FH1DAY, MAY 7, 1880.
Jn the past, thi) question linn often
been mooted, whether or not :i ic
form school should be regarded as n
kind of prison. Jiut the best thought
of the present age has decided that
every prison ought to lie a kind of
reform school. The old, barbarous
idea of exercising vengeance upon
those incarcerated in prison ha no
room in modern civilization. In
tliis respect great change have
taken place in the management of
prisons in Europe and Anieiica
during the present century. In
many of the Southern States of
America great changes of sentiment
on this subject have been manifested
during the last two years. The
spirit of this country dictates that
society punish those who violate its
laws, just so far and in just such a
way, as will most effectually prevent
the repetition of crime by the indi
viduals or by other. That the
prison system of the Hawaiian
Islands falls far short of the ideal
must be evident upon even a cursory
examination. Prisons accomplish
their end the prevention of crime,
through the segregation of crimi
nals, thus checking their evil inllu-
once upon the innocent, through the
reform of criminals thenielves, and
through the salutary inlluencc of
example of crime punished. In all
three of these particulars our penal
svstem stands open to criticism. In
the llrst place, offenders of all
grades, from the school boy for
petty larceny to the brutal wretch
who assaults unprotected women or
attempts to take tho life of his fel
low mini, all are sent, or may be
sent according to law, to the same
prison. There is no likelihood that
the school boy's inlluencc will re
form his degraded companion. But,
on the other hand, there is every
likelihood that such companionship,
enforced by law, will result in incal
culable harm to the boy. These arc
extreme cases, but there i a great
difference in the classes of offendeis
shut up in one another's society in
our prisons. Placing all classes of
evildoers in one prison i not the
segregation which will lesult in the
greatest possible diminution of
crime. And another defect, just as
failure to separate
prisoners from the rest of society.
Jt is a painful and unhappily com
mon thing to see children playing
about, and even conversing with
prisoners at their work. How can
this fail to result in evil?
What effort is put forth to leforin
those whom the btate has deprived
of tlicir liberty because of their
having fallen into crime? Ho who
undertakes to answer this question,
so far as the state is concerned,
assumes no heavy task. To tell
what conscientious woik is done in
this line by individuals, and with
what degree of skill and success, is
a different matter. Hut such work
in public institutions is always un
satisfactory unless carried on under
the authority of the management.
It is biul economy for tho state to
shirk this responsibility.
When prisoners work side by side
with unoffending laborers, and on
practically equal terms, the example
of their punishment loses much of
its salutary inlluencc. Too great
familiarity with criminals nearly
always results in harm.
All desirable reforms cannot be
made at once. Yet it is time for
something to be done if Hawaii is to
keep up with the most advanced
nations. The Legislature cannot
do a better thing than to appoint a
committee or arrange tor a commis
sion to investigate thoroughly and
report what changes are desirable,
and what can be done in that line
at picsent. Then action should be
taken upon the matter at once.

I nin icported as having said "that

by your repoiter, if the masts wore

spars are the best part of the
vessel." I never spoke of her tim
bers at all, because I have never
had an opportunity of seeing them.
