born. Other investigators find among them so large a proportion of 

individuals deviating from the normal that they are inclined to place 

prostitutes generally among one or other of the abnormal classes.[187] 

 

Baumgarten, in Vienna, from a knowledge of over 8000 prostitutes, 

concluded that only a very minute proportion are either criminal 

or psychopathic in temperament or organization (_Archiv fuer 

Kriminal-Anthropologie_, vol. xi, 1902). It is not clear, 

however, that Baumgarten carried out any detailed and precise 

investigations. Mr. Lane, a London police magistrate, has stated 

as the result of his own observation, that prostitution is "at 

once a symptom and outcome of the same deteriorated physique and 

decadent moral fibre which determine the manufacture of male 

tramps, petty thieves, and professional beggars, of whom the 

prostitute is in general the female analogue" (_Ethnological 

Journal_, April, 1905, p. 41). This estimate is doubtless correct 

as regards a considerable proportion of the women, often 

enfeebled by drink, who pass through the police courts, but it 

could scarcely be applied without qualification to prostitutes 

generally.
