How to Care for Prisoners.
How Nebraska prison labor
should be used to avoid compet

before the Manufacturers' as

spoke by invitation to the manu
facturers yesterday. He advised
that short-term convicts should
be put at building roads. Long
term and life convicts should be
put to farming. Their products
be believed would not by competi
tion greatly injure agriculture,
as I he demand for farm pro
ducts is always beyond Ihe sup-

their labor and are forced to com
