EXPLOIT CONVICTS System of West Virginia Pen Condemned By Law* vers Committee Morgantown, W. Va.,—This state's record on the industrial field, with its gun men and private armies, is similar to its treatment of helpless convicts who are housed in its peni tentiary at Moundsville. The system at this prison was condemned by Howard Holt, chairman of the com mittee on crime of the state bar asso ciation, which held its annual convent ion in this city. Mr. Holt said there are 1,585 men in Moundsville, and most of them are exploited by con tractors, who secure this labor for 70 cents a day. "Under this contract," said Mr Holt, "each prisoner must average from 12 to 18 workmen's shirts per day. This-means that one of these shirts costs from 4 to 6 cents. The material costs 36 cents, and the shirt sells for $1. It is understood that there are now more than 500 convicts working under this contract and the contractor and associates make a pro fit of hundreds of thousands.of dollar yearly." Mr. Holt said that the cells in this prison are five feet wide, eight feet long and seven feet high. "Into many of these cells the sun has never shown," he added. And it is needless to say that in such limited space there is no room for exercise. In nearly every case two men are confin ed in each cell. With the utmost care that can be exercised by any admin istration these conditions breed immor ality and degradation. There are only about five acres of yard space for these 1,585 men to occupy. They are crowed in the shops, in the yard, and at night confined in these unsanitary cells. There is no time nor opportun ity for privacy. Men are infected with tuberculosis. Some of them die within the walls and some of them go forth to spread the disease in the outside world. "We regard such treatment as in human.

Vogel, 649 Forest ave. I '•#.* A United States marshal of Tennes see, had his conduct under question. Special investigators werg sent to check up. They made their report. That report was turned over to the United States attorney general. The Memphis Press demanded that the report be given to the public. The press insisted that something was rotten in the state of Denmark. That report never saw the light of day. Why? The officials who hired the booze hounds found that their hands were dirtier than the slimy hands of the cesspool cleaners. If Henry Ford has any time to spend outside of cluttering up the roads and highways with his product, he might find it quite interesting to delve into the question of how it is profitable to be a public official and receive honest American dollars for being a hpyo crite.

McCUMBER The honorable mayors of the slv eral minor municipalities of Ohio and other states, do not hire law enforce ment officers upon the personal integ rity of the applicant, it appears. They hire them for their reputation as outcasts from the so-called level of society. *The lower down in that strata the more valuable their serv ices. And what is more, this applies to the selection of some deputy United States marshals. They are not selected for their personal integrity but for their political maneuvering ability. And who selects them Ask your congressmen, ask your senators, also your representatives. The Ka leidoscope has no fight with any hon est man. He does not say that every man is a politician, but he does most emphatically say that if Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee and several other states have not been able to debauch their citizenship with the hypocrisy of the side door in two, three and four score years, then the falls of Niagara do not run true to form. Mobile, Birmingham, Ala bama, Paragould, Arkansas Coiiier ville, Tennessee, have been in the ten der care of the mayor agents for de cades. If you want corn liquor from the wood, get in touch with the poli ticians from some of the United States marshal's office.

The Kaleidoscope does not and will not deal in scandal. He will tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Your personal life is your personal property and personal affair, but the moment you accept or take public office, then your every act becomes public property and subject to public criticism or public approbation. This old world of ours still has a sufficient number of white men and red-blooded Americans in it to protect their homes. And the time is not far distant when as in pioneer days, behind every door there will be a musket or a sawed-off shotgun. Not necessarily to protect the home owner from the banditry inclined, quite as much as it will be to protect, them selves from the thugs, thieves and outcasts now being hired by the may ors of villages in Ohio to "shake Smoke /•Yi% Strictly Union Made Cigars ASK YOUR DEALER' FOR THEM The Cigar Makers'Co-op tTtf'lH C».

Only recently I chanced to meittl the village mayor who had gained a most "envious" reputation as being a severe actor on so-called speed driv ers of automobiles. He fined almost every car driver who passed through his village of a Sunday. He fined them the stipulated amount of $18.40 religiously. And then he awoke to the fact that the state officials backed up on his crude work, and told him that the law of banditry no longfr could profitably be worked in the state of Ohio. Mind you, the hun dreds of auto owners who had been held up at the muzzle of a gun or the yawning doors of an insect-infed ed calaboose, now can ride through that same town at ten miles an hour where formerly they were pinched for driving six miles an hour. That mayor had a "conscience." He had more than that. He had a board if councilmen behind him who were dead in love with easy money. Thus the mayors of our several villages, citifli and towns are using a something, not to enforce the law, but to carr^v.j out their principles as they read thettt —for revenue only—banditry. rT%i I Y V 5 We've made 0LOWN '5 CIGARETTES so good that iSL -i-: •t". 5LN pii Phone pii Hi Cincinnati Ohio *5* X."
