The conduct of the prisoners
Vioa Y,oan in t.hp. main of SUCh a
character as to exhibit a marked
improvement, owing to the strict
enforcement of the salutary rules
and regulations provided for their
T nVsirfi to call vour attention to
the present overcrowed condition
of t.hfi cftll-house. each one of the
oild hpino-occumed bv five and in
some instances six prisoners
should the receipts of prisoners in
the near future be proportionate to
tiincp of t.hfi last two Quarters, it
will be absolutely necessary to pro
vide more cell room for their ac
commodation; in this respect, I
would recommend that if it be as
sured that the prison is to be per
manently located in its present
nndti'nn t.hfi rpnuisite number of
cfills bfi added to the cell-house
and that in their construction, the
rock now on nana ana i-nut lu uc
rlrfissed in the future by the prison-
ers, be used.
The food furnished the prison ers
hnR hpfin maintained at its usual
standard and is in every way, suf
ficient and satisfactory; during the
present heated term however i
would recommend that a propor
tionate quantity of vegetables be
fnrnishpd in lieu of some of the
staple articles of diet, as the
change in addition to being most
welcome to the inmates, will be to
auite a degree conductive to better
health; these vegetables can, 1
think, be procured at a lower figure
than the articles for which it is
proposed to substitute them so
that the change will also possess
the merit of decreasing the per
capita cost of provisions.

Yuma Ariz., June 30, 1894.
To the Honorable,
... ThomasnGates, . '
Superintendent of the TerritoriaL
-Sib:. . . '
Herewith please find my report
of the sanitary condition of the.
prison for the quarter ending June
30 1894, together with a brief
resume of the .hospital work and
expenses for the past two years.
One hundred and forty ,. cases.
have been treated during the quar
ter, of these, fifteen were continued
under treatment from the- previous
quarter, one hundred and nineteen
(119) . were returned . to duty re-
lieved.or cured; one was discharged
on expiration of sentence; one on
commutation of sentence; one died,
of -consumption and four were,
pardoned. Of the four pardoned by
the Governor, one had a chronic,
abdominal abcess and two were.
incurable consumptives; worthy
objects of the Executive clemency
so judiciously bestowed.
There are fifteen cases, remain
ing under treatment; two of whom-
are consumptives who are kept
apart from all the. other prisoners.
The completion of the "Consump-:
tive cell" by nicely ceiling it and
putting in an artificial stone floor,
gives us a good place in which, to
keep such patients,.
Two .surgical operations were per
formed for the removal of necros
ed bone and the results in both
cases have been very satisfactory.
A case of mental derangement,
No. 950, Blaine, has during the
past month, given us considerable
extra work, but we hope to restore
him to health here and thus save
the expense of sending him to the.
asylum, though should he become
more seriously afflicted we may be
obliged to' make that change.
The . prison buildings, 3'ard and
surroundings have been kept in a
in a goad sanitary condition, con
sidering the amount of wall-building
and other work which has been
done which is accompanied with
During the quarter in addition
to the above there were 3194 pre
scriptions filled for cases too trivial
to be entered on the hospital record
of cases treated. ...
The number of cases treated
.during the year ended. June 30,
1893, was three hundred and nine
teen and the cost was seven hand
red and twenty-one . dollars and
four cents ($721.04) at an average,
cost per patient of two dollars and
twenty-three cents ($2.23), while
during the year ending June 30,
1894, there were four hundred and
fifty-two cases treated and the cost
is six hundred and two dollars and
fourteen cents ($602.14) and the.
average cost per patient is one dol
lar and thirty-three cents, showing
an average saving of ninety cents
per patient treated.
This also covers the expense of
(13,246) thirteen thousand two
hundred and forty-six prescrip
tions given out during the past
year to patients whose illness were
not considered of sufficient gravity
to be entered in the hospital record
of cases treated.
I have been greatly aided in my
work and efforts at economy in the
hospital by the faithful services of
the hospital steward, Frank Leslie.
I certify that the above report is.
correct and true, to the best of my
knownledge and belief. -
