The nineteenth Year-Book (1894) of the New York State Reformatory reflects, even at the first glance, the period of trouble from which the Reformatory has only lately emerged. It is a very plain and unpretentious document, without even a single illustration. Although the charges which have been brought against the Superintendent, Mr. Brockway, do not affect the special characteristics of the institution, i.e., the indeterminate sentence and the system of physical and psychic treatment now familiar to readers of this Journal, they tended to throw discredit upon the Reformatory, and moreover random and ignorant statements of the case appeared from time to time in England, even in influential medical journals. As the matter has cow been fully investigated and finally settled, it may be worth while briefly to set forth the results.
