Newsies Celebrate President Pete Murphy’s Birthday With Drive Through City.


Young Incendiaries Sharply Dealt With by Judge Lanctot – Stiff Fine for Gamblers.

Yesterday was the fifty-seventh birthday of Pete Murphy, Montreal’s veteran newsboy, who has been selling papers in this city for over half a century, having commenced to sell copies of The Gazette in St. James street when he was six years of age. The Montreal Newsboys Protective Association, of which ‘Pete’ is president, celebrated the veteran’s birthday in a becoming manner. They enjoyed a drive around the city last night in two big busses, each drawn by four horses, with the president perched high on the front seat of the leading ‘bus, wearing his silk hat and the cane Sir Wilfred Laurier brought him from Ireland. The sides of the ‘busses were bulging out like watermelons with their loads of boisterous youngsters, each of whom carried a horn and tooted from the time the drive started early in the evening until the end came shortly before midnight. The newspaper offices were visited, and each was cheered in turn, but when The Gazette Office was reached at 11 o’clock, President Murphy made a speech, in the course of which he told the youngsters of having sold The Gazette in St. James street, 51 years ago, when the largest building on the thoroughfare was the Ottawa Hotel, which still stands on the south side of the street just east of McGill. At The Gazette building the veteran presented a bouquet to the editor.

The existence of a gang of juvenile incendiaries in the neighborhood of Point St. Charles around the Grand Trunk yards was the subject of severe comment by Judge Lanctot yesterday when hearing proceedings against three youths named John Collins, James Mailloy and Raymond Banford, charged with having set fire to piles of lumber, the property of Shearer, Brown & Wills, on the 22nd and 25th of May. Two other youth youths, Thos. Mitchell and John Currie, who are in the reformatory awaiting sentence on a similar charge, were brought out to give evidence against their supposed allies. Their testimony did not incriminate the trio, but rather showed that although Collins, Malloy and Banford had been present when the firing arrangements were made, they withdrew from the actual participation. The chief testimony against the lads was that of William Betts, of the Betts Detective Agency, who alleged certain admissions by the boys, but Mr. R. O. McMurtry, for the defence, argued that the boys had not been duly warned before making any statement.

Bail was refused when asked for in Banford’s case, the Judge ordering that the boys be sent to the reformatory until Tuesday next, on which date the two lads, Mitcchell and Currie, will come up for sentence. It was, said Judge Lanctot, a serious case, and the boys knew perfectly well what they were doing.

Respect to the court must be not only in attitude but in garb; so ruled Mr. Recorder Weir yesterday when two men, J. Bunnin and K. Lucas, were charged with violating traffic laws. The men appeared clad in blue overalls and with their hatbands well garnished with cigarette specimens of art. Ascertaining that these men had been out on bail, and that, therefore, they had chosen to appear in this way, the Recorder remanded the case for a day and informed them that they must reappear decently dressed. A friendly constable came to their aid, however, and in a few minutes they stepped into the court in normal coats and paid their small fine on the spot.

While hackmen must be over 18 years of age, a carter, said Mr. Recorder Weir yesterday, is not affected by this by-law. The result is that boys between ten and fifteen years drive vehicles through the city, and recently, added the Recorder, there had been brought before him quite a number of youths charged with infractions of traffic by-laws. Such boys not only were dangerous to citizens through their inexperience, but were in a school which was improper for a boy, as many carters were not fit associates for youth lads.

Forty dollars and costs was the sentence of Judge Choquet upon the two men, Omer Dufresne and Damase Daigneault, who pleaded guilty in the Court of Sessions yesterday to a charge of keeping a common gambling house on East Notre Dame street, opposite Dominion Park. At first the men had pleaded not guilty in the lower court, but when they appeared before Judge Lanctot yesterday they changed their minds and revised their plea. Thereupon they were sent up to the Court of Sessions for sentence with the result mentioned.

Eli Aubin, alias Eli Robillard, who was arrested in Ottawa last Saturday on charge of carrying a concealed weapons, is wanted here to answer to charges of burglary and forgery. Aubin is only 21 years of age, but Detective-Sergeant Charpentier, who went up to Ottawa to bring him back here, said yesterday he was one of the most daring young fellows the police have had to deal with. Four years ago he was sentenced to five years in the penitentiary for burglary, but after having served a couple of years was allowed out on ticket-of-leave.

“Wild Chase Catches 3 Mimico Fugitives,” Toronto Telegram. June 30, 1934. Page 01 & 2.

Two Men Still at Large Suspected of Burglary And Hold-up at Elmira

Trail of Depredations Marks Flight of Prisoners – Guns Wielded at Filling Station

With three of the five in custody, provincial and county police of all Western Ontario are combining in the man hunt for the remaining fugitives from Mimico Reformatory, with the search now centred around Upper Wellington and Bruce Counties.

The five escaped from the Ontario Brick and Tile Plant late yesterday afternoon by a unique ruse. It is believed that four of them hid in a dump cart, under a load of tin cans, light refuse and other rubbish while the fifth prisoner drove the dump cart safely past the picket lines and out of the reformatory grounds. When safely away from the plant they abandoned the cart, stole a car in Islington and drove west.

Depredations of the five young gangsters since their escape are said to include one armed hold-up, one burglary, at least three car thefts and an attempt to wreck a police car.

The chase has led from Islington to Guelph then Galt, where one was caught, back on the road to Guelph, two more of the fugitives being caught on foot midway between the two cities, and through Kitchener to Elmira and Alma, where the two remaining at liberty were last seen heading toward Drayton.

Caught in the police net are: Lawrence Burns, 21, of Windsor, Bill Tracy an Bill Taras. Still at large are Frank Gedura, 27, and Alfred Ertle, aged 28.

The two men still at large are believe by police to be the pair who committed a burglary and an armed hold-up in the Elmira district early this morning, getting cash, gasoline, a revolver, cigarettes and chocolate bars.

Mr. and Mrs. John Meyers, operators of a service station three miles above Elmira, were wakened by two men at 3.10 this morning, asked for gasoline, and were then held up by the pair, both of whom had revolvers. The proprietor was forced to fill the bandit car with seven gallons of gasoline by one of the men, while the other snipped the telephone wires, stole $6 in cash and filled his pockets with candy and cigarettes.

‘Don’t you call anyone, or we’ll come back and get you,’ the bandits told the couple as they disappeared northward toward Drayton in their stolen car, which, a police check showed, displayed different license markers from those stolen with the car.

Before the hold-up near Alma, the hatchery owned by Albert Seiling, in Elmira, had been broken into, via a rear window, and $7 stolen after the men smashed into a desk. A revolver and some other small articles were also taken.

One capture was made at Galt, after police had chased the fugitives at 75 miles per hour across the city until they wrecked the car on Joseph Street, narrowly escaping with their lives in snapping off a telegraph pole.

The two men caught outside Galt were on foot, travelling along the C.P.R. tracks southwest of the city, when seen and apprehended by  a party of Galt, Guelph County and Provincial police. They gave their names as Bill Tracy and Bill Terrance.

From the story of the flight as told to Galt police by Lawrence Burns, 21, of Windsor, the first recaptured, all the party of five stayed together on foot until they sole a car at Islington. They traveled to Guelph, where they abandoned the Islington car in favor of a roadster.

The Guelph car was reported stolen at 11.55pm and Galt police were on the look-out. Sergt. Frank Cronin and P.C. Joe Byrne sighted the fugitives going past Galt and chased them into the city. Both fugitive and police cars traversed the city at a 75-mile per hour pace until the roadster slewed over the curb, smashed a pole and was wrecked in a vacant lot. The police caught Burns, but the other four men got away over the coal pile in Sutton’s coal yard nearby.

The smash in Galt was caused when the fugitives tried to swing their stolen auto in the side of the police car as the police pulled alongside, the driver of the police car avoiding the smash and letting the stolen car leap the curb when its driver was unable to stop.

Two of the four who fled from the wrecked car stole another auto, belonging to Oliver Chudney, of Hespeler, and made their further escape in it.

The escape from the reformatory was spectacular in its simplicity.

Lawrence Burns, a trusty, acted as driver of the wagon. Hailing from Windsor, Burns was serving a sentence of three months definite and six months indefinite and was due to come before the parole board in July. Alfred Ertell, of Brantford, William Taras, of Thoroldd, Frank Gedurza, of Windsor, and William Tracey, of Peterboro, were stated to have ridden out of the grounds with him.

Provincial police, aided by local police, scoured the roads, highways and immediate countryside as the escape was discovered at the usual check-up at the close of the day. Despite a wide search no trace of the men was found. They were attired in the regulation reformatory clothes of blue overalls and shirts.

Authorities at the institution believe that the escape followed a pre-arranged plan occuring shiortly before five o’clock. The dump is located about a half mile from the reformatory and it is usual for trusties to drive the garage wagon to the dump and return without a guard accompanying them.

‘It was all done very smoothly,’ declared Superintendent J. R. Elliott.

‘It was Burns’ last load of the day, and he was driving the team. He just drove through the picket lines as usual towards the dump with the other men under the garbage and when they were out of sight they abandoned the wagon and were seen running across a field.’

The wagon was found abandoned near the dump with every indication that the men had scrambled out from underneath the garbage hurriedly. The fugitives range in age from 19 to 26 years.

Ertell had a sentence of 40 months standing against him due to an escape from Burwash. He is 26 years of age, 5 feet 7 inches tall, about 143 pounds in weight and has reddish hair and brown eyes.

Three others, Caras, Gedurza, and Tracey had previously escaped from the brickyard and were serving various sentences. It is believed the men would try to head for the border and police along the route have been notified to keep a close watch for the fugitives.

“Fire-Fighting Apparatus of Former Days To Be Displayed,” Toronto Globe. June 30, 1934. Page 05.

“As its contribution to the city’s Centennial celebration, the Toronto Fire Department has been gathering together for some time past old firefighting apparatus which will be displayed in a parade. Specimen pieces of the old apparatus are pictured above, at the upper left being an early steam-driven pump which came into use about sixty years ago, and with improvement, continued to be used until 1927, when steam was superseded by the gasoline-driven pumps. Standing beside it is Fireman William Fleming, who had charge of the last ‘steamer’ of the T.F.D. in Portland Street Hall in 1922. At the upper right are displayed the new and old in nozzles or ‘branches’ as the fireman term them. The one at the right is from a hand-drawn and operated pump of 100 years ago, whcih was equipped with a hand-made hose of rivetted leather. It had a capacity of about fifty gallons a minute, as contrasted with the modern one at the left, whcih easily spouts three hundred gallons a minute under high pressure. Below is a four-wheel horse-drawn hose reel of about 1850, which carried 500 feet of hose, with a crew of five men. This type of wagon being used up till about 1880.”

“Old age rehabilitates criminals better than all programs, congress finds,” Globe and Mail. June 30, 1973. Page 12.

No one can say what will definitely work

By John Beaufoy, Globe and Mail Reporter
REGINA – About the only thing to come out of the Canadian Congress of Criminology and Corrections this week was the conclusion that nothing rehabilitates like old age.

With all the programs and all the experiments being tried across Canada, no one here was able to stand up and say, ‘This is the way to rehabilitate a criminal. This will work.’

Instead, six days of speeches, seminars, and learned papers have produced confusion in the minds of some delegates, adherence to rigid stances on the parts of others, and pleas for unity and co-ordination from almost everyone.

Which is not to say that the 600 people who wound up their conference here yesterday aren’t interested. After all, they’re professional. They make their living by working with society’s rejects – the men and women who’ve gone beyond ‘our’ limits.

But interest and dedication, many of the delegates admit, are not enough. What’s needed, they said, is a whole new approach to corrections.

So, a senator bangs his fist on the lectern and exhorts policy-makers not to build more prisons, while an official of the Canadian Penitentiary Service tells how many new institutions will be built in the next few years.

A professor criticizes the police, judiciary, corrections, parole and other after-care agencies for all operating independently, and the component parts respond that all they’re trying to do is their individual jobs. And, in fact, that’s what they’re doing.

The police arrest. The judge sentences. The prisons imprison. The parole board and the after-care agencies supervise and do what they can to bring the ex-offender back into the community. But it just doesn’t seem to have much of an effect on the offender.

And 80 per cent of those sentenced to federal institutions – serving terms of two years or more – have been in trouble before. Prison is just the end of a long winding road through juvenile court, training schools, probation and provincial jails.

‘They’ve been through the meatgrinder,’ says Paul Fuguy, Commissioner of Penitentiaries.

And, figures show, more Canadians are going through that meatgrinder every day and ending up in jail. The federal prison population has risen to about 9,000. A year ago it stood at 7,500.

Delegates here addressed themselves to the causes of this increase and its practical outcome – overcrowding in prisons, increased probation and parole case loads, more inmates to supervise with the same amount of staff, and less opportunity to attempt rehabilitation.

Institutional confinement even under the best of conditions is tension-producing, they comment. Crowd more people into the system, and there may be an increase in prison violence, more escapes, more parole violations.

This said, however, the same people contend there’s little they can do except try to cope with the people sent to them by the courts. The sheer volume of day-to-day work precludes their devising any new approaches to crime prevention, police discretion, or community – as opposed to judicial – disposition of offenders.

And, although there are indications that at some local levels that the various components are starting to work together, it’s not moving fast enough, according to John Braithwaite, Deputy Commissioner of Penitentiaries. 

‘We must cease this … warfare,’ he told the delegates. ‘We must strive to work better together.’

Without better communications, collaboration and co-operation between the police, judges, and corrections workers, the criminal justice system cannot become meaningful to the average Canadian, he said.

Yesterday provincial deputy ministers and their federal counterparts responsible for corrections met here to plan the agenda for the fall federal-provincial ministerial meeting on the subject.

The September meeting will be the first of its type since 1968. If that time-lag is startling, consider this: it wasn’t until October 1971 that the Canadian Penitentiary Service hired an information officer to tell its story.

‘The job,’ says Yvan Roy, ‘has proved challenging, but difficult. Spreading the word about prisons isn’t like announcing financial aid.’

His difficulty, like that of most people in the correctional field, seems to have been summed up by Mr. Braitwaite when he quoted King Solomon visiting his harem: ‘I have a vague idea of what is expected of me on this occasion, but I know not where to begin and I have grave doubts that I have either the stamina or the ability to fulfill my task.’

The Stony Mountain gang are still finishing their time in the isolation ward at Portsmouth Penitentiary. So far they have been well behaved, and have given no cause for suspicion. McNeill is with the other prisoners in the yards, and although a special watch is being kept over him it is unlikely that it is really needed. McNeill, when not influenced, is harmless enough. Nevertheless, every precaution will be taken to see that another escape is not attempted.

“The story of the Fall is one of the most enduring stories we have, and it is never fair. You could use it as a template for a certain kind of novel: put a choice in there, tip the balance, make the consequences so disproportionate we doubt our sense of cause and effect, make them suffer, make them into better human beings. Visually, the narrative is brilliantly successful, for being so easy to hold within a single frame. There is nothing static about the way the viewer sees an image of the first couple considering apples. It is a moment of great tension, and they are wearing no clothes. So, to the rules for writing a successful fiction, we might add, pretend that it is not about sex, make the world symbolic, expand the small asymmetries. Here are two human beings who are slightly, but perhaps disastrously, anatomically different. She likes something long, he likes something round – what could possibly go wrong?

The story is a riddle about authority and predestination that has survived the theological palaver of generations because, simple to the point of transparency, it is also impenetrably self-enclosed. It is held in a brilliant web of balance and contradiction by a few hundred words; so it is worth looking at those words and what they actually mean.

Just to be clear: there was no seduction. There was no devil, nor any mention of Satan, who was, at this stage, an unimportant figure. Although he played a sporadic role in the torment of Job, or in the temptation of Christ in the desert, Satan was not a mythical force before the bestiary of Revelation, and the rebellious Lucifer was some other angel until Milton came along. The idea of a great battle between light and the forces of darkness did not get going until early Christian times, possibly because this small, persecuted sect needed to find a great spiritual enemy against which to pit themselves. The creature in Genesis was just a snake, and though he was crafty, he didn’t seduce, nor did he ‘tempt’ Eve – this last term means ‘to test’ and is used only once in Genesis, when God tests Abraham, requiring the sacrifice of his son Isaac. So Eve did not tempt Adam, either, nor was he seduced by her nakedness. There is, in fact, very little sex in the story. Our readings of it are all subtext, all interpretation, all error.

The churches of my Irish Catholic childhood had no images of Eden. The idea that man was once born without sin had shrunk to the pinpoint of the Virgin Mary’s conception and there was no nakedness on display, with or without fig leaves, apart from the stripped and bloodied figure of the crucified Christ. ‘Why is Jesus wearing a nappy?’ a child asked once, quite loudly. This was not a question you would get away with after the age of four, nor were you encouraged to wonder if the figure depicted on the Cross was dead, or still alive. I was in my thirties before I realised the answer to a question I had found impossible, perhaps even blasphemous, to construct. Yes, he was dead, and we were truly, abjectly fallen; there was no imagining any other state.

The story of Adam and Eve, by contrast, is an invitation to childhood curiosity. The question of whether they had belly buttons has occupied both great minds and small. They are not just naked: their story is about nakedness and the idea, puzzling to an infant, that we should hide our bodies from view. Whether they had sex in the garden and, if so, what was it like – these were proper theological concerns. In fact their story is also about curiosity, and it does not end well. Almost before we know what the question is, we have received a catastrophic sequence of answers: shame, exile, suffering, death itself. When, ‘Because I say so’ fails to work, God must, like an Irish mother, resort to the fully tragic: ‘Because all men must die.’ So now you know. No wonder we try to get back to the moment before the question started to form. We try to imagine what it might be like to live without the knowledge that we are naked, and what that nakedness implies.

‘Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.’ The word ‘naked’ is a translation of the Hebrew erom, which is used to describe a state of being stripped or vulnerable, and is without sexual connotation. As for ‘no shame’, Jerome in his translation into the Vulgate Latin uses ‘et non erubescebant’ implying that Adam and Eve did not blush – and this is sweet, for Jerome. It suggests a moment of virginal self-consciousness, full of possibility. It also, perhaps, reflects Jerome’s skill as a linguist. The original word in Hebrew, bosh, comes from a primitive root ‘to pale’, and is here used reflexively – ‘and they were not ashamed before one another.’ In the rest of the Old Testament, bosh is used in contexts that involve feeling confounded or disgraced, but it is rarely linked to ideas of impurity and abomination (when it comes to sex, the Old Testament is mostly worried about marrying out). Other Latin translations settled on the stronger pudere, a term for shame which conveys bashfulness, as well as a sense of decency. Pudor contains the idea of being caught out, but it also had social and ethical implications. It was, for the Romans, a manly difficulty and not something a slave could experience. A woman’s honour was usually limited to sexual respectability, and this was referred to by the more limited form pudicitia. The concept conveyed by the word pudor suffered a narrowing of meaning over time, becoming more sexualised and specific. By the 17th century the root had yielded ‘pudenda’, meaning ‘genitals’, usually female. This is where the shame of nakedness landed and got stuck.

The castrated horror that is the female form may provoke man’s impulse to point, jeer or debase but, as a psychoanalytical parable, it feels reductive here. In English, ‘shame’ indicates a kind of feeling bad: ostensibly about what you have done, but possibly about what you are. ‘Toxic shame’ is a term in popular psychology for the unbearable feelings of worthlessness that flood the infant when abandoned or alone. Called out by God, Adam says: ‘I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.’ His nakedness, erom, merely implies vulnerability. Perhaps Adam and Eve hid from God not because they were suddenly prudish, nor because their disobedience had been found out, but because they realised their fragility and insignificance. They were exposed, not as sexual beings but as mortal ones.”

“A Canadian citizen spent eight months in immigration detention. The reason? Agents of the Canadian Border Services Agency “alleged his prints matched those of a fraudulent refugee claimant who was deported to Nigeria in the 1990s,” the Guardian first reported.

In June 2016, Olajide Ogunye provided citizenship papers and an Ontario health card to agents outside his Toronto home. Ogunye has been a Canadian citizen since 1996.

He was nonetheless eventually detained at both Central East and Maplehurst prisons — medium- to maximum-security jails. He is now suing the federal government for $10 million dollars.

His experience is a horrifying one. A key benefit of citizenship is protection from having said citizenship revoked without due process. A federal court affirmed last year that citizenship, once gained, is a right that cannot be easily or quickly stripped away. CBSA agents and immigration officials should not have been able deprive a citizen of liberty with as much ease as they did in Ogunye’s case.

And yet they were able to. This episode exemplifies the failures and fissures of the immigration system, especially the immigration detention process, that need to be addressed.

There is no system of oversight for the CBSA and its officers. It is one of the few enforcement agencies that operates without one.”
