Charles Erandsoa Eooth. grandson
of the late General William liooth
and son of IJalltngton and Maude
Loot!), readied Lincoln Tuesday af
ternoon and went at once to Lancas
ter to confer with Warden Fenton
on the work he expects" to begin here.
Mr. Booth founded the prison devel
opment league seventeen years ago,
and has b?en working ever sine to
ir.ke prisons constructive institu
tions and to keep the irnoct-nt vic
tims from becoming objects o:' char
ity and po'atial criminals.
Mr. Pooth came direct from Den
ver, where he explained his project
in twenty-one addresses in the scvtii
days he was there, and where the
high school students came by hun
dreds to sec him off, and brought him
gifts of flowers. He will be in Lin
coln for several days with II. II. Hall,
secretary of the league, and hopes to
address a number of organizations
here, besides the high schools. If the
local interests justifies it, the league
will open a district office ho$ and
maintain a secretary who wiil direct
the moulding of public opinion to
ward obtaining legislation designed
to permit state prisoners to be self
supporting and put them in a posi
tion to help their families. The of
fice just opened at Denver will serve
Colorado ami Wyoming and the Epis
copal bishop of the latter will serve
as volunteer aide to the secretary.
"Every man in a state's prison
should work for wages," Mr. Booth
said Tuesday, "and living conditions
should as nearly as possible approxi
mate those outside the prison. We
don't want to turn penitentiaries in
'o playgrounds or anything like that,
but if a man is to benefit any by the
imprisonment, so as to be lit to face
the hard time that comes when he
leaves prison, he must live as nearly
as possible like a citizen and a word
ing man inside the gates. He must be
given a realization of his miital po
sition in national life, and he must
be cble to help his wife and children,
who otherwise might themselves be
come part of the criminal population
of the country. Some idea of the im
portance of the plan may come from
contemplating the fact that the crim
inal problem of the United States
costs 1500,000,000 a year more
than all the schools, all the churches,
all the charities."
This, is Mr.' Booth's first visit to
Lincoln, tho members of his distin
guished family have been here on
various occasions and he himself has
visited Nebraska frequently. He and
Mr. Hall will be at the Lindell hotel
for the next week or ten days.
