As Others See It
Crimes against life are not all
committed by outlaws and ban
dits. It has come to light that in
certain of the Southern States a
brutal system of convict peonage
has placed hundreds of men in
camps where many of them have
literally been worked and beaten
to death. This has been done in
the name of law, by officials op
erating in collusion with private

If there is in our times an out
standing exhibition of the selfish,
treacherous, ruthless spirit of
capital described in James, this
would appear to be it. The whole
system appears to have been de
veloped for the convenience of
lumbermen and others whose en
terprises are conducted under
conditions that make securing of
labor by normal methods difficult
and expensive. Men do not care

to work in fever-infested swampb
with water and mud to their waist
and with danger of serious in
fection from even slight abrasions
of the skin, without commensur
ate remuneration. A convict,
though, in the grip of the law,
has no choice. He can be bought
from the authorities for a small
sum, driven into the swamps, and
lashed to his task like a slave.
If he rebels or attempts to es
cape, he can be killed with im
punity, the same as if he resisted
arrest or broke jail, although his
actual poition in the social econ
omy is that of a laborer making
profits for his employer, rater
than of an offender suffering for
his crimes.
And this practice of contvict
slavery is not of late and sudden
growth. More than twenty years
ago investigation revealed con
ditions as bad as those which have
lately shocked the reading public.
But instead of reform following
these exposures, the matter was
hushed up, supposedly because
convict labor was too profitable
to be dispensed with. It is this
element of private gain that
makes the whole picture so
sordid and that adds point to
the protest of such conservative
sheets as the Washington Star
aginst "the spectacle of men who
have been caught in petty offeses
farmed out to private individuals
and concerns for their laor; of
men-and boys, reardless of color
or condition, beaten into helpless
ness and even to death; of public
officials hushed into silence; of
infiuentaial citizens contriving
ways and means of continuing
the abominable practices, with a
thin disguise and a show of

And the Star adds that there
is nothing but evil in "the system
of renting out those who have
been taken in the net of the law,
a net that it is evident, has been
flung unduly far and wide in or
der to catch the gretest possible
number of potential laborers for
the contract bosses.' '
It is this spirit of callous
indifference toward the rights of
other men. where personal gain
is involved, that gives rise to
the capitol and labor problem
