The American Prison congress lu
session here has assembled In Omaha
a great array of distinguished per
sonages and etperlenced workers in
the field of prison reform. Its meet
ings are bringing out the best
thought, and the most advanced
ideas on penal legislation and treat
ment of convicted criminals.
It Is natural, in discussing some
subjects, to paint in lurid colors the
shortcomings and evils of existing
practices and to emphasize the need
of Improvement. All this Is stimu
lating, and perhaps necessary, but
still we must not close our eyes to
the salient fact that marvelous prog
ress has already been made In the
matter of prison reform, and that
while much is yet to be accomplished,
at no time sine the dawn of history
have offenders against society ben
as ' humanely handled, and their
rights as human beings better re
spected, than in this day and age.
We now confine men in prison who
have committed crimes, but we do
not Incarcerate them.
We have Jails, workhouses and re
formatories, but we have no dun
geons, no black, holes and no torture
We at least try to discriminate be
tween first offenders who have
slipped up and chronic crooks who
make a profession of crime.
We distinguish the prisoner who
shows signs of reformation and give
him the advantage of indeterminate
sentence and parole, as against the
hardened, unpenitent desperado
whose release would be simply a new
license to prey upon his fellows.
True, we have not reached the
point where the ex-convict Just out
of prison doors Is welcomed as a
prodigal and at once restored to trust
and confidence, but the opportunities
for men who have expiated their
crime; to become honest, self-supporting
citizens were never greater.
We call attention to these things,
not to discourage those enlisted in
the cause of prison reform, but to
encourage them, by showing that
there is a bright side as well ss a
dark side. , T'ie world moves, and Is
moving, constantly toward better
A Nebraska Objeot Lesson.
Four men have been sentenced to
the penitentiary for life from Cherry
county, Nebraska, because they
lynched a man. This stands out
rather boldly against the background
of experience In such cases In other
states. It Is seldom that lynchers
are ever brought to a legal account
ing at all, much leas given the limit
of the law. Of course, Nebraska
happens to be one of the states in
which lynching rarely occurs and
such swift demonstration 'of speedy
Justice as this must have a tendency
to make lynehlngs all the more
scarce In this state.
What has takes place In the dis
trict court at Valentin furnishes an
object lesson which older states,
where lynehlngs have occurred.
would do well to heed. Of late sev
eral shocking examplea of organised
outlawry have been perpetrated and
that, too. with impunity In two or
three states. There is on way to
atop lynching and that Is to enforce
the law agalnat those who engag in
It. But more often the law shuts
its eyes to lynehlngs and lynchers for
fear it might detect the guilty ones.
It sometimes seems that a crime is
provocative of immediate reprisal
and retaliation, but lynching will be
come Justifiable only when two
wrongs make one right and not bo
fore. Besides, It hss happened that
mob law falls to apprehend the guilty
man and wreaks its vengeance upon
the guiltless. In which event, of
course, the crime and sin of lynching
becomes doubly heinous.
Receding Tide of Immigration.
Folks accustomed to fear leat our
country be overrun with the flood
tide of foreign immigration might
get comfort for themselves by re
viewing recent statistics on this alien
influx. Th tide, as a matter of fact,
has been on th recession for some
little time. Not only hag th Influx
from Europe been decreasing, bat
th efflux has been swelling, so that
the com par a tire decrease is all the
more. In July of this year, for ln
stenos, 61,716 aliens csme to the
United States. as compared with
Sx.m In July' of 1910. For the
seven months of 1911 ending with
July, th total Influx was 662.647 as
sgalnst 776.286 In th asm period
or lsio and ssj.718 In 1907. The
outgo of aliens for the aevea months
ending with July, 1911. was more
than 800,000, as compared with 223
622 In 1910 and 171,420 In 1909.

tion situation may b studied with

Moat people are apt to take a too

Ajax Defying the lightning;.
Base ball is inherently the great
est sport ever devised, ao far as the
American's fascination goes. Noth
ing in the history of professional
athletics In this or any other country
has ever approached the popularity
base ball has attained. And year by
year that popularity increases. The
game is intrenched today, therefore,
In the hearts of Americans with
what seems like abiding power. It
has grown Into a gigantic business,
at the aame time retainng all Its
original sport elements.
But strong as base ball is, It is not
strong enough to lower its commer
cial aspect to the level of greedy
speculation or graft It has survived
and prospered, not because It was
strong enough to prevent these evils,
but because it was too clean to coun
tenance them. Let it down on the
basis of gambling and it will go Just
as horse racing and other splendid
forms of American sport have gone.
It Is highly Important that the
authorities of base , ball go to the
bottom of this ticket-scalping scandal
now being aired in New York and
make an example of those responsible
for it Unfortunately the owners of
the New York team are charged with
being In the conspiracy to dole out
tickets through brokers at fabulous
prices. At any rate, it Is said, 8.000
tickets hsve been thus doled out A
similar scandal arose In Chicago dur
ing a world's series snd nothing ever
came of it Base ball cannot afford
to harbor auch grafts. Base ball

OMAHA. Oct. 17. To th Editor of The
Be: Last Saturday's Bee contained
statement relative to the organisation of
the Citizen's union, attributing Us crea
the Business Men's association and to me,
tlon in part to the BuBlnes Men's asso
ciation and tn rrt to myself.
In so far as the publication relates to
th Business Men's association and to roe,
it is entirely without foundation. I never
heard of the proposed new organization,
or the Citizen's union, or any organiza
tion of that nature until I read the state
ment ln The Bee. Neither is It in any
way connected with the Omaha Business
Men's association. The Business Men's
asaoolayon devotes itself entirely to a
certain industrial problem. It labors to
advance the principle of the open shop,
an Industrial program under which em
ployment shall not be denied to any
workman because he is or Is not a mem
ber of a labor organization. During the
eight years of its existence the Business
Men's association baa not touched politics,
either local or tn general, and tt la not
touching politic at th present time.
In making correction of a false report, 1
do not mean to cast aspersion upon the
Citizen's union. , It platform, aa pub
lished, seems to be one to which good
citizens can very ' readily ' subscribe.
Whether It will be able to accomplish the
meritorious ends at which it alms will
depend upon the extent to which good
citizens may support It If It la entitled
to support it wtll be because of Its own
program, but another organisation, occu
pying a very different field of action, and
having no .relation to. It ought not be
