time In three years, wages are ad
vancing and there is a distinct short
age of unskilled workers, the Depart

November was per cent., although
in previous years the situation has
been reversed, due to whiter lay-off,

St. Margaret’s, 2,513; Strange and

coal operators and officials of the

That those who fail to have the

■storing up much futuro trouble for
themselves, as well as all pedestrians
passing over said pavements, is indi
cated by the Weather Bureau's fore
cast of a temperature approaching

weather for tomorrow. Should the
snow and Blush which have accumu
lated today be allowed to remain
overnight a slippery, ice pavement
will bo the inevitable consequence and
the usual number of sprains, frac
tures and even broken - limbs result
ing from falls on the sleet-covered
sidewalks may be anticipated.
Now. while the snow is soft and

see that this task is performed, this

upon which the slogan "do it now"

Warden Lankford Blames Frank
Harris For Inciting Riot That
Resulted In Injury To 18 Pris
ers By Birdshot Yesterday Aft
ernoon.
OFFICIAL PROBE TO
BEGIN TOMORROW
(By The AM*rlt4 Prcaa.)
BALTIMORE, Jan. 24.—Offi
cial investigation of the condi
tions leading to the riot of -101
inmates of the House of Correc
tion. in which IB pusoners were
peppered with bird shot and
three guards injured by missile**
thrown by the insurgents, will be
taken up tomorrow by the State
Board of Public Welfair. Emory
L. Coblentz, chairman of the
board, has requested detailed rc
norts from Warden William E.
Lankford and Dr. N. B. Steward,
“cut” physician.
Warden Scored Inmates
Warden Lankford today agaid
| scored the prison inmates for their
; rebellion, but admitted that their com
! plaints about the prison fare were
I just.
The head of the "cut” said that he
personally examined more than 100
plates of oatmeal this morning and
found worms in many.
”1 am not prepared at this time to
say for publication the true reason
for the unsatisfactory far* given the
r prisoners, but will fully state the cir
■ cumstances in my report : to the State
I Board of Public Welfare,” Warden
! Lankford replied when asked for an
explanation of evidence of worms iu
the food.
Lankford Blames Harris
Warden Lankford blames Frank
Harris, serving a term of 3 years for
the outbreak.
It has beon learned that the plot
was "hatched” by Harris during a
recreation period.
At that time, according to infqr
mation gathered by Lankford, Harris
went among the men telling them of
his plan for rebelling against the
prison food and demanded that they
go on strike with him.
Several men. the Warden says, told
him that Harris and other men ac
tually *beat them when they refused
to become a party to the uprising.
Seven In Solitary Confinement
Seven men including Harris are
still in solitary confinement and will
be kept there until the board has di
rected what punishment will be met
ed out to them. *
Four of the remaining 94 men. who
I I the Warden says, were more sinned
i j against than sinning, have been per
i j mlttecl to return to their tasks.
i; The others are being kept locked
’ in their cells and many of them are
J still in an ugly mood, Mr. Lankford
I said.
Shot To Disperse Rioters
I! Warden William Lankford saya tho
j guards used shotguns and revolvers
[only in an effort to disperse the pris
oners, only after attempts at persu-
I ( asion and then turning the lire hose
*:On them had failed and after they had
- 1 advanced threateningly on the war
i den and the eight guards who sur
■ rounded him at the end of the cor
i ridor in which the prisoners were as
sembled^
I Of the 102 men involved 89 were
negroes, 12 of whom now are in the
hospital.
\\ Coblentz Upholds Warden
| Warden Lankford tells the follow
ing story of how the riot occurred
and which is accepted by Emory L.
Coblentz, director of the State wel
• fare board, who says he does not see
‘ how Mr. Lahkford could have acted
otherwise. _
About 6:30 o'clock yesterday morn
{ : ln - the warden said, he was called
and*told that 102 of his 600 prisoners
had refnsed to obey their guards and
go to work. Going to one of tho cor
( ridors of the prison, he found the
| guards standing at one end, and the
( unruly prisoners huddled at another.
r ! “I asked the prisoners what was
the matter,” the warden said, “and
when they said that they wouldn’t
’ | work because they objected to tho
; food and the rules of the institution.
t l told them to go to work, and I would
, ’have Mr. Coblentz, who, I understand,
j was in the city, to come oat and see
j them, and would give them an oppor
i j tunity to talk to him. The
r had not then eaten their breakfast*
