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.
