- THE GAZETTE,. MONTREAL, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1915. yOL CXLVllI. No. 291 1 SAYS MENTALLY DEFICIENTS 40,000 Less Than 2,000 Receiving any Care in an Institution in Canada DR. A. G. MORPHY SAYS Urges "Ellis Island" at Que-bee Where Immigrant Might be Detained and v Observed Statistics prove beyond doubt the intimate connection between crime and feeble-mindedness, and they also show that a largo proportion at the feeble-minded and " delinquent are foreign-born, said Dr. A. G. Morphy, lecturing last' night, before the St. James Literary Society on "The problem ot the Feeble-Minded." Feeble-minded immigrants, said the speaker, are infinitely less desirable than those suffering from physical disease, for the latter naturally tend toward extinction, whereas the former tend to perpetuate their kind. Consequently the first of the several measures which he urged should be adopted to meet the situation as set forth in his paper was tne cre-iition at Quebec of a Canadian "Ellis Island," where immigrants might be. if necessary, detained and kept under observation by trained and fully qualified psychiatrists. , After giving an account of the characteristics of mental deficiency, and explaining how it differed from insanity, he 'remarked that public Interest in the question had lately been aroused by the placing of the whole subject upon a scientific basis' through the establishment of certain tests by which it is now possible to measure the mental powers, a fortunate thing, for the question is vital to the whole Dominion. ; 40,000 IN CANADA. ' There are In Canada, said the speaker, 40,000 mentally deficient persons, and less than 2,000 of these are receiving any care in an institution. In the province of Quebec there is only one institution for the purpose of looking after the mentally deficient, and in Ontario there is ako only one. 1 statistics for New York State and snow that one in every 250 is mentally' deficient, and in England a Royal Commission has established aooui jie same percentage. StartlinC WerA tha fifrnrAa eumtaA In order to establish the connection "".cm mime anu leeote-minuea-ness, and they were still further enforced when the speaker said that in any municipal court if 10 per cent, of the offender wpm ffahmir,riaA that 10 per cent, was responsible for 50 per cent, of the crime committed. A survey of the Jails, maternity hospitals for unmarried mothers, reformatories and homes for Juven-!la offenders, showed that on an average ttt least 25 per cent, were ieeoiemmaea, ana some were insane. ; ,s ... . The feeble-minded are in great need of supervision. for they we easily influenced, .whether for good or for evil, and especially for evil. Besides a Canadian "'Ellis' Island," Dr. Morphy advocated compulsory education. and special classes or schools for the feeble-minded; compulsory education for the reason that vrltVt,it I u , - . ..v ......

AN OPPORTUNE TASK As Society Solidifies Out of Present Chaos fa Will it be For Generations ' "So fcfr as the lay body of tha church is concerned, we have been doing business in a tea-spoon fashion," said Mr. G. B. Nicholson, M.P, for East Algoma, in addressing a large gathering at the Windser hall-last night , in connection with - the Anglican Forward Movement. ' Mr. Nicholson's plea was for1 a greater and a wider conception of the duties of the laymen of tire church, a call to cease the "dime and nickel" policy. Hitherto, said Mr. Nicholson, "onlv the fringe of the wealth of the church had been touched. Some people referring to the forward movenjent said the time was not opportune, that if should have been before the war or some other time. He believed that notv was the appointed time, for the world had never been in such a state of unrest as today. No one could venture to say what the next week or next month would bring forward in regard to the, social and economic conditions of the world. Society today, said Mr. Nicholson, is in a molten state, and In whatever condition society solidified so it would remain tor some generations to come, until unite cases low suit. .. granted; costs to foi- N.

If out of the chaos society settles into socialism and unbelief the next two or three geherations will go with their faces in that direction, out, it out or me chaos society set its face God-ward then will tlio world go forward God-ward. It would be history repeating itself. It was for the laymen to see that the work 'was not left to the bishops and priests. Some one had told him that the cause of the unrest was because the world was looking for Christ. TASK FACING CHURCH. Mr. Nicholson dealt specially with the task which faced the Anglican church in taking over the work among the Indians fiitherto carried out by the Church Missionary Society of the English church in the vast regions of northern Ontario and im ffrpBt TInHsnn'a Ttav districts gen erally. He told something of what had been accompnsnea in me last ao years by the church missionary among tho Indians when they had come in a sailing vessel Into Hudson's Bay, and baptised all the Indians. ' DUTY OF WHITE MEN. , ' He spoke ot the duty that devolves upon the white men of Canada to look after the Indians. Some people said that the Indians were indolent. iuhrte,a(- and Immoral. He denied that as regards them all, pointing to many instances to snow me unw traits among the Indiana, of their aid In h.. T.rnv.

Mr. Nicholson's experiences has been largely among Indians, and he told of intimate things of their conaitions wnica iwero ui interest to his audience.
