That is the inscription over tli
great fireplaces in the Pennsylvania
Building at the Charloston Exposi.
tion. This building constitutes one
of the most significant chapters in
the now history of old Charleston. It
is not only significant of the good will
andH sympathy of the descendants of
Father Penn for their follow coun
t rymen of tho Sout h, great and grati
fying as they are, but has the added
significance of a strong commercial
ismr which is equally gratifying. Al
ready the Trades League of Phila
delphia, one of the most potent or.
ganizations of the country, has taken
up the idea of direct steamer commu
nication betwf-en Philadelphia, Char
leston and the West Indies, and if
the West Indies, why not South
America? Philadelphia has been
the site of a great ship building in
harbor which is fretted at regular
dustry for many years our in
dustry hampered by a contracted
intervals by great fields of ice, and
where all outdoor work is impossible
at times. Her emissaries must see
that at Charleston exist all the possi
bilities for the greatest shipyard in
America. Timber, iron, steel, cheap
labor, abundant dockage and harbor
facilities, already the chosen site of
one of the general government's
naval stations, and a climate which
makes out door labor, not only possi
ble, but plernsant, every day in the
year. In fact Charleston is being
rediscovered by these gentlemen of
the East, and there is every reason
to hope that the discovery will result
in mutual good from a commercial
view point, as it, has already resulted
inI a genuiue feeling of kindness and
good will. When Gov. stone gathers
his cohorts and goes down to cele
brate the Pennsylvania Day at the

The time is rapidly approaching
for State politics to begin to get
active in South Carolina and in two
months things will be lively indeed.
The first steps towards the opening
of the biennial campaign are to be
taken next n'onth. The city and
county Democratic clubs all over the
State are to hold their meetings for
the purpose of ro organization and
electing members of the county ox
ecutive committees, and transacting
such other business as may come be.
fore them, on the fourth Satuiday in
April, which falls this year on the
Then the next stop will be the
holding of the county conventions to
elect delegates to the State conven
tion to twice the number of repre
gentatives the county I as in the
general assembly, to choose a county
chairman, and express views on any
question that may be before the peo
ple. These conventions will be com
posed of delegates elected by the
elubs, one for each 25 members on
1he club roll and one for each ma
jority fraction thereof. The county
conventions will be held throughout
he State on the first Monday in May
Then will come the State conven.
,ion on the third Wednesday in May
-the 21st this year. It will have
o transact all the usual business of
the State convention of the party.
It appears now that one of the
principal matters will be the pro
posed reduction of the number of
!ampaign meetings from forty to a
3onsiderably smaller number. The
matter is being agitated just now,
md it is considered likely that the
rarce of going to every county seat
will be stopped.
This year the State has to choose
not only a successor to United States
senator McLaurin and a full set of
State officers, but new county oflicers
will have to 1e nominated. Con
gressmen also will have to be in the
tield, and the redistricting of the
State will make these races particu

officers is now just beginning to fill

COAD) WVOIEKING PL-AN.
Id",&n of UinIzing Prisoners in ,Jil A waiting
Trial so Th'lat They W il Not ho a Dens<i
In his address before the general
assembly recently, Mr. J. A Holmes,
state geolo4ist of North Carolina,
advanced a novel proposition. He
urged that the p)risoners who lie in
jail awaiting trial be used to work
the county roads. In reply, it might
be urged that these prisoners could
not be worked before their conviction,
but Mr. Holmes does not propose to
use coercion, but to allowv the pris
oners the option of working the roads
or of lying in jail pending the meet
ing of the sessions court.
Mr. Holmes produced statistics to
show that the loss to South Carolina
from having prisoners lie in jail is
over $75,000 a year. A case may be
supposedl to show where this cost
arises. John Jlones might be0 comn
mitted to jail in December by a mrg
istrate on some trifling charge, jusnt
serious enough to he beyond the juris
diction of the magistrate. If the
prisoner is a poo darkey, unable to
give bcrnd, he rmust lie in jail until
March or April, or whenever the next
t,erm of the court is held, lie costs
the State 20 cents for every slay he
lies in jail. If he is there 30 (lays,
his "dieting'" or "rashions"' bill itf
$0. As there are hundreds of such
cases in every county the cost aggre
gates into the hundreds of dollars,
and $75.750 was the total thus ex
pended for the whole State in the
twelvo months for which Prof.
Ilotnmes had statistics.
Now, his suggestion is this: That
an act. be passed allowing the prisoner
to make a voluntary contract with
the sheriIT and county commissioners
that if they will release him from
jail and turn him over to the county
supervisor, he will agree to be worked
just ats convicted criminals are
worked. That if ho is acquitted by
the jury, tlien he will be paid at a
fair rate of compensation for every
(lay which he has spent ati work for
the county. If he be convicted by
the jury, he will be given credit for
the number of days he has worked
and this will be deducted from his
There are objections which could
be of'ered. For instance it might
be urged that it is not humane or
just to have these prisoners work
alongside of convicted felons unless
their guilt is certain. Futhornore,
it might be said, prisoners are not
to be worked on the chaingangs
when the term of their servitude is
for a period longer than 10 years,
and the prisoner himself or nobody
else might know for how long his
sentence would bo. But these are
details which could be considered
Prof. Holmes made no extended
defense of the suggestion. His time
was limited, and he alluded to this
-natter in a few brief remarks. But
it is worthy of consideration, espec
ially in view of the enormous annual
expense of the State. No doubt
many an unconvicted prisoner would
prefer to be in the fresh air at work
-even on the chaingang-especially
as he works with the purpose of
shortening his sentence or of being
paid for his time if he is adjudged
innocent of the charge.
In other States the annual cost of
keeping up or feeding prisons con
fined in the county jail pending
trial is much heavier than
it is in South Carolina. The follow
ing figures are taken from statistics
compiled by Prof. Holmes in connec
tion with this suggestion.
In Georgia, 120 of the 137 coun
ties reported. But 27 of those coun
ties use convicts on the county roads,
although these counties engaged
the labor of 940 convicts. The num
ber of prisoners reported kept in
county jails in Georgia pending trial
was 1,095, the average cost being 35
cents per day. The aggregate ex
pense was $160,750. The average
cost per convict per day forguarding,
etc., was 26 cents. Georgia pays
75 cents per day for hired labor to
wor k on the roads.
In North Carolina reports were
received from all of the 97 counties.
But 24 counties in that State use con
victs on th)e public highways. The
numbier of convicts thus employed
was 643, andl the average cost of
guarding, etc., was 24 cents per day.
There were 607 untried prisoners in
the jail, costing the State 80 cents
per (lay each; an aggregate expense
of $103,750. "Free labor" on the
roads costs 75 cents per day.
In South Carolina 36 of the 40
counties reported. Thirty two use
convict labor -579 convicts, at a cost
of 18 cent per day each. There
were 404 in jail awaiting trial, at a
cost of 30 cents per day each, aggre
gating $75,750 for the year. "Free
labor" on roads -costs 75 cents a day
in this State.
The above statistics relate to nor
mal conditions. This year the ex
pense will be heavier, for in a num..
ber of counties the jury law was con
tested last fall, and many prisoners
wvere remanded to jail, where they
remained at a heavy expense to the
county until this spring. On the
other hand the legislature reduced
the cost of dlieting prisoners to 20
cents per dlay by general law. Here
t'fore ini somie counties the fee was
less than in other counties. Whether
Mr. Holmes' suggestion may be wise
or may be radical it calls attention
to the eniornmous expense incurred
through the lawlessness of men arnd.
the State is now endeavoring to so
utilize the labor of convicted felons
that the best financial returns may
be realized. The building and main
taining of good roads is generally
conceded to be the proper use of
