"If tho paving of public highways

It promises to do, tho stato ought to

Governor Holcomb, a member or the
stnto board of control. "The state
could surely make ,a great supply of
brick for municipalities, counties or
any district desiring to pave highways.
Tho state might in addition furnish
considerable labor for tho laying of the
pavement. Long term men could be
worked in the factory and ehort term
men might also be given labor that
could bo learned In a short tlmo. The
desire of tho stato Is to furnish work
for tho prisoners. By laying brick at
cost tho demand for tho output ought
to be large. As much of tho work is
performed by machinery tho stato
could with a comparatively small num.
her of men manufucturo a large
