the Cretan government has informed
the consuls of the protecting powers
Nat it will not lower the Greek flag

Heretofore the state has been leas-

the recommendation of the commis-

of commissioners of state institutions
to purchase not less than 500 acres.

"directed to withhold from lease all
females, the aged. diseased, crippled.
deformed and all other prisoners who.
in the discretion of said board are not
suited to perform manual labor." This
will serve as a nucleus for the state
penitentiary. The number of prison-
ers now handled in Florida ranges
from 1700 to 1750. The death rate is
12.60 In 1907 to 11.30 In 1908 per thou-
sand. "In most cases the prisoners
die from the effect of diseases con-
tracted before entering the state pris-

climate it is more or less absolutely
necessary that a large body of crim-
inals should not be huddled together
in a close enclosure. At present they
are divided into about 41 camps, in
which houses are built, surrounded by
modern palisades or walls. There are

In Florida. short term convicts sen-
tenced by local courts are leased out
by the county commissioners, and the
terms and conditions prescribed for
their care, treatment and use, vary
greatly and are very irregular. In
some of the counties a reduction of
time is allowed for good behavior of
the convicts, while in others there is
no such reduction. In some counties
it is required that decent clothing and
a small amount of money must be giv-
en to each prisoner when released,
while in other counties discharged
prisoners are given nothing. The state
makes provision for each of these al-
lowances. Experience has shown that
when serious wrongs are perpetrated
in the treatment of county convicts.
criticisms are hurled at the whole
system, regardless of the successful
efforts which the state and many
counties are making to have the lease
system operated in a careful and re-
simnsible manner. Some of the news-
papers are too politic to locate the re-
sponsibility for abuses which occur, to
place blame where it belongs, prefer-
ing Instead to bring a general indict-
ment against the whole lease system.

state and to a number of the counties
which have gone a long ways towards
perfecting the system.
