ALGONA rnWA. WTSDOTSPAY. NOVEMBER 10. 1997. 8EHMON. & NOW UNDER OUR GREAT CITIES. from th« T**t: ''th« Boflr Ont of this Wood Uotli tTastc It, and the tirilit tiioa** tit the Fi<>l«t both Devon* ft"—PinlBM «O : 13. Y this homely but expressive figure, David sets forth the bad i n- flncnces which in olden time broke in upon God's herl- t a g e, as with swine's foot trampling, and as with swine's snout uprooting the vineyards of prosperity. What was truo then is true now. There have been enough trees ot righteousness planted to overshadow tho whole earth, had it not. been for the £i\e-men who hewed Ihsm .down. The temple of truth- would long ago have bec-n completed, had it not been for Mie iconoclasts who defaced the wails and battered down the pillar?. Thn whole earth would have been all Eschol 01' ripened clusters, had it not jboen thai, "the bonr has wasted it and 'the wild beast of the field devoured It." f propose to point out to you those whom I consider to be the destructive 'clasr.es of society. First, the public crim'rals. You ought not to be surprised that these people make up a largo 'proportion of many communities. In 3SCO, of the forty-nine thousand people who were incarcerated in the prisons of the country, thirty-two thousand were of foreign birth. Many of them were the very desperadoes of society, oozing into the slums of our cities, waiting for an opportunity to riot and .steal and debauch, joining the la:v,e -gang of American thugs and cutthroats. There are in our cities, people whose entire business in life is to commit crime. That is as much their business as jurisprudence or medicine or merchandise is your business. To It tbey bring all their energies of body, mind and soul, and they look upon the Interregnums which they spend in 'prif.or. as so much unfortunate loss of time, just as you look upon an attack of influenza or rheumatism which fastens you in the house for a few days. It is their lifetime business to pick pockets, and blow up safes, and shoplift, and ply the panel game, and they have as much pride of skill in their business as you have in yours when you upset the argument of an opposing counsel, or cure a gun-shot fracture which other surgeons have given up, or foresee a turn in the market so you buy goods just before they go up twenty per cent. It is their business to commit crime, and I do not suppose that once in a year the thought of the immorality strikes them. Added to these professional criminals. American and foreign, there is a large class of men who are more or less industrious in crime. Drunkenness is responsible for much of the theft, since it confuses a man's Ideas of property, and lie gets his hands on things that do not belong to him. Rum is responsible foi much of the assault and battery, inspiring men to sudden bravery, jwhich they must demonstrate, though it be on the face of the next gentleman. •I'hey are harder in heart and more infuriate when they come out of jail than when they went in. Many of the people who go to prison go again and again and again. Some years ago, of fifteen hundred prisoners who, during the year had been in Sing Sing, four hundred had been there before. In a hcusfi of correction in the country, where during a certain reach of time there bad been five thousand people, •more than three thousand had been there before. So, in one case the pris- yn, and in the other case the house of correction, left them just as bad as they were before. The secretary of one of the benevolent societies of New York saw a lad fifteen years of age who had spent three years of his lite in prison, and he said to the lad, "What have they done for you to make you better?" "Well," replied the lad, "the first time I was brought up before tho judge he said, "Yi.-u ought to be ashamed of yourself.' And then I committed a crime again, and I was brought up before the same judge, and he said, 'You rascal!' And after a while I committed some other crime, und I was brought before the same judge, and he said, 'You ought to be hanged.'" That is all they had done for him in the way of reformation and salvation. "Oh," you say, "these people are incorrigible." I suppose there are hundreds of persons this day lying In the prison bunks who would leap qp at the prospect of reformation, il society would only allow them a way into decency and respectability. "Oh,' you say, "I nave no patience with these fogues." I ask you in reply, how much better would you have been under the same circumstances? Suppose your mother bad been a blasphemer and fOUi' father a sot, and you had started life with a body stuffed with evil pro- sllvltles, and you had spent much of your time in a cellar amid obscenities and cursing, and If at ten years of age yoi had beea compelled to go out ant Steal, battered and banged at night II you came in without any spoils; ant suppose your early manhood anc wqmanboocj had been covered with rag,) a,n4 fljth. and decent society had its fe&ck upon you and Jeft you with vagabonds and wbarf- r§ts-*-how much, better would you have bepn? I nave no sympathy with thai executive clemency which would let run loose, or which would Bit in gallery of a court-room weeping Bowe h,ar<l'Uearte4 wretcn is to justice; but I do w thai g&4 JJ& o* the community more potential influences iu ttypt <lKw»*W»« of one of our great cities, and the air was like that of the Black Hole of Calcutta. As the air swept through the wicket it almost knocked me down. No sunlight. Young inen who had committed their first crime crowded in among old offenders. I saw there one •woman, with a child almost blind, who had been arrested for the crime of poverty, who was waiting until the slow law could take her to the almshouse. where she rightfully belonged; but she was thrust in there with her hild, amid the most abandoned wretches of the town. Many of the offenders in that prison sleeping on the floor, with nothing but a vermin- covered blanket over them. Those people, crowded, and wan, and wasted, and half-suffocated, and infuriated. I said to the men, "How do you stand it liere?" "God know?," said one man: "wo have to stand it." Oh, they will pay you when they get out! Where ;he;-- burned down ono house, they will bum three. They will strike deeper the assassin's knife. They are this minute plotting worse burglaries. Many of the jails are the best places I know of to manufacture footpads, vagabonds and cut-throats. Yale College is not so well calculated to make scholars, nor Harvard so well calculated to make scientists, nor Princeton so well calculated to make theolo- fins, as the American jail is calculated to make criminals. All that these men do not know of crime after they liavo been in that style of dungeon for somo time, satanic machination cannot teach them. Every hour these jails stand, they challenge the Lord Almighty to smite the cities. I call upon thf people to rise in their wrath and demand a reformation. I call upon the judges of our courts to expose the infamy. I demand, in behalf of those in carcerated prisoners, fresh air .and clear sunlight, and, in the name of him who had not where to lay his head, a couch to rest on at night. In the insufferable stench and sickening surroundings of some of the prisons, there is nothing but disease for the body, idiocy for the mind, and death to the soul. Stifled air and darkness and vermin never turned a thief into an'hon- est man. We want men like John Howard and Sir William Blackstone, and women like Elizabeth Fry, to do for th<- prisons of tho United States what those people did in other days for the prisons of England. I thank God for what Isaac T. Hopper and Doctor Wines and Mr. Harris and scores of others have done in the way of prison reform; but we want something more radical before upon our cities will come tho blessing of him who said: "I was in prison and yc came unto me." In this class of uprooting and devouring population and untrustworthy officials, "Woo unto thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes drink in the morning!' It is a great calamity to a city when bad men get into public authority. "Why was it that in New York there was such unparalleled crime between 1866 and 1871? It was because the judges of police in that city, for the most part, were as corrupt as the vagabonds that came before them for trial. These were the days of high carnival for election frauds, assassination and forgery. We had the "Whisky Ring," and the "Tammany Ring," and the "Erie Ring." There was one man during those years that got one hundred and twenty-eight thousand dollars in one year for serving the public. In a. few years it was estimated that there were fifty millions of public treasure squandered. In those times the criminal had only to wink at the judge, or his lawyer would wink for him,.and Ihe question was decided for the defendant. Of the eight thousand people arrested in that city in one year, only three thousand were punished. These little matters were "fixed up," while the interests of society were "fixed down." You know as well as I that a criminal who escapes only opens the door of other criminalities. It is no compliment to public authority when we have in all the cities of the country, walking abroad, men and women notorious for criminality, unwhippod of justice. They are pointed out to you in the street by day. There you find what are called tho "fences," the men who stand between the thief and the honest man, sheltering the thief, and at great price handing over the goods to the owner to whom they belong. There you will find those who are called tho "skinners," the men who hover around Wall street and State street and Third street with great sleight of hand in bonds and stocks. There you find the funeral thieves, the people wjjo go and sit down and mourn with families und pick their pockets. And there you find the "confidence men," who borrow money of you because they have a dead child in the house, and want to bury it, when they never had a house •nor a family, or they want to go to England and get a large property there and they want you to pay their way, and they will send the money back by the very, next mull. There are the "harbor thieves," the "shoplifters," the "pickpockets," famous all over the cities. Hundreds of them with their faces in the "Rogues gallery," yet doing nothing for the last five or ten years but defraud society and escape justice. When these people go unar- rested and unpunished, it is putting a high premium upon vice, and saying to the young criminals of this country, "What a safe thing it is to be a great criminal." Let the law swoop upon them! Let it be known in this country that 'dime will have no'Quarter, that the detectives are after it, that the police club Is being brandished, that the iron door of tho prison is be- iug opened, that the Judge is ready to call the case! Top great leniency to criminals is too great severity to society. * * * jn thene American cities, whose cry of want I interpret, there are hundreds and thousands of honest poor wbp are 4eneajent U.DOJJI Jn,4iYJ14w!< filly state charities. If all their voices cotild come up at once, it would be a groan that would shake the foundations of the city, and bring all earth and heaven to the rescue. But for the most part it suffers unexpressed. It sits in silence, gnashing its teeth and sucking the blood of its own arteries, walj^ng for the judgment day. Oh, I should not wonder if on that day it would be found out that some of us had some things that belonged to them; some extra garment which might have made them comfortable on cold days; some bread thrust into the ash barrel that might have appeased their hunger "for a little while; some wasted candle or gas jet that might have kindled up their darkness; some fresco on the celling that would have given them a roof; some jewel which, brought to that orphan girl in time, might have kept her from being crowded off the precipices of an unclean life; some New Testament that would have told them of him who "came to seek and to save that which was lost!" Oh, this wave of vagrancy and hunger and nakedness that dashes against our front doorstep, I wonder if you hear it and see it as much as I hear and see it! I have been almost frenzied with the perpetual cry for help from all classes and from all nations, knocking, knocking, ringing, ringing. If the roofs of all the houses of. destitution could be lifted so we could look down into them just as God looks, whose nerves would be strong enough to stand it? And yet there they are. The sewing women, some of them in hunger and cold, working night after night, until sometimes the blood spurts from nostril and lip. How well their grief was voiced by that despairing woman who stood by her invalid husband and invalid child, and said to the city missionary, "I am downhearted. Everything's against us; t and then there are other things." "What other things?" said the city missionary. "Oh," she replied, "my sin." "What do you mean by that?" "Well," she said, "I never hear or see anything good. It's work from Monday morning to Saturday night, and then when Sunday comes I can't go out, and I walk the door, and it makes me tremble to think that I have got to meet God. Oh, sir, it's so hard for us. We have to work so, and then we have so much trouble, and then we are getting along so poorly, and see this wee little thing growing weaker and weaker; and then to think we are getting no nearer to God, but floating away from him—oh, sir, I do wish I was ready to die!" I should not wonder if they had a good deal better time than we, in the future, to make up for the fact that they had such a bad time here. It would be just like Jesus to say, "Come up and take the highest seats. You suffered with mo on earth;- now be glorified with me in heaven." O thou weeping One of Bethany! O thon dying One of the cross! Have mercy on the starving, freezing, homeless poor of these great citiqs." I want you to know who are the uprooting classes of society. I want you to be more discriminating in your charities. I want your hearts open with generosity, and your hands open with charity. 1 want you to be made the sworn friends of all city evangeli- sation, and all newsboys' lodging houses, and all children's aid societies. .Aye, I want you to send the Dorcas society all the cast-off clothing, that, under the skillful manipulation of the wives and mothers and sisters and daughters, these garments may be fitted on the cold, bare feet, and on the shivering limbs of the destitute. I should not wonder if that hat that yon give should come back a jeweled coronet, or that garment that you this week hand out from your wardrobe should mysteriously be whitened and somehow wrought into the Savior's own robe, so In the last day he should run his hand over it and say, "I was naked and ye clothed me." That would be putting your garments to glorious uses. I want you to appreciate how, very kindly God has dealt with you In your comfortable homes, at your well-filled tables, and at the warm registers, and to have you look at the round faces of your children, and then, at the review of God's goodness to you, go to your room, and lock the door, and kneel down and say, "O Lord, I have been an ingrate; make me thy child, 0 Lord, there are BO many hungry and unclad and unsheltered today, I thank Thee that all my life thou has taken such good care of mo. O Lord, there are so many sick and crippled children today, I thank Thee mine are well, some of them on earth, some of them in heaven. Thy goodness, O Lord, breaks me down. Take me once and forever. Sprinkled as I was many years ago at the altar, while my mother held me, now I consecrate my soul to Thee in a holier baptism of repenting tears. " 'For sinners, Lord, thou cam'st to bleed. And I'm a sinner vile indeed; Lord, I believe Thy grace is free; O magnify that grace in me!'" NOTES OP THE WHEEL.

Goodwin will appear as Merchant of Venice" Charles Coghlan Is said to bo search 1 TARBUCK'S great victory over Jimmy Michael at the Willow Grove track, Philadelphia, was the greatest surprise of the season in racing circles. It was a clear-cut win and gives the Quaker every right to throw out his chest in exultation. No other man in this country had been able to lead the little wonder over the tape in the middle distance contest, and the wail has been, "Why hasn't America got a man that can beat this little chap?" Alter having been defeated in a number of matches with the Welsh wonder, it was not surprising that Starbuck had few supporters in his last and most notable twenty-five mile race. But in his favor be it said he always had the bulk ot the bad luck in the previous battles, the pace being unworthy of the name, or the machine breaking or something equally disastrous happening. But the time he was the victor the other fellow had an equal share of the mishaps, and all this talk that Michael was the greatest sufferer in this respect is all •nonsense. It is true that Michael would have done better, reckoning in the accidents, had his men been able to carry him fader, or had he been fortified with a larger number than his overconfident manager secured for him. This man, flushed with the record of an unbroken string of victories, did not consider it necessary to have reserve machines or the full complement of pacemakers, and the result was, as it .usually Is in such cases, bitter defeat. Not only was the great little rider terribly put out by his loss, but Manager Shafer was more so, if anything. It has been rumored since the contest that Shafer lost a lot of money when ;his star failed to get home in front of the Philadelphia!!. The unbounded joy of the spectators when Starbuck lauded a winner was manifested in a variety of ways. Mrs. Starbuck, the rider's wife, had to cry, while a Quaker City citizen who hardly knew the crackajack by sight, calmly threw his hat into the air and then took off his cuffs and tossed them over the track. Another man threw his hat away, while another, filled to the brim with rapture, swung his bicycle twenty feet in the infield, and said he did not care if it broke all to pieces. Meanwhile it seemed as if everybody was trying to cheer louder than his neighbor. Starbuck was the least concerned of the lot and took his triumph like a true sportsman. It would not be surprising if Starbuck and Michael were to meet again this year, and in Madison Square Garden. There has been talk of having the ride a twenty-five mile race on the night preceding the opening of tlie annual six-day contest. Otherwise it is not likely that they will be seen together again until next season. Tlurut May K«tlro. Huret, the famous French rider, says tie will not try to regain the twenty- four hour record which Cordang took away from him until next season. He believes he can succeed, too, for he regards it only as a question of pace and not of the man. Ho hopes to have the aid of an electric pacing machine the next time he makes a record trial, in which case he confidently believes he can top Cordang's wonderful performance as handily as the Dutch phenomenon buried his (Huret's) record. He has shown wonderful form, and Is beyond question a racing star of the first magnitude. He is younger, too, than many of the circuit, men, and has by no means reached the pinnacle of his fame as a cyclist of speed. He' ^_ ought to do even better next year, and ing for an engagement.

Cliarlle Krt/.'s Kceorrt. • No amateur in the metropolitan district, with the possible exception of Irwin A. Powell, the Columbia college champion, has won more important victories this season than Charles M. Ertz of the Riverside Wheelman. Last season he did no racing to speak of and his work this year is doubly meritorious, because he has attended regularly to his duties as a salesman, devoting spare hours to racing. During the week of the national meet at Philadelphia he had a vacation, but instead of taking his ease he trained hard for the national championships with the result that he defeated all of the best amateurs of the country in the one-mile national championship. The cracks of the entire country put forth every effort to capture this important race and its coveted title, and in order to win Ertz was forced to ride in better form that he had ever before displayed. Ertz is about 23 years of age and has been racing in this vicinity more or less during the last five years. Two seasons ago he was one of the most frequent winners of the Riverside racing team. In races on the road he was generally an im- London !s going to have plenty of ' American shows this year.

BALD. .ne head of the column as the undisputed champion of the year. He has won more open races than any of his formidable rivals, sticking to his work day in and day out, something which not all the stai'3 have done this year. The course of Earl Kiser, who has been Bald's hardest proposition on the track this season, has been meteoric and spasmodic. His manager, Tom Belt, • knows how to bottle up a man for a great race, and that has been the plan of the "Dayton Dumpling's" campaign. Perhaps this may account in n measure for Kiser's wins over Bald, who, having competed day in and 'day out, was often far from being in that ripe condition to which Eck had nurtured lyiser. Probably no man's victories •this year have beea as,sensa- as those of the Dayton crack. Extension of the Circuit. The extension of the national circuit; beyond the customary period has raised a storm of criticism. The stars of the circuit want to stop at the usual time and enjoy the winter in the rest they have well earned; yet, in the fear that some rival may stick to the circuit, make a better showing for the year, based on wins and number of starts, they protest and continue to ride. The standing of the cracks is reckoned after the manner in which baseball teams] are rated in the National League, by, "Percentage, Prize and Points Table" Spooner. Mr. Spooner is not an officer of the L. A. W., and his table might not carry any more weight than one kept by any other man, were it not for the fact that he has done his work well, advertised it and interested the riders in it sufficiently to imhice them to stick to the circuit as much as possible. Now it is this table that is worrying a number of the stars who desire to stop racing for the season. They have proved their right to stand in the front row of notable men of speed.yet if they, leave the circuit for a sufficient length of time second raters may come along and through luck and occasional merit win enough races to place them in their midst in the table, or possibly to pass them. And then the second rater would probably lose no time in proclaiming the fact that ho was a better man, on the showing for the season,' than Eddie Bald or Gardiner or Cooper- or Mertens, or any of the men who strive hard for the titlo of champion of the year. A remedy in such a case would seem to lie- in the hands of tho racing board, which might establish a' table of its own (an official table), and designate the beginning and ending of' the official racing season. Such a- course would prevent such a situation, as exists at present, and, besides, the crowning of a champion at the hands of the League's Racing Board would lend to the title even greater luster than it now possesses. The extension of the national circuit through tho southern states, from Florida to Mexico, will add two months to the regular season, the period in which the flyers usually rest after the summer campaign, which is enough to wear out almost any racing man.
