He that the MUbject coveru every one with which the association haa any- thing to do. The committee, he said, had letters from persona In every stilt in the union, In 'which, they say they are in favor of bringing about a better condition of aftalra and of, havlnff the laws more. closely followed. He said that in i816 and 1S52. when the Indiana constitution was formulated, the princi- ple was that criminal laws should look reform rather than, vengeance. PRISON REFORM IN INDIANA; Not much was done after this un- til in 1897, when the sentiment of 'the people of. the state became stronger in favor of reform institutions. He said-he did not think a future legislature would have the courage to go backward in providing laws contrary to those now1 existing. There are people Jn; Infllank who oppose reforms, Mr, 'Ellison 'said, but they would rather do nothing; than change the. 'practices of their fathers: He held that- the indeterminate .'sen- tence law. has been of, 'great the state, as it haa made' the conviction of guilty criminals, more certain and has reduced the. cost. oC holding the SAN JUAN, Porto IUco.

On the subject of corn-let labor; Mr. El- lison, continuing said: "This subject seems to be n. common meeting ground for all wtio like to talk. The walking del- egate, the radical labor agitator, the pria- on contractor who wants to buy and use the" very life blood of his fellow man. the prison ofliciaJ, the taxpayer and the tax- eater all discuss It. At the last session of the legislature in Indiana a bill war passed that prohibits the making- of-con- tracts, for. tbe hiring out of convicts ant directing the establishment of tfie public account system. As a, member of Hi senate I opposed its passage, not becaup I was In favor of tlie contract system, fo I thpught it a relic of slavery and bar baric cruelty. While the. system, has o late been rid of Its improper fea- tures, there still remains enough of th trafflc'bf human blood and brain in it t condemn It In the mlnds% of all hurac peopled Since then I have givt the subject much thought, and while know that all' systems have their weak nesses. I am of the opinion that the New York scheme is the best that has yet bee evolved. The prisoner must work, not on! for his own good, but society'can not to erate a drone. If we are, to "reform th must see to it that he Is edu eated and trained so that he can care f obeys the silent and inexorable com-] mand of society to be up and doine. T A man convicted of crime does not lose his ability Lo think or to know that he Is being trifled with. If you want oth- ers to do as you wish, you must make them believe you are thoroughly in earnest, an'd that you arc flcaandtng of them all their powers and activities. H you want a prisoner to. become a pood cltiren. you must inculcate within blm tbe hope and bellcC that he can-do so. Let all prison labor be utilized as an edu- cator for the benefit of tho state. Jf the oceipts do not equal the expenditures In money, it win more than pay the state n the moral worth and manhood of these citizens. If one is saved, many in he future will rise tip to call the effort a blessed one rather than to curse thf that made enemies to society out of their forefathers. comprising-th'ejurisdictli THjii ;wltir 'the en. command-o't.ihe other portions of rto Rleo, ith 'the i- OTA CLOTHING STORE ffl THE CITY BUT ONE TO drvii.'up.
