HILL DESCRIBES CAUSEOF RIOTS (Cont!nn«4 From Page 1). present generation flares up on small provocation. * * * fWERCROWDING has-a deal to Vy do with prison discontent. ' It has been mentioned as a factor in all the recent outbreaks. Illinois prisons are filled to about twice their originally-intended capacities, "compel!Ing.the quartering of the men two to a cell at least. Unduly close contact between human beings is trying under the most favorable conditions, as anyone knows who has tried it in an dverly: full hotel for only a night or two. Enforced, as in a prison, perhaps for a long term of years, it becomes almost-intolerable. Especially Is this the case with a convict of the higher type, decent upbringing and cleanly habits^ who happens to be bunked with some foul thug, bestial in his every instinct. · ' ' * * * T AKING.. tnto consideration the twin facts that more men are being- committed to penitentiaries than ever before, and that they are not being released nearly as rapidly, the over-crowding evil is easy to account for. , . - . . ' . ' It may not be, of course, that too many new crimes have been created, but there can be no question that new ones HAVE been created. In turn, 'they appear to have caused'an increase in the older forms- of criminality. Illustratively, during the recent legislative Investigation in Joliet; 1 James Pelrie, one WASHINGTON, ilarch 28.

Igqe, ""another 1 case of an inmate who is here solely because of prohibition."- , · . - At any rate, in one way arid another, it is notorious:that crime is heavily on" the increase, .with such resulting alarm on the part of the law-abiding population' that .penalties have been made much severer; in the hope of checking it-^atlll fur : ther stuffing the prisons. * * * 'THE STUFFING is done, too, with I the sort of material already referred to --intrinsically pretty decent, if adventurous young men who do not consider themselves in any proper sense criminals 'and will not stand being handled, as if they were. Prison authorities, on the other hand (naturally in the main a low tPlass, for the' work ia not calculated to attract any ofher), stick as closely as they can to old methods. Much emphasis was laid, for example, during the Joliet Investigation, upon the case of Joseph Coakley, a convict who, for throwing food at a fellow prisoner in the penitentiary mess room, was handcuffed to the bars in a solitary cell, collapsed thus and was deaci when the doctor "arrived. It was explained, to be sure, that he was suffering from heart disease, unknown to the authorities, or he would not have died so easily. But what of it?--^asks the Insurrectionary younger element among the convicts. Ought any man to be subjected to physical torture which only a vigorous one can endure without killing him ? The youngsters think not, and the general verdict is that the Coakley incident had its considerable part in causing the subsequent riot. . pOMPLAINTS of the working ot »-· the Indeterminate sentence and parole regulations were made rather by Father Ellgius S. WeSr, the prison chaplain, and by ex-Chaplain George L. Whitmeyer, than by any of the convicts who testified at th« investigation. Those regulations undoubtedly do retard the release of prisoners, and In this way contribute ;to overcrowding, but personally I question, judging from my own inquiries, whether they have much to do, except perhaps indirectly, . toward provoking actual convict outbreaks. The outbreaks seem to me to result rather from the continual chafing of discomfort, interspersed with occasional acts of brutality like the-Coaktey affair, than from the more abstract operation of the men's various terms of confinement. · Father Weiri indeed, did not dwell so strongly upon parole injustices as responsible for prison disorders; he did give it as hia opinion that delay frequently lessens the chances of a convict's reformation. * * * W ARDEN HENRY C.
