It doesn't seem believable, yet I
saw it myself.
I'll admit I felt like the farmer at
the circus who stared at the hippo
potamus for a long time and then
turned away saying, "Oh, h 1!
There ain't no such an animal."
I have nosed through prisons before

of the governor of the state. Not being

tny business with the chief executive ot
the state of Oregon, when Governor West
picked op his hat as I started to leave,
remarking, "Now that we have finished
our business, you've got to come out and
take a look at my slate prison."
We walked out across the capitol
grounds and took a street car. A few
people said, "Good afternoon, governor."
but most of them said, "Hello, Oe." The
governor of Orepon doesn't care a snap
about dignity, lio Is no long-tall-coat,
silk-hat governor. Oswald West wears a
blue sack suit and a derby hat; and his
socks are not (ilk. I thought a man who
waa big enough to go out and hunt an
escaped convict and bring htm in at the
end of a gun would be a great big fellow,
but ho Isn't. Ho Isn't very tall, nor very
heavy, but he has a determined look on
ilS face. I rather Imagine the convict
didn't hesitate much when he saw the
face looking across the barrel of a gun.
The summer before last three convicts
broke away from the road-making gang
and fled Into the brush. A powc was
organised. Indignant at the storm of
criticism of his new system, the governor
strapped a gun on and went out Into the
brush himself. About nightfall he saw
the smoke of a camp and creeping up he
covered Ids man and led him back to the
penitentiary at the end of his gun.
He talked "prison" as we rode along
In the street car and took a short cut
through a field to the penitentiary.
"I had my own notions about peniten
tiaries before I got to be governor," he.
said. "We had 6(0 husky convicts out'

and run them around the prison yard

and called the prisoners and guards sll
together snd talked a little common
sense to them. 'J asked them which they
would rather do, go outside In the fields

boxed up In cells all day; whether they
wouldn't rather raise some vegetables and
chickens and' have better things to eat;
whether tiny didn't want to learn how
to do something useful, so they would
have a trade and earn a decent living
when they got out. Being shut up In
a cell all day didn't sound a bit good
to them, t used to break horses. What I
put up to them Was the same old scheme.

MON SENSE AND ITS DOLLARS AND
CENTS TOO. I'll show you.
"Do you see this field from the end of
the car line to the big wall? We bought
and paid for that out of money that these
fellows earned. Our attorney general
said, that nowhere did the law ssy. that
we could spend our money this wsy snd
I told him that neither did the law say
we couldn't. It didn't say we could earn
It either. We bought the field.
"We expect, to Irrigate that field be

We will put It in blue grass and have
a fine herd of Jerseys and Holstelns. I
recently told the city we would make this

will make this a park all the way down

a lake out ot this slough over here. Did
you ever see anything prettier than that
.-reek with that clump of trees? The
kiddles from rfalem can come out here
next summer and have picnics and dangle
their feet in the creek. Isn't that worth
while even If there is no law for It?

And the governor proceeded to show me
Its fine points snd tell me how he planned
to stock It with well-bred birds. "This
will furnish all the eggs we need and
make a profit besides."

They were all outaida tits prison walls

no stripes to distinguish them from the

Four years ago, when we had them under

"What about that capture you made?"
I ventured. "Oh, that was a lucky

I have heard that some big department
stores' and factories try to establish sn
atmosphere of cheerfulness In their estab
lishments, but I never had seen It before
in a penitentiary. The convicts brightened
up ss they saw the governor coming;; as
a matter of fact, a lot of them simply
beamed. He knew most of them by name
and it was "Hello Jim," "Are you getting
on to making shirts, JoeT" and "How do
you do, boys," all along the line. There
was no "present arms" and "hats-off"
performance on the part of the prisoners.
Moat ot them, but not all, touched their
hats or took them off. Those who did.
took them off as though they wanted to,
not as If they hsd to.
The prisoners Inside the walls are the
ones who need watching and the usual
patrol with a gun on the wall waa ever
present All the prison dally work Is done
by convicts. Including the making of
clothes, caps and shoes.
"Here Is where we beat the dark cell
and bresd-and-water plan," said the
governor, as he led mo into the com

twice a week; moving pictures, stunts by
prisoners and some times by outside
talent. Then we always give them Sat

There Isn't anything that will make them

no guards; no ball and chain; no striped
