The modern plague which nearest

crime in all our cities. It halts not for

It bruises and cuts and strikes down

body and soul this plague of crime,
rampant for ages, and never bolder or
more rampant than now.
HOKROnS OF THE POLICE COUKTS.
The annual police reports of these
cities as I examine them are to me more
suggestive than Dante's Inferno, and
Tax List Takers and Assessors of I'ro- all Christian people as well as reform
ers need to awaken to a present and
tremendous duty. If you want tins
"Plague of Crime" to stop there are
several kinds of persons you need to
consider. First, the public criminals.
You ought not to ' bo surprised that
these people make up a large portion
in many communities. The vast ma
jority of the criminals who take ship
from Europe come into our own port.
In 1869, of the forty-nine thousand peo-
Itnlv is playing a biir game of
bluff. She demanded that the Pres
ident should give assurance that the
leaders of the New Orleans lynchers
should be punished. The President
refused to do so, simply because it
was beyond his power to do so,
whereupon the Italian Minister,
Baron Fava is ordered from Wash
ington by the King. The Italians
will believe the American? are a
hard people to scare.
you an opportunity to repent ; we mean
to help you. Here ro Bibles and
tracts and Christian influences. Christ

Vast improvements have been made
by introducing industries into the pris
on, but we wsint something more than
hammers and shoe lasts to reclaim these
people. Aye, wo want more tluui ser
mons on the Sabbath day. Society
must impress these men with the fact
that it does not enjoy their suffering,
and that it is attempting to reform and
elevate them. The majority of crim
inals suppose that society has a grudge
Ugainst them, and they in turn have a
grudge against society.
T'hey are liarder in heart and more
infiixiate when they come out of jail
than when they went in. Many of the
people who go to prison go again and
again. ' Some years ago, of fifteen hun
dred prisoners who during the year had
been in Sing Sing four hundred had
been there before. In a house of cor
rection in the country, where during a
certain reach of time there had been
five thousand people, more than three
thousand had been there before. So,
in one case the prison and in the other
case the house of correction left them
just as bad as they were before.
The secretary of one of the. benevo
lent societies of New York says a lad
of fifteen years of age had spent throe
years of his life in prison, and he said
to the lad, "What have they done for
you to make you better?" "Well," re
plied the lad, "the first tune I was
