The new road law which will be In
troudeej at the forthcoming session
of the legislature by Representative
Carnahan will shortly be put in shape
and submitted to the members of the
Tush club for suggestion. The law
will divide the county Into "road dis
tricts giving the county court author,
lty to alter the boundaries of the dis
tricts once a year. ' Il will provide for'
a general state road tax of S mills,
which shail be expended in the main,
tennnce of roads. Each district lll
U given the amount tnised by its tax
payers, and there will lie no apportion
ment, an la the case with school funds.
The several districts will be empowered
to vote any additional levy which may
be required for roads and a maximum
lax will he fixed In the bill. The levy.
Ing of road tnxe will be entirely taken
out of the hands of the county court.
It has been suggested that perhaps the
people of sevreal districts through
which a new proposed road might run
would not all agree to levy the neces
sary tax, but the framors of the bill
do not anticipate any difficulty on this
score. The school law works satisfac
torily, and the road law would prove
equally as efficient. A law such as
that proposed for Oregon Is in effect In
Washington and is snld to operate to
the satisfaction of taxpayers.

Hhjs Present Hymem In an Abuae
nd Would Point Out It
Frank S. Ingram, the Oregon prison
er who lost a limb at the time of the
sensational escape of Tracy and Mer
rill, and who was later ' pardoned by
Governor Oeer, "has interested himself
In road matters, particularly with ref
erence to the employment of convict la
bor on the highways of the state. In
gram believes that the people are being
mulcted under the present system of
using convict labor, and his letter on
the subject Is an interesting one. Borne
days ago a dispatch from Astoria tel
ling of tlw proposed new road law
which Represenaltlve-elect Carnahan
will intioduce at the corning session of
the legislature was printed in the Sa
lem Statesman. Ingram read II and
was prompted thereby to write Mr.
Carnahan. . His letter Is dated at Sa
lem and is as follows:
'In this morning's Btatesinan there
Is an article which I presume was
written by' you, and for the Interest of
the public in regardUo road building.
Having been raistd a farmer and ac
quired cxiierlence In other states where
good roads are made, I am quite 'in ex
pert In thu matter, and consequently
take a great deal of Interest In move
ments of the kind. Being a mechanic
I understand how to make the tools
with which to do the work.
"Seeing by Ihe rMer that you are a
member of tfhe legislature, there Is a
matter I wish to call to your attention,
owing to the Interest you seem to be
taking In the public welfare, and a
matter thai should be thoroughly look
ed Into. I refer lo convict labor on
roads. I recently had an interview
with County Judge Bcolt (of Marion
county) about this subject, and I found
him to be very much interested in it.
He had for some time been trying to
find out about convict labor, but had
not thought of me. I was able to tell
him many things he did not know. .
"Having been in prison for over 10
years, I know the place like a book.
and alt about convict labor and the
abuses that have been and are still be.
Ing made of it In the Interests of priv
ate individuals. Labor is sold now by
the state for 35 cents n day. when 50
cents would be little enough. The la
bor of many of the convicts who are
skilled workmen would be cheap at tl
to 12.60 per day.
"As 1 say, I know what convict la
nor Isf I worked nil over the prison
and consequently know whereof I
speak. I should like very much to
have an opportunity to take a commit
tee from the next legislature through
the penitentiary and explain the prison
from a convict's point of view. Then
I would have no doubt of your seeing
the waMe that la being made of the la
bor, at the expense of the Laxpryens,
who maintain the institution with large
appropriations. It occurs to me that
It is a very difficult matter for a body
of met: to legislate tor an Institution
about which they know very little.
This is a matter that should have your
attention regardless of politics or per
sons. "I am aware that Hits stove firm, In
order to get the labor as cheaply as
possible, makes the complaint that the
labor is inferior, and does not In any
way point out the good qualities of the
workmen. AH men who get Into pris
on are not morilly nnd physically as
bad as many people try to make them
appear. When men are cast into pris
on they become public property, and
should be worked in such ways as to
benefit the public, and to encourage
them to take their places again as bet
ter men, and not a menace to life and
"I have read many newspaper articles
upon good roads committees, and many
of them, to my mind, are written by
persons who never built a rod of road
In their lives. Wind work Is very
easy. I should like to take a gang
of onvlcts (say 25) on the road for 12
months mi show the people of the
state whit could be accomplished.
While I im lot identified with any
committees, I claim to be an expert at
Mr. Carnahan says that Ingram's
suggestion is not at all a poor one,
and. he expresses the opinion that Ore
gon's convict labor should be employ
ed In the construction of a 100-foot
road from the capljal to Fort Stevens,
In the interests if public protection.
Were a hostile fleet to take the forts
ut the mouth of the river they could
lie held Indefinitely with no better
means of transportation than those af
forded ut present, whereas a high
way such as Mr. Cumuhun suggests
would lve the Invaded a chance to re
enpt'ire the posts.
