Women whose sons have been im
prisoned at Holmesburg have re
ported cases of ill-treatment te E.
M. Hackney, probation officer of
Quarter Sessions Court.
Mr. Haekney has, in many cases,
taken up these complaints with the
Judges who were respensible for the
commitment eY the convicts com
plaining. In seme instances, where
the convicts have been found te be
ill or deserving of parole, Mr. Hack'
ney has succeeded in having the men
aided or freed.
"Many mothers have come te me
with tales of cruelty te their sons
in the County Prison," said Mr.
Hackney. "These cases were care
fully investigated by my office. In
several cases I found that the com
plaints regarding the feed, solitary
confinement and punishment for
talking were true.
"In such instnnccs I Tinve called the
attention of the trial Judge te them
nnd have had paroles granted. Right
here let me say that fewer than 3 per

from the county prison break parole.

"I de net want te assume the pesi

stating what I think should be done
te give convicts a cbance. Several
years age. us the result of many com
plaints regarding conditions In the
county prisons, bjjth Holmesburg and
Meyamensing, I decided te de some
thing. "In my report te the Beard of Judges
for three years ending November 1,
1017, I contrasted the way in which
prisoners in the Eastern Penitentiary
wcre treated and the manner in which
tliev wcre handled In Meyamensing und
Holmesburg prisoners. In my report
" 'Much could be done te better the
condition of these confined in Moya Meya

tee, by extending the period of exer
cise. In Improving ventilation, by keep
