The Penitentiary Commissioners Charged
With Violation of the State Constitution
The Way State Institutions Have Keen
Ths International Cooper's Exchange
has declared war on Gov. Fifer snd his
associates in the executive department of
the state government, all of whom have
been found guilty of fostering and nurture
icg the convict labor sjstem. as though it
was a pet "infant industry." in violation
of the state constitution. The state ad
ministration has been arraigned by the
Anti-Convict Labor association, whose
Uwjer was Gov. Oglesbv's secretary
Further proof is now submitted by the
International Coopers Exchange, an
influential organization, which issues an
address in reply to the recent utterances
of the Joliet penitentiary commissioners
The officers of the exchange characterize
the action of Mr. Fifer's commissioners
as a "tefogging effort" to refute the
charges already made and substan
tiated bv Judge Altgeld. The com
missioners sra denounced for their
t nxiety to "shift the responsibuitj onto
onto the legislature when they "ought to
know, and doubtless do know, that the
amendmer t to the constitutiou adopted
November 2. 1866, bavin? a majority of
over 19. COO votes says that "hereafter it
shall be unlawful for the commissioners
cf the penitentiaries or of the refoima
tories of this state to let by contract to
any person or persons, corporation or
corporations, the labor of any convict
confined within said institutions.
Falsifying the Farts,
"In the face of this constitutional pro
vision," ;he address continues, "you fal
sify the facts when you tell the people
ihat you are more than anxious and fill
ing to carry cut the constitutional amend
ment in letter and spirit." Then the ad
The amendment to the constitution
was voted on Nev. 2, 16-S6, and adopted
by over 19 000 votes on Nov. 2. 1886, the
govt rnor issued his proclamation declar
ing the amendment to be a part of the
constitution of Illinois. Prior to the
adoption, the commissioners, anticipat
ing the adoption of the amendment to
the constitution, entered into contracts
with contractors to continue for eight
years. Dow willing and more than
anxious the commissioners were to
enforce the amendment let the
people judge. November 16. 1SS6. 14
days after the people of this state said
tbat no convict should be let to contrac
tors, you le: the labor of 25 convicts for
the period of eiht years.
Republican fcuIlltiRsrT- Kxpoaed,
In 1SS9 you cemmsnced operations
under what is known as piece-price con
tract, which is ' the ro luct of the labor
and skill" of prisoners in the peniten
tiary. Prior to tie adoption of the
amendment it was let by contract tne
labor of convicts." What a beautiful
piece of sku'.l-duggery that is. "The
product of the labor and skill of pris
oners in tte penitentiary, wnen tae law
sj s you shall not let by contract "the
labor of convicts.
As to the lea entered by the commis
sioners in justification of ibeir action, the
co. pers assert tbat "tfce spirit of the con
stitutional amendment was not s i much
to m.ke the penal institutions of tbis j
state self-sustiiDing as it was to afford
some relief to honest free labor which
whs driven to the will by ruinous compe
tition with the prison contractor."
"Th? convict must pay his way," lays
the peciuatiary commissioners- ,-Notn-ing
but your blood money is acceptable.
in order that the state may not become
bankrupt." And Gov. Fifer and bis
commissioners both exclaim in the same
breath, "we can point w.th pride to the
management of the Joliet penitentiary
which has been a source of profit to the
state," and to the prison rings.
Say the Coinmbwionen Lie.
The commissioners say a committee of
the employing coopers met them and af
ter a long discussion of the question of
fered no other solution than the forming
of a trust with Director VVinterbotham.
This is a willful perversion of the facts.
Tne coopers of Illinois would not believe
Winterbotham under oatb, and as far as
entering into an agreement with him is
concerned, it would not be entertained
for one moment, as he has baselv violated
an agreement made Jane, 1886, which
agreement was signed by J. H. Winter
botham & Bon and the coopers to tbis
effect: That in consideration of the
coopers not striking against prison bar
rels at the stock yards they, Winter
botham & Sons, would agree to limit
their output one half, which would mean
that they would make only 500 pack
ages a day at Jo'iet and the same
number at Micbi?n City. Ind., and
tbat as his contract expired he would
not renew them. Tbis contract was
drawn up by Winterbotham & Sons
and submitted to tbe coopers, a copy of
which we still possess. Tney kept this
agreement but a few months, when they
contracted witn 25 more convicts as tbe
warden's report to tbe Thirtieth general
assembly will show. They resorted to
the subterfuge of having J. L. Molt, the
son in-law of Winterbotbam, and a citi
zen of Indiana, contract for these 25 con
victs jost after the adoption of the con
stitutional amendment. All the bills
rendered and receipts made oat by tbe
prison clerk for these convicts were in
the name of Winterfcotham & Sons. O r
committee showed that at that time J. H.
Winterbotham was making enough
cooperage to supply the market, and
that if some relief were not afforded in
removing some of the so-called piece
price convicts the cooperage industry
would be wiped oat oFexistence.
Gov. Filer's Broken Promise.
When our committee met Got. Fifer
and the commissioners and explained to
tbe governor tbe wrong that was being
perpetrated in the name of the state, the
governor acknowledged that he had
been a straneer to the real condition of
affairs at Joli-t. and he, in the presence
of the committee, ordered the commis
sioners to remove all piece-price convicts
from the cooper shop. This Commis
sioner Jones opposed, and when the
governor insisted that it should be done
Jones became s icctnsed tbat he put
on his hat ard in-olentlv left the confer
ence. Gov.Fifer assured ourccmmilte that
he was more than satisfied tbat a wrong
was teing done acd that we coulld rely
on him to nht it. bo convinced were
the committee that he was in earnest tbst
they refused to ba interviewed by news'
paper men at the capital and declared
tbat they would cot in any wy be a par
ty towards firaisbit,g anv political capi
tal to Fifer's enemies. But his pubii:
encore and praise of the management of
the Joliet penitenti-try has convinced us
of one or two things, namely, that the
governor was a creature of tbe riogs who
were a power superior to the chief execu
tive, and would permit no dictation even
from him; or that he is not stating tbe
facts. He has attempted to pour water
down our backs, then tell us we are
sweating. Yet tbe board ot penitentiary
commissioners state thit nothing was re
fused tbe coopers that they could suggest.
The commissioners say th-tt Winter
botham has but 7.000 tierces stored in
Joliet prison, but citizns of Joli.n claim
they can locate 150,000 just ouuide the
The commissioners ly great stress
upon the fact that no general assembly
since the adoption of tbe constitutional
amendment made any provision for the
employment of the convict. Tnis is a
very weak apolozv for the systematic
violation by them of the organic taw of
the s'ate. It is h well k .owo fact to all
who have been iatertstel in this qnt-s-lion,
that Commissioner J.ines d;d ail in
his power to prevent anv law being en
acted looking toward the s t'ution of th s
question. The b-rd of p'-nilentiary
