The grand jury yesterday presented
their report lo the Hon. Mr. Justice
Morrison ou the assizes and the pub-
lie institutions In New WeBtmlnster
and Coqultlam. Some of the comments with regard to the jail were
Bcathlngly condemnatory and the re- |
-commendations draBtlc. The report
wus as follows:
After considering and disponing of
Ihe various Indictments submitted to
us, we are of the opinion that some j
of the cases presented, more especially those involving orientals, ihould
have been finally dealt with by the
lower courts. The necessity for bring-
ing them up at the assizes Ib not clear
to us. and we think an unnecessary
expense to the province has been in-
ourred In consequence of such action.
In the course of our duties we have;
visited the various public Institutions
of this city and iliistrict.

We were conducted through the
hospital for the Insane, and the col-

Everything we saw during an exhaustive Inspection of the fnrm was

We inspected thc hospital for the

be commended for securing the services Of Slich efficient officers aa thoae
responsible for the state of these Institutions.
We visited the Royal Coulrablan
hospital and were shown over the

Roast the Jail.
On visiting the provincial Jail we
did nct find ;t in an altogether com-j
mendable condition. We consider, tbat.
generally speaking, it Is a fire trap'
and should be superseded hy nn entirely new building of modern design

We would like to express our crave
reprehension of the fact that it Is the
custom of the matron to lock the
women's ward and carry lhe key away

had a fire occurred at the time of our
inspection, the women's ward could
not have been entered, a state ot affairs, which, considering the helplessness of those confined, can only
be characterized  as  astounding.
With further reference to the condition of the jail with regard to the
danger of fire, we would like to condemn In the strongest possible terms

The report on the operations pf, the
hospitals   for   the   Insane   In   Ontario
for the past year shows that insanity
Is  costing  Ontario practically  a  mil- I
lion dollars a year.
The total number of insane In the
Institution is 573C, of whom 2769 are '
male and 'i'.idl female, a net Increase
of 86 for the year. Tbe dally average
for the year was 0682, an Increase- of
90. The admissions for the yearl-to-
talhd 1247. an Increase of 103, There
were 460 deaths, an IncreaBe or 45,
and 578 discharged, an increase Of 28
over the previous year.
Deportations Heavy '
The number of deportations shows
an increase of 32, with a total of 25*.
Of these 66 were Insane, 49 criminal,
and 43 who were likely to become a
charge upon  the community.
Tliere lias been a steady growth
in the revenue from the hospitals for
the insane under the present government, and the increased income aggrades $S636. The total for the
year was $312,326, as against $303,-
698 for the previous year.
Better   Facilities
Greater facilities for the care of the
insane have resulted ln Improvements
everywhere. An additional hundred
acres has been purchased at llrockvllle, making 320 acres, aud with the
640 acres at the new asylum at Whitby, the needs of the hospitals will be
largely supplied by the work of the
patients. Manual and health 'work
has been found to lie most beneficial
in lessening mental degeneracy, and
under the direction of Superintendent
Edwin It. Rogers, who has carried
out the directions of the ministers In
the hospitals for the insane, a high
standard has been reached that is
being adopted in many of the institutions of the United States and Europe.
What  Insanity Costs
The cost of running the several hospitals for the insane for the past year
was as follows: Brockville, $1J3.420;
Coburg. $26,813; Hamilton. J 194.756:
Kingston. $117,691; London, $170,404;

T. .1. ARMSTRONO, Sheriff,
(1738) Bailiff Inr the Landlord
Montreal, July 15. Charles Klein,
who pleaded guilty to pocket picking
Iin the Bonaventure station and was
released on suspended sentence by
Judge Bazin turns out lo be one ol
the most notorious crooks on the continent.
Kline, wIiq has a dozen aliases such
as Marcovitch, Cooper and others, has
a record of convictions and escapes
in and around New York city as long
;ns one's arm. This record, however,
did not arrive until after he had been
allowed to go ou suspended sentence.
The whole thing is a bit out of the
usual, the fact that the case was disposed of in chambers being one ot
:the features of it.
Accompanied by Woman.
Klein, or Marcovitch, or whatever
he is called at home, was accompanied, employees of the courl house say.
by a very handsome woman who had
money to burn, and carried a fat bank
roll, containing amongst other denoni
Inaudns, a lew bundred dollar bills
in her handbag. The lawyers engag
ed in the case, it is said, were paid
magnificently for their services; and
there was a general air of luxury
about her.
Judge liazin, who sits on Tuesdays
and thursdays only, was at his coun
try residence and could not be seen.
Chief Charpeuler, Of the Montreal
detective force, when asked about the
case,  said:
"Vou can hardly expect me to discuss the action of a judge; but I will
say this, that our department feels
pleased at having captured such a
notorious pickpocket as this man
Unfortunately, we did not know he
had such a bad record until afier he
had been allowed out on suspended
sentence. The fact that we got the .
record at all goes to show that our
department leaves no stone unturned
in going after these fellows."
Long  Record
ln 1903 Klein was convicted in New
York of grand laceny and sent to thi
penitentiary for a year. In 1904 he
was convicted of disorderly conduct
in Newark and fined, ln 1906 he was
convicted of grand laceny In New-
York anil sent to the penintentiary
for six months. In 1908 he was con
victed in Hartford. Conn., of pocket
picking mid sent to Jail for six
months. In 1910 he was arrested a
couple of times for pocket picking.
,f ned and sent to jail for a short time
In 1911 he was once arrested for
grand larceny and discharged. After
wards he was arrested in Boston on
j the same charge and defaulted his
'bail. A month later he was nabbed
j in Brooklyn again, on the same charge
j and again jumped his bail.
In connection  with  this question of
pick tuckets, a leiter was referred to
Mr.   Charpentier   from   a   city   in   the
'United   States,   in   which   the   writer
charged  that two New  York  pickpoc-
I kets were allowed lo do business In
i Montreal, and In return pointed out
all the visiting pickpockets to tlle local detectives with whom they were
|aIso supposed  to  share some iif  their
False, Eay3 the Chief
At first the chief was inclined to
'become angry, but his sense of humor
got the better of him, and he laughed.
"What do >ou expect me to say
! about this." he asked. "Of course it
'is not only a falsehood but foolish.
i Do you suppose I would permit
| such a thing? What is more. I maintain there Is not a city, taking the
population in proportion, on the Ann r
can continent, so free from pickpockets na Montreal.
"We arrest all who come here. If
the judges do not let them out on
I bail .vo convict them too, and send
i them to jail. Our records even thus
; far. show that. We have arrested
about 20, some of them have received
| fourteen yeur  sentences.
"But this ball business is our bete
| noire, lt makes us the laughing stuck
of the underworld of the l'nited States. I have told one of tlle judges so
"But we can't help that. We keep
on arresting the pickpockets just the
same. If we can't jail them, we can
at any rate put them to considerable
expense and  keep  them  moving."

County  Superintendent of Charities

of the deceased and asked that she be

The woman appeared at the office

Claims Widow's Rights.
Nothing further was heard from the
ease until the woman appeared at the
courthouse and said that she was the
widow and asked that she he given
his clothing. After she was informed that the el ithes were probably destroyed or had been given to some
inmate of the institution she declared
that their savings had been sewed in
the lining of the coat by her own
' hands.
"The woman declared that she had
failed to confess that she was the wife
of Mr. Coleman, as she hoped that he
would he cared It bv the eountv until the time of his death." said Mr
Redding yesterday. "She did not say
exactly Imw much their savings
amounted to. hut lhat it was a considerable sum."
Toronto, July 15. The charge of
conspiracy to defraud broughl against
Rutherford Cuming, Kred L. Richardson and Solomon Thompson, In connection with the alleged "padding" of
tiie pay sheets for work done on the
intake pipe, was dismissed hy Judge
Morgan. His honor finds that tliere
was no conspiracy; that the city
could not have been and was not defrauded, as It held a sufficient "holdback" to cover any overcharge, and
that the contractors, In increasing the
pay rolls were simply covering the
losses they would have suffered
through the disorganizing of their oth-
'er work ln "rushing" the intake repairs. His judgment reads in part:
An Adjustment.
"I am glad to observe that the city
and the contractors have made an
adjustment of their difficulties, but
this is quite apart from the criminal
indictment and has no influence upon
my judgment In the case. 1 will say.
however, that had 1 found them guilty
this settlement would have Influenced
me in passing sentence."
In finding the accused not guilty, his
honor pointed out 'hat the crown had
to reply, in making out its case, solely
upon the evidence of the accused
themselves, "and it is an Inflexible
and just principle of law that when-
ever's a man's own statement is taken
to establish a case against him, it is
pit allowable to take from his evidence  only   that     which     establishes
I criminality, and exclude what may ex-
I plain  what  appears  to be criminal.
"The   work  on   the   Intake   was  an
1 emergency or rush job, and the dt -
fendants had to do it at scuh times as
I the weather permitted.
"They had to be ready at all times
lo  take  up  the  work  and   press  it  to
I completion.     They   were   to   he   paid
'20 per cent, over and above the cost.
.This is a wide term, and these people
interpreted it to mean not only the
money,  material  and  labor  used,  bul
��� also  such  losses  that  they  sustained
1 through disorganization."

"Cunimlngs had intimated this view
of the case to Engineer Rust, so that
���the proceedings 'lacked the element
of secrecy which is a part of all eon
i splracj'.'
"It   was   not   a   loading   up   of     the
ipay sheets, for losses on other work,
but a charging to the intake contract
the actual cost of the work.
| "Cunimlngs made a grave mistake.
It was a stupid way of doing what
he wished done. He should have sent
in proper sheets and then supplemented these with a claim for extras Had
the city disputed this he could have

They Were Not "Regulation" Trousers'
and  Three  Soldiers Had  to

Ottawa. July 15, The members of

are hard up fir trousers. Three of the

There   must   he   no   mistake   here; ���
'regulation trousers" means the Bpeclal trousers which belong to the uni-

had   lint   "regulation"   trousers;   that |
was   all      They   just   wore   ordinary
trousers,   such   as   ordinary   civilians'
wear.     Apart   from   that  detail   they
were  dressed  quite  correctly,   in  the
"regulation"  redcoats    and the "reg- j
illation" caps.
Although   it   was   almost   dark   on;

inspecting  officer,  noticed  the  nmis-
'���ion when the regiment lined up to be
"Fall out, take those trousers off
and put on proper ones," he thundered, when he came to these men.
The men looked blank for a moment, and then fell out of thc ranks
in   the  ���'regulation"   manner.
Hut they didn't take their trouBers
off: at least not Immediately. They
lust went to the drill hall and talked
the matter over for a time. Then
thev went home, for the simple reason
that there was not another pair of
trousers to be had.
The supply of "regulation" uniforms has been a vexed topic, for
