The exieriment iu roadmaking by
.county prismers undertaken two years
ago by the board of supervisors of On
eida eounry, Xew ' York, lias gone
far euougb to. Enable some judgment
to le formed of lia practical yalr.e.
says tlie Xew York Tribune. The si-c-ond
section of roal built under th"
system has just Inn-n completed, and
statistics of c-ost are available for
comparison with tlie cost of good
ri..:cadam road.s built under eontraet.
Tin Om-ida -county supervisors !n the
fitll: of l:i!.; after nearly a year of
planning, pim-hased a road out tit, in
cluding a twelve ton steam roller, a
stone crusher aiul 'self -dumping wa
gons, at a iiis'. of $:UM0. and offered
to cor. tract witli Hie towns and vil
lages for tlie const ruction of roads by
the Lilior of the prisoners in the t'tica
jail. Tlie county charges 2" cents a
head for each day's work of eight
hours actually performed, and $"2.5 a
day for the servk-cs of the engineer
employed for the steam roller. In ad
dition It requires the road district or
village to furnish coal and road material-am!
suiM-rvise the const rui'tioii ac
cording to sM-cilir-ations agreed upon.
Tin iirst road building was under
taken last fall of li sectwni seve-i-eigbths
of a mile long ami sixteen feet
wide iu the village of Vernon. This
was not entirely satisfactory, owing
to the exM-rimental nature of the
work. A large amount of preliminary
hrlKU- had to be jiorformed in develop
ing a quarry, and the cost of t In
road and the lime iM-cupied in c.ui
struction were unespecti dly great. Af
ter ,a year's wear, however, if is in
perfect eoiiliii.iii without any repairs.
In May a contract was made with
Uoad Jitrict No. 1 of the -town o;
Whitestown fov tlie ou'slriietion of ' .1
road one and . three tenths miles , in
leugth through .the village of Xew

For 2" feet! the road was to; fee'.
Wide; for 4,7iHI feet, bl'fii-t wide, and
for l.!NN feet, 2l reet wide. The inac
adain was: six inches Ihick, with a

Thirty-four prisoners on an average
were employed, -A0 cubic yards oi
2'j Inch crushed limestone and To:;
cubic yanrs of ha f inch crushed lime
stone were used. The time oeeiip'usi

obje-tioii;ible features of tlie present
system. The law making an allow

changed Prisoners at hard lalmr out

Mr. Wab-ott Jinds that for lict of

defects could easily lie rennedied. In
