The idea put forward by Mr 0 Callaway is that the .part payment of fines shall be accepted by the State, in lieu.of an eq ial proportion of imprisonment. By way of illus. tration, it is pointed out that under the system as it exists at present in Victoria a man may have been fined .5, with a month's imprisonment in default, for having been drunk and disorderly. He may ba able to pay C4. but not 15. The State will not take the £4 and reduce his term ol imprisonment accordingly. It keeps the unfurtna:e man. in gaol for the whole month, even if 'he is only a shilling short .in the sum required, If the same mran serves, say, three weeks of thef mbnth's sentence he has s'ill to pay up the [5 fine, should he th...
