This paper is the outgrowth of an address delivered a few months since before a conference of the judges of the various Municipal and Police Courts of Connecticut. Upon them the State has cast the duty of passing in the first instance upon most charges of criminal conduct, and of inflicting the proper punishment for petty offences. They were assembled to consult as to the proper methods of judicial administration, and had expressed a wish to hear some discussion of the relations of penalty to crime.
