RUSSIAN GAOLS FULL. A gentleman, an authority on the subject, with whom I (Daily Chronicle correspondent) have just had a conversation on crime and criminals in Russia, informs me there can be, no doubt, thct if the congested state of the prisons is any test crime in Russia is alarmingly on the increase. He attributes this to the present demoralised state of the peasantry, who in large areas of the country have been driven by want and mal-ad- ministration to criminal practices. Incidentally this gentleman mentioned that there were some- thing like 4,000 prisoners in the gaol at Tomsk. Many of these are there simply because they have no passports, but will doubtless soon become criminals by admixture with the other prisoners.
