Put Children to Work in Mill to Make Asheville Reformatory Self-Supporting, 1914

From the Aug. 13, 1914 issue of The High Point Review.

Asheville—A movement is under way looking to the placing of the Buncombe county reformatory n a self-supporting basis and it is probably that a proposition will be made to the City of Asheville and the county of Buncombe within the next few days by an Eastern Carolina hosiery man. It is stated that he is willing to lease the water power at the reformatory with the understanding that the children work for him eight hours a day. They would make the institution a self-supporting one.
