DOWAGER'' EMPRESS OF JAPAN MAY PUT CANADA'S SIXTEEN HUNDRED CONViCTS-TO WORK Hon Mr Doherty Examines Prison Syattn-, of Britain and Frai-o Build Big Road Ottawa, Aug usit oi Hon. C J Dohertj to Britain and France may mean work of some convicts in the Canadian penitentiaries' on various construction- and roadmaking tasks for tlie. Dominion of Canada. The -Minister of Justice expressed, before leaving CawuH his intention of learning1 -in Britain and France hy peisontl v sits the litest methods Dl' handling convicts -and of making them of use to iii Britain it is; that Mr. Doherty visited Dartmoor, Reading and Hallffway and other-fanions British pi'isons. He is also "about to visit, while in France, several of the state prisons of--that republic. 'It is generally knov.-n that France has probably gone farther than any other country in the world in the economic handling of her prisoners. Would It Fit Hers? Of course, there is always the doubt as to whether a European systeun could be grafted on to Canadian con- ditions, owing to the difference in the people, the civilizations, and the char- acter of the men. in the prisons. But Mr, Doherty, according to the infor- mation of some men close to him Canada, Is of the opinion that the Can- adian convicts can be made of con- siderably greater use to the state than they have hith-erlo been. For one thing, in a country such as Canada, where there are thousands of miles of roads to be built and improved, it is thought that the prisoners could be set at this work with very few ex- ceptions. One or two of the French prisons havo.done considerable along the lines adopted 'by Hon. Mr. Hanna in, On- tario. That is, prison farms have boon established, and prisoners, with the exception of perhaps two per cent, of desperate men In for murder, nro Jlowed to work outside on the roads. U. S. Bzll and Chain In the United States men are plac- ed at work on city streets but fho 17. S. system Is entirely different from .inythinK that Canada would adopt as tlio American prisoners are shackled Ipsctlie? by ton 11. mid chain and are guarded by man with loaded rjfles> In tho entire Britiih- .the and chain gang, as tho system is known, hafl been abolished every' where, with tho exception of a few, places m Indu where it 1 applied to the natives. It is not thought that U would be advisable in Canada. The! Ontario system is .not. all of. this i kind, the prisoners, while they ara guarded, are' not shiicUled and are put to work on a kind of honor and good marks, meaning a reduction i in their sentence _ is given for good work couple-d with obedience, Are 1600 Available Of 'the seventeen hundred odd pris-j oners in the seven -Canadian peuiten- j tia-ries only 2G are of-the female sex.'; Thus with the exception of say 100 j men who might be regarded as dos-j like Bill Miner who have i a reputation of attempting an escape j at every would he some 1600. men available for road-1 making and other work, If -Mr. herty decides to use these meni. for this purport it would mean the -build- ing of many hundred. miles of road annually. It is said that owing to; the fear of using prisoners in ways that would prevent the ordinary citizen laborer from -getting- work, ihe prisoners could only ;be usert in the building of roads through the wilds, in such places as otherwise would not be developed ex- cept by -prison labor. In fact it is not thought. TvoU by many people that growing children should see prisoners r-.t work under 'guards, so it is not likely- that much of this work would foe dene in or near cities. A report on what he has seen and decided is expected from the Minister of -Justice onco lie arrives back in Canada and has had time to develop his system and apply it to this coun- try.
