They alept in a small .building on the
fair grounds, cooked their own mean
and worked entirely without guard.
t ivea Chance, Don't Abuse It.
t "Those boys certainly worked faith
iully They required no one to watcn
them' and they did a mighty good Job,
too. A soon as I saw they were in
earnest, and I had some doubts about
vslng them on the fair grounds. I gave
them every facility to live like men
Who were free and I do not regret it.
The work has been beneficial to the
men and to the atate. I am sorry those
oya will not be here to look at our
how when it opens. They were a
faithful lot and deserve a great deal or
credit for the way they have stuck to
'- pay Pro BAta, might on TJme.
' More remarkable, perhaps, than the
conduct of these men working about
the atate Institutions is the honesty
and faithfulness of It trusty paroles
Who are scattered over the atate work
ing for farmers liverymen, hotels or in
Other line of work. These men draw
the customary wages for tho work in
which they are engaged but pay over to
the state a clear 60 cents per day. This
every man has done on time. One of
these men is in eastern Oregon on a
stock ranch, some are In Salem, and
Others In various counties. The reason
for so trusting these men la generally
to allow them an opportunity to con
tribute to the support of families. Ap
preciating auch opportunities they have
.- been true in every Instance,
i In contrast with three-escapes under
the honor system, 2S breaks under the
Old guard system in 1909 stand out
on bold relief. After losing 26 men and
having many bad tights between guards
and convicts, the plan of working con
victs outside of the penitentiary walls

. i - Tt. ... v.c tt hMAltt In thtit vpflr the
number of men worked on the outside
Was much smaller- than the number
worked out now unaer me nonor uym
tem; in fact twice as many convicts
: are now working in tne opera, unsuara
kA a wnrkl4 nn th SUtsldS In 1909
yet the percentage of breaks Is only
ene-nintn as great.
How Xfew Parole taw Works.
, I Somewhat related in principle to Gov-
virnor West's honor system is the new
parole law, which went into effect May
20. With this law the parole board
came Into existence. This board has
worked hand in hand with the governor.
' The distinction between thiH law and
the West honor system is often con
fused In the public mind. The honor
system applies only to men who have
not served their minimum sentences and
frho are strictly in the prison. The
parole board deals With men who have
served out their minimum terms and
1 who are entitled to conditional release
from prison. When men go out under
this law they are required to report
regularly and not to leave the state
Without permission of the board. Only
.one man out of 41 thus paroled has
violated bis promises to the board.
This was a colored man, Bert Lowe.
Lowe left the state and went to Ta
coma. He is nw in the prison for his
folly. Jdhn Major, the negro now held
t Dallas charged with criminal as
sault was paroled ur.der the old law.
His case has no bearing on either the
honor system or the new parole law.

at the Portland Motor Car company's
