NUMBER 102 Keeping an Eye on The Situation COLUMBUS, 0., Feb. Gov. ernor Harmon sent to the legis- lature last night a special mes- sage transmitting the report and recommendations of the specjal committee of the last legislature that Investigated the subject of state Institutions for the punish- ment of convicted women. The committee ae has already been announced recommends that the state build at once a women's reformatory similar to the one for men that is now In operation at Mansfield; that there be built in connection with it a prison for women where older criminals and those addicted to crime may be confined for punishment, and that the state Industrial school for girls at Delaware be rebuilt Ihe women's prison and women reformatoiy are to be built togethe tut that is merely to save the extr expense of a separate management fo eath. The inmates are to be hep wholly sepaiate. The governor rec ommends that tie Joint Institution b v holly under thejare and manage r.-ent of wornefl; and thaTif it is fel necessary to have the co-operation o men in its management at all i could be secured by placing men o the board of trustees. 'The governor in his message trans H'ittin? the repoit says that publi sentiment on the subject of women' prisons has reached an acute stage end that the conditions are such as the public will not longer tolerate He clludes to the fact that while the etate has provided an excellent refor ir.atorv for men nothing m that line ras. been done for women Me is loath to believe that this had been as a deliberates discrimination in the I?

He says that if any legal question jh lamed as to the legality of plac-t Ing women in charge of the institu- tion the point may be avoided by a provision placing the institution in Charge of a matron He suggests that the same thing ought to be done Ri the girls' industrial school and Suggests that the position of superin- tendent of that institution be abol- ished.

Dodge, forced her way from Put-in Bav into the harbor here and landed at ihe Oilcher Schuck dock. This Is the earlist opening of navi- gation here in jears. The trip was made without unusual difficulty. Much of the lake is open and the worst ice was encountered after the bav.was reached It took some time to force a passage through this ice but it was accomplished. With the ctanne thus opened Captain Dodge expects lo make regular dailv trips The Tourist left Putin Bay at 8 o'clock and made a stop at kellcns Island. She carried a number of pas sengers and had some freight aboard Captain Griesser, of the Marbleuead life saving station, was on the look out for the little vessel and reported her progress. Naturally there was great joy a- mong the islanders Tuesday over the departure and successful trip of the Tourist. Heretofore they have had to a wait the starting of the Lakeside and during much of the winter have been practically isolated.
