No. 1. By Mr. Kingsland: Petition of Spencer Barnes and 50 other
citizens of Benton Harbor, relative to prison made goods.

On demand of Mr. Kingsland,
The petition was read at length and spread at large on the Journal, as

follows:

To the House of Representatives of the State of Michigan:

The undersigned manufacturers and citizens of Michigan, respectfully petition your honorable body to enact the proper legislation to cause all prison made goods to be branded as such. We believe that the goods manufactured by the various State prisons and houses of correction should be so branded. Your petitioner would respectfully call your attention to the fact that, if it is deemed wise to so designate prison made goods, that it should be done by branding instead of labels.

Your petitioners respectfully represent that the practice of manufacturing goods in these various prison institutions and placing them on the market in open competition with the labor of free men, operates to the great injustice of the latter. It is a great hardship both to the manufacturer and the laborer who comes in competition with these goods. We believe that we are entitled at least to the protection that would be afforded by the announcement to the public that the goods are prison made.

Trusting that the wisdom of your honorable bodies will discover some method for protecting honest free labor and manufacturers who are doing business on their own capital, your petitioners will ever pray.

Referred to the committee on Labor,

No. 2. By Mr. Amidon: Petition of D. C. Bigbee, S. W. Seeley and 32 others, relative to the issue cf railroad passes to members of the Legislature.

Referred to the committee on Railroads.
