be given economic evaluation as prisoners of society.
- (And, signed by BeVnarr Macfkdden, in the issue of the
;New York Graphic of May 25, under the heading, "A Much
Needed Prison - Reform,'" . appefars the ollowing editorial
article:). . . ' : '
That bur prison system needs reforming fcr not 'disputed. ,
1 The greatest difficulty lies iff securing the reform. 1
-'i One of the evils of our present prison system lies In the manner
In which it gives the product of the prisoner's labor to some one else
and permits his family to suffer.
'' We may be justified in punishing lawbreakers, but we are surely
not justified in punishing their. families., - ,
. Often the greater suffering falls upon the innocent fajnily. "
... .I'i The prisoner Is forced to work. J
He works hard. , k
s The product of his labor is disposed of. t
-' But" his family has no share in the proceeds. '
.' The federal government has taken a long step In the right direc
r' Hon in Its,Jrison at Leavenworthr Kan. j ....
- They bAve opened a new mUUon. dollar factory "there. .
f' The convicts will make shoes for the army and navy. . ,
. ' The factory? can turn out about three thousand pair of shoes per
dayfandwiU, hundred eonvicts.-?- . at a?
;4 In the case of married men these wages wlll .be sent to their fam
ilies to assist In their maintenance. ,
If the convict has no family or no one depending upon him for
nnnnrt h nonev will be reserved for hint until his release.
'. This is an approach toward a common sense method of handling

We have come a long, way in this respect since Uhe middle, ages.
5t we have not advanced far enougn. , , ; '
We are still far from treating convicts like human beings. , We do
not treat thetn In a manner that is calculated to turn them away from
-crime. - ; . -.- .... . . . - )'-.
:i And to show . that we ourselves - do not have any faith , in the
-reforming power of our convict system, we refuse to have anything
to do with the released prisoner. . i . " ' ' i
I Often he is literally forced-to crime to "get by." ' - "
The next step we should undertake should be to abolish capital
'punishment. : . '.':v- l"'" . ;
, Instead of death sentence the man to prison, for .life, f
, ..... Then, in prison, make bis labor contribute to the support of his
- own family it he has one, and to the support of the family of his
victim if he or the has such.
" To hang a murderer relieves him of all further responsibility. '
' lie is gone .; . , '

"lett to suffer, ' -Tl .', ' " ' " ';". : . . " ; ::

Passage of ilf; Would Beher
fit Mancm County to Ex
tent of $115,000
Editor StaCesman:
Marion county has prospects of
receiving ,a refund of . $100,000
from the federal government on
account of taxes which have been
lost to the -county by reason of
the federal government: having in
1915 withdrawn frpm the" South
ern Pacific company's land grant
portions . of that grant, and r to
further receive from othe federal
government, ' approximately $15,-
uou v annually-? in lien of taxes
which Marion county -wou!d - re
Ceive from the S. P. Co. If th
latter company stUl held title to
the lands above mentioned.
The total refnnd to all of the
counties, of Western t)regon will
amount to approximately 5.000.-
uoo, covering taxes lost for the
past 'eleven .years, during: which
time these .lands have been with
drawn from taxation as a result
of the federal government's ? ac
tion; and the total annual pay
ment to" all of these counties In
me tuture will amount to ap
proximately $500.000.-nn til thet
lands are sold by the government
under the Chamberlain-Ferris act
at; which; time. v of course, the
lands, will again ' become taxable,
the. counties . receive their reve
nues directly -therefrom.'
A delegation of about 15 men
from these "western Oregon coun
ties went, to Washington some time
ago and spont considerable time
and a great deal of effort in an
endeavor to ; have congress make
the above mentioned refunds and
compensation to the counties of
western Oregon in lien of the taxes
which have been and are . being
lost by -reason of the withdrawal
of the lands from, the Southern
Pacific company title. One mem
ber cf the delegation is still in
Washington following the matter
House bill 11329 has been nasa
eel through the house of represen
tatives," and senate bill 3 2 5 5 is
now before the senate for consid
eration. The opposition to the bill
will naturally come 1n the senate
from the eastern senators. Our
own senators are, of course, doing
all within their power to have the
bill passed, as are most, if -not
aU, of tho western Senators.
One of ; the -members of then
above mentioned delegation, Mr.
H. JU Walther, of Medford. who
supplied me with the above in
formation, advises 'that'--any one
in western Oregon who knows
an eastern senator owes it as a
duty to his state to write to such
Senator or senators and urge that
the, above mentioned senate : bill
No. 3255 be. passed in justice to
the citizens of the counties of
western Oregon who have been,
and are being, heavily penalized in
the matter of additional tax bur
den thrust upon them by reason of
the above mentioned lands having
been .withdrawn from the tax
rolls. ,x -.'". v
" I am sure we all concur with
Mr. Walther In thinking that such
letters should-be written, and 1
hope you will see fit to call the
matter to the attention of your
readers and add your influence
to get the above mentioned letters
written. ; ' " y-
' I know you have published in
formation regardinjc this- matter
from time to time, but It seems-
that now is the time for - action
on the part of the citizens of west
ern Oregon who are In a portion
to add their influence to the work
which the above- mentioned dele
gation has already done, by writ-1
ing the Above 'mentioned letters
to the eastern' senators. I --f ll"

she was determined to become an

her life's work. And long before'
she was able to climb upon a pia

with delight at her technique.
Then after- gaining the age of ma

the Rin-Tln-Tln scries- of . pictures
will be shown at the, Oregon thea

a picture . of thrills,- romance - and
comedy, but especially ot thrills.
Undoubtedly It is the most excit

and Warner Bros., the producers,
have been especially fortunate in
obtaining good pictures for this
sensational dog star.
' "Below the . Line" was written
and adapted to the screen' by
Charles A. Loguel It tells the
story of a vicious pit-fighting dog
in a small southern village. The
dog's master, a village : boy," has
won ' the . animal's . affections
'through, tender treatment. When
the boy gets into trouble, the dog's
fighting blood " Is once more
aroused. The climax comes .with
a fight between . RIn-Tih-Tin . and
a pack of bloodhounds that carries
the. thrills to fever heat.
The dog star .has never bfeen
better. From the time., he Is
dumped out of a 'crate when be
ing transported through the vil
lage on a train to the moment of
his blood-thumping fight,

instinct for, the proper effect. Me
is humorous, tender, strong, unre
