If the farmers of Oregon desire to
continue the production of flax the pen
itentiary stands ready to purchase the
eiop delivered at the prison flax plant,
but there will be no further contracts
entered into involving the use of eon
'Viet labor outside of the prison walls.
.This decision, prompted by tho experi
ence of the past season, was voiced by
Warden B. E. Steiner at the meeting oi
the state board of control, Wednesday
afternoon, and is approved by Governor
Olcott, .who, under the state law, is di
icetly responsible for the policy of this
At the September meeting of the
board of control Warden Steiner pre
sented a- letter voicing his opposition to
the use ef convict labor in the harvest
ing of flax or in any other work in
volving the use of convicts outside the
prison walls. This opposition is based
on tho difficulty experienced in secur
ing sufficient labor to cany out these
contracts without resorting to the use
of "haidboils" and the necessity for
maintaining heavy gun guards in order
to prevent escapes. . , ;
Warden Steiner in his letter to the
board calls attention to the fact that so
far not a single fanner had entered in
to a contract with the state for the pro
duction of flax on the new torms which
include delivery at the prison plant at a
price of $35 a ton for the first class
product, $25 a ton for second class, pull
ed by hand,. and $15 a ton for flnx cat
by mower regardless of length.
"It has . been demonstrated beyond
question that Oregon .can grow flax of
tke very finest quality, also that our
, climate is favorable for its manufac
ture," Warden Steiner declares. .
"It is now time for this industry to
stand on its own bottom. Flax must be
cared for at the Bame time that our
varied fruits,' vegetables, grain, hay,
lops and other erops must be harvested.
Everyone knows what scarcity of help
and high prices exist. The penitentiary
bag performed its function, in the flax
demonstration." -
.Warden Steiner 's letter concludes
with a recommendation that other in
dustries bo established at the prison to
provide employment for the convicts in
the evont the flax plant is compelled
- to close down because of a lack of raw
material which now seems highly prob
able. "They are willing to work if encour
aged and thereby assist in their main
tenance," he declares. "It is proper
that those men be taught to learn trades
and to, save some money so that when
they again enter the world, they do not
do so with empty pockets, without a
trade and with a mind poisoned against
society. The state has its duty to per
form regardless of what the convict has
done or may do.
"An immediate effort should be made
to install some industry which will af
ford the inmates of the prison labor so
that the. men can be kept from idle
ness and at the same time produce some
profit to the state. I have in mind sev
eral industries which I think could be
profitably installed, but before making
a final report in this regard I woutii
advise an investigation of tho most suc
cessful prisons in the- United States so
that we could get the benefit of their
experience and actual results."
Warden Steiner will leave within a
few days for a tour of the middlcwest,
south and east, upon instruction of the
state board, of control, with a view to
atodying industrial plants in various
state prisons. His tour will include Co
Iambus, Ohio; Ja-ckson, Mich.; Joliet,
JSL; Stillwater, Minn.; Jefferson, Ind.;
sad possibly to New York where he
would inspect the famous Sing Sing
prison. '
Protection From

Asked of Olcott
Must a man in Oregon sit helpless

A plea for the early release . of
George Chenoweth from the state hos

J. Sehliemann of Gold Beach, in a let
ter received by Attorney General
Brown, who declares himself to be with
out any jurisdiction in the matter.
Chenoweth, a member of the last Btato
legislature, was acquitted of a man
slaughter charge on the grounds of
insanity and committed to the state
institution by the circuit court of Cur
ry county. He is now deained in the re

"Tho character of the man is well
shown when the prosecution in an in

ho did not agreo with his counsel that
he was insane," the letter reads.
Dr. Schlieinann declares that he has
examined insane .people for 40 years
past and is unable to detect any symp
toms of insanity in Chenoweth.
"I regard him as absolutely honest,
absolutely upright in thought and ac

on the witness stand even to save his
own life, " he. continues. The letter
conclude with the declaration that de
