Today. John M. .McDonald, ex-county coni^ missioner. and one of iiie oid settler.? of Allen county, is lying critically ill at liis home at SOI North Sycamore street. Mr. McTVinald has not been well for some time, but his c(H)dition last night and today is such as to alarm his friends and relatives. His eonditfOR is thought to be traceable to service in the army. tempted lo pursue tlie siip^cKtion of llie poxernor as tliey met his appro- ballon. The following ;s a copy of tiio letter received by .liidge Poust: ••.My D<ar .liidge: Jly i'xper'oiice as n <ivemor liau pn-atly ei!lari:ed my vision as to the prison prob|e;ii and prf-atly intensified my interest in it. It is a great iirolilein. I'erhaps the trend of clvlllzjtlon toward better tJiintss is nowhere more than II till' realms of peiiolo-^y. Students of criminology know that many men comictcd of crime are not bad men. ^t. heart, that many of them are victims of sudden i'>niptalioii. or gr.-'at provocal iiiii. of evil as.soe"ales. or the drink lialiit and of counliess otiier eoncomit.'inis of crime. Prison life m.iy confirm these men in crime or 't mav help to reform (hem and restore them to soci.^ty and relieve .he state of tlie burden of their case. K?- pecially is all Ihis true of young of- frndcrs. • In harmony witli these views Kan- .sas was oiic of the fir.-i Siai ••s (o <'s- tabli-b a ref.irmalory tin lM »r .l for the incarcoraiion of offenders between the age.s of ifi and 2."i ycirs.

Rut few stales iireced- ed Kansas In this pood .iioveuient and I believe even .'is yi.t only abonl half a do/.eii have joined in it. Th.> ex- periiiK-nt is ainiily vindieateil lu-re -iud elsewhere by the logic of results. ••Oiir reformatory. Iocaie<l at Hutchinson, has nearly as many of its vouiip men out on parol.' as are within its walls, and the record of their reformation is gi-atifying indeed. Only about S per <:enl violate their par- o'l- and are reiiirned to t-ie institution. This in.siituiion Tias reform ni.^tliods not possible p.Tlinps in a 'I'nitf-iitiary. siu-h. for instance, as a d:iy school, the need of whidi is ev!- d< need hv the fact that over ."0 per "lilt of Ihe inmates iiiiisi enter lb.-? fMst and second read<-rs. an alarming s.lowing, by till- w-ay. as lo the n-la- lidi of ignorance lo rrime. •'To keep ;he penil :iii i;iry brand oC men when po.-.sible is a matter ot trcn)<>ndoiis concern not only to ilieni. but also to the slate, fur It is a brand that won't rub out, and ii is •..isily more ilifflciili for an <-x pep'. i.-nMary <-unvlct than for an ex refi.r- Malory inmate to make uood. and ev i-ry one w hf» fails becomes a menace apain to society and a burden to the ••tate The law nn»ise;y. r think gives 'he trial judg.» discretion a.s to wli'-- •her these young offenders shall he "•ent to the n-forniaiory or to the penitentiary. 1 be'ieve they should all 4)e sent to the reformatory and trans- f>'rred from there .wTipn necessity demands.

Toncka, Kas., Oct. 21—"Abom the shorusi and most emphatic way that I can a.nswer .1. .M. Lowe, the presi- f eli-ciioii coniiiiis- sioneis of .lackson conniy. Mo., when he say.s that I "knoeked" on ihe ini- proveineiit of ihe .Mi.woiiri at the Mem phi.s convention. 1.=; ip say that he do--.- iiol ."^tale ihe iriilli." Till-; is the way in wliich Governor llocii this niorning replied lo the story printed In the .loiirnal yesterday In whieh Cominls.sioncr l>owe declared thai he was "loo mad lo see" because lloch said he had pledged the whoie Kansas dtiepation to the improvement of the .Mississippi to ilic exclusion of the Missouri, and because he understood lloch to say that Kansas w.i.s the only state in the convention untouched by a navigable stream. Mr. Lowe immediately camo to tJie defens<! of Atchison. Leavenworth and, City. Kans., and wanted to know why lloch had slighted them. ••I can't see what was the matter with Lowe" continued Governor lloch. "When Lowe says that I knocked on the Jfissouri and that Kansas in untouched by a naviga'.ile stream he does not tell the truth. 1 said jusi the op- jioslte. I am in favor of improving tho .Mis.s-onri and heartily .so. I think ihal iho wa yto improve the|)- pi is to begin on tho Missouri. Ixiwe may liave gotten some sort of a twisted impression when I replied to John Sharp William.s. Williams said that he ilidn'i pariicularly irit.^i tlic North: that the Souili had had some experiences. 1 pot afier wmiams a little on that score. I lold him that 1 didn't care wlieri- ilie work was begun, north soiiih. or in the middle. I rcrtle home With Ihe Kansas City deleaniion. Tliey invited iiie lo share llieir train with them. The majority of that delegation know that I favor the Mis.wuri's improvement from top lo bottom. 1 lia\e said so in the public prints since thai lime. I said so in my speech. ' "Concerning the niaitiT of Kausas and iiavipal}Ie streams I said (hlit: •Kansas sliori'S are not washed by ocean wiiv.-s. The stall- Ifi not traversed liv a single navigable slrearii." That is II nainly ii fact. I said that our stall' was ilii- nio.-.: Inland, Why Mr. l.^)we wished to distort (his Is cer- i;ilnly more than 1 can understand.^ I simply wani to put up the truth of this propo.Tiiion lo the other members of llie Kansas City deleiiailoii. f don't warn, a statement like Lowe's to go out nncombatied. 1 leave it to (In- rest of the members of tho Kansa.s City delegation, as to what 1 said and how 1 said it. l' wiil leave it to them if I have not again and again cxjiressed myse'f in favor of the improvement of the Missouri Rivor. To really get at the iruih of what I am for. 1 can say that 1 am just .-vactly for the oppo-* site of wha: .Mr XJOWS .says 1 am for ' assembled in St. Louis.
