CONVICT LABOR- REFORM.
The method of employing the convicts
In the 6tate penitentiaries in order to
recompense the state for their maintain
ance is a serious matter. The fact that
recently this question was a political is
sue does not confine it to the narrow
limits of partisan - politics. It is too
grave a matter to be so treated. There
S3 not now, nor hu9 there ever been any
doubt that the present system might be
improved, and it was with this view that
The Chronicle started the idea of a jute
sack factory in the penitentiary. The
employment of cheap convict labor in
several lines of industry had destroyed
by unfair competition the same industry
pursued by honest and self-respecting
mechanics. A careful review of all the
conditions does not encourage a belief
that the convicts can be utilized to pre
pare material for roads. The difficulty
of such a plan is that the sale of the
material would not be assured. To em
ploy them on the roads would be attend
ed with heavy risks and greatly increase
expenses. The contractsystetn is wrong,
as has been shown in Illinois, where
the product of the penitentiary was so
great in one or two lines that it swamped
the market, and was disastrous to labor
and trade alike. Intelligent members of
the legislature will have to handle this
question with good judgment and a care
ful consideration of the welfare of all
concerned, and from our standpoint the
bag factory offers less objection than
anything that can fce named. The jute
sack factory is not an experiment; it
has been satisfactorily tested in Walla
"Walla. To set the matter of cost at rest
the Union Journal says :
"The legislature of Washington terri
tory, by act approved February 1 , 188S,
(page 1G4, laws 18S7-8), appropriated
$25,000 for a jute mill at the peniten
tiary. By virtue of this law, Col. F. J.
.Parker, then a penitentiary commis
sioner, went to California to inquire
into the manufacture of jute bags.
About all Col. Parker did was to re
ceive from the California grain bag ring
solid reasons for reporting to the legisla
tnre on December 7th, 1889. that a jute
mill "could not be made a profitable
concern to the territory." The legisla
ture of 1889-90 was so impressed by the
report of Col. Parker, that on February
18, 1890, it appropriated $25,000 "addi
tional to that already appropriated for"
a jute mill, (page 25, laws 1SS9-90), and
continued the appropriation of $25,000
by the territorial legislature, by an act
approved March 27, 1890, (1889-90, page
16.) The legislature of 1891 appropri
ated $100,000 "in addition to the money
already appropriated" to cover the cost
of the jnte mill. (Laws 1891, page 20.)
Any school boy who adds the three ap
propriations together, and they are all
that have been made for the establish
ment of the gute mill, will find they
make $150,000 and no more."
The assessor of Gilliam county tells
why he did not assess mortgages, in a
note the state board of equalization.
"This county has been out the state tax
on a great many mortgages heretofore
and as the county court of this county
and myself fail to find any law under
which collections of mortgage tax can he
forced, bo under instructions from the
said court I did not assess them for this
year." The state board may consider
itself stumped. The board has power to
equalize, but not to make assessments,
and on this peculiar occasion there
seems to be nothing to equalize. We
agree with the Journal clearlvi a county
cannot collect one half of the taxes
assessed to mortgages, on account of no
fault of the county, but owing to a de
fect in the law of the state, the county
should not bo compelled to pay over to
the state the amount of its levy on the
full mortgage assessment. The law pro
vides that the sheriff shall assess what
property the assessor misses, and Gilliam
county will be none the loser because
mortgages have been omitted from the
assessment roll. The state will lose its
Bhare of the tax, but that is not the
fault of the county.
It is understood that the big cruiser
heretofore unnamed will be named the
Minneapolis, and the new battleehip the
Iowa. Westward the coarse of naval
nomenclature takes its way. A popular
vote is to determine which young lady is
to have the honor of christening the
Minneapolis. In order to secure' Min
nie, St. Paul girls are ruled out of the
contest. Minneapolis will do the hand
some thing by the cruiser fortunate to
be named after her. , It is a pretty sen
timent this of naming the vessels of the
new navy after the various cities.
