tng and Instructive Illustrated lecture on
convict road building at tho Arlington
club last night. Mi. Hill has spent
years in the study of good roads and
has demonstrated thoroughly the value
of such roads In different parts of the
state of Washington.
In tho matter of convict labor, Mr.
Hill showed both by pictures and fig
urea the remarkable work of the con
victs on tho state road which was pro
jected from British Columbia south to
the Columbia river at Vancouver and by
way of the Columbia and Walla Walla
to Spokane, and of the other roads trav
ersing the state In different directions.
By means of thi labor and of a state
system of roads. Mr. Hill demonstrated
far better roads can be built at a small
per cent of the coat of the same work
by tho present syatem of contract aad
county work. In on place on the state
road near Lylo he Illustrated a stone fill
of 110 feet long, lttf feet deep and It
feet thick that was built at a cost of
13809 which, according to tho North
Bank railroad figures would have cost
nearly 840,000. This waa but a aamplo
of tho difference In cost of convict
and contract labo-; Ho said that the
convicts were healthier, happier and far
more industrious than when at work
making Jut bag a in tho penitentiary at
Walla Walla. The pictures of ' their
camps showed models of cleanliness.
All work waa done by convlcta, many
of whom had formerly turned their tal
ents In similar work to criminal opera
tions, the safe-blower handled the dy
namite, tho burglar made and sharpened
the tools, the baker and cook .took
charge of the kitchen. Army men were
placed In charge of thera and the disci
pline waa excellent The hope of early
release under tho Indeterminate sen
tence also gave them ambition to do
In closing, Mr. Hill showed views of
scenery In . Oregou and Washington
which could easily bo reached by a sys
tem of good roads and compared them
with pictures of scenery in Swltierland
and tho advantage of reaching the
places of Interest there.
