power to allow "any necessary repairs

of the Penitentiary, in his report to

Jackson CUrwn: Stripped of all sur
plusage, the n pert of the Senate Com
mittee, on IVnitcntiiiry and Prisons
makes the following poiuta:
1. That tb- li ivenior and Superin
tendent of the Penitentiary hud no
authority to contract for imjiiove
3. That li they had the powir to
contract, no contnu ts were, in .fact,
- .1. That the prices paid under the
alleged contracts were exorbitant.
All else is matter of inducement.
This report is imloix-d by Messrs.
lloone (chairman!, Powel and Morris.
A minority of the coinmittet
Messrs. Bin for. I and Casey-have
ollered u substitute for thei'ommit e-'s
esrt, in which they say 1 1 that the
(ioveriior and aiiH-riiiteinleiit were
aiithorie J to contnu t; r'i that con
traits were made, and I'll that the
prices paid wen' reasonable and just.
To settle the dilli relices between
the majority ami the minority a
special committee has been raicd on
tlie motion of Chairman Itoone,
This represents the attitude of the
penitentiary iplcHion before the Sell
ate at this time.
The rciort of the committee, which
we will call the majority report, bases
its conclusion that the tiovernor and
superintendent lire without power to
contract, on the rcx al of section '.i of
the act of January :;i, 177, which
authorized contracts lor improvements
not to exceed in the aggregate the en
tire amount paid by said lessees during
said lease, together with the amount
now (then) authorized bv law," (the
amount "authorized by fuw" lit that
time iH'ing $J'),(XK)) ; and they find no
warrant for such contracts in the act
of March l'i, 1HI, saying that said act
only "authorizes the superintendent
to contract for repairs, und does not
authorize any contract to Is- made for
improvements." The language of the
net of -March l.r, 1HSI, thus construed
by the majority, is as follows:
See. 7. lie it fiirllirr rumifil. That in
case of an accident to the H'iiitentiary
buildings, or any necessary repairs or
improvements actually needed, the
superintendent of the penitentiary
may contract for such repairs, w ith
the approval of tho tiovernor. I'Hin
the presentation of an itemized ac
count of such expenditures, approved
by the tiovernor to the Auditor of
Public Accounts, it shall be his duty
to draw his pay warrant upon the
Treasurer for the same, w hich shall be
paid out of the funds derived from
the lease of the penitentiary.
The minority construe thu language
to authorize contracts for improve
meiits Attorney-tiencral ditchings
and Messrs. Nugent fc MeWillie and
Judge S. S. Calhooii so construed it. It
seems U us too plain for argument
Cut C ey are right, und if anything
were necessary to conllrm us in this
view, it is found in the fact that the
legislature, by the net of March 12,
I8SI, having repealed nil laws author
izing cx'mliturcs for improvements,
on. the loth day of the tame month
passed the net in which the language
quoted is found.
Admitted that the Superintendent
had the right to contract, with the ap
proval of the tiovernor, nnd the con
elusion of the majority that no con
tracts were made is entirely too technical.
We believe that no written agree
ments: in the usual form of contracts,
approved by the tiovernor, were pre
sented to the committee; but the
superintendent verbally authorized
inanv of the smaller items of the ex
penditures, and the buildings ami
walls, for the price of which credit
w lis given to the lessees in their set
tlement, were constructed substan
tially according to written estimates
and specifications, und no credit was
allowed of any kind not approved by
the superintendent and the Governor.
It is not material whether the con
tracts were made by the superintend
ent and approved by tho ( Ioveriior be
fore the work tinder them was com
menced, or whether the superintend
ent made tho contracts before the im
provements were commenced and the
tiovernor approved tho contracts after
the improvements were completed.
Tho important question is: Did the
supermU'iHlent and the tiovernor con
cur that tho repairs were "necessary"
and that the imnrovonients were "uA
uully needed.? Further it may be
said that a verbal contract is as bind
ing oh a written one.
The most serious (siint of difference
between the majority and the minor
ity is tho value of the more important
improvements, the majority finding
mill mo prices paid were exorbitant.
They base their conclusions on this
point on the evidence of one L, Scullv,
an architect nnd builder, who resides
in Meridian. Mr. Scully examined
and valued the blacksmith shop, the
center tower and wall, the dining-room
and the nor! boast tower and wall, for
all which the lessees were allowed
:I0,4 12 11, while he says they are worth
The minority refit. to accent the
statement of Mr. Scully, but rely on
the statement of Messrs. It. M. J ay lor,
F. W. Olin, James Swan nnd Frank H.
Hull, all of w hom arc familiar w ith the
particular improvement above speci
fied and sav that they nre worth what
the State paid for them.
We do not know Mr. Scully, and
have but a limited nciiiuintnnce with
Mr. Swan, who is known to lie an ex
perienced architect and builder, but
Messrs. Taylor, Hull and Olin have
been citizens of Jackson for many
years, and their statement here on any
mutter would outweiuh that of unv
one citixen of the State. Thev are
truthful and honest men, and they
are competent judges of the cost of
such buildings as that referred to. In
(act Mr. 'lay lor is a carpenter and
building contractor, and Mr. Hull a
building contractor of more than or
CntU tlie contrary is clearly shown,
we shall Ixdievo that Mr. Scully is
There are nianv differences between
the majority amf minority w hich we
have not tune to notice. Our object
now is simplv to show that there are
two sides to the nucstion, and that as
to the most iiffH)rtant matters referred
to in the report of the majority, their
conclusions are scarcely warranted bv
the law Or the facts as we understand
The judgment of condemnation I
ngninst the Governor, the superin
tendent, nnd the lessees, which the
majority seem to invite, should be

For some years Ph. It. C. Fuiwwi

Pit. F'i.owkh, by birth, is a Western

he bus made a most remarkable record.
To better describe the rise of bis

Southern Illinois, a settlement estab

world. His advice hits brought him
thous nds of dollars in many instances.
A big price, some one will say. I'm,
but it was the pivot upon which
turned life und death to follow it was
to get well.
It is claimed that Pr. Flower can
tell when he sees a person, not only

examined her be would like hi in to
see if ho had any troubles, as he so
easily tired. "1 can cure your wife,"
the diH'tor said, but unless you have
the best of treatment yourself, you
will live but a tew months.
The Rev. MeSimnions neither be
lieved the statement that his wife
could lie cured, nor that his own life
was in danger, but as a lost vhanoo he
had his wife take treatment, saying
that when she was cured he might at- i
tend to himself. In a few months she
was well, as she is Unlay, but alas,

inclinations and tastes inclined him
toward New Kngland, and esiecial)y

make this city his future home.
There were many intimations that
he would not succeed in Boston as he

The Chicago Tiiwt, one of the great
est daily journals in the world, in
speaking of Pr. Flower, editorially, in
its issue of February 10, 1HSI, said:
"No physician of modern times has
made so profound a sensation in his
century, or ever, in so short a number
of years or at so early a period of his
life, encircled the world with his fame
or achieved by his actual works so
large a measure of professional renown
in Ids own country. Though not in
competition much less in antagonism
with the legitimate and recognized
profession of medicine in tho United
SUiU-s, nnd of other foreign and civil
ized nations where bis treatment has
bcpn applied by correspondence, and
where his name anil almost preternat
ural skill, though less familiar than in
America, are yet widely known, there
is yet no question thut the established
und authenticated cases of his most
absolutely successful treutmont of
many thousands of invalids who hud
boon tho despair of all contemporary
skill us in his well-known, rapid,
complete and final cure in numberless,
instances of (touted nervous ailments,
heart disease, rheumatism, nnd con
sumption of long Htandiiig, and in
ull forms of chronic derange
ment of tho vital functions, where
the patients, muny of them
prominent members of society, hud
been formally 'given over' by the pro
fession as hopeless, beyond the reach
of human remedies there is little
question but that his happy prestige
of 'life-saving whero the prolossion
have admitted failure, has made the
genius of Pr. Flower nil objectof envy
with too inanv physicians, even of his
own school. But the recognition of
his matchless skill, his wholly unintr-
ullclled Biiccess, and of bis eminent
services to humanity, have been too
univorsul to admit of' uny professional
or non-professional disparagements of
his modes of treatment. Throughout
Massachusetts and New Lnlaud there
is to-duy no phvsiciun in general
practice moresouglit by the profession
for consultation in trying and extreme
coses than Pr. It. C. Flower."
From the Chicago Inter Ocean : "X
few months ago u Western bunker
called on Pr. F lower to see if he would
go some (UK) miles to see his daughter,
A YOl'NO LADY W ITH C0SSUMITIOX,
"What will you charge?" said the
banker. "Two thousand dollars," re
plied Pr. Flower. "Too much," said
the old man. "My dour sir," said Pr.
Flower, "my time "will bo worth much
more than that at my office. 1 will
miss near a hundred patients if I go
with you; and my expenses, which
are very great, go on hero just the
same." "Well, I have come after you.
and I cannot go homo without you,
replied the gentleman. Pr. Flower
reached the banker's bouse the next
afternoon. After making a careful ex
amination, he stated that it was his
opinion that he could cure her, and, in
the lunguage of the old banker, that
announcement was tho first sound of a
joy-bell heard in his house for muny a
day, for every physician w hom ho had
consulted hod tho opinion that there
was no help for her. Pr. Flower com
menced treating her, and continued to
tlo so up to libout three weeks ago,
when he dismissed her a cured w oman.
"Pr. F'lower is deeply engaged in
his work, and tho interest he tukes in
his patients is like nnto that which a
father tukes in his children. He is
especially noted for his candor in al
ways telling his patients just what be
thinks as regards their case."
