Penitentiary May Mpke Shirts.
Governor Harvey, John W. Arring
ton, of Greenville, and' William Tara
dash, represonting the Sterling Con
pany, of Chicago, visited the peniten
tttiry recently with a view to seeing
what could be done toward establish
ing-a shirt or garment factory at the
prison in addition to the chair fac
The governor Is not entirely satis
fied with the work of the chair factory
and believes some additional effort
would be fruitful. He will likely rec
omnmend to the legislature the estab
lishment of a shirt factory or some
garment plant to augment the pres
ent effort. Governor Harvey believes
a good deal of effort is lost and that a
shirt factory would be a paying prop
Mr. 'T'aradash has an excellent prop
osition, his company furnishing every
thing but the labor, which the peniten
tiary would provide. This plan Is
working successfully in other states,
the governor was told.
With' a shirt or garment factory
many prisoners who are now unable
to do work could be placed in gain.
ful employment. Prisoners on tha
county chaingang who are incapaci
tated, could be brought to the prison.
and put to work at the machines.
In connection with the visit.and the
inspection, the governor said he was
against the present plan of having
long tern criminals on the county
chain gangs and favored a plan where
by all persons serving more tha -two
or three years should be put in the
penitentiary. On the county chain
gang favoritism is likely 'to be prac
ticed and escape is easy on a number
of the chain gangs.
Prisoners working in the proposed
new factory could be taught a trade
and when they havb served their time
would be able to go out into the,
world witli a gainful occupation.
The governor also believes prison
ers should receive pay for a part of
their labor and this kept by the prison
officials for them so that when they
serve their time they will have funds
to make a new start in life. In case
the defendant has a family dependent
upon him, the chief magistrate be
lieves part of his labor should be
given to the family.
