WANT LEGISLATURE TO TAKE ACTION The serious competition offered the broom manufacturers of the state by convict and workhouse labor may re- conditions and abuses which havo grown out of the employment of that kind of labor, resulting in a situation by which the business of broom manu facture! s is seriously threatened. The matter has been brought to the at tention of Canton broom makers by a protest from Urbana manufacturers which has already been sent to the state legislature and It is probable that steps will bo taken hero to havo tho Canton manufacturers lormulato and sign a siinllur protest to their representatives at Columbus. Charles Falla, manager of tho Stark Brush and Broom company uuld Mon day In discussing tho matter: "The competition from pribon labor which we are now" obliged to meet. Is cer tainly unjust and unfair to a legiti mate business and imposes upon the manulactuicr who pays a fair price for his labor, conditions which he ousht not be obliged to faco. Though wo hive tried protests lime and again with out visible success, I am sure nothing enn be lost by another effort to cull tho legislature's attention to the pasting evil that Uireatens our tinde and the Canton firms are will ing to do their share towards secur ing some legislation that will better presont conditions." In their protest tho Urbana manu facturers say: "Unfair prison competition! in tho manufacture of brooms and brushes in Ohio threatons tho very llfo of the businoss outsldo tho ponal institutions, Wo s.it;gcst that the now code makers do something to remedy this creat iu justice, In the interest of both manu facturer and workmen.

Union labor has been protesting against prison labor, claiming that It tends to cheapen labor and militate against tho advautage of the masses. It was with this beforo him that Robinson began to figure In what piactical and advantageous way tho direction of prison labor could ba de flected from Its present course. Ho figured that It would De to tho advautage of the people to havo free text books furnished in all tho public schools, as In Pennsylvania and other states, and that tho chtapesr way to secure this end would be to install printing plants In all penal Institu tions, under competent workmen and have tho books turned out In this way, he claims, tho stato would ba tho beneficiary Instead or private, ir divlduaR This id' a will be embodied In tho resolution which Mr. Robinson has prepared and will present toefoio tho convention at Cambiidge.
