The investigation of the Statu peniten

eulted in an exposure of some o the short,

must be applied to cut away its corrup

work, but more remains to ho done.
Under Itadic.il administrations an Inves
tigation of tho penitentiary was found to
be impossible. Committees were ordered
to Investigate time and again; hut always
failed to discover anything. Tho Demo
crats on the committee, in some myste

follow the Radicals, and help them cover
up the shortcomings and corruptions ol
that institution. Hut nt last thu truth Is

GnsTLUMr.N The ittulcrslgned, consti
tuting iliu subtummlttco iippoluted by
you to Investigate the management of thu
State penitentiary, at Jollet, beg leave to
report as follows :
In pursuance of their duty, your com
mittee examined u large number of wit
nesses, and herewith submit the evidence
taken by the committee, and the docu
mentary proof Introduced In evidence.
V'oureoininlttee would report that they
have come to the following conclusions
from the evidence submitted :
1. Your committee llnd gross Irregu
laris In thu purchasing of beef for the
penitentiary, under the contract of Uap
pel & Co. This contract was entered In
to on November 'JOtli, 187:1, between Itap
pel & Co. ami thu penitentiary commis
sioners' Cnnlshi'', llalneaml S.iulhworth,
mil It provides that Itappll it Co. flionlil
nirnl-li to the penitentiary three hundred
anil t'orty-tlvu head id' cattle, at such
lines ami hi such quantities as should be
required, ami that sueli cattle should lie
"good fat native steers" ami cows, not
u-s.s than one-third to be native steer.
'ttletly butchers' stock, weighing 1)00
,ioumls ami upwards, for which they
.ere to leeelvu $;J 05 per 100 pounds In
ivelght. TJieeviifence shows that tin to
Vugilst. 1871. tho cattle received Hero noi
ii accordance with the contract ; that the,
attic were poor and Ihlu, and not siinlV
Viittle us are called "buich-rs' stock ;''
hat thu larger proportion wore cows, and
ver one-third of the cows were with
calf; t halt he average weight of the calves
with the bag. taken from the cows when
nilteliered, was sixty pounds; that man v
t the steers were not native steers, but
iJlicrolice cattle; that many were bruised
unl when killed, were covered with, pu
triil sores and unlit lor use ; that some of
Mich cattle were thrown away, unlk. lor
isc, and In some Instances lei I to the i:on-
viets ; that. In some Instance.-, the meat
.vas so putrid that the convicts -otiKi not
a i u, aim nie consequence was tuafu re

The evidence further showslhatmanv

Hie evidence also shows that the master

quality of the beet solundshed. and that

in the contract. Upon MaJorMcClaugli-
ry entering upon ins (iiities as warden,

ivgnlaritles hi the contracts made by tho
penitentiary commissioners for the manu
facture of tobacco and cigars. The rec
ords of the penitentiary (copies of which
vo herewith submit) show that, on Sep-u-mber
11. 187U. tho commissioners en
tered into a contract with. I. U. Fuller fur
thu mannlaetiiro of eighty thousand ci
gars per day by machinery, ami for which
they were to receive S.t.'Jj pur tliou-and,
ami 2 cenu per pound for other niauutae

it. McKay entered Into the contract as a
partner ol . 1. 1 Killer. On September
i.i. ioi.i, ,i. y r iiner, ami Held ,v Jones
ueceeded Fuller and .McKay in the eon

the contract : and on Nov. 12. Is;:t. tin.

with Held. Jones & Co.. mniilnir t,,r

instead of bv uiaehiiiery, as lu thu former
contract. The evidence shows that al
most the same amount of labor was re
quired under each contract, and that tho
earnings to the peiilteutlar.i. under tliul.ist
contract, was about one thousand dullar.s
less per mouth than under the first con
tract, mils making a loss to thu peniten
tiary of SIOOU per mouth.
lour coininltteo therefore state, first,
that the commissioner acted without au
thority of law in letting a contract before
the expiration of a loriuer contract fur
the same labo; second, the commission
ers had no right by Jaw to extend a
contract beyond Its. original time of ex
piration. II. The eomml-sioners had no right
by law to receive new turtles to
a contract then in force, or ratify any such
I. It was gross Irregularity for the
commissioner lo malum new coiitractat

dollars per month, when a conir-.iei wn.

in,) one uiuiisami miliars per inouiii more

Tho evidence further shows that no
limit was placed on the number of com
viet eaed miner the cigar contract, ami
that there had been einploved an aver.i"o
ol ouo hundred and llliy per (lav. at tho
rate of thirty cents per d.iv for each con
vlcl's labor. About one-half of the eon
vlets were able-bodied men. Under the
contracts, able-bodied convicts liroii"hi
an average of seventy cents for each day's
The evidence also shows that the able

contracts eould havo been leased to oiiir
contractors at an average of about seven-

7. Your coininltteo would further re
port that the evidence shows that, since
August 1, 1873, there has been on deposit
in the State National Itauk of Sprluglleld,
of tlie. funds of H.u penitentiary an aver
age of $10,000 per month; that slneo tho
1st ol August, 1871, under the warden
ship of Major It. W. Miibaiighcry, there
has been received on such deposits Inter
est at the rale of-l per cent, lor the llrst
six mouths, and (J per cent, slue that
time: that from Aiigu-t 1.1 ' ' rust
1,1874, the penitentiary ico ivi i no in
terest; that the State National Hank paid
Interest on these deposits. It Is also
shown by the evidence that thu warden
of the penitentiary. Major J. V. Wham,
was Informed that this bank would pay
Interest on these deposits, but none was
demanded by hhu; that hail Interest been
demanded, there would havo accrued to
tho penitentiary thestini of $'-r00 from
August t, 1873, to August 1, 1871.
Inippearsiroui the evidence of J. K.
H'iilttemore, cashier of the State National
Hank, that in October, 1873, Major Wham
was inlormcd that If the depo-its re
mained in that bank, interest would be
paid, which has not been demanded, and
is stilt due the state. Wo call attention
to the fact that liy Iho law the warden
and the conuuN-lonrrsoI'lhe penitentiary
are responsible for the Ihuincial manage
ment of the penitentiary, ami It Is their
duty lo manage the funds of the peniten
tiary. 8. There have been other irregulari
ties, such ai a loon' management hi the
stouedeparlnient ofthe penitentiary prior
to August 1. 1873, in tlie inaniicroi draw
ing supplies without proper vouchers on
requisition, the exact amount of which
we are uuableto learn, but would call at
tention lo the testimony or Capt. Hall,
!. Vonr committee would make men
tion of the payment of VJiO to D. 11. Ma
son, after he had resigned as prison phy
sician. It appears from the oWdcneo that
this money was paid to hhu asagratultv,
ami with the knowledge of the governor,
and by the order ofthe commissioners.
10. Your committee would further
stale that they have taken considerable
evidence In regard to the treatment of
convict-mid their punishment, and Ituil
that prior to August, 1871, there have
been many lii-tauces of extreme cruel
.treatment of convicts; that It has been
customary to keep convicts many davs
in the solitary, lialucd for hours to tiiu
ring-bolt, mid given during that time one
half of a slice of bread ami one pint of
water each 21 hours lor food. Of particu
lar Instances of cruelly, the committee
call attention to the testimony of Win. J.
Deeming, Stephen I.'eed ami 'James Jef
fries. Oi. that point the evidence shows,
that in some cacs canvlcls have
been kuuckeil down by heavy
cane, uud otherwise Inhuin . dy
treated, rcstlltlng. in fonie eais,
In thu permanent Injury of the convict.
ii. inoiiicipitnc ol the penitentiary
lias been good since August 1, 1871. In
consequence of dlfllcullles, it appears
from the evidence that about July. 1871
.iiajor .i. v. Wham removed Captain
Hall from the position of deputv warden.
" hereupon the commissioners removed
Major H ham from the poItlon of war
den, ami the governor thereupon re
moved Commissioner Maine i.uil Can-i-iu.
and appointed Major Wham as one
