EMPLOY CONVICTS ON ROADS
Satisfactory Results Reported From
Twelve States Where Experiment
Has Been Tried.
Twelve slates have tried tlie em
ployment of convict labor for road
building thoroughly, and report that
the results have been satisfactory. 1
They are Arizona, Oklahoma, Florida, j
Maryland, Illinois, Louisiana, Rhode
Island, New Jersey, Wyoming, Utah,
Idaho and Nebraska.
Since the United States government s
has made Its great appropriations for
good roads, which the states are du
plicating as the federal law requires
as fast as their legislatures meet, the ;
department of agriculture

oils of road building In the states. :

that where the convicts are well fed
and housed they work well, save the I
state In construction costs, and them- ;
selves profit physically and mentally. !
