EXCHANGE Chief Exponent of Stock Traffic Reg ulation Goes on Floor Special to The GlobeGazatto New York March stock exchange recleved an unexpected visit from United States Senator Robert L Owen chairman of the senate committee on banking and currency and chief exponent of the proponed regulations affecting the operations of stock Owen was admitted to the floor and escort ed about by Vice President Pomoroy and several of the governors of the exchange Study of the stock ex change at first hand Is tihe object ol Owens visit which time comparative regularity but has been allowed to run with companions who are unable to give him good im pulses He joined with the first boy in the roller coaster enterprise and several others Five different times he was called to bhe attention of the police and was given another chance In this the po lice were unquestionably negligent or had not the time to attend to the boy through the juvenile court Then the boys turned sixteen years of age and they figured that they were no longer subject to the former threats of the police that hey would be taken before the juvenile court and so they de cided to try their hand at house jreaking On a Saturday afternoon they broke into an empty house and stripped It of its electric light fix tures On learning that there was possibility of their being apprehend ed they took their loit to the hank of Willow oreek and there destroyed it This called them to the attention of the police and ihavlng been bother ed wtlh the boys so many times It was decided that something must be done definitely this time The boys were then shown that they had mis calculated and that it was much more serious to commit a crime after pass Ing the juvenile court age than it had been before They had gathered that this was not so in as much as another member of their gang had been caugiht after making trouble and in as much aa he was sixteen years of age he had been allowed to pay a fine ond go his way This the boys felt was a very easy way of get ting out of trouble and that in con sideration of It they could take the risk of breaking the law The prob lem confronting the police and proba tion department was how to handle these boys definitely and yet not too ueverely jn the case of the boy who had lost his hearing no cooperation could be secured from the home and It was necessary to Indict the boy find hltn guilty of housebreaking and then commute his penitentiary sentence to the Boys Industrial School at Eldora In the case of the boy who has parents it was possible to secure from them a statement that bhe boy was incorrig ible and could not be controlled This statement was used as an application to the court and the boy was com mitted to Eldora as an Incorrigible Thus the second hoy waa saved the stigma of a court reoord as a crimin al It la unfortunate that both boys could not have been saved this rec ord but in order to do that which was best for these two victims of neglect it was necessary to record one of them as the criminal that he had made himself deterrent factor against such legisla tion but asserted he was confident that would not occur The bill prom ises to compensate the
