The following inK-re-iting infor
mation is takvii from the recent ar
ticle entitled "Rond building with
Convict I.ahor in the Southern
jStates," by Prof.. J. A. Holmes,
and will lie of mini mi to those fa

nicnt i:i North Carolina :
Portable frianr. on wheels arc
now in use hi Several I.xilities.
These movable jails appear to
solve the problem of preventing the
escape of convicts employed at
great distances from their prison
proper. In exterior appearances
they are freight car bodies provided
with barred windows, and mounted
ujion wagon trucks. As the road
improvement progresses the-/ are
drawn forward by horses ami col
lected in some convenient grove or
open field, selected as tbe temporary
prison camp. Morning »n«i even
ing cfihvicts are marched along the
road from and to their quarters.
To facilitate their being safely
guarded during the night without
too great risk and expense, each
prisoner, when be goes to bed. has
either one foot or one hand x.taua
clrd loosely to a chaiu or rod from
which he can lie easily released
following morning.
1 iers of banks inside comprise
the sleeping quarters. These sir
easily and cheaply made comforta

ually done, however, by trusty
ma:t con\"icts. and in some cases it
is performed by hind lal>or. The
younger pi i-oticr-. are usually as
signed to tasks as the carrying of
water or the running of errands.
A ball and chain arc attached to
convicts who show a desire to es
cape. While tliL-se encumbrances
make it impossible for a prisoner to
run tapidlyr they do n t seriously
hamper his movements during the
regular road work.
J Critics of the convict system of
road bcilJing say that it offers to
many opportunities for,the escape
of prisoners; as a matter'of fact,
however, the annual escapes amount
to less than two men out of each
hundred Almost 300 counties
representing ten States, employ
convict labor upon their roads.
This furnishes an army of
■4.377 road builders, each of whom
costs his State jj'i cents a day.
I Were he left in tlie county jail be
wonkl cost 1 % cents more a
"lay He is a cheaper article toil
ing upon the roads titan languish
ing in a cell or jail van!. All told,
the cost of convict labor in these
Stabs ranges from one-third to one
-1 half that of lured labor employed
in the same work. '
The Southern States employing
convict road builders are Florida,
Kentucky, Ixwisiana. Mississippi,
I North Carolina, Sooth Carolina,
Tennessee. Texas and Virginia.

Another virtue of th? system is
that the prisoners, i.fter injuring

Only prisoners con- Vted of mis
demeanor . can lie a?s: ;iied to work
on the public road ■ of Virginia,
West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennes
see, Louisiana, Missi -ippi, Texas,
Florida and (leorjia. The terms
of such convicts do not usually ex
ceed one year. In Alabama an
able bodie l male fri oner whose
terms do not exceed two years, may
be sent to the roads. In South
Carolina the limit is five years and
North Carolina ten. *•'
An experiment is now being
made in some Southern counties in
the employment of the roads of
captured, bet unctii.\ icttd prison
ers, unable to give baiLlfthe
prisoner be acquitted at his trial he
is paid for his services. If con
victed his period of labor on the
roads is deducted front his term.

Solving a Froblem.
In a speech in London the other
day the orator told an admirable
story of the advice given by an
Englishman, a Scotchman and an
Irishman respectfully to a gentle
man whose servant was constantly
breaking articles in the household.
,Xhe Englishman in his blunt, hon
est way said to the employer, "Oh,
get rid of him —dismiss him." The
Scotchman's advice was, " the
money out of his wages " "But,"
said the master, "he breaks more
than his wages amounts to."
"Then," said the Irishman, "raise
his wages."
