First Anniversary of Organization For Promotion of Home Life and Civic Betterment Arouses Much Public In terest—Justice I. F. Russell and County Judge Fawcett bpeak. Brooklyn. The Mothers’ club of Brooklyn bus begun an investigation of the disposition made of juvenile of fenders by the children’s court in this city. A committee including Mrs N. B. Dodson, president of the club, visit ed the court and held a conference with the matron. Upon inquiry as to the number of colored boys and girls brought into the court within the past six mouths, the nature of the charge against them aud if held what steps were taken to correct them in order to prevent a recurrence of the same of fense and encourage them to lead a better life the matron stated that the number jn comparison to other races was very small. Only about seven col ored youths had been in the court within this period of time. As to the disposition made of them, some were sent to the juvenile home, and others were either taken in charge by parents or guardians or served short sentences and then released. The committee asked why such youths were not committed to the State Institution For Juvenile Offenders and was told that there was no room for them. The committee is of the opin ion that it is the duty of the state to provide room for all offenders, whether white or colored. The investigation will be continued until the club receives satisfactory in formation from the hgber authorities in the mutter. To show that the club means business the committee Invited Chief Justice Isaac F. Russell of the county court of special sessions to de liver the principal address at the tirst anniversary exercises of the club, which were held in the Concord Bap tist church on Wednesday evening. May 20. Justice Russell's subject was “The Welfare of the Child.” There was a large audience present, and the justice gave a convincing and logical discussion of the subject with fairness and manifest interest in the welfare of the youths of all races and ties. Starting with the child as a babe in the cradle, the speaker gave his opin ion as to the proper training of chil dren and the best methods to use at every period of child life on through the adolescent period until a youth reaches the age of twenty-one He said if the cfeld or youth could be got through the adolescent period safe ly without serious mishaps n« fear need he exercised as to his future wel fare. The foundation must be laid in the home and the course of the <bild’s life carefully watched and guided x until he comes to the age of accountability. It is a good omen for all the people when busy men like Justice Bussell lay aside heavy official duties and come out in the open with the people to assist In working out the many difficult problems relating to the well being of the community. The infor mation received at this meeting will go far toward solving the problem to which the Mothers* club has directed its attention. County Judge Lewie Fawcett on Crime. The May public meeting in the In terest of the Lincoln Settlement as sociation was held in Friends’ meet ing house on Schermerhorn street. The association has under Its supervi sion the free kindergarten work and the mothers’ day nursery. Mr. George E. Wibecan. Jr., one of the board of managers, presided. The speaker was County Judge Lewis Fawcett, whose subject was “Crime — Its Cause and Cure.” Judge Fawcett was introduced by Internal Revenue Collector Charles W. Anderson. Judge Fawcett gave an interesting discourse on the causes of crime and suggested many methods by which the multi plicity of crime might be reduced. He said that prior to the eighteenth century criminals were extremely tor tured. In the nineteenth century the treatment became more humane. Crim inals may be classified ns follows: In sane. born, habitual, occasional, pas sion. The insane criminal belongs to that class of mental Infirmities whose minds are not sufficiently strong to re sist temptations. The born criminal is brutal, cruel, crafty and lazy. His crimes are those of the highwayman, burglar, Black Hand, etc. The occasional criminal Is the man who is morally weak, who is governed by force of circumstances or environ ment. The criminal of passion is be who allows his temper in a moment to get the mastery of hi in to the extent that he may kill a man before he re gains himself. The occasional criminal Is one who does not commit crime from nature; is the one who, when temptations are removed, does not fall again. Defaulters and embezzlers come under this head. Poverty and idleness are largely re sponsible for many of the crimes. The world is full of men and boys who live without working. They arc really the dregs In the cup of life. FJghty-flve per cent of the criminal classes are victims of alcoholic stimulants. 6 METHODIST BODY ENDS SESSION General Conference of A. M. E Church and Its Work. ELECTS FOUR NEW BISHOPS.
