Raleigh, Sept Governor BIckett's raid on the state prison last week when be delivered from bodies of death half a dozen infants, a long with 16 men, was likewise such a raid upon the state treasury as to make many such surveys a financial embarrassment The largest amount of money ever Paid to prisoners who left in a body was this $1,905.53. Nineteen of the Prisoners really drew all the money. Two had forfeited their dime for every day of good behavior, bu under new law recovered the 10 cents for each day of service. The old system allowed a dime a day fo reach good behavior day. The new grants 10 cents for every act ual work day and it goes to dependents at the end of each year. Not until the kte, the very late, tardy, but riot tru ont or recreant general assembly gave authority to pay prisoners small wages, was any provision made in law fr this financial return, but a prison, policy that gives a pittance of n the la borer's earnings back to him when he Tfrent out. has always been sanctioned.
