Th National Committer en Priaon La
bor Receive! Roporta From Variout
State Indicating That the Honor
System Produces Good Reeutta.
The prnethv or putting convicts on
their honor. espeluliy prisoner! who
nre nt work constructing or repairing
highways, has been started In several
states Mini Is m.vllng with much sue
cess, according to reports received ly
the national committee on prison hi
hor. North Dakota. Oregon. New .ler
scy. Michigan. Ohio mid I'olorado nre
unions the states where the honor sys
teni has been developed to Its highest
degree. I'mler the laws of North Du
kota the hoard of control may employ
convicts on the public highways, theli
expenses to he paid hy the respective
counties in which they work The law
stipulates that the prisoners perform
their duties under the supervision of ;
skilled laborers, who net Ms guards;
hut so far ns possible, the law Ue- ,
dares, the convicts are to be placed
on their h unr. Another feature of
North Dafc- ta"s prison laws U
worded i
as folio .'. j
"Kac!i -hurt time convict worked
uion s ii l state roads shall receive H ;
credit ii on his time of ten days for j
each thirty days that he shall faith I
fully and diligently work uimui saiil '
state roads, and in case of convicts i
servins life sentences such privileges :
shall be given them as in the Judgment j
of the warden is proier. but in case ;
that any convict fails to do faithful ;
and eJheieiit work or attempts to es
cape he shall forfeit all or us many of
said credits ns in the Judgment of the
warden shall be proper."
Of 270 convicts who were worked
under the honor system In Ohio only
eighteen less than 7 per cent attempt
ed to escape, according to the report
of Preston 1C. Thomas, warden of the
Ohio state penitentiary. While these
men were thus employed there was no
harrier except their own honor between
them and freedom. Of the eighteen
men who broke faith, all but seven
were caught and returned to the pris-
on, so that the percentage of those who j
failed to serve their full sentences was
only 2'i- This record, says Warden
Thomas, compares favorably with
trusts in the outside world.
Also in Michigan, where nil persons
convicted of drunkenness or vagrancy
are sentenced to work on the roads in
stead or to Jail, the practice of trusting
prisoners has been found successful.
Not only that. but. according to W
M. Hryaiit. good roads commissioner of
Michigan, the sentencing of convicts
to work on the highways tends to elim
inate much petty crime. It was In
Colorado, under Warden Thomas J
Tynan, that the honor system was
first employed among prisoners at work
on the highways, and It Is In that
state and Oregon that the system has
been most extensively developed. Gov
ernor West of Oregon. In a statement
to the national committee on prison
labor concerning the honor system
among prisoners nt work on the roads,
"Our road gangs are made up of from
fifteen to twenty-five men. with a free
man as foreman, who lives nnd works
with his crew. Ills word Is law in
camp, nud his report as to conduct of
the prisoners curries great weight with
the prison ollieinls. it Is most essen
tlal. therefore, that great care be ex
ercised in the selection of these fore
men. We have hud unexpected suc
cess in the operation of our road gangs
Some have been maintained ns far as
?X) miles from the prison, nnd nearly
all In the hills and mountains, where
every opportunity was given to escape.
At first we lost a number of men. due
largely to the novelty of the plan nnd
unjust newspaper criticism, which
made many of them fear the abandon
ment of tle policy and their return to
prison There hns been less newspa

The Increasing popularity or tills plan I
Is described by John A. Ila.ehv oo.l, J
chairman or the Mate highway com j
mission, as follows:
"Wisconsin embarked upon a policy J
of county aid for highway Improve- j
uiMit or the principal roads In the j
counties of the state by nil enactment j
of the legislature In l'.)i7. and under
the policy or county aid twenty conn
lbs in the state accomplished a great j
deal of g I prior to r.ipj j

d.s ided upon the policy or state aid In i
addition to the county aid provided for j
in l'.;i7 and made an appropriation of i
it iih annually to carry the under I
taking along. I'urii g the year 11- j
sixty live counties out or seventy one :
nt-ked and received county and state j
aid. Last year sixty eight out or the
seventy-one have received county nud
state aid roc highwav betterment. i
-The legislature or I'.'lo. apparently j
ipprecli'tiug the success and popular!
ty or the state ai.l provision over that I
of the county aid policy, appropriated ,
f l.UHil.iMiO annually to carry along tin
good roads work. In t'.ill. by a nar I
i row margin of one vote, the stale tip i
propriatloti was made for the new poll i
cy. wliile In l!)l:! every vote In both i
houses of the legislature, with the ex j
eeption of seven, 'was cast for tin f I. .
JOiUMMi appropriation.
"Since the legislature adjourned th-
j three counties not engaged in good j
j road work prior to this time have vol I
; ed to come under the provisions of tic-
; state aid policy. L'onseipienl !y in 1!1 1
j the entire state Is carrying on road iia
proveinent under the state aid policy."

A similar example of the extraordi
nary change that has occurred in the
use of roads In recent years Is that of
a furniture manufacturing concern in
Eastern, Pu., which delivers on its own
trucks to New York city Instead of
using the already constructed steel
roads namely, the railroads. This
concern uses the ordinary roads. A
considerable tonnage Is thus trans
ferred from the steel roads specially
constructed to bear It to the country
road not constructed for any such
weight or friction. It has thus enme
to pass that the science of engineer
ing, which was called upon to furnish
experts to railroad companies, is now
also called upon to furnish experts to
road building authorities
Colorado Good Roads Association,
During the recent convention of the
Colorado Good Koails association It
went on record as favoring greater de
velopment of the state highways along
the plun mapped out by the state
highway commission and as advocat
ing a state levy of one-half mill for
road building. There was considerable
debate on the relative merits of the
half mill levy and a bond issue of $5,
000.000. The advocutes of the former
succeeded In carrying, the convention,
and It is stated that steps will bo tak
en by the association to Initiate nt the
November election a bill to make funds
available for litis. "
