The temaiuder ate embraced undtr

for murder. We cuiiKiatuiats our fol
low cituouu uuon tbe ligbt prevalence
of ( rime u rutur tbe g aver oUenser. It
argues that our population is a re
specter of the law, and that class
wbicn constitutes tbe v.cious, a ruly
and immoral are only aa insignificant
portion of it.
a Your Honor instructed us to make
an examination of the books and busi

VARIOUS COUNTY OFFICIALS,
B well his thi sa of the Taxing District,
going tack two yeats. You gave us
stvaial 'special" jurrs o assist in
performing this labor. You will see

quite volumin us, tuat your "regu

The Eubcommiltets have performed
the duties aesigned thi-m promptly,
impartially and faithfully, and whoie
there are, or have been, any abuses
or ineulantita by cflicia s, tuey have
not failed to lepott toe same. We in
repor-, which we herewith submit and
present as a pari of this report.
The comuiittees make a number of
"suggestions" and "i ecommtnilatioae"
in toeir report concerning tbe various
coumy offices, all of which are timely
and to tbe point. The office of Coal
man of the County Court La a veiy

financial agent of tbe county, and s

officials, and it requires a man of

fully and prjinpily.
We cenuut rnuutr.t) in this sum

see the sum is now very large and
many of tbe loans are uucolleclab'e.
When a law Is made it should be done
with every safeguard to secure its tol

Thesj biem.iat grand jmy inves'iga
tiooe, inaugurated ix years ago, hive
been produc ive of much giod. The
taxpayer and all good citizens bave
an interest in and a right to koow
jutt how the county offic als conduct
their offices. The expenditue of sev
eral hundred dollars lor this labor is a
laving of t louesnds to the county.
Good oflicials bave been known to
"go wrong," but when any ofhcial
knows his official acts will be investi

and keep within the spirit of
the law. When an official's attont'on
is called to irreguVities in his office
by a grand ju y it thould be heeded
by him, and not disrrgardad as it has
been done in instance hereto'ore, fjr
it is done for tbe public good. Thelaw
is plain enough concerning the re
quiiemsnts in the administration of
every county office, and when it is not
obeyed tbe county atlo ney sbould

pecial attention to this matter. It

August we vitited the
POORHODSB AND 1N8AN8 ASYLUM.
The Poorhonee and Insane Asylum
we found in excellent condition. Dr.
Duncan, the superintendent and phy
B'cian, is unremitting in bis exertions
in discharging his dutits. The wards
and apartments of the poor unfortu
nates are kept clean and neat and tha
food is well cooked and served. There
were 76 insin and 101 sick and pau
pers; total, 177. Dr. Dancaa utilizes
tbe labor of all the inma'es who are
able to won. A bountiful sup
ply of vegetables i produced,
which adds very materially
toward les ening the supply bill.
Oa tbe 1st of May he had
195 inmates. During May, Jane and
July there were admitted 109. Tnere
were discharged 113 and died 16; total
129. Leaving on band August 1st, 175.
There are twelve employes named
upm tbe pay roll, at a cost per month
of $162. The salary of the Superin
tendent is $200 and the Commission
er's is $85. Total sa'aty account, $447.
A. 0. Wellborne, the Chairman of
the Commia ioners to this iristltu ion,
makes all the purchases of supplies
and examines minutely into every
bi'l. For the quirter endirg June 30. n
the supply bill was $2187. The ent
ries and supplies amounted to $1176
per month fjr tbe quarter. We
in cloie proximity to the Poorhooe e,in
perfect order. The Superintendent,
Mr. If. M. Thomas, and his a'siataut,
W. C Tappsootr, steward, keep the
premises in nice order. We saw the
food at dinner time, which wa wrved
to the convicts, and it was good and

We found at tbe

inmat'S; ma'es, white, 05, fena'es 16

were informed, has prevented
loose in caags ot it irom
keeping the sink und close 8
in as clebnty conditi in as thev thould
be. Tbe building was clean and tbe
different wards were in eooi order.
On the ISth of August we msde
a visit to the
located on the river, about four mi'es
below tbe city. Here tbe county owns
e'gbty acres and on the premises is
trie restnouse and potters' neid.
There we e no patients iu the est-
house; the last oue was dlecharged in
June, ints institution is In
charae of Mr. R. C. Sm th, who re
ceives a salary of $20 par month. He
furLishes his own provisoes and pays
a rentxi oi o p3r annum lor tne

Dr Cannon, receives a salary of $33
pr mouth, and Cjrom ts oner Agnew
recaivB 140 per month, whicl c sts
toma ntain this in titu-.ion monthly
$87. As a ma ter of economy it is tbe
opinion ot the jury mat 'hs office (f
commiofioner should be ab jli-hed, or
ma Btiary materially rinucea. i"e
buildings are wretched. Toeir coodi
tioa is euch that tbey ca inot be ren
dered comfortable dunrg tbe winter.
One whole end of O'e tif the wards is
nowreadyto tumb edown. We would
reccommend tbat tbese buildings be
put in good order or else torn don.
Tbev are a disgrace ti tlisc iuntr,aod
if thr were any patients there we
would feel like indicting the county
for cruelty iu haviDg no more omior
table apartments, i'hs furniture is
o'd and dilapida'ed and would make
excellent kindling wood. Our visit
to tbess institu ions occurred whwn

of the same, which we found in ex

jiier, is vigilant and attends to Ins
duties promptly. lie deserves much
credit tor the sroo 1 condition of this
icstituticn. We found on tbo jail
rotster tfiirty-eix prisoners credi el t
the county and forty to ihe e tc. Pa'.
nenetnan, the engineer, deserves
mtnt on for his efTicieccv and cLiah
at enticn in the discharge of his du
ties. The soil pipe in the jail buiHing
shou'd be lengtbnned. It is not sufli
cieotly high. By refernncs to an
bea'tu ordinance of the Taxing Dis
trict, regala'ing tbe construction of
pnblic buildings, page 140, settion 59,
the soil pipe io the ja 1 does not come
within the provision of the law.
We made an inspection cf the .
August 23J, and found but few prison
onHts occupying it, as they are dea't
with promptly and confined in the
county jail when convicted. Ths Tax

referencs to the fctn of tbe Legislature

By reference to exhibit Q ti this re

twenty months, tbe liens bave

tbess note eight are ptt due, several
are wiihout security or collators', and
a numher of them are drawn bv Dr-
sons who have fsiled in business tee
exhibit ' a. " Tbese losns are nnon
order of tbe court, and the Oierk and
Master is not respocsible for any
los es which mny occur. Eighty-five
thousand dollars is a very liberal ac
commodation to borrowers in tbe
Chancery Court. As i here is no law
fireveutng tbe court from lend
eg money, the practice will doubt-
lets lncredse as toe innos in
crease. Ine couit nugnt togua'd well
the funds of the widow, minors and
oihani, and if a loan 1b made of their
money, require gut edge" sscurity.
Thers are no over charges iu this
nffice, tbe feel are properly taxed.
Litigation is largely on the increase
820 rases have been filed in twenty
mont'is. "This is the couit where the
lawyer lis down iu green D'slures
and is led beside the at 11 wa e8."
The not'S taken on lund tales amount
to $364,082 01, and, strange to say, the
Clerk and Mailer nas do "bills receiv
able bxik." Many eot's taken for
money leaned and purchase of real
estate are barred by the statutes of
limitation. Tr is pail of the business
should be looked af'er.
