This had been done recently, considerable damage had been done, and  expense incurred by the Fire Department turning out to the same.  There was a by-law existing , said  Aid.

The highly commendable action of  Superintendent' Collins, of-the    New  York state prisons,: in abolishing the  "lock-step"  as a  feature of    prison  discipline in the institutions     under  his charge is being followed   by   the  prison authorities in other    states.  The    "lock-step" has been abolished  in the two chief prisons in Illinois,  and also in the state penitentiaries  of Ohio and Wisconsin.     It is only a  question of a short time when   -every: state in the Union will reco@mz������  the   wisdom   and humanity   of.--the  movement started by the able prison  (superintendent    of    New York state  for the abolition    not only of    tho  "lock-step," but of every other feature of prison discipline which;-tends  to add    to the - degradation of   the  ''criminal, to set him apart from his  fellows and .brand him as    hopeless  and  irredeemable.    Modern penological science rightly places the emphasis upon    the    redemptive influences  made possible    in prison life rather  than upon    the merely punitive fea-  'tures, as was formerly the case. The  ,'idca is that to restore men to self-  respect,  honest manhood,  and   good  ^citizenship is more humane,  as well  as more economical, than to    follow  processes  which  practically  convert  a- prison    into     a   school of crime,  .turning out men upon  society moro  -degraded, ' desperate  and   determined  vto do^evil than- they .wore when they;  ^ent. in.���������Leslie'fl Weekly.
