'.1NCOL.N. March DC.-tSpleclal.l-T he
s v8tatc Board of Control takes exception to
statements made by The Bee's Lincoln
coi respondent regarding tho exiicnses of
running the state penitentiary, compared
to the cost before the present adminis
tration came Into power, and In a long
nrtlcle published In Lincoln papers seeks
to show that The Bee correspondent was
In error when he said the cost had not
muterlally lowered since the board of
control came into being.
The chairman of tho board, to prove
llial rue uce corresponaem was mis
token, offers statements of tho convict
Mnrlcy. who whs one of tho ringleaders
ill the prison outbreak two years ago, and
quotes him as snylng that under the old
conditions the prisoners were liable to
break loose any time, whllo under present
condition))' they are satisfied to stay
within the prison walls. This brings up
again tho question of whether a man
who breaks the law H put in the Peni
tentiary for punishment or made to make
him so plcuscd with his surroundings
that he will regret to loavo the institu
tion.' I'cr t'nplln flint I iiercuarn.
.lust to keep the record straight as to
the cost of running the penitentiary, the
reports in the governor's office show
' that November 30, 1012. Just befoie the
iieecnt administration took charge, the
per capita cost was 9103. Tho report Tor
November 00, 1913. four months after the
board of control took charge, shows tha
per capita cost as $143.65. Thus accord
ing to tho warden the per capita cost
was then JIS more tlrnn It was for the
same period under the republican admin
iteration. As indicating what Warden
Fcrlon might do It left to his own re-
sources, on April l. 1913, after air. ftaton
hud been In charge of the penitentiary
two months, tho per capita cost, accord
ing to his report to tho governor, was
only SS6..X1. Thro months late, after tHi;
board of control had managed the insti
tution four months, the per capita, had
risen to $14!).fir, of $63.30 more than when
the warden had things all hla own way.
The board objects to the comparison
tit one month of 1912 with the samo
month of 1914. To avoid possible mislead
ing comparisons, tho records of the state
auditor, where all warrants are drawn,
have been consulted, and a longer period
taken to show Just what the Institution
Six Month Loliipurlnon. (
For tho last six nionthsof 1912 tliVj
rccoros show that there was spent to
run tho penitentiary Uie sum of $39,793.75,
being tho same Items under a lump appro
priation as are now covered by scparato
opproprlatlons. For the last slx months
of 13lS, which wore the first six months
of the board of control, the cost waa $oU,-S51.64,-'

Nichols, a young man 20 year old,

n iierieiencv created at mo cna ui ..i'"-..- '
which necessitated a deficiency approp
riation. Therefore It may bo well to go
back to the first tlx months of 1912 be
fore the deficiency was created. For the
six months beginning January 1, 1912,
and ending Juno 1X, 1912, the books of
tho auditor's office show expenses of
J.5,721.71, still less than the six months
under the board by J4.623.93.
As to the population of the prison, re
ports of the warden on file with the gov
ernor show that for February, 1914, there
were 039 prisoners and In February, 1912,
4M prisoners, or ninety-four fewer pris
oners to support last month than the,
tame month two years -.ago. That the
prison population Is continually changing
Is well known. When the board took
liargo July 1, 1913, there wero 351 pris
oners In the pen, while for the same
month of 1912 there were seventy-one
more, or a total of 422.
The average number of prisoners for
the six months ending May 31, 1913, the
time at which semi-annual reports aro
made, was'378, while for'the same period
.of 1912 it was 41G, being eighty-eight
more than under thi present Administra
tion. The scmi-annunl report made No
vember 30, 1913, after tho board of con
t nil took charge, showed the number of
prisoners as,347, while for the same per
iod under tho former administration the
number was 403, bring fifty-elght more,
and still the penitentiary Is costing more
to run with all the way from fifty-eight
to ninety-four prisoners less that It did
under tho old administration.
Homal In llxipiiNes,
Tho boaid further explains a deficiency
lmd to be oted by the last legislature of
KP0C0 to pay up outstanding accounts.
In this the board Is correct, but It is a
wrl known fact that the outbreak of
prisoners in March. 1912. was responsible
for much of the running behind of the
Institution, the boost In salaries made
immediately aer the outbreak and the
increase in guards, running the mlilnl
expense up to nearly tl,W a month for
thf balance or the blennlum. Added to
this was the cost of having the militia
at the pen, the cost of feeding them and
other thing Incident to the outbreak.
Great credit sholuld 1 given Warden
Kenton for his work at the ponltentlary.
As shown by the figures on per eapltu
cost, he brought down the cost per pris
oner to the lowest it had been for some
Utiio In the six 'months )e was running
under tho old board of public lands and
buildings, but as soon as the Board of
Control took charge, for some reason the
cost per prisoner Jumped up about 73
ner cent, or to be explicit, from $S.35 to
11?G5, If the reports to ' the governor
nade by the warden himself are correct.
The proposition is not one of criticism
of thb Individual members of the board,
but a question whether the state Is gain
ing as much thtough the creation of the
ooard as It should.
