THE STATE CAPITAL
MATTERS OF INTEREST TO ALL
THE CONVICT UBQR CONTRACT
Broom Company to Continue as Now
Until June Seventeen, at Fifty
Cents Per Convict
Labor Contract With Convicts.
The State Board of Public Lands
and Buildings decided to permit the
Lee Broom and Duster company to use
convict labor until June 17 at 50 cents
a convict per day. After that date the
labor is to.be paid for at a rate of 75
cents a day for each convict This
notice was served on C. R. Lee, man
ager of the company, so that he wou;d
know he is expected to vacate the
penitentiary by June 17 unless he
agrees to accept the convicts at the
higher rate of pay. The action of the
board was reported to Governor Shel
don, who approved' it.
The Lee company objected strenu
ously to paying a higher rate for the
convicts and Mr. Lee said he would re
commend to -the next legislature that
the state install some kind of manufac
turing plant and use the convicts it
self. "This," he said, "will show the
people that little money is made out
of convict labor. The state will never
be satisfied, however, until it has tried
the experiment of using the convicts
and the quicker this is tried, the bet
ter I will be satisfied."
While he said he had several offers
from other prisons to use their con
victs, Mr. Lee said if he finally con
clued to quit the penitentiary here he
hoped to quit prison labor entirely.
Report on Nebraska Banks.
Te annual report of Secretary Rcyse
of the State Banking board, now in
the hands of the printers, will shortly
be issued to the public. Notwithstand
ing the recent panic the report shows
the state banks to be in good sound
condition and only one failure during
the entire year, the Citizen's bank of
Firth. This failure was due to heavy
speculation on the board of trade by
the cashier. During the year there
were examined 689 banks, and building
and loan associations for which fees
were collected to the amount of $12,
440; forty-seven banks were chartered,
for which fees were collected to the
amount of $1,175. Mr. Royse condemns j
the ownership of a chain of banks as
"There is one practice that exists
to some ,extent in this state which, in
my opinion, sooner or later will have
to be remedied or serious trouble will
follow I refer to a chain of small
banks owned, operated and controlled
by the same management, or used as
feeders for some larger bank. This is
a practice that will require more than
ordinary skill to avoid disaster sooner
or later. I am firm in the conviction
that some legislation is necessary to
enable the State Banking Board to
meet this practice, when in their
opinion the interest of the depositors

land was settled back in 1S55. when
the pioner thought he was getting lo

the old channel on the west. The
court holds that in cases of that kind,

Street Railway Sale Void.
The United States court of appeals
at St. Paul, Minn., has set aside the
sale of the old Home Street Railway
company to the new Citizens' com

cision is to deprive the Citizens' com
pany of the franchises permitting use
of the streets of the city. A defect in
the confirmation of the sale of the old
company is the basis for the ruling.
The Citizens' company claims that this
merely sets aside the sale, but that
under a decision of the supreme court
of Nebraska it cannot be driven from

and two-thirds of the remainder of his

Boys Escape from School.
From the accounts filed with the
state it is evident boys sent to the In
dustrial school at Kearney don't like
the place. For the last four months
the expense of returning escaped boys
has been unusually large. For Febru
ary it cost the state $32.67, by reason
of the escape of inmates of the school:
S81.51 for March: $6.94 for April, and
j $43.05 for May. Whether the large
number of escapes is due to a microbe
at work, or carelessness on the part
of officers of the school or just hap
pened, the account does not state.
