The grand jury respectfully submits !
the following final report
The number of bills of indictment
that have been presented during its
sitting attest the fact that the county
is not free from law breakers.
It will be found, howerer, that most
of the offenders charged aro of the
grade of misdemeanors, and ol those
the greater number are for violations
of the laws against gaming, selling
lottery tickets, andtrafficking on Sun
day. It is not probable that this class
of offenders will decrease until there
exist a much stronger public senti
ments demanding its suppression,
offenses against the person aod against
property have not been of more fre
quent occurrance than is perhaps
common in all populous communities.
The laws, in these respects, appear to
have been observed and enforced with
commendable faithfulness, and the
grand jury believe that nowhere can
bo found better protection to life, per
son and property than is given in Mc
The county is in good condition
financially. The report on this sub
ject of the honorable county judge,
which is herein appended, is full and
explicit, and is of especial interest to
the taxpayers of the county. The sug
gestion therein in regard to roads and
the means whereby greater imprpve
ments of this character may be secur
ed, are commended to the public at
tention. COUNTY JAIL.
Complaint having been mado that
prisoners bold in tho oounty itil had
suffered greatly In their health from
being two much crowded, careful at
tention was given thoroto. A com
mittee from tho grand jury exam
ined carefully the condition of tho
prison wards, heard reports of tho
oounty judge, sheriff, jailers and
county physician and found that said
oomplaints havo been somewhat ex
aggerated, Tboro does not appear to
havo beon any sorious sickness except
in cases of disease oontracted prior to
incarceration. Tho prisiners gonor-
ally havo been remarkably healthful.
It is true, howover, that tho prison
department is not sufficient in capac
ity for tho county's needs, and it is
not as woll lighted or ventilatod as it
One doplorable evil growing out of
laok of proper prison accommodation
is tho fact that young boys and also
persons suffering from montal derange
ment aro obliged to be confined in
oorapany with old and hardened
offenders, beoauso thero is no other
safe placo in which to keep them.
No fault is found with tho officers in
charge. Tho inmates of the jail havo
been woll fed and made as comforta
ble as tho condition of their safekeep
ing would admit. Tho grand jury
offers no suggestion as to the proper
remedy for this existing prison dofi
oioncy, but refers the matter to the
konorablo county commissioners, to
whose jurisdiction it properly bolongs,
Tho homo provided for poor and in
digent persons was carefully inspoctcd

Pursuant 'o the requirements of this
statuto the superintendent of tho cen
sus is now tabulating the results of
that inquiry. On the 20th of July last
he gavo to the country, through the
medium of the Associated Press, his
estimate of the probable results of this
work, showing that 2,260,000 farms
and homes were encumbered by mort
gages, aggregating $2,565,000,000.
Since that time the superintendent
has completed the tabulation as to fivo
states Alabama, Kansas, Tennessee,
Illinois and Iowa from which it is
apparent that his estimate is likely to
be very considerably increased when
the accurate totals shall be finally
I whs, thcreforo, Mr. Chairman,
tluito surprised to bear the Btatomcnt
from tho eminent gentleman from
Maino, Govornor Dingloy, in a recant
debate, when ho doolarcd his opinion
that the investigation was orderod
originally, "not from onconomic con
siderations, having refcronco to tho
public wolfaro, but for partisan rea
sons," and further asserted that tho
statistics as to tho fivo states rovcalod
tho fact that tho "mortgages upon tho
farms have generally doorcasod within
a fow years, notwithstanding tho in
crease of tho number of farms."
Mr. Chairman, 1 havo mado an
analysis of extra oonsus bulletin 10,
whioh gives tho "statistics of farms,
homes and mortguges" in tho fivo
states to whioh I havo alluded. This
shows that iustcad of a deurcoso in
the numbor and amount of mortgages,
there has boon an actual incrcaso in
ovory ono of t e states from 188(5 to
1890 incluflivc. The number of
mortgages incrcaso from 738,590 in
1880 to 923,4(17 in 1880, whilst tho
