The subject which I have selected for my Inaugural Address, viz., " Juvenile Crime, and its Prevention," is a branch, and I think the most important branch, of the subject of Prison Reform, which has recently attracted so much attention. The publication during last summer of the admirable series of articles in the Times newspaper on "Prison Life and Administration," and the meeting of the International Prison Congress at Washington during the autumn, have both contributed to attract the attention of the public to the matter; and the time is therefore propitious for an appeal to all who really desire an improvement in our social conditions to really interest themselves in this subject. It is a difficult and unattractive problem to deal with, and we need for its solution the best brains that are available, as well as the active assistance of very many more people than now can be got to give their help towards the amelioration of the lot of those whom youth and inexperience have led into crime.
