Government Office,

Hon. D. M. Eberts,
A ttorney-General,
Victoria, B. C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the annual statistical report of Kamloops Gaol for the
prison year ending 31st October, 1901.
During the year 219 prisoners were received in the gaol from various parts of the District.
No escapes have taken place and the conduct of the prisoners has been very good.
The health of the prisoners has been exceptionally good. Of the three deaths which we
had during the year, one was from disease acquired before his entrance to the gaol and the
other from suicide.
All prisoners sentenced to hard labour have been kept constantly employed on the gaol
grounds or on the grounds of the various Government buildings in the city, particularly at the
Provincial Home. 1582
Police and Prisons Report.
1901
During the year we erected a new stable and hose-reel house and placed new foundations
under the cells in the gaol.
Both gaol and outbuildings are in first-class condition and practically little required in
the way of repairs.
Religious services have been conducted fairly regularly each Sunday during the year.
I have, etc.,
John Vicars,   Warden.

F. S. Hussey, Esq., Superintendent of Provincial Police,
Victoria, B.  G.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the Annual Report of the Provincial Gaol at Nanaimo,
for the year ending October 31st, 1901. During the year 87 prisoners were received from the
several districts and Nanaimo City, as follows :—Alberni, 1; Comox, 12 ; Cowichan, 9 ; West
Coast, 1; City, 21; and Nanaimo districts, 43. The conduct of the prisoners, with few
exceptions, has been good. No deaths or escapes occurred during the yeur. The principal
work done by the prisoners was making and repairing roads in Newcastle Reserve, assisting in
repairing Gaol building, planting, weeding, taking out crop, cutting wood, and general work
about the Gaol premises. The crop was good, there being scarcely any cut-worms, which did
such damage last year. Divine Service was held regularly by the Methodist Church and the
Salvation Army. The W. C. T. U. kindly supplied reading matter for the use of the prisoners.
The officers have attended to their duties faithfully.
