CHAPTER III
LABOUR COLONIES

IN Holland, where labour colonies were originally started, there is very little effort to-day made to reform the vagabond. The scheme originally proposed by General van den Bosch included a plan of reformation by slowly spreading the population of labour colonies in homes of their own upon the land. The example set us by Holland though not beyond criticism must not be underestimated. In the first place, the merit of original initiative belongs to Holland; in the second place, Holland has demonstrated that by this system the streets and highways can be rid of tramps, and that the cost of doing so through the agency of labour colonies is relatively small.

But in two respects the Dutch colonies fall short. They are not self-supporting and they have practically abandoned the effort to reform.
