MISS E. P. HUGHES ON PRISON REFORM. THE NEED OF A PROBATIONARY SYSTEM. Mias E. P. Hughes, Barry, was the speaker on Sunday evening last at a meeting of the Cardiff Independent Labour Party. Miss Hughes dealt with the probation system of prison reform, and the wonderful success it had proved in America. By the probation system is meant the option given a judge of sending a criminal to gaol or of com- mitting him to a period of supervision by specially- appointed probation officers. Statistics submitted proved how desirable a reform the system is, and Miss Hughes, who has made the subject a special study, recounted her personal impressions whilst in America. The essentials for the success of the probation system were the appointment of proper men to the positions of officers, strictly excluding the policeman. Prison was intended to reform a criminal, as well as punish him, but no one could say there was much reform in any person leaving prison. Rather was it a place that hardened a convicted man. Probation would do away with all that, as had been practically proved in America." Miss Hughes felt confident the system would soon be introduced in England, and that the Government would pass a permissive Act of Parliament on the subject. She was also very anxious that Cardiff should be a centre to first try it on.
