BoSTOjf , August .29. f Special Telegram
fothellEE. ) Jesse I'omnroy , the boy mur
derer , made another well-planned and desper
ate attempt to escape from the Charleston
state prison a few nights ago by sawing
through tlio bars of his coll. It was purely
by accident that tlio young murderer's plan
was discovered , otherwise he would have sue-
deeded. On Pomcroj's person were found
two line saws of the best chilled steel and a
quantity of gelatine , which ho had lined to
hide his work. Ills cell was built for
blm nnd the prison authorities
have frequently answered the young
nan's murderous threats by saying that If he
could escape from that cell he was at liberty
to kilt as many people as he Ilkud. Last Fri
day night Keeper Wlnslow went his rounds
as usual , and while waiting to bo relieved
by the next watch leaned accidentally
against tlio grating of the window which
opens from the corridor opposite Pomerpy's
cell Into the prison yard. Two of the great
loch and a halt bars fell to tlio pavement
bejow. IJy testing the bars In the little win
dow of the young murderer's cell It was
found that enough ot them had be > m sawed
through to iidin It the passage of a man's
body. They were held In place by gelatine * ,
COlorrd by blt ot steel tilings , so that It
could not be detected. 1'omcroy was furious
at the discovery of his plot , and declared
that If they given htm time to saw one
bar more in the corridor window he would
have killed the watchman and made good
bis escape. To do this would require the
help ot confcdeiatcs outside before ho could
bavo escaped the hlch prison wall which
surrounds the yard. The prison olliclals bo-
llevfl that all this had boon arranged , and
that Friday night had been sot for his es
cape. It la also ttio opinion ot the keepers
that Pomoroy's aged mother , who Is devoted
M her son , supplied him with saws and ar
ranged the other details ot his expected es

President Diaz Is the Cxsar ot the republic.
General Uonzales is the only man who can

does not seem disposed to be again
a candldatn against Diaz. The country is
far from prosperous because of the fact that

The prince spoke of meeting Minister Sedg-
wlrk In the City ot Mexico. Ho was with htm
at thn famous ball. He remarked that Sodg-

Berlin Correspondence : The cause ol

voiceis saiu to bo temper. A lady who la
personally very well acquainted with the
Hungarian singer has related some won-
derfiilAjpisodes in which the passionate
display of Gorstor's temper seems to have

crudenco upon being related. As is well

and emotions In excess of uny kind what
ever arc strictly tubooed by vocitl in

of external circumstances , by which Is
ncant the surroundings , opinions ,
cnowlcdge , association , and in a word ,
.ho entire mental atmosphere in which
tlio two children are respectively nur
tured. " Hence , when children are early
reclaimed from criminal and pauper
association , nnd their condition changed
to that of wholesome iniluencns , they
arc , to all intents and purposes , on tlio
same vantage grounds as these whom
fortune has moro highly favored on their
advent into the world ,
It is the belief ot these who have bcon
close observers that the agitation of now
questions in politics and in our whole
social economy will moro speedily ml-
vmco public sentiment in favor of the
.jreut work of reclaiming children. So
far as the hardened criminal Is concerned ,
reform is next to Impossible It Is not
impossible , hownver. to prevent children
From becoming criminals and burdens to
-ninety. The Children's homo is the train
ing school where they are taught to become -
come producers rather than consumers ;
.0 become ornaments to society rather
than a disgrace ; nnd in a wordto become
useful men and women , The Hume is
thus made a homo , a school , a chapel , n
tliul of workshop , where all thn facilities
nru developed , and when n chid is lilted
to enter a good home for adoption , it is
desirable that it should enter upon its new
life without unnecessary delay.
The treuius of reform is abroad in our
state. In no part of the country has the
question of prison reform and kindred
topics bcon ngltatcd to a greater extent
than in Ohio. Public sentiment is in ad
vance of the politicians. The two great
parties have been compelled to recognize
this fact by pledges in their conventions
to enact such measures as will most
speedily etlect the reform desired. En
lightened public sentiment is such Unit
we feel assured that no backward step
will be met with approval from the pee
ple. The system , it it may bo so called ,
if district and county homes for children ,
lias proved the most important factor
yet introduced for diminishing the num
ber of criminalsby making good citizens
of the oll'spring of otlbnders.
It may therefore be said in a word that
the work of saving children is best ac
complished by securing those who are.
surrounded by the pauper ami criminal
classes at the earliest possible age , and
placing them in homes. They hhould
there remain until they are thoroughly
Httcd to enter homes provided for them
by legal adoption.
Home adoption , not institution life , is
a monument of human salvation to many
little ones.
There does not appear to bo danger of
over-crowding the homes. New homos
ire being established in the state , ami
the day is not far distant when every one
of the eighty-eight counties of Ohio will
jithor have homo of its own or bo em
braced in a district homo.
By a proper appeal to the citizens of
each county and district to receive for
adoption those who have bcon trained
and educated to enter homes of adop
tion none ot the homes will become over
crowded. The way to usefulness is open
to all. There is too much life and activ
ity in this country for a boy or girl to
long remain in idleness. Qualify them
for the duties of life , point the way and
they will walk therein and bo saved.

The study of social problems is taking
a share of public attention , and thought
ful people arc seeking methods for the
prevention of the many evils which this
study has shown to exist. The first few
years of life are generally indicative of
the future In store far the child , and any
effort in his behalf , to bo successful ,
night to be mndo when the young mind
is most ready to receive and retain im
pressions. One of the creat faults of our
charitable machinery is that it
seeks to ameliorate rather than
i > rovont distress , and while there
are numberless associations to reform the
vicious , there are comparatively few
whoso object is to prevent the formation
of vicious characters. As society is con
stituted to-day , there are many evil influ
ences which crow stronger to destroy the
moral life with each year , for the reason
that wo begiu our oltorts for reform at
the wrong end , permitting evil to have
full sway of the earlier years of life. To
make society pure we must know its
darker side and rcali/.u the' presence of
evil , which , loft to themselves , will ulti
mately destroy the body politic.
In a quarter of the great city , down
near the water front are many narrow
streets where the houses bear the marks
of hard usages. As the commercial ac
tivities of the city increased , business
warehouses encroached more and moro
upon this section , driving out the mer
chants and well-to-do people. In time
the houses wore noglccted , the streets
were left unclean , and as a general air of
poverty nnd decay settled on the quarter
the moral tone seemed to lower until at
last , where once respectability and wealth
had dwelt , poverty , vice and crime held
sway. The fronts of these houses were
altered into stores , and what with junk-
shops , saloons , stores and stables , the
street was entirely changed. But this
view from the sidnwalk does not tell tlio
whole story , for there is a certain re
straint put on these who live in these
buildings , and the waifs , the vagrants
and criminals seek a greater seclusion
from onicial eyes than possible in build
ings fronting the streets. Hero is gath
ered some ot the most degraded as well
as some of the poorest people in the city.
Hero the homeless can tiud shelter in col
lars , and here the child waif drifts
for the sake of company with other out
casts like himself , This is Shinbone
allev. Its inhabitants were handicapped
at birth , and every one of the surround
ings impelled the poor children toward a
life of vice. Drink is the general cus
tom. It is not wrong in their eyes. On
the streets anU docks drinking , smoking
and swearing are habits that impress
these little ones , and powerful inlluence
of evil associates soon drive out the de
sire for the higher life , anil old ideas and
vicious habits resume sway over the
young mind.
Institutions for tlio Care of Children.
Mrs. Li/, Gorgas , matron ol the
Child's homo at Duliauco , O. , read a
paper on the location and buildings ol
institutions for the * care of children. II
runs as follows :
To those who have had experience in
the administration of a home properly
located , with buildings adapted to it :
purpose , the task might have proved an
easy ono. But to these who labor undei
the inconvenience of an ill-chosen local
ity , ill-arranged and inadequate build
ings , the task Is not an easy one. The
first consideration should bo a healthful
location. The homo should bo located
near some large oommunitv and
business center , thereby securing sup
plies nnd social InUucnce by having { I
easy of access to the people. In addition
to this the further advantages of churches
schools and social entertainment should
bo considered , such as pertain to the ordi
nary life of the American child. My only
objection to the location near a town f ;
the usua * high price of land. This ob
jectlou however would give way to
proper appreciation of just what is
needed , because the mlatakn boa boon
that largo premises wore regarded SJ
nccc&rary. Miatakea have been niude ii
regarding largo premise * aa ea
aeutial to economic- ) management ani !
industrial training of children. There it
no economy In a location remote from I
business centre , and , whllo It is true thai
children should bo trained to habits ol
industry , it should , bo , remembered thai
this labor could uovor bo productive ex
cept by retaining 'children beyond the
ago at which Ihcjr-should bo placed in
families. This object can , and is more
likely to bo secured 'by nmall promises ,
and moderate sized' ' .buildings than where
the promises are large , and the building !
more capacious ,
The homo building should bo open on
all sides to the frcocirculation of nir.ant
especial regard ' 'should ' bo given tc
the dny rooms" 6ccunlcd by thi
children , seour'ne'n ' southern exposure
wherever practlclabhj. Many recognize
the fact that a property arranged nursorj
will diminish doctor ? bills and get the
ox | > orienco and forethought which might
prevent disease , nro wanting.
The many stops to bo taken , the multi
form duties to bo discharged , the number
less attentions to bo bestowed , the dis
criminating uQ'ecttons to bo experienced ,
nnd the over present and always unvary
ing anxieties incident to A household ol
little children who have boon domivec
of the affections , social sympathy
nnd moral restraints of thi
ordinary family life , is r
stupendous task , the measure of which
can only bo known to an experience ac
quired under a conscientious effort te
supply as neatly as passible these ( .eprl-
vations. This kind of homo life ap
proaokcs as nearly as possible to tin
ideal family life , and this ideals cur
scarcely fail to make a deep and lastinc
impression on the mind and heart ot tin
child , These impressions once ilxed an
the best guarantee of a happy , prosper
otis anil useful life , uuil constitutes tlu
best reward to such as devote their life
aud labor to the care and training o
homeless children. _
Afternoon Session.
Yesterday afternoon the members ol
the conference assembled in Boyd'sopers
houso. There was a slight delay in open
ing the doors , but it being the Iirst regular
lar session in this building , the delay was
easily accounted for. The first meeting
of the members was held in this placi
last week , but no business of importanc *
was transacted at tlio time. All f urthei
business to bo transacted in conucctior
witli the conference will bo attended tc
in the opera house.
It must bo said that the delcgatlor
which constituted the conference made i
more creditable appearance in tlio open
house than in Exposition hall. They np
poured to better advantage probably , bin
when it is remembered that many o :
the superintendents of the state re

slon in the late afternoon. A Pennsyl
van i a delegate insisted , ( hat the fedora
ollicials should have ctUirgo of the ques
tioii and it should bu , , taken from th
state olliclals. Ho claimed there was :
dearth ot laboring .men among th
farmers of the cast and if restnctioi
were placed on emigration there wouli
still be moro restriction. ; ' The laws o
1883 were sufllciunilf Restrictive. If i
were known that laborjwas so dosirabl
in the east the factors claim there woul
bo danger of strikes. * *
Dr. Hill , of Oregori. IBRU ! that ther
was great danger Irani indiscriminitt
emigration. Ninety cants a day mo ;
were multiplying too fast. If the appli
cation of proscription was allowable 01
the western coast it should be applicabl
to the eastern coast. Ho compared th
Chinese to the obnoxious class who lowered
erod labor , who were willing to wor
for wages not lit to support themsolvu
ana families in the decent stvlo require *
by civilization. The fact that in Penn
s.ylvauia coal and iron mines men wer
scarce is no criterion. They come wes
where they cnn obtain acres for nlmoe
nothing. Ho maintained that no matte

made to learn the principles of the natio
before becoming a citizen.

A Cattle Man "Ole&nod Oat" in a South
Omaha Hotel
Arrest niul Etcnpo From the Train of
the Scoonel Thlof-llls Wife
Jailed and Suing To *
About a week ngo nt the Benson house ,
South Omaha , a cattle dealer named En-
wards was robbed of f 150 and n gold
watch worth | 200 by Fred Hawps , nn
employe of the hotel. Edwards on re
tiring that night had loft his valuables in
the pockets of his trousers which ho
had thrown over & chair and Hawos
sneaked into the room nnd rifled the
pockets. On the next day Hawcs
laughed at the row that Edwards created
over his loss nnd ' that night
ho got drunk. Falling in with
Mike Fiuroll , a butcher in the
Anglo-American packing house , Hawes
in a drunken outbreak of confidence
revealed his fortunate strike. Fnrroll
engineered affairs so that the evening
was put in to the best advantage nnd
woundup at his own homo with Hawos
as guest. Fnrroll has n wife , Lizzie , an
extremely attractive woman , who is now
r.cmisod in taking some part in
what befell Hawos. When the
inebriated thief awoke next morn
ing ho mndo tiio discovery
that all his plunder nnd the genial Mike
had vanished. Mrs. Fnrrcl was of course
very much astonished , know nothing of
her husband's wheroaboutsand felt quito
put out over the event. Hawcs was fully
on to the situation and determined to
substitute for his lost wealth the next best
thing revenge. Ho sought out Marshal
Rico , the South Omaha police chieftain ,
and without mentioning his own connec
tion with the case , told the oificcr that
Farrell hao stolen Edwards' money , and
that the fugitive could be run down by
shadowing his wife. Thus delivering
himself , llawca lied the town and
has not since bcon scon. The
marshal had little faith in Howe's
"friendly tip , "but kept an eye out for
Mrs. Farrell , with the result of detecting
her that very day leave the town ticketed
for Malvern , la. On the same train , but
in another coach , the marshal
took passage , and following the
woman from the depot nt Malvern
to the house , which seemed to bo her
destination , discovered Mike .Farrell
there iu proper person and good health.
The Marshal introduced himself without
delay , and after a little persuasion Far
rell ana his wife agreed to return to
Nebraska without a requisition. This was
on Sunday last and that night the
trio started on their return trip. The
marshal refrained from nsmg any ap
pliances for restraint , contenting him
self with keeping close surveillance on
his prisoners. His watch , however , was
not close enough , for about mid-way the
journey , Fnrroll slipped off at a water
ing tank station nnd his ab
sence was not noted for some
time. Uico , however , kept the woman
safely iu custody and reached South
Omaha with her yesterday morning.
Yesterday afternoon some of her friends
came before Judge Neville anel sued for
a writ of habeas corpus , which was issued
and made returnable forthwith. Upon
the hearing of the evidence however , the
court decided not to interfere at once nnd
remanded the woman into custody. An
other effort will bo made to release her
her under the common law , which does
not recognize a prisoner's obligation
to n waiving of his rights. Mrs. Farrell is
quite pretty , a fact which naturally en
hances the interest in her case.

Market Basket.
A glance into the market basket this
week will disclose quite a chnngo. Ripe
fruits and matured vegetables nro taking
the place of the green fruits and veg
etables , which have been so plenty all
the spring nnd summer. The season has
arrived when the housekeeper thinks
not only of what may be required for the
day , but begins to lay plans for the time
when tbo markets will not bo supplied
with fresh fruits and vegetables. She
runs over in her mind u long list of pre
serves , pickles aud canned fruits which
will tickle the palate in winter time.
Just at the present time grapes
are vorv plenty and the
cheapest fruit in the market. Very line
home grown crapes can be had at ( JOc a

a peck , and crab apples at 3. > c. Michi
gan ponchos have put in n nppnarnnce

are a little scarce and high , being .sold at
30c per dozen , and plums at $3 per box.
Large ripe cucumbers , which are very
suggestive of sweet pickles , nro sold ut
25caUozon. The cold weather of the
past few days hits had a demoralizing
effect upon the tomato crop , and good
tomatoes are selling as hijrh as $3 per
bushel , while the small yellow csrg tomato
mate is going at 4o ( per peck.
Very largo and choice water
melons can bo had at 20@0a : !
and cantalopcs at 20@25a ouch. It is now
in order to renew the acquaintance of the
festive pumpkin pie , as pumpkins are on
the market at 20s nuieco. Small green
irutmog melons , intended for pickling
purposes , go at 25a per dozen , and green
poppers , also for pickles , at 2 < ) c a do/.en.

Jewelry News : The cnpncity of oui
watch factories cannot bo brought Into
full play , simply because by so elolng out
market would bo overstocked nnd com
petition would force prices ruinously
low. As the cnso stand at present , a num
ber of watch factories hnvo been called
into existence , for which there wns really
no need. The earlier nnd larger factories
wore fully able to meet the demand ; but
the Idea that manufacturing watches was
ono of the most profitable enterprises
tempted quite a number of capitalists to
tnko n hnnd iu the business , nnd in ninny
instances to their sorrow. Already the
evil consequences of overdoing the thing
shows it itself in the effort to make client )
watches , nnd before a great while wo
may see the innmifncturer of watches
reduced to the level of making cheap
Looking nt the matter from nnothor
standpoint , we will soon couio to the con
clusion that our wntch industry is only
in its Infancy. The present moment
Switzerland makes wntclics. in point of
number , far in excess of America , nnd
the watches made In Switzerland nre nil
exported , while the watches mndo in.
America nro principally for the homa
market. As there is no question of n
doubt that America can produce better
moderate priced watches than Switzer
land , and give more value for the money
expended , the question presents itself ,
why not scok foreign markets moro en
ergetically than we have done. Some ol
our older watch factories are doing nn
export business , but it seems as though it
is not done with that zeal and energy
which characterizes the Swiss export
trade. In ono particular the Swiss diffot
from us In their export trade : they stud.t
ho wants and purchasing capaoiti
of their foreign customers nnil
make goods to meet these. As fnl
as is known to the unintiatcd , our ruamu >
fiiotnrors have done those things to a
very limited extent. The wntt > r. coming
in contact some time ngo with tlm chain
man of the East , Indian Nnvigntion conv
pany , was told that this gentleman would
place a very largo continuous order , il
he could be supplied with watches which
were fair time-koepcrs in metal cases ul
$5 each. That sucn watches can bo pro
duced at n very fair profit , there is n
shadow of doubt , and we know whorcol
wo speak. AH wo would have to do
would bo to find out tlio wants anil fur
nish samples. Australia nnd Asia are
now nud will bo excellent mnrkcts , and-
by expedition nnd energy wo can secur
the bulk of the trade of theno. Thi
watch-wearing and purchasing capacity
of the globe is enormous nnd can be de
veloped in such n manner that wo may at
some future day wonder that wo did not
tap the mine sooner.
