Here is the rotten system, so I am informed, and if I am not correct, I would like the powers that be to deny it: A poor unfortunate gets sentenced to the provincial gaol for committing some crime, and tl-.ey are sent out by the dozen to build our roads, receiving for their' work 50 cents per day, doins the work which used to be paid for at the rate of per day for the laborer, and from 55.00 np for the farmer or rancher with a team. Maybe the powers that be will say we have got to find work for the prisoners; I will admit but, in my opinion, there is lots of work inside of the gaal property for them to do without coming outside and taking away the 'work' from the free laborer and farmers of this pro- vince.
