forward at heavy expense. . It costs
money to build up a political machine
and keep It running. A usual, a largo'

the. city, arid county treasuries, so that
the brunt of the battle falls upon the
long-suffering taxpayer. , ; ? :
The, Mitchell faction has control of
practically all of the city, county and
federal patronage, and this powerful
weapon Is being used with great effect.
Scores of active machine workers have
found employment 'in the public service

for the success of th.e Mitchell faction.

to do this work. In the T. M. C. A.

attempt to . work through two periods

Labor:" - -?
The question of the employment of
ttate and other prisoners has ' been ex
tensively discussed. .
First That justice' to the state and to
the taxpayer requires that ( the convict
should. If possible,, earn the expense of
his maintenance. .
Second That ordinary humanity and a
due regard for the best, Interests of .the
prisoners requires that they should be
made to work and that this work should"
be made as engrossing and interesting as
possible.' . '
Third That the contract system under
which the work of the prisoner Is hired
out at the prison to manufacturers Is
probably - the most lucratlce In Its Im
mediate results to the state of any sys
tem of employing convict labor: but-
. Fourth That it Is the most harmful
system to the prisoner himself, to the
free laborer outside and to the state that
can be adopted. '';
- Fifth That no general system of em
ploying all convicts and prisoners in use
ful work can "be made Immediately and
of.. Itself pecullarlly profitable to the
state. i- '"
Sixth That - convict labor never' be
employed In competition with free labor.
- The main difficulty that .confronts us is
the difficulty of obtaining honest and
efficient .prison administration and man
agement coupled with secure tenure ot
office administration so that large plans
covering many years my be adopted and
carried 'out. . ..'. v.. ;'
1 Presuming by a bold .. flight of the
Imagination that the city of Portland and
Us council and officers and thl state of
Oregon and its legislature and officers
are honestly ' desirous of employing con
victs to the best Interests of the state.
It would not be difficult to devise a
scheme that would accomplish this pur
pose. The city of Portland Is peculiarly
situated and nothing would be easier
than to discard the descredlted old rock
pile and put the men at some work that
would be of some real and permanent
advantage to the city.
Any one who knows of the magto
change that was wrought In the Jefferson
street road from Sixteenth street to the
reservoirs by the relief work that waa
put upon It In the hard winter of 1893
by the city board of charities can ap
preciate how simple and practical a
scheme It would be to employ - prison
labor In the same way.

Had the state of Oregon JO years ago

to learn the full suocess of the dash, as
an indication of the efficiency ot the

th question whether there are Japan

lack of discipline and efficiency in the

The strategic situation remains un

The British could readily checkmate

Hong Kong they could cut off the
French at Saigon, and from 'Wel-Hai-Wel
