Having decided, then, that .a jail was an, absolute necessity in this mod- iel, well-governed -province, the' de partmeat of Public Works began, to cast about to find a most suitable lo- cation. Lethbridge1 was finally decid- ed upon and a block of two hundred acres of i. as --i about three miles east of the city The building was iiiehed to pletion and1 was otcumcd' for the first; time on Friday, June 13. Without dpuM, the provincial .jail at-Tollbridge is a model of up-to-date- ness. Jt was the intention of gov crnnienl to build a detention which, would embrace- all the lales.t features in good jail buildings, and in this they have .succeeded. J3very- thing- which could be 'done for comfort of the prisoners was done, and all (lie good points of other Ca- nadian and American jails were fol- lowed to the letter. To describe the jail at Lethbridge to tbe oidm.uv Ionian be a hpj'd lask, unless al. first inspected by him. However, in order to .give its readers EOIIIO idea of tho building, the Herald sent its representative; out.to inspect the building, rind kindness of Dr. was fortunate enough to spend a coii- pie-of hours going through the Jail from one end to the other, taking a note of every point of. interest. Absolutely Fireproof Tbe building throughput is of re- inforced concrete, making it absolute ly fireproof. The walls and exterior are of solid concrete and pressed red brick, giving it a very fine nppean ance to the passer-by, and In this re sjiect there Is not looking building of its kind. In tho, whole'Do- minion. U is GO built that.an addi- tion may be made to it w.thout troii blc at any lime when .an addition be considered necessary. Generally speaking, the building In in (.wo main parts, the main building on the west, and the wing on east, which Is much The west part of the building is complete with two sloroys and a basement, while the wing is 'two storeys 'in height, but without a basement, Entering the jail by the .main en- deputy warden's room will then be moved upstairs.' Going upstairs from the mam entrance lull Is the deputy warden's bedroom, off which there is .1 "ell-eqmppcd.bHthrooin.

If it is at all possi- ble, Warden Rivers SHU! that he would like to see arrangements made to keep the women prisoners where they so that; this section night be given over for the accommo- dation of the men. At the present time there ft re only seven women pria- oners in-the whole as .these coma mostly from Calgary and the is thought that some ar- rangements may be .made to keep them there, BO that the whole building could be used for men prisoners onlj It would have giving up a third of the building to. sav- ing the expanse of keeping.a matron and other lady If women prisoners are kept here.
