"The prisoners were all manacled
and shackled about the ankles, with
chains fastened to bands at the wrist.
They were a despicable lot, At night
a continual moaning and cursing and
hopeless sobbing came up from the
hatches and made sleep out of the
question for me. though the European
officer in the steamer's cabin apparent

morning I went on deck and learned
that two of the male prisoners were

deck for air. They were closely guard
ed, and raw recruits were stationed at
the railing to prevent them from com
mitting suicide by Jumping overboard
Into the Hugli river.
"The Andamans are literally the
bom es of murderers. The inhabitants
are' the most vicious memliers of an
older civilization and the uncivilized
head Annters, among whom murder Is
a epot-e and a" pastime. In the settle
ment are about 1,700 prisoners. Includ
ing 800 women. On arriving at Port
Blair the prisoners first spend six
months In solitary confinement in the
cellular Jail of Viper Island. They are
then transferred to one of the associ
ated Jails and the comparative bless
ing of hard labor In company with
others, though still occupying separate
cells at night. After a year and a
half of this they become slaves, work

the day, and sleeping in barracks at

vigilance of the authorities the com
