The sonate was not in eussioit. No
HJOUSE OF lIRRSEsENTATIV}E.
Tho first business was the reading
of the mossago from the governor in
relation to tho penitentiary, in
which ho recommnends the labor of
the convicts be leased out ; he has
no doubt of the practicability of
such at plan, and bag repeatedly
urged its adoptioni.
If this bo not done, hi) sece }1o
way of reducing tho appropriation
bolow $40,000, especiall-y in view of
I the present number of convitth. Ho
also sugg"ests that $3,000 of the ap
propriationi be nude inppflicablo to
repalirug the roof,
Several membemrl gaVo notice of
now bills of It.i:al importanco only.
A comnnmunicationi was received
from Colonel Parnole, sWperinten
dent of the penitentiary, through
JIon. H'. E. Hayno, chairman of the
board of directors, in which ho says
that $40,000 would be required for
the maintenano of the institution,
and is confident that it can be shown
to be imfpossible to conduct the in
stitution for ia los sum than ho has
named without subjoeCting the in
niateis to privattion and illpairing the
liscipline of the penitentiary. The
average number of inmates per day
for tho first' three months of last
fiscal your was only 1.318, whereas
there are now 35) in coilnojmeint.
The number of prospective iniatos
now actually uder Ientoneo in the
variot county jails is estimated
at, sixty, which, with those who are
likely to bo convicted during the
conmig tenus of court., will place
our daily average for fiscal year
over 100.
