Bishop Tihen of Lincoln, Maud Balling-

Prof. Charles R. Henderson, of the Uni
versity of Chicago, and J. T.- Oilmour,
warden of the government prison at
Toronto. Canada: discussed the problem
of the criminal before several thousand
persons gathered Sunday afternoon at
the mass meeting at the Auditorium of
th National Prison congress.
Warden Gilmour told of hla experiments
in placing rrisoners on a farm.

busied Itself In the past mainly with the
indeterminate sentence and parole." he
said. 'Now outdoor employment for de

Puts Prisoners on Farm.
"At the Central prison, Toronto, we
are experimenting with a farm of MO
acres. I have taken there between Ano
and 900 men and' I have failed with only
three out ' of 100. Probation and sun-
p&nded sentence haa failed with them, but
we are going to give them one more
chance to make good without bolts and
bars. Thre Isn't a bolt or a bar or a
gun on. the farm.
'I have asked them. the difference be
tween a prisoner In the city, and on the
farm and they all say It la "getting away
from that cell.
I don t believe a man can spend six
months In a prison cell and ever, be the
same man again. . It has a hardening
effect that Is Impossible to shake off.
"I don't like the word 'criminal.' The
majority of our prison population are not
criminal so much as they are a' product
of environment." . ,
Maud Balllngton Booth endeavored to
give her hearers an appreciation of th
view point of 'the prisoner while within
the prison walls and on th day of leav

few '"shou " at things as-they are; aome
of which were:

PAYING PENSIONS BY CHECKS
Proposed Change Will Expedite
Matters and Save Money.
ROLL IS DECREASING SLOWLY
Number of Name on It la Smallest
for Nineteen Yer Net Loss
for Year Nearly Thirty
WASHINGTON, Oct. US.-A sawing, es
timated at $1,000,000 annually to the pen
sioners of the United Slate and even
tually about J 180.000 a year to the gov
ernment, is contemplated by a simplified
plan tor the payment of pensions with
out vouchers which Commissioner of Pen'
Hens j. L Davenport submitted to the
secretary of the Interior, In his annual
report made public today.
During the yeer A7J.lfl0 was paid
as pensions, a decrease .of .tZ.Wmt from
last year.' making the total amount paid
in pensions since the foundation of the
government S4,230,3S1,730. There were M,
1S5 names : dropped from the ; roll and
16,200 added, leaving a net loss of 2S,
9R7 pensioners. The total number at
the end of the year was the small
est since 192, Methods of economy re
suited in a decrease of the cost of ad
ministration by $140,548, the amount be
ing $2,517,137, the lowest since 18S2.
Mill Mall Check Direct.
Commissioner Davnjort's plan, which
waa devised at the request of congress
and which will require the paseage of
a law, would greatly simplify the meth
ods of paying pensions, result In the
mailing of pension checks upon the date
which th pension falls due, eliminate
the cost to the pensioners in a large
majority of the cases, to the execution
of pension vouch era, which varies from
n to $3 yearly ; decrease to a considerable
extent the work In drawing and mail
ing of pension checks and eliminate -the
sending of 4,000,000 letters yearly through
the malls, saving about $30,000 thereby.
The plan contemplates payment direct
by checks mailed to the last address of
the pensioner. Besides the Indorsement
on the back of these checks the gov
ernment would require certification by
two witnesses aa to Identity. In a fow
Instances Commissioner Davenport said
vouchers still would be required.
Commissioner Davenport told of his ef
forts to ascertain the truthfulness ot
report from the press and elsewhere
that the pension roll waa honeycombed
with fraud. He sent field men from
pensioner to pensioner in the Washington
agency and Is now doing the same In
the KnoxvlUe agency, with a view to
probing frauds. Out of a total of 47,1-1
pensioners seen and questioned only
twenty-six cases of Improper pensioning
were revealed. The commissioner said he
thought the check system would put an
end to ny fraud that may now exist.

terday and today In a triple celebration.
James J. Hill, the railroad magnate,
through a gift of $wooo. made It possible
to complete an endowment of $250,000.
Yesterday Dr. H G. .Stub, prealdant.' of
the synod, presented this endowment fund'
to Prof. C. K. Preu. president of th
board of trustees of Luther college. While
this event brought shouts of hallelujah
from any hearts, while to others real
tears of Joy coursed down the cheek, it
did not surpass In tbrllllngna the semi
centennial Jubilee which la also being
celebrated on this occasion.
Sunday morning the Jubilee sermon was
preached by Dr. Preue and it was a great
anrraon in every respect. Through these
rifty years of life Luther college hsd
made a grand, struggle to do what it haa
done.. There had been very dark days
when It seemed thst hopes would be
crushed and th light would forever go
out, but today there wee not a cloud
in th sky and It was all Illumed with
hope and Joy.
Mate Is r veiled.
Th third event which waa so attractive
was the unveiling of the statu of Martin
Luther. It Is of heroic size and is an
exact replica : of the famous statu at
Worms, Germany'. It is mad of hollow
bronae, tand eleven feet, olear of
pedestal,, and weighs 4.700 pounds. Tbe
statue was completed in every part
twelve hours before the expiration of
the contract whlrh closed Friday. This
Is the second status of Martin Luther
of this kind In this country, the other
being in St- Louis.

address which I wa separate from the
Jubilee sermon waa delivered by Rt. Rev.
Prof. H. O. Stub, D. D , president of th
synod. President Emeritus, Laur Larson.
D. D., spoke very feelingly of th work
of the school. Dr. L. Hoktoen. president
of the alumni, wa among the list of
noted speakers. At the unveiling of the
statue It fell to Prof. John TMsager to
speak, and it waa a masterly address.
The program closed by th rendition of
the oratorlc "Messiah," and it waa a
fitting finale of the great occasion whloh
brought th multitude together It was
given by the Decorah Choral union under
