what is Hie exact extent ol the authority

Inspectors, in the event that no bid I
made for llio lease of Ihe prison and con

Section 17 authorize them, in cose there

tho company which holds the present
lease. This company Is in fact master ol
tho situation, and wo think it is also anfo
lo say Hint in Iho very nature of the cir
cumstance thero will be no seriou com
petition with the Tennessee Coal, Iron di
Usilway Company for the lease. Thcra
may bo ostensible competition, but
such competition will be merely
nominal with a private understand
ing and an agreement for tha
d.stril u i ol the lubor and a division ol
Iho sihjiIs, just a there was w hen tho pres
ent lease was bid for and secured. Sup
pose Ihe present lessees are unwilling to
pay $100,000 a year for another six-years'
term, what company can come in and
afford to lake iho lease for that term and
amount? Tlie prisoners cannot be taken
out of the Suite. If there is formed a
combination of corporation to lake tha
leo lhoe cnrpoistious will not be com

will lie in a peck of trouble with a mam

for which no provision has been made.
