PROBABLY YOU MET THEM
, ; Four men were "dressed out" of the Oregon penitentiary
yesterday! That is, they were released, their terms having
expired" "" i ' ' -;
vAnd probably, you met them.
' Probably, because, once their backs were turned to the
grim walls, they were again members of society, Jf or good or
for Hi. ; ;:.rv-?5;:,r .- ?:; ' - ; -l
. ' They were clothed as the ordinary man you meet on -the
street; 'v In garments that were clean, and some of them new.
They were like other men,' excepting for 'the memories-they
carried away from the prison, and the experiences they gained
while they either brooded or lioped behind the locked doors.
& Two of the men had worked in the state flax department,
the one which pays a daily, wage to workers, from 50 cents a
day for.the majority to as high as $1 to $1.25 a day for the
scutchers. 'These two men who hid worked in the flax indus
try: went out with the balance of their earnings which they
had not sent to their families plus $5 and the suits on their
The other two, who had not worked in the flax industry,
went away. with the suits on their backs and the $5 which the
state had given them; the amount given 'to each discharged
"man, and has been from time immemorial.
V r The suits are all. good. They are made at the prison, at
& cost ta the state of $6.25 to $6.50 each, though they would
cost in a 'store or tailor shop outside $40 to $45. And each
man is furnished good underclothing, anr! a hat.
Some of them go out with "fish suits, shoes etc. What
are fish suits? They; are the, suits worn in by convicted men.
The new arrivals are to their fellows all fish-fpoor fish. The
clothing worn In is thoroughly cleaned and repaired and kept
in reacuness ior outgoing men. oorae ox mem are, oi course
Very tine suitsl J Everything is saved at the penitentiary
-. The object of this screed is to call the. attention of mem
bers of the legislature, and others, to the difference between
the twonien who "had worked -in the flax plant' -and the two
whohadibt-il...J-.:,U-i: L-'-.v- ;V - ; ':'J - rf
The first , two had either a comfortable stake with which
to start life, bver,r or, quite as important, or more important,
they had their families (tfie innocent sufferers) who have
,been held together partly through their earnings ; giving them
a home and a starting point front which to regain their places
in society which they lost when the. bolts and bars clicked
against them when they were "dressed in" to the penitenti
ary - (Threewere dressed in Monday.)
v;:- This is n advantage of untold value in favor of the two
first men, in giving them a chance and an incentive to go
. straight. It makes up an immense difference in their favor,
against the' possibility of their becoming a prey on society;
becoming recidivists, or "two time losers; second and third
termers, and more. Against the'possibility of high court costs
to be paid by the people who bear the burden of taxation.
As to the two men who went out yesterday with a suit of
clothes and $5 each, what of them? Where shall they go?
"Wliat shall they do ?- The $5- wilt last them only a day or two,
