St. Louis, Bert. 21. Senator Scburz deliv
ered a long and carefully prepared speech in
an audience tilling tbe Temple, last night, ou
National and Slate Ml'ilrs. His lateral, co on
llnance were a repctittcm of lo pnscuted
by him In the Jennie ami elsewhere. He
poke at considerable ieuir'b on the present
disordered condition ot stfilrslu the South,
particularly In Loulsl.nl.
While commeudlinr. toe notion of the Ad
ministration In Icudiui: ha aid to the iirnuipi
suppression of the ieoi, he goes back, toitie
orlKin of tlio insurrtciloii, which he tinds In
a conspiracy 10 cream .1 Mam government uy
the Federal powers. This ihe nrlidnal
crime which furnished an example iin.l pro
vocation for these that followed it. It was
the vicious outgrowth nl the sstnimtlu tie
liy Federal oUlce-holdera In the South, of the
power tholr oIUcts gavo them to shape Mate
affairs In the Interest of their party. This
high usurpation was virtually sanctioned by
the neglect of Congress lo reprove it and set
aside. While on lue other band It does
not stippiess tho responsibility of the
Southern peoplo for their own tumbles by
their lallure to put dowu Ku-klux outrages
that have 1 rokeu out Irom time to time, and
uulh the lawless rutlaus that have luleaied
the d.lferetit sections.
Bui danger uuw Is something worse than
Ku klux lawlessness or popular anarchy.
It Is tho anarchy or Kwer mid the lawless
ness of authority, llo Insists on the one
liaud that Congress shall undo the wrong
done to Louisiana people under federal sane
lion , and ou the other that Ihe While
Aleii's Leagues In the South shall be dis
banded, as well aj all cliques and combina
tions based ou antagonism of the races, lie
warned tho negroes to take Individual politi
cal action, ranging themselves accordlug to
personal preference or judgment with either
parly, so that they may command respect
and protection from both.
Finally he foresets lu tho passago of the
Civil Ulgbts Dill tho utter annihilation of the
public school system now sustained by the
whiles of the South, and believes this would
be the greatest blow that could bo aimed at
tho progress of tho negro race.
Chicago, Sept. 21. The action of tho Exe

Your correspondent J, II, L , Is nit In
quirer after Information concerning tho fig
ures of tho SiiMirlnteudentof tho Peniten
tiary. Such a disposition Is commendable
and If ho knows no more about tho figures
lhau bis communication shows, It is highly
necessary he should boforo rushing Into type
again, take a lesson lu single entry hn Is
proficient in double. He says the report
errs lu charging tho Slato with tho cost nf
material for brick makiug, aud then charg
ing the brick to the Stato. In this ho him
self Is In error that tho report does any such
thing, and we ask hint for proof.
Tbe prison charges itself with what mats
rial the State by vouchers, furnishes, and lu
turn charges the State with what brick is
dellvored to it at the regular selling rates.
The prison Is entitled to tbe proper credit
whether they bo sold to tho Stato or Individ
uals. Thoro Is no charge to the Stalo for con
vict labor In brick making. In the Quar
terly reports to the Secretary of Stato, pages
40 to (17 Inclusive, of Superlntoiidf nt's report,
is stated tbe number of days works per
formed on the brick yard, In compliance
with the law, but Is has nothing whatever
to do Willi earnings of the prison as set forth
In tho exhibits of earnlngsand expenditures.
These show tint tho earning of thu yard
have been, brick sold, furnished thu Capitol
and on band, about f'.7,000 ; your corres
pondent herein displays bis tloublu entry by
calling It fiM.OOO.
All the earnings nf tho prison nro fooled
up at &7il,02il 77, exhibit II. Thesn comprise
thu gain on meruhaudlsn mvoun', published
in detail In Hoport, consisting of brick sold
and furnished Capitol, keeping U. S. prison

contractors and permanent Improvements
about the prison, In all .'41,075 40; for produce
raised on the farm uvor and abovn what has
been used, brick and material on hand, mak
ing In all tho above total of f 7tl,02il,77. Wo
contend with J. II. L., and are willing to
leave the question to any business account
ant that these are all proper and legitimate
earnings, and aro nut doubled up in any
shape. If these articles were all sold for
cash, (and tbey are all legitimate articles of
merchandise and saleable at the prices put
upon 'hem.) we would ask If thecasb In tho
State Treasury would not show that the
prison had earned that amount T This
amount nf 170,028.77 bas cost the State iwhh
natty In vouchers, faujj.'jil. she not only
has that amount returned to her, but has
f0,20l.5l mom. She has paid It on vou hers

In all candor Is not the State that much
richer that, after keeping her convicts she
baa ajust claim against the U. S. forfoyxiO,
125,000 worth of material and
labor In her
Capitol, a debt of 12,000 paid off, supplies on
hand, a water power, aud the grounds cleared,
grubbed and ready foreoltlvatlon 7
On tbe subject of labor are the prices
charged greater than the same would demand
outside, or is It leas valuable T But says J,
H. L., be leases this same labor at 5oc to
podd and others. If a farmer bas a lot. of
potatoes on band that be cannot sell at a fair
price, will be allow t-bem to rot, or get what
be can for tbero T Tbe Superintendent has
mora labor than be can profitably use, tied
op as be Is bribe regulations, and If not sold
Is 'waste. Because be leases a portion at
w a day It dor not follow tbat work done
grabbing Is not worth f I SO per day,
Tais article U alreadT Ions;.1 I may refer
to lbs aublect again and would ask J, II. L.
to study tbe "figures" with fairness.
Yours, Faih Putv,
J. 11. 1., lu Full- lMny.
With many thauks to Fair Play for hl
able and courteous answer to my isuumiiul-
cation nf former date, yet I cannot riceltn
his assurance that the earnings of the Prison
foot up Kt),02l77 without some oondltlnual
wonder. A Just claim against the L'nlttd
States for fil,4S5 Is a tanglblo thing, but will
Fair Play Inform us whether tho United
Stales expects and auree to pay that sum;
whether It Is not fa.icy price the Superlu
tondent places on board, similar to that he
places on labor. There arc eight I . S. con
victs In the prison, who average nbnut 20
mouths each, so the cst to tho I'nltcd Statts
wlllbu Jiistalmiit f.s iivM-k. Taking that
for granted will Fitr I'isv ivo us a better
Idea of tho products of tim ftrin; how iinny
vegetables atid hocsuiidclilekeusilieio were;
how much grain and foil and meats; also.
how much land was ciilllxnlcd. Tho llrt
four quarters show a total of 1.2M ila s plow
Ing, harrowing aud farm and garden work.
Tho last four quarters show only ;W0 days
work, which seems to bo guessed oil' lu
one lump. How camo (hero to be such a
I am not willing to receive that "gain on
merchandise account" at auy such sum as
$55,Mtt.:i7, because the facts stand out boldly
that the $75,000 appropriation has been spent,
and vouchers Issued for 811,127.22 morn.
Whom Is tho f -!,4istJ received for brick ?
Tho tX: for saddle trees? Have they
been paid Into tho Treasury as tho law
directs 7 I am willing to clm'fM tho Capitol
Commissioners with round sum ; Input a
ftlr price n the labor dune, ami Ihe Improve
ments inudo around tho prison, nn.l to allow
that coin ids labor has been made tiso of to
perhaps thu best advantage, but to see It
charged up at from 91 50 to M.P0 per dny,
Instead of 50.'ts, adds nothing to tho vrtluo of
tho report,; and thu fact that tho Stato has
$&1,000 lo pay for the pilson expenses slnen
IH73, stales ouo lu the face uftor all thoSiipcr
iuteudeiil's llgures are learned by heart, As
lo the charge nf Jl 50, J2 00 and $1 (HI per day
not being too much, will Fair Play opIaln
why tho lteMiit ukca so much pains to show
the wages hi which convict labor Is leased In
other Stales, averaging not over ItVts per
day, win u thu Superintendent places such
prices ou It hero In Oregon 7 Tho iiuiouut
of it Is that convicts do not, ou tho nvcragn,
maku as good laborers us the clan of coplo
who labor Industriously and krep out of
prison. All the world over convict lalsjr Is
at a discount, but for all that ll Is tho proper
thing to make a penitentiary self supirtlng.
Couut the actual work of tho convicts In
constructing Improvements at favts a day,
and then tho flginos will be fair play. Were
there no groceries, stores, or garden products
on band two years ago 7
What wo want to arrive at Is the actual
cash value of the necessary Improvements
made about the prison; tho actual cash value
ol tho material and labor furnished to the
State Capitol, In tho aggregato, aud then wo
can credit the prison with Its labors and pro
ducts and strike the balance. Some earnings
nf the penitentiary are reliable, but a large
amount nf the figure pointed loo with pride
by Fair Play, are like tho "chips and whet
stones" we hear mentioned lu metaphor, so
often, as convenient articles for trade. Wu
want more light. J. 11. L.
