Congress in 1887, is issued from the press in the latter part of the year 1889, two years after the adjournment of that memor able meeting. The reason for this delay has been the want of funds in the treasury of the National Prison Association, and the unwillingness of its officers to incur a debt. In the meantime the Boston volume has been given to the public. It was thought best to use the money collected at Boston, in 1888, to publish the volume for that year immediately, rather than to postpone its publication and inaugurate a habit of delay, which would mate rially impair the usefulness of the Congress. Since then, the liberality of our friends has furnished means for printing the Toronto proceedings, and also the proceedings of the Nashville Prison Congress, which will assemble in the capital of Tennessee, November 1889. It is hoped that a similar disappointment will not again have to be borne by the Association.
