REPORT ON CHAIN GANG BY
'TATE BOARD OF CHARITIES.
Mr. Robert Carter. foreman. Vis
ited March 25, 1918, by Assistant Sec
retary Broyles, with Sheriff Macfie.
Convicts present, 9 negroes. of whom
one was a trusty. Camped about nine
miles north of Winnsboro.
The score of this gang has app.:
ently increased 29 points on this in
spection over the score on third in
spection, made last year. This in
crease is due largely to the records
the Supervisor may be keeping in his
tically none. and on our visit this yew
he was away from his office. and hi
clerk knew nothing of any records
We wrote to the Supervsor about thE
matter later, and he answered shortly
but without telling exactly what his
records show. We inquired further,
but our letter remains unanswered.
We 4re giving him credit for keeping
the required records, and we hope he
is doing so.
We recommend that the County
Commissioners have the steel cage re
painted at once. to stOD the rust
has already started. 'ovide a new
cook tent, with a fly over it; give
the convicts fresh meat at least twice
a week instead of on holidays only;
and. obey the law regarding the remis
sion of one-tenth of all sentences over
6 months, life sentence excepted, for
good behavior. One-twelfth, we.were
told, is now allowed. It is inconsistent,
to say the least, to punish convicts
for law breaking, and then break the
law ourselves by failing to release
them when they have earned their
freedom. Finally, provide more medi
cal attention for the men by paying
the county physician a salary for-and
requiring him to-make a p'ysical
examination of each convict within 48
hours of his commitment, to vacci
nate against smallpox when indicated.
and to make regular weekly inspect
ions of the convicts' quarters and
The management of the gang by
the foreman is above the average.
However, he allows two convicts at a
time to bathe in the same tub and
water. We earnestly recommend that
he never allow more than one man to
bathe in the same tub of water. The
practice is filthy and disgusting, and
liable to spread disease. He should
give the men the freedom of the camp,
vithin limits, of course, on Sundays
nd holidays, and not keep them
locked up in their cage all day. Final
ty, the foreman should keep a record
book at camp, and in it should give
r.ame, age, race. date of commitment,
length of sentence, date discharged,
how discharged-that is, whether
served sentence, escaped, pardoned,
paid fine, sent back to jail, etc.
