Description

Excerpt from On the Repression of Vagrancy and Indiscriminate Almsgiving: With a Statement as to the Result of "the Dorset System" In the many attempts which have been made to deal with this most difficult question, two very important points appear to have been generally overlooked. First. That besides the vagrant there is another party in the transaction who is more to blame than the vagrant himself, viz. The charitable British public, and therefore that any scheme which deals solely with the former, and ignores the action of the latter, will as certainly fail in producing any permanent effect, as all such schemes have hitherto failed.
