LIKCOE.N. April 17. (Special.) W. L.
Cunningham of BU Louis Is anxious to em
ploy the prisoner li. the state penitentiary
in a tailor shcp. Mr. Cunningham called
on the members i f the Stste Board of
Public La.uls nml Buildings this afternoon
and proposed to employ every prisoner who
is abl. to work In the manutacture or
clothing for laborers.
Should f'-i board agree to his proposi
tion Mr. Cunnlng'.iam aald he would In
stall about $ISX worth of machinery and
ret busy at oiicfc. He told the board It
would cost the state less than the broom
factory costs In the matter of heat and
L'nder the contract with the Lee Broom-
company the board cannot let all the prla
oners to the pioposed contractor, but it la
the opinion of the board Mr. Cunningham
trill be willing to use a portion of the men,
ibout 123, for the present. The Lee con
tract calls for not more, than 250 men.
When It first began to dicker with the
St. Louis man the board was under the
Impression It could terminate the Lee con
tract on six months' notice, but upon ex
amination It discovered that the contract
could be terminated after six months
notice provided tne state used the con
vlcts. This was put in the contract with
the expectation that the legislature might
take some steps to put In a twine factory
or other manufacturing plant to be run
by the state.
It Is expected. If a contract is made with
the St. Louis man that It wilt net the state
about 60 cents a convict a day.' Mr. Cun
ningham is anxious for a long-time con
tract and will meet with the board again
Under the law the governor makes the
contract and It la approved by the board
and action today .was delayed because the
governor could not meet with the board.
Should a contract be made with Mr.
Cunningham the use of the convicts In
raising sugar beets would not materialise,
which would be very pleasing to the war
den and to members of the state board.
Mr. Cunningham told the board if he
' were permitted to use the six female con
victs ha could furnish the state Institutions
