555. During the year but little has been done in photographing criminals. I had reserved the major part of my grant for the special purpose of having all Burwars in their villages photographed. I offered to share the expense of having this done with the North-Western police; but when I discovered that the experiment was to be undertaken solely at my expense, no portion of the cost being defrayed by the North-Western police, I withdrew from the arrangement. I am now in correspondence with New York photographers regarding an inexpensive method of taking likenesses, which I hope to put in force during the present year. The stock of photographs ending 31st December 1881 is as follows:
 
Cheats4
Coiners10
Poisoners6
Kayests136
Nutts6
Bedias257
Pickpockets8
Burwars120
Oudhias6
Mochees - cattle poisoners105
