Till-: SOCIAL BIDE OF UFK IN UNO
RINO PRISON.
A sort of social revolution ha.-, been ROini? on Bl the
Slat- prison In Slnir Sin* .luring thc IBS) WCCk a*
the i-esn'.t of the system ...f elaaslfleatlor recently
adopted hy the State prison authorities. The ctaaal*
tl.-atlon consists In the division of the prisoners into
four grades, according to their criminal re*ords.
The tir*t gr.i le called Oroup A. conalsta of men now
serving their first term; the second grad", Oroup I!,
of rn"ti who have sorrell on* previous term; the
third grade, Croup C. of men who have served more
than on< previous term, and the fourth gr.t le, Oro ip
D, ,.f men of .ie,-ale.i criminal tendencies and vicious
hahlts
To carry ou: this sy?terc lt has heen necessary to
.hangs min from their former companies, galleries,
cells an.l workshops. Now all the prisoners in one
glade occupy exclusively certain galleries in the
prison, They ara kepi separate from the other
ural. - In the workshops and In the messroom. As
the coveted poaltlone among convicts, sa,-ii a* book*
keepers, walters an.l the like, now go to men In
'Iroup A. a tiiiml.fr of prisoners who have ably tilled
these places now find themselves assigned to the
ranks of Idle men of the Inferior grade, Because they
have served previous terms of imprisonma'tit.
In the nama? way. In the matter of calls, prl?oners
who hive occupied one parti.-ular cell for years until
lt became almost homelike In Its familiarity, now an
actually homesick in some cell |a a distant part of
the prison, with sinim* convicts for nelghbore and
an unfamiliar officer for keeper.
Warien Sage ls much pleas..1 with thc svstem and
believea it will greatly benefit th> discipline of the
prison and at the same time have a srrong moral
effect up.ai th.* min. Now a prisoner employed 66 a
bookkeeper ar In some other easy and pleasant
place knows that If tn* is sent Lack to prison after
he ls discharged, no matter how capable he ls. he
?an never <xpe,-r to get his ?'..',,1 lol." again. So
thorough an,I Impartial has the classification of m.*n
been that warden Sage himself laments the loss of
his chef, an excellent cook. I.ut whose previous term
of Imprisonment made him ineligible to a place
which ls now un- ..f the privileges of Oroup A.
