Doyle Club. GOV. DYER READY TO HELP, Rev. Mr. Tomjkins Said Such a Law Would Save the Children From Templation, SUPERINTENDENT TARBELL'S VIEW. The Boy of the Cutter is Smart, bul in a Way That is Not Desirable, Ke Said- Other Inierest ing Remarks Were Made. Notwithstanding the storm there was a large attendance at the meeting of the Sarah K, Doyle Club in the Mannal Training High School hall last evening to lsten to some interesting addresses on the subject, “Is the Curfew Law Desirable?” Rev., Willlam 1. Simmons, one of the speakers named on the card, was much deplored by those present, Miss Charlotte Blundell, president of the club, presided and introduced as first speaker of the evening, His lx. cellency Governor Dyer, who sald that he is always ready to lend his voice and all effort in behalf of the teachers if he had to slide every foot of the way to the hall, He does not know just how far the curfew law is applicable to con ditions in this state today, but he will do everything in his power to help bring about the conditions among the children that shall help them, Rev, Floyd W.Tompking was next in troduced and said substantially: | would not give much for a manor wom an whe did not care very much about the children., There i nothing that marks our civilization so grandly as the cry of a child, It shows us that we value the life of a child, as what that child may be in the future, It seems to me that the curfew law must be a ben efit to the community, This law designs that children at an age 12 to 13 or 114 years unaccompanied by a parent or guardian shall not be permitted on the street after say 9 o'clock, 1 would not have my daughter on the streets alone at night, my children at the age of 12 vears should be in bed by 9 o'clock. But if they are not in bed by 9 o'clock they should not be on the streets at that hour. Some parents do not know how to educate their children and it ig right that a law should be passed making it necessgary that the children be properly cared for. The advantage of the law ig to save the children from awful temptation. No worker amongst girls or boys, no work er among the slums is ignorant of the fact that the temptations to young children are terrific. You can tell by the appearance of the child when it comes in the school room in the morning whether that child has been doing what is wrong. The curfew says that it is wrong for the child to be out after n certain hour, because the future de mands that the child be strong and ca pable. This strength and standing of the child in the future is a responsibil ity of the municipality. We have some of the worst places in Providence 1 ever saw in my life, T love Providence very much indead but there are some awful places in the tenement districts of the city, The curfew does not impose hard ghips comparatively speaking, Dr. Horace Tarbell, superintendent of schools, spoke in part as follows: [ sup pose 1 have covered in thought every thing for and against the law that can be considered, If we would have good gociety the best people should become leaders and control others, There is a development in the streets. The gutter boy is smart. He gets a power which the better boy, the boy at home does not have. The seven-year boy at home is not g 0 smart in the elements of the street as the boy who gaing his knowl edge from the streets, The shrewdness that comes from the education of the streets s not desira ble. The child that matures carly under the influence of the street will always be small. We better the homes if we put the children into the homes, God meant that the old and the young should grow together, It is better to have the children with the parents, for the benefit of the children and for the benefit of the parents. It is when we grow quietly and get the best of what comes in life that we get the benefits and we do not get it when the nights are spent in digsipation, The great problem of the 20th century will be what shall society do to regulate con ditions, The strong shall guide the weak. Mayor Henry G, Thresher of Central Falls was present and addressed the gathering. He gaid that the matter of the children and the streets is one of the most gerions questions before the public today. He gpoke of music in the saloons, several cases of which were peculiar to the city not long ago, and of the contemplation of the children to go into the saloons under influence of it, lawsg have sub sequently been made prohibiting music in saloons, ‘lThe curfew law would reach the best familles as well as the poorer ones, He has written the may ors of a dozen or more eities and finds them with one exceplion, in favor of the Jaw. "1t I¢ far better to prevent crime than to cure it after it is com mitted, Rev, Willard 8. Sellecek made a Lirief but very able discourse in favor of the law. In most western cities the curfew law has not been in action for a great while, my thought has been in regard to this law, that it is better to let the other fellow do the experimenting, for the law I 8 now in the experimental stages, We are already to say toat the real school of human society Is the family, The full appreciation of the family is what we want to bring about. The education of the street = a demor alizing cation In the main. There are s who have no control aver their chifdren., Mr., Selleck can see how the law might benefit such but it s not the way to make boys and girls moral to ring a bell to cal. them, The duty is to make the house attractive, We are dealing with results, He de plored the ligquor traffie, Dr. David Blaustein of the Educa tional Aalanee of New York oty spok at some lengthe In the main as ol (Continued on Page Six) THE NEWS, PROVIDENCE, R. 1., SATURDAY, JANUARY 14, 1899. GLOSE OF THE MILK INQUIRY, Complainant Emory Permits His Counsel to Taks a Hand. MR, BURBANK CROSS-EXAMINES Inspector Perk'ns Gives Clear and Concise Rnswers as 1o Analyses. HE ALSO MAKES EMPHATIC DENIAL. Declares He Never Depended More Upon Mr. Mr. Easlerbrooks” Tests Than on His Own. Easterbrodks Gives Mis Side. The investigation into the charges brought against Inspector of Milk Per- Kins by Jolin W, EKmory, his former col lector of samples, was resumed at 7:40 o'clock last evening in the Municipul Court room, city hall, before the mems berg of the gpecial aldermanic comimit= tee, Messrs, Lowe, Vincent and Mce- Carthy, ex-Alderman Lowe presiding. A charge was made in the method adopted hercetofore by Mr. wmory, and lagt evening he permitied his counsel, Mr. Robert W, Burbank and Mr, J, 8 Murdock, to cross-examine and ask all necessary questions, which allowed the investigation to proceed with greater rapidity, Mr, A, J. CCushing again con ducted the case for Mr, Perkins, Mr, Burbank at once commenced pro ceedings by resuming the cross-exami nation of Mr, Perking at wine point ‘at which he had stopped on Tuesday even ing. Mr., Perking was asked for the figures in the analyses made in a num ber of cases, parteulariv as to the comparison of figures betveen the an aly=es on the same sample made hy Mr, Perking, Dr, Davenport of Loston and Mr. Easterbrooks, who was the chems ist employed by the milk department. Mr, Perking gave his answers in a clear and concige manner, and explain ed why he had not prosecuted tne Nass, Jordan, urant cases and further ex plained how he had made his tests, and he emphaticaliy stated that he had never depended more upon Mr, lLaster brooks for tests than upon himself, He had never told a young man named Batchelor from Brown University that Mr. Easterbrooks knew moie about matters than he did, Mr, Perkine was asked if he had not refrained from prosecuting cases where he expected opposition, and he replied that he had never adopted such a course, He had not brougnt any cases vetr in the Common Pleas Division of the Supreme Court because he had not had time to do go since his election of office, Mr, Burbank's question at this point became directed towards the ability of Mr, Perkins as a chemist, and this called for a protest from Mr. Cushing, who claimed that the complainant must confine himself to the specifications in the charges, and in this view he was sugtained by the committee, More questions were asked, and there was a great deal of levity, which was provoked by the remarks of the com plainant's counsel, and a member of the committee remarked, “If we ure go ing to have an investigation let us have an investigation, but do not let us have a farce” Mr. Perking emphatically stated that he had never requested the chief of police to digcontinue a number of cases prepared by his predecessor in office, In redirect Mr., Perkins said that since he had been in charge of the of fice he had issued nine warrants, and that his work of yesterday would prob ably result in three more, Mr. Cushing attempted to show that Mr. Emory was not sincere in making the charges, because he had never call ed attention to what Mr., Perking' pres decessor had done, or rather what he had not done, but the commitiee de cided that Mr. Potter was not under investigation, and ruled the question out, In answer to Mr. Cushing in regard to the difference in preliminary and final tests, Mr. Perking said the difference was very slight if the tests were pro perly made. He denied that he had not made preliminary tests because he did not understand the operation of the Babeock tester, for as a matter of fact he understood its principle thoroughly and knew how to use it, He had used the Babcock tester since he had been in ofhee, Mr., Burbank then called Assistant City Solicitor Greenough to the stand, and he was examined by afr, Murdock in regard to his advice to the milk de partment He explained the skim milk cases, and gaid that he had told Mr, I'erking that such cases could not be brought owing to a lack of law upon the subject, He had told Mr. Perkins that ull cases ghould be very carefully prepared, for there are a great many elements in addition to the chemical analysges to be considered, and he had explained certain matters to My, Per kins, and he believed he had told him to bing strong cases, and he also asked him to give the law deparument a little leeway in the limit of the anailyses, Mr. Emory, the complainans, was re called to the stand, and he stated that he had heard My, Perkins tell Mr. Kasterbrooks that he nad tested one of Grant's sample for one hour, There was no crosscexamination upon the part of Mr, Cushing. Mr. Bachelor was called and he stated that Mr. Perkins had told him that Mr. Easterbrooks knew more about it that he did, Mr. Basterbrooks was called and an swered one or two questions in regard to hig relationsg with Mr, Perkins, and then Mr. Cushing asking certain ques. tiong In regard to tests made by My, Kagterbrooks, which resulted in the wit ness admitting that there wore errors on the cardse which, however, wepe clerieal errors mainlv, " The witness denied that Mr. Perkins was compelled te keep a continual watch over his work, and stated that Mr. Perkinsg did not understand the oneration of the Babcock tester, At this point the case was rested, and the counsel approached the committee and in low tones conferred with the committee, le was finally decided that no arguments shonld he made, and Mesgsrs, Cushing, Burbank and Mur dock called the attention of the mom berg of the committee o gome of the leading pointg, and Chalrmman Lovwe an nounged that the hearing was closed, SHEFRPARD CARD.
