larceny. He was tracked to a wooded
place near Qiiencmo by the city mar-

40 miles southwest from Fort Leaven-
worth , and a dozen men bearing rifles.
An order to surrender wns met with
defiance , and Lewis , unarmed , and al
though practically surrounded , darted
for the nearest opening. He had
gone scarcely 100 yards when a bul
let from a Winchester , In the hands
f one of his pursuers , pierced his
lung from behind and brought him to

plundering farms all along. Many
liave had encounters with the men
and people along the route are afraid
to venture out of their houses. In
Lyon county citizens and ofllcers arc
armed and are patrollng the approaches
preaches to the town , as the convicts
will probably pass that way.
The convicts are seemingly becom
ing bolder and are Invading iowns.

and a corporal fixed up the plan to

Ing after having left papers of mine
In the pockets of the stiff's clothes.
Of course , when the hotel burned we
expected the stiff to be burned up , too ,

President Fuller's Annual Address Be
fore Wardens' Association.
Kansas City , Nov. 11 ! . Delivering
his annual address before the war
den's association at the n initial con
gress here of the National 1'rlson as
sociation , Otis Fuller , president of the
association and superintendent of the
Michigan state reformatory , said :
"The good citizen must stand between
the state Institution ami the political
plunderer. "
Mr. Fuller had spoken of the
mighty strides America had made In
the past decade and asked : "Is prison
management keeping up with the pro
cession ? "
Continuing , ho said : "I think that
In most respects It Is. I am sure that
In one respect It Is not. I refer now
to the political brigandage , which Is
still prevalent In a few states the
bold , bad brigandage which ruthlessly
seizes not only the prisons , but all
the other public Institutions and holds
them for political ransom. Honest ,
clllclcnt , wise and humane prison
management cannot reach Its highest
stage of development until the out
raged taxpayers and the humanitarian
takes the ward heeler by the throat. "
Mr. Fuller said that prison reform
must start further back than the pris
on. It must educate the lawmakers.
"It must above all , " said he , "wipe out
the pernicious fee system which gives ]
the constables so many dollars for ,
arresting a fellow dtl'/on , the justice
of the pence so many dollars for con
victing him and the sheriff HO many
cents a day for feeding him or starving
ing him , as his humanity or avarlco
may dictate. "
The fee system , ho declared , was a
blot on the fair pages of the 20th cen
tury. Mr. Fuller urged a more Intelli
gent discrimination between first of
fenders and hardened criminals.
