AUTHOR'S PREFACE

THE introduction of labour colonies, with a view to solving the tramp problem, has occupied me now for some twenty years. The first time that I wrote on the subject1 I ventured to suggest that the labour colony system would never be complete until to the forced labour colonies then in operation in Holland, Belgium, and Germany were added free labour colonies, so that every person found wandering on the highways or the streets without means of support could be inexpensively provided for--in the former if in need of discipline, in the latter if a blameless victim of industrial conditions. About the time when I was writing, Switzerland had come to a similar conclusion though I did not learn of it until two years ago.

I have visited all the colonies in Holland and Belgium; the colony of Merxplas I have visited twice; the second time in the company of Mr. Henri Monod, late Director
