R. II. Sims, warden state prison.
Parole Clerk Sanders, secretary ot
prison, Wansiee and Matt Bryan, tes
tified on behalf of the prison manage
ment after which Charles Osfcorn,
secretary board of control. Knott
Guild, of Red Rock. Colonel Tom
Weeden and Price, Florence mar
chant also testified.
The evidence of Sims was a great
disappointment. -Hie admitted the
truth of EyLnge. the murderer, hav
ing been permitted to drive Into Flor
ence with Kate Barnard; but he de
nied that honor men, generally are
permitted to go and come in Flor
ence without guard.
He denied that Jack Munroe had
ever been outside of the prison, ts
cept under guard and said that Ron
Anderson, the Gila county convict,
was trusty at the prison when be
look charge
It developed from Sims' testimony
that when Andenon bought liquor at
a Florence bar. he did so for SIma.
He admitted that several Instances
had come to his attention where con
victs in road camps had secured li
quor aad become Intoxicated. Ho
dien a distinction between honor
men and trusties, and said it wa3 thu
trusties of the state prison, who wero
?ermltted to go about in citizen's at
tire.. According to testimony he gavu
the gravity of the ofTense with which
a convict was accused did not In any
way affect the right or the prisoner
to be made an honor man. Sims thon
discussed several special instances
where convicts had been permitted
to go and come without guard, des
cribed the circumstances and gave it
as h's opinion that the present sys
tem was. in his Judgment, the best
way to handle the state pri.son. It
developed that Sims had been Pur
chasing supplies for the prison and
later reported his action to the board
of control which gave its approval.
One of the purchase was a bill ot
goods from the Old Dominion Co. at
.Globe, In which Governor Hunt is a
large stockholder A mild sensatlou
was created when Osborn, secretary
of the board of control, said that tie
board had approved of this purchase
in the face of the state statute pro
hibiting any member of the board to
benefit in any contract for the pur
chase of goods.
The testimony of Sanders,, parole
clerk, largely confirmed the evidence
given by Sims as to gentlemanly
conduct of honor men. Bryan, eaif
tain of guard, gave testimony that all
convicts except trusties were at ail
times under guard, btit on inquisition
said that men under ' sentence of
death had been given privilege of the
prison yard and even allowed to aa
slst around the administration office.
It had Ibeen charged In the testi
mony thaj WansU-e, secretary of pris
on had charged a certain Florence
merchant 10 per cent to collect a bill
due him and Wansiee went on the
stand today and admitted the trans
action ut declared that he acted not
as a prison official but as a prlvnte
in concluding for Florence peti
tioners, Weeden bitterly assailed
the prison management and deolated
hope that relief would oe given resi
dents of the city of which he is may
or and laws on the statute books con
cerning conflnoment of prisoners un

will agree to a report demanding that
