' .. a
Carious Fact The Women's Quarter at
j i . . - -.
Iclilgawa A Case.
With the exception of the Yoshiwara, of
which plenty hereafter, tho two prisons of
Tokio are the most interesting-'things I have
seen in Japan. These are, first, the great
prison upon the Island of Ishikawa, at tho t
south of the city, and, second, the convict
and female prison of Ichigawa, in the center j
of the city itself. Tho former is completely
isolated, all communication with the main
land being by polico ferry, and contains
2,0o2 men and boys, all of whom aro serving
term3 of ten years or less. The latter con
tains 1,400 men and 110 women, among
whom ore many serving life sentences.
There is a convict farm attached, and it te ,
here that capital punishment is inflicted, i
Otherwise tho two prisons resemble each '
other so closely that it is not necessary to
distinguish between them in description.
The entrance is through a massive wpoden
gateway into a guard room, adjoining
which are tho offices of the director und'offl
ciab. The prison itself consists of a score or
more of detached ono story buildings, all of
wood and somo of them merely substantial
sheds, under which the rougher labor, like
stono breaking, 13 performed. Tho dormi
tories aro enormous wooden cages, the front
and part of the back formed of bars as thick
as ono's arm, beforo which again is a narrow
covered passage where tho warder on guard
walks at nisht.
TUS PUXISIIJIEXT CELL.
On leaving tho dbrmitories we passed a
small, isolated square erection, peaked and
gabled liko a li tie temple. The door was
solemnly unlocked and flung back and I was
motioned to enter. It was tho punishment
cell,.another spotless wooden box, well ven
tilated but perfectly dark, and with walls so
thick as to render it practically silent. "How
many prisoners havo been in it during tho
last month?"' I asked. The director sum
moned tho chief warder and repeated my
question to him. "H'tori mo gozaimasea
nono whatever," was thereply. "Whatother
punishments have 3'ouP "Ione whatever."
lilo floggingP When this question was
translated the director and tho little group of
officials all laughed together at the baro idea.
I could not help wpndcring whether thoro
was anotbsr prison in the wprld with no
method of punishment for 2,000 criminals ex
cept ono dark cell, and that not not used for
a month. And tho recollection of tho filthy
and suffocating sty used as a punishment cell
In tho city prison of San Francisco canio upon
zno liko a nausea.
A Japaneso prison ma' be, divided into two
parts dormitories and workshops. Of cells
or prison buildings, properly speaking, there
is nothing whatever. "Walking across the
yard wo entered tho first workekop, where a
couplo of hundred prisoners were maLing
machinery and steam boilers. Ono warder,
armed on?y with a sword, is reckoned for
cver3 fifteen men, and hero tho prisoners wcro
working on contract orders for outside firms,
under tho supervision of ono skilled teacher
and ono representative of tho linn giving tho
contract. So it was in tho fino art depart
ment and every other of tho score of work
A CUItlOITS TACT.
Prisoners employed at tho higher classes of
labor aro credited with one-tenth tho sum re
ceived for their handiwork. But as tho wo-k
was so good and tho running expenses seemed
so light 1 was much surprised to learn that
tho prison was not yet self supporting, only
seven-tenths of tho total cost being realized
fiom tho sale of prisoners' work. Another
curious fact is that every adult prisoner ia
detained for six months after his sentence ex
pires if he is not claimed in the mean time
by his friends, and until ho is of adult ago if
bo has not reached it and is unclaimed.
Theso prisoners wear bluo instead of red,
after their sentences havo expired.
Tho women's quarter at Ichigawa is sepa
rated from the men'j by a high wooden fenco
and gateway guarded by a ccntinel, and con
sists of two or threo dormitories and ono
large, comfortable workshop, where all the
110 are employed together at labor let out by
contract. When I was thero they wcro all
hemming silk handkerchiefs, each seated
upou tho matted lloor beforo a httlo table,
and vcr y neat they ell locked and very pretty
some of them, with their loeso red gowns.and
simply twisted hair. "Tho20 aro forgers,"
said tho officer, pointing to threo of them; "I
do not liko them to bo eo pretty." Ono of ths
women had a 3'oung baby playing besido her,
and another of them, as sho glanced up at
us, showed a faco entirely different from t'o
rest, pale, sad and refined, and I saw that
her hands w cro small and very white. It
was Hanai Ume, tho once famous geisha of
Tokio, famous for her beauty, her samisen
playing, her dancing, her prido, and iapsS
famous of all for her affairo d'amour.
A I-avrycr's Straaso Client.
"Sometimes a lawyer has somo very queer
clients to deal with," casually remarked a
lawyer who has an office in tho Garfield build
ing, Brooklyn, to a reporter a few days since.
"I think the strangest client I ever had,"
continued the disciple of Blackstone, "was
ono I met whilo practicing in Now York.
There was a man arrested for burglary, and
I was retained to defend him. The case, I
must say, was strong against him, but I suc
ceeded in getting him off, and ho paid mo
just CS0O for my services. It was about a
year later that I sat in my of3co when tho
acquitted burglar entered. I recognized him
in a moment and greoted him cordially. Of
course I had an idea ho was in trouble again
and wanted mo to help him oat. When I
gavo him a chair ho had hardly seated him
self beforo ho exclaimed that ha wanted 50,
and ho wanted mo to give it to bun. For a
moment I thought ho wa3 going to rob mo in
my own office, but I mustered courago and
asked him what ho wanted it for.
" 'Ask mo no questions,' he replied, 'youTl
bo better off if you don't know. If I succeed
I will pay you back; if I don't you will leso
"I considered for a littio while and finally
concluded to give it to him. I did so, and ho
hurried out of my office
"Threo mornings afterward the mcmkig
papers told of a daring bank robbery m
Main:, and tho description of ono of tho sus
picious characters who had bean eecn in tho
neighborhood of tho bank tallied with my .
cheat. It struck mo very forcibly at first, i
