slon of tho Legislature, Judge Whit
ney snld that tho court had ban lied
n total of 203 delinquent cases and
25 dependant. The figures also show
that probation was granted in 90
per cent of the cases, Indicating that
out of each 100 cases b'efore .tho
court It was considered necessary
that only ten bos should go to the
reform school this percentage be
ing materially higher by reason of a
gang of petty thieves which It was
necessary to break, up.
Judge Whitney received the visits
of 657 bo) s and girls during, the

sising the need ot a paid probation
officer. He tins pralso for the good
work of the probation officers', who
