarism. It brntall.e.'s members) of the mobs; it un dermines government; it does not utor crime. "In estimating criminality among the blael; people we; should keep In mind that slme Appomattox nearly every southern sin: has maintained a sehool of crime, an organized Institution for the training of criminals. This 1 charge against the convict-lease sys tem of the south. Thin system, with Its thousands of victims, has been the cause; or much or the outbreaking ol crime among the black people through its brutalizing and dehumanizing In llncnee mi thousands of negroes. "Fnder tills systi'tn both prison tin piisoners are lanneel out under the ontrol of private ( orporatloiiK--s,o!d ti. the; highest bldeler. "To the lessi'e.s the body and soul 'if'eotivlit.s arc assigned. "The motive ol both state and les' tees Is not morals, but money; no! reformation, but exploitation of erlm Inals for gain. It Is crime turned lntc a source of revenue; the brawn am. blood ol criminals bartered for gain. "Criminals are generally seattereel in branch prisons -cpiartiued In nidi stockades without proper sanitation food or clothing The average life of these eonvlds is Icbh than ten yeaia Old and young are promiscuously "lialned and herded together. Even men dinl women are In sumo camps, not tcpnratcd. "Hardened criminals and the boy fonvii'leel of his first crime!; the com paratively good and the inosl depraved, villi and abandoned are chained to gether. One warden of u stale peniten tiary protests In his report that 'unde! the present law and custom the peni tentiary Is the school of crime, Instead of being a reformatory Institution.' Of TiO boys under 18, nine-tenths of thenu leave prison much wo ire than when they came .b;;. "There is in these convict camps no organized reformatory effort. He-form does not enter Into the system. It Is a matter of barter and sale of con vict men and women to the hlghe'st bidder. The aim of the state Is not the moral reformation of her criminal classes, but the care of ihein without cost and even the reduction of taxes, through the sale of crlmlualH, "In a period of two years over 1,100 of those convct.s escaped from southern prisons. Think or 1.100 thieves, mur derers, thugs, at large, lawless men roaming about in deliance of all law and order. Think of a system that has1 no reformatory element; no system to cure men of crime, but that educates young criminals In crime, and that by Its barbarity bruttallzes and de humanizes men, and sends out those that do not die under the horrors ol the system to debauch and degrade so ciety. From such criminals what won der If there come forth hundred:! oi moral monsters? "The south should reform its present system, and thus snip the education of criminals. The present system Is a sowing to the wind, and Is bound tc reap the whirlwind," ARCHBISHOPATDEATHS DOOR I'll Bli-I m li Sit' the l.nat Npiirk of I. lit- llm Villlh ill Any Mcimrnt ,Now In tttula- ut L'oiini, Haltlmore-, Mil., Oct. 13.
