Excerpt from Biennial Report of the State Board of Prison Directors of the State of California, for the Forty-Sixth and Forty-Seventh Fiscal Years: 1894/95-1895/96
To his Excellency james H. Budd, Governor of the State of California: We herewith have the honor to present our biennial report, as the State Board of Prison Directors, for the two years ending June 30, 1896, together with the reports of the Wardens and Clerks of the respective prisons at San Quentin and Folsom.
Two important subjects have claimed much of the time and attention of the Board: First, to keep the running expenses of the institutions under our control as low as possible, in order that the per capita for maintenance should always be at the minimum; and, second, to dis cover or formulate some plan whereby the prisoners may be so employed that they would earn enough to support themselves, and thus not be a tax upon the people of the State.
