WARDEN STEVENS HAS
BEGUN CLEANING UP
TASK AT STATE PRISON
Says He First Intends To In
ject Some "Pep" Into Con
Warden B. L. Stevens says he has his
sleeves rolled up and he has begun the
task of cleaning up the state peniten
One of the first things he says he
wants to do is to inject a littje pep
into the eonvicts themselves, and by
proper treatment improve their physi
cal and mental condition until thev
havo the right viewpoint of life.
"As long as the morale of an insti
tution like that is low it is diicult
to do much with the men," ht uaMi,
"but when the moralo i8 up and the
men get the idea that it is worth while
to put their best side orward then vou
will see a big chaneo in the conduct
of the men. Much depends on the view
point of the men themselves."
The warden soys he will rtvo ery
attention to the Question of providing
compensation fop the prisoners who are
at work. Those emploved in the flax
plnnt or in the lime plant at Gold aili
are now receiving from 25 to 75 cents a
day, lie pointed out, while the man em
ployed in the kitchen or some other
part of the prison is paid nothing, al
though he may work as hard as the

sense of fairness." he said.
Ho said also he wants to arrange to
nave eccn incoming prisoner tested for
venereal or other contagious .diseases
and arrange t0 have those diseased seg
regated from the othor men. Ho de
clared it was almost criminal to force
a healthy prisoner to live in a cell with
a diseased ono.
Attempt to Escape
Discovery of a trap door cut in the
side of the refrigerator plant at the
penitentiary reveals the manner in
which Willard Tanner and George De
mont, tho two convicts who attempted
to escape Sunday, gained entrance to
the refrigerator. .
The discovery was made by Warden
Stevens, who became convinced thut
the convict who. has charge of the re
frigerator did not admit the two men
through the regular door.
It is assumed that the door was cut
into the wall to afford prisonerg means
of helping themselves to meat. The
meat for the penitentiary and other
state institutions is kept in cold stor
age there. Meat deliveries are made
each Tuesday by a trusty, and it is sup
posed that Tanner and Demont intend
ed to remain in hiding from Sunday
to Tuesday and take a chance on beinji
smuggled out of tho prison yard as u
side of beef or a stuck pig.

For These Bonds.
At a meeting of the state highway
commission in Portland yesterday, an

sold to William Solomon & Co. of Chi
cago for $239,292.50, which is at a die
count of $10,707.50. The commission

A proposal was made to the commis
sion by visiting delegations that the
limit on the $6,000,000 bond issue be re
moved and another isnie of $4,000,000
be voted, as it was estimated that in
creased receipts from automobile li
cense fees will take care of that addi
tiontil 81. m.
Relegations from various parts o
the state appeared before the commis
sion, urging that different paving pro
jects be undertaken by the state. A
delegation from Astoria end Portland
mited tho commission to complete the
Columbia river highway from Aston
to the Tillamook county line. County
Judge Gunning of Wasco asked the
commission to complete the Columbia
river highway between Chenoweth
creek and The Dalles and between The
Dalles and Petersburg, a distance of
Another delegation from Washing
ton and Yamhill counties urged the
early completion of the west side Pa
cific highway from the Multnomah
county line to McMinnvillo, by way
of Hillsboro and Forest Grove.
The commission is in session again
today, working on the road building
