Before the conquest and for a long ; time after at least two-thirds of the people of England were denuded of all the substantial attributes of freedom. The lords had the absolute disposal of them. They might be attached to the soil or transferred by deed, sale or con veyance from one lord to another. They could not chance their place or hold property—in short, they were slaves under their obligation of per petual servitude, which the consent of the master alone could dissolve. The system was not fairly abolished until the reign of Charles 11., and so late as ; 1775 men were bought and sold in ' Scotland with the estates to which they 1 were bound. Quite Enough.

He tob them that it rested entirely with them selves whether they were granted ai J tonomy or not Last year the numbi j of inmates increased, but the nujjibc lof reported infractions of the rule was 2,002 less than during the prev' ous year.

Prisoners are produced before the council and faced * by their accusers, who are their fellow inmates or councilmen from their tier ' and they are given an opportunity to cross examine witnesses and testify in ' their own defense. If the accused is [ found guilty he is sentenced to the loss * of some privilege. i The decision of the council is final It is not subject to approval by the > superintendent or any officer of the In i stitution, and none of the officers if I permitted any voice in its delibera tions.
