. Nebraska
Members Oppose Bills That
Tend to Injure This Form
of Work.
(From a Buff Comipqndeot.)
Lincoln, March 3. (Special The
State Board of Control is not in har
mony with tome legislation. which the
present legislature seeks to pass. This
is shown in its opposition to a bill
introduced by Senator Moriarty of
Douglas county, who seeks to prevent
the manufacture of any goods at the
Nebraska penitentiary which come in
competition with goods manufactured
in this state.
Endangers Reed Factory..
The passage of such a bill would
mean the death of the reed furniture
factory at the plant, which was au
thorized by the last, legislature and
which is going along in good shape at
the present time and employs 135 men.
The state has $50,000 invested in the
plant, and, according to Commissioner
Mayfield, the passage of the bill would
be detrimental to the best interests of
the penitentiary and the men therein.
It is said that the only business the
reed furniture making comes in com
petition with is the Omaha Reed and
Rattan company in the city of Omaha.
As to Convict Label.
Another bill which Mayfield be
lieve! would be detrimental to the
state is one by Howell, also a Doug
las county senator. His bill, senate
file No. 115, provides that convict
made goods from outside the state'
should be labeled as such. The meas
ure, excepts goods made in the Ne
braska penitentiary and the board is
of the opinion that this will force
other itatet to go to the trouble of
labeling goods and suffer consequen
tial financial loss on account of senti
ment against convict labor. This will
result m other states passing retalia
tory measures and will react against
the luccess oof the state penitentiary
factory. ; '
