The great dra*-back to our e

THE NEWS AND HERALT's sug
gestion that the jail be removed
to a more private place has mel
with approval by many. .The
publicity of the location and the
depreciation of near-by property
are strong enough reasons foi
this step to be taken. Two good
additional reasons are worthy o~
the closest consideration.
The first of these is the imper
fect sanitation that must neces
sarily exist on account of the un
suitableness of the building foi
the purpose for which it is used.
The cramped quarters also in
which the building is located
do not admit of the proper
sanitation on the outside. The
purposes of a prison are effected
oy confinement, and the subject
ing of them to unnecessary pun
ishment in the matter of health
is wholly criminal on the part
of the county.
The danger also that may arise
in the time of fire is a good rea
son why the property should be
located to itself. Should adjacen'
property catch fire the prisoners
would have to suffer the torture
of anxiety.as to their safety, or
they would have to be removed
from the jail.- Should the latter
be necessary, they would stand a
fine chance of getting loose.
All in all the argument is
wholly in favor of sellhng the jail.
The whole matter is referred to
