Advocate Free Labor.
George E. Johnson, Mate engineer,
announced la.it week that due to the
drop in wajrea he bclkved contrac
tor! could build road cheaper thi
Mjmmer with free labor than with
The overhead in ceding prisoners
and cuardi, borne by the Mate,
added to the $1.12 1-2 paid convicts
lor labor last summer, would. John
son believe;, amount to more than
'ontram made with men employing
"That certainly will be a blow to
(be morale of thi instituliony" the
warden said. "We are willing: to
do anything practicable to continue
road building as it is a paying prop
osition for the state both from an
eqonomic and manbuilding stand
point. "Convict gang have worked on
state roadi two years now. The
tirst year there were a few escape
but last year not a nan escaped,
"Then under the -present law a
man who works on the roads Rets
an extra day on his time for every
day he is in the camp. That Is in
addition to the 75 rents per day he
received for bis labor. The stas
obtained 37 1-2 ccts a day for the
labor of each man.
Say Story Ill-Founded.
"The story that with our new
shirt factory there will be no men
available for the road camp this
summer is ill-founded. Today, the
penitentiary population is 575 and
it will remain at about the same
figure all summer.
"We need 100 men here to do
chores around the institution, 250
will be employed in the shirt fac
tory and lOu in the furniture factory.
This leaves 100 men available for
the road camp. Last year there
were 55 men on road gangs.
"The department of public worts
must feed the men and we clothe
them from the 37 1-2 . cents a day
which comes out of their wages.
There were two guards at each ot
the three camps last summer who
received $100 a month. At the most
I don't see how convict labor will
cost more than $2 a day. I don't
believe there is any labor that could
be obtained so cheaply.
"The yelping about competition
isn't necessary because of the rela
tively small amount of competition
the convicts afford. I hope the
contractors, for the small amount of
profit ' they may receive by getting
convict labor abolished, will retain
sufficient of the milk of human kind
ness to help the state in rehabilitat
ing these men, who need that 75
cents a day and need the fresh air
and the extra time it gives them on
Water-Logged Frisco Ship

San Francisco, March 20.
Abandonment of the Sarr Francisco
bound steam schooner Fairhaven,

All U. S. Troops Ordered to
Leave Rhine ly July 1
Washington, March 20. Orders
directing the return to the United
States by July 1 of all American
troops now on the Rhine were issued
today by Secretary Weeks.
The order includes the return by
the end of the fiscal year of the en
tire force of approximately 2,000 men
excepted from the previous order of
several weeks ago, under which the
homeward movement of the majority
of the American Rhine contingent is
now in progress.
The action of thi War department
was merely a continuation of policy
previously announced for withdraw
ing the American forces from the
Rhine territory as early as possible.
Mr. Weeks said. It was indicated
that the status of army legislation in
congress in 'no way influenced the
department's decision and also that
the controversy over payment ' by
Germany for the maintenance of the
Rhineland troops was not involved.
