THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: - MARm - 4.- 1917. . Nebraska BOARD OF CONTROL . FOR "PENFACTORY Members Oppose Bills That Tend to Injure This Form of Work. VIEWS OF MAYFIELD (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. ; ' Legislators Find Omaha , Nice Place for Recreation - '' " (From a SuaU Correspondent.)
