By a disastrous fire occurring Sept 17, 1904, the prison lost three large factory building. and the store-house, together with supplies of ail kinds sufficient to last six weeks. It is worthy of note that throughout this trying experience there was not the slightest disorder among the inmates and that a large number of them were released in the yard to aid in fighting (3ran& tPaubexntle anb mmlv (Theatre.

And when along with this thexe is taken into consid ration the remarkable advance there to be seen in the methods employed for the protection of society against the ravages of crime, there Is just and ample ground for profound pride throughout the state. The figures given are for the period of two years ending Oct 31, 1904, the date of the latest biennial report of the Institution, and are calculated from the following summary: Tr. ending Tr. ending Oct. 31.

Small Per Capita Expense. For each inhabitant of Indiana there te a yearly outlay of 2 cents for all the purposes of the state prison; for every $100 of taxable property within the state there, 13 an annual contribu tion of about half a penny for this In- j stitution, containing 800 convicts, or ! one for every 3,250 persons in the state. j Remembering that every person is threatened by crime constantly and that nearly everyone is at some time made a viotim of it in come form, this seems to be an absurdly small price to pay for ' the work that is accom plished at Michigan City. It is gratifying to know that em inent prison experts from a number of states and countries agree that the Indiana penitentiary has in recent years risen to the front rank among penal institutions and has achieved a Btandard of efficiency that is at this time nowhere surpassed. If a greater proportion of the people would take less interest in the morbid and sen sational aspects of prison life and more in the true purposes for which penal establishments are maintained, public sentiment would substantially hasten the approach toward com pleter protection from criminal enter prise. Sensible Polioies Adopted. That so high a degree of efficiency has been attained concurrently with the practice of such economy as is ex hibited in the foregoing figures is due to the laws and policies inaugurated and enforced since the administration cf stato affairs was entrusted to the Republican party by the elections of 1S94. The deadly blight of partisan control has been eradicated from the prison by the superior and representa trre appointments of Governors Mount, Durbin and Hanly under the law re quiring non-partisan boards.

When they are occupied no penal institution in the country will be better housed than the Indiana State Prison. ? Binder Twine Industry Introduced. The gradual discontinuance of the admittedly fallacious contract labor system in the prison has made room for the introduction during the pres ent year of new enterprise to be oper ated on state account. This Is the binder twine factory, which has been installed and equipped at an invest ment of $31,000, and which requires the labor of seventy-two prisoners through the year. The output, aver aging 8,000 pounds a day, is sold tj toe farmers of the state at the small est advance over actual cost that is consistent with safety, allowing the state 50 cents a day for each convict employed. Contract labor has usually brought 40 to 8 Cents, though one ; Anier. Sugar j. i l l i-ni : nilicr. cents. In the manufacture of binding twine there is no difficulty in the matter of quality arising from the fact that the labor Is not free, and purchasers get the same quality that they would get from any factory which is one of the points that induced the board of con trol to select this particular industry. There is no line of industry open to the prison in which there would be so little conflict with existing inter ests and so wide a diffusion of the benefits. Every farmer uses binder twine and there is no other concern for its manufacture in the state. No other plant can produce the twine at so little actual cost or sell It regularly at so small a margin. The prison will enlarge its facilities as the business grows, and agriculture will reap the proflt. The Prison Farm Other interests and betterments, af- Thursday Amateur Night. HEW YORK STOCK MARKET.

Spoils System Abandoned. j By withdrawing th institution from ' the machinery of politics and estab- i lishing it as a business concern with certain objects to accomplish, two pur- : poses of prime importance were effect- I ed: The officers found that merit had : superseded "pull." The convicts found : great benefit in the superior standard of the officers, and they responded gladly in improved discipline within the walls and Improved behavior after release. It also resulted that the prison force, when withdrawn from political work and confined to the em ployment for which the state was pay ing them, performed a great deal more labor than they had been doing for the Institution and a tremendous economy in that respect was the consequence. Reform Features Adopted. The indeterminate sentence and pa role laws went into operation early in 1S37, since which t:me, as the experi ment has developed- in the hands of competent- managers, the theory of these laws has bean amply justified by experience. Under the former system of partisan management they would, have been a miserable failure.
