JANUARY 22, 1890. CRUELTY OF TUE LAW. COL. INGERSOLL SPEAKS ON “CRIMES against CRIMINALS.” 364 MAIN STIKE KT, Opposite Iroquois Hotel, An Eloquent Address Itefor* the State Bar Association at Albany—Statistic* Khowiiig that Imprisonment Does Nut Befurin I-aw Breaker* Nor Capital Punishment Diminish Murders. At.DANY, Jan. 23.—The largest ami must distinguish**! audience that haji yet graced tile new laddie hall in this city gathered yra-terday afternoon to attend the oj>**niiig exercise# of the annual ineetiug of the State Bar association. Before 2:30, the hour announced for the opening, every seat in the large auditorium had l*#?ti taken and the private lioxes were 111!.*! with distinguished jurist* and their families. Among Biose present were David Dudley Field, Elliot K.Shephard, Judge John F. Dillon, J. Newton Piero, Judge P. B. Fish, Juliet) T. Davies, Elbridge T. Gerry, Russell A. Parmenter and Homer A. Nelson. Among the occupant* of the boxes were Governor HIU, the judges of the court of appeal#. Hie fcsieral judges, Col. luge reoil'# family urn! Judge Amoux'x family. After a •election by the orchestra the divine blessing was invoked by Rev. Walter W. Batterslmll. President A choux tlu-n delivered Ids annual address. In hi# speech Judge Amour congratulated the aoMrjciutiou u}#»n the untidier present, altin- growth of Uh? liar'# (lower. The increase in numl«rs the feist year had l*s-n gratifying and had lieeji contimsi to no section or class Tile association should lie proud that in the last month oim- of it# inendter# has Ims'oih© a member cif tile I’ourt of ap(i©aJs: another president pro tem of ti ie senate; another speaker of the assembly; one retire* from the governorship of an adjoining state to give place to another in the .sameoffice; one* adorns the highest court a# it* chief judge; another i# governor of the state; and another has been governor and president of tin* United Stab*; and many oilier# might Is* mentioned who have filled in the |wst, or who now fill iuqiortnnt legislative or judicial (msitiora, or who are inffiicuUal in other associations. He spoke of various improvements and reform# which they hoped to inaugurate, including the jury system. The princqml event of the day wa# an oration by Col. Robert G. luge reoil. He spoke on “Crimea Against Criminals.’’ In Iii# moat eloquent vein the colonel recounted the cruel treatment of criminals in past time# and drew attention to the fai t that the more severe the puni#hmcnt the* greater the increase in crime. He attributed this to the- brutalization of the jieople through the infli<*tion aud contemplation of such punishments. He then suggest4si tile inquiry why men should commit crime# at the risk of torture or death, or degradation. Hi# answer wa# that men’n mind# and nature* may lie so deformed that it is just a# impossible for them to do gixxt as it is unjiossible for some men to lie sculptors or philosophers. The criminal fctnsild not lie punished any more than Hie man physically deformed. VU NISH METT DOESN’T DIMINISH CHIME. But society must protect itself against criminals, though it should not. punish them. Here* Col. IngersolJ gave some statistics showing that while in 1850 with a population of 23,0m),OOO, we had between 0,000 and 7,000 prisoners, in ISHO, with 50,000,000 population, we had 5#,<J00 prisoners. In 1*50 we had 15,000 insane, in ISHO, we had 91,mu insane. This show# that our system of punishment is not preventing crime ami insanity from increasing faster than the increase in population. In I SNI, too, tliere were 57,mn) homeless children, and OO,UUU peuj>ers in almshouses. Was there any connection between tin# fact aud the number of prisoners! Th# #ileaker, after arguing that degraila-tion of prisoner# is almost certain to prevent reformation, went on to say: MAN S DINGING FOR LIBERTY. ‘ For hundred# of mrs the work! ha# endeavored lo destroy tin* good by force. It was inqtoKsthie to destroy Hie longing in the heart of man for liberty and truth. I# it md possible that brute force and cruelty and revenge. imprisonment, torture and death are* a* impotent to do away with vice as to destroy virtue! To me it bus always been a mystery how tin* average man, knowing something of the w«*akness of human nature, something of the temptations to which be himself ha# lieen exposed— remembering the evil of hi# life, the things he would have done liad there been opportunity, hail he al** Cutely know n that discovery would be inqiossible— should have feelings of hatred tow ard the imprisoned. Is it possible that the average man assault# the criminal in a spirit of se lf-defense? Doe* lie wish to convince hi# neighbor# that the evil thought aud impulse were never in his mind! Are his word# a shield that lie use# to protect himself from suspicion > For my part I sympathize sincerely with all failure#, with the victims of society, with th«we who have fallen, with the imprison*#!, with the hopeless, with those who have been •ta11it#I by verdict# of guilty, and w ith those who iii tie* moment of jassion have destroyed, a# with a blow, the future of their live#. “How perilous, after all, ie the state of man. It is the work of a life to build a great aint splendid character. It is the work of a moment to destroy it utterly, from turret to foundation stone. How cruel hypocrisy is. Is there any remedy? fan anything I#* done for the reformation of the criminal? He should be treated with kindness. Every right should I#* given him consistent with the safety of society. He should neither la* de-g reded nor robbed.” After portraying the pitiable condition of the ex-convict in hi# struggle to get work and live an honest life, and picturing the usual result—exposure, discharge, renewal of crime and ret uni to prison, the speaker asked: APPROPRIATING THE PRISONER'S LABOR. “Why should tile state take without col ripen sat i< *n the labor of these men: and w by should they, after having lieen imprisoned for year#, be turned out w ithout means of •ujiport? Would it not be far better, far more economical, to pay three men for their labor ao that when released the convict w ill have several hundred d**llai# of hi# own— enough to make it possible for him to commence busine## on hi# own account, enough to keep the wolf of crime from the door of his heart? “8upl*iee the convict conies out w ith $-500; this would form a breastwork, a fortreas, tie-hind which the man could fight temptation. If this were done thousands of convict* would think of the penitentiary as the place in w hich they were saved; they would feel that the verdict of guilty reamed them from the abys# of crime. Die heart of the poor convict, instead of being fillet! w ith malice, would overflow with gratitude. He would feel the lien-efit# of this course, ami the result would be got#!, not only to him, but to th** nation. If the convict w orke*I for himself he would do the l»est Im* could and the w are# pre slut##I in tlx* penitentiaries would not cb«?q>«n til# labor of other men. raoncKsioNAL criminals. “There are. however, men who pursue crime as a vocation—as a profession. What all* 11 be done with these men and women? Put I .UUU hardened thieves on an island—compel them to produce what they eat ami use. Those v. Lo worked would not |»ermit those who did not to steal the result of their labor Such a community would be self-«up|X)rtiug I-et women of the same class be put by them selvea. Those who are beyond the power of reformation should not have the liberty to reproduce themselves. They should dwell apart, aud dyiug, should leave no heirs.” TH* DEATH PENALTY. Col. Ingereoil then argued against the I dfftth penalty for murderers and gave strik ; mg in tit an aas showing that judicial killing not only do** not deter from murder, lait in- | spin*** to further murders. He also remark*#! that such killing encourages mob violence, as the mob rcanon# tliat tbs criminal should be killed anyway, and might a# well lie killed without trial as with. POVERTY AND CRIME “If We are to change the conduct of men, we must change their conditions. Extreme I loverly and crime go hand in-hand As long ns children are raised in tile tenement and gutter the prison# will Ie* full. Tile gulf between the rich am! floor will grow wider and wider. One will depend on cunning, the other on fore*e. It it* a great question whether tbone who live in luxury can afford to allow others to exi it in want. The value of property dej#*nds, not on the prosperity of the few, but on the presqjerity of a very large majority. The poverty of the many is a per-f#*tual menace. If we exjiect a prosperous and peaceful country, the citizens must have homes. The more horn**, the more pntri< >ts. the more virtue, and the more security for all that girts worth to life. PERNICIOUS LANDLORDISM. “We need not refloat the failure# of the old world. To divide lands among siusvwsful general*, or among favorites of the crown, to give vast estate# for services rendered in war. is no worts* than to allow men of great wealth to purchase and hold vast tracts of land. The result i# precisely the same—that is to say, a nation composed of a few landlord# and of many tenant**—the tenant# resorting from time to time to mob violence, and the land Ion I# deluding nj# rn a standing army. It would I# well, a# it seem# to me. for Hie legislature to fix the amount of land that a private citizen may own. The amount to lie thus held will depend upon many l«»cal rir-rumstancew. Ijet me siippo#e that the amount of land that may I#* held by a farmer ha- cultivation ha# been fixed at IOO aer**#, and suppose that A ha# several thousand a re# B w i*l»e« u» buy 180 acre# or loss of this land for the purj#>se of making himself a horn*?. A refuses to sell. Now, I tadieve that the law should lie ar) that B «*an invoke this right of eminent domain and file hi# petition, ha va the ca#e brought l*efor» a jury, or I#*fore commissioner#, who shall hear the evidence and determine the value, and on the fiayuient of the amount the land whall fielotig to B. TO MULTI PLT HOMES “I would extend the same law to Iota and houses in eitie# and villagen—the object lining to HU t>ur country with the owners of home*, so that every child shall have a flreaide, every father and mother a roof, providing they have the intelligence, the energy arni the industry to acquire the non-essary mean# Tenement# and flat# and rented land are, In my judgment, the enrxnim of civilization. They m.ake the rich richer, and the poor floorer. They put a few in palaces, but they jail many in prisons. “The home is the unit of civilization, of flood government; and to secure homes for a great majority of our citizens would be to lay the foundation of our government deefier end broader and stronger than that of any nation that ha# existed among men. No one places a higher value upon the free «#*hool titan I do. But much that is railed education simply unfit# men #ue«"**#fully to fight the twattle of life. Much variable time is wasted in studying languages that long ago were dead, and histories in which there i# no truth. useful education. “The object of all edmation should be to increase the uaefuinen of man. Every human tieing should lie taught that hi# first duty is to take care of himself, and that to tie self n*spcoting he must ba self-sujifiorting. To live on the labor of others, either by force which enslaves, or by cunning which roll#, or by borrowing or liegging, is wholly dishonorable. Every man should lie taught some useful art. Tliis woukl give a feeling of independence, which is the firmest foundation of honor, of character. Every man. knowing that he i# useful, admires himself. In all the schools children should lie taught to work in wood ami iron, to understand the construction an*I use of machinery, to become acquainted w ith the great forces that man is using to do hi# work. The present system of education teaches names, not things. It is a# if we should spend years in learning the names of cards w it bout playing a game. The more real education tile leas crime, and the more homes tile fewer prisons. “Ignorance, filth ain) poverty are the missionaries of crime. As tongas dishonorable sn<##*## outrank# honest effort—as tong a# society bows and cringes before the great thieves, there w ill lie little fines enough to fill the jail#. MORAL RESPONSIBILITY. “All tile penalties, all the punishments are inflicted under a belief that man can do right under all circumstances—that his conduct is abaolutelv under his control, and that his will is a pilot that ran, in spite of winds and tides, reach any port desired. All this is, in my judgment, a mistake. Wa must take into consideration the nature of man—the fact# of mind—th** power of temptation—the limitations of the intellect—tile force of habit—the result of heredity—the power of J assi on—the domination of want—the disease# of the brain —th** tyranny of appetite—the cruelty of conditions—the result# of asm #• tat ion—the effect# of poverty and wealth, of helplessness and power. Our ignorance should make us hesitate. Our weakness should make u# merciful. “I (-annot more fittingly clour this address than by quoting the prayer of the Buddhist: ‘I pray Thee to have pity on the vicious— Thou hast already liad pity on the virtuous by making them so.”* Tile tianquet of the Bar association, held at the Delavan house laid evening at 8 o'clock, was bv far the largest the organization ha# ever held. Tile banquet hall was full to overflowing. After the inner man had been satisfied. the following toast# were responded to: “The State,” by Governor Hill; “The Ijegis-lature,” by Speaker Husted; “Lawyer# a# legislators," by Senator Unwon; “Indies as lawyers." by Col. Ingwrsoll; “The Press and the Secret of it# Increasing Influence,” by the Rev. Patrick Cronin, editor of The Catholic Union of Buffalo. Arrested for Forgery. New York, Jan. 22.—Seth R.

Rotary Snow Flown Breaking Up the Drift# on tho Northern Foil tic—Fatal Accident to Trainmen — A Fa#*enger Die# and I# Hurl#*! by Men ou Snow Show*—A Plucky Reporter. San Francisco, Jan 22 —The prospect# are that the great snow blockade on the Central Pacific road will tie cleared nome tune to-day. Clear weather is reported at all stations from Rocklin to Truckee with one or two exception#. At Ciscoe the snow is fifteen feet deep on the level, and in the drift# tile snow is three or four times a# deep. Fifteen engine# are at work w ith the rotary plow near Champion's Spur. The snow was thrown fifteen feet on either side of th* track On* hundred and fifty Know shoveller*, who were engaged in digging a trench, were surprised and completely buried by snow from the plow. They were not liadly injured. The way i* now* chair to Tunnel No. 13. The rail rood official.# say that tho road will surely ii# opened by to-day. Heavy slide# and drift#, however, are nqiorted between Truckee and Ecca. A rotary plow is clearing a mad to Blue Canyon and it i# expected to clear the track to tile two imprisoned jiassenger train# between Blue Canyon and Alta within a few hours. None of the Know #h*#|# liave caved in, although Hie weight of the snow in some pla«s*s i# very lieavy. The average depth of snow utong Hie shist# is twenty f«#*t. Over I .OHO Know shoveller# ar* on the mountains. Truckee is cut off from all communicat ion w ith the outside world, tint this is true of all mining and other town# in the Sierras. A iiasseuger named A. E l^angford died of pneumonia, superinduced by an attack of the grip, and was buried by men on snow shoes at Truckee Tuesday, it tieing impossible ta break th# road to the cemetery. Jacob Dint/, a snow shoveller, wa# killed at Colfax by being struck by a car. imprisoned passengers. Most of the |ia#Hengers in the two traini near Blue Canyon are well provided for th# delay. Among til# eastern jia-saenger* on the imprisoned train# are the following:    E. J. Dallier, Bocatello, IIL; J. C. Franger and family, and Win. Nevitt, of Bozeman, Mont.; Cliver D. Rider of Rochester, N. Y.; F. P. Roliert# of Maple Park, III.; C. F. Weir of Chi*ago; C. S. Bernstein of New York; Mist J. S Bren* la 11 of Galena, 111.; Mis* Bailer of New Hampshire; H. C. Coleman of Morristown, Pa. At Dutch Flat, on the western slope of the Sierra#, there are seven feet of snow on the level—two feet more than ever liefore recorded. Tile wagon mud# are all blockaded. Many howe* have l#*en crushed by Hie snow, but no lives have lieen hist. Snow shoe* are the only means of getting about. In aihlition to the imprisoned trains near Blue Canyon two eastbound ptu*»*nger trains are snowed in near Shady Bun. The railroad jxaople have done everything in their power bi make the (tass*niger# comfortable. BOUND TO CAT!'II MISS BLY. John J. Jennings, a newspnjier man who campout to meet Mi## Nellie Bly in San Francisco and escort her to New York, was caught in the blockade several days, and then made the journey fr«»m Blue Canyon bi Alta on Know shoe#, ami from there rode on an engine to Sacramento. At Sacramento Mr. Jennings took a sfiecial train to ixwneet with Miss Bly at Lathrop. On the Oregon road the jia-saenger trains iiound to and from Portland ar* still stuck in the deep snows of the SLskyan range The passengers on some of tile trains tietween Sims*ms and Edgewood are said to be short of food. First Train for a Wrek. P* iktland, Ore., Jan. 22.—The first through train for the past week arrived here at 5 o'clock last evening over the Union Pacific line from the East. It brought 250 passengers. A second train arrived an hour later. A third came at 3 o'clock this morning Th**#e two trains brought HOO |ia#senger# and 1,500 sack# of mail. Unless another storm follow# tile road con now be kept open. The blockade on th** Southern Pacific remains unbroken. There have linen no train# from San Fran cis* Y> for over a week. All Northern Pacific trains east and west are reported cm time. CHINESE LABORERS. Another Gang un Their Way to New York Under Contract. Pittsburg, Jan. 22.—A second detachment of twelve Chinese laborer#, bound for New York, passed through the city yester*lay. The first gang of laborers pa»##l through to New York on the 17th inst. Lieu Chien, the reprenentative of the Chinese cotn|iany who brought the first squad through from San Franc!*##!, met the party bere ami blok charge of them. During a conversation Lieu Chien said the company he represented, which was to supply the New York contractors with laborers, had another party of fifty men on the way East in charge of one of the principal men of the company. This party will go to New York by way of th** New York Central road and will arrive in New York the first of next week.

New York, Jan 22.—The second * lay’s deistic of the New York Presbytery at the Second Presbyterian *'hureh yesterday on the question of making the change# iii the confession of faith advised by the committee of tw elve, was w arm ami showed strong opp within to the ('bange on the jiart of Rev. Dr. John H. Hall and other clergymen. But there were other clergymen who a# stoutly maintained that the doctrine that some men, willy nilly, were foreordained bi damnatio?! should no hinger lie a pu t of their creed and the tenth chapter of th** confession, which discriminate# tietween elect ami non-elect infant# dying in infancy, also found strong opponent.#. Th# princi|*al sp*ech against the report of the committee wa# mad** by Rev. Dr. John Hall. He spike long aud cogently from a dogmatic stand|smit, arguing Dint no « bange w hatever should lie made, lie did not believe part of the couft’tkion could lie considered standing alone projierly, but that each jiart must be construed with Die rest There are 1*814# of the Bible which if considered separately might give ouuse for offense, hut when interpreted by the rest of the scripture# they Ion© that chartwteristie. F>*r in-tanre, the passage. “Go*! is n jealous God, visiting the iniquity of tha father# on the children," ab*. Hcoffers might take offense at this jia#-#age standing alone. So with part# of the confession He wa# against A rn* en i ani# rn and in favor of Calvinism. The Armenian# are allied with sect# whose doctrines tend bi lend to the church of Rome. He advisist that the history of the Armenians be read. There was a tendency to attribute infinite g«*<>d nature bi God and to deny eternal J enmities While opp###1 to the change# #ugg**sted. he was also opp###! to the formation of a confession from scripture jiassag**# He said: “A cr**©*! of scripture imxsage# would lie no creed at all, no more than a hymn i# a prayer." Rev. E. W. K. Birch fell in lim* with Dr. Hall and said the committee want***! them to accept the doctrine of elevation w ithout it# conclusions. The pnncipil speech of the day in favor of the revision was mu* Ie by Rev. Dr. It. R. Booth, win##* fervent addr**##, in spite of tho fact that the assembly bad decided there should bi* no demonstration, wa# roundly ap plauded when concliidtsl Dr. Booth said lie had preached a# long as Dr. Hall amt wa# desirous of having the doctrine of "whosoever will,* rather than the doctrine of election, in the creed. It i# not declared in the bible that God has piss bisti rn# I men. He did not l#*liev# in it and no one had ever question*#! his orthodoxy. He thought the conf ms ion could tie liettored by eliminating what made it so offensive. Rev. ('barie# Thump*#*!! also advocated a change, liecause “the confession no longer represent# the faith of our church. ltd*#*# not represent oiq* views of the Bible.” A working creed w’as need*#I, and chapter# 3 and IO of the confession were stumbling blocks. Rev. A. Ijowery and R*?v. Alexander Mac-Ii©an, I#itll opp##*d bi Die revision, also ad-dre»##l the lindy. The further consideration of the subject was adjourned until today.
