PRISON-MADE JUTE BAGS
Only a Few Thousand Borax
Sacks to Be Made at
San Quentin.
COMPETING WITH FREE LABOR.
State Prison Directors In a Quandary
About Providing for Insane
Prisoners.
At the regular meeting of the State Board
of Prison Directors at San Quentin yester
day there was present R. M. Fitzgerald,
D. E. Hayes, James H. Wilkins and E. J.
Depue, J. H. Neff absent. The principal
subject considered was cue manufacture of
jute bags.
Warden Hale in his report stated that
the sale of jute bags for the season was
000,000. Of these 200,000 were sugar bags,
■which sold for h\C cents. Jute on hand
and to be delivered at the mill in a short
time amounts to 5813 bales. This will last
at the present rate of consumption until
about December 1.
The matter of selling 10,000 borax bags
to the Paciiic Borax Company brought up
the subject of the protest of the Oakland
Cotton Mills against competing with con
vict labor. Director Fitzgerald stated that
he had discussed the matter with Mr. Ruth
erford of the Oakland company betore
the contract was let, but he did not make
much objection to the Slate turning out
the work.
It was not until after the Warden had
made the contract with the borax firm
that the employes of the cotton mills
entered their protest against what they
considered unfair competition. Ttien v
was that Mr. Fitzgerald called the atten
tion of Mr. Rutherford to the fact that the
State has worked up a little trade in the
sale of sugar bags to the Ghino refinery
and with the Sandwich Islands. He wanted
to know of Mr. Rutherford if a protest
would be made if the State turns its atten
tion to this class of product. Mr. Ruther
ford told him that there would not.
Director Hayes said that after the board
works up a trade in these lines it cannot
afford to entertain any more protests in
that direction. It was the sentiment of
the directors that while not desiring to
enter into competition with free labor
there are several kinds of jute bags that
the free mills are not prepared to handle.
It was decided to fill the order for 10,000
borax bags, but not to make any more.
Warden Hale asked" for permission to
tear down the old brick laundry and erect
another structure for the confinement of
weak-minded and insane prisoners. The
present "cranky alley" is not a fit
place for this class of prisoners. The
bricks could be saved and be used in a
new building.
This raised another annoying subject.
There is no fund upou which to draw to
erect a suitable building for the criminal
insane, and there is too much risk in send
ing ttieni to the asylums.
Lirector Wilkins suggested that thesub
ject be taken up at the next meeting at
Folsom. It might be advisable to bniid a
ward for the insane at that prison. The
quarries there would furnish all the mate
rial necessary for :i substantial structure,
and all insane convicts could be kept at
Folsom. The subject was laid over until
the next meeting at Foisom. The Warden
was authorized to tear down the old laun
dry.
Toe reports of about two dozen parole
convicts now scattered all over the State
were read, showing that the system is
working successfully, and that the men

are doing well and leading exemplary

Conrad Praetzel was appointed as parole
clerk to take charge of this department at
a salary of $75 per month.
Several convicts appeared before the
board. Adam Stroh was charged with
baring opium in his possession. He said
that he has been using opium since Decem
ber. It was given to him by a friend, but
he refused to divulge the name of his
friend, nor could any information be ob
tained as to how the drug was taken into
the prison.
The u'uard testified that in Stroh's cell
were about two pounds of the drue. The
board decided that Stroh should forfeit all
his credits and wear a ball and chain for
thirty days.
William Laßrie asked for a restoration
of twenty-seven months' credits, forfeited
for stealing $5 from the captain of the
prison steamer Caroline. The case was
continued indefinitely, as Laßrie has still
a long term to serve.
Upon the recommendation of the War
den eight months' credits were restored to
John McNamee, accused of fighting. This
will let the young fellow leave the prison
on August 2.
SWEET HOUR OF ART.
Directors Bosqni and Stafford of the Art
Association Cannot Agree.
The new directory of the San Francisco
Art Association is not the happiest official
family in town. There are several points
upon which the board cannot agree, and
one which seems trivial at first glance
becomes more important as the subject is
observed. This ooint relates to the hour
of board meetings. It is claimed that Di
rector Bosqui, who has given a guiding
hand to the Art Association for more than
twenty years, prefers to meet his felJow
directors for the transaction of official
business during some hour of daylight.
On the other hand, "William G*. Stafford,
the new secretary of the association, pre
fers that -the directors should convene at
some hour between twilight and dawn.
The noon hour is very convenient to Mr.
Boqui. who dwells in Marin County after
darK, and prefers to pass his evenings at
home. Mr. Bosqui's ideas of happiness
consist in giving his days to art and his
nights to sleep.
The commercial environment which
beages the artistic genius of Mr. Stafford
relates to daily transactions in Beaver Hill
coal. Mr. Stafford would give both his
days and nights to art were he a million
aire, but the hard features of selling a long
ton of coal for a figure below the cost of a
picture-frame keeps him in the ranks of
the toilers.
While he cannot give lavishly in money
to promote art he can lend his moral sup
port and give some of his time, but he
cannot conscientiously give that time in
the daylight, when he ought to be watch
ing the coal market and keeping an eye on
Alex Dunsmuir, Arthur Ebbetts, P. B.
Cornwall and other dealers in hard ana
soft coal.
Now, it occurred to Mr. Martin of the
j Art Association a few days ago that lie
could reconcile the differences in the board
by having lunch at the institute on the
days the board met. He fancied that this
would allure ali the members of the board,
and the proposed spread at the Art Insti
tute on the hill unfolded another and a
broader proposition.
There he wouid be compelled to eat his
victuals, talk of art and think of coal, all
at the same time. The idea did not par
ticularly catch the fancy of Secretary
Stafford. The secretary was Dot so easily
won over. At his usual place of luncheon,
the Bohemian Ciub, he knows that he can
eat his food and yet keep his mind on
coal, but the task was too great and he de
clined the round table at the institute.
The vexed question is further than ever
from settlement. Bosqui Holds out for
daylight sessions, and Stafford insists that
the evening hours should be sacred to art.
Probably the largest casting ever made
in the country was turned out recently at

THE BARK CENTAUR LOST,

The Oceanic steamship Monowai, which
arrived yesterday morning from Austra

of the loss of the British barn Centaur, off
Hilo. April 17.
The vessel sailed from this port April 5
with a carpo of wheat bound for Marys
borough, Queensland. Twelve days after
in latitude 14 degrees 40 minutes north
and longitude 142 degrees 12 minutes west
she caught fire and was consumed. One
of the crew accidentally d ropped a lighted

that was saturated with parafrine oil. The
crew made every eflori to subdue the
flames, but without avail, and the entire
hold was soon a roaring furnace. Hutches
were battened down and all air passages
were closed, but the devouring flames con
tinued to make their way through tlie in
terior of the vessel.
During the niglu the frightened crew
walked the heated decks and moraentarilv
expected that the pent-up flames would

everything was so hot that they could not

them, and when tha pitch had melted out
of the seams between the planks the
smoke was beginning to escape.
Land was 800 miles away and no other
ship was in sight, but they knew that the
burning bark must be abandoned. On the
18th they took to the boats, and just in
time, for the plates burst and ?he was
commencing to settle as they pulled away.
They remained alongside until the bark
disappeared, then started for Hilo. A
stiff gale was blowing, and the castaways
suffered from exposure for nine days and
nights. The seas rolled into their boats,
wetting them to the sKin and keeping
them bailing out the water constantly.
They succeeded, however, in reaching
shore, where they were taken care of.
They will return to this City by the next

read with some personal interest the article on
page 9of the Examiner of this day, entitled
"General Barnes Loses His Salary-" I cannot
imagine the source from which the statements
made in the article emanated. It is enough to
gay that it is wholly without foundation in
fact so far as it relates to m«.
The article states that I refused to discuss
the matter or the reasons for the change. I
have to say that I have never been spoken to
on the subject by any person.
It also states: "Herrni and Barnes are not
the best of friends, and their dislike of each
other goes back to the days of the Sharon di
vorce case." 1 desire to say that, on the con
trary, Mr. Herrin and myself ure the best of
friends, and our friendship is founded upon
mutual respect and esteem. Mr. Herrin bus
never done t»n unfriendly act to me, and, on
the contrary, has shown his kindly feelings in
many ways and at all times, and I should be
glad of an opportunity to render like service
to him. Mr. Herrin has never gone out of his
way to attack my legal ability ; on the contrary,
he has procured my employment in important
I was not displeased when Mr. Herrin De
came the chief counsel of the Southern Pa
cific Company. I was glad of it. I never
goughtthe position and, so far as I know, I
wu never suggested as a possible candidate
;or it It did not nettle me to have Mr. Herrtn
put over me. I never had any assurance
from the Crockers that my relation to the
company would not be disturbed. Colonel
Croc Ker and myself never spoke on the subject.
If Mr Herrin's attitude toward me has the
approval of the Uuntingtons I am pleased.
My acquaintance with Mr. C. P. Huntington Is
very slight: indeed, I never met him socially
until his last visit to San Francisco. I am,
however, acquainted with Mr. H. K. Hunting
ton and like him very much, and our relations ]
have always been most pleasant, and I know j
no reason why they should not continue as 1
they arc. \ours truly, W. H. L. Barnes.
Not less outspoken than General Barnes j
is Mr. Herrin, who when interviewed yes
terday on the matter expressed his indig
nation as follows:
"The article in the Examiner this morn
ing appears to be a fabrication from be
ginning to end. There has been no change
whatever in the terms of en.p'.oyment of
General Barnes by the company. On the
contrary, his employment stands just as
it did when I became chief counsel of the
company.
"The statement, therefore, that some
warm conversation had occurred between
General Barnes and myself on the subject
is entirely untrue, as there has been no
change and, in fact, no thought of
change.
'It is also stated that I declined to dis
cuss the reasons for this change. This.
too, is entirely untrue, as the matter was
never mentioned to me. Tne first intima
tion I had of it was when my attention
wae called to the article as publish! d.
"The statement that 'Herrin and Barnes
are not the beat of friends' is also made
out of whole cloth. We have never had
any difficulty or unpleasantness, and our
relations throughout the Sharon divorce
case were entirely pleasant and friendly
and in the last proceedings had in this
litigation General Barnes and I acted
together as sole attorneys for the Sharon
estate."
On being shown General Barnes' letter
and after perusing it he said in emphatic
tones, "I indorse everything said by Gen
eral Barnes."

Labors.
. There will be another bed established in.
the incurable annex of the Children's

shall be the case. -
These young ladies comprise the Satur

existence for some five years. During that

cessful ones-and the proceeds have invari
ably been handed over to prominent charit
able bodies.

-J!!™' S ' « Wri ht . the president, Is very
enthusiastic on the subject. She says the
rest of the members are as delighted with
the project as she.
"Of course," she said, "we expect that
we are undertaking something that en
tails great responsibility, but this is not
M T e j nt . end to do we want to maintain
the bed right along.
"I do hope that it will be a success. The
youneer members of the orchestra espe
clal[y ar very confident and hopeful.
t Mr. Roncovieri has been conscientious
m his instruction, and I believe that we
have an orchestra that for execution can
be compared favorably with any amateur
orchestra in the country.
"When we look about us at the wee
mites to idling about the street with little
or no supervision, and reflect that the lives
they lead are likely to place them in need
of sKillrul nursing and good wholesome
food at any time, we all ought to quit
theorizing about how to manage to relieve
them, and get down to good, practical,
earnest work in their behalf.
"The Saturday Morning Orchestra has
merely joined the procession in behalf of
the children. And so we propose to estab
lish a bed in the Children's Hospital.
"The method we have chosen is to give
a concert at Golden Gate Hall on the even
ing of the 28th inst. This will be followed
by others at opportune times and the pro
