IUC SPEIGNER MILL WILL BE RUN ALL DAY AND NIGHT r t Montgomery, August 15.—(Special).—The ■state of Alabama 'has proven that it can manufacture cotton at a profit, and .it the same time utilize convicts to good advantage who have heretofore been more -of an expense than a producing class. ^Because of this fact and the further fact that the state has now a number of hands recently removed from the Montgomery ^Cordage company, Dr. Shirley Bragg, miesldent of the convict board, has de cided not only to run the cotton spin ning mill at Speigner in the daytime, but at night as well. | The mill has been a great success since flput to service by the state nineteen months ago on a new contract, by which fthe state and the manager of the plant are a partnership, the convicts being fhired by the partnership from the state, land the partnership, composed of the 'State and the manager, paying for them. 'The state, therefore, gets all the hire of the convicts and half tlio proflta of the mill. 1 For the nineteen months ending July l==== ."— ~ 1 | When yon want cheap, pretty pl> ttures of baby, or any other members yol family, remember MORTON Cor. Second Ave. and Nineteenth St. Snakes finest moderate priced photo graphs, as well as his special high jclasB pictures. | 31, the mill earned for the state net, the sum of $43,077.78, to which is to be added the hire of the convicts, $11,303.75, making a total cash return to the state on ac count of the mill for the nineteen months It has run. of $56,281.53. There have been used at the mill eighty convicts so far, or about an average of that many. The board has taken from the Cordage company 28, which will make the total force 108, plenty to divide up Into two shifts, which will work to ad vantage In this way. It Is expected that this will give a better run of profits, as It will allow a much larger volume of business. Another feature of the situation is that the earnings of the mill make prison No. 3, at Speigner come up In fine shape so far as earnings go. The mill earnings are credited to this prison, and make a good showing for it. It is a matter of history that some of the closest advisors of Judge J. M. Car michael, president of the convict board when the mill was opened nineteen months ago, advised against the contract that was made, fearing that it would not pay. The mill had been leased before, and had not been a success, and It wfaa feared that it would not do to make the trade wanted. However, the Judge, and It Is said, the governor, insisted on making it. and the result has been a wonderful success. Bulgarian Consul In Odessa.
